Beastbane Display - April 2016

market, limited time purchase April 2016, 400 gems, 75 gem rebate (rebate expired)

Posted 4/8

Hey everyone!

Wanted to chime in with a couple answers for you all.

*Yes, the Beastbane Display will continue its normal drops outside of Monster Hunt seasons :)
*No, the silver token trades will not remain active outside of Monster Hunt seasons. However, summoning animals through the Mythic Research Center will require Sword or Staff Tokens, and those will be available to you at all times.

Hope that helps, and that you all have fun with this season of the Monster Hunt :)




Dear all, here's the latest scoop from S8 on the Beastbane Display.....

There may or may not be new surprises in the Trade Wagon that require Tokens in the upcoming event. If you want an advantage on these, you should get the Beastbane Display so you get more Tokens.


I'll add this to post 1. Sounds like it will be useful after all..... :) But again, it's an optional purchase.

is this an update? It's Tuesday and I got some dialogue about the troll trade and a new quest

But when I tap Get, the thing is blacked out and not yet available.

Is this a test for Thursday and I was just lucky to see it? It's got a three day timer though...

Also, given that the reward is 75 gems, I bet it's going to cost a LOT.

Ok so placed the trade wagon and it opened it up to buy the beastbane. It costs 400 gems and drops sword tokens and troll tokens. Soooo disappointed...
If I was going to drop $10+ on this game again, it would be for the cabbage hut. I just spent a bunch on the fortune teller and at least get new goals with good rewards, but I can't see spending so many real dollars on just a few virtual items. Why does everything have to cost so much.
Well at least I hope this means they are starting up another monster hunt.

Yes 400 gems with 75 as a return for buying it. Have no clue what it's for. There is a 3 day timer on it. Wow 400 gems looks like inflation is setting in. back of it says will always drop a token.

but no way i am willing to pay 400 gems for that thing. not worht what it gives as i do not need tokens anymore ;)

i am beginning to understand the motivation of TL, lowering gem rewards on installing games, also reducing the amount of this kind of gem earning. throwing in items most players need and offer them as gem sale only. they must be afraid to go bankrupt or something ;) this is not about a game anymore but about money......

also wondering.. is this one for both ios and android ?

I have never received part one part two's new update with Katz. I play every day but I did not get this goal. I did see it on some other boards but I did not know what it was all so I have a I OS so I should have it and I am still chopping rocks trees and flowers searching for the glimmerwood private investigators and believe me I have chopped a lot of rocks and trees and checked a lot of flowers during this Easter egg hunt and still have not got the third finding can you tell me why I never received the part one of this update? This update does this have something to do with it because it does say that it is blocked by a goal but I have to receive the first one in order to get to 2. My farieblub was at a level 5 and I went on many adventures but nothing ever happened to the bulb and I still only receive money from it. No drops if there is any. I looked at the link and it didn't have anything to do with the private investigators and part one so I'm not sure what's going on and I am unable to participate in this quest due to never reciveing the first half.......is this a goal that has to be done in A timely manner ? Can you see what is going on and let you know why I have not gotten this far that's I have spent plenty energy enough to find the third part of the private investigator and because all I did was chop rocks, trees, and flowers during the Easter hunt. thank you very much.

It seems to be all about them money these days that's for sure.. This will not effect the game play, to me once you get to 99 of the troll tokens it won't drops . 22 hours for one troll token just not worth it

I'm so happy, I learn from my mistakes! I don't know how I bought that awful glimmeregg forge (well, I do, it seemed just like the "place" of a community event so I didn't think about it), but I have learned. I did not accidentally buy the beastbane display... After wasting gems on that forge, I cannot imagine it would be worth 400 gems. The forge wasn't needed for the event and now only makes eggs I don't need anymore. I was able to make over 25 eggs during the event and could have without the forge. I am sick of making eggs, why would I want to make more? These are the things that make me stick to my commitment not to buy gems. I might if there weren't so many tricks, but I don't want to waste real money on tricks...

04-05-16, 01:10 PM
Even though I am stuck with the goal "Princess Lorelei's Foundation" and I would like to get the "Cooking Camp", these 2 reason are not enough to justify spending 400 gems on. There seem to be no reasoning for having this object and the price, even with the 75 gem rebate doesn't seem worth it. Also the description does NOT state it will drop gold coins, which is what I need.

I still have tons of those useless "sword tokens (65)", "shield tokens (21)" and "staff tokens (19)" .... why would I want more of them :confused:?

325 gems!?! That's ALOT!
I have some questions before deciding on this expensive purchase:
1) Does this mean the token trades will *always* be available in the Troll Wagon? (Otherwise, why would I want to max out on tokens being dropped every day by this new Beastbane when I can only currently trade them during Monster Hunt Seasons?? ..yep, checked my Troll Wagon, and it is empty of any trade options, as suspected.)
2) Will there be more options to trade for the gold Troll Tokens and if so, what?? (I already have the Cooking Camp so why do I want more Troll Tokens?)

...and would a mod please marry the multiple threads about this same topic? :)

The last few buildings, decorations, have been extremely high in gem cost, and seems to alienate lower level or new players to the game....I am a level 50 player, and that's how I see these feature items.

I don't know if I really need a third kitchen. I do just fine with two. Three would just make my resources go zero faster.

Maybe this is way to end the monster hunt? Maybe it's coming to a close and this is a way to bump up supplies?

Either way, I did not buy the egg forge...and will not purchase this. Either lower your gem cost for new things so everyone can feel involved and not slapped in the face with these high prices, or just stop making them.

Exactly.

Why the heck am I going to spend gems on this item that drops staff, sword or troll tokens if I cannot do anything right now with them?

(I am actually a few troll tokens short for getting the cooking camp, but once I have it, then what? I prefer buying the troll tokens I have left to get the camp)

You have to have your trade wagon on the board for the new building to unlock. 400 gems. What a joke after everything we just went through with the glimmer egg forge. I won't be buying it. I would consider it at even half price but at 400 it's ridiculous.

This is S8's mindset at the moment: Implement a gem trap so players lose most of them. Then a few days later, toss out a gem building or gem item that appears to be needed. Thus, getting the gullible to pull out the plastic & buy more gems to get it,

I can't believe you've received gold tokens from the lucky workshop. I've done about 25 trades and have never gotten anything but coins. Keep telling myself to put it in storage with the leprechaun, stargazer ridge, petting zoo, etc..... Keep hanging on. To the person who thought that the faerie bulb drops something .....only coins. The eggs were pretty but a joke. Why would I want to keep producing them? I do like the rabbit and chick, because they are the same collection time as the chickens. I love that the chick us little, because everything gets so cluttered. We really can only use useful items and very few decorative things.

It does? Haven't seen that yet. Good to know. My last trade netted me a single mermaid scale. :(


I was so sad not to have enough money to buy the egg forge until I figured out that with a little patience I could finish the goal without it.


Don't remember any more what the Tinker's Camp will add to my life and may never since I have 23 tokens and 21 gems.

Yes I've gotten 2 so far but what I do, I save up my lucky magic then do 3 or 4 in a row. I seem to only get coins once or twice when I do that. Then energy or a gold coin, I've never gotten a decoration yet. Unless they add more stuff to the wagon not sure what the tokens will be good for.

After reading the dialog, I'm left wondering why the young ruler is so gullible. I'm with Thurston, you can't trust these things!
We could already have a constant supply of tokens and coins if the statues and Lorelei's fountain dropped all the time and the ability to trade stayed in the trade wagon between hunts.

I'm hoping this doesn't mean the monster hunts are over for good because I am 19 troll tokens short of the cooking camp. (I've only gotten one from the 'lucky' workshop) But if there will be no more hunts, then so be it. I will have 80 golden troll tokens and no cooking camp.

There is a very small chance I might regret not having this beastbane thing in the future, (if they ever add anything else to the trade wagon and also stop the hunts), but I'm going to take that chance and pass on this one.

Unless I can trade a barely used, like new, glimmer egg forge for it. :D

Exactly. I would spend the gems on it if I were free to do trades in the troll wagon whenever I want. I don't have the camp so it would work for me. But if the troll wagon is still locked all the time, except in hunt season, then there's not a lot of point in capping out my coins and wait until hunt season...

04-05-16, 04:02 PM
Can someone please tell us what use we would have for the Beastbane display when we already have the cooking camp? When I got my camp all trades in the trade wagon disappeared alongside with the rest of my tokens. I now have gotten more gold tokens from my Lucky wokshop and still no more trades in the wagon. I would appreciate if we could get enough info to make the right decisions. If we neither need the trade wagon nor the new Beastbane when we already have the cooking camp please tell us so. If this is something that may come in handy further out in the story line, please give us a hint. After I, as so many, wasted a lot of gems on a forge I never needed I will not do anything similar again before I know the tokens can give me an advantage further out in the game.

When it comes to the forge I have already too many eggs and they'll most likely all end up in my inventory now that the event and Easter is over. There's no room to keep all decorations on permanent display. Never neded the forge to get them and sure don't need it now. Appreciate the opprtunity for those not completed with eggs of all colors yet, of course, but back to my question:

Do we have any use for the Beastbane and tokens when we already have the cooking camp???

Since there are no more available trades in the trade wagon and all my tokens no longer show there it's natural to be doubtful and I'm sure I'm not the only one. :confused:

There are numerous items that need our gems...and then there's losing them thru "gem traps". S8 has changed the "watch a video" for gems so that you're lucky if you get 1/day. It seems like forever since the " download & play " a game with gems as a reward has been offered. The cost of new items has gone up and it would seem our only option is to spend money if we want gems. There are many people who are willing to spend their money that way, but I don't think I need any of these new costly and mostly useless items and will not part with my "real life" $. Now if we could spend some of our useless game $ that would be real nice...

I think you have to have your trade wagon out to get the tokens to drop from the lucky trade.

The fact that this thing drops regular tokens is the reason I am concerned that they may be planning to stop the hunts. It could mean that we will have to rely on drops from the beastbane display to get tokens now. I really hope that's not the case. Time will tell.

Also someone on the update thread asked these excellent questions "Will the beastbane display be useful to people who already have the cooking camp?" And "Will there be more trades requiring troll tokens in the future?"

Once again, S8 releases an expensive new gem-only item without explaining in advance how it will work.

It's bad enough that this happens over and over again with timed events and quests where people gem-speed and give up rare resources in the hopes that the final prize will be something worthwhile. And sometimes the prizes are great and sometimes they are total duds. It keeps us guessing and hoping.

So is this going to be the latest glimmeregg forge (another dud) or more like Ivy's bakery (not essential, but it does have some nice little drops). Or maybe it will be the newest cabbage hut which some people love and others have absolutely no use for.

I think it's a little unfair to introduce this new item without any indication of if, when or what new items will be introduced for those who have the cooking camp.

Did anyone else get this quest today? Something to do with the trader trolls and asks me to purchase the beastbane display from the market but it isn't there.

Yeah I got it but it will cost 400 gems!!!! Seems a lot to me. It does say that will will always drop tokens. I can't afford the 400 gems so I will wait and see what happens

The dialog read to me as if there might be other items to be bought with the Troll Tokens in the future aside from the kitchen camp. Do you guys think the same?

325 is too much for me to act on blindly. Hopefully S8 updates us tomorrow.

I jumped right in and bought the bait shop (useless) and the glimmer egg forge (worse than useless). My opinion anyway. I'm not buying another "pig in the poke". I would love to hear others' opinions.

I agree with you. I wonder why TL is offering expensive, useless & worse than useless craft shops. :confused:

I would like to own the Beastbane thingie because it would look great in my tournament area. But 400 gems? For a 1x1 item?

Look, I want the Cooking Camp, but not enough to buy a swimming pool for an S8 exec's summer home.

It does? Haven't seen that yet. Good to know. My last trade netted me a single mermaid scale. :(


Beastbane display is a blatant money grab. I was so sad not to have enough money to buy the egg forge until I figured out that with a little patience I could finish the goal without it.


Don't remember any more what the Tinker's Camp will add to my life and may never since I have 23 tokens and 21 gems.
Yes it does, I've gotten 2 or 3 I like the lucky workshop it's just a little added extra for clicking on a few things.

I agree with you. I wonder why TL is offering expensive, useless & worse than useless craft shops. :confused:

My guess is because too many of us have been accomplishing the quests/events without buying gems. They introduce the buildings with them appearing to be stupendous and/or required additions to our kingdoms, hoping--intending--that we will purchase gems.

Either that or the trolls have taken over S8.

04-05-16, 10:41 PM
What...?? 400 gems?!?
Again?!?

My reaction when the quest opened.

It's becoming a habbit to bring out helpful buildings and items, not for coins, but for many many gems. One after another. Stuff that will be useless after it has lost its purpose (unless enough people complain). Starting out with the tent with many many deco costing lots and lots.

When I started this game most of things could be bought with coins. And the few things needed that required gems was a goal in itself (for me for instance the wizard schools; I really had to save up gems for that, and it was exciting when I could finally buy one!). Although I'm a longtime player now I miss in all these new rapidly following gem-consuming items the excitement. Too much has been thrusted down our throats.

Luckily I already have the cooking camp, but if I hadn't I would certainly not have bought this beastbane display. Nor did I buy lots of previous things.
I don't like the strategy behind it. Guys, I know, money has to be made; but this way....?! With the few people that buy these things you chase many many more away; I wonder if it's (literally and figuratively) worth it...

jopik
04-05-16, 10:45 PM
Not buying neither, sorry but 400 gems are too much for useless tokens we can't even trade in the wagon!
Many people already have the cooking camp, I think it's too late to offer us such an expensive, small item.

I've often wondered about those that don't use the forum. Do they often just assume they need to buy these things to progress in the game? I'm sure that must happen.
An explanation that comes out on the splash screen with new items would be really helpful, S8. Mind you...it might affect the revenue!

04-06-16, 02:42 AM
Yes it says it is locked by goal, but the goal is to buy it? lol!
it says the reward is 75 gems!! I can't imagine how much this thing is going to cost!! eeek!

I got it and a new push to buy the glimmer egg forge, which would cost a total of 700 gems. WAY too much. They're getting too greedy for a game. And I already have the lorelei fountain which was supposed to get troll tokens - I've yet to get a single token off of it.

Agreed that the bait shop and glimmer egg forge were useless. I shouldn't have rushed in to buy those. I'm definitely not buying this this time and it's not like I have enough gems left to do so anyway cuz I fell into the gem traps a few times while collecting eggs...




Yes I assuming so, I'm not going to buy it. The lucky workshop drops the gold tokens I get them there every few times I make a trade. I'm not sure. Guess we have to wait and see.

You're really lucky. So far I have only gotten energy and coins with the lucky workshop :(

There's just way too little information to make a decision like many have said.
Most importantly: Will there be other items to trade troll tokens for after the cooking camp and will the hunting seasons continue?

I don't have the cooking camp yet but I want the cabbage hut the most right now so definitely not willing to jump in blindly here.

i did buy the cabbage hut, but why? the only useful thing until now from the barons tent was the glimmer ali..
all the other things do not really give things you can't get from other buildings/plants etc.

same for the fortune teller, would not buy that again, find it's rewards disappointing.

I like getting things from the tent - it's one of my favorite features in the game! The most useful so far are 2 glimmer alis and the gentleman troll.

I would consider this if we had more info. Right now in my trade wagon I can not trade regular tokens, my only option is to trade gold tokens for the cooking camp. If I purchase this will I have the other trades back? It would make sense for me if I can collect the tokens but not convert them to anything useful.

Someone said the trade wagon disappeared after they got the cooking camp. Can anyone else verify this? Again, would be of no use if the tokens can't be converted to goods.

Yes they do assume they need them to get ahead especially the android players. I tell all my neighbors about the forum but some don't come. Then they'll make a purchase thinking it will get them ahead. I tell them when in doubt ask me first I'll let you know. Some find the forums difficult to navigate. I know a few already not happy with the purchase.

Don't know who oversees this game, but they need to know that their gem only antics are driving away long time players. About 1/3 of my neighbors have given up and I check in only periodically now..sometime once a week on thursdays to see whats new. As a player whos been in the game for 3+ years and having seen other "story" games go by the wayside, I should think that they have learned lessons that could apply to the games that actually have a long term following. Take a page from more successful games that have people actually spending money because what they purchase have long term worth, not these items that hold value for a week or less. I love my kingdom, but may be looking to place it on the market soon and move along! Sad!!!

Because of the hut I got 3 G Ali, gentleman troll, and a silly looking horse. I got a 4th G Ali at a discount. I regret not getting the cabbage hut sooner. If I could get a second hut I would, especially if they keep offering good unique stuff.

only like getting things if it's for free ;).. looks like you spend gems when you see a "grand prize" that you want?
if that's true and happens often, it would be cheaper to buy the cabbage hut. as i am maxed out on almost everything most prizes add nothing to my game

i only got the option for the glimmer ali once, one day before the event ended.. i believe other players got i earlier, and that's not really fair to those who got it so late as a grand price.

lucky to have the love shack so i can craft the white alicorns that give 40 energy once a week.
would be nice if TL decided to redo that goal for those who started playing later.

I agree with Zelda.. this greed is pushing me away.

After falling into the gem trap a couple of times, I don't really collect to use energy to leave hearts for neighbors.. it's risky!
Today is the second time I've checked the game, I used to be an everyday-all day, player and did love investing in the game, but for things I choose.. not traps resulting payment for energy when I have many other ways to supply such.

It's the first time I have not rushed to buy a building that was offered, I have not rushed either to get the cute animals in the features. I did get the GlimmerEggForge but saw it was another useless waste and to make complaining players happy, we now can make easter eggs all year!?

No.. I won't be getting the BeastbaneDisplay for 400gems even if 75gems are refunded. This time I say the situation has exaggerated and not worthwhile.

I'm sorry CS.. from this side of the game, seems like the Trolls have taken over the headquarters there. Many things have changed and I personally feel sad about this greed, sly ways and overpricing resources to gain real $$. I do believe we must enjoy to spend.

as Zelda said.. "was not like that before"

Having read most if this thread I have yet to see any positives to buying the beastbane has anyone purchased it if so what are the drops? Standard sword, shield and staff tokens or golden troll tokens?

EDIT:
TAKEN FROM POST #1

Beastbane Display
Info: A display showcasing Beastbane's fearsome majesty! Always drops Troll, Staff, or Sword Tokens.
Drops: Troll Token, Staff Token, Sword Token
Timer: 1320 minutes // 22 hours
Speed-up: 36 gems

So we have troll tokens dropping but when staff and sword token hit limit cap of 99 cannot trade using trade wagon until monster hunt starts so what is the use?

WOW!!! Over 100 posts, many "not positive" and not one response from S8 or anyone to defend them. Even though I like the game, when my gems are gone, I think this game will either be deleted or only looked at infrequently. I have plenty of better ways I could be spending my time, but right now, the lack of a response is disturbing. I feel like S8 only wants my money and does not care about the gaming experience.

Can someone from S8 please reply to this thread? I'm going to start my stopwatch (just like you are doing to us now) .... if there is no response in a ridiculously short, undefined, period of time, then this game and all S8 games will be deleted from my tablet. S8 - now is your chance to speak up and calm down your kingdoms! Don't be the Baron!

....but giving me 3 days to get a 75-gem rebate on a 400-gem item without ANY clarity on some of the questions that I and others have posed here about it is akin to a car dealer giving me 3 days to get a $7500 rebate on a $40k car without telling me if it has a warranty, comes equipped, or if it will even start when I turn the key, LOL!

Ha! Work time is done, I come to check on a S8 response, pages after pages, nada. OK, so I guess I'll wait another day on info. No info, no gems.

See though, cooking was really important when adventures always returned gems. Now that they have changed that, what's the point for long time players? The fairy special boxes don't drop any more, at least I have not seen anybody on the forum confirm that they still could drop for the last year... And from all other stuff, we've got plenty. Again, I'm speaking out of a year++ gamer's point of view.

If S8 are smart, they would add new items for Troll Tokens. Are they? Which circles back to: no info, no gems, that's just me.

But this Beastbane thing is too expensive, even if S8 felt like giving us info to justify buying it.

There may or may not be new surprises in the Trade Wagon that require Tokens in the upcoming event. If you want an advantage on these, you should get the Beastbane Display so you get more Tokens.

Thinking of not getting this, but a little on the fence.

Did upgrading the arena with 25 gold nuggets actually result in getting more beasts to get more tokens? It's only 2 collections a day but a few strikes for each beast. This new piece of art is a 22 hour collection. Description is singular - token. So 1 token a day????????

Any input on upgrading the arena is greatly appreciated. Hoping not off topic as is pertains to "beasts" "tokens" = "cooking camp". I hope anyways.

I think you have to have your trade wagon out to get the tokens to drop from the lucky trade.


I got a gold token yesterday from the Lucky Trade and I don't have my trade wagon out. I once got 30 energy and twice got 5 energy, but I haven't had much luck until the gold token dropped and I don't need it anyway because I have the camp kitchen. I think that there are supposed to be valuable drops, but as with many items such as burning embers, they are rare. But I don't believe the drops from the Lucky Trade depend on placing any other items in our kingdoms. I recently got two burning embers in less than a week from other sources of course, so no matter how rare any item is, some people get them sometime, but a few of us do get them, so don't give up.

Any time I see something like this from S8, I know this will be another useless item. I am not buying it. I finally learned how to play this game, and I am doing just fine without buying anything that is a sale disguised as part of the story. I used to jump in and buy everything, but not once have I been better off by buying any item that is presented like this. Plus, S8 has all but 24 of my gems thanks to the gem traps and will no doubt get those too. I used to gladly spend money to play this game but I am done losing my money to gem traps and sales disguised as goals. I don't object to spending money to play the game, but when it is taken from me by built in traps and trickery, then I get no value for my money and I won't be spending any more for non-animated decor that gives nothing of guaranteed value within my kingdom.

Should I be looking somewhere other than the trade wagon?

The wagon only shows all the trades when the monster hunt is progress. It's currently not in progress, which is why you aren't seeing anything in your wagon. When the hunt starts up again--possibly today--they'll be there, don't worry.

After looking back to refresh my memory, we should have a level 5 jousting arena that should spawn monsters, thus giving tokens and we built Lorelei fountain that should drop tokens during hunts. I think I will use those resources for the next hunt. I don't see a need for the 400 gem purchase. We'll see!

Sorry If I missed it, but except for SW's post, is there any reason to buy this if you already have the camp kitchen and plenty of extra tokens? Or is there really any reason to spend 400 gems on it at all except that S8 put it up there for us to waste money on something new because they aren't making money enough with the new gem traps?

As of right now I see it as a waste of 400 gems. My opinion.

Remember frnds and nbrs.. buying a special building offered (I'm referring to the BeastbaneDisplay or others of this type) is simply a personal choice.. greatly depending also if it can be afforded.
Your game will be more challenging if you don't have the 'special' building.. but not impossible to conclude whatever quests.

With time all players will reach the goal. Some immediately.. those who have more time to spend on the game, quickly.. those with less time, later.. only those with no time.. will miss out.

We reach as even timed goals have to be in the possibility of obtaining them. It just depends on your personal lifestyle of how you can play.. on what you decide.

Does the beast bane drop tokens when it's not monster hunting season? How long is the timer? Are you happy with it? Thanks

Still no answer to whether it will be worthwhile when the monster hunts are in an off-season. Need an answer to whether trades can be made at any time? What's the point if we max a token or all of them and can't do trades? Most likely will still end up being useless most of the time...this is s8 after all, they do not have our gameplay experience in the forefront only lining their own pockets - don't forget that when making future decisions to spend real money! I say, it's just another TRAP. Save your money folks for your real life bills. They didn't provide enough info while that goal/purchase timer keeps ticking away.... They won't learn until they see a drop in their "economy" numbers. The folks on page 8 & 9 of this post made me LOL, heading over to Glassdoor now to check out the s8 executives hahaha!

Yes, with the chance to get the building that will let you craft the new night-sky Alicorn and dragon, the Beastbane thingie now makes sense.

22 hours and it says it drops all the tokens but nothing about dropping a gold token. Not sure how many tokens it drops and if it drops year round or only during monster hunt. Hmmmmm. What to do?

I too want to know, WILL WE BE ABLE TO DO TRADES OUT OF SEASON?

If the answer is yes, I will buy this. But I am waiting for the answer from S8 directly.

Thinking of not getting this, but a little on the fence.

Did upgrading the arena with 25 gold nuggets actually result in getting more beasts to get more tokens? It's only 2 collections a day but a few strikes for each beast. This new piece of art is a 22 hour collection. Description is singular - token. So 1 token a day????????

Any input on upgrading the arena is greatly appreciated. Hoping not off topic as is pertains to "beasts" "tokens" = "cooking camp". I hope anyways.

I posted this yesterday I think. Any response on upgrading arena benefit?

You are guaranteed a beast every 12 hours, I usually get a skunk which helps with the daily trades. I wouldn't necessarily upgrade the arena unless you have 10 to 15 extra gold nuggets. If that's the case then yes upgrade it als will drop swords ans armor as well.

It really depends on your resources and where your at in the game.

Thanks. Still not sure but might upgrade. I have the nuggets; just hoarding them. Lol. Because you never know what S8 wants next. So thinking about this *bane thing now. But it's a lot of gems!

Hey everyone!

Wanted to chime in with a couple answers for you all.

*Yes, the Beastbane Display will continue its normal drops outside of Monster Hunt seasons :)
*No, the silver token trades will not remain active outside of Monster Hunt seasons. However, summoning animals through the Mythic Research Center will require Sword or Staff Tokens, and those will be available to you at all times.

Hope that helps, and that you all have fun with this season of the Monster Hunt :)

So basically, we can collect from it until we max out on sword, staff and shield tokens, but we can't make more gold tokens until the next hunting season. So the mythic building will only be useful during hunts as well, unless we purchase gold tokens with gems.

I did cave in and purchase the beastbane display, after getting the mythic research center. Oddly enough, I'm not regretting it as much as I still regret the egg only forge. I'm a little disappointed, but at least this way I can collect off season and be be ready to trade for gold tokens as soon as hunting season opens.

Thank you S8 for allowing those of us without the love shack to craft alicorns! And those without burning embers to craft dragons!

Beastline Display seems useful - if rumors are true it will still drop outside of hunting season staffs and swords and troll tokens - and if we max out- we can graft allicorns and dragons in this new building. Anyway it will greatly help us.

I've often wondered about those that don't use the forum. Do they often just assume they need to buy these things to progress in the game? I'm sure that must happen.

It does! Until I learned about the forums, I bought a lot of things.

The alicorns and dragons require 5 and 3 gold troll tokens each to craft, in addition to the sword and staff tokens plus rope and jewels. I personally have only 4 gold tokens left after trading for the locket, the mythic research building and starting an alicorn. So, I won't be able to craft those off season, unless I manage to collect a bunch of gold tokens during hunting season.

UNLESS, the display drops gold tokens year round?

I see that the info-graphic in post one says 'troll tokens', but I haven't seen anyone confirming a drop of gold troll tokens from the beastbane display. It does not list shield tokens, but I have seen confirmation that it drops those. (Mine still has a few hours before my first collection, so I have no personal experience yet.) It will be extremely useful if it does indeed drop gold troll tokens!

It seems that it WILL DROP ALL THE TIME- EVEN OUTSIDE THE SEASON - it will give us supply for those craft i

I don't think I am explaining myself or my question very well.

I am aware that the beastbane display will drop tokens all the time and not only during the hunts. I saw sourp4atch's post stating that as well. Both sourp4tch and page one say 'troll tokens', but I'm not willing to assume that means gold tokens at this point.
I have also freely admitted that I think it will be useful, just that it may be of limited usefulness in my case. So I am not posting a complaint, but an observation and a question.

I am questioning whether or not the display will drop GOLD tokens. As I stated, I have seen reports of shield tokens dropping and those are NOT listed by sourp4tch or in post one. But I haven't seen any reports of anyone getting a gold troll token. It is possible that I could have missed the post if anyone did get one, although I did read the entire thread. (And the event thread too.)

Can anyone confirm recieving a gold troll token as a drop from the beastbane display?

14 minutes to purchase before gem rebate ends! Still no definitive answer about gold tokens. Unless "troll token" is the same as Gold token. If it does drop gold tokens and its an ultra rare drop like horns and wings I think I'll pass. My advice is if you like to get items quickly then make the plunge and buy it. It sounds like it helps a little.

For me, I have a slow patient game style. Except during timed events. Lol. So I'm passing on this. Hopefully, no regrets later.

In the future, I hope S8 can post things like this in more detail. It's a 400 gem purchase! Not 40 gems.

Troll tokens ARE the gold ones- others are called "staff" "Shield" and Sword - so yes- gold token means this golden one we need. I have the display - and it will drop first time in few hours- I will confirm it if I get gold one.

IF it drops shield and staff tokens and Gold troll tokens ( it should- but not sure yet) and you have traded for mystery research center- then I assume that you could craft allicorns and dragons outside of the event- yes, you don't have option to do trade wagon trades - but those items are used to craft allicorns and dragons- so they should be worth it. If it also drops golden troll tokens outside of the event- you could collect needed gold tokens for next season.

I did get one from the lucky workshop today, just need one more for another alicorn. :)

In post 2 of the Monster Hunt thread will be all of the information about the Display including all known drops etc.

You can either leave me a visitor message / send a PM or post in monster hunt thread if you have any questions about the Display. I read *everything*! :)

thanks! :)
