Castle Story: Trials and Tribute (http://blog.teamlava.com/post/51736276799/castle-story-trials-and-tribute)

http://media.tumblr.com/9cc494f256c9759878ab7edfccc3d056/tumblr_inline_mnmgega8xO1qz4rgp.pngIt?s time to put your mettle to the test with a series of trials to complete in your kingdom. We?ve just introduced a new quest called Trials and Tribute. The trials are a series of tasks that even the mightiest of rulers cannot tackle in a day. Instead they stand as a distant goal, to be mastered little by little, day by day. Do you have what it takes to become the ultimate ruler? Collect all 10 badges to prove your worth and brag about it to all your neighboring kingdoms!
Find out what it takes to earn all of these badges after the jump!

Adventurer?s Badge - Do you have what it takes to be a true Adventurer? Head to your King?s Keep or Queen?s Court to find out!
Brewer?s Badge - Don?t get caught in a sticky situation. Become a master brewer by knowing your way around the Potion Shop!
Chef?s Badge - Your Knights will get hungry. Earn their loyalty by keeping them well fed!
Artisan?s Badge - True artisans can build great monuments out of anything. Prove yourself by crafting an assortment of materials!
Farmer?s Badge - Wheat and corn are the basic staples needed to keep any Kingdom alive. Become a real farmer and harvest all sorts of healthy crops!
Nurturer?s Badge - Sometimes a kingdom needs a gentle touch in order to thrive. Tend to your plants and animals and show others how nurturing you can be!
Miner?s Badge - Put on your hardhat and journey into the abyss. Head down to the mines and get a little dirty!
Explorer?s Badge - What lies beyond your kingdom limits? Become a true explorer and find out!
Trader?s Badge - There are some things that even the most thriving kingdoms cannot produce on their own. Head to your Royal Exchange and master the art of trading!
Slayer?s Badge - Fend off all the unwelcome beasts that stray into your kingdom. Establish yourself as a dominant force and become an ultimate slayer!








Just received new goal from Thurston, Trials and Tribute but unable to figure out how to accomplish it. Any ideas or suggestions?

Updated descriptions in red

Trial of The Adventurer

Trial of The Brewer

Trial of The Chef
Someone has reported getting it from making hearty feasts. I would think other feasts could work.

Trial of The Artisan Have you mastered the art of wood and stone?

Trial of The Farmer
Someone has reported this from farming strawberries. I would think that other plants would work

Trial of The Nurturer
Someone has reported this from watering mushrooms. I would think that other plants would count. Other players have confirmed watering and chopping trees work.

Trial of The Miner

Trial of The Explorer- Complete an expansion
Expand to the new expansion (see screenshot below) and have enough of the other expansions)

Trial of Trader Have you learned the art of exchange?

Trial of The Slayer

FAQ
How do we do them - We don't really no. TL is letting us work it out


Hey everyone! Our creative Castle Story team crafted this set of trials for you all to figure out. It's meant to provide you with a long-term and challenging experience. We'll leave the popcorn for later, but we're definitely very interested in your feedback! :)


Ok I've asked whether or not the badges were random. They're not. There are specific tasks that need to be done, the tasks are the same but may be done in different ways (of a similar nature).


Time to clear this up before anyone gets confused:

Nurturer: Mushrooms, Fruit trees, Chopping trees, Flowers
Explorer: Randomly designated 'chunk', for old players the only choice is the new area
Artisan: High level workshop beams/blocks
Chef: High level kitchen feasts
Slayer: Any monster
Brewer: High level potions/glues
Trader: Not enough info, perhaps any trade
Adventurer: Not enough info, perhaps any adventure
Miner: Sparkling mines/Deep mines
Farmer: Not enough info, perhaps any crop


I just got my Artisan's Badge from collecting plain and simple Wooden Beams for making "a LOT of building materials".
So I think that you don't have to craft high level stuff. I think you need to craft/collect a certain number of things to get a badge. Although it is possible that high level stuff counts more.


After getting 7 badges, I think T and T is actually not random. There is a certain number you must hit for each badge. Those that get the badges initially most likely got it as the update is new and there are bugs which get iron out soon, thus explaining why after the first few days, no one get any badges until a few weeks later.

This is what I gather so far.

Explorer - need to have a certain number of expansion. Those that got it by expanding to the new expansion is because they have already hit the required number

Miner - Only sparkling mine and deep mine are counted

Slayer - All 3 types of monsters are counted

Chef - Only feast are counted (simple feast, hearty feast, spicy feast, sweet feasf and valentine feast)

Farmer - All crops are counted

Artisan - All beams and blocks are counted

Nurturer - Fruit trees, all plants, all choppings of trees and logs, all watering are counted

Brewer - Only adhesive are counted (simple glue, super glue, builder paste, architect paste, magic cement)

Trader - All trades are counted

Adventure - All adventures are counted

To be change when new information come in.


Why are there different skip cost - TL trials different amounts with different group

Skip cost seem to have been standardised

Same here. Almost immediately after receiving the trials challenge I beat off a glimmer troll but nothing registered under the 'vanquish a foe' trial. Also had no result from tending the cattle and hens. Very puzzled!

I got that too - a whole list of new trials. I think they will be Adventures for the Knights but I can't check because my Knights are currently off exploring dark caves.

Looks like the update is slowly rolling out. I'm sure the trials will be completed as everything syncs up.

And very intrigued by the new building - Knights' Hall! Looks beautiful, even if it's greyed out right now. I swear, the art in this game is just gorgeous.

05-23-13, 11:37 AM
I agree about the artwork - way better than other games. Felt real anguish when I saw the expansion trial though, as I just today did the last expansion not requiring a trade expansion permit, and I've got 20 trades to go for my next! Oh well, it'll keep me busy ;)

05-23-13, 11:38 AM

Anyway, whatever it takes, we'll probably be out of!!! LOL

My skip is 100 gems. We probably need to do each task multiple times. Ten, maybe?

My skip is 200 gems. Dang.

I don't like to skip so it really doesn't matter. Looking forward to finding out more info!

Rickmz
05-23-13, 11:41 AM
One thing I don't like is the "new" requirement of having to build "X" when you already have it in inventory. I had seven Light Armors but STILL had to build a new one (same with concrete, E. Beam, and E. Block). Makes what we've been building between quests, goals, etc. kind of useless (at least in the immediate future).

Rickmz

So exciting! This mission seem like a hard one, since we have no clue what to do, how many times.... Is it the case that we have to tend all plants, feed all cows, pigs...., dig all the rock?

Yeah I'm guessing one of each type of animal/plant needs to be tended, one of each crop has to be grown, etc. Some instructions would be nice...

nasha86
05-23-13, 11:58 AM
For some mission, I will try to follow: 1. Adhesive art: magic cement
2. Feast for royal blood: Royal Sundae
3. Trial of the Adventurer: Search Ancient Cave
4. The Miner: rock the Dark Cave formation
5. Explorer: open up the last plot
And the other will try to do each type
We can pick different option and see the results. Hope to hear from others....

05-23-13, 11:58 AM
I think each trial means we have to do everything of that kind. So maybe for Adventuring, we have to do every adventure, the Potion shop, we have to brew every Potion...

Just guesses.

I think this could be it. I wish there was progress meter for each trial, instead of just 0/1. At least you would know if you were on the right track.

Baraze
05-23-13, 12:08 PM
It's obvious that its asking us to do basic things like, harvest, make glue, feed animals, send knights on an adventure, etc. But even when I do any of them nothing takes. So ill sit still and wait for them to start working. I hope we figure out the use for the purple hide and the strange occurrences of getting a lot of energy from simple tasks.

rosewaterlily
05-23-13, 12:08 PM
Well I planted one of each crop, guess I'll find out tomorrow when my carrot is done whether that satisfies the trial.

I bet new building requires ornate blocks/beams and magic cements. Since we have 4 mine ,i doubt TL make it easy to get.

That's the one I meant to write. The ones for Sabinas house. Just when my silver ore stockade was going back up again. Why do I feel someone will come here and say they finished he goal? Using gems because doing a bunch of different actions gave no head way. Gosh!

Read this and ran back to my kingdom to try it. First I visited 10 neighbors...nada. then forced closed...nada. Then went and visited 12 random people, popped hearts...nada. Then forced closed, counted to 25, restarted and...nada. Lastly, tried another 12 neighbors...nada.

Has this worked for anyone else and do you remember if it was with neighbors or random, how many visits, and did you have to pop hearts?

I expanded once to get the explorer badge... If you are fully expanded they give you an option of 2 expand areas but after you use 1 the other goes away. They do not need tickets

Do you have to expand to one of the new areas? A still have a couple cheap ones and am stocking up to expand to Sabina. I'd rather expand to one of those spots than one of the new ones if it triggers the badge, but I don't necessarily want to use gold and lanterns on one of those spots right now if it's not going to get me the badge.

Well, thanks to the good information on here, I expanded to the new area (although I did have 2 other areas I could've expanded to--one needing a permit, and one not requiring a permit) and I did get the explorer's badge. From what I can tell, that's been the only trial that anyone has passed yet. I have definitely been cooking, making glues, longswords, and tending crops and animals, but so far--nothing.

yes, I got the badge.
I have lots of expansions left. that is why I had the photos. was trying to decide where I wanted to go.

Maybe fully expanded doesn't includes those that need permits. Which means must fully expand to all area without permits. Anyone who got the badge and not fully expanded can confirm?

I unlocked the Explorer badge. Prior to that I WAS fully expanded. Thankfully I had 26 lanterns hoarded so it was an easy badge.

I got the badge from expanding to the new area that opened up today ( the 11 wisp one). I havent fully expanded yet, i just had the one regular area to expand to, the last one by the sea. But i have already expanded to all 4 permit spots. So i am still left with he one spot to expand to again.

1 royal sundae doesn't work. I'm working on sweet feast now (making all 4 feasts to see if that does it)

I had 2 plots still open the need permits, however I just went to the newly offered plot that didn't need permits and after expanding there got the badge.

Ok, I am not going to look through 19 pages of this topic to see if anyone else has noticed that several trials and/or tributes are very specific. For example, "have you cared for all that grows wild?"
I could be way off target here, but I'm reading between the lines and just re-placed all plants that require watering from my inventory; one of each plant. We shall see after I water them all...
Loving the new adventures! Thanks TeamLava!!!

I had fully expanded with the permits etc and tried to expand today after seeing the quest, and hey presto - got the badge! No other badges as yet. Just sent the knights off so let's see what happens tomorrow. In the meantime hopefully some other badge's requirements will get fulfilled!

Crazy thought here...I noticed that with the badge expansion there was a plethora of wild plants and rocks and log. Usually I only get a few. Wonder if we need to chop and water those specific items?

I concur; I don't think doing one adventure or crafting one glue is going to unlock anything! It's so fun to puzzle thru! I'm starting from the bottom for example making glue then super glue on up the chain of " adhesives"

I am not fully expanded because I've been saving my trade tix for the tinker camp and when I expanded to the new spot I got the explorer badge. So u definitely don't have to be fully expanded.

Hey everyone! Our creative Castle Story team crafted this set of trials for you all to figure out. It's meant to provide you with a long-term and challenging experience. We'll leave the popcorn for later, but we're definitely very interested in your feedback! :)

This pretty much says it all, long-term and challenging! I expect that the game is counting the number of things we do without letting us know how many times we must do certain tasks. So it could easily be 100 encounters before getting the Slayer badge, and harvesting 500 times to get the farming badge. I am completely fine with this since I am going to be playing CS regardless of available quests or not! Thank you for giving us one that provides a challenge! :)

Maybe those of you thinking the order is important are onto something. My first is 'Trial of the Adventurer' but some are saying theirs is 'Trial of the Explorer'. I have knights out now but can't collect till tomorrow but perhaps that's why some people are expanding and not getting the badge? Can anyone confirm explorer is not first on their list but they still got the badge or didn't get the badge? I don't have enough lanterns to try this yet.

Oh and mine cost 100 to expand so maybe there are 3 different orders, 1 for 50, the other for 100 and another for 200 if what I've read is true anyway idk just a thought.

Trial of adventurer - new adventure, cant remember the name -.-
Trial of the brewer - at least architect paste , or magic cement
Trial of the chef - sweet feast
Trial of the artisan - amphitheater or some crafting decor - i guess unicorn statue
Trial of the trader - hopefully golden trade , otherwise magic fruit trade :(
The rest i have no idea ...

I did the new adventure... nothing happened
I made the sweet feast... nothing happened
I made an amphitheater... nothing... I made a unicorn statue... nothing
Made one each of all glues except architects paste and magic cement. They are brewing in the potion shop now.

Have collected from every fruit tree, flower and shroom, now planted every coin tree and will let you know if tending to those results in anything. Next i'll try planting every flower i guess.

Wouldn't be surprised if a lot of these goals are do activity X a certain number of times. Just a hidden counter instead of being so specific like past goals.

You might have to get a Golden Nugget.

05-23-13, 11:36 PM
OK, here's what I think defines each trial.
Nurturer-Harvest Glimmerbulbs
Miner-Collect Golden Nugget
Artisan-Craft something in the Forge
Chef-Craft a feast in the kitchen
Adventurer-Go on Explore Dark Caves
Monster-Defeat a Glimmer troll

I vote for the "do x a few hundred times" theory.
And isn't Trial of the trader about receiving/sending gifts? If you read the description it seems more like that than trading at the royal exchange.

Maybe. Anything that fits in with exchanging or trading. But you don't really trade stuff with your neighbors, though, only exchange stuff. But then again, the Royal Exchange is also partially about exchanging too. I don't know. I'm going abroad this weekend, so I might not be able to play until Monday.

Sorry Oliver, but if you read the past 20 pages most of those have already been done with no success.

The Chef one might be make evey feast, or some number of feasts in total.

I think we will find out more tomorrow.

P.s. no luck with nurturing trees yet.

I do too think its all about the number of times u do certain task. e.g collecting form deep and sparkling mines number of times or making feasts (certain or all) again number of times. Like a counter, once u reach the specified number set for the goal u get to achieve it. Those who have already gotten the explorer trial, I guess they have already done so many explanations that reached the number set for that particular goal, hence they got it.

My opinion so far but I guess time will tell :cool:

Expanded to the new plot- nothing happened. Tried force-closing, still nothing. I think there might be some random element to these trials. Or maybe different things will give you the badges depending on what 'skip' you have. Mine is 50 btw.
I like the challenge of these new goals, but I would like it if there were just a few more hints of what to do, so that you would know you were on the right path.

Re: Nurturer badge

I have now tended to every flower (inc. valentines), tended to all mushrooms and grown all 9 trees to maturity with no badge received. My guess is it is some set number of 'tending' required, which must be more than 50.

I should answer my own question. As long as you expand to the newest expansion, you will get the badge. I got it with many expansions that need and don't need permits left. I suspect those that didn't get it expand to the wrong spot.
