PART A - Princess Lorelei's Fountain
prepared by SpiritWind.
Main storyline.
This is part of a quest chain that unlocks at level 22. That quest is not time limited! It's here to stay, so no worries if you're not level 22 yet or don't finish it before the season is over.


Q: Where do I get the Sapphire's from?
A: The sapphires were a reward from a previous iOS only goal. The only way to get the sapphires now is to make them from gold coins in the trade wagon. The fountain takes 2 sapphires which need 10 gold coins each.

Update on Lorelei's Fountain: the fountain will ONLY drop tokens during the monster hunt events. After the event is over it will not drop tokens.
Fountain Drops during a Monster Hunt: gold troll token (for cooking camp), water, mermaid scales, fish
Fountain Drops between events: water, mermaid scales, fish

Goals
1. Have 2 sapphires (this goal auto completed for most of us, so I need more info if anyone can post)
2. A Mermaid's Gift - Get Princess Lorelei's Fountain from the Trade Wagon
Reward: 270 coin, 2 xp, 3 gold tokens
Note: see pictures below for details.



PART B - Monster Hunt Event Season 4 (January 2015)
timed event

Goals for Season 4
Part 1: Tokens For My Liege! - collect 30 tokens, complete any Token trade. Reward: 1400 coin, 5xp, 1 pile of tokens.
Part 2: Baron, The Slayer - defeat any 10 monsters. Reward: 1400 coin, 5xp, 1 pile of tokens.
Part 3: Inglorious Baron - defeat any 25 monsters. Reward: 2400 coin, 7xp, 1 Season 4 slayer statue.


Tips and Tricks:
* Get rid of any monsters on your board. You can tell if you have one you can't see because of the music.
* DON'T tap the troll pit!!!! Regular trolls don't drop tokens. Neither do pink skunkupines, pink alicorn, wedding alicorn, Gem horses.
* Monsters also drop their normal items in addition to the tokens
* Do the Bronze Hunter Trade if you are nearly maxed on Shield tokens so that they don't go to waste
* A Level 5 Jousting Arena will spawn a monster on every collection.

* if you get the cooking camp, gold tokens will still drop
checking on whether gold tokens will drop from fountain after event concludes. SW 27 Jan.

so so the fountain is both useless and ugly, and the rest of the update is more coin collecting for the cooking camp I long ago stopped caring if I ever get. Adding som sappy dialog about the ruler doesn't make this main storyline. Guess I'll keep my sapphires and the trade wagon will go straight back in storage.

I think that the fountain is supposed to be a 3x3 building while it appears to be 2x2. It only allowed me to place it in a larger space and not a 2x2 space. Could anyone check that?

There seems to be a possibility that it can drop troll tokens, from the text...

I just cleared some space like you mentioned and it worked. So although it is only a 2x2 if you try to put it on a 2x2 space it won't work. If you clear room for 3x3 it worked. Thanks for the help!

edit: to further test the theory I tried to move things back and it wouldn't let me, giving the red unable to place.

Okay, a little help, please. Where does Princess Lorelei's Fountain come from?

I have collected 30+ tokens, made a trade, read that you need to craft it, but don't know from where.

Loving the Blue Boars! Thank you S8! Very helpful! Now I just need to figure out where the fountain comes from!

Edit - Have been to my workshops, kitchens, potion shop, greenhouse, magic forge, as well as a host of other places. Still have no clue where the fountain comes from!

The sapphires are from some iOS only event. Checked on my second game that doesn't have them, and it seems the only way to get the sapphires now is to make them from gold tokens in the trade wagon. The fountain takes 2 sapphires which need 10 gold tokens each.

PS. ...lol, yes, Lorrainne & Nat ~ *another* stagnant fountain for the collection! :rolleyes: lol

There is a question of whether giving up the sapphires for the fountain is worth it... Given the fountain is a main storyline item and will continue to drop gold tokens on occasion, I'd say yes it's worth the tokens.

I'll update the first page shortly with more info. :) SW.

Agree! I also need to know whether the trades for the ability to craft the statues are still there for those that do not have them already. They are not available as an extra craft in the trade wagon now, so just want to confirm if that's still an option.

The ability to craft any other sapphires is not in the Trade Wagon once you have 2.

I've spent over 120 energy in the last few hours and not spawned a single monster. It's incredibly frustrating! I even looked around my kingdom to check to see if I left one out somehow that would prevent more from spawning but no, my kingdom is monster-free. Argh!

put your music on to see if there is a monster lurking somewhere unseen. Otherwise, I've finished updating post 2 with all known info and it has places to collect from for each of the beasties. I find if I use the 'quick collection method' I have better luck at getting beasties to spawn. QCM is in this post at point 7 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?75916-How-to-use-the-Hub-to-find-information-and-ask-questions&p=1164564&viewfull=1#post1164564). They'll turn up.... :)

My kingdom is still flooded with boars because I haven't placed the swamp yet, this hunt shouldn't be too challenging :D
But I swear I will place that swamp right after this hunt ends because there are only so many boars I can deal with

What swamp are you talking about? Is that a joke?

No beasts or skunkupines, etc., after using tons of energy. Then.....Strangest thing ever...

After using the quick collection, a fangbeast finally popped up but instantly disappeared! Anyone else have this happen?

Not to be ungrateful, because as a Droid player I'm glad to finally be getting somewhere with these monster hunts, but I really wish they hadn't asked us to give up these hard-won tokens to get sapphires that ios players could get through other means. Way to give with one hand & take away with the other!

It's the swampy pond from the troll questline. After the last Monster Hunt one of the mods suggested I don't place it to keep the boars coming to me

I don't understand why players are saying Android players now have the equivalent of the Daily Trade. As far as I can see, Android players can get a maximum of 15 energy crates as a reward for the whole season. iOS players can get 10-20 crates per day from the Daily Trade. What am I missing?

It's the same for me, plus, the Daily tasks aren't even showing up in the Kingdom goals. (I am playing on iPhone 6s, with iOS 9.2.1 installed, just in case that information helps.) I've also tried force-closing the game and restarting, but that didn't help either.

Hi, first poster, long time reader,(thanks for the millions of tips :)) hopefully I don't make any mistakes.
Android players do get energy crates as rewards to finish the task, for example I finished the blue boar one and I got some energy crates as a reward. But after I um slaughtered all those 10blue boars, the dead trees will no longer spawn the beasties, sniff.
But, yeah, I played all the hunt seasons on Android and got eleven Gold coins altogether before. Now I got more than that in one day, but I did use some energy crates saved up from who knows when. :)
Edit :I looked it up, it was 5 +10energy crates

How is is this main storyline? The text clearly connects it to the trader trolls, and the dialog introducing the goal equally clearly connects it to an expired, limited time, goal. Seems the term "main storyline" is used loosely these days :(

I do like how the android version has the sovereign, novice and adept hunt challenges now, and I really like that we can battle the monsters anytime at our own pace. For example, given 11 days and I can battle the blue dire boar anytime I hit the dead tree.

But what's up with my disappearing troll tokens, geez, I only had like 9, smh!!?

Every day you can battle a blue dire boar, the counter reset after 24 hours, so better do the fight each day to have the tokens.

I am an Android level 50 and confused...
While being glad that I can finally participate in the hunting events better thanks to Blue Boars and Glimmer Golems for Android (got 8 coins in a day using them up - that's what I got in nearly two full seasons before...) - this Fountain business is weird.
The event where one could earn these Sapphires was IOS only. For Android, the dialogue did not make any sense now. Having to give away nearly all our gold coins for getting the Sapphires just because being on Android is, well, unfair. (Especially as we are JUST starting to catch up on goldcoins, which have been much harder work for us!)
And without clear information - is this main story line, will I need the fountain in the future, will Androids get the event at one point eventually, will the fountain drop gold coins after the hunt season as well - it is impossible to make such a big decision. Please give us Android specific information, please.

At least it's a step in the right direction for Android users.

iOS get goals to fight one blue boar, one purple golem and five skunkupines/fangbeasts a day for 11 days.

I'm an android player and yes, no more blue boar for me now I have completed that task. I guess once I complete the 11 Glimmer Golems, they will stop too. At least I will be able to get the Fountain....but I expect the cooking camp remains out of reach for android players?

I am an android player; I have looked through the forum but can't find anything that confirms that the level 5 jousting arena will spawn monsters for an android player.

(btw I hope it does - the completer / finisher in me just wants to get shot of that task!)

SW Android players do get crates, I'm just trying to work out the maths to decide if it's worth playing those bits of the hunt. ;)


IOS players can get 3 energy crates per day - one from each daily trade.

How much energy is in each crate? The challenge shows a picture of a crate and then +5, but I don't know what that means (we don't usually get crates). Any help would be appreciated. :)

Hey everyone!

Can anyone who's experiencing an issue placing their fountain please submit a ticket to support@storm8.com ? This will help me look into potential issues, so we can get things fixed swiftly.

Thanks!

Happy Hunting :)


lol, you know what the respons will be when i should?
i am getting directed to searche for the solution on the forum..

also a little bit confused why the daily hunts can't be the same on ios and android.
the only advantage for android is that it's not a 24hrs timed hunt.
but still not fair, cause on ios we can obtain 33 crates if this event lasts 11 days, on android max 15!
another thing i am missing in post 1, is when this hunt season expires.

and why are (the needs for) the trades altered so often.
anyone noticed that we are getting less and less good items from the bronze and silver trade?
i only do them cause i need to lower the amount of shield tokens, but in the beginning i got much better rewards for them.

looks more and more like this whole monster thing was thrown in before testing orso.

got the cooking camp last season and do not like spending all energy on monsterbeating for only some energy crates for 11? days.

something else what's not working right, i defeated a blue direboar, got rewarded, the the game resets itself? no dire boar waitin for me, obtained items by fighting it disappeared and no more daily hunt to get that boar back. an just now,the same thing happened with the golem. frustrating!

maybe i'm playing this game too long and getting bored by repeating a 'season'thing i do not like and i'd better go looking for another game which keeps me entertained.

I love Monster Slaying event's. It's the only time you can play without a beast showing up every 3 energy used :rolleyes:

Android player, thanks for FINALLY giving us access to the Blue Boars and Glimmer Golems......only took 3 previous seasons to bother. Why do they have to be different to IOS still though?? If we don't manage to do ALL 55 of the (suddenly scarce of course) beasts in the time frame we get NO energy crates. Same if we don't do ALL of the 11 Golem and Boars (admittedly these two shouldn't be unfeasible since they're guaranteed spawns with dead trees and horses). Its still unfair though as IOS players get a crate EVERY time they get 5 beasts daily. At least make Dire Boars part of the beast collection (for both platforms, I DON'T discriminate :p) as they seem to spawn slightly more than the others.

As for the Lorelei Fountain, 20 gold coins to make it!!!! Unbelievable, some Android players haven't even got that many, even after 3 seasons. I was lucky and had a trick in the last few seasons so somehow managed to get myself up to 50 gold coins, I'm so loathe to spend them though as it took a HELL of a lot of effort to get them.

I think Storm8 should do a one off gift/mini-task JUST for Android players awarding them 10 gold coins as an apology for blatantly discriminating us all..................(I can hope, eh :o hehe).

Please give us Android specific information, please.

I am also looking for the same information I have 8 coins saved from previous 3 seasons amazing in the last 2 days gained 2 of these coins. It is a struggle for an android player to get the coins and to be asked to use 20 coins I know I don't have and probably won't have in the next 11 days to build a fountain which a) won't be able to complete for lack of gold coins this season will I be able to continue collecting coins after season probably not so next season will maybe have completed b) will fountain drop coins after event because using 20 coins to build a fountain which will only drop rarely the odd coin during a monster hunt is a raw deal when could be saving for the cooking camp in the long and very distant future when any android player will have 99 coins. So will spending this 20 coins on the fountain be worth all our hard work or just forget about it and continue being a 5th of the way to cooking camp?

I'm on the Inglorious Baron part and kinda wondering why I'm doing this at all. #1- I don't really need a cooking camp as I'm maxed out on 12 of the items it can cook and #2 - I have forgotten who princess Lorelei is. I guess I need to go back and refresh my memory. And #3 we are doing this for another statue. I hope this will be the last monster hunt but that's just me. The energy crates are the best reason to do this. I do like those and am saving them.

Four Seasons in and a solution for shield tokens to Android players is finally found!
Hunt Challenge Sovereign: Defeat 11 Purple Glimmer Golems (Collect from Sir Daisy! Horses?) (90 hits= 90 shield tokens :) !)
Hunt Challenge Adept: Defeat 11 Blue Dire Boars (Dead Trees!)
Hunt Challenge Novice: Fight 55 Skunkupines and Fangbeasts


This isn't actually true, as the Purple Glimmer Golems take 3 damage a hit most times, and the blue dire boars take 2 most hits. But I am getting way more tokens this time than ever before!
I tried to find the information myself but I couldn't sift thru all the comments passed page 5, most of them aren't about anything lol...

Can anyone tell me if the fountain will drop the gold cons after monster hunt ends?
I still need the cooking camp. It has been almost impossible to get staff tokens before now.. I had 5 gold coins from one of the timed events when this monster hunt started, and I got the statues for completing all the other monster hunts before this one -_- and I already have 14 now.
So I'm wondering if the fountain is there for people who already have the cooking camp? to give them a goal for this hunt? I would really rather spend the gold coins on the cooking camp instead of the fountain unless the fountain is going to help me get the camp faster, and possibly out of monster hunt?

Also, I am on Android, level 36, and I do not have any quest for the fountain or any option to craft it, only the option to trade 10 gold coins for a blue sapphire. The pop-up to craft it keeps appearing but it is not an option to craft anywhere... Will that quest start, or the option to craft it appear if I trade coins for a sapphire?
I need the cooking camp still and am at 14 gold coins, about to finish the blue dire boar quest, 10/11. Will start on the Golem part next, 1/11 there. Only 7/55 in the fangbeast / skunkupine one. That one seems hardest only because you cannot force spawn those monsters like you can the blue dire boar and purple glimmer golem.. it takes a lot of energy to find them. I got a skunkupine off level 5 Jousting Arena yesterday lol.. The rest seems too easy to be a challenge...

Thank you anyone for reply!

riverly
01-23-16, 09:45 AM
The way I see it you have to use 20 gold coins to get the sapphires and then the crafting option pops up. A lot of people are hesitant about doing this because we don't know yet if the fountain continues to drop gold coins. I over simplified it. Maybe someone else will have something to add or correct me.

The Hunt Challenge - android players - you get 1 set of goals for the entire event which are:
1. Hunt Challenge Sovereign: Defeat 11 Purple Glimmer Golems - collect from Sir Daisy or any coin horse



until now sir daisy did not once spawn a purple golem, and only the brown horses (bought with coins) trigger a golem!

I'm not one of them yet but after 3 seasons of hunting monsters under our belts, more & more players have now acquired the Cooking Camp. What is now their incentive during monster hunt seasons since even the monster statues are now no longer craftable for gold tokens in the Trade Wagon?
Sure, they can do the other trades for minimal goodies but there really needs to be additional options to trade for the Troll Tokens besides just the additional kitchen. (Cabbage Hut, please)

....and why, exactly, were the monster statues removed???

riverly
01-23-16, 11:38 AM
Hmmm very interesting. I for one would consider using troll tokens aka gold coins aka cold coins to buy something other than a cooking camp. Cabbage hut sounds good.

I am level 49, Android. This is the first Monster Hunt that has been fun! Thank you S8 for the Blue Boars and Purple Golems. :-) During the previous three hunts, I was able to acquire a total of six gold tokens. Now - only two days into this hunt - I have a grand total of 20. I have traded them for the two sapphires and am looking forward to procuring more gold tokens this hunt, as well as finding some in the fountain!

yes, cold coins keep dropping :)
can't use them for anything, want some?
rofl


I'm not one of them yet but after 3 seasons of hunting monsters under our belts, more & more players have now acquired the Cooking Camp. What is now their incentive during monster hunt seasons since even the monster statues are now no longer craftable for gold tokens in the Trade Wagon?
Sure, they can do the other trades for minimal goodies but there really needs to be additional options to trade for the Troll Tokens besides just the additional kitchen. (Cabbage Hut, please)

....and why, exactly, were the monster statues removed???

I was wondering why the crafting option for statues was removed too.. I have some left over tokens and would love to exchange them for something nice as I already got the cooking camp

Don't know if it has been asked before (been away for a couple of days, and scrolled through, but didn't see it):

besides not being able to make anything else with the golden coins but the cooking camp
why can't we gift tokens to our neighbours?

- I already have the cooking camp, and was looking forward to make another skunk statue, my favourite. Bummer.... Can't....
- Me and my neighbours are always (very) short of sword tokens, the gifts helped a little bit....

I am level 48 Android and also started this season with 6 gold tokens. Having completed the Blue Boars and Purple Golems hunt challenges, I now have 16 - wow!
But: with only the Novice challenge to go, the skunkupines drop 2 shield tokens and the fangbeasts drop 4 shield and 2 sword tokens, where do the remaining staff tokens come from?
Calculation: 4 gold tokens require 200 shield + 100 sword +100 staff.
50 fangbeasts = 200 shield + 100 sword + 0 staff.

i was just gonna ask the same thing...
why can't we send tokens anymore..
removing those fall leaves and holiday felt took forever after they were no longer a use for anything!

another thing that has been changes in our disadvantage, i hardly get any gems anymore, not even from the golden trade.

TL must really want to loose some players, as they also reduced the amount of free gems for installing a new game from 30 to 14, and reaching a certain level from 15 to 6. why even bother playing them now, too timeconsuming for too little rewards.

(some games gave less and even those were reduced to 4 for installing and 2 for reching levels)

I hope for 4 maybe 5 new seasons of hunting monsters and then i would have a chance for that cooking camp.

I am an android player ( level 50) and i have now 18 gold tokens , i killed all purple golems and blue dire boars( thank you TL) and my jousting arena level 5 produce monsters .......i'm login in all day long, but without choping a trap, i wasted a lot of energy for 0 results.

I have Princess Lorelei's fountain ( hoping is a good investment and will continue drop gold tokens after this event).


About free gems for instaling new games is ok to give 14 gems .......but why bother to play that game for 7 gems? ( it take days to reach that level) and there are weeks when i don't have a game to install .

i don't agree. the reward for installing always was 30 gems, and without any notice, from one minute to another TL di take away another piece of our drive to keep playing.
the intention behind this will probably be good for TL's economy as they try to get more players buying gems where they were given for free in the past..
14 gems is not worth the polution of my ipad/phone as after uninstalling, there always stays something behind that slows the device down

I do the silver trade when my sword &/or shield tokens are above 100. The silver trade will drop staff tokens, although lately it's only been 1 at a time. Have gotten up to 3 or 4 staff tokens in a single drop before though.

Probably not posting in the right place, this is the first time I've ever done this. I am playing Castle Story on android and the only challenge I have left is the novice one. But now I can no longer get the beasts to appear when I take care of my horses or tend to the dead trees. So how can I gain gold coins at a decent rate without being able to fight either of these beasts?

The blue boars & purple golems are no longer available after you finish the 2 challenges, so it's no use tending horses or dead trees now. You must get the rest of the tokens from skunkupines / fangbeast / direboars. Note that skunkupines drop only shields(2), fangbeasts drop shields (4) &swords (2) whereas dire boars drop all 3 types. See the post on page 1 for lists of where to get these.

Dire Boars

I'm really disappointed with this event.

I just completed sovereign and adept quests for android, started the hunt with 5 gold coins, now I have 19, so this event wasn't even enough for the fountain. And still no idea if it's even worth getting, does anyone know if it will continue to drop gold coins after monster hunt ends? I'm level 37 and still do not have the cooking camp. Most of my tokens are coming from the glimmer golems that you can force spawn every 2 hours from the glimmergate.

Extremely disappointed , been playing for 6 months now and the first 3 hunts I got nothing, even though I completed the events, the only gold coins I have received have been from other timed events not even related to monster hunt. lol... I took the orphanage to level 5 during the holloween even, which drained everything I had, and it was worthless. The only good reward they have given since I started playing was the glimmer fountain for the new years event. I had just received my first manticore though and was a little upset that they made mysterious venom so easy to get after having manticores as they only way for such a long time. If they don't fix these events or make some way to get gold coins out of monster hunt, I may stop playing as I am very close to the end of all the story lines... I haven't even used any of the energy box rewards from this event. was way too easy but not enough to even fulfill the reward requirements....

happyhoppa
01-24-16, 08:22 AM
So glad you reminded me of the glimmer golems - I'd forgotten about them. As Android player I'm struggling to get enough tokens for the fountain and am holding off deciding whether to spend my hard earned gold tokens on the fountain or save up for the kitchen. Previous 'rewards' have been very variable in their value. Wonder ho w long befor the season ends?
Just tried the glimmer gate and didn't get a glimmer golem probable because of getting past the point in the story line where they spawn. Heho..

Progress. As an android player, the last 3 seasons I had acquired a total of 9 troll tokens. This off season and season 4 monster hunt I am up to 33 tokens so far. If other events are like this one, I will be looking at a lot less than the 33 seasons I had predicted. I don't know if I'll be able to get the 55 skunkupine/fangbeast goal completed, but I am very pleased with this event. My recommendation is to continue and make the most of your opportunities.

I'd definitely agree with this and am also pleased. I'd only made it to 10 gold tokens over the three previous seasons and had more or less given up with the trader trolls. But the changes have made the cooking camp possible. My total is now also just over 30, though I've used up 20 of them on the fountain - I figured that it would be worth it over this and later seasons for the gold coins it drops. (so far I've had one and a few fish).

I don't care if the game doesn't work in exactly the same way for Android as for IoS - just want us to have a roughly comparable chance at play. And we've finally got it. I can live without the odd energy crate.

Thanks for listening S8.

noticed that too, TL has changed quite a lot of things in our disadvantage..
almost no gems are given on trades in the trade wagon as i got many in previous seasons.
and no, this surely ain't main story line, no idea how it would fit in..
everything running now is monster hunt related. (seasonal!)

and before this hunt started i almost went mad cause the skunkupines popped up every 3-5 collecting wheat or sugar.. now i had TWO in days.. but hey, as we were told before, droprates are never changed, rofl

The Sovereign Trade was renamed The Gold Hunter Trade.
The Troll Token still has to be corrected as well.
I am sure the CS team will get around to it, eventually.

So finally raised the 20 coins for building the fountain.

My method was started with 6 coins from 3 previous seasons do purple glimmer goblins and blue dire boars and purchased 3 day starter pack for 3.99 giving 250 energy, 10 dire boar traps and sword coins ( sorry can't remember quantity) then kill skunkupines/fangbeasts 32/55 and build sapphires. Built fountain and received 5 coins.

So 94 coins remaining with 5 hours per collection from fountain assuming 100% drop rate so 470 hours or 19.5833333...Days with only 7 days of event remaining looks like it will be another season of no cooking camp.

But on the bright side started with 6 coins I now have 5 and a ridiculous fountain which will be lucky to drop at something like 5%.

Go figure........

I am level 48 Android and also started this season with 6 gold tokens. Having completed the Blue Boars and Purple Golems hunt challenges, I now have 16 - wow!
But: with only the Novice challenge to go, the skunkupines drop 2 shield tokens and the fangbeasts drop 4 shield and 2 sword tokens, where do the remaining staff tokens come from?
Calculation: 4 gold tokens require 200 shield + 100 sword +100 staff.
50 fangbeasts = 200 shield + 100 sword + 0 staff.

Direboars, the silver trade, and the Direboars statue all give staff tokens. Good luck!

I am level 49, Android. This is the first Monster Hunt that has been fun! Thank you S8 for the Blue Boars and Purple Golems. :-) During the previous three hunts, I was able to acquire a total of six gold tokens. Now - only two days into this hunt - I have a grand total of 20. I have traded them for the two sapphires and am looking forward to procuring more gold tokens this hunt, as well as finding some in the fountain!

Update - I crafted the fountain which has dropped (I believe) four gold tokens so far. I am currently at 16 gold tokens - AFTER trading 20 for the fountain. This has been the best Monster Hunt *ever*!!!

Only need 5 more beasts to complete my Novice Hunt. My biggest advantage for token collection is that Porcine Problems is open in my goal book. Unless I am forced to visit Old Thomas, I will leave it open until I have the cooking camp. :-)

Remember - wells and ponds trigger direboars!

Good luck everyone!

Silver trade.

Sometimes tokens just have to be wasted. If you go into your trade wagon you'll see which one you can use. I'd save them for the gold tokens and not worry if you go over the max if you can't do another trade to reduce your tokens.

No ;) there will be more, so just try your best to get as many gold tokens as you can.... ;)

Hey guys, could someone help me out, please?

Is the Baron- hunter- statue still for grasps? Yesterday I thought I saw "8 days" on the goal, and today it's gone. I'm travelling, so I might have confused "days" for "hours".. which would explain why I'm not allowed to get the statue of this season, and I was at 24/25.. Is that what happened?

BTW Happy belated Australia Day, SW! :) I'm in NSW, it's a beautiful land.

Heaps of time left! The event goes till 1 Feb, so the slayer season 4 statue is still available:)

Only good for people without Love Shack, with the love shack, the Alicorn costs 400 gems all the time.


The iOS daily hunts start 24 hours from when you complete them, so be patient and they will turn up soon if you're expecting them. The event goes till 1 Feb (see post 1) ;)

@spiritwind. i think you mean 24 hours from when the first one was started, IF you finish it within thise 24 hours.
if you let it expire, like the novice hunt which is not doable most times, the next 24 hours start after you tap finish..

and then the hunts are not synchrone anymore.

I can still work on getting the fountain after Feb 1, right? Or do the trades disappear then? I'm currently at 1 sapphire (I feel stupid for doing this trade before making it to 20 coins but I didn't check the forum for the Feb 1 end date) and I have 2 gold coins. I can make about 1 coin every day because I don't get that many monsters despite clearing fields and fields of strawberries. Basically, I'll never make it to 10 gold coins before Feb 1. So I'd like to know if I'm just wasting my time here and if I wasted 10 coins by making that trade.

@esmeetje, Last time the hunt finished the trade wagon was emptied of all trades. I don't think your sapphire is a waste. Just keep going as best you can for the rest of season 4. :)

@annisada, yes that's right! ;)But in the context of the post I was replying to, my post stands. I don't think I've ever been able to finish that hunt... Skunks and fangies don't pop up enough for me! But, yes you're right, the trade refreshes as soon as you click expire if you don't finish it in time.

So finally raised the 20 coins for building the fountain.

My method was started with 6 coins from 3 previous seasons do purple glimmer goblins and blue dire boars and purchased 3 day starter pack for 3.99 giving 250 energy, 10 dire boar traps and sword coins ( sorry can't remember quantity) then kill skunkupines/fangbeasts 32/55 and build sapphires. Built fountain and received 5 coins.

So 94 coins remaining with 5 hours per collection from fountain assuming 100% drop rate so 470 hours or 19.5833333...Days with only 7 days of event remaining looks like it will be another season of no cooking camp.

But on the bright side started with 6 coins I now have 5 and a ridiculous fountain which will be lucky to drop at something like 5%.

Go figure........i have read this several times this is just crazy!! im glad you can stay positive about this. I mean really you gotta laugh at the insanity of this.i mean look at all the hoops you jumped through to end up with one less than what you had. I hope this doesn't offend you, but this just makes me laugh.

Hi all, update on Lorelei's Fountain: the fountain will ONLY drop tokens during the monster hunt events. After the event is over it will not drop tokens.

Thanks for the confirmation. Gives me a reason to rethink whether I want to buy it or not.
The first post mentions this fountain is part of a quest-line starting at level 22. Will this fountain be optional or required to progress through those quests?

Now that android users have the Blue Direboars and the Purple Golems, there is no reason that the Cooking Camp will take two years to achieve!

I started with a toral of measley SIX gold Troll tokens - that was my entire stash from the previous three hunts. Not many had a more sorry total than that!

With the equalized monsters, I quickly drove my total up to the 20 necessary gold troll tokens to get the Lorelei Sapphires to craft the fountain. Now, with drops from the fountain, the reward, and inching along after maxing out all of my monster hunt quests, I am up to 23 gold troll tokens.

As long as we keep getting the equalizer monsters, I will have the cooking camp in two or three more hunts!

Good luck everyone! :-)

PS remember to battle monsters from the jousting arena and collect your daily tokens from the first season's statues, if you have them!

Second question, on old quests that I wasn't able to maybe upgrade something to level 5 now it says that those missing items "from gem" what does that mean and how can I get a hold of those items for example Glimmer fountains needs Glimmer marble and it says "from gems" how can I get Glimmer marble now when that quest is no longer going on?
Thankful for any help!

Q1: as the event has concluded, tokens no longer drop. You just need to wait for the next season now to continue getting gold tokens.
Q2: the Glimmer Fountain event has finished, so the only way to upgrade the fountain is to use gems.

Extract from How Events Work:
* Special adventures, crafts, trades will disappear from the related list when the event expires.
* Any unfinished buildings/items can only be completed with gems at the conclusion of an event.
* Any item earned will remain in your kingdom or inventory.

If I had known the fountain would stop dropping gold coins after the event was over.... I wouldn't have bothered to get it. After all is said and done I am just a few coins ahead of where I was before I bought it. Lesson learned, never again.

Ok, now that the season is ended, would those of you w/Lorelai's fountain say it is worth it? I didn't get any Sapphires from the previous quest so i'll have to use 20 gold coins (I have 41 after this season... I couldn't find a skunkupine or fangbeast to save my life so I only earned off of golem/boars).

NorthWoodsKingdom
02-02-16, 09:24 AM
maz3girl ~ It was definitely worth it for me, but I got the 2 sapphires from that sidebar storybook event which awarded them. If I had to spend 20 of my troll tokens for it, it might be a different story. Hopefully others who used their troll tokens to get it will chime in for ya. :)

ETA: The fountain is of no use to ANY of us now, tho, except for water, fish & mermaid scales since it only has a chance to drop golden troll tokens DURING monster seasons.

No, once you craft one Cooking Camp, it disappears from the Trade Wagon. I doubt a second one will be offered but sourp4tch posted recently that S8 is working on something else to offer in there, so hopefully we'll have that for the next season (my fingers are crossed for the Cabbage Hut!).
I'm still not sure why they removed the options to craft the monster statues for 10/25/50 troll tokens.

There is no max for the energy crates since they're basically considered non-Royal "decor".
The shield, sword, and staff tokens max at 120 but the golden troll tokens have a max of 99.

Unfortunately I used mine, along with other energy sources, to battle as many blue boars as possible this time around but missed the cooking camp mark by about 15 tokens.
