    Ring in the new year (LTQ 1/6 ruby based)

    New ruby based LTQ (3 DAYS) SPOILERS

    Step 1

    First of all, we need some sort of attraction to draw people here for our New Year's Eve party

    1. Clear out the pirates: defeat 4 (this step can be skipped for 20 rubies)
    2. build the spa (14 rubies) (6 hours to build) (COLLECT 118,656 coins every 8 hours)
    3. send party invites! collect from 25 homes

    Reward: 10 rubies, 2009 coins

    Step 2

    People are streaming in for our spa and party, but where are we going to keep them all?

    1. Upgrade the spa for more appointments
    2. Build the new year hotel for more housing (9 rubies, 2 hours to build) (this is a merchant size house)
    3. Send Philip on 2 short voyages to find food. (This can be skipped for 15 rubies)

    Reward: 250 pearls, 2010 coins

    Step 3

    The new year is almost upon us! We better find a way to let people know..

    1. build the New Year's Ball to alert people (7 rubies, 5 hours to build) (This is the smallest size decoration)
    2. Do 3 mermaid searches to remind them (any type of search)
    3. Build an Ice Cannon to sound a reminder (10 snowballs, 15 rubies, 1 basic cannon) (5 seconds to craft)

    Reward: 15 sapphires, 2011 Coins

    Step 4

    Well that cannon fire certainly got people prepared for a huge event...so you better deliver!

    1. Find one canvas to make the best outfit. (This can be skipped for 10 rubies)
    2. Get 200 pearls for top-notch jewels ( this can be skipped for 10 rubies)
    3. Craft cash for pearls for spending money (500 pearls, 1 coin, 10 wood) takes 4, 6 or 8 hours to craft depending on your game.

    Reward: 5 emeralds, 2012 coins

    Step 5

    Yes, you sure do look nice now, but I meant you need to have the PARTY ready!

    1. Collect 3 times from the sugar mill for sweets. ( this can be skipped for 15 rubies)
    2. Build the champagne maker for proper drinks (29 rubies, 5 hours to build) (collect 171,390 coins every 8 hours )
    3. Collect 2 times from the fish pond for the meal ( this can be skipped for 10 rubies)

    Reward: 2 black pearls, 2013 coins

    Step 6

    Hurry! Hurry! We've got just a few hours before the New Year comes!

    1. Do a mermaid search for their songs (This can be any type of search)
    2. Get the New Year Party house to PARTY! (12 rubies, 2 hours to build) (This is a merchant sized house)

    Reward: Party Ship (8 hours to build)

    Thanks gohanie. You're on the ball bright and early! As usual!
    Thanks very much for all the great info.
    Quite a few rubies needed for this one. (And much valuable sought after land!!!)
    Any approximate costs for low tier voyages with the party boat please?
    I was promising to stay away from quests to place my much needed coin merchants but I'm tempted!(as usual)

    I didnt quite notice the cost, but at tier 10, a 24 hours voyage costed me 3,6 ml or around for sure! But it brought me back 1, 2 emeralds (sometimes with 1 extra serum as well)

    Too many rubies for a naff ship IMO. Will give this 1 a miss I think.
    I love PG if I get the quest and its not a ruby one.

    So what's the total cost to rubies and what's the total ROI of rubies?

    I'm just hoping that this ruby quest means that we won't be getting another quest for a couple of days, so that I can finally get "Draw a Crowd" done. With all of the timed steps, I'd held off on it due to the constant crashes I was having (wasn't worth the added stress). Once those went away I didn't want to attempt it simultaneously with another LTQ. Hopefully this will be the time I need.

    I have rubies right now, but am thinking of doing the Tuna Merchant (and associated wish) next.

    I can't get past step 2
    Where is no "new year hotal" in my house list.

    PG please fix his before the event ends

    Did you tap on the arrow in the quest listing? It should take you right there (and yes, quite a glitch if it doesn't)?

    A naff ship and 2 BPs. The latter makes it almost tempting, as the return from those is far more than from any LTQ merchant. I should probably take a break from LTQs though, and the cost of this (and the fact I'd be starting very late - won't have the land to place the spa until 24 hours in) makes this very easy to miss.

    It appears that the New Year's Hotel has a fireworks feature with it. They are going off in my cove - moving all around where the Hotel is. Fun addition, PG!

    but the real question is, will the party ship have a small chance to bring Black Pearl as well, next to its Emeralds

    Yes, I have been tapping the arrow in the quest list.
    It brings me to the House list, but where is no hotal where
    Maybe it is the same problem as the Burn fire in another x-mas quest - maybe I have already built it in another TLQ and it just not regitrate it for this quest

    Was only going to do first step for merchant ,but the fireworks with the hotel sucked me in. They are great. I will proceed with the quest but not bust my butt to get done!

    You probably already did this but look at the top of the house list to see if you already unlocked it earlier and never placed it. Also, see if you can find it in your cove. You may have already placed it. Maybe someone can post a picture for you.

    I think that I placed a hotal in a earlier TLQ.

    Upset again! I have sent Phillip out and he came back with the basic cannon but it did not go towards the ice cannon that I need to craft to complete the step. This is not fair since I waited for this voyage to complete and got what was needed. What is going on, I don't understand. My time is running out to finish this quest
