Galloping Through the Galaxy! - Dialogue


Part 1
Old Thomas: Young Ruler, I am glad to have run into you. I have some news.
Ruler: what is it, Old Thomas?
Old Thomas: You may have noticed I have been confined to my quarters lately. I have been studying the stars, and recently noticed quite the alignment.
Ruler: Alignment?
Old Thomas: Yes, the stars are aligning quite perfectly to summon an Alicolt. It happens once ever few hundred years.
Ruler: What's an Alicolt?
Old Thomas: A celestial being, similar to our own Alicorn. They gallop through the heavens above. If we build a Moon Crystal in time for the stars to align, we may be able to summon one. Search around the kingdom for anything new, interesting things may begin to happen.


Part 2
Ruler: Hey Ivy... I see you've found the Star Dust appearing around the kingdom.
Ivy: Sure have! I heard you and Old Thomas are building a Moon Crystal! I think I have the perfect solution to strengthen it too. Then we can summon a cute, adorable, sweet little baby Alicolt!
Ruler: You've heard about the Alicolt too?
Ivy: Only in stories, but Old Thomas swears he's seen one through his telescope before. I thought he was just staring at those bright stars a little too long, but maybe he was right!


Part 3:
Old Thomas: To give the Moon Crystal more power, we should find items from our world. Think of items that being life -- or give us energy.
Ruler: Hmm, what about Water?
Old Thomas: Perfect, Young Ruler. Your mind is on the right track. I have also noticed a dusty powder forming on some of the Mushrooms in the kingdom. I think it may. E Moon Dust, caused by the stars' alignment. Perhaps it could be of use to us?
Ruler: I'll see what I can find!


Part 4:
Ruler: Hey Ivy, how're things coming along?
Ivy: I think I've come up with an even stronger potion! Those celestial shards you made, can I see one?
Ruler: Sure...
Ivy: Just gonna add this in here and...*poof*
Ruler: Whoa! Look at that glow...
Ivy: Perfect! The Celestial Potion recipe has been cracked!


Part 5:
Ruler: Alright so lots of strange things have stared happening as these stars align. I wonder if there's anything else we can find to strengthen the Moon Crystal.
Ivy: Oh, look at the Pond over there!
Ruler: What is that?
Ivy: It looks like...Moon Beams. Quick...go grab me a bottle! We'll catch some and use them on the Moon Crystal!
Ruler: Wait -- catch Moon Beams?
Ivy: Yeah, haven't you ever caught a Moon Beam before?
Ruler: Can't say that I have...
Ivy: Well, there's a first time for everything!


Part 6:
Ruler: Hey, Old Thomas.
Old Thomas: Hello there, Young Ruler.
Ruler: Any sightings of the Alicolt?
Old Thomas: Not yet, but I have seen many trails of Star Dust in the night sky. I feel one must be nearby. It is quite exciting.
Ruler: Sounds like there's lots of neat stuff up there.
Old Thomas: Care to take a look?
Ruler: Sure! Wow! How beautiful.
Old Thomas: Our world is tied closely to the stars, which is why their alignment is affecting the kingdom. They are almost fully aligned, we had better get the Moon Crystal in working order.


Part 7:
The Baron: What is this hideous thing you've built in the middle of my kingdom?
Ruler: What? The Moon Crystal?
The Baron: Whatever it is, it's taking up valuable space! Don't think you're going to get by building such a structure without paying the proper taxes.


Part 8:
Ruler: The Moon Crystal is getting more powerful by the minute!
Ivy: I think it's going to need some star power though.
Ruler: Star power?
Ivy: The stars hold a very special power, enough to summon something like the Alicolt. Let's see what magical things we can find in our own kingdom! Then we canmake the Moon Crystal powerful enough to summon it here!


Part 9:
Ivy: Ruler! I've got it!
Ruler: What is it Ivy?
Ivy: Hot Peppers!
Ruler: Huh?
Ivy: The thing missing from my recipe was Hot Peppers! But I made something much greater than a potion.
Ruler: Whoa! What is that?
Ivy: It's a Star Fragment! Just what we need for the Moon Crystal!


Part 10:
Old Thomas: The stars have finally aligned, Young Ruler. If we add the finishing touches, we'll be able to summon the Alicolt to our kingdom. I think the last thing we will need is more Moon Stone. The powerful stone can focus the power of the Moon Crystal's magic.
Ruler: You got it, Old Thomas!

The end. :)

Chase the stars to the moon and back, and bring home the galaxy’s most prized creature! Only the most kind and attentive of souls can ever hope to see this celestial being’s grace. Listen for the softest hoofsteps, and search for the slightest sparkle! These things will surely lead the way to your new friend…

I had the same experience, i got 6 stardust in 8 chops, built the crystal and since then have had 0-2 stardust per tree.

So maybe the drop rate decreases drastically after you build the crystal.

I participated in the desert event, and managed to complete all but the final section, but it was clearly going to be impossible for me to reach level 10 and complete the event, even if I played round the clock.

I'm level 23 now. Is it actually possible to complete this, or should I just chill out and wait till I'm at a higher level to try the events? Will the prize horse actually do anything, or will it just be decorative?

Thanks!

So I got the first 6 star dust without any problem, built my tower, and since, no star dust. After about 25 energy and a force close, nada. Is it a glitch?!?!

Most of these ramp up pretty hard once you're about half way through all the quests and seem impossible. It is possible, but I'm pretty sure it won't be easy...if that helps at all.

From the pic it looks like the Alicolt will have a chance to drop Luminessence, Jewels, Silver,...not sure what else.

Have water (0/20)
Collect moondust (0/1)
Craft Celestial Shard (0/1)

To craft the shard, you need 6 stardust (from trees), 6 moondust (from mushroom patches), 20 jewels. Takes 2 hrs.

What is the collection time for the Moon Flower?

Aargh. Got the goal to visit Ivy so visited her and then the game reset and it shows 0 visits but 12 hours till I can revisit. I hate these glitches.

Also aren't we going to ever have any more monster hunts. If that is the case my beast and display was a waste of gems!!!

If it's got a timer, that means it's a resource item not decor. Hopefully, it will drop the star dust needed but I'm guessing it's not a guarantee either, just like the moon flower.

Yep. Chopping trees. :(

Yellow acer 3/8 and 4/8 (or 10)
Red acer 4/10
White birch 0/10
Blythewood 0/8
Oak 2/8
Aspen 2/6
Crab apple 2/10

It might depend on which trees you were chopping

I bought a Moon Flower because it is pretty, but 3 collections have yielded zero Star Dust.

*My Recommendation: Do not buy the flower if you do not want it for decoration.*

5 collections from Moon Flower and still no Star Dust. Mods please ask team to fix the drop rate.

I chopped a Willow and 1 1/2 Pine trees and only got 6 Star Dust. That is 25 energy for only 6 Star Dust.
Mythic Mushrooms haven't dropped any Star Dust. Red mushrooms haven't dropped Star Dust.

I have chopped 2 Coconut trees (20 energy) and received XP, Coins and Wood. Again, no Star Dust! Don't wast your time watering a Coconut tree!

13 mushroom circles out(twice around) & 1 drop of moon dust each time. But did get 1 from the Mythic Mushroom. Probably won't be everytime either.

Storm8 why doesn't the moon flower drop dust on every collection. I spent gems thinking it would drop every collection because it didn't state that the dust would be a rare drop. It's not worth 35 gems then, I wouldn't of bought it. Now if you sold it for $10,000 coins I could see it being a rare drop. I was thinking of getting the moon rock, now I'm thinking not. You should really put chance of dropping dust. 35 gems for purple petals is crazy when you can buy the rocket for 500 coins.

Star dust seems to only come from chopping trees. Oak 3/8, Big Willow 4/10. The star potion we need to make takes 40 wood, so at least it won't all go to waste.

Darn, I checked Ivy's place before I read the thread; it seemed like a good place to find star dust. It is NOT!

If you're not at the part to collect rocks you won't get them yet I tried to and nada. For me the best tree for dust is the crabapple tree. The moon flower is disappointing and I hope storm 8 fixes the drops on that. These quests aren't meant to be done fast, they are energy intensive. You won't get something on every drop. That's understandable except with gem purchases.

Part IV:
Craft Celestial Potion -1
Have white petals - (checked off but probably 40)
Update Moon Crystal to Level 3

Level 3 requires:
40 white petals
12 star dust
1 celestial Potion
10 Living Wood

Celestial Potion in the Potion Shop:
40 wood
1 star potion
3 Celestial Shards

With star dust & moon dust being rare drops from trees & mushrooms, this is gonna take forever as the above items increase each upcoming level. :/ And I'm guessing there will be 10 levels of course :(
The other problem will be jewels since each shard requires 20 so that's 60 just for level 3

They have a 20 min. timer with a 50% drop rate for me. The moonstone has a 2 hr. timer and isn't worth the wait. Wish I had bought only moon flowers.

Fun experiment and a possible tip for future events for folks without a ton of energy sources... I am on Pt 2 awaiting collection #2 from Ivy, but am already upgraded on the event item to L2 while I also have 2 extra star potions and 27 star dust in inventory. How?

Since there were murmurs of a monster hunt I wanted to see if I could stockpile some energy. For the last three days, I checked in 2-3x a day collecting from my wizarding schools (net +18 energy each check in), adventures (net +5 to +45 each day) and wedding and pink alicorns (net +6 to 10 a day in total) I had 240 energy at 3:00 today and I used it growing crab apples and chopping trees.

It took some restraint to not collect from anything else for 3 days and "lose" the extra 40 each log in I would have had if I depleted my energy, but having 240 energy at the start of an event when you now know what you need to do with it.... That's far more valuable. I'll be doing that again when one challenge has ended and a new challenge is set to begin.

Really! Test these things and maybe give us more that 2 or 3 days between challenges. I know for people on higher levels the challenges make the game but for people on lower levels, we need some time to recoup between and complete some story goals.

I'm with all of you on this.
Out of 6 collects I've gotten one dust from the flower...2 collects of the rock has yielded 0.
For some reason when I read the back of the card I thought it would be a constant supply.
Not impressed, but not surprised I guess considering they were "cheap".

http://i425.photobucket.com/albums/pp332/yyzemployee/48334355-4952-4457-b950-d49e8cf491bc.png

Should atleast say -> Items (Glimmerdust/Purple Petals), then, "rare chance" to drop Star Dust...in my opinion.
If I had a way to get my gems back I would. The back info feels misleading.

I have collected from the Moon Flower at least 20 times and have not received a single Star Dust. I hope tomorrow TeamLava employees will fix this issue. For now I will not waste any more energy collecting purple petals.

On part 1 and have an issues already. I bought the moon base, collected 6 star dust and am ready to upgrade the base. However the goal hasn't acknowledged that I've bought the base. I don't want to upgrade it only to have that not register and have to start over or be stuck.

Ive rebooted the game, did nothing. So I deleted the game and downloaded it again, still didn't work.

Does it it register after you upgrade it?

That's how all events are in all games. an event doesn't 'start' when a S8 day 'starts'. That's normal.... it's also why we get told when the exact time an event finishes.

I'm checking on the drops of star dust from the Moon flower and and Moon rock.

Woohoo! Thanks SparklyOctopus!


Hey guys! Thanks for all the feedback. Moon Rock will be dropping the Star Dust 100% of the time and we've updated the additional information to Moon Flower to show that it's a chance to drop the Star Dust. Thanks everyone for your input!

I have collected twice from my Moon Flower just this past half hour and neither collection gave me star dust.

I have restarted the game. Do I need to reinstall?

Edit: I thought you meant both gem purchases would be getting 100% drops.

Indeed, and so have I. What else is new here? Isn't this what is happening every time when new items get to the market and we are to quick to trust that they will be useful? So far I have gotten 1 stardust out of 5 collections.
The drop rate from trees is better and I shouldn't have wasted my gems. Why do I fall for this every time?

Fun experiment and a possible tip for future events for folks without a ton of energy sources... I am on Pt 2 awaiting collection #2 from Ivy, but am already upgraded on the event item to L2 while I also have 2 extra star potions and 27 star dust in inventory. How?

Since there were murmurs of a monster hunt I wanted to see if I could stockpile some energy. For the last three days, I checked in 2-3x a day collecting from my wizarding schools (net +18 energy each check in), adventures (net +5 to +45 each day) and wedding and pink alicorns (net +6 to 10 a day in total) I had 240 energy at 3:00 today and I used it growing crab apples and chopping trees.

It took some restraint to not collect from anything else for 3 days and "lose" the extra 40 each log in I would have had if I depleted my energy, but having 240 energy at the start of an event when you now know what you need to do with it.... That's far more valuable. I'll be doing that again when one challenge has ended and a new challenge is set to begin.
How is this possible?

The moon dust nightmare doesn't last long. Part 5 involves collecting moon beams from ponds. About 10, if I remember correctly. Then in Part 6, we collect moon stones from animals (and raise 10 pigs). Upgrading continues to require star dust from trees but the mushrooms, ponds, and animals are only used for a short while. That's why the gem items only drop star dust.

I strongly advise against purchasing the Moon Flower for the purpose of stardust collections. I got 1 stardust out of 10 collections, that's a very bad drop rate for a gem item. Of course, this is entirely my personal opinion, however, buyer beware.

That's interesting... Remember the last tree chopping frenzy we had, the more expensive ones had *slightly* better drop rates. I planted cheapest ones today, pink crab apples and get 1-2 per tree. Might need to invest some time growing expensive trees. ;)

A couple people this time around mentioned not getting event drops from Birch trees. I swear I saw this on previous events where birch seemed to be an issue. Do you think this is just a random luck thing? (I can try and dig them up, the posts...not trees :P, if you're interested)

I use red acers almost exclusively so I've never had an issue.
Was just curious.

SpiritWind00
09-02-16, 04:20 AM
yes the birch was sadly redundant wasn't it. I would imagine they are all very similar in drops otherwise it's probably too hard to code. It's a bit like feast and famine... One player has great luck with one type of tree and another no luck at all! ;)

I'm pretty sure that the "type" means where you find it in your inventory if it's stored.

This did get me thinking...no one has mentioned different requirements for lower level players. Buying 10 pigs at 12k coins a pop could be pricey for someone at level 17. For those of us at level 50, 120k coins shouldn't be too bad. Of course, then you've got to raise them...

I haven't gotten there yet, but it sounds like we've got to buy 10 more pigs and raise them. In the past, what has registered is the last tap that takes the pig from piglet to full-grown pig. If you aren't careful and you do the final tap too soon, it won't count.

It's been mentioned before in the fora to use items as "counters" to keep track of how many taps you've done. In the case of black pigs, I put out 11 (or 10 just to be safe) items from storage (e.g., flowers) and put one back every time I tap the pigs. Once the flowers are all gone, I stop until that goal shows up. Then I finish them off.

Here ya go SW:

Part VI:
Raise pigs - 10
Collect Moon Stone -10 (from animals)
Upgrade Moon Crystal to Lv.4

upgrade:
40 moon stone
14 stardust
40 sap
20 living wood

PS: Lunar essence disappears after you give it to OT so make more before hand if you're a hoarder. At this point I don't care anymore...lol


For moonstones I tried chickens 1st and got 6 moonstones from 9 chickens....then ran out of energy.... just as I was on a roll

Wouldn't it be "GREAT" if S8 created trees to buy once, and they stay (like the flowers) then all we need to do is tap on them?

Maple tree, living tree, cherry hive, goddess tree, forest tree... I don't think they get coded to do event tree drops, though I honestly haven't tried. Would be nice, as well as something useful from trees that usually drop things most L50 folks are maxed on.

Thanks for pig info Bwunderback. Got my pigs out and writing down every collection. Maybe I should have extra in case of mistakes. Get jittery when it gets close to them becoming adult before goal prompts it.

Reminder of tip from another player... Lay out your 10 pigs with 10 patches of grass. Chop a grass each time you tap through all 10. When all the grass are gone, stop until the goal appears.

I would need extra space or fear I'd store a pig by mistake, restarting his timer! Maybe I'll try it this way instead of the grass method this time.

I like this method better because it doesn't take up extra energy, but each to their own.

Just make sure you tap the pigs before storing the flower. If you store a pig by mistake, the timer will be about the same anyway.

Good luck!

I like to buy one extra pig and use him as my 'counter', so when he transforms into an adult, I know the rest are ready

Pig taps reset to 0 when stored. No bueno.

When the challenge started it said 12 days, now is is already down to 11 days. The 4 hours between noon and 4 pm pacific time (end time of challenge) must have been counting as a day when it started.


That's how all events are in all games. an event doesn't 'start' when a S8 day 'starts'. That's normal.... it's also why we get told when the exact time an event finishes.
This might be 'normal' for s8 but that does make it right. People not on the forum don't know that it ends at 4 pm and will be mislead by almost a full day. If the challenge ended at the same time of day they start it or the clock gave hours as well, both of which are simple fixes, there would be much less confusion.

This is not a Community Event....(thank goodness). Just a regular old timed goal which S8 seems very fond of of late...lol

These type of events are called a WORLD Event (see the top of the pop-up?)

Weird... I just built the moon crystal, got the second step in the storyline. Visited ivy (1 out of 2), game froze for a second. Then had to build the moon crystal again! Got the second story again, but 0/0 on ivy's hut. Now I have to wait 12h for a new collection :(
Same thing happened to me, I collected on Ivy and got no count for it so had to wait 12 hours. It did count second time but I didn't want to wait another 12 hours for the second visit to Ivy so I used 16 gems to skip! With only 11 days to complete that's too long to wait this early in the game. I thought it was just a glitch since my board froze for a few seconds. Wasted gems!

force closing should fix this. Once you build it, the goal should clear.

I tried this before I posted that message, but didn't work then. Tried a few hours later and worked then.
However, next problem, I seem to be unable to level up the base. There is no option to upgrade when tapping the building. I assume this is because I'm on an older app version (CS: Winter). Same thing happened during the Griffin event.
