Asking for items on levels haven't obtained

Postby Disappointed » Wed Aug 15, 2018 12:44 pm

Why would your game ask for an item on a level that I have not obtained? Am I supposed to trade for this? Am I supposed to spend money to obtain this item? This is not good game planning.

what item is it asking for and where?

I'm only guessing but sometimes in your trade post it asks for something to develop a character storyline. it shows up at the bottom of your trade post and you cannot delete it. if that is the case it means you have advanced the storyline faster than expected for your levels.

i think at some point it has happened to us all. :)

I think you are right. Apart from storyline requests, I don’t think this game does ever ask for items not available at the player’s level.

It may ask for an item from a mill you haven’t bought yet, but it will be one you are eligible to buy.

It may ask for an item needing a recipe you don’t have yet, but it will be one you could buy if you had the pearls, not one you are not yet eligible to buy due to game or character level.

At least, that has been my experience.

My storyline trade is asking for mango crepes and I can’t complete the trade because I don’t have like at level 19 yet, and can’t purchase the recipe lol.....I’m working on it tho, and definitely have the pearls to buy it when he levels up.

Yes, there are a few places where players seem to progress the storyline ahead of levels and characters. Mango crepes is one, the top hat is another one that stops people for a while.

On Sunday, I bet lots of top hats and mango crepes will be available on the WM. I remember being stuck without those items, and it was tough for a while. Hang in there!

I'm not too worried...I'm not super excited about processing that story line, just trying to get my stuff stocked for the retrofest coming up, thankfully I finished the piñata with enough time to GET stocked back up, I feel for those who didn't get theirs finished yet and are still blowing through items to get the trade post order bag o candies.

I can pass on the mango crepes, if you need them :D I can meet you at Joanna’s, Kitty’s, Jerry’s, etc and you can hitch a ride back to my island. Just let me know ;)

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the offers, and perhaps one day I will take you up on it, but I'm just gonna work on it, and let it go to other lower level players....I've been putting in minimal effort lately, and just don't feel right taking a mango crepe that someone else all gung ho can use. I'll get there, I'm in no rush :).
