I had the same debate with myself. Only 10 more 10-part DQs to achieve and this would definitely deplete my inventory. But I haven't missed a CC so onward I will go.
I have to say that this 3rd avatar is awful looking. Having come out before Halloween it first reminded me of the bride of Chuckie in a raincoat...which then reminded me of the movie Alice, Sweet Alice
I only play the DQs when their easy ones to fill. I figure once the game is over, and assuming we're still able to play, I'll get around to the achievements for the DQs and Trina. But having said that, here's my opinion. If you've played all the Challenges to date and have all the avatars, I think you should complete this one. You can always play the rounds to get more airship items and, as Tracy said, rely on friends. If you've already missed some of the Challenges and don't have all the avatars to date, then I wouldn't worry about completing this one.
She reminded me of a female Georgie in Stephen King’s book, It.
That is why I went back and am finally getting my Christmas angel!
Just my 2¢ worth -- To date, I have completed all of the CCs. As a result, I have unlocked every avatar that is currently available for unlocking. For me, to have one sitting there locked would be an annoyance. Soooooo, while I don't care for any of the avatars in this CC, I completed it.
Regarding the airship sendings....I waited until Trina was asking for her airship to be sent that gives 300 wheels....sent off any that gave less than 300 and any that gave more than 350 (to save on packed items). That way, I was fulfilling 2 requirements with the sending of the airship (which made it far less painful).
Regarding the lack of airship items....Initially, I was concerned about running out of them as I pursued the DQs. I used the events to help build up stock by visiting as many of my friends' rooms as possible. Once you finish the DQs, there will be Trina's quests asking for more airships to be sent. I have concluded that it isn't the lack of airship items that will cause me difficulty achieving the Key Master and Ace Assistant.....but it will be the lack of postcards.
For the airship items, you can always set aside time to just do HOSs to build stock....you can earn more by spending more time playing the rooms. However, there isn't a blasted thing you can do to get more of the postcards.....each of us is relegated to 15 maximum every day.....period.
But regarding whether to complete a CC or not......if you have done all prior to the current one, then you'd probably feel badly by missing the completion of it. However, if you have already missed some....this CC was heavy on ghost traps and airship sending. Those can be precious items better used in other ways.
I'm sure you are right but because I started even looking at Trina very very late in the game, I am a long way off getting her two achievements ie 650 keys held, 5000 needed. I started the DQs from early on of course and so - whilst still, a ways off, they are within sight, particularly the 3 and 5 task ones. I have always gifted to the max so combined with not dealing with Trina for ages, I have a good stock of postcards, about 6000 and she doesn't always ask for them, maybe once in 5???? Whereas the DQs nearly always ask for at least 1 loaded airship, sometimes 2. I can maybe do 40 HOS on an average day. Just not enough time to do more. So, my strategy is to concentrate on the DQs for now, tying in Trina when I can and doing this, it is ALWAYS the airship items that hold me back. Doing the event HOSs I am currently holding between 200 and 250 per item and I just couldn't bear to give them to the cc for the avatar. I have most of them, I've only missed one before I think, but it wasn't spoiling my perfect score not to get this one. I can see that would have been annoying.
That’s exactly what I thought especially w/ the new Stephen King IT 2 remake in theaters currently for Halloween I’m sure that’s where the devs got that idea!
Lots of good advice here from experienced players. Here's my method, for what it's worth.
I pretty much abstained from DQ's for a long long long time. I'd do one every few months or so. At lower levels I was more interested in coins & diamonds than anything else (I started playing before the puzzles were introduced). Anyway, by rarely playing the DQ's I let the stamps build & build & build. Occasionally I'd go in & sell off some for coin or shards to keep them in balance, but otherwise I didn't use them.
At the same time, I really didn't do many Trina quests either. Did those I had to do, and some that didn't require airships. I did those required for challenges or needed keys of course.
At about level 80-ish I started doing DQ's again. Didn't do 'em everyday, but maybe 1 every week or two, or occasionally a couple a week.
Bottom line: I'm sitting on many thousands of stamps! I'm not worried about using them, giving them away (even brown ones), or running out. I'm slowly progressing toward the current end of the game, but not in any hurry. Lately I'm working on winning items at the dice table.
Not sure my approach is good for everyone, but I guarantee if you just play your game & ignore the DQ's & Trina your stamps will increase on their own. The DQ's will always be there to do later. You'll also have plenty of amulets to help you get through them quickly. Why be in such a hurry? You'll burn out on the game, or be like so many... just waiting for the next installment.
Good luck to you, whichever method you choose.

Trina will not request stamps from you (Postcards are another story, though!)......Some of the DQs will ask you to craft X amount of items, but if you craft Simple Pet Food, there's no stamps requested for that portion of the DQ either. So, my personal opinion is that avoiding/ignoring DQs and Trina will not significantly impact your stamp inventory.
Also, Stamps cannot be disenchanted for shards .... you can only sell them.
It is from HOSs that you get the abundance of stamps....for those who are playing the event rooms over and over and over and over.....they are amassing a great many coins, BUT they are also getting tons of stamps, pet food and airship items.
Oops, I said stamps when I meant "airship items". Oh well... you are absolutely correct in your assessment though. Thanks for replying.
I have a good stock of postcards, about 6000 and she doesn't always ask for them, maybe once in 5????
Regarding the postcards.....I started documenting for what she asked on my 99th Trina Quest, so I don't have complete records. AND, on my 99th quest from her, she was still asking for only 6 postcards per time. In fact, she did not ask for 20 postcards until my 504th quest from her. (It gradually increased from 6 to 7 to 14 to 16 and finally to 20.)
I recently completed my 1700th Trina quest......That means I have records of how many postcards have been requested for 1601 quests......that total is 10,715.
I have 1300 more quests to reach the 3000 needed for Ace Assistant.....she requests postcards in my game 38% of the time (although from quest #1500 to 1700, it was 43% of the time)......So...... 1300 quests.....38% of the time asking for postcards = 494 quests .... 20 postcards each request = 9880 MORE postcards I can expect to give her to meet the Ace Assistant achievement.
2000 more quests to get from Ace Assistant to Key Master ..... 2000 x 38% = 760 quests..... 20 postcards each request = 15,200 ADDITIONAL postcards to meet the Key Master achievement.
That's an expected 10,715 + 9880 + 15,200 postcards needed for both achievements (bearing in mind there are no numbers for the first 99 of her quests) for a total of 35,795 postcards needed by time I complete the 2 achievements.........I hate to burst your bubble, but 6000 is a drop in the bucket by comparison......a good start.....but a mere drop in the bucket.
Also..... I have 3300 quests remaining. ...... 9880 + 15,200 expected postcards more to be required = 25,080 postcards. ....... I can only get 15 maximum a day...... that's a total of 1672 days before I can possibly earn the number of postcards expected to be requested/required..... 1672 divided by 365 days in a year (and that's if I manage to actually be able to gift 15 people every single of those days) = 4.58 YEARS FROM TODAY before I will complete both Ace Assistant and Key Master achievements ..... That's 4 years and 7 months from today or approximately the first of July 2024.
