    Those who lack 1 flag or brazier to upgrade to lvl 6,
    I suggest you to consider to skip with gems if you can.
    It's worth it as the stone drop rate will be 18 stones per collection.
    Other rates seem also increased. E.g. I had 3 boars from harvesting 16 glimmer bulbs
    And that gives me 5 sun stones. Think about it. I think it's worth spending the gems for the last item for your upgrading.

    Sun Stones drop rate increase from the Tent after each Tent upgrade Yes.

    Sun Stones drop rate from other resource has nothing to do with the Tent upgrade.

    My personal drop rate so far is just under 25% - 5 braziers in 21 diligent collections since reaching level 3. At this rate, I'll have enough braziers to reach level 7 with 4 or 5 days left in the event. That's not terrible, but not great, and that's with what I think is a rather diligent collection rate of 5 a day. If going forward I start getting drops a third of the time, that would save me 3 days.

    Whenever I read about someone getting a really great drop rate in these quests, I figure there's someone else out there that's getting a really low drop rate as a statistical offset.

    I assume the drop rate of sunstones is much better for higher level tents, but even though I've been reading all the posts, I don't recall the specifics and I don't see the tent drop rates listed on the first page. But if so, it would be advantageous to be able to update the tent sooner than later.
    It's 24 stones every 4 hours at level 7. I have impulse control issues and gemmed through

    If you completed the Troll questline, and Kaz went away, then the trolls went with him and aren't spawning right now.

    For this reason, I parked a boar again and haven't fought beasts since the quest to kill 5 of them. I'm at nearly 1200 sunstones, and averaging 224 per day just with 2 manticores, 4 dragons, tent, crafting, rocks, and quests (yup, no Alicorn!); so fighting is kind of unnecessary IMO. I'll clear 4000 by the time the event is done.

    Yes, level 7 seems to be the cap for now. Info about what's needed for each level is in post #2 of this thread.

    May be not for you, but it works for me.
    I think I am getting sun stones faster.

    Some of my neighbours have placed it behind the purple cow, one behind dragons; I have it behind a manticore.

    Really? The pyre fly cage is sitting in a teeny pile of troll snot. I can only assume from its design that the cage is top heavy, and the troll snot is being used like epoxy to keep it from falling over. Sigh.

    I don't know why my brazier drop rate is so low! My tent is at level 6, I'm working on updating it to level 7. I have 12 flags so far and only 1 brazier! I wish my drop rate for braziers was 1 out of 3 or 1 out of 4 like all of you guys are saying!
