Given the community event component has ended, I'm going to add a poll about this event and start a new thread to transfer over the baby animal component that's still going for another 2 weeks to the new thread. I have a pic of the new splash screen for the next part of the Halloween story too which I'll add.

Tips about the Event
* What happens when an event finishes?? Click here to take you to a post called How Community Events Work in the Hub. (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?75916-How-to-use-the-Hub-to-find-information-and-ask-questions&p=1190378&viewfull=1#post1190378)
* Help! I can't see the upgrade button? If you do not see the upgrade button, click somewhere else on the board and then click back on the item. The buttons should return. Force close if still not showing.
* Help! The Skunk-o-lantern drops aren't going into my inventory! There is a counter on the top right of screen and all Skunk-o-lantern drops go there. They do not go into inventory.

* To get the first individual prize, you need to collect 20 Skunk-o-lantern.
* When you reach 20, the next individual prize opens up for you and will show you how many Skunk-o-lantern you will need for the next individual prize.
* Once you reach 100 Skunk-o-lantern, you are eligible for any and all of the prizes that are earned by the community (shown on the second row).
* The total number of Skunk-o-lantern is updated on the counter as soon as they drop, not when they are collected.
* Be mindful that upgrading resets the timer back to 4 hours.

* Treat Bags randomly drop from Farmhouse, Toadstool Farmhouse, Cottage, Toadstool Cottage, Market Place, Library, Tavern, Watchtower, Lantern Spire, Toadstool Spire, Ghost Knight, and the Werepea.

* You now get energy back when collecting pumpkins. (Changed on day 1)

Get out your farmhouses! Collect skunkupine masks for upgrading the community building and spawn a new opponent.

Hint: Get four times the pumpkin crop by using both farming boosts (half the time and double the crops). It's a community event plus more.

Keep in mind the COMMUNITY event is just under 2 weeks. The treat bags/animal crafting is just under 4 weeks. Focus on the first and upgrading the event building to set yourself up well.

To upgrade haunted cabin to L2:

10 bone
10 fur
5 skunkupine masks (from farmhouses - just a drop, not from a battle, that's separate)
10 rat tail

To upgrade to L3

20 bone
20 fur
10 skunkupine masks (from farmhouses)
15 pumpkins (from farming - 3 hr timer)

To upgrade to L4:
15 skunkupine masks
20 Were-tails
25 pumpkins
20 bones

To upgrade to L5:
20 skunkupine masks
30 were-tails
35 pumpkins
1 wereskunk fang

If you want to check your inventory levels of either bone or fur quickly, you can utilize the Royal Exchange to see your current count.

From the Hub:

Fur
Found: skunkupine, fangbeast, Ivy's hut, manticore, Pepe, Pepe's house, gift from neighbours (expired), Reindeer Stable, various Baron's Game Tent prizes, Poinsettia Manticore (Baron's tent), Elf Skunkupine (Baron's tent), Monster Stable, Flower Power Manticore, Boston Terrier, L10 Colosseum, Fox Pup, Tiger Kitten, Lion Cub, Wolf Pup, Fireworks Griffin, Royal Griffin, Fire Fox, Black Tiger Kitten, Friendly Werewolf, Frankencore (Baron's tent), Griffina (Baron's tent), Autumn Raccoon, Yeti, Arctic Bear, Glimmer Manticore, Armored Manticore, Cupid Puppy, Cupid Kitty, Swamp Kitty, Queen Mantiwort, Baby Mantiwort, Arctic Fox, Rainbow Poodle (Baron's Tent), Frizzly Bear, Flower Puppy (Baron's Game Tent), Flyger, Celestine Cat, Onyx Boar, Skunkupea, Fangpup, Faerie Griffin, Tea Cup Poodle, Shi Tzu, Armored flyger, Flyger cub, White flyger cub, Pepe Jr

Bone
Found: fangbeast, trolls, dire boars, lovecupines, Ivy's hut, troll pit, troll castle, spooky tree, Gentleman Troll (Baron's Tent prize), L10 Colosseum, Friendly Werewolf, Haunted Castle, Merry Reindeer, Onyx Boar, Fangpup, Tea Cup Poodle, Shi Tzu, Flyger cub, White flyger cub

But better yet, go to the chickens and slay the new beast from there. You need its were-tails anyway, and it drops both bone and fur.

Get out your farmhouses!

The dialog took me to the farmhouses to trick or treat & I couldn't do anything...the game froze. Great! Glitches already!
Had to force close to continue.

And get rid of your parked monster if you have one! Have to battle ghost knights!. Spawned at farmhouses.

Ivy's Cursed Costume Contest... Ghost knights take 13 hits. That's clever. I got two voodoo knights and 1 ghost token to drop.

Community event/A Candy Conniption: The Haunted cabin drops 1 skunk-o-lantern at L1. It has a 4 hr timer. Edit: I see the full list of what should drop that others have posted now when I click the question mark.

In addition to Old Thomas, the info on the question mark shares that you get wereskunks from feeding chickens, and they drop weretails. I got one. It's cute.

S8... if we are to collect lanterns every 2 hours you need to change the timer. The cabin is set at 4 hours!!!

And I'm getting nothing but regular fangbeasts spawning from my farmhouses! Turn on the ghost knights, please!


Never mind!!! Just got one! Too cool!!

I'm getting some random rewards screens pop up while collecting from farmhouses. The second one I just got had 1 bandage and 1 creepy candle. I don't believe I completed a full task, but it might have coincided with getting the skunk masks I need to upgrade?

Now that I upgraded to L2, I got another reward of 1 bottled ghost and another 1 creepy candle.

It looks like the reward pictured is the "treat bag" and Ivy's Magic Nursery allows you to make a treat bag. They have the chance of dropping bottled ghosts, creepy candles, bandages, ivy's stay-fresh, white paint and bone brushes. These components are then fused along with farmed pumpkins to make the three themed halloween pets. Phew.

There is a LOT going on here.

Were you collecting from a toadstool farmhouse when it spawned & crashed? There's a report in the bug forum that those have started causing the game to crash (I also had this problem). If it's not happening with your regular farmhouses it's probably the same bug.

I guess the drop for the Ghost Knight-token is the same as the drop for the previous animal: 1 in 4, or 1 in 5, something like that. So, if you need 80 tokens, you need to defeat 320-400 Ghostly Knights, x 15 energy (give or take, you also need energy to collect from farmhouses to make him spawn), that would require 4,800-6,000 energy...

10-05-17, 01:16 PM
Right now I’m very confused and a little overwhelmed with the competing demands for energy. There’s an awful lot going on! But S8 usually rocks when it comes to Halloween so I’m remaining hopeful.

I’ve been focusing initially on farmhouses. My drop rate isn’t impressive. So far I have 34 voodoo knights, a total of 9 skunkupine masks and 1 knight's token. The knights are such a huge energy drain. I really don’t need that many farmhouses out because I run out of energy fighting the knights.

I don’t quite understand yet the difference between the tasks that have the 14 day timer versus the ones that have the 28 day timer but I’m guessing I’ll figure that out at some point.

I think S8 turned off the toadlette soldiers about a month ago. It’s been at least that long since I’ve seen one and I collect regularly from my toadstool buildings. I’m getting a lot of ghosts from the t-farmhouses.

I'm not sure what you mean. I'm talking about harvesting the crop of pumpkins. I filled my field and because I doubled the harvest, I got 80something farmed pumpkins with 40 energy.

I collected from about 20 farmhouses a bunch of times. I didn't play the last four days, just logged in to collect 18 energy from wizarding schools a couple times a day and daily Ali's, giving me about 160 energy when this event started. I like doing that starting on Sunday when I can. It gives me a break from the game while giving myself a head start for something fresh.

Make sure you're using the Harvest Champion Boost. When you tap a pumpkin to collect you should see the boost to the left & get 2 pumpkins per plot.

The Nimble Farmer Boost will make the clock run quicker on your crops & is active for 3 hours.

I did the same. I was doing much better getting the knight than I was getting masks. While my double-harvest boost was active, I didn't want to waste time with those energy drainers so I would collect from farmhouses after spawning a were-skunk.

I still don't have a good feel for whether I should park a monster during non-boosted play. I feel like I am getting way too many knights, but the drop rate for the knights token is awful. I have 38 of the voodoo nights and just 1 knights token, so I might be stuck fighting them constantly.

Usually, when I use my harvest champion, I recieve an energy return on the crops you collect or even in normal circumstances, you recieve an energy return from some of your crops but I've recieves none on the pumpkin harvest. Has this happened to anyone else or is it just me?

Yes. No energy back for a field of pumpkins here, even with the boost.

That's a bit unfair. Energy is already tight as it is. I love the quests and the look of the ghost but where the pumpkins are considered it seems we are loosing out immensely

Two different beasts to battle-the wereskunk and ghost knight- rocks to smash for rock candy for treat bags. Pumpkins to collect. Masks to collect. A lot of energy needed for sure. I guess I'll need to choose my battles.
I think I'll concentrate on leveling up the building first.
Costumed pets will be my lowest priority.

Note the pumpkins do not drop any energy when harvested. I'm glad I did the double the crop boost. I was able to upgrade and nearly fill my stash on one energy refill.

Regarding coins, Lucky Clover also costs more coins than it provides so it probably isn't a mistake.

I saw that, too. Since S8 wants to help us spend our coins with high prices for new items to buy, I wonder if this is going to be the way it is for any new crops since the last 2 cost more to make than we get to collect.

Blimey this is busy! Mostly in a good way but... Wow.

My plan of campaign :

Mentally Park the idea of crafting a pet. I have a lot of pets, including a lot of the baby ones. And there's a further two weeks to worry about that. I'll make the lollipops if I get time, but right now I'm crafting noodles to use the eggs.

Focus on upgrading the Hut. That will maximise my chances of getting the lair, which looks like it would be useful in a beast hunt. Grow pumpkins in bulk to achieve that, setting all other goals to one side for now.

Pleased to see that S8 have heard the complaints about goals being dull. So far this has had something different to find in each level. That's impressive.

I suspect they're aiming for something that will ensure everyone gets something out of it, though many of us will never make 80 tokens. I have precisely one so far, and have been faithfully collecting from farmhouses to get the masks.

This will be... Interesting.

Except when you smash rocks and visit the chickens and cows (need milk for candy), you also get to battle Dire Boars and Fang Beasts and it looks like the frequency of appearance for these buggers have gone up.

Astute analysis. Everyone will concentrate on what they want to get out of these goals.

It is possible to get the Ghost Knight even with bad drops of the tokens. You only need to get 3 a day with 27 days left. Drops always seem to get better at the end of these events. However, this is energy intensive.

Chopping rocks for Treat Bags for pets requires a ton of energy. With the 6 different drops for the 3 Halloween pets, it will be a miracle if I get one pet if my drops remain the same and I have enough energy. I bet S8 will offer those unlimited energy packs.

I will work on upgrading the Haunted Cabin. I love the Beast Lair. A nice Halloween addition.

As for us who always use gems in these events, some of the gem amounts needed for certain items are exorbitant. As time goes on, it will become more clear where I will want to use gems.

All in all, this event is time and energy intensive. More than ever, it favors those with massive amounts of alicorns. Fighting the monsters from chickens also uses up a lot of energy, as does growing pumpkins. There is plenty of time left, as we have only just started. However, a favorable outcome will require that me and my iPad will need to be joined at the hip for the rest of October.

This event is very interesting and challenging. We will definitely not be bored. Graphics of new items are excellent. Let us enjoy the ride and see where it takes us. I will try to hold off complaining for at least another week.

I have considered parking the ghost knight while collecting from farmhouses but decided against it. I'm positive that I'll be able to get all the 'Candy Conniption' prizes sooner or later. Getting them sooner will mean getting haunted babies and werepea sooner but that comes at a cost of tapping extra farmhouses if you do want to craft ghost knight eventually.
I'm also holding off crafting treat bags for now since they can be obtained from other sources as well (farmhouses, candy conniption prizes, goals) and require so much energy-consuming rock chopping and milking.
What are your strategies for this event?
I wish there was a guaranteed source of candied rocks or wereskunk spawning. If anyone finds one please do share :)

It seems the treat bags are designed to give 3 pumpkins and 1 ghost, candle, bandage, etc to craft a cutie monster. It's easy to quickly max on pumpkins, so it must default to 0 coins when pumpkins are maxed. At least that is my guess.

I just got a bandage and 15 coins, I'd have preferred the 3 pumpkins as I only have 32 at the moment. Once again, the rewards hardly seem worth the effort, at least when it comes to crafting treat bags. Not a complaint, just an observation.

Crafting each treat bag requires 2 sugar (10 sugarcane), 10 milk, 10 pumpkins, 10 candied rocks, and 10 voodoo knights. That is a lot of time and energy for one baby monster material and 3 pumpkins, or even worse...0-15 coins.

S8, please reconsider the treat bag contents. Honestly the crafted treat bags could be a bit more generous. Harvesting 10 pumpkins to maybe get 3 back, plus all those other materials, seems a bit ridiculous, don't cha think?
And please consider at the very least adding an energy return on harvesting pumpkins. Even the lucky clover gives a little something back.

I just upgraded and triggered the skunkupops, so I'm putting the crafting of treat bags on hold for now to work on those instead. The 'treats' haven't been worth the cost to make them anyway, since they seem to giving lots of tricks, in my opinion. I'll just hope for a few to drop from the farmhouses while I'm trying to get masks, which have already become quite rare for me. Sigh.

not all drops are 'treats' some are 'tricks' as well, but think it's part of Halloween.

The treat bag automatically opens when you collect it. You get a pop-up telling you what was in it. Usually one item necessary for crafting the little creatures and either pumpkins or from 0-15 coins.

I'm one of the ones who is saying they aren't worth it. That's just my personal opinion so please let me clarify: Of course they help with the goals, and there is value in that, but they require a tremendous amount of energy to collect the materials to craft them. So, at this time, I feel my energy is better spent working on upgrading the cabin.

Ps. Collecting from the farmhouses sometimes drops a treat bag also. You get the same pop-up telling you what was inside, and in my experience, there are less 'tricks' in those. Unfortunately, those are very rare.

Usually, when I use my harvest champion, I recieve an energy return on the crops you collect or even in normal circumstances, you recieve an energy return from some of your crops but I've recieves none on the pumpkin harvest. Has this happened to anyone else or is it just me?

Yep. I'm experiencing it too. It appears that "Proof of mastery of the Tabernum Research of Agriculture, reducing energy required to harvest crops by 33%" does not apply to pumpkins.

I'm wondering if this is by design or is it a bug. The reduced energy required still works with other crops, so I'm guessing it's by design, just another way to get us to spend money.

Yes. You will be able to keep your Haunted Keep on your board in addition to the new Gothic King's Keep or Gothic Queen's Court.

However, the new Gothic King's Keep and Gothic Queen's Court obey the same rules as the Toadstool Buildings, so you will not be able to have a Gothic King's Keep and Gothic Queen's Court in addition to the core game's regular King's Keep and Queen's Court on your board at the same time.

While I appreciate S8 thinking of lower level players during events, I'm not sure why this event needs that distinction. As far as I can tell, the needed items come from things all players eligible to play have and all levels have the same energy (in theory, alicorns exceptions of course). it could just be that there is something I'm missing. There is so much going on it's hard to focus (I'm doing chickens, farmhouses and pumpkins and can't figure out why I want to battle knights)

Again, I'm glad the lower levels have it "easier" maybe this will be the event they can finish and the higher levels with no extra energy will be left
Struggling. There was definitely 1 event last year that the lower requirements/different resources were to my advantage.

There is so much going on it's hard to focus (I'm doing chickens, farmhouses and pumpkins and can't figure out why I want to battle knights)

Again, I'm glad the lower levels have it "easier" maybe this will be the event they can finish and the higher levels with no extra energy will be left
Struggling. There was definitely 1 event last year that the lower requirements/different resources were to my advantage.

I actually think higher levers are much more likely to have alicorns...or daily ones at least. Also Wizard schools...

Have you traded runes with elves? If yes...then you can craft boosts in the Apothecary . Once right boost is activated - ( for harvest there are two). One speeds up growing time - for 3 hours...( cuts it in half)...and one boost doubles the crops for three hours, while active. So if you boost and harvest 15 pumpkins - you would get 30.

Yes I think so too, I really appreciate S8 making this difference because I am always struggling with the events and everytime I can't finish, last event I just about reached level 9, and I play approx. Every hour - 2 hours which I think is a lot. You only have to visit level 50 Kingdoms to see the difference(well most anyway), I am level 34 now and I am not nearly as far as level 40 plus players let alone level 50, and a lot of Kingdoms are at level 50 for a while as it doesn't go higher than 50.
I still haven't finished the elven post which from what I have read boosts crops or something, and many more advantages probably.
So yes a big thanks to S8 and hopefully it will make a difference this time.

Only those playing for years. I'm level 48 and just received 1 alicorn for watching a video (it's a weekly so while nice not very helpful in events). Oh and I also just finished the wedding Ali quest so I have received between 5-14 extra once a day..and not even close to a wizard school. I didn't reach a high enough level to participate in the great reward events ).

And I'm not upset they have lower requirements, it's great if it helps them finish when it's usually impossible. it's just there's a large group of non-Ali farm kingdoms that are in the same position on this event. Also not looking for S8 to change requirements. I'm just trying to figure out where the advantage for being level 40+ is when you do have energy farms.

Also, I'm not sure the royal keep skin is that exciting. Too bad we can't have 2. For those that redecorate, I hope it can be stored and used next Halloween.

I also lost intrest once they said it is just a skin. I have zero desire to keep a skin - I don't want my court to look like that all the time. If it were another castle - like haunted keep - I would be excited...but just a skin - disappointed.

When I collect pumpkins i do not get energy back as I do when collecting any other crop... Is this normal?


Yes... I'll add this to page 1 info as its been queried a few times today. I used the Elven boost to at least get double crops to save a bit of energy.




S8, please reconsider the treat bag contents. Honestly the crafted treat bags could be a bit more generous. Harvesting 10 pumpkins to maybe get 3 back, plus all those other materials, seems a bit ridiculous, don't cha think?
And please consider at the very least adding an energy return on harvesting pumpkins. Even the lucky clover gives a little something back.

I just collected my pumpkins and I GOT ENERGY BACK, so they must have changed it! :)
It wasn't a lot, but better than nothing. I'm not using any boosts or anything either.

A lot of players with armies of Alicorns actually bought them, I have 90 white weekly alicorns and I bought everyone of them, not all at once and usually in sales, I also have over 100 daily alicorns which I also bought in the sales, I paid real hard cash as a lot of others also have that dont have the "loveshack" you can buy gems at any level and get yourself as many alicorns as you want.

Not interested in skins S8, that is a cop out, hope you have something else planned.

If I’m reading things correctly, the final community prize just helps upgrade the haunted cabin. And given we tend to get the prize just before the event ends each time, not sure how much value this will have for anyone.

Maybe a very small minority who need one last upgrade / collection to get the individual prize and can play at that exact time???

Or am I missing something?

This morning: pumkings harvest = no energy return at all
Earlier this evening: yes energy returned yay! plus it seemed about the same energy return as other crops I guess? I don't really pay attention to energy return, I'm just happy when I get any orange zigzags to pop up with the harvest.

Thanks s8 for adding that in for these!


edit to add
also MEH to the only one keep out at a time! I wanted to have a dainty corner of my kingdom with my normal castle and then my gothic corner with those black lilies (i forget they're sorta dead looking) on the opposite and then make this sweet divider and have my kingdom duel each other at the joust Dainty vs Goth.

Plus I was hoping I could have both castle shapes out at once which would be totally rad.

While I'm still loving the aesthetics of everything thus far, I'll admit to being a bit thrown by the community event prizes (excluding the building) but maybe there's something in the wording I misunderstood.

I'm pretty bummed that we won't be getting an additional Halloween building as the picture hinted we would. True, I do enjoy the idea of being able to decorate our realms without taking up more valuable space but when it comes to a building so useful and with such covetous drops such as the Keeps I'd rather take up the real estate with another than just slap a coat of paint on it. Not to mention lots of the past holiday buildings have great drops that are useful for daily play so it seems a bit sad that it appears we won't be getting any this year. Fingers crossed there's more on offer down the line.

On the positive; I'm glad we have until the 1st for the Ghost Knight because it's my favorite to look at and I need to get as many as possible. Loving that the farmhouses drop those treat bags as I'm focusing on the 13 day goals first and yet I'm already over the halfway mark to getting 2 of the 3 Halloween animals from the farm drops alone. Makes me hopeful I'll be able to get my minimum of two of each animal without a lot of stress.

Regardless of how things progress, I'm happy with any Halloween items and nothing can/will ever change that!

So I must have killed about 15-20 ghosts over the last two days and I have one token - not good odds for collecting 80. I was really excited about this event and everything else is dropping fine so not being able to craft a ghost is a little disappointing. ��

calicokittennope
10-07-17, 01:52 AM
Why do double-crop harvested pumpkins drop 50 coin each, but a single harvest crop without elven-buff is 100 coin? I thought I was going to get 100 back on each and break even. If one is 100, then two would be 200, but nope.

Yeah ghost token drops are not great for me either :( I get 1 token a day for all the ghosts knights I kill.

Unless drop rates change dramatically then I don't see how I could craft one either, even with 26 days left and all I hate to be all meh about it but.. meh, my drop ratio is bad enough that I feel like I'd need 78 days at least to be able to get my one coin a day. I play a lot, so I sort of expected to have a few more coins by now. Especially when about 3 a day are needed to stay on target, that's sort of crushing the fun to not be able to get them to drop.

I have received the double pumpkins but no energy and no coins. Also, no tickets from the geese. Is anyone else concerned about the drop rate for the tails and masks. There are sooo many needed and we only have 2 weeks to get the castle done whereas we have almost a month to do the pets. It seems like both elements should be almost a month.

Ok...I can see the geese dropping feathers since there's a new trade in the Royal Exchange, but why did Pfferenot the Pony drop a ticket just now???? Checked the Prize Booth and they can't be used!!!

Yea...the drop rate on the tokens is horrendous. It'll probably take me the whole time, if I'm lucky, to get enough for 1 ghost knight. What's bad is being maxed on the voodoo knights & I don't really care about the baby pets.

Tired of repeatedly tapping chickens for wereskunks, farmhouses for masks, and cooking pops in the kitchen. I do wish you'd be more creative with the upgrade requirements S8. Maybe a treat bag or 2 for an upgrade, finding ghosts at some of the characters houses, going on an adventure for mummies. I could go on & on.

After 2 days, I'm already burned out on this one & don't see the advantage of moving forward.

Just got a Treat Bag from collecting from a farmhouse. What a delightful feeling. S8, this is what it should be all about. The incessant tapping on these farmhouses should yield much more frequent drops. After 26 swipes at 2 ghost knights, something should drop . Sometimes I fight 4 ghost knights and get nothing. I have just about used up all my extra energy sources.
We all love treats. Let's cut down on the tricks.

I alteady gave up on the ghost, with all that I killed I got only 2 tokens... so I chose to focus first On updating the haunted cabin and then we?ll see. Spawn and drop rates are fair. It helps me to focus on one at the time. First I collected all the masks and now im doing the tails. Makes it a lot easier to get all things needed, or at least it feels less energy demanding :D

I have my double boost on and the fellora blossom is giving back 4450 per collection. I thought it was 8900 when it was boosted, that's why I bother with it. Maybe I'm wrong and it was never that way, so pumpkins wouldn't be either? I think the coins and energy should be doubled...

I know I'm not getting double energy from pumpkins like I do from wheat or strawberries. Weird. At least it's some and not 0?

For an optimistic take on it, consider when we might get the last community prize. It may be a day before the event ends in which case lots of people could benefit by being able to get in a final upgrade and earn more jack-o-lanterns to earn more treat bags to help craft mummy pets. If we get it an hour before the event ends then it may not be as useful, but lots of people work up to the last moment of an event (including me!). Remember how many people were working on that 4 hour pony when that event ended? So getting a boost even towards the very end of an event could still benefit many players. Just saying the glass (or jack-o-lantern) could be half full for the community prizes :)

I guess the drop for the Ghost Knight-token is the same as the drop for the previous animal: 1 in 4, or 1 in 5, something like that. So, if you need 80 tokens, you need to defeat 320-400 Ghostly Knights, x 15 energy (give or take, you also need energy to collect from farmhouses to make him spawn), that would require 4,800-6,000 energy...

My cabin is at level 5, so I?ve fought a lot of ghosts. I?ve got 2 tokens so far. I don?t think I?ll be taming a Ghostly Knight!

The ghost knight is craftable until Nov 1st so no need to panic yet.
I've put battling them on the back burner and instead am concentrating on upgrading the cabin since that's a much shorter event.

Why isn't there anything cool and Halloween-y or fall to buy in the marketplace?!!!!!??? The market place has been so neglected these past several months. I have had loads of events that I would love to buy complementing decor for (like the carnival) but there is nothing there. Why S8? This would be a great revenue maker for you!!! I would love some spooky paths and some more spooky walls and towers but there is nothing. It's really sad.

For an optimistic take on it, consider when we might get the last community prize. It may be a day before the event ends in which case lots of people could benefit by being able to get in a final upgrade and earn more jack-o-lanterns to earn more treat bags to help craft mummy pets. If we get it an hour before the event ends then it may not be as useful, but lots of people work up to the last moment of an event (including me!). Remember how many people were working on that 4 hour pony when that event ended? So getting a boost even towards the very end of an event could still benefit many players. Just saying the glass (or jack-o-lantern) could be half full for the community prizes :)

Typically the final community prize is won with less than an hour to go in the event. So I doubt it will be useful. And i wonder if we all get the same items or if it's random as to what you get. This event seemed cool at first but is getting more lackluster by the day. I am already super bored.

I'm hesitantly optimistic about this event. I've been able to upgrade my cabin to level 5 much more quickly than other events. My only concern are the skunkupine masks as they have the worst drop rate. I'm always falling behind even though the farmhouses have a 10 min timer. I just don't have the patience or endurance to babysit my phone every 10 min. Real life distractions always get in the way of me completing any event and I shudder to think how many more masks I still need to collect! Plus I'm not at all excited about the community prizes. Some Halloween decor would've been much better. I don't care for pets at all as they hardly ever drop anything useful.

Agree!!

Feeling this way too and it is only day 3 ...I have brought out almost anything I had related to Halloween to try and make this more fun, but farmhouse, chicken, farmhouse, chicken , visit OT, farmhouse, chicken ... not really much variety at all. And with high hit rates needed for each monster, my extra energy sources are used rapidly. So I really feel for those who don’t have much energy.

I am not even that keen on the new babies we can craft - animals in costumes generally don’t appeal to me. The one we can win is okay though. Will keep plodding on though, as usual :)

(PS. What is ios11 doing to my apostrophes!! Keeps changing them to ?)

To upgrade the haunted cabin to level 6

25 Skunkupine mask, 40 Were-tail, 5 Skunkupop, 5 Wereskunk fang

If you could update that in post 1, I'm sure that would be helpful.

Thank you SW, I love post 1 and refer to it all the time.

I also tend to try and have a beast parked while visiting farmhouses to avoid using energy to battle the knights while working on the upgrade. But without a guaranteed token drop each time, I am trying not to think of how many farmhouses I would need to visit in 14 days to get 80 tokens ...

Yea...that part is so hard to calculate. I have been battling a few each day but haven't gotten any tokens today at all. Can be a bit frustrating for sure.

I only park when I don't have a whole lot of energy sources. In the mornings when I collect from all of my daily Ali's, I don't park one. That way I can keep working toward the ghost knight goal too.

Let's not forget about upcoming Gothic Keep/Court event. We don't know yet how it will interfere with our farmhouses visitings.

Yes I know it's early days but I've been tapping like crazy and the drops are just rediculous. I'm mostly interested in the ghost knight and have faught loads of spawns for not many tokens.Yes we have longer to get the knight but if the drop rate stays the same I'm not burning all my time and energy for it.
I think the community event prizes should be better too!! Really it's about time the prizes AND DROPS from prizes equalled the work and resources we put into events!!
I stopped using gems too early on in events because for a while now I've not been sure they will be doable and that I'll get to the end,therefore won't waste gems. Also if I feel the event is too greedy I won't gem! I've saved a lot of money lol.
I spend when I feel it's worth it!
