After welcoming Hades you should get 16 gems for completing the Hercules set of characters. Hades first quest is a 1 hour job. I’m waiting to send off any Hercules characters on jobs until that quest is finished.

If that ends up being the only hurdle, we're estimating the cost of this over on the Reddit, and it sounds like you could still get Hades for 30 Gems + in the neighborhood of 5 gems per 1000 EC. This is still a work in progress, though.
Thanks for the tip! I don't plan on spending any gems (or cash) on Hades, though. I'm fine either way on this one. Now if it had been Hector, or Ian...

I'm saving gems so I'll have plenty if they ever do an event for Up or Hunchback, where I will want everything. :thumbsup2

From what I've read, it's two short quests after this. One for Hades, and one for a Level 2 Hades + an already Level 6 Meg.
Yep, once you welcome Hades there are just a 1 and a 2 hourquest and then it’s over. Think this might be the earliest I’ve completed an event?

    I got really lucky with drops considering I'm not playing too often right now, and I am welcoming Hades this morning. Anyone remember what the deal is with gem conversion these days?

    Congrats! Barring any changes it should be 1 gem for every 2K EC and is capped at 40 gems.

    Thanks, so now it takes 80K EC to get 40 gems? Wow they are stingy. I miss the 80 gem days, and now even the 40k for 40 days. I guess I have to figure out how many of them I want to level up at this point.

    Finally leveling Lady to 10. I will be able to put her away tomorrow.
    Ian and Blazey are collecting for level 10 and I can then send all of Onward home.
    Pocahontas is at 8
    Meeko and Percy are at 6.

    I was away Friday and Saturday so I was unable to start collecting for Hades since I had no internet. You can play offline but apparently the characters that collect the tokens need to update when the character initially becomes available. I still think I will be ok. I have 4/8 skulls and 2/9 ear hats.

    I need 4 more hats, not likely with the drops I've been getting and only 2 characters who can get them. Right now would cost 110 gems, and I have 77.

    0/6 on the last token drop to welcome Hades. No worries about completion for this event either.
    The final event tasks are short enough, but there's no benefit to completing them. Just get that last token to drop and you can start the 8-hour welcome with a bit of time to spare once he's complete.

    My drops for the ear hats have been ridiculous- 5 over 4 days using 3 characters. Will have to buy the extra tokens. Will it be ok as long as I start welcoming before the event finishes?

    I believe you just have to start the Welcoming task.
    That's how it worked for me with Ian, but some people here said it didn't use to be that way.

    No Hades for me. Even if I somehow make it to the needed EC, I would rather have the gem conversion to put toward something I care about rather than another character I will just stick in the castle.

    Good luck to everyone still racing toward the finish line!

    I used 198 gems to get Hades. I didn’t really like him, it I don’t have very many villains and it hurts the game sometimes to it have them in challenges- and better 198 gems than $10 cash.

    That's a selfish mindset. The interns can't buy next semester's books with your imaginary gems.
