    Feel free to start another thread about the Fruit Quest.

    I have a question that I need help with some Math. Is there any possibility of me making 2000 new coins during this event so I can buy the 100 GB for 2,200 coins. I already have 259 coins.

    I have figured out that this will require me to complete the large donation 250 times. 250 x 224,000 = 56,000,000. I do realize that the needed amount will increase each time so.....

    How do I figure out how much my fruit is worth to see if it will be possible.

    Thanks for your help.

    You can see the values of your tree fruits in your barn, shown in the Exchange value column... but we do not get a total value of all of our tree fruit stocks, we have to multiply our totals and add them all up :sleepy:

    I never donate much more than a few tree fruits from my barn just to top off whatever Wonderfruit donations I could make without over-donating too much BV/EV (which is usually only a few donations), but back in February's Fruit Market strategy thread it was mentioned by clonahmon that there were only 20 donation steps for each size basket, and the total Farm Coins you could gain for donating to all 60 steps was only 240 Farm Coins.

    I have no idea whether or not we can continue to donate after we've reached the 20th step of each size basket :wuerg:

    Thanks Peeps!!! Thank is some good information about the over all limit of this event.

    I did a partial guestimint of my high EV trees from just Baha where I have the most fruit. I feel confident that I have more than 50,000,000 worth of fruit. Which then asks the question. Do I really want to donate all of this fruit?

    Now that I know there are limits, then I might max everything out to get as many coins as I can get.

    Maybe one day, I will have the 2,000 coins to get those 100 GB's.

    No matter what I decide to do with my fruit stock. I am gone to max out most of my fields with trees so I can get the Wonder coins.

    Good luck to all in reaching your goals!

    @sglick Don't forget to use a Pineapple Cake to get +1 from your Baha trees!
    Hope you get a big pocket of FCs ;)

    I think the donation baskets just keep going. I don't know of anyone who donated that far but maybe sglick will be the first:) You can always ask in GQ for a mod to confirm.

    Just to help you plan, if you did all 20 of the Small, Medium and Large baskets, you would donate the equivalent of just over 11 million barn value worth of fruit. This may be slightly less because of donating the drops too but not much. It will give you 240 coins.

    If you decide to keep going, be aware that the basket donations continue to increase so the next round of small, medium and large baskets would ask for more than the 11 million.

    I hope you can make a nice dent in your goal of farm coins. Good luck!:)

    Hi, Sglick!

    I was in a similar position a few weeks ago though I wasn't quite so ambitious, I wanted 1,200 FCs to get 50 GBs to open the final statues that I needed for some FSQs and I thought I would never make it. Plus I kept being tempted by the shop offers and spent FCs on the way so had to start the long climb again! :eek:

    I don't know quite what I did but somehow I managed to get the GBs (probably an event or two), did quite a few FSQs plus a couple of level ups and before I knew it, I had opened up the long awaited statues and now am the proud owner of 131 GBs sitting waiting for the next offer or statue thrown at us! :)

    Look at those FSQs - there are GBs lurking there to be picked ... and very soon you will have a mountain of them. You might be better off donating your fruit to some of those FSQs. The additional bonus is that you can see clearly what is required. :music:

    Good luck! ;)

    I'll be doing this in parts. I saw the shop offered Grave-cactuses (forgot the proper name, it's those that takes for ever and a full moon), and I want those. With coins to spare. So if I can, I'll earn enough FC for that/those - hey a dog can dream!

    Thanks Ladies!

    Peeps - I always use PC when I can. When I 1st came back. I would activate the PC to harvest the Baha trees and then deleted for a CAC so I could harvest crops. Ridiculous! Now, I try and plan better.

    Also, thanks for the link to the old thread. Extremely useful!!! I wish I could be as clever as you in being able to find and post old helpful links. :)

    Illy - I am doing the FSQs as quickly as I can that is how I've gotten all my GB's except I did level up twice since I have been back.

    If there is just 1 thing this game has taught me over the years that is slow diligent perseverance can accomplish unthinkable tasks. The finale level of the trophies taught us all that fact. HaHaHa I've even been able to transfer this understand to my RL. It will be the way I finish the book that I am working on. LOL

    PNP - 240 FC for 11M of fruit. Is not sounding too good this morning. I deeply appreciate you giving me these numbers. There is a good reason why I have so much fruit. I AM A HOARDER!!! LOL I don't know if I can part with all my fruit. LOL xDxDxD

    I'll keep you all informed of what I decide and what happens.

    EDIT: Moraine - That looks like a much better goal!!! Thanks for pointing them out to me. I would have missed it.

    Thanks Eagle Eye Moraine! I never noticed the spooky seedling in the shop either - but now I have spare FCs, do I want to spend them on a tree that may be in my selection of secret ghostly seedlings? o_O

    I do have one of those but if it was the other one, there would be no contest, it would be in my barn toot sweet! :D

    I did do the first level of each basket but I will leave anything else till tomorrow and sleep on it!

    So many decisions ... :music:

    Well, the change in the shop hasn't happened yet. (Tomorrow?). I have one cactus, but as they take forever to grow I figured I could do with 2 more. Can only buy 2, and it's a guaranteed cactus. Not a hope of a cactus, an actually real one with spikes and everything. So if my MM seedlings turns into more cactuses I have a nice stock to put up inbetween MMs, or to trade later for something else.

    Just a thought.. if time growing is the factor that determine the drop chance... then the cactus tree must be the best drop-maker we got :D Could be great for future MM drops.

    Too much fruit!!!!!

    I only got about 208 FC. I still need 92 more FC for the Cactus. I will get it - I hope.

    My strategy is to donate the highest EV tree with the largest amount. I stop when it gets to about 5000 and then go down to the next tree. Eee-gads this is wiping me out!!!

    I am only doing the medium and large for now. Maybe the last 10 coins. I will do the small. The large is up to 420,000 donations. The medium is pretty high too. Now my decision is which is more effective.

    My heart totally sank when my Grapefruited were reduced from 11,000 to 5,000 in a few clicks by the medium. Yikes!!!

    Thanks PNP, but I finished with this event. I got my 500 FC.

    I did figure out that it was about 3 million less fruit to do 11 more large as opposed to doing 30 more mediums. I still have a nice supply of trees so I guess I'm happy.

    I just noticed that I do not have the Goat Willow or the Juju (whatever) trees. I don't know if my nerves can take trying to get another 140 FC. Plus, are those trees really worth it when I already bought the fruit in the market to complete those FSQ's. - I think, not!!!!!!

    EDIT - PNP - I checked. My large is at 672,934 donations & my medium is at 212,017 donations. This large indicated that we can continue to donate passed 20 times.

    I only did 100 FC in fruit, I had 1390 and gained 10Fc in a quest.

    Hmm tricky question. I have this theory that any rare item offered up in the shop is done so for a reason. They are likely to be used in an upcoming event or needed for more quests. So far the Butterfly might prove my point. It was the first rare to be offered up in the shop I think. Another factor that comes into play, how easily can you obtain those missing trees through mystery seedling rewards or G/T event ?

    One thing to remember is that the Farm Coin shop is a permanent feature and some items have been available for months. There is no hurry to gain anything in there from this event. You have time to think about it, put out your Eerie ghost spooky trees before deciding if you want/need the cactus candle tree, as well as the goat willow or jujube tree. This will give you time to gather Farm coins from the wheel, quests, Fuzzles (does he give those?), and other events. I think both goat willow and jujube trees were available last Gift and trade so that may be an option if you are patient and wait until its return.

    Moraine - I totally agree with you and I used to keep an eye out for these influences. I am sure these 2 trees will be needed again in the future which does influence my decision now.

    I just think at this point in the quest since my donations are so high that donating enough fruit to get another 140(?) FC is just not worth it.

    EDIT: Good points PNP! More to think about. LOL

    Also this event will run for some days, and if you're in tree hug mode, you can gain some drops, that might earn you some coins as well. I think items in the shop stays for at least 2-3 months or so.

    Edit: And the wheel it can be really nice sometimes as well. (and the FC boxes from CR or rewards)
