So, at the moment Dream Points come in two methods, Daily and Hourly Tasks. There are some that stay there all the time but others that switch out daily/hourly
The Hourly Tasks are:
Flip the Coin
Play Higher or Lower
Play Treasure Hunt
Explore the Royal Tunnel (it changes how many levels, reward increases with number of levels required)
Exchange Gems (it changes which gem each hour)
The Daily Tasks are:
Adopt some eggs from the Lab
Adopt some eggs from the Daycare
Catch a pokemon on route 53
Find an egg in the Tall Grass

Not all tasks are available at the same time but i was thinking we could add a few more for variety?
Daily Tasks:
Click 5,000 times
Click 10,000 times
Grow (X) Berries (Reward depends on how many)
Cook in the Gem Cauldron
Adopt 5/10 pokemon from the beach (Reward depends on how many)
Catch (X) Safari Pokemon (Reward depends on how many)
Throw coins in the fountain
Hourly Tasks:
Click 1,000 times
Rumble in one specific location (Location changes randomly like exchanging gems does)
Cook in the Cooking Pot
Bid on an Auction
Set up an Auction
Trade at the GTS
Battle Someone
Use the Forum (Make a new feed or comment on a feed)
Play Hangman (X) Times (Reward increases with number of times required)
Play Concentration (X) Times (Reward increases with number of times required)

I just thought it might add a bit of variety to the Dream Points task board instead of the very few different tasks we have at the moment.
Obviously we would still have the same number of tasks available at any one time as we have now, just that there would be a wider choice of which ones we get each hour/day (Unless Riako decides to increase the number of tasks available at once).

Support, but I think you should remove the throw coins into the fountain one, as Riako has stated it is meant to be a Easter egg. Other then that everything else sounds good!

I’d love to have a wider variety of tasks, even adding on some of these as the hourly so it gets switched up a little more as well would be nice

I would prefer if the new interactions are hourly just like the current ones because if you do that many interactions per hour, you deserve the extra DP. I don't know about anyone else, but I usually only do 500 interactions an hour because I don't get DP for more than that. It will reward those who interact a lot while also motivating those who don't to do so, at least a bit.

Otherwise, support

I dont think its very possible to make 10000 interactions every hour though hah
and yeah the fountain couldnt be an hourly task because its a once-a-day thing that already potentially gives a boost.
There is a daily task for finding an egg in the tall grass too, the only problem being that you have to adopt it too.
But otherwise everything else sounds good to me :b

QuoteThere is a daily task for finding an egg in the tall grass too, the only problem being that you have to adopt it too.

Actually, you don't have to adopt it - finding it is enough. Unless this has been changed recently/with the Tall Grass update?
Because I remember searching for easy eggs in the Tall Grass during hunts I couldn't use the TG for (before the Tall Grass update, so maybe it was changed?) but not claiming it (having a full party) - it still would give me the DP reward. o:

-- edit; okay, yeah, this seems to have been changed (it was definitely possible in the past), so nevermind on the finding part - my bad. :v

As for the general suggestion of having more ways to get DP - yes, please!

I like the idea of adding new tasks to spice things up as long as it isn't the 10k clicks I think that might be a little much to ask for just to get 5 or so DPs

First of all, full support for adding new DreamWorld Tasks.

Second, I hope you don't mind, but I'll be going through your list and adding comments along the way.

- Click 5000/10000 times
While I can see 5000 clicks being a Daily Task, I feel that 10k might be a stretch. Maybe this could also be tangent to a new hourly task - 1000 clicks. I [and probably many others] stop clicking once I reach the 500 interactions, unless I really feel like interacting...

- Adopt 10 pokémon from the beach
No real comments on this one. Maybe consider putting the limit to 5 or something, in case we're lucky and catch a pokémon we immediately want to transfer to our box?
Alternatively, maybe we could give an 'exchange with Leah' task? Those aren't really limited by the site itself, just by the fishies you caught/catch. Could be an hourly 'Make 1 exchange with Leah' task?

- Catch some Safari pokémon
I'm sorry, but I don't really think this would be a fair one. It costs PD to enter the Safari Zone and you still won't be certain you'll actually catch something.

- Rumble in one specific location
If we're going to give a specific location, the time can also be set by us; as such, it's not impossible to have this be an hourly task. I also think it would be more beneficial as an hourly task rather than a daily task.

[Find Eggs in Tall Grass is already a Daily Task; though I've had to adopt the egg to be able to claim the prize, so I think that got changed with the update, Liirah]

- Grow in Berries
This honestly feels more like a Daily Task than an hourly task ^^' Depending on the berries you pick [possibly those you need], you might not finish the task within the required time.

- Cook in the Cooking Pot
Again, this feels more like a Daily Task than an hourly task ^^' It might actually screw up a possible Bulletin Board Order. Maybe I'm thinking too negatively, but chances of getting an Order you actually want to cook for, is a lot bigger if you have a day to find one as opposed to an hour.

- Cook in the Gem Cauldron
This definitely is a daily task. Same as rumbling, there's a chance you won't actually get the task done within a day [Mega Stone] and having to miss out on 24 tasks rather than just the one feels like too big a gap.

- Throw coins into the Fountain
As it's a much smaller amount, I don't really have a problem with this task, though it should be Daily, not hourly as, as some users already pointed out, you can only throw PD in the fountain once a day ^^'

- Bid/Set up Auction - Trade at GTS - Battle someone
Honestly, and maybe this sounds hypocritical, but I feel like the Daily Tasks [or hourly tasks] shouldn't be dependent on other users [or shouldn't be between two users, rather than with an NPC].

- Use the Forum
This would probably increase the SPAM in the Forum, especially if the task appears multiple times a day, so let's not ^^'

[Own additional suggestion]
- Play Hangman x times
*cough* Yeah ^^' It's literally free to play and even if you fail each and every time, it would still count the fact that you played [like Higher or Lower], so it'd never be an impossible task.

- Play Concentration x times
Why not? It's a fun game and, while it can cost a little, the 'small' ones aren't exactly hard, so you can always play it safe

Honestly, I wouldn't be opposed to having more tasks in general to keep busy with, but a wider variety would also be nice ^^

The only one I'd have an issue with is adopting from the beach. I'm mobile only, and don't always have a good connection. I manage to mess up catching tentacool enough that I've completely given up on fishing.

Giving this a bump and wanted to mention that I just made 10k interactions last hour, so it is possible. I was clicking on both my phone and laptop.
