This morning, Xia and I decided to do some more wild hunting, this time on the Leaf Isles. They were devoid of other players, and it had been a long time since we'd visited them, so they seemed like the best choice. We were hopeful we'd have better luck than Felicity and Gem had had the night before and were eager to find some cute wild ponies.
Well, even though we thoroughly searched all of the Leaf Isles (with the exception of the dreaded flower maze - someone had clearly been in it recently anyway) we didn't find many ponies - an underwhelming total of three. All three of them were similar in color too: brown with darker manes and tails.
She sure is cute and has a great personality! Too bad her stats only add up to +50. It would've been fun to add a little Gottie to the herd.
A mediocre yet stuck up Exmoor. You've got nothing on Dasani or Vita, missy! Hopefully you find an adoring owner on the foreign isles.
A cute yet underwhelming Dartmoor. A social gadfly is a person (or in this case a pony) who upsets the status quo. I'm not sure our herd is ready for that, lol. He'll be auctioned to a foreign bidder too.
While we didn't end up finding any amazing ponies, I'd still call our trip a worthwhile use of our HI2 time. Nobody else had visited Stem Isle or the trio of little isles off of it for quite some time, and whoever had been to Petal, Bulb, and Flower before us hadn't been very thorough.
We harvested tons of leaf piles,
lots of ores,
and plenty of fairy rings too.
In addition, we found one awkwardly-placed pot of gold. It contained $92k!
But most impressive of all, we dug up exactly 20 buried pirate treasures from the Leaf Isle beaches!
In order, they were:
That adds up to $264k total! Not bad, right?
