I was surprised to see a Double Pet XP event started today. It’s “limited time” so no clue when it’s over; it’s quite unusual to have it start on Monday, so I don’t have a “normal” to use for guessing. Normal would be to start on Wednesday or Thursday and run through Sunday. Sometimes they have one just for a day. Update: I finally ran into a tweet from KI that it is just for today, 6/5/17
During the event, pets receive double XP for pet games, eating gear, seeds and housing objects, and from pet snacks. You can get as much as 112 points playing a pet game if you get all the points for the game (8 when doubled), and feed a 50 XP “loved” pet snack (the 50 doubles and so does the 2 points for being loved, so 104).
Get into your energy gear, put your mega snacks in your backpack and train up your pets at double speed!

The holiday drops for Easter started today. As usual you can get themed gear (a bunny costume!) and pets. Oddly there don’t seem to be housing items for Easter — back in Pixie Hollow we’d have had decorative eggs, flower arrangements…
There are also special mounts (including permanent) you can only get if you fight a boss equal to your level (i.e. level 90 would go to Azteca, level 20 would go to Krokopatra in KT). So you may not see as many level 110s fighting Lord Nightshade as usual during holiday drop events…
For more on the gear see here.
I farmed Jade Oni for a while tonight without getting a single holiday drop. Seems like it’s feast or famine with these. At Halloween I got just about nothing. At Christmas I c
Should last through Sunday night, so have fun this week!

I’ve been a bit lax on the posting front on all my blogs lately so I didn’t manage to post a heads up on Wednesday when Double Garden XP days started. Through Sunday you get double XP, gold and harvest drops for all gardening. Took me by surprise as I’d not expected one for a while, but it happened I had a bunch of gardens sitting at elder harvest 🙂
There’s possibly enough time to plant Couch Potatoes, Snap Dragons or Tiger Lilies and get them to elder harvest if you have every like as those grow pretty fast but it’s too late for most plants–although you could get a mature harvest or three off some, like Evil Magma Peas.
I’m mostly pointing this one out to note it tends to be a good moment to pick up some of the rarer or hard-to-get treasure cards and reagents at the Bazaar as all the gardening folks are getting huge harvests and needing to sell stuff. I’ve already hit the limit on treasure cards and headed to the Bazaar to sell them with several wizards numerous times.
For instance, Evil Magma Peas drop lots of Feints and Tower Shields. I have so many for most of my wizards that I sell quite a few at this point. EMPs also drop Black Lotus, Scrap Iron, and Sandstone (among others) and most of my wizards have huge stores of them plus I have the maximum in the Shared Bank so I’ve been selling lots of reagents too.
If you’re looking for crafting ingredients or to shore up your TC collection, spend time sitting at the Bazaar this weekend!
