Hey everyone, this week's update is Castle Story's second World Event - this time, Halloween Themed!

Collect Candy Corn to earn the different Halloween prizes. You can get it by:

Harvesting from Corn
Going on the Trick or Treat Adventure
Crafting it in the Kitchen
Visiting your characters' Houses
The Jack o Lantern item, which you can find in BUILDINGS -> SPECIAL in the Market
and a few other places...


We hope you enjoy this event's prizes, including the new Spooky Wall set which is in my opinion our coolest wall yet!

We also heard your feedback from the last event and have some cool functional prizes to earn:

Cownt Dracula is a terrifying... cow? In addition to boosted Prime Cut and Hide drops, he also produces a variety of red items. Is that blood? (It's not.)

Collect from The Witch's Cauldron to earn a variety of different potion items - almost every single thing you can craft in the Potion Shop, you can get from the Cauldron. Ivy will be pleased!

Find Bones, Creep Tooth, and occasionally Living Wood at the Spooky Tree.

And last but not least, the absolutely stunning Haunted Hall, which you can build using the Fancy Chandelier from the event's 3rd Individual Prize. Aside from looking TOTALLY AWESOME, the Hall has a low chance to drop Earth Wisps, Wisp Lanterns, and Lumin Essence.

Have fun everyone. The event starts today at NOON PST and expires on 11/03 :)

Edit: This event is available for all players LV 15+. Please make sure you update to version 1.2.5!

And another candy corn from Old Thomas' house! And Thurston's fort! And Ivy' hut! - it seems that you can get them by trick-or-treating at people's houses.

Though I did not get any from Kaz's Abode, Greselda's Castle, the Troll Castle, the Manor, the Chateau or a farmhouse... maybe it's a rare drop from all houses, and maybe it's only those four.
I also did not have a cottage ready to test so it may or may not drop from there.

The "Bats in the Rafters" quest is to upgrade the Haunted Hall to Lv. 3 (Go on the Adventure for parts!)... but when you tap the haunted hall, it does not show what is required for the upgrades. Hopefully when my knights return from the adventure, the option to upgrade will appear.

FYI - the barracks does NOT have the Trick or Treat adventure. :(

To upgrade Haunted Hall to Level 2, you need:

10 parchment ghosts

So it looks like you'll need to bring back 10 of each paper decorations from your adventures.

Drop rates seems to be low on the corn, but at least it triggers skunkupines.

Is anyone else vastly amused by the fact that Sabina, Thurston, Old Thomas and Ivy give you candy when you knock on their doors, but the less-nice Greselda does not? LMAO!
And Kaz I guess doesn't give you any 'cause he's still not returned home. :(

I've been visiting a lot of neighbors, hoping that we can get candy corn in lieu of energy, coins or XP, but no luck there.

Everything about this event so far has been a hoot. I LOVE it!

ETA: I saw people mention getting candy corn from skunkupines and fangbeasts and want to add boars to that list.

Did anyone else buy the gates and fences? When I try to connect the gate with the fence it covers the lights on the gate. It overlaps kinda weird. Anyone whose having this trouble? Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I tried the tower things to it also covers one of the gate lights. If I don't put it that close then there's a gap between them. No big deal but any input would be helpful. :) thanks

Oh and I also can't get the path to rotate.

Side calculations...

To keep the kitchens running at full speed making candy corn .. .5 hr for the corn +.25 for the sugar = a cycle time of .75 hour requiring 5 cane and 25 corn. cane takes 4 hours to grow and corn 3 minutes so I need to farm about 5.33 cycles worth to stay active. ... time two for 2 kitchens.

so 54 plots of farm to cane and the other 6 for Corn..
Corn must be harvested 45 (2hr and 15min total) times and replanted for each 1 harvest of cane.
270 energy for corn + 54 for cane + 8 sugar collect + 8 candy collect = 340 total energy used every 4 hours
assuming energy return of 33% from crops = 107 energy returned => 340-107 = 233 energy every 4 hours out of natural generation of 80... o bummer.. where is my alicorn.

Lol! Stingy Greselda has to keep up appearances and can't be seen handing out candy. Although, I would be happy if she gave me dark plants instead of candy corn when I go treat-or-treating at her place. ;) :)

Is anyone else vastly amused by the fact that Sabina, Thurston, Old Thomas and Ivy give you candy when you knock on their doors, but the less-nice Greselda does not? LMAO!
And Kaz I guess doesn't give you any 'cause he's still not returned home. :(

I've been visiting a lot of neighbors, hoping that we can get candy corn in lieu of energy, coins or XP, but no luck there.

Everything about this event so far has been a hoot. I LOVE it!

ETA: I saw people mention getting candy corn from skunkupines and fangbeasts and want to add boars to that list.
I also got some candy corn from Thurston.

I'm so glad I did hardly anything for the last few days but turn that sugar cane into sugar. LOL.
Drop rate from harvesting corn is not very good so gonna be crafting a bunch in the kitchen, I think.

Side calculations...

To keep the kitchens running at full speed making candy corn .. .5 hr for the corn +.5 for the sugar = a cycle time of 1 hour requiring 5 cane and 25 corn. cane takes 4 hours to grow and corn 3 minutes so I need to farm 4 cycles worth to stay active. ... time two for 2 kitchens.

so 40 plots of farm to cane and the other 20 for Corn..
Corn must be harvested 5 times and replanted for each 1 harvest of cane.
100 energy for corn + 40 for cane + 8 sugar collect + 8 candy collect = 156 total energy used every 4 hours
assuming energy return of 33% from crops = 46 energy returned => 156-46 = 116 energy every 4 hours out of natural generation of 80... o bummer.. where is my alicorn.

OMG! You just blew my mind. And here I was just thinking this was going to be fun :)

Lol! Stingy Greselda has to keep up appearances and can't be seen handing out candy. Although, I would be happy if she gave me dark plants instead of candy corn when I go treat-or-treating at her place. ;) :)

Not to mention the anonymous stingy rich folk inhabiting the Royal Manor and Chateau Not only do they never deign to walk around my kingdom but they also won't give candy to trick-or-treaters? Bah humbug!

Did anyone else buy the gates and fences? When I try to connect the gate with the fence it covers the lights on the gate. It overlaps kinda weird. Anyone whose having this trouble? Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I tried the tower things to it also covers one of the gate lights. If I don't put it that close then there's a gap between them. No big deal but any input would be helpful. :) thanks

Oh and I also can't get the path to rotate.

I am having the same problem with the spooky gate and fences. They don't align properly. You either get a gap or an overlap. Needs to be fixed. When you go to drop the gate in place, the green squares show it lining up, but it doesn't land there. 16109 16110

LMFAO! Yes, I'm sure we'll be fine.

I did finally remember this week to do something I've always been meaning to do: NOT collect from my alicorn on Monday. Save that bonus energy for collection on Thursdays when I'm most likely to really want it. And sure enough, I'm happy I did!
I also rearranged my kingdom a bit so as to NOT put my alicorn on display. He is now hiding in a back corner, where his truly evil gem trap-itude is minimized. It's sad, but had to be done.

Whooo!!! I realy like this event!!! It's gonna be time-consuming, and I need an app that keeps track of what I need to do next (special alarm), so I don't miss out on any opportunities!

Gladly my hubby is playing along with me: since he's up far more early than I am, he saves me precious time! Like last time, I was planning to miss out on the last individual price, but then I thought: ah, what the heck, I never missed out on anything yet, so why start now? So we started working, almost 24/7, and I made it :D Not gonna happen this time, I'm determent to get the last price too!

TL: thanks for listening to us and giving us such awesome prices! I love it!

I'm SOOOO excited!

Now for serious business:
I got 5 candy-corn from collection 21 corn.
My knights will be out on adventure to the Plume Hive for another 12 hours, so I need to wait till they've returned before I can sent out the Trick or Treat-adventure.
Furthermore, I couldn't resist and bought the Jack o'Lantern, it has a cool-down time of 6 hours, so I don't know yet what it will drop.

Up till now I've got 67 candy corn, not bad for playing just a little more than half an hour ;)

MORE COCKTAIL NAPKIN MATH!!!!

18 Days of fun in the blood moon night. * 3 adventures / day =54 - 1 for late start => 53 adventures in trick or treating from castle
(I'm going to ignore the Barracks)
53 adventures means 53 hats, tiaras, and masks or 48 if you did caravans.. I did so 48 it is.

48 hats (72 hours double potion shop)
240 wool ( sheep everywhere! )
48 purple die
240 glimmer dust (break out the Troves)

48 tiaras (72 hours double Forge) ---> these are the hardest by far
480 silver ( this will hurt.. send only silver as gifts to me please :) )
240 jewels ( painful but not that bad)
96 mermaid scales ( hurray for mermaid ponds)

48 masks (72 hours double Workshop)
240 fur ( ok not easy but manticore and monsters help)
96 teeth ( monster hunting time )

They are shorter than the other towers. They go up to where the colored tile roof starts at the blue and pink tiled towers. Since the spooky walls are somewhat shorter though it still fits anyway. I would post a picture but for whatever reason my iPad won't load them.

The way this system works is that the gem price is the cost of the reward itself (in this case 5 x 15 gems for each item), and not actually the remaining skip amount on the quest itself.

You will never believe HOW much Corn you are going to use!!! I am always maxed on it and never grow it but now 1 candy corn takes 25 corn soooo guess what crops I am growing & growing & growing!!! You also need sugar!

So far I've only gotten candy corn from Sabina's house, Old Thomas's house, and Thurston's fort.

The instructions say it is when visiting the characters homes.

It's not quite that bad :) 25 corn actually makes 5 candy corn, not just 1

Did anyone buy this yet? I'm wondering how big it is...
The jack o lantern is 1 square. The Haunted Hall is 3x3. the banner is 1 square and you can barely see it all. I do really like the Jack o lantern, it kind of glows.

Wait, I thought it was just harvesting corn...so, harvesting *any* crop has a chance of also dropping candy corn?
Can someone from TL please clarify?

Nope, should only be from harvesting Corn.

Bats in the rafters:
- upgrade the Haunted Hall to Lv 3
Rewards: 1800 coins, 5xp and 40 candy corn

16111

Candy Container:
- Collect from Jack o'lantern (Goal is optional)
Rewards: 20 gems and 3xp

16112

^^^^^^not sure if you'll still get the 20 gems and 3xp if you've already bought one before the goal pops up? This effectively makes the Jack o'lantern 130 gems and not 150


Confection creation:
- harvest 20 corn
- make 5 candy corn (it actually means make candy corn in the kitchen 5 times, so a total of 25 candy corn to make)
Rewards: 1800 coins, 5xp and 25 candy corn

You can look to see if they have recent things in their kingdoms (like, in a couple days you can look for Halloween stuff and Haunted Hall). Also, look for some of the newer fairies stuff. If they're still leveling up, you can look to see if they're making progress and increasing levels. Also, look at their walls and see if there's new writing on it.

Here's what I did. When people requested materials from me, I visited them first. Then their names went to the bottom of the neighbor list. So I could do requests starting at the bottom of the list.

I had everything complete:D except the final 2 Simple Glues :rolleyes: when the quests expired:(. It would have been a wonderful idea :o if we had the option to purchase the remaining items needed, with an additional cost probably:rolleyes:. But I only needed TWO Simple Glues :mad:... for 75 gems:confused:??? I think not:p, but thanks for the generous offer :rolleyes: :D But I have 3 different kingdoms.
I am loving the Hal-o-weenie stuff though! Keep 'em coming!

So far this is looking like a great event! Candy corn is a bit energy intensive to cook up, but at least there are so many other ways we can collect them. I love how we can now collect candy corn from visiting our character houses! It's very halloween and until now I had no reason to visit and collect from these buildings (unless it was mandatory for a quest). It's not so clearly explained in game though and I only found out about it on this thread.

Great job, TL. Another awesome in-game event!

No, no reindeer stable, kingdom inn, greselda's dark garden, Glimmerbat Habitat, Summer Gazebo, etc, I woulnt bet on any seasonal building dropping anything, its not very logic to have a snow covered building to drop Halloween candy now is it in fact its easier to list what DOES drop candy corn.

According to Glimmergate's first post:

Collect Candy Corn to earn the different Halloween prizes. You can get it by:
Harvesting from Corn
Going on the Trick or Treat Adventure
Crafting it in the Kitchen
Visiting your characters' Houses
The Jack o Lantern item, which you can find in BUILDINGS -> SPECIAL in the Market
and a few other places...

Other place I've found: the haunted house & battling monsters

I got 1 of each from the adventure, but presumably/hopefully sometimes I will get more than 1 of each or we will need to get them from other places besides adventures (goal rewards maybe?) - otherwise 1 each means max 3 of each per day which is only 54 in 18 days, so short on the 70 needed.

I'm gonna guess that there will be a mini-quest next Thursday for extra bats & ghosts, similar to the quest that appeared in the middle of the Pyre Festival for extra stuff.

Still, TL, would you consider adding the trick-or-treat adventure to the barracks? ...even if it's for 16 hrs?

Im going to tell you what you and many other people trying to figure out so hard how to get the parchments, they drop AT LEAST from upgraded Haunted Hall (I think at least), Jack o' Lanterns and Adventure,

Well yes I did say that presumably I will get more than 1 of each on some occasions (the maths was merely to emphasise how it could be unrealistic otherwise) - I've only collected from one adventure so far and I'm hoping the 1 of each I got from it are not the norm and I'm interested to see what other people get, so it's great that you've had as many as 4 of each :)

I've collected 3 times at least from the Haunted Hall and haven't gotten any parchment bats or ghosts.

Oh, and between the adventure and completing the goal for the first adventure, I got 45 candy corns. So maybe 40 for the goal and 5 from the adventure?

I don't think the final number is known yet. However just for conjecture the goals bar looks evenly spaced out so goal 1 to goal 2 is 600. 600 x 4 more goals= 2400/18 days=133.333 candy corns per day.

If I remember correctly, the last prize in the Pyre Festival used 3200 sun stones. If it's the same this time, you have to make 177 candies a day for 18 full days, so to be safe, make at least 200 a day should do it.
Also, I can't believe that huge three square hall only gave me ONE candy... seriously....

Can anyone tell me the amount of candy needed to earn the final individual prize? Trying to just determine how many candies I need to earn each day to be on track for getting it.

If it's similar to the Pyre Festival it'll probably be somewhere between 2000 and 3000. Last time between 150 and 200 candy corn a day got me to the community prizes with a few days to spare.

I'm not sure whether this is an item I'm missing because this is my first Castle Story Holloween or not, but where is the Spooky tree mentioned in the first post?

Additional question: how much candy corn drops from monsters? Is it worth the energy you spend on it? (To explain, I have one Fangbeast in my Kingdom now where it doesn't hinder anything I do, so I am using that to save energy I otherwise have to waste on fighting monsters, so I'm wondering what to do now...)

I've had a range of 1-3 candy corn drop from monsters you'll have to fight then because soon enough you'll run out of creep tooth you'll need for the Fangbeasts masks. Start beating those beasts!

Spooky tree is one if the locked prizes. You need to get to that stage to unlock it.

10-17-14, 02:25 AM
Actually, it is not an easy event to pass thru. If you want to get 200 candies a day, then you probably have to get at least 150 from corns and others from quests, buildings.

When I harvest 30 corns, I get around 10 candies from them and the monsters appearing during harvest, and from the ~30 I can craft 5 more candies in kitchen. This is ~15 candies in 1,5 hours (30 energy you get in 1,5 hrs) so in case you want to get 150 candies a day from corns it takes you 10 hrs of corn harvesting and cooking.

With other words, if you want to complete this event, without spending gems, it would be a nonstop gaming for the next 18 days, with ignoring almost everything else. (like collect from animals, except sheeps - you need wool). And there are also the lot of silvers you need now, also furs... So, this is a though event this time.

BriarAvenue
10-17-14, 02:41 AM
Just a thought, Glimmergate,
Perhaps we can get some candies while visiting our neighbors?
Maybe a random drop in lieu of the existing rewards or hearts?
That will be in the true spirit of tricks or treats, no?

I've had a range of 1-3 candy corn drop from monsters you'll have to fight then because soon enough you'll run out of creep tooth you'll need for the Fangbeasts masks. Start beating those beasts!

Spooky tree is one if the locked prizes. You need to get to that stage to unlock it.

Thank you for your answer - I hadn't event thought of that... and there is the need of getting Fur, too. >_<

Actually, it is not an easy event to pass thru. If you want to get 200 candies a day, then you probably have to get at least 150 from corns and others from quests, buildings.

When I harvest 30 corns, I get around 10 candies from them and the monsters appearing during harvest, and from the ~30 I can craft 5 more candies in kitchen. This is ~15 candies in 1,5 hours (30 energy you get in 1,5 hrs) so in case you want to get 150 candies a day from corns it takes you 10 hrs of corn harvesting and cooking.

With other words, if you want to complete this event, without spending gems, it would be a nonstop gaming for the next 18 days, with ignoring almost everything else. (like collect from animals, except sheeps - you need wool). And there are also the lot of silvers you need now, also furs... So, this is a though event this time.

This made me realise that I probably won't get the final individual prize no matter how I try - I have a life offline that requires some attention - and frankly, I hate that.

I wish there was at least some item - like in Dragon Story - that give you a few event currency items every 4 hours... also something like the food farms in that, that gives you a reliable, calculable "income" so you can more or less figure out how to get to the goal without having to "be there" permanently.

Yup this time this event requires your "full" attention, while in DS or FFS you can go thru it with looking into your game like 2 or 3 days a day.
There IS an item that gives "event currency" as you mentioned, but this is the pumpkin for 150 gems. Also since it may give some required item for upgrading the haunted hall. So it may be a good investment in case you want to pass thru the event and have not time.

I think the only flaw in this world event is the haunted Hall. It should give more candy per collection, like the pyre tent did. I did buy two pumpkins, and if I harvest them faithfully, they'll give me around 850 candy in this event. I hope they will still give something when this is over

If I read glimmergate correctly, the hall will give wisps, lanterns and lumin essence. I took that to be after the event.

Didn't the pyre tent give more flags as you leveled it up? So by the same thought, the hall should give more candy as it levels up.

If the items described continue to drop the items mentioned after this event, then I think this event it is fantastic. There are EIGHTEEN more days. TL isn't asking anyone to do this over the weekend.

I meant, a FREE event currency giving item that you get as first event quest item - like the DS Cauldron - because I think that even people you don't want to spend real cash (for gems) should have a chance to get to the goal of the event. I don't mind if it's not all that easy - the Summer Gazebo, which was my first event, took quite a bit of work for me, but still was possible - but it SHOULD be possible.

Which I think this is not, unless there will be later changes.

As for buying the Pumpkin, I'd have to figure out first of all how to buy gems in the game... I wonder if prepaid itunes card would allow that...

TL! ~ please add candy corn drops to Kaz's abode and Greselda's castle... I mean, y'know, since they *are* character houses, which is listed in the first post as places we can find the sweet treats.
Thank-you, with whipped cream & a candy corn on top lol

Hi all. I'm having a problem. I want to upgrade the Halloween hall but the bar at the bottom isn't showing. I can only collect. What should I do?
