View Full Version : Castle Story: 10/24/2013 Update - Glimmerbat Habitat

Boo!

Today is a very exciting day for us!

For our update today, we will release the final part to the Glimmergate series that will wrap up the story (please update to version 1.1.6). We hope you enjoy the conclusion!
Don't worry, the fun won't end there. Without spoiling it for anyone, future updates post-Glimmergate will be about something else ;)


Also, Halloween is almost here and Castle Story is going to celebrate it by giving our players the chance to have a pet Glimmerbat in their Kingdom!

If you are level 10 and have the human forms of Old Thomas and Ivy, a quest called "Spooky Flight" can be found in your Quest Book. Tap on the quest in your Quest Book to start it!



Glimmergate and Aggwynn

The Glimmerbat is a limited item. Once the quest expires, it will no longer be dropped from the Adventures.

Special note: After you defeat Greselda, to get the next set of goals, you will need to be on level 27 or higher.




The Glimmerbat Habitat actually works a little differently and will not come fully upgraded upon Gem Exchange. However when you do purchase the Habitat, you will be able to fully upgrade it by continuing the list of provided Goals at no cost of additional Gems. Hope this answers your question.

Got my dead wood and upgraded then the game reset and I lost it all. But you have to adventure to the dark caves after that. Guess I have to wait until tomorrow since you can only get 20 requests/day

I bought the 5 glimmer rocks as I didn't want to keep doing dark cave adventure to get them to drop. I upgraded, but now is asking for a glimmer bat, you can't buy it anywhere apart from the upgrade box.

Mine has the request for the upgrade, but nothing at all about the spooky wood as you show here.

I am in the process of doing the upgrade and it requires:
10 living wood
30 water
35 sap
5 red dye

aimeeq
10-24-13, 02:42 PM
I reported the issue (not really a sync issue since it registered the upgrade) in Bugs. I have to wait for my knights to come back tomorrow anyway, so it's not really a big deal for me

You're on the first upgrade. When you've done it you'll get the goal to do the next upgrade which does require spooky wood

10-24-13, 07:07 PM
OK, "On The Fence" should no longer require having 15 dead wood. You still need it for the habitat upgrade (you can use the button in the Upgrade payment window to ask your friends), but players who already upgraded their habitat will not be blocked by needing extra wood.

Thanks everyone, hope you enjoy the updates :)

Hi GlimmerGate,
I did two level upgrades to the habitat, and then the got the dead wood goal to request from neighbors. I'm collecting requests now.
But, my habitat has been re-set to level 1, so I lost materials and have to do the first two levels again.
I really like the new quest line and story characters. However, it is disappointing about loosing materials.

Thanks.

Hey eastie, unfortunately that sounds like the result of a sync or connection error. There's not much I can do about it on my end, I'm afraid. You can try contacting support@teamlava.com about it, though. Sorry to hear that you lost materials :(

10-24-13, 08:04 PM
How can you tell what level is the habitat? I did the upgrades up to the deadwood requests this morning. Then a little while ago the request disappeared out of my goal book and when I go to the habitat it shows I'm at level one but have most of the deadwood collected. Does this make sense? Usually when you click on a building it shows the name and level but mine doesn't. Just says current level 50/10 hrs. Guess I'm confused

Are glimmer fragments new or did I miss them previously? They look like piles of glimmerdust except that they're red. Got some from the glimmergate for the first time just now. I'm only allowed forty total in my inventory.

Incidentally, I'm only allowed fifteen spooky dead wood (my ever lovely neighbors are ensuring I'm maxed out on that one. Thanks bunches, guys).

These quests always require red petals, and I don't get them often because I started playing after the valentine's special.

Please advice how do I get red petals without having to spend gems. Thanks.

Apart from the Valentine plants (which I note you won't have),red petals are also random drops from the following:

Ivy's Hut
Tall Grass
Old logs
Ferns
Plant in log

Hope this helps.

That's why I spent 40 gems buying them. I rarely use gems to skip or speed up, but i'm still waiting on the hilt of light from the glimmergate adventures and can only send knights out once a day as I didn't buy the barracks. You still have to send knights out on 2 ancient vaults adventure to complete eqch part of the quest, so best to buy 3 and hope you get 2 from the other adventures.

10-25-13, 01:56 AM
I think these "Glimmer Rocks" will be quite tricky to get in time. I had an ancient vault adventure ready to collect from the day before and got no rocks all. I wonder if they will drop more with the new app update (1.1.6) which i didnt have installed at the time. Otherwise i dont see this being achievable in 8 days with 1 adventure a day...

P.s. thanks for adding the steps in text.

So as wise rulers do we get to insist she stays in the basement until she's paid off her debt to the kingdom?

Hi, I play Castle Story on my iPhone 5. I have a couple of issues. First, I have been on Level 30 for a few weeks now - and the little star still doesn't have any blue color in it. How long does it take to move up from Level 30? This has not been an issue with previous levels. Secondly, my glimmerbat habitat does not have the option to upgrade. I saw in a previous thread that someone installed the update, but I don't have an update showing up. How can I fix this glitch? Thanks!

Level 30 is the cap level for the game.
Try restarting your device to see if you can then upgrade the habitat.
(make sure you are on the regular Castle game and not the Valentine Version.)

Thank you! The glimmerbat habitat can now be upgraded! :) When are you going to add more levels? One critique about the game, there is no confirmation pop-up asking if you want to spend gems on something done by mistake - i.e. accidentally speeding up an item. The game should have a pop-up asking "Confirm if you want to speed up this item" yes/no. I've lost 50+ gems by accidentally hitting something. It's maddening to have gems deducted for something I didn't mean to do. Any thoughts? Thanks!

I've accidentally spent gems too! Very aggravating especially since I only had a few left and I won't be able to purchase anymore for awhile. I also lost 8 wisp lanterns on accident on the forgotten roost expansion. I wouldn't mind if I wasn't so far away from 3200 royal points, but I'm only at 2520 royal points.

hey guys,

please try deleting the game and then re-downloading it from the app store. Let us know if that works. She should be the lady dressed in a white sparkly dressed walking around on your game board.

And yes, like glimmergate said, if you do see lady greselda walking around in your kingdom, please let us know!

tried deleting & re-installing a few times now! Still no greselda to be seen!
Any news if this bug has been resolve ?!

This is why I'm glad I don't rush through the quests or get items too quickly because as frustrating as it can be waiting for rare items to drop and seeing others progressing quickly at least any problems and bugs are well sorted by the time I get to those parts of the quest. I would find it a lot more frustrating to lose items and quests like so many others have done who have gotten there before me. Patience really is a virtue :)

I had a quest a few days ago to build a carriage for greselda that needed 50 wool. I didn't have 50 wool and the next day the quest was gone. It wasn't time limited and I didn't complete it. Where did it go?
I have the Thurston bravery quest and the glimmer bat one still to complete either.
Why would a quest just vanish?

Hey, kolakid, we're looking into why you can't see Greselda walking around your kingdom. If anyone else is seeing this issue, please let me know! Alternatively, if you DO see Greselda walking around, then also please post here so we can figure out if this is affecting all players, or only some players.

Thanks :)

No Griselda here as well.

That should explain it.

Actually it doesn't fully explain it. While that line is there for the first adventure to the ancient vault, upon sending it out your only reference then is in the glimmerbat habitat where spooky glimmer rocks are available "From Adventure". Assuming I don't get 3 more from the second ancient vault adventure I plan to do a through the glimmergate adventure tomorrow to get a blade of light and will see if I get glimmer rocks as well.

In other words, I'm inquiring whether the spooky glimmer rocks are treated the same as the alicorn horn/wing which can drop from any adventure or whether it's specific to the adventure such as the blade of light/dark components.

You have to adventure to the ancient vault or it won't be completed on your goal. It does say u need to adventure to the ancient vault, it has the picture next to it. I understand what your saying though. Can they be dropped from other adventures as well?

Item cap is 1, so EVEN if a second one would drop, which is the part that CAN happen, you cant have more than one, what I did though, it was buy it from the magic forge for 50 gems after I had started to craft my Day Glimmer Sword, why? because I can.

FYI no spooky glimmer rocks dropped from the Through the Glimmergate adventure so I'm back to using ancient vaults.

Has TL stated whether the 5 day limit is simply for the goal or will the bat be made unavailable subsequently? Given the very short timeline this seems like the introduction to Castle Story of the usual limited time offers that they use for the rest of their games.

I am also having the same issue. No glimmerbat after I completed the adventure. I have everything else and don't want to spend the gems to get it. Especially since I've never had a sale on the gems but a friend of mine has sales all the time. I love the game but have issues with the quirks.

Am on my 3rd try in the ancient vaults for the glimmer at. Starting to get worried about the timeline on the goal. What happens with the glimmer bat if we have not received it in time before the goal expires? I better not have to buy it with gems if the goal expires. Maybe it needs an extension since the goal said 'adventure' to the ancient vaults not 'adventureS' with an 's'.

The Glimmerbat is a limited item. Once the quest expires, it will no longer be dropped from the Adventures.

I haven't been on the forum for a while so was relieved, in a way, to find that others didn't get the bat on their first Ancient Vault adventure, and that I wasn't alone in having a bat-free zone! I'd got really excited as I pressed the Castle to inspect the goodies on my knights' return, only to get zilch! Wish, however, the quest line had shown the 'May take a few' tag that the blade and hilt of light quests have - at least I would have been prepared!! :rolleyes:

Yes, it's towards the end of the recent updates. If you still need the scroll you have a long way to go yet, as you'll need to craft new swords which has parts drop from adventures, plus potions need to be made further on, and building materials to stock up on.

I wonder if TL will engage in the same dynamic pricing as they did for the barracks, magic school, etc. once the timer starts running out.

Also this won't be the last we'll see of these limited time offers. They've done it in most of their other games and it's to encourage you to spend money on gems. Dragon story is pathologic for this and most of their other games have similar pressured incentives to open your wallet.

Spend accordingly.

Got the wee bat chappie on my third adventure. I was using Barracks as well as castle to venture. Would like to congratulate TL on not creating another Alicorn fiasco, where so many adventures were needed. Had there been a time limit there the Alicorns would be as rare as hen's teeth.......oh wait they are, well real ones (not bought) are anyway.
He is a wee bit too fast a flutter animation for my liking but at least he takes a rest when he's ready for collection.

priscillasp
10-29-13, 05:04 PM
I have been to the Ancient Vault three times & only have four glimmer rocks, much less the bat. Do I need to try another adventure? But it doesn't sound like that is working for others either. I'm going to be very unhappy if I have done everything the goal said to do & I don't get the bat.

froltojo
10-29-13, 05:08 PM
It took me four trips to the vault to get enough rocks. Now I've had two trips to vault for the bat but so far it's been an overgrown bench ( yay! ) and today the Alicorn horn. If it had been another bench I think I would have quit the game for good! So, I'm still playing and feeling a little bit more positive. Hang in there.

Just sent off for my 5th adventure (using barracks and castle). 5th time lucky for the elusive bat. Personally I think that the knights have got fat and lazy after all that pasta with the Glimmergate adventures, and they ride off till they are out of sight, pitch camp for the night, and return the next day claiming to have been all the way to the Ancient Vault. I suspect they are going no further than just over the hill. I may have to send Thurston along to lead the adventure next time. That's a scary thought!

Hi Aggwynn
Can I just check - is the glimmerbat the only Halloween goal?
I'd assumed the Griselda stuff like the castle was all Halloween related too as it appeared in the Market at the same time, but reading this I guess it's actually to do with the glimmergate stuff (I'm nowhere near that at level 22).
Just wondered as I now have my glimmerbat (yay!:D) and was expecting another Halloween goal to appear.
But if the glimmerbat is the last thing then I'll get back to the other stuff I was doing (I'd left it all while I prioritised the glimmerbat due to time restraints) - could you confirm either way please?
Thanks in advance :)

Hi Aggwynn

So frustrated with this. Knights came back empty handed again this morning. Are we sure the bat comes from the ancient vault adventure??? And not the dark cave adventure where you might just find a bat???
Ah well, my knights are gonna be grounded for quite sometime if this continues. And will be putting up a glimmer bat habitat really, really cheap if anyone's interested. Ah...but why would you need one if you don't have a bat either. It will be totally useless in a few days.

3rd: 1 SGR

4th: glimmerbat

By reading some of these posts it seems I was unusually lucky, I'd assumed it was automatic that you definitely got the right drops each time.

I've gone on the adventure three times and still haven't gotten a bat. Why would a timed quest have a random drop??

Has anyone had any luck getting the encyclopedias? I have two libraries and have one leveled out and I'm gathering the items to upgrade the second one to the highest level. I have make at least 6 visits to them and not one encyclopedia. Any suggestions? I am also still waiting on the poison to be dropped so that I can finish making the enchanted iron bars. No luck so far, but the mani tore is dropping lots of fur.

I collected from adventured 4 and 5 this AM, no bat. Adventures 6 and 7 in progress, I might be able to get an 8th in under the wire, depending on what time this quest expires...


This is horrible.

I was wrong, the time remaining is now showing as 23 hours. I'll only be able to get a 6th adventure in before the time expires. So, I've only got this one shot left to get the bat from an adventure. Grrr.

It took me weeks if not a month to get all the encyclopedias. I had 1 L5 and 2 L2 libraries. I didn't notice much difference in drop between the L2 and L5s. They just are really rare.

I just got mine yesterday. If you look closely inside the purple crystals, there's a little pair of glowing eyes. So fab!

Good luck to all. If you don't get the bat within the allotted time frame, TL needs to supply you with a free bat. I'm pretty sure that would come close to breach of contract if they didn't pull through in the end. Nobody wants that.

Woohoo!!! Got my bat just a minute ago...just in the nick of time. Only my second attempt, closed and restarted my game and couldn't believe my eyes!

Now on my first glimmergate adventure Have no idea why I'm so far behind when I play all the time.

I did not get the bat in time. Really disappointed because it's all I've been doing since it came out. I put so many much needed resources into a habitat that is useless :(. And as I've said before, buying a bat for 50 gems when all I get is fruit that I get from my trees anyway does not seem a good buy. But to have that empty habitat... I really thought TL would make sure everyone ended up with a bat on their last adventure. It took me 3 adventures to get the rocks and another 3 adventures for the elusive bat.

You would think you still could get the bat,,, after time is up ,,,as long as your castle went out before the quest is over

So... One quick question.... Griselda has closed the gate. I am building her house. But I only have 17 of 20 glimmer shards. I have collected from the gate three times now, since the gate was "closed", but have received NO shards. Only coins. I cannot go on an adventure through the glimmer gate anymore. Where do I get the last three glimmer shards?

FigmentValley
11-08-13, 08:10 PM
Oops. I am in error. It needs 25 shards - I have only 17. From whence do they come now?

I think your getting close to the showdown. A few posts up is a list by Dabag. I'm on part 2, step 13 allergic to light. Doing those Glimmergate adventures all over again. Hope I'm luckier with the blade of light then I was with the hilt if darkness a few goal lines back. Had to do nearly 10 adventures to finish that part if the goal.

I've been sending my knights to the glimmer gate every day in search if that blade of light. Up to now a great big nothing! This is not a game of wits anymore it's just getting lucky with a random drop. I'm getting close to giving up as it's no fun when some one else is dictating the game plan

Hi is there an error in castle story? I am very annoyed because I've spent a day making the emotion potion for Griselda and I bought 4 more theaters so that I would have 5 to visit to carry on with the quest and just when I finished tapping them plus killing a glimmer troll that got in the way, Castle story started buffering and then I had to kill the troll once again and tap the last theater again and then I gave the potion to Griselda (The grand Trolling quest) and after that Castle Story began to buffer again and when I tryed to give the potion to Griselda after that I couldn't because the potion has somehow disappeared and I can't make new ones in the potion shop anymore (and I shouldn't have to) so what has happened??!! This is soo annoying and I really hope you can fix this!! I have an iPhone 5s and I have tryed to restart my phone several times and Idon?t know what force close means (please explain it, I'm from Sweden). But I have double clicked the home button and when all of my open apps appears I slide them up to close them (as you do with iOS 7 oparative system). Then I open my Castle Story app but it still says that I don't have any ption to give Griselda. It says watch Geriselda drink the potion 0/1 and all of the three potions I made to make the emotion potion are gone and not in my inventry and I can't make new ones either.
Looking forward to your quick reply.

When you double tap the 'home' button and swipe the apps up out of sight, that is force closing. Might want to send an email to support about your problem.

I got the glimmer golem as soon as I completed the sword. I dud click on glimmer gate and then a few nearby items. Now they are coming frequently. Pretty much each time I click the glimmer gate although sometimes I have to do a few other things and then come back.
