This year’s summer event is live. Join the crowds drifting towards Watchmaker’s Hill to see the botanical wonders of the Neath. Begin the story through ‘The London Horticultural Show’, available anywhere in London.
Don’t forget that besides the plant that is currently locked (‘Violant wing’ lily-caps), we have no clue about: 1. Cautionary Orchids, 2. ‘Silent Spore’, Oortcaps, 3. Infernal Marigolds, 4. ‘Blushing Coquette’ Exile’s Roses, 5. Smuggled Nidah Blooms, 6. ‘Whisperer’ Exceptional Roses, 7. ‘Retrofuturist’ Iremi Roses, 8. ‘Scandalmonger’ Veiled Caps and 9. False-Cantigaster Hybrids. A total of 15 plants.
I’ve just finished my first plant, and I’ve noticed something. All of the judges are members of the Dilmun Club. Also, one of the plants we haven’t unlocked yet (that you can see in the options that are unlocked by having any plant) are smuggled Nidah Blooms. (Also false-cantigaster hybrids which is also very intriguing). I’d bet that the inevitable disastrous escalation has something to do with the Dilmun Club and their quest for immortality. Maybe the Prester takes offense at the smuggling and retaliates?
Yes, but I think it’s worth to try all of them at least once. Here are my results so far:
A cutting from your Singular Plant: You now have 1617 x Horticultural Prestige.
Peppercaps, hopefully prize-winning: You’ve gained 3981 x Horticultural Prestige
‘Purple Maiden’ lily-caps: You’ve gained 491 x Horticultural Prestige
I’m guessing that Prestige is worth a pence per level, right? I got around 9kish from a Mandrake. If you can cash them out for rewards at 1 pence per Prestige, that works out to around 5 EPA. A bit less, since it’s actually hard to 100% those checks.
I’m honestly wondering if the current activity is one that will become permanently available after the Show completes. It seems a bit similar to the Museum. I suppose we might find out more when the Opening Ceremony happens tomorrow.
I find festival very dull so far. Waiting for something interesting to happen.
On the good side, it’s the first event that has no lags, servers are sailing very smoothly. Congratulations to the tech team.
I’m noticing that plant-growing really favours anyone with Persuasive 334+: even at difficulty 200 I get to make one 94% watchful check, then it’s 16 x 100% Persuasives in a row. Granted, 9803 / 19 actions = ~5.15 EPA (theoretically) isn’t world-shattering, but it is a curious asymmetry.
