Hi All!

Darn, we spoiled some of the goodies a day early, but there are a few things you haven't seen yet ;)

Here is today's update:


1) The Blythewood Sapling Part 1
-As promised we are continuing the main storyline
-To start this quest you must be Level 30+ and unlocked Mythic Essence
Summary: Old Thomas reaches out to a long-time friend. A letter arrives that may split the Kingdom in half. A life is saved and welcomed into the Kingdom.

Quest Chain:
Dear Agnes
Gift Of Wonder
Can't Fool The Ladies
Four Page Letter
Dear Agnes Part 2
The Blythewood Sapling
To Be Selfless, No Matter The Cost


2) The Greenhouse
-We added 3 new crafts: Floral Glow, Vital Extract, and Faerie Elixir
-Combine Floral Glow and Vital Extract together to create Faerie Elixir!

3) Mermaid Pond
-Drops Water and Mermaid Scales more reliably
-A little story on this... What Glimmergate and I originally had in mind was a small fountain that would drop Mermaid Scales. But we mulled it over and decided it wasn't going to be good enough. So, creativity took over and the final product is the beautiful pond with a mermaid statue coming out of the water that you see now. We hope you guys enjoy it!

4) Max Level Raised to 50
-YES! It's real! Congratulations to everyone that leveled up! Thank you for playing Castle Story! We really enjoy working on the game and we hope you're having fun :o
-Energy Rewards: Available to players that reached Levels 33, 36, 40, 45, and 50
Check your Quest Log and open up the congratulatory quest(s)! Read through it and then hit "Accept" when you ready. Then, go into your Inventory to place the Energy Crate you received from completing the quest. Chop down the Energy Crate and pick up the Energy reward!


For next week, The Blythewood Sapling Part 2 will be released.
And don't forget, "something blue, times two!" - The Mermaid Pond was just one of the blue things released this month :cool:

So is the mermaid pond only a gem buy or is it attainable from the sapling quest line, I wonder?

Wow, that's a lot of things in one update. Thank you TeamLava!!! :D And especially thank you for the Mermaid Pond! I've been really craving for something like that.


Summary: Old Thomas reaches out to a long-time friend. A letter arrives that may split the Kingdom in half. A life is saved and welcomed into the Kingdom.

Does this mean we're getting someone new to walk around our Kingdom? ;)

Thank you for the adjusting the levels. With Castle Story its sometimes difficult to tell who is still an active neighbor. The higher levels will make it easy to remove some of my neighbors since I haven't added any in months. ~~ Will be welcoming new neighbors so feel free to add me.

this happened to everyone




don't know what you mean by Quest log..
Quest log is the book in the top right corner that contains all your ongoing quests, depending on your new level you should have a 9 day quest to collect an energy crate, when you click accept it drops into your inventory, you can then place it into your kingdom, tap it to open and your energy is given a boost.

I so agree!!! I have two quest lines to finish that both require 20 mithril and am only averaging 1 mithril drop every two weeks. This is really a bummer because I won't be able to update the fairy respite and I need it to get the seeds (other than the observatory and Ivy's Hut) for the greenhouse.

I do have one question though, can we have 2 regular mines and 2 deep mines? My space is pretty tight right now but I do not want to give up one of my regular mines for the additional deep mine.

There is a couple of new crafts as announced on the first post

Though looking at the requirements it is a little time consuming.

Floral Glow
requires 5 red petal, 5 purple petal and 5 glimmer dust, 15 minute craft time
vital extract
5 piles of seeds, 15 mushroom, 3 living wood, 2 hours
20 energy
10 floral glow, 4 vital extract and 20 water, 2 minutes

Yes, i was aware of there being "3" new crafts. But I mentioned the faerie craft because the ultimate objective to the three crafts were the 20 energy fills. Read we all do, interpreting and posting is more pertinent. I have no issues with the objective, it's not too far apart from say the meat delivery which perhaps needs far more collects to convert the way I see it.

you can have 2 of each mine. I think it's worth it to have all four.

Yes you can, I already have 2 regular mines and 2 deep mines... Not sure how much that helps in the search for Mithril.. It's a struggle,. But at least you get a lot more silver to craft into the elusive Mithril... Lol

Hi there, the cost of the Faerie Elixir is just insane (cost of 250 energies plus water, gain of 20)
it?s better to wait just one hour!!!

10 Floral Glow
5 red petals x 10 = 50 energies
5 purple petals x 10 = 50 energies
5 glimmer dust x 10 = 50 energies
total of 150 energies

Vital Extract
5 piles of seed x 4 = 20 enrgies
15 mushrooms x 4 = 60 energies
5 fertilizers x 4 = 20

20 water

Glimmer dust and mushrooms can drop at the same time from mushroom circles, so a little saving their, plus water is a by product from mermaid scale hunting.
If you have a hedge then petals are easy to get, so a few of the ingredients are not currently being used too much, but quite a few players are maxed on them.
fertilizer is gained whilst collecting milk
Nice to see some under utilised items being used, would be even better if we could get trade tickets too :)

So is the mermaid pond only a gem buy or is it attainable from the sapling quest line, I wonder?

Wooooo I am so excited by all this new stuff. TeamLava you ROCK you really do! :D

Most of these recent updates are not accessible to me yet as I'm still working on unlocking the glimmergate, but knowing all these new quests are in the pipeline is just brilliant. And it means I have time to stock up on new items before I need them! I've nearly built my second greenhouse as now the new crafts have been added there's stuff I can do already with the seeds/fertiliser I'm getting as byproducts.

Really looking forward to new Exchange trades too - there are often occasions where I don't have enough of the right components for a trade so more options will be fab.

Thank you Aggwynn for clarifying that. I'm a newbie on this forum, my level says 44 nearing 45. Reading all posts so far thought maybe the outcome of this quest that gives an output with the 3x3 requirement .. Maybe we get the mermaid pond as quest reward but that's not true

Good news. You won't miss out. Once you've met the requirements you'll be able to start them. Usually it's only seasonal quests that need to be started before they become unavailable.

I appreciate all the work put into the updates over the last few months. Sure ... Not all have been to everyone's liking but that's also how it is in real life. What's the rush? Is there a race to be first or something that I missed. There's no time limit so no rush to get done in 1 or 2 days.

Precisely! Remember when TL put out shorter quest lines, and people would finish all the goals within hours without using gems to speed up?

On the same day that the goals came out people where posting "Is that it? I'm SO bored! We need more! Bad TL! More goals! Goals that take longer! More more more more bored more bored more more more bored more bored..." Well, TL listened to those complaints.

If you want to craft mithril you will need Knowledge Shard. They are extra rare drops from the Table of Tabernum. There's total 4 of them, and you'll need 4th in order to craft mithril.

Those who have gems or cash to spare can speed up the quest and let us know what's ahead. I'm hoping that the blythewood sapling has something to do with living wood, which is so hard to find!

The other should be new, giving mushroom n glimmer dust.

No, they are in 2 groups in my inventory. One with 2, and one with 3.
If they are the same, then there should be just 1 fluttermush ring showing x5, shouldn't it?

I read earlier today somewhere that they are different. This year's Valentine's items do not give the same as last year's. If you go into your inventory and touch the info thingy, you'll see the description of the items are different.

This is correct.

Pink things bought this year or received from adventures this year do not drop the special pink things from last year. However, these pink things do trigger Lovecupines.

Pink things from last year will continue to drop pink things.

Pink things crafted or bought through the Love Shack will drop pink things.

According to German legend, there was once a beautiful young maiden, named Lorelei, who threw herself headlong into the Rhine river in despair over a faithless lover.
Upon her death she was transformed into a siren and could from that time on be heard singing on a rock along the River near St. Goar.
Her hypnotic music lured sailors to their death. The legend is based on an echoing rock with that name near Sankt Goarshausen, Germany.

I vote for wizard school x 2, then barracks, red trilium (if you don't have any valentines flowers), maple tree and mermaid pond. After that a sheep and fruit trees, if you get impatient waiting for them to come from adventures, an extra glimmerdust trove, a second pink alicorn (so cute!), the fortune teller and the beautiful decorative fountain :-)

It was super cool getting off of work and seeing all this energy rewarding! Also I always wondered if all of those little blue stars of XP points actually were accruing and they were! I got two crates and am now at level 38. Woo! It's been stuck on 30 for so long its awesome to see something different. Don't like that the mermaid pond is for gems but oh well, guess I'll have to save for it.

I never did get a trigger for the Thomas quest. so... can I not do it yet? We all know there are so far 17 pages on this thread and I read like 6 of them lol. So please don't snap at me for asking repeat questions! We all do it. Thanks guys! Very excited though about this update overall. ; )

Thank you shipower (and maguar) so much for the peek ahead! My chateau is in storage due to lack of space, as I try to compromise my design as little as possible. Time to swap it out so it is ready for collection... Now to find a different coin-only building to store instead. :)

There is a couple of new crafts as announced on the first post

Though looking at the requirements it is a little time consuming.

Floral Glow
requires 5 red petal, 5 purple petal and 5 glimmer dust, 15 minute craft time
vital extract
5 piles of seeds, 15 mushroom, 3 living wood, 2 hours
20 energy
10 floral glow, 4 vital extract and 20 water, 2 minutes

Tried it and won't be doing it again not only time consuming but also Energy consuming just like with the 60 Strawberry + and 40 Glimmerbulb, not worth it for me. I can use that much energy on something else.

The second post on the first pages tells you what you need to get this goal.

On all update threads, the first two posts of the thread are constantly updated to include all the known information about the update including what you need to start goals. You do not have to read all the pages in an update thread to get information--reading the first page is often sufficient.

From the second post of the thread:

To start this quest you must be Level 30+ and unlocked Mythic Essence


Mythic Essence was released on January 9th. Be sure to do half of the quest chain to unlock Mythic Essence!

I will finish making 5 Mystic Essences tonight ( Hurrah! ) :) (one dragon scale and zero maticore parts left) But I now must choose if I should spend them on the sapling quest or on the upgrade to the garden. I have all the other parts ready to go for the garden, but I also have everything supplied for the rest of the sapling quest and the part 2 next week.

Back and forth I go so I would love to hear what others think since I can't seem to make up my mind. :cool:

I'm in exactly this same boat. Can't do both. Manty whiskers are in short supply and it will take weeks to get enough to continue. I get maybe one per day and we need 50 to make 5 essence. That's nearly two months of waiting on Manty parts!

I'm really surprised at this. I never expected to be so far along in the game only to be brought to a screeching halt over something we never used before!

Although I looked at skipping with gems. The cost of mythic essence for the maze is 15 gems per. The cost for the sapling goal is 10 gems. So you'd save 25 gems if you use 5 toward the maze and gem over the sapling goal. Why they're not the same cost remains a mystery.

I think I can swing that if worse comes to worse. The value of 50 gems against the time of about a month is not a bad exchange. I had not thought of that perspective. Thank you.

Question: With limited acquisition of Dragon scales to produce Mythic Essence, which is better... Upgrade Royal Maze to Level 2 or save the Mythic Essence to acquire Blythewood Sapling? Thanks in advance!

Hi, just saw your post, which quite funnily enough was just after I made my decision, which was to focus on the sapling.

The reason for this was:

a. The maze. At present I have 6 glimmer pitchers (1 more than needed), 3 glimmer rafflesia (2 more than needed) and 7 glimmer traps (still require 3 more). In relation to making more plants, I have 2 dark seeds (still need 1 more just to try and make a plant) - BUT - I only have 6 shards and 0, I repeat 0, fragments. I do have 24 pile of seeds. Therefore to get my remaining plants, I still need a heap of shards and fragments, which come very slow and a few more seeds. Then there is no guarantee that I will get 3 traps in a row.

I had 6 mythic essence.

B. the sapling. I had 3 pages in stock, so just had to make 1 more and also 4 black inks. When that was made, the choice was, use the mystic now or wait for the maze or not.

I chose the sapling as the letters are now in the exchange, which takes 3 days to mature. In that time I hope to get more dragon scales (I only have 2 at present), but I do have 75 manti whiskers. So, at least In 3 days my dragon scales (I also have 2 dragons) will maybe getting close to making a few more mythics and in that time those pesky shards and fragments will drop so that I can make some seeds for more plants for the maze.

Basically my gamble was, use the mystic now (with 1 up my sleeve), see what comes in the next 3 days, continue on collecting and making what I can until the night before the next update (about 5 days) and decide to whether to gem (hopefully) a small amount only, or continue to plug along if I am no where near what is required.

Sorry for the long winded reply. Hope it makes sense. Cheers

Me too! (I do have maze upgraded though). I am a little behind on this new one and I'm about to get the 10th Thomas's collection. Looking at upcoming requirements shows a total of 8 mythic essense for this. I have 6 made but I'm short 13 whiskers to make the final 2. My manti keeps trying to give me fur which I am now maxed out on.

You're lucky that you have the maze upgraded and extra mythic essence! I didn't realize until last week that we needed to do the Discover Adamant line to get the mythic essence. I had been told that that line wasn't needed in order to continue the main quest line. Anyway, we still have a few days until the next update, and I'm going to get as much done as I can between now and then, and make a final decision next week. Maybe I'll get a second Manty soon and that will help.

Thanks for your input Outhouse01. Fortunately, I have crafted all the plants I needed and is waiting on the last of the Mythic Essence. Unfortunately, with only 1 dragon in my Queendom it might take me up until the next week's update to acquire enough scales for the 5th essence (Is it bad to wish your dragon had dandruff? Lol). Just as well, might be worth waiting to see what this sapling will reward us with before committing valuable commodity :o

the Sapling is part of the main questline, so I would do that first.
The maze is a side quest and a fully upgraded maze will just give you coins occasionally, but who knows what goodies await on the main story.

They may BOTH be part of the main quest line. I don't think the maze is fully upgraded yet at level 2 - maybe just for now. Aggwynn responded: "What? You're not done!" in another thread when Ajax posted that the garden was done. Seems like there is still more ahead for us on the maze...

How can you tell what level the Fairie Respite is? I click on it and it just says Fairie Respite. But I think I did everything and it has green garlands.
The fully upgraded, level 5 Respite has the faerie statue in it.

The fully upgraded, level 5 Respite has the faerie statue in it.

Actually lv. 4 Faerie Respite has faerie statue too, but lv. 4 has silver statue, while lv. 5 has golden one. Also lv. 5 has floral garland around the top of respite.

For those that don't have gems, or can't afford to buy them. Maybe there can be a caravan or something to get dragon scales and/or manticore whiskers. Another dragon or manticore would help. In 1 week I only got 1 dragon scale.

I really appreciate the info people share early on after new releases - and the fabulous moderators here ... you are all wonderful!

I am still visiting Thomas, and have barely started this quest, but it was very helpful to know I would need a 3 x 3 space. I was able to slowly move things around in the kingdom, store some bushes and cottages and mushrooms, add the new crop plots, and leave a lovely empty space for my little sapling when it finally comes!

I am trying to get trade tickets for the last two expansions, but that is a s l o w process ... so no room for a mermaid pond yet.

A big THANK YOU to TL for the lovely energy crates. There was a fire in the electrical room at our condo yesterday, and we will be without power until at least Tuesday, so I can't recharge my phone easily. When I did get it charged, I used two crates like a glutton, but I have one left. I am one of those people who sets the timer and visits the game as often as possible, so I guess I will be learning patience this weekend, as I wait for a chance to charge up, and then work like crazy before my battery runs out! Luckily I can recharge and play at work!

And - speaking of patience - I waited ages and ages to get an Alicorn last year, and finally got one. I used gems this year to speed up my pink Alicorn. I was checking my inventory on Wednesday and was surprised to find I had collected parts for another Alicorn without noticing. I was complaining to myself last year about the long wait (and determined to not use gems) and now this little fellow just dropped out of the sky without warning!

No kidding, my dragon hasn't dropped a scale in I don't even know how long. Maybe he has a calcium deficiency...

I have a temporary space in mind, but until we know what the little sapling will grow into, I can't plan for its permanent home. :)

Love the new update - glad the pond isn't animated ( itouch 4 ) wouldn't handle anger animation ..past 2 weeks the increase items are making it tough to play - but I do love the new stuff

All you manty whisker hunters ....by any chance , do you frequently check your inventory ? On my 2 accounts I found each had another manticore egg in it ( I always watch carefully if anything drops from nest but somehow didn't see 3 extra eggs over past 1 month ).... I also caught an extra egg by seeing in th shop it said I have inventory there ....

I now check Inventory every few days to see what I missed or is low on ..

Thanks for the idea, I usually check my forge to see if I have an egg, I just rechecked, nothing. I do have a burning ember to help hatch a dragon egg, but no egg.

I know! I just sent off the letter to Agnes and now, no dairy or meat exchanges for 3 days! I might as well just put away the game. I guess I'll work on maxing out on ice cream, bread and noodles. Oh, and trying for glimmer fragments, which I've not had a one of in 2 days.

I purposely made 1 extra black ink the other day when creating the letter. Maybe it's because I am used to the coloured ones, but I thought the black ink jar looked gorgeous! Lol. So I made an extra to keep :p. I figured it may disappear since it is listed above the regular items in the workshop. I have 2 days left! :)

So I commanded my Knight not to return to the Kingdome without a dragon scale...my dragon burped out a light armor tonight, lol. Oh well, hoping for better results tomorrow:p

Okay, so have been reading through here and step 4 says we have to visit the Royal Chateau. Due to space issues it was something I never purchased. So I went to go see if I could get it now and it is not available. Any suggestions?? Will it become available when we get to that step?
Never mind went back to check again.....was mixed up with the royal manor. (Feeling foolish) ��

Yeah, I noticed that about Faerie Respite, too.
I don't know about the dark seeds, because I have finished my Dark Garden and since then I didn't craft any dark seeds. Before I would usually get 2-4 seeds.

I'm finding that without the habit of saving for energy, I'm actually getting other things done. All my roasted chicken usually goes towards the energy exchange, but I've managed to make 4 spicy feasts in the past 36 hours, so that's great. I'm enjoying having to do other things.

02-25-14, 05:39 AM
I tried it, stored one and buy one more sapling.. You need 3 mystic essence, 10 faerie murmur, 25 fertilizer and 50 waters to build each of them...
If you have extra resource

Also, now I bought a second sapling, I only need a few more waters to finish.

Only one more Mythic Essense to go. Waiting for a few more Dragon Scales so my inventory doesn't drop below 40 (@42 right now). Already have about 80 manticore whiskers.
