Listen to the voices from the past! Often, we can find wisdom in their words. Can we derive any insight from our memories? Knowing what happened before may help us approach the future wisely! Especially in these strange times, caution may be of great benefit to maintaining a peaceful kingdom. Tomorrow takes us ever closer to our elusive destinies!

[==This season requires Level 22+, and is live from 4/07 to 4/18 @ 4pm.==]

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

From S8 15 April

Hey everyone!

We were experiencing a lot of errors as a result of fixing how we were dropping decos from the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Hunter Trades. We'd made the fix to clean up the visual experience of getting decos from those trades, however that version doesn't handle rewarding more than 1 deco very well. Thus, we've reverted the change on the Bronze and Silver Hunter Trades - the Gold Hunter Trade should be fine, since it only ever drops 1 deco at a time.

This means you'll see a giant thumbnail image burst out of your Trade Wagon if you get a path, wall, or hedge from the Bronze or Silver Hunter Trades ^^;;; But, you'll get the proper number of decos :)

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of Season 5!


I created a new thread for the Legendary Trap so that we can gather info. Please post in this thread if you buy one:

Q: Will there be more Monster Hunts?
A: Yes!




Trade Wagon crafts



* Cooking Camp - 99 gold tokens
* Princess Lorelei's Fountain - 2 Blue Sapphires which are 10 gold tokens each to purchase. The Fountain drops gold tokens only during monster hunts.
* Cabbage Hut - 70 gold tokens
* Ornate Locket - 5 gold tokens
* Mythic Research Center - 70 gold tokens


Q: Will these crafts (as listed below) be available in the Trade Wagon after the season finishes?
A: Yes!

Q: Will the token trades will be available out of season or will the trade wagon be emptied of everything once event over?

Q: Will the Beastbane Display will drop items out of season?
A: The drops are the same both in and out of Monster Hunt seasons.

Q: What Tokens drop from the Beastbane Display?
A: Gold tokens, staff tokens and sword tokens will drop in and out of season. Shield tokens are not a drop from the Display.

Q: Will the Ornate Locket trade stay in the trade wagon and in our quest book after the event?
A: Yes. It will stay in your goal book until you have purchased the locket with tokens.




The Cabbage Hut (iOS only)



[updated 15 April]

The Cabbage Hut is available in the market for 450 gems. Limit of 1 for gems.

Q: How can I get the Cabbage Hut:
A: You can purchase 1 in the market for 450 gems and you can get another one through the trade wagon.

A: Yes, you can get a cabbage hut through the trade wagon or in the market for gems.

Q: Do I have to purchase the one in the market first?

Legendary Trap


Q: How much are they?
A: 25 gems each. They take 1 chop and spawn a random beast (Blue Dire Boar or Purple Glimmer Golem).

Q: Will the Legendary Trap will drop tokens out of season?
A: No. Tokens will only drop in Monster Hunt seasons.

Q: Will the Legendary Trap spawn monsters in and out of season?
A: Yes, but you will not get tokens out of seasons. You do have a chance of a gold troll token in and out of season.

I'm sure she does for some and it's ransom. I can say I've collected quite a bit since last season with an exception of being out sick playing and I have yet to get a single gold coin from her. Oh well luck was not on my side last season but maybe it will be this one so we can't give up especially during these quests. Good luck to you!

For those who don't have the beast statues from the first hunt out yet, you might want to place them, the timers are back. If they have been out and aren't working, store them and then place them again.

another bad trick from TL..
no energy crate for the daily hunt but only tokens..
not even one gold troll token as a reward...

makes it less fun to defeat those monsters!

also, i might be the only one who has only lucky token, broze, silver and gold trade in the trade wagon?
force close did not repair this for me.. not on android and not on ios..

The new trades will appear after you do 1 of any trade in the Trade Wagon. This is so that players who are hitting Monster Hunts for the first time aren't bombarded by a dozen quests and dialogues all at once!

Please let me know if doing any trade doesn't work, and I'll look into it :)

Hope you all enjoy this season!

Same here with gold token from the fountain but collecting from the jousting arena didn't trigger anything! Another boo!!!

And now crafting the locket.
What do you mean, crafting the locket? Thanks.

Also, collecting from my level 5 jousting arena did trigger a fangbeast.

another bad trick from TL..
no energy crate for the daily hunt but only tokens..
not even one gold troll token as a reward...

makes it less fun to defeat those monsters!

also, i might be the only one who has only lucky token, broze, silver and gold trade in the trade wagon?
force close did not repair this for me.. not on android and not on ios..

re-install solved those issues for me!

We can craft an alicorn in the new building. Looking for a confirmation that it drops 40 energy and not just the lesser energy like the glimmer ali's. ***new Ali's reportedly give 40 energy! Woo Hoo!

Is crafting the locket necessary for anything besides getting a handshake and clearing the goal from the book? Seems like a trap?
Also just throwing in an obligatory whine & big groan for s8 taking the energy crates away. I've reached the point of no surprise from them however, I suppose all the new prizes are supposed to distract us from that economic maneuver.

Can we make more than one dragon and alicorn in the mythic research center? Mine is crafting right now! Still debating about buying beastbane. But I think S8 will win once again. I really want to craft some mythic animals. And maybe even get the cooking camp someday.

Thanks. But after reading some other threads, I think I will wait on that goal though since there isn't a timer.. Not feeling up to handing over tokens for a mysterious quest that may or may not get me ahead. Still a little bitter about wasting troll tokens in previous traps when the hunts first started. The mythic center seems a more interesting goal than a handshake lol.

I passed on the cooking camp to get the locket and mythic research center and I caved in and bought the beastbane display, since I'll need more troll tokens to craft those magnificent creatures. Lol

Ps. Lorelei's fountain just dropped a troll token. It's not every time, but I'll take what I can get. Now if the lucky workshop would only live up to its name. :rolleyes:

Ps 2. I'm ALMOST over my annoyance at the useless forge. I do still wish I had those gems back though. :(
Holding out a glimmer(egg) of hope that the eggs will eventually be useful for something like a trade. A set of eggs for a gold troll token perhaps? :p

And thanks too for those of you who did the earlier reminders about putting the statues out - I'd completely forgotten about this.

Troll tokens do drop during hunt seasons. It refreshes every 5 hours and I'd say drop rate for the gold tokens is about 25%. It's worth to keep collecting in my opinion. Good luck!

With all due respect, you can't have collected from it more than 3 or (maybe) 4 times. I get a gold troll token from the fountain about every third collection--sometimes it takes more, sometimes less. I have found the fountain very useful, and I'm glad to have it!

It's unlikely anyone will get the new Mythic Research Center in one monster hunt. I have a neighbor who's been playing from almost the start, and she doesn't have the Cooking Camp yet. The Research center is a long-term reward; I don't expect to get it this monster season (my second). It gives, essentially, unlimited alicorns and dragons, so it makes perfect sense for it to be difficult to earn.

I had the Lorelei fountain the minute it came out - I won the sapphire in the November challenge. So this is the second challenge I've had that fountain through. I never got a single troll token off it through the last challenge, either. It's useless to me. I'll write if one actually shows up. But I wouldn't waste my energy getting one.

I've been playing for awhile now and I've only got 43 tokens so even if you've been playing awhile I doubt you'll get the Mythic Research Center. I didn't win the tokens in the Christmas challenge, either - I don't have much luck with tokens. But I'm glad they put it out and for only 70 tokens - that's much more practical.

no problemo! :):):) yes, it's most likely a negative, but, I'll add a question about the energy crates and check on that too. :) It's fun writing up event info for everyone and I know it makes a huge difference. I figures since I'd seen a few posts and I didn't get any energy crate either for my purple golem that it looked like another change to this season.

Hi guys!
Ive been playing a while but most likely forever ago, and came back right around after valentines day if I remember right.
Im lvl 33 now.
I had a trade wagon (had no clue wth it was for, I stored it forever) now that this event is on, i understand and I placed it back in my castle.

Now, Im trying to understand this right.
The Lorelei fountain quest has been sitting in my quest log forever, now, things are starting to make sense.

Now, the only way I can obtain gold coins is doing the Golden Trade correct?

Last night I gave in and purchased the 4.99 special for 250 energy. Killed my glimmer goblin (clicked my horses) and the blue boar (dead tree spawn) and im working on killing 5 skunkupines for the Notive Challenge.
For some reason now I cant for the life of me make a skunkupine spawn!! I planted so much wheat (over 50) and collected all and im stuck on 3/5 for that Novice goal. is there anything im doing wrong?

This is pretty much my 1st time doing this event, its so confusing to me.
What can I do to get gold coins faster?

There is a 24 hour timer on the trades.

Complete at least one trade- then the new items will appear on waggon. I also got problem with horses - but tried second one and it worked. ( Sir Daisy didn't but the simple horse worked. Dead tree also worked on second try. ( If it doesn't close this app and try to reopen the game.)

I tried the horses I had on the board, and none spawned the golem. Looking on the front page here, it says the gem horses won't work (Sir Daisy is considered a gem purchase, who knew?). So now I have a brown coin horse out to lure the glimmer golems. ;)

Yesterday I had 90 gold tokens. Spent 5 on the locket, 70 on the RC and it looks like I'll need to spend some for the new animals. I'd spend anything for another Ali & Dragon so I don't mind but I really hope that the monster hunts keep coming so I can someday get the Cooking Camp. Even though it will probably be boring, I am just so dead set on getting it! :)

So OUTSIDE the slayer events, if i so much as walk by a chicken, sheep or cow i am hip deep in skunkupines and fangbeasts, yet DURING the event have harvested enough of those to complete TWO royal exchange food trades and nothing, not so much as a whisker.
This happened last slayer time, do they 'turn off' the monsters for these events?

Can someone plz share how you all managed to get so many gold coins? I've been doing this religiously since it started and I've just hit 69 gold coins! Now I need 70 for the building and 5 for the locket that's not adding for the cooking camp! Now we don't get energy crates from fighting which only makes this harder! Come on give us a break, this is becoming a nightmare and not very enjoyable as we always seem to be under pressure 😔

I don't know of any tricks if there are any. With every thing basically on a 22-24 hour rotation it seems that there is just so much a person can do- without spending gems to speed up which I do not do I just basically depleted my gold so will see how it progresses from there. I know I basically just concentrate on the gold trade.

Just noticed I used the word basically a lot. I better wake up a little more!!!!

I had been patiently saving for the cooking camp although I really didn't know what I would use a 4th kitchen for. After reading the thread, I traded in my hoarded stash and started crafting my Mythic Research Center. Now to start collecting enough gold tokens to craft the glimmer alicorn and glimmer dragon.

They're making the game harder for people who seldom/never make purchases. In other words, S8 is rewarding the players who support them monetarily, just like every other business.

30000 Princess Lorelei's Fountain - it doesn't always drop troll tolkens, but during hunting season it occasionally
may drop some.

Before if u didn't completely defeat a beasts whether it was the dire or the purple g u could wait until time was up. The goal in the book would stay open as long as u did not press finish even though time expired so u could keep respawning the same beasts over and over through out the monster hunt. U would loose out on the energy crates though. But if the goal now just expires and goes away without having to press finish this option is no longer available. :/

But last night I still needed 3 beasts to complete the novice challenge. This morning the challenge was still there and active, and I managed to trigger 3 fangbeasts, one from the jousting arena, and two from quick-collecting eggs. The goal then finished and I got the coins. (The beasts are definitely aware that it's hunting season! They are all in hiding.)

To answer the question of when the new daily challenges appear... For me it's usually roughly 24 hours after I opened the first one. So I'm expecting them at around 4 pm S8 time (pacific? I think) or about 6 pm central time

I had the Lorelei fountain the minute it came out - I won the sapphire in the November challenge. So this is the second challenge I've had that fountain through. I never got a single troll token off it through the last challenge, either. It's useless to me. I'll write if one actually shows up. But I wouldn't waste my energy getting one.

I've been playing for awhile now and I've only got 43 tokens so even if you've been playing awhile I doubt you'll get the Mythic Research Center. I didn't win the tokens in the Christmas challenge, either - I don't have much luck with tokens. But I'm glad they put it out and for only 70 tokens - that's much more practical.

I get tokens off it every second or third collection..

Doing a little bit of speculating on what may unfold regarding monster hunting seasons and the trade wagon:
I wonder if this may be the last monster hunting season or that it may be winding down soon, as the the new Breastbane display offers drops of tokens, even when monster season stops. This causes me to think about the possibility that the trade wagon may add other items for trade, as we've just seen the addition of the mythic research center. Any ideas?

And my thanks to the mods and players who share tips and advice regarding the quests! Thanks!

Fangbeasts seem to love my glimmerchicks! They also spawn from the Glimmeregg Bunny.

Last season, I planted cocoa and made loads of chocolate to make sundaes to make sweet feasts. That spawned quite a few dire boars. I'm still working on my last expansion spot and continually do the dairy/egg trade, so I tend to get quite a few fangies from my cows and chickens.

Don't forget to collect from the L5 arena daily as well. Can help towards the daily novice goal.

They always say they don't change anything, but during "regular life" in my kingdom, I actually hope for the trader days again just to quit having so many monsters. And sure enough, right now I can collect all kinds of stuff around the kingdom without monsters interrupting. Hmmmmm...

My question is whether the opportunity to build the research centre will remain after the monster hunt. I'm a mere android user, too new to have the beast statues, so my chances of getting 70 gold coins in 10 days is next to nil. I didn't even manage the fountain last hunt, which was only 20. Even using all my energy for monsters I doubt I can earn enough. The beast bane thing drops a handful of tokens daily, which isn't going to make enough difference to get me the research centre.

So if the centre can only be built before the end of the hunt, the 400 gem beast bane becomes useless.

Does anyone know? Or have any suggestions?

I've added this to my report. Hopefully one of the players who have this building can help you find out which one it is. Check your in-game profile screen, the tab on the same screen as your wall. What counts do you have?

here's the limits:
You can have 43 Royal buildings.
You can have 40 Town buildings.
you can have up to 2 resource buildings/items. - given it's a crafting building, it's unlikely it's going to be one of these...

I'm sad that the monster rate is so controlled. Once I reach a goal, the monsters dry up. Activities that spawn lots of monsters during normal play, now, produce nothing. It's hard enough, as a lower level player, to come up with the energy, and then to make it through the slow process of turning lesser tokens into troll tokens, but if the monsters are being rationed--as it really seems-- there is no way I'm going to accomplish the tantalizing prizes. Makes a player grumpy.

It does seem the monster rate is controlled - for the first time ever I have reaped 40 strawberry plots without being bothered by a single beast . �� in 3 years of playing that has never happened !!

I am a player willing to spend a few ?'s a week - I feel it's only fair to pay something to recompense for the enjoyment of playing the game I get and to ensure S8 are wiling to continue weekly updates.

However, perhaps it's going a bit far at the moment and we are being bombarded with ways for us to spend real money and I Know not everybody is in the position to do this.... And then change the drop rates.

S8 - please don't make it harder to reach goals ( change drop/appearance rates) ... We will continue to play .... Just don't take advantage of us ��

I've seen many speculate on the forum that S8 changes drop/spawn rates, but it's just the way statistics work. Flip a coin 10 times, and you may get heads eight times, but flip that same coin 1000 times, and you will roughly get half heads and half tails; as an example, I said yesterday that I get a troll token about every third collection of my Lorelei's fountain. I haven't gotten one since. I'm certain the rate hasn't changed, but (apparently) my luck did.

I spend a set amount on the game when I get paid, thinking of it like a subscription. This way, my gems build up. I will only spend gems on an item if it will continue to be useful for as long as I play the game, but that's just me. It is important to support the game, but it's easy to overspend too. I agree that there have been a lot of gem-only purchases lately, but the core game can still be played without them. There's no reason to expect game extras to be free.

As a software programmer married to a mobile app developer (he builds boring news and magazine apps, lol), I thank you for recognizing there are people whose livelihood depend on all of us occasionally sending a little love their way.

And as a software developer, going thru the monster hunts since they were introduced and a X times daily player for a year++, I share my knowledge with u: the monster spawn rate changes, meaning, is reduced during monster hunts. And thinking of it as a pro, it makes sense...

Really stupid question, as I understand it these purple Glimmer Alicorns drop 40 energy/22 hours, will this continue after thr hunt? These arent temporary energy givers?

This is an excellent question. Does anyone know the answer?

Unless you specifically program for Storm8—and have worked on monster hunt events—this is nothing more than speculation. I have not seen a difference (speculation also), but there's no way of knowing for sure. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, since S8 has said the rate doesn't change. However, I will not argue this point farther. If you think your personal experience trumps all, there's nothing I could say that would change your mind anyway.

I think it was actually a former staff member of TEAMLAVA who said that; I haven't seen a staff member say that since it changed to STORM8.

Yay! I got a wedding tower from the gold trade ... Hoping for more of those! :)

I went through a few pages, I can't go through all to find the answer, so sorry if this is repetitive. Once the individual monster quest is complete, do the monsters not spawn anymore? This is my first hunt, and first time seeing the Glimmer Golem and Dire Boar. I finished the Dire Boar one and no more are spawning when I chop dead trees.

You get 1 glimmer golem, 1 blue dire boar and 1 skunkupine/tiger (what's it called? Haha!) quest per 24h. A couple of days.

Are you on android? I'm on iOS so I don't know how the quests work for android, but for iOS we can only fight one each of the blue boar and glimmer golem per day, each day of the hunt. If these quests are the equivalent of our dailies, I'd guess that once you complete the quests, you won't be able to spawn more of those special monsters.

This is not first hunting seasons- it is like 5th? It took me 4 seasons to collect 70 gold tokens - ( I missed the first one since phone was broken) - usually I get abou5 10- 15 gold tokens per season. And then we just have to hope for next one.

Those sword tokens prises are frustrating. I'm always maxed on those. I hoped the blue boar and purple golem will make the count more ios-like, but no, I'm still almost always maxed

i don't bother with those purple golems anymore,
collect from my horses is another monster is out.
the reward for defeating monsters are so disappointing now that it's almost not worth the energy

Ah, thank you. So I can never hope to get the research centre, unless it's available after, nor the animals it crafts. I will go back to the regular goals I was pursuing. I might manage to make the fountain this time.

Thank you, Anissada. I was afraid of that. I hope they bring it back for the next hunt, I don't think I'll be able to get it this time. I'm 16 gold coins shy of 70 and they are getting harder and harder to come by. Good luck to everyone still trying!

I guess you just have to expect not to get anything unless you play for years and slowly save up your troll tokens.

Storm8's way of trying to make you invest a lot of time/work so that you don't feel you can just leave.

I've killed all the golems and blue dire wolves (android)--looks like my event is over, except for trying to scratch up a few novice fights--which seem to have magically evaporated, lest one make too much progress.

Getting to know you, Storm8, getting to know all about you.

Just went up a quantum in indifference to the game.

If that's true, I feel triple ripped for having bought the beast bane display (which is dropping squat). I'm fairly new to the game, and foolishly purchased a glimmeregg forge, too. Hopefully I've learned my lesson. Supporting a game fairly is one thing, being reamed is another.

This is the first season the research center has been available, so I can't say for sure...but IF it works like the cooking camp it stays in the troll traders wagon. Unfortunately, collecting the tokens by fighting monsters and trading them for gold tokens is only available during the hunting seasons.

Exception ** For those who purchase the beastbane display....the info says it drops tokens year round, but the trades are still only available during hunting season.

Squeeeeal!!! Crafting my first gorgeous purple Ali in the research center! So excited!!! All that hard work throughout the hunting seasons (only missed the first one) is finally paying off! :D

First drop from the Beastbane display was 2 staff tokens.

I got a wedding tower from my latest golden trade but it's surprisingly small - smaller than a jeweled egg!

So conceivably what a person has to gain with the bane is that they can start out next monster hunt with 120 each (the max allowed in inventory) of the silver tokens which would equal about 5 gold token trades right at the beginning of the hunt. That's the way it look to me anyway. Feel free to correct this if this wrong. I do not want to mislead anyone here. That could be less because I think you need 50 of one of the silver token to make a gold token trade. But it would still be a good head start.

And it can also drop golden troll tokens so you can get those in between hunting seasons too.

That's how I looked at it too. I did go ahead and buy it, because the idea of getting a head start on tokens and the chance at a few gold ones between hunts appealed to me.
Having said that....I am realizing it will be slow going. My first two collections were 2 staff tokens each. :(

I'm still excited about it overall though. I've put the cooking camp on indefinite hold. I had enough tokens saved for the Mythic Research Center, for me that was a better choice...my kitchens are often idle these days anyway.

Wow! Lots to take in!

I've an old game on iOS which I'm trying to figure out the daily challenges (unsuccessfully so far) had the traders wagon and no sapphires for the fountain even though I think I was a fairly committed player when playing that. I stopped for a while (was unwell) and then reinstalled and am playing again now.

Got a new game on android which seems to be going better, the locket seems to fit in with the long-term storyline (do they employ writers for this as I'd love to do something like this), so don't know whether to get the locket, fountain (have 1 sapphire from last season) or mythic building.

Thoughts?

Typical. Normally I can't do anything in game without being swarmed by stupid boars. Going through my harvest patch of 32 strawberry patches, I generally run into 4-6 boars. However now that I need them for monster hunt? Nothing, no monsters anywhere. I get through all my harvest with zero encounters. It's infuriating. The only monsters I can ever get are the ones from the daily quests and the jousting arena.

And my Loreli fountain never drops coins. >( Why does it hate me so

04-09-16, 09:40 PM
Seishy:

Try collecting from cows and chickens for fang beasts. And strawberries for dire boar after you finish the daily goals if on iOS. Added benefit is the token drops are better than the skunks.

But I've had the same problem as you. 25 energy or more to get one monster and sometimes none. We all feel your pain. Sorry. Another thing that helps or just pure luck. After I smash a beast, I exit the game and usually get another one pretty quickly after going back to gameplay. I'm close to 70 gold tokens now. So it's still going to take forever to get all the new goodies.

Hey everyone!

Glad to see folks excited about the Mythic Research Center and enjoying Season 5 :D

I saw a few people asking these things, so wanted to clear it up:

*The Mythic Research Center is a new long-term goal, meaning it will be around past the current season :) As with the Cooking Camp, the current plan is for it to remain active both in and out of seasons. The animal summoning crafts inside it also remain active outside of Monster Hunt seasons :)

*The Ornate Locket, as it ties in to the main story, is also not bound to Monster Hunts.

Hope you all have fun with the rest of the hunt! Good luck with your trades :D
