Yes, all idols can be harvested from the plants. I'm currently farming to get additional Ninja Pig idols to upgrade to another tier (they are extremely rare drops, because I assume the Fairy idols also come from Death seeds).

Additionally, there is no silver Ninja Pig idol. Gold just happens to be the color they gave Ninja Pig (Cyclops is pink, Krokomummy is purple, etc). Higher tiers require more idols (which again, are extremely hard to come buy), but the colors don't seem to play a factor.

I've exclusively been farming Death, Life and Balance seeds with the following results:

1x Ninja Pig idol (with an additional idol from Scroll of Fortune)

3x Cyclops idol (with a fourth from Beastmoon event)

1x Draconian idol
Really? I'd better give it a shot! (If I can, my Lunari is currently going towards unlocking the Cyclops...)

to be honest i just love the beastmoon hunt but one of the downsides to some of the new events is the spiral showcase. one of the quests requires the highest world which is empyrea at the time and that is very unfair to low level wizards like me. also some feedback for the beastmoon hunt, maybe you should add schools to it like ! finnigan unicorndreamer level 63

Question: Why can't I get past 1000 points on the Scroll of Fortune rewards? I have 1400+ points now, but the rewards are stuck on Tier 4 and 1000 points. Is this a glitch?

A idea for a prize could be a chance to win a Peacock bird as a mount.

As seen earlier in this post by several other people, I think because there are so many different things to do while playing W101, I don't think KI can please all of its fan base with all of the items in a singular Scroll. That being said it might be wise to create multiple different Scrolls of Fortune that are tailored to the different playstyles and activities in the game. Points towards each Scroll could be earned through doing the activity related to that scroll. Scrolls specifically for pvp (arguably because pvp is a touchy thing), pet training, gardening, fishing, along with a generic scroll for questing would be a must. As for filling them with items and other goodies, that's up to KI but me hinks they could come up with something. At the same time it would be a good way of introducing new items and exilirs to players.

So for example say KI does this and, there's a pet specific Scroll of Fortune. Where you can earn the base items are already available in the game/crown shop (ie. Mega Snack Pack, plant seeds that can drop mega snacks as they grow, 1hr Pet XP Exilir, Pet Hatching Exilir, Pureu's Potion #9, energy exilir, etc...) just by doing pet training related things like raising pets, hatching pets, playing pet mini games, participating in the pet derby (would love to see more players in per derby, even if they are only there for the rewards from the Scroll). Then for items in the part of the scroll that require purchase make these items 'Scroll Exclusives' things that can only be obtained through the Scroll and nowhere else (these rewards could be new pets with great first generation talents, new exilirs for pet trainers maybe a reroll talent exilir that rerolls the last talent a pet earned, a 1 hr Triple Pet XP exilir, new mega snacks. etc...). This would make the Scroll more enticing to players and worth buying, and still even if you decide not to buy the scroll you still walk away with very useful items that players still covet. To prevent issues regarding fairness and to avoid a pay to win mechanic you could limit the amount of rewards that could be unlocked per day per scroll. Say you decide later to buy the scroll, no big deal keep the retroactive reward mechanic active. This approach to the Scroll would provide players a more customizable game experience and gives players more reason to come back and keep playing.

On top of this certain Scrolls could be bundled together in a kind of package, and points from either activities could contribute towards progression of either scroll OR another teir of exclusive rewards unlocked by doing both respective activities (this would be fair in my mind because you're already paying for two Scrolls verses one) for example bundling a Pet Scroll with a Gardening Scroll as those tend to go hand in hand for most players and provide exclusivr rewards geared towards both activities.

These are my thoughts and suggestions for the Scroll of Fortune.

Hi, is your name a riddle? Riddle me back(wards)!

Anyway, you have wrong info on "highest world". It is not Empyrea. It is the highest world of the particular wizard you are on.

But this can cause a problem still. My lvl 41 highest world right now is Wysteria.
Problem 1 -
Not many dungeons in WS.
Problem 2 -
No one was asking for help with WS the past few days.
Problem 3 -
I found out the reason for problem 2. It was because I had yet to start any dungeon. How was I to know

As for Spiral Showcase and Scroll of Fortune. These too have a problem.

I redeemed a reward for 3 tc from a pack. I got 2 of the 3 tc and a message from Harold Argleston saying I have too many tc. I lost my reward that I worked hard earning points for.

I sent the information to Customer Support who told me they will not give me my reward. I then suggested they give us a warning if a reward will be lost upon redeeming. They told me they don't take suggestions and guided me to post here. Ugh.

Now I have questions concerning all of the other rewards. I know the answer to crowns rewards, those are never lost even if our backpack and bank are both full. That is real good. But many of us wizards have near-full inventories. I am now hesitant to redeem my rewards because I don't want my backpack filling up with rewards I will want to save. I want to fill up my backpack before redeeming anything but do not want to lose any reward.

Another problem is - not being able to see what a reward is once after we get the points for it. Not everyone can remember what they are. I think a way to improve this is to not have the reward go into our inventory upon the first click to redeem it. Give us a quick message reminding us what the reward is and a choice to redeem now. Furthermore, if our inventory would be over the amount allowed if we click to redeem, then you have to give us a warning or just make it like buying packs that don't allow the purchase or opening of them if it would take us over the limit.

Sparck, Vanessa Mythdust, can someone please answer my concerns in this post, and also let us know about every single reward in all the Events, if we do not have inventory room then will we lose our hard-earned reward?

Thank you :D

PS: Oh yea, having to pay for rewards for each wizard... that's no good. Please also answer the poster above wanting to know if we have to buy the Scroll every season. I'd like to know that too. And will the reduced price of 7,500 crowns always be there?

So, has anyone got the Death Ninja Pig GOLD Idol as a drop from the plant?
I have had 17 regular Death Ninja Pig Idols from plants,
But none are GOLD.

I understand that the balance cyclops is only red and will unlock and upgrade the beast form. There is only one kind of cyclops statue, compared to the ninja pig which has two: an orange/copper statue, (for regular tier upgrade/ lvl 5 unlock) and the GOLD statue to initially unlock the beast form. I have elder harvested at least 20 death seeds by now and have yet to receive a gold statue. I have only received the orange/copper pig statues.
It would seem you must get the gold one from the SOF if you want to play this beast form in the hunt.

What about the people who aren't as high a level and/or don't do PVP very much?

Is the Scroll of Fortune available across all accounts yet? I can easily envision a person wanting the rewards on all their Wizards, and finding the price reasonable. But if it's only available on a single account per purchase, then the price suddenly becomes outlandish and admittingly frustrating. Is the Scroll of fortune available across our entire account, or are there plans to do this soon?

That's what I'm understanding now, as well. Initially, I thought the colors didn't mean anything (and still don't for the other forms), but Ninja Pig does have an actual special idol of "gold" that seems only available in Scroll of Fortune. Looking at all the Ninja Pigs I collected in my inventory from gardening were simply just "Ninja Pig idol". The gold one I received must have come from me redeeming Scroll of Fortune, without realizing it (since both Ninja Pig idols are offered as rewards in SoF).

I do find it odd that the "gold idol" is not discussed on the update notes, KI developer vlog, etc. There is absolutely no official information on this aspect of Beastmoon that I could find.

Can someone please answer,

Which rewards do we lose if we do not have the inventory space when we click to redeem?

@Sparck, Can you please make the game give us a warning if we will not receive our reward!?

I am waiting on a lot of rewards that I will not redeem because I am low on inventory space and I do not want to lose any more items. I already lost 1 tc that I earned! And Customer Support response was a basic, 'too bad, so sad'.

Unless the item is marked with a Crowns symbol, it will automatically get trashed. This happened to me regarding the new Scroll of Fortune jewel (the one with may cast tower shield). It wasn't marked as a Crowns item (even though you can only obtain it from Crowns) and my jewel inventory become full when I redeemed one of the SoF rewards prior (a pack that contained some random jewels).

Has anyone else noticed the Scroll of Fortune's new fourth page? It has a single item in it: A picture furniture item that appears to be limited-time to this event. It's available one point after the last item on the list, and is labeled simple as "Fall Scroll of Fortune Season 1." I look forward to getting it!

I’ve seen this question a few times on this thread and would love an “official” answer. I see we’re going for the FALL scroll - I assume there will be one for each season. But if I get the FALL scroll, will it be good for NEXT Fall as well? And the next Fall? Or is this not so much a FALL Scroll as a Fall 2019 Scroll? A bit of clarity would be greatly appreciated

Casp

Also, props to getting a Derby mention in this thread. Yes, more Derby stuff!!

Did anyone else believe that getting to the final prize in the scroll of fortune would actually be a scroll of fortune from the way it was labeled? All six wizards in my family (on my account) are on pace to reach that reward. Being the eldest I of course made sure I was the first imagine my disappointment when I clicked on this reward and all the locks on the board did not open. I received the wall hanging pictured cool as a collectible yes but not what I expected. We are a low income family who have always relied on prepaid cards as membership fees could possibly overdraw us on certain months and want to continue to play(in areas bought with crowns from the bundles) and have always appreciated that king's isle has designed a system that much of the best gear comes from farming of course that are some that must be bought.
That is what made me believe that the end prize was the scroll the way it was labeled. Let me be clear I got exactly what was pictured not trying to claim false advertising just please be careful about labeling in the future. I brought this up through support and was encouraged to post it here

Hi Daniel,

I think you mean, why didn't you get all of the locked prizes when you reached the end, right?
If that is not what you meant, let me know.
The Scroll is there just to award even more prizes to each wizard whether they purchase the scroll or not.
Wizards earn points for each qualifying Event, while also accumulating points on the Fall SOF for more prizes.

It sounds like you did not purchase the scroll at 15,000 crowns for the non-member price. It is a lot of crowns!
If you did not purchase the scroll, you would not receive any of the locked prizes whether you are on Tier 2 or Tier 10. You would only get "all the locks on the board" open if you bought the scroll for that wizard.

Hope this helps to explain it.
