A sick elephanilla

A good gardener keeps his piñatas happy and healthy, but that's not always easy!

Reasons why a pinata get sick are:

  • Losing a fight
  • Eating sour candy
  • Getting whacked with the shovel
  • Near poisonous plants, like the toadstool
  • Not enough room to roam (trapped, confined, etc.)

A sick piñata lies on the ground looking and sounding miserable.

You may call Doc Patchingo to heal a sick piñata for a small fee. If left untreated, the witch doctor Dastardos will make his way to the sick piñata and break it.

Also, if you have a Chewnicorn in your garden, you may direct it to a sick piñata to heal it. Note that after a Chewnicorn has healed a piñata, you will have to wait some time before it can heal again.

Additionaly, the accessory Halo of Hardness will automatically heal a sick piñata that has it on.

Broken piñatas

When a piñata is broken, it will float to the edge of your garden and reform as a wild piñata, losing its name and any accessories it may have been wearing. The candy in the piñata will be left in your garden for other piñata to eat.

Also, if a certain type of Pinata is beaten too much, they will be reluctant to visit your garden.

Lots of my animals are suddenly coming down ill... what can I do?

Make sure your garden doesn't have any weeds like the toadstool, which will make pinatas ill, or the thistle, which will irritate pinatas and make them fight. View thread
