Just to clarify, the final reward for this chain is 1 Winter Bakery. You will get this item regardless of whether or not you purchased any Bakeries from the Market.

Ooo I would love that and sweets and cake after all you bake a gingerbread house and it gets filled and covered with sweets.

Thank goodness it doesn't need faerie supplies, I'm still working to get 10 of everything to build their workshop!
I've been so swamped getting holiday gifts out in the mail that I haven't had a chance to even visit my kingdom until now. So thankfully can just wait to collect from everything in case it's part of the new crafting building quest :)

Whoo! Gingerbread men and hot chocolate like last year.
Polaris North was mentioned too and the holiday feast.
Handy as I already have some unused resources from last year as I never got to finish the reindeer stable. :)

This year, at level 50 and all goals done, and 100 sugar made already I'm more than ready.

By the way you have to "collect" the hot chocolate. I had 21 in my inventory left over from another quest and I still have to collect it from my cottages.

Same goes for the gingerbread. I already have some, but I need to bake 4 more.

I also have a lot of unused resources from last year, but I can't use hot chocolates from then. I had 15 in store, and they're not counting! Hope that's not the case with everything. Oh well, 3 extra cottages out of storage again!

I only had 2 hot chocolates. They were already counted in my kitchen for the holiday feast ingredients before I collected from the cottage. So while we have to craft/collect from new I'd say we'll have to make a few feasts to go to Polaris North.

To lower level players..I'd suggest you plant 50:50 wheat and sugar cane now to prepare for making sugar and flour for the gingerbread men. And keep collecting from those chickens!

I've been maxed on beams and blocks for ages. I didn't remember cottages were so easy to make...9 more coming up :)

reliquary
12-18-14, 12:23 PM
So I guess the questions are...

1. Can we have more than 2?......before I go and gem buy it I'd like to know if I can just build 2:)

2. Will it be a permanent? Or will it just make Xmas items?

I've been maxed on beams and blocks for ages. I didn't realize cottages were so easy to make...9 more coming up :)

lol - I only brought my total up to 5. The thought was that in 4 hours I am halfway there and in another 4 hours, completed. BUT... it seems it is actually a rare drop. So I may use up the rest of my beams and blocks and get 10 cottages down. And yes - I am SO glad I stocked up on beams and blocks. I was afraid I would max out on them before needing them lol. I still have 77 fancy beams and 88 fancy blocks if we need them for the bakery.

Also, I really like how the quest has a graphic in the goals menu showing how many steps there are total, and how far along we are (the dots on a line). A very helpful thing I hope they do in future quests as well. :)

What I found about Polaris North Adventure:

To Polaris North: Gingerbread x 3, Hot Chocolate x 3, Faerie Jars x 1 (8Hrs)
**Gingerbread: Flour x 1, Sugar x 1, Eggs x 5 (Kitchen, 30mins)
**Hot Chocolate: Milk x 5, Chocolates x 2 (Kitchen, 20mins)

12-18-14, 12:29 PM
Looking through my inventory, I have some Polaris logs and tiles, and some forever snow from last year.
Also holiday felt which was needed for 'seasonal buildings' I can't remember if that was the Chrismas events or thanksgiving.
If we need to make it again, we'd better get collecting wool from the sheep.
(Was it dyes we needed for it too? I can't remember)

I'm pretty sure that was from the summer event. The winter event required the Holiday Feast. I've already sent my knights out. We needed a holiday feast and something else. Sorry I didn't write what we needed down. But I'm pretty sure it was not a Faerie Jar.

I see the adventure in my Queen's Court now - it's 8 hours. :)

17405

:( I had SO hoped that after some of us complained after the Halloween event that it's not right that those of us who spent a significant amount of money to buy the barracks don't get to use them for what we would far and away MOST want to use them for - limited time quests - that they would have changed that by now. I am very sad they care so little about players investing money in their game that they continue to disenfranchise us this way. Correct me if I am wrong, but the main reason for people playing a free game to spend money on items in the game is to gain some sort of advantage - to save time or get extra chances for something. But the barracks don't help at ALL, EVER, when they would be most useful - for limited time quests / events. I highly recommend that all players who have not already wasted their money on the barracks NOT buy them. They are not only completely useless for what you would most want them for, but IMO, every time this situation comes up it's like a slap in my face, and a good reason to never spend any more money on this game. I wish I could get a refund on my insultingly useless barracks.

meme1098
12-18-14, 12:50 PM
You should then use your barracks for the regular adventures and your King's/Queen's keep for the limited time adventures. You're still at an advantage since others aren't able to do regular adventures during the limited ones.

What advantage? There is nothing to be gotten from regular adventures that helps me in any remotely significant way these days. I am not wanting for the building supplies they drop; there is no use whatsoever for boar pelts; I am generally maxed on sap, mermaid scales, truffles, prime cuts, and nearly so on silver, jewels & earth wisps. And a ninth overgrown bench or fourth pumpkin hutch would not do much to help me get ahead. The only thing the barracks would truly be useful for for all the players in a similar position to me, is adventures (at the usual 2x time) for limited time quests / events.

ETA: it is what it is, though, and i won't harp on it.

i agree.. disappointed that not all adventures are alike in both castle and baracks.
but baracks are also in the royal exchange at some point for 99 trade tickets.. so you do NOT have to buy with real money ;)

but baracks are also in the royal exchange at some point for 99 trade tickets.. so you do NOT have to buy with real money ;)
Lol, no sweetie, you're thinking of the tinker camp for 99 trade tix. Barracks is only a gem purchase.

Tinker camp is available for 99 trade tickets. Barracks have only ever been a gem building as far as I can remember.

P.S. Don't know why I bother, there is always someone who can type faster than me, lol.

So I guess the questions are...

1. Can we have more than 2?......before I go and gem buy it I'd like to know if I can just build 2:)

2. Will it be a permanent? Or will it just make Xmas items?

Inquiring minds really wanna know this info, please .... TL? Kooky? SpiritWind?

Hi everyone,

Time for another holiday update! This week your Kingdom will be busy preparing resources to build a new craft building! This week's update will start today 12/18 at 12 PM PST and will end on 12/29 at 12 PM PST. You must be level 26+ to access these Goals.


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^
GOAL INFORMATION

New building in Market: 750 gems. Winter Bakery - "craft kitchen recipes which require baking".

To Polaris North: 1 Holiday feast, 5000 coins
**Gingerbread: Flour x 1, Sugar x 1, Eggs x 5 (Kitchen, 30mins)
**Hot Chocolate: Milk x 5, Chocolates x 2 (Kitchen, 20mins)

Holiday Feast: 5 hot chocolate, 2 gingerbread, 10 milk 1 hour)

SpiritWind ~ I don't see hot chocolate in the kitchen menu anywhere. I think that recipe was from another time. As far as I can see, the only way to get hot chocolate is collecting it from cottages this go 'round.

And thanks so much for all you've done filling us in in the past it will not go forgotten <3

lol - I only brought my total up to 5. The thought was that in 4 hours I am halfway there and in another 4 hours, completed. BUT... it seems it is actually a rare drop. So I may use up the rest of my beams and blocks and get 10 cottages down. And yes - I am SO glad I stocked up on beams and blocks. I was afraid I would max out on them before needing them lol. I still have 77 fancy beams and 88 fancy blocks if we need them for the bakery.

Also, I really like how the quest has a graphic in the goals menu showing how many steps there are total, and how far along we are (the dots on a line). A very helpful thing I hope they do in future quests as well. :)

I, too, had only brought myself up to 6, as I had them left from last year, but being naxed on stone blocks and wooden beams, I thought, "Why not??"... and may have gone a little overboard. Maybe.

My kingdom is now home to 20 cottages.

Guess maybe I'll see if can max out on hot chocolate. Yum!!!
Seeing as I have 34 left from last year, I have a good head start. ;-)

So excited we get to build a bakery and I also like that they have indicated that the goal is clearly part of a series of goals with that graphic indicating our progression. Very straightforward.

Yes you can have more than 2 if you are level 26+, one from the Market and one through the Goals. If you are below level 26, you can only buy one through the Market. It will act as a second Kitchen, but will have less items than the Kitchen and mainly baked goods only.

Make a holiday feast. That will use up your gingerbread so you can make more and not have to spend gems. You do that twice and you'll finish the make gingerbread portion while waiting for your cottages to ripen.

lol - I only brought my total up to 5. The thought was that in 4 hours I am halfway there and in another 4 hours, completed. BUT... it seems it is actually a rare drop.

I found my cottages gave a guaranteed hot chocolate drop, so not a rare drop - did you find this too in the end?

Just to clarify, the final reward for this chain is 1 Winter Bakery. You will get this item regardless of whether or not you purchased any Bakeries from the Market.

The quest was designed to be difficult (This is nearly a 3rd kitchen!) but it is intended to be absolutely completable without buying any Bakeries with gems.

Tell you what, this goal is not for the faint-hearted or those who don't have an awful lot of time to spare. It's full on! Keep checking the first post for updates so you can prepare as much as possible in advance.

for eg, do you have enough blue and yellow dye? do you have enough wheat/flour and sugarcane/sugar to make cookies? do you have a fruit trade ready to go? do you have enough lemons (need 18) and oranges (need 24) and apples (need 30)?

permanently work. if you look at the list of what you can make in it on the first page, it is more than just these christmas goodies we're making now. The listing is complete.

Thanks dragon2046.

I may have missed this but is the bakery in the market for good, or will it disappear as an option to buy some time? I like the thought of it but not sure I want to spend 750 gems now when not knowing what else may require gems over the next few weeks.

Oh and do you get anything useful from Polaris? I sent an adventure off but now see it will be a while before I get to that step. I can either wait to collect until I need it, or just collect and send another one off later. But collecting now is only really worthwhile if you get a useful drop?

Any random/rare holiday goodies in there (like the scarecrow & hayride back at H'ween)?

I had holiday feasts left from last year and sent my knights out right away. As I read this list I knew it would be quite a while to wait so I went ahead and collected. Got a hide, sugar, 2 earth wisps, coins ?, and notice I was full of prime cut.

Do we have to finish the Polaris North quest before we are able to start crafting the materials for the next step? If I figured it right, it will take at least 2 days, or more, to craft everything needed, and there are still tasks to do after that.

Does anyone know how many gems it is to skip the apple cider? I have NO apple trees (or lemon trees for that matter)! I'd like to know if it'd be better to scrounge up gems to buy trees or just gem past those parts. Any and all suggestions are appreciated! Thanks


Well, I just noticed I had a gem sale. So I just broke down and bought the trees. At least it's a good investment.

we no longer trade the farmers

the congrats was for completing Step 2 Christmas Cookies

yes, there is a very time consuming questline mentioned in Post #1 with the link

But I thought maybe they had unlocked it for 1x only -
to do the step 3 part of the current quests.

for those that have not done that quest.you know, trying to let everyone participate?

:( I had SO hoped that after some of us complained after the Halloween event that it's not right that those of us who spent a significant amount of money to buy the barracks don't get to use them for what we would far and away MOST want to use them for - limited time quests - that they would have changed that by now. I am very sad they care so little about players investing money in their game that they continue to disenfranchise us this way. Correct me if I am wrong, but the main reason for people playing a free game to spend money on items in the game is to gain some sort of advantage - to save time or get extra chances for something. But the barracks don't help at ALL, EVER, when they would be most useful - for limited time quests / events. I highly recommend that all players who have not already wasted their money on the barracks NOT buy them. They are not only completely useless for what you would most want them for, but IMO, every time this situation comes up it's like a slap in my face, and a good reason to never spend any more money on this game. I wish I could get a refund on my insultingly useless barracks.

I cannot agree more, except 100 RP, the barrack is just sitting there in my queendom :(

Question:

I got the update yesterday-evening (Europe), started collecting the cottages and making gingerbread cookies. My knights we're not on adventure, so I checked, I saw The Polaris Adventure already listed and -yeah!- I had 2 feasts left from previous quest, so I send the knights out immediately. Then I went to bed.

9 hours later: I just collected from the knights, and received..... wisp and fur.... That's it (not even energy).....

???

When do the knights bring back building materials? Must I reach step 5 first?
But if so, why is it already listed in the Keep......?! Confusing!! Now I lost a feast....

I made my first cottage collection and got nothing yet the goal said I got one Hot Chocolate. I checked my inventory (via the Kitchen) and I already have 50 Hot Chocolates. So it seems you can't collect any more.

Uh oh. Sounds like the Polaris North adventure is only dropped common item? I sent one out already since I had 5 feast left from last year... now I wonder if I should bother collecting from it or wait till Step 5. Currently making the 5th cookies (+ a spare) for Step 2.

I sent out the fruits farmer trade already early on since my truffles were maxed out anyway. Same goes with fruits LOL.

Arggg...why must I pick up mushrooms one at a time for the fruit trade?! Before yesterday I was working on the Faerie Bridge and a potion from the greenhouse requires mushrooms so naturally I was quite low. After my 3rd boar kill this morning I finally decided to park one out of the way so I could devote more energy to mushrooms. The monster music adds to the frantic nature of a timed quest so my queendom has a frazzled feel about the place.

Stressed. I need 14 lemons, 4 apples, and 9 oranges. Thank you TL for an orange tree drop!; and the Halloween cow! If I didn't have that cow I wouldn't have any apples. Praying for a few more Apple drops please from my cool cow. Sent my nights on an adventure in hopes of an apple tree or a lemon tree or a few gems.

Not counting on Apple tree to drop, extremely rare but a few more gems...can buy a lemon tree. Just hate spending gems on that bc I was lucky in my other game and received 3 lemon so far, 1 orange (after 2 years of playing!) and bought an apple tree.

I have the Trade with the Fruit Farmers. Does the trade just need to be in the exchange or do I have to make the apple and cobbler pies to finish that quest line in order to move on in this one. AND I think I read a previous post that I may not have had to give up my stews and veggies to get that trade in the exchange in this quest. Is that right?

So do I need to make nthe pies? If so, I'm bummed. There goes all my fruit!

I like how TL designed the quests with the players would like to make one (or more) extra items as a keepsake of the quest. You have to make 5 items, so it doesn't matter whether you have 2 or 3 places to make them, you still have one slot left over, so you might as well make that extra item.

Stressed. I need 14 lemons, 4 apples, and 9 oranges. Thank you TL for an orange tree drop!; and the Halloween cow! If I didn't have that cow I wouldn't have any apples. Praying for a few more Apple drops please from my cool cow. Sent my nights on an adventure in hopes of an apple tree or a lemon tree or a few gems.

Not counting on Apple tree to drop, extremely rare but a few more gems...can buy a lemon tree. Just hate spending gems on that bc I was lucky in my other game and received 3 lemon so far, 1 orange (after 2 years of playing!) and bought an apple tree.

I have the Trade with the Fruit Farmers. Does the trade just need to be in the exchange or do I have to make the apple and cobbler pies to finish that quest line in order to move on in this one. AND I think I read a previous post that I may not have had to give up my stews and veggies to get that trade in the exchange in this quest. Is that right?

So do I need to make nthe pies? If so, I'm bummed. There goes all my fruit!

Hey Whidbey, not sure what you're referring to with the apple pie and orange cobbler, but we DO unlock the Trade with the Fruit Farmers craft in the Culinary Christmas questline, even if you haven't unlocked it yet via the regular quest. So if I understand your question correctly, you should be able to just move forward with Culinary Christmas without a problem :) All that's required for this questline is that you complete the "Trade with the Fruit Farmers" in the Royal Exchange once.

Thanks Glimmergate. I think the last goal for the trade with fruit farmers is to make the cobbler and apple pies. So we would still have to do all those steps to complete that quest line. But for this new one I could have skipped giving away food products and stew. Either way I have it now. Won't make the pies til I get some fruit trees to finish other quest tho.

Another question: I know it's a bit off topic but actually on topic if I need to purchase gems to buy trees for this quest.

Is their a link on how to pay for gems with an iTunes card. My sweet husband would not be too happy knowing I've spent gems on a game I love! Even tho he can by stuff like Lottery tickets. What the heck! Not fair! That's a whole other topic. Lol

A link on how to is appreciated. Thanks!

Is the cinnamon sticks supposed to show up in your inventory? I've gotten 20 replies that show up in my quest book but no cinnamon in inventory. Makes me nervous I won't be able to make the cider.

For those needing a last few apples, oranges, or lemons, you do get some of those fruit from the fruit trade. (I only received oranges and apples on this trade, didn't get to see how many though.) Although an awful lot of mushrooms for a couple of fruit.

WhidbeyPort : If you go to the iTunes store, and click on your account, there should be a "redeem" option where you can enter your gift card code. Once you have the gift card code entered in your iTunes account, you should be able to purchase your gems.

Weird question. I live in California, the time stamp for my previous post was 6:45 pm. It was actually 10:45 am. Why the difference if Team Lava is on the west coast? Just curious. Does it have anything to do with Storm8? (Is that the right name?)

I believe the posts show up with GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).

The cinnamon sticks don't show up in your inventory. If you look at your goal, you should see how many you've received. (Sometimes this doesn't show up right away, but if you force close the game and restart it, you should see them.)

Question pika squirrel ! What are the exact steps for 7 & 8? With the illustrations I'm quickly approaching the last two goals and I want to make sure I have all the supplies ready ty :cool:

Must be something wrong with my requests! Waited for 10 hours now ( was up at 5:30 ) since I sent my requests !!
Not a single one is showing up!
All I needed is 9 !
I sent 23 including Stormie ( the only one that showed up)
This is so annoying, and I was so frustrated just about now, I gemmed through the rest which still gave me my 40 Cinnamon sticks.
So if you want to gem this part you get the Cinnamon. No worries!

Again TL either there's something wrong and the system clog, or my neighbors aren't responding ( which I highly doubt) because yesterday I got 21 while today only 10 !!

Please TL , it is utterly frustrating to wait for others to repond in a timed event!

You can require these requests in not timed goals, but with timed events I feel it is done on purpose to make us spend gems and finish with this ridiculous part! FFRUSTRATING, and ANNOYING :( :mad:

I have an unfinished Reinder stable and kingdom inn from the last year event.
Is the polar adventure dropping, or will drop after we rget the correct step in the actual one, constuction materials so I can complete my poor buildings?

yes, I would also really like the opportunity to collect some more Polarian objects that would help me finish my reindeer stable - it doesn't seem too unreasonable to think that adventuring to Polaris ought to bring us some Polarian items back... (pretty please??!)

Edit: could someone tell me whether it's actually possible to complete an unbuilt reindeer stable (e.g. by buying the missing Polarian items at each stage with gems) (I already have 5 Polarian planks and 10 forever snow) or whether if I want a finished one I should just buy another one from the market with gems. If it is possible to complete the one I have (including the final step of putting the reindeer in there - which, looking at the old goal thread was at the time obtained from the Royal Exchange, so presumably no longer possible that way) how many gems will it cost (i.e. more or less than a new/completed stable)? Thanks.

Yes, finishing a seasonal building with gems past its quest/season is the ONLY way to finish it as far Im aware, I doubt youll get more logs on polaris adventure

It's unfortunate, but sending any Polarian adventures before you have the goal to do so does not give anything worthwhile.
No energy either.
I felt like I should make a 5 or 6 extra feasts but they are unnecessary.......at least until next year:)

Yes, I suspect you're right. I guess my main question then is how many gems? And whether it'd be cheaper to just buy the already completed one from the market.

Thats something only you can know I guess, I already finished mine, just compare the "build now" with gems with the market one

During our last timed quest I sent requests to all my neighbors, I have about 120. I kept getting responses for the following 5 days. One of which was from fianc? (on the 4th day), he said he had just recieved the request. :confused: I myself have seen numerous requests which are way over 15h old. I check into CS about every 2 hours. All this leads me to believe, the system is functioning very weirdly. And I tend to flood everybody just to be sure all may go well, and sometimes I feel bad about it. :o

Yes, as 95% of the quest requirements, you only get credit for finishing that part when you COLLECT from the building, not when you send it to craft

Can someone tell me what steps 7 and 8 require to complete. I don't see anything written in them steps in post #1. Sorry if this has been answered already, I've read every post but didn't see steps 7 and 8 and what they require.

Invite sent :D Welcome neighbor, I visit daily, you don't have to return the favor :) but please be aware I have already established nbrs with whom I exchange gifts :)

Welcome to you also. :) No problem regarding the gift exchange. My list is long for returns...they get one eventually but sometimes it can be a few days.

You are definitely right about the weird system as I sent 4 hours ago 2 new requests to two neighbors on line and they were waiting for it, but nothing ! they never got my requests nor did I receive anything on my news feed or goal counter!
I am starting to believe in that conspiracy theory of "Frustration leads to Gemming these last requests" which by all means I did, but I am still fuming because I feel cheated ! :(

Last step and your bakery will be in your inventory.

Wow that was expensive ! Well maybe next time someone else can "take one for the team" lol. After u get your bakery all holiday items are gone. Polaris north adventure is gone also. I checked 5 cottages and did not get anymore hot chocolates either. Just FYI for all those collectors out there :)

Thank you dragon2046, how awesome that you have guided us through this event. Merry Christmas.
