The hunt begins anew! Ready thy swords, brave kings and queens, and let us fell every beast within our lands! Any foul creature which rears its ugly head shall be slain by our hands! Do not show those monsters any mercy! Everyone... chaaaaaarge!!!

[==This season requires Level 22+, and is live from 09/24 @ 12pm to 10/05 @ 11:30am.==]

I've been playing a game! Have you figured out this week's answer? The answer is: TRADE


I checked with the team and we've recently adjusted how frequently gems can drop from trades. Sorry for the confusion!

Drops from Statues:
Skunkupine Statue: shield tokens (around 5 per collection)
Fangbeast Statue: sword tokens (around 2 per collection)
Dire boar Statue: staff tokens (around 1 per collection)


Tips and Tricks:
* DON'T tap the troll pit!!!! Regular trolls don't drop tokens. Neither do pink skunkupines, pink alicorn or wedding alicorn.
* Monsters also drop their normal items in addition to the tokens
* Do the Novice Hunter Trade if you are nearly maxed on Shield tokens so that they don't go to waste

Link to Information Nugget on Beasts (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?78732-Nugget-5-Beasts) extract:
Skunkupine - Flowers, Corn, Wheat, Sugar, Tomato, Fellora Plant, Pepe, some Trees, Plants, Skunkupine Trap (5 gems)
Fangbeast - Animals, Hot Pepper, Carrot, Trees, some Buildings, Fangbeast Trap (5 gems)
Dire Boar - Cabbage, Cocoa, Strawberry, Glimmer Bulbs, Buildings, Goddess Tree, Multi Flowered Hedge, Mushrooms, Pond, Well, Dire Boar Trap (5 gems), Rock Outcropping


The Daily Hunt - iOS only- each day you will have the chance to battle a monster to get Tokens. There are 3 types of Daily Hunts:
1. Novice Challenge - defeat 5 skunkupines or fangbeasts [10 energy crate]
2. Adept Challenge - collect from a pond to trigger a blue dire boar (30 hits) [10 energy crate]
3. Sovereign Challenge - collect from a glimmerdust trove to trigger a purple golem (90 hits) [25 energy crate]
Reward for each hunt is an energy crate - it goes to your inventory so you can chop it anytime you want!
Note: you get multi hits on each sword hit, so a 30 hit monster might only take 20 energy.


The Tokens! - You can have a max of 120 of each of these in inventory
Shield Token - awarded upon attacking skunkupines, fangbeasts, dire boars and glimmer golems
Sword Tokens - awarded upon slaying fangbeasts, dire boars and glimmer golems

Gold Tokens - ONLY come from crafting the Sovereign Hunter Trade

I am in the process of crafting Night Glimmer Sword. Literally - it will be ready tonight. Should I hold off collecting it?

Glimmer Golems are still showing up at Glimmer Gate. I know because I just tapped it, and one did. My understanding is that once Night Glimmer Sword is complete, Griselda will appear. So my questions are:

Does beating on Griselda's 100(?) hit points produce tokens? If yes, it may be well worth while.
Will Glimmer Golems stop appearing after I defeat Griselda?

These statues are no longer just decorations. They have a 22hr time and I am guessing when you collect them they spawn the appropriate monster so you can earn more tokens defeating it.

So far, I haven't got a boar or golem to spawn in my Android kingdom. I do get tokens from fang beasts though. But if I only get tokens from them and skunkupines, it is going to a good, long while to reach 99 gold tokens. I'm level 22. Does that make a difference, I wonder?

You can only buy one extra of the statues. At least that's how it works with the Skunkupine statue. I had the one from last season, got my second one with saved gold tokens, and now the option to buy Skunkupine statues is gone.

No, the Skunkupine statues have timers, both of them:)

Glimmer golems count. Check the back of th inventory card for each coin to see where the coins can be obtained.


I can't remember but I think the glimmer gate ones might not have counted... Check the discussion thread from last time...

I'd hold off completing it for now. Glimmer golems DO count. ;)


I am in the process of crafting Night Glimmer Sword. Literally - it will be ready tonight. Should I hold off collecting it?

Glimmer Golems are still showing up at Glimmer Gate. I know because I just tapped it, and one did. My understanding is that once Night Glimmer Sword is complete, Griselda will appear. So my questions are:

Does beating on Griselda's 100(?) hit points produce tokens? If yes, it may be well worth while.
Will Glimmer Golems stop appearing after I defeat Griselda?

Very confused...
Last monster hunt I got all monster statues and the last statue. They are on my board and do not have a timer on them telling me they will drop anything. Also, in my TRADE WAGON, I don't have the trade to turn shields into GOLD COINS!!! So, how am I supposed to get gold coins if I can't make them?? I have new craft statues in there but the "I think it was called" sovereign trade to turn shields into gold coins is not there???

99 makes it sound like it's your actual glimmer dust, not the troves. The glimmer dust trove is a gem bought item that drops glimmer dust. They can also be found in crates from adventures.

You will need to store the statues and then put them back out. The sovereign trade should appear in your trade wagon just above the skunkupine statue offer.

You are a GENIUS, I stored the statues and put them back out an VOILA, 22hr timer started. I guess I was wrong about the sovereign trade, I have that. For some reason I though the trade was showing a big gold coin as the reward. But, I just did the sovereign trade and got a bunch of stuff and the gold coin. I am all set.. THANKS! Is the SOVEREIGN trade the only one where you can get a cold coin?

I don't have that many other tokens, but I guess it works the same for those as well. That said, I still think it'll be impossible to collect 99 golden tokens in time?!

You may want to do the Novice trade when you reach 120 shield tokens since that's the max. The novice trade will reward you about 5 staff tokens which is the hardest one to get.

So far, I haven't got a boar or golem to spawn in my Android kingdom. I do get tokens from fang beasts though. But if I only get tokens from them and skunkupines, it is going to a good, long while to reach 99 gold tokens. I'm level 22. Does that make a difference, I wonder?

Does it make sense to buy the second statues as you go along to accumulate 99 tokens for the cooking camp? That would add another 85 gold tokens to your needed haul in addition to the 99 for the cooking camp. Since each statue only spawns 1 additional monster per day so I can't see the math working out for making it easier to get the cooking camp if you buy additional statues along the way.

I don't think they are getting the extra statues for help in getting cooking camp. They are probably getting them as extra, working on their own goals outside of/or in addition to just getting cooking camp. As for myself, it was just forgetting about needing gold coins and assuming it was something new. At least I only did it on 2nd kingdom. You are right the math just doesn't work out as helping.

If S8 isn't going to give Android players the daily hunt, the least they can do is let us trade our sword tokens for something without also trading away the shield tokens. Without the 30 hit blue dire boar and 90 hit glimmer golem, it's really hard to get 75 shield tokens without maxing out on sword tokens. Right now I'm 18-73-19 for shield-sword-staff tokens.

Some time between when I looked yesterday and when my statues were ready for collection, the wording in the trade wagon changed from them attracting beasts to them dropping tokens. I don't think they will do both, and personally I am happy with the tokens.

Firstly, commenting on player styles and whether they gem skip or not etc etc is off topic and not constructive to this thread or the CS forum. I will be removing all these posts as they are against forum rules. I'm happy for a thread to go a bit off topic if we are having fun, but these posts are critical and not acceptable. Happy for you to disagree, just don't do it in thread.

Back to the monster hunt.
1. Statue drops have been added. Given that there has only been time for one collection, we don't know if they drop more than coins.
2. Jousting arena I just guessed so I have updated post 2 to say only a Level 5 arena will spawn a monster.

Thanks.

Skunkie statues dropped 4/2 shield tokens, fangbeast statue 2 sword tokens, dire boar statue 2 staff tokens.

My results from collecting on 2 accounts: my skunkie dropped 3 and 5 shield, fangbeast dropped 3 and 2 sword, boar dropped 1 staff each.

I don't know if this will help anyone but I have discovered a little trick that will help if you have access to both Android and IOS devices.

I used to play on an original ipad which by now is pretty old and crashes my normal (just turned) level 50 game. When I got a new tablet earlier this year I got android as I prefer it generally, obviously this means I have been at a massive disadvantage playing CS ever since ��

During the last Monster Hunt I only managed to get 4 gold tokens, which really sucked. So this time I decided to try and see if I could get the game to work on the ipad again. After practically stripping my kingdom bare and leaving only necessary buildings, flowers etc out I finally got it to load on the ipad and I got the daily trades.

The trick I discovered is, if I spawn the beasties on my ipad (blue boar via pond) battle them till they're down to the last few energy (collecting shield tokens all the way of course), give the game a minute to save itself and then force close. THEN open the game on my Android tablet and finish the beast off in there, it gives me a wodge of sword, staff and shield tokens for finishing, but not the energy crate. Again, give the game a minute to save and force close again. Go back onto the game in the ipad and voil?, daily trade is still available and visiting the pond spawns ANOTHER blue boar ��

So far today I've spawned that little bugger 4 times and I'm already up to 8 gold tokens and have gained 4 extra gems and plenty of items by doing novice trades with the excess of shield tokens I have.
Yes, my kingdom looks horribly bare and it can be a slight pain, but for a change I have an advantage.

Hope that all made sense, wanted to share it for anyone who could have/get access to both devices.
Happy Hunting.

I was surprised to get tokens rather than the beasts themselves, so I didn't keep track of what I actually collected. And the level 4 Arena does not spawn any monsters. The junior account is busily trying to get the last few $K to upgrade to level 5.

yeah, nice trick.. but i am not so sure if it was wise to put it on here..

i'm almost sure that won't work for much longer. as TL is very quick in adjusting this kind of advantages (just remember how our second alicorn that escaped on the first kidnapping got taken away too after mentioning here there were nbs who still had 2)

wished they were just as driven to fix same gameplay for android/ios players and some other things that do still need looking after.

Monster Hunt Event Season 2! (September 2015)
prepared by SpiritWind.


New for Season 2

2. Blythewood trees will spawn monsters






I think it should say Blythewood trees CAN spawn monsters.

I grew and chopped 4 Blythewood trees. Only 1 monster spawned, from the fourth chop of the first tree.
(Yes, I removed it from the board before continuing chopping the other trees). My guess is there are quicker, cheaper and less space consuming trees (and rocks) out there that give you a chance on random monster drops.

But hardly better looking ones :o

I did consider that, but if the two platforms are SO different that us Android players can't get the same gameplay as IOS players because it involves too much work, then I doubt they'd go to too much trouble to fix something that probably less than 1% of players can take advantage of.
Regardless, I'd rather share the info so a few others can take advantage as well, even if it only lasts a day or so, it's better than nowt. If nothing else we have the weekend to exploit it.

I honestly don't think it'll be fixed easily though. It's annoying having started on ipad as I gained the "wonderful" barons tent on there, because it can't be stored I now have a 'blank' patch on my Android kingdom that I can't place anything on because that's where the tent is on my ipad kingdom 😠 grrrrr, lol.

Anyhoo, I'm off to spawn that bluie for the 6th time 😉 hehe xxxx

The Daily Hunt

Yes, iOS only. I'll amend the first page to make that clearer.
...
Yes, it's going to take quite a few seasons to get enough for the camp. Aim for 5-10 for a season.
thanks for clarification, miss Spirit!

well then, i cannot imagine how many seasons android will need to get that camp.

i had 3 coins from 1st season, and now i traded one more coin - mostly from leftovers.
nothing to talk about 10 per season. will be 5, hardly 6 this time.

need 15-20 seasons more, often how much?
each 2 months?
6 seasons per year?
so, 3-4 years to get the camp?!

whoever invented this - he's a really optimistic guy! lol :D

I'm with you!!:D Just spent 60 energy, tended all the cows and most of the chickens, plus lots of buildings that attract boars, and got exactly one skunkupine, and that was from the jousting arena. When it's not hunting season, I can't clear 3 cows without a fangbeast and conservatories always bring boars. Monster hunts work better than parking a beastie! Heehee. :rolleyes:

Which tokens are you getting the most of?

I seem to always have too many staff tokens (currently 102) and very few sword tokens (currently 21) with shield somewhere inbetween (currently 57). It's quite annoying as there is no staff token trade to use up the excess (I can only do the lucky token exchange and hope that the ratio is redistributed favourably - usually isn't!).

I'm guessing you are an android player or don't have the daily quests for the two special blue and purple monsters each day. Because those take so many hits I end up having an excess of shield, which works out because once I hit 100 I do the novice trade. Staff on the other hand are much more difficult for me to get.

The gems was my favorite part of the event season one too :) it's nice getting 3-6 extra a day. I'm thinking of buying something new soon (can never sit on too many and have over 100) I've been wanting the Faerie Skunkhouse a while as it looks so cute and the drops are useful for me, although I'm questioning holding out for the Holliday events coming up as there are so many and a gem item likely to appear. Haha the torture we go through on what to do with these new found gems!

No, I'm on iOS and get the blue & purple monsters. I can do the novice trade to get rid of a few shields, so that I don't max out, but I still have loads of excess staff tokens I can do nothing with! It's the sword tokens I'm struggling to get!
I'm currently maxed out on staff tokens (so any excess are going to waste) and I can't trade them until I have 50 sword tokens - I only had about 24, so I tried the novice trade to swap some shields and got my swords up to 41, but I'm still maxed out of staffs, so they are going to waste until I can trade for a gold coin.

Ah I got you, this is strange. My only other suggestion is the type of monster you are focusing on. From the firs page:

Shield Token - awarded upon attacking skunkupines, fangbeasts, dire boars and glimmer golems
Sword Tokens - awarded upon slaying fangbeasts, dire boars and glimmer golems
Staff Tokens - awarded upon attacking dire boars, blue dire boars and glimmer golems

So focus on the fangbeasts and dire boars. I seems to get higher rates with dire boars personally so plant lots of strawberries, coco, and collect from mines and seem to have luck with them, although I am sure it is written out everything that spawns them.

It is the sword token that I am always waiting on last too for sovereign trade, but never enough that I had maxed out on staff. Good luck to you!

We have exactly the same approach. :). I also have to wait a little for swords to catch up, but generally get enough shields for a novice trade or 2 which give me swords anyway.

However almost dreaming nightmares about wasting goldcoins on extra statues.

Btw, has anyone done the math, best way to get gold shields are to buy them(50gems) or dire Bore traps(5 gem).?

Not sure if they return at the same time each day or a day after you've completed them. Hoping they show up for you soon.
If you get lots of beasts just send them my way, they're pretty rare in my Queendom right now... Lol ... It's gonna take a few more seasons before we'll even get close to 99 coins.:D

Oh that's horrible!

I have been paranoid about hitting the wrong button in the trade wagon. Today I was thinking about your post, reminding myself that I have to be sooooo careful whenever I'm about to do a trade in the trade wagon. Then 5 minutes later, I peeked in the wagon to see how many more tokens I needed to do the sovereign trade. I got distracted by a cough, then accidentally hit the un-lucky trade button! Nooooooo! I crossed my fingers that maybe this time it could actually be a lucky trade but it wasn't. I lost 1 shield, 5 sword and 1 staff tokens. Still no where near what you lost!

I know S8 is not fond of confirmation buttons, but it would be nice if they added one for all the trades in the trades wagon!

Just got my statue too. I'll have to see if monsters still show up and if the daily ones show up tomorrow. Only 10 gold tokens so I'm right there with you - that cooking camp is definitely not opening any time soon!

(In reply to post #210) Alas, I did get the daily monster trade, I had gotten the first ones at noon, but yesterday I had not done the trades until after 4:00 pm so everything of course was delayed the same! Thank you meme.

Still getting monsters even though I got the statute a few days ago. I agree rate has dropped but hopefully enough to get a few more gold coins in addition to the dailies :)

SpiritWind is there any chance you could pass on our comments about the disadvantages for Android players? I realise it's probably not going to be possible for us to get the Daily Hunt, but maybe it would be possible for us to get something when we collect from our Glimmer Dust Troves. What do you think? Pretty please. :cool:

you need to go to the Jousting Arena Renovations (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?83751-Castle-Story-08-06-Update-Jousting-Arena-Renovations-%28levels-4-amp-5%29&p=1154230&viewfull=1#post1154230) thread.

Note: the horse statues don't come up until you have completed the market and neighbour visits

Can't believe the same thing just happened to me. My husband texted me while I was collecting my 14th coin and when I swiped to reply to him I must have hit the bbbbbb.........******* skunkupine statue. Sooooooo annoyed didn't want the silly thing as I already have one.


Oh that's horrible!

I have been paranoid about hitting the wrong button in the trade wagon. Today I was thinking about your post, reminding myself that I have to be sooooo careful whenever I'm about to do a trade in the trade wagon. Then 5 minutes later, I peeked in the wagon to see how many more tokens I needed to do the sovereign trade. I got distracted by a cough, then accidentally hit the un-lucky trade button! Nooooooo! I crossed my fingers that maybe this time it could actually be a lucky trade but it wasn't. I lost 1 shield, 5 sword and 1 staff tokens. Still no where near what you lost!

I know S8 is not fond of confirmation buttons, but it would be nice if they added one for all the trades in the trades wagon!

SW My unwanted skunkupine statue is obviously feeling the lack of love and refuses to leave the trade caravan. I can't place him on the board. As soon as I put him on a free space he runs straight back to his crate above the trade caravan, now that I've erroneously traded for him I would like to put him on the board and get some tokens from him. Please help. Has this happened to anyone else?

Oh ignore this, I put him in storage first and then bought him out and he was obviously feeling a bit shy, now he is happy to stay near his friends

this question has already been answered a few pages back AND IN POST 2
it says "DURING" that means, if the monsterhunt has ended nothing will drop anymore...

you are right, it's not (yet) in post 2, but i read it in the trade wagon
and since everything that drops if needed for a certain goal stops dropping if thatt goal is fi ished it seems to me the tokens also will only drop during monster hunt times...

totalwasteoftime
09-30-15, 10:34 AM
Which tokens are you getting the most of?

I seem to always have too many staff tokens (currently 102) and very few sword tokens (currently 21) with shield somewhere inbetween (currently 57). It's quite annoying as there is no staff token trade to use up the excess (I can only do the lucky token exchange and hope that the ratio is redistributed favourably - usually isn't!).

I'm IOS so get plenty of shield from the daily hunts and trade those in with the novice trade when I'm close on the sword tokens needed for the gold token trade, but I too am about maxed out on the staff tokens and the sovereign trade doesn't use very many and the lucky trade isn't that lucky, so I just stay with excess of them.

So as I was going along tapping and hoping to trigger beasts, I got a lovecupine (which I'd never seen before - I started playing in fall 2014) and now have a goal in my goal book "Beat up the ...Lovecupines" and I've beaten up 1/5. I also have the "craft a homemade sword" as an option in my workshops. Is the monster hunt resurrecting old beasts or is this a bug (in which case I'll post it on that thread)?

No it's not a bug, probably your wedding alicorn triggered it. I think it's a throw back to a Valentine event before I started playing the game.You don't need to make a new sword. One of my games I finished the 5 very quickly even though I only had the wedding alicorn. My other game I couldn't trigger the pink pests for weeks but eventually completed 5. Sadly they don't count towards the monster hunt. Once you've slain 5 the quest is over. So I wouldn't advise using gems

I suspect you aren't alone! On my second game which is on an android phone I've seen an awful lot of trolls during this monster hunt. I'm not at the part of the game when I'm expecting trolls either, and I steered clear of the troll pit, but I was getting them in all the places where I'd expect a fangbeast, boar or skunkupine and they started up with this event. I was in despair of ever getting the statue but then I discovered that chopping rocks and trees or harvesting sugar cane got me the right type of monsters. So now I think I'll be OK. Not that the statue is much use at the moment. Maybe next season ...

I accidentally bought the blasted skunkupine statue. I had been contemplating the fangbeast statue once I got enough gold coins. But I sure didn't need the skunky one.

And I also had issues with placing it on the board. But since I remembered the statues had to go into storage and back out to be collectible, I went that route also.

I dont mind when other buildings trigger trolls..I get them all the time..I'm only concerned that a level5 jousting arena triggered a troll. It was supposed to be an additional source of monsters during monster hunts. I thought some useful monster which drops tokens...not a troll

Please SpiritWind, can you send feedback that nobody wants a troll from a level5 jousting arena in a monster hunt..pretty please!?

Considering the fact that I now have a whopping 10 gold coins it is going to take a huge amount of these events for me to ever reach the 99 required. Not very fun at all.

10-01-15, 06:05 AM
At the moment I don't see a real benefit of having the cooking camp. But I really don't see a benefit of having more statues either. Maybe there will be some better trades for gold coins later on in the game.

I LOVE the monster hunt because I can stock up on gems and energy then use them in the game after the hunt has ended. I don't actually care about the cooking camp. I mostly do novice hunter trades, getting 1-3 gems fast. I've earned about 30+ gems, seven 25 energy crates and thirteen 10 energy crates SO FAR which will come in really handy during other quests. Monster hunt to me is the BEST season on castle story. Hehe hoard hoard hoard.

Just wasted 140 energy and no monsters. Then I got a missing alicorn part (horn) from castle, so real happy :) I guess it evens out in the end.

However almost dreaming nightmares about wasting goldcoins on extra statues.

Btw, has anyone done the math, best way to get gold shields are to buy them(50gems) or dire Bore traps(5 gem).?

Gonna answer myself... Gem wise it's way smarter to just buy the gold shield than any traps...

Same here. It will take me like 6 months to collect all the coins, having boring battles with animals and another 4 months to collect gold nuggets for some other goal. And the grooming mits .... Goals that need a long time to reach are just boring and it does not give a good feeling any more once they are (finally) reached. I hope for a halloween event ... hopefully without gold nuggets.

So, I'm an Android player, so no daily quests, but I was lucky enough to be in the middle of the Troll Tribe #1 quest line when this season started, so I've been getting dire boars about every 5 energy spent (or 2 energy spent on ponds). This has meant I've been doing about one Adept and one Sovereign trade per day. I started playing just a few days after the end of Season 1, so I had basically no tokens to start, and I've just gotten my 10th gold one. I do plan on building the swampy pond as soon as this monster season is over, but based on what I've heard from others, the sword tokens are in short supply? Right now, my sword tokens over flow; in the time it takes me to get 25 staff tokens, I get about 125 shields, so I can do the Adept+Sovereign, but that uses only 75 sword tokens, and I probably get 100 in the same amount of time.

Should I spend my 10 gold coins now on a skunkupine statue, so I can do more adept trades this season? Or should I save my coins for a fangbeast or dire boar statue next season (or later...)?
