A Fiery, Foxy Box - gem purchase only

* There is no quest attached to this week's update.
* A Fiery Box is chopped in 1 action and drops a random selection of at least 1 of the items listed below. If you are maxed on an item you will not receive it.

* There are ONLY 2 ways to get the fox:

1. use gems to buy fur (15 gems each) and then craft the fox in the workshop - this will cost you 1125 gems; or
2. take a chance and use gems to buy Fiery Mystery Boxes in the Market and hope for either fur (which don't drop every time) or the Fox.



Hey there! Yes, it is a chance of getting a fire fur from the Fiery Box. If you prefer to not go the chance route, it is 15 Gems per Fire Fur through the Workshop. If you decide to use only Gems, it will be a total of 1125 Gems to craft the Fire Fox. Hope that clears it up a little bit.

update!

Hey everyone!

Heads up that we're pushing out a few updates for this content.


The duration of the Fiery Mystery Box and the associated craft to get the Fire Fox have been extended to 8/31 @ 11:30pm
Additionally, based on everyone's feedback regarding the pricing compared to the drops, we've decided to increase the chops to 2.
As a thank you for your continued support of Castle Story, we're giving everyone Level 10+ a few free Fiery Mystery Boxes! Log in to complete the quest any time between now and 8/31 @ 11:30pm to collect your free boxes!


Thank you everyone for playing Castle Story! Good luck with your boxes and the rest of the Desert Nights event! :)

Be aware that the purchase of this item, like all items, is completely optional and the drops are random. I appreciate the comments in this post and have reproduced it here so you can make an informed choice....
I'm happy to see that also negative opinions and warnings are also accepted on the forum as personal opinions and experience. I do believe players should be able to read the "pros" and the "cons" of all and any arguments if they are interested.

Yes.. there is the possibility of finding a Fox in the gift box with 1chop.. but it's a chance of 1 out of 117 as reported by player.

No.. it's not true as pop-up says "get a RARE drop with every chop" ... as apples, whips, boar tusks, etc... are normal daily drops... and remember... nothing if you are maxed on those items given!

"Beware of Fox Traps" warning to other players is more than justified and welcomed.. so each player can judge and measure their own risk of obtaining nothing even though spending 50Gems.. thus concluding and not blaming, or being surprised.. of their choice.

Good Luck for those who try.. and happy playing for those who don't.



The Fire Fox drops the following:

Coal
Jewels
Longsword
Light Armor
Earth Wisp
Coins
Gems
Dragon Scales
Energy
Orange Petal
Fur
Rat Tail
Creep Tooth
Fey Crystal
Milk

Forest critters come in many shapes and sizes! I've seen quite a few in my day... Recline with me, and I shall tell you of one such creature! Every so often, the summer days get so hot, they say it even spurns new life. Fall looms ever closer, and with it a cooler breeze. Only with the union of the sun's beating rays, and the wind's chilling breath will this creature wander the Glimmerwood once more. Xanthic fur will lead the way!

[==Update requires Level 10+, and is live from 08/25 until 08/31 @ 11:30pm. There are no quests associated with this update.==]

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

Fiery Mystery Box
"Summer's heating up! Chop open for resources and a chance for a fiery surprise!"

Really?!? ... A resource box for 50 gems with only a chance to get the firefox!! :(
Must have stuff to help finish those still working on the Desert Nights event.
No thanks

Was all excited for another event...
Should've known it was too good to be true haha

Also the Gold Mine is no longer in the market! :(
Maybe a good thing ... was almost about to spend $30 to get one next pay.

Snake Charmer is down to 200 gems now too.

Chop for resources like 1 wood, fancy stone block, spellbound dew, or even a magic cement lol
Found new things: 1 sap, 1 red flower box, 1 spicy feast, Ice cream !!!
So it might be anything you could get but only 1 each type. Pass !

There is a new craft in the Workshop for a Fire Fox:

Requires 75 Fire Furs (from Fiery Box) and 15,000 coins. Craft time 1 hour.

1 Fire Fur is 15 gems. So you could purchase all 75 Furs for 1125 gems!

I just saw this too. Anyone know how many fire furs you get per box? This sounds like a very gem-expensive critter.

With no idea as to what it will contribute to my Queendom, I'll probably pass!

Ok so where does the fire fur come from ? We need 75. 50 gems for one box to drop 1 fur! p u can buy them for 15 gems each. But there has to be another source ! I've slayed a bore, skunkupine and a fang beast. Nothing. I've collected from all my buildings and nothing. :/.

In workshop, it says the fur comes from the new box so it might be the only source :(

My awesome "rich" nbr bought and chopped tons of those new gift boxes- he chopped them all and got lots of materials and decos.
He wrote he got the fox, the faerie statue, banners, flower box, fire lily and can't remember what else he wrote on his wall but I remember seeing the fox - its kinda cute and the size is good too)
Im not so lucky neither i am rich so I might pass this time on this update ... unless theres an alternative way to get the materials to craft the new fox... Not interested in other decos)

so will be even MORE than 3750Gems?! maybe double?! 7500Gems?! now that's what I classify "chicken food" ...not worthwhile for human use. there must be a mistake somewhere.

I don't understand this one at all. Why not just put the Firefox in the market for gems? Or make it a special 'prize' with the purchase of gems? Did we not spend enough money on the golden mine and enchanted dew blossom? Unless there is a way to craft, collect or win fire fur, this isn't an update, it's just another item for sale.
For 50 gems each there should be a guarantee of multiple fire furs per box, not just a maybe. Does anyone even know yet what, if anything, the fox does/drops?

Soooo...it would appear that the Armored Fire Dragon mated with the Fox from the Baron's Tent, in a field of Fire Lilies, beside a faerie. lol

For 1125 Gems, minimum, I'd think it would drop ONLY Gems or Energy, every hour!... The Alicorn only costs 600 Gems (& sometimes goes on sale).
This is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy over-priced.

very disappointing Katt, I can imagine.. drops should have been 'always special' spending 50gems, instead of receiving what we collect daily... even if no tails nor Foxes were collected.

instead of a fox, could we get a super cow or chicken? like click once on the super cow and get tons of milk or eggs? so we can put some away and have more room?

or could we please store that huge roost if we are done with the quest ( the big grey one thats part of the story)

a fox? of all the things , and for the price!! omg i want that cool aid your drinking over there!!

Yes, but it's a fox who may or may not come from a box.
It might be a fox who eats Pop Rocks.
Or a fox who eats a lot of lox.
Either way, it'll most assuredly not be wearing socks.

I use to read , The fox went out one chilly down. To my kids when they were little

The Fox went out on a chilly night
He prayed for the moon to give him light
For he had many a mile to go that night
Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o
He had many a mile to go that night
Before he reached the town-o

He ran till he came to the farmers pen
The ducks and the geese were kept therein
He said a couple of you are gonna grease my chin
Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o
A couple of you are gonna grease my chin
Before I leave this town-o

He grabbed the great goose by the neck
He threw a duck across his back
And he didn't mind the quack, quack
And the legs all danglin' down-o, down-o, down-o
He didn't mind the quack, quack
And the legs all danglin' down-o

Well the old gray Woman jumped out of bed
Out of the window she popped her head
Cryin' John, John the great goose is gone
The Fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o
John, John the great goose is gone
And the Fox is on the town-o

He ran till he came to his nice warm den
And there were the little ones 8, 9, 10
Sayin' Daddy, Daddy better go back again
It must be a mighty fine town-o, town-o, town-o
Daddy, Daddy go back again
For it must be a mighty fine town-o

The Fox and his Wife, without any strife
They cut up the goose with a fork and a knife
And they never had such a supper in their life
And the little ones chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o
They never had such a supper in their life
And the little ones chewed on the bones

Hey there! Yes, it is a chance of getting a fire fur from the Fiery Box. If you prefer to not go the chance route, it is 15 Gems per Fire Fur through the Workshop. If you decide to use only Gems, it will be a total of 1125 Gems to craft the Fire Fox. Hope that clears it up a little bit.

So she buys the box (her wallet balks!),
With her ear close to hear for squawks?
From gamecocks?...
No! she's hoping for the fox!
Sitting in Glimmerwoods' hemlocks and hollyhocks
She pries it open, it unlocks
Sadly all she got was a Stone Block....which is a hunk of rock :P
And tossed it into the cornstalks.

So besides being expensive and useless, this thing is also ugly? What a laugh

It would have been something tolerable if it would be obtainable without gems and a bit of effort bit this... This is not something that you should keep on the record when trying to get new customers.

33109ok , so the story continues, and it looks like the foxthorities have captured, through street cameras, some mug shots of fox,33110( hes the one on the bottom right ) . so with that new information they tracked him down near a rivers edge... and apparently after a high speed canoe chase through dangerously calm waters , the fox lead the foxthorities right to the bandits den!!!! and they not only captured him , but his gang also! 33111 foxthorities found out this gang has been around for a very long time, and in that time the fox gang has a HUGE following!!!, they are everywhere!!!33112so they ask that people be very careful, and lock your canoes and jewelry up at night. 33113 rest safe people of foxville , and neighboring kingdoms, your fox bandit has been caught.

or could we please store that huge roost if we are done with the quest ( the big grey one thats part of the story)

a fox? of all the things , and for the price!! omg i want that cool aid your drinking over there!!

p.s oh and that 4x4 waterfall would look great with all the naga drops....:rolleyes:

I never understood gambling so I shall opt out of this "event".

I do feel sorry for people who spent 50 gems and got a mermaid scale or an earth wisp or something else of the forever maxed out variety.

That was me who paid 50 gems for a mermaid scale... it was in a pretty box tho!
Alot of ppl will probably do 1 box chop at least. That's a lot of money for storm8. Then there's those who will keep chop chopping,so good luck to them.

Maybe Storm8 is testing it out. Surely they can see alot won't be pleased. They'll make money just by ppl trying it out buying a box or 2 let alone the ppl who will really go for it. Trouble is,the more ppl who buy boxes the more money they'll make and the more liklihood of them keep doing this with other items. Yuk!

I use to read , The fox went out one chilly down. To my kids when they were little

The Fox went out on a chilly night
He prayed for the moon to give him light
For he had many a mile to go that night
.....
And the little ones chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o
They never had such a supper in their life
And the little ones chewed on the bones

I LOVE this song (Nickel Creek has a passable version)!!

So basically the Fiery Box drops... Everything?

I honestly would love the Fire fox (not least because of the special place in my heart that Mozilla's browser will hold), but because I do like the gamble and things which can drop really good stuff I like.

But ain't no way that I am getting 1175 gems in 4 days and I am not spending real life $$. I gotta feed my two-year-old!

I know this is feedback they won't listen to, but if you want $$ from us, go back to the old way of downloading games and getting 15-30 gems for it. You will get tons of downloads and keep your peeps happy!

Wow! Just wasted 100 diamonds on the Fiery Mystery Box, with the hopes of getting some fluffy tails to create a Fire Fox.

NOT ONE fluffy tail. No animal to slay in exchange for the box (no creatures were on my game board when I opened the box).

What were the prizes? Spellbound dew (four in total), fur, bacon and wooden beams. I feel VERY RIPPED OFF. I could have used the 100 diamonds for so many other USEFUL things.

Anyone else have the same experience? How do we get fluffy tails if not via the Fiery Mystery Box?

At least you got a fur. I got a Mercury Feast for the 50 gems. For that price you should get a whole lot more than one chop and one measly item you can easily get. Of course I had to give it a shot to see. This money grab is obnoxious

I'm happy to see that also negative opinions and warnings are also accepted on the forum as personal opinions and experience. I do believe players should be able to read the "pros" and the "cons" of all and any arguments if they are interested.

Yes.. there is the possibility of finding a Fox in the gift box with 1chop.. but it's a chance of 1 out of 117 as reported by player.

No.. it's not true as pop-up says "get a RARE drop with every chop" ... as apples, whips, boar tusks, etc... are normal daily drops... and remember... nothing if you are maxed on those items given!

"Beware of Fox Traps" warning to other players is more than justified and welcomed.. so each player can judge and measure their own risk of obtaining nothing even though spending 50Gems.. thus concluding and not blaming, or being surprised.. of their choice.

Good Luck for those who try.. and happy playing for those who don't.

oliverrr11
08-26-16, 01:01 AM
People, there is NOT a one in 117 chance of getting a fox-in-a-box just because there are 117 possible items you can get. It doesn't work that way unless they are all programmed to drop at the same exact rate. They clearly are not. I'm sure we don't want to know the true odds of getting one. 1 in 117 would be a dream scenario! Lol!

Simple proof? How many people bought, say, 3 boxes and got 2 or 3 fire fur? Fire fur is one of those 117 items, and in equal odds they would also be a 1 in 117 drop. How many people bought 3 boxes and got 2 or 3 foxes????? Or in other words, you would be hearing about the same amount of people that are receiving a fox as you are hearing about receiving a fire fur. That ain't happening.

Edit: and OF COURSE the very next post after this is about receiving a fox!! Lolol! Congrats and keep smiling! :D

Of peasants struggling to keep warm.

"And corn and strawberries to eat,
"Some woven cloth to make a bed,
"And furs to clothe their hands and feet."

"Did I say, 'GIVE'? You know me well,
"My gifts are hardly ever free.
"When these necessities I SELL,
"The one who benefits is me!"

"And deep within a mystery box,
"So pretty that they can't say 'No,'
"A chance to win a Fiery Fox
"At only fifty gems a go!"

Well in looking at the fox droppings, they fall into three categories:

Things I am currently maxed out on
Thinks I am frequently maxed out on but don't happen to be at the moment
Things I have crafted way too many of in order to use up the aforesaid maxed items.

Of course, gems are in none of those categories, but somehow I don't think at almost 50 I will live long enough to recoup 1125 gems lol

The Fire Fox is cool. Although I Definitely could use a pet Dire Wolf though to help fight the Dire Boars! LOL. My Fire Fox seems a little nervous or jittery though. He's flicking his tail EXTRA hard. LOL. But overall very happy to have one in my kingdom!!!:o :cool:

I'm going to wait and see if the box goes on sale towards the end of it's availability like many event items.

To me a lot more people would gamble,with their gems if the price was lower , that's for sure since the odds are like one in 117 chance .

I received one piece of wood on my first box, which was slightly maddening but thankfully received the Fire Fox on my second. I wouldn't necessarily say it was worth it, but I'm still pretty happy to have him in my kingdom! I second tonyjosiah's idea about having a dire wolf!

People, there is NOT a one in 117 chance of getting a fox-in-a-box just because there are 117 possible items you can get. It doesn't work that way unless they are all programmed to drop at the same exact rate. They clearly are not. I'm sure we don't want to know the true odds of getting one. 1 in 117 would be a dream scenario! Lol!

Simple proof? How many people bought, say, 3 boxes and got 2 or 3 fire fur? Fire fur is one of those 117 items, and in equal odds they would also be a 1 in 117 drop. How many people bought 3 boxes and got 2 or 3 foxes????? Or in other words, you would be hearing about the same amount of people that are receiving a fox as you are hearing about receiving a fire fur. That ain't happening.

Edit: and OF COURSE the very next post after this is about receiving a fox!! Lolol! Congrats and keep smiling! :D

Yes of course you are quite correct.. but not knowing the drop% of each single drop.. and then knowing there are 117 different drops.. it's just easy to say "one out of 117 drops".
No statistics here.. it's just logical and quick thinking.

I'm not buying. My luck with the Xmas gifts boxes was bad and all I can get from the lucky workshop is coins an occasionally 5 energy. I have the little fox from the Baron's tent. I'll be a one fox queendom

These people at S8 have gone totaly nuts.

There is 1% chance of getting Fire Fox and 10% of getting Fire Fur from the box.
One box costs 50 gems, boxes needed for 75 Fur = 750, times 50gems = 37500 GEMS!

If you buy 1400 gems at sale for $40, that means you will, on average, spend a little bit over $1071 to get the fox.

It will be very hard for developers to overcome that price for a single item.

By the way, drops for Fire fox are not that impressive either:
[100%] lCoal(2)[10%], Jewels(2)[5%], Longsword(1)[4%], Light Armor(1)[4%], Earth Wisp(1)[4%], Coins(1000)[6%], Gems(2)[2%], Dragon Scales(3)[15%], Energy(5)[5%], Dragon Scales(2)[45%]
[100%] Orange Petal(1)[90%], Orange Petal(2)[10%]
[100%] Fur(1)[33.2%], Rat Tail(1)[33.2%], Creep Tooth(1)[33.2%], Fey Crystal(1)[0.4%]
[100%] Milk(1)[100%]

A few observations/suggestions:

If boxes stay at 50Gems a piece
**I think if the box had a guaranteed drop of 3-6 Firey Furs along with prizes would turn things around quite a bit.
(Average amount assume 4)

Cost of Fur 15Gems x 4 = 60Gems
One box dropping 4 fur, plus prizes = 50Gems
People would actually be making progress towards to Fox. Even if they were full on the additional drop item...at least they'd have Fur to show for it and not feel as ripped off.

**I think another improvement would be to "trim" the box drop list. Keep it towards the rarer end with a value equal to or higher then the price of the Mystery box:

Wisp Lantern (15G)
Expansion Permit (150-250Gems, no idea)
Spellbound Dew 5-8(25-40Gems value)
Silver 3-4 (12Gems each = 36-48 Gem value)
If it's going to drop Fancy Blocks and Beams how about dropping a few?
I think that's my main point and someone else pointed it out, if the box dropped multiples it would be a nice compromise.

Get rid of the lower Gem value items like petals, dyes, fur, hide, sap, wood, etc. or if not, pump up the amount of the drop atleast?

Or how about:
If boxes were offered at a lower Gems price
There's still a ton of profit ...but the profit with be for both parties!
Upping the drop amounts(multiples), knocking out some lower super common mob drop items in favor of valuable ones like Mysterious Venom, or Dragon Scales.
Keeping Firey Fur as a guaranteed drop, preferably a multiple, maybe 2-4 if the box price is lowered

A slightly easier to swallow Gem cost -> more boxes sold!

Or maybe this:
If Fiery Fur was craftable, expensive, but craftable!
10 Fur (regular), 20 Coal (for burning), 15 Wood (for Fuel!) = 1-2 Fiery Fur
Just an idea...


I know this item is along the same lines of Rainbow Pot, and there are many max players that wouldn't benefit from even the multiple drops...but for the player base as a whole, a few tweaks to this item, and future ones like it - I feel could improve perceptions.

*Grain of Salt feedback*, thanks for reading.

Lol! I don't think the drop rate is the problem and do believe what u explained.
It's the 50Gems a try that's giving the indigestion... with many common drops included! It should have been all precious rare drops at that price.

I never understood gambling so I shall opt out of this "event".

I do feel sorry for people who spent 50 gems and got a mermaid scale or an earth wisp or something else of the forever maxed out variety.

I got a red petal! Or at least I would have if I hadn't already been maxed out on them :(

So I felt like Charlie from the Chocolate factory as I opened each free box hoping I would get the lucky fox. No such luck. Not even one fur for inventory which would have been nice for my collection but it's not worth price. Not sure if it has been mentioned I've read through but didn't see it, does he do anything or just deco? He would need to drop 100 energy a day or something at the price he is set at lol

****edit WHAT?!?!?!!! I got a Firefox in my inventory!!!!!!! How did I miss it? I watched each item drop carefully! Maybe it was that 6th one. Ahhhhhh now I feel like Charlie and take it all back. I never am one of the lucky ones and somehow got lucky this time!!! I'm floating. I hope others get it from the free boxes, best of luck to all of you :)

If I didn't get the fox it would have been nice to have one fur in inventory for my collection but it's not worth the gems for it. Life will go on. Not a fan of this fox event at all. Way too pricy for one animal. Not sure if it has been mentioned I've read through but didn't see it, does he do anything or just deco?

There was no need to gift us these free boxes, really! What you could have done from the start would be to set a realistic price for those boxes and include only rare drops, as promised by the description. I think, 5 gems per box would be a normal price. As a result, more people would have participated, more boxes would have been purchased and you would have ended up with more revenue. I think, overall, it was a poor marketing decision that led to crazy pricing both for the box (50 gems) and obtaining the fox (at least 1125 gems). So, I am not excited about this free gift, but rather disappointed in this quest or event, whatever you wanna call that sad attempt to rip off your customers.
