A: Using the available parts in your account, you can perform 2 actions:

The cost of upgrading or building one item will not change the cost of upgrading or building the other item. Upgrading an item improves all copies of that item, including those already queued for building.
The number of parts required to build items are as follows:
Q: Can I reallocate the parts used for building to upgrade an item and vice-versa?
A: Allocation of parts for used for either building or upgrading an item is final. You cannot re-allocate the parts once you decide to build/upgrade an item.
Q: I used the parts to “Build” items, but those were not added to my inventory.
A: Please note that you will not receive items in your inventory while the event is running. You will need to collect the items at the end of the event.
Q: If I "Build" some items and spend parts to "Upgrade" later, does it upgrade all the "built" items?
A: Yes, you can use the "Build" / "Upgrade" options in any order you want.
For example: If you have already built 10 items on Bronze Tier and use 10 parts to upgrade them to Silver, all the 10 built items will be upgraded to Silver Tier.
Q: When can I collect the items which are queued for building? What if I have unused parts left in my account?
A: Once the “Collect After:” timer ends (July 2nd 00:00 AM onwards), you will see an option to collect from the event and will no longer be able to earn additional parts.
You’ll get 5 additional days from July 2nd Midnight Pacific Time to use the remaining parts or to purchase parts and build/upgrade items if you wish to do so.
Clicking on Collect will open another window with more options:
Q: Can I build/upgrade more items after I click on the “Collect” button?
A: No, after Collecting the items from event, the event will end for you and you will be unable to build/upgrade more items. Any unused parts will be lapsed at the end of the Event (after clicking the Collect button).
