The Flower Frenzy Event!
(prepared by SW)

Tips and Notes:
*Starts: 03/12/2015 12PM PDT - Ends: 04/03/2015 12PM PDT
*Available on android version 1.2.5.2g - the counter will only show if you are this version of the game.
*New in Market: 60,000 coins for an iron fence door in the market under featured. (Tip: the metal gate fits with any wall ONLY if you have it facing SW on the kingdom board. Not sure if that makes sense, but if it doesn't fit with your walls, rotate it.) THIS WAS A BUG AND HAS BEEN FIXED...
*The total number of tulips is updated as soon as the Tulips drop, not when they are collected.
*If your dragon topiary changes spots, try putting in and out of storage.


Where can I get tulips from?
Crops: Corn, Wheat, Tomato, Sugar Cane, Hot Pepper, Strawberry, Carrot, Cabbage, Glimmerbulb, Cocoa, Fellora Plant
Building: Conservatory
Beasts: Skunkupine, Fangbeast, Glimmer Troll, Glimmer Golem, Dire Boar
Flowers: Iceland Poppy Patch, Talinum Auranticum, White Trillium, Blue-Flower Penstemon, Rocket Larkspur, Red Trillium, Multi-Color Hedge, Faerie Flowerbed
Castle Garden


Help! The tulips aren't going into my inventory!
You will find there is a counter on the top right of screen. All tulip counts go there. The flowers are not placed in your inventory.

Help! I can't see the upgrade button?
if you do not see the upgrade button, click somewhere else on the board and then click on the garden. The buttons should return. Force close if still not showing.

Will the tulips drop even if the crop or flower is maxed out?
YES! You'll also get the xp and coins (for crops) if you're maxed on both as normal.

Best Drop Rates
1. Conservatory - have as many as you can as they have a guaranteed drop of 2 per collection.
2. Beasts - if you have the Troll Sparing Pit, collect from this as you'll always get a troll to fight. Make sure you clear off any other beasts first or a troll will not spawn.

Materials for a Conservatory
6 fancy beam, 6 fancy blocks, 4 super glue, 15 red petals
*** You may need to sell other royal buildings if you want to build more conservatories! Maximum was reported at 15, but there have been further reports of players with more than 15, so it's possible.***
Tip from player: 12 Conservatories. 2 hours per collection!! 9 Collections a day, 12 building giving 2 tulips each time for 22 days is 4752 tulips! 8 collections a day is still 4224! Even easier: 8 collections a day, 10 conservatories, 22 days is still 3520! Good luck...

Does the level of your conservatory have any impact on the number of tulip drops?
No, any level will drop 2 at each collection. All levels have a 2 hour collection.

What to do with excess petals?
build a conservatory, upgrade a conservatory, make dye, build a theatre (Link to Building Guide (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?76392-Castle-Story-Building-Guide&p=1025452&viewfull=1#post1025452)), make floral glow!


Where do I get Gloves from?
Castle Garden only

Where do I get Clippers from?

Castle Garden only

My Dragon Topiary moves to Different Spots

Try putting it in and out of storage

Hi all, quick update and I'll put this in post 2 as well... I sent a question through to TL about the Tea Time goal questioning whether or not it needs to be done and its purpose given it doesn't reward any tulips. This goal is basically your choice whether you complete it or not and won't affect any other progress in the event.

So, if you'd rather use your milk elsewhere, that's fine. If you've already completed it, that's ok too. I haven't heard whether or not there are any additional goals this week either.

Any unfinished goals will disappear when the event expires as is normal practice.




Thanks for your feedback! The rewards from this event are not related to the previous wedding themed update. The prizes you receive from this event are flower related. Once you fully upgrade the Castle Garden, it becomes a beautiful garden with flowers added to them. The Wrought-Iron items all have flowers on them. So you're still getting floral themed items! :)

In the second post, there is a list of flowers that do drop Tulips for the event. Please keep in mind that you won't receive Tulips from every collection. Here's a list of flowers that will drop Tulips:

Flowers: Iceland Poppy Patch, Talinum Auranticum, White Trillium, Blue-Flower Penstemon, Rocket Larkspur, Red Trillium, Multi-Color Hedge, Faerie Flowerbed


Sorry for the confusion. :( I meant they weren't related to those updates as these items are obtained from the event that is going on and isn't part of the wedding storyline.

The Castle Gardens will drop Coins and XP after the event is over. Also, we have forwarded your feedback on having more items that drop items instead of decorations.

THE ABOVE QUOTE IS NOW OUT OF DATE AS ON 2ND APRIL THIS HAS BEEN POSTED BY PIKASQUIRREL: (emphasis added by SW)

Hey everyone,

We'd like to thank you for all of the feedback you have provided us for this event! They're all very helpful and will be considered when our game team plans a similar event in the future.

We took your feedback and have added additional items to drop from the level 7 and level 8 Castle Garden. These items will drop during the remainder of the event and also will continue to drop after the event is over. Hopefully, this will encourage you to keep your Castle Garden in your Kingdom even after the event is over! :)



20 March: The descriptions behind the items has been fixed. This post is in relation to this from TL:

Sorry guys, this has been reported and fixed! These items are not part of the wedding and were made for the Flower Frenzy Event. The descriptions were incorrectly set, they were descriptions reused from the previously released wedding items. The descriptions for the prizes have been updated!

Lol, going to guess the garden at first level costs six beams and three blocks to place, or something similar! :rolleyes:

I gave my dyes this morning on the off chance that we really would get a head start somehow and be credited for finishing last weeks quests.

Here's hoping this hasn't been hyped out of all proportion.

Kind looks like Greseldas Garden at the beginning but just a different color...lol.

Upgrading but need garden gloves that drop from the Garden with regen time of 4 hours....

http://i57.tinypic.com/2jb8hhc.jpg

Crafting flowers take 30 min. But forgot requirements...blue petals & something else.

And... I guess I need to put out all my conservatories to get those tulips for the event in the upper right corner!!!
Also, from crops, beasts & flowers

Okay, I can tell that goals and whatnot are still updating - I can't craft the 'bunch of flowers' just yet, and I'm wondering how long it will take for gloves to drop.

Edit: nvmnd, I'm on my first bunch of flowers this moment :P Wasn't where I thought it would be.

2 from 16 sugar cane collected
0 from 8 fellora
3 from troll at sparring pit..think I will keep spawning him
0 from faerie flowerbed but I did get 5 gems :)
5 from level 2 castle garden (and 1 pair of gloves)

Off to pull flowers from storage

ETA: 4 from second troll at pit. Seems to be best return for energy spent, so far.

Tulips from red, purple, & yellow flowers, Conservatory, Troll (Sparring Pit), Pepe brought me a Skunkupine to fight...I had a few wheat and sugarcane but mostly strawberries and I was thinking, "this is the longest I've harvested strawberries without seeing a boar". But sure enough when I got down to my last couple of energy, here comes Mr. Dire Boar (mocking me as he covered most of my now empty plots). I had to watch the clock for the energy to run him off...

Up to 22 tulips already, great event so far TL!

I just had something awesome happen to me. It must be new. I just collected from my fairie flowerbeds the ones u buy with gems. I think they are like 35 gems each. Anyways they gave me 5 gems on each of them and I have 4 of them. Is this permanent ? A one time deal ? Or just during this event ?

To those new to world-event:

the tulips won't show up in your inventory, that's exactly the way it should be! Everyone has a little icon in their game, in the upper-right corner. Above it, you can see how many tulips you've collected.

If you tab the icon, you can see how many tulips you need for the next individual price or to unlock taking part in the community prices. 350 for the first individual price, 950 for the community...

This is ganna be hard...

03-12-15, 01:07 PM
So, a drop of 1 tulip in 10 by harvesting flowers, or watering flowers? That's 20 energy an hour, a chance of 1 in 25 to spawn a beast. So about 3 to 4 tulips an hour.

I say dont worry about collecting crops other than your normal play.
Get your conservatories out at two tulip each every two hours.
Collect from like stuff all in a row, i popped a boar collecting from my stables/hatchery/woodmills in quick succession and it dropped five tulips. Animals seem to be better than crops and flowers. I received tulips on nearly every hit, not all at the end when it died, fyi.

Then maybe as we level up the garden it will drop more tulips, like the pyre tent event did. So we start to ramp up as that levels up. So I am concentrating on levelling it and checking it every four hours whenever possible.

The last community event was a total energy strain, so this one seems in line with that...
Although in theory there would be a special gem item that would drop what is needed as well as the main building (garden in this case).

I think that is good advice. I just wasted a ton of energy planting and harvesting quick growing stuff that I don't need and got 0 tulips, but fighting dire boar gave me 2. Now I am also just going about normal play but making sure to keep on top of conservatories and the garden.

But if it doesnt thats many hours of energy wasted. I am interested to find out if it works for you. Please let us know if you do it!

Aside from completing the goal, what is the point of upgrading the new castle garden? Level 2 is 350 coins every 4 hours. When I clicked it to check for the level 3 upgrade, it's the same number of coins and amount of time. The other buildings give at least some 'benefit' - more royal points, lower collection time, and/or more coins - when upgraded. Maybe someone forgot to input the correct info?

Is it so hard to just arrange the placement exactly on those highlighted squares when you buy it?? The other gates don't do that. TL/s8 have middle school students coding on their spring break? Sorry Flower, my rant is not towards you, it's not your fault I know just silly when others are centered & work fine.

I think the conservatories (got 9 out now), blue flower, red flower, faerie flowerbed are probably gonna be your best bang for your bucks (energies). I'm not even gonna bother with crops and monsters lol.

And no I didn't get gems with my faerie flowerbeds...

Edit: forget what I said about the blue flowers. This time collected from 5 in a row and didn't get any. So I'll stick to the conservatories lol. Maybe I'll build a few more...

If you mean the fountain in the picture for the first prize in the event...you need to collect 350 tulips.
When you reach the 350, the next individual prize opens up.
When the community, all players collecting, reach 950 then everyone gets that first pride. It's very hard to figure out but kinda looks like a table & chairs with an umbrella????

Meme this isn't quite right. Once you reach 950, you are eligible for any and all of the prizes that are earned by the community. There might be a requirement of 10 or 30 or even 50 million for the first prize - that would be the total for all CS players. The final prize would require many more.

I don't even have enough coins to build a second conservatory. Had to use some to do an expansion to even have room for it. I was so looking forward to this event, there is NO REASON it needs to be this difficult. Why let lower levels play if we don't have any chance?

Just compared this event to previous events. They really increased the amount you need to collect. 19062

Thanks for posting this. It's a little daunting to think what level 5 would require in this event. The level 1 amount is more than double the pyre event requirement, and more than triple Halloween. Does that mean level 5 could be triple the prior events level 5? That would be 9000!! Yikes.

For the sake of argument, I'll assume TL will be reasonable and keep the level 5 requirement in the range of prior events. 3000 over 22 days is 136 per day.

Now I have gotten 36 tulips in the first 3 1/2 hours - so about 10 an hour - but I don't think that's necessarily sustainable because I had the benefit of several sources of extra energy - 2 wizard schools, the wedding Ali, 2 adventures returning and full energy to start.

I realize all of this is speculative as we have no idea yet how many flowers we need to average a day, or whether the ability to craft tulips will be introduced at some point. We also have no word on whether we are working for items that are just decorative or very useful. It's hard to get motivated to go all-out with this event given so many unknowns.

Just built 2 more conservatories. Now I have 11, plus 2 unbuilt ones sitting around because I don't have enough red petals... Now trying to put away other decorations to squeeze in a couple more conservatories......

Edit: Put away a bunch of non-collectible decorations / old time-limited event coin-only buildings, and squeezed in a total of 12 built conservatories, and 7 unbuilt ones. My kingdom looks like a construction site now but it'll (probably) be worth it.... I could deforest / chop rocks to make space for maybe 5 more conservatories, but then I don't want to waste energy chopping trees/rocks for coins (because stone and wood are maxed out obviously)... well, I'll see about that when I actually got enough red petals to complete all of the unbuilt ones.

So far I have not had much luck with crops at all. From the flowers, I'm only getting decent drops from the blue flowers. In the past events we had adventures, crafting opportunities, and for Halloween, the characters houses as additional sources for drops. I know the beast spawn rate is not supposed to be altered, but in my kingdom, I can barely harvest crops or milk the cows without one popping up every third or fourth tap. Now? I harvested 10 strawberries and 10 cocoa plants all in a row and not one dire boar showed up. That is not normal at all.

I'm expecting that we will get additional quests that award extra tulips. I remember those about halfway through the other events. I'm hoping they add an adventure or trade (fingers crossed!). Because if the drop rate doesn't increase, I don't see finishing this one as I did the others.
Does anyone know it the amount of tulips dropped by the garden increases as it is leveled up?

What did the prep event giving logs and beams help ?????

Tulip sources best to worst: Conservatories, if you have a lot! I build like 6 more in a row I think. Fighting beasts. very helpful! that garden thingy. and LASTLY crops and flowers... although certain crops and flowers have a tendency to attract the bad guys that give more tulips, so focus on stuff like strawberries, wheat etc.

hope this helps!

Great! Except that that's 400,000 coins. Lower levels can't possibly be expected to do that. Not to mention that we are not completely maxed out on everything else and probably need to keep out our resource buildings. And shouldn't be expected to store all of them.

I'm glad this is doable for some long term, high level players, but if this is really what's required, why even let level 15 participate?

I'll give a little benefit of the doubt and assume this isn't actually necessary, and that soon we will get some more ways to earn tulips.

I'm almost on level 25, had to store marketplace and greenhouse to place the garden and then have room for my flower beds. So, I don't have the room or resources at the moment to build and place multiple conservatories (also trying to build the deep mine and Thurston's fort).

After collecting from the garden I'll have 17 tulips for today. 17 tulips a day would be just barely enough for the individual prize. Would need at least 44 tulips a day to get community prize.

I've had the most luck with blue and white flowers, and glimmer trolls.

No luck with wheat whatsoever, didn't even trigger a skunkupine.

At least with Halloween and the Summer Festival we could craft what we needed so there was hard work involved, not just chance, and I felt like I was making good progress. Perhaps we'll have increased opportunities to collect flowers after the garden is finished? Are there any quests after that?

All that collecting pushed me to level 40 and the wedding quests popped up. Great...I'm still looking for the prism and trying to do the Blythewood and collect tulips and now I have a wedding. At least all that will keep me busy and hopefully generate lots of beasties that drop tulips.

It looks like the top individual prize is the mystery cabin/farmhouse from the App Store teaser...

I agree... and from the look of the rest of the greyed out photos they are all decorations. I hope I'm wrong!
