    Frappe Olé Strategy

    Time: 30th of May - 5th of June , 5 whole days, 2 half days.
    Where: Main Lands (Main, Meadow & Glade)
    FAQ: Frappe Ole Thank you Mods!
    SOS: SOS -Frappe Ole Thank you Joanc

    Crop: Pipe Bambo 7h
    - 5:36 hr with water applied; With Tree of Wisdom runes unlocked:5:03 hr with water and manure applied
    Drop: Wrench (Mainland, crop, animal & trees)

    Mill Items:
    Bent:
    28 crop + 3 drop
    Straight: 22 crop +2 drop.

    Preplanned Requirements - 10 levels: (Thanks to m_adele12,)
    Straight pipes = 202
    Bent pipes = 197
    Crops needed = 9960
    Wrenches needed = 995
    - Average of 5=199 - Average of 6=166



    ****
    Plot:
    10 levels with labyrinths we need to lay the pipes. We can pick up extra rewards along the ..pipeline. Therefore it is difficult to calculate the exact need of crop/drop as you can choose different paths. Once we've done all 10 levels, we can start all over again.

    Rewards:
    Each level gives you star coins. The CR and Items cost 53 Star coins, and much more interesting (for me) is the Crate O' Treasure Hunt for 5 Star Coins. That one can be bought mulitple times, and with a little bit of luck or a lot of starcoins give a lot of goodies.

    FAQ: Crate O' Treasure Hunt

    Completing all 10 levels once rewards 56 Star Coins
    (no limits on how many times you can do it)

    *****
    Levels:
    SvenBömwöllen from the German mod team made pictures of each level. Source: German FAQ

    Level 1 - [​IMG] - Level reward 2 x Star Coin - Straight:16, Bent:7
    Level 2 - [​IMG] - Level reward 1 x Star Coin - Straight:10, Bent:8
    Level 3 - [​IMG] - Level reward 6 x Star Coin - Straight:26, Bent:16
    Level 4 - [​IMG] - Level reward 6 x Star Coin - Straight:21, Bent:22
    Level 5 - [​IMG] - Level reward 5 x Star Coin - Straight:20, Bent:14
    Level 6 - [​IMG] - Level reward 6 x Star Coin - Straight:19, Bent:28
    Level 7 - [​IMG] - Level reward 8 x Star Coin - Straight:20, Bent:24
    Level 8 - [​IMG] - Level reward 5 x Star Coin - Straight:22, Bent:24
    Level 9 - [​IMG] - Level reward 8 x Star Coin - Straight:22, Bent:26
    Level 10 - [​IMG] - Level reward 9 x Star Coin - Straight:26, Bent:28

    I haven't gotten so far as to have a go at calculating a guesstimate of requirements yet, so please fellow farmers - feel free. I'll add them as soon as they are posted. I'll try to keep the most cost effective all rewards route in the first post.

    Disclaimer: I've ran out of excuses for messing up, but I still do it. So help out dear fellow farmers.


    Thanks:
    Julie

    Habalala for the Water & manure times, and for the EP calculation.
    Joanc for the SOS thread
    m_adele12 for the total requirements

    Indeed there is 8) Post updated, thanks Julie
    I saw crab pool, and I need a lot of crabs for a quest. That's what I have my eyes on. Wish I hadn't glued them open to make sure I don't lose sight of the goal. Kinda feel like blinking o_O

    Thanks Moraine for the kick off.

    7hr crop
    With Tree of Wisdom runes unlocked:
    5:36 hr with water applied
    5:03 hr with water and manure applied

    rewards (2x2 field)
    Pipe Bamboo 7hr = 92 EP
    Cranberry 3:30 hr *2 = 40 EP
    Laurel 3:30 hr *2 = 52 EP

    Even when you do not participate in the event itself, EP wise it is worth growing the event crop nevertheless.

    Do not try to straight out the bent pipes, nor try to bent the straight ones!

    Fingers crossed BP doesn't need a plumber to fix things again.

    Good luck everyone!

    thanks for open the thread.
    Will try to see if I could do more than one times. But first, the drop of wrench need to be good.

    Also like to remind players:
    The event start on 16:00 CET because there is a maintenance held from 14:05 CET to 16:00 CET.
    Make sure event had start before harvest your well prepare field!

    Anyone notice the Event Feeds Tab? :p

    I was hoping this might allow us to continue with animal feed but I am thinking it is more likely just a filter. :oops:

    my maintenance is done but sadly no event yet :( I messed up and harvested one of my fields that's when I noticed it hadn't started yet :( I know I should have checked first :( lesson learned that will just take away from my initial harvest :(

    Me too ... not hanging about for the event now. If I log in later and the event has started, I will just plant the first 5 seeds, give them a boost of SSG and wait till morning. 8)

    And I messed up with my gifts, I was so confused! :music:

    It didn't help, yet another mess up occurs at the start of an event and it seems plumbers are needed in big numbers. Bummer.

    I see some scheduled items have gone live, but not this event...I think I will wait a bit longer and refresh just after the hour to see if it goes live then...

    Thank you Moraine, and all your helpers too. :)
    I forgot there was another event in the pipe - line!!! I fell asleep with sorghum on the main field. Harvested that field and planted 44 2x2s of carnations with all the bells and whistles(SG, manure, water). Have pens and trees ready to harvest when event starts.
    Good luck to all us potential plumbers!! :p

    Using pre-set plans for all 10 levels to determine the maximums needed (crops and wrenches) I came up with following:

    Straight pipes = 202
    Bent pipes = 197

    Crops needed = 9960
    Wrenches needed = 995

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you m_adele, awesome work! I'll post it in the first post so we have it all in one place.

    Looks like two rounds is close to doable.

    After first glance it seems like previous runs of the same were much better. Many more star coins to gather and actuall rewards to buy, now Treasure Hunt Crate is all there is? I don't pay that much attention to the game to remember what exactly was happening on previous runs of the same event, but this looks like yet another downgrade, another step in destructing what once used to be a good game. Am I missing something? Can I get insight from those who keep records of the game developement pls. Thinking of skipping it completely as I did both the the overly greedy last breeding event and poorly balanced Temple Monkey Day.
