Any tips on best pieces to play for with the puzzles?

[Post New]by Pnbmc on Mar 17, 17 5:53 AM
Greetings all,

As someone else noticed a few days ago, with the latest update, you can only get one per item for all six puzzles. You can get one egg, period, but it will be the last item on the list. So, my question, any suggestions on the top 10 items to list for coins or shards?

Thx all. Really enjoy this forum. And, many thanks again to all my very generous friends - the "bears", Mano, Jan, dark moon, etc. ?

I'm not maxed out like you, so I'm asking for items for the "monster" ZZs I'm being sent to a lot by my CQs - Amber Tear, Lore Master, Rare Parchment, etc. Pretty much anything from any of the ZZs in the Dark Tower.

If I get those, I ask for things to craft profitable items, like Tree of Life, or Sign of Penance.

By the way, if you do manage to win an egg, you can still ask for a different egg from the other puzzles. So, say you win the Phoenix egg, you can still ask for the Panda.

Thx, desertdruid! I did not know you could ask for another egg once one was "out of play". Although, I have noticed that my luck is even worse since the update - I rarely get the diamonds plus one. Have yet to get all rewards in one puzzle. Oh well, continue storming, right? ?

just being sarcastic here..
picking the right hand.
I've put in items I need to complete and of course it's all at the end of the list. After spending five minutes to search, and play, I get nothing.

Just saying because I have gotten nothing since the new update
Good luck all .. there is a reason why they call it gambling.
yet I continue again to the next round...

Besides putting an egg into every puzzle, I don't think that there is any longer "best pieces". Simply because I was selling the eggs for the coins but now any item I get I am keeping to further game play. I am now putting in the higher items from the new update: Mirror Keeper, Daring Trio, Rat Catcher Outfit, etc. but with no intention of selling them. It is to each his own and what items they need/want the most.

I've noticed it's harder to win all the way through on the puzzles now. After the one free try, yesterday I was asked for 46 diamonds to continue!!! It's usually 4 or 6. Didn't continue that time.

Mrs23,hi I haven't started the new update yet (I'm holding out for a while) I wonder if the puzzles will let me have the items you mention.I think I might try for them when my cool down has finished as I don't need anything else at the moment,except for 25,000 shards

I could not be positive but I don't think so. I noticed as I progressed through the update so did the items that I was able to add. So I think that you have to have that particular HOS or ZZ open before you can obtain the items. I could be wrong .....

I'm seeing a lot of items I've never seen before available in the puzzles now. I think it might be stuff from levels I haven't gotten to yet. Another little glitch from an update that clearly wasn't thoroughly debugged.

I've been tracking my win rate. It is far below 50% - even on the first few tries e.g. For the diamonds. The time it takes to complete a puzzle is not worth the effort.

I can only hope the developers would read this and understand that in their puzzle update they made it too hard- in addition to the disappointment that we can't earn multiple eggs.

I've just decided to go for one item plus diamonds and then quit. Chances of getting the whole list are so remote that I'd rather settle early and actually win something.
