Cherry Blossom Petals Removed?

38 posts in this topic

Posted

I figured like the Easter event, the vendor would disappear, but the item (eggs/petals) would remain. Not only did the vendor disappear with this event, but also the trees I planted are gone, the seeds I gathered are gone, and most importantly the Cherry Blossom Petals are gone from my warehouse. They had buff value and at the very lease vendor value of 10k... I had hundreds of these petals saved up... Is this a bug???

Mine are gone too. This is quite upsetting at 10k a pop.

The seeds I was saving up for later all disappeared too. I figured we'd get to keep the items like we got to keep the Easter eggs.

Didnt you play KR, RU, JPN? You should have prepared for this by doing 50 hours of research /sarcasm.

Hopefully its just a bug and they werent stealth removed cause that would suck

  • Cherry Blossom Event

    • During this event players will be able to obtain Cherry Blossom Seeds by gathering from the following resources with their bare hands; Dry Thicket, Wild Herb, and Desert Herb.

      • Unwithering Cherry Blossom Petals give the following 30 minute buff when consumed:  Attack/Movement/Cast Speed +1, Critical Hit +1, HP & MP +30.

    • Cherry Blossom Seeds can be cultivated in a garden, although they are a bit larger than most plants and require 2 grids of space to grow.  Once the Cherry Blossom Tree is fully grown you will be able to harvest Unwithering Cherry Blossom Petals.

    • Unwithering Cherry Blossom Petals can be exchanged at seed vendors found in Heidel and Calpheon.

    • Exchange 10 for a Cherry Blossom Pot which gives 20 interior points when placed in your home.

    • Exchange 30 for a cosmetic accessory, Cherry Blossom Earring.

  • Cherry Blossom Seeds and Unwithering Cherry Blossom Petals will disappear after the event has ended.

  • Cherry Blossom Seeds and Unwithering Cherry Blossom Petals can be sold for 10,000 silver to NPCs.

  • This event ends May 4th.

 

Its announced in the event section, that everything will be removed after the event. 3rd row from below.

Guys, they specifically stated in the initial announcement post that the petals would disappear after the event has ended. Sorry you stockpiled, but they made it very clear at the beginning of the event. Moving forward, I would read the announcement posts a bit more carefully.

Probably to prevent stockpiling

Interesting, I guess they do get you with the kinda fine print.

Must admit, I fell for it as well.  After the Easter event, during which everything stayed available for quite some time even though the event ended, I had been gathering seeds while I could during the event to use as soon as I could (needed to rack up CP for fence but was managing priorities thinking this would work like easter event).  I was hoping for a potted plant for my house.

Not the end of the world, but I do wish they were consistent in how they run events going forward.  It's easier for them to have one policy than for every customer to individually scour every fun event announcement like it's a mortgage contract.

On the bright side, no more cherry seeds = reclaimed inventory space :)  Now who's putting their potted plant on the market so that I may give you my money? ;)

@Shinyou what's wrong with stockpiling?  Just a matter of resource and time management based on how they seemed to be operating events.  Don't see why this should be a problem for them except, maybe, database limitations but if this event pushed those limits for them, they're in trouble.

Edit: cleared out spaces in quote.

Yeah I don't see the harm in keeping them... The consistency is what got me. At least if they were going to remove them they could have gave us the vendor value for the item... had a few hundred worth saved up for the buffs... the millions of silver would have been nice.

Yes, I agree with you that some consistency would be nice. Or, if they are going to do something different such as in this case, they should have an extra announcement a week before the event ends to remind people that they should do something with their petals before the week is up.

Ouch. I got on board the cherry farm train late but saved up a good number of seeds and petals.

To think I could have had a lovely set of earrings and a few million silver for my Wizard instead.

<sad face>

I didn't even see the announcement of the event itself, only learned about it on Dulfy lol.

I find this post  offensive, and is completely unwarranted. Reported and everyone else should do the same.

As it was said this was inconsistency, but will be more cautious of future events. Some people don't read every bit of patch notes and just like to jump in game after a day of work.

Yeah that was pretty much obvious to everyone except Mr. D-bag there.

Honestly why didn't they just add an expiration to the item just like they do scrolls? That would have made a ton of sense.

Yeah the buff from petals was shared with food so I really don't see why it hurt to have them.

I blame Dulfy for not mentioning this. I read all the patch notes but never even saw a posting for the event itself. (Still don't even know what it's for)

So youre blaming another player for not doing your work of research? Really nice.

Its not her responsibilty, its yours. She just does guides, and she does it good. And I appreciate her work.

 

And if its true, that you have read all the patch notes, you must have seen this:

I guess it makes sense though as having stacks of them to help with leveling could be too much of an advantage.

Quit with the white knighting. You missed the angle of my post. I don't really care nor do I blame Dulfy (it was sarcasm). I only discovered the event from Dulfy's post so my information was limited to that. I found out about the cherry blossom even AFTER I did the easter egg event (Which I did read in the patch notes)

I glossed over the event because it was the first major patch so I read the actual patch changes and stuff and events in games like these rarely have interest to me. I just had no idea they'd remove the stuff, it makes no sense to why those were treated different than the Eggs (I know people who have close to 1000 life eggs saved for a rainy day) but yes it is clearly in the patch notes.

Once again, I don't really care, I'm not complaining but the move is rather odd to me as the items are not very powerful or useful.

 

That'll learn you for trusting a 3rd party website =P

Is there where I'm supposed to demand compensation?
