    Golden Horseshoes

    Post  Admin on Thu Mar 08, 2012 8:57 pm

    Everyone hates getting horseshoes.

    I do too.

    How does one get Golden Horseshoes besides buying them with diamonds?

    Hand of Midas (an artifact) gives you 30 golden horseshoes (and +50% coins when exploring rooms for 6 hrs).

    BTW, I come across with a quest that ask for 30 golden horseshoes. It make some rooms containing the golden horseshoes too. Not easy to find them out. Anyway I'd rather keep the quest unfinished. Wink

    I, too, have that quest. It's been on my list for 3 days, yet not a single room has dropped any golden horseshoes for me. I'm using my Faithful Heart and Crystal Heart now - so I've been searching a lot of rooms the past few days...

    I have two quests for horseshoes that I've had for at least two weeks. I use the horseshoes I find to banish gypsies so I don't know when I'll complete them! Has anyone here finished them? Do you get to keep the horseshoes or are they taken away?

    My understanding is this:

    When you get the quest, any horseshoes you already have is counted towards the requirement. Any horseshoes you collect is added to the required amount. Any horseshoes you use to banish gypsies are taken away from your inventory, but not deducted from the amount you need to complete the quest.

    You're right in all but one aspect. If you use horseshoes before the quest is finished it is deducted from your quest total. In one of the quests you need horseshoes and somethng else. Once you get all the horseshoes and start collecting the other item you can use the horseshoes without them being deducted from your quest.

    I have the horseshoe quests too, and they are a pain in the butt. The quest for bronze and silver horseshoes says that the horseshoes will be removed from inventory once completed. So, you do need to find them and NOT use them to banish gypsies in order to complete it.

    I also have the same question as someone above--is it better to use the ones you find to banish gypsies or should I be saving them to get this quest off my page? I think I've had the 2 horseshoe quests for at least 2 weeks too. They never seem to drop.

    When the quest has multiple items to collect such as the bronze and silver horseshoes, you can collect all of one and get a check mark next to that item. You can use that item before collecting all of the other item and that way you only lose the final item collected. So for the horseshoes, if you collect all the silver, and get that portion of the quest checked off, you can spend the silver horseshoes. Once you collect the bronze horseshoes, only the bronze will be taken (and any silver you still have remaining).

    Oh, OK I understand what you mean now. You have to get the check mark first! I obviously missed that part because I've never even gotten more than 3 horseshoes at a time... Thanks for the clarification.

    FYI on horseshoe quests....... The one you need 40 bronze and 10,000 coins takes the 40 horseshoes when you are done. Spent 30 diamonds on those suckers (had thanks to synthesizer) because I thought I would be able to use 10 of them to banish gypsy. Then they went poof! FAIL!!

    I finished the horseshoe quests today. Thanks to all the info here, I was able to save a lot of diamonds! I bought 30 silver horseshoes (because I wasn't finding any in the rooms) and then spent them all banishing gypsies. Then I went to the store and bought 40 copper horseshoes. The 2 quests were completed, and I only lost 40 copper horseshoes as opposed to 70 copper and 30 silver. Banishing all the gypsies helped me complete the next couple of quests too!

    Okay, I'm a little confused here. I have both horseshoe quests, too. If I'm reading this right, I should complete the silver horseshoes first? And that once you get that checkmark, you can start using them to banish gypsies and won't lose your count? You'll still have the 30 horseshoes?

    Does this strategy work with other things, too? I have an oil can/vacuum robot quest, too. I'm one oil can away from getting the 5 that I need. Once I get 5 oil cans and get the checkmark, I can start banishing vacuum robots without losing any oil cans?

    Trekker, when I was doing that quest, I did meet the oil canisters requirement first. Then I started banishing robots. The oil canisters requirement was still met even when I had no more to use.

    Ah, thanks, that makes more sense, though I would rather the supply became unlimited after you got the checkmark. Wishful thinking on my part. Wink
