I think Shock is mathematically impossible for me to get at this point unless I spend gems to speed things up. At 8 hours per attack for the shadow creatures, I'll likely only be doing that twice a day with each character because I like to sleep. That would give me 54 chances over 9 days unless I'm mistaken, and I need 50 for Shock. And I'll only be doing it that often assuming I have the items I need and all three characters. Considering I still don't have enough items to have done anything today and probably won't have Barrel until tomorrow (I'm not checking this game every ten minutes), I'm already behind. I don't think I'm going to bother.

What’s better than one tapper? It’s two tappers at the same time of course!

These tappers seems like a real mess! The spider tapper for the one character looks really easy, probably to easy. Then you have the other two tappers that have really weird times. Many of the items collectors for 3 in Kingdom are only 60 seconds which is great but the 3 jobs you make with them are 2 to 4 hours. Then the 6 in the Kingdom jobs are 2-4 hours and the 3 final jobs are 8 hours.

Also, is anyone else confused about what jobs you should send your characters out for in these tappers? There’s so much overlap that I’m not really sure what to send them on yet.
Holy sh!t. This event is making my brain hurt, and we're not even a full day into it. Three tappers at once? I can't be bothered checking in every ten minutes, and I still don't have the round faced kid yet.

    I've given up on attractions, especially ones we need to compete for. Just not worth my time.

    Didn't realize adult males used the word "welp"?

    My goals for this event, since I already decided 500 gems for Lock was too expensive (I'm not really a big NBC fan).

    Spiders:
    • Barrel. (complete)
    • I wouldn't hate getting an Epic blueprint if it happens.
    Trees:
    • I'd love to get the Sapphire chest, but I'm probably just getting the two blueprint sets, realistically, since I'm not buying Lock. If it gets close to the end, I might compare the cost of gemming with the 100 gems for the Sapphire chest.
    • I'd love to be top 10 here to pick up some elixir, but I'm outside that right now.
    Shadows:
    • Realistically, probably the decorations chest is as far as I'll go, but the concession chests would be great. Just don't see myself getting there.
    • I would love an attraction chest, but I just don't think that's realistic either.

    If you didn’t buy Lock, which I assume is the case than it’s gonna be tough for you to get Shock without spending gems. That said, if your willing to spend a few gems and your able to collect enough items you could always speed up Ham and Buzz right before bed. One or two nights of doing that should would really increase your chance of hitting 50.

    EDIT: Got Forest Friends and Shadow Monsters mixed up and thought speeding up costs were considerable cheaper. On a positive note, you can buy items needed for Shadow Monsters fairly cheep from Merlin. Still, if you can get 2 collects in a day, spend a little elixir and willing to spend few gems (50-100) Shock should be doable for you.

    This might sound strange, but sadly my leader board for Shadow Monsters was nowhere near as bad s some of yours. Was hoping to already be out of the running for first, but currently lead with 10, one player at 9 one at 8 and 3 at 7. I hope they get there act together and take the lead soon, because if they don’t my competitive nature will kick. :rotfl:

    Also, why must they always overlap jobs for characters? Right now you have to choose competing in the tappers or leveling up characters. I understand why they do that ($$$) but it’s really annoyin.

    My Leaderboard for Shadow Masters is pretty good it is the Forest Fiends that is crazy. I have gotten all three free NBC chests and did not get oogie so not much else for me in this one. Not sure I want to spend 500 gems on,is it, Lock, gotten Barrel ( round face guy lol), none of these are my favorite characters.

    I was considering buying Lock, but unless I know I'm going to be able to get all the characters, I really don't care about him. Shock seems like such a longshot to me at this point that I'm not risking it. I think I'm okay with it. I'll do the other two challenges so I can get the sapphire chest, but I think that will be it for me.

    I should be able to get Shock with some potion spending. I am pretty well set up with potion since I had a bunch of garbage to unload on Merlin in the last bonus time. If I wanted to be obsessive, I could get her without potions, but I like to enjoy my life. :) I took a gamble and bought a sapphire chest and got Syndrome, so I am pretty happy. I have one shot left at the bride with the last event chest. I don't have high hopes for that one and it is less disappointing to not get anything good if the chest only cost you time. Now the slow grind to build my gems back up since I blew 600 with the chest and Lock purchases.

    Ugh, this entire event is way more complicated than it needs to be. I meant Forest Fiends not Shadow Masters. Luckily when I woke up some players got there acts together and passed now so now I don’t need to worry about trying for first.:rotfl:I’m trying to figure out how some of the other score boards can be as high as they are? Obviously we can buy items to speed things up, which I have, but the game has a limited number of trees in the kingdom and they appear to be on a timer we can’t speed up. I’ve run into it 3 or 4 times and had to wait 1+ hours before I could do anything.

    As far as Nightmare Before Christmas goes, I’ve never watched it so I don’t really care about the characters either. Only reason I bough Lock is that I had only 1300 gems And figured he would help to get Shock. I don’t care about her either, but don’t think I’ve ever not gotten the final character reward for an event/TC.

    There is a way to speed things up, the option is only available when all 3 characters are done with their tasks. So in other words, one can gem the three tasks, gem the timer, gem tasks, gem timer.....

    The 8 hour tasks are stupid. I wake up at 6 and am in bed by 930. I am not collect 2x a day for it. What a crock. This event is the most hateful one ive seen from gameloft.

    it’s definitely bad, but I don’t think anything will be as bad as the “special character money grab” Grumpy event. But at least I have Grumpy who’s helping me, oh wait, he’s sitting at home right now.

    I think I got Grumps from a free chest at some point. I was able to level him to like level 8/9 with all the previous tokens I had amassed. I think what makes this event so punitive is the fact that the lanterns aren't a sure thing with trimming of the spook trees. It's an EPIC drop. So you are left with spending elixir or gems to even be able to send the shadow group out to get your 7/8 shadows a day to make it.

    Don’t get me wrong, this is an awful event And feels like a money grab. The 8 hour tasks suck and makes it really hard to get 9 done in a day so I‘LL probably just get 6 most days. Luckily you can buy lanterns and Lotus Candles from Merlin. That‘s what I’ve been doing since I’ve got the elixir. I’m actually buying most of my Lotus flowers and sending any character that collect lotus out for Lock/Barrel tokens if they can instead.

    I find the timer for tree respawning incredibly annoying. @luther10 Correctly started that you can if all 3 characters are down with there tasks, but it makes Locks 2 hour worthless. Also, I refuse to spend gems to speed up the 2 4 hour tasks.

    Not sure if you were playing then but I still feel like the Grumpy event was the worse . Can’t remember everything about it, but think we had to buy chests, with gems, just for the chance of getting his tokens and could cost over 1K in gems for most to completely. People were doing it though, because they said he was a special character who would help collect for future events. Think that only lasted an event or two, at most.

    Yes. Day 1 player here. Grumpy lived up to his name and game loft had to tread very carefully because even paying players were really upset with him. I think most people had at least resigned themselves to not getting him, but this event, it seems like more people were taken unaware. GL is certainly going to deplete a lot of folks stoks of gems and elixir from their coffers.

    I thought you were. If it weren’t for the 2 device buying crates technique I don’t think I woulda gotten Grumpy. I miss the pre pre-determined crate reward days. :rotfl:

    Your right about them wanting to deplete our gems/elixir. That‘s a problem with most game, especially ones that have been around for a few years. They’re trying to balance making as much money as possible, push things as far as they can, but not scare away the people who spend money. They don’t care and won’t mind if they loose the long time players who aren’t spending money on the game.

    As far as this event goes I should end up with her, currently at 17/50, but they’re trying my patience. I think I’ve probably managed it well enough that it’s only gonna cost me elixir. That said, I’ll spend a few pre-bedtime gems near the end of it if necessary.

    I got the Mayor in a chest, which was a nice surprise. Beyond that, I’ve hit the first milestone in all 3 challenges and will finish spiders to get the character but am putting zero effort into the rest. Don’t have the time to put toward characters that will likely have little future use and they aren’t my favorites anyhow. Not being negative, just not putting effort into this one.
