Trade Fest 101

Postby Ely321 » Thu Jun 29, 2017 3:57 am

We've had a few newbies on the forum since the last TF and I'm sure they would appreciate any tips for game strategy and prep we can offer them. Any tips for newbies?

Tip: don't harvest all your long grow trees/shrubs/crops too soon before TF so they will be ready to harvest at TF as it often asks for you to collect those-this way they are ready for you to do immediately. Otherwise you would have to either wait til they are ready or skip the request.

Anyone else feel like sharing some other tips?

Always keep some long time items ready, cocoa mango blueberries etc, as you get requests to harvest 3. If asked for 6 or 9 trash . Any requests that would take more than an hour, unless you're nearing the amount, trash, takes an hour to recycle.
Rice is always requested as 20 so plant extra so you have 10 rice plants. Many requests for nails and needles, keep blacksmith stacked, 3 at a time. They sell well too..Hope that helps.

Thx Beth, I hadn't noticed that. I don't go to that part of the Forum. :D

Also, newbies, if you have limited storage space, you may not want to keep many pearls handy, but they are essential to be able to get rid of any dock trades that are going to take hours to fill. If you have the storage parts islands, keep deleting the third slot until you get pearls there. Then, if you need pearls in the middle of TF, you can retrieve them and don't have to take up valuable space until then.

Start building musical instruments and trinkets now! The long time items, not flutes, you can always buy those and they make good trade items too as people like me will buy them since I don't make them.

I think they are too busy taking notes to respond to our genuinely remarkable and incredibly apt pearls of wisdom.

Yeah, yeah....I'm sure they are :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
But that allways has been fascinating to me, the minute tradefest starts, forum is flooded with questions, in mean time, very few people ask for advice of how to prepare for next one... Ely's intention was great, I feel sad that there is no responce to it from those which is adreesed to :(

nobody wants to help the newbies? or maybe they just want to wait until we are all too busy Saturday to waste time on the forum then complain cause they didn't have enough time to finish? :lol:
