Hoarding Prospectors

Prev1
Nope, just dropping them on neighbors as I get 'em. Is there any reason to hoard them?

    well once act 3 starts there will be 4 crafting materials avaialble. So when you send then out they will get all 4 and not just hats and picks

    I've been dumping on my neighbors :mrgreen: even bought a few extra, well..just because it's fun and to make up for being a lousy neighbor for the past few months. Unfortunately about half of them apparently haven't started playing or there's a glitch, because I can't drop on them. ...and then there's the invisible ones, like Newcastlenia :(

    This event is a lot like last years Halloween when we dropped the purple nightmares. If memory serves me, there were plenty by Act 3. But these prospectors are a lot harder to see/find.

    true but if you can easily complete everything in the first 2 acts without using them it will give you a huge jump on act 3 like it did with the casino game tokens last time

    Good to know.

    In act 3 will we be able to craft additional items (deco,buildings) like past events or will it be this railyard type setup that just allows us to progress through the prize track now?

    I have no idea.
    what i do know is that the very few prospectors i did send out came back with picks and hats and there were 2 other categories there that we are not collecting yet. guns and coins.
    i have no idea if there is actually crafting or if it will be the same as the store for the daily things and some will then require these other materials as well.

    Hoarding is great and all but with the event just starting out I'd rather have people share Prospects around. This'll help with having a swift start for all so skins/characters/buildings which pay out event currency will be reached earlier.

    I'll start hoarding once there's a pulse on the events' pace and I know people can keep up.

    true but for someone like me that will have very little time to play during act 3 because i will be away i would like to do what i can do make act 3 go much easier.

    Maxx, in that case I think I would hoard, too, or you may miss out on some good prizes. Send me a request if you want and I'll drop some your way. I'll make a spot, but right now I'm not sure how many 'invisible' neighbors I have. I wish they'd get that fixed already.

    Aww I miss seeing your name in my town! I'm hoarding til I get 100 then everyone gets 1 each :) because of my current cloak of invisibility this is the only fair way I can think of to share with my neighbours. Am usually a receive an reciprocate kind of girl, but for now that's on hold!

    finally a mention of the mysterious coin. I already have one and some of my friends are up to the teens with them. If that's for act three how are we getting them now?

    Don't ask me as i am just going by what i see and how previous events have worked.

    Totally understandable.

    Looking at the amount of Prospectors we're given so far Act 3 should be a breeze.

    Thanks for bringing it up, same thing here. Last event, I got Gabbo this way. First I was so bummed I wasn't getting act 3 stuff since I was traveling without access, then I saw a forum thread on hoarding. I put in a bunch of time on acts 1&2, and bam! got him on the first day act 3 dropped, right before I left. Happy-happy. I really wanted Gabbo.

    Hopefully it's the same this time.

    I have been dropping but most of my neighbors haven't updated, I usually try to spread the love eveenly to all my neighbors and hording would probably make that easier. But I think I may just drop as I get them.

    I've been hoarding them, but only because I'm missing from my neighbors list. So what's the point in using them, they don't even know I dropped by. I tested on my boyfriend's old account, didn't see them any left except from his neighbors

    Doesnt really matter .... when they collect them you also get bonus items.

    for those looking to be good neighbors .... help out those neighbors in your list who have lower event numbers.

    from past events i have not hoarded until the last couple of days of an act. this will help you get items quicker but you could also get all items without hoarding.
