Food is plentiful this time of year! Everyone in the kingdom is preparing and sharing their favorite dishes. Anyone have any special traditions? Share them with your friends and neighbors, and let's all have a massive meal together! This season, we'll have the greatest food frenzy of all!

[==Update requires Level 17+ to participate, and is live from 11/26 @ 12pm to 12/03 @ 11:30am==]

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


There is a glitch collecting feasts. Please wait until this is fixed... SW

Hey everyone! I'm here and looking into the things you all are reporting.

Each of the feasts listed in the first quest (Simple, Hearty, Sweet, Divine, etc.) should all drop some number of Offerings. Please let me know and email support@storm8.com if this is not the case!


Hey guys,

We've found the issue and are working to correct it! Thanks for reporting it to us, and sorry you all are experiencing this issue ><

Yes, every feast listed in the first quest (Simple, Hearty, Sweet, etc.) should drop at least 1 Offering - depending on the feast, it could drop more than 1.


Hey everyone,

We're currently testing the fix! As soon as we confirm the fix, I'll let you guys know - at that point, Offerings will once again resume dropping from Feasts, and the Potluck Feast will return to the Kitchen, so long as you have any of the event's quests active.

Sorry again for the issue!

-sourp4tch

RESOLVED

Everything should be resolved now! Offerings should now drop from all 6 of the valid feasts from both the Kitchen and the Cooking Camp, even if you've already placed the Food Shelter. The Potluck Feast should also now be in the Kitchen, even if you've already placed the Food Shelter.

We also added a gem reward to the end of the quest chain, for turning in the Potluck Feast.

For anyone who has not yet opened the game, the Food Shelter will unlock upon completing the quest chain, for turning in the Potluck Feast.

Sorry again for the issue with this LE! Hope everyone has a pleasant holiday weekend <3 Eat lots of delicious food! ^^


For clarity, everyone who logged in prior to the fix will still have the Food Shelter unlocked. The Food Shelter will only be locked for anyone who has not yet logged in to the game.

Whether or not you have the Food Shelter unlocked, and whether or not you have already placed the Food Shelter, you will now be able to collect Offerings and craft the Potluck Feast.

Does the Food Shelter give a bigger offering once you've completed the quest?

Not the Food Shelter itself, but the quest chain that was originally supposed to unlock the Food Shelter in the Market. It's just a little something to make those quests a little more worth your while if you already had the Food Shelter unlocked :)

So, there are now 2 places with a Gem Reward:
-The quest which unlocks the Food Shelter (this is the new one)
-The quest to place the Food Shelter

The Food Shelter
limited time event - available to all players who are Level 17+

Notes on the Event
* Which kitchen can I use? only the Kitchen and Cooking Camp will drop Offerings from the 6 feasts. The Winter Bakery does NOT drop offerings.
* I don't have the Food Shelter yet, why? It is the reward for completing this event. More info in post 1.

* Where do I get Offerings from? From cooking any feast
* How many Offerings do I get? You get multi offering drops for each feast you make and collect
Drop Reports:
Simple Feast - 3, 6
Hearty Feast - 7, 14
Spicy Feast - 12
Sweet Feast - 25
Mercury Feast - 1 - maybe this number has been coded incorrectly... 2 reports now of only 1 drop. SW
Potluck Feast -


* What is the Potluck Feast? you use 40 offering to make this feast
* What is the Devine Feast? ignore reference to this feast; it's irrelevant and not part of the goal. SW

* Maximum offerings in inventory is 45.

I don't think Simple Feasts count. I think the feast has to be one of the ones we could see in the picture in the kitchen. I can't see the option now in my kitchen and I think that's because I'm ooking a Mercury Feast which I could see in the picture.

If your talking about part 1 I had a simple feast ready to go collected from it and it moved me to part 2. Which is cook any feasts and gather 10 offerings, I guess it's not cook any 10 feasts. The way it was written was confusing

Woohoo!!! Finally the Castle Story gods are shining down on my kingdom. I just spent the last 24 hours making sure I am fully stocked up on every fruit and veggie you could think of. Plus I was already playing when the quest began.
Ooooo something tells me I'm gonna like this quest.

vaso1908
11-26-15, 01:14 PM
I received three offerings from a simple feast. After that I crafted two more and didn't receive any. So it isn't a guaranteed drop I guess.

I also didn't get an offering... I'm on goal 2 (cook 10 feasts) and collected a second simple feast, nada. Also the option to cook the divine feast is gone from my kitchen. It certainly was there when I started the goal, showing 0/40...

If the Divine Feast takes 40 feast to craft it... then that's where all the feast will end up :(

LillieNomi
11-26-15, 01:23 PM
Mmh, ok I just realised that the second goal actually is "gather 10 offerings" not "cook 10 feasts"... So it's not a guaranteed drop as mentioned above.? But I'd still like to know why the option for crafting the potluck (that's what it was) is gone from my kitchens...

Be patient people. Stop wasting gems to speed up. Just leave the feasts to cook, then put the game down, set a timer for collecting, and go chill and relax. The game is supposed to be for fun, not to make yourself more stressful...

Edit: My apologies if my above message sounded blunt. What I meant to say is that, from past track records, the game tends to have issues and bugs during early on of the event, so it's usually not a good idea to jump right in and start skipping with gems early in the event. It's your hard earned money (gems), so please use them wisely. I'm indeed thankful for the ones who use gems to skip forward so that we know what to expect, but seeing people getting angry and stressed right off the bat because they skipped with gems and didn't get what they want, really makes the thread frustrating to read. (And yes, it's S8's fault for releasing a buggy update, not the players'.)

Same thing happened to me. Divine feast option is now gone. I had cooked two simple feasts with the first goal. collected the first and was moved to the cook 10 goal. then collected the second one and it did not count as one of the ten. No offering. Did a force quit and no change. Went back to the goal in the book and clicked "cook" and it took me to the hearty feast. Now cooking just one. And not cooking in the winter bakery until it's confirmed that counts. I have enough ingredients to make 4 sweet feasts but don't want to waste them.

Hey everyone! I'm here and looking into the things you all are reporting.

Each of the feasts listed in the first quest (Simple, Hearty, Sweet, Divine, etc.) should all drop some number of Offerings. Please let me know and email support@storm8.com if this is not the case!

I got fish for the first simple feast. Looks like flour for the next ten feasts. It is listed along the bottom with rewards. Sorry can not figure out how to do pictures. Thought Divine feast was a mistake & they meant the Dessert feast. I will look more closely when this batch of feasts are done. Very jealous of those with a winter bakery

sorry to say, but last time you asked to report a bug to support it took almost a week to get a reply which (as usual) did not make any sence. although i mentioned you did ask us to report, they suggested that i should read the forum for answers...

so i think mailing support is useless and waist of time and posting on the forum works better.

Well, got a bug, go through the things i've done cause i know some one will ask, have you ....

started the Happy Feasting quest and got part one and part two, up to part three which was Prepare the potluck feast. Saw in the Kitchen, but realised i needs offerings. saw i was maxed, and decided to do later as i'm also doing the mystery dinner.
I then finish current chapter for mystery Dinner and another pop up appears for the Food shelter. ok, i place the Food shelter building and having done all these other quest, go back to the Potluck feast.....
The option to make the feast has gone, i can't make it any more/Can't complete the goal any more.
Realising i'm not on current version i update my game from 1.4 to 1.4.1, force close app twice and still nothing in the kitchen.
when i go to click the cook button in the quest it send me to the kitchen and no option to cook the feast...sooooooo here I am reporting this problem.

I have a terrible feeling that we're dealing with a s8 mistake and that we shouldn't be able to place the food shelter.

I'm pretty sure that I stopped receiving offerings and the craft option for the new feast from my kitchen disappeared after having placed the shelter.

Hey I say to each their own and I'm thankful that there are so many gem skippers who also frequent the forums. Without them we wouldn't be able to see what's ahead and get ready for future goals or stop playing if there is a glitch.

I have a mercury feast all ready I was going to use for adventures - how do you "collect" from it? It's making me actually prepare something.

Meh, I haven't got past the first step yet, prepare a feast. So I suppose I'm not up to offerings anyway. So it's seven days for all the levels, right? How many levels are there? I'm glad this is during my Thanksgiving break so I have days off to do this. Also it doesn't matter which feasts we make? Do any of the feasts have shorter preparation times, anyone know?

I think they are not registering because the goal is "gather 10 offerings" not "cook 10 feasts". So no offerings means no progress on the goal... 😞

I think they are not registering because the goal is "gather 10 offerings" not "cook 10 feasts". So no offerings means no progress on the goal... ��

AHA, Thanks, that makes sense.

Did your feast at least count in the quest book? Mine still haven't registered��

No nothing has registered in the goal and no offerings. I think I'm just going to stop on this one until they get it fixed. I would spend the 100 gems to skip but about the time I do that they will reset the goal and I'll be out 100 gems. Lol. :/

Hey everyone,

We're currently testing the fix! As soon as we confirm the fix, I'll let you guys know - at that point, Offerings will once again resume dropping from Feasts, and the Potluck Feast will return to the Kitchen, so long as you have any of the event's quests active.

Sorry again for the issue!

Hey everyone! I'm here and looking into the things you all are reporting.

Each of the feasts listed in the first quest (Simple, Hearty, Sweet, Divine, etc.) should all drop some number of Offerings. Please let me know and email support@storm8.com if this is not the case!


sorry to say, but last time you asked to report a bug to support it took almost a week to get a reply which (as usual) did not make any sence. although i mentioned you did ask us to report, they suggested that i should read the forum for answers...

Same opinion here think I will wait till the bugs are fixed as I'm not going to lose out on energy/gems and get a reply days later saying sorry (fair enough) but no offer of compensation for what we lost out on, which I'm sure they could check in our game data/logs.
Thankful Mystery Dinner was the last straw for me in losing out on counts for visiting the conservatories and not registering them.

I would just like to thank all those that give and share so much with tasks and goals. Without your help I definitely wouldn't have achieved the timed events.

Everything should be resolved now! Offerings should now drop from all 6 of the valid feasts from both the Kitchen and the Cooking Camp, even if you've already placed the Food Shelter. The Potluck Feast should also now be in the Kitchen, even if you've already placed the Food Shelter.

We also added a gem reward to the end of the quest chain, for turning in the Potluck Feast.

I had a feast cooking when I started the quest. I promply collected it thinking I would have to start another feast in order for it to be counted, but not so.

i got 3 offerings from simple feast as well, i started the PotLuck feast, waiting the one hour to prepare.
I "suspect" that the more difficult feast gives more offerings. i had at least two sweet feast collected this morning from kitchens, and not sure about winter bakery and i was maxed on offerings, but if they were only 6-7 offerings each(not sure cause i was not watching for the extra drop from feast) even if i have four Sweet feast that should only have given me 28 at best.

Max offerings is 45

See my post right before yours.

Sourp4tch stated a few pages back that Winter Bakery doesn't count.


No, only the Kitchen and Cooking Camp will drop Offerings from the 6 feasts.. Post #111

Well - hmmm. I'm showing three offerings in my inventory and I'm on quest goal 2, "gather 10 offerings" but it shows I have 0/10. So how do you give the three offerings to the quest goal?

By the time I got home from a family Thanksgiving dinner, all the bugs had apparently been worked out. For once I'm glad I wasn't able to start on time! Lol

So I had one spicy feast ready to collect in the kitchen and for that, I received 24 offerings. I then started hearty and simple feasts (plus a sweet feast in the winter bakery, that I now regret) BEFORE coming to the forums. I was very confused before coming here, didn't even notice the offerings, just saw I had 24/40 for the mega feast, and was seriously thinking of skipping when I thought they were actual feasts needed! O.0

My food shelter is locked but there may still be one bug as far as dialog goes....after collecting that first spicy feast, I got the dialog to place the food shelter, but when I clicked on it, it said locked by goal. Then immediately got the dialog to collect 10 offerings (which I mistakenly read as feasts too.)

I'm still not clear on what a divine feast is.....unless it's the huge feast that requires offerings to craft?



Edited to add: My first simple feast gave 6 offerings. It appears the amounts are random, as I've seen several posts reporting 3 offerings per simple feast.

CLOVERKAITO
11-26-15, 04:52 PM
wow, 24 offerings for spicy feast? I hope mine gives that much too since I'm gonna collect it in 2 hours!

My second simple feast also gave 3 offerings. So far for me...

Simple feast: 3, 3
Hearty feast: 7
Spicy: ?
Sweet: ?
Mercury: ?

Will do sweet feast overnight later to see how it goes :)

I got 3 from a simple feast, and 12 from a spicy feast. I also started a sweet feast in the winter bakery before finding out that it won't count. Grr.... I have another 1 & 1/2 hours before I can collect it and start on ingredients to make one in the regular kitchen.

I know, I was very surprised. I read the whole thread to see if maybe they 'gave' a few extras for the inconvenience (people missing out on them due to the bug). But apparently not, even though they should! ;)
I hope I haven't jinxed myself by posting the amounts! :rolleyes:

My food shelter is still locked

If you go back a few posts the release of the food shelter was a mistake. It was supposed to be the prize at the end of this level. Since it opened early they also added gems to the end of this level and let the people who got theirs early keep theirs. Yours will unlock after you complete the 10 food offerings and whatever else is next. Plus you'll get some gems for their mistake.

We don't know what the divine feast is yet. At least I haven't heard anyone saying - I'm hoping it doesn't involve prime cuts.

11-26-15, 07:09 PM
Eeek, I hope someone figures out what the Devine feast is soon. I am so glad we get to keep our other feasts and they are asking for offerings instead but I am to scared to use them for adventures. I have a feeling that you are going to need 1 of each feast for the Devine feast.
What does everyone else think?


Oh for the players who are confused why their first offerings don't count in the second part but are still in your inventory. It's because the first time you collect a feast from your kitchens it only counts for your first goal not for the second.
So for players who haven't started yet. Cook a Mercury feast first, it's only worth one offering so it doesn't matter either way.

Okay. The drops are definitely not random. It seems pretty consistent with what others have been reporting, except for a few that reported a doubled amount of offering drops. I wonder why the discrepancy? My current guess is that people with higher level (ex. me at level 50) has the "normal" drops while people with lower level has the "doubled" drops. This makes sense to me as lower level players probably have less resources to make feasts compared to higher level players like myself who already hoarded a lot of stuff.

May I ask people who got 6 offerings (#186) for simple feast, 14 offerings (#184) for hearty feast, and 24 offerings (#165) for spicy feast to report their level please? I just wanted to know if I should throw this theory out the window lol.

Or could people who have the doubled drops be the ones who started the game later after S8 fixed the bug? I started playing at 1pm today (before the bug was fixed) and got the food shelter early.

I'm not gonna try Mercury feast until I run out of food lol...

I'm really am sorry to disprove your theory, but I am level 50, and was one of the lucky ones this time. My results

Spicy - 24 (unfortunately I did not screen shot it, but it was my very 1st and only feast. So it had to be 24)
Simple x2 - 6 each
Hearty - 14

I spent 40 for the potluck and have 10 left over.

I never understand why or how some accounts get 'lucky breaks' while others don't, but hopefully everyone gets a break occasionally. For example, I had to send the carrier pigeon requests for the mystery dinner, while others didn't and I don't get gems for watching the videos. (And android players definitely miss out on a lot of things)

6 offerings for a simple feast, level 50, after bug fix. They counted towards the Potluck Feast, but not goal 2. Apparently max capacity is 45 offerings, so it looks like I'll have to be careful not to overrun capacity by too much. Also plan to defer the gratification of the 5 gems as it's been reported that the Potluck Feast disappears after giving the feast. Souvenir time. Wonder how many I can craft before I need the table for another goal? At least I can use the Winter Bakery to prepare what I need for a Sweet Feast so it won't sit idle.

Seems like a pretty easy quest for 8 days so hopefully the lower players can get it as well.

Looking forward to it myself and hope it continues from here as it seems like there is more to come. With Thanksgiving Dinner i had a bit of time I chose not to play as much but back to work. Even with the break I have 20 of the 40 so see this being done by tomorrow. Hoping this one will be easier on my sister after the nightmare she has had with Thanksgiving, but it was worth it and I am guilty to say I enjoyed taking over and playing her game to help as I only have one account, although I dont think having multiple accounts would be good for me regularly, I would never get my grad work done! haha

Since there are 7 days to complete it I would send out an adventure each day. Preferably Spicy as it drops 12 offerings unless you're one of the lucky ones that it drops 24. You'll still complete it in 2-4 days as you only need 40 offerings to craft the potluck diner.
2 offerings total isn't comparable to what others have had drop, were you using the winter bakery for one?

So far people who did mercury feasts said they only got one offering. I guess you'll have to send out your knights on adventures tomorrow. I recommend that you do the adventures that use up the sweet feasts (gives 25) and spicy feasts (gives 12) since these two feasts give the most Offerings drops.

Hi, Note that the max for the offerings is set at 45, so if you collect a feast it will only give you the number of offerings to reach 45. It will not go over that limit, so be careful when timing your collections of feasts. Have fun!

Hi SW,

maybe it's an idea to place a short summary on page 1 with all the feasts: ingredients and cooking time?

So we can see into it while are kitchens are busy and we don't have to look it up in the hub when we want to know what to plant etc. (yeah, like me, right now :rolleyes:)

------------------

Just looked up:

FEASTS
Simple Feast: 1hr. 2 Grits. 2 Bread. 8 Fish (Lv.10)
Hearty Feast: 2hr. 1 hearty stew. 1 pasta. 1 breaded fish (Lv.15)
Spicy Feast: 4hr. 25 roast chicken. 5 Ivys hot sauce. 5 noodles (Lv.20)
Sweet Feast: 6hr. 5 royal sundae. 2 chocolate. 10 strawberry (Lv.25)

But it would also be nice if someone would take it further (grits = .... etc.)(Sorry, I would do it myself, but don't have time anymore!)

-------------

Just saw: I forgot mercury feast (or better: it wasn't in the list I found in the hub). Again, I would look it up myself, but really really really have to go now.....)

I believe that the first feast you collect don't count towards the collect 10 offerings step because when you collected the first feast, you were actually doing the Step 1. Comfort Food - Prepare any Feast x1. Then when you collect the second feast it counts towards Step 2. Plenty To Go Around - Gather 10 Offerings.

The collection of Offerings of the first feast didn't count because Step 2 is only triggered AFTER you collected the first feast.

I thought of that, and didn't click Edit in time to stop the second collection, but that's rather dumb seeing how it says collect 10, which should be 10 total seeing how it counted 6 of them from the first step and didn't say collect 10 more or collect 10 with a count of 0, KWIM?

It doesn't really matter because the step after is to Prepare the Potluck Feast x1... which you'd need to collect 40 offerings to craft it anyway. It doesn't change the fact you need to craft more feasts to complete the next step... so why dwell on this?

Personally I think you should be happy that you are also the ones who get 6 offerings for 1 simple feast. Those of us who started playing before the bug was fixed only gets 3 offerings for 1 simple feast... We need to cook twice the feasts to get enough offerings for the potluck feast :rolleyes:

(mor drumroll) coins, AND a grand prize pond that drops...(the crowd goes wild!!) one bucket of water, which is less than I get from my coin ponds!
So if it's really over, this was a great event!!! Crafting a handfull of feasts I'll use for adventures and ending up with 10 gem rewards and a new food dropping building... Do more of these, S8! (Except maybe with not so many bugs in the rollout ��)

Hi SW, maybe it's an idea to place a short summary on page 1 with all the feasts: ingredients and cooking time?

So we can see into it while are kitchens are busy and we don't have to look it up in the hub when we want to know what to plant etc.

your wish is my command! :) post 2 now has the extract from the Adventure Guide so you have everything in 1 place. :):):)

Um... There are seven days to complete this and I finished in less than 12 hours without needing to gem speed anything? (I am level 47 and ever since the beginning have had the strategy to keep my kitchens stocked with the ingredients to make at least 3x of each feast just in case I'm called upon to craft one)...

I think it's 7 days long because the event also takes into account for the lower level players who might not have all the ingredients of a feast ready... and for someone who just made it to level 17, they can only do simple feast and hearty feast. Not spicy and sweet feast available to them yet.

Please correct me if my math below is wrong. But for a lower level player to craft a feast from scratch, it takes a lot of time so 7 days is actually more reasonable. And the time below doesn't even account for time / energies needed to harvest the ingredients.

Simple feast, with one kitchen, would take 6 hours to craft
Grit: 30 minutes x 2 = 1 hour
Bread: 2 hours x 2 = 4 hours
Simple feast = 1 hour

Hearty feast, with one kitchen, would take 11.5 hours to craft
Hearty stew = 2 hours
Pasta = 1 hour
Noodles = 30 minutes
Flour: 30 minutes x 2 = 1 hour
Breaded fish = 1 hour
Bread: 2 hours x 2 = 4 hours
Hearty feast = 2 hours


(I'm done crafting the Potluck feast too in just 8 hours, with "normal" offering drops. I'm just collecting for souvenir now.)

Heh, I beat you. I had a ton of feasts lined up for the thanksgiving event, realized that almost none of them were needed, so I queued two sweet feasts on the way out the door to my RL thanksgiving dinner. When I got back home, I collected them, instantly maxed out on offerings, and finished the potluck an hour after the event started for me. I didn't even get to see the dialogue for the second step in the questline LOL.

Wasn't the divine feast something from the very earliest days of CS back when you could make sweet cream? I started playing just after that was discontinued so my memories of it are all second hand. If that's the case, it is funny that the developers don't seem to realize it isn't in the game any more! i really do think things would go smoother if at least some of the developers played the game. Right now it sure seems like they don't. Still I am enjoying the quest. This is the first one that is harder for a hardcore hoarder. I was maxed on all feasts so i am going to need a few days to send out enough adventures to allow me to make a souvenir potluck.

Pretty sure that's part of the reason why this quest is 7 days long...... :rolleyes:

Wait:eek: And then send out adventure to the desert every day, start making sweet feast when you can. Lots of days left, sweet feast gave me 20-25 offerings:)

Edit: I would speed up the present adventures a bit, but of course not all players want to do that.

Once you can craft them, I'd focus on sweet feasts. You'll be done in no time that way.

In answer to my own question, max limit of potluck feast is 2 .. And crafting is still available if you don't serve the feast

Cool! :) my potluck is ready to collect but I'm waiting until morning when a sweet and spicy will be ready since I wasn't sure.

Yup I collected a potluck already since I wanted to keep cooking ingredients for feasts. As long as you don't "serve" the crafting option is still there.

I couldn't wait and decided to risk it, because I only have 2 kitchen and a camp, and I couldn't make everything with a potluck feast occupying one kitchen :)

I got six offerings for the simple feast but just got two for the mercury feast. Is this right?

I not convinced the Sweet fEast is the way to go as it takes 6 hours for the feast itself and then there are all the ingredients for it. I was done in no time with spicy and hearty feasts because I had all the ingredients and they are a short craft time.

It depends what your stock of ingredients is like I think.

Sounds about right for the time being, since the "before bug fixed" group only got one for the Mercury feast.

For people who are already maxed out on feasts and needed to go on adventures to use up their feasts, Sweet Feast is clearly the way to go since these people likely already overstocked on ingredients. They can only use up 1.5 feasts a day with adventures on both castle and barracks.

Sweat Feast gives 25 Offerings over 6 hours. That's 4.17 Offerings per hour.
Spicy Feast gives 12 over 4 hours. That's 3 per hour.
Hearty Feast gives 7 over 2 hours. That's 3.5 per hour.
Simple Feast gives 3 over 1 hour. That's 3 per hour.
Mercury Feast gives 1 over 3 hours. That's one-third per hour... This one is a waste of time.

Echowuuu is maxed out on all feasts and can only free a spot up by going on an adventure. It would take all week to clear out enough space for feasts using up only simple and hearty adventures. That's why I say in that case sweet is the best option.

All my offerings keep disappearing. I had 4, they disappeared. I cooked up another simple feast, it told me I got 4 more, but my count is still 0. I don't think the bug is fixed :(

Just came here again to say thank you S8 for this update and the "Mystery Dinner Table"! As others already pointed out these last two events and also the "Turkey Animals" were a lot of fun, doable and with a nice reward in the end! Feels much more like the "Castle Story" I started playing, again!

After the "Orphanage" and "Essence Pool" I wasn't so sure about the game anymore. But now my faith is restored! Also 40% off on the current sale is pretty nice! So thank you!!!

I put the orphanage back out in case it counted for something with this quest but it hardly seems worth it - you don't get much off of it. I was worried with the feast table that all you would get is a handful of coins.
