edit(KP) 4-1-14- Looks like harvesting Strawberries are starting to trigger the boars!


Hi all,

The Dire Boar spawn rate is the same as a Skunkupine/Fangbeast/Troll. The reason you encountered a Dire Boar so frequently before completing the Swampy Pond was explained in the story.

The Kingdom was under attack by A LOT of Dire Boars. To combat the attack on the Kingdom, Kaz suggested we build a Swampy Pond to keep them away. Once the Swampy Pond was built, the boars retreated.

I hope this clears up the confusion =)!


Droprate on boars is the same as the droprate for trolls, skunkupines, and fangbeasts (it's all identical).

Those of you having trouble finding boars, try these:
- Sparkling Mine
- Character's houses (like Ivy's Hut and Thurston's Fort)
- Special buildings (like the Tablet of Tabernum and the Magic Garden)
- Iron Rich Rock

You chased the boars off pretty well last week, but they won't stay deceived for long - expect boars to spawn from more places soon!


Dire boar spawns have been added to ponds, wells, and strawberries.

Last 3 trolls I've killed have given me horns and glimmerdust. Ugh. I've gone through 27 red mushroom circles for only a single troll. One of the boars I fought dropped an essence though. So far this morning, I've burned through over 200 energy for about 7 boars, 3 trolls and a handful of fangbeast and have gotten 1 essence. Apparently the luck of Irish ended 10 days ago. :P

Next go round should net me a bunch more, I'm hoping anyway. Probably have twice of 1 kind though before I reach the goal on both. Just how my luck works.

Looking at the dialog above this goal, have a feeling the kitchen's gonna be needed next since it says something about a favorite meal. Glad I only put some sugar in there.

I haven't fight any boar yet, so I dunno know if they drop the pelt or not! However like you said, the pelt can be obtained from the new adventure:)

Does putting the swamp away increase boar appearances? I just put mine away to try.... I have like no boar drops :/
Prior to building the swampy pond, I could get a boar about 75% of the time from fishing.

After putting the pond away and fishing in all my other ponds and wells, I got zero boars :(

Good idea, but it didn't help.

Ohhh, the butterfish is so cute! Makes me feel guilty that miso butterfish is one of my favorite dishes to have on Friday evenings.

Why only Fridays? Is that the only day they let themselves be caught (in which case I'm staying in tomorrow fishing!) or is it some rule - like only eating oysters when the month has an 'r' in it - that says butterfish can only be caught on a day that has an 'f' or an 'i' in it!!! ;)

I think the only way to get the boars to spawn is collecting from sparkling mines if you've placed your swamp pond.

Ok. I'm calling you out on this one! Lol!!

"We don't know if or when any boar items will be needed, so don't panic. I, too, just went ahead, skipped the troll pit and built the swamp and kinda wish I hadn't, but if we need those things later, we'll be able to get them. They have to let us get more stuff if the items are needed. Plus, there's still things like fey crystals that have no use yet. I absolutely refuse to panic about it. TL knows people skip ahead with gems and they must have taken that into account.

Maybe I'm just being hopeful. " -Queenzod, from part 1 thread

I've only gotten trolls since the first trap. Before the ponds and wells spawned the boars but not this time. I collected from the mines just before the boar trap :-( Any ideas?

I did get one catfish. Even the catfish are cute :-) I wonder if the food trade one will give us any of the fish? It's my favorite.

I waited a good while before I put in the swampy pond but I still only got one of the magic pouches. I don't I've seen any pelts though. It must be a new drop

Oh, geez! Gaffigan and Wonka!? I've been away too long! Missed too much.

Love the name 'dire boar', btw. Been calling them 'dreadful bores' in my head, though. Teehee.

And has anyone noticed all the super awesome real world references in the storyline? Is there a thread for this? I'd love to see the storyline unadulterated by goals. Props to the CS plot writers. It's pretty great stuff. :)

So, after the boars, we are instructed to collect butter fish and cat fish from the ponds and swamp. I have collected 6 times from the swamp and 24 times from the ponds and I have gotten nothing. No mermaid scales, no red fish, no butterfish, no catfish. I am maxed on water - so that is being dropped. Have I missed something? Are these fish REALLY so rare that 30 collections have yielded ZERO?

Expansions! Yay! - We can only hope! If we DO get some next week, then there also must be more..... The last time we got some it wasn't the only thing if I remember right.

I have just got my last butter fish and am now cooking. Still have 2 catfish in inventory.

On a brighter note all this fishing has increased my mermaid scale stocks greatly. I know it won't last, but at least now I can make a few essences.

I am now alternating between meat delivery and jeweller trade to use up excess stock of water and fish. It will once again become a balancing act very soon, as to not deplete and restock the other items in these trades, within my energy boundaries. Back to strategy regarding collection items. Happy fishing everyone. ��

You can craft it in advance as long as you do not collect it until after the new goal starts. It will not count if it is already in your inventory.

Craft 2 of each before hand. Hold of crafting a third until that goal appears. Unless you craft the 3rd just before the next goal. If that is the case, hold off collecting them until the goal appears. You should be good to go then. Cheers

I've got enough of everything to do 1 adventure, but multiple adventures is going to take a while!

What are you thinking,,, we need 3 each for the adventure, a lot of people will not be happy ,,, the boar should be more plentiful ,, it's not showing up.... A lot of people will not be able, to make the club and horn ,,or what ever it is,,TL your aways talking about balance,,, this is not balance , I'm afraid a lot of people will give up on you

I actually welcome the fact that TL slow these quests down. There is no part 3 for this next week, so it is not like we have to have it done in a certain time. If there is no quest in the book there is nothing else really to do.

I know it is frustrating waiting for things to drop (I only got my first Alicorn part this week, lol) but I would rather be waiting for something than just be finished, nothing to do.

In the five days since I placed my swamp I have had one or two boars show up, so they are fairly rare - so I am not expecting these boars to show up within 24 hours of the quest starting. For those who can't wait, the gem cost to trap them is fairly small; its an amount that most people can collect free of charge from a few adventures.

Yes I understand what your saying,,, but I was just reading every body posts,,, and understand there frustration for those not getting the boar or the drops, and TL is always talking about balance. They should of gave them more time with the boar to collect before this quest line started. Or make the boar more available and we all know it doesn't drop tusk every time,,but as long as they are getting the boar they will think they are getting some where,, am I making since,,

If I start collecting the new fish before the goal about gaining 5 of each, will my pre-collected fish count towards the goal?
Doesn't appear so ... I just got the part to pop up for gaining 5 of ea fish & the ones I already collected before that aren't showing...
But if they suddenly appear towards the count once I get 1 more, I'll let ya know ;)

I've had one tusk since this entire troll storyline began last week and I know I'm not the only one. This is ridiculous! I am not going to buy 50 boar traps just to try to get these items. This is NOT the same as waiting for alicorn parts. You need multiples of these items to just get going with the quest. C'mon, TL! I am really angry about this. The animals have to SHOW UP first, and things that we need lots of have to drop more frequently than this.

I did not know last week to not do the quest as it unfolded, or that there would be such dire consequences to skipping one part with gems. This has never happened before, that you could skip one small step and have it ruin the gameplay for WEEKS! I've kept silent about the rates of things like sap and mermaid scales. Even living wood, because I know those drops do fall regularly. But to have NO drops at all because of a skip is just BS! Can I get a response?

I have one boar after I put swampy pond out. That's it and before when I had boar they didn't drop a lot of that magic thing. I always end up with other things that I already have. While other players gets tons of that magic thing. How fair is that?

My experience too. I'm 4 tusks short for the weapons, so bought a trap in the hope of getting at least 1 more but all I got from the resulting boar was a fur (I only have 95 of them!!). I do feel that if you spend gems on the traps you should get something that's needed for the quest in return.

03-28-14, 07:14 AM
Yes it is funny, you need 12 boar tusks for each adventure. I feel lucky now that I was hunting boars for all week with not finishing the swamp. I had like 70 tusks this way so it would be enough for about 6 adventures. TL made the boars pretty rare now, so for all who do not have a plenty of tusks it will take ages to get 12 for a single adventure.

Urgh,cannot catch even one of the new fish despite numerous collections, I have 3 normal ponds plus the swampy pond,(yes,I do have the goal in my book)....have a feeling that I will be stuck on this part for a very long time......

Be interested to know from those who have managed to collect all 10 (5 of each) how many collections it took.

I was advised that it took about 80 collections. I did it in 103.

Castloninian
03-28-14, 07:25 AM
I am so glad I delayed finishing my swampy pond because I've had only two boars since. In the end I bought two traps for the three boars needed, so I could continue. I am glad I did because I still haven't had a boar since yesterday evening and I have used lots and lots of energy (including 40 from levelling up). I don't have enough tusks for two adventures so I hope boars will start appearing again soon. And that when they do, they drop tusks because fur and bones are plentiful.

It seems like a very odd design choice to penalize players that spend/use gems to skip ahead.

@TeamLava,

Although I've been able to get my 2nd and 3rd Dire Boars through normal gameplay, it's not like players can trigger a Boar spawn by planting crops. So far, the only confirmed reports of Dire Boars spawned are from Sparkling Mines, Old Thomas' house, Thurson's Fort and the Tablet of Tabernum. Since collection times from those few buildings vary, I'd like to suggest to TeamLava that Dire Boars be added as possible spawns to Dragons, Manticores, the Knight's Hall and the Jousting Arena. Collecting from Dragons and Manticores is risk free, and those beasts are relatively rare. The Knight's Hall and Jousting Arena pair nicely with Thurston's Fort. Wells would be nice since the new Fish don't drop from them, and would give players a reason to keep both Wells and Ponds out.

I understand the need to make gameplay updates last for more than a week, but shouldn't this be a little bit easier to accomplish due to where it falls in the overall Castle Story story line? If this was a Level 40+ goal for players more invested into the game, I would understand...., but this is a Level 20-ish bracketed questline. I don't see a lot of veteran people rage quitting over this, but I do see the possibility of newer players giving up on the game over the frustrating frequency of Dire Boar spawns.

Thanks for all the updates and for listening!

Some other Dire Boar Tusk drop options/suggestions:
1) Random Dire Boar Tusk drops from the Knight's Hall - those Knight's must have collected some trophies from their adventures!

2) Random Dire Boar Tusk drops from Dragons - those Dire Boars are tasty morsels..., surely we could find a Boar Tusk from what Dragons eat! :)

3) A new Royal Exchange Trade - Please consider a Royal Exchange trade where we could trade Dragon Scales (10) + Mermaid Scales (20) + Glimmerbulbs (50) for 8-10 Boar Tusks + a Trade Ticket!

I'm experiencing something similar to what other people posted about above. I am trying to do "Humans Just Don't Understand". I bought 1 Dire Boar Trap for 5 gems like the game said (only b/c it said this quest gives 8 gems) and obviously got 1 Dire Boar this way. But I haven't been able to get any more since. If there is a problem with this, can TeamLava please let us know when it is resolved? If it isn't, can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong now when I'm trying to trigger the Boars? My Ponds and Wells used to get one almost every time and now I don't get anything. I almost jumped out of my skin earlier when I finally got something to trigger, but then I realized that it was just a Glimmer Troll. Thank you in advance.

03-28-14, 09:43 AM
I'm in the same boat as many. I have 4 tusks from before I built the swamp. Haven't seen a boar since except for two traps I bought. So it's about 5 days of collecting everything with no results, so I'm still on the first goal. Looking ahead I don't even have the urge to speed it up, because everything will take forever. Not like I can spring for one more trap and I can catch up. Hopefully next week's update will be more fun.

Hi all,

The Dire Boar spawn rate is the same as a Skunkupine/Fangbeast/Troll. The reason you encountered a Dire Boar so frequently before completing the Swampy Pond was explained in the story.

The Kingdom was under attack by A LOT of Dire Boars. To combat the attack on the Kingdom, Kaz suggested we build a Swampy Pond to keep them away. Once the Swampy Pond was built, the boars retreated.

I hope this clears up the confusion =)!

bigtail2
03-28-14, 09:47 AM
Agree with all that boars are appearing very infrequently, and even when they do, tusks etc continue to be rare drops.

Also, it would be nice to have the new fish drop from wells. I built mine because the ponds take up too much space. But now that we can only get fish from ponds (and get plenty of water/regular fish/scales from pond collections) the wells are pretty much pointless.

dalechristel
03-28-14, 10:02 AM
I have to agree with some of the other posters. Boars don't appear very often. If they have the same spawn rate as the other beasts, maybe we need to know what items actually spawn the boars. (not sure if this was posted somewhere) I know I have gotten them from the regular mine, but that's about it. (and that is not an item you can collect from very often) We get tons of fangbeasts because they spawn from almost any animal collection. If boars spawned from regular pond collections, that would at least give us a chance to collect the tusks needed for the rest of the challenge. (in a reasonable amount of time) Looking back, I kind of wish I hadn't built my swampy pond until after I had killed off a few hundred boars, to build up my inventory of those items.

ghjvcucjb
03-28-14, 10:05 AM
With the exception of the boar traps, I have had zero boars in my kingdom since placing the swamp this past weekend but a zillion of the other beasts. I'm only concern because I read we will be needing to go on multiple adventures to get these special pelts and I only have enough tusk for one.

ETA: I collect from everything and every building every day and have been focusing on mushroom rings.

Also wondering if anyone is still getting the cutie pie fish (my little ones nick name for the new fish) once they made the meals? I'm not getting any and wonder if I should stop collecting from ponds since I'm full on water, fish and close to full on mermaid scales or keep collecting if the cutie pies are still dropping. TIA

So far we have had reports of boars spawning from:-

Sabina's House
Sparkling Mine
Thurston's Fort
Magic Garden
Ivy's Hut
Tablet of Tarbernaum

I think you are right that although the spawn rate is the same as other beasts, the difference is the frequency of collections to the type of buildings that they spawn from, so you actually get much less than you would of other beasts.

I've collected from all my buildings since the update, even the farmhouse, cottage and spires I don't normally collect from and have not had one spawn yet

Thanks for this info. Maybe this will help. I have not been collecting from Sabina, Thurston or the Tablet lately as I don't need coins or swords. I'll give it a try, but like I said, these are all once or twice a day collections, so it will be very time consuming to collect all the tusks, magic, etc. needed for the quests.

I've done the following resources with no success (in the hope that this would be a simple locket in tall grass scenario).
I've chopped Tall Grass, Ferns, Small Logs, Plants in a Log, Iron Rich Rocks.
i've collected from mushrooms, mushroom circles and red mushroom circles.
i've collected from all flowers.
I've collected from my wells and ponds.
I've collected from my apple, orange and lemon trees.
i've chopped down single plot trees (yellow acer, aspen, crab apple trres), but do not have any 4-plot trees immediately available to test.

When my energy recharges again, I'll check out some of the other items I haven't listed, but would definitely appreciate if anyone else would be willing to find some possible Dire Boar triggers beyond the known building triggers (like crops).

dalechristel
03-28-14, 11:02 AM
My guess on the fish is that the swampy pond is set at about a 15% drop rate for each kind of "new" fish. Meaning you will get one about 30% of the time. (I've never gotten one of each on a single collection, but imagine this would be possible) The regular ponds are probably set at about a 2.5% drop rate for each kind of new fish, meaning you will get one about 5% of the time. I've gotten most of mine from the swampy pond, but have gotten a few from regular ponds. (with many, many more tries)
As for the boars, I'm hoping that maybe harvesting cabbage plants will trigger them, since this is an item that is needed for the adventure. I planted a few up yesterday that will be ready soon, so I'm hoping to see a few boars show up when I harvest?? (fingers crossed)

The horns and clubs goal comes after the food one. Someone posted that any collected before goal in book will not count towards it.

The fish take MANY MANY MANY collections to get. The catfish seem to be the toughest to get - everyone knows they are nocturnal, so you won't find many/any during the day :p

I agree with Queenzod, sorry but the rate may be same but events that trigger spawn are not. I've gotten at least 4 fang beasts, 3 skunks pines and 3 trolls today.. But zero dire boars.. I eventually gave up and bought two boar traps to progress to next level.

I've spent hundreds in energy since placing the swamp with no DB's. None, nada, zero. Getting the usual FB, trolls and skunks but no DB. can't even go on first adventure do to missing pieces.

Perhaps TL has adjusted the drop rate to make the quest last two weeks? I realize they say they don't tailor drop or spawn rates but I'm not dumb! Perhaps they need to loosen up just a bit to keep us coming back to the game and achieve something every now and then.

Droprate on boars is the same as the droprate for trolls, skunkupines, and fangbeasts (it's all identical).

Those of you having trouble finding boars, try these:
- Sparkling Mine
- Character's houses (like Ivy's Hut and Thurston's Fort)
- Special buildings (like the Tablet of Tabernum and the Magic Garden)
- Iron Rich Rock

You chased the boars off pretty well last week, but they won't stay deceived for long - expect boars to spawn from more places soon!

Wow that's a lot of gems. I'm not going to buy the trap it doesn't give you what you need. I always end up with fur and other useless resources. I have enough for one adventure that's about it. Hopefully TL does something to help us with the boar situation.

Boars tend to spawn most often for me when I collect from ponds.

Droprate on boars is the same as the droprate for trolls, skunkupines, and fangbeasts (it's all identical).

Thanks Glimmergate, however the issue is not with drop rate, it's with options to drop. Thing is as we tend to collect a lot of crops regularly, other creatures end up spawning faster. Because options for spawning of boars are limited to the above mentioned ones, and they have a longer cycle to replicate, as there are fewer resources to collect from, the wait for boars is very painful.

If you can add a couple of crops that don't spawn anything to the cycle or flowers that are not configured to skunkupines then things might get back on track with boars and folks won't find it so painful to spawn them :)

Tried all those places,still haven't seen a single boar,tried them each more than a few times,this really is turning me off the game,catfish are slowly coming along,but the butter(?) fish is very hard to come by in my queendom.not asking foe easy,that's boring,but after using up 11 Ali's and pinkys as soon as available,and still nothing,kinda gets to you

Also note that Glimmergate said they could be found in iron rich rock. I have smashed two and not spawned yet. I'm out of energy now, I may try some more later.

Those are not working for me over the course of many days and many collections. It doesn't help to try to placate people when what you're saying does not match the experience of not getting the DB. I'm not talking about the 3 that are needed to start. I'm talking about the DOZENS that are needed to get the items to continue with the quest. Those of us who followed the course of last weeks goal line and placed the pond without knowing we shouldn't have are in a tough spot right now. If we shouldn't have placed the swamp the quest line shouldn't have been written like it was. This is not right.

I'm obviously not quitting the game b/c I'm a moron and I don't have a life, but that's not gonna stop me from complaining enough on this forum to aggravate everyone until TL really addresses the issue.

Yes, seeing that had me skipping off to my queendom to smash a couple, 5 rocks smashed and no boars so far...

I haven't finished gathering the materials to complete the swamp pond. From what I'm reading here, once I do complete it, the boars won't show up as often. Perhaps I will continue with it incomplete until I can gather enough tusks before the boars disappear. Right now they appear quite often. The way I did the math, we need 14 tusks. Anyone come up with a different number?

I was eager after reading the list and seeing the rock mentioned but now after your experience with smashing iron rich rocks, something really needs to be done since nothing is spawning boars anywhere near the rate as the other beasts. TL you really need to change the spawn rate, especially on the buildings that are collected from once every 16-22 hours. Those should a guarantee spawn rate.

9 for 3 troll clubs & 3 for 3 sentry horns = 12 (or did I miss 2 somewhere?)

Ps...and then 5 at end, to give away = 17

You need 12 tusks to craft items for 1 adventure. You will need 3 pelts so at least 3 adventures if the pelts are a certain drop each time.

Thank you meme1098! I was wondering if we had to do more than one adventure.

And dumb me going around & collecting everything this morning, I collected the horn & club before I had the goal in my book. Talk about a head slapper!
Now I'm starting all over collecting those darn tusks and can't get a d@mn boar to spawn anywhere. Even if I do get 1, it's no guarantee I'll even get a tusk.

***Really TL this is really getting frustrating making everything in a quest ultra rare.***

I am only getting Trolls :-(
Character houses
Special Buildings
Iron Rich Rock
Wells and Ponds
Mushroom rings
I am getting frustrated and annoyed; only Trolls no Boars. I'll be darned if I'll wasted coins on two more traps
Yes, I have tried restarting

Just a thought here, lol... If nearly everything needed for nearly every quest or goal is "rare" or "very rare" ... Then 'rare' becomes the norm and there really is no such thing as "common" or "frequent", for "specialty" drops... is there?
Hence, being called specialty drops.
Lol Right??
(And yes, I coulda used more quotations in there if I really wanted to, lol)

Ps. What is everybody's rush, anyway? Did I miss the starter pistol for this race?? LOL

I'm not rushing toward a finish line since I'm not one to skip or buy items with gems to move along. I like being able to do the quests in no hurry but the spawn rate for boars is nearly nonexistent, not to mention the drops from them when you do get them.

When the collection items that spawn boars is once a day or so and not even guaranteed then something's wrong, especially when fang beasts, trolls & skunkupines are popping up all over the place.

STILL no boar after the first 3, give us a break! How are we going to do the adventure when the boars and fish are rarer than a darn diamond dragon?!
