    Did you craft 1?
    The image disappears after you have crafted 1 since that is all we are allowed to make.

    I still have the glimmer alicorn in MRC.

    I tend to forget to send out adventures, often stemming from a concern that I'll forget and need them for the event. I have a differing thought on cooking camp vs cabbage hut. I tend to see the rewards in the Baron's tent more valuable than rewards from the adventures. So I'm happier with the cabbage hut. But some folks are very consistent in doing adventures, who don't have feast droppers, and would find the cooking camp very useful.


    About the lobster coins, I think it is common to find folks so annoyed by the leaderboard that they put more energy into gold tokens for the MRC than in pushing for the top one and two slot in leaderboard (< usually me). The fastest way to get the gold tokens is probably to repeatedly spawn golems from horses with one click. The lobster tokens can take multiple clicks to spawn the needed monster. And other items are needed for the combine in the magic forge. As mentioned earlier, I do think there is a strategy used that holds all of the crafted turn in items until the end to get an unexpected surge in points, but often there is a wait of maybe two? minutes between turn ins for items of the same type. So you can't spam them as fast as one might think.

    I spent my energy and time for the Troll Tokens in the last three LB events and even though it was never my intention to win the LB, I still ended up placing 1st or 2nd because of the massive number of points you gain from repeatedly chopping Golems.

    If you plan to craft and deliver the items for extra LB points, you have to consider the 1-minute 45-second wait between the delivery of the items. Never accumulate 100s of the items till the final hour to get a jump on your opponents. The way I did it before, was to craft the 15-minute items and deliver them while chopping Golems. That way, if I had a boost activated, I would also benefit from 2x the points awarded for each item delivered. I would never craft the 30 point items as they took the same amount of time to craft as the 45 point items. I would craft the 45 point items overnight or while I was working since they took 4 hours.

    I think Spiritwind’s list is where I found the cap. It surprised me too.

    The crafts for the animals from the start of the MRC seem to disappear after you have reached the max. I actually like it because now I’m not scrolling through a bunch of grayed out crafts to get to the ones I can make. I wish they had kept that for all of the animals.

    They drop between 4 and 5 Sword Tokens and 1 or 2 Staff Tokens (+ Shield Tokens, Feathers enz.)
    Thanks for the quick fix S8!
    Question because I cannot math today, I haz teh dumb: are they a better source for tokens than Golems?

    Skyhawk has high token drop rate. I will alternate troll-skyhawk so the balance between shield and sword tokens, allowing me to avoid lot's bronze trades.

    During MH, Lorelei's fountain has a *chance* to drop gold troll tokens. not often. and not outside of MH events. but it's pretty and gives water, fish, mermaid scales, etc just like any pond.
    Thank you very much for the info. I don't have the fountain yet - I only have one sapphire so far.

Do you know how many rounds it takes to make a Sweet Feast from scratch? omg!) But I wouldn't give up my cooking camp (although I still haven't gotten a cabbage hut lol.) The cooking camp isn't even limited, it cooks every single non-quest recipe but the last 2 on the list.
    Everything I have read and heard before today supports what you are saying - get the cooking camp as soon as possible, so that is my plan.
