    Default Budgie Week Guide

    Hey guys, thought I'd put a fairly swift end to all these budgie week questions by making a fairly quick and straightforward guide, I've done a video guide which covers it all in a lot more detail and some quick written pointers for those of you that don't like watching videos!



    Link to guide on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eiacw...ature=youtu.be

    Quick pointers:
    • 3 Daily quests - Each awards 10x[Bird Seed] (Soulbound)
    • Event lasts for 6-7 days, this means a maximum of either 180 or 210x [Bird Seed]
    • 2 Budgie mounts available, one from lock boxes and one from 850x [Bird Seed]
    • You won't be guarenteed to get a Budgie Amount without spending credits
    • First day you do all three of the Budgie races you get a free [Limited Edition: Budgie Trove] which for the 5-10 minutes it takes you is well worth it
    • Unless you want to spend credits/IRL money, there is no point doing the dailys more than once

    Where are the dailys located?
    • Cape Jule daily is located just outside Tulan
    • Kingdom of Pelladane daily is located just outside Tuldio Retreat
    • Sanctum daily (Guardians only) is located just outside Sanctum
    • Meridian daily (Defiant only) is located just outside Meridian

    With patron discount the troves cost 630 credits

    Without patron discount the troves cost 700 credits

    Each trove drops 5-10 seeds, so let's average that out at a generous 8.

    Let's say you do all the dailys all week long so you have 210 credits.

    850- 210 = 640

    640 / 8 = 80

    So in theory you'd need at least 80 troves.

    630 x 80 = 50,400 credits. Which is roughly 200 or $300 to get the mount from seeds at this point in time.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Update from Daglar from Reddit:

    As this is a Promo event - we'll be running it again in the future.

    I'd suggest holding onto your bird seed.

    We also specifically called it a promo event based on player feedback from mech week - and we'll be converting mech week over to use this new UI / branding in the future as well.

    Hmmmm if you can't get the seed in a week seems like something they overlooked. Perhaps we could get a dev to respond.

    Is Bird Seed Soulbound? Or Bound to Account? If B2A, then you can do the dailies on alts to get enough Bird Seed to purchse the mount. However, Trion seems to be doing away with that loophole for most Seasonal Events.

    Will Bird Seed drop from anything else, like Rifts? Or some minigames?

    Unfortunately it's some measly amount like 5,000 experience.

    Unfortunately they are soulbound and as far as I am aware the dailies and lockboxes are the only way to obtain them at this current point in time.

    Basically these quests are for those who are willing to waste $300 in the hopes of obtaining enough birdseed or the actual mount from lock-boxes.

    Really, though, I thank you to those who are willing to spend that much on a vanity item. You are paying for me to play Rift for free (well technically I did subscribe for like 6-8 months and plan on subscribing again eventually).

    Honestly though, I think Trion would make a lot more money if they just released these mounts as limited time mounts and sold them for credits instead of the Asian cash-grab lock-box thing they're doing.

    You can get some gear from the AH but its super expensive. Guilmates would probably be best and of course cheaper. I have 484 hit and 425 toughness but I dont play the toon anymore. Been about 2 months since I played on her. I would probably be tier 2 ready by now lol

    Saw it on reddit already - forgot to say thanks. The only real take-away for me was the 1 daily for the box - but the video was great too. Also saw your Warden guide and as I am learning that now, found it to be very helpful. I've been doing so many things wrong following Ahov's guide (incorrectly - not because of the guide, just that it's harder to get it without a vid).

    Complain all you want, but at least they aren't gating the actual game.

    Imagine if, in order to raid, you'd need to buy a weekly pass or something. How stupid would that be!? lol
