I only receive one asked when I advance a level. each quest seems to need multiple axes to get through them. I have been out of axes and have only just started the game. Items are difficult to locate in the canyon and in the cave.

Hi JoMarie,

Not to worry, you will earn more pickaxes as you level up. Also, you can earn free pickaxes via Tapjoy and other promotional offers in game. Apart from these, do check out our Sales in game.

My husband and I really like playing this game but you all make it hard for people to keep playing. I get you all need to make money but we have spent enough. I think every day we go into are game we should receive an axe because we really can't do anything without them. Also I don't want to play all these other games just to get axe because if I wanted to play them, I would already be playing them. Please be considering of your players!
It might be a little outdated, but Westbound Wiki has a Strategy page you should look at. The first section is on pickaxes. I need to update the prices, but there's a lot of great stuff on conserving pickaxes and budgeting. Really, being selective with Limited Edition Series is important.

I don't know about the strategy page... I agree there should be more axes. I honestly believe more people would play the game if it was easier to actually complete a mission.

It's not true that you will receive more axes as you advance game. Not true at all. Also I use several pic axes to locate items that cannot be found. How about anyone else?  I'm so ready to protest this game and it's makers because they don't fix issues. It's like they don't want to make the game enjoyable. 

A year later, no you still don't receive enough axes. I'm on level 66, and still only get a couple axes per level change. Kudos to the once a day giveaway of them when you clean your canyon, but still not enough to complete the quests in a timely manner. Ther needs to be more time before new quests are introduced. Also let us win them more regularly. All i ever seem to win is potion, and coins, sprinkled with a gold bar here and there. HARDLEY EVER AXES! At least let us trade in silver for axes or gold. I do take advantage of your bundle deals, but start rewarding your purchasing players better, or your going to loose them.

I find it takes 2 or 3 axes to find what you need.  
ONCE I found my item on the first axe and ONCE it took me 5 axes to find what I needed. 

I do use Tapjoy a lot but that can be frustrating.  
My biggest complaint with tapjoy is when they say 2 seemingly different offers are the same.  For example, "complete a survey and receive info about arthritis" is the same as "complete a survey and receive info about weight loss".
