    i read low level is 15-30. Your quantities needed will be less I assume, but you can still look ahead to see what's needed for future chapters. The main thing is to keep your chapter open for as long as possible and collect, collect, collect.
    Good luck.

    This has set me back enormously. I was really enjoying this event until I came across the non dropping of onyx petals. This added to the upcoming demands for future Chapters I think I am forced to opt out.

    Even with that lucky spawn of the shrub off the purple table giving me a total of 2 plants now, I'm STILL not at 15 petals! If I'm going to have to wait two hours, the least those plants could do is guarantee a petal drop >:|

    Sp I'm stuck on yesterday. I've got sleep issues so I'm pretty much awake/asleep at random so I'm getting most refreshes of them every 2 or so hours, yay left over mono effects for me for 7 months and still going. My life is one that should make events easier since I'm able to click the stuff far more than someone with a life lol

    It seems like anyone with a normal life would struggle far worse. Maybe I'm doing the event wrong.
    I use android and I do hit yes on new neighbors.
    I play Castle Story (DS and FS burnout, I'll be back to those though).
    I don't usually read my wall in the games.

    I have amended my original post and it would be good if you could delete your copy so people won't get wrong data from my silly error.

    SPIRIT WIND... Sorry but you will need to correct your post 1 to change the above requirements for chapter 10, goal 3.
    I feel so bad getting it wrong!

    I shouldn't post when fuzzy headed and lack of sleep!
    I think I fixed my post based on your new info AND I fixed my math error on Chapter 7 -10 as well... Even with your revised Chapter 10, the Onyx Crystal required is even worse than I had posted(70 versus 65).

    20 adventures later I have grown the whole forest of pretty purple tress and haven't seen a single dahlia. Drop rate is cosmic, and so I am a day behind already. At this point I am pondering whether to cave in and buy another dahlia (really pondering, the final chapters are tough and I am not sure I will finish the event) or whether to save myself some frustration and opt out early. Decisions, decisions.

    I've chosen to view this as a weeklong boar hunt. I will continue to limp along with the other goals, but I'm not going to let the event stress me out.

    I just collected from my dahlia and got yet another set of Scorched Wings instead of Onxy Petals. And my rewards from the adventures (that I have been faithfully sending out) have been pretty disappointing. So unless they make the drops less random - or start increasing the amount of items you get from the adventures, it's not looking promising - especially since from what I hear the Onxy Crystals are even worse! It's a shame.

    I just collected from the onyx temple and got 2 scorched rose petals. Really! Roses reset every 10 minutes. It's hard to even take this event seriously.

    Agreed. I haven't done the math (probably won't lol) but from reading, I don't see much future need for those wings and yet they are dropping from everywhere. The temple, the adventure, the roses and especially the dahlias! I'm at 0/15 onyx petals for the day 5 upgrade but I've got plenty of scorched wings I may never need.

    Yesterday I thought having extra dahlias might help, but reading ahead to the need for onyx orbs or crystals or whatever they're called, makes me realize all the dahlias in the world won't really help.

    As Lorrainne said earlier, after a month or so of S8 rebuilding goodwill, it's very sad that they've so rapidly gone back to the same old, same old. Without changes of timers or drop rates, finishing this one appears impossible without spending money/gems, even for players who can play constantly.

    It's sad to see so many opting out so early, but I don't blame them. I'm sticking with it for now, but it's looking pretty hopeless.

    Although I am discouraged, I would like to shout out and give a huge thanks to those who are forging ahead and sharing with us. Y'all rock! Without your generosity in sharing ahead, these events would be absolutely impossible for many players. As always, you are much appreciated!

    3x crystalized block.

    This is as correct as my notes are but human brain error does occur sometimes.

    Sorry for any bad news but at least you know and can decide to do or not!
    Personally I would not have gemmed ahead or spent any gems at all if I had known the rediculous drop rates. In fact I would not have participated.
    Hopefully Onyx pearls will drop for you! They didn't for me, so I only have 1 to collect from and it's very frustrating.

    Thank you so much! SW[/QUOTE

    First of all, thank you so much for all your hard work! After collecting from temple, adventure and the dalia this morning, all I received was one petal, a tree and crystallized wood! This has been the typical drops for me and I have done at least 6 adventures. It is my opinion that there is no way anyone will be able to complete this event with drop rates this low without spending money or gems! Now maybe I'm just unlucky but after reading some of the previous post this sounds very typical for this event. This is another event that I won't be able to complete. I purchased the first package but will not spend anymore money on this event after reading what the requirements will be! I won't be a sucker again! Good luck!
