Drop rate for holiday wands

[Post New]by TiramaSue on Dec 15, 17 6:30 PM
The following items share the same drop slot:

1 Candy Cane
2 Christmas Bell
3 Christmas Lights
4 Christmas Star
5 Christmas Wreath
6 Festive Garland
7 Fir Cone
8 Holiday Wand
9 Santa Hat
10 Tree Trimming

So, over the course of the event, you can expect to receive 1 holiday wand for every 10 hidden object scenes you play.

Unless you can play a prodigious amount of scenes, you are going to need to make trades with the children or spend some diamonds to get the wands you need.

Maybe there will be a sale on holiday wands, same as there was for the ghost traps (1 diamond for 1 holiday wand). Maybe not.

Hmmm.....Perhaps that's why BF gave us 10 free pink boxes and 10 wands early on.

That means, many of us will be suffering RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) of the fingers over Christmas.

That is good information to have. Does the pink gift box drop one in ten also? I have quite a few right now but am scared to give them away and end up with a low total and hurt my chances of getting more.

Thank you for always having the info we need. It really helps in planning a strategy.

No, the pink boxes drop approximately 1 in every 38 HOS. How many you have does not effect how many you get.

I tracked my drop rate for almost the entire year, started with zero boxes. It fluctuated from day to day, but every time I took an average, it was in the 1 to 38 ball park.

Unfortunately or fortunately the closer you get to completing some of the task....like snow globes and the new Trees, Snowmen, & Socks.....Since I have completed them and it wasn't easy.....wands are showing up a lot.!!!.....so I would say if you don't need they show up.....if you do it's a mixed batch....

That's about the drop rate I'm getting. Just did 280 HOS and got 24 wands.

But every HOS drops ornaments. 7 ornaments = another wand if you trade with kids. That would be 1 wand every 7 HOS in addition to the extra wand for every 10 or an equivalent of approximately 5 wands for every 20 HOS (give or take).

Completing a Daily Quest often has wands in the chest. Usually I get between 2 or 3 (as many as 4) in a chest. Figuring an average of 2 wands in a chest for a DQ wanting 9 ornaments. That's a wand for every 4.5 ornaments/HOS.

That may sound confusing but it's not as bad as it seems depending on your point of view.

It is definitely worth doing the ornament DQ's. Especially if you get 2 or more wands from the chest.
