We have some new quests with a new type of task - collecting items! In item collection quests, you have to find a certain amount of an item.
Items you already own do not count towards the quest, and once you complete the quest, the items you've collected for the quest are removed from your account. While on the quest, you won't be able to interact with the items that the quest is having you collect. For example, if required to collect Plump tomatoes, you will not be able to feed any to your pets while on the quest.
Items collected from random events, the Wheel, Clumsy Pet, Beirushu Avalanche, Lena, Chevron Brick Wall, Stray Meadow, Lindini Forest, Oasis-- pretty much anywhere in the game-- will count towards your quest. Note that items traded (via Trading Post, item shops, or directly from other users) do not count.
Here are the new quests:Plump Tomato Quest -> Maneki Neko PufflionBalulu Berry Quest -> Toadstool StarmotPuffle Seed Quest -> ??
