Hi All,

The Holidays are nearing! Here is this week's update.


1) Reindeer Stable Limited Time Quest (Starts 12/19/2013 for players level 22+)
Complete this quest line to have your very own Reindeer pet!

Reindeers are considered very special animals in Polaris. Wouldn't it be festive to have a Reindeer in the Kingdom as well?
Write letters to the Stable Master to convince him that you'll shower your Reindeer with love and affection! If you persuade him enough, he'll send you things you'll need to care for a reindeer!
(At Level 5, chance drops of Sugar, Ice Cream, Fur, and Faerie Jars)


2) Your Kingdom is bustling now that you have a fully built Kingdom Inn! Visit the Inn when you can to chat with the Polarians, they may support your cause for a pet Reindeer!
(Kingdom Inn Level 5 may drop items that aid in constructing the Reindeer Stable)


3) The glow-y visitors will make a short appearance in this week's seasonal quest.

Edit (KP)
Paying gems to buy the reindeer stable, harvest pergola or kingdom inn gives you the fully upgraded one. Paying gems to buy the glimmerbat habitat gives you the un upgraded habitat but you do get the quests to get the parts.


Yup! If you buy it now with Gems, it will come fully built.

The Reindeer Stable was available to purchase with Coins and the items required to build it were free for a limited time through Goals. Now that Goals have expired, you cannot obtain these items for free anymore. Players who purchase this building after the Goals have expired will not have the option to purchase the building with Coins and will need to use Gems. However, the building will be fully built when they buy it.


You can acquire the Polarian Planks, Forever Snow, and the Reindeer at the Royal Exchange =)



I did find out that the Magic Fruit can also be picked up from any of the three Christmas trees.
Forever snow
10 living wood
30 glimmer dust
40 mushrooms

And it takes 12 hours

Planks

1 Lumin Essence
2 Enchanter's Essence
6 Troll Essence

Upgrade #2:
+ 3 Architect's Paste
+ 4 Encahnted Block
+ 60 Water
+ 10 Polarian Planks

Planks can be traded with the exchange: 1 Lumin Essence, 2 Enchanter's Essence, 6 Troll Essence, 12 hours (for the ingredients, please check)

This quest line will be expensive!!!!! High level kingdoms stuff.

How many did the inn drop? Also, if someone does the exchange, please let us know how many it drops. The level of materials required here is high and expensive. This seems like a quest for high level players, with stocks.

So, yet another limited time quest. I wonder how many players are going to be left with another useless unfinished building. Had to delete several neighbours this week after they stopped playing sue to virtually impossible quests recently. Not to mention that Christmas week is a busy week for most people, so a lot less chance to access the game.

I wonder how many will drop for each trade? Hoping more than 1! I'm going to need to fight some more trolls, I haven't been triggering them much lately.

6 hours left till my Kingdom Inn is available, will see how many planks drop from that.

Level 2 stable

3 Architect's Paste
60 water
4 Enchanted Block
10 Polarian Planks

Since Level 2 needed Enchanted Blocks but no beams, I'm going to assume that Level 3 will need 4 Enchanted Beams but no blocks. Just a guess, but crafting extra anyway. Not that I need those. LOL

6 troll essence !!!!!!!!!
So we spend lots of energy trying to entice a troll, then fight it and then cross our fingers that it drops a troll essence.
It can easily take 12 trolls to get 6 essence, I am sure that the drop rate hasn't been tweaked to lower the rate, as it is purely coincidence that whatever we need for previous tasks seemed to have a lower drop rate than before we needed them.

Not to mention that Christmas week is a busy week for most people, so a lot less chance to access the game.

Also to build the first step requires 99 wheat, a 2 hour grow time with a max of 51 plots ( I think), 8 pm UK time for the release of this update, so may not get in a harvest tonight, definitely won't get in some planting and harvesting before work tomorrow, so already a day behind, and the 8 day time span will magically become 7 and a bit days.

Luckily I was maxed out on troll essence and had plenty of the other materials, only need the planks. This quest, like others are aimed more towards high level players who will have accumulated plenty of materials. They are also trying to force players hands into purchasing and using vast amounts of gems. If future quests are going to follow suit, I will just quit the game like several of my neighbours have done recently as they have been left with too many useless unfinished buildings because of these tedious quests.

i want to do that, but am missing the screen to upgrade, with the gather meterials button..
all i see when i press the arrow that appeares is the time left before next collect!
so how am i supposed to move on now ?

please help me out

Try the force close step, then reopen. Assuming of course that after upgrading you tapped away from the stables before you tapped it again.

I just sped up my exchange to see how many planks I'd get per exchange. I got 3 planks in one exchange. If that rate stays consistent it'll be a while to get the planks.

How much do the planks cost to buy in the stables? sometimes that is more cost effective than speeding up an exchange?

Without you speeding it up then we wouldn't have a fair comparison. Until you sped it up we didn't know how many planks would come, it could have been 1 or 10, so now we have an idea we are all better informed.
Thank you for your gem sacrifice :)

yes i did, i play these kind of games for some time now, i was so annoyed that i even restarted my ipad several times, and after four of five attempts i can upgrade if i want to.. but the planks will be a hugh problem, so maybe i let it pass by.
leveling up to 5 from the inn doesnt give so much special stuff as we expected, so i assume the stables also won't

1) kindom is always full and with lots of "full" messages on their walls.
2) crops don't ever appear to change (ie always full grown and are never just growing)
3) new event items don't appear like the xmas trees
4) partially built event items and then any of the above signs (like the glimmerbat habitat, pergola, inn)

Also the most definite way to tell: 5) they were a regular trading partner and have stopped returning gifts.

That, combined with this quest taking 2 days to complete level 2 (3 planks per exchange) have just convinced me not to even start this.

I don't have a holiday next week, our holidays start 1st of January, so I'll be able to play as always. But I am still baffled how to complete these requirements... It's just crazy and I am "only" on level 25. So anyone lower should not even start.
Probably TL was dissapointed that too many people were able to finish previous quests without using tons of gems and decided to go for sure this time...

I fear you may be right! I am low on troll essence since I'd been chasing the burning ember in the desert and needed troll essence to make the suited armour.....so I've now just been chopping away at rocks like crazy to draw a troll, which usually brings them out (to my annoyance!), and it didn't. I also had a bunch of glimmerbulbs in my garden that I had to harvest to make room for planing the wheat needed, and that too didn't bring a troll when it usually does. On top of that of course, is your point that even if you get a troll doesn't mean it'll drop essence!

I've been seeing this for a little over a month now. I always get a slight amoun of excitement then remember its like 3am and no additions are being made at THAT time.

Has anyone else noticed the level icon appears to have a "50" in it before reverting to your current level upon loading the game? I don't remember whether it used to be higher but perhaps the new level maximum will be 50 soonish?

Yes I noticed that some time ago... Some day we get it

Ok let's have a little sanity, it's only been two hours and people are complaining, talking about not even trying and giving up. You don't know what will happen for you, we can only try our hardest and try to keep a positive outlook. Ok now you can call me Pollyanna vol not tigarlilyvol!

I am merely trying to figure out whether I'll have enough time to do this quest justice before just dumping materials into it. I've got reasonable stock levels so it's mostly the new stuff which will be hard to get. But I am just not sure I want a timed quest hanging over my head when I really want to focus on Christmas and family.

If you did not trap a monster in your kingdom you would not have an issue with troll essence. I cannot for the life on me figure out why anyone would not want to kill monsters. If for no other reason then to have an additional troll hunter trade every day or so at the exchange. That way you get more trade tickets for those new expansions that folks complain about. Instead everyone is posting how they do not have any troll essence, or teeth, or bones for the previous quests in previous threads. You put yourselves in that situation but not killing a monster for months and months and then you blame Team Lava for requiring a resource that you no longer collect by choice. You would have plenty of those resources if you kill them daily.

Fully quit the game, or restart your device. Visit a neighbor, then come back and see if it is at the Exchange. If it is missing from the Exchange, it likely won't drop from the Inn either, the game doesn't realize that you are at that stage so this isn't getting triggered.

I regret making lots of Light Armour now. I only had 10 troll essense in my top kingdom, but have 50 armour spare. I wish i could trade them back for troll essense now. As it is now i dont think there is any way of me finishing this quest as i can only do 1 trade, then it'll take me about 8 days just to upgrade to level 2. In my other two kingdoms, both at level 30, they have little to no troll essense either and i wont be bothering to start this quest as the builders paste is too prescious to waste.

Will the stables be able to be purchased for gems like the pegola was after this quest is finished?

goatherding
12-19-13, 03:25 PM

Simply not true. I never ever ever ever EVER trap monsters, you're over generalizing. I used up my troll essence on armour for the desert sand adventure, as did some others who have posted.

No! I think you should give up your wheats first and then stock up on feasts. The trade at Royal Exchange doesn't unlock until AFTER you upgrade to level 2, and apparently each trade takes 12 hours. Wheats only take 2 hours to cook and you only need 5 per flour. You can go back to cooking feasts after upgrading to level 2 reindeer stable, or else you might not finish this quest line in 7 days.

How do you usually trigger trolls? I don't keep monsters in my kingdom unless I run out of energy to kill them but trolls are still very rare in my kingdom. I have a constant invasion of fangbeasts though. They were rare even when I collected from mushroom circles with all spare energy.

They don't leave. I wish I could tell you. I never knew I could " trap " a monster until recently. I collect from my buildings troll. I collect any crops besides the ones that make a skunk troll. I get a dozen a day and am constantly maxed out or close to it with everything they give. I didn't know my troll invasion was unusual. But this is exactly why we so desperately need a market place I'm always running low on skunk tails. I'd give five bottles for one tail

If I had to take a guess I would say its because lower levels have a ton of goals to work on and higher goals have little to none for months. So some of these latest updates are to keep those of us who are maxed out on everything something to do that requires much effort. For example for the last 7 expansion update I got done in less than two days. So how does team lava keep a player like me involved in this game and not quiting out of boredom? I'm not saying this is fair or not, just putting out a thought. Someone mentioned that most other games require certain levels and accomplishments before being able to unlock certain goals. They said this is common in many games. Maybe this is TL's way of doing that. Who knows.

The one pattern I can give is I have four purple lateen spires and one pink one. Early in the game I built them quick way for royal points ya know. Anyhow I don't think I've ever collected from them without a troll. I dunno if it's me or true to the game

There are several ways but the best way for me is to get several towers, I never have less than 6, three on each side of my main castle. Then collect from them ALL at once. This 99% of the time will trigger at least one (and usually multiples) of trolls.

mrosmeows
12-19-13, 05:37 PM
Yah I do too but I keep my good at 99 when I use it I automatically regrow it. They seem to come less if I'm planting four or five as compared to the entire stock of wheat I'm trying to regroup so I can cook during this impossible mission while screwed on energy. I've gotten atleast three today but normally not

Yeah I suppose you're right. I just wish they could do something for everyone, the newcomers who love the game and the loyal old players. So I suppose moral of the story is its impossible to make everyone happy.

But then, why not just make more levels, more quests to go along with those levels, so the old loyal players can level up and everyone who plays will eventually get there? And make the seasonal, limited time quest content available to everyone? That just seems to make more sense to me, but maybe time is against them, or what not...

Correct me if I am wrong on this. You can collect 3 Forever Snows every 12 hours from the exchange. That equals 6 snows per day. You need 50 snows to complete the level. At 6 per day, that would take 8 and 1/2 days just for the snows. Isn't this whole Reindeer Stable limited to 8 days? I don't understand how it is possible to complete it for anyone.

Im honestly not sure because mines already level 5 i managed to complete it in time without spending gems but I can imagine it would be a great amount. and to be very honest im not 100 percent sure that it doesnt come level 5 already i am making this assumption based on the fact that no building ive ever purchased came upgraded already but considering this one is from a timed event, youd have to ask someone who purchased it after the quest ended.

Ok, I'm confused. What about all the time needed for collecting the planks before we even get to the forever snow? Can Someone with better math skills than I (and not caring for a sick child at the moment) figure out the approximate time needed for these two with the info posted?

Quick question, when you buy the Harvest Pagoda or the Kingdom Inn with gems, what level does it start off, 5? I was pondering this since if it started off at 1 you wouldn't be able to upgrade it since the items are no longer available. Thank you!

Actually its at maxed level, I know because I have two buildings of each, and 2 is the limit before you ask.

Correct me if I am wrong on this. You can collect 3 Forever Snows every 12 hours from the exchange. That equals 6 snows per day. You need 50 snows to complete the level. At 6 per day, that would take 8 and 1/2 days just for the snows. Isn't this whole Reindeer Stable limited to 8 days? I don't understand how it is possible to complete it for anyone.

Good point! Can anyone shed any more light on these Forever Snows? I agree that this would appear to make the quest impossible; but surely that's not the case?? I am pretty nervous about this one, and am tossing up just skipping it so I don't feel the need to have the iPad handy while I am enjoying Christmas :). It's all about priorities....

Great! Just used my last magic fruit for a trade this morning. I wonder how much to buy?

Castloninian
12-19-13, 07:50 PM
OK that's it, definitely know I shouldn't do this one. Thanks Mikado86 for showing all the requirements. It's the magic fruit that I know I won't have as I am always doing magic fruit trade (serves me right for not keeping a stock ;)). I can get 5 or so during this time but would expect to need to do that trade more than once?

My only issue now is that I did buy the building, but haven't built it yet and can't store or sell it. So am I going to have to waste precious materials (builders paste, ouch!!) to get rid of a building site? If so, perhaps every kingdom needs a building site ;).

Good luck to everyone who is doing this quest.

Somehow I knew it was a good idea to stop doing magical fruit trades a month or so ago when the started these timed quests. Now you can decide if you even want to bother with the quest line because you will need to spend gems for the level 4 upgrade on a massive scale to get sufficient polarian lichen.

And if that doesn't work, I also have 3500 gems. :)

Oh wishful thinking. You know, I would have enjoyed this quest had it not been timed. For me, even if it wasn't a holiday period with limited playing, I just don't have the stocks to do this quest. And I've been level 30 for quite some time now. I would have enjoyed making things and building things up and doing all the trades. Never mind.

Thanks the heads up, I won't waste any more resources and put the whole thing into storage. I only have 2 magic fruits after spending them all on trade tickets for the expansions.
Quest is impossible in that case.

Shame on you TL, why would you make a quest that can only be finished if you stockpiled everything. Wow, I was quite happy when we only had an update every 3 months, those were worth it. These weekly ones have just been a disappointment. I'm seriously thinking whether I'll keep playing.

Thanks mikado. I am currently working the griselda/glimmergate quest line as well as going after the materials for the dragon egg. I am low on mermaid scales, and have prepared lots of armour for adventures so no troll essence. I have the magic fruit but this list puts things in a different light.
I believe the quest line is doable if you log in every hour to use up your 20 energy plus what you get from wizard schools etc. having said that, the materials listed here are too expensive for the turn around at level 5.
I have already started the buolding so thankfully I think I can store it.
I actually like the timed quests as they give me an excuse to log in more often. But in the next couple of days I wont have the time needed.
Don't yell at TL for giving us a challange. Not every goal/quest has to be for everyone. They are not forcing anyone to buy the gems or the items for sale.
Good luck to those who go for it. If you can gift anything, all my neighbours let me know and I will gift you what you need.

Gasp! The most I ever got to was 360, and then I spent them on the barracks. Curious as to what your kingdom looks like when you have access to so many gems.

Come over for a visit! My kingdom is actually very simple. I'm not into conspicuous consumption and I like clean, spare spaces. I also like having a goodly stock of gems. I use them to speed up my wizard schools when they get to 2 or 3 gems. I don't go out to dinner, buy movies or music, or other games for that matter, so I can justify spending 35 bucks on gems every three months or so. And because I do buy gems (gasp! So UN-anti TL of me!) I get lots of gem sales. I usually get 2 per week, at least. :)

You know, I think this quest is the straw that breaks the camel's back. The timed quests have been relatively easy up until now but between the gem traps, the so-so Christmas trees, the lack of communication over the caravan winners and now the stables, I've about had it. I know I don't have to participate in these quests, but my competitive nature does me a real disservice here. I'm really at a loss for words as to why TeamLava has been behaving so boorishly lately (and mind you, I've been a big defender of their actions) but I feel it's time for me to focus my energy elsewhere as this is no longer fun. It's obviously becoming more about the gems for TL and that's a very unfortunate attitude to have.

looking at the first few posts of this thread, i thought we were getting lucky with only 2 upgrades to get the final product. figures it was too good to be true. i was worrying about 8 days being enough time to even complete the lvl 2 and 3 upgrades (especially since this is the holiday season) but seeing the requirements for lvl 4 and 5..

these requirements are questionable given the return (faerie jars and ice cream, on a good day?), but it's the time restraint which i find really absurd. i do appreciate all the effort by the dev team to provide us with more content, and i think this is a wonderful addition to any castle story kingdom. however, even as a fairly veteran lvl 30 player who has most materials stockpiled, i can't see this building being completed without substantial use of gems (i'm estimating 200+). thanks TL, but no thanks.

Only two more days? Lol!

This would be a really good high level quest and one I would really enjoy working at, when done over a couple of weeks! The sheer quantity of high level crafting required for this, and then the trades on top.

Give me a quest with a doable timeline, that if Im busy one day I can use gems for a small part. But this, in eight days... Over Christmas. O.o

Even if this was an ongoing quest it would take a couple of weeks of hard slog to get it.
60 carrots and 60 cabbage from a maximum of 51 plots, along with 10 lichen which are from the exchange.
wouldn't be so bad if we weren't already filling our plots up with other crops for the other stages or to attract monsters.

Please pretty please with sugar on top TL please change this quest to an untimed quest. The requirements are crazy and so many players won't be able to finish it! Then all your artistic work with the cute reindeer and stable will not be so proudly shown over a bunch of kingdoms. I am a level 24, play at least 10 times a day and this would take me at least two weeks to finish!

Oh gosh I hope the fairy quest isn't as absurd as this one is... because they keep getting more and more impossible.

Thank you all for these informations. I will give up now. I lack so many materials for the higher upgrades ( f.e. troll essence, apples ecc). Problem is I have at least to build it to Level 1 to be able to put it into storage. So goodbye to 99 wheat, 8 royals, 2 builder's. But look at the sunny side: I have so many rat tails now from harvesting all that wheat.
Have a good week end all the same and wonderful holidays.

WOW! It is so evidently clear this quest was made to be skipped by gems or have gems purchased because hello!! Carrots take a day to harvest alone! So how on Gods green earth are we suppose to get 60 x however many exchanges it takes to get those materials in only 8 days. Seriously just another fresh hell quest. So dissapointed in you TL.

faeriedust
12-19-13, 10:36 PM
Hmm I have 99 carrots and 99 glimmerbulb and 99 cabbages... but does anyone even save up magic fruit? I always use it up for fruit trade to get trade tickets and energy.
I don't see what the point of this quest is, it seems more suited to a mini sweepstakes caravan. Even the baron doesn't require one to spend 100s of gems to get his reward. And he's THE baron.
Though TL did give us a sneak peek of how this Christmas would go with the holiday trees.
The player, I forgot who, who said that she stockpiles 30 of each feast was right, those kinds of stockpiles are what you need for this quest.
I think that I must admit defeat. This quest is for major high level players.

Magic fruit are dropped by the magic garden every 22 hours(?) and its usually 1 fruit but sometimes you get 2. So in a sense it will be impossible to acquire the 15 fruit needed for the quest in 7 days unless you stockpiled. Good luck if you are going for the stables.

Why on earth we got something like 3 weeks for the Christmas trees (I wish that goal would disappear) and 8 days for this is mind-boggling. If you're desperate to have the reindeer you may be better off waiting until you can buy the fully upgraded version with gems in the market. Would probably cost less than what you would be throwing in speeding up and buying items.

Glad to hear about the drop rate. I have all the rest of the stuff (or can get without too much trouble), so it's really just a matter of the drop rate from the exchange. Not happy that we don't get tickets though. What gives? We're using up resources and time! Why no tickets???

I got 4 planks from the Exchange (and no trade ticket either). So with the single plank I got from my Inn, I now have a total of 5 planks after 12 hours (after I started playing this quest line). Hopefully my next Inn and Exchange collections will net me 5 more, so that I can make the Level 2 upgrade by 12pm Pacific, Friday.

I'm going to try and see how far I can get, but I know for sure I'm not going to finish this within the time limit.

While the 50 Snow thingies concern me a little, it's the Magic Fruit that is going to kick me down flat.

So thanks for all the feedback I'm not even starting the quest now. Sadly I already bought the stable and I really don't have any space in my kingdom.
I could never finish this quest I'm only level 23 don't have the magic garden and no farie. Can anyone tell me how I get faries for the next quest? I want to free one, too.
The funny thing is I have no problem making the first two updates because I have 20 plakes over from last week but theres no chance in finishing the others.
I'm really sad that I can't finish this quest because I love reindeer.
You guys think I can buy it afterwards? I would really love to have this animal :)

li1168

The first 2 level is not hard, after I read all the feedback and I need to build it in level 5 . It scared me and I quit, spend too many materials and only get ice cream or some food. Too expensive. I want the reindeer too. I don't want to continue the quest but can't finish it, only waste all materials.

For the first time since playing this game my heart is sinking at what is needed to complete this quest. Do TeamLava realise that it is Christmas? And that some of us have families doing Christmas stuff so we can't spend every hour of every day stocking up on hard-to-get materials?

I had enough troll essence for one exchange (yes, I too have been making armour or doing exchanges to get trade tickets). I attracted 3 trolls to my kingdom in this morning and not one of them dropped troll essence.

Feeling sad now :(

I think using gems as alternate materials for quests is legitimate. we can get gems doing adventures, quests, installing apps.. gems are less rare then some materials. If you are short on something it might be "chipper" to use gems and skip it...

newzealander
12-20-13, 01:24 AM
OK, having read the forum and done the calculations, and allowing for some family time over Christmas, I have decided I'm out. This is the first time I've done this, and I'm a little disappointed, but this just doesn't calculate as possible. It's a real shame TL have done something so tightly time framed at this time of year.
My advice to those tempted to spend gems to finish this is to take those same $$ and put them in your local Red Cross or City Mission collection. They need it at this time of year.

Throwing in the towel on this one feels extremely liberating!! Try it!

While the 50 Snow thingies concern me a little, it's the Magic Fruit that is going to kick me down flat.

Maybe stupid question. You all mean the Kingdom Inn don't you? There is no other inn?

Yes. I was referring to the Kingdom Inn. I got it to Level 5. (It wasn't a stupid question at all.)

Just an fyi, but I type using the on-screen keyboard on my iPad, so I try to limit the total number of words I have to use.

Throwing in the towel on this one feels extremely liberating!! Try it!

It really does!! As soon as I put that thing in storage. :) there's no way I can do it with only 2 magic fruit. Plus a transatlantic flight and seeing family, I can't be glued to this game. Reindeer is cute, but it'll look stupid in summer, so I'm ok to just skip it altogether.
Not impressed with TL and their typical MO of not addressing any concern. Merry Xmas to you too TL

I think the Inn will drop planks so maybe it's not a full 5 days.. .maybe only 3?

It actually DOES, it drops whatever you need, being planks, snow and lichen, an incentive to buy the second one

First royal exchange trade gave me 5 planks and the Kingdom Inn dropped 1, hopefully my second trade will drop the other 4 needed.

Probably a dumbquestion, but what is magic fruit?

Magic fruit comes from the Magic Garden. You can collect from the Magic Garden once every 22 hours. You have to "unlock" the Magic Garden first, though. It's the tree with the rainbow over it.

This should explain more http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?41844-Castle-story-Goals/page4

put the stable in my inventory, cause the materials to build i can craft 2 amphitheater or other building that give me more than icecream or sweet-food, not sweetfeasts or other feasts.
and im getting boring of this timed-adventurer-overkill... ( i love this game, but im playing not since two years, i have NOT: 5 alicorns, 5 dragons, all buildings at level, expansion maxed out. i have a real life, a job, and i need to sleep / sounds funny but a fact )
we should have seasonals events and not weekly updates of stuff we really dont need, cause easy to craft...
any way, happy xmas.

BTW does anyone know if not getting trade tickets when doing the trades to get planks is a glitch?

I just sped up my exchange to see how many planks I'd get per exchange. I got 3 planks in one exchange. If that rate stays consistent it'll be a while to get the planks.




- Royal Exchange gives 4-5 Polarian Planks
- Kingdom Inn gives only 1 Polarian Plank

if you got the parts you can get 10 Polarian Planks in 24 hours



So it's 3-5 Planks per Exchange.

Well seeing as christmas, isnt happening for me this year and im sort of trapped in a third world country and bored out of my mind the majority of the day, well all day actually. I will see how far i can get in this dreadful quest. I have the time i just dont have the material or the gems.. But i wont give up so fast, working on it around the clock. I just wasted all thr enchanters essence i had making enchanted blocks and beamss to upgrade my theatre and jewler to level 5 and this quest shows up demanding ever so many essence. Good luck to me. If i can use the last 90 gems i have to skip where i cant proceed then it will be worth it. Im sure it will cost 200 gems or more after so here goes nothing!

I don't know how to get pictures, but have you done any trades where you give strawberries and sugar for energy? That's using the royal exchange. Its a blue and gold building with little clocks on the side that takes up 3 squares. Oh you also get trade tickets from there. I dont know what level you need, but if you are starting this quest you should be able to access it.

You must be fairly new. Its a building where you can exchange materials for trade tickets and other items like beams and blocks energy or food.

You can sell a building, just drag it into the woods and it'll give you the option.

guys if i have everything else and i only need:

should i go for it?

will i make it on time?

the funny thing is that level 5 is the easiest to finish (i think ...) lol

I'm not sure if I can finish this quest with holidays. I'm getting to the point that I am afraid to use any resources because of the timed quests. And now I don't do any without coming here first. I could not imagine making the deadlines without knowing what to stick up on.

traxle
12-20-13, 03:15 AM
Just a tip. If any of you have purchased the building and decided afterwards you do not want to waste your stock with this quest, you can sell your unbuilt building. Simply drag it into the woods where it should give you the option to sell.

Forever snow
10 living wood
30 glimmer dust
40 mushrooms

And it takes 12 hours

Planks

1 Lumin Essence
2 Enchanter's Essence
6 Troll Essence






Why my Royal exchange ask me 3 Enchanter's Essence?

i may be wrong, but i'm pretty sure you won't be able to have enough for ALL of the exchanges on hand..



Exchange Forever Snow
10x Living Wood
30x Glimmerdust
50x Mushrooms

Exchange Polarian Lichen
5x Magic Fruit
30x Glimmerbulb
20x Truffle


if we're optimistic and say each forever snow/lichen exchange give on average 10 and 4, respectively, you'd need to complete 5 forever snow quests and 2-3 polarion lichen quests (lvl 5 kingdom inn might help here). that translates to:

50x living wood
150x glimmerdust
250x mushroom
10-15 magic fruit
60-90 glimmerbulbs
40-60 truffles

knowing TL and their obsession with making everything go through a pseudorandom generator, my guess is the snow drops will be closer to what we saw in the kingdom inn quest which is 3-7 drops at a time. i'm hoping i'm wrong here and the drops are actually higher, but until someone posts otherwise i don't think this building is completable in the allotted time without spending a substantial amount of gems (even if you do work on this extensively, over the holiday season).

question for the devs: why the heck does everything need to be randomized? if you want us to have to do x number of adventures/exchanges to complete a certain step, make the drop guaranteed and 1 per adventure/exchange. possibly a slim chance for 2. but in the case of the kingdom inn, needing 90 tiles/logs with each adventure dropping 3-7 is really, REALLY irritating when you have a string of terrible "luck". timed events + leaving things to luck = disgruntled customers (just ask folks working on the summoning feature in dragon story).

And if I buy the stable afterwards, do I still have to built it?
Thanks

As far as I know, you don't have to go through the upgrades if you buy the stable for gems after the quest expires.
Faeries I've gotten from Ivy's hut and the Magic Garden. Sir Pigglesworth might drop them too. You need to have completed certain quests to get fairy in a jar drops. I have 18 of them dropped over 2 months or so.
Quests: I think it started after I got the Magic Garden and the Purple Cow.

Faeries are random drops from the magic garden and Ivy's hut. I've also had some from Sir Pig. Not sure what you mean about the stable, but all buildings require some building materials to complete. As far as I recall, the stables have pretty basic requirements.

After i read all comments, i decided to give up this quest.
1 - Not enought time (it's Christmas, we also need time for family)
2 - Too much materials (It's a quest, of course it's not so easy but this one ask a lot)
3 - Apples (You can choose using gems to speed up a quest or not. But a quest that require to use your gems with no choice, no thanks !)
Too bad i almost finished the level 2 =/
I love challenges (quest) but I also love to spend time with family and friends for christmas. This one, TL, i think you have no though about it.
But still love you guys and the game (^.^)v

12-20-13, 03:58 AM
No, you're not. I just completed the first 12 hour exchange. Got 4 planks, no trade ticket. As far as I'm concerned that's it for this quest. If you do a trade of ANY kind then you should get a ticket, apart from when you exchange the trade tickets themselves for building materials or an expansion permit.
