That was one of the most frustrating and unpleasant event these past few months... even though I can play a tad more since I work from home, I will not be able to finish this event on time since I need something called sleep and I still need to do my job! I did set timers and all, but there is a limit! Having at least two bottlenecks for the same event and no adventures to be able to compensate is awful game development. Really disappointed in this event.
Little tip. I?ve been crafting 1-5 gems in the royal exchange. When the portal gets to 29:99 I use one gem to get the monster. I wasn?t gonna be able to finish the event if not for this. Have 1 more key to make
I don?t actually have gems to spare, I spent all but 8 of them speeding up timers trying to make oxa saddles. BUT... I kept plugging away, and now that the Oxas are also occasionally spawning the gigantic portalpillars, I think I can make it. In my secondary kingdom, I?m currently crafting key #6! And in my primary kingdom, I?m 4 larvae away from key #6. If I can get 1 of them before school, I think I can get the rest after school. I?m in the pacific time zone, so it?s going to be close.

Very unlikely to make it unless I get up every hour all night, or spend gems (not interested in doing that for a daily energy dropper, cute as it is). And I will be busy watching the inauguration in the morning!
From what I understand Pavo is one of the best daily Energy droppers there is. (5+ Energy)

I don't know if it is confirmed this will be a guaranteed Trade Ticket dropper (just like Piggy Cottage and Bamboo Grove) but chances are high it will be.
That are 2 excellent prizes.
With the speed up time for the portal only being 2 Gems, I would seriously look at what it would cost you to finish.
Worst event ever. I even bought an extra purple plant for gems and I wont be able to finish.

I have plenty energy droppers, plenty energy and am always maxed out on trade tickets, no matter how fast I try to make expansion permits. These prizes are not worth me losing sleep over. And while I would buy the value pack to complete it, there is only one portal key per 9.99 value pack. I'm not spending $30 to get three keys. That is just ridiculous.

I love the idea and new caracters in the kingsize but I think I skipp the next event to take a rest (working at my kingdom mmmmm what to do first ;-) ).

Unimpressed that the portal gives only XP and that I'm stuck with that unstorable flower for now. But, it's done!
We won't know the real drops from the completed Portal til the event officially ends today.
And just a honest question- how can a player be maxed on trade tickets when there are expansion permits to be made for the explorers permits?
But maybe they're fully expanded
Maybe I'll see that better when I'm a little further along.
