    The Mystery of Herbs III

    Mini-games Tasks (Left side tasks) requirements:

    At the start of the event, we get 1 Portable Greenhouse (mill product) as a gift.
    • If we want to go for the cloud only, you have to play 35 games. What we need: 420 glue pots and 350 broken bottles (drop items)
    Even though you can play uptil 100 minigames. I think finishing 89 or 90 mini games is enough. Because 100th mini game gives you a rewards of 100% EP on crops. So not worth the strain. 90th mini game gives you +2 crops as reward. After 90th, the next slab is 100, so only if you are planning to get +2 crop bonus you need to do 90th game.
    • Else, 89 games are enough. For that we need : 1068 glue pots and 890 Broken Glasses.
    • If you want to be even more frugal, you can stop at 53rd minigame and get 38 PFs. For which we will need 624 Glue pots & 530 broken bottles.
    Herbs Tasks (Right Side Tasks ) Requirements: (Thanks to SahraB)
    Also for the Mystery of Herbs Magic Stalk Row III-2
    Requirements: (50 level)

    1,080x Prickly fungi
    1,540x Valley roses
    1,380x Water berries

    Requirements for all herb tasks: (75 level)

    3,130x Prickly fungi
    3,100x Water berries
    3,080x Valley roses

    How to play the event

    1 )You need to collect drops to mill the special item to play the mini-game.
    The event has 2 parts -
    2) Each Game played, gives you rewards and also Crates O' Herbs which contains special seeds.
    3) You cannot directly deposit these seeds into the event. Plant them and harvest them to deposit in the event window.
    4) You cannot replant these seeds. You have once again play & get them from the crates which you get as reward from each mini-game.
    5) Finishing the mini game with less number of steps gives you more crates as rewards.
    6) You can also buy event seeds from markets & they can only be deposited in the event and not planted in the fields.
    7) At 8th , 31st, 47th mini game we get +1, +2 and +3 extra event crops respectively. They start immediately.

    8 ) Apart from this mini games 60, 70 & 90 gives you +1, +2, +3 crops respectively.
    9) If you finish the herb task side you can earn 30 BBs

    Event Seeds -
    Water berry seed

    Valley rose seed
    Prickly fungus seed

    This time this event requires less event drops and less mill time than previous events. To mill one Portable Greenhouse we need only 12 glue pots which was 16 in previous events and 10 broken glasses instead of 13 in previous event. Milling time reduced to 1.15 mins instead of 7.30 mins (in previous event)

    Thanks One-Two for starting the thread and doing the hard work! ;)

    I will collect all the drops, mill them and play as many games as I can/want. If I feel that the number of seeds I get is enough to get somewhere, I will plant them but if not I will just play the mini-games.:p

    I checked and double checked and can find nothing of excitement in the prize list - please enlighten me if I missed something! So going to use this time to build up stocks maybe chip away at a few FSQs and just generally put my farm in order.:D
    Good luck all who are going for it! :inlove:

    The cloud rows aren't all that interesting. The prizes I like the most are 25 BB, 117 PF, 250 farm coins (I'm running low) and 6 short harvester coupons.

    I'll adjust my strategy from the first event (was away for the second) and grow all crops in one go with SG and the event crop bonuses. Growing crops will take less than 4 hours (+ almost 700 SG, but worth it). Rest of the time I can raise lynxes for the next breeding event. So I'm in :)

    From the grapevine. We don't know for sure, but the rumors there are usually accurate :)

    ack. Thanks for the heads up about the lynx, Mir. And thanks 12ss12 for starting this thread. I'm in on both farms as usual. Sorry I haven't been around, RL has gotten a bit weirder than normal of late, but I've managed to survive and I'm still farming!

    Now there's a goal I might consider! Do as many mini games as I can, plant what I can and sell, sell, sell! :music:
    I missed this detail in the FAQs so thanks for highlighting it, SahraB! ;)

    Thanks, dozens, for this wonderful info/strategy. And thanks, SahraB, for crunching the numbers. I didn't do all of the events, lately, and I was bored stupid(er)

    Played the first 7 games. Now I have to wait to play more until I'm ready to activate the event crop bonuses.

    Canceling trick still works. I'm leaving the game and starting afresh if I don't fint the treasure in 4 digs. That way I'm guaranteed 7 crates per game, with 9 sometimes when I'm lucky. See this post for my digging strategy ;)

    From the 7 games I got 53 crates containing 20 prickly fungus, 30 valley rose and 27 water berries. On average 1.5 seeds per crate or 10 seeds per game.

    Thank you 12 for starting thread and your detailed evaluation for idiots like me to understand.

    I cant remember from previous events if its prudent to grow herbs in 1x1's or 2x2's. Im sure you get more from 1x1's.

    Thanks One Two for the start and compiled event info. Handy!

    I tried a few different pens to see the minimum runtime for a Broken Glass drop. So far pens that run for 6hr or more (base) have proven to give a good result: 10 drops out of 13 pens.

    I won't be doing this one. It's driving me crazy trying to get the small amount of seeds. I did not like it the last time they had it and I don't like it any better this time.
