It's really cute! At least in the shop. Haven't looked to see if any of my neighbors have it yet. I'm pretty much never low on any of the items it drops, though, so I doubt I will be shelling out 160 gems just for the cuteness of it. Hope to see it in a neighboring kingdom soon, though. :)

Castloninian
11-13-14, 12:07 PM
Huh? So only if you buy that thing will you get some new quests? I don't want to buy it, as I have no need for whatever it drops. No quests came up so I guess that's it again for me this week. Glad I'd saved my adventure, two wizard schools, one energy trade :)

I didn't get any quests either. I used gems to speed up the skunkupine house but I didn't get any quests just some sugarcane. I think it sounds like it drops the same things as the skunkupines. As far as the quests I don't think there is any.

This does sound like there's supposed to be associated quests with today's update, not that the associated quests were previous ones. Hence the confusion from players expecting quests today. However, it does appear that today's update is the new skunk house in the market and that's it. Can you verify? Thanks so much!

It is 12:25 PDT, which is TL time and mine. No quests yet for me either, just the gem item in market. I am done with all quests, have been since before Halloween, so it should trigger. Maybe need to hit the right house? I try not to touch anything on Thursday mornings.

LOL - that is a VERY good point. I don't need any of the things it drops. A few months ago, LONG before I unlocked the Plume Hive adventure, they might have been useful.

Now, if it dropped faerie building supplies, bonbons, teacakes and jewelled hairpins, the things everyone who is at the stage of the game this quest supposedly is active, THEN I'd consider buying it.

I got the "an unfortunate smell" quest and I think it's probably triggered by visiting Ivy's Hut (and I have finished every goals in the goal book already before this one so I fulfilled whatever pre-requisites this one needed). No I didn't buy the 160 gems item cuz I don't need those drops.

11-13-14, 12:36 PM
This is the long awaited "Update"

Seems like it gives you what Pepe drops. Not much help to those of us who don't need Pepe's drops. I quit clicking on Pepe long ago because I am full of items he drops. This is a cute but expensive item. Might be worth 5 gold at most in my opinion. For those who have extra hems and are at an early enough stage of the game where Pepe's drops are important, things might look differently. It might be worth it. I am way past that point. This looks like the Update those in the mid levels wnted. Enjoy if you can use it because it does only take one square amd is cute!

Am I the only one disappointed, especially after the announcement that we would be given Sneak Peeks about updates? Probably.

To me this is more of an addition to the Market. Apparently there is something of a quest, but it looks like I missed it. Yawn.

Good thing I didn't add gems before the "Update ". This is a good lesson to me. I will make sure not to add gems until after I see if the Update applies to me. I don't even have a quest book. Bring back Sister, Sister!

It could be worse. You could have just used up all your energy (including a bonus 50 from pink ali!!!!) and started to cook two magic cements in the potion shop.

Sorry, but that is really funny. Not super glues, not builder's pastes, not even architect's pastes - magic cements. Like you said, it doesn't matter because it's not limited time. But, sorry. And I'm glad you can laugh about it, too. :)

Harvesting short-time crops, and collecting from flowers are what I usually do to try to trigger skunkupines.

QUESTION FOR TL
If I pay the 20 gems to skip the "Get 5 skunkupine essence" in my book, will it give me 5 skunkupine essences in my inventory ... Or would I then be forced to spend 100 add'l gems to purchase each essence in the potion shop so I can make the 5 desmelling potions?

(I'm struggling here over the decision to finally being forced to kill off Mr. Purple G! HELP!)

belbar22

Ok so just harvested a whole field of corn. Got 3 skunks and each 1 dropped a skunk essence. Just need to wait for more energy to harvest the next field.

11-13-14, 12:52 PM
My gem poverty has actually paid off. I probably would have bought it but I only have 140 gems right now (so if it were just 20 cheaper TL you would have got me :cool:). I have another couple of hours for a builders paste to finish up so I do thank you for this not being timed.

I could use a restock of corn and wheat anyway so bring on the skunkupines!

SpiritWind00
11-13-14, 12:54 PM
In the past when we've had goals like this and we get to the end, there is a gem reward which you get whether or not you have already purchased the new building. I don't know what's coming up, but I am hopeful that those who have already bought it will not be disadvantaged in any way. It certainly is a cute building!

Let's keep an open mind, find those pesky skunks and see where it takes us. ;)

If this is for players 13 and up, are they talking about ages or levels? Fellora plants are only available to levels 31 and up. I just recently leveled to 31 and planted some to get a jump on dark seeds. If this is for levels 13 and up, do they have different goals that do not require Fellora plants?

I think the 13 is a typo.

Yeah, there was a goal to get some gems after buying a magic fruit tree. I had bought one months ago when I had no idea there was an upcoming goal to buy one. Anyway, the goal turned out to be to collect from the magic fruit tree to get the gem reward and happily, I got it no problem. Hopefully this is the same. :)

Harvested wheat and corn but no skunks.

Used two skunk traps and got an essence drop from each of them.

I've harvested 65 wheat so far & not a single skunkupine. They've run and hid behind Greseldas castle, I think.

The first Goal is "An Unfortunate Smell". If you have the two Goals mentioned in the first post complete and you are above level 30, you will be able to access the Goals. The item is still available to players who are on level 13+.

But no one at level 13 is even close to those quests and it's available to them, so ...huh?? I'm missing something. Lol

I'm level 44 and have only just unlocked the Glimmergate very misleading that a level 13 player can be involved in this. The only thing I can think of it's similar to the Fortune Teller Tent. Quests periodically. Gem building purchase. Hence why I can buy it but haven't got anywhere near plume hive. Confirmation?

Gem Items are not a requirement of the game. These are Optional purchases available at specific levels.

To receive these goals (also not required to advance in the game) you must meet the requirements first.

Hi Folks,
I'm finding that the skunks are not appearing as usual. I have used over 75 energies on flowers, corn, tomatoes and only saw one skunk from first 15 corn harvests. The skunks seem to be less frequent. I am now maxed out on these resources so I don't know if that is a factor. Seems that others are reporting similiar problems. I wonder if there is a problem .... hope that someone in TL will look into this.

Since the goals aren't timed, I decided not to rush, I am happy to have my Goals' book back :D

This decision came after I used an Alicorn, 40 energy ( not to mention the other 40 that were accumulating) tending to flowers and planting corn/ tomatoes ( which both am maxed out on ) and not a single skunku in sight!

Therefore, I am going through my daily chores, in my Queendom as usual, preparing for the next goals in line ( Plume Hive Adventure ).

When the Skunkupines show up, I will get what I need.

Happy new update everyone and good luck :)

Meanwhile prepare for the plume hive adventure, get out 2 markets and don't collect from Ivy's hut until the next goal pops up. Unfortunately, I've only got 1 market out, stored the rest, collected from Ivy's hut and sent Knights out on an adventure earlier on when no goals came up.

I thought I did but when I checked I didn't have for the Plume Hive so thanks to whoever that was!).

Nope. No update for me then. :( oh well looks like Greseldas going to get her statue.

For all this years updates except holiday ones I have not gotten them

The only goals I have are

Mystic ailcorn need a stupid horn still

Trials and tributes need to exchange and expand more. And allergic to light

Need the blade of light, got hilt first try

But the blade of darkness took me from the time goal was released to just 3 weeks ago getting it, sent an adventure to glimmer gate at least 4 times a week, every week

This time they have only been to glimmer gate twice in 2 weeks, very low on glimmer dust, have trove but can't get 25 dust very often

So do I need to complete this goal before new updates?

I don't know if this has been posted yet. If I am saying something already covered, please excuse me. I don't have the energy to read all of the comments.

For those like me ho get to the point where we are taken to the Market and given the option to buy the Skunkihouse, but don't want to spend 160 gems to make 20 which is the reward for completing the quest, this is timed. In five days it appears that the last step will time out. So, you are not required to buy the item if you choose not to.

Apparently you will not receive the 20 gems for completion, and it will dissappear from your Quest Book when the five days runs out, but thankfully TL is not requiring anyone to spend gems to finish this quest. For those who do buy the cute little building, your true cost will be 140 gems since you will get 20 for completing the quest.

You may do as I will be doing and wait it out. It is cute but my Inventory is full of stuff I will never need. I was concerned at first that I would be required to buy the item to finish the quest which is true if I want the gems for finishing it. But I am not required to finish it. I am okay with this TL, and I appreciate that spending gems is not mandatory.

It seems a bit unfair to me that I will not get the gems for finishing the quest unless I buy the item, but I would rather give up the 20 gems I don't get for finishing, in lieu of spending 160 gems for a bauble I don't need. Life is not always fair, but that doesn't mean that what seems unfair is necessarily wrong. It is just the way it is.

Again folks, it is not required that you spend gems for this. It will time out. You do have a choice.

I was trying to avoid at all cost corn, cause I've banned talking or planting corn for the month of November in my kingdom to try and get over the candy corn event (you know this is very tongue in cheek right!). Sadly I have to plant corn now. Can someone pass the tissues.

Oh I hear you SpiritWind00. As I was planting the corn I felt a familiar ache in my shoulder radiating down to my elbow. By the time the corn was ready to harvest, my hand, in memory of the dread candy corn event, shriveled into a claw like apparatus. I had to collect with the back of my knuckles. I don't think my hand will ever fully recover or forgive me for that event.

It's like a band aid, rip it off quickly. I almost maxed my corn stock within a few days of the Halloween event, saved a few spaces for Pepe to drop me a few.

Anyway enjoy the quest. I don't have enough gems to get the skunkhouse just yet and nowhere near the plume hive. But I have done a few of my own quests, upgraded a few buildings, including 2 deep mines. I love Thursday nights, if I don't get a quest I make some of my own.

From what has been posted already, you do the goals and then get the option to buy the skunk house with some gems as the reward if you buy the house. If you don't buy the house, the option to buy is timed and you don't get gem reward. The house will only be available with gems, just a bit cheaper by doing goals first.

Later Kingdom neighbors.

Later, you wont be missed.

If you chose to buy the Faerie skunkhouse, then Ivy says "Theground is way too hard and cold for such gentle creatures. Let's line it with something soft. We can also make toys for Pepe to chew on that smell like fish - I bet he'll love them. "


Chew toys are made of four hides and one fish.
Chew toys (4) are made at the workshop. You also line the floor with something soft (20 wool)

The other quest line is the skunkhouse.

"I have never understood Ivy's affection for this creature, but the fact that she cares for it is undeniable. The beast's new home should give her much joy".

Collect from a Faerie Skunkhouse. Reward:20 gems and 5 xp.

If the goal isn't timed patience will see its completion. Seriously, gem buying is very much an option with this game. I will say that instant gratification is lovely but in the case of CS you're barking up the wrong tree looking for it. Unless you're rich. And they give away gems when the 'play our games!' goals appear. 30 for installation, 15 for subsequent related. And that's per game.

Is my conclusion correct: after buying the Faerie Skunkhouse quests 4, 5 and 6 only give coins and xp as reward?

And when I choose to buy the Skunkhouse but won't do the quests afterwards (I'm level 50 and have more than enough coins already, so have no use for more coins and xp) these quests remain in the goal-menu?

Later, you wont be missed.

I stopped browsing after a couple pages and people are complaining more than being grateful, Im done speeding up and posting the quests to help the "community" (Im still going to do it mind you, just wont share it), good thing theres more people like me but with way more patience/empathy
Thank you mikado86. I really appreciate all of you that "help" de community, post the quests and give advise. By the way, no one is forcing you to buy gems. I do it when I want it.:o
:rolleyes: FREE ADVISE : download other games you can get "free" gems or send adventures .

its a cute house but I'm not overly excited about it. what we [I]really[I] need is another source for glimmer fragments/shards! Thats something i would spend gems on! I know we have greselda's castle and the gate, but those can't really be relied upon. and they don't produce enough to keep up with the demand. We need something that consistently and more frequently drops fragments and shards

I've had my gate up and running about a week now and I've only once not received fragments or shards.
I think I may get the house when I have enough gems I was hoping for a game to play today, alas it was not to be, will have to wait.

I harvested 48 wheat and got 4 skunkupines. The other one came from Pepe himself. I just can't take planting corn just yet!

Corn gave nothing ( got nausea while collecting corn lol ) it is wheat that gave me 3 and pepe 1 and used 1 Skunkupine trap :)

Thanks Liloze and Lavendar, those tissues came in handy.

5 skunks done! 2 from tomatoes, 1 from purple flowers and 2 (ironically) from corn.

Great :) Corn gave me nothing ( except nausea ) lol
Got 3 from wheat, one from Pepe and by the last one I felt really impatient so I used a skunkupine trap lol

Getting the Fairie Skunkhouse is optional. If you have "No Place Like Home" and "Young, Wild, and Free" completed and are over level 30, you will see "An Unfortunate Smell" in your Kingdom Goals list. You will eventually get to the Goal "The Faerie Skunkhouse" where you will need the Faerie Skunkhouse. If you want, you can purchase it and there are a few more Goals associated with the item. If you choose not to buy it, you can just let "The Faerie Skunkhouse" expire after 5 days.

This Faerie Skunkhouse is available for players level 13+. But only players level 30+ will see the Goals. Hope this clears up the confusion. If you're still confused on any part of this update, please let us know!

I bought the skunkhouse and collected from it after completing stage 3 of the quest by doing the plume adventure. Then the goals vanished and I have no way of doing stages 4, 5 and 6. I've done everything correctly and in order and I have reloaded my game. Still no goals so this is a problem I would like solved. I am using an iPad and have not had this problem before.

I really don't understand the purpose of doing these goals if you are not buying the skunkhouse. However, I don't mind doing them as I have no goals left and I like the fact there are some new drops and materials to craft.

A question though:
I have got my five skunkupine essences and have not yet given the five desmelling potions because I am planning to stock up a bit. I am still getting more essences from skunkupines. Will those stop dropping as soon as you give the 5 potions or is it a new permanent drop?

Thanks

I've gotten skunkupines since giving the desmelling potions and they no longer drop any essence now. So technically, it could be a permanent drop as long as you don't finish giving the 5 potions.

the Desmelling potion disappears from the Potion Shop craft list when the goal is completed.
the amount you can inventory is 99 (I did make extras, just in case. lol)

I just finished the adventure and visits to ivy and the market. The goal came up to buy the house. Purchased and placed.

Once it was placed the next goal for the chew toys came up through my goal book and dialogue started. I did not collect from the house, it started immediately. I still have to finish goal 3 by collecting, but goal 4 has begun already.

Just confirming: after you've finished the plume adventure (and if you don't have this adventure available in your castle you have to progress more though game) the option to buy the house come up and is timed.

No the time is for you to buy the house if you don't buy through these 5 days the time runs out, that is all.
I bought the Skunkhouse, collected from it after 6 hours, which triggered the rest of the goals.

PS. buying the house is optional, the only thing is that you get 20 gems back IF you buy it during those 5 days and collect from it.

I really don't need any of things that The Skunhouse drops, but am a collector,
I like to have every building from every goal :) yep addicted to CS :o

Being a completionist? I'm a few gems shy of the requisite 160 so I'm deferring this quest line until after the new year on the off chance more useful buildings come along during the holidays. However if nothing better has turned up by the end of the year I'm going to sink the gems into this building instead of a gem trap.

Yes, I use to be one of those but had to let the title go when I chose not to get the fortune teller tent. Plus I have so much stuff and so many buildings in storage. I don't have the room for anything that doesn't have usefulness. Especially at 160 gems. I start panicking if my kingdom finances drop below 700 gems.

I'm still wondering if furs and rat tails are needed in huge supply. As of right now I haven't noticed a regular lack of them. I sometimes forget if there are special trades etc that call for items so asking in all seriousness.

I am also not buying the skunk house,160 gems just seems rather expensive to me.
I cannot recall ever being low on these items,however I guess for those who do have problems with supply,it may be a good investment.

Only reason I can remember would be a couple of the recent updates required quite a bit of fur. If you do a lot of the trades that require either fur or tails, it might be worth it. I think this is an enhancement for the lower level players where the furs and tails are a real issue.

11-16-14, 08:48 AM
I've collected from it a few times

*i bought it before the goals, and after I got my 20 gems no goal to make chew toys:(*

And it has dropped 2x fur, 2x bone,2x COrN!?...but nothing else.

It is by far more reliable than the new Spooky Tree that drops X1 bone and fur occasionally.

Once again, why do we have 2 new items that drop things most of us here do not need?
I guess a, say lv 20 player, would buy the skunkhouse early on...then, many months later recieve these goals to get the 20 gems back?!?...um ok?:confused:

It's the weekend where TL staff are... I have already posted that this issue has been reported. Please be patient. To finish the last goal only takes about a few hours once you have placed the house if you decided to purchase it. So once it's fixed you'll be up to date in no time.

You do not have to buy the house, it is timed and optional and is not required to advance the core story. As soon as either myself or Kooky hear back we will let you know.

fino212
11-17-14, 03:18 AM
I'm not sure if I've misunderstood this but I thought if you don't buy the skunk house then you don't get to continue the rest of the quest line as surely you can't line the floor of the house with wool if you don't actually have the house. Some of you are saying you're going to wait the 5 days for that part to expire then do parts 4,5 and 6 but I'm sure you won't get that option unless you've bought the house and the quest line will instead just finish. I could be wrong but that's how I read it anyway

Absolutly nothing.......but u have wasted the resources making the de smeller stuff.
Now I'm not Spock, but this is silly and not like other gem only building quests...they don't have us making stuff for a building that is an optional buy.
Not quite logical to me:confused:

That goal will just expire. Not completing that goal, will not interfere with completing other goals.

I couldn't resist either. I don't need its drops, but it's so cute.

I think of it like Greselda's Fountain. I bought them both for gems with a small rebate, and they are both just there to look good. :)

I have plenty of gems, it just seems such a waste as I am always maxed on all the drops and I am always short of space.

This update bites!! You have to purchase gems if you don't have enough!! Just another way too sucker people into buying gems. Then the quest with defeating the skunkupines and making the Essence and traveling to the plume hive acts like if you complete it and get the adequate supplies you may be able to build one out of the faerie supplies. NOT!! This bites!!!!
Buttercup;1001606']Hi everyone!

This week's update is a new gem item available for purchase in the Market, the Faerie Skunkhouse! This pint-sized home for Ivy's favorite pet drops Rat Tails, Fur, Creep Teeth, and various crops that young skunkupines like to eat.

The item is available to players 13 and up, and the associated quests are available to players who have completed quests No Place Like Home (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?71521-Castle-Story-7-31-14-Update-Plume-Hive) and Young, Wild, and Free (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?64259-Castle-Story-Update-01-16-2014-Pet-Skunkupine). As usual, the update will be live at 12PM PST today.

Enjoy!

You do not have to buy the skunkhouse and do that goal to complete the other goals. If you do not want to buy it, that goal will expire.

I am sorry, but I guess a missed a post, what is the glitch?

11-17-14, 03:16 PM
The glitch is that if you bought the house *before* you got the quest to do so(given 20 gems) it does not follow thru to give the chew toy quests.
There are many posts here to where this has happened, myself included.

Kinda ironic tho that many low level players would buy the skunkhouse many months before the first quests emerge(plume hive completion etc.) and the next few quests in *this* questline would not be given....lol

I bought my house after prompted to do so, and still had the glitch. Everything stopped after I collected from the house. No chew toy quest here either.

I got and finish the chew quest before I could collect from the house. So far no glitch on my side. Must be lucky for once, well I follow the quest line and did nothing in advance.

Spiritwind stated a few pages back that she has reported it to TL. I'm sure they're working on it.

After reading here about the timer quest, I am saving mine for just a little while. I did not turn in my last Desmelling Potion even though I have crafted it and am going to wait for a few more gems to come in (at 144 right now-come on purple cow!). I don't really need the kind of drops it does but it is cute and poor Pepe could use a shelter. And maybe when I get to it, any bugs will be worked out too.

Oh, as a result of stopping where I did now I am inadvertently stacking Skunkupine Essence in my inventory with every skunkupine that crops up.

Still debating if I should spend 140 gems for the skunkhouse when I don't need *any* of these drops (they are all maxed out or near-max)... might be better off investing in a Living Tree...

I'm just letting it expire. I don't need any of the drops either.

Totally agree! We should be warned that we will get nothing for our efforts except a 12% discount on a gem item!

;) We were told it was a gem purchase update..... Extract from Post 1:

"This week's update is a new gem item available for purchase in the Market, the Faerie Skunk House!"

Up until the option to buy the house, it is main storyline, so at some stage you will need to do that part. I collected a few more drops from the skunks too (the collector in me couldn't help it!)
