Hello. Golems are at 9-7-7. I've unlocked all the decorations, and I'm working on collecting Shards for the base and Cookies for all the rest.

I added up how many of each cookie you need to get all the stuff, and this is what the number is:
70 Toboggan
85 Ornament
90 Nutcracker
140 Sugar

So that gives people an idea of what decoration they need to spend more time with.

I started charging my Golem trap a bit...I think they said it takes 500 hunts to get fully charged? I noticed I was missing a few mice with GPP/PP armed so I think I'll stick to charging while I'm using SB.

I've been sending two Golems to Prickly Planes/Canterra Quarry exclusively...with Exceptional Loot, I'm getting Stones/Embers with every Golem; sometimes multiples. Since I have a long term goal of Gold crowning QQ, I figure this will come in handy, lol. Plus plenty of Flamin' leaves so I can also get more drops during CNY.

My third Golem has been mainly going to MoPi for the FBF, but I'll switch it up for FRift, BWrift and Zokor sometimes.

I've found that two tournaments a day + nice maps = a constant stream of three golems going at all times. :D And I've had so much extra animated snow that I've been able to buy a few bells. The only downside to the tournaments is the New Years Eve mice aren't worth any points. That should be fixed with the MEGA tournaments starting tomorrow.

My golems are 10-11-11.

I've got everything except the 2019 Lucky Codex where I'm 28/90 cookies (almost a third of the way there). Still a week and a half to go. Plenty of time. :)

ETA: Forgot the 2019 Base, though I don't care too much about that. If I don't get it, no big deal, much more interested in the codex.

I'm working on the codex. Finally got all of the pieces of the trap and the base. Got the theme and the 2019 base. Working on the codex. Are the golem charms worth it?

No clue, Kat. They definitely help speed up the charging process, but I don't know how possible it is to get a TON from the GWH. I know you can buy them with King's Credits after the event so that's something.

12-11-11 here...got all the stuff. Just working on sending out as many Golems as I can. I've got a VERY healthy pile of QC supplies; I've had one Golem out to CQ/PP at all times, and the third Golem has been bouncing around QR, FRift, and MoPi mainly with a few visits to other locals to help balance out or boost some loot I already had. For instance, I had a ton of Lunaria petals but no Plumpearl, so two Golems to the Lost City has netted me a very nice pile of Lunaria cheese. I low-key want to work towards more Shattering Charms (with the far-off goal of bronzing the LG mega-bosses), so being able to get more essences definitely helps.

As far as QC goes...I have a long-term goal of getting the theme, which requires 500 QQ's. I'm planning to take all the Flamin' I've gotten during this event and convert it into Embers/Stones during CNY, which, once added to all the supplies I got during this event, will take a big chunk out of the number needed. Again, it's a VERY long-term goal, but hunting the bosses ain't bad for points or gold, so I'm ok with that, lol.

I've also been amassing a really nice pile of FRift stuff as that is a great place for gold/points and I'd like to get to Elder this year. 61% currently so with some steady work it shouldn't be too far off!

I managed to get all the traps/skins and bases without much trouble.

Besides those, my goals for the 2018 GWH have been to gather materials (including ingredients for cheese) for getting crowns on several mice:

Queso Canyon: - silver Queen Quesada (but not gold, 21 catches so far), the 2 mini-bosses (I've caught 60 Inferna and 58 Nachous), and all the lesser mice in Cantera Quarry (2 silvers already, and 61-99 catches on the others)

Fungal Cavern: - bronze the Diamondhide (6 catches so far)

Moussu Picchu : - get more cheeses to use there - I've silvered Ful'Mina months ago, but I would like to bronze the Dragoon (3 catches so far). And catch even more Ful'Minas.

Fiery Warpath and Fort Rox: - get enough Portal Projectors to bronze the Artillery Commander (2 catches so far) and the Heart of the Meteor (1 catch so far)

GWH: - silver as many GWH event mice as possible (around 20 were unsilvered before the event)

Results as of 12 Jan 2019:

Queso Canyon : - got Bland Queso and Spice Leaves, and crafted as much cheese as possible, leaving less than 10 leaves of each kind.
I now have 33 558 Bland, 115 Mild, 117 Medium, 181 Hot, 66 Flamin', and 31 Wildfire. (Anyone interested in Treasure Maps?)

Fungal Cavern: - got lots of Minerals and a few Diamonds (and a whole lot of Gemstones, which will be useful later). I now have 5 pieces of Diamond cheese, which will not be enough for 4 catches of the Diamondhide (not when the two other mice may be attracted by this cheese and gobble it up).

Moussu Picchu: - got both Arcanevines and Shadowvines and actual Dragonvine cheese. There's no telling what it will take to bronze the Dragoon, though.

Fiery Warpath and Fort Rox: - Golems have collected a Warpath Portal Core and a Console, and also Tower Mana, Dragonbane Charms and other items that have been worth selling. (I even had a fair amount of gold at the beginning of the event.)
Then I've sold some trap skins - some old ones and some that I've bought with Advent Chocolate or dollars - so I've bought more cores and consoles of both types.
I'm around 10 mil gold at the moment. I'm able to bronze the Artillery Commander, and I only need 2 more portals to bronze the Heart of the Meteor (but I need to farm a few hundred Dawn Dust first).

GWH: - Most of my GWH event mice without silver were of the Winter Sports kind. I decorated with Sports and got several of them, and only have 10 left to silver now (including the two new ones). A good way to target specific mice.

So it's been quite a successful event :-)

I wish I had kept as close track of my loot as you had Varna. I was telling Kat I wish the system published all of the loot obtained from the golems during the event. That'd be really interesting to see.

All I know is that I have 31 Wildfire Queso and 84 Flamin Queso. I haven't worked backwards from there, but I think I'm in pretty good shape for the egg hunt. :P ;)

Probably the single best drop I got was an Enigmatic Core from Zokor. I'll need to see if any of my friends still need this trap and if not, I'll sell it.

Just sent out my very last golem. I have a ton of cheese and charms set aside for next year. It was a very good event.

Not really close track of my loot - I also would find it interesting to see published what I had actually got. My Queso numbers are what I actually had on 12 January, not the numbers of leaves and Bland cheese that I've crafted them from.
Even with the silvering I intend to do, there is likely to be Queso left over for the egg hunt :)

No Enigmatic Core for me, but then I've hardly sent any golems to Zokor. I got the trap last year some time.

I've done quite a bit of silvering the event mice, I guess around ten silvers? They have taken quite a bit of event cheese that I'll probably miss next year, but I'll get a little more from now and until the event ends. Hopefully around a hundred, although I doubt it.

I'll see tomorrow how far I've got with the golems, but now there is one more week to send them out (with only the Sculptor left as the only event mouse). So I can still get a few more thousand Bland Queso.

I've got about four thousand snowball charms, one or two thousand are from this event. They are not as useful as some of the other charms, though. But I've farmed Winter charms over the last couple of days, so that should give a good start next year.

I foresee a LOT of Bland farming in my future, since if I ONLY crafted the Flamin' and Wildfire leaves that I CURRENTLY have available, I'd need over 5.5k Bland just for that. I'm not even looking at the thousands of Hot leaves I have. ;)) Good thing, I got a decent amount of Queso Pump Charms and Wild Tonic, so we'll just be working on that. Now that I think about it, though, I might send a few of my remaining Golems to Queso River to help make a tiny dent in that.

I also have an absurd amount of FRift tolkens/heirlooms, so I am decidedly set in that area for awhile. I also sent a bunch of Golems to MoPi so I've been getting a nice stream of FBF and Dragonvine.

Currently my plan before LNY is to craft a whole mess of Flamin' so I can hunt for Stones/Embers with the double loot candles. So I'll probably hunt with Hot for awhile until I can craft at least 300 Flamin'? Possibly more if I can. I'm not too set on using double loot on QQ, although doubling Ember stones is nice. It's just that my main objective is to catch as many QQ's as possible, so doubling Stones/Embers as opposed to leaf/Bland is going to get me further in that regard.

Sooo we shall see. But that's my plan, anyway, haha!

I didn't really keep track of loot from the event, but I know I upped the amount of Bland Queso I have so that will be helpful.

I guess I haven't bought anything in awhile because I have nearly 50 million gold. I figured now might be a good time to get that third predatory processor and buy the School of Sharks trap since I'll still have plenty of gold afterward. Then it's back to the Labyrinth and alternating between there, Fort Rox, and Queso Canyon depending on how bored I get. Oh, and I guess I might as well make some progress in the rift at some point. I still have all three Grand Duchess adventures to complete.
