    Dang. I tried to start this one but I'm new and waiting on a moderator. Boo. Oh well, when it finally shows up I'll just delete the thread.
    And of course I will do my part to help this one along.

    Yes this is the one i got. I didn't get the floating flames one (maybe only higher levels will get that one). Step 1 takes 6 hours to build and it was about 2400 to buy if i remember right.

    yes, and i notice that on the splash screen it says that it is till 12:00pm PDT july 31st, but when clicking on the actual quest, it says July 30th. HMMMMM wonder which one it will really be. But it's good that they are giving the actual time and timezone this time, so people know for sure when it ends. Can't wait to see how this one goes. Thanks for the new quest PG!

    Yep 2 quests. I think one is aimed for lower level players as the boat is Beths Cruiser. The other requires Golden Hind, which some players may not yet have.

    GOING FOR GOLD with all this water, I bet we're great at synchronized swimming ...

    my front screen says till 12:00pm pdt on July 31st. when going into my list of quests, this one says limited time for 5 days (but isn't 12pm the 27th through 12pm the 31st 4 days?) and then when you click on the actual quest to get the details, it says ENDS JULY 30th.

    So my question PG is which one is it? July 31st, August 1st or July 30th? just want to make sure i get done in the right timeframe.

    Lets hope its the latter. Its 27th here (in afternoon) and my game saying "5 days left" so I am guessing its the end of July (which has 31 days not 30 ;-), maybe different PG staff did those pages)

    22 krish.. i think the other quest is LEVEL based and Claddagh just happened to get both at the same time, that's what I would think anyway. Seeing as that other is NOT LTQ I guess one would do THIS one first and the other 2nd IF you did get both..

    I have none of these, so i'm guessing these will apply to the other quest that claddagh posted. Wow, this will be fun trying to keep the 2 different quests in line.

    I just got this quest about a half hour ago, and...

    I just found in my Houses listing, there are 7 new houses for coins (I previously owned all coin houses). They total 2,821,588,391 to buy ranging from 277.2M to 609.1M.

    I'm not saying that they belong as part of this or any quest, but probably do.

    I'm not sure if they are priced differently for sub-L50 players.

    I wonder if it's safe to get them now, or should I wait for the quest to call for them.

    I have going for gold quest too. I'm at level 34. I think the other quest is for players who already have the lamp post maker which is not available until level 35.

    hmmmm.. i don't think webid meant THIS Quest requires 5 new merchants and loads of houses, just that he has those... can't see how ANY Quest could need FIVE Merchants (and thus loadsss of houses) UNLESS they are all veyr cheap and quite quick to build.. i guess we will see..

    BUT, I wonder if we will need to expand and need more land (or chop tress for that) as i have no land already expanded nor many tress ready to chop OR many coins!! One thing we "know" there will be.. Mermaid Spins!!!!!!
