I've compiled a list of common questions and answers from the game. This list isn't complete and I will add to it.

The Potion Shop is Locked by Goal. How do I get It?

You need to expand to Ivy (the Tree Lady). She will give you a quest that unlocks the Potion Shop.

I just went up a level and it says I can get x building. When I try to buy it, it tells me I need to level up. Help

There is a limit to the number of each type of building you can have per level. If you really want the new building you can sell one of the existing types.

The types are Royal, Town, Resource, Crafting and Special. To see the different types of building go into the Market, click on Buildings then select the appropriate tab. This will show you all the buildings of that type.

A Fangbeast is appearing in front of my Kitchen. I can't use the Kitchen to craft the Meat Cleaver to defeat it. What do I do?

You can defeat the Fang Beast without the cleaver. You may need a sword (not sure as I already had a sword when I saw my first monster. A Homemade Sword can be made in the Workshop a Longsword can be made in the Magic Forge.

Click on it and it will give you an option of which sword strike you want to use. There's a chance that a particular stroke may be more effective reducing the number of hits needed to defeat the monster.

I have to build the Conservatory. Where do I get Red Petals from?

You can go to your neighbours and post on their wall asking them to gift you Red Petals.

They are a rare drop from Patch of Tall Grass, Plant In A Log, Old Log, Bushes, Ferns. You will also sometimes get them from Ivy's Hut.

I need LOTS of Glimmerdust. Where do I get it?

Glimmerdust is a rare drop from: Fern Patch, Patch of Tall Grass, Plant in a Log, Old Log, Dead Tree, Mushroom Patch, Mushroom Circle and Red Mushroom Circle. Red Mushroom Circles seem to drop it a little more frequently. They also have a chance of dropping 2.

You can also go to your neighbours and ask them to gift it to you.

How come all my neighbours are maxed on Gifts/How come I don't get many Gifts?

You can only send three gifts per day. Depending on what gift you want to send there are further limits. You can only send 1 Jewels. You can only send 2 Silver Ore or Fur.

Also if your neighbours have reached the maximum for that item you will not be able to send it. Try sending another gift to see if that works.

I'm doing the "Of Telescopes and Tablets" quest. What do I need to find?

Something that can be Polished to a Shine is Silver Ore.

Something that Focuses Light is Jewels

Something that Shimmers and Shines is Mermaid Scales

I already have the materials for "Of Telescopes and Tables". Why won't it recognise them?

You have to find the materials after starting the quest.

I have a quest to harvest x crops. I've got them why aren't they recognised?

You have to harvest them after you started the quest. Also it is the number of times you harvest them not the quantity you receive (sometimes you get a bonus item).

I have x neighbours. I sent them all a request to get x. I've only had 10 back. What gives?

You can only receive 20 requests back each day. When you send the request out to everyone it can clog up the system for you. For most quests you should pick 20-30 people that you know will respond.

How do I get Bones/Fur/Rat Tails?

These are all drops from monsters. Monsters sometimes appear when you are performing actions around your Kingdom. Skunkupines tend to appear when collecting from crops, mining, chopping or tending plants. Fangbeast tend to appear when you collect from Buildings and animals. Glimmer Trolls tend to appear when collecting from coin buildings, resource buildings and mushrooms.

Sometimes you will get these items as a reward from adventures or collecting from Ivy's Hut.

How do I get Living Wood?

You can get Living Wood from chopping trees, collecting from Sawmills and chopping Old Logs. It may also come from Plant In A Log, Tree Log and Dead Trees but I need verification on these.

I have x energy and my neighbour has y. Why do we have different amounts?

The first thing that impacts your energy cap is the level you are on. Each level increases your energy by 1 until you hit the maximum.

There was an update that gave all existing players a cap of 40 energy. Players who started after that update have a cap of 30.

Who is this Stormie person? I don't remember inviting them

Stormie is the Teamlava display kingdom. You can visit Stormie to bump up your social rating. You call also send requests which Stormie will respond. (Like asking for Red Petals from the Conservatory).

I expanded but the land had nothing on it. Where are my rocks and trees?

While most blocks have a variety of items there are a couple that have nothing on them. Think of it as a good way to have space to build without have to use energy to clear it.

But I needed the trees and rocks. What do I do?

You've got a couple of different options. In my opinion your best bet is to have mines and sawmills. They give multiple wood/stone with the chance of other items. Otherwise you can buy trees, old logs, dead trees and plant in a log for wood. You can buy iron rich rocks, small rock piles and rock outcroppings for stone.

I used to be able to request Wisp Lanterns now I can't. Why'd they take them and what do I do?

I believe this ability was removed to increase the longevity of the game by preventing people from expanding too quickly.

Wisp Lanterns can be crafted in the Workshop. They are sometimes given as a reward from Adventures.

How come I don't have anymore quests?

There could be a couple of reasons for this.

1. You may not have the latest version installed
2. You may have completed all the available quests. If that's the case you will to wait for the next update.
3. There may be something that you need to do to trigger the quest. Try these threads for info:

A Neighbour has a quest from the Tablet of Tabernum. How come I can't get it?

First you have to unlock the Tablet. Then you have to be lucky enough to get a Knowledge Shard when collecting from it. These shards are a very rare drop.

How do I unlock the Magic Garden?

You need to complete the Ivy quests up to finishing her Hut. Once you have collected from the Hut a "?" should appear over the Garden. Clicking on this should give you the next lot of quests needed to unlock the Garden.

If this isn't working for you try force closing your game, going back into it and clicking on the Garden.

Why is a particular recipe not showing in my crafting building?

Some items only appear in the crafting buildings when you are doing the quest. They won't be there before you do the quest and they disappear once you have finished the quest.

maguar
10-25-12, 02:19 PM
I've tried force closing but I still can't trigger the quest o unlock the Tablet of Taberum or the Magic Garden. What do I do?

There's a bug that doesn't trigger these quests if you have rotated these items. Rotate them back (you may need to force close) and this should allow you to trigger the quests.

This was fixed with a version update. Make sure you have the latest version installed.

How do I unlock Ivy's Hot Sauce?

These goal is triggered by harvesting a Hot Pepper. You have to be at level 17 for this to occur. It may require you to harvest a couple of peppers.

Even if you are maxed for Hot Peppers (99) you can trigger this by harvesting a pepper.

I have a goal that needs me to harvest/collect x (or I need to trigger a goal by that) but when I collect it I'm told I have to much. Is there anything I can do?

TL has implemented a fix to allow you to trigger goals even if you are maxed with the item. You may need to try collecting the item a number of times before it triggers.

A neighbour got a pig/sheep/statue/gems etc from an Adventure. Why didn't I?

The items that you get from an Adventure is a bit of a lucky prize dip. You'd get a chance of getting up to 5 times the money you paid (it can also be less). You also get a chance of Energy, common items and rare items.

If your neighbour got something you didn't they were just lucky on that try. Keep trying and you could get something good to.

TL has mentioned that they will look at scaling up the rewards of the higher level quests given the requirements.

How do I rotate walls?

Walls rotate automatically. Just place the walls where you want them to go. Eg place two going left to right then one above them to form a corner

x
xxx

How come I don't have many Walls but others have heaps?

The number of Walls you can have is limited by your level. I believe this is because they are the most cost effective source of Royal Points. For a lot of levels you will only be able to add 1 Wall/level. Once you hit level 23 the amount you can add increases each level.

I just got a Faerie in a Jar from collecting from Glimmerbulbs/Magic Gardern. What are they for?

They used to be used for Lumin Essence but that was changed with an update. The only thing that requires them at the moment is the quest "Faerie Magic".

I just got a Mysterious Venom from the Magic Garden. What do I use it for?

At the moment there is nothing to use it for. From the description it normally drops from Monsters. Hopefully it will be from one of the new monsters they're introducing in a future update.

Not able to figure out how to get the "simple glue" to finish buildings. I thought you had to buy the Potion Shop. I go to buy it and it won't let me. Just says "goal". I'm a level 12 and I see that other members have stuff built that require simple glue, so Im at the right level.

I know how to send gifts. How do I request gifts/materials from my neighbors?

maguar
11-17-12, 01:36 AM
To request gifts write on your own wall or your neighbours wall asking them to send you a particular gift(s). As people can only send 3 a day you'll find most are slowly returning gifts to people who have sent gifts to them.

To request materials for a quest go into the quest and press the "Ask" button en select who you will send the request to. To request materials for a building (only available for limited buildings like the conservatory now) go into the building, press "Ask" and select your neighbours. As you can only get 20 requests per day, send the request to about 25 neighbours you know are playing daily and will accept. This will stop you from clogging your system.

It allows you to store buildings and decorations. If you didn't have it you'd need to leave them out or sell them. Handy when space is at a premium.

You can buy small rocks, rock outcroppings and iron rich rocks in the market (you can also get them with expanding). Also invest in a mine.

Thank you for the FAQs and the Reference Guide. It helps a lot. I've just reached level 25. Other than the Tabernum Research: Agriculture quest, I have completed all my quest. Is there anymore coming? It feels kinda empty and boring without any quest.

Additionally, I have reached the maximum inventory for some of the items i.e. mushrooms and I'll be wasting my energy to harvest the mushroom patches and mushroom circles just to get the glimmerdust which will be very rare (like 1 Glimmerdust for every 10 mushroom patches? Or worst.. NONE!). Any other alternatives for me to get the glimmerdust as the Tabernum Research: Agriculture quest needs them and I only have half of it and of course I would like to keep some too.

As for the Royal Points, I have reached the maximum number of Royal Buildings in my Kingdom and from the reference guide provided, I will not be able to add another Royal Building until I reach level 30. I've tried to increase my Royal Points by storing my Watch Tower and Lantern Spire and tried constructing other Royal Building which provide higher Royal Points which is not successful. Do I have to sell off the current Royal Building I have to build another one? That would be very frustrating as not only it'll be sold at lower price but I've spent resources on that building too.

Last but not least, any preference on the expansion area? Which area should we expand first?

Yes there are 30+ quests coming with the update due really soon.

You could make pasta to use your mushrooms. Otherwise you can sometimes get glimmer dust from ferns, tall grass, old logs, plant in a log, dead tree. Also sometimes from Ivy's hut and the magic garden.

Its possible that I'm missing an increase in royal buildings in the spreadsheet. If there is no mistake you have to sell off a building; storing doesn't work. If you've got a tower sell that as you won't lose as much.

Expand towards landmarks (eg garden, rock nest etc) as they will unlock with future updates. Some of these will introduce new characters. Otherwise go for the cheaper ones. Personally I'd wait until the update occurs.

Hopefully I've answered all of your questions.

It would depend on the other royal buildings that you both have. Click on the market, then buildings, then click on the royal tab. This shows you which buildings are royal. Count how many of these you and your neighbour have.

If you want to build another library you will need to sell one of your royal buildings.

You can only get back 20 a day. You must of sent near reset time to get 25. The best thing to do with these sorts of requests is to send to about 25 people you know play daily and respond to requests.

They don't add royal points but you have better chances at the drops. For instance, the Royal Pig gives double the amount of bacon and has the highest chance of finding truffles. The Royal Cow has a higher chance for rare drops.

But it takes 2 hours to make the bread. Maybe they should reduce the time for making the bread. The milk invetories are full again within the minutes after making the bread. If it isn't because of the High Steaks Quest I won't be bother to tend the chickens until I need to.

Should there be only one beast in the kingdom? I have trapped a Skunkpine in my Kingdom and leave it there for the last couple of days so it'll be easier for me to harvest the Crops. But I've noticed that I have not come across a troll since. I don't really like the trolls. It took 7 of my energy to beat him but I've read somewhere that we'll get glimmer dust if we beat the trolls. Now I wish that he'll come and visit sometimes so I can beat him up.

Yes, you can get glimmer dust from Trolls. I'm having a devil of a time trying to get GD from my mushrooms. Thankfully I've managed to wrangle a few out GD of the trolls when I try to collect from my mushrooms.

Geez no wonder no other fangbest lingering around the kingdom. I've done the Thorton Quest and beaten up few trolls. Is there anymore quest where I'll need to beat another Troll? Guess will beat this little skunpine I have in my Kingdom and try to look for another troll and see if this time I have more luck getting the Glimmer Dust from him than the Mushroom Patches..

What level are you at? Can you build a castle? Once you have the castle (King's or Queen's keep) you use food for adventures. Basically you feed dishes to a bunch of knights that go out for a day and come back with random stuff: petals, blocks, beams, jewels, gems, earth wisps, glimmer dust... :)

To feed your knights you need the dishes called feasts, so if you want to make sure whatever you cook will come in handy I advice you to have some of those ready when your keep is built :D

The ability to request a number of building items was removed with the latest update. They may not have updated. Some things like red petals are still available. Go to an unbuilt conservatory, under red petals click the ask neighbour button. Select the neighbours you want to send the request to then press send.

Where do I get the golden items for the Sir Pigglesworth quest?

These are all rare drops.

* Golden Apples - Apple Trees and Magic Garden
* Golden Eggs - Chickens and Hatchery
* Golden Nugget - mining different rocks, Sparkling Mine, Pond

I've got more than 1 type of golden item. Any use for this?

Everything will have a use at some stage.

I don't want to spend money on gems to get the trees or animals. Does this mean I can't do the goals?

You can do all goals without needing to spend money. It just might take you a little longer.

Adventures from the keep sometimes give gem trees and animals as rewards. Truffles and Prime Cuts are sometimes rewards as well. You'll even get gems on occasion.

The Purple Cow and Sir Pigglesworth sometimes drop gems.

Bacon and Wool sometimes drop from the Stables.

How do I wield Excalibam to get to the whole in the ground.

You need to follow the Thurston quest line to do this. For detailed information on this please see the links at the beginning of this post.

How do I get the Purple Cow?

When you collect from the Magic Garden there is a chance you will start a quest line (the one with Ivy and the Cow). The reward at the end of this quest line is the Purple Cow.

As for rotating the tablet, look it was a coincidence for a couple of people. Just got my third shard without rotating the tablet.

Kooky's put it very clearly




To force close you games, means you are closing out the game from running in the background.
On iphone, ipad, etc. ( you are not deleting the game and redownloading it)

Click you home button twice, your icons will show up at the bottom

http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQQx33DWgZVWPenwP1h0tpgUnPKRBxsz yWFKkDmOxwXrqLhb7dADwnKnLPx
Then you hit the red minus sign for the apps you want to close out. you can scroll to find more.
You are not deleting the apps just closing them out.


Also your games are saved on TLs servers so even if you deleted and reinstalled the game your kingdom would be waiting for you.

There are some areas that are locked and we can't expand to. With the gateway, rock nest etc its because they have released the associated content. We need to wait for an update to get to any place that is currently locked.

Thank you for the FAQs and the Reference Guide. It helps a lot. I've just reached level 25. Other than the Tabernum Research: Agriculture quest, I have completed all my quest. Is there anymore coming? It feels kinda empty and boring without any quest.

Additionally, I have reached the maximum inventory for some of the items i.e. mushrooms and I'll be wasting my energy to harvest the mushroom patches and mushroom circles just to get the glimmerdust which will be very rare (like 1 Glimmerdust for every 10 mushroom patches? Or worst.. NONE!). Any other alternatives for me to get the glimmerdust as the Tabernum Research: Agriculture quest needs them and I only have half of it and of course I would like to keep some too.


I keep harvesting mushrooms for glimmerdust. My glimmer is always full, and I experience a 1:4 ratio. If you keep 4-6 mushroom circles going, you will get 1-2 glimmers from them each time. Just as you collect from cows and sheep for a prime cut, you won't get one every time.

Should there be only one beast in the kingdom? I have trapped a Skunkpine in my Kingdom and leave it there for the last couple of days so it'll be easier for me to harvest the Crops. But I've noticed that I have not come across a troll since. I don't really like the trolls. It took 7 of my energy to beat him but I've read somewhere that we'll get glimmer dust if we beat the trolls. Now I wish that he'll come and visit sometimes so I can beat him up.

Yes, initially you need 7 hits per troll, but he drops energy (all beasts do) and you are often left with energy after they are defeated. I kill a troll first, so I have the same or more energy after. Sometimes it doesn't, but often it does.

In the end I saved up enough coins and was able to purchase, but all 3 fruit trees costed BOTH gems (30,60,90) and coins (thousands.) Which isn't a lot for higher level player, but for a new game at low level that hurts.

I've passed this along. Any chance you got a screen shot of it?

I'm trying to purchase an orange tree listed for the cost of 30 gems. I have 89 gems but when I go into "Market" and "Nature" and click on the orange tree I receive the message: "Not enough coins" and then it gives me the option of purchasing 10,000 coins for 20 gems. I don't understand why if the tree costs gems I need to have a certain amount of coins on hand. Help!
The Coin issue with the Apple, Orange, and Lemon Tree has been fixed. They will no longer ask you for Coins when you attempt to purchase them.

Black sheep (180gems/ 4hrs collecting time)- highest chance of producing prime cuts

Im not sure about the precise rate but my personal experience is that black sheep almost alway gives prime cuts( i'd say 95%++ drop rate) and the royal cow has about 75% chance of dropping prime cuts.But the cow has shorter collecting time so you can get more prime cuts from the cow ,with one condition that you have to collect every hour.

About royal cows and prime cuts, I found this:


I got a Royal Cow (...) and so far the the chance of getting a prime cut from this cow is 50%. Can collect from it every hour

You can collect from the royal cow every hour, a black sheep drops one prime cut every 4 hours.

If you play often a royal cow is better since it would give you a prime cut every two hours.

But then no more gem buy 1 more orange tree... hate the gem trap!!

Hi!

I have been reading the FAQ and have two suggestions:



How do I unlock Ivy's Hot Sauce?

These goal is triggered by harvesting a Hot Pepper. You have to be at level 17 for this to occur. It may require you to harvest a couple of peppers.


Some people think they actually need to add a pepper to their inventory, so if they are maxed out on them, they do not even try. Maybe the FAQ could mention that trying to harvest peppers shuld trigger the goal, even if you don't get any cause you are maxed out.




I have a goal that needs me to harvest/collect x (or I need to trigger a goal by that) but when I collect it I'm told I have to much. Is there anything I can do?

See if you can use the item in a crafting recipe. Noodles are are great way to reduce Eggs (otherwise use bread). You can make Sweet Creme if you're at the right level to reduce Milk (if not you'll need to level up. Strawberries are used for Royal Sundaes but you have to be a high level and have 10 Magic Fruit. If you got too many Hot Peppers and haven't unlocked Ivy's Hot Sauce there is nothing you can do.

TL has implemented a fix to allow you to trigger goals even if you are maxed with the item. You may need to try collecting the item a number of times before it triggers.



I think this problem was fixed in the last update (not being able to trigger a goal because one is maxed on a given item) so the question shouldn't be here.
Anyway, if it hadn't been solved: Sweet Creme and Royal Sundae were removed with the last update and bread doesn't use eggs anymore.

I hope this helps and someone can update the info ;)

And what are the glimmerbulbs used for? And the cabbage? I'm almost to level 30, and still haven't come across a need for these 2 items.

Cabbages and glimmerbulbs are only used with the purple cow quests. They'll have more use in the future.

You can only have a max of two of each of the different crafting and resource buildings.

I have a question about visitors. If my messages Menu-News does not tell me someone was there, it means they came but clicked no hearts. If the News says they helped, they tapped hearts. If they post on Menu-Overview-Wall then I know they were there. But why do they message that they tapped 5 hearts if News doesn't say it?

maguar
02-10-13, 01:24 PM
The news just tells you who helped out not how many times they helped out. So your news wouldn't care if I helped 1 or 5 times it would only show me once. If I helped 2 then came back later and helped 3 your news would show me twice (if the first hadn't been pushed off the feed).

People write so you and they know they've visited. Often people will record the number of hearts so if they revisit they can see how many more hearts they can tap.

Make sure you read the secret of mithril quests. After you've read it send your knights on the explore the dark cave adventure. This will give you a 1 time automatic drop with it. Otherwise if you've got the 4th shard you can craft it in the magic forge. Otherwise it's a really rare drop from mining/mines/sir piggles.

Red mushroom circles have the best drop rate. Otherwise try other mushrooms, old logs, dead trees, ferns, tall grass, magic garden, Ivy's hut, sir piggles, feed the baron recipe.

Hi, I'm new to the forum so I hope I'm doing this right. Can anyone help as I seem to have a problem with my storage. I can see it and I can tap on it but I can't get into it and I know I've put stuff in storage. Even if I tap on edit and then the storage, the only option I get is to rotate it or move it. I may be doing something really stupid so any help would be great. Thanks.

To access items in storage, tap on Edit or Market in the lower righthand corner and then "Inventory."

Sorry don't wanna seem impatient, but Maguar said a few days ago he'd reported my lovecupine issue, and that once it's been removed I should harvest wheat/corn till I get a skunkupine to access the homemade sword in the workshop. That was 2 days ago. Can anybody give me an idea as to how long it will take support to remove the lovecupine? Also in the meantime can I still play the game or do I need to stay out of it until they fix it?

Thanks!

So what is the storage cellar building on my land.... It's that building that I can't do anything with apart from rotate and move

I've just completed and built my 2nd serenade tower and put into storage. I then went into my inventory like lotuskat said and its not there and I know I've put things in there before that I have built. Can anyone help?

The storage cellar holds any buildings etc that you want to store... To access the items in storage you go through the 'my inventory' button under market place or edit

You can still play your game. I flagged it again last night so hopefully it's fixed soon.
