What an incredible offer, GGS, for the catalyzers.
It brings some purpose back to the laboratories and I want to thank you for FINALLY coming through for us.
As a small time player I won't ever get to Lab L100 in my lifetime, but at least I can now exchange all those legendary (and currently useless) catalyzer for those I can actually use to make blue/orange feeds and stuff.
THANK YOU!

    except I wish we could trade the ordinary catalyst up for the other ones & not only the better ones for lower ones
    I have a lot of ordinary catalyst that I will never be using

    well, maybe there will be another offer that does that some time

    Thank you Bennet Drake for posting this!!!  I saw your note here before noticing the offer :)

    I missed this. For those of us who haven't bothered with labs, is there a way to exchange the catalizers for other things as well?

  • I missed this. For those of us who haven't bothered with labs, is there a way to exchange the catalizers for other things as well?
    I saw nothing else in the offer.
    Higher level catalyzer for lower level ones... 1 Legendary catalyzer for 625 Ordinary or 125 Rare was what I used.
    So glad I didn't make rash decisions to just get rid of labs.
    I guess being a patient kinda person sometimes has advantages... lol.

    My pleasure :-)
    I messaged my co-op the minute I saw it... lol... and some other folk I could think of.
    Will try remember your name next time.
    I like being able to make a LOT of special seeds at once... 72 special dandelion seeds in 1 hour is infinitely better than a couple at a time in the nursery, since I now use a lot of special dandies in CC... lol.

    The main benefit of this is that you can avoid orchard production costs pretty easily. But it is going to be quite hard to make it worthwhile for the other buildings, since there are still not enough catalysers to make it work with cowsheds and duck coops if you have a lot of those. The investment is also quite expensive, costing over 350m dollars to get the laboratory high enough to produce the necessary premium items.

    There is also the issue of relying on this offer to get some of the necessary catalysers. If the offer doesn't come for a while, you can easily run out of premium feed.

    it is just GGS trying to make an ridiculous "upgrade" workable, when it never will be.  The best thing they could have done was put back Lavatory as it was and allow more than 1 per farm.  But as we ALL know GGS will never admit they were totally wrong. 

    Have you actually worked out how quick you will go thru your higher cats? 
    360 ordinary cats per hr for most.
    360 rare cats per hr for most

    1 legendary runs Lab for approx 1hr 45mins on ordinary and 1 legendary converted to rare lasts a whole 20mins (approx)  Your legendary cats won't last very long at all....lol

    I needed 3 labs working flat out just to ALMOST produce enough premium goods.  This won't even keep 1 running for 2 weeks before I run out of cats

  • Well, Ninja and Dark, I do appreciate your input.
    I'm not nowhere near your level of play, so things look a bit more rosy for me.
    So I reckon my 74,000 ordinary and 72,000 rare catalyst will last me a while.
    I just felt that for the average/mediocre player like me, it was a good thing. I'm sorry.

    Since I have worked very hard in leveling my Lab up, I don't want to get rid of the legendary catalysts.  Instead since I have lots of ordinary catalysts I would like to be able to trade them for higher types, for instance:
    2 regulars for 1 rare; 4 regulars for 1 precious; 6 regulars for 1 unique; and 8 regulars for 1 legendary.

    1 Legendary catalyzer for 625 Ordinary or 125 Rare
    so it is more like 625 ordinary for 1 legendary and 125 Rare for 1 legendary otherwise players like me would work out fast how to make profit from it

    You don't have to apologise. What you mentioned is a very good idea and it will even be useful for us. I was just mentioning that there will still be some gaps in production and it will take some investment to use. But it is still better than before.

    Thanks for posting this.  I got an offer today and was able to exchange mine.  This will come in handy for sure.

    My sentiments exactly!  Maybe this can go into the suggestion box?

    Well

    @FarmerCli (US1)

    If they would add the opposite conversion possible

    it would have to be at the very same rates than it is now
