Yet again, what was once my favorite event (72-hour challenge) is getting even harder. Based on a YouTube video, I can see that it will take a whopping 35,000 tokens to flip all of the cards! Previously, the hardest option would take about 24,000 coins to complete. That's an increase of nearly 50%!
If the amount of coins I earned didn't progressively decrease, it might be attainable, but now there's no chance of me getting the monster, even with 3.6 billion gold and the food guardian enabled. Here's what I've experienced from collecting black lotus root with the food guardian enabled (I'm level 108, btw):
- First food collection: ~1500 coins
- Second food collection: ~750 coins
- Third food collection: ~500 coins
- Currently collecting (on my 9th card): ~300 coins
This rate will continue to drop as the card cost continues to increase. At this rate I'll be lucky if I am able to flip even 5 more cards.
