Too bad I'm stuck on building an amphitheater for the Baron's silly hide and seek game. Completely forgot there buildings I didn't have due to lack of space for so long. Now waiting for fur. :(:(

So the start of update part 2 is collecting from theatre twice and that unlocks the glimmergate? My key has a few more hours to go

I can't craft the evil queen's statue. There's no where to craft it. I can craft the carriage, it requires 4 ornate blocks and 50 wools and some other things. But where do I craft the evil queen's statue? Help!!!

Yes, you collect from the theatre twice, then another quest line opens which require throwing 50 tomatoes and grabbing the key of doors back. Then you ram the glimmergate every two hours in total of 5 times. This unlocks the magic mirror which costs 80,000 coins. Then 2 more quests open to craft the queens carriage which needs 4 ornate beams, 50 wool and 5 red dye and takes 8 hours. And another quest to craft an evil queen statue which is locked for the moment for me. I'm just waiting on the 4 red dye to craft.

Can't craft the evil queen's statue, don't know where to do it. Don't see option in forge or work shop or potion shop or kitchen. Skipped 10 gems. Then will need to make feasts, each of the simple hearty spicy and sweet feasts each once. Then get to go to the glimmergate adventures to find 2 items: the dark night swords and something else i can't remember. Will take a few adventures to get those. The glimmergate adventure requires hearty feasts and lanterns. Not too bad.

10-17-13, 01:33 PM
So the big question is: can we use existing supplies and feasts? Or do we need to craft everything after the goals appear?

Excuse my prying, but do you do some of these and skip the longer ones with gems?

creolepraline
10-17-13, 01:39 PM
I'm still searching for the dang key! I won't complain and I won't skip like I did for Sabina. Because I refuse to be one of those people who throw gems at the game, then come here two weeks later and keep throwing conspiracies saying the game is dead and not being updated anymore.

Thanks TL! If for nothing else, I appreciate the hard work and detail that goes Into the storylines, buildings and characters. Something that cannot be done every week like we get in the other games. Every time, the long waits have been well worth it all!

JayUK69
10-17-13, 01:55 PM
Each to their own, but I don't see the point in skipping so many parts of a quest. We don't really get many big updates for this game, surely all the fun dies quicker if you just use gems to speed past everything. I only finished part one of the update on Tuesday, and this will probably take the next few days at least.

mikado86
10-17-13, 02:03 PM
So the big question is: can we use existing supplies and feasts? Or do we need to craft everything after the goals appear?

you need to COLLECT the feast itself from the kitchen, which means you can have both all the ingredients done and even the feast done, BUT dont collect it from the kitchen until you got the quest, or it wont count otherwise


Excuse my prying, but do you do some of these and skip the longer ones with gems?

Yes, I skipped some things.

GeorgeK
10-17-13, 02:11 PM
I wasn't given an option either to build the evil queens statue, when I hit, "Craft", it did nothing. In my workshop, the only new thing there was the Evil Queens Carriage, which I have built successfully. I did use gems to skip building the statue since I was not able to build it....after doing so, it said, "Completed", and rewarded me one statue, which should be in my inventory, which of course, is not. I still cannot craft one as there is still no option to do so, nor can I build any more carriages as that option has disappeared. The only option I have is to purchase one for 80 gems which I will not do considering I should already have one.

Right on cue, as always...another bug....TL, could you please fix this and may I please have my statue!?

Thank you.

I just scrolled past their screen caps as I didn't want to know too much in advance. Half the fun is working out what to do next. As I said though, each to their own, it just isn't for me. I'll enjoy it all unfolding over the coming days. It's been great having a really big update again. Not been this much fun since hitting level 30 ages ago.

I've collected for my theater twice but it didn't trigger anything. That's the little theater right?, not the amphi-theater? Maybe I need the key scroll first.? Hopefully tomorrow morning after my 5th dark cave adventure, ugh, it will show up finally.

I caved in and skipped the key part. Now I'm crafting the first of my bars thingies. Or whatever they're called. This looks like it will be a long and fun set of goals. I don't buy gold anymore so I'll take my nice time with it. Trials and tributes taught me that. I hope we get the lady in red to walk around the kingdom in the end? By time i finish we should be getting some more fantastic goals by Xmas!

You don't have to pay gems to craft them. They are like the unicorn statue. You can buy with gems or craft for free. (I assume someone might opt for buying them for gems if the skipped the goal.)

Thanks for uploading the goals images, they are a great help! But could you please let the pictures load so we can see all the images? For example, in the "Night glimmer sword" we can't see what is necessary to craft it, since the pictures aren't fully loaded.

Thanks!

You do not see the option yet as you are not on the quest for this item. Once you complete the quest you are on now, your following quests will help you unlock these items.

Please force close your game and check your inventory again. If anyone else is experiencing this issue, please try force closing the game first and see if the option to craft the Evil Queen Statue appears. Thank you.

10-18-13, 11:03 AM
The good news is every time you collect from the gate a "Golem" appears. Bad news is it's 10 hits and you might get a pickle or dust, rarely both. You need 30 of each to complete the goal. Let the killing begin :)

I am on my first Glimmer gate adventure. I've collected from the glimmer gate about 4 times and it has not triggered a Golem troll. I understand we need materials from it. I've deleted and re-installed my game twice. Any information about the Golem is appreciated.

Triple_K
10-19-13, 12:30 PM
No golems either... finished the 5 hits goal and collected my 6th time. I'm guessing that it's going to be after we craft that fancy looking blade after going on the adventures to get the items. U know, like how we had to get the swords first before the other monster creatures appeared.

The Glimmershard, otherwise known as "the Pickle," lol is used with the red dust to make the Night blade to beat down the queen. You need 30 of each, the shards drop more frequently than the dust, but whenever you kill a Golem you get at least one of them, sometimes both.

Yes, it only drops from the dark caves adventure. Which isn't as bad as the burning ember drop from the desert sands. At least with dark caves you can easily craft all materials daily.

Begging advice, should i use it on the mine to try to get a third, or just wait another year for the mine? My first two came from that awesome pig. Never got any from either deep mine (l2 and 4) or the new exchange. Sort of wish i hadnt spent all my jewels on that now. Oh well.

You can make them, but don't collect until the quest line opens up. I set the sweet feast and spicy feast cooking overnight as they take the longest. And when the quest opened up i collected them and they registered, which only leaves the other two which will only take 2 hours to complete.

I think you have to do the glimmer gate adventures to collect to two sword pieces. After those you then start on the golems if I'm not mistaken. I finished the statues, fed the greedy witch and am on my first adventure. Hope it doesn't take too much time. I don't want to be too far behind when the next part comes out in a few days. I'm also taking into consideration that we may get a huge update in a couple months. I don't buy gems to skip anymore. I want to savor this. But not where I'm WAY behind the other seasoned players!

You only get them from the glimmergate adventures. A little tip, when you get both parts, it disappears from your adventure list. Don't do what I did and send them on a standard one as after a few more parts of the questline, it comes back and you need another sword, so wait for the glimmergate adventure to open up, otherwise you have another day to wait before you can send them.

litab16
10-23-13, 08:06 AM
I've gotten the hilt and the blade. Then merged them. The next task is called Rock Smash where you have to beat up Glimmer Golems. One comes out each time you go to collect from the Glimmer Gate. I've beaten one so far. The Glimmer Golemns drop shards and glimmer fragments. You have to collect 10 of each of the droppings to complete the rock smash. You also must beat up five Glimmer Golems.

Ok. This is about the end of the line for me. I am at the stage of crafting all the feasts. I have just done some research and after this the task will be impossible. Why may you ask. Well the next step for that appears to involve mysterious venom. Well that is rarer than getting a smile from my mother in law. Second you need dragon scales. Now the real kicker sets in. At the moment I am only part way through trying to get my dragon. Up to the mirthil stage with only 2 to go. Have the wool, cabbages and long swords in stock so that is fine. However, then comes the random drops again for diamond, Golden Fleece and burning ember. Then once I finally get all that it is random again for dragon scales. So having these 2 bits going on at once has just made it impossible for me. Time to find a new game I think.

I've realized that the barracks contain only permanent adventures available to everyone. Only the castle has the Valentine's adventure available since anyone downloading the game after that particular update was no longer available would not have access to that adventure. The glimmergate adventures are no longer available once the quests are completed to get the hilts and blades, so those also would not be added to the barracks!

I am getting worried about all this pasta the knights are eating. One of them was on the Aitkins Diet, and is not happy at all about this carb-loading!! Another has a tomato allergy, and keeps using his sword to itch himself down the back of his armour. It's getting pretty dangerous now - how much longer will this go on?!

I'm in the same boat- hilt but no blade. Sent my guys out for the 4 th time this morning. Regarding your knights, tell them they can always trade their food when they're out in the glimmer wood. A friendly chipmunk will be glad to exchange a salad for the carbs. :)

And I got the blade on the first adventure. Wondering how many it will now take to get the hilt. No worries tho, since I will have to be collecting hundreds of times to have enough dragon scales for another part of the goal. This is gonna last til next year round Valentines or maybe even Easter.

I suppose this makes sense, but it's a strike against buying the building when so many are ambivalent or reluctant to pay the rather high cost. If it was a guaranteed help in every situation where doing double adventures was a plus I'd feel better for having spent so many gems on it. As it stands, for the neighbors who ask, I don't recommend they buy it except for aesthetics or kingdom completion purposes. Besides, how many players have enough resources for three adventures in two days?

Wow, how did you get past your first few days of playing the game with all of those simultaneous challenges?

Just complete what you can as you are able, and let the challenges work themselves out. Many goals in the game are long term, and take time to complete, work on what you can, when you can. It isn't a race to the finish line.

Wow I was going to gripe about preparing that darned sweet feast, but I guess I am lucky to have all the materials needed to get this far. Should be able to go on the glimmer gate quest tomorrow.

Wow, how did you get past your first few days of playing the game with all of those simultaneous challenges?

Just complete what you can as you are able, and let the challenges work themselves out. Many goals in the game are long term, and take time to complete, work on what you can, when you can. It isn't a race to the finish line.

I can see where outhouse01 is coming from on this. It's one thing to have simultaneous goals and even goals that take a while to complete, but after a while it gets frustrating crafting sweet feast after sweet feast and spicy feast after spicy feast then sending your knights out to have them return a day later with nothing more valuable than magic cement. I used gems to buy luminescence for the first couple of adventures to the dark caves because I wanted to keep my wisps to make lanterns to expand. Now I have all the expansions that don't need permits but one, so I've been crafting luminescence. Considering it takes me a day (if I can get on enough) to craft the feast and then 22 hours for the adventure, I'm alternating between sending my knights out to look for the burning ember so I can hatch my dragon and sending them out for the scroll for the key. At this point, there's no use for my barracks because I can't finish crafting the feasts in time to send them out on two adventures at once. Had I known that I would likely end up getting to the point where I'd consider skipping these adventures, I would have passed on the barracks. I'm not complaining about the randomness of things, but after a while it gets annoying that you can't progress in the game without spending weeks repeating the same tasks. Honestly, I feel like my knights are 2-years-old constantly having to tell them to do the same thing over and over and seeing no results.

I do have one complaint (and this may not be the best place to say it, but I don't feel like doing another post) it would be nice for those of us that started after Valentine's Day to have a better way to get red petals. I peeked at what you guys who are ahead of me are doing and it seems like there is going to be a big need for red petals. So, while I'm tediously crafting feast after feast for those good for nothing knights, I'm tediously buying and chopping tall grass hoping to have a small stockpile of red petals if I ever manage to get the scroll.

Sorry to double post, but I don't see an edit feature. Just wanted to add, that when you have to spend weeks trying to get past one task in an update it's pretty much the same as not getting an update at all.

Just to say that if any of you don't have a dragon AND you are NOT prepared to spend 360 gems (1 dragon scale costs 36 gems to buy) to skip, or if you have less than 10 dragon scales AND don't want to buy the rest to make up 10 (rare drops from dragon), you'd be better off leaving this set of goals and concentrate on the new glimmerbat goals as those are time-limited.

I got the hilt of darkness on the first adventure. Collected from my 4th gimmergate adventure this morning and got another hilt of darkness but of course u can only have one. Too bad it wasn't the blade of darkness. Anyways even after getting that I still don't have any adamant.
Any suggestions how to get adamant? I've had sir piggy for a good while now, he's never dropped any for me. Saw some people said the deep mine. My deep mines are both level 2 but upgraded one just now to L3. But I don't think it matters about the upgrade, right?

10-25-13, 01:20 PM
It theoretically doesn't matter what level your mine is. I've got most of mine from the deep mines. Mine are at level 4. I haven't upgraded to level 5 because you need...adamant!

I think I also received adamant from the Jeweler's Trade.

My knights are now seriously obese from all those pasta dishes and are off on their 8th adventure to look for the elusive Blade of Darkness. I am getting very concerned for the poor horses that need to carry them, and I am having to craft new armour every few days because of their ever-expanding girths. When they finally come back with what I sent them for, I will be banishing them to the tower in the Knights Hall to clean windows and repair brickwork for a week, to sweat off some of those extra pounds. Hmmmmmm or they could do drills running up and down the Glimmergate steps with Old Thomas on their backs, perhaps.

Has anyone taken longer than 8 adventures to retrieve the elusive Blade of Darkness?

After you craft the door the next step is fighting Greselda, theres nothing there to know, she is like the troll king only crappier, 99 hit points and doesnt drop anything but energy on hit and glimmergate "Items" when defeated

After that there is a "click here" quest, and then the next part is the text ones in the first page

Oh dear. I spent so much energy trying to get 6 red dye for the previous quest. I get 1 red petal for about 8 choping grass or dead wood. so i'tll take me 480 energy just to get the petals!

When you craft the carriage and statue, do you get to keep them as decorations?
Do you get the option afterwards to craft more or is it only gem purchasable.
If you craft two at once, do you get to have two decorations?

Yes, I don't have it either and have never received it. I've also tried the jewelers trade, sir piggy & the deep mines. I just upgraded my mine to a level three & will work on a level four. Hopefully that will make a difference.

(Speaking of the jeweler's trade, someone made the comment that mithril was quite common of a drop on this, even getting two. Well, I must be one of the unlucky ones because I've yet to get it all from the trade.)

Yep same here, tried all those too. I've had sir piggy a long time now, he's never dropped any for me. Had the deep mine since it first came out, never got any from there, and have done the jeweler's trade quite a few times but unfortunately nothing. I don't mind waiting but I hope it's going to be soon. I'm excited about completing the glimmergate goals, I haven't enjoyed a storyline this much since first started playing.

I've never received it before either so it feels like I never will and I refuse to skip it. Hopefully we don't wait to much longer! I've had mithril from the jewellers trade a few times actually would much rather the adamant though.

Yeah same with me I didn't even know you could get it before this goal was even out. Hopefully we get it soon and not still waiting for it by the time a new goal comes out. I know how long you can wait for random drops it took me over 6 months to find the horn and wing for the alicorn. Me too ! I've been trying to avoid reading what happens in part 3 of the goal.

i once got adamant from Sir P, but that's my only one. Have been doing jeweler's trade for mithril and that's a bit hit and miss. Once I got two, twice one, and plenty times none. I still need 1 for the whisperweight net and then 5 more for another bar...

I don't know how long or often you guys play; but I've had 3 adamant. I have upgraded a deep mine from lvl 4 to 5 and I was in the process of doing that to the 2nd one but ran out of Living Wood. Fortunately for me, I was very close when this quest line came about and so I was able to just dump everything into the quest w/o having to wait (for ages) for things like adamant / and to craft ornates.

The one things I wish they'd do is allow the Magic Forge to transmute 10 mithril to 1 adamant. I use to think Mithril was rare (and I suppose it is) but I was sitting on 15 when the quest rolled around. And getting adamant is nigh impossible.

I've been playing since the game came out and i have never had adamant so frustrating as it seems il never get any ! I wish that too as every time I've used the jewellers trade to try get adamant all I keep getting is mithril which is typical.

Random, and it WILL take a while.

Myself, the fact that the dang scroll took ~ a week to drop is now balanced against the fact that the hilt AND blade dropped consecutively over 2 days. :) I'm fortunate that I had an adamant ready to go!

I just got to this part of the quest myself. I really wish I had Barracks and could be sending out 2 quests per day instead of just one. Even if I'm extremely lucky, I'm looking at 2 days with mostly just waiting. And if I'm not lucky... I'll become as whiney as those Alicorn blokes who lack a part. ;) :P

After spending all of my energy trying to attract trolls, I've finally managed to get up to 19 Essence. I've now killed 5 trolls in a row, and no essence has dropped. Stupid trolls never appear when you need them to, and when they do, you can't even squeeze any essence from their pathetic lifeless corpses...

Oh no, Jimboser. I shall refer you back to your quote in this same thread - post 131. As you said to me, it takes time. I am stuck on the sadness potion and need 2 more fairie jars - which are more hard to come by than troll essence. Just enjoy and let Them come in due course. They will come, as you said - it is not a race. Ps I am still stuck on the dragon.

To those with no dragons and adamant - finish the previous quests first then play this one. There are quests where you collect the egg from the forgotten roost etc but it only seems to drop when you are in that part of the story line. I have stacks of adamant but that is because I have two deep mines and have upgraded them etc. Complete all your other quests then start this.
If it took minutes instead of days to complete these then it wouldn't be nearly as much fun

meme1098
11-06-13, 06:46 AM
But it isn't fun anymore when you're trying to get that one item in the only goal you have by doing the same adventure for weeks on end. If the adventure was for 8 or 12 hours instead of 1 day, it might not sting as bad each time the knights come back empty handed. Just venting my displeasure with the inequity among players since most had received both hilt & blade after just a few adventures and were then able to begin the start of Greselda goals.

I wouldn't exactly call it a whinge fest, I have the dragon egg and have had it for weeks. I need the burning ember. To get the dragon. It takes a full day at least to make the feast, especially hard when you need so much silver for the platter and also the light armour to go on the adventure. So it is only about every second day I can do that adventure. It starts to get boring (and frustrating) every time my fat knights come back with nothing. After weeks on end of just collecting from buildings for coin, and chasing the fairie jars, it does start to get tedious as there is no progression. A few days, a week wait, no problem - buts weeks?

I just had the same issue. After 3 weeks of trying to get the adamant, I broke down & spent 100 gems on the enchanted adamant bar (that was offered in the "recipe" in the forge). Since I had the other two items needed for the sword, I went ahead & crafted it.

Now my kingdom goals are still asking me to "craft enchanted adamant bar" or skip for 160 gems.

This definitely seems to be a glitch. Any info in this Maguar / Kooky etc?

You can only have one monster around at a time, so if you had a lurker hanging out somewhere in your kingdom, that would definitely prevent the golems from spawning!

Hi Glimmergate,

I hope you would look into the drop rate for Mysterious Venom. I've been playing for a VERY long time. I have 2 manticores and a magic garden. I collect from them DAILY. However, I've only received my THIRD venom way back last month. This is absurd considering that I've been playing since last year, although it was just with the magic garden then. I haven't even upgraded my conservatory to lvl 5. I don't want to spend 120 gems just for 4 more venoms.

Would you look into the drop rares of the venom, please?

Butterball I have passed your feedback on. Will let you know what I find out.

Any chance you can try find out why some of us can't craft an adamant bar because we have never once had adamant ? I collect from stuff more than once daily and been playing it since last year and never had it so I'm stuck on this goal with no hope of completing.

Do you have two deep mines? If you collect from them daily, you should be getting on average one adamant per week. The Jeweler's Trade in the Royal Exchange also has a fairly high likelihood of dropping adamant... maybe try that?

I've had 2 deep mines for quite some time and have never received one adamant.

Hi Glimmergate,

I hope you would look into the drop rate for Mysterious Venom. I've been playing for a VERY long time. I have 2 manticores and a magic garden. I collect from them DAILY. However, I've only received my THIRD venom way back last month. This is absurd considering that I've been playing since last year, although it was just with the magic garden then. I haven't even upgraded my conservatory to lvl 5. I don't want to spend 120 gems just for 4 more venoms.

Would you look into the drop rares of the venom, please?

Thank you !

It's the same for me! The drop rate for this venom seriously do need an increase!!

I also have 2 deep mines, now L2 and never received adamant. I have one from Sir Pigglesworth and that's it. Mithril from deep mines is also rare (as in maybe once a month for each mine? just had one each but not any for a long time before that)

Jeweler's trade is disappointing. Have done a lot now to get mithril but more than half the time I just get iron and silver, which I didn't need. Rarely a mithril and never adamant. It is not worth the 30 jewels and glimmerdust really.

Would be great if you could look into the drop rates for the mines and jeweler's trade.

In the middle of getting the second deep mine but I've noticed others have said they have 2 and they haven't had any so it seems it doesn't make a difference having two. I've tried the jewellers trade constantly and nothing from that. Seems as if I won't be getting any.

Just to add - I only have one deep mine, but I've had it from the very beginning & collect daily (sometimes 2x) & have never received adamant.

Whilst I am past this stage (I bought the scales as I am STILL waiting on the ember for dragon) I can confirm my 2 deep mines have very rarely dropped adamant. I got 2 from Sir Pig and maybe 1 from the mines which I have had for some time. Definitely not 1 per week as quoted by glimmergate. Also jewellers trade just throws me iron and silver and the occasional Merthyl, never adamant. Cheers

Yup that's the same with me. Never received it. I didn't even know it existed before this goal. I'm getting so frustrated as I've been trying to get adamant for weeks :(

Aaah, Aggwynn jumped the gun! These changes are still going through QA but hopefully will be out soon. Adamant will drop more often from lower level deep mines and the Jeweler's trade, and Mysterious Venom droprate from Manticores has been doubled.

These items are still rare (we need SOME items you guys don't have 99 of already!!) but they should be more accessible now :)

11-07-13, 03:57 PM
Woodlandlady, I did exactly the same thing as you! I have played the game from the beginning and have never got adamant so I got fed up and used my gems on the adamant bar. As you said, it didnt complete the quest. Not fun.

This issue is now fixed! If you double-payed to get through this quest please contact support@teamlava.com and they'll take care of you!

Yes they are! I brought the enchanted adamant issue to them late last night & they resolved it quickly today (despite having an update to get out). Then I had another issue where my game started over on level one & they responded right away to that too.

(I just wish I didn't have to spend 100 gems on enchanted Adamant to get them to see there was a bug! It looks like now I will get the long missing adamant that I no longer need! What do you say, Glimmergate? Can you help a girl out and help me get my gems back?!!)

The drop rate has changed, but the item is still extremely rare. Unfortunately, we cannot reimburse you for the Enchanted Adamant Bar you used Gems to get as that was not part of the issue. Sorry about that!

I didn't really expect it. (But I do think it is part of the issue because I wouldn't have used the gems if I had received the adamant from at least one of the sources!)

Ah, I read on the forum before that the level of your building is unrelated from how often you get rare drops. So a basic level mine would give as much adamant and mithril as an fully upgraded one. But this seems to imply to is different? Is that really true and does that apply to all buildings that drop items?

Thank you for addressing this issue so quickly. I do hope you will also resolve the lack of red petals soon, certainly if you are going to include the need for them in timed goals.

Hi Glimmergate!

Thank you for adjusting the drop rates! Would you consider increasing the droprate of venoms from the magic gardens as well? It seems that, after playing for a year, I've only received my THIRD venom from the magic garden and all three were from the garden. I probably have no luck with the manticores eventhough I have two of them. They never gave me venoms, most of the time furs and rarely gives me whiskers (I have 59 whiskers now). Not sure if anything's wrong with my manticores or maybe it's my game.

You means lower level deep mines has more chance to drop adamant??? Is it true???
I already upgraded my two deep mines to level 4, and it tooks many materials and times.
(I've been playing everyday for months, never got adamant from deep mines. I've got only ONE from sir piggle.)
I read before the level is not related with drop rates. what's happening??

I doubt lower level mines will now have a higher chance than higher level mines, just a higher chance compared to what it was before (but still lower than higher level mines). But according to people on this form building level had no impact on drops so I am interested to hear otherwise from TL.

Yes, I just noticed the same thing. After you beat the golem five times, you have to adventure to glimmer gate yet again, get the hilt of light and the blade of light. Not sure what happens after that as I'm on that part right now.

What happens after Griselda is arrested? There is no other link for this on what to do next. I have no more goals.....

I've been doing the adventure for days hoping for the Blade of Light to drop. Just a while ago I clicked on my castle to collect and there was a message that flashed. I wasn't expecting that so unfortunately didn't get to really read it but I definitely saw the words Blade of Light. Something like I can no longer collect the Blade of Light or something to that effect. There was definitely a message though. Anyone experienced this as well?

Yes, you can get adamant from the Jeweler's Trade. It is still considered a rare drop though.

Don't hold your breath though. I must have done at least 10 of those trades and more than half the time you don't even get mithril. I never got adamant. Somewhere else TL did say that they have now changed the drop rate for adamant for the deep mines but it is still rare. I certainly still haven't got one from my mines since then, or ever. Thankfully Sir P has been kind to me, not that it matters a lot as I still need the ember and diamond before I can think about using adamant.

I seem to be getting more venom than before, so perhaps the rates have been increased? Mind you, I didn't have trouble making those bars (mithril were my weakness) so I may always have been lucky.
