Lovely...one question though... WHERE ARE THE EXPANSIONS?!?!?! I've been at level 50 for 4 months or so. I currently have expanded to every space and have 172 trade tickets. Yes, 172!!! Where am I supposed to put all of this stuff?

Well wait until the Halloween event is finished. Hopefully in November we will have an expansion before starting the XMas event in December.

Well, I have still >350 trade ticket in stash for the next expansions. And I am at level 50 since... agrl.... I don't remember, but when the level cap was lifted I was at 50 in 1 second.

This is so much to accomplish in 11 days; I'm having a bit of a panic attack. Especially with all of the events happening in other TL games. I might have to quit a game or two just to save my sanity :(

Here's the problem though...because I'm completely expanded, somehow my option to make permits went away. I can do the trades and get tickets, but I can't convert them into permits.

So do I, but you can stockpile the tickets, once the expansions are available you can convert them into permits.

It's always been that way. That's why some of us leave one expansion permanently open so we can pre make expansion permits.

Im curious, if those of us lower levels do not have all of the characters unlocked in the kingdom (for example I'm missing Griselda), does that mean we are unable to complete this chain of quests in its entirety?

That's a great idea! I'm not at my max yet but I'm going to remember that and stockpile as many permits as I can... until I can't stand it any more and take the last expansion lol.

Correct. You can only complete what you have the characters for. But you are only missing out on 40 candy corn total by not having Greselda. You can still get 120.

I put mine in storage so I could build the HH. Now I'm gonna have to rearrange again. Oh, bother. Guess I'll have to build another & find a place for it, too. SMH.

Well, I do need a few chocolate cake, so I can now stock pile some corn again.

We're just not given them so even the lowest lev would have Ivy's, The Barons and Thomas's.

I feel your pain... I have 292 trade tickets, I had over 300 but made some expansion permits thinking we would get some extra space soon... This is getting crazy. We are getting lots of cool stuff but nowhere to put them! Frustrating. This game should allow people to have a nice kingdom, I hate when my kingdom looks like a mess. Right now I am just trying to show everything everywhere and trying to survive. I also hate when you visit people's kingdom and you just can't get to click on the hearts because they are hiding behind items.

It usually takes a while for them to show up in the quest count. I don't know why. Always does for me, though.

zenobia42
10-24-14, 03:45 PM
Related to that, I had SO many responses to my purple cloth request, that I went 10 over the limit. I have 30. This is GREAT! Means I'll finish before I wake up tomorrow instead of the usual extra day it takes to get 20+20+10. While I am very happy about this, and very grateful to my wonderful neighbors, it makes me even more confused as to how it can possibly be that we are doing SO poorly on the community goal. CLEARLY a ton of people are online and doing their darnedest to win all the prizes. So WHY is the community prize meter moving so incredibly slowly it appears that we have a very good chance of not even making the second prize? I REALLY think something is wrong with the community count total, and has been for days. Maybe since the servers were down. It just doesn't make any sense.

Plus, I am responding to about 50 requests an hour myself. People are PLAYING. But we are moving at a snail's pace on the community goals. More like a snail pulling a lead weight. It's just not right. Something is wrong with the meter.

10-24-14, 03:52 PM
So for finding the armor, I guess we may have to make multiple visits to the theatre to find it? That would explain why it wasn't checked off when I tapped on it.

Also, is anyone else having problems with the count for the purple princess? My neighbor responded to my request (which I can see on the newsfeed) but it doesn't read 1/50. Is there a glitch?

Sometimes it just takes a little while for the counter to sync. Mine did the same. I could see them coming in, but the counter remained at 0. I force closed and when I came back, I had 22, which is my daily limit. :)

10-24-14, 05:38 PM
Got 25 Purple Cloths already. My idea: if you check in to the game, the game registers you have recieved a request. But, if you answer that request late, a lot of other people have got the same request and thus you can go over the limit of 20 a day.

It's supposed to stop at 20. But I'd always heard about people who get a few extra just because the final responses sometimes come in so quickly, a few extra sneak in before the game catches up and locks them out for the rest of the day (and also if you ask Stormie after you already have 20, he still gives you another). I had never heard of anyone getting 30 which is why I was REALLY surprised to see I got that many. And as I said, it shows just how many players are active during this event. There is no WAY the community total is correct.

Maybe it's just me, but I find Griselda is being pretty greedy considering she is the only kingdom walker who does not give candy corn to the trick or treaters. She rarely even gives glimmer bits!

I can't collect from her house until tomorrow. Has candy corn been added, I wonder?

I absolutely agree about the Community Counter, I have dropped everything in the game to concentrate on the candy corn, I am sure many players did the same.
I Bought gems twice, and sped up my wizard schools, chopped my energy crates, and drove my Alicorns to the brink, got my Dracowla and have 500 corn to collect to reach the last prize. My back is killing me from collecting corn and sugar! ;) And Thousands of players are doung exactly the same thing!

Yet, every time I check the darn meter I see it at the same rate, there's definitely something WRONG with this counter! :rolleyes:

I will continue collecting the corn until the event is done and over, without doing anything else, I am sure most players will do the same, so why the heck this meter is not moving?! :rolleyes:

I dont understand how you can get so many permits. I have been working on the expansions since they came out last time and still have 3 expansion plots left to complete. It takes me well over a month to get enough tickets to make enough expansion permits to expand one spot. I still need a total of 10 permits to expand completely.. Thats 300 tickets. Not sure but thinking i may be missing something. The only way to get tickets is to trade right???

Nothing at either of my two theaters. What's the award for these quests anyway, more candy corn? I should be able to finish collecting for the individual prize in the next day or two so I don't see the point in doing them if that's the only reward.

Ii didn't catch that after making the costume pieces for Thomas we have to give 10 Gold nuggets. I'm not even going to attempt to finish that one, they are too hard to come by. As for making the chocolate cake I can't do that either if I am making candy corn. I don't see the point of these quests. If they would give me ghosts or bats then perhaps but not candy corn.

For those of you who are thinking of chucking it on this update, this is the way TL is helping us get candy corns for the group total. Without it, we have no chance of getting the prizes. Hopefully next week there will be another update which will help us even further. So, please do what you can!

I think I will hang on to my gold nuggets until the last day of the event. If I'm still short on candy corns on the last day, then the baarou baron can have the gold nuggets (I do have 59 stashed away) and I'll take the 30 candy corns lol :p

Now I have 2251 candy corn and will be getting my Cow!Dracula (still can't think of a name for her yet!) when I wake up. Good night all! :D

I'm all for helping the community, and will certainly keep collecting and doing the quests that I think are worth it for the candy corn they give. However, ultimately this is an individual game, and I think all of us will weigh up what is worth the trade off and what isn't. For me, personally, the nuggets (which I don't have anyway) would be too big a sacrifice for 30 candy corn. But that doesn't mean I won't be doing everything reasonable to help with the total; it just means that I know the value of rare drops!

Making chocolate cake items has slowed me down a little as far as gaining Candy Corn. I think I can still make it to the witch's cauldron in 8 days.
I used 20 silver for the platter which means a struggle to make more tiaras as silver is so hard to come by.
I too think I'll hold off on the giving the baron the gold nuggets. Not worth it just for the sake of getting 30 CC.

Getting the witch's cauldron has greater value as it drops potion shop items.
And Trick or Treat adventures are needed to get the ghosts and bats for the HH. I'd like to be able to upgrade to level 5. I'm not even yet at level 4.Think I'm going to need to use gems to complete it on the last day of the event.
Ghosts only seem to drop at a rate of 1 or 2 per adventure. :( I have 8 more bats than ghosts.
So I think I'm going to hold off completing the latests quests until the last couple of days.

I have 4 mines as well and level 50, I just don't know what to do with my full stack of nuggets. I cannot trade as I need golden apples, which for me is a real constraint. As I am short on candies I don't mind.

Nothing at either of my two theaters. What's the award for these quests anyway, more candy corn? I should be able to finish collecting for the individual prize in the next day or two so I don't see the point in doing them if that's the only reward.

I only need about 20 more corn to get the cauldron but will still collect manically to contribute to community prize so every 20 corn helps I guess

This is so much to accomplish in 11 days; I'm having a bit of a panic attack. Especially with all of the events happening in other TL games. I might have to quit a game or two just to save my sanity :(

I have given up RS, BS and DS and according to my family have NOT managed to save my sanity.... especially now planting and harvesting, planting and harvesting..... spending at least 20 Min per hour playing CS to get enough candy corn.

Funny how that is I got ghost glore get one bat per adventure....lol
Making chocolate cake items has slowed me down a little as far as gaining Candy Corn. I think I can still make it to the witch's cauldron in 8 days.
I used 20 silver for the platter which means a struggle to make more tiaras as silver is so hard to come by.
I too think I'll hold off on the giving the baron the gold nuggets. Not worth it just for the sake of getting 30 CC.

Getting the witch's cauldron has greater value as it drops potion shop items.
And Trick or Treat adventures are needed to get the ghosts and bats for the HH. I'd like to be able to upgrade to level 5. I'm not even yet at level 4.Think I'm going to need to use gems to complete it on the last day of the event.
Ghosts only seem to drop at a rate of 1 or 2 per adventure. :( I have 8 more bats than ghosts.
So I think I'm going to hold off completing the latests quests until the last couple of days.

Grrrrh glad to see someone else has caught on to Griselda no corn just collected. That is why I campaign for KAZ to a kingdom walker. The Lady Ivy misses him so. LoL cheers 🔪1⃣4⃣🔘🌀❎❎QUOTE=PrincessCupOButter;988157]Maybe it's just me, but I find Griselda is being pretty greedy considering she is the only kingdom walker who does not give candy corn to the trick or treaters. She rarely even gives glimmer bits!

I can't collect from her house until tomorrow. Has candy corn been added, I wonder?[/QUOTE]

I'll probably give the 10 golden nuggets, as I have 80 of them - up until 2 days ago I've only ever had 1 sparkling mine and 1 deep mine (2 days ago I decided to add 1 more of each to get the silver for tiaras, but I've made it to almost level 49, and completed all goals, without the need for more than 1 of each mine),but I never trade them as I'm low on golden apples.

10-25-14, 05:46 AM
I don't think I've ever been this depleted. I had a stockpile for most of the items but now I'm out of everything needed for these prizes. I'm thinking of going for the last individual prize and then just stockpiling again. I feel bad not helping for the community prizes but I have nothing more to give.

10 gold nuggets??? I am level 50 and collect from all 4 mines regularly, and only have 8. No chance! Not for the sake of candy corn, anyway.

Chop rocks. I've got three since starting this timed event. 1 from a mine 2 from rocks.

PurpleScorpion76
10-25-14, 06:04 AM
Is it just me or are there still quite a few people over a week on asking how to make candy corn? Go to your kitchens for those of you that don't know.

Every little helps and I'm not trying to advertise a UK supermarket, everyone do what you can and we'll get there. Last time we noticed an increase in the second community prize total of Sunstones needed but a drop in the need for the third community prize. TL will more than likely take a look at those figures when we get nearer to the third prize unlocking. Your all doing fantastically well, keep up the good work and as a community we can get there.

Hi! My cow says her name is Wilhemina (Mina) Moo. Seems like a lot of name for a cow, but what do I know? Did someone write we can get nuggets possibly from chopping rocks? Is that the big cropping which takes 20 energy to clear? I have the ten, but hate to give them up since I get them so rarely. Can someone confirm they're a slim possibility from the big rock cropping? Thanks.

blazeyace

Mina is a cute name. Just like in Bram Stoker's Dracula. I have not received any nuggets for chopping rocks but I have been getting the silver I need.

10-25-14, 08:59 AM
I'm pretty sure there is some game-logic that makes you always miss one of two parts or one of three parts. In my case I have had plenty of gold apples but no nuggets.. And always glimmer fragments are missing while shards I got plenty of, whereas others have the opposite case.

So for me giving up 10 gold nuggets (only have 8) would be to sacrifice 15 gems+3 trade tickets, bad deal for sure. I know I could start chopping rocks, but I'm pretty certain that the energy-wise I would get a better return of candycorn by harvesting corn and making them in the kitchen. The later is also guaranteed to get candy corn, while I'm not certain I will get any gold nuggets in the near future even spending all my energy chopping different rocks.

I've finished the individual portion but will continue to collect candy corn to help out the community even though I don't care about the last two prizes.

Have one more cathedral collection and waiting on neighbor replies and then I think that's it for me. since we've been trick or treating like crazy people I would love it if TL would treat us with expansions. I'm overcrowded and have had to store a ton of stuff. My kingdom isn't pretty anymore. PLEASE please more expansions!

Related to that, I had SO many responses to my purple cloth request, that I went 10 over the limit. I have 30. This is GREAT! Means I'll finish before I wake up tomorrow instead of the usual extra day it takes to get 20+20+10. While I am very happy about this, and very grateful to my wonderful neighbors, it makes me even more confused as to how it can possibly be that we are doing SO poorly on the community goal. CLEARLY a ton of people are online and doing their darnedest to win all the prizes. So WHY is the community prize meter moving so incredibly slowly it appears that we have a very good chance of not even making the second prize? I REALLY think something is wrong with the community count total, and has been for days. Maybe since the servers were down. It just doesn't make any sense.

Plus, I am responding to about 50 requests an hour myself. People are PLAYING. But we are moving at a snail's pace on the community goals. More like a snail pulling a lead weight. It's just not right. Something is wrong with the meter.

I have recieved 44 in two days I always seem to get 21/22 responses each time I request from my neighbours :)

This is the first time this happens with the requests! I have sent another 21 today, and all I got until now is 5 though the neighbors I sent my requests to, visited me today, what's up with that TL?!

I have a friend who is also one of my neighbors.I sent her a request the first day, and she never received it. She sent requests to me on both days, and I never received either one of them. I do not know what system is used, but I do know that there seems to be no guarantee that all neighbors will receive your request.

I try to hold off on sending requests all at once. I often visit them first and send one when they visit me back. I also send requests to those who have sent one to me. It does seem to help control it a bit.

Good luck!

Can someone tell me why when I do what is asked to do in the second part, showing up at Cathedrals and Libraries and Market Places I get credit for it, but I put out my two Level 5 Theaters and go to them to collect the items, I don't get anything? There is a long wait on the Theaters. Is this something that needs to be reported to support? It seems out of line with everything else that has gone on in this event. Things have moved along smoothly all the way to here and it seems I suddenly have come to a complete standstill.

I also don't have much room and have messed up my neat little Kingdom to put all of these old buildings back in because I had removed them to make room for the new ones.

Has anyone finished this week's quest? Can I safely remove my Cathedrals, Libraries, Marketplaces and duplicates of the other buildings? I admit, I am OCD about my kingdom looking tidy, and it is far from tidy at the moment. I have no problems with making it untidy for an event as awesome as this one has been, but are we getting to where I can begin tidying up and putting unneeded buildings back into storage?

And can someone from TL confirm if it is normal and necessary to try seventeen (or maybe more) times at the Theaters to pick up the items needed to complete this quest, or is this a glitch that we need to report? Thanks!

Whichever is fine, but I would feel more comfortable knowing. I have to say this is the most awesome and enjoyable CS Event I have participated in since I began playing in January! The prizes are awesome and fit perfectly with the event and the artistic integrity of CS as a game is met and in many places exceeded in my opinion with this event! I have had no reservations at all or anything that I could imagine could be improved upon until my Theaters failed to give me the items I was expecting, and it may be that is planned, or maybe it is a glitch, but either way my opinion that this Event rocks is solid! Thanks for giving us such an awesome and well thought out Event TL! It is obvious that a tremendous amount of work went into making this such an awesome Halloween Event for us! :D

My fourth trip to a theater I finally found a "Prince's Crown"! Now I just need to find the Armored Skirt. :)

Lee, it's a rare drop. I have no idea why they decided requiring you get 2 rare drops from a 12-hour building is a good idea. I had a second theater in storage I pulled out for this event or I wouldn't even have the 1. And there are only the 4 characters' quests, each with 2 steps, that's it. I have to think that, since the theater, other than this event, never drops anything, most people had at most 1 out, likely only having ever built 1. And it takes 3 ehcanted beams & blocks plus 5 builder's pates & blue dyes to build... not exactly something most people can whip out in an hour. It's a TOUGH quest. I think almost all the step 2's are pretty tough in one way or another (lot's of people aren't able, or aren't willing if they are able, to give up 10 gold nuggets for example). I think they wanted it to be very possible everyone get the first steps but not everyone finishes the seconds.

Thank god for these updates! Maybe this will take some of the load off the servers since people won't have to plant as much corn. They're pretty fun goal in their own right, and it's a nice change to have something else to do other than plant corn :D

I also noticed they up-ed the beast rates, which both releases more candy and puts a pause to the incessant corn planting. I'm still getting lots of drop outs and plenty of rollbacks though. I hope TL think next week's halloween out more thoroughly. Its' almost impossible to play DS, CS properly like this.

I have two Theatres. On the first two attempts nothing. Then on the 3rd attempt I got the crown from the first Theatre and when I clicked on the the second Theatre a message pops out from the side saying you have reached your limit for crowns! What the!! LOL.
I was so hoping for both the crown and the armoured skirt or even just the one crown, but two crowns? lol So that means that on the next collection there is still a possibilty that I may still get yet another crown. :(
Hopefully the skirt will appear instead.

Ooooze

Not One gift box from the adventure.... Booo hooo !!!!!!!! I just level up my haunted hall to 5. I still Well sent out trick or treat adveture to help towards community prizes.

oh my gosh, me neither!! I have never received a gift box from the adventures all this time. I upgraded my Haunted Hall to level 5 today as well.

Up until the end, I'm going to keep doing adventures and growing corn and making candy corn in the kitchen. Just waiting for both items from the theatre now and hoping I get the gifts from adventures before time is up! :(

Actually only 20 requests go out per day no matter how many neighbors you actually click. I think they take the first 20 alphabetically, so what I do is pick only neighbors that are level 40 and above to weed out those that are not active players, and send it to them. Then I go back and click on level 30 players and send it to them. This way it goes out to at least 20 players, starting with the longest and most active so I have the best chance of a response (sorry lower level players!). I've found this works with all the other quests as well - it's been this way for a while with neighbor requests. There is always a 20 response daily limit.

It would be nice if the drop rate for gold nuggets was increased for the duration of the Old Thomas/Baron quest (step 2) being active. The requirements for this step do not currently match the value of the reward for me. I only have 8 nuggets at the moment; but if I somehow manage to get 10 before this event is over, I don't know if I'll give them up for this quest because they are so hard to come by.

TL: Will this quest need to be completed in order to get a new quest in any upcoming updates for this event?

Have 3 theatres and no armoured skirt! And I got the message to say I couldn't hold another crown... And so another 12 hour wait starts again. My prop room must be so badly organised that's why no one can find it.

ARGH! I just got a black flag that I already have the Prince's Crown. So why didn't it drop the Armored Skirt instead! Or at LEAST make the limit 2 crowns so I could keep one in my inventory. This quest and the rarity of the drops is SO frustrating!

Wohoo, I just got the crown on the 10th click! The jewler's trade was waiting and I got 2 (two!) adamant!

So the only things I'm still waiting for are the special boxes from the adventure. And of course the community prizes.

Oh, and I really love my couldron. Thanks TL for this awesome event!

I know there are still some people wondering whether you need the jack o'lantern to complete the quests in time.

No, you don't! I have at present 3,368 candy corn and got the cauldron yesterday. I received the last parchment ghost I needed this morning, so also have a level 5 haunted house. For the Halloween quests I have everything apart from Sabine's armour, with 8 days to spare, and all without the jack o' lantern. I was able to do 3 adventures a day most days, but had 36 hours with no wifi at all so it's definitely achievable without the pumpkin (which in any case doesn't help with all the costume elements). :D

Obviously a lot of people have the pumpkin and love it, but if you're struggling for gems it really isn't necessary.

I don't know abt other players but I have found this 🌽quest repetitive and has become boring! Not only do we not only have enough energy to collect from our buildings and grow corn n sugar even the mines are sparsely giving us silver!! All my nbrs need silver I am now at the stage where I know for a fact I won't be able to lvl house up to5 but have now put up a message for my friends that no ❤will be available as I need to collect n grow corn n sugar in the hope I can get to the end individual prizes. This has been a very hard quest and not everyone is in a position to buy gems to help out. I know I can't. I will be glad to see this quest finished😭soz for rant

10-27-14, 05:51 AM
I have to agree that it is too repetitive and I became bored. I just got the cauldron and I did use gems at times - if I had not done that I would have totally been bored to the point of quitting. I can't always do the gems so I will really think about whether I will do the next one or not. Plus the many many many adventures I have been on have not given the hayride. Weird since one of my neighbours has three!!! Nothing from theatre yet either. I guess they manipulate rate we get candy, etc., which is kind of annoying. I guess when you pay you do not want to feel things are being manipulated to make it harder, and in this case too repetitive without enough gain.

Made steady progress through this community event (Thank you TL for the nice additions & prizes--they are great!). But then came last Friday's update...and the "Prince & Knight!" I have 4 theaters out, have collected at least 3-4 rounds (so 12-16 tries). Received 3 armored skirts (can only hold 1 in inventory) and 0 crowns! I'm sure there are others out there getting the exact opposite result as me (all crowns, no skirts), or even none at all. I agree with others who have said that 12 hours is a long time to wait on a building with a "random drop." Especially for those who don't have multiple theaters in stock. Good luck everyone!

Have been to the theater 5 or 6 times. Have gotten the crown only. And wouldn't it be nice if the mines would drop some gold nuggets so we don't have to buy gems to get those expensive nuggets?!

Pulled my second theater out of storage as soon as the quest began. Collected once the first day from my first theater and 4 collects per day since, for a total of 11 theater collections so far. And I've had THREE crowns drops but ZERO armored skirts. This quest is really friggen annoying. Do I have waste a tons of resources to buy a third and maybe a fourth theater to have a chance at this????? And there is NO WAY I'm going to pay the WAY too steep price of 20 gems to skip it. I finished part 2 of all 3 other character's quests yesterday or the day before. But I can't get past part 1 of this one. *bangs head on wall*

Iceglimmer
10-27-14, 09:29 AM
Third skirt today, still no crown. I have three theaters. But we still have a few days to go. It will be touch and go whether I get my haunted house upgraded in time. I usually only do two adventures a day. I don't have gems, so I'm not tempted to speed ahead. Ive quite liked having to get buildings out of storage, because it made me reorganize my kingdom.

What other REQUIREMENT is there for the Old Thomas & The Baron Quest
as stated in the beginning posts- the Rise and Shine quest was completed.

BARON/OLD THOMAS QUEST
Step 1 - A Costume Fit for a King
REQUIREMENTS: must have Rise and Shine completed
Give faux fur x10
Workshop (30mins): 3 Hides, 1 Super Glue, 5 Wheat

Like many others, I have another device- level 19 -only Ivy & OT Walkers,
so will not get the Lady G or Sabina & Thurston quests
this device did get the IVY Quest
BUT not the OT & Baron

Thinking ahead. If there is a Winter Event available to Lv.15 + and the Baron is involved - what additional requirements will have to be fulfilled?

Rockylandia
10-27-14, 10:16 AM
Loving the cauldron. Dropped a magic cement once. Dyes, glues, enchanter's essence. I'm never maxed on those things, except purple dye, because I lose interest in crafting them.

Lovely...one question though... WHERE ARE THE EXPANSIONS?!?!?! I've been at level 50 for 4 months or so. I currently have expanded to every space and have 172 trade tickets. Yes, 172!!! Where am I supposed to put all of this stuff?

How were you able to accumulate so many trade tickets? I max out at 99.

I have a question about the jack o lantern. Once the quest is over, will it still drop parchment bats and ghosts? My haunted mansion is at lvl 4 and I don't think I have enough resources to keep going on the trick or treat quests, will I be able to upgrade my mansion after the even has ended?

I read somewhere that expansions are in their future plans but no indication as to how soon it might happen.

The maximum listed for trade tickets is 99. If you find the trade tickets in your inventory and click on the question mark, it should show the amount you have out of 99. Are you saying that yours is 172/99? It would be wonderful to know if we are allowed to exceed the max!:eek:

Both trade tickets and dark seeds can go over 99. Should they drop from an adventure or from the garden in the case of dark seeds, they won't get added in, however you can still do trades to get tickets or craft dark seeds. I currently have 470 trade tickets & nearly 400 dark seeds. Some keep an expansion slot open so they can craft expansion permits, I chose not to, will do so when more expansions become available. Likewise I have a neighbour who is still doing the trade to get inscriptions, because it is still there, however I have just kept my seeds as they are rather then growing them and trading as I'm not sure what the future requirements will be, inscriptions from plant trades, different plants....?

Yes, I know TL, I am off topic, but wanted to let the above know they could keep trading.

Now back to looking for that crown, 3 theaters, 4 days, 2 collections a day, so that's 24 so far, multiple armour, no crown...

At one time I had over 500 trade tickets. I've reduce it to just over 100 by making expansion permits in hopes of future expansions. I normally keep my trade tickets around 300 but Maguar stated a month or so ago that if you are over 99 you can't get the free ones if they drop from adventures. I had no idea trade tickets dropped from adventures so I slowly started to reduce my inventory. Have a expansion permit cooking right now, will do another one after that and that will take me below 99 just in case one drops :-)

ETA: so that I'm on topic...finished upgrading my hall to level 5 today.

No, according to the first post, it's only a usable item for the duration of the event.

Good info on tickets, I absolutely agree and confirm that is correct, you can go over 99 on these 2 items. Now before I have to moderate my own post.... (!!!), I finally got the skirt this morning. I don't know if it's just a coincidence, but I didn't just collect from the theatre, I went to my goal book first and then clicked on the theatre with the yellow arrow. Just make sure you have enough material should you wish to do the Jewellers trade in the exchange because that's the next step.

Long live the candy corn busters! (That's all of us!) :)

Nope, it's just giving candy corn. The goal it leads to is just giving candy corn also. Plus some xp and gold, but I don't value those, so I don't give that attention.

I have no idea how this happened but I got the cauldron today. I have never finished individual prizes so early in an event before. Still in desperate need of silver for quests for ghosts (need 8 more) and diligently checking my lonely theater for costumes.

First drop from cauldron was a simple glue and an architects paste plus coins.

470 trade tickets??? Seriously?? I am speechless. I think I do well, and I have 40!! Wow.

Now that I have caught my breath.....I got the crown on my 16th collection. Yay. Now after the elusive gold nuggets while I think about whether I want to give them up when I get them. Depends on candy corn stocks, I guess.

Drop rate of golden nuggets needs to increase.
I've two lvl5 deep mines and haven't received a nugget from either in weeks. (Only had one nugget prior to this event anyway).
This means I can't compete the baron/old thomas goal thus denying the community a contribution of 30 corn towards the global goal.

At level 50, this type of event should be achieveable with regular playing and strategy.
Please team lava increase the drop rate of nuggets... I'm not spending 72 gems to buy 9 nuggets. :mad::mad::mad:

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.

You will notice the little icon on the left of what ever new game they are premoting sometimes on the screen, or under your goals- I have downloaded the game- Then you close and reopen and it will say collect from a tax buidling, you get awarded 30 gems- Your goals will be updated then, and the new goal will say "go to level 3" but i have stopped getting gems after that point...

I think what they're trying to say is they are helping lower level players to get the community prizes I've levelled up twice in this game since the timed event started and now classify myself a high level player but I was around the 30's when the pyre event was on and I never gave up. I'd like to think were all working towards the same goal and a low level player in my opinion is up to 20-25 depending on the type of event. I'm still planting corn because I really want the spooky tree not for the bones and creep tooth I've been maxed on those for weeks now but because it will go great in my spooky area.

I am a level 50 player, ( got all the individual prizes with HH lvl 5 and still planting corn and 3/adventures a day ) But no, we cannot carry everyone from level 40 and lower because they are angry they did not get this or that from the adventures, keep on doing the adventures, you will end up getting one or both.

It was on my 25th adventures that I got a hayride, still no scarecrow though after nth adventures. Never got golden nuggets - during this event from deep mines- though I have 2 deep mines level 5, I got 3 nuggets by chopping Iron rich rocks.

If everyone would think the same, then we will all lose the last prize, due to each player relying on another player to continue!

I will continue doing the same thing not because I need the Spooky tree drops, am basically maxed out on all it gives, but because it is a momentum of our community work all together :)

Don't give up and good luck :)

Very well said. I am only on level 33 but have done very well. I am done with everything and now going on adventures and chopping corn until the event is over. I am now happily at 4409cc. Looking forward to seeing what Thursday's update brings.

That's not really a fair way of thinking or playing. I'm level 47 and still no hay ride or the armored skirt. I finally gemed through that one even though I had 3 theaters out and just got irritated. I'm still plugging along and have no intention of stamping my foot and calling it quits to let everyone else carry the load.

I am with you on this I started this event on level 29 am now 32 from all the Xp from corn HHS has bee lol 5 for a few days and have had the cauldron for few days, corn is just about to tick over to 4300 bought no gems but got some playing the barons side games! one alicorn, 2 level 3 wizard schools and a lot of determination, did get the jackolanterns, heck that tree is really important to me, desperately trying to get enough trades for the tinkers camp before the next event, the monster trade gives 25,000 coins too so for lower levels it is a great prize, haven't had any gifts from adventures but that ok sometimes you win some and it is just a decoration, I bet the spooky tree is awesome looking!

If everyone would think the same, then we will all lose the last prize, due to each player relying on another player to continue!

For me I had a stock pile of sugar and was able to craft crazy amounts of Candy. I will hit the 3100 to night. I'm still waiting for the second community prize. It doesn't seem that my group will get to the third. I know the comminit prize is all about timing

I'm working on the last goal now (trade with the jewelers) but continuing to collect/craft candy corn. Also still adventuring; I really hope I can get the Hayride one of these days. Good luck everyone! Keep up the great work :)

50 is the level cap right now (highest you can get). Your XP keeps counting though, so when new levels are added, you'll probably skip past a few levels. TL gave energy crates in the past to make up for the energy lost by skipping over levels.

Just for installing "the game of the week" from TL you get 30 gems.... Not a ton, but may get you a few items..


Thanks for this! I did it today and got extra gems. Yay! Saving up for an Alicorn.

I truly hope that those of you who celebrate Halloween achieve your goals, but just to throw a spanner into the works! ... I don't celebrate Halloween, neither do a lot of my European and Asian neighbours. I'm still doing the Halloween adventure when I can (silver stocks are seriously depleted) because I'd love the Haywain, but please bear in mind that for many of us this holiday is, quite simply, NOT a holiday. Halloween is not celebrated in many countries. The summer event worked because virtually everyone has summer (even if the players in the Southern Hemisphere were in the middle of their winter!) but a lot of us aren't really motivated by this event.

As I say, I hope you get the final community prize, and I am still doing the adventures so am contributing to it - albeit for my own personal aims - but please don't complain if you have neighbours who are not into the Halloween event at all. I do feel that a few of my neighbours are being critical because I 'just don't get it' but would you be surprised by non-American neighbours saying they don't celebrate Thanksgiving?

I must be one of the lucky few who got the skirt and crown on my first two taps of the theater (I only have 1), keep trying everyone it will come lots of time left, I just got the cauldron yesterday and still want that spooky tree! I am going to keep planting corn and going on adventures to help with the community goals I hope everyone else does too, even lower level players, every collection helps!!

I like the idea of celebrating holidays not celebrated here in the USA because I would be learning about other cultures and customs. Also I've started doing adventures and planting corn since my depletion in supplies last week. I'm still short on silver though but sugar has been produced in abundance so I can contribute to the final community prize again. We seem to be really working at a crawl now but I believe we can achieve our goal in time.

Just wanted to add, Thank you TL for the great prizes! I love the fact that the hayrick, hay ride, scarecrow and Haunted Hall are in correct scale and look nice! I love the potions that the cauldron drops- what a fun prize!

We don't celebrate Halloween in Australia either but I am loving this event for the challenge and the fun of it, not to mention the fantastic prizes. (I even bought real candy cones on the internet to see what they were like. I think I'm now a diabetic!!)
How about an Australia Day event? We'll throw another prawn on the barbie for ya and the whole kingdom could be girt by sea.

Also, I don't know if you were here last year, but they did a Thanksgiving event last year and probably will do one this year. :) So, totally worth it.

ETA: Thanksgiving was when we got the Harvest Pergona, which is super pretty and useful.

I agree! I have the Pergola and a full set of Thanksgiving animals. My turkey-cow plays regular games of "Where's Waldo" when he hides out in hard-to-spot places in my kingdom, and my neighbours try to find him. At present, though, he's cowering with the rest of the herd 'cos Cownt Dracula freaks him out!! ;).

But I love the idea of celebrating other days from around the world. I'm definitely up for Australia Day, and we could burn effigies of the baron on Guy Fawkes day (5 November). Similar baron effigies could be beheaded on a mock-guillotine for Bastille Day (14 July). Daffodils and dragons should feature on March 1st for St David's day (Wales) and then Thurston could chase the dragons off the daffodils on April 23 to mark St George's day (England). Thurston would then retire to the tavern to prepare himself for the Oktoberfest!!! The possibilities are endless! :D:D:rolleyes:

Loved the Halloween event and I'll keep collecting to help with the community prize. I would also enjoy celebrating other countries holidays. Since this is Castle story - what are some of the holidays & festivals that were actually celebrated back then? May Day? The 12 Days Of Christmas? Being in the USA my knowledge of castle history is lacking but I would love to learn!

I think it would be good to include other countries holidays. Of course a bunch are celebrated by others Halloween, Christmas, Valentines, New Year. What about Easter? Guy Fawkes and Divali? I don't 'celebrate' Halloween by going trick or treating I'm in the UK and it's only really started in the last 20 years or so. I missed the boat by a few years. In fact this timed event is the first time I have gone trick or treating. I think I would enjoy learning more about Thanksgiving and other countries holidays.

I love Halloween so much I am thinking of leaving my spooky village up for a while. I decorate at home for Halloween and I love to leave those up for a few days as well. Lol. But, I took all my pyre festival goodies down right away though, so who knows. We need the space that's for sure.

Based on what we've achieved so far I wouldn't expect us to get the tree til Monday. I'm keeping mine up as every town has a spooky type house which doesn't disappear on November 1st. Christmas on the other and is a different story and I will figure that one out once I know what the event brings. I'm assuming they'll be an event of sorts.

What happened to the rest of Halloween? Last I remember everyone was making their costumes and we have them all the pieces and sent them off to get dressed after agreeing that Griselda was just dressing as an evil witch for the party, not that she had become evil. Am I correct in assuming that the party is done as far as we are concerned once we told veryone tht Griselda is not really an evil witch, just dressed as one for Halloween? Was the party done while the rest of us were collecting pumpkins for the Event prizes?

So we aren't going to go trick or treating after we went through all the trouble of making costumes for everyone? Did I miss something here? Please excuse my misunderstandings, but at my age and physical comdition I confuse easily.

I thought we were having the World Wide Halloween Event that is the most awesome since I began playing Castle Story, but I thought we were also continuing the storyline with the Halloween Costumes for those who were far enough along to continue the storyline. So last week we got everyone all dressed up and we are done? That is it?

I have been done with the personal part of the Community Event since before last week's costume update. I guess I must have been the only one who expected something to happen after dressing everyone, but I am just waiting for the last Community prize to drop? Is that correct?

Do I have it correct that the Community Halloween Event is what our Halloween celebration consists of after all that costuming in the storyline? We are just waiting for the last Community Prize to drop and those of us who have finished the personal part of the World Halloween Event, and who finished last week's costuming release, are all done with Halloween?

TL, can you confirm for me, a bit slower than some sorry, that we can safely store the Halloween paraphernalia to make room for continuation of the main storyline that if I remember correctly we left off with a bunch of building materials for fairy stuff?

I don't want to jump the gun and store the Halloween stuff if we are going to need it for the storyline, but if we are done with any mention of Halloween in the storyline, and Halloween is over except for the last Community Prize drop, I could use this next week to try to deal with the shortage of room in my Kingdom.

Sorry to be redundant TL, and this is a really awesome event, so if it is over as far as anything I do I can happily move on, but I am as I say a bit slower than some, and I want to make sure I understand this correctly. Can you comfirm again that the entire Halloween storyline is completed, and we are simply waiting for those who need the time to finish up collecting pumpkins for the prizes in the Community Event?

I sometimes need to be told things twice, sorry. No matter what, thanks TL for this most awesome Event! I am thrilled that the old Castle Story artistic integrity was followed in even the smallest details of this well thought out event! I will be using some of the Halloween items because they fit nicely with my kingdom setup, and I am sure that when we get more room I will be using some of the decorations because everything will certainly have a place in my kingdom in the future.

Thanks for giving me attractive items that are neither neon colored nor sitting in slime. I realize that others have different decorating goals for their kingdoms, but I want to thank you for the break from neon and slime because I don't personally find them attractive. I am sure that when we return to the fairy storyline we will return to the bright colors and outsized decor as well because that is an integral part of the storyline but I appreciate the break from it and a return to scale for the Halloween Event.

Thanks TL! You made Halloween the best holiday this year for me! :D

If TL doesn't celebrate any more holidays this year, this Event and the obvious work that went into bringing it to us, has made me happy for the rest of the year at least, Thanks!

Please clear this up for me if possible, thanks! Sorry I am so easily confused.
