Storybook Event: Essence Of The Forest
* Finish all Chapters of Essence Of The Forest to restore the Forest Tree and earn the Forest Stag!

** A huge thank you to dragongold1 for posting the future goal steps...
* Time zone converter (http://www.thetimezoneconverter.com): compare where you are with California
* [==Update requires app update to Version 1.5+, Level 15+, and will be available to start beginning 06/16. Once started, you will have 10 days to complete the event. The event will automatically start on 06/20.==]
* Note: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO START IMMEDIATELY... YOU CAN CHOSE TO START 'LATER'.

* This event is available on both platforms.
* For Android players, you must update to 1.5.0.4g as minimum version is 1.5.
* For iOS players, you must update to 1.5.2

How a Storybook Event works
1. It's not that you have one day to complete a chapter - it's that another chapter won't UNLOCK until the next day.
2. If you finish the chapter early, you have to wait for the remainder of the time to expire before the next chapter starts. You have to complete a chapter to begin the next chapter.
3. If you take longer than a day to complete a chapter then the next one will start sooner.
4. If you gem skip a chapter, the next one doesn't start sooner (you will wait even longer!).


ISSUES, BUGS and FIXES!
RESOLVED...17 June

I saw the forest workshop and bought it. Built it. Now It tells me to buy one. Doesn't recognize that I have it. Would buy another but can't find it. Help!
no, don't buy another one. I've already reported this... + DON'T buy a second sapling either - it has the same glitch. This is being investigated.

Thank you guys for your patience, this has been fixed. Please force close your game to continue on to the next task. If you are still stuck on this, please let me know.

Posted 20 June:

Ok, here we go:

[Feedback sent to Devs means it won't change for this event.]

1. Side Goals: confirmed no rewards and no need to do them if you don't want to. These side Goals are just to guide you through the event.
[Feedback sent to Dev's about no rewards]

2. The Forest Workshop and Racoons post event: The workshop will turn into a decoration after the event. The Forest Wood and Forest Raccoons are only for this event.

3. Can we keep the 2nd tree if we have one? Yes, you can keep the second tree.

4. 25 neighbour requests... I asked for an increase in the response rate.
[Feedback shared with Dev's] Update 6/22 - Changed this to 20 requests.[PikaSquirrel]

5. 40 trade tickets
[Feedback shared with Dev's] Update 6/23 - Changed CH9 Task 2 to accept any trade in Royal Exchange. Previously only accepted 'Royal Supply Crate' trade. So it no longer requires 40 Trade Tickets to complete this task.[PikaSquirrel]

Another update:
Chapter 9, Goal 2 now will work with ANY trades in the Royal Exchange. Instead of doing the 'Royal Supply Crate' trade4x, you can now do any trade 4x and you will complete this. Again thank you guys so much for all the feedback! I will update this in the first page.


UPDATE: Level 6 Forest Tree has been changed to a 1 hour timer. The timer for level 6 will return to a 22 hour timer after the event. Will update this info in the first page as well.

23 June: Stag image fixed! you must uninstall / reinstall the game though to see the new and improved Forest Stag. Thanks to SparklyOctopus!

Chapter 1: Old Thomas - Ivy seems to have stumbled upon an old forest whilst out on her walk. It appears to be dying, but she is hopeful that there is a chance we will be able to restore it. Young Ruler, venture out into the forest and see what you can find.

Chapter 1:
Goal 1 Visit Ivy's Hut 0/1 VISIT (skip 15http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135)
Goal 2 Go on Forest Adventure 0/1 GO | 5 strawberries, 1 longsword | Castle only, 30 minutes | speed up is 2http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135
Goal 3 Find 3 more forest seeds 0/3 FIND (you need to keep adventuring)



Chapter 2: Old Thomas - Ahh, Forest Seeds. I wonder if we would be able to sprout anything from these tiny vessels of life. Come by my house and we shall think of a plan.

Chapter 2:
Goal 1 Visit old Thomas' House 0/1 VISIT (skip 4http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135) Reward: 1 Fresh Soil
Goal 2 Grow the Forest Sapling 0/1 GO | Potion Shop 2 hours | 8 seeds, 10 water
Goal 3 Upgrade the Forest Sapling into the Forest Tree 0/1 GO| 10 seeds, 15 water



Chapter 3: Ivy - The Forest Sapling has started to bloom! It's going to take more than a little water to fully restore it, though. Let's build a Forest Workshop so we have plenty of space to work on what we'll need!

Chapter 3:
Goal 1 Look for Supplies (check the sawmill) 0/1 SEARCH (skip 8http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135) Reward: 1 Forest Straw
Goal 2 Build the Forest Workshop 0/1 GO Reward: 1 Forest Petal | 4 stone block, 4 wooden beam, 2 forest seeds
Goal 3 Find Forest Petals 0/4 GO (collect from iceland poppies) [they don't drop every collection]
Goal 4 Collect From Forest Tree Level 2 0/1 GO | 20 water, 14 forest seeds, 10 forest petals



Chapter 4: Ivy - Those seeds don't seem to be just ordinary old seeds -- I think they're full of magic! I wonder what kind of potion we can create from them. Can you collect some more Forest Seeds while I work out a recipe?

Chapter 4:
Goal 1 Go on Forest Adventure 0/2 GO (skip 50http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135) Reward: 1 Petal Potion
Goal 2 Make Petal Potions 0/1 GO | Forest Workshop 1 hour | 10 Forest Petal, 10 sap
Goal 3 Collect From Forest Tree Level 3 0/1 GO | 20 forest petals, 18 forest seeds, 3 petal potions, 25 water




All these trees take 5 waters to grow from sapling to tree
cost | tree name | no of chops | time between waters
300 Willow tree | 10 chops | 5 minutes
400 Elm tree | 8 chops | 3 minutes
400 Oak tree | 8 chops | 30 minutes
500 White birch tree | 10 chops | 10 minutes

700 Crab apple tree | 10 chops | 3 minutes
900 Yellow acer tree | 10 chops | 5 minutes
1000 Pine tree | 10 chops | 15 minutes

(White birch doesn't seem to work... Oak trees are excellent for me.)


Chapter 5: Old Thomas - I heard a rumor that you ran into Forest Monsters on your adventure, Young Ruler. These spirits can be dangerous, and may also be the cause of the forests troubles. There is a good chance that they may have followed you back to the Kingdom, we had better forge a sword for protection.

Chapter 5:
Goal 1 Read about the Forest Sword 0/1 READ (skip 4http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135) Reward: 1 Forest Wood

Goal 3 Slay Forest Raccoons 0/1 GO (skip 50http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135)
Goal 4 Find more Forest Spirits 0/4 GO (chop trees to more more Forest Raccoons. Forest Spirits drop from Raccoons.



Chapter 6: Old Thomas - Ivy was able to grow a few more plants from the Forest Seeds you have been finding. She delivered forest Thistle to me this morning. Maybe you can find some use for it?

Chapter 6:
Goal 1 Visit Old Thomas' House 0/1 GO (skip 4http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135) Reward: 1 Forest Thistle
Goal 2 Find Forest Extract from Forest Thistle 0/3 GO Reward: 1 Forest Essence
Goal 3 Craft forest essence 0/1 MAKE | Forest essence - 15 forest wood, 10 forest spirits, 7 forest extract
Note: Forest Thistle has a 3 hour timer. 3 gems to speed up. (You need to place the Forest Thistle you get from visiting Old Thomas in goal 1. If it doesn't appear in your inventory, then force close your game. The thistle drops Forest Extract..)




After completing Chapter 6, Goal 2 (Find Forest Extract from Forest Thistle 0/3), you get 1 Forest Essence as a reward. Since you also need to craft 1 more Forest Essence to complete Chapter 6 Goal 3, you will end up with 2 Forest Essences, as a result.
So, by completing today's Chapter 6, you will be covered for Chapters 7 and 8, in terms of Forest Essence!


Chapter 7: Perfect! You're here. check out this Forest Dahlia I grew from those seeds - it produces a very potent Forest Nectar. I'm sure any essence from the forest will help this tree grow, let's try it out!

Chapter 7:
Goal 1 Visit Ivy's Hut 0/1 GO (skip 15http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135) Reward: 1 Forest Dahlia

Goal 3 Collect From Forest Tree Level 4 0/1 GO | 30 water, 3 petal potions, 1 forest essence, 20 forest nectar
Notes:
* Forest Dahlia has 1 hour timer
* Thistles and Dahlias may have multi drops.



Chapter 8: Oh shucks! I had another flower I grew -- the Paradise Blooms. I know I put them around here somewhere. Could you help me look for them?

Chapter 8:
Goal 1 Look Around the Kingdom 0/1 SEARCH (skip 20http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135) [collect from a Market Place]
Goal 2 Visit Community Kingdoms 0/30 VISIT (skip 40http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135) Reward: 1 Bloom Petal
Goal 3 Collect From Forest Tree Level 5 0/1 GO | 40 water, 3 petal potion, 1 forest essence, 30 forest nectar



Chapter 9: Ah, I heard you've been looking for the Paradise Blooms Ivy has grown. Well, I may have an idea as to where they're at, but it's going to cost you!

Chapter 9:
Goal 1 Ask Neighbours for Forest Stones 0/20 ASK (skip 15http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135)
Goal 2 Trade with the Baron 0/4 [Complete ANY trade in the Royal Exchange] (skip 20http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135)

Notes: Goal 1 - You need to receive the 20 requests you sent out to complete this goal



Chapter 10: The Paradise Blooms you found are safe and sound in my hut. I think we can use the blooms from the flower to create Forest Magic. If we use that on the Forest Tree it should be back to its old self in no time!

Chapter 10:
Goal 1 Visit Ivy's Hut 0/1 VISIT (skip 15http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fantasy-story/images/d/d5/Gem20px.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width/12?cb=20140805013135) Reward: 1 Paradise Bloom

Part 1 visit Ivys hut
Part 2 go on forest adventure 30 mins I think 5 strawberries and a sword.
2 gems to speed it up in the keep.
Inside says expired in 9 days
Outside 10 so somewhere in between

Also I did get an option screen to start now or to start later. That was appreciated.

Got seeds from the keep that's it
Part 3 find 3 more seeds, they drop from the forest adventure. I got one on my first drop so I am assuming 3 more adventures.
Looks like we will need lots of strawberries.

2nd forest collection 1 seed.
3rd collection 2 seeds

I am on the 3am timer 10 hours til my next chapter

just got another quest
Essence of the forest part 1 collect 20 seeds.

Storm 8 if we are going to have to do a bunch of these adventures could you please add it to the barracks.

I lost the Soothing Balm out of my Potion Shop too. I have force closed several times but didn't help. No timer on the Track Checking goal but we can't finish without the Soothing Balm unless we pay 50 gems. Will they fix this so we can finish?

Spiritwind the quest Essence of the forest part 1 popped up in my quest book not sure when.

The first part is collect 20 seeds.

It seems to be different from the storybook quest which is located on the right side of my screen.

When I looked at it I had 4 seeds. If anything it started after my first collection from the keep.

Oh wow!

Force restarts didn't work for me on Android, I had to go and reinstall the game to get the update. But, by some miracle I also got a new story in my book for the Baron's tent - which we've never had. When did that happen for Android? How did I miss it? It didn't work perfectly (one of the cabbages vanished) but who would ever have thought it. And now while I now wait for another 10 hours to get to collect from Ivy's hut and start this quest properly I've got a couple of items in my book to get animals from the Baron too.

My little avatar is finding it all a bit challenging at the moment and she's on a go-slow at picking things up round the board - at one point I couldn't find her and thought she'd run off.

I was just having a bit of relaxation from the game after the naga and the colosseum stuff. Wasn't quite up to getting back into it so soon. I'm a bit sorry for everyone who doesn't read this forum - would have missed out on this one without finding out about it here.

Hi, I wonder if the date is correct for the automatic start on this event. A maximum delay of just 4 days? We are about to go on vacation to a very remote place without internet and I won't be able to do this now. But if it auto starts this quickly, I will miss it either way. I thought events before had more leeway in the start time, but I could be wrong on that. I usually start right away :). Thank you.

Do we know if the forest adventure is the only place to get forest seeds? Does the forest tree drop them or do we get them as a reward for the side goals? I only ask because I counted up needing 52 seeds for just the first 4 days...that's a lot of longswords and strawberries. At a drop rate of 1 or 2 an adventure, that's somewhere between 26-52 longswords and 130-260 strawberries needed for days 1-4. Any additional info on drop rate from adventure and other sources of forest seeds from anyone pushing ahead would be appreciated.

Hello All. I must admit I am a bit confused. I have not started the event on purpose - I am traveling so I will only start when I am back home. Despite this a new quest came up in my goal book. It requires me to do the Forrest adventure 20 times. I am currently doing this and I have also bought and competed the workshop. I see the issue with the workshop has been reported but is the 20 adventures another goal separate from the event? My goal book says I have 15 days to compete. Anyone else in this situation?

My Kingdom suddenly got busy. I was quietly plodding on with the Griselda line, getting parts for the dark sword and thinking that the baron's birthday was all that was left for the time being. Then Bam! I got the android update with the baron's tent, plus 3 timed goals (kitty, puppy and cabbage Hut) which I shall have to ignore. Then I hit level 40 kicking off the wedding thread - now trying to at least build the carriage as I hate building sites on my board, and now this!

Aaargh!

Do I read correctly that we need to do the adventure dozens and dozens of times? (using swords and strawberries) That's going to put a spanner in everything. Or will there be other sources of seeds as we get further in? On most timed goals the drops of special items increase - the coliseum was dropping extra parts fairly quickly.

I do so want the green stag. He's beautiful.

So far I'm on part 2 the seeds only come from the adventure which will take a few dozen times. If you want the stag I suggest that is what you work on. This is a timed event. You have 10 days to complete. You get 3 small quest every day for 10 days. If you complete them all you'll then get the stag. Yes it uses a lot of swords and strawberries.

The cabbage hut cost gems, just less gems than in the market. You can get the cabbage hut through the Marc during monster hunting season.

The timer has always been like this frustrating I know. I have figured out you get 24 hours a day to complete each section. So you are some where in between 8 and 9 days depending on when your new quest starts, if you completed the first part.

Can the descriptors on the tasks be a little more precise? It says grow your tree. I thought I had to water it every hour until it grew up, like a regular tree. I kept speeding it up, and wasted 16 gems before I realized what they meant was to UPGRADE the tree. Kind of sloppy, S8.

What (if anything) was the reward for essence of the forest part 1? I got a reward screen after collecting the 20th seed, but I didn't get any reward for completing it. I imagine if someone uses gems to skip it, they will be very unhappy with recieving no actual reward. I had hoped it would at least be more seeds. :(

I wish the adventure took longer and yielded more seeds. 5 strawberries and a sword for mostly one and occasionally two forest seeds is a bit of expensive, and every 30 minutes is tedious, even for people like me, with a lot of time to play.

If your avatar moves slow or takes too long collecting, try quick collection. Tap menu (lower left), then social, and then neighbors. That should speed it up

This is how Story Book goals work. Each Chapter is 1 day.

Chapter 1 is the first day
Second Day - today - is Chapter 2
Tomorrow - Saturday - will be Chapter 3 (unless you pay to unlock with gems)
Sunday will be Chapter 4

All these times are based on S8 time- Pacific time. Time Zone converter here: http://www.thetimezoneconverter.com

It is frustrating that an event is rushed out without being beta tested, or tested for bugs at all, in fact. I mean come on: buildings for sale that you shouldn't buy - really? That's basic stuff, guys. Then the mods on here have to deal with all the blow-back from angry customers, when it's the IT team at S8 that should be dealing with our frustration.

Can't the IT team at least test their own stuff ONCE before they roll it out?

In your opinion is it possible to grow two saplings at the same time, and as you have two on your game board and are so far along, has it made anything more difficult.

I've got two underway and I'm going to level both as I go ... I'll let you know how it pans out

Only at the start but this quest is pretty cool so far.

(Kat, I've amended your post just to spell my name correctly :)) lol
from what I understand about this goal, it's similar to others in that you can only upgrade the tree when the goal tells you too; the side goals etc give you time to get the resources to upgrade the tree, so you should do them anyway, but they don't limit you in time; and the other materials are required to upgrade the tree at some point. Post 3 has the upgrade info.

Collecting from the tree will only give xp until it's fully upgraded. I'm really happy that it's all new materials - makes it fairer all round I think!

The goal says 0/1. So only 1 is required. I don't think the sapling is available in the Market.
Some players like to have souvenirs, so they crafted 2. I probably won't upgrade my 2nd until I feel I have enough materials so it's staying in storage for now.

The goal to craft the petal potion doesn't actually come up until Chapter 4 so I can see why it wouldn't be there just yet. I will continue to collect as many forest petals until it opens up since we will need quite a few as the goals continue to upgrade the tree & each upgrade I've seen requires 3 potions (which takes a total of 30 petals to craft all 3).

Forest essence - 15 forest wood, 10 forest spirits, 7 forest extract - 2 hour craft time

Hey dragongold! ~ Thanks for posting steps for all of us! :)

Where did you find forest wood??
Does it start to drop from sawmills at some point or from chopping a specific tree or what?

For Forest Wood and to spawn Forest Raccoons I've been exclusively chopping aspen trees. Im sure other trees drop as well but I didn't try.
Sawmills have not dropped any.

Ahh ok, guess I'll beef up my tree-chopping arm then, lol, thanks! :)

Can't start until the 20th but I have the forest adventure in my keep. I haven't started the event yet.

1. Will I be able to do these adventures now without clicking 'start'?

2. If I do an adventure will it trigger the event to start on its own?

So is it safe now to build the Forest Workshop earlier than required? Thnx.

You can do the adventure without triggering the event. I collected 19 seeds the last two days and just started chapter 1 this morning.

Just a thought, but could a total count be added in post one such as total forest petals needed to complete challenge and total number of strawberries etc for each component so players can prepare and replenish as needed as the max is 99 but I'm sure we would need over 99 as each chapter is complete and resources are used.

The Forest Sapling doesn't require watering to grow like some of our other trees do.
You UPGRADE it like a building but the upgrade window will only appear when you reach the goal that asks you to collect from a leveled up tree.
Hope that helps (& yes, it could have been worded better in the storybook).

Like katbtodd suggested, force close. (It may take a couple times)

Edit: glad to see you got it, sorry you wasted gems on that step. :(

S8! - change the wording to say UPGRADE (not "grow", which implies watering).

The tree has level 6. Looks like we would need to at least 120 petals and 90 saps for upgrading the tree from lvl 1 to lvl 5.

Here is a screenshot my my neb, hope she's ok with it. The stag is not cross eyed but the body looks like it was cut then glued together later :p

Altogether or is that just for one upgrade? I have 90 saps.

It's a building although it's called tree so it's no use to water it.

Forest Adventure does drop forest seeds if you have not started the event!

I am not planning on starting until tomorrow, but I saw the FA in my King's Keep and thought I'd try it to see what happens. I wish I had tried it yesterday! :rolleyes:

Update: it did trigger "Essence of the Forest Part I" though, with a 13-day timer. I don't know if it has automatically started the event for me, though. I don't want to tap it and start it by mistake.

The problem with a second sapling is if you don't actually level it up you can't restore or sell for 0 coins just sits there

Darn, didn't realize the sapling can't be stored. Was really hoping it would drop something useful. Really hope it can be stored at some point as it takes up a bit of space!

Yeah, it's weird because it counts as a building in storage and every building upgraded to at least level 1 could be always stored

So can I get the petals before I hit chapter 3? Or am I wasting my energy on that? I asked the same thing the other day and didn't get an answer (I think my question just got lost in the shuffle over the bugs).
Before the chapter, I harvested about 20 poppies and didn't get a single forest petal, so I think they must be locked. Since working on Ch. 3, forest petals are dropping on about every third poppy.

Edit: I didn't notice if the change came immediately or if it happened after building the forest workshop in task 2, though. I completed the first two tasks as soon as I unlocked Ch 3.

Not sure if I'm going to finish this. I need 40 more (out of 45) Seeds from the Forest Adventure for "Essence of the Forest Part 2". I know it's only a half hour adventure, but who has time to check that often, especially since it drops only one seed at a time! Otherwise, I like this side goal and the decorations. But really, 45 trips on the Forest Adventure is asking too much!

I had this happen to me because I didn't have a single 2 by 2 sized space in my kingdom. I finally found the black box hovering over where it was crafted.

I think either more seeds start dropping, or something is up with the counter. I'm on the same task and only had 7 seeds. After one quest, I then had 12 seeds. One more quest, and now I have 14. They are multiplying, somehow. I hope it continues, because only 1 per quest is an absurd amount of questing!
Of all stupid things, water has been killing me in this event! I think it's because my regular game goals are also requiring water right now. Good luck!

I agree that it requires a huge number of adventures to get the required seeds. I have seen the adventure return 2 and even 3 seeds sometimes, but mostly just 1.

I have been getting longswords from my knights' hall, level 5. It's not every drop, but at about the same rate as the jousting arena.

I will be ready to make potion in the Forest Workshop at midnight but the workshop is no longer showing the option for making it (it was there when I first bought the workshop). Is this glitch being investigated and will it be fixed in time to make the potions to finish Goal 4. I have reloaded my game.

I'm pretty sure I got 5 seeds on that one quest, and then 2 or 3 on several others (I've got a nasty head cold and the decongestant makes me feel like my brain is full of molasses, so I'm a little slow on the uptake today, lol!).
I can't ever read those little green numbers, so I keep checking my tree to see how many seeds I got after each quest, and it definitely jumped from 7 to 12. I got seeds before Ch 3 also, but not petals.
