I have been waiting for four days for a second black squirrel to visit to complete a quest started 5 1/2 days ago. Anyone with any ideas? I have tried superfood, but that still only gets me more greys faster. The devs will only tell the usual - it's luck. If everyone had this sort of luck no one would have completed the quests. I have tried rearranging the garden, used a shroom (but don't have enough jewels for more). Any ideas greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
patience -- that's the only advice we can give
Rearranging the garden won't do anything and neither will a supershroom or superfood. You really haven't been waiting very long considering how rare they are so it's just patience.
Thanks, Nicole and Andrea, but since one came within a day or so of starting and I have seen MANY squirrel gardens with several in a much shorter time, that rare thing seems just another variation of the "it's luck" reason. Rare used to mean about 10% of the time. For me it will be more like 1%. Have had plenty of greys but just the one black. I think the lesson I will take from this is that I will never do a quest needing binos or melanistics - until I absolutely must. And that will be a loooong time coming.
I have noticed that I get some albino/melanistic critters more often than others.
My first ever albino mole took seventy ornery ones before it bothered to show up... And he's still behind, percentage wise ...
I tend to get the albino grey squirrels more than the black squirrels. Good luck, they can be frustrating for sure!
