At first preserve worked on one rosy red apple with 20 levels 114 bonus, but now it just fails.
It started working again with 40 levels 171 bonus on one apple.
I did a bit more testing with a 193 bonus, preserving one apple at a time.
- 24 (71%) succeeded
- 10 (29%) failed
Trying to preserve 6 rosy red apples at the same time failed 15 times in a row with no success.
So it's harder with more items.
It seems having your hands full also make it harder to preserve. Even with hands empty I can't do 3 apples at the same time. After a couple of attempts I managed 2 apples. --Frazyl (talk) 00:21, 18 April 2020 (EDT)
