What’s the most time-efficient method of earning rainbow stars? Need 200 for the chests containing those colored keys.

Edit: To be more specific, which event is best?

Edit 2: Got the achievement with the help of a generous friend a few days ago. For anyone wondering, Cats vs. Dinos is one of the best ways to earn rainbow stars. If you need a video guide, this one seemed quite good: https://youtu.be/q_XBG4LqxwA.

Doing the Portal events when they are live.

Edit: If you have high-ranked characters, doing boss hunts with a group on normal and grinding out rainbow stars is optimal. If you don't have high-ranked characters, the super mix modes where the crazy settings are fast movement or low health are good since games typical are faster than normal.

keep in mind you can only hold 50 stars at a time and only one key chest is available per event. so at most you can unlock one and save 50 for the next week

As of today I am holding 76/50 rainbow stars and had about 260/200 regular stars. Is this just a fortunate glitch, or can you really hold more than the maximum allotment?

Also, you earn rainbow stars ridiculously fast in Cats vs. Dinos. Play as much as you can for the next day until it's gone for who knows how long again.

fortunate glitch i guess, when I played the other day, it capped at 50 even after playing an extra round, and I couldn't trade regular stars for rainbow with the seagull.
Or have you purchased anything with real money? maybe they let it go past the cap so you don't get ripped off otherwise

The most time efficient method is to buy the cheap DLC that skips the whole process. wink

What DLC do you mean? I've read the guide, but I can't actually find that DLC mentioned.

OK found it by using Google. Couldn't find it when I tried the store.

10 bucks is not what I'd consider "cheap" though. I was expecting under 4-5 bucks.

Yeah, that's the one. I forgot I got it 50% off though since the DLC was on sale around the same time it went Games with Gold (there was a very helpful article here on TA that recommended it).

You also get 200 stars and 50 rainbow stars aswell as the gnome keys and the 2 achievement characters. I think I'd still pay $10 since I got the game for free anyway but it depends how much your time is worth to you.

That just seems a bit rich for me, plus I don't wanna go down the path of paying to unlock achievements. I like the game quite a bit, so I'll just do that achievement the normal way.

By the time I killed rainbow gnome I had 1.2m coins. I could then buy the packs of 30 rainbow stars to open the locked chest with the extra characters. Doesnt help get you the keys, but makes the 150 stars at the end easier
