We are all excited about the dragon. Some lucky players already have their egg. I hope to get mine soon & get started on this newest quest!

To get the dragon egg you need to expand to the forgotten roost and collect from it. If you're lucky you will find the dragon egg.

After only 2 books in 2 days,I skipped the books,second goal was to give wool and 2 more things to sabina(I forgot),THEN you have to make a net for thurston:10 mithrill,50 wool,and I jeez,I just forgot how many of the blue potion stuff in potion shop(at least 10)sorry so frantic w amounts,was trying so hard to remember.i need some more wool to make the net,then that takes 8 hours to make in the forge.thats all the current info I got:)


I made The net. It needs 10 mithril, 50 wool, 5 enchanter essence.

Next quest: you need 50 cabbages (you better prepare for it...)
Next: you need 5 longsword.
Next: you need 50 library record (you have to ask neighbours to send...so it will take 2 days.) I am currently here. Wont skipnbecause it takes 200 gem.

I got my egg this morning from The nest. I skipped The book quest, made through others (with some speeding)

Hope it helps others.


I add some pics (forgot to record all):

Please note that if you buy the baby dragon it will not trigger the quest. You'll get the quest when you get an egg from the roost.

The baby dragon is ready to tend every hour and takes about 20 tends to mature.

Has been reported to drop coins, coal, dragon scales, longswords, light armour, jewels, earth wisps, energy and gems. The collection time is 22 hours once it is fully grown.

Sounds pretty cool, and a lot deeper than I originally thought. Not thrilled about the fact that it is apparently contingent on some unknown luck factor to even get started. Seems to be a recurring theme these days.

06-28-13, 02:01 PM
Yeah for an entire quest line, there should be an automatic trigger like collecting from Ivy/Thomas/Thurston/Sabina in past quest lines. I went to my roost this morning and got an egg, unfortunately it was a manticore.

I hate this whole random drop thing. It's ridiculous. It doesn't treat all game players fairly! It's a quest line so should be available to everyone who plays the game at the same time. Not by some stupid random drop. I think by the fact that some people still don't have a wing or a horn for the alicorn 5 MONTHS after valentines says it all. Take advice from the people who play the game as we are the ones who spend hard earned money on the game sometimes

Wow I guess I was really lucky on this one. This morning I got the popup saying there was a dragon egg, collected from my roost and got the egg. I assumed it was meant to work as the manticore egg did. A really rare drop only after the first one.

carleeclub
06-28-13, 03:16 PM
I have to be honest. I am really tired of the random drop eggs. I have been a devoted player for many many months and still lack the Alicorn. I did not get excited about the new dragon egg because I know the pattern. it is a very slim chance I will get it considering my experience with the game.
A devoted player, who has given so much time to the game, should be able to obtain the egg without spending a lot of money or hoping to be one of the few that recieves a lucky "drop".
The game play has to change or many are destined to leave.
Everyone deletes games when they stop being fun.

06-28-13, 03:45 PM
You know it's kind of funny. I installed dragon story because I got a goal, but I thought it was kind of fun for a while and though I might keep playing past all the Castle Story goals. Then I realized the entire game was waiting a day for dragon egg that inevitably was not the dragon egg I was looking for...

I deleted DS as soon as I got he last goal.

This update had promise, but if I wanted to play DS, I'd play DS.

Frustrating and silly. Glad I play for free.

06-28-13, 04:10 PM
We did not have to wait for the manticore egg why do we have to wait for a dragon???? I don't understand when the alicorn was the same and we had no control over if we got it or not. I still have not gotten my glimmer trove after emailing for help and don't understand this game sometimes. Don't get me wrong team lava games have been good to me but I took something out. Of my control and put it in mine by purchasing the dragon. However I would like to get the free dragon and the goals. Thank you for allowing me to voice my frustration.

06-28-13, 05:41 PM
Just collected from roost. No egg. 22 hrs to go. Haha this is like alicorn all over again. At least there is no goal until I get the egg. I hate to see uncomplete goals.

06-28-13, 05:59 PM
I have yet to receive even one badge. No luck with alicorn either and I play frequently. I am about to quit playing if I don't see an egg in a day or two. Have enjoyed the game but am growing weary of the rare random drops and goals.

mamareader02
06-28-13, 07:55 PM
Even though I both bought AND found an egg,I really think everyone should the goals,not when you get lucky-please TL,do not turn Castle into the frustration that is Dragon Story,a few chance items are ok,but players like Castle because you used to be able to work hard on your kindom and guarantee get rewarded,if they wanted a game based on chance,they would've gone to Dragon.

No unicorn here,,, you would think they would start letting the rest of us players have her while some castles have 3-6 if not more,, what's the big deal on her, why keep her away from us players ,,she only drop energy once a week. I have two school for that. I get energy daily I want her I don't care if she does any thing ,,please let the rest of us have her ,, it's been almost 6 months trying to get her

wait until you get the egg. then it's a laundry list of " go get this" and "go do that" one of which requires gathering a rare drop of Golden Fleece from sheep. it's a long term goal,.. I say just play and let it happen, as there seems little return from getting it. coin and XP. I have no need for that.

Whilst I don't mind these goals that are based on random drops (I just play and wait and see), it would be nice to also have some goals that are achievable by actually doing something. I miss having a purpose for crafting, harvesting etc.

I know what you mean!!! I hate to complain but the Alicorn and T&T are my only goals. If I am lucky enough to get a dragon egg from my roost (which I am guessing I am not that lucky) it sounds like the quest to hatch it will be fun. They should have made a new area for us to expand to to get the egg instead of making it a random, "rare" drop. Like they did with Sabina. Ya know???

You will need to expand to the forgotten roost. It's 25 wisp lanterns to do so. As soon as I did the "view" goal & paid the coins as 25 wisp lanterns I got the dragon egg. It takes like 2 days to incubate in the magic forge which mines is doing now.

With there being a unicorn statue and a real unicorn, a dragon statue and now a real dragon, does anyone think a 'beast' of some sort might make an appearance in the game at a later stage or do you think the beast statue represents the manticore?

The roost will occasionally drop another manticore egg, but it is a rare drop. You can also purchase manticore eggs using gems.


It says there's a Dragon egg somewhere, but where is it? I don't see one. It asked me if I know how to hatch it, so does that mean I have an egg? If it means I have an egg, where is it?

I assume you are referring to the popup that says that dragon eggs are available from the forgotten roost. That popup is just informational. It does not mean that you have an egg.


It's in you inventory. I just got it this morning.

the egg will be in your inventory ONLY if it dropped from the roost.

Like I stated in my previous comment, The game is quickly becoming boring. I have collected twice from roost and no egg. I go on an adventure EVERY day, and no Alicorn. Sorry TeamLava, this WAS an awesome game. But now, when devoted players continue to work hard at their Kingdom, they are NOT awarded. While others get multiple eggs and defend the game. Deleting VERY soon Im afraid.

I'm with everyone else on this rare dropping non-sense. I too have done a new quest everyday and I now have a total of 3 Alicorn horns and not a single wing. I've given up hope… it's annoying and ridiculous. Now I get to go thru all this all over again waiting for an egg? I'm thinking I'm over this game.

I've completed 9/10 badges over a week ago so that must mean I play ALOT so it isn't about putting in the effort. I hate the randomness of the random drops in random kingdoms.

I think they're probably aiming to make this game more like Dragon story (which I imagine must be their most profitable game given all the updates it gets), only gem buyers who constantly speed with gems for more chances at being "lucky" will get everything the game has to offer in a timely fashion.

That's okay, I dont drink coffee and I whine frequently. ;) I hate the random drops, too. Its taken all the fun out of the game. What was helpful for me is to take breaks from the forum, where all the intensity of wanting it to Hurry Already just makes me unhappy.

06-29-13, 03:09 PM
I'm not crazy about random drops either but, by having them its kind of an incentive for me to keep playing, since I've finished all my goals ( other than the ones which involve random drops). I've expanded my kingdom fully and I'm on level 30. I finish my goals way before the next update comes. So, it kind of gets slightly boring. The randomness makes me want to come back and play and see if I could get a wing or a badge... Besides, what's the hurry. Lets sit back and enjoy the game. (Trust me, you'll reach level30, complete all expansions and finish all non-random related goals in no time at all).

Teamlava shouldn't be making castle story like dragon story though. If we wanted it we would download it and play it. But we don't we want to play castle story and they should keep it as castle story. Stuff the whole random drop thing as people clearly don't like it. Some may be lucky and get alicorn parts, and dragon eggs and badges pretty quickly. I just don't think it's a fair game to play with the random drops. I love the game and so do many others bed just wish that teamlava, like I said in a previous comment, would listen to the people who play on a daily basis. They have to listen to the criticism about the game as well as the compliments. We're not just doing it to complain because we haven't got what we want. I get the rare drops of spell books and whatever. But when it's a new quest line it should be there ready for everyone at the same time. Rosewaterlily this wasn't a rant at you lol just wanted to pick out what you said about turning it into dragon story

10 more mithrils again? And I thought it is supposed to be rarer than finding a polky dot dragon dancing in the town square. Lol, anyway, no eggs today too.

I made The net. It needs 10 mithril, 50 wool, 5 enchanter essence.

Next quest: you need 50 cabbages (you better prepare for it...)
Next: you need 5 longsword.
Next: you need 50 library record (you have to ask neighbours to send...so it will take 2 days.) I am currently here. Wont skipnbecause it takes 200 gem.

I got my egg this morning from The nest. I skipped The book quest, made through others (with some speeding)

Hope it helps others.

I'm with everyone else on this rare dropping non-sense. I too have done a new quest everyday and I now have a total of 3 Alicorn horns and not a single wing. I've given up hope? it's annoying and ridiculous. Now I get to go thru all this all over again waiting for an egg? I'm thinking I'm over this game.

Do you have the rainbow? I just realised in love shack, the rainbow comes before ailcorn. I only just got the letter goal (part 4) which leads to rainbow, and thought... Because I'm lev 30, had horn for ages no wing, that maybe we have to do the rainbow goal first . I'm doing 9th badge, brewer, so can't do the rainbow goal just yet, but , wondering if maybe that's why some of us have had no ailcorn for months ???

Those of you that have ailcorn , did you do rainbow first ???
Those that don't have you done the rainbow goal??

Does everyone who has the dragon goal , already have ailcorn???

What is the "rainbow" goal? The Magic Garden, or that pink arch thing? ( I amon my phone now which does not have the game on it). 'Cause I have both, and have needed a wing forever.

I don't think the dragon is their trying to make it like dragon story. The same way we didnt think of monster story with the manticore. Or bakery story with all the pies and lemonade. Every section of the game has a fun end objective. I just hate waiting to get to the end. I have up on the trials and tributes goal. I refuse to spend gems on the dragon. I have three alicorns and just finally got my carriage.

This dragon will take me appx three months to find, I'm sure. Which sucks!

Pink arch. So you have that? Cos I only just got the 'letter part 4' goal from Thomas. I don't normally collect from Thomas because its hardly anything, then part 4 came up- send 50 glimmer dust, I looked at love shack and noticed that goal comes before ailcorn, so I thought maybe after doing the rainbow, you can do ailcorn. But if you've had pink arch for ages and no ailcorn then it makes no diff. Or did you skip that goal?

No egg so far. Honestly hope it isn't as rare as the alicorn parts.

I have a few mithril and have been getting dark cave formations lately, and have been maxed on cabbages for a while. But I shall not expect anything and be content with my three manticores and zero alicorn parts.

after you collect all the scrolls, the next thing you must gather is a diamond from a deep mine (rare drop) a burning ember from the sands adventure (rare drop?) and Golden Fleece from sheep (yes, rare drop too). I hope this is the last before I eventually toss the egg into the magic forge

I've been reading the comments on this topic and I am lucky to have gotten my dragon egg early. I think it's really important to highlight some of the things that has been mentioned by others so far. Firstly, the only way to get the dragon egg is from the Forgotten Roost so don't buy it from the market because that would be a complete waste of time and gems.

Secondly, I've upgraded my library to level 5 but even days of playing and waiting didn't seem to earn me any library books so I decided to skip that bit. After that there are a few other goals that requires certain items like cabbages, long swords, building nets, etc etc so do stock up while you can if you want to breeze through.

I'm currently on "Incubation Plans" where you have to collect 50 library records from friends. Sorry couldn't upload pictures, was so happy I was coming along with the dragon egg that I forgot to capture pics =P
Please do share if you've advanced further than my progress and feel free to add me if you would like to see how far I've come on this quest. My storm Id is ahilah. Good luck guys and don't give up, it's quite a challenge and I've only got 3 out of 10 badges on my "Trials and Tribute" quest so still a long way to go!

Confirm the required materials:
after collect 10 bestiaries in library. You will give Sabina: 30 wools, 30 water, and 30 milks.
Then you give thurston: a wisperweight net(made in magic forge 8 hours:10 mithrils,50 wools,5 enchanted essences) ,and 20 hides. But the wisperweight net can be skipped with 50 gems.
So skip it if it's too much for you.

How ridiculous, I spent 30 mithrils within a week, 20 for deep mines and 10 for the dragon quest,luckily I have had 40 something of them long prepared in the last few months out of boredom. but 30 means two magic forges in full power run in no stop for a solid month, let alone thousands of needed silvers. I can't speak for everyone,but it seems impossible for those who is new and doesn't have the stash.

This type of plan is making me lose interest in the game. I've really enjoyed it for the most part, but the rarity of some random drops makes me not care any more. Golden apples are another irritant as is getting plenty of some item, like the tails, until you start using them, then you rarely get them.

It seems to me that TL are concentrating too hard on the top 5% or so of players that would be on level 30, have cleared all land, and be well and truly powering through the Trials. Most players do not belong to this forum. Most players do not have the means to gather the hundreds of silver it will need to make 10 mithral, even if they eventually get an egg. Most players do not have money to spend on gems to keep up with cooking and collecting to maintain adventures, as well as building and upgrading to have Level 5 libraries to collect rare books. To make so many of these new items "rare" and "random" just makes a joke out of all the hard work that goes ino getting this far.

i fully support that there is SOME fun random item in the game, like the alicorn horn that I have been chasing for months, but I think TL have gone too far. Now there is too much luck and randomness involved, with no certainty that regular playing and strategy will have gains.

I vowed I would continue with the game because of that elusive alicorn horn. Now even that doesn't seem special because its one of so many random things going on. Who is playing games here, TL? Us or you?

I don't know how to put it in a nice way so pardon me if I offend you.

IMHO, TL is going in the right direction catering to the top 5% of the players. This is because there are already 200 plus goals in the game that can cater to all players at different stages of the game. The only group that will be alienated will be the pioneers and veterans who run out of things to do. These people are the most likely to quit out of boredom.

Bearing in mind that whatever that is released will eventually be reachable by those not as advance players, TL should will focus on the end game. However, the dragon egg update is indeed a bit overkilled. While the randomness is still bearable, the start of the chain quest should not be dependant on a random drop. I hope this will be the one and only update that is of this nature. Imagine waiting for a long time for an update but when the update comes, you can only enjoy it base on your luck. That's no good at all.

Replying some questions:

Mithrill is not as rare as it used to be before, deep mines drop relative "often".
Castle story can be played through without spending money on it, just playing with all games that come as quest, you will earn enough gems for buying necessary things like Apple tree.

Only thing that you have to play often with it, better play on your phone, spending your energy every 2 hours.

Does everyone who has the dragon egg have the 4th shard? Because I can't craft mithril. (I only have 3) and can't see egg in forge, so maybe if you have the fourth shard, that's when you can get the dragon egg right away ??? Maybe not so random.

I had horn for ailcorn for months, level 30, and only just completed the fourth part of the Agnes letter goal. As soon as I crafted the pink rainbow, I got the wing a few hours later from an adventure. Though Maguar wrote their unrelated goals, if you havnt done so, collect from Thomas, complete 4th letter to Agnes's which unlocks pink rainbow, and you may get the wing/horn- because each part of the letter I completed, progress flashed on ailcorn goal, though I havnt gotten anything new for it.

For dragon egg I'll rotate my taberneum as I kept doing until I got the third shard, and hopefully after the fourth the dragon egg drops from roost. May not, so does anyone who dosnt have 4th shard, have the dragon goal???

As far as I know, we don't know how to hatch it, yet. The chest with a question mark you found in the magic forge is used to hatch manticore's eggs (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?50542-Manticore) (follow the link to see a screenshot of the "recipe" in the magic forge).

The message you received was most probably the one that is in this very thread, post#2 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?54528-Castle-6-27-2013-Update-The-Dragon-Egg&p=672593&viewfull=1#post672593).
This is just a teaser so that you go and look for the dragon egg, which is a rare random drop from the Forgotten roost. It doesn't mean you have already got your egg and it is hidden somewhere in your inventory, or in your forge, or elsewhere. It means you have to collect from the Forgotten roost, cross your fingers and hope to be lucky enough to get a dragon egg. Dragon eggs are orange, you can see a pic taken by Lilipipi on post#2 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?54528-Castle-6-27-2013-Update-The-Dragon-Egg&p=672593&viewfull=1#post672593).

To make things more interesting, manticore eggs are also a rare drop from the Forgotten roost.
Manticore eggs are purple, and they show in your inventory as Unhatched egg.
This is what manticore's eggs look like:

Hey folks, thanks for all your feedback. We hear you loud and clear, and we'll take this into account when making future updates!

I do want to say that if at any point in time we did something like boost drop chances after a speed up, we would definitely make sure our players know about it, loud and clear! But I can assure you that all our drops are truly 100% random right now, and aren't influenced by gem spend at all.

For those of you still waiting on the Dragon Egg, don't despair! It's way more common than the Unhatched Egg, or the Alicorn parts - you'll see it soon. Thanks for sticking with us, and keep the feedback coming :)

OK, I've been collecting from three libraries every opportunity since the dragon egg became available. I have a dragon egg in inventory, though I do not remember actually collecting one from the forgotten roost.

So far, I have a grand total of zero volumes of the Encyclopedia Bestiary. I have libraries at Lvl 3, 4, and 5. Should a Level 3 library drop these, or only level 5? The game simply says 'higher level', and is not specific. I understand rare and random drops, but there seems to be something very screwy with the TL algorithms for this.

081702
07-01-13, 03:23 PM
I thought my libraries were a higher level. I could have sworn I upgraded them during the valentine and wizard school goals. I am now trying to upgrade them because I don't want to wait 50 years to finish these goals. Again, if I collect the 50 gems beforehand I'm skipping!

Before the trials and tributes no one really complained about the goals and the random drops. I don't think they are unfair or unbalanced. I've seen people get numerous manticore, carriages or decorations. I just kept going on adventures with annoyances of just being gifted with overgrown benches.

Now the T&T goals do stink. However, these goals haven't been out for more than a week. We can collect from the roost, what once a day? It's not that terrible. Now if someone goes a month or two without an egg dropping, then I'd understand getting up in arms.

Thank you, and I also appreciate that you took time to post a response. I feel a little better now about this, especially after others spoke up and said they didn't get a dragon egg after speed-ups.

I received the dragon egg without speeding up the forgotten roost. Me too. I got my dragon egg couple days ago and I didn’t speed up anything. I have 4 level 5 libraries and on the first day after I got my dragon egg, 2 of my libraries dropped Encyclopedia Bestiary then after that nothing at all but yesterday 1 library dropped 2 volumes of Encyclopedia Bestiary so I have 4 volumes of Encyclopedia Bestiary now.

OK, I've been collecting from three libraries every opportunity since the dragon egg became available. I have a dragon egg in inventory, though I do not remember actually collecting one from the forgotten roost.

So far, I have a grand total of zero volumes of the Encyclopedia Bestiary. I have libraries at Lvl 3, 4, and 5. Should a Level 3 library drop these, or only level 5? The game simply says 'higher level', and is not specific. I understand rare and random drops, but there seems to be something very screwy with the TL algorithms for this.

I can confirm lv 3 library drops the book as well.

My luck must be the worse going. I have played CSS from when it first started. I'm level 30 and gift and visit all my neighbours daily. I have 5 horns but no wings. I have no adamant or option to craft it. No dragons egg. All my buildings are level 5 and I'm thinking of quitting.i love random but this is taking it well beyond!

Just completed Incubation Plans and I just received my new goal Raw Materials. The goal requirements are as below:
Find 1 large diamond (these drop from the deep mine)
Get 1 Golden Fleece (this drops rarely from sheep)
Get 1 burning amber (adventure from desert sands)

Anybody had any luck so far with these items? Pls do share! Thanks.

Hi All!

I did get a Dragon Egg, last week as a drop from the Roost. I did not speed up the Roost. I am collecting the 10 Encyclopedia Bestiary now. I have 4 out of 10. I have three, level 5 libraries. It seems that this quest line will take time, as there are some rare drops. My approach is simply to play the game per usual, and know that things will drop eventually. I, too, prefer to have some linear goals. That is, goals that are clearly defined and that I can work toward them. But,it seems that TL is experimenting with these random drops more and more. As a level 30 player, I like Castle and know that the quests will get trickier. But, I still like some linear goals too.
Happy Dragon Egg hunting, folks!

:)

The drop rate you're getting is similar to mine. I usually get 1 book, 2-if I'm lucky per day. I have 3 level 5 libraries. I was really happy when an Encylopedia dropped with a spell book at the same time! But that only happened once for me.

I finally had one of these books drop last night and another this AM after adding a 4th library, but that one is still at L1 as I'm short on coal.

Oh yeah, and working on completing Ivy's Hut 'cause I need Glimmerdust, also working on Observatory.

You need an item from an adventure unlocked in sabina's storyline in order to expand to the forgotten roost.

I just learned this recently myself. Tap on everything you want to collect from, then click the Home button, then open the game back up. It will pause for a moment, then collect from everything at once. Fangbeasts and other creatures that would have popped up while collecting will still pop up, though.

Does shave a few seconds off the playtime.

Okay, I managed to get to the next round. After getting the diamond,fleece and amber, you will need to make a diamond glass in magic forge (a diamond +50 jewels +30 coals) which will take 2 days, and a fiery potion in potion shop (an amber +10 lumin essence) which will take 2 days as well. Luckily I have all of them ready, so will see the result in 2 days...

Whoa! 10 lumin essence requires 50 earth wisps, each earth wisp needs 5 coals, that's 250 coal right there, plus another 30... I'm struggling with daily play just to make one or two wisps if I'm lucky... Where is that darned coal mine???

Can the Diamond, Amber, or Golden Fleece be collected before you get the quest needing them? I just sent my knights on the desert quest, not realizing my next quest (I'm on the asking friends for books part of the quest line) for the dragon would require them to go on that quest, so I did it too soon... And should I start collecting from sheeps in hopes to get the fleece?

I use to wonder the same thing UNTIL I finished all my expansions. Now I'm expecting to be maxed out on lanterns by next week. After that I'll be working on maxing out my lumin essence. Once you are fully expanded, you'll be in the same boat.

I hate this whole random drop thing. It's ridiculous. It doesn't treat all game players fairly! It's a quest line so should be available to everyone who plays the game at the same time. Not by some stupid random drop. I think by the fact that some people still don't have a wing or a horn for the alicorn 5 MONTHS after valentines says it all. Take advice from the people who play the game as we are the ones who spend hard earned money on the game sometimes

Dude, why are you rushing through? If I am you, I will take it easy and enjoy the game.

It also happened once for me, I got an Encyclopedia with a spell book from one library at the same time on the first day. After that 4, I got 2 volumes of Encyclopedia after collected twice from all of my libraries yesterday. Then I got 2 volumes of Encyclopedia at once from one library again just now, I'm happier when it dropped 2 volumes of Encyclopedia at once! I have 8 now, 2 to go... \('o')/

Keep getting library records even I have finished them long ago.... Now in my inventory, the number of library records has long passed a hundred. It's a terrible BUG, cos I may sent a few hundred or even a thousand neighbor requests for the records before... As the speed of 20 responses a day, how long it gonna last??This seems to be the answer to everything, give it a shot:


1) First, you can try force-closing the app and starting it again. To manually quit the app on an Apple device supporting multitasking, first press the phone's home button to get to your home screen. Then hit your home button twice, and a bar should appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold the game's icon there until it wiggles, and hit the red "-" button that shows up. (Make sure you do this with the icon at the bottom of your screen and not the icon on your actual home screen. If you get a message about deleting the app, you're looking at the wrong icon.)

2) If this doesn't help, or your device doesn't support multitasking, turn off (power down) your device, turn it back on, and restart the app.

3) Try deleting the application, then download the latest version of the App and reinstall it. This will not affect or remove your game data, since it is saved on our servers.

This seems to be the answer to everything, give it a shot:

I don't think it's an app problem,cos it's okay with all the other quests, besides, I normally force close CS dozens of times everyday,I have a bad wifi connection that's why. So it must be a loophole in its programming. But if I reinstall the game, everything will need to be reloaded,it's quite a slow process... And since there is no more neighbor-related quest in the sight, I think I might just give it a break....until it becomes a real obstacle.

I don't want to purchase gems just to skip the "How Clean Is Your Library" quest, however......all the gems I collect I keep accidentally using, lol. I'm just glad we finally have a new quest out.

Let me guess, you're missing the adventurer's badge, aren't you?

Just got my adventurer's badge this morning! I guess that makes not having a dragon egg a little easier to bear.

I got the egg that Friday right after to new quest came out (due to my collection schedule). I've collected from my library at every opportunity but have ZERO books. I don't even receive spell books from it either and my measely collection of those are all from adventures. My library is fully upgraded. What's the deal TL? Is there an issue with my account or am I that unlucky?

This seems to be the answer to everything, give it a shot:

I've tried that force close thing and the app for whichever game I'm playing is never at the bottom. Boo! Ill uninstall right now to see if that gives me luck. Been collecting from level 2-5 libraries every 8 hours and no books still.

Last night the game froze and took my 8 gems to speed up a dumb sword. Now I need twenty more again to skip this hideous and tedious part.

Mine seemed to be doing the same thing. Everything slowed to less than a crawl. A creep, really. But this morning it picked up a little, so hang in there! And frankly, these goals that are random I don't really care about very much. You can't do anything to work on them, so I figure, why stress about it? Things will show up when they do. The game has eventually chucked up everything I've needed to get this far. It will spew up the rest at some point. In the meanwhile, I'm redecorating. :)

Is the burning ember ONLY available through the sweet feast adventure?cause I've done it at least 4 times and nada.can we have some info on whether or not after the first time you do the desert sand adventure looking for it,do you have to keep on it,or is it possible to get through by any adventure?

CottageRose
07-05-13, 12:01 PM
I don't know if it is available through other adventures. It said something like 'in the heart of the desert', so I kept doing that one adventure to get mine.

It says
"Adventure in the Desert Sands"

Imho it means only "Traverse Desert Sands" can bring it back. Not that I have completed these goals or work as a CS developer :p

Just finish making fiery potion and diomand glass, and finally get myself a dragon. But notice this, a recipe reveil itself in magic forge,the way to hatch a dragon egg (dragon egg+burning ember+10 lumin essence)*2 days. Which means whenever you get another dragon egg, you can't hatch it unless you also have the amber and 10 lumin essence,it's not an easy quest.

Thanks for the pep talk Queenzod. It just seems like I've been drawing the short straw lately on receiving stuff. I'm still waiting on a wing. I've only got two badges so far (the miner and the explorer). I guess I'm one of those that like the do A, B, and C to get item A. It been a lot of missions lately based on random "rare" drops.

Ok now I'll get off my soapbox and put it away for awhile. :)

Congrats, skipped with gems faster I have never skipped goals with gems yet because they don't have time limit so I'm not in rush (except the one like market request with time limit but I also didn't skip with gems). I prefer to use my gems to buy gem items such as Wizard school, etc :o

I made The net. It needs 10 mithril, 50 wool, 5 enchanter essence.

Next quest: you need 50 cabbages (you better prepare for it...)
Next: you need 5 longsword.
Next: you need 50 library record (you have to ask neighbours to send...so it will take 2 days.) I am currently here. Wont skipnbecause it takes 200 gem.

I got my egg this morning from The nest. I skipped The book quest, made through others (with some speeding)

Hope it helps others.

I have the egg and skipped the book goal as well. Now I need 4 more mithril.... can't make my own yet (only 1 shard). It appears it will be awhile before I will be able to hatch my egg! Will start stocking up on cabbage.

onemansmiracle

you should have skipped it with 50 gems if you have no 4th shard. Doing dessert adventure for 2 weeks, you will have enough gems.

I feel really stupid right now :( used all my mithril on upgrading a deep mine maybe two days before I got an egg & I haven't got any more [mithril] since that. Oh well, it makes waiting for books that never comes perfectly ok... (But still, why are these bestiaries such a rare drop?)

Lv2 libraries will do the trick, build more for the temporary use and sell them later. It's easy to build and quantity will make a difference. For the net quest, I think skip with 50 gems is a bargain.

I originally had only 1 at level 5 which took ages to give me a book. I then built a new one which dropped a book immediately. Then built 2 more and both dropped books on the first collection. I now have 4 libraries with only 1 at level 5 and the others ranging from lvl 1-3. I have 8 books within 2 weeks. You can give it a try

I have 4 Libraries - two at level 5 and two at level 3 - still no books. I rarely even get spell books from them?? So, I skipped getting the books and moved on. Sent request to 25 neighbors 3 hours ago and 13 have responded.. 20 more requests tomorrow.. hopefully only 2 more days and I can move on! Still waiting for my 2 badges and Alicorn wing. No drops from my tablet - which is a bit frustrating - only one shard.

Even though I both bought AND found an egg,I really think everyone should the goals,not when you get lucky-please TL,do not turn Castle into the frustration that is Dragon Story,a few chance items are ok,but players like Castle because you used to be able to work hard on your kindom and guarantee get rewarded,if they wanted a game based on chance,they would've gone to Dragon.

I purchased the dragon by accident :( now it's in my storage and I can't access it to hatch it. Can you tell me how to please?

I did the same. Had 11 mithril now have 1, and I'm up to the net for thruston. I just checked what I need for net, thought yep, have that, then looked at your post, and realised I just upgraded my deep mine the other day. Didn't even realise it used 10 mithril, I noted the beams and it said build, so I just upgraded. Now I have 1 mithril. Grrr- ah well, got 4th shard recently but it takes 50 silver to forge 1 mithril, which (silver) iv been using on sweet feasts, for the amber part. Making my third now, thinking after net, I can do several of those adventures, for amber. Now it will prob be weeks at least before I get to that bit because of mithril :/

From its gem price, my wild guess is its drop rate is 1/15. And alicorn part is 1/35. But for the first time,it's somehow much easier! I bet you will have it within a week.

No dragon egg yet for me, either. We all look forward to the updates, but with this one only starting with a random drop, not very much fun--especially after the stress of T&T. Thanks to all of the good information I have found on here, I am at least getting some things prepared & gathered ahead of time.
