I got the inn. It said to ask neighbors, but then checked it and went away instantly. I had everything else - used te things, built the inn, upgraded the inn. Now I can only gt ot chocolate from my cottages. I see no way to request it from neighbors. There is no prompt, no gift I can send, no ..... Anything? What gives?

At least the adventures are 8 hours each, so I can get 2 in per day.
Anyone know if the barracks is 8 hours also, or is it doubled to 16?
If it is 8 hours then I may be tempted to buy one, though at a cost of 360 gems I would have thought it would halve the adventure time rather than double it....

The limit isn't on the cottages but on the number of town buildings. I can't remember the exact but it might be 20 od like the royal buildings.

I just bought two more and have 4 total, we'll see how that goes. They're cheap, build them if you can, and just sell them off later to get them out of inventory. No need to upgrade them.

You would think it would be halved but I guess the barracks houses all those overweight knights who had the sweet feasts on the trek for the elusive burning ember and even alicorn parts.:D

Also besides putting out the cottages you will want to take out all your cows also... its a total of 30 milks per Holiday feast. Normal Cows only 15 min timer and adventure is 8 hours.... so don't need a lot but stocking up on milk seems to be wise.

Hi All,

1) Limited Time Quest for the Kingdom Inn (Starts 12/05/2013)
Complete this quest line to construct a cozy Kingdom Inn for your holiday guests!
(Chance drops of Earth Wisps and materials that will be useful for another December 2013 seasonal quest)


A little cynical maybe, but is it purely coincidence that we have new expansions only a week before an announcement that shows we will need plenty of earth wisps for December..........
How many people will need to spend gems to replenish stocks, also this quest line uses a lot of materials in these early stages, just after a sweepstake that caused people to hemorrhage their inventory.

Lol. Too low indeed. I'm sure it would proof low for the quest too just to make it challenging!!! So chop chop! Get all the cottages out & build new ones if you must, fellow kings & queens!

I too don't have them as an option to be gifted. That should help your chocolate craving once they are available for gifting!! :)

It's a 10 day challenge but the challenge will be getting all that hot chocolate since my first cottage collection netted but 1 hot chocolate. And the cottages take 4 hours so having at least 5 will help but hoping they drop more than 1 next time around.

It's a 10 day challenge but the challenge will be getting all that hot chocolate since my first cottage collection netted but 1 hot chocolate. And the cottages take 4 hours so having at least 5 will help but hoping they drop more than 1 next time around.

Well...I was able to gift hot chocolate from my other account so that's good. It's the very last item past the earth wisp not in front like felt & leaves were.

If the holiday feast is 8 hours and cottage collection time is every 4 hours and we 5 hot chocolates then how are we suppose to get this done in the 8 hours someone posted as the end of the goal? Am I missing something?

I, for one, have 4 cottages. They are super cheap to make. I did this because of one of the recent goals needing to collect from cottages X times. I almost wish I had a 5th, but given the quest times and 4 hrs per cottage, that is still 8 hot chocolates to my only needing 5 ;)

Wait, so do we have 10 Days to complete this quest line, or 10 hours? There's always that stupid "PROGRESS" ribbon that covers the Quest, so all I see is "10" with Progress underneath it.

Uhm, so 90 logs and tiles each are needed in total. At a rate of 4 each per adventure it will take 23 adventures. I'd be hardpushed to get 3 adventures each day but without you have no chance of doing this. Unless of course you get better drop rates.

You can finish the quest without the barracks however they did say that the inn drops items for another seasonal quest coming up.... so if that quest comes out next week... odds are you wont finish the quest until after the next quest starts... with the inn collection timer being at 1 day per collection your going to be 3-4 day behind on the next quest if they release it next week. You need the barracks to finish this quest before next patch day hits because you want to finish it 1 day before patch day so you have time to collect from your inn at least once.

Of course they could release the new quest in 2 weeks so everyone had there Inn for a week first so we have whatever the drops are for the next quest. It's really a guessing game... but I did they math you can finish the quest without the barracks... I myself have the barracks... every time I send them off I sent the alarms on my phone for the return time. Like tonight the barracks comes back at 3:20am... so odds are I will spends the 3 gems at midnight to collect early then send off the next set cause I am not waking up at 3am.

Also I noticed this adventure gives 1-2 gems ... for an 8 hour adventure it's pretty decent. Even after I finish I am going to keep doing it just to make up some of the gems I spent for speed ups.

It might won't know for sure until someone finishes the quest. If it used for other seasonal quest I bet it will stays until December is over. Hoping it stays so I can farm gems :)

I am sure someone finished this quest already with gems so we just have to wait for someone to let us know. I think I will finish Tuesday morning ... hoping for 20 items per days since I can do 3 castle / 1 barracks per day.

You do not need the barracks, you can use your King or Queens Keep for the adventures.

Looking at this thread, we are seeing drops of 3-7 logs, and 4-7 tiles. Smallest combined drop reported was 7 items, largest so far is 12 items. I just received 4 tiles, and 5 logs myself for the first quest.

Since we have seen 3 logs dropped, I'm going to assume we might also see 3 tiles dropped, so I'm figuring that the range on both will be 3-7, and the drop size would therefore range from 6-14. So a median drop on both would be 5, and total items dropped per quest is 10.

Using these totally unscientific numbers (based on small sample size) we are looking at 18 adventures to get enough of each to fully upgrade. Using the Castle alone, you would need 6 days of non-stop adventuring to get all of these items. Less if you have a Barracks.


Hopefully, this info will help encourage everyone that this is entirely doable in the time allotted.

It is just getting boring now. The fun of the game is rapidly fading with each time limited quest with virtually impossible goals, well, unless you want to spend vast amount of gems. So much for never needing the barracks to complete quests, just make it impossible without it. Not to mention the timer which they are still having problems with expiring too soon. Every timed quest has has it, you would think it would be sorted after the first time.

Gotta love the greedy consumerism of the holiday season lol.

12-06-13, 03:57 PM
Some quick math on the time needed to complete the building upgrades along the critical path.

The critical path is the Logs and Tile from the adventures. Assuming no friend gifts,stock piles, gem buys, energy boosts, or supplies from Stables.
100 of each at an early rough average of 5 tiles and logs per adventure equal 20 adventures to acquire.
20 adventures require 20 meals and 160 hours of time. That is about 7 days with out a Barracks.
20 meals require 100 Hot chocolates(HC), 600 milk, 40 sugar/200 sugar canes, 40 Flour/200 wheat, plus time.
Time per meal is 240 min per cottage/HC, 10 min per milk, 240 min per cane, and 120 min per wheat.

Assuming 7 cottages that is roughly 1 HC every 36 minutes or 5(enough for 1 meal) every 180 min(3hrs) at 5 energy
Assuming 2 cows that is roughly 1 milk per 5 minutes or 30 every 2.5 hrs at 30 energy
Assuming 14 plots of cane that is 1 cane per 17 minutes or 10 canes per 3 hours-ish at (assuming tablet) 8 energy
Assuming 7 plots of wheat that is 1 wheat per 17 minutes or 10 wheat per 3 hours-ish at (assuming tablet) 6 energy

2 x wheat to flour at 2 energy and 1 hr at kitchen 1
2 x cane to sugar at 2 energy and 0.5 hr at kitchen 2
1 x ginger at 1 energy and 0.5 hr at kitchen 2
1 x meal at 1 energy and 1 hr at kitchen 1 (yes i realize i should wait for ginger 2 to finish but this is easier.. call it left overs)

roughly kitchens full blast crank out a meal every 2-2.5 hours and cost 6 energy
roughly materials produce every 3 hours at 49 energy
after initial 3 hrs a meal can be made every 3 hours for 55 energy
55 energy(E) at 1E/3min = 165 min= 2.75 hours

so you can make all your meals for 20 runs in roughly 60-63 hours or 2.5 days
Assuming your double meal making and adventuring you have a rough dedicated time to complete of 160 hrs adventure + 3 hrs meal start + 3 hours farming start = 166 hours or about 7 days.

Sleep not included.

With Stables, wizard schools, and other adventure returns.... well just keep sending them on adventures that is what is important. :) the cooking is just hard in the beginning while you build up a cushion and don't have much energy to play with other things on the board.

I'm confused, people complain about timed goals but also about goals that require random drops because they take too long. I focus totally on timed goals when they come out and I have always completed them, even when they set me way back on "random drop" goals. Maybe you should concentrate on timed goals if you don't like random drop goals and random drop goals if you don't like timed goals? Timed goals are a bonus, I have never seen one that was required to advance overall in the game. Or am I forgetting something?

I'm gathering the goods to send knights on the first Polaris adventure and it says I have 0/5 hot chocolate when I have 7 in my storage and also 0/2 gingerbread but I have one. I know people were having trouble collecting hot chocolate and it not registering but has anyone had my issue ?

Mine only counted when I collected AFTER that goal pops up. I built 8 collages for this quest so it counted when I collect them after this goal popped up. Same goes for the gingerbread - it counted when I made new ones and collected them from kitchens.

Is there level 5 in the inn or is the highest level 4?

Someone posted the following material list for level 5 a while ago (I sure hope there isn't a level 6!)

Upgrade the Kingdom Inn to Lv. 5
40 Polarian Tile
40 Polarian Log
30 Jewels
15 Fur

Thank you to the user who posted this list :o

My first adventure netted 3 logs and 6 tiles... and I won't be able to collect again until 21.5 hours later when I come home since the knights would come back an hour after I leave for work. Oh the joy of working long hours. Hopefully I'd be able to finish this quest line before the deadline :( Off to sleep now. Good night all. :rolleyes:

Funny how many people are complaining. I recall many times reading "teamlava, please make shorter adventures"....granted. "Teamlava, random drops aren't fun"....fixed by making it fair all the way around. Yes this is possible to finish without the second barracks, just more challenging. Look at how much time they have been sticking into this game. How many developers are in this coming up with more ideas for this storyline every week. Of course they want it to be tempting to spend gems. It's how this game ultimately thrives. You all need a reality check, I'm not at the bank every day asking for free handouts if money. And this, my friends, is my venting.

For those who already finished the questline:

Is lvl 5 the max you can upgrade to?
Do new recipes go off the kitchen, and do cottages drop chocolate something after you finished questline?

Thanks in advance

This quest felt undoable, especially learning that I needed to find so many logs and tiles to complete it but I think it's going to be okay on my main account. Actually that's quite all right. A little bit of tension in the game makes it more fun while I wait and wait and wait for Mithril to drop.... ;)

I dont know how the game is coded, but as long the "adventure" doesnt go away, you will have all the time in the world to finish the quest even though there is a timer, unless you want the coins and exp reward which I doubt its among anyone's interests

Same problem here. Hot Chocolates from neighbours aren't being accounted for. Therefore it's taking forever waiting on my cottage to drop it.
I've closed the game etc but to no avail.

I'm sorry to say I no longer find these timed quests a pleasure,but a chore to be endured.

I am in a time zone that the quest began at 3.00am my time,so by the time I logged on I was already 6/7 hours behind.

Perhaps it may be worth considering that there are players world wide playing & the TL "clock" puts them at a distinct disadvantage.

The first one in the quest should complete when your knights return from the adventure.

Ok but that did not happen either. And there was a "send" button which meant the goal should have registered when I sent them. It was only until I sent them the second time that it registered. Well at least I got some materials from that first adventure even though it didn't register :)

After 3 adventures, I only have 12 tiles & 14 logs. At this rate I need 5 adventures to make 20 of each, if I'm lucky. that's 40 hours. Needing a total of 90 to upgrade all the way is gonna be near impossible to finish since my timer now says 8 days.
40 hours to get 20 of each means I need 180 hours to get all 90 if I'm lucky enough to at least get the amount I've been getting. 180 divided by 24 = 7.5 days . Yep,this will be nip & tuck considering the timer is always wrong and there is gonna be times when I can't collect exactly at 8 hrs. Like this evening being the company Christmas party.

The adventures produce random number of drops sometime 5 of one thing the next time 3. The first adventure upgrade took me 3 adventures to collect with a couple left over. This time the knights brought back 1 gem and 1 cocoa along with tiles and logs. So far it has been my experience that just when you think you won't make it the knights come through. Now I do play consistently; but I am not a big gem buyer.

Totally agree with this. Almost all cookies need eggs but few call for milk. I'm seriously considering buying more cows at this point.

Why does it take TWICE as long (16 HOURS), for the Polaris journey, if done from the Barracks than if you start the journey from the Castle? This should not be. Players put just as much effort into making the provisions for the Barracks journey as the Castle journey. And it is not our fault that we cannot have 2 Castles! Could this TIME/JOURNEY DISCREPANCY be fixed/changed quickly?

The following post NEEDS to be CORRECTED as soon as possible. I freaked out the first time I read it, and it took me a few minutes to figure out what you were talking about:
Polaris North
TO POLARIS NORTH:
*- To Polaris North (adventure from keep... 8 hours takes new item from kitchen and cottage)
*- Holiday Feast + 5000 gold + 8 hours time

Where it states that we need 5000 GOLD! There is quite a difference in Gold and Coins. Gold could mean Nuggets, Eggs, or Apples! The post should state specifically 5000 COINS.

preinsko

The castle is the main source for adventures. The barricks is a purchased extra it would not make any sense to give advantage over the default. It would be like buying an election.

12-07-13, 07:30 PM
Looking at this thread, we are seeing drops of 3-7 logs, and 4-7 tiles. Smallest combined drop reported was 7 items, largest so far is 12 items. I just received 4 tiles, and 5 logs myself for the first quest.

Since we have seen 3 logs dropped, I'm going to assume we might also see 3 tiles dropped, so I'm figuring that the range on both will be 3-7, and the drop size would therefore range from 6-14. So a median drop on both would be 5, and total items dropped per quest is 10.

Using these totally unscientific numbers (based on small sample size) we are looking at 18 adventures to get enough of each to fully upgrade. Using the Castle alone, you would need 6 days of non-stop adventuring to get all of these items. Less if you have a Barracks.


Hopefully, this info will help encourage everyone that this is entirely doable in the time allotted.

6 quests down, 29 logs, 30 tiles. Average of 5 each per quest still holding. Two adventures going right now, 7 Holiday Feasts in inventory. Looks like I should only need to craft 3 more to finish the 18 quests calculated, but more likely I will need 19 to keep from coming up short.

Feeling good about this one.

Castloninian
12-07-13, 10:46 PM
I've done 5 adventures and now have 28 of each. One due to come back any minute and 8 feasts waiting. My drop rate has considerably picked up from the 5/3 I started with so managed to do the first upgrade in 4 adventures. Maybe I can afford a bit more sleep and only do 2 adventures a day... Do feel sorry for the rest of my kingdom, I barely have enough energy to collect from anything not related to Polaris.

CLOVERKAITO
12-07-13, 11:57 PM
One of my earlier drop today was 18 energies (no gems) + ? logs/tiles/silver ore/earth wisps. The extra energy boost was better than 1 gem drop at this stage of the game imo. Helps with collecting milk! I think I can stop making these holiday feasts when I have 20 of them stocked up and focus on going on adventures / getting other items that I'm currently neglecting... (Now I have 4 feasts in the queue, sent the knights 3 times so far, with 16 tiles and 11 logs... my drop rate for the logs and tiles are quite low as well @_@

Not gonna buy more cows since I don't want to waste energy raising them. Will just reserve my energy for collecting from cows since they can be collected every 10 minutes anyway.

I am mid second adventure... Not enough gems for barracks. Doubt i will finish on time. But having fun. I have no issues with TL. They give us this game for free. It is their right to try to earn here and there and my choice if i want to spend or not. I agree with some of the things written here, like time zone issues and shorter times than stated, and yet, this is a game and a free one at that.
So thank you TL. If I dont manage to finish on time, I assume there will be otherr ways of getting the drops needed for future quests, even if it will take me longer. And still, I am hopeful. For now I will not be speeding things up using gems. Towards the end I will see how far I am and decide nearer the time.

And here I was impressed when my Polaris quest brought me back another holiday feast & extra energy.... Happy to hear of all the possibilities, even if I do have more eggs than I know what to do with!!! ;-)

Since the kingdom inn will drop earth wisps when completed it's probably a good idea to start stockpiling some for the next timed quest. I'm sure a lot of people are quite low from replenishing their wisp lantern supply from the recent expansions.

12-08-13, 04:00 PM
Just an observation about the time and resources it takes to complete this goal. I am averaging 4.5 tiles/logs per adventure. I need a total of 100 (20 for 1st, 30 for 2nd, 40 for 3rd upgrade) of each of those to complete the goal. I will need to complete 23 adventures to get all the tiles/logs I need for all the upgrades. Each adventure requires a total of 30 milk (20 to make 2 gingerbread, 10 for the feast), thus requring almost 700 (23 adventuresX30 milk) milk before this is done. And then there is that hot chocolate those knights need for this sugar binge adventure (5 per adventure), meaning I need over 200 hot chocolate. Is there no end to the amount of sweets those knights will consume at Christmas?? lol

This isn’t a problem for me. I am a long time player able to have 20 cows and 10 cottages to complete this adventure. I have a great stock pile of wood, dye, jewels, silver, fur etc. I love this particular adventure and am so grateful for it. I appreciate that TL keeps us excited with new things to do and creates a really beautiful game. I play other TL games and have noticed that this game seems to have fewer complaints on the forum than other games. I really appreciate that TL listens to our concerns on this forum and makes changes to improve the game (adding the red trillium so players can get red petals).

I am concerned about lower level players trying to complete this time limited goal. I recently started a kingdom on a new device. I know this game (and the strategies that work to complete necessary tasks) and I can get overwhelmed with the many many goals that new players are confronted with. I just reached level 15 and was given a “Holiday Invitation”. I know I cannot get 700 milk and 200 hot chocolate in my tiny lithe kingdom in a short time so I did not even start. I am hoping that not too many folks get frustrated with this one. Maybe TL can increase the number of logs/tiles received per adventure so smaller/newer kingdoms have a chance to complete this wonderful goal. An increase yield of logs/tiles won’t make any difference to a high level player to be able to complete this goal and have a Kingdom Inn. It will make all the difference in the world to a small, lower level kingdom.

I had the same problem. Mine didnt even show that you could update so I thought I had to wait on the time to run out, after 2 times and still nothing I had to force close and the when I reopened it it showed that I could upgrade. Set me behind by two days on the quest, but fortunately the adventure quest is only 8 hours. Takes a lot of them so I hope I have enough time to complete. I'm currently on upgrade 4.

I was worried about this quest because i started a couple of days after everyone.
I dont know how, but somehow i managed to send my knights off to four adventures yesterday, plus one the day before. I've upgraded to level three and have one tile and one log for level four. I have five feasts ready and only collect from my cows, wheat, sugar and kitchen. Oh, and monsters of couse. The rest of my kingdom is in a lull.
I'm still not 100% sure about this quest, but reading the math here, it should require about 20 adventures. If i contine at 4 a day (doubtful) thats 3 more days, then i have pleanty of time to spare. Realistically, if i do 3 adventures a day, i will be cutting it close but still doable.
2 a day will mean i will have to speed up the last of the adventures.... I'm still missing 8 gems for the barracks, so i hope to keep up with this pace.
But in all fairness, TL gave enough time for this one imho.
As for lower level players..... I totally agree with what was written here. I remember struggling for wood and stone.
Good luck to all.

After ensuring i can send out on adventures 3 times a day, I've managed to just upgrade to level 4. Just need 35 more logs and 38 tiles until it's finished.

Jay you are right. 4 isnt possible time wise. What was i thinking? Anyway. I need 69 more of each till the end. Knights should be back in an hour....

I couldn't do 4 in a day, not unless I wanted to use gems to speed it up. I just timed it right so that I could send first thing in the morning and collect during the afternoon, send another and collect last thing at night and send them off ready for the next morning collection. It is doable, but you just have to leave the rest of your kingdom alone and only do the feasts and quests. Really getting bored of the time limited quests, not only are they frustrating, but any future new players miss out completely, just like the valentines stuff.

Since we are seeing drops of burning ember and Alicorn parts, I'm probably going to keep doing these quests until they run out, 3 chances per day beats 1 chance per day...

My knights just returned from Polaris and brought back 2! Tiles and 3! Logs. Earlier I had an average drop of 4, but 2 is way too low! With such bad luck it will be extremely difficult for me to finish in time :'(

Mine have just returned with very little, I can't see how I will manage to upgrade to level 4 let alone level 5 😰

I hope I can get a Burning Ember, too.

I have a lonely Dragon Egg itching to be hatched! I imagine that it's crying inside its shell, pining to be free.

I cheer my knights' return daily from their Quests through Barracks and Castle, and although they have brought riches from Polaris, they have not yet found the one item that will free my imprisoned scaly friend.

Just think about the (dragon) children! <sniffle>


(I am having sooooo much fun with this quest! Thank You TeamLava!)

people have been getting alicorn parts?! I've needed one of them (can't remember which now) for months! It's exciting to think we can have a chance at even getting that! It's going to be a great Christmas hehe.

I'm a little skeptical about the burning ember report. I think only one person has reported it and they may have been mistaken (knights were actually returning from the desert sands adventure). Especially since it makes no sense for the burning ember to come from the cold north....... presumably Polaris is in the exact opposite direction from the desert.

The Alicorn parts make a lot of sense though, since those can drop from any adventure. Suddenly our chances are increased threefold! I'm hopeful again for my second alicorn :)

Yeah I'm still excited but i woke up this morning at 4:30 and couldn't go back to sleep so i sent my knights on the next polaris quest which in a couple of hours would have returned and then around 9:30 i went back and it never sent them. : ( I'm bummed i could have used that extra time. Nothing to be done now. Hoping for more good drops from this quest though.
