Happy Glimmer Year
Fireworks - 26 day timed / optional event
(Level 17-required level )



HELP! I get the message that says I'm at my building limit.....
* LIBRARY AND JEWELLER ARE ROYAL BUILDINGS
* You can have 43 Royal buildings. The number of buildings you can have is limited to your total royal building count.

* TAVERN AND MARKETPLACE ARE TOWN BUILDINGS
* You can have 40 Town buildings. The number of these buildings you can have is limited to your total town building count. (Updated June 2015)

* lower levelled players can't have as many of each type as stated above.
* to get more, you may need to sell a building in the same category. Eg sell a conservatory to build another library; or sell a cottage or 3 to build a marketplace.
* it may not be an equal sell 1 buy 1. You may need to sell more than 1.

My quest for the fireworks box was completely different. I didn't screenshot but I think it was 10 fur, 10 bones and 10 rat tails. Maybe it depends on your level.

Maybe it does depend on your level. I also had a daily quest for a fireworks box I think it was chop 10 logs, plant 10 flowers of any kind and then tend to 10 flowers.

thats the one i got too. they are random daily goals like we had in another event i think and we will eventually get the one above too. i for one will be skipping the 10 hearty stew one when i get it, too many stews for just one firework case as reward to me.

That's what my lower account required. However, you can buy the tall grass for 100 coins each as they apparently qualify as flowers. Then chop them to clear 10 debris. Then tend 10 flowers to get the fireworks box.

Can't find any place to craft the glimmer marble and the glimmer stones. Looks like at this point the only way to get them is from the fountain (3 pieces at level 1) and the troll fireworks case (1 piece). I would assume the faerie fireworks case would give more than 1 piece at the cost of it.

Main account had the trade for bones, fur and rat tails. Easy enough to give.

I was wondering if the finished Glimmer Fountain is anything more than a coin building. I'm not feeling the desire to grind away at another timed event. They are starting to make the game less enjoyable and more like a chore.

A community event??? Not really the best time of the year for that...at least not for me. Too much going on in RL to be going in the game every few hours.
I may be able to help out next week but this weekend is pretty much tied up with family.

Good luck everyone!

The goal for the fireworks box isn't in my book. I've force closed several times.

Have you upgraded the Glimmer Fountain to Level 2?

And if I recall correctly, it just said fireworks trade.

Jewelers and libraries drop one apiece.


I think library drops two

And one of mine dropped 3. (Library) looks like it's a random amount.

These were what mine dropped and I have at least 5 of each:

Market place dropped 5
Library dropped 3
Jeweller dropped 1, random chance one of mine dropped 4
Tavern dropped 2, one of my 4 taverns dropped 3

Market place is a 22 hour refresh
Library and tavern are 8 hours
Jeweller is 4 hours

So if the jeweller give random bigger drops than one then either that or the library could be the best use of bulding. Market has too long of a refresh (unless you can get random super drops) and the tavern gave slightly less than the library but takes the same time, for me.

Yes the max number of buildings is odd. I can have only 1 tavern, 4 jewelers , 6 marketplaces, and 9 libraries. I thought newbees might want to know you can have more than 2 of some buildings. I was slow to catch on to that myself.

1whitty
12-17-15, 03:47 PM
Am I right? The best building to add is the jeweler? I have 6 marketplaces, 2 libraries, 2 taverns & 2 jewelers. The jeweler takes less labor intensive supplies to build, drops the same per hour as the tavern or library.

SpiritWind00
12-17-15, 04:05 PM
The good thing about the buildings is that some are royal and others are town buildings so you can maximise on the fact that they are different types. Both have limits and are noted in the Building Guide.

After 4 hours in this event, I have 2 fireworks (she says falling on the ground not knowing whether to laugh or cry!) ;););););) had to sacrifice my Christmas corner for multi buildings too. Bit sad about that but oh well. I'll have to remember to have a Christmas in July!

Rethinking, the best building to add might be the library as it seems it will be more useful after this event. I have room for 2 taverns or 1 library. Decisions, decisions! �� (That's my head hurting from this)

Mine was the same daily trade as yours. And I agree; I still have a heap of cottages out trying to get the gingerbread house. Now I also have libraries, taverns and jewellers. What a mess!
Oh, and to those considering expansions - DONT at this stage. I know S8 are working on it, but at the moment I am down 3 permits, 18 lanterns, and over 500,000 coins. Be patient, and expand when it's fixed. Those expansion permits are worth their weight in gold!

You may have reached the maximum number of town and Royal buildings; I can't remember what these are, but check in the building guide. If so, you need to sell some buildings off to build more.

One more goal I probably won't complete because I "only" have a library, marketplace and Jeweler each.

The goals that had Farm Houses drop stuff were much easier and way less annoying.

I know how you feel. When I started playing I didn't even contemplate joining in events as I knew I didn't have either the time or the resources to be successful. But, slowly you get to a point when you do start to stockpile items and build up your inventory. It's different for players coming through as you will get new goals immediately upon finishing a previous one. When I was coming through there was months and months with no updates and it gave us time to stockpile. It can get easier the higher levelled you are.

As with any event, evaluate where you are and if it's realistic for you to participate. Consider if and how much you are willing to use gems. Gems are a commodity to make gaming easier. Finding a balance for everyone is really hard in this type of event. If you aim for 600 fireworks you will get the community prizes and a couple individual ones which is awesome. If this event doesn't fit in your Christmas schedule, that's ok too!

I hope you can participate a bit though... ;) good luck in your decision.

Collecting upgrade items for the fountain is going very slowly so far... Hopefully there's enough time for us all to finish it in time.

We need 135 glimmerstone and glimmermarble to fully upgrade the fountain.

Collect at 8, 11, 14, 17, 20 and 23 hour gives you 6 collections a day.

1 drop per collection (so far), means you have to collect 22,5 days, 6 times a day in order to get enough stones and marbles... That sounds an awful lot like work. In fact, no employer could make me work 15 hours a day, 7 days a week... It's even prohibited...

Try force closing and go back in.

I had that problem too. So - what we've come up with for the upgrade on this fountain is the only way to get 2 of the ingredients (glimmer stone and glimmer marble) is to click on the fountain's base, which looks like it has a two hour timer, and hope you randomly get not one but two ingredients? Great. I'll get 500 of one and 0 of the other. It will be like the wedding carriage that irritates me so much I'm seriously considering putting it in storage and that was after I did the whole stupid people trick timed challenge of clicking on it 8 times in 24 hours. If they're trying to annoy us they're succeeding. This better be a decent prize and not just a statue.

With past events, as you upgrade the event building (in this case the glimmer fountain), the drop rate on the event items (g-stone and g-marble here) would go up.

That's what made me really angry with the wedding carriage goal. One of the timed goals to "get you ahead" had you clicking every 4 hours for 24 hours. I was snowed in anyway so I did it and it didn't get me ahead in any way. I have enough of the other items to make three wedding carriages now but not enough lace, which I don't get. It will be the same with this fountain, I predict. Since there are two items to get and you can only get them from clicking on the fountain you'll get up to one of the higher levels then stop getting one of the items. Say twice the number of stones you need but not enough marble. They're hoping you'll gem for it.

From what I have seen in my kingdom so far, taverns and libraries drop 2 OR 3 fireworks, jewelers drop 1 OR 4 fireworks and marketplaces drop 5 OR 10 fireworks. I haven't seen a number in between for the jewelers or the marketplaces. I can comfirm the occasional 10 on marketplaces. I haven't seen a tavern or library drop just 1 yet.I only got a 10 from marketplace, others no surprise yet :)

It looks like the leftovers from a springtime challenge but that makes no sense. If they didn't want to design something new for this challenge why not just bring back a Christmas challenge? I've been wanting the reindeer stable and others have been wanting Christmas trees. This challenge makes no sense - it doesn't even have anything to do with new year's. So what are the community prizes? Do we know at all?

I never do the daily trade unless it's a rare item I really need. Sometimes if a timed quest is coming up you can tell what you will need because what you will need will be part of the daily trade - that's the only reason I even click on them anymore to see what is being traded.

Jeez, it only finished three weeks ago, plus there's the whole Christmas/holiday season to contend with. The programmers aren't just sitting at their desks, catering to the whims of people on a forum, going, "Well, that one poster wants us to do that thing NOW, so let's hop to it!"

I assumed it would happen right after the original quest. They certainly don't hesitate to ladle quests on top of each other in other respects. I have four quests open now. It only matters if it is a timed quest. As for reading the forums there are several posts from people who say they are the games designers.

Good luck everyone!

Hoping the prizes are more than deco this time around. :D

Heads up: After I upgraded to level 2, I got an auto-starting 3-day goal to update to level 3. It's optional, in that the event continues even if you don't do it, but it does reward a crate. So if you want more fireworks crates, you may want to be past 15 on the glimmer pieces before upgrading.

I'm very disappointed that the fireworks cases don't always drop a glimmer stone or marble. I've gotten wheat few times from the basic case, and once I got wood . Really S8?! Wheat? Wood? Instead of a glimmer marble? That's like getting coal in your stocking lol.

The faerie case has given me a pile of seeds once and a magic fruit once, along with the fireworks.

I just upgraded to level 2. What flowers? I saw the notice as well but I thought they were talking about the 20 crops
you grow - I read this site for the next level so I already had the stews to give and wheat planted. I thought harvesting but were we given flowers for completing level one? Flowers you can collect say marble and stone from? I don't see it in my inventory. Just the fireworks boxes.

Spiritwind, there seems to be something wrong with the table listing the building requirements for the fountain.

Glimmer Fountain
Build: 50/3 hrs | 2 fancy beam, 1 builder's paste, 5 glimmerdust, 3 fancy block
Level 1: 350/3 hrs | 15 glimmer stone, 15 glimmer marble, 1 builder's paste, 10 water
Level 2: xxx/3 hrs | 15 glimmer stone, 15 glimmer marble, 1 builder's paste, 10 water
Level 3: xxx/3 hrs | 40 glimmer marble, 40 glimmer stone, 5 living wood, 5 piles of seeds
Level 4: xxx/3 hrs | 65 glimmer marble, 65 glimmer stone, 10 glimmerdust, 20 water

Building the fountain gets you to Level 1. The 15 pieces each at Level 1 gets you to Level 2. The 40 pieces each at Level 2 gets you to Level 3.

You took the words right out of my mouth! I was thinking the same thing yesterday.... That it's turning into home story. This has turned into a "decoration" game. That's not what attracted me to it in the first place. The one decoration I do want, the splendid Christmas tree, which at least has some benefit, hasn't made a reappearance for who knows what reason. It appears to me it has gone in the direction of enjoying their art work (deco) more than story telling and truly rewarding for hard work. I'm normally not very negative but this isn't what I signed up for.

I think I will be playing this one causally, happy to take a break of checking in so much and wait for an event that has something interesting or the storyline to continue. Time with the family is coming up soon with a vacation so maybe in a backwards way this is meant to be. My only goal will be to reach 600 fireworks to reach community prizes and hopefully finish fountain as I hate unfinished deco. Sorry I won't be contributing as much this time to the community but hopefully things work out for us!

Thanx for telling yet again, dear! (:o sorry! While I wrote it down I already thought: I must have overlooked while trying to find out).

I'll pay extra attention now, cause I don't really like the looks of level 5.
I think I won't go further than 3, then.
Did this before: I didn't like the looks of the castle gardens and the vineyard estate fully upgraded either >>> it would be nice if we could choose the way it looks afterwards :eek:

I am so glad that I saved a couple of Christmas trees from last year! They look so nice with the reindeer stable & kingdom inn (that give drops) So what happened with this year? For the first time in 2 years I won't be playing constantly for the big prize because all I see are decorations - unless there is a big surprise next week.

I would just like to say whoever did the art for the level 1 and two fountains, which is where I am, they are lovely. The old world style is beautiful. To me, it's the beauty of this game, song with the main storyline adventures, that have drawn me in. Seasonal quests as options are a nice bonus, which I may or may not have time for. The competitive side of me wants to finish them all, but life calls. Thanks team!

I know what you mean! I'm torn too, but then I think about how they also said the color changing fountain would drop a wisp sometimes after everyone complained. It must be ultra rare because mine only drops 1 water every 12 hours. However, it did drop 1 fish on its very first drop, but never again after that. It's so hard to tell what they will do.

Community means all players and the C/prize is all players working together to get a prize. Individual means you doing all the work ;)
The link has more info on how a community event works. hope that helps. :)

Did the P?C.Police decide no Christmas Trees? Discovered my trees from last year drop goodies if you chop. Only tried one chop. Since we may never get them again. I'll treasure mine and pull them out every year.

WARNING even one chop and you won't be able to store the tree for next year. I accidentally must have chopped one once and now cannot keep it,

I think all the prizes are just leftover stuff S8 threw together at the last minute. None of it makes any sense. Some spring items & now a harvest item??? This event is all over the place ---- except for the holiday season that we're actually in right now.

As long as we are talking about how the decor doesn't fit the season can someone tell me how a balloon arch and a sci-fi blown glass sculpture fits in with a medieval kingdom? It really would be good for the game's economy to just rerelease the Christmas trees or the Polarian quests. And please S8 no more non-animated water features ever! They just look lame, especially when I've got Greselda's fountain bubbling away prettily in my castle's courtyard.

I had the same thought. Are we afraid to say Christmas? No 12 days of Christmas, no trees, no Santa, and my orphans aren't even making decorations out of holiday felt. Not even hot chocolate, gingerbread cookies and candy canes.

The decorations quest has gotten old. I have an army of 15 elves, 10 pointsettia, 7 lampposts, 3 ice rinks, 3 gingerbread houses, 3 snowmen, and 3 sculptures, but no ice fountain.

Also, I don't think the community event was explained well this time. There was a quest in the book to upgrade your fountain, and meanwhile fireworks started dropping. It may be confusing for new players.

Bring back the Christmas trees!

EBJW
12-20-15, 08:58 PM
I wonder what S8 has in store for us in spring: fall-items....?!


It's not only the non-season related quests (well, rewards), but also:
- suddenly we get orphans overwhelming our kingdoms. Many wonder what's going on; we were told things would be explained, but we still don't know.
- while we wait for a follow-up we get a mystery dinner for grown-ups. A bit confusing, cause it reminds us big time of the bountiful table (looks, time, rewards).
- after the food shelter we get our Xmas-spirit: big big quest, gathering lots of deco (I'm so glad the snowman was one of the side-prizes, but I really feel for the many that hoped for Xmas-trees, one of the few items not offered). But then, in the middle of all, even a week before X-mas, we are already thrown to New Year's Eve! I had to store my new Xmas-deco to make room for the necessary collecting buildings; instead of a nice Xmas-kingdom I got a messy non festive one... And not only that: while we are trying to adjust, gathering firework-things, we discovered we had to make another jump in time, cause we get spring-related prizes.....

What the......?!?

The 2 overlapping events (big quests) are overwhelming: many of my neighbours either stopped collecting Xmas-deco, or hardly participate in collecting fireworks (or don't at all). And there are many longtime players among them (won't even try to think how lower level players must feel...).

Please understand me correctly:
we really appreciate the regular updates, having lots to do, but please all in good time, and in the right time!!

I sure wish I had come here and looked before upgrading my fountain from 3 to 4 It was perfect, now it has a very bright blue thing out of the top, and those flowers are too bright! I do not want flames coming out of the corners now! I agree with everything that has been said so far. Too much decor that does not fit in with the medieval faerie theme. My kingdom turned into a mish mash of uncoordinated, stuff. I am storing my extra buildings, stopping work on this goal, will go back to the main goals. again. I want to reorganise my kingdom, actually use some of the paths and walls I have put away in an effort to put out 12 cottages, or multiply conservatories. although I may put out an army of gnomes if I feel I may be under siege in the future.

I thought the same thing, at first. Then I realized.... No matter what it looks like, it's going into storage anyway. So I'll continue to upgrade it completely then never look at it again until I scroll past it in inventory.

I'm looking forward to clearing out all of the extra buildings. I haven't decided if I'm going to put them up as soon as I hit 600 or if I'll leave them out. I don't care about the individual prizes (and probably won't care about the community prizes, either).

I couldn't have said it better myself.

They put out Christmas trees on Monday before Christmas last year so I'm holding out slight hope but they also had hinted by this time last year. Not that it matters to them, but they're losing me with the direction this game is going. The mystery table was nice, it gave me hope they were getting back on track to what attracted me to this game... But now I see I was wrong. Rewards worthy of the effort required.... Rewards that help succeed in the game. I'm not here to play a decoration game even though I try to make it look nice. I have no desire to redecorate every week or month. This is far from what initially got me involved. I've spent thousands with this company, literally. My mistake. They could've at least brought back the gem-bought Christmas trees, even if they didn't want to have the gift-giving of the coin-bought trees.

Rant over, for now.
