Just Joining (late) The Party!   Welcome!

Well ... time for next set of questions. Thought I had an initial understanding, was doing OK. Just experience  new wrinkles.

Had been visiting friends' rooms & clicking on HOS. Got build-up of coins. Now, that seemed to stop. Did I happen to join & start during some specific event which has ended? What do I do to get more coins now - quickly?

Was playing HOS and had to 'craft' an item. Again, thought I understood this & proceeding OK. Now, I'm stuck. I have one Unique Amulet but need two. How do I seek & get amulet(s)?

Yep, it was the anniversary event to celebrate 5 years of MC. It ran for rather a long time, seasonal events are shorter (but have three HOS to play).

The standard answer for getting coins is: do the rounds i.e. play every HOS in the castle. Very effective but rather tedious. If you had a lot of stamps you could craft some items which sell for way more than they cost crafting. If you have won some eggs on the wheel or in the puzzles or been gifted some by friends you could sell them. (When asking friends make sure to state that you are going to sell them; "need coins" after your name does the trick. Some are able and happy to help you out but others would only help for crafting pets.) Same goes for craft items, a ancestor spirits, blessing pendant or moster of the dawn bring a nice sum and advanced players are often willing and able to help a newbie out.

Crafting: If you have to craft something for a task you get sent to item in the lab directly. There are all the ingredients listed. If you're missing a HOS or ZZ item you will be sent from there to the scene where you can get it. I think you mean unique stamp, not amulet. Amulets can't be crafted, you get them either as an achievement or you buy them during events and there is only one of each kind. The unique stamp (or any other stamp) drop from HOSs, occasionally from collecting morphing flowers, they come out of boxes in the private rooms, sending airships gives a stamp, so does Trina's wheel and the wheel of fortune, playing the puzzles might get you stamps. One or two unique stamps are also in one of the three chests you can open at the start of each game day. Friends may gift them to you when you put them on your wish list. The dame tends to get very miserly when you run out of things. Best to collect a minimum 20 of each, then build it up to 50 and for plain stamps a base of 100 is recommended.

Hi Pete,

As I mentioned before, I'm happy to gift you Panda, Squirrel, and Phoenix eggs (they are worth $5000 coins each) so you can sell them for the coins.  Thanks to a friend who is unloading their inventory, I've got a nice amount of eggs to gift out.  I have also asked a couple of friends to invite you and they will do the same (Randy and aa (Alan)).  Just put one of the eggs on your list, then rotate to the next egg, etc.  Also, not sure if you've read in AEGRAM's Guide yet about the Consortium, but they are a group of friends that are there specifically to gift items needed to new players!  There is a thread with the list of Consortium members but 'm not savvy on how to put the link here for you.  I'm sure someone can jump in here with that for you. There are members for each platform (PC, Android, iOS) because you can't cross platforms.  In other words, someone who plays on iPad can't gift someone playing on PC.

The link to the consortium thread is here.

Btw. when you copy a web address it will usually automatically be a link.

If you want your own text to link to something, copy the address to your clipboard, highlight the text you want to work as a link, click on the link button , then paste the address from your clipboard, confirm and you are done.

Thank you so much, my friend!  It sounds pretty easy when you put it here for me to visualize! heart_eyes Ada

I thought I would share with you my favorite pets.

1.  & 2. Baby Boy and Baby girl. These are Easter pets, and my most favorite of all. They only take simple food and bring back gold chests 80% of the time.

3. Cook. Also an Easter pet. I like him because he only takes 2 unique foods which is handy when a daily wants you to feed pets 12 times, and I only need 2 more after sending out Baby Boy and Baby Girl.

4. Winter Cat, a Christmas pet because he only uses 3 rare foods.

5. Sled Dog, a Christmas pet because he uses 4 special foods.

There are a variety of pets that use all the food, and also only take a few foods. It's nice to have at lease one pet that uses each of the 5 different foods. Still, Baby Boy and Baby Girl can't be beat because they use the cheapest food, and 80% of the time bring back gold chests.

I would like to add to not ignore the puzzles. A lot of people are put off by the smirky kid, but just ignore the smirks. On my Potlatch game, my computer over heats and takes forever for the game to load, so try to go on about half an hour before MC day ends, gift friends, spin wheel and Trina's wheel. I am trying to get rid of inventory. I need something to do until the new MC day begins so I can gift again. The back light on that computer is not good so it makes doing HOS had on my old eyes, so I have started doing puzzles to get items to craft to gift. For example, one day I obtained a hyena chain and steam tool to craft a Mechanical Heart worth 2,080 coins, the Sun Amber and Sign of Pennance to craft the Blessing Pendant worth 2,240, and the Druid's Hand, Luner Eclipse and Rage of the Forrest to craft the Ancesters Spirit worth 2,000. All of this in about half an hour. Of course, I don't always get three in that time but usually am able to craft 2. I make suggestions to my friend of what big items I have a lot of for them to wish for. I am really having more fun right now with this game than with my Howdah game where I am waiting for new content. There is a tell on the kid, but I am not going to tell you because if it gets out the devs will probably try to fix it. Just observe carefully. It is not 100%, closer to 65%. 

If you do the puzzles regularly, I hope you've seen my puzzle "hack."  I used to do them regularly, not so much any more.
