I’m so confused as to what’s happening right now in terms of the cookies and rabbitsunes. I really appreciate the event either way and I’m sure there will be plenty of nice people who will breed and gift rabbitsunes anyway. Even if not now I know I LOT of people that are still active and the kindest people in the world who once not busy will likely breed and give them away.

There’s no official conversion. Just because the odds suck doesn’t mean that it’s official, or even that all of the odds are bad for everyone. I don’t mean to be rude but at the end of the day it’s all just digital creatures and even though we can all agree we love them, it’s no big deal if we don’t get them right away or even SB ones.

I like to joke about the gold spent, but it’s really funny to watch and everything but In my opinion it’s not huge or necessary. I just really appreciate the hard work everyone has spent on making the events and creatures I don’t want them to just see all this flame and feel bad.

Yeah I agree... 600 drinks for 10 cookies seems a bit odd. I've had 300 drinks and I've gotten 30. If some people really are getting only 10 cookies per 600 drinks, then wow, I feel so bad for them, but I think it's honestly based on luck more than anything.

Thanks SO much for the Christmas gifts!

I've had 828 drinks and gotten 14 carrot cookies. At first I was kind of upset because I spent a ton of gold on those drinks, but now I've decided to be patient and wait for the MS staff to reveal whatever's next. I trust them. <3

I know that right now we all have concerns about the carrot cookies drop rate. But remember they told us they are permanent creatures, and they said that we don't need to rely on Remy for getting cookies. So I think those are hints that we should all calm down and be patient in the coming days.

I am betting that either on X-mas day the rabbitsunes will be added to the stream, or maybe the Snowflake that we got is an item that will give us a special ability to gain cookies on eggs/hatchlings that are growing or maybe they will introduce a new shop that will sell baked goods aka cookies and we can buy them, similar to the black market (or heck maybe from the black market! or inside it's bags? or maybe from the Solstice Caravan if it returns this year...)

In any case, we still need to speculate, but in a more positive light.

Please be kind with any feedback that we give to the staff/Rosehill, remember they give us these events for fun and they really don't have to, and we don't want to spoil any potential good things from happening.

That's all I wanted to say.

Keep enjoying the event everyone! :wave: <3


1. Donis can only breed via real-world money.
2. No everyone will buy the midmonth, or buy shards to breed it.

And yet, the cookie drop rate seems to have been calibrated based on the current rate of Shards to Gold conversions.

Remember Dana... it's 120 gold per drink and that the average seems to be 600 for 10 cookies that's 72,000 gold.

I thought there were tax ramifications that made it impossible to have donis and regular creatures compatible or an official gold to shard conversion rate....

But you don't need shards to crossbreed. You just won't get a doni out of it, only the normal variant. For example, you can breed Emerald and Cobalt Wyverns without shards just fine, but you won't get a Cobalt egg from that.

And it's not like you HAVE to breed them with the midmonth. You can just breed them among each other, too.

I don't see the problem with an extra breed option when it doesn't take away any of the normal things? I mean, if there was some kind of hybrid between the two that could only be obtained by breeding an event rabbit with a doni one, I would understand, but as it is it's literally the same breeding mechanic as with every other event creature, only the added option to breed it with this month's 2-shard, too.

What's so bad about that?

As for the average, Rosehill said the drop rate was (not counting luck) roughly every 6th cookie. That makes 60 drinks for 10 cookies, not 600. Everyone seems to be having bad luck with it, yes, but not 72k-for-10-cookies bad.

... Hopefully. Because that would hurt. :lol:

Some might have meant the 10/600 as 10 rabbitsune or new cookies and not counting the others
But Tyriagris has it down, it doesn't cost to breed with a doni, just an extra option

Still, I'll wait and see

Yes, you get the cookie randomly. I know I got about four carrot cookies for about 196, but I did get 22 cookies in total.

I've had 24 drinks, and I've only gotten two cookies. So that's 1/12 for me. Both of them were the old ones unfortunately. I, also, went broke because of the last black market. So I don't have enough gold to keep going especially if we get shop creatures.

you can get all the morphs from the arkenian kitsunes (i think the regular ones only give the white tipped morph? but i don't have confirmation on that)
clicks appreciated!
