    Even though I have finished Montezuma ages ago, PG has seen fit to make us get fireflies to renter Montezuma again.

    They want us to get 200 fireflies

    Although you can get fireflies keys from the ship, The Bug Catcher (who has very quick voyages - 30 min, 60 min, and 3 hr) and the merchant, The Bug Collector, the fireflies can only be got from opening the mystery chest.

    I already had 184 fireflies keys, so I used them to open chests. Please note you don't get as many fireflies as you use fireflies keys to open them.

    So now I only have 4 keys and have to collect more from ship and merchant to open the chest to get enough fireflies to open the portal. I will keep you posted on how it goes.

    Picture about ship and merchant can be found here

    There is no fairness or consistency in TPC; so just because you have it in your cove, it may not be the case for everyone. And just because everyone else has it, doesn't mean you will. Except crashing, everybody has crashing!

    Good news,
    The total of opened chest fireflies keys are cumulative.

    I'm so glad I finally noticed the difference between what we get from ship and merchant and the mystery chest. It was doing my head in why they didn't match up.

    Curious, I can still get into Montezuma without being asked for fireflies. I checked my total after reading these posts and it is less than 200. My Bug Catcher also only returned 3 white pearls when I sent it on a sprint voyage. Seems like not all of us are affected.

    Doesn't surprise me. Have you read my signature?

    Yes, very much made me think of your signature line.

    The same change happened to me too. I had enough keys so I got 200 fireflies and went there. I really cannot tell anything new nor different. I wonder what would happen after 2 days since it says it is open only for that much time

    IDK, but we'll find out in 2 days....

    Probably nothing, just have to get 200 fireflies again.

    One of my guildmates said it had happened to her. She said after a while it went back to normal. Hope ours do the same.

    It has been 2 days for me. And yes you are right CT, I have to get another 200 fireflies if I want to go there.

    Is your portal open? It does not bring keys when the portal is open.

    Yes it is open. I learned what you said a hard way which is always the only way. I thought I would get keys ahead so I can keep it open all the time. Like it used to be. Oh well

    Me too, but I'm not going to open it until I need to do a quest there.

    Just discovered, there's a limit on keys, I can only keep 400 keys. Merchant and voyages no longer produce any. I'll have to convert to fireflies and open portal, or not get anymore until I do.
