    You can ask your friend. He may have borrowed those from other people too. Smile

    Lover's Ikebana

    Otherwise, spend the diamonds on the cans.


    How can I do the Lover's Ikebana quest so quickly?? I have only one, despite having finished some of Takeshi's quests.

    Just ask a lot of friends who have ikebanas to borrow them, informing them that they should get it back within a day (make sure you can deliver!).

    Players with more than 1 are more likely to lend you one.

    In the last few days I have noticed a pretty large increase in oil cans dropping. I think I got 15 in just a few days this week.

    I noticed the same thing! I didn't get 15, but I did get 3, which is almost the same amount I found in the months before that.

    I was getting oil cans about every three to fours rooms I went in, but since this morning when I got the 300 can quest, I haven't been getting any >.<

    This is an abomination of a quest. Don't waste your time. Use the Synthesizer, get the diamonds you need, buy the oil canisters.

    Hey don't forget the one battery that you also get. Finished the quest this afternoon. It's completion leads to a quest requiring a visit to the hallway and then the quest to open the lab.

    Actually this quest is a part of a quests chain wich lead us to opening the UFO,so maybe in some way 270 diamonds wotrh it...but still it`s not right that if you have this quest oil cans din`t drop out,ridiculous

    When I had this quest, I used a Turtle of Luck and after 6 hours and a ton of rooms, I only got 1, yes that's 1 oil can. I agree with Admin, just buy them. I don't think it is possible to complete this quest without purchasing the cans.

    Lucky me. I just got this quest a few days ago. Twisted Evil I have already finished the Neptune and Emerald. I thought I was going to luck out and get to skip this one. Nope, Not that lucky!!!

    Yes indeed, Admin, we're still suffering from this quest!
    Although the drop rate has improved after the latest update, but it's not impressive at all! I have this quest for almost 2 weeks now! I'm not willing to budge and use diamonds but.....I'm going no way No

    So I can wait a couple of more days before having to do this horrible robot quest. Can't believe how low the drop rate for those oil cans is. I've got a gazillion runestones, but those cans just cant seem to be found.

    I have Ikebanas if you still need them..e14056

    So true! I've had this quest for about 2 months. I've turtled, used magnets, cornucopia, you name it...I've gotten enough cans to banish 7 vacuum robots. I'm still in denial about using diamonds to buy the oil cans...and I'm distracted enough by monster quests right now. But I imagine I'll have to cave in at some point. The ROI on this quest is really bad. :-(

    Oil cans done

    Post  Bovver on Sat Sep 15, 2012 2:11 am

    I am sure I can't be the only one but I completed the oil can quests without using diamonds. I noticed that after banishing phenomena from the lower rooms (living room, bedroom, kitchen) there is an oil can in the drop list when the curse is left behind. Providing you use the turtle you always get a can and occasionally 2 when searching the room with the curse. It doesn't work after the UFO but it works with the other phenomena. It took about 3 weeks in total. I had no choice because access to things like FB is limited in my country and I know nothing about code synthesiser. Currently have only the island quests to finish Smile

    You're not the only one. I'm working on the quest, too, and I refuse to use diamonds. I don't care of the quest grows mold before I get it done. I'll eventually get it done, one slow oil drop at a time, until it's all done. I've banished 5 vacuum robots so far. I figure if I could banish 5 without diamonds, I can banish 5 more. I hear it gets much worse, but that's fine. The quests can just sit there until I get them done. I'm in no hurry!

    If you get a phenomena in African room, hall or Japanese garden then leave it there. Let other phenomena appear in the lower rooms. They come quite quickly especially if you leave one or two curses in the higher rooms as well. Phenomena don't appear in rooms with curses and they don't appear at all if you have 7 or more phenomena+curses so keep good count? Each time a phenomena appears in the lower rooms you can banish it normally and then deal with the curse. As you enter the cursed room check the drop list and the oil can will be there. Use a turtle to be sure and the whole thing is much faster if you use a golden rose+Phoenix. My record was 38 cans in 1 day. Good luck. By the way there are 3 of these oil can quests...........
