    Not got this myself so can't help Dael. But what help do you want? It seems clear as to what is needed.

    Buy the almond merchant, collect from it once and go on a short voyage (which you can start as soon as you can)

    I wanted to see if the almond store gave rubies. My confusion is the quest itself that give you rubies. I wish I knew the stats for almond store. If anyone pick it up please do tell.

    how many others have gotten this quest? That seems to be quite a lot of rubies as a reward.

    I got it too. 173 rubies is the price in my case, but the reward is 243 rubies. I didn't have enough rubies so I went mad tapping on the mermaids. They have taken all my money but I got the 173 rubies I needed. The merchant is building right now. I'll have to set up the alarm because it will be quite late here, in Spain, when it is finished. I hope to wake up!

    Wow lots of difference's in the reward received for this quest. But I wonder what type of device these players are using ? Could this be a quest for only Android players ?

    Lots and Lots of questions rolling around in my head.

    Interesting, cost for my Almond Store is 260 Rubies and the prize for the quest is 330 rubies. Pity I'm about 70 rubies short of being able to do it. Can't spin the mermaids as lost a billion in coins for 6 rubies in yesterday's daily challenge, I would never have the coins to finance a 70 ruby win!

    The price is a bit steep - but for once the reward is greater than the cost..... my kind of deal . What level are the players at that are getting it? Have they been getting quests lately? or are they in the group that was missing them?

    Don't have it
    Everything doesn't happen for a reason, but there is a reason for everything.

    I got it; I'm on level 35 - started playing in March '13. All quests that are being re-released are now ruby quests for me. And long collection. :-( My almond store is 75 rubies. May as well be 750. I sometimes use rubies to repair during battle, and have also used them to speed up a quest. I've purchased a few ruby merchants when I got a couple of lucky 25 ruby spins. That is it... :-( Wish I had checked here, before I passed level 6. Dern. LOL

    Hmmm... wouldn't mind having this one! It looks like the rewards are ranging between 1.25x to 1.35 times the initial expenditure (1/4 to 1/3 'profit' in rubies over the initial investment)

    My shop costs 283 rubies, reward is 303. I had 274 rubies when this popped up, and just blew 17 billion cash on spins to get the other 9 lol.

    Step 1/1
    Buy Almond Merchant (Prices vary, build time may too)
    Collect Once from Almond Merchant
    Complete a short voyage (any ship)

    REWARD 53 rubies (will vary between players)

    Does this help????

    Just had a thought........ Has anyone who has gotten this new quest NOT done the Ship Of The Enchantress Quest. Or have you done the quest and finished it.
    Just wondering if maybe it's tied into it somehow.

    Dael's screen shot is from an iOS game, not Android.

    I've been ignoring the Enchantress quests, and have not seen this one yet.

    The wildly different prices and rewards for this sound very fishy. Has anyone got this who had enough rubies on hand already to buy the merchant? I suspect the goal here is to get people to buy more rubies than they need to get the merchant, with the required total being such that you have to buy at least as many 'extra' as you get for a reward.

    I would think they are also betting on a number of people failing to make the tight time limit. Spend lots of rubies on the merchant, get the ship launched too late, or oversleep while waiting for it to build, and they manage to con you to buy an expensive, probably low payout ruby merchant... for no reward at all...

    Well I don't know how you can tell from a Screenshot if it's iOS or Android, but I'll take your word for it.

    My guess would be from the size of the menu buttons, but it's just a guess.
