Hey everyone, this week's update is the first part of a two week storyline. Castle Story is turning two! Bring out your Jousting Arenas because we're throwing a tournament to celebrate.

As always, the new questline will be available at 12:00 PDT. You must have completed the first Castle Anniversary questline in order to see this one! (If you have a LV 3 Jousting Arena, you're probably good to go).

Enjoy!

Well I've already levelled up to 2 and should have 3 done in around 6 hours but got to brew Ivy's potion not sure how long that's going to take as Ivy's hut won't be ready for another 2 hours.

Good luck PurpleScorpion. You'll get there. There'll probably be other things to do before the arena is utilized anyway.

You are not far behind PurpleScorpion. You will be able to catch up fast.The jousting arena takes another 12 hours to get collected from after being taking out of storage anyway. I know because I have just taken out mine.

Going onto a cruise tomorrow but hopefully I will be able to play anyway :)

Good luck and lots of fun everyone!

And happy anniversary CS !!!

25 fertilizer for the growth potion. Best stock up and hold off on sister, sister for a while.

Anaboe
08-28-14, 12:54 PM
Was busy with Plants for Belladonna, which requires an almost unlimited amount of fertilizer and the Faerie Flower bed, which also requires 30 fertilizer - and I only have 23... So those 2 quests will be halted for the next week I guess.

Quick question about skunkupines: I very rarely get a skunkupine these days. What do I need to do for them to appear?

Sugarcane and wheat are usually good. Occasionally they pop out of the flowers when you're looking for petals.

I got tired of waiting for the ole skunkupines, during the festival, so I used my SKUNKUPINE trap. Worked like a charm!

Thanks, TL and congrats on a great year! Looking forward to many more great adventures next year!

I had to get a ton of skunkupine tails for a storyline recently. I had the best luck with repeatedly checking:

Pepe le Skunkupine (tame skunkupine from an old Ivy quest)
Red flowering bush (bought around Valentine's day to get red petals; it often spawns a love-cupine, not sure if those will count)
Wheat, corn, tomato, and sugar crops

One more thing: The 2nd goal tells us to adventure into the wilderness & visit Old Thomas.
Do we only get credit for the adventure upon returning from the quest, or did I miss out by not being in the goal & clicking "Go"???

We normally get the credit on the return, from what I recall.

Something else is going on. She would have the goals in her book (to check the arena) if she had the update. Don't think you should spend anymore gems until you have a goal pertaining to this update.

Yay! Happy anniversary :D

I received 18 energy, 1 gem, 2 earth wisps and a sword from the adventure.
The adventure disappeared afterwards, so it's not permanent.
I like the new reward screen, did anyone get it from regular adventures?

meme1098

After returning from the Wilderness Adventure, it registered as completed on that part of the goal and disappeared. I no longer have it available.

I really like that new reward screen, too! So easy to see what kind of loot you got from an adventure. It hasn't become part of our "regular" adventures (at least for me.) I wish it would, though!

I got 6 iron ore, 5 energy, and 1 earth wisp from the new adventure. Not to complain, but it seems a bit paltry compared to shambalaya's, lol! ;) (JK)

I didn't even have that, my jousting arens was in my quest book since just before the Pyre Festival. My arens is now level 3 and I'm just waiting for the story to complete snd I should have the new update by tomorrow afternoon. It's perfectly possible.

Besides if you don't now, it'll happen when you do complete.

Wow... that's a lot... what lvl are your deep mines?

I'm still stuck at "Ask for Skunk Solvent", but I guess that will be finished tomorrow: I got 23 answers today (which is weird: I thought you could only get 20-21 a day?).

I realy like Ivy this time, I think she's about to dye a skunkupine, which is very charming :). So far I'm liking this update, more than the world event.

This is a most awesome celebration! Monsters! Monsters are what TL does best! Love pulling out my Jousting Arena again and Ivy volunteering to track down a yellow Skunkupine is genius! Plenty of things to do but nothing that can't be done. Perfect!

I took a look at the original 1st Anniversary quest. Yes, it's Thurston's. The last goal is called "Champion Thurston", where you dub him the champion of the jousting tournament. None of this makes sense (why you don't have this update.)

It looks like these are the bits people have questions on; I copied from the quest to upgrade arena to level 3 until the end of the questline. If all of these are complete, then the 2nd anniversary quests should show up.

Not reading the whole thread because I don't want everything to be known, like the suprise factor but I so dislike the ask Neighbor things. I have asked a ton of neighbors but only have 22 back. So frustrating that you're dependent on others playing and clicking to send to you. Don't like these kind. I don't mind visiting neighbors but waiting for them to respon not so much. And too many gems to skip.

I really like that new reward screen, too! So easy to see what kind of loot you got from an adventure. It hasn't become part of our "regular" adventures (at least for me.) I wish it would, though!

I got 6 iron ore, 5 energy, and 1 earth wisp from the new adventure. Not to complain, but it seems a bit paltry compared to shambalaya's, lol! ;) (JK)

Mine was similar to shambalaya's: energy, earth wisps, gem. Not sure what else.

You can only get that number of requests back per day. It's not that your neighbours aren't accepting the request.

It's the same for everyone.

When you send lots of requests at the same time the system gets stuck! I myself don't send more than 23 a day. Many have problems before when asking over 30 at once.

Hey everyone, this week's update is the first part of a two week storyline. Castle Story is turning two! Bring out your Jousting Arenas because we're throwing a tournament to celebrate.

As always, the new questline will be available at 12:00 PDT. You must have completed the first Castle Anniversary questline in order to see this one! (If you have a LV 3 Jousting Arena, you're probably good to go).

Enjoy!

@ DragonCon. Hope to get some playing time in anyway. :)

Awwwww! I have an eternal membership for DragonCon, but due to health issues I have not made the last 2. Good news is that I got to go to about 15 of them. Best Con ever!!!

I have been having major challenges with Skunkupines. I picked every flower in my garden as swiftly as I could at one go, then waited for my energy to completely refill and had a go at my garden plots and not a skunkupine to be had. :-(. Boars are giving me kittens too. I cannot finish the Troll quest because I cannot get Boar Pelts. I think I have a developmentally challenged game. :P

Hi Perry. You get the boar pelts from going to the Feral Lands adventure. As for skunkupines I found the best way is to plant wheat or corn and when you reap them a skunk will appear.

08-30-14, 07:59 AM
Was busy with Plants for Belladonna, which requires an almost unlimited amount of fertilizer and the Faerie Flower bed, which also requires 30 fertilizer - and I only have 23... So those 2 quests will be halted for the next week I guess.

Quick question about skunkupines: I very rarely get a skunkupine these days. What do I need to do for them to appear?wheat and sugarcane and corn is best.

letf8b
08-30-14, 08:03 AM
Of course,not a skunkupine or fang beast to be found
Right. But right b4 that quest they pop up everywhere;) try planting corn wheat and sugarcane maybe one will come a day. Lol

Here's something interesting! I sent out solvent request to all 180 of my neighbors at once at about 10:00 PM and got all 30 responses by 7:00 Am next morning. That looks like the daily limit on responses could be about 21 and resets at midnight (per previous observations) and the requests may have an expiration time (maybe 12 - 24 hours?). For once, my timing was good! Thanks neighbors!

08-30-14, 08:23 AM
Every request I sent to my neighbours I got in one day! So no limit this time, I thought that I one day rest. But the deep mining is more challenging. I have two but not one got the thing I needed. So I have to wait seven hours to give it another try. So tonight at 12 o'clock European time I look if I have got it in my deep mine. Hope I stay awake!

Like I said - timing :)

I've got the standard 22 responses back from my request at around 6am GMT although I was able to send a second request at about 2pm. Whilst the first request was before the day reset, the responses must all have been after.

For the step needing skunkupines I found corn works better than wheat in attracting them. It took me 4 times at the deep mine to get the rare piece.

I just did my 4th deep mine collection, and nothing. Is anyone else stuck here? Or is this just one of those normal suck-it-up random drop things?

I just did my 4th deep mine collection, and nothing. Is anyone else stuck here? Or is this just one of those normal suck-it-up random drop things?

I have finally finished this (rushing through as usual) and yes, this appears to be one of those random drop things. I admit that as expensive as it was, I bought the piece of whatever it is. The good news is that there is plenty of time to finish this while waiting for the random drop, unless you are remarkably unlucky or there is an unknown glitch. Remember, I just finished the whole week worth, so don't stress now.

Everything is doable as far as I can tell, and I haven't seen others stuck on this deep mine drop, and I doubt everyone bought their way past it, so while it seems to be a random drop, in other words you are lucky if you get it on your first deep mine collection, don't get upset at this point because it doesn't seem to be one of those ultra rare drops.

My admittedly useless because I will be jumped on and beat up no matter what I say, but my recommendation is to chill and enjoy this one. (and plant wheat or corn and hold off on tending livestock until you get near the end when you will want skunkies and fang beasties to trip over then)

Castloninian
08-30-14, 11:51 AM
I've had no luck with two collections from my two deep mines. Better luck tomorrow I hope. In the meantime I've been enjoying making some extra rope, yellow potion and growing potion. Hoping they will be useful one day.

Yea...midnight Pacific time is reset time for Team Lava games. So if your in Europe you could conceivably get all yours in your day since the game resets during your day.

I'm in the Central time zone and 2 hrs ahead of Pacific so my day is a lot closer to TLs day and only got back 20 the first day of requests (forgot & sent Stormies request with all the others instead of waiting til the 20 came in). Then I sent out more the 2nd day and got the rest. So if your day overlaps when TLs games reset, then in your day you could get a lot more than 20 during your day..


I was able to collect the mystery fragment on my fourth trip to a level 5 deep mine.

Oh boy, so a bit of a wait on that part of the quest. Just hit it this morning so I'll try not to be disappointed the first few collections.

2. Does it say have/give ice cream and lemonade or do we need to make new?
Thanx :)

Me too! I was pleasantly surprised. Then when it came time to hunt monsters, it took only one harvest of sugar to get my first skunkupine. I am currently sitting at 2 skunkupines and 2 fangbeasts and waiting.

Have you finished the "Champion Thurston" quest at the end of the Jousting Arena questline? If you don't know for sure, list off the goals in your goal book and I'll cross-check with the goal thread (link at bottom of post #2) and see if that's the issue.

Anyone have any ideas on how to get skunkupines? I have been harvesting wheat, sugar cane, corn, mushrooms, flowers...nothing. Is there any sure fire way other than a skunkupine trap, which is the same cost as just skipping the item....

In the same boat. Before I found the fragment fang beasts galore. Now they are hiding. Got 4 skunkupine a with wheat, now again in hiding. It is only Monday though :)

I didn't like this event, for it doesn't give anything as a reward. I don't care if it's a decoration or a flower or something, but it simply gives nothing... Last year it was a jousting arena, which gives swords and armour and gold, now it's nothing... It's a bit dissapointing.

Hey everyone, this week's update is the first part of a two week storyline.


1st part of two week storyline...I'm thinking (hoping) the reward will come at the end :)

meme1098
09-01-14, 03:24 PM
Hope a reward comes after the 2nd part too but at the rate I'm going (the darn mystery fragment from the deep mine is just not dropping), it'll be next month before I can even start it. It most probably requires the first part be completed before the 2nd part shows up.

I have 2 games and I got the fragment on my first collection for the first game. And the second game? Nothing..... However it helps knowing I'm not alone!

I wanted to check and hoping someone in the know will answer. Since this part isnt timed. Even if we take a few weeks to finish it will we still be able to get next weeks update after we do? Or do we have to finish this by Thursday (would think not but like to check!)

Finally got the mystery fragment on collection #16 (2 mines x 8 collections). I know it wasn't a time quest...but the randomness of it, and the fact that most seemed to get theirs in 3 or 4 rounds of collections (or less) made it a little frustrating. I kept wondering if there was something wrong with my game. For any of you still out there waiting on one, hang in there! I've got my fingers (& toes) crossed for you!!

With no timer, I would think you could finish whenever...I came along a few months after 1st anniversary and the jousting arena was just folded in with the Thurston line. I guess the 'two weeks' is just a timeline for deployment and not really a timer. Just a thought...I'm not in the know :)

I still don't have a mystery fragment... Not that it even matters. I can't get enough fertalizer to make the growth potion! I've been trying to grow those evil dark plants for everyone! My poor cows & sheep are getting tired of their high fiber diet! Lol

we are at day 5 since update and 21 pages with "i get no fragment" ...:mad:
there is nothing at the end of part 1 and if there is nothing superduper at the end of part 2 ...anyway...
maybe the mystery fragment is a dropratetwin of burning amber :rolleyes:

And on my next collection I finally struck lucky :)

Now, please can someone remind me what spawns Fangbeasts? I've got the skunkupines cracked but can't remember which crop makes the fangbeasts appear.

No, not strawberries (dire boar) and indeed not tomatoes (skunk).
Try the animals: cows and chickens mainly, but also farmer house, and I believe the stable and hatchery as well, but don't know for sure.

I constantly get fangbeasts ever other tap around the farm items but when I need them to spawn for a quest ... Well ... you know ... it's like they go into the witness protection program.

But --- I'm still trying to locate that darn mystery fragment. It's a mystery for sure, why it doesn't show up. Hate going down in those deep, dark mines. A little claustrophobic.

09-02-14, 06:47 AM
Yes meme I feel your pain. I have 2 deep mines I have checked every 8 hrs since we started. It's Tues am here and still no fragment. Why do the CS/TL gods of random gifts hate me?

I've had three tries on two mines (six total) and nada. This had better not be another random drop mess.

I have two mines, level 4 and level 5. Four tries and nothing yet.

DrP4ever: man that really stinks! I fell victim to a gem trap yesterday...accidentally tapped a building twice. But luckily it was "only" like 8 gems. To lose 50 that way is really unfair!
CS/TL: players have been BEGGING for a fix to gem traps for months and months! We are happy to spend gems on intentional purchases...must you steal them from us this way? A simple "Are you sure you want to use these gems?" message is all that's needed. Please listen on this one! What happened to DrP4ever is simply not right.

Got the mystery fragment on my first (or second go)! Holding off on collecting from the deep mine paid off :D I'm not sure if it was the first or second but somehow I've still got one mystery fragment in my inventory even after giving one to the quest goal :confused:

Seriously!! I came here to see if I blinked & missed the ending/reward. Kind of a let down after all that work :(

Well, after countless tries, I finally got that darn mystery fragment. My body needs a long, long rest though after pounding so many rocks in the deep mines over the last 6 days. Keep giving it your all guys. It will eventually pay off.
Now my fangbeasts & skunkupines have gone missing, of course, because I need them to spawn.:D
