Hi.. I'm Level 49... Sister sister is the only Quest that is open at the Moment ... I finished the Halloween Event and there is no new quest... I restarted the game several Times... Andy idea?

Stock pile everything up! :D Then atleast you're prepared for the next goal :)

Thank goodness there isn't an update! I somehow doubt I'll ever manage to get the cow never mind the cauldron in the community event! And as for sister sister ......it's ridiculous !

I am despising the sister sister quest. WORST QUEST EVER! Rather sadistic and twisted. And I refuse to gem past any of it on principal.

Sister Sister took *forever*!!!

I'm at the beginning bit of sister sister. I've just decided this week to take my 20 year retirement in 2 1/2 years and so maybe I'll finish that quest before the big day. Lol

I'll probably be playing something else by then but it's fun to believe the dream of the game you currently love will go on forever. :)

Still working on sister sister. I'm ok with that. The Alicorn took me 10 months and The valentine botany took me almost a year with dozens of tries per day before I finished. Those pretty much broke me and my expectations for instant (or even monthly) gratification. Then we old timers went 6/9 months with no updates and no goals so now any goal even ones like sister sister is a good one in my book. However I reserve the right to whine and complain if sister sister takes me more than a year to finish!

The community prizes unlock when your own count gets to 650. The 2nd community prize, the haystack will have gone into your inventory if youce passed the amount of candy where the comimunity prizes are unlocked for you, so check there, that's where it will be. :)

This event is a big bust! Very anti-climatic! It was frustrating because some items are random. Some people got multiple hay wagons and multiple scarecrows, some people got 1 or less! TL needs to take a lesson from Dragon story. Every task gets a reward! No slave labor!

10-31-14, 04:17 PM
I agree this was most anti-climatic! I was all geared up for an awesome Friday night Halloween! I am disappointed!

This has been a great event. The Witch's Cauldron is giving really useful rewards - I've always had trouble getting enough sap. There's also the unexpected bonus of a full coffer of rat tails after fighting so many skunkupines and, thanks to help from this forum, knowing all the different ways to get silver. Good job Team Lava!

I, too, am still waiting for the crown....three tents and also a second skirt, which I could not receive. I know it's just a game, but this random way of coughing up items to complete a goal is frustrating. Feast or famine should be the name of the game....and I'm definitely experiencing famine.

Only 100 away from the cauldron. :)

Still slow on the nugget drops, only have 4 out of 10. I doubt I'll reach the full ten. I'm tending mines and bashing rock piles whenever I can!
Come on TL! Up the golden nugget drop rate!!

11-01-14, 03:14 PM
I am also mad about not getting the hayride or scarecrow during this event. I have finished all the request, including giving 10 nuggets (which I now regret). I have a level 5 HH and 3,888 candy corn. I finished getting the level 5 and the cauldron on the 9th day. I have stopped growing corn at this point, why bother? Besides, as most people have stated on this thread, I am only a level 38 player, not a level 50, and only the "higher level players" are carrying everyone else anyway.

How does one get the hayride. Don't say from adventure....I have done a ton of them....the only extra I get is hot sauce. :/

11-01-14, 04:09 PM
Guys and girls, can you please start planting corn again? Count is at 72 and it will ne very close or may be even passed if we do not step up the pace...who knows, the tree thingy might be something cool.....greetings and Happy Halloween

Yeah... well. Very bad timing. Not only one or two days before the events finish in many teamlava games, but also the maintenance is made on Sunday, just when I have plenty of time to play. I am 340 candy corn behind I was planning to keep on playing all Sunday to complete the event, Now I do not know If I will be able to make it, even if they add two extra hours to the event. I cannot play as much on Mondays. And I do not expect them to add the two extra hours, anyway.

SpiritWind00
11-02-14, 02:27 AM
I don't know if they will give us any time, but I hope that we can still make it to the tree despite another small setback. I agree, doesn't seems the best timing, but it must be really important else they wouldn't have done it now, but waited till all events were over. With people playing all over the world, it will always be bad timing for someone. Like you I do lots of playing now and can't play either. Hopefully it won't be too much longer...

As soon as time is up, can someone post please. Thanks all. ;)

tromalyt
11-02-14, 02:37 AM
Most people work during the week and have time to play during the weekends. It must be very important. Weird that all the teamlava games I play are on maintenance right now. I might get forced to do my weekend chores. :P

My thinking is the adventure will still run but no candy corn will drop, confirmation on this would be great as there will be a certain point when there is no point in sending out a trick or treat adventure.

PurpleScorpion76
11-02-14, 04:28 AM
Anyone else STILL not received the crown or skirt? I'm still waiting on the crown and only 2 more collections left. Also still no hayride.

You are not alone. I'm half with you. Waiting on skirt still and hayride, did manage the other two. At this point ive decided to just take what I get and at least be happy my hard work got the important prizes like all the individuals and HH level 5. If I get things I will be happy but if not it's just a game and yes I realize it's unfair for not all players to get the opportunity if they put the hard work in the whole event, but for whatever reason that is the strategy TL wants to go with. As long as they are decorations that to not add significance to the game like drops I'll just pout quietly lol. But 1 day left so not all hope is lost.

It would be nice if the items that you used trying to reach an impossible timed goal would be returned to your inventory. I have had 3 nuggets forever, and haven't gotten one yet during the Halloween event. I have plenty of apples and eggs, but no nuggets. They are just as hard to find as the real thing!

TastyCakeBakery
11-02-14, 07:53 AM
I guess I should clarify that the items be returned to your inventory IF you don't reach the goal. Otherwise they are wasted.

I found the nuggets impossible to get too. I had one for weeks before the event started. This in spite of regularly tending my 4 lvl 5 mines (2 of each)
I got another 2 since from mining and also I started chopping iron rock piles and large stone rock piles and got another 2.
That puts me halfway to the goal.
I don't want to use gems for the rest though, it's not worth it seeing as I've reached all the personal targets and am just making corn now for the team goal.

So after about 10 days of solid collecting, I still only have the armored skirt and no crown for Thurston. Even if I used 20 gems to skip, I'd still need to do the Jeweler's trade. Is there any reward beyond the coins and candy corn to make skipping worth it?

Not worth using the gems IMO. There is no other reward, so if you've gotten your cauldron, you don't need the extra candy corn.

Me too, nothing received just coins

OK, this quest is finished, ha ha! I never did receive the pants From either of my two theaters which were collected from 2x daily. Got the top piece right away, and then it camea second time. Now I just spent 100 or so gems to "FINISH" the goal. Took my gems but I have no idea where the pants are for the costume-no they are not In my inventory. I do hope that somewhere along the way it shows me that I did receive something other than a few pieces of candy corn. CS has halloweened me out. Not a big fan of the dressing up part without a game taking so much time to finish related goals. I love playing CS, but after the past month I will probably skip any goals/quests that require such large amounts of time, gems, or related ideas or whatever. Yes, after paying out those gems and not knowing if I even received the small amount of candy corn, CASTLE STORY has left a very sour taste in my mouth. Sorry TL.

Loved the event and the prizes... I just hope future events won't be quite so time consuming. Not sure my husband would put up with it again.;) I even enlisted my kids to help after school before I came home from work, or I never would have made it.

Thanks again. The collection is beautiful. I especially like the pieces you can turn around to hide the Halloween aspects. I will keep those out year round.

I wish the Halloween event had thought to give us some candy drops (chocolate and bon bons), seems like that would be in the spirit of the holiday, but I'm going to hope that we'll eventually get something like that due to the many complaints about all the fairy items hogging the kitchen crafting time. I enjoy the cauldron very much though, as I'll soon max out on all glues (already topped off magic cement and architect's paste) and inks (maxed on yellow and blue already) and fulfill that particular personal goal. Will probably eventually put away the haunted house since I've only ever gotten one drop from it (earth wisp and I was maxed out) and the jack o lantern, although I've turned it backwards so it's just a pumpkin decorating my kingdom now.

I stored my haunted house. If it reliably gave an item like the reindeer stable it'd be worth keeping out in an already cluttered kingdom but with just a "chance" it's not worth keeping out.

With just over 2 days left as long as everyone puts in some effort at 65% we should make it.....hopefully!

DId any one NOT receive the CAULDRON or the CROWN? I received the skirt on second collection. Did everything asked to, made as much candy corn as possible. Received spooky tree. Then suddenly event was over which I found out when I went to do collections. Yes, I knew it was almost over but NEVER saw the CAULDRON - Where was it suppose to be? - and NEVER RECEIVED the CROWN with two theaters and two collections daily.

Also, I went to try and find the CAULDRON to see if it was available for purchase. If it was, please tell me where I should have looked as it was not anywhere in my CS game. I play on a ipad, just in case that makes a difference and even though event is over I would like to know where I went wrong that I missed the CAULDRON and CROWN.

The cauldron was the last individual prize (spooky tree is a community prize). How many candy corn did you collect? You needed 3100 candy corn in order to win the cauldron.

The crown was not necessary to get the cauldron, which was the last individual prize.

During the event you can monitor your progress for the prizes by tapping the event icon on the right hand side of the screen. It shows you how many corn you need to reach all the prizes. When you got close to the cauldron it would also give you an option to buy the missing corn to reach the prize with gems.


You got the spooky tree because you had enough corn to qualify for the community prizes but not enough corn to get all the personal prizes.

Well, don't feel alone. I've never gotten anything from my HH either. Not during the event, other than the coins & candy corn, and not after. Pretty disappointing. :(
