Looks like update is live. First step is to brew fairy potion


You do not need to update to 1.2.4 in order to see this update.

As long as you have quest No Place Like Home from the Plume Hive story completed, you should see this in your Kingdom Goals list.

Also in case anyone was confused about this, after crafting the Faerie Essence in the Potion Shop during "D.I.Y.", the option to craft this item will disappear from the Potion Shop, this isn't an issue. Thanks!

-Make 1 Faerie Essence
[Reward: 410 coins + 3 xp]

Faerie Essence:
5 Fey Crystals
5 Faerie Murmurs
5 Floral Glow

*Finishing step 2 gives you the ability to make Candy Bonbons in the kitchen (you don't actually get any as a reward).
*Items like candy bonbons will only appear as options when you're up to the relevant goal.


Glitch: I was making blue dye in my potion shop, the goal auto-triggered completed when I collected it. Don't have faerie essence in my inventory and have no way of making it now. Lame...

Glitch for me, too. I went to brew the floral grows and it completed then. No potion nor option to brew it.

Castloninian
09-18-14, 12:12 PM
It was 5 fey crystals, 5 faerie murmurs and 5 floral grow for the potion. I think I am making one at the moment but the game has moved beyond that step anyway. Making the bonbons now which take 4 hours (and you need 5, not sure if you get multiples when you collect).

I bet you are right. I have had a lvl 5 Faerie Respite for some time, but just planted my Blythewood sapling, too. Actually, I placed it. But need to wait for mythic essence #3 to finish brewing to actually build it.

I am sad I cannot do this new quest. :(

Started the fairie essence, next step popped up to give the beams & paste, and showed the rewards of the candies but then my game force closed on me. Finished the dialog and now I have to give the candies but they're not in my inventory to give.


Never mind you have to craft them in the kitchen:
Looks like I need to go craft sugar. Hate doing that with a purple passion!

Don't see Glimmergate or kooky on the forum so can someone else out there help us with this??????

My guess is that you'll need to have completed 7/31/14 update-Plume Hive before this goal will trigger.

It didn't give you the candies. It unlocked the recipe in your Kitchens. Scroll down a ways. I'm making two candies now and don't remember what you need, although you do need chocolate. They take 4 hours to make.

Wow! For the candies alone, you need 48 hours of kitchen time!

I'm curious how the rewards from this trade will compare to the rewards from the plume hive adventure. Both require a lot of the same materials - silver, jewels, sugar, cocoa, kitchen time. And I assume the tea cakes will need flour and even more sugar.

And I'm even more curious to discover what we will need all these faerie building supplies for. And whether there will be more expansions coming to provide room for new buidings. Very interesting!

There is no glitch. We can't make the faiery potion in the potion shop, hence the new building we are building, the faeiry workshop. That can contain the faiery magic.
My guess is that we will make essence, and other faiery stuff in the new workshop.

sunnygirl634
09-18-14, 01:09 PM
Not sure if it was supposed to remain in the Potion Shop, but after I collected the Faerie Essence from my shop, I can no longer craft it. Since the max is 99, I thought we would be able to make it more than once.

FYI--the back says "The distilled essence of fae magic; handle with care. Used for Crafting."

fluffybutter007
09-18-14, 01:11 PM
There must be a glitch because other players had the option to try making it in the potion shop. It's not holding me up any though, so it's just a minor inconvenience.

Maybe that's why its no longer in the Potion Shop. Maybe it gets moved to the new workshop.

That's more than likely it's purpose, but mamareader just had a problem trying to collect something else from the potion shop. Hoping crafting there is not a big problem now!

Additional info: I just collected the essence without a problem and it's now in my inventory.

Because it's too powerful according to the dialog & blew the roof off the place, that's why we're building the new building. I read the dialog pretty quickly too without comprehension, & I used to be a reading tutor/specialist. Haha

The faerie essence part of this is bugged. I collected floral glow from my greenhouse and got the completion message for faerie essence which is still brewing in my potion shop.

Edit: and subsequently when I collected from my potion shop I got a faerie essence in my inventory but no further messages because I still have not given the royal beams or builder's paste to repair the roof.

First post, but have been following the forum for maybe a year... First I'd like to thank all the players and mods who update with valuable information:) You guys are amazing!

Secondly I'm really excited about this update, so thank you team lava! However, everytime I see new things requiring sugar... it's really a lot of work to keep the kitchens busy every 15 minutes:( I would love to see some sort of kitchen upgrade, like in farm story, in order to que items, making the sugar-production a little more effective.

Third, I'd love to know whats needed for the teacakes in order to prepare:)

One of my neighbours just told me that in Faerie Workshop we (obviously) make faerie stuff:

1. Faerie Beam: 2 Wooden Beams + 1 Faerie Essence + 5 Glimmerbulb Seads

2. Faerie Block: 2 Stone Blocks + 1 Faerie Essence + 5 Glimmerdust

3. Faerie Paste: 2 Super Glue + 1 Faerie Essence + 3 Living Wood

4. Faerie Essence: 15 Murmurs + 5 Fey Crystals + 5 Floral Glow

Part of the dialog states crafting the faerie essence is too powerful for the potion shop & blows a hole in the roof. So you need to repair that.

Dabag should have the dialog up after awhile & you can see the story there.

I was max on faerie mummers, made two extracts and I have collects and recieved some faerie mummers back and right now setting on 74. So I'm confused if it only took 5 per extract then only 10 should be missing,,, There is lot more missing then 10

At the beginning post it says 5 faery mummers , But just saw it takes 15 per extract . That makes more since.

Love this update. Would also love to have more kitchens and the faerie bulb seeds raised from 50 to 99. I can't wait to see what we will be building with the faerie stuff. Also hoping when these new buildings are being built we get more expansions too. :). Thanks TL for the great updates and for listening to our requests and feed back. Enjoy.!

There's definitely a glitch then :( I opened my game, for the first time since the new update was implemented, collected my super glue from my potion shop and the first goal "completed" without it even starting in the fitst place. I have therefore never had the option to make the faerie essence at all, so am subsequently moving forward to the bonbons with no way of getting any essence. Will the option come back at some stage? What if I need the faerie essence to complete a goal (as it will assume I have one from the first goal) before the option to make them appears in the potion shop? Will I have to skip with gems?

PikaSquirrel
09-18-14, 02:56 PM
The issue of the first Goal, "D.I.Y.", automatically completing has been fixed. You should now be able to craft the Faerie Essence in that Goal. For players that did not get to craft this item due to the issue, you won't need it to craft the Faerie Workshop and it won't prevent you from moving on with the rest of the Goals. So please continue with the following Goals and you'll eventually get to craft the new Faerie Workshop! :)

If you're still experiencing the first Goal auto completing, please let us know right away. Thank you!

PikaSquirrel
09-18-14, 03:13 PM
Also in case anyone was confused about this, after crafting the Faerie Essence in the Potion Shop during "D.I.Y.", the option to craft this item will disappear from the Potion Shop, this isn't an issue. Thanks!

Also in case anyone was confused about this, after crafting the Faerie Essence in the Potion Shop during "D.I.Y.", the option to craft this item will disappear from the Potion Shop, this isn't an issue. Thanks!

That should explain why I don't have it then.

The issue of the first Goal, "D.I.Y.", automatically completing has been fixed. You should now be able to craft the Faerie Essence in that Goal. For players that did not get to craft this item due to the issue, you won't need it to craft the Faerie Workshop and it won't prevent you from moving on with the rest of the Goals. So please continue with the following Goals and you'll eventually get to craft the new Faerie Workshop! :)

If you're still experiencing the first Goal auto completing, please let us know right away. Thank you!

No, its not, I deleted my castle story app and downloaded the newest app from itunes, Its still happening as soon I collect from my potion shops.

I haven't got the faerie essence option even locked by goal in my potion shop either and my phone updates automatically. Hope they fix this by the time I get to the quest.

Looks like you need to complete a few more Goals. You need to finish the Plume Hive goals first. The last Goal of that story was "No Place Like Home". Once you complete that one, you'll see "D.I.Y.", which is the first Goal of this week's update.

When did you collect from the Potion Shop and which craft did you just finish and collect from?

I opened my game, received DYI quest, collected "Builder's Paste", completed quest before being able to craft the thing.

Normally I woulnt care about something like this but im the kind of person that likes to collect things, plus you said it was going to be fixed

I disconnected my internet so I woulnt get changes saved, tried again collecting from my kitchen, its not only my potion shop what triggers it

First post, but have been following the forum for maybe a year... First I'd like to thank all the players and mods who update with valuable information:) You guys are amazing!

Secondly I'm really excited about this update, so thank you team lava! However, everytime I see new things requiring sugar... it's really a lot of work to keep the kitchens busy every 15 minutes:( I would love to see some sort of kitchen upgrade, like in farm story, in order to que items, making the sugar-production a little more effective.

Third, I'd love to know whats needed for the teacakes in order to prepare:)

I really like the idea of the que for the kitchen. That would make things so much nicer! Great idea!!!

Er, if you know how to game the game it's possible without gems. The only limiting factor is how quickly you can accumulate fertilizer. I took a break from the whole game and only got back into it around August (when I would have to catchup on the questline before even getting this goal) and now I'm up to 7 or 8 inscriptions, while keeping a floating inventory of around 90 glimmer traps, 35 pitchers & 25 rafflesia :D

You will have a new trade with fairies in Royal Exchange and also from Envoy to Plume through Keep and Barracks. It's a good idea to go ahead and start doing this now so you will be ahead on these items. (The Plume)

One of my neighbours just told me that in Faerie Workshop we (obviously) make faerie stuff:

1. Faerie Beam: 2 Wooden Beams + 1 Faerie Essence + 5 Glimmerbulb Seads

2. Faerie Block: 2 Stone Blocks + 1 Faerie Essence + 5 Glimmerdust

3. Faerie Paste: 2 Super Glue + 1 Faerie Essence + 3 Living Wood

4. Faerie Essence: 15 Murmurs + 5 Fey Crystals + 5 Floral Glow

I do have 2 faerie paste left over from however we got them ages ago though. Wish I had more leftovers, 10 of each will take a while!

Floral Essence

Not to worry, you do not need it for any of the other quests in this goal chain.

* went to the Potion Shop saw I did not have enough Floral Glow to even start the Floral Essence - went to the greenhouse - had to collect the seed I had growing - and the next thing I knew - goal #1 did the auto-complete.
just to confirm it-went back to the Potion Shop & yup the listing was gone. Must be Faerie Magic!

I think what JustKay means by "gaming the game" has to do with the Fortune Teller Tent. But that does require you to spend a large number of gems for the Tent, so I wouldn't exactly call that doing it "without gems".

Looks like you need to complete a few more Goals. You need to finish the Plume Hive goals first. The last Goal of that story was "No Place Like Home". Once you complete that one, you'll see "D.I.Y.", which is the first Goal of this week's update.

Yes I am aware having read a few of the posts this morning thanks. When I wrote this I assumed it was after the faerie respite which I am close to completing and not much further down the line as it seems.

Depends on how much we would need. In case you have to do the fairy trade thing, then yes, it would be a long occupation for the kitchen (and notice also the base ingredients, such as sugar).

If it just a once-being trade (and then disappears) then it is no problem. So far no one reported the full questline (which is curious, usually in 1-2 hours some speed gemmers reports), so we dont know yet.

Why not ask for Glimmerbulbs instead of the shards? And the new option in the Royal Exchange, I think it shouldn't require cooking like the adventures! Why not make it like the other building items?! Get 10 or 20 of those Trade Tickets, in return of the Faerie building items?! TL is adding new things that require rare drop items, while we have lots of other items maxed out in our stock! :confused:

That's a bummer! :( Sorry you're not finished with Sinister Sister! Ooops meant Sister lol ;) I did with the help of the Fortune Teller Tent, choping logs like crazy...That helped me a lot!

It is frustrating that there's only the Glimmergate, Griselda's Castle ( when she feels Generous that is ) and very rarely the Maze Garden that give these rare drops of Shards and Glimmer fragments.


I think The Plume Hive is way better than the Exchange! 12 cakes/ bonbons, it is a ridiculous amount to ask for, let alone time consuming, and forget about the chocolate, sugar and other stuff needed! Nope not going there except for the goal after achieving the goal, I won't waste time/ energy on it, just like the Strawberry /Glimmerbulbs energy. Useless!

Good Luck Katbtodd hope TL will provide a new source for darn Shards/ fragments ;) But I am not holding my breath...

If you mean the faerie essence, here's pikasquirrels response to that:
Seems it was just part of the storyline causing the potion shop to explode. So no worries.:D



Even if you continue on without crafting the Faerie Essence, you'll still be able to continue on and craft the Faerie Workshop.

I might not be at this quest yet or will be for a while but it seems there is much more coming after this. Why build a workshop for the Faeries if it's not going to be used at a later date, seems like there may be more upgrades to buildings or at least more buildings. Then there is the potential drops of glimmer shards and fragments from future buildings. With that should come more expansions. Just a thought.

CS done. Waiting awhile on iOS 8 to see if weird things show up.

Hah... So you need the faerie essence to craft the paste!

*****Sunnygirl, are you able to craft the faerie essence in the potion shop now?????*****

Yes, I am. Sorry, here is the info.

Faerie Essence: 15 Faeries' Mummur, 5 Fey Crystal, 5 Floral Glow; Time: 1 hour

Yes, for 20 gems, I skipped it. Well worth it for me. That's a crazy amount needed for a trade and I had zero patience. I admit it. :)

It glitched for me. I didn't have the materials to make it, but when i collected armour from the forge, it completed and went onto giving ghe beams and paste. No potion in imventory and no option to make it now.same thing happened to me when I collected an allergy potion it completed I never even got a chance to see the potion or what we needed to make it and I have no option to make it now. Super bummer for us right?

Thank you. :) Thinking about skipping it, now I am there. But in the other hand, I am really curious what a trade should bring (how many items and so), so maybe I trade once just for curiosity. I have enough fairy things to build up both workshop when I get there.

The amount of time required from our kitchens is ridiculous. I realize this is only a game but make it fair and fun. I'm at a high enough level to where my workshops and potion shops aren't even needed anymore because I'm maxed out on wisp laterns and don't need materials to build anything. The kitchens and forge are used for quests. We really need another kitchen!

We should be able to upgrade our kitchens to make them faster also.

I also wish that I could just move ahead because I already have the 10 faerie beams, blocks, & paste dropped I had nothing to do, my inventory is full of everything so I have been doing lots of adventure to the plume hive. I guess there is no way to get the building until I do all the other stuff :mad:

Faerie beams, blocks, paste, & essence.

After you make the hairpins the next step is "The Value of Commerce."

You need to trade with the Faeries which requires 12 Bon Bons, 12 Tea Cakes and 6 Hair Pins. Time: 8 Hours

FYI--You can skip this part for only 20 gems.

I'm also curious to see how the drops from the adventure compare to the drops from the trade. I consistently have gotten 2 of the faerie building supplies from the adventure, along with maybe 9 energy, 1 or 2 gems, plus other items that weren't of great interest to me. But I do really need more trade tickets so I'm not prepared to rule out this trade completely!

09-19-14, 08:52 PM
I skipped the trade w/ gems (20), but don't remember if I got any supplies. I think not. The final building is 2x2, and is not animated. It does have a thin smear of green goo under it, which I assume is some kind of faerie leakage. It's not too visible, but it's there. You can make all faerie beams, blocks, pastes, and the lovely shiny deep blue faerie essence in the new building.

Git out yer glimmerdust troves! You're about to need tons of the stuff.

The kitchen issue has now been put on the critical list. There's no way to be able to cook all that stuff, plant and process crops, make flour and sugar and chocolate, bake cakes, and do the extra bits for adventures. My kitchens have been running 24/7 for 20 months now, and I'm still barely able to keep up. This really needs to be put ahead of other stuff, even new expansions.

But the number one thing that needs attention is...
Dumdumduh... Gem traps! ;)

Agreed. I'm still needing a few blocks and 1 beam for the first workshop. Even though I have an adventure due tomorrow morning I am hoping the trade will make up the difference.
On the adventure I get mostly 2 some rare times 3 items. So I'd put it at 2.25 items per adventure. I've been doing them tring to get the fire pit item. I'm hoping for double or triple level items from the trade. Tickets are nice but I'm almost at unlocking the last space so not a biggie for me any more.

The faerie workshop looks so much better than I expected from the preview. Reminds me of the smurfs but in a faerie way.
I second Ivy's wish for a faerie skunkhouse. I constantly need some rat tails but I am constantly maxed out on corn and wheat and don't need many petals either. Therefore a skunkhouse that gives a few rat tails per collection would be awesome. I would even spend gems for it.

Skipped the trade with 20 gems, and it was worth it! Of course I did not get any Faerie building items.but I don't care.
I will definitely not use this trade, I'd rather go on the Plume Hive adventure, I still need 4 pastes, 2 blocks and 2 beams to build the Faerie workshop, but I am not rushing to finish it, I will take my time.
This Faerie trade IMHO is really ridiculous ! :rolleyes:

09-20-14, 08:59 AM
I don't think there is a choice between doing the trade or the adventure. I just can't see how I can do that trade.

To make the Bon Bons and Teacakes (84hrs) both kitchens need to be cooking for 42 hours.

Considering there is no queue for the kitchen (!!!!!!!) and we have to make sugar & flour to start with (15 & 30 mins) I think it is safe to say that even the most active of players is going to need three full days to make this and even then they would need to make sure they they sit next to their alarm clock all day and collect items as soon as they are cooked.


My kitchens are running all the time just to keep up with the adventures from the barracks and the keep. Food is the one thing I don't have stockpiles of because I can't keep up.

If I took out 3 days just to make a trade, the adventures would stop.


On the other hand I have workshops, forges and a tinker camp which I don't really need to use and I have a gazillion of other resources which are stockpiled and I have no need for.


I just don't get the thinking behind this trade at all :confused:

Im actualy going to make the Trade for the quest instead of skipping just to see How much i get from it. But it will take me some days to prepare. At the moment i only have 2 hairpins and 5 teacakes so still missing most to even send trade ahead. That being Said i doubt i Will ever do this Trade again unless i get a Lot of Stuff from there. It is simply too expensive and timeconsuming.

Will be interesting to see what you get from the trade. I have decided to do it as well, so will see if we get the same.

I know 20 gems is a bargain to skip doing the trade, and that the trade requires excessive amounts of crafting, but like others I think I am still going to do it. I very, very rarely use gems to skip, preferring to play the game instead, and seeing as I have no other goals left I think I will just work my way through this. At least it gives me an extra day or two before I start twiddling my thumbs again.

Okay, everyone get your stones out to throw at me. I might say something unpopular. (usual, in other words)

I don't like this whole Fairy Storyline and never have.

I think my Ruler has been brainwashed because she is so far from doing or saying what I would I can't even pretend on this one. Why?

1. These building materials. They are available from five different places. One Adventure from the Castle, One Adventure from the Barracks, One Exchange, and Two Fairy Workshops (made from the materials that they are producing) We have never had a resource that we are guaranteed to get from five major sources and the storyline is pushing us to throw everything we have to get these things.
2. Fairies in Jars. I have 75 faries in jars imprisioned against their will and mine in my inventory and thier number keeps increasing. I don't like kissing up with sweets and neon and green slime to two supposed high ranking Faries who are not at all concerned about others of their species being stored in jars in my inventory.
3. What do Faries look like? The statues like the one in the Respite and the one that was a prize in the big todo we just had are vaguely human shaped. The "Faries" my Ruler is going out of her way and mine to please are Sparks on a sugar high. If my Ruler is ostensibly me, she would be questioning these inconsistancies, not tying up the kitchens to make bon bons for sparks.
4. What are we doing this for? The Sparks are certainly charging us a lot to buy/ship/manufacture fairy building materials that we are buying from them and making for them? I disagree with my Ruler who is falling all over herself to keep the Top Fairies happy and sweetened while she is collecting and storing the masses of Faries in Jars in the storage shed. This is jusp plain wrong! I would not agree to even speak to these Sparks unless they agreed to release the captives and feed them the sweets. Don't see that happening. Why are we putting all of our resources from every possible source into special fairy building materials that they seem to have in plenty if they can sell them to us and have us build workshops to build them in our kingdom as well, plus have us incarcerate their Jar Faries? Are we building a dungeon for them? If not, what are we doing putting so many resources into a group of Sparks who may not be who they purport to be? Have they shown us any identification? Have they done anything but fight with each other causing my Ruler to go out of her way to build and give them neon stuff and sweets? Do they fight with each other anywhere but in front of us?
5. I think we are being sugar scammed. Why are the statues not of sparks? Never since I began playing this game have I disagreed so completely with what my Ruler is doing. I say let the Jar Faries go first, then we need to get the same story at the same time from both Spark Faries, tell me why we are spending all of these resources on blocks, and then maybe I would go along with this. Or not. But there are too many questions and not enough answers.

I like the new buildings, but not what they do. We have not only been given the buildings, but the Exchange as well which assuming any of us send for it, it is unlikely that the number of supplies will be even slightly comparable to what we spend to send out for the Exchange. It never is. I think my Ruler has had the Fairy wool pulled over her eyes.

If there is a sensible explanation for the months of silliness we have endured with these Sparks, while continuing to imprison others of their kind in jars, please explain it to me so that it makes sense. I don't get happy feelings about these sweet siphoning Sparks. Is my Ruler the only one who has a too wide eyed silly smile on her face every time a Spark appears and agrees without question to whatever they ask for?

Why are Old Thomas, Sabina, Ivy, Thurston, and even Griselda not doing an Intervention? We give, give, give, and pay, pay, pay, and now we are building and importing building materials and no one is asking why?

Who are the Faries? The ones shown in the statues? Or are they the Sparks? Or both the same? And what is their plan for our Kingdom?

Am I the only one who doesn't like the way this thing is playing out? It isn't just the Exchange for me. The whole thing seems to be a scam. (Ducks behind hydrangea hedge)

I also noticed the differences in faerie images & continue to wonder what all these faerie building materials & essences we're crafting in their workshop are for. Will we be building a castle for these faeries in the near future?! I'm not sure I'm liking this faerie storyline to much either.

Queenzod
09-20-14, 12:08 PM
Agreed with the unsure about the faeries storyline comments! It's a fun thing on the sideline, but it now seems to be the main focus. Is this Faerie Castle story?

Also, the new essence, which is required to make all faerie beams, blocks and pastes, requires 5 fey crystals, which are a rare drop. So even when you get to making the new materials, there's a difficult to get item as a main ingredient. Meanwhile, all these other items that we have gobs of are just sitting around.

I don't think I understand what's going on now, or what the focus of the game is anymore.

Well I am sure it will be random drop, as all other trades. Thats why we have to compare who and what will get. Also, wonder if there would be surprises, such as the skunkupie in Belladonna trades. We will see in a few days.

55lee55, I agree with you that the faeries are a pretty suspicious bunch. Unlike you, however, I am happy to amass a supply of fairy prisoners. It would be great to have a whole army of fairy slaves, perhaps to travel through the glimmergate and subjugate the troll population. The clues are certainly present, that we are creating a dystopian kingdom. That second anniversary event, where we created mutant creatures solely for the pleasure of slaughtering them, was pretty disturbing. There is no suggestion that we eat our kill , so it's nothing but sport and bloodlust. So why not fairy slaves? Those fairies have a really messed-up caste system going on; would the glowing faeries even care about the jarred ones?

meme1098
09-20-14, 01:51 PM
Well, it'll be quite a long while before I even get to do the trade since the hairpins require 3 shards each (18 for just 1 trade) and the shard drop from my gate is like squeezing cider out of your Adam's apple.

I wouldn't go for slavery; but I get confused too as to the goal! Ok I get that we are storing up fairy beams and blocks; but to what end? A fairy castle? Now where would that go? I hate war if any kind and hope this is not a fairy takeover of some kind. I too will go lightly on the trading there would be no time for anything else, oh wait.... If this is a fairy take over why not prevent the creation of anything other than fairy gratuities? Sinister plot to destroy my kingdoms economy?

It will be a long wait if the only way to get the fairy building supplies is through the trade. I would like to finish sister sister. I would be nice to craft these. I might decide next week to gem skip this section. I'm not wild about two long goals needing the same product when there are plenty of other things to use.

Why can't it ever be goals requiring things we already have so we can use things up we already have instead of making more new things and have a pile of things we don't need just sitting around?!?!
I still need 9 inscriptions for the sister,sister. Not sure if I should finish that or this new goal. Either way it is a pain since it is so so so slow to get the shards

Hi wibbly, yep, I'm a fool and am going to do it also.

If anything, this new quest has cured my CS addiction. I'll still continue to play, gift, accept requests etc. However, I feel this one is becoming the last straw as such. To do the trade it is at least 3 days of cooking specifically for these requirements , taking into account work, sleep, normal real life stuff etc. anything else will be on the back burner (I wish it was the back burner was a 3rd kitchen). Even then we still don't know what "the trade" will drop.

My only other goal is of course sister sister, which now conflicts with this one due to shards.

As someone said on my wall, I could skip for 20 gems, however, I'm not doing that on principal. 1. The gem traps suck and 2. I don't buy gems anymore as I'm in the outside group that never gets offered gem sales.

In TLs defence, I do think it is a bit of a catch 22 for them. Long term players have been asking for longer goals for a while, well we've got them now. Lower levels can read ahead and stock up for what is coming and they will breeze through.

Sorry got off track. To sum up. Will continue on. What comes up, comes up, the game will flow in my own time now. Silver always for you.

Cheers all.

I agree the shards are hard to get. So I skipped the quest with 20 gems. And now I only sent my knight out to get me the things I need to build. That is cheaper and I can do the sister sister also. So they are going to be a long term goal. And I hope the my knight bring me some extras to!

Has anyone noticed the items drop rate from The plume hive adventure dropped (no pun intended)?
I sent my knights yesterday and what I got today is absolutely preposterous! 1Block,6 energy, and maybe one Jewel or silver, and 1 Faerie Bublbseed with some coins!
I used to get one block, one beam and paste as well, aside from higher energy rate and other stuff ! ( the Energy given back - from ALL adventures - is becoming really ridiculous considering the time/ energy spent to prepare for them! )
I agree with the others who posted about this Faerie storyline, not getting it and not liking it, My Jarred faeries are maxed out, one thing am thankful for is I finished Sinister Sister!

I am trying to make the teacakes and bonbons when I have time and my kitchen isn't busy with something else, it will take me maybe a month to cook them, or more, and I will try this trade once, just to see the revenue!
But still am not holding my breath about it!

Like someone before me posted, this last faerie addition has cured my CS addiction!

I used to be excited about the new updates, yet since this Faerie drama started, my interest dwindled, and now I am not even motivated to play...I visit, return gifts, go about my business as usual, but not with the same excitement, I feel like it became a chore, not fun at all :(

Why do I need to wait ages to get Fragments/ shards / Faerie Crystals while I have googobs of other stuff to be used?

I've got to say needing glimmer shards and fragments for this has quite frankly p*ssed me off. Excuse me for the quasi-french but this needs dealing with.

The people I know in real life playing this game are rubbing it in my face because they've had 99 or more of each glimmer because of the fortune telling 'bug' - and btw, is that REALLY hard to fix?? Until now I've kept quiet but fair's fair; no more of it. Life isn't fair but this is actually something that could have been fixed much earlier. It was pointed out on the forum almost immediately.

I've ground myself up to 15 of the Sister, Sister quest and will persist a little longer but this will get boring very quickly. 6 Hairpins and silly amount of baking required for those trades.

More people than ever seem despondent about this update. Take heed of that TL.

...Still this update has me bored and reluctant to even open my game for some reason. That's okay, it gives me more time for other games.

This is serious TL. Listen up please.

The comment that this Fairy storyline and the last update in particular has cured people of their CS addiction is widespread and not just in this thread. I have heard it repeatedly in game, on my wall and others. These exact words TL. Over and over. Neighbors who lived and slept in this game are saying they just don't see the point, are bored, love their friends but the game is so boring that they are considering just dropping in to check their walls, but maybe stop playing the game because it has lost their interest.

I thought I was the only one who had felt total apathy about this, my favorite game, and was trying with humor to evoke at least some response against my apathy. Didn't happen. People who normally come after me with a virtual troll club no matter what I say are suspiciously absent from commenting, or are disagreeing only about the disposition of jarred fairies, or worse, there seems to be an implied if not said outright "umm,yeah."

Pasionate dissagreement about a direction a game is going will have a few people quit on both sides, but when you have a hundred pages of rage and having to keep moderators in a thread 24/7 you know you are making money hand over fist and that even the most angry players will spend gems and await the next update with their alarm clocks set to see what happens next. Normally on Wednesday nights my neighbors remind each other to set their alarms. Not seeing that now TL. This game is in deep trouble.

The Faries have indeed brought an awful and most sinister demon into our kingdoms. They have brought Apathy. The storyline has finally sucked the last passion from this game and replaced it with apathy, the true killer of any game. If I was TL I would be releasing a new update today because by Thursday half of your players might be playing other games and even bringing back the icon won't keep players who have lost passion to play. Boredom kills games.

Leaving now to play other more interesting games. Hope I remember to come back. Yawn.

I think what's happening is that, in an effort to keep the game interesting, the designers have instead made it too complicated. The increasing difficulty of getting and making stuff is now boring people, not challenging them. If they were to let us have a third kitchen for example, that would help, b/c then there would be the logistics of figuring out the best way to use that kitchen. People who like this game like logistics. It's also important to feel like you're getting somewhere, not just making a Sisyphan effort day after day and getting nowhere.

Also, for me, a big part of this game was the fun/play to be had on the forum. That has changed. Lots of people have left in frustration, and with that piece gone, the slogging nature of these latest updates, the refusal to fix gem traps, I'm afraid the sparkle has gone out of the game for me.

I'm still playing, but I'm not puttng any more money into it, and I'm pretty much ignoring the new trade and some of the newer adventures. They just don't give the return I need for the effort.

You know how there's a honeymoon period to relationships? That's what's happening here. The 2 year honeymoon period is over, and now we see if there's a possibility of a long term relationship.

All these things are fixable, if the developers would really take an overview of what's happening. I hope they do.

09-21-14, 11:47 AM
I'm also a lil bit confused by the storyline even though I know faeries were one of the original inhabitants of Glimmerwood. And differences in the appearances of the faeries is just a bit odd --- statues look nothing like the sparkly faeries which look nothing like Queen what's-her-name (Ivinea??), so are they different species or races or what??.... but I'm glad to finally have something new to do and new to make & will continue to trust that this storyline is going somewhere (but c'mon, we SERIOUSLY need more kitchens or bakeries or tinker kitchen or SOMETHING to help meet the crazy cooking demands!!! - see my post on the Poll & Suggestion thread, lol)
I also thought we were gonna be given something soon to HELP with glimmer bits for Sister Sister, not something new to DEMAND more! (18 shards for a single faerie trade!? Ugh!)
...and I don't think players would get bored as quickly with this new development if everything didn't take ssooooooooooo dang loooooooong to do or make! TWELVE ea of tea cakes & bon-bons for the faerie trade? 4 hours for ONE bon-bon?? Five hours for a hairpin? SIXTEEEEEEN hours for fairie paste????? <-- that one is just nuts!
If the faeries' supplies are considered the equivalent of ornate supplies (I'm assuming as such since both ornate and faerie beams & blocks take 6 hours to craft), then why can I make magic cement in 12 hours, yet faerie paste takes 16 hrs?? *does not compute* lol

I'm more than a lil bit disappointed that no smoke rises from the faerie workshop's chimney when it's in production, like the chimneys do on the kitchen, potion shop & forge. I wouldn't even mind if the smoke was PINK (since it's obviously one of the designer's fave colors, lol) ...but why even HAVE the chimney on a crafting building if it's not animated when the building is crafting??? ...another *does not compute* lol

Ps. I realize lime green is also one of the designer's fave colors & is currently "fashionable fad" or whatever but I also thought we were recently reassured somewhere that we'd lose the green goo underneath everything. But sheesh, it looks like the faerie workshop got sneezed on, too. Yet another thing to semi-hide in order to disguise the troll snot. *le sigh*

I didn't know about the old log until I already got passed it..and I'm still working on sister sister,, I kept making the plum hive adventure and sent it out every time I could,,, so I was lucky to have the stuff to build the faeriework shops .I could not see me wasting all those blue shards on hair pins except the first two.. So needless to say I skipped the exchange part. I never skip any thing. After every body gets the work shop and start building. We are going to have trouble keeping our faerie mummers and fey crystal up ,so here we go running into another problem.

I got the tent months ago and just reached te fortune with the log-bug (after I skipped the previous fortune: Belladonna woudn't give me a Skunkupie after more than a dozen tries).

Tent works like this: you visit, and at random moments, after a visit, a fortune pops up. It's always related to something you can do in your kingdom, like "harvest wheat". But, because there's a fortune, you not only recieve wheat, but also some other goodie, for example, glimmerdust. Once you've collected the special item, the tent can give you a new fortune. And so on.

The "log-bug" is this: when you chop an old log, you not only get your normal items, but also glimmerfragments and/or glimmershards. If you chop the whole log, the fortune ends. Here's the catch: you can chop a log 3 times before it dissappeares. But, if you only chop it 2 times, and sell it, you can repeat that over and over again, for as long as you want.

Dunno how many fortunes you get before you get to this one, but it's gonna cost you weeks atleast, if not months.

Getting materials to build the fairie workshop through the exchange doesn't really seem worth it. I understand that they are trying to keep the game interesting and keep long term players in the game, but the amount of time and resources needed to build the workshop is a lot. And why is the only place you can make the materials needed for building the fairie workshop in it itself. They've built themselves a nice catch 22. I wonder if they're going to skip an update this Thursday since this goal takes up so much time.

Hope you will see this post KtwirlsAnnie.

The fortune teller tent doesn't give a fortune every time but every 2 or 3 collections. So fortunes could be 2 or 3 days apart if you religiously collect from it.

Hi Castle Story Gamers Community:

First, I'd like to thank the many people who always post the steps and crafting requirements for this quest/goals. It's really a great help. The mods do an excellent job in providing clarification and tips. The Castle Story gamers are great! I really enjoy the game, especially the tongue-in-check posts on the forum.
Regarding Faerie Workshop goal.

A few tips/ideas to share: I decided to skip the trade with faeries with gems (20) to build the workshop. I had done some quick calculations like others; and it seemed that the designers had an an idea that many players would opt to skip the trade and set the skip price for a reasonable gem count. I try to get gems on gem sales, doing adventures, and downloading/playing the new games. So, I feel that the price was very reasonable.

I had been doing the new Plum Hive adventure on a regular basis as soon as it was available because I assumed we would need the new building supplies for buildings that would be rolled out. As a result, I was able to build the faerie workshop right away. I may not build a second workshop (at least not right away), as I only intend to use it to craft the faerie essence. I'll continue to do the Plum Hive adventure and I think the drop rate of faerie blocks, beams, and paste should allow me to build up a good supply over time. From playing the game, it seems that the designers introduce new building materials as many players have acquired big supplies of ornate, enchanted, royal building materials over time. I think this is part of the game design...always keep the goals challenging. So, as a player I try to anticipate the quest lines, next set of goals and keep a good supply of food, plants, building supplies on hand. I also, stopped the Belladonna quest--sister, sister goal as many others did. I did craft a lot of inscriptions, but did not 'hand them in yet. I'll hold on to them for awhile because it seems that the reward of 10 gems for completing the sister, sister goal ends the quest line and doesn't lead to anything else. Right now, my approach is to craft the new building materials and continue to accumulate trade tickets. I think that the next expansions will require a lot more expansion permits.

Thanks again for all the tips and sharing information. Have fun!:cool:

Also note, that very soon the Faeries Murmur would be the bottle of the neck. Crafting one faerie essence takes 15 of them, and there are but a few sources of it. Since every faerie part needs one essence in crafting, my murmurs would deplete very soon.

Also note that faerie parts take a huge amount of time for crafting. The adventure still seems a faster way to get parts. Also, I am sure that in the very soon future there would be new faerie type buildings entering, with a probably high amount of faerie parts needs.

One more thing, to the faeries murmur situation: perhaps it is time to collect from faerie tea party. I was neglecting it, coz I was full on glimmer dusts, and it seemed not to drop anything else. But now I realized that sometimes it drops murmur, and with the 1 hour collecting time it is now the best source of it.

Thank you and all the other players for sharing details! I'm a long term player at level 50 with 273k XP, always reading here.

The reason why I'm posting for the first time now is that I would like to let the team know that there are happy long term players as well. :D I love the new challenge and I'm barely skipping any steps. I refuse to understand why people want to skip and finish tasks in 1-2 days. I'm also working on sister, sister, got 14 already and will get it done some day. Thank you team for making it a challenge for me!

Welcome here :) Just added you. I am also happy with the updates, and wonder what we would use our resources for soon. Until, I keep getting as much as I can. I have nothing else to do, no quest left to fulfil.

This is normally my approach the to game. I am very laid back about long term goals as I am in no rush but my objection to this update is the use of the kitchens to complete the goal.

The kitchens are the one resource where I cannot keep up with demand already in my kingdom and yet other resources like the workshops/forge/tinker camps sit idle a lot of the time.


There's seems to be a theme in the game that goals are aimed at what is limited or rare and what is plentiful just goes to waste. All I see in my kingdom is waste, waste, waste of resources and now I am sitting waiting for more glimmer shards with yet another long term goal aimed at one of the rarest drops.


I am just left thinking....what is point?


I don't mind putting in the effort but there has to be a point to it. When it makes no sense, it's very difficult to get the motivation to play the game.

In real life no kingdom/queendom or community would ever be able to operate under such conditions of wasting plentiful resources and being so dependent on what is scarce.


Every time I open the game to play I have to stop playing to deal with a dire boar. It drops tusks and feral magic both of which I am maxed out on. The best way to use up the tusks is to make troll clubs but that takes a lot of wood and yet again we have sawmills, like kitchens which just cannot keep up with the demands of the game. And even if I do make the clubs and send the knights out on an adventure they bring me back more of the tusks and feral magic that the boars are giving me all the time. Again, I am left thinking - what is the point?....and that is just one example of many where there is such imbalance and pointlessness in the game.

I think what's happening is that, in an effort to keep the game interesting, the designers have instead made it too complicated. The increasing difficulty of getting and making stuff is now boring people, not challenging them. If they were to let us have a third kitchen for example, that would help, b/c then there would be the logistics of figuring out the best way to use that kitchen. People who like this game like logistics. It's also important to feel like you're getting somewhere, not just making a Sisyphan effort day after day and getting nowhere.

Also, for me, a big part of this game was the fun/play to be had on the forum. That has changed. Lots of people have left in frustration, and with that piece gone, the slogging nature of these latest updates, the refusal to fix gem traps, I'm afraid the sparkle has gone out of the game for me.

I'm still playing, but I'm not puttng any more money into it, and I'm pretty much ignoring the new trade and some of the newer adventures. They just don't give the return I need for the effort.

You know how there's a honeymoon period to relationships? That's what's happening here. The 2 year honeymoon period is over, and now we see if there's a possibility of a long term relationship.

All these things are fixable, if the developers would really take an overview of what's happening. I hope they do.



You summed up my thoughts too on this and I think this is what they are intending to keep long term players interested in the game by giving them challenging goals but they way they set up the challenges by their over reliance on the resources we have the least in terms of materials and buildings, just doesn't work.

Considering the complaints from players about the poor rate of glimmer drops for the Sister Sister quest, I think it was a very bad move on their part to put glimmer shards into this update when their are countless other resources they could have chosen.

It may be from their business point of view that things are going well but given the feedback on this forum of late from many long term players, I don't think so and I really hope that they take a bit more thought about the players' perspective of the game and provide quests which encourage players rather than what feels like being blocked at your every move with the need for limited resources and buildings.

This thread is getting off topic of the current update. Please keep your posts on the Faerie Workshop quest.

Thanks!

There are already a few thread out where you can post your feedback on the over all game.
One is here. (http://forum.storm8.com/showthread.php?41826-Frustrated-Burned-Out-Bored&p=738172&viewfull=1#post738172)

I never got a chance to make the faerie potion in the potion shop. How do I get it back.

Once you make a Faerie Workshop you'll be able to make Faerie Essence.
