Least Favorite Quests

-- Blossoms for the Bath: As awesome as Becky is, I usually skip this request. Today I decided to give it a go. A hour of picking flowers and I've gotten one Beautiflower. ONE. Damn it, Becky!

-- Man on the Street (1, 2 or 3): I can't stand Proscuitto and avoid him at all times. Probably doesn't help that I don't like the Zebra Outfit either and that his requests are low Happiness/low Wealth.

-- any quest involving Adrea: I know that her personality is intentionally abrasive. Still ... arrgh. I'm really glad she's my roommate, because not only is she way nicer when she's in your room, but any quest involving her also goes away so you don't have to deal with her whining.

-- any quest involving Hank: This guy is ... something else. "I need my toolbox right now! ... oh, you brought it! Sweet, I'll start working ... tomorrow." Huh, guess you really needed it bad. "You gotta bring me Strawberry Cake." Why? To recover from all that work you're NOT doing? "Take some hair goo to Sammy Thunder, he really needs it." Mmmm. Yeah. Getting right on that. ... tomorrow.

You should try a different set of flower boxes for Blossoms for the Bath. I think Beautiflowers might be less rare on the top right set, since I got 3 of them pretty quickly while looking for a Disco Dahlia.

As for me, I'm still mad at Anton (Herze-en! *shakes fist*) for taking 10 million of my wealth for almost no payoff. I thought it'd be similar to Price of Knowledge. It also sometimes takes an hour or more to catch a Thames Kingfin, so I decided to make Don Paolo my roommate so I only have to fish for gifts. At least he does the cleaning!

Of course, there's really no need to repeat quests (particularly those involving fishing or flower picking) except for the easy high wealth quests

I feel that it's my civic duty to honor every request I see, no matter how questionable or inconvenient it is.

GL, at this point in my game-playing, I've unlocked all possible quests, and really am only playing for the sake of giving presents to friends in the park and getting the Golden Gloves at some point in future. I'm not even focused on high-wealth quests (though I know them when I see them). I'm more concerned with high-Happiness quests since I'm not buying objects except to fulfill requests, and that pretty requires for me to do most of the requests again so that I begin to learn which ones not to let pass by.

S-Mcschmuck, I rarely check the box by the garbage can (usually end up with a bunch of Celestial Loti, or Adorablooms, or Hibiscuseseses). I've found it's better to pick from the four behind the bus stop, if for nothing else, because there are two flowers in there that restore happiness--for some reason bees LOVE to sting me. It took about another hour, but I finally got Becky's durn flowers. :P

You'd gain happiness substantially quicker by focusing on the easy high wealth quests and converting the wealth into happiness (if you wanted to reach a target)

Additional happiness stops being useful once all the quests have been unlocked

But completing Anton's request is needed to unlock Descole.O_O

Descole! I actually didn't even know he was in Little London no more than a week ago. I should've taken a hint from Avogadro (or however it's spelled).

I didn't mention earlier that I also think Mr. Anderson is a tool. Whatever "work" he claims to be doing, he's always in the cafe, he wants to go to the casino with a toupee on his hat thinking it's a DISGUISE, and for whatever reason he doesn't let Katia visit her friend's grave.

I also have to mention Beautiflowers again. You're gonna hate me, (secret agent! *doot-DOO!*) Supersugar (*doot-DOO!*), but I pulled three of them in a row.

He's a bookie, they're totally paranoid. :-D

Ah, the miserable Beautiflower.
I actually have three at present, I found them while looking for something else entirely (either an Alice Flower or a Saint Flower). Now I won't get Blossoms for the Bath as a quest any more for weeks and weeks. :-P
