Incidental diamonds when flower collecting

[Post New]by rbsworld on May 29, 14 2:42 PM
Hello fellow questers,

Has anyone received a diamond lately when searching for flowers? Before the update I'd get a diamond every once in a while instead of the 10 coins for the five flowers I'd collect. I could almost count on getting one diamond at least once every other day depending on the number of hours I played. I haven't received any for flower collecting since the update. Has anyone??? or is this something they deleted with the update?

JKim

Actually, I am getting more than I did before the update.......getting about 2 a day now. Before the update I might get one every other day.

Well let's all persevere .... let's go out and get those diamonds!!!

Happy Questing,

JKim

ps. Has anyone actually collected the level 3 achievement amount of 10,000 flowers? and if so, how long did it take you? Just the idea makes me crazy and I'm about 1/2 way there (flowers...I'm talking about flowers....lol)

I've gotten one diamond so far since the update and have all the trophies for the 10,000 flowers collected but I can't tell you how long it took me to get there as I didn't keep track. It was awhile ago though as I'm now on level 24 but I'm sure others will be around shortly to tell you exactly when they got there.

It really depends on how much time a day you spend collecting flowers! I've heard of people who regularly get 200+ a day, but they're spending hours playing and specifically going for flowers. I just gather them as I'm playing the HOS a few times a day and I haven't gotten there after several months. It does help to be able to see the dang things. I had to change my screen settings because I could't find them most of the time.

I currently have 29,378 flowers. I play all the HO scenes and collect all the flowers each time. I know it doesn't sound like much to get 10 coins for every 5 flowers, but it really does add up especially when you're really low on coins. I don't play every day and some days I only play a couple times around the HO scenes, but I always, always collect the flowers.

As far as the diamonds, they have been really stingy with me. I didn't get many before any of the updates and I don't get many now. This entire week I've gotten 2.

I got lots and lots of diamonds before the update - probably once every 50-100 flowers. Since then, I've collected about 4000 more and have received 3 diamonds.

I think someone at Elephant is sitting there randomly pushing a button for a diamond, and if you happen to be collecting your fifth flower at that point, you get the diamond.......

zephyr,
I'd hope it's not one of the Elephants pushing the buttons. That's what the trained monkeys are for! If the monkey union ever heard about that there'd be trouble in elephant-land. Let's hope the Fish are keeping an eye on that

Here's my update...

In the last two days, I've received 3! Those are the only ones I've received since the update. I think it's just a random thing...glad it's still part of the game.

I got really lucky last night and they actually gave me 3 diamonds in 30 minutes! My mouth popped open when I saw the third one come up. I have gotten 6 diamonds since the update but it took about 3 days to even see the first one.

I've had around 2 diamonds since the update, and i'm clicking away at them to my hearts content, i've clicked on 17,259 so it's definitely not for the want of trying.

Funnily enough someone on my friends list pm'ed me to ask how I was going with the diamonds, she said since the update she was getting plenty more so I guess we're divided into two groups, those that do and those that don't, good luck to all who are getting them I only wish I was

Somebody at Elephant doesn't like some of us.... I wonder if those who get the occasional diamond have ever bought any?

I get them regularly, I thought it was like every 10k or so, but at least at couple last week! My gosh guppies! I barely have 10k! Love that they fixed the problem, I rarely lose them anymore when I click 5 flowers.

Diamonds? What are these foreign things of which you speak?..... My
diligent flower collecting as I travel through the castle and town has yielded me zip in the past 3 days.....
