    330 Aunt Irma's baskets?

    I just reached the third part of stage 1, and I have to make at least 330 Aunt Irma's gift baskets.

    I wonder what BB where thinking here. 330 gift baskets is over 30 hours of production in a level 5 provision house. And it is a useless buff that I have no interest in making at all in the first place.

    Thats it for me, not going to waste more time on this crisis. Will probably be even more ridiculous quests down the line, so better not waste any more time on this.

    Sorry BB, but this was not good.

    While I agree it's a ridiculous quest, the rewards (gems, starcoins,...) are more than worth it. And there are x2-x3-x4 buffs for the Provision house, and you can sell the buffs if you don't use them.

    it is indeed bizarre to be required to make so many of a really really useless buffs (although our low levels are going to love getting spammed with them), but with a barazek on it, which you should have at that level, it's only 8 hours

    The point of a crisis quest is to sink resources. BB could have just as well just asked us to pay the fish/bread/sausages instead of making buffs out of them.

    Nope, not 330 baskets, but 450 from 66 . Slap a barazek on.

    It is fine by me- but cant see how it uses up my resources when I have to buff myself 160 times. I
    If for some reason support feels the need to edit what I wrote, please delete entire post instead, dont put words into my mouth that I never said.

    The Quest lasts 7 days, longer now cause of the hotfixes etc, there is more than enough time to complete them and like someone mentioned the rewards far outweigh the resources used. Spare a thought for anyone who's in the middle/early stages of upgrading prov house.

    The reasoning behind this is quite simple, BB have tailored the quests for the lowest common denominator. Everyone doing the quests has a Provision House, not all have the Rarity Provision House or has the Recipes to make better buffs. Therefore BB are constrained to give us quests to make Baskets. They do however set them in the belief that you have a minimal level of PH for your level. This allows them to increase the difficulty by increasing the numbers of baskets to be made.

    Only the shortsighted would call them useless as they can be used for any "Buff a friend" Quest which comes your way.
    When it comes to Gene pools and shallow ends they can be found at the bar drinking pina colada's

    I have to make 450, so you got it easy :P

    Just drop a barazek buff on it, and accept that the whole quest chain isn't going to finish in a day. We got a whole week lol.
