      Prickly bear cactus nerfed -- what now?

      Years ago I used to grow prickly bear cactus plants for mega snacks, but that no longer seems very practical. They don't reliably drop good snacks any more and worse yet no longer drop enough seeds to replace themselves either. Are their any other non-crown seeds good for high rank pet snacks? Last time I farmed couch potatoes in Grizzleheim I wanted to slit my wrists, I was only getting 1 seed every 50-100 fights.

      White tiger lilies and maltese tiger lilies guarantee a mega snack at elder, and the white ones might even give amber. Though neither of them reseed.

      Daily Assignments, and several castle free-item-givers can provide you with Crown Seeds if you visit them via Castle Tours for a while. They're not guaranteed by any stretch, but if you get in the habit of visiting, you'll eventually get a few.

      Growing Boom Shrooms and other plants for Ultra seeds can also eventually yield some Rank 8 snacks.

      Re: Prickly bear cactus nerfed -- what now?

      I used to do gardening with Prickly bear cactus wayyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the day before I got 64 Couch Potatoes, pretty upsetting tht it's no longer a viable option to at least get Crab Apples and Sun Fruit. While Ultra Seeds are definitely a good alternative, there's not as accessible as Prickly bear cactus, which are purchasable. I'm pretty the most viable option until you get enough of the Deadly Helephant Ears, Evil Magma Peas, or Couch Potatoes, isn't gardening at all but instead doing speedy Mirror Lake runs for Pixie Sticks. Remember 16 seeds is enough to get a 4x4 small plot going (which can fit in a medium sized ring 8 energy for each need)

      The only problem with these is that it's going to take up a lot of energy trying to tend and they're fairly rare even in the bazaar. It's more accessible than Ultra Seeds but since they don't reseed, getting them will take a tumultuous effort...

      Re: Prickly bear cactus nerfed -- what now?

      So is there some data or patch notes to go along with this or is it just a feeling?

      Also couch potatoes are still 100% worth it. Trust me.

      KingsIsle quietly nerfed UKP and Halfang, so I wouldn't be surprised if this is yet another underhanded attempt at encouraging Players to purchase Crown Shop seeds.

      I think it was Empyrea where it naturally dropped couch potatoes several times just by questing through there, they're worth it I promise.

      Nerfed the PvP crown shop seeds, like sunions, indirectly due to the overall nerf to TC cards. Honestly, It's not clear to me where this is all going to end up even for all the PvE questers & grinders.
