If you cut and paste the address above, it will take you to the ATTENTION DEVS thread.

That thread was started 1/20/16 and has grown to 43 pages.

This thread was started 12/15/15 and has a whopping 2 pages.

Makes you wonder what the mood is at MC.

Rahia,

I only played HOSs in the Town.

I did not pay any attention to the Inventory Items that dropped so I can't compare them to my inventory. In general, I don't have massive amounts of inventory and the games being played are all at lower levels.

I don't think there are enough games in a "mini round" to constitute a large enough sample.

I had 3 columns. Games, Inventory and Coins/Shards. I made a hash mark in Games for each HOS I played and then a has mark whether it was an Inventory Item or Coins/Shards receoved.

That should be Coins/Shards v. Inventory.

Sorry and Thanks

I just finished doing 100 HOSs. I kept track of the rewards and have the following results.

Coins 43/100 or 43%

Inventory 57/100 or 57%

That's considerably better than the 1 in 3 many of us had previously estimated.

Run your own test and list your results. Remember to clear out any open quests since rewards from quests are dictated by the Find Path and will skew the results.

I'm not promoting this as an argument for or against the new update. I just thought it would be good to actually have some real numbers to argue with either way.

Please, let's keep it neutral and report the facts only.

Thanks

Any activity that can get a post removed from the public forum also applies to PMs. If it was really that bad, you might want to consider reporting it to a Mod, as others have mentioned.

BEFORE: Went to an HOS and had a 1/x chance of getting the item you needed, where x is the number of items the HOS could possibly drop

AFTER: 100% certainty; you get the item you need ... I like this!

WHERE USEFUL: For gifting. Obtain the object you need; if it is one of the "rare" items, gift it and get it again, gift it and get it again, etc.


The game has always given you the item a Character Quest requires.

For example, if you were trying to get the Polestar for the Harp in Blossoms and you went to the Belfry HOS you might get the Styx Charm to use in the Gnome Road Sign instead if another open Character Quest required something from there.

If you had no open Character Quests you had a 1/x chance of getting any item 100% of the time. Now you have a 1/x chance of getting any item only @30% of the time.

That's a huge reduction in Inventory received and definitely requires one or another of the workarounds you suggested. Thank God the Side Quests function like the Character Quests or we'd all be ripping our hair out.

A fellow MCer PMd me suggesting I not feed the pets while I was trying to obtain them. I tried that and while I can't definitively say that's the reason, I did finally get the final pet on the third try.

I got the first two pets the first and second time I opened the Ghostly Chest once the pets were available. The third and fourth time I got Pet Food. It is a little discouraging and I hope this does not continue.

I've seen several suggestions for the name of the new chests.

Highlight below to reveal my suggestion:


Sapphire

Thanks a bunch for your response.

Given the nature of the changes with this update, I feared that it would take forever to get the pets. Good to hear that's not the case.

Sea Serpent:
Test Location: Dark Portal Room of the Dark Tower, Castle Vicinity
Chest: Blue/Platinum

Woolly Paws: Licks Lips (I think, I know the tongue was out both times when I clicked him)
Test Location: Dark Portal Room of the Dark Tower, Underground Grotto
Chest: Blue/Platinum

I don't know what to call the chests so I'm going with Platinum but they really look blue to me. Also this may or may not work for you. It is just what worked for me. I do believe in more than one tell and sometimes it switches.


I infer from this post that you have acquired all the new pets. I assume you received them from the Ghostly Chest by acquiring the appropriate amount of keys.

In the post just ahead of this I had a question about how the pets were dispensed. Can you enlighten us on your experience?

I'm a tiny bit confused. The first item from the Ghostly Chest is the Portal Activator. (Already received)

Once you get this, there's nothing you can do with it because that's part of the next update, right?

Next, you can get the Rainbow Dragon. (No questions about this)

Third, you can earn/win the last three pets and Exclusive Food.

My question re: the other pets, is this. Since they are proceeds from a Zoom Zone do they come out randomly? Is it possible that you could acquire 10 Wooly Paws before you get either of the other pets, or does the ZZ dispense them evenly, one after the other until you have all 3 pets and then only dispense Exclusive Food from then on?

I am only at level 35 and maybe that is why???


Are you on a PC or some other platform. My experience is that there was no option; update or no play.

I think that's the problem. Just a few benefit.

I believe you are out of luck on cornucopias. They are only given as a reward for gifting and only during the event itself. If you gift now you will only get a post card. Sorry
