Hi everyone,

We're introducing horses to your Kingdom! In order to access today's update, you will need to be level 22+, have the Jousting arena and have the Goal, "The First Match" completed. The first Goal and Goals associated with the tasks from the first goal are timed and will start today at April 16th at 12 PM DST and will end May 4th 12 PM DST.

EDIT: We have updated the game and the goals "Stallion Selection" and "Equine Education" will now have an expiration date. Please be sure to use your Official Horse Deed to craft your Horse before it expires.

Need for Steed Goals

Pre-requisites: Level 22+, have the Jousting arena and have the Goal, "The First Match" completed.
This is a link to the Story Outline (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?78821-CS-Story-Outline-List&p=1059763&viewfull=1#post1059763) thread so you can check where you're up to if you haven't finished the 1st Anniversary Goals of the Jousting Arena yet.
Timed portion: Need for Steed - must be complete by the expiry date.
Untimed portion: there are 2 goals after Need for Speed which will come when this goal is complete.
Please note that this has now changed... ALL GOALS ARE TIMED (refer above. Also posts in bugs forum and main thread.)

Update 5-6-15


If you do not want to upgrade your Stable to level 5, you don't need to. You only need to if you want to complete Stallion Selection because for the first task, you need to collect from a level 5 Stable. You don't need to complete these Goals in order to keep your Horse that is already in your Kingdom.

From SpiritWind:

1. You must place your horse before the goal expires and all 3 parts are now timed
2. Extra time has now been given to the goal
* amended 3. If you want the reward for finishing Stallion Selection (1 sugar), you have to collect from a Level 5 stable
4. The ability to craft horses will end when the goal expires
5. If you don't pet your horse 5 times you will only miss out on the goal reward. Your horse can grow up any time
6. If you don't finish raising your horse you only miss out on the goal reward (same as no 5)




Notes:
1. Additional Deed/s will cost 999 gems each (as an option to craft more horses)

*****DESTRIER (black horse) CRAFTED IN THE MAGIC FORGE. *****
*****ROUNCEY (palomino/light coloured horse) CRAFTED IN THE WORKSHOP.*****
*****If you collect from a Level 5 stable (in Goal 2 below, which is not timed) the ability to craft more horses for gems disappears.*****

2. If you need more active neighbours, please post your ID in the ADD ME (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?80254-Castle-Story-April-2015) forum - not here though please! (April link added)
3. All buildings count towards tending buildings count, including glimmer troves, bountiful table and gazebo's - anything that you can collect hearts from.
4. You can receive 20/21 letters of recommendation per day. It's ok to send the request to all of your neighbours in one go, but you'll only get 20/21 back.
5. It takes 5 days to pet the horse from the baby into an adult or skip at 88 gems per day

What does the horse drop?
[Collection time:] once every 7 days. They will drop exactly the same items.

ROUNCEY the palomino:
40 energy, 1 longsword, 1 fur
40 energy, 1 longsword, 1 rat tail

DESTRIER the black horse
40 energy, 1 light armor, 1 fur
40 energy, 1 longsword, 1 creeptooth

The neighbor request goal is not timed, right? I thought only the first goal (with the corn) was timed, and then the others were ok to complete whenever.

Also, this horse better do something really cool! If it's just a decoration, I'm done with the game lol.

I noticed that it was 2 gems per horse feed to skip it, that's how I count it.I know it doesn't directly answer how much you are giving, but at least I know how much I have left to do. strawberries are half a gem/skip 2 strawberries for 1 gem' and corn are 1 gem each to skip, and the carrots are 3 gems each to skip ... I look at the number of gems left to skip the rest of the goal can get my answer... Do hope My memory is correct lol

04-16-15, 01:18 PM
This will be very challenging to determine how much progress we need to make each day in order to timely achieve the goals. Thanks Annie for letting us know we need at least 5 days for the second step.

As for the crops and bags of feed, I'm concerned more about the bags of feed. I was pretty much maxed on carrots and corn, with a decent amount of strawberries, so I need about 650 out of the 900 crops. But I'm going to have to keep planting the crops anyway to get 410 feed. And that of course relies on the dreaded random/variable drop rate.

I harvested 4 batches each of 6 corn. 3 times I got 1 bag, once I got 3, for an overall 25% drop rate (6 out of 24). If that continues, I will need to harvest over 1600 corn, carrots and strawberries!! That's almost 1000 more than I need to give to the quest!

Even if I were to start getting lucky and get a 50% drop rate, I still need over 800 crops to generate the feed, which is still much more than I need to fulfill the crop quotas.

Grrrrrrr.

CharmOfLea

I took a cue from you and popped a troll out of the Sparring Pit before I started harvesting the strawberries I planted an hour ago. He can stay right there out of the way until all the crops are done. :)

Corn only takes 3 min. to grow but it's the energy most lower level players will have a problem with. You'll need to pretty much forget everything else you use your energy on & save it for harvesting.

I'm just grateful for something to do in the game. This is at least less monotonous than looking for tulips, and gives me a quest book for something other than other games that I'm waiting for the timer to end on the higher levels that I don't intend to complete. I do hope that the horse drops something good, and I'm hoping that the storyline continues after this. I am on vacation, and last week's update was disappointing because I was looking forward to a true goal to work on while I had the time to actually play the game. Thanks TL, for something to get excited about!

Right, "lend your neighbors a hand" is going to be so easy. :rolleyes: TL, everyone is going to be using their energy to harvest all these crops that they won't be collecting from their buildings so there will be no HEARTS to click on! :eek:

I may just opt to buy a gem pack just to pass that stage....going to too many neighbors slows my game way down, which is why I don't go to them all every day as it is. Blimey........can they make this any harder? :(

I'm so jealous of all of you getting all the skunkupines! One of the goals I have going on right now is the 3 lessons for Ivy ... one of the steps is to beat up 3 skunkupines and I just can't get anything to trigger them - been about a week now and I finally have 2 out of the 3. Even today - they just won't show up in spite of several harvestings of 14 corn at a time, so frustrating! I can tell you it's not just psychological that when you need them, they are nowhere to be found :(

Let's see, making getting the horsey this hard means, this steed needs to drop something like :
Gems ( well it is a noble breed after all ) hehe
and / or Expansion Permits ( with horses we can go far and away ) lol ;)

Is there even any reason to have a horse at all? I mean other than the decorative aspect? Because this is waaaaay too much work for anything and the horses aren't even cute and pink like my pink alicorn, just brown and black-blue. Do they drop anything? Unlock any special game features?

Let's see, making getting the horsey this hard means, this steed needs to drop something like :
Gems ( well it is a noble breed after all ) hehe
and / or Expansion Permits ( with horses we can go far and away ) lol ;)

Brilliant ideas!

Is there even any reason to have a horse at all? I mean other than the decorative aspect? Because this is waaaaay too much work for anything and the horses aren't even cute and pink like my pink alicorn, just brown and black-blue. Do they drop anything? Unlock any special game features?

I don't think they're very cute either compared to the Alis.
My guess...they'll drop fertilizer (more poop I don't need) or some other nonsense....lol
Animation = rearing up like Alis most likely.

Right, "lend your neighbors a hand" is going to be so easy. :rolleyes: TL, everyone is going to be using their energy to harvest all these crops that they won't be collecting from their buildings so there will be no HEARTS to click on! :eek:

It'll be rough when everyone is in stage 1 and you're ahead of the pack, but when people get to stage 2 we'll all be needing to visit 800 of our buildings so there should be plenty of opportunity for hearts.

I don't mind skunkupines at all, I get an extra energy out of them half the time. But the dire boars hiding in the strawberry patches are another matter entirely.

My sentiments exactly. Hopefully I'll get a skunkupine when I harvest corn, then I can harvest the strawberries, then slay the skunkie so I can finish off the corn.

I was thinking in the line of rearing up and moving their heads, but in typical horse fashion, not like the ali, at least that is what I hope for.
On the other hand, they look like mutated Alicorn lol

Hi everyone,

We're introducing horses to your Kingdom! In order to access today's update, you will need to be level 22+, have the Jousting arena and have the Goal, "The First Match" completed. The first Goal and Goals associated with the tasks from the first goal are timed and will start today at April 16th at 12 PM DST and will end May 4th 12 PM DST. After you complete the very first Goal "Need for Steed", the following 2 Goals are not timed.

Teddy, as pika has written, you also need to have finished "The First Match". You can look it up it you are beyond that.

1 corn - 1 gem
2 strawberry - 1 gem
1 carrot - 3 gem (or, of course, the % is the number you collected)
1 horse feed - 2 gem

I'm not exactly sure how you figured the time for the 2nd goal but getting 100 requests filled usually takes 5 days. I'm not sure what does and doesn't count as a building but I could see collecting from 800 buildings taking longer than that, too. ;)
I know I'm going to have to bring some buildings out of storage after I got my kingdom the way I wanted it. Lol

It does take 5 days but the 20 person limit expires sometime around midnight. I'm going to build about 10 farmhouses and collect from 200 buildings a day which is just about doable. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we will be doing anything else over the next two weeks.

This will be very challenging to determine how much progress we need to make each day in order to timely achieve the goals. Thanks Annie for letting us know we need at least 5 days for the second step.

As for the crops and bags of feed, I'm concerned more about the bags of feed. I was pretty much maxed on carrots and corn, with a decent amount of strawberries, so I need about 650 out of the 900 crops. But I'm going to have to keep planting the crops anyway to get 410 feed. And that of course relies on the dreaded random/variable drop rate.

I harvested 4 batches each of 6 corn. 3 times I got 1 bag, once I got 3, for an overall 25% drop rate (6 out of 24). If that continues, I will need to harvest over 1600 corn, carrots and strawberries!! That's almost 1000 more than I need to give to the quest!

Even if I were to start getting lucky and get a 50% drop rate, I still need over 800 crops to generate the feed, which is still much more than I need to fulfill the crop quotas.

Grrrrrrr.

Randomness strikes again. I just collected 10 corn and got 7 horse feed.

Given how many we need to collect, I'm sure you're average return will improve over time.

I am level 28 so I meet the level requirement but I am using Castle Story on Android and do not see this quest.

I really want to wait on this and see if someone can get the horse and tell us what it does before I waste a ton of resources... I've started to believe that every new goal in this game is going to be a total ripoff. The pre-goals for the flower event were a total disgusting joke, the event prizes were totally useless, and now this new market trade invites you to give away 50 energy worth of resources in exchange for 4 coal. Not to mention the 180 gem tiny decorations in the ugly new tent game. So, I'm a little skeptical about this goal, to say the least.

They're never going to update the main storyline for higher level players.... just give up on it now. Timed goals that they can include the max number of players for (ie lower levels) are much more profitable, so that's what we're going to see.

A Corny Quest is also timed because it is associated with "Need for Steed". As "Need for Steed" is timed, the Goals associated with it are also timed. The Goals after you complete "Need for Steed" are not timed.

To all players that just are able to participate, I would advice them to try as hard as they can to get this timed goal.

Yes, it keeps you from chasing the other goals, but.... Those will be there for you when this event is over, relax, take your time, don't stress about those. Your stock will pile up again eventually and you can be sure you will finish all of them.

This one has a limited timeframe. I am sorry no one told me this when I was just a low lvl player. I was so overwhelmed by all the quests, that I neglected these timed events, and I'm still sorry for missing out on some great prizes.

To those wanting to wait till is known if the prize is worth it: don't wait. You won't have the time to finish it and then you sure have spent a lot of resources for nothing.

Besides, give me one good reason why you should't give it your best shot? And no, I'm not taling about spending money on gems.

I agree with the two posts above. I'm not the highest level in this game and I have tons to do as it is. Considering how the last several goals and events in TL games have been way too tight on time and often didn't reward much in exchange for all the stress and hard work, I'm not sure if I should waste this insane amount of resources and enery over it just to get to the last day and still not get it finished in time and get nothing in return. Recently I've noticed them making more and more timed goals extremely stressful, I'm guessing probably to get people to shed out their gems and buy more just to try and finish these goals in time, but there's just not enough time at the end, except those players that can manage to tend for their games 24/7. If any CM would like to give us a hint as to what this item will result in at the end, that would be helpful for me (and many other lower level players) figure out if we should put everything we're doing on hold for a couple of weeks and focus on this or just continue with our many other tasks.

I like what you said & I don't know why a lot of people here don't like anything happen against their expectation.
When the second chance come to get the pink alicorn for players don't get it before , they were complaining about it too much because they already have it and they don't have the chance to get the second one (selfishness).
then, they complain about frenzy event because only decoration and now about this because consume a lot of energy and effort with not knowing what horse drop is !!

For me, it's always been better to just stop doing any of the regular things when special events or timed quests come along. It's far less stressful to focus on using all of my energy on the limited-time quests. The regular stuff will still be there afterwards. And whatever the prize is, this may be the only time it is ever offered.

unless you need parts from beasties, you'd be better off leaving one on your board (obviously not near crops!) whilst you do these goals. I put my troll sparring pit in a corner and have a troll parked permanently out of the way of anything.

I agree about postponing completing other goals to do the timed ones. When you get where I am (level 50) there's not much to do. It gets kinda boring. So use these timed goals to extend your play. So what if the horse doesn't drop gems. Just enjoy the challenge of getting it.

Considering how the last several goals and events in TL games have been way too tight on time and often didn't reward much in exchange for all the stress and hard work, I'm not sure if I should waste this insane amount of resources and enery over it just to get to the last day and still not get it finished in time and get nothing in return. Recently I've noticed them making more and more timed goals extremely stressful, I'm guessing probably to get people to shed out their gems and buy more just to try and finish these goals in time, but there's just not enough time at the end, except those players that can manage to tend for their games 24/7.

These points here are the reasons I'm hesitant to do this. The flower event gave nothing in return for all the hard work it took to reach the last individual prize. If this horse just drops fur or something, it's in no way worth the effort. And there would be nothing worse than starting the goals only to realize, 200 strawberries later, that it's impossible to finish.

There is nothing positive about the direction this game is going. Yet another stressful resource-draining timed goal for what is probably a pointless prize... just to get gems out of people. Why make a permanent untimed goal that people can enjoy and finish slowly when you can make a timed goal requiring an absolutely insane amount of energy and sucker tons of people into spending money??? And then, as an added slap in the face, the cherry on top so to speak, the prize will be some utterly worthless piece of garbage decoration.

I'm not wrong about the reason behind the insane timed goal but I do hope I'm at least wrong about the prize being worthless... Since this is jousting related, hopefully it can drop weapons! Or things needed for adventures. That would be cool. But from what I've seen recently, it's far too generous for them to give us something actually useful.

Anybody feel like they're a little low on horse feed? I imagine this is partly because I had a lot of crops on hand to start with, but I have about half the crops I need, but only 14% of the horses feed.... Guess I'll see where I'm at once I've reached 100% of the crops required.

I started out maxed on all three, so I am starting out in the hole on feed. I guess we will catch up on feed when we start to replenish our crops after giving the total amount. But I don't plan on restocking carrots until after corn then strawberries if I still need feed.

I really like these goals - they are easy to obtain items (common crops, visit neighbors, collect from coin buildings) that everyone can easily do except it requires way more than inventory can hold so it challenges everybody. I read lots of comments from level 50 players that do not have goals and are wanting more to do, but when new goals or events come out, they already have the items on hand. Click, click, click - goals done, bored again. This way, even if inventory is full, there is much work to be done. There is some variety here too so it's not the same thing for 2 weeks. Those that like to gem through can still do it - and thank you!! How else would we know what's coming? ;)

I'm hoping this steed is worth it (like Halloween event items) and not deco (like Pyre and Flower event items) or into the cauldron he goes! I'd hate to wait and see and then not have the needed time to complete. My other goals aren't going anywhere and neither am I. If you're looking for me, I'll be in my garden for the next few days....

I started out with 99 corn and 99 carrots, used every strawberry making 10 sundaes. After growing the rest of the corn and strawberries, I have 305 horse feed. I'll spend 3 gems for the last carrot (but I'll wait until I have enough horse feed) so I'm working on restocking the strawberries now, then will restock the corn. If I'm still short on horse feed, then I'll just grow corn the rest of the way until I have enough horse feed.

Based on my experience so far, I would guess that the drop rate for horse feed is 50%. (That's based on my mostly collecting corn. I've collected a lot fewer strawberries, and no carrots yet. I don't know if perhaps the drop rate is different for different crops.)

But assuming it's a straight 50%, then since we need 410 horse feed, statistically you will get that after collecting 820 crops. The total corn, strawberries and carrots needed is 900, so the vast majority of people should have their 410 after collecting 900 crops. But for those of us who started with a large number of the crops already in storage, we may not have all the feed we need by the time the corn, strawberries and carrots are done. We may need to "restock" a little to get the last feed.

I'm certainly glad I was maxed out on carrots. :) all it means is that you'll need to harvest some more times. But instead of being empty after giving over the crops, you'll be maxed again.

Hi everyone,
The first Goal and Goals associated with the tasks from the first goal are timed and will start today at April 16th at 12 PM DST and will end May 4th 12 PM DST

IMAO, it is not affordable to reach the goal in time without spending many many gems. By now, it requires to get almost thousand of crops, thousand and a half of energy, hundred of neighbourgs help (don't expect help from me those who never visited me in months) and wait to see how many thousand monster needed to get the third seal.

Will the steed random drop gems daily, against the economy of the game? I guess not...

P.S. Congrats SW, all I can say is that I could also spend my 50x energy crate and create 5 or 6 energy x20 in the greenhouse (I already have the ingredients), also I could make 5 energy trades x10 in next 10 hours, even some x20 energy trades. And I also have my 2 wizzard academies (9 & 10) every few hours and the pink ali and walicorn, but...

Is it worthed for a steed without knowing capabilities? Didn't TL forget to tell us something about it? And, finally, do you imagine how will manage this all other players without those many energy sources?

SpiritWind00
04-17-15, 03:03 AM
I haven't spent any gems, but I've been able to finish (all but about 8 carrots left to go) the first goal in one day. You just have to be creative!

I had some 10x energy crates from drop boxes (feral lands) and I created some energy in the greenhouse a few times (from all of the petals collected from Flower Frenzy). I did a couple of energy trades in the exchange too. It is possible. And it doesn't really matter about the unknown goals yet as they are not timed, so it will be like Trials & Tribute or Sister Sister, we will just plod our way through them until they get done.

Allow a bit less than a week for each of the 3 known goals and it can be done!

I don't understand this. Why don't you just delete the neighbours if you don't want to help them out? Responding to a request isn't even taking a second, so I really don't understand why you would do this.

For me: I have 400+ neighbours and I very rarely visit (sometimes, when I'm in need of 2-3 energy to ninish something). My social rating is 0, but I do accept every neighbour, just because I know it can be a hastle to get those 20 replies on requests a day. I don't want anything in return.

Why wouldn't you help out a neighbor who's gameplay differs from yours?

When someone asks for help, minimum thing he may also do is to visit others. I dislike to receive help request for their storylines from people who never visited me in months, even neither when asking now for help!! So imagine now with 100 helps needed (maximum amount since I remember starting the game one year ago) how many people will ask for it without saying you just a ty

No, you didn't get nothing. You got decoration. You may think it's worth nothing, or atleast not the efford you put in it (neither do I), but it is something. And you got the Gardens, which do drop usefull stuff.

Personally, I just like to chase goals, accept challenges. I don't care much about the reward (ok, without any I wouldn't participate either, but just a small piece of deco is enough for me. To me it feels like a medal: "Look, I've made it! I worked my XXX off, and I made it!. That's enough for me.

Why? You seem very negative and demanding, are you still enjoying the game? Why not help them out? It's not like it's costing you anything and I realy don't see any reason at all: it's costing me nothing, and I want nothing in return. For me, I feel like I'm helping out by accepting every neighbor and responding to their request. Visiting 300-400 neighbors will be a dayjob, and I sure won't do that.

And, why not simply delete those neighbors? Why keep them in your list? They don't benefit you, you don't benefit them, it's just annoying to you and to them. Thinking they have a neighbor that can help them out, but then refuses...

You want neighbours to visit before you want to help them out, you want to be thanked for just pushing a button that takes less than a second, you want the prizes to be known and good before you start participating. Why not enjoy the ride and see where it takes you?

well... here's my 2 cents about this :)

i only visit those neighbors that are on my wall or in the News (and if you did help me out with accepting my request, you will be in there) so.. if you refuse to send me cause i did not visit... i refuse to visit cause you did not accept my request :p
after all visiting and tapping buildings takes more time than just accepting a request

Because the way I understand it, the first two goals available are to collect all three seals, and to collect the first seal. So, because the three seal goal is timed for 18 days, even if, after we finish the first seal goal, the other two seal goals were not timed, they effectively ARE timed because the collect three seals goal is timed.

Am I not understanding this correctly? Are there two additional goals after getting all three seals that are not timed? Or, was any mention of things not being timed a crock? Because even if the other seals don't have a timer on them specifically, they are still actually timed because of the seal goal.

It does, thanks.

That's kind of unfortunate. I was hoping that earning the seals was all you had to do, because I really, really want someone to tell us what the horse does before I start on this.

I'm still doing some preparing now anyway. I had close to 0 carrots in inventory and maybe 30 corn and 60 strawberries. So it's not like I can't make some progress while I wait to decide... but it sounds like it may be a while before someone gets the horse.

Is there any chance we'll get official word soon on what the horse does? I'm guessing not, but worth asking.

Well, the gardens doesn't count as an event prize. Considering it was the first step and didn't involve any effort other than purchasing it. I appreciate the drops they added to it, but that doesn't make the event itself any less of a ripoff. It's like they're totally unwilling to give us anything that might help us, no matter how small the help would be. I mean look at the new market trades. And the expensive grand prizes for the new tent game. Total ripoffs on both counts. That's what I've come to expect, and getting a decoration as a pat on the back for spending a ton of time and/or money is just insulting. If they are going to be so obviously greedy and keep creating timed goals with RIDICULOUS requirements to complete, the absolute LEAST they can do is give us a prize that is worth something.

So, no, I can't just play for a useless reward. Not just because the reward is useless, not just because I have plenty of other goals to do (I am actually concerned about hitting the point where the level 50 players are where there's nothing to do and the game isn't fun anymore)...... but because the reward itself is insulting. There's just no way around that. There is NO REASON ON EARTH why they couldn't give us a USEFUL reward. It's like they want to create these goals to be the MAXIMUM amount of greedy - making them close to IMPOSSIBLE for anyone that isn't a level 50 player and maxed on everything with tons of different energy sources, so that most players will have to spend money to actually get the prize. And then on top of that, they don't even give players anything actually helpful in return for all the time/money they've spent! It's insulting.

So, "fun of the challenge" doesn't do it for me. It probably would in some games, but I'm having a very hard time looking past the blatant greed of this game, on so many levels.

You asked before for one good reason for not doing the challenge even if the end result is only for decoration. My one good reason is I don't have space for anything that is only a decoration now, so what's the point in busting a gut for one more thing that will end up in storage until I have finished expanding? Apart from walls and paths, everything my Kingdom serves a purpose that helps towards expansion and development. Later I will add decorations, but now I don't have enough room. If I was Level 50 I would go for it, but at Level 34 I have plenty of things to do.

In the good to know category, the tablet of tabernaum, glimmer dust troves, the goddess tree, the glimmergate, the faerie tea party, the faeirie bridge and the buffet table count as buildings as far as this quest goes. Might be obvious but so does the royal exchange. The mythic mushroom doesn't count. Just wanted to be sure. Lol

My Royal Exchange does not count towards this goal...:confused:

Ok ... Since the Royal Exchange *doesn't* count, I'm gonna suspect that kitchens & workshops & bakeries & faerie workshops & potions shops & greenhouses & magic forges & tinker camp & barracks & King's Keep or Queen's Court also do not count ...jeez.... Hmphf.

OK, SW or KookyP ~ I think we need some clarification on WHICH buildings count for the 'care-for-800' part because it's obviously NOT *all* buildings that count afterall.
Is it just buildings that can get a heart popped over it???

Yes, this was a possibility long before the event. :) but for the record, I did get a couple yesterday while harvesting all the corn and strawberries needed. :)
Thanks! I've gotten some in the past but not from harvesting - at least, not that I noticed. Maybe I need to pay better attention!

Start building those farmhouses......15 min. Collection

10 stone &
10 wood to build

They don't count towards your royal building # so u can have tons of them.
I'll build about 10 of them, and collect from other random coin buildings too.

But....it would be great to have a full list of useable coin buildings<3<3
For example, do glimmerdust troves count?

Edit: troves DO count...it also said that table(?s?) and gazebos count.

Got a beast near the stables..so my crops are safe now..thankfully..carrots will grow today, so only saving and creating energy for tomorrows strawberry and corn picking..

YAY!!! SW

Instead of saving and storing energy for corn and strawberries tomorrow, you might want to consider a mix of crops so that you can harvest crops as your energy replenishes. For example, I don't particularly like planting a whole field of corn at once since I won't have replenished my energy in the time it takes to grow. So I might plant just 5-10 corn at a time, harvest them, and replant. If I still have energy, I harvest in 3 minutes and replant again. So with a fairly small number of plots, I get to quickly use available energy and make a dent in my goals.

Similarly, if I'm down to zero energy and have all empty plots, it's not necessarily efficient to plant all strawberries, since I won't have enough energy in an hour to pick them all. So having plots of carrots balances my energy.

If I could check in on my game every hour or so, I'd maybe want at least 5 plots each of strawberries and corn, and leave the rest for carrots.

My quest book showed progress the first time I collected from the royal exchange but not after the next time. Collecting from the workshops and tinker shop didn't either.


Since the Royal Exchange counts, do the crafting buildings and kitchens also count, when collecting from them?

Building a farmhouse only takes 10 wood and 10 stone, nothing else. They can be collected every 10 minutes at level 1. At level 2, it's 15 minutes so it's best to leave them at level 1 anyway.

Anybody feel like they're a little low on horse feed? I imagine this is partly because I had a lot of crops on hand to start with, but I have about half the crops I need, but only 14% of the horses feed.... Guess I'll see where I'm at once I've reached 100% of the crops required.

On 1 of my accounts, I need an additional 227 crop items and 229 feed. So even if I have 100% drop rate of feed bags, I will need to plant extra crops.

I've averaged 43% drop rate on that account, more like 48% drop rate on my other account. I'm guessing TL programmed a drop rate of 45 or 46% since that would give you 410 feed bags for 900 harvests, and it falls right between the percentage on my accounts. But that's just a guess. The 410 seems like such an odd number.

That is it!!! I've had it with the beasties! They're eating up all my darn energy! I've purchased a skunk trap and cornered the little suckers in both my queendom's. I don't care about stupid Troll Tribe in 2tina, it will just sit and wait, as those skunks aren't moving for weeks! Take that you little annoying buggers, take that! :p

I bought a skunkupine trap, put it out and I'm still getting the little buggers. Do I need to put it somewhere specific, do something to it, or what? I'm feeling like I've wasted 5 gems.

On the flip side, I collected from a mine since I'm still trying to rebuild silver after a goal and a dire boar popped. Much cheaper fix. Too bad it didn't happen before I bought the trap.

You'll want to put it somewhere as far away from where you are collecting as possible then "chop" it. After chopping it, a skunkupine will appear. Then don't kill it. :)

Just realized you have a boar out, so don't chop the trap until you want to some other time when no other beasts are out.

Sorry, when I wrote it I didn't bother with the "chopped it" to catch the little rascals as I thought that was a well known fact. :o
I tend to forget that there are players that may not have reached the stage in the game where we're required to buy a trap for each of the beasties and chop it, then defeat them. :)

3 more for a total of 15 should move you to 3% out of 500. You're just in between right now. Technically you're almost at 2.5% but it's rounded to the lowest whole number.

Edit: just realized you said moved 2% not at 2% so the amount you need to move up one more could be somewhere in between 1 and 4. ;) 5 out of 500 is 1%.

24 hours into the goal-

On both accounts, I have all the strawberries and carrots. On 1 account I need 105 corn and 163 bags of feed. On the other, I need 242 corn and 219 feed.

Been playing very frequently, and doing little but the goal, especially in the 1st account. And I started out mostly maxed on carrots and corn which isn't going to mean much because of they need for feed bags.

I bet this is going to be impossible for me. And other lower level players. And I bet it's rigged. If there's a step where beating up monsters is involved, no amount of energy / devotion will help because they'll probably cut the spawn rate. And since monsters are something players can't control, they have total control over the spawn rate and can space it out in order to trick people into feeling like they'll just miss the deadline - therefore making them spend gems. Yeah I'm a cynic but who wouldn't be after watching how things go in this and other TL games.

There is still a lot of time left. :) if they were to cut the spawn rate (which I don't believe they ever do except as part of the storyline) then it would affect every level, not just lower level. We all do have stretches where we either seem to get overrun or can't find any but it's normally not all at the same time, the same way.... Just luck of the draw. ;) In any event, you're right, we can only do what comes along. :) it'll still take a lot of harvesting and building collecting probably. :)

Ugh. Add me to the very long list wishing for a gem confirmation button. I fell into big gem trap and finished off the last 100 bags of feed before I wanted to. :( The silver lining is I only needed 9 more strawberries to get the first seal, so I was able to start Building My Resume today.

My advice for the quest is to build extra farm houses. 10 minute collection times and they are cheap and easy to build. And if you have room, pull out those extra conservatories...they are the second quickest collection time at 2 hours.
As for the gem traps, be even more extra careful when clicking and don't buy gems, or at least not in advance. The sales happen often enough that it's not worth the risk trying to save them.

I have found that balancing the crops helps. When I started I had 95 carrots, 90 plus corn and 60 plus strawberries. Gave them and the planted 15 carrots, 24 strawberries, and 6 corn. I'm now waiting for 6 more feed with 30 strawberries due shortly. Corn is back to 99 and I've used lots of berries.
