That's a lot of wax! That much has me worried, I'm usually lucky if I get 2 from my 5 hives!
Good morning! I'm happy to report that I now basically have my materials collected and am just waiting for the beeswax (another 5 days, probably, before that's done). I started the event with pretty much exactly 2k energy and ran out by the beginning of the weekend. That was great timing for me, because on the weekend I have more leisure to play CS every 1-2 hours and take full advantage of the free energy refills. I spent no gems, but I did use a few elven boosts to speed up the potion shop - before I ran out of glimmerdust and couldn't replenish it fast enough, lol.
All in all, I'm happy I decided to participate in the event after all, and that I'll now be able to save up some energy again before the next one. Best of luck to everyone else who is still chopping away at the honey trees!
I’m also just building the bee box’s and I’ve been doing this quest continually since it started. However having just realized I have 36 hive kits (2 levels) to build still ahead of me, I think I might be out. Such a shame, why are these quests so repetitive, boring and hard? It started off so well I thought. I have 3 glimmer troves and still don’t see how I’m going to generate enough glimmer dust. It’s become work
Encouragement to all, echoing and expanding. : ) This isn't as bad as the weird pig event where I got to an L5 upgrade but could NOT get further even w dedicated play. As others have said, stick in there, rely on your free refills as needed, and keep on increasing your energy droppers over time.
Glimmer dust troves drop occasionally from the deep dark cave adventure, so you may wish to focus on those until you have what feels like enough. I bought two ages ago but have about 20 now from adventure rewards.
All senior 50s (if you all don't mind my using that term) : ) went through that uncomfortable transition from saving a bit of energy and then needing the refills.... then needing the refills less and less often.... then not needing them. Just keep playin'! : D
And best of luck w collection drops!
I am at L6, have made all my hive gear now for the last level, and now mainly waiting for the beehive drops for the candles. Although I don't like the carving into my energy reserves this deeply, and much prefer less intensive events, I do appreciate, very much :
- the art work
- that we don't have to be leashed to our devices every two hours for random drops (it's own lack of intensity, v much appreciated!)
- the main prize.
Best wishes to all, incl S8 staff! Be well, all!
Not accepting neighbors. Sorry. Gratitude for all forum contributors and leaders. This game would be unplayable without you.
