How Community Events Work)

Community events have two parts to them. The first is prizes you earn for yourself. The second is prizes that are earned as a community - everyone who is doing the event contributes once you hit 650 sunstones.

In this community event you need to collect sunstones. This can be done by collecting from mines, monsters, mythical creatures, rocks, workshop, pyre tent, adventures. The sunstones won't appear in your inventory. They'll appear as a counter next to the sun icon on the right hand side of the screen. Click the icon to view your (and the community's) progress.



The newest adventures do NOT classify as distant lands and will not drop sun stones

Search the Ancient Vault, Hunt Roaming Bandits and Explore Dark Caves all dropped from 5 to 15 stones.
Traverse the Desert Sands consistently dropped over 20 stones
Feral Lands Adventure and Envoy to the Plume Hive did NOT dropped any after at least 2 tries

Dragons and Manticore obviously dropped Sunstones, I have gotten over 6 by a single dragon

Info from Devs



We don't mess with droprates like that. Monster droprate is exactly the same as it has been for nearly 2 years - about 1 in 25 chance of getting a spawn :)



The current plan is that the Pyre Tent won't drop anything after the event is over, since it's used only for the duration of the event.

For those who are asking, Braziers are ~33% droprate.



Yeah, looks like that 1% counter is broken.. the yellow bar is accurate, though, so you can use that as a guide. Can't believe you guys are moving so quickly.

Is anything else not working? (Just got in, trying to backread through a bunch of pages). Currently working on getting Sun Stones added to the Plume Hive adventure, the Iron Rich Rock, and the Lovecupine, hoping these will be out in the next couple days.

edit: 8/22/14

With this new update, the percentage on the Community Prize progress has been fixed, no longer stuck at 1%. Also, if you're on an iPod/iPhone, once you update, you will see your icon for this event at the right location which is at the top right of the screen. :)

Update in order to continue playing this game. Considering the latest version (in addition to it's ridiculous, 3year old adapted icon) is nearly unplayable because of bugs. I think not. Unless we can keep the old version, I'll delete the game.

Sunstone can be crafted in the workshop, 5 stone, 2 jewels and 2 silver, takes 5 mins
Skunkupine dropped 1 sunstone.
Wonder if the drops are a random number of if skunkupines always give 1
2nd alicorn gave 7 stones, skunkupine gave 2 stones, so a random number each time
3rd skunkupine, 2 stones
dire boar dropped 2 stones

I think it says from the tent itself? Maybe a (rare) drop when you collect from it? It also looks as if one of the rewards includes a flag.

Very nice. I really like that pyre tent which fits beautifully into my fairy corner.

So let's all collect those sun stones so we can get the community prizes.

In order to prepare for the event I had used up most of my basic resources so will have to actually work for upgrading the tent. Well, this adds to the challenge so all good. Thanks for the event TL :)

Check your upper right corner of screen,( or down right corner also ) if you see a sun symbol it tells you how many you have :)

I couldn't turn around doing farm chores after 2 steps or so without a fangbeast showing up. Now it's like they all skipped town....lol.

Same here! Yesterday I was remarking to myself, after getting 2 monsters after tapping 2 sheep, that I was getting monsters all the time now. Today... I've gotten 2, but that is using like 60 energy ONLY on tapping things that could potentially produce a monster. It's always this way. They say they don't turn down the monster spawn rate ever, but I don't believe it. I even planted a bunch of the Talinum Auranticum flowers since they always draw a ton of skunkupines. I now have 26 orange petals for my efforts... but no more monsters for the quest. :/

ETA: Sir Piggy does not appear to drop Sunstones. :(

We don't mess with droprates like that. Monster droprate is exactly the same as it has been for nearly 2 years - about 1 in 25 chance of getting a spawn :)

The newest adventures do NOT classify as distant lands and will not drop sun stones

Search the Ancient Vault, Hunt Roaming Bandits and Explore Dark Caves all dropped from 5 to 15 stones.
Traverse the Desert Sands consistently dropped over 20 stones

Dragons and Manticore obviously dropped Sunstones, I have gotten over 6 by a single dragon

Well, then I guess my luck is just unbelievably bad (or there is some sort of in-game 1-100 luck dial I have stuck on like 2 for ALL luck related stuff in game). I get TONS of monsters when I don't want them, and hardy any when I do. EVERY. TIME. It's so stark a difference that yesterday I was sitting there in disbelief at the tons and tons of them that were spawning constantly. Click a sheep, spawn fangbeast. Kill fangbeast. Very next thing I do? Click a sheep, spawn a fangbeast. The monsters were so friggen prevalent before that that I kept a boar cornered in my kingdom for a week until I needed what he was on because they were popping up CONSTANTLY. Since that quest began? I hear crickets almost every time I collect anything that spawns monsters.

Thanks for the info. I'm disappointed that the plume hive adventure doesn't drop sun stones since it's the adventure I'm trying to do as often as possible. Have to weigh making progress on collecting the new faerie supplies versus collecting extra sun stones to earn prizes/decorations.

I bought 3 Rock outcropping and chopped them all, and all gave Sun Stones, so this is not limited to the first one and needn't be sold when we reach 19, obviously we need tons of those Sun stones :)

Bought the fourth one, and the good thing is we get silver and we could use the Coal to make jewels :)

My game was open and I was starting to say my goodbyes to neighbors when my battery died. Now I can't get back in, so CS is now deleted. I will not update, so this is it for me. Goodbye all! I will miss you all very much!!
I am speechless at this point. I was willing to live with bugs to keep the Castle icon. I have been forced to update to the Pink Poni. And what did I get? A Peptobismal pink tent on slime green grass that was clashed so badly no matter where I put it, that I had to unlock my last expansion in the north-east, so I could hide it behind Old Thomas house and trees.

I am NOT happy. If it weren't for the lovely artwork on the prizes to give me a tiny ray of hope, I would join Oliverrr11 and just delete CS. I have spent more on CS gems than I dare admit, but I will walk away from it all if the building artwork continues to have so little detail, clash with older buildings in style, and be so bad.

You have to wait for collection from the tent to get the flag to upgrade to next level .... mentioned somewhere further up in this thread. Level 2 maybe as far as you can go.

My upgrade shows only 1 flag needed for level 2. Will be able to collect from the tent in an hour. I'll upgrade then (if I get a flag-lol) & let you know if there's another one after that & how many flags are required if so.

It has dropped flags and stones both times, but there is not even an option to show me what I need to upgrade. I actually used some of my gems to speed it up and collect from it a few times, and I have 6 flags at this point. I'm thinking I should just contact support. I am seeing that the general opinion is that the thing is ugly, but I would still like to have it fully upgraded.

There one other post describing your same problem.
Do you have the Upgrade Tent to level 5 Goal ( Workshop Woes) in your Goals book?
If yes, maybe if you force close the game then restart it might show up ?

Do not worry, I am one of unlucky ones, but if you want to spawn the beasts, try to chop the Outcropping Rock, it gives you Sun stones + other materials to make them, and you get Dire Boars from them and they give Sun stones.
I just had a skunkupine while collecting sugar cane and it gave me. sun stone as well :)

No, you're not alone; no monsters, and definitely no diamond for me either. The tent is probably going to be slow,too. I did upgrade all the way,though, maybe that will help. Now I need more trees to hide it !!!! That thing will have to go in storage after the event for sure.

I usually spawn fangbeasts every other tap collecting from cows, chickens & the stable & hatchery but they seemed to have taken a hike from my Queendom. Also, boars were spawning every several taps harvesting chocolate, water, & collecting from mines. I have only 1 out of 5 so far this afternoon. Unlucky as can be today.

If the first item is 165 stones, anth the next is 450, will the first 160 stones count towards both (as in, i t rade for the first item, and this gets deducted or counted towards the second item, as in "you have colledted 160, now you only have 390 more to go?) or will it be independant, as in, i spend 165 and then have to get another new 450 more towards the next item?

Cuz in the first if its like a pool or collect items kind, i can see reaching 1200 stones alright, but if its additive, itd be 1200 for the third, plus 450 for the second, plus 160 for the first... And this makes it qu ite very much more challenging....

I usually spawn fangbeasts every other tap collecting from cows, chickens & the stable & hatchery but they seemed to have taken a hike from my Queendom. Also, boars were spawning every several taps harvesting chocolate, water, & collecting from mines. I have only 1 out of 5 so far this afternoon. Unlucky as can be today.

Yesterday, while collecting from my sheep herd, I managed to spawn not one but two fangbeasts. Keep in mind, I only have 4 sheep in my "herd" lol. That's a 50% spawn rate. None today. I noticed when I had to collect a gazillion petals for the last caravan that the ones that make yellow petals draw a LOT of skunkupines. So today I planted a bunch of them. No hits yet in many collections from them. Have made my way through a rock outcropping, iron-rich rock (which, if anyone didn't read this whole thread, does NOT drop ANY sun stones), and another half a big rock outcropping. Not one monster spawned from any of them.

Very early on, I got a skunkupine from chopping down a sap tree. I got a dire boar collecting from a library. And a dire boar in my strawberries. But it's been a while.

I looked at the counter ( Sun In the top right corner / under Storm 8 logo) found that the stones are added despite reaching 160 and collecting the first prize.And the green bar inside also !
So It must be accumulative, but this is simply a personal observation.
We need someone from TL or a Moderator to confirm whether it is or not.

I know that you cannot promise a new icon, but can you promise that you are doing everything you can? I ask b/c I have already deleted kingdom clash and dragon story in the last few days. Castle Story is next to be deleted if there is zero hope for a new icon/bug fixes.

It's accumulative if I'm not mistaken same like dragon story if you play the world events..if you collected 150 stones for the first item then you need to collect 300 stones more and not 450 stones

On the other hand was wondering which adventure they meant by adventure to faraway lands but saw the first edited post and 1st 4 advs gives stones..monsters now hardly appears..ughhh TL make it regular back again..I always get dire boars frequently but now is zero..

Search the Ancient Vault, Hunt Roaming Bandits and Explore Dark Caves all dropped from 5 to 15 stones.

Thank you so much for posting this!

Has anyone noticed much difference in the consistency of drops rates between these yet or do you think they're just random? I just used the last of my sweet feasts yesterday and all I have left are Mercury Feasts. I planted a bunch of peppers for spicy feasts right before I heard about the update so I'm debating whether to finish those after all or just go simple!

This Pyre Festival is the same thing that they do in DS. The item collected is counted in a special menu and the collection is cumulative. Once you hit certain personal milestones you get the predetermined prize. After hitting a particular number you get to join the "community" portion, where everyone's stones count toward the goal, while you're still working on your personal milestones. At that point once the community hits certain milestones the whole community gets those prizes.

I hope this helps those that may still be confused.

Is anyone else having problems upgrading their tent? I spent the 10 gems to upgrade to level 2, but I refuse to spend anymore to upgrade it further. It simply will NOT give me the option to upgrade.

I was only able to upgrade after collecting from it, can upgrade after each collection evidently. Can use gems to speed up collection time, up to you.

Loving the new update and lol-ing at the people complaining about the pink unicorn icon and deleting the game because of it... seriously it takes less than one second to tap on that icon to load the game screen. While I agree it looks super ugly (I think I'm gonna vomit rainbow if I stare at it for too long j/k), can't you just close your eyes and tap it and then look at the screen again?

Anyhow, enjoying the new event. Finally something to drain my constantly-overflowing stones and silvers, and giving me a reason to chop those space-hogging rock outcroppings (I still got 10 sitting around)! I'm currently low on jewels so that's what I'm crafting at the moment with my also-constantly-overflowing coals. So far I have got 189 sun stones and it's nice that the dragons are dropping the sun stones. Having 5 dragons certainly helps! I'm hopeful that I can get to 650 stones either by this weekend or early next week!

The flags are taking forever to drop though, I wish there is some way to craft them as well!

So far I haven't experienced any bugs for the upgraded app that people mentioned.

PS. I'm also happy that I finally got my first apple tree from the dark cave adventure after playing for 1+ year... got too many orange and lemon trees already.

Has anyone reached the realms of the community prizes yet? I am just wondering how fast the progress might be on that.

And has anyone sped up enough to know how many sun stones will be needed for the last individual item? I think Ivy called that the "fire faerie". I would not want to disappoint Ivy and not get her that statue. From my experience with the DS world events the last individual item will be doable but requires a lot of effort.

And whereas I am not too fond on the new icon either I do love the design of the tent and the fairy items. It's all very pop art and feels like walking through a certain section of the NY museum of modern art. Nice. And yes, I am aware I am pretty much alone with my opinion.

I've used a lot of gems to upgrade the tent to level 6, and to upgrade from lv.6 to lv.7 you need:
6 Fancy beams
20 Wool
40 Flame flags
10 Braziers

That would cost me another 250 gems, so I think I will stop using gems, and start collecting from the tent every 4 hours instead...

I don't really understand this. So we are just trying to obtain the special stones? I can't spawn a monster even after 120 energy doing things that always spawn them so don't know how I will move on. And why is the music playing when you sign in even though I have it muted. Not happy about that at all & hope it will be fixed.

As for the green slime, I don't care for it but I will keep playing. I just hide the buildings behind trees. Loved the old icon this one is horrible but I will just shove it to my last page so I never have to look at it.

Over 177 a day...? Doable..? Not for me, i'm afraid, and I'm quite sure for many not.

HOW did you get 195 in such a short time?
I play throughout the day, started right away yesterday, and have 89 stones so far. This is the first (world) event I'm able to play. I liked it at start, but seeing those enourmous numbers does let my courage sink in my shoes (as we say in the Netherlands).

I think the way to achieve this is to carefully use our limited energy on obtaining sunstones and leave most of everything else aside for the moment. I have only 99 sunstones by now but that number will increase once that tent will be upgraded. I have also stopped wasting my energy on looking for beast and continue chopping rock outcroppings instead. They provide materials required to craft sunstones at the workshop. Plus beasts will eventually pop up from that and provide more sunstones. Which is helpful.

(and I'll probably have no (faerie) angel looking out for me, cause no matter what's always said: until yesterday I could fill a zoo with all the beasts pestering me, but when the event started they hide in probably other kingdoms. As always. Despite.)

I've been crafting them, smashing rocks, collecting from mines, and when I collected from 4 dragons, I got about 23. I didn't even do an adventure that gave me stones today, nor kill any monsters past the 5 for that quest. As you upgrade the tent, it will produce more stones and remember that you'll be hitting goals along the way. Maybe you won't reach the last one, but you'll still get something.

It's not like I hated the new icon to death (I do have & enjoy playing My Little Pony along with my daughter).
It's just not representative of this game at all, and I'm going to miss the old glorious icon sooo much. I've even taken a screenshot of the icon and the opening title earlier, just in case. That's how much I'm going to miss it. Did the same for the valentine's version before I deleted it since I was unable to access it anymore.

Could you tell us more about the rewards? What quantities did you get of the goodies in the 2nd and 4th goals? And are items 3 and 5 just decorations?

To make yours bigger I click and hold the image then select copy. I then put it in this format (remove the space from the square bracket): http://forums.storm8.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=14782&d=1407456240

The way to do it woot that is to upload the image to a site like imgure or photobucket, copy the bb code and paste it in your post.

Thank you for the info! This will be so helpful!

Items that drop from advanced (lvl 3 or more) tent, they drop once every 5 tries if I had to give a rough estimated


I'm level 2 how can I get a brazier for upgrading to level 3? I'm assuming it drops at the 5th attempt?

I've used a lot of gems to upgrade the tent to level 6, and to upgrade from lv.6 to lv.7 you need:
6 Fancy beams
20 Wool
40 Flame flags
10 Braziers

That would cost me another 250 gems, so I think I will stop using gems, and start collecting from the tent every 4 hours instead...

Whoa that's a lot of flags and braziers!! I hope the drop rate increases dramatically for those items as the tent is upgraded. I've only collected once from my level 3 tent and I got 1 flag and no braziers.

I think the info on the first post made for level 6 is actually for level 7, cuz i have the following

I have collected from my mines, slaughtering beasts and the pyre test but none of my stones are registering. Is anyone else having this problem.

Yeah, @belbar22 me too! Sometimes it doesn't count the stones. In DS I always touch the count thing and then I go further. Perhaps we should do that at CS too!

Thanks for the info! You're the best!

I am still not sure how vigorously I want to participate in this event, mostly for decorations and a few gems. I really hate fighting dire boars over and over - such a huge energy drain - and I think I'd rather continue to focus on the plume hive adventures even if it doesn't drop sun stones. At least I can now make an informed decision.

I used my saved up skunkupine traps that I got from adventures to get my 5 beasts. I had to kill my pet Dire Boar "Cuddles" as well - and couldn't get another beast to spawn after that! But once I got the 5 from the goal, they are poppin up like popcorn again! Especially when I chopped rocks! Got the first prize last night, I think this will be doable. It seems like a lot at first, then you realize you are getting them for things you already do!
Good Luck Everyone! ;) Annie

I didn't get any stones from iron rich rocks and small rock pile.

I got 2 from small rockpile. It's random!

Just my input on this event:
LOVE LOVE the idea of community events. The ones in DS are awesome! This one not so much. The reason I say this because the prizes are just decorations that will prolly just end up in my inventory!!! So I'm just playing the game like I normally do and if I get them then I get them. I won't go out of my way to earn the sunstones. And it seems like a few people feel the same way as I do. I have 221 sunstones so far and will prolly get all that I need for all prizes without working at it.

Butttttt....if the final prize was a tinker camp type KITCHEN then I would be alllll over this!!!!!....as I'm sure everyone else would!!! Heck we'd prolly all be done now! Lol.
So I'm hoping Glimmergate reads this and considers an extra kitchen for the final prize for the next community event!!
Something to get us more excited about than decorations that will sit in storage...
