Might as well check my characters as well:

Pocahontas - 4
Percy - 4
Meeko - 22/40 berries, 20/20 hats

Lady - 8

Ian - 8
Dad - 8
Manicore - 8
Blaze - 7

Everyone else is done, so I'm taking a disinterest approach towards building up the characters. Really happy to have the new comfy costume, so that I can ever ever put it on her.

I would bore you with my characters. My highest level character is Woody at 8, although he's ready to go to 9 after the event.

Hey, there's a LiveStream this Friday about the Hercules event!

I’m surprised to see you got Percy, but I’m sure you had the gems to do it. Went back and forth over getting him or not. He woulda been useful, but I’ve got over 1200 gems now which will be useful in what appears to be an upcoming Hercules event.

Also interesting to see how we all level some characters differently. Blaze is your lowest level and his was the second Onward character I maxed a few weeks ago.

Yes, please don’t give us your progress list! :rotfl: Just kidding, we‘re all at different points in the game. How long have you been playing?

I know some will be excited about Hercules. I’m indifferent, but hopefully it doesn’t start for a few weeks. Would really like to finish leveling 2 or 3 more characters before it starts.

    Well, since you asked, today is day 28. I'm basically at the spot where you welcome Will Turner, Mike Wazowski, and Fairy Godmother (and Daisy unlocked for me also). I got Will and Daisy so far, Mike coming soon, and Fairy Godmother probably a couple of days away. The event characters I've picked up so far are Mrs. Potts, Aladdin, Iago, and Rey.

    Average level of my characters is about 4. After Woody, my next set of characters are all at level 6, so a ways to go from maxing any of them.

    When Aurora arrived this morning, I finally have the option (but not yet the willpower) to send characters home. I'll have to look into that, especially for some of my characters overnight who only have 60 min. missions.

    Right now, characters are characters, and free magic is free magic, but yeah, they're not my most favorite franchise either. I'm more excited for my first full-fledged event, though. :)

    @Renarr At this point I definitely wouldn’t send anyone home. Your much better off sending them off on longer jobs and get whatever magic you can. Sending players home is a feature that’s there for people who have been playing for a long time. I started playing the first few months the game came out and currently have 230 characters (181 home, 49 in the parks). Trying to manage that many players made the game unplayable, so the option to send home was a welcome and vital feature.

    Can understand the excitement of a new event, I miss those days, and hope you enjoy it. Just don’t get your hopes up to high. While they have definitely improved events for newer players lately you might not have everyone necessary for progress and you might not be able to get really far in it. Hope that’s not the case for you, but wanted to give you a heads up it’s a possibility.

    I was definitely only thinking about an overnight send home for my most limited characters; I think I get more magic for 8 hours of sleep at home than I do for a 60-minute task, and the extra 20-30 magic for those two or three characters will add up a little bit by the end of the month. Just got to remember to pull them back out.

    Hopes are definitely not too high on this one. On Pocahontas, I was thrilled to get the first milestone from all three parts, the second milestone from the crabs, and all four from the seeds. On the Striking Gold event, I got Aurora (who is pretty worthless except for 40 magic/hour right now), and that's not bad, either. I'm mostly just looking at the gradual progress as a good thing.

    welp, got Aurora's comfy outfit so ... yeah? Her dressing room activity is "try to not fall asleep" ... can you feel the excitement?

    BTW - was that "pre-event" the only way to get Pocahantas' comfy costume? sort of annoying if it was since I didn't get the dog so was nigh impossible to get the fabrics from that one tapper event

    I love the movie - I think it is one of Disney's more underrated ones, especially love the soundtrack - but I agree about not minding a bit more time before it starts - but based on the past, if the live stream was today, then I guess the new content gest loaded next Tuesday and event starts next Thursday (at least that is a bit over a week from today but still)

    Yeah getting that comfy outfit was really anti-climatic. Was wonder the same, but have a feeling we will got a chance with some type of mini event in the future. Like I said, I really don’t care if I get some dumb comfy costume, but the fact I ended up 2 or 3 short (they don’t show) is annoying. I wasn’t gonna buy the dog and that made it impossible to get top 3 for the fabric pieces.

    I love the movie - I think it is one of Disney's more underrated ones, especially love the soundtrack - but I agree about not minding a bit more time before it starts - but based on the past, if the live stream was today, then I guess the new content gest loaded next Tuesday and event starts next Thursday (at least that is a bit over a week from today but still)
    Can‘t remember if I saw the movie but don’t think so? Maybe I’ve seen bits and pieces of it if my nieces watch it? Next week would make sense and usually I wouldn’t mind that but wish/hope it’s a little longer. I like more than a week between a mini event and regular event. Since they currently have a week long mini event, easy but requires a lot of logging in, that would be less than a week.

    I think so. I didn't get the annoying dog either, so there was no way I could get the fabric from that 2nd contest.

    I'm actually kind of ready for a new event, and pleased with Herc, as it's a case of, "I'll play and have fun and get what I can but won't lose sleep if I don't get everything."

    I agree with all of this. They finally gave us a decent amount of time off from events, and I'm happy with how much I was able to get done in regards to leveling characters. I liked Hercules, but none of the characters are must-haves for me. I do hope they open land this time. I have a lot in storage now, and I'm going to have to add to that if they don't open up some space.

    At this point, these are the characters I'm still leveling:

    -Everyone from Onward (except Barley)
    -Lady
    -R2D2
    -Chip (got recently in chest)
    -The Mayor (also got in a chest, and have accepted it will probably take until next year to get him to 10, ugh)
    -Pocahontas and Meeko

    Herculade drink stand, Zeus lightning bolt for concessions and a mark of the gods trophy Was the only decoration they showed.

    Statue Garden attraction, Zeus temple attraction (has a pretty cool guest animation), training ground attraction. No premiums.

    Herc, Meg, Phil, Pegasus (1st premium), Pain, Panic (2nd premium) and Hades

    Float features baby Hercules & Pegasus

    Appears to have a boss battle to unlock Hades.

    There will now be a confirmation window for chests so no more wondering if you got your rewards in the event of a crash.

    2 floats being moved from legendary chest to the parade tent for purchase (I missed which ones, I think she said Cinderella & Snow White)

    Prince Charming added to the Snow White legendary

    Snow White characters/attractions will be the helpers for the event, which means they now drop trophies.

    Quest log will now be open permanently (not a fan of that)

    Tower Challenge will be returning at some point.

    No land this update, say something coming in future updates (my thought is they square off land area like they did to Tomorrowland)

    Don't get me wrong while I’m not excited about a new event I don’t have any problem with one starting and agree there was a decent amount of time between them. I just guess I would be more “excited“ if there was more than a week between the 7 day mini event that just ended and the new event that started. My issue being more with the worthless mini event, than I stupidly played to much of :rotfl: that rewarded a worthless (at this point) comfy costume. Hopefully Auroras comfy costume will be beneficial to the Herc event, but not gonna count on it.

    At this point I’d be shocked if they ever add land. :rotfl: I do like the idea of squaring off all the land though. That really made a big difference when they did it last time. Honestly, I kinda wish they would get rid of all the unopened landl 🤷‍♂️

    At least they finally came out and said the reason for it, along with things like dropping character audio, is that so much of the player base is using outdated devices that would otherwise struggle to run the app. Selfishly, I kinda wish they’d just tear the bandaid off and drop support for those devices but you can imagine the clutching of pearls (and lost revenue) from doing that.

    Or players could just off their damn flip phones and come out of the Stone Age. There is simply no excuse for outdated technology these days.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like chests have been harder to find lately. In the last few days, I’ve found some chests hidden in areas I’ve never seen used before.
