    Ahh . . So that's the reason I was given 10 emeralds and black pearls when I opened the game today. Already done.

    I just need one more rope from Beth's Cruiser and I'm done. Last voyage she only had pearls so hoping for better luck with next cargo.

    Tony's wish is a ruby wish, right? So in essence you have to buy black pearls with real cash.

    Had I not read this thread I would have never known this quest came and went. Tony been so happy since I granted his wish a couple of days ago. I enjoyed upgrading a black pearl merchant

    Yes but you need to have purchased the Cart Maker merchant to unlock the wish.

    Tonys wish is just one of eight in the wish book. I only have 7 available because I am yet to buy Jacobs Chicken Farm (its rubies and not as good a rate of return as others)

    So "driven to success" is a bonus really , for completing one of the wishes.

    Just got this quest. 9 days to complete. Got this the moment my Cart Maker finished building and one requirement to completing is collecting from the merchant 10 times. I don't have early collection. It didn't count the first collection after it was built. 24 hours between collecting. That means that unless I spend rubies to collect early from my merchant, I will run out of time to complete this quest on time. I don't mind spending rubies to get things but why make me spend them to rush build times, etc, just so that I can finish the quest in time.

    Hmmm...
    When I purchased the Tuna Merchant and got Jonah's Wish, it never triggered the associated quest.
    I wonder if that was a glitch and/or if they've brought quests back again. I sure wouldn't mind the 5 black pearl reward!

    That doesn't sound right - I mean, PG does like to mess with our heads, but they usually don't intentionally make things impossible. Perhaps you should put in a ticket explaining precisely what's wrong, and reinforce w/ a PM to PGJohn (include your ticket number to make things easier for him). You probably won't get response until Monday afternoon California time ... But that should allow enough time for them to help you

    It wouldn't be impossible if I had early collection. Anyways, I would rush the production once so that I could fit it in time wise but I'm not likely to complete the rest of the steps anyways. I also have to get 10 ropes from Beth's cruiser within that 9 days and I also have to upgrade the cart maker to tier 5. To be allowed to upgrade I have to level up at least 2 more times before I'd even be able to upgrade my cart maker, provided I can even collect enough sapphires in the next 9 days to be able to upgrade...... But I'm going to try because I see how important black pearls are later on.

    Hiya all

    Just a query, if you do Tony's wish now, so you still get the 10 emeralds and five black pearls? Or was that limited to "Driven to Success?" (She asks with naive optimism)

    Have a goodie

    This is another example of a quest configured back when everyone had early collection & is now too hard for new players. Put in a request to PG to change the parameters. It is best to have huge stockpiles of sapphires, coins, and rubies saved up before beginning these quests. Then you can build quickly, change levels, etc. You can clear land ahead of time, leave the trees, then do quick chopping later to advance levels!

    I wasn't aware that purchasing the merchant would trigger that quest. I will be more careful in the future, like before I buy the tuna merchant... just in case.

    When I purchased the tuna merchant (about a month ago, I think?) it didn't trigger a quest. It did open Jonah's Wish so I was able to do that, but no option to get the extra bonus of a quest along with it. There was someone else who had posted in the same time frame that had the same experience. I don't know if that was temporary or not, though.

    I think that was me. I didn't get quest with the wish. I would love to know if they are doing quests with wishes again.
