    You forgot "Get Adventurers Palm" which is an additional 49 Rubies!!! You have to scroll down the task list for it to show though. I had to check twice. I can't imagine the reward, An Orchid Grower, is worth 117 Rubies, but since some sell for 199 in the merchant list, who knows.

    Really this "quest" is just an opportunity to purchase another ruby merchant.

    Much too rich for my blood.

    At least I got it about the same time as DA.
    Any word on the Grower?

    This wasn't one of those phased rollouts. I got it too, and I usually don't get it until way after DA does.

    It doesn't matter, though. I'm having nothing to do with this.

    I don't quite get why anyone spends money on this game. It's a free, evolving diversion. Why spend real capital on an increasingly buggy game?

    lol the only way ill get these is if that merchant is paying ALOT...

    I'm not buying it. They keep changing the rules. Why would I invest in something that isn't going to be the same next week?

    So they want me to buy 3 trees that just take up valuable space and I get a "free" merchant... yea no thanks.

    These ruby quests are getting absolutely ridiculously expensive and you end up with low paying merchants and sizable net loss in rubies.
    Instead of this one I would rather buy a fence builder for 97 rubies (132 mill/24 hrs) then waste the 20 rubies saved on the mermaids

    NO thanks.
    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    I am curious to see what the stats on the orchid merchant are - maybe it will be worth it.

    I guess its possible but they haven't been worth it in the past. I understand they want to make them fun for lower levels but they seem to forget low level players do not have extra space. It seems to me that you have to be level 50 to be able to afford the land required to begin thinking about decorating.

    I know what you mean about not having extra space - I just hit level 31 and space is at a premium. I keep juggling items around . . .

    This one feels like a bet between PG employes to see just how a price they can set and still find someone to do a quest out of a misplaced sense of obligation.

    I think I might pass on this. Based on the info so far, the expense in rral money is not worth it.

    PASS - love the trees and the merchant though for beauty and added foliage to the game - but not at that price!

    Wow... 41k? There have been some rediculous low paying merchants in some of the TLQs but for a one off expensive ruby merchant...

    Feel sorry for the designer so few will get to enjoy it.

    Love the look of the trees. But over 100 Rubies and then a merchant that pays practically nothing - that's not gonna work for me.
