    Ugh.....we just had a repeat mission and now another one. I know people who are still working on the cattle drive. Really not looking forward to this one at all. Was hoping for a better mission for halloween guess not. It's nice to have a themed mission, but not one that is going to take well after Halloween to finish..

    Almost bought some horse shoes earlier... after seeing this... everything I feared and have come to loathe about the game lately I am glad I did not. Not a penny more from me. Enough with the freaking begfests and repeatables already!

    I would enjoy crafting, if only we didn't have to ask for part of it. Or only have it as a wall post and growing something or tending something. The growing and tending animals if the fun part of the game, to see how fast you can do things by yourself or have neighbors come visit and help.
    I do not mind repeating missions twice, but 3 or 4 times can be hard for a lot of players.

    That 2nd wrapper is as OTT as usual. 168 of this item, 120 of that item 60 drops from forges. And all for what? The dragon goose is old hat and I'm sure i have brooms from last year that never saw the light of day again. Probably not too hideous otherwise but I'm losing interest in posting for 168 Ten Gallon Crowns already.

    MIscalculated. The Ten Gallon Crown at 168 is a doddle. It is the 240 Simple Thread that will wind me up most.
