Then I got Something New again and decided it wasn't worth giving up over a hundred airship items for a rusty chest for the second time.


I love Something New. It's quick. All the 10 part DQ's require airships. Most take longer so I do as many as I get if I have enough time to complete them.

Also, ironically, I find the rusty chests have better rewards than the gold and silver ones. Don't know why that is. But when it comes to DQ's in particular - Rusty chests are good.

Now... with pets that's a different story. Gold chests from pets beats all the rest.

I don't care about the color of the chests or what's in them. All I care about is how quickly or easily I can do the DQ.

If I've got to send 2 airships, I'll take Something New or What's Going On with their rusty chests over Gnome Spy with its gold chest in a heartbeat.

I've never gotten Special Interest, 3 days, Helping Hand, Inspiration, Something New, and What's Going On.

I have opened all areas needed for Something New and Special Interest months ago but not for the others. Several of the needed HOS for Something New and Special Interest are not maxed out. I wonder if they don't trigger until a later level and what that level is.

3 Days and What's Going On will be triggered to start in rotation after you reach level 35 and open the HOS's Expedition Camp and the Potion Shop each in Cloud City.

Helping Hand needs Cloud City Customs ZZ opened in Level 30 for it to trigger.

Don't know why you haven't seen the others. I'm sure you will at some point.

Playing dice against Lord Chamberlain

Because of how my DQ's have worked out, I only had 2 rolls available in game #1.

So far:

D - D - L - D - L Daphne didn't have a ghost of a chance.
W - W - W Jack Frost freezes the Lord Chamberlain



Game #2

L - L - D - W Not impressed with Daphne. Time for a new avatar.
L - W - L Jack Frost sent to the deep freeze

So what's the next achievement you're going for?

I think I've been playing too much the past couple of days. Just fed my pet, opened the chest, and wondered what was wrong with my game because the airship hadn't showed up when the pet brought back the chest.

Off the top of my head cause I don't have them written down and the d/l glitch takes too long to check...

The remaining achievements in both games are the normal long term ones; DQ's, Magic Miser, AA & KM, CC & FF. Both games also need Master Merchant, Food Frenzy, and Amulet Archduke.


Game 2 also needs Market Master, Lucky One, Dice with Dragon, and Zoomer.


You have been doing a lot since the update. Bet you're glad that your even able to do something. Makes me happy to see you're able to play again .

Trying to make up for lost time. And who knows what will happen with the next update? I could be back in the Three Day/Helping Hand Loop.

Thanks. It's been hectic and I've used a lot of resources, but eventually the crummy DQ's will show up again and I can catch my breath and restock.

I'm so glad I didn't "rage quit" last month and continued to do my 100 HOS per day per game. What really helped me through the tedium was listening to the BBC channel Radio 4 Extra. Can't listen when I'm working on DQ's and need to concentrate.

Game #2 just spent 11 diamonds calling back the airship, and I still wound up packing and sending a 291 wheel ship.

Then I did the 2nd section of part 1 of Secret Delivery and opened up the Stone Chaps. The 1st item I received was the Stamp of Pain , followed by the Symbol of the Abyss, the abyss presumably being where my diamonds went to.
