Where do you get this sword


Edit: You need to do the following before you can craft Excalibam and expand to the Troll King's Lair:

1. Expand to the guy in his boxers
2. Complete his quests until he is dressed
3. Find a skunkupine to trigger the next quest (skunks like crops especially wheat)
4. When you have done that quest collect from Old Thomas' House to get the next quests
5. Do the next lot of quests
6. Collect from Thurston's a fort
7. Make sure you go into the Secrets of Mithril goal before sending your knights on the Dark Cave adventure

For details about the specific quests involved, see here (http://forums.teamlava.com/showthread.php?41844-Castle-story-Goals&p=481921&viewfull=1#post481921).

Once you have defeated the Troll King you get a Ruby (http://forums.teamlava.com/showthread.php?42543-Big-Red-Ruby). The Troll Pit is also unlocked. You get coins when you collect from it.

The enchanted sword isn't excalibam. There'll be another quest to either get it, swap it or upgrade it.

Not yet as I'm concentrating on wheat not the quests. From what I know you've got at least the quests to get his pants, helmet, armor and to defeat 10 of each monster. If I hear anymore ill keep you posted.

Do all the quests relating to Thurston. Once you've done as many of them as appear you will need to trigger a monster to get the peril quest.

Once you finish the peril quest you will need to talk to Thomas at his house. Then you need to find thurston at the tavern. Then you will need to pay his bar bill 25000 coins. Then you will get the Royal defender quest which you will need to buils a ballista which cost 50 woods and 50 iron ore. Also you will need to rally 60 stout knights to finish royal defender quest. That's where I'm at now. Hoping to get the sword quest soon.

I usually get him when I'm harvesting a bunch of crops at once. The Troll I usually get when picking up from my resource buildings in one big go or around my tower/castle, and the fangbeast usually around my kitchen/farm houses (when I actually clear them). Very rarely do I get any one of those 3 if I do my mushroom circles/ponds and only if I try do to them all at once.

After I built thurstons hut I killed a skunkupine...didn't trigger quest. Not until I collected from his fort did it trigger quest for excalibam. For excalibam you need...10 troll essence...5 enchanted essence...1 mithril...that he tells you that you can get from mining. Excalibam takes 20 hours to complete. Off to mine....

Ok, this is odd. I got a Mithril from my Dark Caves Adventure but it isn't acknowledging that in the goal "Secrets of Mithril". I've already started the Sword in the Magic Forge so why wouldn't the goal recognize that I received the Mithril?

I actually got a good haul on this last Dark Caves Adventure as not only did I get the Mithril I needed, I also got the Dark Cave Formation. YAY

I'm not sure if you have to be a certain level or not, but collecting from the fort should have triggered the next part of the goal chain. I know the easiest way to get Mithril (which you'll need to craft the sword) is by doing the Dark Caves Adventure and you'll have to be level 20 for that, but it should also drop from the Mine. Maybe you can turn your device on/off and try resyncing with iTunes and see if that helps jump start it.

This thread is so useful, i was actually planning on going to the dark caves but i changed my mind cuz i'm still on the monsters in Thurston's line of quests and i would hate that i get the Mithril now from the adventure before the goal is triggered cuz i'm sure it will take me a very very long time to get it a second time (in case i would've gotten it in the adventure)

It doesn't matter if you get the mithral first - it still counts toward making the sword...... I just need 3 more troll essences, can you send trolls over my way PLEEEEASE!!!!

wel, i'm happy to say that i only got 5 trolls today and i was able to finish the monsters quest. however the not so good part is that although i had over 60 trolls for the last 3 days and i'm not joking i only have 4 essences cuz my trolls only like to give me horns and glimmerdust which i have full inventory anyway........... As for the mithral i read in another post that somebody got it before the sword goal and then it wasn't recognized so they had to find a second one

I think david is talking about the goal that I got stuck on. I had a goal that required you to send your knights to the dark cave adventure but also get a mithril. Well I did that and I got a mithril, but the goal didn't count my mithril so I had to wait and get another one, which I luckily did the next morning. However, I had the goal BEFORE I got the Mithril, so it should have counted, but it didn't, and I'm still not sure why. It may have just been a blip with my goal, but it is resolved now.

so basically it would be ok if i send them on the dark cave adventure although i have no goal what so ever about the dark caves nor the mithril yet? do u remember when u got the goal to go to the caves cuz i wouldn t want to do it in advance and afterwards get no reward for doing so

Yes because you'll still get the rewards from the Adventure it just won't mark that portion of the goal complete if you happen to get it WHILE they are on the Adventure. My issue was I got the goal, along with the Forging Excalibam at the same time. I sent them on the Adventure and the next day when I collected from it I got a Mithril. The Mithril portion of the goal wasn't recognized so I had to send them AGAIN hoping I'd get another Mithril, which I did, so both the Forging of Excalibam and this particular goal of "sending the knights/get mithril) ended up completing at the same time as the sword takes 20 hours and the Adventure takes 22 hours. I just got VERY LUCKY that I got that 2nd Mithril on the very next Adventure so it would get recognized.

These are the last 2 goals that pop-up before you have to expand to the Troll King and then Defeat him, as you can't do the last 2 without Forging the Sword first.

I did PM with MHz_ and he was going to have the team look into WHY it hadn't recognized me getting the Mithril in the first place, but since I had already completed the task before he got my original PM, I'm not sure if they'll be able to trace why my goal went wonky. I just hope nobody else has the issue I had, or if they do, they get lucky and have the items needed to immediatly do another Dark Caves Adventure and get another Mithril right away. :)

Cool, thanks for the explanation. Do u remember how much the reward was for sending the knights to the cave cuz right now i need all the coins i can get cuz i'm nowhere near 135,000 for the expansion and if it was a large amount of coins for doing the adventure i guess i'll wait so i can cash in as well

For a moment I thought you mean you've dropped items while fending off the trolls, like being robbed, LOL.

I once got robbed of my energy, that's for sure. Fought the troll with 4 hits, ran out of energy. Came back later; my energy still gone; but the troll "recovered." >_<

Do you known when that quest is avail. Already have enchanted sword.

I'm guessing you have to wait until after you have built Thurston's fort to trigger quest to craft the Excalibam? I am currently at the Royal Defender quest which involves constructing a Ballista and gathering 60 Stout Knights. I am hoping after completing it i will trigger Thurstons fort.

So did the troll king regenerate? O.O;; Not looking forward to fighting him.

@teduw: the excalibam quest is triggered when you collect from Thurston's Fort for the first time.

@yupi: from memory, you can get mithril from the sparkling mine. If you have the 4th (or 5th?) knowledge shard, you can also make yow own mithril in the magic forge.

Although people were saying they got mithril from the dark cave quest before they got the Secrets of Mithril goal, and it didn't register. They end up having to do the dark cave quest again. So it might be easier to just do the dark cave quest.

I haven't triggered this quest yet, as I'm still finishing Thurstan's fort, but I already have all the enchanted essence and troll essence.

After I built thurstons hut I killed a skunkupine...didn't trigger quest. Not until I collected from his fort did it trigger quest for excalibam. For excalibam you need...10 troll essence...5 enchanted essence...1 mithril...that he tells you that you can get from mining. Excalibam takes 20 hours to complete. Off to mine....
