Ivy: Did you hear that?
Ruler: Sure did -- where is it coming from?
*mysterious voice* Hey over here...
Ivy: I think it's coming from that bush over there.
Ruler: Who goes there? Come out and show yourself!
*mysterious voice* I'm not so sure about that.
Ruler: Why not? We won't hurt you.
*mysterious voice* I'm not sure you've ever met someone like me.
Ivy: Oh, we meet all kinds around here! There's no need to be scared.
*mysterious voice* Alright...here goes nothing.
*mysterious voice* ...
Ivy: Whoa! Where are your legs?!

Zabrina: No, no it's fine. I'm sure not too many of my kind come through here.

Ruler: Have you ever thought about returning home?
Zabrina: I would, but it's no longer there. Most of my home was destroyed by the Desert Nagas. Those who survived moved on to find new homes.
Ruler: Oh, I'm sorry to hear. Well, we'll build you a palace worthy of a princess! Is there anything you remember from your homeland?
Zabrina: Hmm...oh! Have you ever seen Desert Glass? It's a beautiful and colorful glass! It would look perfect in the Desert Palace.

Baron: That's what you think, now chop chop!

Glistening jewels and soothing silk are just two of the rare, exotic goods the brave might find across the heated dunes. Enter not that scorched place, lest ye desire to face off against the sands’ bandit nomads! Nevertheless, something seems to have made the journey here... Is it a threat to the kingdom, or another potential ally? Extend a wary hand, and perhaps an offer of hospitality will be met with a granted wish.

[==Update requires Level 17+ to participate, and is live 08/04 until 08/29 @ 4:00pm==]

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

Has anyone figured out where to get the Desert Naga? I can't find it in the Market.

Edit: I'm good. It's spawned. I thought it was a permanent monster like the Royal Naga and Fireworks Naga.

I spawned one chopping rocks, got desert sand too from the rock pile.

Thanks. I thought he was permanent like the Fireworks Naga and Royal. I see.

Update: The Desert Naga requires 5 hits. I got 2 Desert Silk when I killed it.

I also only received 3 Desert Sand from a Rock Outcropping. So 20 hits yielded only 3. Not very good.

But yeah, it'd be nice to know what all exactly spawns this new Naga.
The question mark info tab inside the event itself isn't very helpful, lol.

08-04-16, 12:37 PM
Old Thomas' house spawned a desert naga for me. I couldn't see it, just the cloud around it, but the name at the bottom said Desert Naga (perhaps it has powers of invisibility, ha). I also got a desert sand from the Mermaid Pond.

08-04-16, 12:42 PM
So far regular ponds, some buildings (Old T reported), mermaid ponds (reported), iron rich rock (8/8), and rock outcroppings (20/20) spawn the 5 HP naga. I'm still testing wells, I have harvested 4 Rustic Wells and no Naga spawn or Sand drops. I don't think I'll use anymore energy on these...maybe tomorrow, but for now -no go.

@LadyLolepere - I assume this building will grow as we upgrade it, which is good and bad : /

I just harvested a while bunch of sugar cane and wheat which is what was ready in my field. No jewel fragments so I am not sure what we are supposed to harvest to be able to get those. Or maybe they are really rare. . .

Yes thank you Stargaze! I regretted closing it without taking a screen shot, the info in the event doesn't tell us very much.

The tavern spawned a desert Naga for me.

I'm grateful that the limits for sand, Jewel fragments, etc is 999, but that must mean we will be needing a LOT of them! :eek:

08-04-16, 12:46 PM
I was also wondering where to get jewel fragments, so far they are very rare ? Another question is, what does this snake charmer do for 400 gems ? I mean he can't be just deco for 400 gems right ? :/

No jewel fragments so I am not sure what we are supposed to harvest to be able to get those. Or maybe they are really rare. . .


I was also wondering where to get jewel fragments, so far they are very rare ?

I got 1 Jewel Fragment from 8 hits of large rock outcropping and 1 Jewel Fragment from 5 hits on iron rich rocks. I don't think I'll be purposely chopping rocks just yet. I'll have to see how the upgrades ramp up I guess then decide.


From first page since there seems to be confusion of drops:
Desert Glass: Taverns, Thomas's home, Conservatives, Market Places
Desert Sand: Iron rich rocks, rock outcropping, small rock pile, ponds, Mermaid Pond, so far does not include Rustic Well
Desert Silk: Desert naga and slay the desert naga adventure
Jewel Fragment (used to Craft Desert Jewelsx100): Iron rich rock, Rock Outcropping (so far as I've seen)

Maybe harvest means chopping trees?

I've gotten 4 of the fragments so far, all while collecting from ponds, chopping rocks, etc. I'm wondering if 'harvest' should read 'collecting'?

Also, I did the 30 minute adventure 1st, just to check....I got forest seeds. I'm thinking this one may have been added by mistake?

Ps. I'm sad about the loss of my parked pet raccoon. Hope the Naga spawn rate increases!

It looks like some of our past feedback has been listened to. Having a finished building is nice, even if I don't make it it can still look nice in my Queendom. And it seems the buildings we need to focus on are identified. Thank you. So far I'm looking forward to this one.

I think the forest adv is a glitch too..it dropped forest seeds ( from a previous timed quest, the forest tree I think ).. Also, I have 2 slay the desert naga adventures, one at the top of the list, and one at the bottom

I loved my parked pet raccoon too, I took a screenshot and bid him farewell

Those of you who are getting the jewel fragments, are you sure they're not desert sand instead? I'm only asking because they look very similar and I have yet to collect any jewel fragments, but I have gotten 3 desert sand from the places mentioned.

Strange...the jewel fragments craft is no longer in my Magic Forge. We may have a wacky genie on our hands.

I think the forest adv is a glitch too..it dropped forest seeds ( from a previous timed quest, the forest tree I think ).. Also, I have 2 slay the desert naga adventures, one at the top of the list, and one at the bottom

I loved my parked pet raccoon too, I took a screenshot and bid him farewell

I haven't gotten the nerve to kill off my pet raccoon yet. Do you think it's absolutely necessary to succeed in this?

My ponds seem to be giving quite a bit of desert sand and a few jewel fragments. I had 7 ponds out since I've been trying to collect mermaid scales. Fished in all of them twice and had 17 sand and 4 jewel fragments afterwards.

Hmm... And if there's a new monster for this event, I guess that means I'll have to get rid of my parked racoon too.

Thanks. I thought he was permanent like the Fireworks Naga and Royal. I see.

Update: The Desert Naga requires 5 hits. I got 2 Desert Silk when I killed it.

I also only received 3 Desert Sand from a Rock Outcropping. So 20 hits yielded only 3. Not very good.

I found sand and jewel fragments at the pond and spanned a desert Naga I only spawned chopping rocks so far. The buildings are marketplace conservatory come from the Tavern and old Thomas house. They gave me drops before I even had the building on the board ! Lol.

Second step in book calls for mining rocks. Deep Cave formation and small rock pile did not count, only the iron rich rock as pictured.

One of my 10 conservatories dropped 6 glass instead of 3. Unfortunately I had just visited Old Thomas so I now have to wait.

First collection of jewels from palace were slow to appear in counter. They were there after visiting a neighbor. Force quit would probably have worked also.

Sorry I had to slay my raccoon but I really think the drops from the Desert Naga are needed. 2 silk every time, Naga stuff including coral, and jewel fragments and sand I think.

Spawn is a term we use to mean that an action you did randomly "summoned" a monster, like a desert Naga. For example, clicking on ponds or clicking on rocks to "chop" them might randomly trigger a desert Naga to appear (or a troll, a skunkupine, etc).

Can someone please explain this timing thing to me...again? I sign in to my game every 1-3 hrs. When I last played this event was not there. At 5pm est it was and before I clicked on it, it said 26 days on the icon & 25 days "on inside". I didn't notice the hrs. Now, 4hrs later it says 25 on the icon and 24 inside. I am 3hrs into the 24 days actually. Thank you.

Yup, that's what I thought, too. I didn't want to have to get rid of my raccoon, but I did anyway. The Nagas from ponds are helping, although I'm finding the jewel fragments hard to come by.

It's a monster that spawns from related buildings, water sources and rock sources. 5 hits. clear any other parked monsters!

So far I've harvested (2)Rustic Wells a total of 10 times and Swampy pond atleast 4-6. So far between the two they haven't caused Naga spawns or dropped anything Event related. Would need more testing maybe but I think these water sources don't count. So only Ponds (Mermaid and regular) for this event. I haven't checked Lorelei's Fountain, maybe tomorrow.

I did mean to mention though, once you have a Naga spawned is a good time to pick whatever else you need to in your kingdom (non-naga-spawning buildings/items). I made the mistake of going about my business and a Fangbeast popped up which wasted a bit of energy.

No, it's not just you. :-) And it serves as a good reminder for those who have had a beast parked for so long that they forgot it's there and that they need clear it so the Nagas can spawn. The question "Why aren't the ______ spawning for me?" gets asked multiple times during every event.

I've also discovered that the faerie pond doesn't drop anything event related either. So far, the regular ponds have the best rate for sand and Nagas for me. The rocks don't produce as well. (That could change next time I collect though. Lol)

No magic tricks involved. We just use the quick collect method.

From Spiritwind00


‼️collect fast: multi click what you want to collect. click social icon, then exit. Better chance of drops‼️)


For those on iOS, you can also click several items then swipe up from the bottom of the screen (to get to the control panel) then swipe back down.....everything that was clicked on will collect without the little avatar having to run to each one.

Adding this although I fully expect it may be removed (and I will be okay with that) but it needs to be said.
There are quite a few people on these forums who speak fluent sarcasm, and when it's used in a humorous way, it's actually quite fun. When it is used to antagonize or berate other forum contributors....not so much. This community is a very valuable fount of information and tips, and a lot can be learned from the players who post here, for those genuinely seeking information, that is.

not sure if its the case for everyone but, you cannot swipe control panel up when game or browser is open, at least not in newer iPads. you can however swipe left from the right edge IF you have 'multitasking' turned on and game will multi collect that way OR you can swipe notification down from top.

I think that jewel fragments are a rare drop from anything the event is using. I definitely got fragments from the Tavern. I got out all my ponds from the Lucky event earlier this year and got 16 sands in one go 'round. Yay!! So between the ponds/rocks for Desert Sand, Old Thomas's House, Marketplaces, Conservatories, Taverns for Desert Glass, and Nagas/Adventures for Desert Silk, even a rare drop has a fair chance!

I did notice that the were several things about this event that seemed like we are getting some positive results from our feedback... Go S8! Love the crafting option.

Although having Sabina and Zabrina in the same Kingdom might get a little confusing...

Also if you still need a boar, my wells are spawning them.

Also also... Try pm'ing a mod when you have a problem with a post. Quicker results, op doesn't seem targeted and you don't have to discuss it with other forum-goers who disagree and clog the thread even more.

The level 3 desert palace drops 8 desert jewels.

Does anyone know yet if the jewel fragments collected in Beating the Sands of Time Part 2 are required to stay in inventory in order to count towards the goal? (Like the sand did in a Desert Flower)
I hope to make jewels as soon as I reach 25, but not if it means starting all over to reach 50.

Like everyone else, I'm a bit stuck for jewel fragments. Doing gently OK on most other things though. Looks like I shall miss this timed side goal, but otherwise it looks possible.

I'm off to page one to get all the exact details, and then make a mess of my Kingdom putting out extra stuff. I have some holiday in the middle of the goal, so that might help.

I was about to buy some gems for a mithril dragon, as I have several on going quests that need it. With all this chopping, I might just wait. Plus, the number of people upset at losing their raccoons might persuade S8 to offer the 'raccoon and gems' package again.

All I have to do is look at a pond and a Desert Naga spawns, lol! One just dropped so much stuff I had to take a quick screen shot to see it all: 2 energy, 2 XP, 1 Seaweed, 3 Naga Fins, 1 Jewel Fragment, 1 Coral Cluster, 2 Desert Silk. Wow! I'm almost ready to upgrade the palace to level 2, just need a little more Desert Glass.

I am really enjoying this event so far. I like how the instructions are very clear and the helpful pop-ups every time I enter the game reminding me where to collect the necessary items. The side goals look good, too- I really want that Spitting Camel, he's adorable! (I love camels, even though I hear they can be pretty standoffish and kind of rude irl).
Plus, all this collecting from ponds is helping me with my Enchanter's Essences- ran though the last of my Mermaid Scales yesterday and have already managed to gather up a nice little supply. Sweet!

And thanks so much for the tip on using the control panel to speed collecting! I have been pulling the big notifications screen down from the top of my iPad to do it and never even thought to use the much smaller control panel (Duh). :)

I have no logged into this game in the last three days, not even to pick up the daily rotten cabbage from my hut. In the previous event I spent almost 100 gems to keep up with the daily tasks during the first days but the requirements to upgrade were so insanely high for the last days that I could not do it, not even by spending the last gems I have. Then I came here to see what prize I missed to realize that the ONLY and FINAL prize was as lame as the ones given lately. I regret spending those 100 gems in first place. Also, I do not recall being informed during the game that Thomas house drops ink. I spent more that half of my gems in speeding the jest to get ink only to realize Old Thomas house also dropped ink.

In other games from Storm8 like Dragon Story if you do not finish the event at least you got something. In the current event you can win up to 5 dragons, or if you do not play as much, or you do not want to spend gems, you will win two or three dragons. Here I spent almost 100 gems during last event but I could not finish because of the insanely high costs of the level upgrades, so after spending almost 100 gems I got nothing. And in the previous event, I spent over 100 gems to get an ugly martian Bambi which droppings are so lame I cannot remember what it gives.

Yes, I also got some pretty decoration. Decoration I have to remove to make space for the 25+ animals I have to place if I want to finish the upcoming events on time. Last event was pigs. If you do not place 25+ pigs in advance you will fall behind. And that is the other thing, you have to come here and read the upcoming tasks, or you will not be able to finish either. See my comment about ink at Old Thomas house.

This game is over. I would like to transfer my remaining gems to other game.

Relax. The desert jewel drop will increase dramatically and it is only a 1 hr timer. I recall getting 50something grapes as the vineyard got bigger. It went even higher but I don't remember exact numbers. Same w other community events. This one, based on the forum, goes from 2 to 4 to 8 by L3. I'm guessing L4 will be 16 then L5 20 or 30 something based on past events.

The fastest way to get more jewels and thus individual and community prizes is to level up the main event building as fast as possible to increase your drops of the community item.

The maxes are either 999 or possibly as much as 999,999. Since you got double digits in your inventory you only see xx/99... But when it was single digits it was either x/999 or 6/999... I forget which. So they do tell you. Just keep collecting.

As for high amounts, I like it. I like getting 20 even if it means I need 200, more than getting 2 from a tavern and needing 20. It's the same math of 10 collections but feels easier. It also makes buying a few more easier with costing 1 or 2 gems at a time if you are a little short, instead of a lot of gems for one. Again it'll likely be the same amount of gems spent but feels easier.

8 conservatories (I needed a ton of seeds for some other goal and another time a ton of fertilizer)
6 markets (usually helps w community events)
4 taverns
Now 8 ponds.

I had 5 ponds but just bought a few more and stored the essence pool, some large flower, and a few other 2x2s that I don't need for a while. I don't have a ton of extra energy sources, just 2 wizard schools at 20 a few times a day and a 40/wk horse so 8 is enough for me. I prefer not to waste so staying on top or crafting that uses water.

A couple of those buildings are L5 but mostly L1.

This looks like a gin event! Got a bit of a late start but now I have brought out buildings from my inventory. I have:

6 market places
3 taverns
4 conservatories (had only 2 and built 2 more)
9 ponds (didn't feel like scrolling through the inventory so I just bought 5 more on top of the 4 I always have on my board)
1 mermaid pond

Good luck, everyone!

*Edit: LOL autocorrect! Not a gin event - a fun event!

No, it's not just you. :-) And it serves as a good reminder for those who have had a beast parked for so long that they forgot it's there and that they need clear it so the Nagas can spawn. The question "Why aren't the ______ spawning for me?" gets asked multiple times during every event.

I've also discovered that the faerie pond doesn't drop anything event related either. So far, the regular ponds have the best rate for sand and Nagas for me. The rocks don't produce as well. (That could change next time I collect though. Lol)

Ps. Defeating the Sands of Time: Part 1 (this may have been posted already, but I didn't see it in post one)
reward box contained:
20 desert glass
5 desert sand
2 desert silk

Can not find my reward box anywhere. I've searched my inventory and my realm. I saw the message that I won it, but then it disappeared. Tried force closing but still can't find it. Anyone else with this problem?

Can't build any more conservatories:( already have 42 Royal buildings and I don't wish to anything which will reduce my RP

So far this quest has been ok. Just the drop rate of jewel fragments is pretty abysmal...

There isn't an actual box. All that stuff goes straight into your inventory.

Ok, I'm getting a little peeved already, lol ...I slayed my pet 'coon just to get these dang Desert Nagas to appear & 5 ponds & an entire rock outcropping later? ...spawned nothing. Nada. Grr!!! lol

I feel your pain... I still have a pet forest raccoon but will need to slay him some time very soon to spawn the new monster!!

If you put one of your ponds from your board into inventory all the ponds will be brought to the front of the inventory and you won't have to scroll to find them.

I use this trick every time I have to bring out stuff from the inventory :)

Finally! After about 150 taps I have enough jewel fragments to craft the desert jewels, so don't lose hope because it is possible! I mainly focused on ponds with 25% on rocks mainly iron rich and a couple outcropping. Kept at that strategy with 75/25 and it worked :) hope others get there so they can move to the next step. Right now I have an hour wait as it sits in the forge

* update For the craft I got 20 glass, 5 sand and 2 silk

So if I am not mistaken we do not need jeweled fragments for the building, just side goals which mean once we have enough to craft we should and it gives a pretty nice bounty to help towards the building which is a nice bonus :)

RP's don't have much importance during an event.. u can always rebuild and put back together what u sold for present use. it's part of the game playing around, selling, buying, exchanging.. messing up ur kingdom then pleasingly putting the pieces back together again.. just how u want. it's fun!

I'd like to know too, I'm 12/50 if not I'll test tomorrow. Ill be gone most of the day. It might be later on tomorrow depends on collecting on my old phone, if I remember.

NOTE: For Beating the Sands of Time Part 2: DO NOT craft desert jewels until you collect all 50 jewel fragments!!!

I had 26/50 jewel fragments in the goal book and in inventory, so I decided to risk it and craft jewels. Now the goal book is showing 1/50 jewel fragments. :(

It should read 'have' not 'collect'

Jewel fragments are next to impossible . I have spent over 200 energy on various rocks and have only got 12 and 4 Nagas , anyone else getting frustrated?

mine are:
6 Taverns
4 Markets
6 Conservatories.. (planning on more as collection time's less than Taverns&Markets.. going through to see whatever 3x3 I don't need to collect from for this event)
20 Ponds

I have 6 Taverns, 4 Markets, 7 Conservatories, and 14 ponds. I will add more ponds. I may kill a watchtower and make another conservatory.

Several people have reported having better luck getting fragments and Nagas from the ponds. That has been true for me as well....plus I find the sand drop rate better from ponds also.

You can get 4 and a fragment, I don't think 3 hours is worth it when you can get energy daily for collecting. Nagas seem to spawn good.

Remember that the conservatories give royal points also. You would be trading royal points not giving them up. I would recommended selling watch towers and/or lantern spires. I try to keep a balance of these as either may be asked for in events. If you do sell buildings to build conservatories, double check that the buildings you sell are level 1 or as low as you have. I once sold several level 5 buildings by accident. Any new conservatories only need to be level 1 for most events. It is common to have to sell and rebuild conservatories, watch towers, lantern spires, cottages and/or farmhouses. After a while you expect it during these events.

Wow. I'm kind of behind atm but I'll definitely have to set a timer once I get to that one, it'll be tight, as long as I can do 4 a day plus one more. I don't mind doing the Adventures, I was close to cap on swords before this event started...they were my go-to craftable to get rid of iron and jewels since my Forges are usually available.

I guess it depends on the style of each player. For me the adventures rock; maybe because the nagas do not want to spawn in my little queendom. No, I don't have anything parked, it's just that I find the spawning rate too low. Thanks to the adventures I never lack silk. They have a nice timer and are not very expensive. There's plenty of iron with all that rock chopping and plenty of water from the ponds so it's nice to have the possibility to use the surplus.

Do you have the rest of the event? If no, do you have the most current version of the game?
If yes, It would be in your keep only, not available in the Barracks. I know sometimes Quest items and Adventures show up at the bottom of my list to choose from, have you scrolled all the way down?
Have you tried force closing and/or re-installing?
Are you past part 1 of Desert Flower Quest? I'm not sure when my Adventure had opened (I had an Adventure out at the time), maybe it doesn't open until Part 2?

Those are the only things I can think of. Sorry if this doesn't help : /

I have four conservatories, but only one is level 5. My level 5 dropped 6 Desert Glass, the others dropped 3. Was this a coincidence (ie, it's a random drop of 3 or 6 and it just happened that my fully upgraded conservatory dropped the higher drop)? Or should I be upgrading all my conservatories?

I am not following this discussion. I already started to craft the desert jewel Before reading this. My goal book just has a check mark as complete. So is this issue fixed?
