Tips about the Event

* all of the game mechanics of how to play a leaderboard are on the various screens in your game. I'll load them later.

* The Magic Forge can help you make 3 crafts to boost your points if you want to.

* The more points you gain, the further you move up the Goal slider. If you reach certain milestones, you get a prize (details below).

* There are only 20 players in a group, randomly selected around your level.


Troubleshooting!
If you do not want your facebook picture showing on the leaderboard ranking screen, (in your game) go into Menu/SettMenu/in your game and turn off Facebook. There is no reason to have this feature turned on anyway as Castle doesn't have a FB interface. Any problems, please post in the Bugs Forum, not in thread.

Thanks for posting about this!

have you fought any monsters since your enfeld disappeared? I just did that and a soon as I collected a shield, I got the pop-up about the prize. I've put it back on my board, hopefully it stays there!

* It looks like this may not be a 'proper' monster hunt as there is no special animal to go for.

* You can still collect tokens from Lorelei's Fountain and go on daily monster hunts goals for the Enfield, Fangbeasts, blue Dire boar (chop a dead tree) and purple Glimmer Golem (from horses).

Monster hunt. Yay.

Leader board... Boo.

I will play the beast hunt. But I WILL NOT participate in the competitive leaderboard event. Include me out.

Ah, gee! It's a Leaderboard event disguised as a Monster Hunt. Really disappointing.

I'll be working on the Monster Hunt but I thought you learned already S8, we don't like being pitted against each other!

You must be trying to run off players.

Here's what the Enfield tokens are used for:

43573 43575 43574

The chisel only takes 15 minutes but you only get 15 points compared to the other 2 crafts that are 4 hours @ 30 & 40 points

Not to mention the fact that I spent HUNDREDS of energy fighting monsters before the leaderboard popped up and I have gotten ZERO credit for those hits even though I was supposed to get one point per monster.

And S8, please get rid of the point pop up that covers up the monster hit buttons.

S8 figures the woodland event, pitting players against each other with different material requirements, was embraced and loved so much by the community that now there's a leader board event.

Best mktg department ever!

ALSO, once again, the featured monster does not drop tokens for the trade wagon.

I don't see anywhere to use the special fox monster tokens. What are they for?

04-12-18, 11:35 AM
I just crafted a Chisel and did not get a single point....nevermind now I see the deliver button sorry but why is the timer for the Hammer the same as Sword but you get less points.. not to mention the disparity of the 15 minute timer to the 2 with 4 hours.. huh??

Look closely... the little fox at the end of the 2300 points, is different then the one the top 2 winners get.

You can see the difference in the wings.


And sweet! The guy in first place on my leader board has over 300 points already, I have 13. (and the event has been live for 42mins?)

FUn!
MOo!

Oh, and listen to PrincessCelestian - "And S8, please get rid of the point pop up that covers up the monster hit buttons." ... that's just poor thinking.

Im confused as to what the Enfield tokens are for? So, it looks like we have to rank 1st or 2nd to get the Enfield. If we dont rank, we can earn a baby Enfield with points. Where do the tokens come in? I've never encountered this type of event in castle story before, I don't like that we cant all get the special animal :(

Hmm... I wonder....if the 2 of us blow the rest of the board away and try our best to tie at the end, will we both get the First Place prizes??? lol

Im confused as to what the Enfield tokens are for? So, it looks like we have to rank 1st or 2nd to get the Enfield. If we dont rank, we can earn a baby Enfield with points. Where do the tokens come in? I've never encountered this type of event in castle story before, I don't like that we cant all get the special animal :(


Where do you see that we can be able to get a baby Enfield?

Check the goals tab and tap the last prize - it's a fox - 2300 points

Ok, last year, when the leaderboard event kicked off, I was on vacation, and I only half-blanked paid attention... so I got some questions about this:

I realize it pits player against player in groups of 20... but what\who chooses the 20...

I think I remember my group of 20 changed several times. Am I remembering correctly? If so, how often does the 20 group change, what causes the group to change, what causes the group to remain the same? When does the group lock and the members stop shuffling?

And looks like we can double our points for gemming every 2 hours?

When The little flag pops up and covers one of the attack options during a fight, sometimes says 2 points... but when I watch the numbers count up on the right side of the screen, it just adds +1. ?

Also when fighting I suggest fighting SLOWLY. Start fight w\ 12 points. I fought one fox, pressed one of the three attack buttons 13 times, and twice I saw the 2 Points flag. (Total should be 25... 27 if I believe the 2 pt flag.)

My total at the end was 23.

Right now my head hurts, but give me a day, I'll get some math wrapped around this.

Any insight ya'all have is appreciated.

MOo!

I dont think we actually get 2 points/1 hit when the flag says that. Mine just seems to combine multiple points in one flag when fighting quickly. Sometimes it even showed 3 points, but it always equaled my hits

Hey, Chief. I watch the beast I'm attacking & see a tiny shield each time I hit it. Look at its feet. The little shield flies over to the goal icon on the right. The popup doesn't keep up very well I think.
You should be getting a point(shield count) for every hit on the beast. The trouble there is does it give 2-3 points with a critical hit (1 whack but that takes off 2 or 3 from total hits)? Haven't taken the time to actually keep track that closely.

Edit: Just had a critical hit (2) & only got 1 point added to my shields. So You get 1 point per whack on the beast. So if the purple golem takes 70 hits to kill you get 70 points (not 90).

If you collect enough points from battling monsters, you earn prizes. The final prize is an enfield, not to be confused with the enfield that the top two point holders get at the end of the leaderboard event. All of this is separate from the monster hunt that is also going on.

Which brings me to my reason for visiting the forums......way to go S8 (heavy sarcasm). Forcing us to participate in a leaderboard by combining it with a monster hunt. I am guessing that is the only way you will get a large amount of participation so you can convince yourselves we actually want to do leaderboards. Oh, I so hope we get a survey after this one from survey monkey. I have respect for players with a competitive spirit, but there is a reason I choose NOT to play competitive games. I don’t care for them at all.

To my neighbors and other forum users, I am not competing in the leaderboard. I am participating in the monster hunt and as of now I am in second place only because I am hunting monsters. So , if you’re in a group with me (bingo chips) I may briefly be on top, but if you pass me up, rest assured I’m not going for the top spot.

LawyerLynn
04-12-18, 12:19 PM
I don't like it when the prizes are chests with a chance of various things. Some people will get good prizes and others will just get coins! Another way for S8 to treat players randomly.


EDITED TO ADD:
FYI: The Skunkupine Dummy is just a decoration (no timer), so I assume that the other dummies are also just decorations.

Ah, gee! It's a Leaderboard event disguised as a Monster Hunt. Really disappointing.

I'll be working on the Monster Hunt but I thought you learned already S8, we don't like being pitted against each other!

You must be trying to run off players.

Here's what the Enfield tokens are used for:

43573 43575 43574

The chisel only takes 15 minutes but you only get 15 points compared to the other 2 crafts that are 4 hours @ 30 & 40 points

I agree, I will only play the "monster hunt" part.
But... I'm baffled!!!
I thought it was clearly stated that players do not like "leaderboard" and ranking games!

I can NOT play against my neighbors.

Boo Storm8!! Bad decision! We all said we hate leaderboards! :mad:
Castle Story is about cooperation not competition.
This should be a regular monster hunt and the Enfields should be available for craft in the MRC or Trade Wagon.

Why is it so hard to give the players what we want?!?
More main story!! There are several quests hanging midstory - please resolve these!
More expansions!! We always need more space
Animated buildings!! You can animate animals quiet easily - why haven’t we had animated buildings in forever??
I refuse to spend money until you listen to our requests.

Has anyone gotten milk from a glimmer golem? I have fought 5 so far and have not gotten a single milk. I only need 7 more milk to clear the baby golem goal, and I was hoping to do that next monster hunt....so I guess that would be now. :-/

I am also disappointed that there isn’t anything new in either the trade wagon or the MRC. It almost makes me want to skip the hunt as well, but I’m trying for that milk. Surely there’s a female golden out there somewhere!

Actually, I don’t understand I looked through these pages and saw so many complaints. If you don’t like playing leaderboards don’t pay attention to it. Play only monster hunt. As for me, I’m happy that we have monster hunt and I don’t care about leaderboard. Maybe I will participate in leaderboard and usually I don’t have neighbors in leaderboards. When I open discussion of castle story I see too many complaints even I’m tired of them. I started taking part in discussions more seldom.

I don’t mind the leaderboard. I think it was a clever idea to mix it with a monster hunt. You get tokens and shields from taking out monsters, it’s like two events in one only you’re doing once the work and get more rewards. Even if you don’t want to focus on the leaderboard you’ll still get a prize in the end. I’m happy with this event. What I dislike the most about events is timed items from which you have to collect every few hours. I like to be able to sit down and put in time when I have time and be able to catch up.

I am currently in first place with 471 tokens. I find it funny because I have just been fighting golems for milk. Once I run out of horses for the day, I suppose I’ll fall behind. When my horses recharge, I’ll fight again. Unfortunately, this will make me look like I’m trying to stay on top when what I’m actually trying to do is craft another armored direboar. I have stopped fighting the foxes, and have no plans to craft any of those weapons, except maybe a set of souvenirs.

Guess I’ll be sending messages to those in my group to let them know this.

Concerning LB, I might just see if I can get a few prizes off of it. Will see if it's worth the effort.

Came to post what you've said! Tried 2 glimmer golems and no milk. All that energy on milkless golems, and you fought 5 of em.
Think we always have something new in wagon or mrc for monster hunts but hey not this time..unless maybe they add something in a day or two.
Good luck with milk. I need around same as you.
I hate leaderboards!!!
The dummy prizes are just that!!.....DUMMY PRIZES lol
I am sooo disappointed in this!
I'm pleased about monster hunt but I'm not getting many monsters except from cows for the prizes but they don't give monster tokens and when I spawn a fangbeast theres no staff tokens.
Ok moan over...for now.

Edit....golems now dropping milk but only one per golem...occasionally 2.
Btw when I tried spring horse? ( the one that dropped golem milk out of season as a bug) it didn't spawn a golem.

Nothing new in MRC. Drats.

I did this. (Was it with you??) Hopefully you get an honest partner but it works if so.

I know I'm in the minority but I like this leaderboard. The prizes looks nice for everyone, not an insane difference though only the top two get the animal. That's ok though because it gives people without gems a chance to get it, and the prizes for every other place are still decent. I like the fun of making all the trade in pieces and then gambling next Wednesday to see if I made the right ones, turning them all in at once. Unless I make a pact to take 1st/2nd with someone, then I won't do that of course.

If you don't like it, ignore it and just play to win the baby animal on the independent track.

I'm just so disappointed in S8 right now. I was so excited to do a hunt so I could get my third Armored Direwolf but now... The thing about these LBs is that the animal at the end is never worth the effort. I have both animals (I made sure I tied for 2nd with all who wanted) and the Spring Dragon rarely drops gems and energy, the regular Dragons have a much better rate and the Jousting Stteed from the other LB is just a regular horse that drops swords...wow. Wonder what amazing prizes this new animal will drop, after all it's not like we have any idea right now.

But more than that, I come to this game for the community and this event does not encourage that, it's trying to literally pit us against one another which is what I really take offense to and don't like.

If I want to compete then there are million games out there geared towards that but very few geared toward community. CS was meant to be a casual game that centered on the story and for years it was and I enjoyed every moment of it. However, if this is the direction S8 is planning on going with this game, they'll have to go without me.

If you don't like it, ignore it and just play to win the baby animal on the independent track.

It?s really not giving people without gems a chance to get it though. To win a leaderboard, I have always had to use gems either on speeding crafts or the boosts.

Ok, minimal gems? I don’t pay 400 for anything other than the one alicorn I saved up for over the course of a year. I do spend a handful here and there to speed things up, I earn them through trades and adventures.

Hey, Chief. I watch the beast I'm attacking & see a tiny shield each time I hit it. Look at its feet. The little shield flies over to the goal icon on the right. The popup doesn't keep up very well I think.
You should be getting a point(shield count) for every hit on the beast. The trouble there is does it give 2-3 points with a critical hit (1 whack but that takes off 2 or 3 from total hits)? Haven't taken the time to actually keep track that closely.

Edit: Just had a critical hit (2) & only got 1 point added to my shields. So You get 1 point per whack on the beast. So if the purple golem takes 70 hits to kill you get 70 points (not 90).

43576

Yea Miss Lorrainne... I was still clicking too fast\counting too fast.

I took my own advice and went slow and it is counting per hit. Doesn't matter the amount of damage caused or attack rewards received.

MOo all ya'all,

Ok, despite the liking leaderboard or NOT liking leaderboard... explain something to me and my group of 20.

The one in first place that is about 1500 points ahead of 2nd place 300ish. Has well over 50 Alicorns, and it looks like another 50 Dailies... (I have 2 Ali's and 20ish Dailys) so ...

S8 how do you pick the who goes in what group... cause this certainly comes across as I have absolutely no chance to even try.

Where is, at the very least, my illusion that winning is possible?

I've lost a 6 day event in the first 5 hours.

It's duhmazing.

I gave up playing Dragon Story because I dislike these challenge events. I just visited the leader of my section & they have the Love Shack & 30+ Alicorns. People who don't have a Love Shack can't compete against that. It would be better to group the 'have's' (a Love Shack) together & the 'have nots' together so it would be a more even playing field. Very unfair!

Do you think the decorative dummies might be used for a later event? All the events I've participated in so far have had items with some sort of utility, some of which exceed the event duration (still making those free Loveshack walls since I didn't have the fully upgraded Loveshack).

I haven't played as long as ya'll so I'm just curious if ya'll have any additional insight?

Quick question: When I started the hunt, I had the daily goals for the Glimmer Golem, the Blue Direboar, the Fangbeast and the Enfield but I didn't see any of them offering a +10 energy crate as a prize. Did I miss it or are we not getting that reward offered this time?

Woodland Bull also spawned an Enfield. Not that I’m trying for those. Lol. Hit it by accident.

Don’t like LBs. Dragon Story has them. Going to quit that game. Used to get dragons and habitats. Now you need to spend gems to get to the end prize. So not too crazy about this. But I do like monster hunts.

Season 5 training Dummy. Did not spawn a monster, will there still be a “chance” during this hunt?

My level 5 jousting arena did NOT spawn monster. No monster was on my board, is this still a guaranteed drop during this monster hunt or a glitch?

If you collect enough points from battling monsters, you earn prizes. The final prize is an enfield, not to be confused with the enfield that the top two point holders get at the end of the leaderboard event. All of this is separate from the monster hunt that is also going on.

Which brings me to my reason for visiting the forums......way to go S8 (heavy sarcasm). Forcing us to participate in a leaderboard by combining it with a monster hunt. I am guessing that is the only way you will get a large amount of participation so you can convince yourselves we actually want to do leaderboards. Oh, I so hope we get a survey after this one from survey monkey. I have respect for players with a competitive spirit, but there is a reason I choose NOT to play competitive games. I don?t care for them at all.

To my neighbors and other forum users, I am not competing in the leaderboard. I am participating in the monster hunt and as of now I am in second place only because I am hunting monsters. So , if you?re in a group with me (bingo chips) I may briefly be on top, but if you pass me up, rest assured I?m not going for the top spot.

Ditto to my neighbours. I HATE leaderboards, and will not be competing. But I doubt it will be an issue in my group anyway; three competitors have already streaked ahead. I dislike the whole principle of leaderboards in that, if you are in a group with gem spenders and players that can be online for long hours, it doesn?t matter how well you play. You will not win. That?s so unfair, and not why I downloaded a game where I thought I would play only against myself.

newzealander
04-12-18, 10:41 PM
I did this. (Was it with you??) Hopefully you get an honest partner but it works if so.

I know I'm in the minority but I like this leaderboard. The prizes looks nice for everyone, not an insane difference though only the top two get the animal. That's ok though because it gives people without gems a chance to get it, and the prizes for every other place are still decent. I like the fun of making all the trade in pieces and then gambling next Wednesday to see if I made the right ones, turning them all in at once. Unless I make a pact to take 1st/2nd with someone, then I won't do that of course.

I?m glad someone will enjoy this event, but I?m curious how people can win leaderboards without gems. Maybe I have just been unlucky with my groups, but I usually see the first few players using a lot of boosts, and getting numbers that are impossible without gems.

Those unicorns are great! I've already got my limit of 4, and now trying to decide to get another Armoured Direbeast. The one I have drops 40 energy pretty often. But they take a lot of gold tokens. Aargh. Concerning LB, I might just see if I can get a few prizes off of it. Will see if it's worth the effort.
But I'm pretty sure I have some of those monster dummies in my inventory somewhere.

End prize another pet baby. That's all I have to say about that... to be nice.
And not expansion permits, they are trade tickets. Not looking good.

Can you buy alicorn from monster hunt coins? I don?t have that possibility with the wagon... or do I have to be in a higher level to get more options to trade/ make in the trade wagon??

Are there low, medium and high level requirements????
High Level: Level 46+ Goals: (these are mine at L50)
40 points | 1 Enfield trap
75 points | Mystery Chest - contains a chance at energy, golden nuggets, golden apples, rotten cabbages, gold troll tokens, enfield tokens, points or coins
190 points | Skunkupine Dummy (decoration)
380 points | Mystery Chest - as above
570 points | Fangbeast Dummy (decoration)
760 points | Mystery Chest - as above
900 points | Direboar Dummy (decoration)
1300 points | Mystery Chest - as above
1800 points | Troll Dummy (decoration)
2300 points | Enfield Kit - drops are coal, earth wisps, prime cuts, wisp lanterns




Looks like there are different lower level requirements. At level 41, I only need 150 points to get the skunkupine dummy. (I didn't pay attention to the points for the goals I've already done, sorry)

Edit: discovered I can still check points needed for all goals but don't have time to transcribe everything now. Will try to do so tonight.

Not even minimal gems. The first person in my group already has over 4000 points and we are not even through the first 24 hours yet. I have been playing for the monster hunt part. Only getting the enfields when searching for fangbeasts. So then I use those tokens to craft some of the LB crafts. I had about 1700 in hoarded energy yesterday and have gained another 300 or so. I have spent no gems and have TONS of energy giving resources and am just at 2300 points. So unless I spend massive gems to get boosts all through the event, there is no way to catch number 1 in my group. For smaller players with few energy giving resources, it would be well beyond impossible. I honestly think that if LBs had been a part of this game when I first started, I would have soon quit.

I have the same question! Points per token is higher making chisels, but I will run out of iron fast, lol.

I'm a newbie (level 23) and I come to the forum topic looking for this kind of info and tips on how to do the event. Hopefully someone can give us some good advice.

I wish an event monster would drop troll essence because I need it for several things and I only have 2, lol. I can't get glimmer trolls to spawn as easily as fangbeasts etc.

For what it's worth, all 5 of my Enfield spawns were from a regular cow, not gnome/spring/other.

I had a similar experience with the last LBs. I added several great new neighbors in the last one and the most enjoyable part to me was all of us working together to reach the point limit we decided on. When I get some free time later, I plan on visiting those in my bracket and posting to see if anyone wants to work together this time. Just because S8 wants us to compete against one another, doesn't mean we have to do it. I want as many of us players to get the main prize as possible.

I've only been fighting monsters and I'm in the lead also, though I don't expect it to last. Just crafted my third Armored Direwolf so I wiped out my tokens and am just focusing on the Glimmer Golems to build them back up in preparation for the next (hopefully normal) hunt when we get some new animals in the MRC.

Is there anything wrong with points showing on leader board? Mine seems to be messed up. It is not giving points. I’m watching closely, now.

I do the leader boards in Dragon Story all the time, because it’s part of the quest rotations...I won it once and that’s because of the time we did it. I normally play for 6-12 because I can use the food and coins. Same here, the energy box is worthwhile...what are the trade tickets for? Where do we use them.

Already the person in 1st has 1050, second is 440 (but below that everyone is close.

I'm not against a leader board as long as everyone gets a prize for participating. According to the "Prizes" tile, only 20 people will get prizes. I'm not sure how many play CS but judging on my neighbour list, I'd say only about 10%-15% of players will get a prize. Not sure how this is seen as a good idea from a marketing standpoint.

The prize list you see is for everyone in your specific bracket. For example if there are 200 brackets then 200 people win first place, 200 win second and so on. I haven't checked out the prize info yet but I'm pretty sure everyone gets something.

Yes. It's set up so there are just 20 people in each set, so you always appear somewhere on your leaderboard and everyone gets a prize - even if it's just 10,000 coins.

I don't like these leaderboard events. They bring out the worst in me and I prefer Castle Story as a co-operative game where we help eachother rather than being one where we try to get ahead of eachother. That's just me. Good luck to everyone who is trying to progress up the leader board. I'm going to enjoy the monster hunt and getting more gold coins. And if I get a few mystery chests on the way it will be a bonus. I don't care about the dummies and stuff, but I do love a monster hunt.

Personally I love my Unicorns. They give energy, 3-4 dews each, and monster hunt tokens even outside the hunts. Despite I could trade some of my tokens during a recent event (forgot which) I started this hunt maxed on sword and shield tokens, so I could start off exchanging to gold tokens.

But depends on your preferene of course, the armored alicorn has a chance of dropping expansion permits (I think?)

Some didn?t play along though and continued to fight through so a bunch of us ended up with 5-10 trade tickets the one that won was originally in our plan, but she could see others weren?t playing ball so she gem whooped them at the end. I can?t remember exactly how many trade tickets we came away with, but I had fun anyway. So far no-one has responded, I hope it?ll work this time but we?ll see. Strangely at the moment I?m in the lead. Lol.


I had a similar experience with the last LBs. I added several great new neighbors in the last one and the most enjoyable part to me was all of us working together to reach the point limit we decided on. When I get some free time later, I plan on visiting those in my bracket and posting to see if anyone wants to work together this time. Just because S8 wants us to compete against one another, doesn't mean we have to do it. I want as many of us players to get the main prize as possible.

I've only been fighting monsters and I'm in the lead also, though I don't expect it to last. Just crafted my third Armored Direwolf so I wiped out my tokens and am just focusing on the Glimmer Golems to build them back up in preparation for the next (hopefully normal) hunt when we get some new animals in the MRC.

I am wondering if this is the reason S8 connected the leaderboard to the monster hunt this time around. Last time it was easy to get to a certain number of points and stop. This time, many players will probably be reluctant to stop hunting and of course, hunting adds points. Seems like a pretty effective way to circumvent player cooperation, IMO.

Ironically I am in second place right now, and because I just crafted an armored direwolf, I am fighting as many golems as I can to restock gold tokens. The side effect is that I am staying near the top of the leaderboard whether I want to or not. I hate that it makes me appear to be competing, but at the same time, I want those gold troll tokens, so I don’t want to stop hunting. I do fully expect someone to gem it at the end and pass me up....and that’s fine with me. I just hope no one feels like they have to spend a ton of money to do so.

I don't understand how to delete my Facebook image. When I go into the app settings there is no option to log out of Facebook. Can someone advise please. Should I be going into my phone settings. If so where. Thanks.

I wish someone would honestly answer this question. I do not have a Facebook account any longer & a picture still shows up. If Castle Story has no Facebook interface how does it continually show up on LB? Additionally, there is no “Facebook Off” in settings. There is only a Facebook login in button.

I'm with you I'm going to go get my 2300 points and then stop but the temptation of those gold coins is really hard to ignore! the one thing saving me is I checked out some of my neighbors who have far less alicorns than I do and its not right and not fair for them to be in my group. So I wont do that!

Does anyone else ignore pretty much the rest of their king/queendom during monster hunts? I have collected no crops and only collect from items that may provide energy, gems or mermaid items. Just checking to see others' strategies.
PS - I'm not concerned, at all, about the leaderboard portion. I want to earn gold tokens to get more energy producing critters.

Me! I am only fighting glimmer golems, the monster from the cave and the boar once a day.

Although I do have 2 quests that I'm working on (both have actions with long timers). Otherwise, energy sources, adventures and monsters. Old Thomas and libraries (leveling up Wizard school) and Lorelei's fountain are also being collected from.

This is why I hate the leaderboard! Please don't quit and hang in there and understand that the prize might not be that great! having been a winner on one of these I was really disappointed in the prize! the main prize really are the gold coins from the monster hunt which you can get prizes from like the alicorns that can give you daily energy!

Thinking the energy she might rarely drop will be 5 like our alicolts and dragons that's my opinion but,your right on the stingy 2 energy drops ,

Those are the stats for my leaderboard and I'm the one with 2390 points. BUT, I only got that high yesterday to win the fox kitten. I don't have the time to keep fighting golems, so the rest of my leaderboard can pass me now. Good luck!

For a monster hunt the weekend warrior won't be of a great benefit, however it is good to harvest other goodies and go for some gold nuggets.

For a monster hunt the weekend warrior won't be of a great benefit, however it is good to harvest other goodies and go for some gold nuggets.

The first step looks just like the challenge from last weekend, so it costs 45 energy to do, then get back 30.
Step 2 takes 30 energy to do if it's the same as last time, and I chopped 20 rocks, five big (60 hit) trees and everything in my kingdom, so probably around 1000 energy. Monsters are a lot slower, so you'd probably only use around about 500 in ten minutes (if your connection doesn't get glitchy).

I think I'll just park an animal and do rocks and reefs.

There is a thread about it. Short answer: you don't continue to use up your usual refillable energy.


I didn?t want to keep dragging the main thread off topic. People there were talking about storing energy.

Now from what I understood this means collecting from your Alicorns every day and storing that energy up.

But surely that stops your energy being refreshed ever two hours? Am I missing something?

It was incredibly annoying when some people broke away right towards the end. This did lead a couple of us to go off in pursuit and catch them up. All round nasty! This time I couldn't care less about the leaderboard and co-operation and stopping at a certain point wouldn't work for me. I'm trying to gather as many gold coins as I can so I can get the armoured direwolf. Anyway I'm waaaay down the board already due to being at work all day.

Without careful planning, it's way too easy to complete these three steps while doing your first ten minute rush.
Either park a beast, and don't go for tokens, or be careful about avoiding crops.

I?m glad someone will enjoy this event, but I?m curious how people can win leaderboards without gems. Maybe I have just been unlucky with my groups, but I usually see the first few players using a lot of boosts, and getting numbers that are impossible without gems.

Maybe I've been lucky in the groups I was placed in, but only once did I have someone zoom past everyone else super quickly and I figured I'd just play and see what happens.

For this go round, I had a bit of energy stored from slowing down towards then end of the last event and saving up my daily alis and wizard schools with a few check ins. So I played for maybe 20 minutes last night using 200 energy or so focusing on the cows and enfields, plus the dire boar and glimmer golem. I checked in this morning and did three glimmer golems with my energy from 3 adventures + wizard schools. Then this afternoon the weekend warrior challenge came up. After doing that, I'm ranked #1 with 1206 points right now...

I plan on putting the game down for most of the weekend to spend with my family and do some work so I may get tanked, but if I could probably get a couple hundred a day if I checked in 2 or 3 times and just did glimmer golems.

I'm not stressing about it; if I get it, cool. But I think it's laid out well and including the weekend warrior challenge made it more fun.

I'm about 10 tokens away from my 4th Armoured Direwolf also.... which annoys me because I was dead set against getting any more after the first one only coughed up 20 energy at least 90-95% of the time. Since there has been nothing better in the Major Ripoff Center for the past couple of hunts I've begrudgingly been saving for more, even though 85 tokens is completely outrageous for something that is most often 20 energy.

All my requirements were the same as the last weekend warrior, but this time I got 10 minutes followed by 20 minutes, so 30 minutes altogether.

(Well, 9min 20sec and 19min 20sec by the time I had force closed and reopened the game!)

Last week, I only got 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes, so wasn’t expecting to get 30 minutes this time! It was quite exhausting! Haha :)

Dwayne the Wizard counts as tending an animal in the third step of the Weekend Warrior ;)

My unlimited energy sessions this time were a lot more glitchy. I lost a couple of minutes of unlimited energy in each session before the game settled down. I only managed to slay a couple of Glimmer Golems in each session. The game kept resetting, and then also accidentally hitting the shield points popup instead of the left combat button sends you into the Leader Board which then wastes more time.

I have been watching my leader board. It gives me the correct total then goes back to the number before I added the sword. Sometimes it shows up later, but I?m not sure I am getting the correct credit! I have the boost and want the double points! Anybody else notice This?

Dude leaderboard is a joke.. just concentrate on monster hunt

Dwayne the Wizard counts as tending an animal in the third step of the Weekend Warrior ;)

My unlimited energy sessions this time were a lot more glitchy. I lost a couple of minutes of unlimited energy in each session before the game settled down. I only managed to slay a couple of Glimmer Golems in each session. The game kept resetting, and then also accidentally hitting the shield points popup instead of the left combat button sends you into the Leader Board which then wastes more time.


I did fall for that sadness.. i was 1.20 seconds lost when it finally started.. S8 is trying to patent the words Fail and Glitch..
And peope say report it to support. Reporting a glitch or fail to S8 is the same as finding out who farted.. they wont take the blame

Why is there no symbol or countdown timer for unlimited energy? This is very confusing and misleading on how exactly it works. Mine only seemed to refill like 3 times and then poof it was over. Sure didn’t accomplish as much as I had hoped

9000 points is crazy. But doing your 4th Armoured Direwolf is pretty spectacular IMO. I think you'll be happier with that than a token trophy. I can't seem to get past 1 Direwolf.

I love my direwolves. They have been pretty much my only focus for the last few hunts. Excited about my last one!!!

Actually, it isn’t that they won’t take the blame, they’ll just send you their canned response ... “we were unable to reproduce the glitch/error/fault/etc.”

Force close your game & log back in, your previous energy should be there.

My treasure chests were

1) 5000 gold coins
2) not sure....I think only coins or possibly a few LB points
3) 5000 gold coins
4) 10 LB points

The dummies are staying in storage. They’re not very impressive as far as prizes go.

But I do have to admit, I love the animation on the enfield kit. It is super cute.

There is supposed to be. Where your energy counter is, there should instead be an unlimited sign with a countdown timer.

There is a glitch now, or maybe it’s a deliberate design, where your energy is refilled to 40 with the usual 3-minute timer running down. Once that 40 points of energy runs out, it’ll get refilled when the countdown reaches a point between 10 seconds and 1 minute. This goes on for the duration of the 10 minutes of the “unlimited”energy.

I had this glitch for the first set of unlimited energy. In the second set, this glitch ran for the first 5 minutes. My game then “lost connection” and I lost 2 minutes 30 seconds while the game attempted to “reconnect”. When it finally did, the correct “unlimited” words and countdown timer were displayed but with just 2 minutes and 30 seconds left on the clock.

Once you get the Congratulations pop up that says you've received the unlimited energy, immediately force close the app and when you open it again you'll have the standard full energy bar with 'unlimited' written in it and beneath it the timer. It usually takes my app a solid 30 seconds so I actually get 9 minutes and 30 seconds of free energy from the goals.

What confused me on the unlimited energy goals was that the dialogue for the 2nd unlimited package comes up even before you start your 1st unlimited package and you may get the feeling that those goals need to be done right then, instead of waiting. I've found that I have to be very careful and do only one thing at a time on the 1st set, then ignore any dialogue, then force close to start your unlimited session. Then work on the second set of goals, force close and start your second session.
And then force close again to get back the energy you started with if you had over 40 energy. WHEW!
Just nuts!
Oh! Also....Don't tap anything that may pertain to 2nd set of goals while doing your 1st session.

I mean seriously?

Adding: I may have missed another needed force close in this whole process somewhere. 😳😳

How is it that we're in Season 12 of the Monster Hunts and they haven't given us a trade for our Staff tokens yet? Obviously excluding the Troll Trade, I mean. If we're getting close to full on Shields and Swords we have trades to get rid of them but I've been drowning in Staff tokens for the last several hunts and it drives me crazy that I'm essentially wasting them.

Did you have 20 players in a group from the beginning? Mine had 5 at beginning and it stayed that way till I went to bed yesterday. In the morning it was 11 and now it's 13... I don't really know what to expect now :D

Don't like the LB feature! Competing against neighbors and good friends is just embarrassing! Why not add competitors that are NOT on neighbor list! Really irritating competing against a nbr whose kingdom has less secondary energy. This being an occasion to collect Gold Tokens we are obligated to challenge in order to collect.. and in the meantime have to step on others' feet. Not fair in my opinion. The Hunt is organized badly! and on top of all.. where are new offers in the MRC? What's the Hunt for then? .. the answer is: Collection of Tokens! :mad:

Answering post above.. if players don't check in and result remains '0', after awhile the list automatically changes these non-competitors, as obviously not playing, or chosen not to play. Other names are inserted at the bottom of the list. Once player has made even 1 point.. their name remains on that list.

Advising:
Gold Tokens has a cap 99. So if by anway you have reached this amount your Gold Tokens will be lost, so better craft something, even if you don't need it :( I was not keen on crafting the 2nd Armored DireWolf due to low energy and saving for something new.. but had to craft it in order to continue Tokens collection.. otherwise I would not have had a scope of playing for 5 days. This happened cause nothing new has been offered!

I do excuse with my nbrs involved as have no scope other than 'collecting tokens' and non intentional involvement of messing up of the LB in doing so. Our beloved non-competitive Monster Hunt rules has changed into worst in my opinion.

In our last Hunt this feature was missing too, as I needed it and it was not there. In this Hunt I have low Staff Tokens drops.. so doesn't effect me this time. There's always a difference in type of tokens dropped and their abundance in the various Hunts. I have to try and spawn extra Direboars to be even to craft the Gold Token.

Yep, totally agree. I hate wasting tokens.

S8 is definitely messing with my head with this event. Because I didn't do the last event, I used the time to save energy which I have never done before. So a great start for a monster hunt but means I am looking like I am being competitive in the leaderboard, which I really, really, really do not like. I would far rather leave that to others.

On the positive side, I just got my second armoured direwolf. I will be interested to see how many more gold tokens I can collect, as I still have a heap of energy.

That would make perfect sense, but when I opened the game for the first time, three of us had 0 points and the other two players stayed at 0 for some time. I don't think they would keep two players and throw out the others. Especially only a couple hours after the event started. Or maybe I just don't understand how it works :D

As for the LB, I just don't care about it. I don't have friends in the game and have no idea who's on my neighbour list, so no sentiment here. I checked some of the kingdoms and apparently only one person is my neighbour. If I'll get close by doing normal monster hunt stuff, I'll try to win, if not - that's fine too.

So is there any reason at all to make beast hammer or sword? You get more points for fewer coins if you just make chisels (as long as you have wood and iron).

I haven?t started turning them in yet, but in events past the chisel type spot would not always be replaced by the chisel. You may eventually have three slots asking for hammers.

Also, some of us only check in two or three times a day. I can get 90 points or 30 points... I?d rather make the 45 pt item if I can only make two items a day.


Hope that helps,

Good MOorning all ya'all,

Ya, tying these two events together is\will providing some unintended results.

I dont know about you, but CS is the only game I play rt now, so this is only my 2nd? 3rd LB event? Anyway, I'm working the gold coins, and it makes it look like I'm working the LB like a fat kid works a ice cream cone.

To the 3 LB mates that have the 99 limit Alicorns that I have been "matched" with, I am NOT racing you for first place, I swear.

That makes sense. I contemplated that for an overnight, but I've basically stopped spawning Enfields and am focusing on glimmer golums.

I did notice that I got a "new trade coming soon" in that spot after doing maybe 10 of the,, but very shortly after (minutes), it reappeared and I couldd two more.

Go whack a horse. Any horse... except Alcina. Fight the Golems. Hit the Dead Tree when you can, get a Blue Dire Boar, work your Lair of Beasts and Troll Sparing Pit, ehhh Dire Boar Training Dummy... it's never spawned well for me and spends more time in MY storage, your mileage may vary... and tap your three statues and the Princesses fountain.

Watch your token counts. Make your gold trades when you can. This results in I always have too many Shield tokens. So make a Bronze hunter trade if necessary. I think I've made 16 so far? ... and I know thats low compared to some of the machines we have out there that already have everything in the MRC.

I had the Cooking Camp first.

It really depends on your goals and playing style. The kitchens are vital early in the game and it seems like we never have enough of the food items. But for me, energy was/is my main focus. The MRC offers several unique animals, some always drop energy, some have a chance of dropping energy, all have chances of dropping various, sometimes rare, items (like gold nuggets,apples, etc) that are helpful for playing. (See more about this in the Hub by checking out the thread on monster hunts and info on the MRC)

As a longer term player, many event prizes, and certain buildings when leveled up, have a chance to drop food items. So the extra kitchen becomes redundant after a while. (I still don?t have the cooking camp, and I rarely use my regular kitchens anymore.)

So my advice would be the MRC first, just consider it a long term goal, because you will need more tokens to do the MRC crafts as well.

As for other advice.....try to get that barracks if you can. It allows you to send out an extra adventure every other day (they take two days in the barracks) And do as many adventures as possible. They are great for getting coins, energy, and a few gems, as well as other prizes that add up over time. Lots of benches and such, but also rare prizes that cost gems in the market (like sheep, fruit trees and royal cows).

Best advice, check out the hub. Lots of helpful information there!

Good luck!
