    Finished Chapter 1. I bought the Greek Temple and built level 1, but everything else Featured on the Market (Limestone, Statue etc) is grayed out as locked by goal. Chapter 2 isn't due for another 17 hours. What is the unlock step for the market items? Or have y'all gemmed ahead to a later chapter? I'm confused. :-(

    The drop rate gets worse with each collection. My forth time collecting yielded 6 out of 10.

    TheLimestone will drop more than 15 rocks.
    Fortunately, for me the drop rate on the Greek Statue has gotten better with each collection. I am lucky! For once…

    It has a 5 minute recharge, so it depends on how often you can check in.

    I bought 10 and spent an hour this morning collecting 99 blocks. 310 needed in total. Since there is a 99 inventory limit, the rest of the days will be replacing the 15-40 used on the previous days. I am keeping track of how many I have actually collected so I don't gather more than 310 total. The last day requires 80.

    I hope the following thoughts answers your question- mainly on these story book events the trick is to not finish the chapter. Keep it open. For instance don't do that upgrade. Even wait for next day. That way everything stays "open" and you can continue collecting or crafting, and I guess in your case available to buy in market.
    DON'T gem ahead. This doesn't get you any further ahead.
    BTW- don't worry about your situation right now. You'll have time to do a lot of catching up when next chapter opens.

    Thank you so much for responding! I revised my post. Chapter 2 hasn't started yet. You must be right about finishing chapter 1, I didn't remember that bit until after. Weird that Chapter 1 didn't have us place the temple, then I would have seen the goodies on the market. Gah. Oh, well. Thanks again.

    In the meantime I am using my energy on a main storyline quest. One of my small (usually 4-6 energy) alicorns gave me a windfall drop of 100 energy so I got a lot done. So I got that going for me. Which is nice. :-)

    I have 5 but I might get 5 more to make life easier. On average I’ve been getting 2.5 when collecting from all 5 so on the last day I’ll have to make over 30 collections which will be tough.

    You can collect ahead as long as you don?t close the chapter - though the limit is 99. I have found that can make all the difference in the world between finishing and not.

    This is an important tip.

    I just got a trade ticket and an expansion permit. This was at least the second time. I usually tap several ticket droppers at a time so it could have happened more than twice. He is cute and only takes up one square. Other ticket droppers often drop earth wisps or lanterns which I am often maxed on. It takes 30 tickets for one expansion permit. I think it's definitely worth waiting a week for.

    It's worth waiting a week if it drops Expansion Permits, of course. But it's far from a guaranteed drop.
    I've collected from him every week since we got him and I always get just a Trade Ticket, with 1 exception.
    I much rather have a Trade Ticket dropper with rare Expansion Permit drops and a 22 hour timer.
    Even if the chance of the EP is twice as high, waiting of whole week for it is way to much.
    And it's a Gem Trap risk.
    But he is cute and I'm keeping him.. I just don't think it's that good of a price, and I don't like S8 being so extreme with waiting time.. we get 'better chances' but it has to be compensated like this?
