Those ****ing parasprites!

I never have enough magic shards to make them go away! My whole town is filled with rocks and dirt and trees I don't want. I don't have enough bits to remove them, either.

Need to buy stores then fill the with ponies asap. Cash flow is semi decent and having around 9 stores mean I get a fair amount of most shards. ( RD's shards ATM are the least common for me )

I have plenty of shards, but all the parasprites are the same color I need for magic shards. I NEVER get those.

Yeah, it seems Gameloft made Magic shards incredibly rare for whatever the hell reason...even with the 3 highest level shops, I still get close to none.

From what some have discovered, you can avoid having parasprites spawn by making sure you don't have any open areas that are 2x2 squares.

Yeah, that's what others said. After I get rid of the current parasprites, I'm gonna build Large Ponds all over town and cover up all the 2x2 squares.

Aaaand I can confirm that this DOES work.

Filled up my town with Large Pond, then Small Pond, then filled in any smaller gaps with Wells.

No more parasprite spawns, even after setting the time to 5 days ahead. (and making sure to do it in a way that would normally spawn parasprites)

the magic element is only supposed to appear after the other five have been activated. they wanted to make sure you do the magic one last so that it feels right. (just my guess)

oh, does letting parasprites roam free and not banishing with shards harmful to ponyville in anyway?

Apparently from what I've read, they don't roam. They just don't allow you to build on the area's they cover.

That's not true. I've been finding Magic shards ever since I activated the Laughter stone.
