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.


OUCH !

I have spent a lot of diamonds since GMT last night too. Game 2 that never gets airships over 199 suddenly is starting to. Sent away 2 in a row last night (204 & 207) to get one low for Secret Delivery. Sent away 3 today that were too low for Rare Editions (153, 129, and 147) to get one over 180. Reopened the dice table for RE, HD, and GS. Spent diamonds on the first 7 parts of GS so I wouldn't have to run an amulet.

What an expensive day for us both

I just finished part 3 of Ancient Picture and started on part 4 and was in the middle of gifting. Then the internet connection suddenly failed and kicked me out of the game. After waiting 5 minutes to get back in (thanks to the d/l glitch) I had to do the second half of part 3 and the first half of part 4 all over again because none of it saved .

mdpetdoc if you happen to get two gifts from me this gifting session you'll know why .

What? a sale on 8 measly bags of pet food and no airship item sale? I'm very disappointed . I saw the sale bag and got excited to buy airship items. Then saw it was pet food of which I already have hundreds of each type. I'm bummed.

I didn't expect a sale on airship items when I saw the bag. I figured it was going to be a real cash sale on coins or diamonds. Figured if they wanted to see us airship items they would have done so when task #2 unlocked.


I don't know how many diamonds each food costs when it's not on sale, but it would only cost 40 diamonds to buy pet medallions to craft 8 bags of food. So I don't understand the reason for this sale, especially since the previous task was to craft 15 items. Most people have been crafting simple food, and 15 bags is enough to feed 3 pets.

I went into my old game I don't play that has a few pets but no pet food.

Simple Food = 15 diamonds per bag
Special Food = 30 diamonds per bag
Rare Food = 50 diamonds per bag
Unique Food = 80 diamonds per bag

For the quantities of pet food on sale...
At regular price (4 Brown, 2 red, 1 green, 1 blue) has a value of 250 diamonds. The offer is listing these quantities at half price.

February 14

Puzzle 2 completed

Pets fed (2 crystal boxes) (1 gold) (1silver)

Inspiration done
Something New (started but doubtful to complete)
Played puzzles and earned diamonds to bring back the airship and renew the dice table. Saw 4 airships wanting 327-336 steering wheels. Will let one come back on its own. But tomorrow is a busy day.

My airship study is done and the results probably won't surprise you. I have seen 29 airships since February 5th. Sent only 9. Two others were good but I couldn't use them. The item that I had the least and/or second least was in 23 of them. Only 4 were well balanced. The one I had the most of was in 13 and I could only use 3 of them. Not going to collect any more data. The road is long.

I really needed that easy day yesterday. I felt so relaxed.

Today, I'm back on the DQ treadmill, doing lots of HOS for Trina in the hope she will ask for wheels so I can complete the 10-part DQ's.

I'm thinking of tracking the number of wheels each airship rewards. Since January 1, I've seen a low of 198 and a high of 366. (I'm at level 82 and trying to stay there for all of 2018).

While I don't really want to see a lot of 300 plus airships now, when I'm done with the 10-part DQ's and just sending airships for Trina, all I'm going to want is 300 wheels.

I agree with you on Trina after Gnome quests are done. I did a few during WE. My game appears to be stuck on 300+ Airships (5). My Trina quest is partially done.
