Seasoned Players, Tell Us About Christmas!

[Post New]by begwood1 on Nov 20, 15 10:37 AM
Oh you wise and exalted long-time players, please tell us newbies a Christmas story. What was the Christmas special event like last year? We understand that this year's might or might not be the same, but what was the first one like?

What's all this we hear about needing a boatload of airship items to get us through? How many is a boatload? How will we be earning all those Christmas cards we notice in the achievements section? How will we be getting our greedy little hands on all those pet eggs that we see tempting us occasionally on the wheel?

Thanks for sharing your hard-earned experience with the newcomers! Christmas is just around the corner ...

This is an exciting time for us players that just started this year. For the people that have already accomplished the achievements will there be new ones that will make it double hard for the newbee's? Or???
I am nervous that I won't get all the fall items.

Yes Virginia Begwood .........what Danger said..........pretty much like this Halloween one.....except you get Ornaments from the HOS's instead of candy.......need a specified number of ornaments to do the DQ's (and an achievement) which earned you Christmas cards..........cards needed to craft the Christmas pets.......ummm.....morphing snowflakes instead of pumpkins. I think the Christmas eggs came from doing the DQ's........

A couple avatars..........an Elf and Santa. 🎅

The dice guy was Santa instead of a skeleton. Had to send the airship a bunch (stock up)........airship was Santa's Sleigh.......

I heard there will be added stuff to do this Christmas for those of us who already did last year.............

I am sure I am forgetting something..............

Lots of fun; lots of new pets that deliver gold chests and don't require much pet food. We understand that this year's might or might not be the same, but what was the first one like?

What's all this we hear about needing a boatload of airship items to get us through? The current airship demands--the Halloween event--are much more reasonable. 5 of each item requested. If I remember correctly, we needed between 10 to 15 for each item (it varied), which took up a lot of the cards. How many is a boatload? Nearly every other quest required airship to be sent. So we were sending it out as fast as it came back 4 hours later, or using diamonds to bring it back sooner. How will we be earning all those Christmas cards we notice in the achievements section? The cards came from doing the HOSs, just like you are now receiving the candy...more HOSs=more cards. How will we be getting our greedy little hands on all those pet eggs that we see tempting us occasionally on the wheel? Not sure you will be able to get last year's pets....only the release of the new info will tell us what is required this year. After last year's event, I kept several eggs (eggs were doled out as a reward for finishing the daily quest). I also kept about 200 of each card so people could actually "activate" the lil darlin's --- then I just sold it all in April because no one was asking anymore. After I sold it all, Trina's quests came about and I could have disenchanted for a ton of shards....oh well, live and learn.

Thanks for sharing your hard-earned experience with the newcomers! Christmas is just around the corner ...



Not sure I am wise or exalted.....but here are some of your answers from a person who has been playing little over a year now.

Thank you so much! This is all exciting info. I have a yeti egg I won months ago, just sitting there waiting for some cards to bring it to life ...

Hopefully the cards (or whatever the Devs come up with) will connect to the Yeti so you can craft it!

I have loved all the Christmas pets with no exceptions. They cost little to craft, were economic to feed and brought back a lot of gold. Definitely my favorites among all the pets. Neither the Spring nor the Fall pets have been half as good.
I have all of them, so I hope they give us a couple of new ones to craft.
