That should just be a sampling because the update itself says ALL gem items. They're the ones that capitalized ALL. LOL

I might finally be able to get the cabbage house! I'm still not sure I want it yet, because after the gem purge of black friday they might introduce some lovely christmas gem items I want so at this point I'm just waiting.

I would consider buying something like another Wizard School, but I am maxed at 2 and I doubt the limit will be raised.

Anything shown that I would buy are items that I am maxed out on so I guess I will be passing on the sale. It will likely be good for newer players, and less so for someone like me who has a full kingdom and no room for more.

I would have loved to have an expansion release as well as a sale but maybe they will have one soon.

At least it appears that the sale includes useful items and is not simply static decorations as most new releases have been.

Glad to see this even if I don't buy anything.

Probably the living wood tree because I'm making fairy sap the rest seem useless but I would say every situation is different! I don't understand the appeal of the wizard schools when there are so many other ways to get energy but to each his own!

Well, two upgraded Wizard schools gives 20 energy every 4 hours and 20 min...I have Alicorns too, but I still love my Wizard schools very much. I strongly recommend them to players at all levels. Buy them before all the other gem stuff:)

CLOVERKAITO
11-26-15, 01:50 AM
I agree that the wizard school is most useful out of everything listed. I'd buy 5 more if we're allowed LOL


There are a few gem items I would like to get, such as the Alicorn (just for the heck of it since I don't have one) and Living Wood tree (I'm done the quest that needs faerie sap but lately a lot of time-limited quests ask for living wood so the tree should come in handy). And maybe that cabbage house if it's cheap enough. I have everything else on the picture on the top post so hopefully other gem items are on sale too.

The wizard schools are the best!
I'm gonna get me the barracks, hopefully. Maybe an alicorn too, we'll see how good the deals are.

Anyone know from last year?

It's possible to craft alicorns through the Love Shack.

People who started playing after March 2013 (including myself) do not have the Love Shack hence it makes the Alicorn uncraftable.

I agree 100%! Wizard schools before anything else. It'll take a while to fully upgrade them but they come in very handy and I have a lot of alicorns too. I love having the barracks, too. Haven't been too thrilled with my 2 fish markets. Love having multiple living wood trees. Faerie skunkhouses come in handy if one is constantly trying to get rat tails, fur, creep tooth and bones, if I remember correctly. Multiple mermaid ponds come in handy, also. I basically say try to eventually have everything but prioritize based on needs and accumulate gem items over time. The mor one can get on sale, the better. ;)

what exactly does the barracks give you?

PinkEquinox
11-26-15, 07:01 AM
The barracks allows you to adventure more often. The adventures take twice as long though at 2 days each.

Oh, last year the items on sale were only 25% off:rolleyes:

PinkEquinox
11-26-15, 07:07 AM
:( Gems are normally 30% off with the sale, so if it's only 25% off and you have to buy full price gems... It may not be worth it. I refused to buy gems after the Halloween event :( and probably won't get a sale before Friday.

I would like to see on the market kingdom inn ( for the earth wisps) and maybe bountiful table.

Ohh, old goal buildings would be fantastic :)) I wouldn't mind a second Ivy's bakery either lol, too bad you can only have one :(

55lee55
11-26-15, 03:13 PM
Are items that are for sale still restricted?

I would buy another Wizard School but I have 2 already. S8 would make more from the sale if they lift the limits. Otherwise, there is nothing I will bother spending my money on for this sale.

I have gems for sale in my kingdom and I would buy some if I knew that I could buy something worthwhile. Not going to spend money though without knowing for sure because I learned from experience that the banked gems are usually scooped up by gem traps.

Ah well, maybe next year.

I second this! Its been so long I forgot how long I have been playing but I think it was the May after the LoveShack so I just missed it :(

I have basically everything I need and the only thing I really want purely because I think they are so pretty is an alicorn. I only have the two special ones an not a regular so may get one tomorrow. Energy wise it is not worth the gems to me but I feel like my Queendom is incomplete without a regular alicorn lol. Have the gems saved up for the sale so we will see what happens.

Just making sure you know that the royal manor only gives Royal points and coins/XP and doesn't drop anything. It is nice looking though.

11-26-15, 09:21 PM
It's already Friday here and alicorn is at 360 gems! I'm getting another one! :D

Also living wood tree and magic fruit trees are only 72 gems!

Sadly the skunkhouse and the pergola are not on sale .. But the wizard school is at 120 gems. Worth it for players who don't have 2 already.

Dragon 210, manticore 180, mithril dragon 240, mythic mushroom 27, etc.. Enjoy the Black Friday sale everyone! :o

I thought ALL gem items were going to be on sale so just curious why the pergola is not as that is one I was going to recommend to my sister. Is this an error or is in fact some items not on sale.

I also didnt have skunkhouse and was going to get it for me, so its a bummer as I was expecting all to be on sale.

Can someone from S8 confirm if this is a coding problem and these items will be adjusted? Also is there a way to get an exact time this event will expire?

Thanks so much, looking forward to finally getting my Alicorn, cant wait going for it right now haha

How long is this sale exactly?? Not able to decide which items have most priority

Got my first Ali , one LW tree, barracks...I'll have enough gems to get the cabbage hut, but not able to decide if I want it ...also, if I spend all my saved gems, I won't be be able to get a faerie sheep if it finally turns up in the tent :(. And I think an extra Lwood tree would be more useful for me too

For 270 gems the cabbage hut isn't a terrible buy if you're out of everything else to get including plants and animals.

True that. Grab it if uve considered it. I put 450 of my saved gems on the table for it, and still think it was worth it. Then again it says "locked by a goal", thus u might not have to exchange gems for it. However, it's not known when nor what goal. So I circle back to: grab it if u have been eye balling it.

With all the faerie sap I've been making lately, I decided I'd better buy a second living wood tree while the price is 72, because I wouldn't be doing it for the standard 120.

Thanks, S8, for the sale.

janddolphins
11-26-15, 11:05 PM
Please Please consider putting all of the gem items up for sale as was promised in the beginning. There are some items I would like to get that are not for sale that are gem items for me and my sister (listed in my previous post)

I am hoping in the spirit of Thanksgiving S8 will keep to the original statement of all gem items.

Also still a clear date of when the event is ending would be helpful to know if we do have the whole weekend or have only tomorrow to choose,

Not meant to be negative in this post love the event, would just like to see the improvements :)

CLOVERKAITO
11-26-15, 11:22 PM
"Bought" the living wood tree as that'd come in handy for sure. Debating if I should get a second one... but I already finished the faerie sap goal.

Also debating if I should get an Alicorn for 360 gems (it doesn't seem to worth it in terms of energy return)... and the magic fruit tree just for decorations (I always have 70+ magic fruits). And Cabbage hut for 270 gems... is it worth it??

Sandybellee
11-26-15, 11:31 PM
Now it really sucks I lost 43 gems to a gem trap last night! :( So hard to decide what to get! Ivy's Bakery and Living Wood tree or apple tree... Or maybe Mithril dragon... Hmm...

Need Fish badly so I bought the fish market (also because its on sale).

The weird thing is, you need to build it up and part of the requirement is 50 fishes.

If you are going to spend gems to get this because you need fish badly, then you might want to think again.

I have bought Ivy's Bakery and the Fish Market. Neither is particularly useful, but they are colourful and replace a couple of redundant cottages.
Also invested in a Maple tree, and now my wallet's practically empty.

It seems that the main source of gems, playing new games, is drying up for Android, so these may be my last purchases for quite some time.

This is super, I'd been wanting the barracks for a while so have bought that.

Really fancy an alicorn, I don't need the energy, but I would really like one.

Is the fortune teller tent worth it if you don't really need any fortunes, my goals are completely up to date except for yesterday's update, so I'm not sure how helpful it would be?

Ok, I got Ivy's Bakery! Getting an apple tree would mean I could probably get the 8 apple pies done for the table goal but a living wood tree would be very useful later... Need to decide soon if I choose the apples. Tough choices, but I actually prefer it this way rather than just buying everything I want.

Edit: bought the apple tree, because it's cheaper than skipping the apple pies. Hopefully I manage to collect enough apples in time to make it worth it! :)

I wish they'd come out with new fortunes with one of the updates, I thought they were supposed to be added occasionally.

Out of everything available to me the only things I'm interested in are. I'm currently at level 26, will start the Sabina questline soon and am at the start of the troll questline. I know there are faeries in the game but haven't seen those yet.

Barracks 216
Fish Market 72
Wizard School 120
Ivy's Bakery 120
Living Tree 72
mermaid pond 96
magic fruit tree 72
lemon tree 36
orange tree 18
apple tree 54
maple tree 24

In total I have 640 gems to spend, but am not sure what is most useful now/could be necessary in the future. I'm personally thinking either one or two Wizard Schools, Mermaid Pond, Magic or Living Fruit Tree but am doubting about what to do with the rest. Ivy's Bakery, Barracks, Fish Market. Does anyone have suggestions for what could be the best combination to spend everything? Intention is to spend everything while the sale is here :P

I'm loving this sale! Thanks S8 :) I've been hoarding gems (I built up to about 850 without ever spending real money) so I splurged on a few things I don't really need but wanted for my kingdom: barracks, fish market, mermaid pond, mushroom trove, and Greselda's fountain. And I still have 400 gems left for the Christmas items I'm hoping we'll get.

This sale totally made what has been a very unpleasant week for me a little bit better! Woo!

I'm about to start the faerie quest line and I don't want to be caught with my pants down. Any thoughts on what else I should consider buying that's related to the faeries?

Edit: I already have the mermaid pond, magic fruit tree, living tree, all the fruit trees, 1 wizard school, 2 maple trees, 1 red trillium plant and two glimmerdust troves.

woohoo!! the cabbage hut is on sale and way cheaper than 450!! I have 100 gems left over for christmas! Don't need anything else though.
BTW the cabbage hut is cool it gives a cabbage for the baron tent every 22 hours. So in less than a month you can get a free thing from the tent. I've spent a lot of gems on around 8-10 things from the tent but now i have a way to make them!

Order of usefulness of gem items best to worst: W. School, Barracks, Living wood tree, cabbage hut, mermaid pond, mythic mushrooms, fruit trees, hedge, fairy skunkhouse, ivy's bakery, harvest pergola, fish market, fortune tent, Kingdom Inn, Royal manor, ;the worst gem items are things you can CRAFT, duh, and the gem animals, which you can get for free with diligent castle missions. I bought a black sheep recently and murphy's law, a two weeks later, I got a free one from the dark caves. except for the gem horses which are mainly just for looks... and the dragons. Got a mythril dragon a long time ago and never need mythril anymore.

I was so looking forward to a 40% off gem sale (which has happened every Black Friday since this game started) and am quite disappointed. I usually make a pretty big gem purchase but not this year without the sale. I don't need much of what is offered - level 50 and have most of it already. Hopefully S8 will offer a gem sale before Christmas. Just hoping.

@ Zyfazix

Since you are considering the Wizard School, I'd recommend buying 2 if you have the space. Long term (and short) the energy from them is quite useful. If you are missing any of the fruit trees, I'd recommend getting the one(s) you need for an orchard of one each. Collect from them regularly and you don't really need more. If you don't have them, I would recommend a Maple Tree and a Living Wood Tree. Both are good at maintaining stock (again by collecting regularly). There will be times when every extra sap and LW is valuable. Prepare for the future. Many of the long term players are right that you will, eventually, get the fruit trees and maple trees from adventures. They are random drops and could happen tomorrow or 6 months from now. Doesn't help the game much in the short term.

If you only want one or two royal pigs and/or cows, you could wait around for them to drop from an adventure (mainly dark caves or desert). That wait could go on for months though, even with adventures every day from castle and barracks:eek: Almost mission impossible to get a herd of royal animals from adventures...:rolleyes:

Someone says maybe all the weekend, but I wont take the risk, its black friday so I think is only 24 hours. But who knows ...
About fruits trees, if you already have one of each (apple, lemon, orange) dont buy more. One it will be enough for your quest, at least it was for me. Then, you will have a lot from your adventures, you will finish storage them all. But if you dont have, buy one of each for sure.
The magical fruit tree makes no utility for me, I max on fruits and I dont even remember if i needed for quests in the past (if i did, well, i didnt need too many I guess)
The living tree is very good indeed, and also the mermaid pond, I was very happy with it. You will need later a lot of mermaid scale.

A few levels ago I did a lot of those fruit trades at the Royal Exchange, then when I reached a certain level that changed to magic fruit exchange and ever since then I've been low on Magic fruit, they don't serve any other purpose for me at the moment other than those trades. I'll hold on from buying that one until I hear if it has more use than that
I just finished relocating everything and while I don't necessarily like this new design, it does allow for placement of more buildings and even more if I remove some of these darn normal trees I bought.

I don't really need the extra energy (I don't even collect from my two energy horses) and I usually can keep my magic fruit count above 70 with just the Magic Garden... Or should I just save the rest of my gems for X'mas in case something more awesome comes out?

Love your signature! (Just had to say), and thank you for pointing out and reminding that almost every other game company has a confirmation button and all the others I play or have played did. I find it ironic they are advertising for the competition that is a fairer game but it is their strategy. Still jealous I dont get the videos and more jealous some get gems for it which is so valuable if you think a few gems a day over a year. That makes an unfair game economy in my opinion.

On the topic of Black Friday though:

Overall I was happy to get my first regular Alicorn this event, simply because it is the only animal I dont have and think they are pretty, my Queendom feels almost complete (Love Shack would help complete it *cough cough*) and still have almost 300 gems saved in case anything comes along during the quests during December and February :) Looking forward to seeing what is to come.

My sister made off really well with Black Friday too. She got one Wizard School, one M Dragon, 2 LW trees (was supposed to be one but my clumsy fingers opps!...told her they are still a good investment though and she was okay), and another sheep has 3 plus the turkey now and wool kills her on many challenges so she can start stockpiling wool and rope. She has 30 gems left and is working on building up again.

Gotta love Black Friday!

So you know the special alicorns have different drop rates than the regular. In my opinion it is better though. The regular is once a week 40 energy, These are I forget either 16 or 22 hours and you can get typically 4 energy (so they average out) but at times get lucky and get 7-20 and the very rare 100 energy from both quest alicorns so I do find them to be better in terms of use, but I couldnt resist getting one regular alicorn today just to finally have it :)

Alicorns would be wonderful to have since we can no longer craft them.

Just crafted another alicorn after getting the sacred wing from an adventure.

If I craft another alicorn it will only cost me 200 gems because I have half of the items required anyway.

I'm hoping to get more wings from adventures though and save my gems.

Vulpesvulpes1 I would make sure you have a mushroom trove, just bought my second, and consider the magic fruit tree. They both make challenges easier to stock up for and are helpful in the exchange. The mushrooms also save tons of space as you don't need to pull out as many mushrooms during challenges.

Well for people looking for a little purchase you can get a glimmer trove for only 24 gems. I bought one with leftover gems so I have two. Sometimes you need so much glimmer dust. I just wish there was an earth wisp drop - I know you get them in rare drops but I'm always needing them for expansions.

ETA: All the gem animals I have I got through the quest or through the roost. So I don't know if this is an issue if you buy the animals. But I'm noticing that when I need a rare ingredient for something my animal magically stops dropping it. It's happening again - I have two dragons and two manticores. I am trying to craft mytic essence. Well, my dragon has stopped dropping scales and my manticore has stopped dropping - you guessed it - whiskers. They just give coins and venom. So I'm not sure how much good the gem animals are.

I'd still like to press my plug for a peacock that drops one gem a day if the PTB are reading this ...

For 270 gems the cabbage hut isn't a terrible buy if you're out of everything else to get including plants and animals.


True that. Grab it if uve considered it. I put 450 of my saved gems on the table for it, and still think it was worth it. Then again it says "locked by a goal", thus u might not have to exchange gems for it. However, it's not known when nor what goal. So I circle back to: grab it if u have been eye balling it.

Got the cabbage hut too, yay :o after lots of thinking....I guess I would love getting my fav tent prize every month, for free

Thanks twinkle toes and indryia. Do you find it helpful in the game? I have 5 troves all adventure drops. Not up to the fairy goals so maxed on murmur. It does have a pretty factor tho.

Also thinking about fortune tent. I'm slow take my time player so it's seems the greatest benefits are 3 goals where you can gain a lot of fruit, some glue (not sure) and getting thru sister sister I've read. So for slows players what's your opinion.

You will have the flower bed from a guest line, the fairy one I guess, so I wont buy it.
You will have flower bed, faerie tea party, faerie harp and a rose arch.

I bought the fortune tent awhile ago, I like it. I am a slow player also, I have a lot of patience, and I dont speed things or skip.
But I liked it, and it's nice to win extra things sometimes.
I saw here on the forum I will need a lvl 5 deep mine for glimmergate, so I started to do that in time, so the fortune tent didnt really help me with glues for magic cement, but I think it will be very helpfull.
Also for Sister sister il will be easier. I lost that fortune by mistake, I forgot about it when I did an expension and I clean out a dead log and right now I move trough this quest very sloooowlyy !!!

Thomas's house drops more books than the library, and only 2 hour collection time. I've actually gotten 2 books at once from him. My library is level 5 and almost never drops spell books but Thomas gives them almost every time.

Anyway, it's not a waste of time if you play those games. You will win some gems to use later.

Hey guys. So I have 956 gems to spend.
I already have most of the necessary stuff like alicorns, wizard schools, animals, fruit trees.
I'm stuck between getting the barracks, Ivy's bakery and the fortune teller. I think I'm also going to get the mermaids pond because I'm really running low on mermaid scales.
Will there be any re releases of Christmas items or new Christmas items that I should save my gems for?

The mermaids pond helped me a lot when I did glimmergate and griselda guests, as you need a lot of buildings on lvl 5 and you need a lot of living wood and mermaid scales for echanted essence for echanted blocks and beams.
I bought the barrack yesterday and I already have Ivy's bakery and it helps. I got a lot of syrup, hot sauce, silver plate, cake, apple and orange cakes, lemonade, etc which help you a lot to do feasts. I am also max on skunkupies.

How much is the bakery and the tent?

I have the amber augmentations goal and need to make potions for the adventure so my mermaid scales are basically all gone.

The bakery is 120 gems and the tent is 150 gems.

Well, you have enough gems to buy all 4 items and you will still have gems for later (Christmas items maybe).
But if you want to spend less, I think (it is just my personal opinion !!) you should drop the barraks ...
I bought it just to have all buildings in my inventory but i don't really understand his logic: for a building at 360 gems full price I think the adventures might take 12 hours not 48 hours !!!

And for the Fortune tent, well, I personally love it. It can be usefull, depends on your level.
I was full on pies and lemonades, and I still use them to do the trades. Not really for 1 gem, but for tickets.

After getting a second living wood tree and seeing it alleviate LW as a stressful resource, I went and bought a second magic fruit tree. Sure enough. Not stressful anymore. Now it's just gems that are a stressful resource. lol But those will rebuild over time too.

Glad for the extra items helping my kingdom.

I have 4 living wood trees and given the amount of living wood you need for faerie sap and the previous goals with Agnes, it is an excellent purchase. Mind you, I didn't buy them now, but at full price, but that's ok! It's excellent to have a guaranteed drop for a resource.

But I could use another kitchen to churn out some items. Im trying to stock up on feasts, havent been going on adventures for about 2 months now. I need to restock all I can think of because I know whatever xmas goals we have, will be doozys.

The barracks is a great investment. On my other kingdoms where I had hundreds of gems saved, I got the mermaid pond, the fruit trees and alicorns when they were on sale before. 3 on each. And I dont even play these things!

But if you play hard, then the ability to go on two adventures at the same time is awesome.

I decided to get the LW tree too after all since I should be able to gather enough apples (with the reward of 15) for all 8 pies.
I'm always short on LW and am just starting the Faerie and Greselda stories.

So all in all I got Ivy's Bakery, an apple tree and a Living Wood tree. Very happy with these!

Thank you for these sales, TL! :)

First of all, thank you S8 for this wonderful sale:)

I bought mermaid pond right away as I am always running low on mermaid scales, plus it is beautifully designed, so no hesitation there.

Then after much debating, I also got the living wood tree and cabbage hut. I haven't get to the goals that seem to require lots of LW, but I figured that it wouldn't hurt to get it now.

The only thing I'm skeptical about is the cabbage hut. Do you guys think it is worth it? I already got it so I can't change my mind now, lol, but I'd still like to hear what you guys think. I think in the long run it will be worth it.

For those still trying to decide what to buy, aside from wizard school, Ivy's bakery is a good investment. I got lots of cakes and pies from it, so it saved me lots of energy harvesting & crafting.

I hope everyone enjoyed this sale & got something you wanted:) I know I did

I wanted to say thanks for this great sale too. I bought another alicorn, another glimmerdust trove, 2 living wood trees, and 2 magic fruit trees. I would have bought more if there had been the usual 40% gem sale.

I was one of those that bought Ivy's bakery when it first came out at full price and still think it's worth every gem. I have received at least 40 silver platters which would take 800 silver, 200 Jewels, and 160 hours to craft plus allows me to go on 40 more Desert sands adventures so 40 more chances to get magic cement, enchanted and ornate beams and blocks, architects paste, etc. I never seemed to have enough silver to make platters and can now use it to make other things.
Plus it drops lots of cakes, pies, skunkupies, super yummy pies, ice cream, etc.

Two wizard schools are one of the first things I bought with gems for this game. Spell books aren't hard to come by... I have three libraries and Thomas's house drops them all the time. My spell books are always maxed out now and my wizard schools are fully upgraded a long time ago.

I would get barracks if you can manage to make enough resources to go on adventures regularly. Adventures do drop gems and you can use those gems to get other things later. Ivy's bakery would be second on that list (free pies are good) and I bought the mermaids pond when it first came out too since I needed a lot of mermaid scales back then. I personally felt the fortune teller was not a super useful item.

For me, I bought one living wood tree, the cabbage hut, and one alicorn. And then I lost 4 gems to a gem trap lol.

I bought Ivy's Bakery and so far have been very happy with what it dropped. I recommend the barracks also, it has really helped me with some of the goals, usually drops gems and energy. I'm not that thrilled with the tent and have it in storage since I completed all of its goals.

After much consideration, I finally bought Ivy's Bakery, LW tree, magic fruit tree. Although I'm usually maxed out on LW and MF. Still thinking whether to get flower hedge or not, just because it looks good.
Fruit trees, some animals, some decorations, glimmer troves are rare drops from adventures, so won't be buying them for gems. Just got my first black sheep a few days ago from adventure drop.

I've got two libraries and Thomas' house and nothing seems to drop the spell books at all. I'm stuck at level 2 with just 12 and all I get from any of those buildings is coins.

ETA: It happened again. I tapped all three buildings and got nothing at all but coins. I'm starting to regret getting the wizard's school - what good is it if I can't upgrade it?

That's how I just got mine and I really like it. I started to throw it into storage - thought it was just another decoration until

I bought two wizards schools, I also have two libraries and Thomas' house and they never drop spell books for me either. I get them from adventures sometimes but that's it. I am trying to enjoy at least the few energy we get now before upgrading, but I hear you. It's discouraging.

It just hit me that I'm spending the few energy I get from the schools to collect from the libraries and Thomas to only get coins. It's funny...

At this point I've given up on finishing quests and am just expanding since all the drops I seem to be getting are coins so I'm stuck. The good news is the message from Storm 8 said that we need to collect trade tickets by Thursday for the next event. I'm good at producing those. About the only thing my city is producing besides a handful of coins are eggs and milk.

horns come from Desert sands quest I think. Not very often, but that is where I have gotten them.

Both, wings and horns, are capable of dropping from ancient vaults, roaming bandits, dark caves and desert sands, as well as the romantic adventure (I forgot it's name). Obviously, this is only for those with the Love Shack. Sorry :(

it's called Dispel the Love Magic. ;) SW
