Ginger in a necessary ingredient for sweet and sour sauce, which is used in several high-end recipes. Chefs who carry a spice rack don't complain about free spice, but for other players it will fill up space.
yeah Zen but 1 spice? one?? what is the point? I don't think anyone would go out specifically to make an entire recipe because they got 1 free ginger from a drop :? It just hit me whilst I was harvesting trees and the ginger popped into my bag. As luck would have it a piggy feeder was nearby so dropped it in.
you can eat ginger, but i tell you i never get enough drops for a recipe and i nearly always forget when making a batch of something that i already have JUST ONE GINGER so i was thinking fertilidust is definitely the most useless, but it can be sold for a handful of currants, which brings me to maybe a more useless (although not annoying) drop: the five currant bonus.
even stupid fertilidust is worth more than that, even if you have to schlepp it over to a vendor to be rid of it.
I decided to stockpile sesame oil a week ago just to see how many i would get. You usually get 3 at a time. With no plan, I wound up with 28. So I sold them to a vendor. You can't gift them to anyone - they're like curse. And they're useless as donations. Nobody wants to "find them behind a tree. Maybe they should develop a ginger & sesame oil recipe with lots of energy. If you open a store, I'd stay away from calling it "GINGER'S" or "OPEN SESAME".
I do cook and have no use for a single ginger. (My spice rack is generally full of Allspice and I grind spices as needed for recipes, usually in large batches.)
Same with the Sesame oils, I just pile them up and eat them in batches if I run low on energy. (And the same for the other food items that pop out of gardening plots in onesies.)
Getting something decent but infrequent like a Ruby or Fuel Cell is much better than getting something useless frequently. It just means you have to sort through your bags to get rid of junk constantly.
I started saving all those drops when I reached level 60 the first time. Believe me, all those bags with 'good for nothing' drops sure helped getting to 60 this time ;)
ETA; also all food I got from the AL.
I have a cabinet for it now, 3 to be precise, they're in my kitchen. One (32) with all the food, two (wall) with bags. Every time I have a new stack it goes into a bag. It'll be useful again some day, I hope ;)
