Hope this guide can make events more easier to accomplish and answer some FAQ . this guide cover progressive , Maze and 72 hour challenge Events
Pools ! what is it ?
Lets take an example with pvp
- The max number of attacks you can have at any time is 3 . this equal pool capacity so pvp pool is 3
- If you did 3 pvp attacks , you will have to wait 2 hours before you can do another attack .. the spwan time for pvp is 2 hours .and it will take 6 hours to fill the pool to max
- what will happen if i waited more than 6 hours ?
Nothing . the timer will be stopped and no more pvp attacks will be added to your game till you at least do 1 attack .
1- Progressive Islands
Monsters and rewards are placed in linear order so you canot pick your reward , you have to clear it Progressively and hence comes the name from .
You have to do certain actions like collecting gold. feeding monsters , fighting ,breed or hatch to earn points , and every items has its own pools capacity and spawn timers so
- Gold pool capacity is 6 and spawn time is 1h20m ---(Get full in 8 hours)
- Feeding pool capacity is 4 and spawn time is 2 h ---( Get full in 8 hours)
- breeding pool capacity is 1 and spawn time is 8 h ---( Get full in 8 hours)
- hatching Pool capacity is 1 and spawn time is 8 h ---( Get full in 8 hours)
So If event for example started at 1 Pm and first node require 22 gold.12 feed and 3 breed like the photo above how the event will go
1 Pm : i will collect gold and feed and breed ---
**See tips below** -- so i will get 6 gold items and 4 feed and 1 breed
2 pm : if i repeated all the above action i will not get anything as all the pools are empty
2:20 pm : there is new 1 item in gold pool so if i collect gold i can get 1 more gold items but feeding pool is still empty
3 pm : there is a new item in feed pool so if i feed i can get 1 more feeding item
3:40 : new 1 gold items is add to gold and so on
**Confused !! how should i play this event ?
No need to worry , this event is actually the least tiresome between the 3 events
If you noticed all the pools are full after 8 hours . so all you need is to time your action
In the above example .. when the event start go and collect gold . feed and breed till you have 6,4,1 items - Respectively - after that you can play the game your style but after 8 hours is passed repeat the above cycle so your items are 12,8,2 - Respectively - and so on ... This is 8 hours events so even lazy or busy players can do it by timing the logging every 8 hours
Sometimes we have it , So what does it mean ?
it mean that every thing take 50% less time so during the boost
- Collect Gold pool capacity is 6 and spawn time is 40m ---(Get full in 4 hours)
- Feeding pool capacity is 4 and spawn time is 1 h ---( Get full in 4 hours)
- breeding pool capacity is 1 and spawn time is 4 h ---( Get full in 4 hours)
- hatching Pool capacity is 1 and spawn time is 4 h ---( Get full in 4 hours)
Notice that the pool capacity is fixed , so during the boost it is 4 hours events not 8 hours one
Tips and Tricks
- The items drop is chance based . this mean 2 things
1- all players are equal in those type of events --- of course if no gems spent --- so every one will get 6 gold items every 8 hours regardless the player level
2- the items drop
DOESN'T depend on the amount of gold collected or amount of food feeded or the length or quality of the breed
For gold items keep collecting every time you log to your game . or when the gold icon appear on habitat easy pesy
For feeding . to maximize the use of your food especially if you have nothing to feed then every 8 hours hatch some common - Firesaur for example 15 sec hatch - and feed it to level 10 .. if still not get your 4 items , sell and repeate
If you already have something to feed , then it is perfect as no food is wasted here
For Breeding and hatch . again it is a a chance drop item so short combo are preferred ,, some combo that works for some players are pandaken one -- fire and nature common --- took 30 sec , or use treezard + thundenix 30 sec too
3- if you got like 5 gold and 3 feed though you waited 8 hours , restarting the game and re collect and feed usually fix this . same for breed and hatch of course
4-when you finish a node and start new one , the pools are full
so you may get 6 gold.4 food.1 breed items and finish node with gems . then instantly again collect 6,4,1 items . Only fight timer is not reset with new nodes
5- Though it is very old issue but i still see some players mention it ,it is about pool timer reset . Back in old days logging to game will cause that so we were forced not to touch our game for 8 hours , 1 login by mistake and you lose items but now there is no reset . log as much as you can
6- progressive island are impossible to finish without spending gems . So either progress totaly with 0 gems .. or decide you target and spend a little to get it or go all wild and finish it all if you like . It is up to you and usually in each event topic we have gem chart which help decide what to get and how much to Spend so make sure to check those
Last . All feedback , suggestions and correction are welcomed so if you have any just comment so i can edit or add it
