A new Season is in the air in Zoo World. And with Spring on the horizon, that means it must be time for Saint Patrick’s Day!
Dr. Zoo Little is on an expedition to reunite Irish animals with their friends. Help him out, and you’ll receive unique (and festive!) new species for your zoo.
Ready to Shamrock
The Saint Patrick’s Day festivities work similarly to those from Saint Valentine’s. Upon logging in, you’ll find an animal waiting on your dock ready to celebrate the holiday. But first, they need a friend. Click on the animal (in this case, a Connemara Pony) to bring up the Saint Patrick’s Day menu.
How Saint Patrick’s Day Works in Zoo World
As with Saint Valentine’s, for Saint Patrick’s Day you’ll need to collect five special items to help the new animals. These items are Shamrocks, Green Balloons, Leprechaun Hats, Pots of Gold and Green Root Beer. Each of these are obtainable in a different way:
- Collect Pots of Gold from the feed.
- Collect Green Balloons, Leprechaun Hats and Shamrocks through gifting with friends.
- Collect flagons of Green Root Beer by feeding treats to your animals.
You can post to the Facebook Feed asking for help with the Green Balloons, Leprechaun Hats and Shamrocks up to four times per day, or once every six hours. Likewise, you can post Pots of Gold to the feed to help others once every six hours, and 10 friends can collect the riches from each feed post.
The Triumphant Return of Check Ins
Need help on an item? Click the lucky green heart that appears over the animal dock. Clicking this heart “checks in,” and you can do this once every five minutes (and gain one XP to boot). For every three checkins, you can choose the Saint Patrick’s Day component of your choice!
Since each piece can be purchased for one WLP, you’re getting the value of one WLP every fifteen minutes.
How to Get Green Root Beer
This item appears when you collect the hearts after feeding. You can collect up to 10 mugs total per day.
Ask a Friend to Find a Friend
Once you’ve got enough new pieces, you’re ready to help find the animal’s pal. Get 5 helping hands from your ZooMates to complete the mission. Clicking Ask Friends posts this request to your Facebook Feed, and from there your ZooMates can help you directly. Or you can always buy them for one WLP each.
All of the basic animals are Rare, and once completed, you have the option of upgrading both of them to Ultra Rares. Upgrading costs 20 WLP total, giving you two — twice the bang for your Wildlife Point.
You can upgrade to an Ultra Rare at any time during the promotion by clicking on the Rare in your zoo. This will always upgrade two at a time. Once the promotion ends, your species are set and can no longer be upgraded.
All Saint Patrick’s Day Seasonal animals will become breedable after the event ends.
Getting Started for Saint Patrick
Two animals are unlockable right off the bat:
As with Valentine’s Day, you must help both of these animals before helping the third, and so forth. Dr. Zoo Little brings new animals every three days, but you must have all the previous ones finished before you can work on them.
If you help them all, make sure you try placing them next to each other. You’re in for a treat!
Saint Patrick’s Day ends on March 29th at Noon PST. Check back here on the blog for updates, new animal announcements and giveaways that can help you complete your set!
