    Thought I wanted the snowballs craft. Wrong. Having a 6 hour craft in the wagon turned out to be a deadly trap. Instead of spending 3s for a gold trade now the wagon is out for 6 hours. No monster hunt for 6 hours. Agrrrrrrrrrrr. Or pay up the gems. Genius. Just genius S8

    Troll sparring pit (guaranteed troll spawn)
    Lair of beasts (guaranteed monster spawn)
    Go through inventory for any monster traps I may have forgotten or not known I had.
    What monster statues are you referring to? Thanks,

    Information about the Statues

    History of the Statues
    * The 3 monster statues were originally awarded as decoration for completing Season 1.
    * Season 2 saw the return of the statues as a source of drops of specific types of tokens. Once placed on your board they have a 22 hour collection timer on them.
    * In Season 3, the 3 statues became a craft in the Trade Wagon. They were only available as a craft, not a reward from goals. The craft was only available during this season. [This craft is no longer available; it was exclusive to Season 3.] | Skunkupine - 10 gold tokens | Fangbeast - 25 gold tokens | Dire boar - 50 gold tokens
    * The statues have not been available for players as separate crafts or rewards since season 3.

    Drops from Statues:
    Skunkupine Statue: shield tokens (around 5 per collection)
    Fangbeast Statue: sword tokens (around 2 per collection)
    Dire boar Statue: staff tokens (around 1 per collection)

    Ouch! I'm not participating in the Snowball event, but for those who are this is terrible.
    Sorry you have to wait 6 hours Melany77. Hopefully your post helps other players not to walk into the same trap/ reminds them to time the Snowball craft carefully.

    My direwolf drops just about ONLY 20 each time as well. I did the math, wizard portal WAY better. Fully upgraded my first, going for a second this week. : )

    Edit add - sorry, thought I had responded to earlier comment. Anywho, with a 5 hour timer, you can collect at least 3 times a day. Fully upgraded, -
    3 collections x 8 energy (that's 24) less 3 energy for collection is 21 energy gain per day.

    You essentially get a direwolf's worth PER DAY, and keep in mind a fully upgraded portal is 170 gold coins total (2 direwolves worth, still way worth it)

    For the basic portal, when you get 4 energy per collection, over 5 days, 3 collections a day -
    15. Collections x 4 energy is 60, less the 15 per collection, 45 energy net gain guaranteed....

    ...Versus the probable 20 from a direwolf every 5 days. Some people have very very productive direwolves, very diff stats from what mine gives. But you have to be quite lucky.

    Hope this helps people w decision making. : )

    If it's ok with you, I'll use this on page 1 as a nice summary as it goes a little further to what I already had. Thanks ginerp!

    Thank you for posting that on page 1, SW. Thank you ginerp for posting. : D

    A bit of my opinion/assessment on the kitty tokens in terms of strategy in case it is useful to anyone.

    They seem fairly pointless, actually. I think I am better off going for monsters rather than for the leaderboard points if you aren't overly into leader boards (which I am not) and into gold coins (which I am).

    Horses come full grown, so if you buy a bunch of them all you have to do is wait and you have a guaranteed Spawn.

    I join the others who do not wish to compete with our lovely community members. I wish they were away for everybody to get the big prize irrespective of their level. I REALLY don't like competing in this community even when/if I stand a good chance of winning.

    Best wishes to all.

    Ugh. Leaderboard. I loathe these as they are so unfair.

    It says on page 1: * DON'T tap the troll pit. The following do not drop tokens - trolls, pink skunkupine, pink alicorn, wedding alicorn, gem horses. Edit: trolls may be included but they change from season to season.

    So I don't know if tapping the troll pit is a good idea...

    Got some gold troll tokens already, but I just don't know what to use them on...
