    I bought Judas tree fruit and Desert rose tree fruit. I have enough now until my trees grow some more.
    I've made 200 million on Elms, hanging on to the rest :D

    Great! I don't even count the few of each that this farm has. With about 21 million tree fruit now, this farm is not getting on that Judas tree fruit and Desert rose tree bandwagon. I da even have the trees and fine with me.

    The Elm tree was so far out of the investment range using EV analysis that the farm held only a few hundred for investment. My intent always was to play Elm just like lettuce and that is exactly what I am doing. (Just bought a few at 320,000 ..... only "lettuce Elm" to me)

    Cassie, you just figure that I owe you.

    (just bought more at 280 and 290,000 ................... hahaha lettuce Elm)

    Using EV analysis doesn't mean to ignore all common sense. We just went though an event calling for what? ...450 chickens which have been in the game for years ................ and what? 150 ducks............ same story, yearsssssss . And many many event junkies just have no barn and the prices skyrocket.

    Now if the event junkies can't come up with 450 chickens or 150 ducks, what would make me think that they could come up with 40 Elm?

    broke, as your disciple in marketing, I am too playing elm like lettuce.

    I am too one of the junkies, broke. I bought ducks. But I sold other animals & products at very good price to compensate the 40 ducks I bought and after the event put duck pens and sold some of them.

    Too too many offers appearing now for me. The farm will take a 100,000 cc loss and get out. (what, 1/2 of an elm ... hahah .. take double) edit did just fine with no loss whatsoever .............. found more "lettuce elm" ...... wow, another million profit on only 8 "lettuce Elm." Maybe I'll buy a duck or something, I'm broke

    and the expense does not end there either. Why? The farm must replace the ducks submitted in the event or can be in an even worse position. We must take out risks though. And of course there were the "lettuce ducks" too.

    True, I kept some ducks without selling and I am thinking of putting up 3 fields full of ducks and do 2 harvests & replace the lost ducks by neon & pink pens & of course by buying when they are cheap too. Actually I am trying to replace whole lot of several animals & crops to have a comfortable stock & for future use.

    I have to restock my parrots, anacondas, chameleons etc., Chameleons will be needed for the next 2 breeding events. Next breeding event it is said will give a reward which everyone will like, for which a rune was freshly created.

    My market is also now lull in elm buying. So will wait for the right time and dump my elms.

    Don't know if I will bother with buying elms. It won't be the first factory upgrade that I have missed out on.

    UPDATE: All farms finished with 7 minutes remaining. Two of them have gotten elm trees from the Bone Queen's Treasure event so that helped.

    Farmers are spraying those Elms with any and everything.

    LOL I always think of doing nearly the same thing. Then I come to my senses.

    this is suporsed to be a strategy thread yet all everyone keeps mentioning is elm

    I want to know how many and what item is needed for each level. Does anyone have this info? I know for the right root it was weasels, falcons, pheasants, bisons, robins.

    ok i have figured out elm comes after the pecan nut so just the bottom bar to figure out. Someone said 19000 water chestnut to complete, is that right? Seems an awful lot in 4 days

    The FAQ has that info ;) Also, the first post has the total number of crops and drops needed to complete:

    Thanks illy et al. for, yet again, doing the numbers for me. As always much appreciated :inlove:

    I'm another one who had everything else but no Elm tree. But had 8 "Hansel trees" to put out and hey caramba the very last one was an Elm!! Which is now being given the Kings treatment - extra everything, so I'll manage the 40 needed.

    Best of luck to all!

    the FAQ are stating everything you need. Just add up the water chestnuts. Do the same with the skewers and by magic you have the numbers needed.
    Or just read the thread from the start. Most of the times (if not always) the first post has all numbers needed.
    Just READ!

    @illy1996 my calculator is working a bit differently than yours :wuerg:
    [30+60+100+160+190+250+280] = 1070 Infernal Skewers
    I'd replace the batteries but it's solar! :p
    Thank you for all your efforts illy. :):inlove:

    Had BIG internet problems all day yesterday and today.
    Seems complete Ireland has the same DNS prob, but I am back on a different DNS, so have access again.

    All event plants needed are in my barn, so I can concentrate now on getting the necessary drops. Will put out long term plants and some longer pens for the rest of the event in the hope, that I will get the drops.

    Only 4 steps to go to get the CR. Fingers crossed, that it will all work out.

    Good luck to everybody!!

    Here, only 56 drops and another 3750 event crop - 3 harvests of 2 fields 1x1s - to go till CR. Event runs for 60+ hours so I dare to say I'll make it.
    Didn't do anything special, just harvesting in time, three, four times a day, and long timed crops overnight did good for the drops. Smooth event. Only wished there where a few more cursed coins rewarded as prize.

    Stay spooky and do not forget to prepare your CRs and buffs to be ready for the upcomming events.
