I waited until midnight and logged on. Happy days! My spirit tree was finally grown! I could finally get this show on the road!
I clicked it, opened my inventory to get to Tai Wannai Bwo and immediately got a random. Wasted a minute quickly doing the pinball, then rushed to Tai. Clicked the calquat, then the palm, ran to the second spirit tree and...
It was still on tick 11. -.- Logging on, then off again will have reset it, so that's another 5.33333333333333333333333 hours to wait.
I've logged out. BXPW will start for me tomorrow.
On the bright side, my headache's gone! :D
