At the rate I'm going I may never get there. Mines and mushrooms not dropping he needed items, chickens are on strike, and skunupines seem to be extinct in my kingdom. Ivy's been reliable, but she's got that 12-hr timer problem

that does stink when our game is magically chosen to have rarer drops!

instead of concentrating on ponds for trolls, i used weekend warrior to get all the red ladies and skunkupines from loadssss of chests, only place they popped up for me (well during free time that is), corn and flowers were worthless. i also put out a bunch of chickens out and red mushrooms only (i have always had better event drops with red ones compared to other mushrooms) and got all mushroom item needed and almost all the chicken ones during warrior too. Mines are another story, still want to know why the other mines are never included in these events! Think we have another warrior event coming up during this event, hopefully drops will be better for you during it and you will be able to stock up on what you need too.

Hmm, do you have a picture of the Troll? Looks like any Plush version has a Plushie version!

Got this little guy from the gifted royal chest I finally cracked open:

4461244613

He dropped 2381 coins (odd amount) but nothing else, wool must be a rare drop which is no bother 'cuz that's what sheep are for after all. Anyway, he is animated but it's subtle and unfortunately just makes it look like he's got a bad case of asthma or is breathing super heavy all the time, lol.

If I remember correctly, this event is red mushrooms only for drops.

Happy to report after only concentrating on event drop items, I need 1 skunkupine and 12 more Ivy visits. As long as I don't tap mines, chickens, ponds and rocks, I will only have 1 extra baron doll and 1 extra plush magic.

Fingers crossed I don't miss too many Ivy collections the next 7 days.

Good luck all. I hope those needing better drop rates find them.

Check the drop next time, if it was tingling you have a heart bonus +20%, also each item overruns adds 15 coins.

And what's the difference between the Plushie and the Plush? Seems like a playing around with words instead of 'real' differences.

Another case is the Toy Thief.. it's the old Troll Thief in every detail who changed handbags! Recycled?!

And while we are on the subject, does "toy thief" mean a thief who steals toys? Or is it a thief that is either very small or in fact a toy himself?

..... Also I broke down and bought the Pet Toy Thief bundle... Shocking I know, lol. But I'm thrilled I did because his inventory card claims he drops Plushie decos! I love it when pets drop decos.

8 hr timer, 32 gems to speed up.


The wool drops are just getting ridiculous at this point!

2nd collection from my Toy Thief was the Blue Dragon which I think you still need the pic of Shibuya, if not, ignore this:

I broke down and got the Toy Thief!
1st collection ... wool
2nd collection ... wool
3rd collection ... wool

Being a 'paid' item I did expect better drops. Hope his future will be more promising otherwise should be sent back to sender for a refund :(

I would say a Thief who steals Toys cause his not smaller than the Troll Thief.. but in my case.. I now say.. he's the one stealing the plush toys that should be mine and leaving only wool for me!

Don't feel bad, Moon, cuz you're not alone.
I've gotten the same, exact, disappointing drops. 3 collections, 3 wool. :/

I broke down and got this for the drops to use in an eventual H'ween display even though I'm not a fan of this event (besides Squire Gema, *WHAT* kids are in our kingdoms to warrant a zombie Toys 4 Tots program in May, anyway!?! Thurston & Sabina don't even have a brat yet.)
Again, we don't have kids! (besides Ivy's baby zoo & an orphanage for invisible kids)...

And in my opinion, Castle Story doesn't NEED kids!

NO KIDS, S8!!!

....and another big fat NOOOOO to $10 items that drop WOOL & not the deco items it SAYS it will drop! Hmphf.

MOo all ya'all,

you may have noticed I've not been as vocal during this event as I have in ones past... But the LB from last time... either fixed or broke me ;)

I log in to check stuff, randomly now, I dont HAVE TO log in every 2 hours... I don't know if I'll even be able to finish this event...

(And Im not worried.) ;)

I still need 2 more Ivy collections to get my Toy Shoppe to Lvl 4, I hope I can do it by tomorrow, but if not... oh well . :)

Thanks S8 for breaking the hold this game had over me,

(Not sarcastic) I really appreciate it.

Had a great three day weekend too, logged in like three times the whole weekend.

Good luck ya'all on finishing this!

All Hail the MOothraki!

I’m happy for the lower level players and what should be an ability to gather wool from multiple sources, since the market doesn’t offer a sheep for coins. Having said that, I stay maxed on wool. I never bought a sheep and have won several sheep from going on adventures and even a few from the daily videos, not to mention we had two events where sheep were rewards, the pastel sheep and gnome sheep. Now all these prizes drop wool as well....how much wool does a person need?!?! Yet we used none of this wool to make these toys or stuff these toys with. No, instead we bash rocks to get stuffed toys???

I fully agree with you...
Another 3 hrs and if the Thief drops wool again I'll give him a punch in the nose so he stops blabbering and looking innocent. I'll call those Moo soldiers to point their cannons toward him and make him drop the toys.. AND the $10!
No kids either please! This is an adult's game! Or maybe adults with a child's mind? :confused:

And let us not forget that we may purchase the final prize in the market right now for the one time only; low, low, cost of 1,000 gems!

Seriously, s8?! I get that being able to purchase a second prize item in the market can be seen as a draw. I, myself, might be tempted to round out my inventory and purchase the second items if only they were worth the gems but they're not. Even if these items go on sale tomorrow for half price (as has been known to happen in events) and I could purchase the Plush Prince+Princess for 500 gems I'd still pass and save my gems for the next sale offer for an older Ali with more reliable drops or even a weekly.

644 coins every 8 hours from the Plush Castle does not merit the price tag of 175 gems in my mind. A player could purchase 4 sheep for that price (also take up the same space on the board) and get other drops included with the rare wool the castle offers. 100 gems for the deco only Red Dragon? Insane!

*sigh* As ever, s8 you've come so close to being awesome but missed the mark by a mile due to greediness. In conclusion, this long time player says YES to ability to purchase event prizes in market, NO to the offensive price-tags and near worthless drops.

I thought all the same things about the exorbitant prices! 100 gems for a deco item? Insane!

As a poster stated during the last goals (a knight for 1400 gems then), 1,000 gems for an item😳...that item better be dropping alis🙄

And to believe I/we paid 10$ for this guy who promised 'plush' drops of all colors! I haven't got a decent drop out of him!

This surely is not a way to make players buy other additions for cash! Not me anyway! Unbelievable but true. Do we have to squeeze him or something to make decent drops? Quite ridiculous!

What I don't understand is why are drops reduced so rare? We know this guy is all programmed! It surely is NOT good publicity and even if did have frequent plush drops.. how could this damage the income of the game?

Or is mine a 'good' 'plush' thief who didn't steal anything and his wool stuffing is coming out from the inside his pockets! Really disappointing!

That?s ridiculous...! I think that when you buy an item for $$$ it should be an extra bounus for the player- the description reads it drops the stuffed plushie toy dragons and wool ... and then possibility for other drops... .. now, if the dragons, it promised to drop, is a super rare drop... how rare are then the other surprised special items?

And really, S8, are stuffed plushie toy dragons going to give the player ?super energy ? or something to be ?ahead? of other players? I think not- s8 should reward those players and give the promised drops and more!

After all the game is for players and by that it should be covering the satisfaction of the ?costumer? ... one would think that was priority ONE!
... it rather seems that they almost trick us instead...

... I did not buy the thief-but the ones who did should be awarded the promised drops more frequently and given more special decorations or materials so that more players would want to buy it!

When was the storyline about the plague that wiped out the skunkupine population? Did I miss that? I can't seem to find any these days. It worries me a lot more than the Troll-doll: that's a guarantee from twice daily visits to Ivy. But I fear come Monday I'll have all those ready and be waiting for Queen dolls.

Might Ivy have a potion for Skunk plague to revive them? Or Old Thomas a spell? I'm too cheap to spend gems.

Have you tried wheat, tomatoes or corn? Those gave me skunkupines; also sugar plants.. and toy chests - isn?t WW tomorrow? Maybe try buying loads of chests and you?ll get some skunkupines hopefully! ❤️❤️❤️

05-31-18, 12:42 AM
65 Tomatoes, one skunk. I have wheat growing now, but I'm maxed on corn and sugar. I've finished the toy chests and got all the plush magic I need: as the skunks there were one every 4-5 chests (80-100 energy) I'd rather go round things I actually need. I'm harvesting shrubs for dark pollen but no skunks there.

It's just a tad frustrating as I know I'll get an aqua there if I go near anything fishy, or a boar if I go to the mines. I blame Ivy capturing one and keeping it prisoner... Err pet. Reckon she's scared them all away.

Ok so I too am highly dissatisfied with my toy thief. It has dropped nothing at all but wool and I don't even need wool. I feel like I have wasted 10 to harvest wool. When will my toy thief start to drop something else. It makes me not want to spend any money on things it is not fair. I don't mind spending but do not like being deceived.

I refuse to spend money or gems on this disappointing event. The plush castle went into storage, since all it gave me was a few coins. I have zero plush toys, which is just as well.

It’s crazy isn’t it?!

I would buy one (just one) at a reduced price though for a chance of a better price ;)

I was extremely lucky with my two royal chests. The first one gave me a Thurston and the second one gave me two plushies - blue dragon and troll.

I understand that not so many of my neighbours did so well.:(

Think it starts 5am Melbourne time.
I'm usually up early (need to reset my circadian rhythm) and have noticed that there is 7(maybe 6) hours left of the weekend warrior by 6am.

I was so surprised, in a very good way, when lorelei showed up (haven?t bought her yet but I will) but for a second I thought it was going to be an amazing event! Oh well maybe there will be mermaids, mystical creatures with the upcoming event!

It worries me a lot more than the Troll-doll: that's a guarantee from twice daily visits to Ivy. But I fear come Monday I'll have all those ready and be waiting for Queen dolls.

Might Ivy have a potion for Skunk plague to revive them? Or Old Thomas a spell? I'm too cheap to spend gems.

Someone mentioned using WW to chop a ton of toy chests. I agree with this strategy. I did it last week and got more than enough queen dolls to finish the event.

Wow...my ?big? individual prize in the royal toy box for reaching the 250 mark...11 swords...about the collection amount for my level 5 toy shoppe. I am beyond underwhelmed.

That's 7 more than I got.

Completely ridiculous. S8 needs to stop random drops and prizes for the same effort.

While continuing to wait on Ivy, Bran and I search for the ever elusive Skunkupine.

Literally, 120 plots of tomatoes, and four 20 chop chests chopped and want to guess the total Skunkupine appeared count?

0 (that's a ZERO)

Days, ago I would have gone off on a rant on how S8 does change the spawn rate percentages despite their lack of insistent denial.

But I am apathetic at best :) To rant I have to care, and heh, it seems I don't as much any more.

I logged in to check on well, I don't honestly know why I logged in other than it used to be a habit for SO long.... getting the morning Ali's, swapping out the crops, setting up the production for the day.

Giddy about the free time I have back.

Thank you again for the Leader Board event!!!!

Royal toy chest (250 sword) prize yielded a purple stuffed dragon (that I don’t want; or any of these other stuffed things) and I think 3 plush swords.... 3.... really?! I will be so glad when this is over. And I hate to be that way but to me, the only positive about this whole ugly event is the building. It actually looks like original castle story stuff. Oh, and the energy crates...

Same "problem." If I put out trees or rocks they'll max in 2 seconds. Halfway through my animals, too. I decided to waste it the old-fashioned way. I'm putting out 27 ponds and fighting every troll thief I strike. I don't need anything, but maybe he'll drop a troll essence or fur, idk. I can dream

I found about 50 cursed reefs in my inventory, so I chopped 20 of those and got some cursed coral. Sometimes the elves ask for it, and I never seem to have enough. And I put out all the things that drop red petals (like withering bush) and maxed out my red petals. Never know ... might need them.

I kinda like this event. Not sure if we're getting anything useful in the end, but enjoying this nonetheless.

On a side note: I just finished the weekend warrior and normally you would get 40 energy after the 10 minutes are over. I noticed (last week and week before also) that the energy counter said 40 and about 10 seconds later 19. Or, after tapping 7 ponds, 15. I thought at first maybe it was because you're tapping like crazy during the 10 minutes, that the game was behind a little and you lost the energy due to unfinished tapping....But...I specifically took care to be finished tapping at the 00.00 minute mark (even tapped "edit") and I still lost the energy (40 -> 19).
It would be nice if the 10 minutes were really 10 minutes and not less than 6, due to connectivity problems (not on my end!). Last week I was lucky, trying to get in the game for about 10 minutes, but fortunately there were 7 minutes left on the clock when I finally got in. I had the "Castle story is an online game"-message about 5 times then. Tonight I got it 3 times and less than 6 minutes were left.
Kingdom #2 just crashed with 5 minutes left (with the swipe and collect method). That one never crashes...And 40 energy going down to 27 almost immediately while finished tapping. Second round: 40 -> 26. Definitely finished tapping before 0 seconds. Weird.
Even with all the problems, the weekend warrior is extremely helpful. Looks like I'm going to make it, but will have to wait for Ivy (8 more collections to go).

Edit: I'm not sure the quick collect method saves a lot of time during the weekend warrior. I'm gettting a brown screen for at least 8-10 seconds and after that I still have to wait for all the items to be collected.

@Andro45

I've found that when doing quick collect during WW, I have to make sure to collect after every 40-60 taps. If I wait longer than that to quick collect it freezes up for nearly a full minute. Others have noted the same thing but it seems as though each device is different as to how many taps is ideal for the quick collect to work to our advantage. I can't recall the numbers but this was definitely discussed in the WW thread as was the issue of the 40 energy given after WW. On my device, if I use any of the 40 energy from the bar, it is then subtracted from my total energy once it's restored but for others the 40 energy seems to act as a bonus.

Quick collect is a way of collecting a bunch of items at once rather than the standard tap item A, collect drops, tap item B, collect drops and so on.

To quote the HUB help/information post which is very helpful: https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?98066-Castle-Story-Help-and-Information-for-new-players

7. Can I collect items quickly / automatically?
Yes, there are a couple of ways to collect automatically: Click all items to be collected, then
i) click on the "Menu/Social" then close the "Social" page. Items are placed in your inventory right away! Or
ii) Pull down the notification bar then push up your notification bar it will also automatically collect everything you had clicked. (iOS) or
iii) Double click the home screen and then go back into your game via the thumbnail (iOS)

For WW I had about 9 free Ocean Reefs in storage so I got them all out & chopped them, plus some anenomes. I bought about 5 Cursed Reefs, made sure i didn't have a monster parked, and fought Marmoseas. Now got nearly all my venom for the next upgrade to lvl 6. To keep it on topic, I too have done everything else for event & now waiting for 4 more collections from Ivy, but I chopped a couple of toy boxes to get rid of them.

I don't think this has been mentioned before.. but once you've upgraded the Toy Shoppe to 6th:

X-Eyed plush dollies don't drop anymore.
Crafts disappear from crafting positions.
Event related offers are still available in the Market.
Toy Thief (sales item) still drops Plushies amongst wool. (more wool than plushies though lol!)

Can't beat that.. lol! My method came only from Rock chopping and mostly Chest chopping. They all came in. Plots were not working for me either, nor other usual places.
I see that animals to be spawned during event come from places to do with the events. Not the usual places as outside events.

Dont know if it has been updated but the lower requirements, for me anyway (level 34), was six of each and no plush skunkupines to upgrade the toy shop to last level.

As for WW - I am only level 34, and have loads of expansions to do and also a list of goals some that takes forever... since I was already finished with the event I used the free energy to fill up on everything you get from trees and rocks (wood and stone fills up fast, but not sap and coal feks).. so was great for me even though I didn?t need any materials for the event.

06-02-18, 05:14 AM
In the beginning I bought a Toy Thief which the description was vague as to what will drop from him. It was only wool. Great just what I needed. Then a purple plush dragon dropped. I placed it next to the purchased red and yellow ones. Then my game reset itself and my purple dragon was gone :( I checked storage but not there. Not a big deal but annoying since it was the only interesting thing I got from the toy thief which apparently was a waste of gems. That’s the frustrating part.

I wasn't able to do WW last weekend due to an out of state trip to visit relatives, but I was still able to complete the task (almost). I still have two more Ivy collections and crafting before upgrading to level 6, but I have 4 days so no problem. When WW showed up yesterday, I didn't do it. No need. They've been helpful for past tasks, and I'm sure would have helped if I could have done the one last weekend. It's still possible to finish early without it though. I was able to get skunkupines from chopping the chests. Nothing else seemed to spawn them.

In past community events there have been 3 tiers for players. I think you'd likely be in the mid range up to L40. I've changed post 1 to say 6 of each gift. It's so helpful to have players post different level requirements as there are far more players who visit as guests and look at what's needed but don't post.

Figured I'd post my drops from the Prince+Princess:

1st collection: 1000 coins, Wool, Earth Wisp, Simple Feast, 2 energy
2nd collection: 1000 coins, Wool, Earth Wisp, Light Armor, 4 energy
3rd collection: 1000 coins, Wool, Earth Wisp, Hearty Feast, 2 energy

Feedback for s8:
PROS - I think that all the items with high timers (16 hr and up) should have multiple drops and the coins they drop should be significant. The Prince+Princess tick both of those boxes so I'm happy in that respect.

CONS - While I appreciate the fact that they drop feasts, it would've been nice if they dropped feasts other than Simple and Hearty. I only say this because the last dozen items that were released and drop feasts all drop the same two feasts so at this point it's getting a little redundant. Also, though I think the creepy dead eye thing is fine, lots of players weren't so keen on it. My small issue with the visual of the prizes is that they don't really fit in with everything else in our realms. There are so many great characters that have been introduced over the years both story line and event based so it would be nice if we could go back to them and continue building on their stories in future event.

not necessary to squeeze in collections.. there's still 1day 20hrs+ of collections to be done. community prize is only at 57% I see this morning.. I'm hoping for enough crown rewards to obtain the Guard Walker. you'll get for sure the Prince & Princess the next round.

Is anyone getting Plush Dragons when you collect from the Toy Thief? I bought the Toy Thief but all I have gotten is 15 coins after 8 hours. I only bought it so I could get the Plush Dragons so 15 coins is very disappointing. I have collected several times in the last few days. Paying $9.95 for it was really another rip-off S8. You should be ashamed to do that to your players!

Completed it 2 hours ago. did zero weekend warrior. Spent zero gems. Missed out on Ivy a few times. But still made it. The 100 swords for leveling to level 6 helped me hit 631 swords so my last collection got me over 650. Glad to not have to grow trees. i must say I didn't thought i wanted to do 8 of each plushie but it ended up to be not that difficult

My first drop from the plushie couple was a lantern. Very happy with that. Hope it stays that way, but in the past the good drops kinda faded away.

I was thinking the same thing. These forums use to be 100pages long and the last few have made it over 30 pages. I think people know that S8 doesn?t listen or care and they are going to keep churning out stuff to cater to gem spenders. Unfortunately, some of these gem items have been kind of a rip-off.

Annoyed about the weekDAY warrior. What use is that to those of us who have to work? Plus, I haven't even fed my daily allies for a couple of days since I finished. I still have mermaid goals, but those are slow going and expensive in coin.

I thought the point was a boost to celebrate the weekend, and a leg up with the goal that started Thursday. I can see the point of moving it to benefit different time zones or even lifestyles. But putting it so you can't use it for a timed goal makes it worthless.

I just woke up to the crowns prize and ‘weekday warrior’ got 11 hours left, well 12 when I woke up. Not participating in it. It sounds ridiculous but I’ve only got 5,000,000 left after the excruciating prices of the mermaid stuff and I had 23,000,000 before it arrived. I’ll be chopping cursed reefs for pleasure when I’ve got extra energy and when I haven’t exhausted all my coin producing items. I’ve also got to work. Like most of us. I could arrange my kingdom and get everything ready for Fridays but this won’t be my main focus today. Strangely, a few days ago after I’d defeated Heska for the first time I thought I won’t be participating in ‘weekend warrior’ because I’ve mostly got all mermaid items at capacity. Apart from I think the orange and blue coral. And I had wasting energy and continually getting the black flag. So I’m already find with this decision.

Wednesday is usually date night for us after work. So chances are, I will NEVER play weekday warrior. I noticed it so late last night that I was headed to bed. Honestly I hadn?t even looked at CS almost all day. I have well over 4000 energy at the moment saved up because I have had nothing to do for 10 days now. And I am not that overly thrilled about more pirates. I used to be so obsessed with this game that I played it constantly. I think S8 has managed to cure me of my obsession with its game. Thanks S8! I am now a recovering CS addict.

Sitting it out,too. I don?t want to loose my 920 energy I have saved up for tomorrow.
And I agree, it has been really quiet around here. I personally am burned out on this kind of event, especially since I don?t like the prizes. Weird, creepy things, which look out of place. Just my personal opinion.

I can understand sitting it out if you don't need to stock up on anything but the WW goals don't affect your stored energy. I always start with more than 40 energy and I've never lost any due to WW. It looks like you do once it's finished but after a force close it's all back.

I've only been logging in once a day to collect my energy and gift since I finished the event so I didn't even realize they had given the WW until I read about it. I'm hoping that this was just an extra goal and that they've not decided to switch the day of it altogether. Lots of players need WW to finish events without spending gems and I'd hate to see them struggle without it. If s8 thought WW was giving players too much of a boost than I think they should've just stopped releasing it instead of changing it to a day when most players will get zero benefit from it because it seems kind of petty to me. *shrugs* I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens over the next week before we know for sure but they've lost my trust over the years so sadly, I can no longer give s8 the benefit of the doubt.

Petty is what came to mind for me as well..... my first unlimited was 20 minutes and I was out of things to tap after the first 10. I just kept repeating mushrooms and wells. I was maxed on all colors of petals. The second was 10 minutes and I pulled out a couple of moss trees to max on wood and acre berries in case I felt like doing vineyard trades, but those have been kind of a waste so I haven't been working on them for a long time. The whole WW was a washout this time, which is probably why the day was moved.

And "weekend warrior" just started! Think I'm sitting this one out.
It's called weekday warrior and it's 16 hours.


Annoyed about the weekDAY warrior. What use is that to those of us who have to work? Plus, I haven't even fed my daily allies for a couple of days since I finished. I still have mermaid goals, but those are slow going and expensive in coin.

I thought the point was a boost to celebrate the weekend, and a leg up with the goal that started Thursday. I can see the point of moving it to benefit different time zones or even lifestyles. But putting it so you can't use it for a timed goal makes it worthless.

I got the weekday warrior this morning at 7.30 with 12 hours left. No time to play because of work. When I opened the game this evening it was already over, so the 12 hours weren't really 12 hours. Not very useful, I think.

I got the plush princess and knight, just in time. Good thing I got the 100 plush swords for leveling up, otherwise I wouldn't have made it.
