Has anyone seen Sir Pigglesworth? Any ideas where he might be? Maybe he's frightened? Let's do everything we can to comfort him! Even pigs could use a nice, warm welcome! That will help him settle into his new home, I think!

[==Update requires app update to Version 1.4 on iOS, will be live starting 9/10 @ 1pm and everyone will have 11 days to complete the event once they activate the event.==]

Alright, guys, I admit it - I've been playing a game with you all! I'm going to start including the answers to my games in these spoiler tags. Check the spoiler only if you want the answer to the game! Today's answer is: HAMLET

Sir Pigglesworth's Event - optional time event. Grand Prize is Sir Hamlet!
prepared by SpiritWind

From Pika:
Please make sure you have updated to iOS 1.4 to see this event.
Players level 15+ can access this event. Some requirements may differ for lower level players-PS


Tips for event:
Golden nuggets Found: Sparkling mine, Deep mine or by mining rocks, feral lands adventure, troll vault, dark cave formations (rare)

Ornate Beam - craft: 6 hours - 2 royal beam, 15 living wood, 10,000 coins
You can also get them by the ornate trade in exchange (does use precious trade tickets though) and Desert Sands adventure (not a guaranteed drop, but it's quite often).

Magic fruit Found: Magic fruit tree, magic garden -
tip: if you are a couple short, you can 'give' what you have to the goal and purchase the remainder through the exchange. You can only buy 3 in the exchange as then you would have enough to actually do the trade. DO NOT DO THE TRADE! It's just a way of purchasing magic fruit with gems cheaper than through the goal.

If you finish the chapter early (before 2 days) you have to wait for the remainder of the time to expire before the next chapter starts. You have to complete a chapter to begin the next chapter.

If you take longer than 2 days to complete a chapter then the next one will start sooner.

Chapter 1 did have a shorter lead time, but now it's all 2 days.

the gem skip cost does not change if you give some items to it. Eg, it cost 150 gems to skip that goal for 15 nuggets. If you give any nuggets, it will still cost 150 gems for the remainder. The price does not decrease if you give any items.

2. Clear 20 debris [skip 40 gems] (plant in a log, ferns, patch of grass and old logs. Be mindful if you are still on the glimmer rock fortune not to clear an old log for this goal.)
3. Clear 3 rock outcroppings [skip 60 gems] (Other rock piles do not work...)
Reward: 10,000 coin, 20 gems

* the Glimmer Rock fortune is where you chop old logs for glimmer bits. If you clear the log the fortune ends. That's why I put a warning. For the debris goal I'm choosing patches of grass as they are 1 chop....

Hi, I have a question. I have the possibility to start the questline now or later. How much later is possible? I go on holidays on Saturday and would miss 8 of the 11 days. Can I wait till Sept 21 to start it and still have 11 days to finish? That would be soo cool.

If this is similar to what they have done with other S8 games, you will have 1 day to complete a Chapter. If you complete the chapter early, you will need to wait until the designated time for the next Chapter to start unless you spend gems to start the next Chapter early. You can take more than one day to complete the Chapter but you cannot start the next Chapter until the previous one is complete.

It's like they do in Dragon Story. It'll cost more and more to unlock. Each chapter is meant to be one day.

Magic fruit trees and maple trees also work for the 3rd step.

Per the first post verbiage "Version 1.4 on iOS" I'm assuming this is an iOS update only. I am an android player and I suppose I will miss out on this update, how disappointing. I wish Storm8 would figure out a way to make ALL updates available for ALL players. I really enjoy playing Castle Story, but feel I am missing out on the game when these iOS only updates are released :'(

I know there's a big difference in the operating systems on the 2 devices but not having an across the board parity is silly.

AND, it won't move you ahead in time, so after you finish the 2nd day tasks, then you will have to wait two full days for the next chapter, or use gems again. It is really not worth it to gem ahead!

The event doesn't start for you until you press the button to Begin. So you can wait up to 5 days to start the event and still have 6 full days (actually 5 1/2) to complete it.

So you could have the icon on your screen but don't tap it & the icon will continue to show 6 days? Will the timer start when it reaches the 6 th day though or will it be like the last event? Time left on the upgrade goal even though the event is over....if so, be prepared for more irate/confused players.

And the poster above is right....the actual clock within the goal does say 5 days & 10 hrs
It should read 5 days & 23 hrs.

I havent been in agreement with some things storm8 has been doing as of late with bakery and restaurant. Those, along with fashion are my core games. Well dragon too. BUT the storybook events and the catering ones from RS2 and now FS2 are amazing! Theyre creative and fun. You dont need to rely on neighbors and keep you occupied.

I like this one so far and wouldnt worry about speeding up if anyone is thinking of it. I cant wait to introduce Hamlet to Sir Oink Oink!

09-10-15, 01:47 PM
Chapters usually unlock at midnight their time. So the 5 days, 10 hours is probably correct. Don't think of this as being like the other events. You'll typically do everything needed for one day then go back to normal play until the next chapter unlocks. You can take more than a day to do a chapter but at some point you'll have to make up the time.

Did he come fully grown or did you have to pet him several times?


That is Sir P, isn't it? Don't think even Speedy Gonzales has got to the end yet.


Lol I thought the same thing so I went and looked. It IS sir Piggie ;)

LOL! Yes, it's Sir Pig:D

The Free Gift appears to be 2 energy for watching a video. Mine doesn't work and says to come back later. I was hoping it was a gem for players who don't buy gems. Not worth my time and energy. I can just wait a few minutes for the energy. Looks like the Free Gift is just more litter on the screen.

It looks like this is going to be difficult for newer players. While I have millions of coins, many don't have half a million. I have a mature kingdom, enough Alicorns and Jousting horses that drop energy that I should be able to get this done without too much stress. Maybe there should have been a warning at the beginning not to start this quest if you don't have the items necessary to finish it. I worry that this will be a drain on many people's assets and they will discover sometime down the line that they have spent a lot of their time and assets, but will be unable to move forward because they haven't played long enough to accumulate everything that is necessary to finish. I suppose that I shouldn't worry because I will finish, but some of my neighbors will likely not be able to finish after investing a lot into this, and it makes me sad.

The 500 K is very steep and a bar to completing the event for many but the most advanced players - this is especially true given that we just had a significant coin outlay in the last event, if I recall correctly? Why does it have to be prohibitively high?

In other S8 games, they have varied the tasks somewhat based on the level/experience points of the player. Hopefully, they will do that here as well and require a lower amount of coins.

Kooky or SW..... I believe the 3rd step of the 2nd chapter should be pay $500,000 damage, not harvest 40 strawberries. Annie can correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the strawberries are probably the first (or subsequent) part of the 3rd chapter.

The faerie flowerbed can be obtained via a quest line (I don't remember which offhand) or purchased in the shop. It drops faerie murmurs and various flower petals.

Me too. If we only have 6 days to complete this but have to wait almost a day and a half for the second chapter, there is no way to complete this without a significant outlay of gems. Is this a scam to force us to spend gems to finish? Especially since the cost to skip to each chapter goes up significantly, and doesn't help in the end because unless you are willing to pay to skip all, you will be forced to wait for the last chapter anyway. There seems to be someting fishy in the timing of this. It needs to stabilize, then someone in the know needs to eplain how this works for this game. There have been similar stories into other games, but while they are helpful to give us a general idea of what to expect, we really need a timetable for this game. I have over a 33 hour wait to start Chapter Two. At that rate, I will never get to the last chapter although I will probably be able to complete the requirements.

Is there something fishy in the Castle Story moat?

10 ornate beams! And each one requires..... 15 living wood! (Sorry Fairie Bulb, you're officially on hold) ....plus 10,000 coins. Which some players may have trouble with, after having to pay for the marketplace damage. (How can one pig do THAT much damage?!?!)

This means there no communication going on behind the scenes! Our actual timer on the icon changed to 12 days and the time listed in the first post by sourp4tch changed to 6 days.

Sorry about the discrepancy! You all were supposed to have 11 days to complete the 6 challenges, not 6 days. Expanding that window to complete the challenges means more time allotted per challenge, but it also means a potentially longer wait time if you finish a challenge early.

Hope you all enjoy this event! Sir Hamlet is eager to meet you all and play with Sir Pigglesworth ^^ <3

Sourp4tch didn't write that, Kooky Panda did and it was taken from what was said by us in the forum and hasn't changed since the timer changed. After seeing chapter 5 pics, I'm betting it really was meant to be 2 days per chapter or we would all be dead in the water needing 50 (whatever they were) when we are usually limited to 20 requests per day.

It's not that I'm not willing to part with gold nuggets, it's that I don't have them to part with! There is no possible way to complete this in time, and I have 9. (Without lots of gems). There is NO WAY I will get 6 more in time with the current drop rates. 15 is not even remotely reasonable!!!:mad: What a waste of an update.

This ia out of my reach as well and I am a level 41 experienced player, who buys gems on a regular basis. I have a magic fruit tree and the resources for everything else but the gold nuggets are impossible. I gave what I had for Sir Daisy (who I have since stored as he gives coins half the time) and have only collected five nuggets since then.

This is very disappointing. I have completed every single quest since I started playing five months ago...Barracks, Gazebo, Vinyard, Sir Daisy, Racetrack... But even I will not pay 150 gems to gem past the nuggets. I just had to do that exact thing a short time ago, in the Sir Daisy quest, although it was a third of the gems. It might add more incentive if the prizes were better, but it seems that the days of the Bountiful Table, the Cauldren and the Love Shack are gone. Thanks but no thanks S8.

am level 50, been playing since first valentime event. i play 2-3 times every single day with maybe a total of 2 weeks off since i started playing. i harvest mines everyday, loads of rocks when i can and i have never gotten close to even collecting 75 nuggets in total in 2 plus years so why the heck they are asking for 15 extra extra rare drops in a timed event that can take weeks for some of us to even get 1-2 of is ridiculous!! do hope they knock it down to five at most, seems a more reasonable amount for rare drops..however they really need to stop asking for the same darn rare gold drop over and over.. why not golden eggs instead or heck golden apples since apples are food a piggy would eat or better yet just freakin ask for things that are not dependent on waiting for a rare drop during timed events...

i have 12 nuggets and event just started and it really stinks knowing that chances of getting 3 nuggets in time are slim..after not being able to complete my second event building because of these high random drops, not being able to finish this event because of another random drop is going to kill my love for this game..

Ok, lemme see if I've got this right .... 6 chapters with 2 days to do each chapter (my math would make that 12 days, not 11 but whatever)... If we finish a chapter before those 2 days are up, we're forced to wait the 2 days ANYway before the next chapter will begin. Okayyyyyy.
And then there's an extra rub...The LAST goal of Chapter 5 (after giving FIFTEEN precious golden nuggets and FORTY-FIVE precious magic fruit) is to get FIFTY neighbor responses when we can only receive 20/21 per DAY, which makes that chapter a THREE-DAY event by itself, pushing us into the time alotted for the last chapter (6), which we don't even know what that chapter requires yet!
Sheeeeeeeeeeeeesh, what in the WORLD does this Hamlet doooooo!?!! ... Does he vomit gold nuggets while doing back flips? Good lord, this is TOUGH for even the most advanced players.

I *may* be able to complete all 6 chapters by the skin of my teeth, only because I've been hoarding gold nuggets & magic fruit but it'll be close.
My advice to all players: Complete the chapters that you can, for the prizes that completing them will reward you and don't stress over or worry about the latter chapters that are too out of reach.
Just wow, TL.
G'luck, everybody!

You have 2 days to work on each Chapter. You'll have to wait the 2 days before you can access the next Chapter. Please make sure you have updated to iOS 1.4 to see this event.

You beat me to it! Thanks again, Pika, for the quick reply to my PM. 2 days will just give me more time to keep making Living Wood! LOL ��

Now I'm waiting for neighbor requests. I don't like to skip those, so here it ends for me tonight:)

Thanks for speeding and posting Annie. Chapter 5 is ridiculous! I am level 50, play all day, and have gotten all of 5 gold nuggets since depleting my stock a month ago to upgrade the jousting arena. I know many people are in the same boat. I also only have 28 magic fruit because I have been running the exchange for energy a lot lately with all the mindless tapping we have had to do. I may sit this one out, something I have never done in years of playing. Very disappointed.

Ok, lemme see if I've got this right .... 6 chapters with 2 days to do each chapter (my math would make that 12 days, not 11 but whatever)... If we finish a chapter before those 2 days are up, we're forced to wait the 2 days ANYway before the next chapter will begin. Okayyyyyy.
And then there's an extra rub...The LAST goal of Chapter 5 (after giving FIFTEEN precious golden nuggets and FORTY-FIVE precious magic fruit) is to get FIFTY neighbor responses when we can only receive 20/21 per DAY, which makes that chapter a THREE-DAY event by itself, pushing us into the time alotted for the last chapter (6), which we don't even know what that chapter requires yet!

Thanks for posting NW. I was starting to get very concerned after seeing Annie's post about the nbr visits too but just hadn't really tried to figure out the actual timing yet.
This really is looking more & more impossible to complete even with continuous play.

Because one per day will get me nowhere near the goal...I feel like most of these are out of my reach :( I hate giving up before I even start, but this really seems impossible for me. There's no way to achieve these goals unless you already have a huge surplus on your farm.

Magic fruit also drops from the Magic Garden. I never do the exchange using that unless I'm maxed & don't have anything else to do in the exchange. Same with the gold items. Never do the gold item exchange at all.

Sorry I meant the Magic Garden! lol good to know to never use them on anything!

I also can't make ornate beams at my level and only have $100,000 right now. No way I'll be able to multiply that by 5 by the time this event ends. Guess I'm bowing out now. Good luck to everyone else!! :)

Thanks for explaining this. Originally, I thought those who couldn't get the 50 neighbor responses in the 2 day time period would have that requirement expire.

So assuming 2 days is 48 hours (I know, never assume in CS) what might work is if your 48 hour period spans 3 CS days. I'm East coast US so a new CS day starts during the night for me. If I am able to start my neighbor requests in an afternoon or early evening, I would hope to get between 10 and 20 requests back before the next CS day starts. Then 20 or 21 the following CS day. Then I would have till the afternoon of the 3rd CS day before my 48 hours expires, which hopefully would give me the remaining requests. Does that make sense?

It's always tough when they require neighbor requests in a timed goal. Good luck everyone!

Now I am debating how much/if I want to continue this game...they killed Dragon Story on my kindle..bad, just bad business.

Ok I'm still confused. I started the goal as soon as it came out. Completed the first chapter around an hour and a 1/2 later, which was about 5 hours ago. My timer on both accounts is now 28 1/2 hours till the next chapter. I force closed because I read others were getting 2 full days but my timer didn't change.

How much time are we supposed to get for each chapter?

First, Thank you Mods for your good work to help us understand the goals. And, kudos to the bright CS players who share tips.

It IS a game, so I don't complain often. I skip goals, if I can't do them. In this case, the 15 gold nuggets is a considerable amount. Gold nuggets are such a Rare Drop that I have to think about using that many for a new Piggie. Unless, this Piggie drops gold nuggets, eggs, and apples.. LOL. I have to think about the cost/benefit. I do like these 'game within the game' goals.

I totally agree with your comment. I haven't upgraded the arena Bc not sure about parting with those gold nuggets. Bc they are a SUPER ULTRA RARE drop. I've only gotten TWO since the arena update!

And not sure if I'm reading more into the verbage on one of the first few screen shots; but it says something like this "sir hamlet....endless supply of trouffles... I would hope too that this pig drops something great. Like gold poop nuggets.

Between the golden nuggets and the living wood this game is beginning to be a drag. Love playing this game but when goals become so much work and to some cases impossible unless you spend money every week. This game has seemed to change in the past year and not to the best.

09-10-15, 09:17 PM
I have a feeling that the timer is based on when you start the quest, not S8 time. I started a few minutes to 5PM today and chapter 2 unlocks at 5PM Saturday for me. If this pattern continues, then Chapter 6 will unlock in 11 days. I will not have any time to complete the last chapter or will have less than 24hours to complete. This worries me as I will need 3 days to get 50 requests from neighbors.

I'm not at that point in the goals yet, but one thing I noticed was that when I was tending the animals, the option to skip said 40 the whole way through. I thought that odd. Same with the corn and flowers/trees, the gem skip amount stayed the same at 40.

09-10-15, 09:44 PM
Hi all, bear with me please. Just thinking out loud.

I started this at approx 8.30am Friday 11 sept 2015 Australian time. I finished chapter 1 at approx 1.30pm Aust time. My timer said I had 43 hours and 15 minutes left until chapter 2 open ended, or I could use 12 gems to move forward. Forget the gem side for the moment.

That means I cannot start chapter 2 until approx 8.30am on 13 sept 15. Then I need to visit 50 community buildings (not really hard if you find 10 communities with 5 buildings to pick), then collect from 80 of my own buildings - that will take some time, but can be done in a few hours. Then need to part with $500,000. No probs, have some funny money to burn.

If I understand correctly, chapter 3 should commence at the approx same time I started, albeit. With another 2 day wait, so chapter 3 should start for me at approx 8.30am on 15 sept 15.

40 strawberries, then 40 mushrooms/flowers/trees and then 10 ornate beams. No problems, just need to utilise energy efficiently.

If assumptions are correct, chapter 4 won't start until approx 8.30am 17 sep 15. Clear trees, debris and rocks. Once again, just energy efficiency.

Chapter 5, 8.30 am 19 sep 15. Nuggets, magic fruit and prime cuts. I knew there was a reason why I don't do gem trades- nuggets and fruit at the ready.

THEN

50 testimonials. This is where it gets to the nitty gritty. My CS day reset is at approx 5.00pm my time each day. Therefore I could get some responses back between 8.30am and 5.00pm. Then request a second lot after 5.00pm. Then I'll have to wait 24 hours until get the remainder.

TTEN, THEN, THEN - the really unknown comes into factor. What is Chapter 6? Do I have to wait for the 2 day time from 19 sept 15. If so, it's already 21 sept 15. My 11 days expires at approx 6.am on 22 sept 15 (please remember I'm taking Aust time, not s8 or USA time). Either way that leaves a very small margin to complete chapter 6, whatever that may be. After all the steps gone through the it could be a simple case of "congrats, click here for Sir Hammy", OR, it could be jump through the the horse rings you may or may not have got many times over to get there.

Thanks to all that read my thoughts out loud. To those on lower levels, I would suggest you really think about if it is worth it. At the end, we could end up with a little pig that only gives truffles. Easy come, easy go for those.

Back to the 12 gems. If I gemmed to chapter 2 and completed, do I then need to wait another 48 hours and be in the same predicting as above. Cheers and happy gaming all.

Edit. I just posted and for those wondering about the time difference, it is currently 2.48pm Friday 11 sept 15 where I am.

Ps that could be 9/11. Aussies do remember. Blessings to all.

I'm one of the players that gemmed through the golden nugget requirement in upgrading the Jousting Arena. I'm stingy in parting with them and it's taken at least a year to accumulate 21.. Not looking forward to giving them away. I think I'd pay the $5 worth of gems to avoid that...that's my stance on that right now..but it depends on what this Raging Ravenous Bad Boy aka Sweetie Pie Hamlet actually drops? If it's just excess truffles, which I can't stand the sight of anyway, then that's gonna be a "No" and I'll bow out.

Yeah I think Annie is moving so fast because she's gemming through the wait times. So if you gem ahead from one day to the next, you're going to have to wait longer and longer if you don't keep gemming. Hope I'm not misinformed or deluded, etc.

I don't have 500,000 coins, gold nuggets, ornate beams. I could gem through all of that, but the real deal killer for me is 450 gems for the magic fruit I don't have. Hate to miss this. Luck to all

Based on what happened when speeding chapters in DS you are correct. If chapter 2 is supposed to open on Saturday and chapter 3 on Monday (2 days apart) then you would still have to wait until Monday to get chapter 3 even if you started chapter 2 early. Once you start speeding chapters you pretty much need to speed them all or the wait times are unbelievably long. :(

In in the same boat. And i didnt thought about skipping through the jousting arena and not gonna pay 150 gem!!
Im lv 50 and play for over 2 years daily and a few times. I waited with the jousting arena update until i had 5 more for an emergency but not 15!! Cause this is so unreasoneble. Especially since we needed it in one of the last updates so S8 would know that a lot of players would be short.
So either you change from nuggets to eggs or reduce the number!

I didn't check that so well, because I didn't know it would be such an issue. Chapter 1-2 was 10 hrs 43 min waiting. Chapter 2-3 was 34 hrs 16 min...

Sourp4tch didn't write that, Kooky Panda did and it was taken from what was said by us in the forum and hasn't changed since the timer changed. After seeing chapter 5 pics, I'm betting it really was meant to be 2 days per chapter or we would all be dead in the water needing 50 (whatever they were) when we are usually limited to 20 requests per day.

Sorry, it was posted under sourp4tch's name, so I assumed that was who wrote it. Give me a break huh?

With a limit of 20/day, and two days to complete the chapter, will anyone get 50? Given that, all of us will be dead in the water unless we pay what by that time will most likely be a large number of gems. Maybe that is what is expected by that requirement? We know that historically, S8 is hesitant to losen caps like that. Any guesses as to what will happen when we reach that point?


Sorry about the discrepancy! You all were supposed to have 11 days to complete the 6 challenges, not 6 days. Expanding that window to complete the challenges means more time allotted per challenge, but it also means a potentially longer wait time if you finish a challenge early.

Hope you all enjoy this event! Sir Hamlet is eager to meet you all and play with Sir Pigglesworth ^^ <3

Thanks, sourp4tch. This makes more sense. Are you posting as you, or is Kooky posting under your name? This is so confusing.

Does anyone have an idea what Chapter 6 requires yet? My roadblock will likely be the Magic Fruit but I have time to collect it. Nuggets, ornate items and coins are no problem for me, but they will be for some people. Now that I am getting an idea what will be required, I think I can probably finish. It seems that these story books, which at the start look to be so interesting, are set up to stymie more people with extreme requirements than to encourage enjoyment in playing. Yes, I will likely finish, but so many won't be able to fulfill at least one requirement. I find that a bit sad for a game with "story" in the title.

Sorry, I don't have the time or energy to read every post, have we discovered what Sir Hamlet drops? Sir Piggy has been good to me over the years, but Sir Hammy seems to come at quite the price for most of us. I hope he drops a variety of items like Sir Piggy. Last wek Sir Piggy gave me 100 energy. He doesn't do that often, but he has dropped some good things.

I have 2 accounts and started them about 45 minutes apart. Just finished the 'baby' and my wait time until next chapter is about 45 minutes apart also, but the gem skip amount for the 1st one is 23 gems and the other is 12. It's less for the one that took longer to complete tasks and does not change as unlock time gets closer.

This might not matter to me in a few days when I won't have the nuggets to complete chapter 5 though.

Difficult event....

I have the magic fruit, the prime cuts and even the gold nuggets (guess I'm one of the lucky ones: after upgrading the jousting arena, I still have 42 nuggets - but also 90 golden eggs and 25 golden apples)

But, I only have 1 ornate beam... That's gonna cost me LOT of living wood...

Now I understand why I recieved living wood from my neighbours since yesterday. In fact, it's the reason why I suspecter an update... Didn't got the pop-up for the new event until just a few minutes ago... So I'm pretty much behind... Still have to collect the 40 flowers, so I'm curious on how long my waiting time will be till my next chapter.

Anyway, to all trying: good luck!

15 golden nuggets........?!

If it's something we can make or can let it drop ourselves (like magic fruit) that's tough as well, for some very very tough, but 15 pieces of a very very very rare drop.....!

I'm a long time player ((I think I'm going into my third fall as I counted correctly, NW!)), and am maxed on lots, but never ever on golden nuggets or apples (the eggs, yes, totally maxed). Never had over 60 nuggets.
And recently we had to hand them in.
And now 15....

I think that's way too many for such a very rare drop... I read even longtime players like me don't even have 15 now!!

my thoughts exactly.. 5 would be more realistic. especially as we need to get them in 2 days... max collecting from the deep mines in 2 days would be 12 times, supposed we do not sleep more than 3 hours between collecting for a night or two, and that is, IF they would drop a nugget every time, which they do NOT...

also 500.000 coins is a big problem for me in my 2nd game (playing since release on android. now level 40)

like most players i used the golden nuts to make golden piping for upgrading the arena to level 4, stuck at 2, so need to make 3 more.. with golden nuggets i do not have ;(.

in my level 50 game which i play from the start on ios, i've got plenty of everything.
i'm. biljonair almost as nothing needs spending coins on. i even stopped collecting buildings that don't give anything but coins...

please tl/s8 change those too high amounts to say 5 nuggets and 100.000 coins.
for long time players the coins won't matter anyway...

I used to do the Golden Trade in the Exchange occassionally, but stopped that a while back as I hardly get any new golden nuggets.

I really think S8 should heed player feedback.

Having a TIMED goal with rare items required does not make for a happy player base. Yes,we can decide not to continue,but then of course we miss out on the final reward.

The gold nuggets for me are not an issue as I have 28,but do feel for those who have less than 15 :(.

I wish everyone success & that the required items are received in plenty of time.
I don't know if it is just me,but the last few quests have not for me at least been at all enjoyable.

10 ornate beams, 15 gold gold nuggets and 45 magic fruit? I'm a level 40 daily player, but I don't think this will be possible for me. Currently starting with 0 ornate beams, depleted gold nuggets after the equestrian event and 29 magic fruit. I do want Sir Hamlet, but I'm afraid of getting stuck in the middle of the event because of these ridiculous requirements which means wasting my stock.

Hi all, when I finished the chapter one I got an info that I need to wait 10 hours, checking the game 9 h later the counter says 25h !!! Did anyone experience the same thing?? I didn't gem through anything...

I was really happy when I got 2 gold nuggets in the past 2 days but now here I am ..why always the gold nuggets? Why not those gold eggs? They are gold too..well I have 14 nuggets in total and hoping to get one ..if I get that And somehow juggle through those heaps of magic fruits , I still don't have enough prime cuts .I fed that greedy baron a lot and he gave cheap rewards,and I am left with a meager 22 prime cuts..so I'm off to butcher my poor cows and sheep..
Also ,is there a limit of two days for every goal..if I don't get 50 neighbor responses in 2 days ,then what happens?is it like a 12 day timer for 6 chapters together ,where I can proceed with any chapter for more than 2 days?

I have 42 hrs on the counter for the next chapter, and 15 gems to skip

I've major deficit of magic fruit as I've regularly been doing the 15 energy trade. Even with the one magic tree, I won't be able to get 45 fruits in time as both the tree and garden are on 22 hour cycle. Since I started playing about 18 months ago, I've managed to complete all the quests but this is out of reach :-(

09-11-15, 02:23 AM
my thoughts exactly.. 5 would be more realistic. especially as we need to get them in 2 days... max collecting from the deep mines in 2 days would be 12 times, supposed we do not sleep more than 3 hours between collecting for a night or two, and that is, IF they would drop a nugget every time, which they do NOT...

also 500.000 coins is a big problem for me in my 2nd game (playing since release on android. now level 40)

like most players i used the golden nuts to make golden piping for upgrading the arena to level 4, stuck at 2, so need to make 3 more.. with golden nuggets i do not have ;(.

in my level 50 game which i play from the start on ios, i've got plenty of everything.
i'm. biljonair almost as nothing needs spending coins on. i even stopped collecting buildings that don't give anything but coins...

please tl/s8 change those too high amounts to say 5 nuggets and 100.000 coins.
for long time players the coins won't matter anyway...


and another thing.. we can get no more than 21 responses on asking neighbours for something a day..
so how should it be possible to gain 50 in just 2 days... at least 3 needed...

can anyone from s8 answer these questions?

Android user here, level 44. Disappointed that S8 continues to ignore the Android market. However, after reading this thread, I doubt I would enjoy struggling through the foolishness (15 gold nuggets?!) to "win" another pig however adorable he might be. Good luck to my iOS neighbors!


Is it definite that this is for IOS only?
If so, can it please be put in the thread title as it is for the Baron's Tent?


Why is this only for ios? What about all the android players out there?


Soooo by all of us you mean ios users? Very disappointing Android is left out of this event. In response us Android users will leave s8 out of our gaming budget.

I still don't have the free gift bow available, even if god knows a little extra energy wouldn't be amiss with this event...
But i' m really, really flabbergasted about the 15 golden nuggets request.
I have fourteen because i was oarding them to uograde the jousting arena (not happening now, i guess), so maybe if i' m lucky i' m going to get another in the time that it' s going to take to reach that stage of the proceedings...
But if other players have depleted theyr stash, this would be the FIRST TIME in my memories that you simply CAN NOT finish an event because of a resource that couldn't conceivably be obtained in the time frame given... I think that shows a really bad turn for this game...

I was also wondering why the request are being show this way instead of the usual... I really like dialogue and that little box just doesn't cut it... I understand that dialogue can be more time consuming to code, but ....

In reading through the posts, it sounds like it's a different gem cost to speed up to the next chapter for everyone. Why??!!
Also, S8, what's the point of making us wait up to two days to start the next chapter?? This doesn't make sense especially if we need 50 neighbor replies when you can only get 20-21 per day max.
I want the little piggy, but given the resources needed and the wait times in between, I don't know that I will get there.

As others I'm stunned...
15 golden nuggets........?!

If it's something we can make or can let it drop ourselves (like magic fruit) that's tough as well, for some very very tough, but 15 pieces of a very very very rare drop.....!

I'm a long time player ((I think I'm going into my third fall as I counted correctly, NW!)), and am maxed on lots, but never ever on golden nuggets or apples (the eggs, yes, totally maxed). Never had over 60 nuggets.
And recently we had to hand them in.
And now 15....

I think that's way too many for such a very rare drop... I read even longtime players like me don't even have 15 now!!

I agree. Why not make it a combination of 15 gold things. I have lots of eggs - guess my chickens are happy

Apples are easy to find - they grow on the apple tree.

I wish these games had a trade facility for proper stuff, the trades at present are for that no-one needs, we should be able to choose what to trade and for what (within reason). But I would happily trade with neighbours, I have no need for all my fruit!

OR

We should be able to upgrade our stores so we can hold say double?

Yes the eggs do seem to drop more readily than nuggets, I only have 11 nuggets so need to hope I can get some to drop from the mines, everything else is easy so far, with plenty of stockpiled fruit etc - 99 of everything (i know I keep saying it - but we need to be able to increase our stores capacity)

So here' my question...if we have to wait 2 days to start the next chapter...in 6 days, i will only be on chapter 3...what am i missing?? Another post on page one said if you speed it up, those 2 days are added to the next...so wait 4 days instead of 2????? Do you have to speed up everytime? Does it increase from 15 gems each time?? My timer for chapter 2 is 48 hrs.

Next question...we recently were encouraged to upgrade, and it uses gold nuggets, so of course i used my very few to make gold pipes! Ugh! Are we really able to get 15?!?! I cant get 5!! LOL

Lastly, i saw once how to get some neighbors..can anyone tell me where to find it?

Thank you in advance!

I'm currently falling short on the requirements too. So are several of my long time playing friends. But my friend that is not yet as far down the road of the main story, happily declared that he found all the required items in storage. What? :eek: Why is this, when I'm usually always better prepared than he is? :confused:
Well, he probably haven't gotten to the part of the story yet when these resources are depleted.

It is quite funny when you think about it. All this time we lvl50+ players have been complaining about assignments being too few, too short, no real challenge etc, while lvl 20-30 have been sweating. Finally CS has found a way to keep us all on our toes. :rolleyes: They've successfully managed to design an assignment that distributes players into a system similar to giving handicaps in golf. Some sweat over the coins, others over the neighbour requests, the magic fruit, the ornate beams or the nuggets. Very few are allowed to feel that they are entitled to win the price.

I am not sure if I will succeed and be allowed to adopt Hamlet, but I will try my best... by collecting from both deep mines and chop as many of my 19 stored dark cave formations necessary to get those nuggets.

And if I fail, I will gracefully accept.
And instead go back to mourning that darn never-appearing Clock Tower which I lost without ever having a shot on.:(


Ps. I enjoy the bidaily goals but I too miss the intimacy and fun of the conversations with the town characters. Hope they'll be back next time!:)

I am starting to believe that this may be the first prize I miss out on since I started playing. I am one of the fortunate ones who actually has enough coins, nuggets, ornate beams and magic fruit. What will defeat me is the timers. Yesterday after completing chapter 1, my timer said 10 hours until chapter 2. A few minutes later it changed to 33 1/2 hours. (Currently 19 hours to go). I'm seeing some people here who have 40 hour plus wait times. And if I understand correctly, speeding up the timer will result in even longer waits between chapters. (Apparently they are set to unlock between 1 1/2 to 2 days apart and between 12-24 gems to speed up, depending on how each game is coded)
Thanks to Annie, (a great big huge thank you!!) we also know that we have neighbor requests coming up that will require 3 days for most of us, leaving either 1/2 or 1 day to complete the last chapter. (Which is fine if it's something as simple as tapping 'claim your prize', but I'm doubtful it'll be that easy.)
I do NOT want to give up all these rare drops, only to have the goal expire before reaching the end. (especially the gold nuggets....why can't it EVER be the golden eggs?!? considering that those are essentially useless.)

So basically, I'm doing the first few chapters, the energy burns, hoping to learn what chapter 6 requires before giving away my precious nuggets and magic fruit.


And if TL/S8 staff would please explain the discrepancies between the chapter timers and the gem skip costs, that would be great!

This is reminding me of the events in RS2 back before they alienated all their players away. Some of them required recipes at the end that only high level players had. That generated a lot of angry forum posts for every event. What I think players were overlooking is that the prizes for each chapter are also valuable. I only have four gold nuggets myself, so that will be my stopping point, but it sounds like I will wind up with a building that generates fertilizer and a toy that generates wool, and probably more. That'll be better than what I had at the start of the event, so I'll be satisfied.

I have been playing for quite a while... I have never had that many nuggets. I'm still working on collecting them for 'needs more sparkle'... So guess who's stopping after chapter one? C'mon guys... Not attainable without gemming is not fun for anyone. :p

09-11-15, 06:35 AM
I'm reading all the posts and it seems like the length of time between chapter 1 and chapter 2 is varying by about 12 hours. Some folks seem to be able to start chapter 2 about 48 hours after the event started. I'll be able to start chapter 2 just 35 hours after the event start. This continues to be very confusing.

So at 9:30 am Friday morning east coast US, approx 17 1/2 hours after this event started, I have 17 hours 31 minutes left till chapter 2 starts. My event expires in 10 days, 17 hours.

One thing that particularly concerns me is that my new chapter start time will coincide with the start of the CS day (or possibly an hour difference). That is when you can start receiving new responses to neighbor requests. By being matched with the CS day, I will only have 2 CS days to get my 50 neighbor requests, which is impossible with their limit of 20/21 per CS day.

If instead my timer was set for 48 hours after the event started, I would have approximately 12 hours to get responses back before the CS day resets. Then I have 24 hours to get another 20 or so. Then I would still have 12 hours left in my 48 hour period when a new CS day starts. Ok, I'd be sleeping the first 4 hours or so, but I'd probably have a good 8 hours to get my remaining requests back. My 48 hours would span 3 CS days in that scenario. It's still challenging, but it's not impossible.

I guess I will end up taking more than 48 hours to complete this. -- and as far as we understand, we are not given a time limit within each chapter, right? The time limits are between the starts of new chapters, plus the overall time limit. So however much extra time I need will shorten the amount of time I have to complete chapter 6. Can anyone confirm?

I thought I read that in other S8 games that lower level players are given different requirements to complete their chapters. Hopefully that will be the case here. Many of these requirements are daunting for level 50 players.

That said, if you need ornate beams, you might try sending your nights on the Traverse the Desert Sands Adventure if you can make the sweet feasts and armor. That adventure does drop ornate supplies, although there is no guarantee that you will get an ornate beam. And if you are really desperate, you could consider doing the ornate building supply trade in the royal exchange in the hopes of getting a beam. Most people wouldn't want to spend their trade tickets that way, but everyone is different.

I'm so confused. After completing level 1, I had a 32 hour wait time where it seemed most people had 10 hours. I decided to speed it up because I hadn't read here and was excited to keep going. I just finished level 2 and now I have an 87 hour wait time! This is going to be impossible because of the neighbor requests. I have the nuggets fortunately but doing the math, it just won't work.

It really doesn't make any sense that they don't give any advantage to someone who would gem ahead. Don't they want people to spend gems?

I'm finding these timed events to be too frequent and too stressful. They are taking too much of the fun out of the game. Before I stopped playing DS and FS2 altogether (in response to gem traps), I was avoiding those games during their special events - too demanding of my time and resources. I'm sorry that they've become such an integral part of CS. I never felt CS needed these events since we had a real story that could keep us engaged.

Really makes no sense that the timer combines both previous wait time & the next chapter wait time when gemming ahead. That clock is running for 11-12 days no matter how many times you speed up to the next chapter. Who came up with this? There's no point in speeding ahead then if the clock never changes! Why waste your gems?
And how does S8 think anyone's gonna get 50 responses from nbrs in 48 hrs?
I really don't think anyone at S8 plays this game or even tests updates before releasing them. How many times in the last months have they needed to make adjustments after players discovered something wrong, example: timer being wrong on the 1st day of this one.
I don't know where they're heading with this game but it sure has taken a left turn toward the wrong side of town.

Am on level 24 and may level up in time, but I don't have near 500,000 cash for the third goal. And then 100,000 more for ornate beams? Is this right from looking at the posted goal steps? Am about half way through level 24. Will be so disappointed if I have to stop but don't want to continue if I won't be able to finish. Not wanting to buy cash really Opinions? Tips? Thanks!
