Glimmerwood antics have run rampant once more! Only this time, something far more nefarious may be at hand... No one has seen anyone suspicious about, have they? Ensuring the kingdom's safety is a ruler's top priority!!!

[==Update requires completion of A Faerie-ful Queen, and will be here to stay.==]

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

The description of the shimmering sands as posted by meme has been updated. Shimmering sands ONLY drop from the Magic Garden. They will NOT drop from the Plume Hive adventure.


My observation: seems to me the average wait time for a strand drop is around 5-7 collections. I think that's why we are getting a month to complete part 3 before part 4 starts end of Feb. The rest of the goal can be completed quite quickly if you're prepared. The goal just ends in limbo like the other parts. So bring on P4!




Goals:
1. Spritely Snooping
Follow Azalea among the flowers 0/10 (skip 20 gems) [fruit trees, faeriebed, all flowers, mushrooms, multi-coloured hedge]
Trail Azalea through the Market Place 0/5 (skip 50)
Check a level 5 Faerie Bulb 0/5 (skip 50 gems)
Rewards: 1750 coin, 6 xp

2. Panic At The Plume Hive (collecting completes this goal)
Adventure to the Plume Hive
Requirements: 3 allergy potion, 5 smoked fish sandwich, 1 faerie offering
Allergy Potion - 2 hours - 1 vital extract, 2 sugar, 1 apple
Vital Extract - 2 hours - 5 piles of seeds, 15 mushrooms, 3 living wood
Smoked Fish Sandwich - 1 hour - 1 bread, 1 butterfish, 5 cabbage
Faerie Offering - 4 hours - 3 cake, 15 jewels, 15 silver

Rewards: 390 coin, 3 xp

3. Anyone home?
Search for clues at the Magic Garden. (It may take several trips to complete this step. 1-2 shimmering strands drop). When the strands drop, the completed rewards screen appears.

4. An Ominous Glimmer
Examine the Shimmering Strands 0/1 - Magic Forge, 4 hours - 5 shimmering strands, 20 faeries murmur, 30 glimmer shards (the green ones)
Check on Fwipple (collect from a faerie bulb)
Rewards: 1750 coin, 6 xp
Note: it takes 5 strands from the magic garden to do the craft to examine the strands. This is going to take a long time!
Note: it was posted that the examination goal may have only produced blythedust, so for the hoarders, you may want to only get extra shimmering strands and not do 2 crafts.

5. Threatening Threads
Take Fwipple and Preedle to safety 0/3 (visit Sabina's house)
Rally the Knights! TO ARMS! 0/1 (go on any adventure) returning and collecting completes this goal.
Have Level 5 Watchtowers or Lantern Spires 0/4 update: you need to HAVE 4 of these at level 5. It is not collecting from as previously thought. Thank you sourp4tch for letting us know. ;)

6. A Potion From, And For, The Past
Chop down 5 Blythewood trees 6 chops each. you can have 1 chop left in preparation (worked for me!).... SW
Prepare the Fadeprint Elixir 0/1 - Potion Shop, 8 hours - 50 water, 10 enchanters essence, 50 Blythewood Dust
Check the Fur Burrow 0/1 (go on adventure) returning and collecting completes this goal.

The next part to this goal is Search & Rescue: http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?89381-Castle-Story-2-25-Update-Search-and-Rescue-Part-1

Just don't collect from the keep until you get to that goal.
I'm curious what is the 3rd step. It was totally skipped over to step 4. Anybody remember what they did after collecting the adventure?

I had just gotten to the part where it says to place Fwipple in the faerie bulb, but I didn't want to take her out of my inventory! lol so I came to the forum to see if we ever get her back out and found this thread! Of course I went around and did everything in my whole kingdom first though....how many times before I figure out to check the forums first!! lol!! so now it will take a little longer to do everything.
So Fwipple is still there in the faerie bulb? from the last quest? she never comes out? I see part of this quest is to "check on Fwipple"

The "Examine the Shimmering Shards" is actually in the Magic Forge:
28162

So it's going to take days and days to get this done. No rush since it looks like there will be a Part 4 and that will likely be released months from now. Oh well, still grateful for Part 3 being finally released.

Question for S8:
And are they Strands? Or Shards??

Question for S8:

I know, it's confusing. Since it's the strands that drop from the magic garden, it seems like we take 5 of those to make the "shards" since that it what the Forge says? Maybe the picture is wrong?

I'm going to collect enough strands to complete two of these crafts for my hoarding. So it will be days before I get there.

I collected from my plume hive adventure but didn't get any special drops. Got the goal for the magic garden, collected from there but didn't get any strands and the goal didn't check off so I'm still on goal 3. I had read that the adventure drop wasn't guaranteed but I hadn't realized that magic garden drops were random too. Oh well. At least this isn't a timed event.

Does anyone know if the plume hive adventure might still drop strands once you finish that goal?

The visit to the Plume Hive was to find all the Faeries gone.
Because Sabina had seen Azalea flitting about the kingdom earlier, Ivy & Sabina decided to check around the kingdom for clues.

sorry, I did the goal backwards so it completed when I collected from the Magic Forge

- only saw the black ribbon telling me that I was maxed on Blythedust.
can only surmise that Blythedust was the item - not how many or if anything else was there too.
did not find a new item in my inventory and I checked all the pages. lol
maybe someone else can let us both know.

the Fadeprint Elixer produces a bottle for your inventory and the inventory card has max of 99.

For anyone far enough...do the strands keep dropping from the Magic Garden after completing step 3-the examine one? I'd like to collect as many strands as possible, and so I'm wondering if I need to hold off examining them to collect more. Granted it's hard enough to collect 5 but since I know I have a month, I might hold off. BUT...if they do continue to drop then I don't need to hold off. Thanks for any info.

Same here, nothing from the magic garden and the visit didn't register. I am waiting for the magic garden to be ready again. Fingers crossed! As for the towers and spires, I had 2 level 5 spires and 2 level 4 towers. So I went ahead and leveled up the towers so I could knock out those visits all at once. :)
Other than that I'm not rushing, like SW, I like updates that take a while to finish....and aren't timed!

I'm not getting any strands from the Plume Hive adventure either. Wonder why since the description on the back of the strand card says "Found around the plume hive...What could they be from?" Exact words...lol

Hopefully I'll get some (or one) from the magic garden in the morning. Still just at 1 strand...lol. Glad to hear though they are dropping at least.

What is the gem skip on this? Don't have a single tower in a bid to get RP, just wondering if I need to sell on Royal building to make a tower? With no strands yet, and all building materials at 99, it won't be a problem except loss of RP

Good luck! I made the mistake of just clicking on the magic garden rather than going thru the button in the goal book. Thus, it didn't give me credit for visiting. Oh well, other than monster hunting, this is all I have to do so I'm not in a huge hurry

Have Level 5 Watchtowers or Lantern Spires 0/4 (collect from these 4 times. You can have more than 1 at level 5 to speed things up, but 1 tower/spire will do. :) SW )

Hey everyone!

This behavior is inconsistent with how the quest is supposed to be set up - it is supposed to be have Level 5 Watchtowers/Lantern Spires, not to collect from Watchtowers/Lantern Spires.

I'd hate for folks to spend resources on upgrading their buildings, only to have those efforts be in vain :( Likewise, I wouldn't want you guys to spend gems on speed-ups expecting it to complete the task, only for it to revert later (in the event there's some weird bug going on). So, can anyone who's unable to complete the quest by having 4x Level 5 Watchtowers and/or Lantern Spires please write in to support@storm8.com ? This will help us make sure everything is working properly and no one gets bugged out of their quest completion!

Thanks! Hope you all enjoy the quests and story <3

sorry, I did the goal backwards so it completed when I collected from the Magic Forge

- only saw the black ribbon telling me that I was maxed on Blythedust.
can only surmise that Blythedust was the item - not how many or if anything else was there too.
did not find a new item in my inventory and I checked all the pages. lol
maybe someone else can let us both know.

the Fadeprint Elixer produces a bottle for your inventory and the inventory card has max of 99.

hope this helps
dabag

Thanks Dabag, that *does* help, cuz it means we really only need to craft one (not two, for any kind of souvenir).
Do you recall (or did you notice) if the shimmering strands (aka glimmer spiders, lol) continue to drop from the Magic Garden after Step 4 & examination is finished in the magic forge or did they stop dropping?

Just visited the garden a second time - got neither shimmering strands nor did the goal check ... So the drop rate is definitely 0-2 ... At this rate it will definitely take me a month to complete this quest...

Search for clues at the Magic Garden. (It may take several trips to complete this step. 1-2 shimmering strands drop).

I have spent 3 days going to the Magic Garden (22 hrs each time) and I still do not even have 1 shimmering strand??????? What the? No way to gem through it either, just have to wait for Storm8 to decide to let me proceed???? I have been at level 50 for years and honestly, this is getting quite tiresome~! I really dislike games or events where it is all just luck! I am almost 66 years old and I have never had luck at anything, I am used to working hard, sometimes very hard, but at least hardwork USUALLY pays off in the long run??

I think we can assume that the shimmering strands are a rare drop and for this particular one goal is why we get (at least) a month to do it :) Getting 5 for the craft (and more for the hoarders who want souvenirs) it's going to be ~slooooowwwww~ going (without gems). Pop over to my tavern and I'll serve drinks whilst we wait!

So, the hoorders (like I am) need atleast 11 strands: 2x 5 for crafting, 1 for inventory. I'm a bit slow, so I just got to the step "visit magic garden" this morning, and forgot to check the forums on forehand. Dropped nothing, so maybe better luck to Oerol :)

In the opening post it is mentioned that we have atleast februari to finish this goal, but it's not a timed event. So where does this "atleast februari" come from? Is it in preparation for the next part?

Rare? Sounds more like ultra rare if you have to collect 5 and they don't drop each time and waiting a whole day just to see if ou get 1-2 is a bit silly. Why not let them drop from the gazebo or the respite?

It seems this new series of goals are designed to take a couple weeks.

Actually, sweetie, if you're just wanting a souvenir "glimmer spider", I think ya only have to collect 6 of 'em from the Magic Garden.
If you go back a page or 2, Dabag revealed that the "examine glimmer strands" only produced a blythedust, nothing new. So with that, I don't think there's a point for us hoarders to double craft for that step.

And the "at least February" part is because the description with the new App update reveals that the next part of this quest line will be released on Feb. 25. :)

I've just finished upgrading 4 watchtowers and spires in preparation for goal 5. Wow, that wiped me out of all the iron ore and silver I was maxed on! If you don't have these, it might be useful to start getting prepared as it takes some serious resources if, like me, you only had level 2 ones at most.

I'll post on page 1 what you need to upgrade. Spires and towers need similar, but slightly different items to upgrade. Done

Just a reminder about the Blythewood Trees - you need to grow them first if you don't have any/enough for the goal. You can store them as saplings and fully grown, but unchopped. If you don't have any fully grown, you can prepare for this as well if you want to. Goal says to chop down 5 Blythewood trees. It takes 6 chops to clear 1 tree. As with other similar goals, we've been able to have only 1 chop left as the goal has been about clearing the tree. Need confirmation on this though.

I'm not getting any strands from the Plume Hive adventure either. Wonder why since the description on the back of the strand card says "Found around the plume hive...What could they be from?" Exact words...lol

Hopefully I'll get some (or one) from the magic garden in the morning. Still just at 1 strand...lol. Glad to hear though they are dropping at least.

I have collected 4 times (4 days) from the magic garden but no strands. Anyone else having this frustrated problem?

Note: it takes 5 strands from the magic garden to do the craft to examine the strands. This is going to take a long time!!

Your not joking when you wrote that sentence!!

6th visit and NOTHING!!!! Not that I'm glad no one is getting strands but glad to know I'm not alone. Using a resource that has a 22 hour reset for a very rare drop is ridiculous!! Yes, I'm thankful for the storyline related quests/goals but would still like to enjoy the adventure in the process.

7th visit and still nothing... It's broken!

I am also at 10th visit to the magic garden - not a sausage, let alone a strand. It is pretty tedious!

I am also a little irritated because during the monster hunt the fangbeasts were nowhere to be found. As soon as it finished they began running riot. I hardly have to look at my kingdom and one pops up. This cannot be coincidence!

Is this what everyone is collecting the strands for? A separate thread about the strands up on the main page says it's timed and that "it takes a month to complete part 3 and that is why we are getting until the end of February to complete the goal".
http://http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?88820-Shimmering-strands (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?88820-Shimmering-strands)

It's for a storyline goal. It's untimed and to have it right now, you'd have to have all previous storyline goals completed. Once you get to the proper part of the story, you'll get the goal.

For people that want to do new goals right when they come out, they have to finish this goal (including getting the strands) before the end of February. From the description in the App store, it looks like the next part of the storyline comes out at the end of Feb. If you don't care, you can take your time, as this is an untimed goal (thankfully!).

My observation: seems to me the average wait time for a strand drop is around 5-7 collections. I think that's why we are getting a month to complete part 3 before part 4 starts end of Feb. The rest of the goal can be completed quite quickly if you're prepared. The goal just ends in limbo like the other parts. So bring on P4!

I got my first strand right after my Knights returned from the Hive. Then this next week, nothing. Because of being away from the house, my castle Knights and garden were in sync so I decided to try sending them back to the Plume Hive. Collected from the castle first and then from the Magic Garden. Whoo Hoo! Two strands this time!! May just be a coincidence but sent the Knights back to the Hive.

Come on guys! They need to drop more than that. I still only have 1 on my main account and I check every day. It's silly. You need to make it drop from more places like the fairy bulb, and respite. Checking only the magic garden with a drop rate of once per week is stupid.

It may still be just a coincidence but I collected from my castle knight's quest to the Plume Hive, and immediately collected from the Magic Garden and I got another shimmering strand.

Chop down 5 Blythewood trees 6 chops each. you can have 1 chop left in preparation (worked for me!).... SW

It looks like we might have till the end of Feb to do this goal. So, take your time! :) SW.


Sort of anticlimactic ending. I gemmed the stupid threads as I had plenty of free gems. But then after visiting the fur burrow, I get the anouncement that we need to to see what happened and then the goals were done. I guess this will continue, but after all that, it just ends?

Be prepared for disappointment for those that are working so hard to get the threads.

1 note I wish I had thought of. I was maxed on blythdust. I chopped all the trees and then made 2 Fadeprint elixirs and used all my blythdust. Wish I would have made the elixirs first, then chopped the trees.

So you can chop the trees down to 1 hit, but you may be missing out on replenishing the blythdust.

I even tried killing off the troll in case it wouldn't give a strand if I had a beast on my place...didn't help~ I don't like to bother fighting the beasts because I am maxed on everything they give me so it is just a waste~ I never collect from my manticores or dragons because I have been maxed on scales for several years now, have a ton of them in storage too. I even put one of my mermaid ponds in storage because I have been maxed on those things too~ I guess I am about done with this game, it is not much fun anymore :^ ( I really did enjoy it though for quite a few years.

That's very true, and after spending gems, we find that it wasn't worth the prize anyway. Lack luster prizes are what is making this game boring. Now they're adding impossible quests too?! Crazy!

The cap for the Elixir is 99, so probably we need to use at least 1 in part 4, but it could be more. For example a quest specific adventure with one element being the elixir instead of the offering (as no one is there).

I thought this theory was bizarre but I decided to give it a try. Not specifically with the Plume Hive adventure, but with any adventure. If I collect from the castle and then immediately collect from the Magic Garden, would it drop a strand. Believe it or not, so far it has worked. I was getting no strands before, and I again got no strands when I didn't do this, but the three times I tried collecting from MG right after castle, I got strands! Can anyone else try it?

That was the first thing I did when the quest came out. I immediately collected from the garden after coming back from an adventure in the castle. Nothing. Kept nothing for days. Then finally 1. Then nothing for days and finally I now have 2, but back to nothing.

Been what, 8 days and I only have 4. TWICE I have received the 5th one, only to have the game "reset" and remove the 5th one. Once I had already started the "Examine Glimmer Strands" and it cleared it and reset.

I can send for the adventure from my castle but my barracks shows "locked by goal". Doesn't make any sense. Any idea how to fix that?

:) ooh ooh, pick me! Lol!! ok, so you have to go on and collect 1 fur burrow adventure in the castle for it to then be unlocked in the barracks. :) it's about collecting that allows it to unlock in the barracks.

Finally got the 5th strand on the 15th! Started to think it was just all a dream.

Got my second, that is SECOND, strand today. At that pace, I might have them all maybe sometime after Easter. Maybe ...if I keep playing consistently every day.:mad:

Hah! I thought maybe it was just me. I still have only one glimmer strand, even though I play every day. Not happy either.

What a tedious exercise. I have three and i have been at it god knows how long ... Every 22 hours, click, bugger none this time, repeat....
I would have much preferred something complicated to make - involving careful optimization of resources, timing etc. This is plain boring.

I don't understand the reasoning behind these super rare drops. I hope people are not dropping the game because of these. The forum has been eeriely quiet.

Seems they are in a kinda twisted tie. Waiting on 1 more strand seems to feel like waiting on the new update. Just like sour4patch said wait till tmw. Lets hope i can start new quests by clicking on Magic Garden.. Kill 2 elephants with 1 stone
