Hey everyone! This week's update is the second half of the second anniversary celebration that started last week. It's time to head back to the Jousting Arena and fight a rainbow-colored array of monsters for the glory of Glimmerwood!

Also, for those of you who are stuck on last week's update, the drop rate on the Mystery Fragment for the quest Building a Mystery Opponent has been doubled.

The new questline will be available at 12:00 pm PDT and picks up right where last week's quests left off.

Have fun!

I collected from the jousting arena (after giving the food) but no skunkupine turned up. Now there's another 12-hr wait. I guess the skunkupine isn't guaranteed? Oh well, I was having fun while it lasted. More tomorrow (I hope).

Looking forward to it! Amost made an apple pie last night, but didn't-darn! In the oven now

Can't help but comment on the mystery fragment drop rate...after all the times CS reps have told us "we don't mess with drop rates" when skunkupines, fangbeasts, dire boars, or even trolls or any other "random" item became suddenly scarce once needed for a quest line! lol The truth WILL out! 😄

09-04-14, 01:08 PM
Earlier today, I thought to myself, "I should remember to NOT collect from the jousting arena when it is ready, because I'll likely need to for the second part of the anniversary quest coming out later today." Did I remember that when the arena was ready an hour before quest time? Of course not. lol. Well, I had also just used my last spicy feast and only had 1 Ivy's hot sauce ready, so it will take a while for me to get to the arena quest parts anyway. :p

And THANK YOU, devs, for making the third food item an apple pie not a sweet feast. I actually have a sweet feast ready, but I am very glad to be able to actually use it for an adventure. Those adventures yield the most awesome results. I even got a magic cement from one once which about made me fall out of my chair. :)

still no mystery fragment. 8 more hours until tries #25 and #26.
I have been a member for a while and a player for even longer. This is only the second time I've posted.

Have endured many random drop miseries and missed out on dragons, etc due to them. It's just not fun any more.
..........!...........!...........!
still no mystery fragment. 8 more hours to wait. then tries 27, 28.
I could gem my way out of this, I suppose, but it's now a matter of principle.
WHY don't they provide an alternative way of crafting the item when it's a random drop?????????

Well to be fair they what they've said is that that don't lower the drop rates, the drop rates don't change if you're low on an item etc. They have openly admitted to increasing the drop rate on a number of items :)

Many people (including myself) are still waiting, the good news is the devs have doubled the drop rate of the mystery fragment. I'll be crossing my fingers that you get it next time. Personally I'm not a fan of random drops either.

I like this update, but it's (for me) a sad thing that it AGAIN needs rat tails... I've got SO many quests going on that need rat tails, and I'm lucky if I get 1-2 rat tails a day, even with all the sources that should give it... Please TL, make the droprate go up, or don't make so many quests that require rat tails?

Realy, if I got an offer for 99 rat tails for 10 euro, I wouldn't wait a minute...

@Bexx, I think we're just on hold while people craft those dyed scarves. Without gems, it would take a minimum of three hours to complete step 4.

We don't lower droprates, and the droprates don't lower themselves - once we put a droprate out, it stays like it is.

However, if an item is too scarce, sometimes we do RAISE droprates. This tends to happen if it's blocking people from progressing too much, or if we've started to use an item much more than before. Let me know if this is a problem ;)

lol - I just read ahead to the next part of the Greselda quest line that I will reach tomorrow after my Sword of Light finishes - I will have to hit a 99 health "monster." I will be doing nothing but hitting monsters for weeks!

Question: the Greselda "monster" spawned by the Glimmergate at that point of the quest - does she create a 5x5 cloud where you can't collect anything, like typical monsters? And the same question about the tournament colorful monsters? I ask because my glimmergate and jousting arena happen to be fairly near each other, and near other buildings I like to collect from very regularly. If they will be putting each other and other buildings nearby out of commission, I have some rearranging to do. Please let me know, anyone who knows. Thanks.

Hey Z, evil Greselda is not so bad. She does create a small cloud tho. It says 99 hits but was more like 60 as she drops energys like most beasties. If you can, separate the g gate in a corner....and don't forget to not tap the jousting arena till after doing in evil G. You can't spawn another monster till she's gone

Oh, that's good news, thanks! I was ready to expand anyway, so I'll just hide her in a new corner until I finish beating her up. :p I'm so glad this Anniversary quest is not timed!

gunnysmum, that is a bummer. I actually just did that myself very recently. Was trying to get the glimmergate to spawn glimmer golems and not understanding why it wasn't working. And a particularly sneaky dire boar hiding away in a corner was at fault. :eek:

Thanks to Castle Story team for an interesting update. I'm amusing myself making fashionable statement scarves while waiting for fertilizer drops for Sister, Sister.

If you read the back of it in your inventory, it says something about being used in quests.
Lol yeah, I know...and I thought the mystery fragment would be used in THIS quest...but it never is. Or did I miss the step where we give it to someone to make the purple golem? All I've seen posted is that we visit Old Thomas to fetch the mystery OPPONENT so I assume that leaves the mystery fragment in our inventory ...?

Ps. and the growth potion...?

Hmm, maybe so. Somehow I thought the anniversary quest was just a two-parter.
TL, can you please confirm if there's a part 3 or does this quest line end with resting at the tavern???

Edit: I have updated the information regarding steps 6-7 that came through last night though.

I thought we gave the growth potion and the fragment to Thomas in part 1 so he could make the mystery opponent.

fluffybutter007
09-05-14, 09:27 AM
In part 1, Old Thomas adds the growth potion to the mystery fragment, to grow the purple golem I assume. We actually end up giving Old Thomas the growth potion, but there is no option to "give" the mystery fragment (only the option to "mine"). Guess that's why it's still in your inventory.

And now that I think about it, we're growing a golem just to beat it? Where's the golem rights advocates? No wonder why this game is rated 13+! O.o lol

Many people (including myself) are still waiting, the good news is the devs have doubled the drop rate of the mystery fragment. I'll be crossing my fingers that you get it next time. Personally I'm not a fan of random drops either.

Wow. This is really a lot of energy and resources for rather limited rewards. It's kind of funny that we only get 5 gems for fighting a 90-health golem. If I wanted to do the reverse and use gems to buy energy, it would cost 50 gems for 30 energy or 150 gems to get enough energy to defeat the golem. It just doesn't make much sense, especially for players who are still actively completing storyline quests.

I can't believe it. I was in the process of fighting the Blue Dire Boar and even started to combat him(got him down to about 24 or so). THen the game cut out for a second and a regular troll was put in its place. Now I have to wait another 12 hours to maybe getting the Blue Dire Boar again. Is there a glitch somewhere?

It is a little of a letdown isn't it? Lol I'm not saying we should get a new building as a reward or anything, but it would have been neat if the devs had us upgrade the jousting arena and it changed design or something. (Kind of revisit what we did during the 1st anniversary).

In other news, I'm still waiting on my mystery fragment. I still have a long ways to go before I finish this goal line. Lol

It definitely seems more beast and arena related, maybe it could be something related to one of those, but we'll get another part of the storyline later on?

EDIT - nevermind, I just read Dabag's dialogue ...and there isn't a reason; it's just an exhibition. Still don't know the point though lol... We fight beasts & hand out purple scarves to the crowd, just to show we can fight beasts in celebration of our anniversary?... Um, hold on, surely I missed something. Lol

I just had a similar thing happen! Make sure you have BOTH the reinforced armor and sword, my armor DISAPPEARED overnight!!!! I know I built it because I only had one Magic Forge available yesterday (had a dragon cooking on the other one) so I cooked the armor first and the sword overnight. This morning clicked on the arena and NOTHING. First thing I checked (again) was to see if any monsters had spawned while I wasn't looking...nothing. So, check inventory and NO armor. So, built an armor, gemmed the arena, clicked on it and NOTHING!!!!

Update on my step 6 (above): checked EVERY corner of my kingdom looking for a hidden beast that keeps me from getting the Red Troll.....not ONE to be seen (checked three times). Gem up the Lvl 3 Jousting Arena, click on it and NOTHING again. Already did step 4 and have one each Reinforced Armor and Reinforced sword.........Oh yeah, also restarted the game twice. Has ANYBODY had this happen?

For Step 7, do I visit old Thomas FIRST then craft the Faerie Elixir (since it activates when collected) or do I need to collect the Elixir RIGHT BEFORE I visit Old Thomas?
When I got to that point I couldn't see the red troll either, but I did have the funny patch you get when you have a monster. I had to carefully tap around till I found it, but it remained invisible all the time. Weird but at least it got done.

09-06-14, 01:15 PM
Grumble. I had made an extra enhanced sword and armor, or whatever it was called, and while it took my resources and 2-hrs of magic forge time, it didn't give me the extra things. When I checked it said 1/99 so assumed you could make extras. Has anyone else had this problem?

Purple Scorpion is correct, you just finished the second to last goal. All you have left is to visit the tavern.

09-06-14, 08:34 PM
I may be the only one disappointed by this Second Anniversary Celebration, but all I got out of this was repetitive motion injury to my index finger from tapping 90 times in a row to off the purple monster.

Two weeks worth of updates for this? Did I miss something? I looked all over and I have nothing to show for this except having to max out my purple dye again.

Okay, is this TL's way of telling us we have come to the end of the game? I am seriously getting close to having stash of 99 little fairies in Mason jars. Did we ever figure out what happened with that fairy thing bit a lot of stuff to store in out inventory? The Troll story was going hot for guns when we built Kaz first a house then a Castle then he left and we never heard from him again. Anyone else find that a strange way to write a character out of a game? Then Belladonna and Sister, Sister which I am not going to send in my last Inscription and lose my Quest Book to sit and have nothing happen for a month. The Pyre thing didn't even have one artifact that involved motion, one of the small artistic details that makes the Kingdoms so interesting with bubbling barrels by the Potion hut, and the lovely fountain, to name two of many if you look closely. But now not only do we build a tent but it drops nothing of value after eighteen days of promises of something big. We got something, not sure exactly what it was but it was big in size only and I had no place for it in my kingdom, with it having no meaning. Then when there is the Second Anniversary of my favorite game and at the end of two weeks I have not even some useless item to remember it by taking up space in my inventory.

Where are we in this story anyway? I never figured out what happened with the fairies, but it was obviously not resolved because those of us who have been here a while still have many jars full of fairies. Our Troll areas that we were encouraged to build for Kaz were built and abandoned. More and more Kingdoms I see are maxed at level 50. The story and art with the unexpectedly inventive twists and little extras seen nowhere else that make this such an awesome game have been steadily deteriorating and while I have been looking, I haven't seen them here lately either.

Has this game peaked and we are at the end of the Story? There have been no letters from Agnes lately, Old Thomas only comes out as an afterthought like he did for this anniversary, and there was such a good chance to make us at least lol with the set up with Ivy and the yellow Skunkie, and there was nothing but a little bit of Ivy talking to herself? Did TL really fire the people who created this game? I was just kidding when I said that before, but did they?

TL, can you level with us about where this game is headed? The last month has been been nowhere, and the last two weeks, where there was an opportunity for a real celebration of a truly great game being here for two years, there wasn't even a card to show for it.

Sorry, I am feeling so disappointed in what could have been really memorable, and it is forgotten already. Do half of us even remember the name of the purple monster? I don't.

Sad TL, Sad.

I STILL have not gotten the Mystery Fragment from either of my 2 -level 5 mines...what is up with that? After reading many of the comments here, defiantly not going to use 50 gems to skip. Oh well....not even bothering to get frustrated anymore...I am really not in the mood to battle anymore beast...thanks TL for the, umm..."fun" tournament that because of your insane random drop rates I can't even participate in.

Finally got that fragment today (Monday morning 9/8)...on to triggering the practice beast. *sighs*.

Just want to say after reading the 3 pages after this post. That people complain because they hope TL read these post and correct the issues. I am, what? 10 days into a 2 week timed event and just now getting a mystery fragment. I have level 5 mines and collect from them when they are ready...so ya I think I have a right to be frustrated with it. My point is because of the random drop rate on that fragment I will not complete the quest even tho I will try...its in my nature. But I wont speed up anything because all the comments saying there not anything special at the end...

A bit late for you, but perhaps useful for others. I did Thomas's house first and then waited with the elixir until my arena was ready so I had the extra 20 energy for battling the monster.

So, I was all ready with an energy boost ready in the Exchange, my pink alicorns were waiting collection, I had a +10 energy crate... and the purple golem took way less than my maximum 40 energy :confused: It must have dropped loads of energy during the fight and each hit must have knocked 2 off the 99 total.

Which they did post in advance , it would be a slow summer for update because a lot of there stuff was going to take vacations,.. People be patient !!!!!

Thank you. That is very useful information. Too late for me but I just did not have the courage. So far I have used about 30 energy to get the golem from 90 down to 26. Luckily he looses up to 3 power points in one strike and gives back energy in a generous way. He should be done with in the next few hours. And then I can go and relax at the tavern :)

Would be nice if you could continue to use the reinforced armor & sword after the quest but I'm betting they revert back to normal at the end and we're back to losing 2-4 energy on the regular dire boars.

Buttercup;960864']Hey everyone! This week's update is the second half of the second anniversary celebration that started last week. It's time to head back to the Jousting Arena and fight a rainbow-colored array of monsters for the glory of Glimmerwood!

Also, for those of you who are stuck on last week's update, the drop rate on the Mystery Fragment for the quest Building a Mystery Opponent has been doubled.

The new questline will be available at 12:00 pm PDT and picks up right where last week's quests left off.

Have fun!

I've been playing regularly all week and no skuncipine drops needed for quest. Super triple disappointed with this goal so far.

I Agree! I'm just enjoying the game. I don't know how long it takes to get these quests and goals put together for us but I'm sure it takes a lot longer than it does for us to have the fun of doing them. It's kind of like cooking a huge dinner that took hours (and sometimes days or weeks when you count in the planning and shopping for it) to prepare and then everyone scarfs down the food and is pushing away from the table in 15 to 20 minutes leaving nothing but a pile of dishes to do and complaining they didn't like what was served.

If we didn't have any quests and goals being presented to us, the game would get boring. For those disappointed because they think the grand finale didn't have enough fireworks (I personally think it was fine).....We can't expect a huge chrismas dinner every time. Sometimes we need to be happy with a nice, enjoyable meal which, in turn, will make us appreciate when a nice big celebratory meal does come along. If we have it everytime, that also would get redundant and boring.

Just curious, what level are you on?

Have you played the game from beginning until you have to wait every week to get a Quest Book? Have you completed all of the quests but the new ones as they come up? Are you having to make up your own quests?

Because if not, if you are still playing when there are constant things to do and look forward to you, then you are playing the best game ever made! You are playing the game where there still are plot twists and turns and yes, you probably don't get what those of us who have been sitting at the end of the story with nothing adding on, waiting week after week and getting nothing compared to the majority of the game. You are right, you have nothing at all to complain about. You are getting dinner every evening. If the what has turned into a twice monthly update doesn't have much to say for it, no big deal to you because you are in the middle of exciting quests where a complicated or ahead of the story where you are might confuse you, but you want to be included in the update so it can be marginal, you don't care much because you are concentrating on the really fun part of the game, the one I and many of us finished months ago. But take away all the fall back stuff when you finish hitting a purple thing 90 times and you get oooh 5 gems. Those who get a glimmerbit notice if they need glimmerbits, but what if you are done with the glimmerbits? They don't show in your inventory if you are maxed on things.

If you are done, and you have run out of self quests, and sending an adventure to recycle eggs and milk are no longer fun because because you have 99 golden eggs, then you will see what I am talking about. When you know there will never be enough new

There are those of us who have played to the end of this game. I was in heaven playing this game when in was following two or three main quests plus the update. This game rocked! It still does for those playing at those levels. If I was still playing those levels I might be making remarks like yours and I probably did at that time.

Sorry, but for a large and growing number of us, (I can tell a bit because I have about 600 neighbors, and more and more are sitting at the upper Level now and I have neighbors at all Levels. i think I have enough to have a representative sample. There are more than a handful, in other words. I just started playing this year, so it is how much experience, not how long a person has played, to get to Level 50), for a growing number of us we have hit the end.

You say If we didn't have any quests and goals being presented to us, the game would get boring.

This is my point exactly. This game used to be wonderful, interesting, and I would schedule my appointments around what I was doing here. I have been done for a long time. Quite a few of us have, because I remember feeling like you did when I still had all those quests in my book. So what if this week's is not mind boggling. I had two or three others which were.

I would suggest you actually finish playing the game. Then have big build up after big build up, and have nothing happen. Week after week, month after month. When in the beginning things were happening! When you come in after the game has been going on for two years and you have challenge after challenge and are still griping because you need a golden nugget. Wait until you start getting the black flags saying you can hold no more golden nuggets. Those of us you are bashing now have been where you are. This game is undoubtedly the most awesome game I ever played. But that game ran out of steam months ago. Those who are still playing it have plenty to look forward to and believe me it is awesome, up until it suddenly stops. Then there are a few dribbles, and you have already played those while you were playing the fun stuff, so it will stop more dramatically for those following me than it has for me.

Finish walking in my shoes before you start bashing me. And I hate to tell you, but the rules of the forum do not say that we can only say happy things to keep you satisfied. Any more than it says you have to agree with me, it doesn't say I have to agree with you.

If I may suggest starting a thread labeled "Saying only Happy Things about Castle Story!" I am sure that would be allowed and plenty of players would love it.

Chances are you are playing the game during it's golden era. And it was and is GOLDEN if that is where you are now!

This was and until around the beginning of the summer, was by far the best game app out there. It still is the best in my opinion if you haven't reached the end. But TL, go back before the neon era, write in a bang up ending, and put up a big THE END sign.

Then use TL's awesome creative minds and start a Castle Story 2. But be honest and tell us when this one has run out of steam. Don't kill what should go down in game history as an all time Great Game Classic by letting it dribble away like this.

This is just sad, and those who still have to open the Glimmergate, go on the Blythewood adventure, or engage in the Troll Wars, don't be telling me that there are plenty of great things coming up, because if you haven't been there as I and most others have you are right. I have been there. It would be no skin off your nose were TL to end this game because they have obviously run out of story, because there is still plenty of story for you to play! And I agree it is awesome! What was there was great. But there is no more. Not for me and many others at my Level although I have a few neighbors at Level 50 who have not run out of quests and are still playing and enjoying the challenges.

Please TL, if there is no more, admit it, end it with fireworks and neon glitter if that's what floats your boat. But let this be what it is destined to be, a Classic Game. It is that good! Or it was. Don't take it off as an app, because nothing compares to this game. But either keep up with the story and keep the quality there, or end it gracefully so in years to come Castle Story will be the game they put up as a Classic, because nothing contemporary touches it.

But please don't let it go from five stars to one star because it started out great but died badly. End it at five stars and keep it a Classic!

The only reason I am still playing now is because I enjoy my neighbors and I enjoy my kingdom. I no longer enjoy the game because the game came to an end with no notice. But I can't call what I am doing now actually playing, as much as communicating with my friends.

Start a new one by the Glimmergate and have us step through a portal to the Golden Lighthouse down south, and have CS 2 Take of on an Island/Maritime theme. Anything but just leaving those of us who have run out of things to do the least interesting update possible where there is nothing to show for it. I don't recall ever having two weeks since I started playing where there was absolutely nothing new to show for a Celebration! Zero? Sad.

Am I the only one who noticed that a bunch of old animals and items were added under features this week and labeled 'NEW'? Alicorns and farm animals are not new to players who are at Level 50.

It is on topic TL to ask for an explanation why this Second Anniversary Event was such a non event, and why the game has apparently ended without an appropriate send off, or at least notice to those of us who have run to the end. I have spent thousands of dollars playing this game and I have to say to me it was worth it. For those still actually playing who have quests and things are still happening, I say spend your money because it is worth it. But if the game is done, let me know so I can hang around to chat with my friends which I will until you turn out the lights, but be honest and admit it. Is this game finished, TL?

By the way QZ, although we rarely agree, I doubt I will ever put you on my ignore list because while we may not agree, you have a most awesome sense of humor, and I respect your opinions no matter if they are rarely the same as mine. You are a respectful player and do not attack the person if you disagree with the opinion. QZ you rock!

It lacks the design aspect to be that. I used to play a similar game where the design possibilities were limitless... (Drifts off in happy reminiscence)

Anyway, I still think there is an anniversary surprise up the sleeve of TL, probably at the end of the two weeks. TL, don't let me down!!

I'm to the point of making my own goals. I'm maxing out my Potion Shop. I have over 29 million coins and over 28,000 xp's. This game is still my favorite, but what do you do with all that? I've lost my enthusiasm over the last few months with all these goals with nothing exciting to work towards. Even Sister, sister is done. The community event was fun in theory, but all we got were overgrown decorations. I guess I'm just bored.

If we didn't have any quests and goals being presented to us, the game would get boring. For those disappointed because they think the grand finale didn't have enough fireworks (I personally think it was fine).....We can't expect a huge chrismas dinner every time. Sometimes we need to be happy with a nice, enjoyable meal which, in turn, will make us appreciate when a nice big celebratory meal does come along. If we have it everytime, that also would get redundant and boring.

I agree to a point. For me it's the fact it's an anniversary I expected a song and dance. I'm fairly new to this game but already at level 36, so updates sometimes click on on Thursday evenings sometimes not. To me the pyre festival was more an anniversary spirit.

Wow, angry much? Apparently I hit a nerve. You were making some valid points up until you accused me of bashing you. First of all, I wasn't bashing you or anyone else. If you feel I was, then I suggest you take a look at yourself to see why you felt that way. It certainly wasn't intentional and you're the only one who can give someone the power to make you feel that way. I don't even notice who is posting what message.....I haven't even noticed the name attached to your post. I was just looking at the messages and lo and behold someone posted something positive for which I chose to show support. Before that, there was post after post of negativity and it seems most threads about a new quest or activity seems to turn into that eventually. Were you the only one posting all of those messages? If not, why take it so personally. If so, then shame of you. I felt bad for those who are trying to come up with new things for the players and getting nothing but bashed themselves. I was trying to show that some of us do enjoy the game. I was trying to balance some of the negativity. There is nothing wrong with placing a complaint, however there are constructive ways of doing that. I don't apologize for trying to look on the positive side of things or trying to make someone feel better who has been hearing only the negative side of things.

My opinion is my opinion. No approval needed, Sunshine. I wish you much more happiness than you apparently feel now. .....oh and this is my last message in response to any of your posts regarding this. The person I chose to show support for apparently knew what they were talking about in regards to getting bashed for posting something in a lighter vein.

Can we now get some lightness back....and get back on topic as someone earlier suggested?! This is a game after all. Games are meant to be enjoyable.






Just curious, what level are you on?

Have you played the game from beginning until you have to wait every week to get a Quest Book? Have you completed all of the quests but the new ones as they come up? Are you having to make up your own quests?

Because if not, if you are still playing when there are constant things to do and look forward to you, then you are playing the best game ever made! You are playing the game where there still are plot twists and turns and yes, you probably don't get what those of us who have been sitting at the end of the story with nothing adding on, waiting week after week and getting nothing compared to the majority of the game. You are right, you have nothing at all to complain about. You are getting dinner every evening. If the what has turned into a twice monthly update doesn't have much to say for it, no big deal to you because you are in the middle of exciting quests where a complicated or ahead of the story where you are might confuse you, but you want to be included in the update so it can be marginal, you don't care much because you are concentrating on the really fun part of the game, the one I and many of us finished months ago.

*nonpositive opinion alert* read at you own peril ;)

I agree with 55lee55. I am on lvl 36, thought about speeding things up with gems. But I decided not to, because then I would get to lvl 50 with nothing to do too quickly. I enjoy the gameplay tremendously, but the last 3 updates, with all the pounding of rocks and monsters with so-so rewards were rather tedious. (feeling deflated) Since I have paid for gems on multiple occasions, I feel I am a patron at a restaurant and can voice my opinion, even if it is not as positive as some would like it to be.
Speaking of that: could we be more tolerant of each other's opinions, we could just agree to disagree. But everybody should be able to speak up without repercussions. It took western civilization hundreds of years to get there, and what a great accomplishment that is!
Going to look for my rose colored glasses now, because I need them! :) ;)

Anyway, I still think there is an anniversary surprise up the sleeve of TL, probably at the end of the two weeks. TL, don't let me down!!

Have you hit the purple thing 90 times? Then gone to rest in the Tavern? That is the end.

I was let down by the five gems I got for hitting something that was never a part of the game before and likely never will be again, and my finger got sore from senseless violence against a monster who never even raided my strawberries. There is not even one useless decoration to commemorate the Second Anniversary. I was let down, and TL has made it clear that they no longer desire the monthly entertainment budget I was spending on this game. I am at the point in the game now where spending money gets me nothing above what those who play for free get. Apparently I have already bought anything of worth in the game and am currently maxing out on items that people complained about being hung up and stuck in spots for lack of one of this or that item.

Guess it depends on what you feel let down by. I waited and asked around then I came here and this seems to be it from reading the outline. Unless TL adds something not in the update release at the end of the two weeks, it seems that once you wear your finger out hitting the purple thing 90 times, you go put your feet up in the Tavern. I saw some mention of glimmerbits, but as I need no glimmerbits, they would not register for me. I suppose that if a few bits are dropped and someone is still working on Inscriptions for Sister, Sister, they may get more from this senseless act of violence besides a sore finger. Some seem to be thrilled by it. I am not.

I suppose I will do a Happy Dance now that my finger can recuperate so that those who insist on having everyone post happy things will be satisfied. I am making a hopeful assumption that I will not be required to beat up purple things who do me no harm and provide no competition but to stand there and be hit close to a hundred times for what reason was that again? I am assuming it will not be a requirement to repeat every for every future update.

Enjoy the exercise fellow players. At least I was asked to beat up a creation of Thomas, and not some quiet creature that has a family somewhere out in the Woods futilely waiting for it to return home. That is a positive note in all of this.

I am bothered that I am still getting jars with fairies trapped in them still dropping from random places in my kingdom after we went through all of that neon nonsense to appease some of the fairies. Does anyone know why I keep collecting these jars with captives who I would much prefer to have a party to open a hundred glass jars to release to the wild than to whack on a purple pillar that just stood there and grunted 90 times for a Second Anniversary?

I suppose I should be happy for those who enjoyed celebrating by exterminating differently colored animals than those we are used to dealing with in our kingdoms and I am likely the only one who finds this symbolism a bit disturbing. I know, elderly and overly sensitive to destroying what until we got to the purple thing were differently colored versions of common animals found in our kingdoms.

I just had a similar thing happen! Make sure you have BOTH the reinforced armor and sword, my armor DISAPPEARED overnight!!!! I know I built it because I only had one Magic Forge available yesterday (had a dragon cooking on the other one) so I cooked the armor first and the sword overnight. This morning clicked on the arena and NOTHING. First thing I checked (again) was to see if any monsters had spawned while I wasn't looking...nothing. So, check inventory and NO armor. So, built an armor, gemmed the arena, clicked on it and NOTHING!!!!
Me too. Lost both. Collected both. Started other items. Went to goals to give both armor and sword and it shows 0 still.

Unfortunately this has become a regular situation since the last update a while back. I reported it here and was told the usual, visit neighbors, post on wall, force a sync blah blah blah. Which is kind of funny considering I've been playing this game for over a year and a half and understand syncing issues. This situation only started after the last update. Barely can make any meals any more because 80% + time I come back and my kitchen shows empty.

I'm a level 50 player, finished all quests, including Sister, Sister. I love CS, and I enjoy looking forward to where the story lines go. I did hope we would get to keep the upgraded sword after the event, but it's not that big a deal for me. I appreciate all the work it takes to create updates so often, and am happy we get so many. I understand we don't all feel the same about the game. I believe you have the right to say so, even if you play for free. I only wish we could try to be respectful of our community, Which includes the developers. Expressing disapproval is one thing. Some of the negativity just goes too far. I'm here to relax, play and have fun. The intensity of the anger and negativity is too much. It's a real bummer! The negativity feeds more negativity, and people start feeling attacked, or hurt, or offended. I've been there, when all the negativity has overwhelmed me. Lets apologize for words said in anger, in the heat of the moment. Let's all take a breath, and remember that this is a game, created by other humans with feelings and emotions. You can express disapproval of the direction the game is going without disparaging remarks about others.
It takes a while for feedback to filter thru to actual gameplay. I believe the developers when they say they are listening to feedback. If it takes 3 months for the process of putting storylines into play, I hope we aren't going to have 3 months of the same negativity on every CS thread. I find the CS developers to be remarkably attentive and accommodating. I've not seen any other game like that. It's a pretty precious thing. Lets not spoil it. Be respectful no matter what your message. Peace.

That is the end so far. If you'd read my previous posts you'll see I put forward the hypothesis that there will be a proper reward at the very end of the two weeks.

Unless, of course, you have a time machine and have travelled forward to Thursday... No? Thought not.

[QUOTE=silveryedges;961956]Folks, honestly. Why does almost every update thread have to be spoiled with posts about being discontent about the game in general. Why don't you just start a new thread and those who want to to read it can go there and do so. This is so off topic in my humble opinion. I have a very busy and stressy life and CS is a getaway to visit and have fun. This is spoiling it all. Isn't this thread about how people proceed through the 2nd part of the tournament and about advise how to do it in the best way?

I remember how we had to wait for updates and now that TL takes the trouble and provides them almost every week they aren't good enough? I am happy to find something to do in my quest book. Now bash me.


AMEN! So many bad attitudes, so little time!

Exactly

I'm a level 50 player, finished all quests, including Sister, Sister. I love CS, and I enjoy looking forward to where the story lines go. I did hope we would get to keep the upgraded sword after the event, but it's not that big a deal for me. I appreciate all the work it takes to create updates so often, and am happy we get so many. I understand we don't all feel the same about the game. I believe you have the right to say so, even if you play for free. I only wish we could try to be respectful of our community, Which includes the developers. Expressing disapproval is one thing. Some of the negativity just goes too far. I'm here to relax, play and have fun. The intensity of the anger and negativity is too much. It's a real bummer! The negativity feeds more negativity, and people start feeling attacked, or hurt, or offended. I've been there, when all the negativity has overwhelmed me. Lets apologize for words said in anger, in the heat of the moment. Let's all take a breath, and remember that this is a game, created by other humans with feelings and emotions. You can express disapproval of the direction the game is going without disparaging remarks about others.
It takes a while for feedback to filter thru to actual gameplay. I believe the developers when they say they are listening to feedback. If it takes 3 months for the process of putting storylines into play, I hope we aren't going to have 3 months of the same negativity on every CS thread. I find the CS developers to be remarkably attentive and accommodating. I've not seen any other game like that. It's a pretty precious thing. Lets not spoil it. Be respectful no matter what your message. Peace.

Sorry, my block quoting isn't functioning properly.

I have now gone twice to my jousting arena to meet the green fang beast and nothing happened. Has anyone else experienced this? It's 12 hours for it to reup, so it's really frustrating.

To help lighten the mood...

Am I the only one who thinks the red troll is just ADORABLE? lol

I wanna see him again for Halloween and Valentine's! He looks like a lil devil & is too cute with his pink horns lol. ... In fact, I'd like to see Kaz bring back his new red troll friend with him soon (is Kaz's return the next update perhaps?) and BOTH of them walking around my queendom. OMG, that'd be awesome lol

...and I don't wanna leave out Mr. Purple!! *He* could be the new source of random glimmer bits we've been wanting -- would be so cool if he appeared from collecting from the glimmerdust troves or harvesting glimmerbulbs (y'know, purple stuff!) ...but NOT requiring 90 whacks every time, OMG. lol.
I'm keeping him for a lil while longer cuz I can wait on the 5 gems & resting at the tavern, don't need stuff from the other beasties right now so he keeps them at bay...& besides, he's fun to watch & Cupperbutt (my fire faerie) has taken a liking to him. LOL!

Just wanted to say I enjoyed the anniversary jousting. It always cracks me up the way our ruler changes from wide-eyed innocence to fierceness between each sword strike. I know some we're expecting some big prize. I like the small prizes and the journey. Thanks, TL.

OR are those maybe, just maybe...manboobs. Lol

Good point. And I'd go for 90 whacks to Mr. Purple G if he were made to randomly appear from collections of purple stuff like glimmerdust troves, glimmerbulbs, rocket larkspur & the like (even Violet, my purple cow!) ...IF (& only if lol) glimmer bits dropped every 3-5 whacks!
That'd actually be pretty cool. *thumbs up*

Nada niente Nothing.totally disappointing I thought we were getting a skunkupine like last year I can't believe all we got was coins and xp. SERIOUSLY THAT WAS A LETDOWN!!!!!!ahhhh at Level 50 just what we need like 1500 coins and xp to get us nowhere. I have never been so disappointed by this game what were u guys thinking. Woop woop happy 2nd. ANNIVERSARY excuse any typos they happen when I'm frustrated:(

Just letting you know, the game isn't ending for anyone who is worried it is. We will have more updates coming up. So no worries! Also to clear up any confusion, this was the second half to the anniversary event, so there won't be third part to this event this week.

You need to have no other monsters in your kingdom. Did you check around everywhere?

I was going to add to something I said in my last post in this thread but I can't seem to find it. It was about this quest, and there was something I wanted to clarify in my post about this topic, but now for the life of me I can't find it to do so. The thread must be moving faster than I thought. Anyway, I can't find what I wrote before to quote the part I wanted to expound on a bit, so I will just say that I totally get why some people were really disappointed to get no new building, or even upgrade to the jousting arena or decoration from this event, and also why some were very entertained by it. Why some's overall opinion was positive and some negative, and I for one appreciate being able to read how others feel about it, good and bad, and empathize with them. My overall opinion is that I was very entertained by it and didn't mind not getting a new building, but since it was an "anniversary" quest, celebrating a long amount of time, it seemed to me there it ought to have resulted in something new to put in the kingdoms/queendoms of those who have been around since the last anniversary to celebrate it. Sorry, guys - I hope the next quest is good for you. And Kaz marries the red troll when he comes back. :p

lol, maybe Thurston tell a wrong story about the trolls, cuz he loose against a female troll called Kazumi ( shortform Kaz ) which steal his pants and armor ( if i remember right ), a male troll would slay him and dont make him nude...and that shouldnt happened to the greatest knight ever...
...but i dont know whats the deal between Thurston and Kaz(umi), that she lie about her gender:rolleyes:

I used to get lots of glimmer shards, glimmer fragments, but when the Sister Sister Quest started my drop rate for these items decreased 99%, how come?

Though this was a tad anticlimactic, it was still fun and didn't use a ton of really valuable resources...and I always love getting gems as a reward! I'm excited for updates to come, especially holiday ones, and I'm very curious to find out what's in the bottom right corner of the board...thanks for all the hard work TL! Love the game.

I like this update, but it's (for me) a sad thing that it AGAIN needs rat tails... I've got SO many quests going on that need rat tails, and I'm lucky if I get 1-2 rat tails a day, even with all the sources that should give it... Please TL, make the droprate go up, or don't make so many quests that require rat tails?

Realy, if I got an offer for 99 rat tails for 10 euro, I wouldn't wait a minute...
Oh I get skunkupines... They're just the bobtail variety! Lol Never a tail when I need them.

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 :)

^^ From the Pyre Festival thread. They don't lower droprates. *shrug* Might just seem like it's lower.

I feel a bit jipped that since I didn't have my arena upgraded that I couldn't do the anniversary event!! I guess I'll miss the next one too if I don't upgrade it... I had just only got it when this new quest came up so I didn't have time... I hope TL can give us a little more warning before putting out exclusive events so we can dash into emergency mode and get prepared!!!! please...

We sometimes get 2 hours notice, I was in a similar position to you, however I hadn't bought it yet, I managed to get it fully upgraded and starting the 'new' quest by the Sunday. If Kaz returns or the faerie quest that has been hinted at comes along in the next few weeks I won't be ready but it will come along when I am, I'm ok with that, I suppose we all get to that point at some point, where some quests come along on Thursdays some don't.

I enjoyed the anniversary event, some people think that every quest line/event has to be huge, some times it's nice to enjoy a quest that doesn't have a time limit, totally got frustrated with the lack of skunkupines and Fangbeast appearing, but even that eventually passed since there was no clock ticking.
I personally liked having different monsters to fight, even it it was different colours of the same monsters. If anything i would hope that TL would consider increasing the different types of monsters to fight with different rewards for defeating said monster, even a quest that you go and fight a particular monster that is attacking your Kingdom, and then reward you with a "treasure trove" from the defeated monsters lair. At the very least give us some thing to fight apart from dire boars, there really getting annoying to the extent people are bringing back there "PET" monsters in some dark corner of their Kingdom so they don't fight them any more.

take my earlier comment back... I did get around to finishing my FIRST anniversary questline and immediately the questline for the second anniversary event pops up. now I don't know if I want to go into it for no reward, as well as those beasts taking my hearts rating away. I'd like to know... DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE THIS QUEST TO GO ON TO A FUTURE GOAL ANY TIME SOON? Or do I have a year to complete it until the third event???

It's probably a safe assumption to wait. Nothing so far has impacted it. And knowing what's in store, you could probably finish it quickly if you need to. I don't think I would leave it a year, but if you do, that's a risk you'll have to weigh up yourself. But then I'm compulsive and have to start and finish my CS goals as quickly as possible! :) :)
