Trigger the Boar will start the new quest.

The Dire Boar is not a guaranteed spawn from your Sparkling Mines. It is high (50%+) but it may take a few tries to spawn.

Remember this update moves us backwards in time a little - it is tuned for level 22 players who have just killed the Troll King, and don't yet know the consequences of their actions.

Also remember that monsters will not spawn if you currently have an active spawn in your kingdom! So make sure all your beasts are cleared away before you try to spawn the Boar.

Ponds and wells can trigger the boars as well

Note that if you're battling greselda she counts as a monster

Beating the Boar will trigger the new quests

Nice :) I hope the swamp pond is not too big. I had to put away my barracks to place the b. sapling.
Can you please give expansions TL :) I remember reading somewhere it's gonna be in a future update but hopefully it's sooner than later.

I saw the Swamp before it was removed and it seems it will be 3x3. I really hope i'm wrong.

EDIT: it turns out that the swamp is actually 2x2. It will be much easier to fit this in a crowded Kingdom.

bethmadison
03-20-14, 11:15 AM
I think someone said it's 3x3 in another thread. It was accidentally put in the market for a bit.

I don't understand how people are OUT of room. I still have one more expansion to get and while I'm not rolling in the room I can easily make more without loosing all of the needed componants. I have two of all the crafting buildings, and I have at least one of everything else. I also have a ton of roads and a bunch of wall that could go. I also have more than enough resources to get/keep buildin on everything I need... I'm running out of inventory room more than land space.

Yes, if we pull up all our walkways, line up all our buildings as close as possible, stack animals next to each other, get rid of decorations and destroy our beautifully arranged kingdoms, then yes, we can fit more stuff in. Of course that also increases the chance of accidentally double clicking items and wasting gems.

Well it's probably because if one is good then 3 or more are better, libraries, conservatories, windmills, if a quest calls for 2 or 3 visits, then we build 2 or 3 of the buildings, saves waiting on time between visits.

bethmadison
03-20-14, 11:39 AM
Come look at my kingdom... I have serious space for more stuff... The only "crowding" I have is trees and I could move some around but they are surrounding my "forest areas"... I have two library's and two theaters. My animals aren't crowded although I don't have them all out because I don't need them. I rarely hit a gem trap and the only time I have in the past ten plus months (2x) has been because I hadn't fully woken up yet and so was playing half asleep... Not good!

I have more roads then I've seen in any if my neighbours and I was maxed at walls but I haven't added any since the last update... I have set aside room by my troll pit for the swamp and I have a ton of space in the middle of my kingdom as well as a large chunk by my "nest"....

I'm always maxed on flowers and hate the bobbing watering can so I only pull out the flowers I need at the point I need them.

So I'm just not getting it?!

*shrug* I have two or three of different buildings and simply pull them out when needed. Just energy sucks the rest of the time. I have more than enough money on a regular basis... My point is there is more than enough room for at least one of every building plus two of all the crafting/mining/animal buildings plus lots of other stuff... Sure I'll take more expansions but saying they are desparetly needed is overkill...

Aaaah.. But I have all of that and more.. And I can easily accommodate at least 2-3 more 3x3 buildings .. That apart having more exams ions just allows us to design the kingdom better .. Though from a lot who ask for this regularly , I've seen some kingdoms and they can be designed a lot better.:p

Didn't mean you personally, tigarlilyvol :)

I did say that having more expansions would be nice, while I've done my best in keeping the kingdom optimised, having more space would just make our kingdoms a lot cooler and nicer. So I'm all game for expansions , lots of it... !!

You must be either new to the game or not wanting to get more royal points. Older players with tons of buildings for more royal points, need more space. With new max limit on royal buildings, we all can use more room.

Yes! It's a red boar with dark grey navy down its back. I popped it on collecting a normal mine not upgraded, and it has 8 energy. I didn't kill it though because it's on my sons game, so it will sit there til he gets to it.

Checked a regular mine, triggered the Boar. Next goal was to check the farmhouse, stables, and hatchery. Next goal after that is to find 5 trolls...and visit the troll pit. Dang it! I have to wait until tomorrow now unless I speed it with gems.

Patti no quest line automatically appears in your book. You have to trigger the boar to appear and kill that before the quest starts, so you probably have the ability but have to trigger the boar first.

I've used 80 energies collecting from everything that triggers trolls (except crops) and haven't gotten a single troll. LOL. Good job TL. I know the appearance rate never changes - hehehe. This is going to be a long one just getting a troll. Really. I never collect from anything on Thursday until the next quest appears so I had lots to collect

Good question, I was going to ask the same myself. - how do we trigger trolls? We need 5

Harvesting Cocoa
Harvesting Glimmerbulbs
Checking Mushrooms
clicking Royal Buildings

I got all 5 trolls with Cocoa. i had a feeling we would need to spawn trolls, so I planted them earlier this morning. :)

I'm now on the part with 10 Wheat, Sugar Canes and Glimmerbulbs, so you may want to plant those now.

I've been thru 10 mushrooms and half a rock formation and nada. Now I'm out of energy. Okay, so I need to talk to myself, calm down, and remember it's more fun to just keep playing regularly and things will progress. You would think I would learn with the same thing every week, but no! I must get frazzled and run around like a pink chicken with her head off. ;)

I got all 5 trolls within 25 mushroom collections. Mined for rock 24 times in the meantime and got nothing, so definitely just the mushrooms that worked for me. Not that getting the trolls so quick was much advantage as still have to wait for my sugar cane to grow anyway.

Well, I collected from all my mines (2 deep, 2 normal) and got nothing. I don't normally need to force close to get updates, but did then in the hope it would help. Once back on, I spent precious gems on speeding up both normal mines, tapped on them. Still no boar. Usually I keep Thursday night as my 'update night' - partner knows better than to interrupt me! - but that's now spoilt as I'm not going to waste more gems on speeding up the mine. Not happy :(

Checked a regular mine, triggered the Boar. Next goal was to check the farmhouse, stables, and hatchery. Next goal after that is to find 5 trolls...and visit the troll pit. Dang it! I have to wait until tomorrow now unless I speed it with gems.
Thank you, that worked, 😀 I have been waiting and force closing and nothing.

Cool.

For reference for those planning ahead for Stage 8:
Faerie Elixir from the Greenhouse
1 Faerie Elixir = 10 Floral Glow + 4 Vital Extract + 20 Water (2 minutes crafting time)

1 Floral Glow = 5 Red Petals + 5 Purple Petals + 5 Glimmerdust (15 minutes crafting time)
1 Vital Extract = 3 Piles of Seeds + 15 Mushrooms + 3 Living Wood (2 hours crafting time)

Broken down..., the Total Resources needed for 1 Faerie Elixir:
50 Red Petals
50 Purple Petals
50 Glimmerdust
12 Piles of Seeds
60 Mushrooms
12 Living Wood
20 Water

Time to stock or restock on Red Petals!!!

You have to trigger the dire boar by collecting from the regular mines.
Once you defeat it, the dialog & quest appears.

glimmergate
03-20-14, 01:58 PM
The Dire Boar is not a guaranteed spawn from your Sparkling Mines. It is high (50%+) but it may take a few tries to spawn.

Remember this update moves us backwards in time a little - it is tuned for level 22 players who have just killed the Troll King, and don't yet know the consequences of their actions.

Also remember that monsters will not spawn if you currently have an active spawn in your kingdom! So make sure all your beasts are cleared away before you try to spawn the Boar.

Thanks glimmergate. I figured as much that it wasn't a guaranteed spawn. Hopefully I'll get him to show up next time around.

I got the boar immediately on one account, still haven't gotten it on my two others. One of those i think I'm just having bad luck, but on the other one I still have Queen Greselda to defeat... wonder if she's monster-blocking me?!? (Working on her while I wait for my mines to re-charge.)

I am level 50, and have no active 'spawn' in my kingdom but have not yet seen the boar. I know that random drops are a part of many of the CS quests but it is a bit much to have a whole new storyline started in such a way. Many players are several stages along the way and I'm still waiting - as are some others - for the starter's pistol! I really don't see why it was necessary to do that.

I just got my last one chopping only 4 times on rock outcropping. Got the others from chopping rocks too. Course it took a few to get all 5. Mushrooms didn't work at all for me.
Just waiting on my glimmer bulbs to mature and then I'll have to wait until tomorrow to collect from the troll pit for the 2nd time.

After that:
Thurston Went Feral!
Kill 6 Fire boars

Are these different boars?

Got my boar after 4th regular mine collection. Harvested dozens of each of wheat, cocoa beans, strawberries, mushrooms, corn, collected from all coin buildings and some several times and nothing. Finally bought a rock outcropping, first wack got a troll. 15 more whacks and nothing. Full on most everything the rock gives me so just getting coins. I hate chopping rocks and trees when I'm full. Plus I'm pretty full on all the stuff I would use the rock items to make. Argh.

I drink it like milk, since I'm lactose intolerant. That's why it was in my mouth when I was reading your post and it came out my nose. It's a spit take, silly. Let me just check...no, there's no FDA label on the bottle, so I'm not sure what's in it. It makes me strong like bull, and it has less sugar than pineapple juice. I don't know about Ellie. Perhaps she's part wolverine?

I cannot get this quest line to even start...collected numerous times from the sparkling mine,but no boar.

Yes,I do have the requirements.....patience is a virtue I guess,but a little discouraging when others have almost finished the quest line & you cannot even start it.:(


It's really a quest to last the whole week and I personally wouldn't want to be finished within hours of it starting.

I am sure you will get your boar soon .....and from the look of the rest of the quest, you'll have it finished within a few days. :)

Craft 1 Faerie Elixir <----------------******** DON'T CRAFT TILL YOU GET TO THIS STAGE***** I crafted the potion thinking it would produce the bottle for me to store when I reached this point, all it did was give me 20 energy and nothing in my inventory... Mod's is this correct? Or should I received a bottle for inventory?

You get immediate energy not anything for storage. I've updated the relevant section to make it clearer.

Another post that just leaves me full of questions:SNIP
-and nothing to do with this but I still can't get an answer to: why does Ellie eat bees? (I really need to know)
Ellie watched a special on Japanese haute cuisine and became intrigued with Hachinoko. But she is just a dog and unable to purchase a plane ticket to fly to Japan and lacking opposable thumbs to call in a reservation at a restaurant she decided to come up with her own version of Hachinoko by eating a bee hive with bees. It wasn't the same but what does she know, she's a dog. Now I have a question for you: how is it you are familiar with this piece of literature enough to be able to find a picture of it and post here for all to see....hmmm????

I'm up to goal 'Thurston went feral', if anyone has done this step, where are you finding the boars? I got one from a sparkling mine collection so far out of the 6 required. Any extra help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Wow I got mine almost all in a row! I collected from my mushrooms and buildings and they came in really fast.

Even though I'm well past the goal that requires the dire boars, I'm still getting them almost every time I collect from pond/well and sparkling mine. It's actually quite annoying! Seems ridiculous I'm getting so many when some people can't get any - hope you guys get them soon, I'd give you one of mine if I could!

After we spawn first boar and trigger the quest, can we trigger more of them? Or do we have to wait until that goal that requires us to beast 6 boars?

I would really like one of that Feral Magic in my inventory.

You have to wait for the next goal which requires them before you see more boars.

I read somewhere that boar popup rate is much less once you've got the swamp, so I'm taking my time. Get a boar nearly every time I collect from a pond but mine mostly drop fur and the regular teeth.

I finished building the Swampy Pond this morning by gemming past the last Troll Pit visit. I have yet to see any Dire Boars since finishing the pond, and I've collected from my wells ~36 times. (On the part where we had to kill 6 Dire Boars, I spawned 6 Dire Boars when only just collecting from 12 wells). I wish I had held off on placing and building the pond to stock up on boar tusks.

I've only gotten 1 of the boar tusks and only 1 of the feral magic. Waiting on the last troll pit visit and battling many boars in the mean time, but those items are pretty rare looks like.

The pit won't be ready until tomorrow afternoon so I'll have plenty more show up by then. Really hoping to get another feral magic as they are quite beautiful to look at. Good job TL.

My boars stopped appearing as soon as I got the swampy pond goal. I tried just not placing the pond for a while, but they'd definitely stopped even before I did so (they basically stopped once I collected from the troll pit).

What did you collect on to trigger the boar after placing the swamp pond?

In one full emptying of energy.....1 from 4 ponds (just way less frequent than before), 2 from 3 glimmerdust troves, 1 from sir pigglesworth, 1 from Thurston's fort and 1 from sparkling mine (while collecting from numerous buildings).

I have placed my pond, but haven't finished building it yet (shortage of living wood!)
