Can anyone help me with where to find glimmer dust, either than from neighbor gifts? Recently I've found none, and its telling me glimmer dust is found in low damp places. I've tried mushrooms, purple flowers, trees and rocks, and ponds and wells all day, and no glimmer dust.

It's a rare drop from mushroom patches, mushroom circles, red mushroom circles, tall grass, ferns, old logs, plant in log dead trees, Ivy's Hut, Magic Garden, Sir Pigglesworth, Feed the Baron, Glimmerdust trove, gifts from neighbours.

Please note that red mushroom circles will occasionally drop two.

If you have unlocked Ivy'sHut you can request it from neighbours

Edit - this features was removed with the manual update to version 1.1.1

I've had the best luck from mushroom patches, but that was pre-update. It's still really difficult to collect.

If you have 99 mushrooms in your inventory you get $ instead of th mushroom. Glimmer dust is still a rare drop. Try dead trees. They give you wood withna chance of glimmer dust.

You can request glimmerdust to build Ivy's house. Once requested, you can use it to make ink and so on until you have a stockpile - at which point you can finish Ivy's house. You can also receive it as a gift from neighbors.

I'm only on level eight and have collected about nine glimmer dusts. From pretty basic things. I only have two mushrooms. And one mushroom circle. My kids will think I'm cool playing this game. It's similar to their revered minecraft.

I harvested 10 mushroom circles,3 mushroom patchs and can only got TWO glimmerdusts, if I'm lucky :'-( .logs and tall grass only give me colorful petals. so the only reliable source of glimmer dust for me is generous neighbors. :p

I am currently collecting glimmer dust from neighbours on the ivy hut task, but that glimmer dust will be used to make the super glue to build her hut.

Then I am trying to make the magic ink which requires 10 x glimmer dust just to make ONE magic ink and I have to make 10 magic ink that's 100 glimmer dust it's next to impossible or will take me months

This is where I lose interest in games like this, the longer it's takes to complete a task it's get boring, I understand you have to try and slow the game down because people and moving through it to fast but our attention span are not that long

laVirtualCloset
10-23-12, 02:10 AM
You won't complete this task in a day but It shouldn't take you months. There are players who've already built the hut. There are a mixture of goals. Some, like this one, intentionally take longer. But there are plenty of other things you can while working on this goal.

This game is very different from other TL games. Perhaps some players have shorter attention spans but there are a variety of other games they can choose from if this isn't a good fit. I know other players love Dragon Story and Farm Story but it's not a good fit for me. No game is going to completely satisfy everyone but fortunately TL (or one other company) provides a lot for us to choose from.

Exactly, once u buy Ivy's hut you will have the ability to request glimmerdust from ur nbrs. However, instead of building right away, u may want to use this request feature as an opportunity to use the glimmerdust received for stocking up on other materials that require the ingredient or to make/construct other buildings whose parts require glimmerdust. You may actually be the one choosing to extend the time to necessary to complete the goal. This forum is full of invaluable information and notice about what's needed for upcoming goals and quest. After reading, you may find reasons to use the construction of Ivy's hut to your advantage and not be in such a rush to complete it.

If you're stuck at only being able to get glimmer dust from collecting, I find the dead trees drop glimmer dust more frequently. I had money to spare so I bought a few at $800 a tree and I would get at least one or two glimmer dust each time I finished chopping the tree down, takes 5 chops I think. Yes it's expensive and slow, but its a way if you don't have the option to request glimmer dust right now.

Sorry for the delay in responding, busy day at work. You're very welcome! It's possible there could be a delay in responding. I know I live in Californina and it seems my neighbors are always ahead of me. However, if you have alot of neighbors then make sure you don't send a request to most of them. You can only receive 20 request a day and sending a large number out could clog up your delivery. I have well over 100 nbrs but I only send out 20 requests. Your newsfeed will tell you which nbr responded to your request. I try to monitor my newsfeed as best I can and take note of which nbrs have a great track record of responding and focus on that subset.

laVirtualCloset
10-23-12, 08:24 PM
Just a suggestion, forget about what TeamLava is doing; whether they're changing the game or slowing it down. Don't be in such a rush, think about the game strategically and some of these things will naturally come to you. However, if they don't its okay because there is so much information on this forum to help you avoid some pit falls. Granted, if you don't come to forum then you may not know. But if you're coming to the forum to vent or share an opinion, or ask a question, or share some insite then take some time to also review other threads. In time you will be able to take advantage of what players ahead of you have discovered.

Don't be in such a rush. Once you complete a goal, you're just going to be looking for another one and another one. TL may only devote so much time at this level to this game before moving on to the next offering. Besides a goal to download other games, many of the longer TL offerings haven't had goals in a tremendously long time. At some point, TL's goal-giving music may stop and instead of saying "these goals take too long", you may be saying "when are we getting new goals". Enjoy it while you can :-)

Been there. But then I focused on getting glimmer dust in many ways : post on neighbor wall asking for it, send glimmerdust as gift (and hope the neighbor will give me the same ) and by harvesting mushrooms ( 10 mushrooms for 1 or 2 glimmerdust :-P) Slowly but sure I can finished the magic ink goal and the ivy's hut. Just be patient and try to enjoy it..it won't take you more than 2 weeks. It didn't take me more than a week :p . Good luck

10-24-12, 01:54 AM
Easier way to get glimmer dust if you have already completed ivys hut is to buy whole bunch of mushroom circles or keep the ones you get from expansions....dead trees are ok but you have to keep buying them....mushrooms you get to keep and can collect from many times a day. I have about 10 of them and if i click on all 10, at least 3 drop the dust.

Yep, A few extra is a good idea. Sometimes I do that and sometimes I don't but it's a good practice.

I know that certain goals and buildings require obtaining GlimmerDust and we were able to "ask" our neighbors. Now that I've completed those goals, obtaining GlimmerDust seems to be rather frustrating. I cleared "dead logs" and watered "mushroom circles", among other things, but not one GlimmerDust has dropped. I've posted on my wall for my neighbors to gift me GlimmerDust, and I'm probably receivin about 1/day, and that's if I get any at all. I'm trying to complete the Magic Forge and I need GD for the Super Glue and at the rate that I'm goin I probably won't complete it until next week. I think there needs to be a better way to get it because I'm NOT spending money for it!!

seattlestown
10-25-12, 09:47 AM
I seem to have to clear about 10 to 15 or more mush patches and circles before i get one glimmer dust. It's really hard to keep using so much energy just for one GD.

10-27-12, 06:38 PM
This is frustrating to me. Why were my neighbors allowed to request glimmer dust but when I get to this goal I cannot? If there is going to be a change to make it easier to collect it at a later time why am I the one who has to suffer with no easier way or no way to collect from neighbors. I get stuck in the middle of the pack struggling to get glimmer dust because requesting has been taken away and the easier way to get it has not come out yet.

While feeling frustrated about glimmerdust, don't forget to collect water, jewels, make the lanterns and save coins for further expansion. Just try to do anything that can be done instead of feeling stuck on one absurd goal. Don't lose the fun side of this game, ...if there's one.

I agree. This is ridiculous & I am more than a little peeved. I am so sick of the rules getting changed for no reason. On my game the rate of finding glimmer dust has not increased making it nearly impossible to complete any of my buildings. Also, it now costs 15 gems per glimmer dust?! This is a ridiculous ploy to get me to spend more money on their apps. I thought the point of team lava's updates were to make the game better not worse!

A push for the Glimmer Dust drop rates is now live. You should get them more often from all mushroom patches/circles. We also adjusted some gem costs on all blocks, beams, glues, pastes, and feasts. They were significantly cheaper then their material costs, and so they were raised to be a bit more in line with our intentions. They're still cheaper then their individual parts, just a little less now.

First- Kudos on this game, your best so far! Love the story and constant goals...keeps me engaged.
But the glimmerdust issue is not cool. Taking away ability to request it from neighbors...not cool. I'm clearly buying gems, but this change (combined with the many items that also need glimmerdust) will make me lose interest. It just seems a bit greedy, especially from the perspective of a player who spends about $15-$20 a week on gems for this game. In the first few days I spent around $60 because it was so fun.

Hope you'll let us request from neighbors again. Maybe put a daily cap on how many can be received? I certainly understand your desire to slow down the game so we don't lose interest. But some decisions (especially when privileges are taken away) are a bit extreme.

I still enjoy the game very much, I find that the increased drop rate from the circles has made up for them taking away the ability to ask neighbour for the dust, I only use the red circles as they drop 2 dust at a time. I treat it as an extension of farming.

I use alot of my energy to collect from mushrooms of all kinds so that I can obtain glimmer dust. It is nice that they do drop glimmer dust more often now, but it is still taking me forever (two to three weeks) to complete one goal because so many goals require such LARGE amounts of glimmer dust. Therefore, it becomes frustrating and boring. Glimmer dust seems to be the most use material, yet it is the hardest to get. I understand slowing the game down, but it is almost making this game way too hard to get anywhere, due to the lack of glimmer dust and the cost if expansions. Can anything else be done to help so that glimmer dust is any easier to obtain?

I would suggest you concentrate on the red mushroom circle as it drops 2 dust at a time..... I find that harvesting 6 red circles will generally give between 2 to 8 dusts..... The item I am finding really hard to find is the jewels

I got them from the sparkling mines, mining lots and lots of rocks, adventures give 1 occasionally, you can also request from neighbours. Takes a while but eventually you get them.

Drop rates are independent to game version. It's just bad luck.
I don't understand this. Obviously a lot of people are upset about the drop rates, it WAS fixed, then when you updated it again you UN fix it? I am already experiencing a severely dropped rate of finding glimmer dust.. AGAIN. Pointless update.

We never changed it after we made adjustments. It's just bad luck, plain and simple. If you flip a coin 50 times, you'll almost never have it result in heads 25 times, and tails 25 times, even though the probability is 50/50. The same goes for the drop rates.

LMAO, yup. I'm not touching my mushrooms or circles until I can get rid of some of my stockpile. Problem is, I need to make Super Glue and I can't without the Glimmer Dust. On top of that I need to build Ivy's Hut and I can't because I can't make Super Glue and I can't get the 40 Glimmer Dust on top of that. I'm hoping to make enough money to purchase the Queen's Keep and I'm PRAYING it doesn't need Super Glue, or I'm dead. LOL!!!

I even posted on my wall to please gift me Glimmer Dust if people decide I'm one of the 3 to gift, and only GG has been kind enough. :(

I was able to get about 40 glimmerdust from friends before the update, but then you need 40 more for the super glue for Ivy's Hut, and 100 more to make the Tome. Honestly, I just bought a lot of dead trees and brought out the axe. I would usually get 1-2 glimmerdust per tree (sometimes 0 and rarely 3). I think it took just over a week to get all I needed, and meanwhile I was stocking up on plenty of wood, mushrooms, and exp. I know it's a bit slow for some, but then, kingdoms aren't built in day... :)

The problem is that if you're maxxed on mushrooms you no longer get glimmer dust to drop, at least that is what I have found. I can't get rid of the mushrooms either as I'm too low a level to use them and no goal to off load them. :(

When you collect you get a random assortment of items. This can include glimmer dust, living wood, bones, fur, rat tails, creep teeth, any colored petal, mushrooms, hot peppers.

In addition to these, once you collect from her hut for the first time you can get the quest to unlock the magic garden. When you unlock it, it can drop glimmer dust, glimmer bulbs, faerie in a jar, mysterious venom.

I'd say it's worth unlocking her hut.

Just another confirmation that you can still get glimmerdust even when maxed out on mushrooms. When I'm not using all my energy to get 120 of something for the merchants, I'll harvest my little mushroom patch and get roughly 1 glimmerdust per 6-8 tries.

I wonder if having so many works against you. I finally purchased 7 red mushroom circles and continuous tend thos throughout the day. Some days I barely get 2 drops all day. But most days I get at least one drop every time. Considering the red circles give two glimmer dust per drop that's not bad. It's still a far cry from what u need if that's the only way ur getting glimmerdust but it is a little better than the drop rate ur currently getting.

Actually, I need 300 Glimmer Dust to get by the 2 goals I have right now. That isn't going to happen without either using gems or waiting more than a month with the rate Glimmer Dust gets sent as a gift or drops right now.

This is crazy, we need to be able to gift more than 3 neighbors in order to expect to get gifts back, or at least allow us to REQUEST Glimmer Dust again.

I'm not reading this wrong am I?

Translator Tome needs 10 Magic Pages. 1 Magic Page needs 2 Magic Ink. 1 Magic Ink needs 10 Glimmer Dust. So for just the Translator Tome we'd need 200 Glimmer Dust.

My other goal is Magic Ink & Pages. This requires 10 Magic Ink which means another 100 Glimmer Dust.

Magic ink & pages is the quest you do as part of the translator tome. You're not making them in addition. Also can you please confirm that it is 2 magic inks per magic page as I'm pretty certain it's only 1. So it's possible you only need 100.

I have 3 goals right now.

A Translator's Tome = Create the Tome
Magic Ink & Pages = Brew 10 Magic Ink & Make 10 Fine Parchment
Builder's Caravan - disregard for this post

Is what you're saying is that once I hit "Brew" on the Magic Ink & Pages goal those 10 Magic Ink can still be used to make the Magic Pages? I could have sworn someone posted somewhere that once you put it to use in one area it can't be used in the other as well.

I took from your spreadsheet that the Magic Pages needs 2 Magic Ink, as I don't even have Magic Pages listed in my Workshop yet. I was trying to plan for what I needed so I looked at your guide for the items to match up.

Make ink and pages is creating the ingredients needed to make the magic pages for the tome. The spreadsheet was wrong (downside of allowing anyone to edit it). I've corrected it now. Time for magic pages may be wrong - I think (but can't find my post) that the quest description says it's about 4 hours but it might really be 5.

I just need 10 more for Ivy's hut. Luckily I started saving them early in the game.
I chopped 5 dead trees and got 2 dust out of 2 trees and 0 out of 3 trees, so that's 4 dust out of 25 energy.
It's about the same as the mushroom circles, but it costs a bit of gold and you get wood.

You can get glimmer dust from mushroom circles. They have about 20% chance to give one glimmer dust alongside the mushroom. The red mushroom circle isn't better than the normal one, but it's reset timer is shorter. To get 40 glimmer dust this way takes about 200 energy clicks. That's doable.
You can also chop down dead trees, and get some wood too. In my game dead trees give either 2 or 0 glimmer dust, so in the end that's also 20% chance per energy click.

I think fastest way is to ask neighbours that they send glimmerdust as gift. Since yesterday i got some from neighbours as gift and send bymyself since 2-3 days glimmerdust as gift every day to every neighbour.

Just for info:
Mushrooms didnt work by me, only dead wood gives nearly everytime means: 1 deadwood <-> 1 glimmerdust

I was collecting today and I thought I saw 'you can't hold any more glimmer dust' up in the top right corner, but I'm not sure. I have no glimmer dust in my inventory, so it didn't make sense. I've been trying to collect from my mushroom rings since and haven't got any glimmer dust yet, to see if that's what it really said. Might explain why my supply has been going down.

That is you can request it to build the hut

I can't . It just says from various. I haven't been able to build the hut because of that as I needed so much for the super glue as well. And now I need 40 more for the tome! How ever can I get 80 glimmer dust as it is only available in every 4-5 mushrooms not every patch. Keep harvesting only mushrooms nowadays in a bid to get the dust but keep getting mainly mushrooms which I can't harvest any more!

It didn't happen overnight, but I finally was able to get the required amount to do Ivy's Hut and the Magic Ink by posting on my Wall asking my neighbors to gift me Glimmer Dust as well as using most of my energy to just concentrate on the Red Mushroom Circles (6 of them). I can usually get 4 Glimmer Dust when I harvest all 6 at once (2 Glimmer dust drops from 2 circles). Maybe you want to purchase some of those and concentrate on harvesting them for a few days and see if you can get the required amount.

Hi guys, I haven't expanded to the tablet yet but my glimmer dust storage almost full. So, is there any way I can wisely invest it in magic ink or it will appear only when I expand to the tablet? If so, what would you suggest to make: some super glue or that enchanted essence or smthg? I am lvl 15 now. Ivy's hut already up and running.

The magic ink will only appear when you have the magic ink and pages quest.

I'd craft one of each of those potions. Then wait until you're maxed before crafting more. You want to keep your levels high so the tablet will be easier.

You'll get challenges where the market will "demand" certain items. Previously I've been asked for 75 eggs & the like. Right now my market wants 125 sugar cane, which was handy since I was maxxed out on the stuff and only need to grow 26 more to meet the request. But a few days ago they wanted me to fork over 100 coal. I was like "No way!" and let that challenge lapse unfulfilled. They weren't going to interrupt my wisp lamp production!!
