[==This season requires Level 22+, and is live from 9/15 to 9/21 @ 4pm.==]


Notes about Season 6:

* Get rid of any monsters on your board. You can tell if you have one you can't see because of the music.

* DON'T tap the troll pit!!!! Regular trolls don't drop tokens. Neither do pink skunkupines, pink alicorn, wedding alicorn, Gem horses.

* Monsters also drop their normal items in addition to the tokens

* Do the Bronze Hunter Trade if you are nearly maxed on Shield tokens so that they don't go to waste

* A Level 5 Jousting Arena will spawn a monster on every collection. Link to Jousting Arena Renovations (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?83751-Castle-Story-08-06-Update-Jousting-Arena-Renovations-(levels-4-amp-5)) thread.

*The Mythic Research Center is a new long-term goal, meaning it will be around past the current season

* The new trades will appear after you do 1 of any trade in the Trade Wagon.

* Season 6 does NOT have a main quest chain and seasonal prize.

* Season 6 DOES have the usual Daily quests - everyone on version 1.3 or higher can complete them, including Android!

* There are 3 NEW animals in the Mythic Research Center!

* The Armored Alicorn can be crafted a maximum of 4 times. Its energy table as the same as the Pink Alicorn, the Wedding Alicorn, and the Alicorns in the Baron's Game Tent - NOT the guaranteed energy from the regular Alicorn.

* The Skunkupine Statue drops SHIELD Tokens

* The Fangbeast Statue drops SWORD Tokens

* The Dire Boar Statue drops STAFF Tokens

* Princess Lorelei's Fountain has a chance to drop a TROLL Token

Information about the Daily Hunt
* The Daily hunts regenerate every 24 hours. If you do not get the daily hunt, it's only a timey-wimey thing! It will show up in your book soon!

Season 6 has both iOS and Android players sharing the daily hunt goals.
* All players
Each day you will have the chance to battle a monster to get Tokens. There are 3 types of Daily Hunts:
1. Novice Challenge - defeat 5 skunkupines or fangbeasts
2. Adept Challenge - collect from a Dead Tree to trigger a blue dire boar (30 hits)
3. Sovereign Challenge - collect from a Coin Brown Horse to trigger a purple golem (90 hits)
Note: you get multi hits on each sword hit, so a 30 hit monster might only take 20 energy.



Information about the Trade Wagon

* Cooking Camp - 99 gold tokens
* Princess Lorelei's Fountain - 2 Blue Sapphires which are 10 gold tokens each to purchase. The Fountain drops gold tokens only during monster hunts.

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

A: The drops are the same both in and out of Monster Hunt seasons. Gold tokens, staff tokens and sword tokens will drop in and out of season. Shield tokens are not a drop from the Display.

Q: Will the Ornate Locket trade stay in the trade wagon and in our quest book after the event?

Information about Princess Lorelei's Fountain

The fountain will ONLY drop tokens during the monster hunt events. After the event is over it will not drop tokens.
This is part of a quest chain that unlocks at level 22. That quest is not timed. It's here to stay, so no worries if you're not level 22 yet or don't finish it before the season is over.

Q: Where do I get the Sapphire's from?
A: The sapphires were a reward from a previous iOS only goal. The only way to get the sapphires now is to make them from gold coins in the trade wagon. The fountain takes 2 sapphires which need 10 gold coins each.

Fountain Drops during a Monster Hunt: gold troll token (for cooking camp), water, mermaid scales, orange fish, butterfish
Fountain Drops between events: water, mermaid scales, orange fish, butterfish
Note: Gold Token drop rate: it's probably about a 1 in 5 collections. It's not every time... SW

Oh I so am going to go for the armored Alicorn, that looks awesome and so protective, yet elegant ! And thank you S8 for letting us craft 4!

Any chance of making that a rule for the center with all animals and apply it to old and new??? Just a suggestion to pass along.

It would give us more to do with our coins, in turn allowing S8 to have to create less, plus all the animals we love we can create 4, being that the purple Alicorns drop is no different, it's not affecting things so much

2. Bronze Hunter Trade 3 seconds: 50 Shield Tokens -> Chance to get free "paths" for your kingdom plus resources.
3. Silver Hunter Trade 3 seconds: 50 Shield Tokens, 25 Sword Tokens -> Chance to get free "walls or hedges" for your kingdom plus resources
4. Gold Hunter Trade 3 seconds: 50 Shield Tokens, 25 Sword Tokens, 25 Staff Tokens -> Chance to get "free" towers for your kingdom plus resources and a Gold Troll Token.

As for the "resources", I've gotten things like Architect's paste, Mythic Essence, Royal/Fancy/Blocks & Beams/Hot Sauce, Vital Extract, et c. If you're maxed on items maybe it's not quite as exciting though but atlas there's deco.


The Token Sources - You can have a max of 120 of each of these in inventory
Shield Token - Defeat skunkupines, fangbeasts, dire boars and glimmer golems
Sword Tokens - Defeat fangbeasts, dire boars and glimmer golems
Staff Tokens - Defeat dire boars, blue dire boars and glimmer golems
Gold Tokens - Come from crafting the Sovereign Hunter Trade, Lorelei's Fountain or Beastbane

Should I be saving my golden tokens for the Mythic Research Center or get Lorelei's Sapphires to get her fountain? I've got 11 so far - 10 saved from the previous hunt.

Also, could someone check with S8 if the lvl 5 horse track and season 5 training dummy can spawn beasts, like in the previous MHs? Thank you.

Jousting arena spawned a skunkupine for me. Haven't tried the training dummy yet.


I don't have the Mystic Research Center. Any point in playing?

Yes! You can still collect gold troll tokens to get the locket, cooking camp, and cabbage hut. (Plus the MRC, if its still in your trade wagon) Plus the trades drop energy and other materials and prizes, I've gotten a topiary gate and a festive gate already today.

No luck with Lorelies fountain, and my statues won't be ready until tonight. Can we get a confirmation from S8 if they are going to be utilized during this hunt?

The Gold Hunter Trade reads that you get a gold token and a chance for tower or gate. I only got a wrought iron post, no gold token. Is it supposed to drop troll token with each trade or is it just a chance?

RevdKathy
09-15-16, 01:57 PM
Oh I am pleased to see this! Thanks to the Beastbane, I've got 58 gold tokens, and am maxed out on sword and staff tokens. I may actually accumulate enough to buy something this time. If I can get the mythic centre I'll have a use for the tokens between hunts.

As an android player I'm not sure whether I prefer the hunt as a daily challenge or getting the whole lot at once.

I have it listed as locked as well (under Buildings), but I also have the option in my Trade Wagon (way down at the bottom of the list after the Cabbage Hut) for purchase with Gold Troll Tokens...by chance, are you level 22 or over?
I don't know when the building option opens, I had gotten it last hunt.
Have you tried putting away your wagon and force closing, then re-placing it?

Edit- I was thinking, if it's your first hunt, have you gotten a gold troll token yet? Maybe the option will open once you've received your first one.

HI,

purple golem and blue dire boar are not spawning. My statues did drop tokens. I have forced closed my game several times. I am running iOS 10
I'm on Android, so I don't know if it's different but I can only spawn one of each of those (purple Glimmer & Blue Boar) per 24Hr. I think the only other way of making them pop is the Legendary Trap...might be wrong though...

Legendary Trap Info: (Trap thread here (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?90761-Castle-Update-4-15-new-in-the-market-Legendary-Trap))
Q: How much are they?
A: 25 gems each. They take 1 chop and spawn a random beast (Blue Dire Boar or Purple Glimmer Golem).

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

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

HI,

purple golem and blue dire boar are not spawning. My statues did drop tokens. I have forced closed my game several times. I am running iOS 10

Are they listed in your goal book as daily hunts? If so, make sure you don't have a beast already on your board. Then try tapping on the hunt button and it should bring you to the place needed to spawn them. Horse for the purple golem and dead tree for the blue boar.
Only one of each can be spawned per day.



EDIT: Just saw your edited post. Glad you got it working! Happy hunting.

No side goals and no reward?!? :confused:
No storyline involving Trader Troll?!? :(

Why aren't the nagas involved in this hunt?! and/or the raccoons?!
Should've been a naga statue available to go with the other three statues.

The new animals look cool but I won't be getting any cause I'm pretty over the slight variations in animals ...
New buildings or deco would've been so much better.

I visited and you don't have a hidden monster, just continue collecting and a monster will appear. They seem to come in cycles with a stretch of none appearing for a period of time and then sometimes after every collection.

I never have the music enabled. Now that I have enabled it, can anyone describe the change in music? I haven't found any monsters since I completed the 3 daily goals and have probably gone through 120 energy since then.
The music changes from sweet melodic flute music to music that's like trumpets. If there are monsters on the edge of your board, they can be hard to see sometimes.

I'v just logged on and collected from 24 horses but no purple golem,and there is no daily goal showing up in either of my kingdoms. As I'm Android yesterday was 1st time I'v had daily goals. Are they supposed to start daily at reset time or later?
if you've already had and completed your daily goals, then they will reappear in your book in 22 (or is it 24?) hours from when you first triggered the goals. You only get the golem once from horses and the blue boar once from the dead tree each day.

Thanks,I thought goals started at reset. Ok so hopefully I'll have some monsters to tackle whilst awaiting goals. Had none yet from no1 kingdom using 60 energy AND I'v enabled music to make sure I have no hidden monsters lol hopefully they'll all come at once. Thanks for your speedy reply ☆

I'm not sure how everyone handles the beast spawns during this event, but thought I'd mention how I do them.

Normally, (when the critter spawns you get a right swing, jab, and left swing) I cycle through different fight positions to find the one that "crits" and does more then 1 heart damage. For example I start in the middle, if it only does 1 damage, then I try right or left next in hope of doing as much damage as I can which helps me clear the critter faster.

For this event though, I tend to stick to one position (right, middle, left, doesn't matter). I don't want to find the crit or do more damage.
I want to swing as many times as I can because each swing = 1 Shield token. Since you're getting energy back on random swings anyways, it doesn't necessarily mean I'm using more energy, I'm just getting more product from extending the life of the critter by not trying to find the "crit" action button.

Sometimes it still does take off 2 or three hearts but overall I think staying to the one button method for the whole "fight" oh-so-slightly increases my Shield income.


Edit-
I don't actually know the facts of:
*do critters pop with a predetermined amount of actual hits/actions needed to slay it?(it says 30 for a Blue Dire Boar, but is it actually possible to take 30 potential hits), which would lead to the next question,
*are crits based on tap action, or tap placement?

I know most people probably just swing wildly and hope for the best which is probably way more fun then how I do it, but was just curious if anyone else has a different method to their madness.

I do like you do.. I try everything to make the critter last as long as it can.. maybe even stopping for awhile.. but I try to get the max outcome of tokens. Lets say I fight him 'softly and slowly' one hit at a time.. collecting the token each time before the next hit.
I try to sprone DireBoars as I consider the one who gives the most choice of tokens.. of course.. after I've finished the daily challange. :)

I never use the most right option to slay the monster, for when you're out of energy, it easily takes gems. So I only use the two left.

Guys,I am sooo excited! I missed season 5, which I had been waiting on because at the very end of season 4 I started getting dire boars. I have specifically not placed my swampy pond yet because the dire boars are so loot-y and token-y and I can get one to pop every second or third tap on a well pretty regularly.

Just this morning, I either got a bunch of energy from an Alicorn or from an adventure. I went from 6 to 20 staff tokens because of these dire boars. Bring on the hunt!

Definitely second that, even when there isn't a monster hunt, I would never tap the right option because of the gem trap. So I've developed a habit of only tapping middle or left option to slay all monsters.

Sorry back on topic... Yeah getting as many hits at a monster as possible is good as well as always making sure of how many of each token you have so you don't accidentally lose them by exceeding 120 is important too... Stop and trade first if you are getting close even in the midst of the battle.

Re: Beastbane Display
I guess we're allowed only one I as don't see this choice in my Decoration Market at the moment. I remember it was expensive but collected tokens from it everyday. Not very many GoldTokens were collected.. but yesterday as soon as it was 'live' could make many GoldTokens as all materials were stocked up and ready to use.
On the long run it was useful as always gives daily tokens whether event is live or not. Of course.. also depending if we will have other seasons of MonsterHunts in the future.

So glad this event is back!

I'm having a heck of a time spawning Skunkupines and Fangbeasts though. I know all the triggers. The Jousting Arena seems to be the only guarantee. Been planting nothing but Wheat and Sugar and collecting from my cows, pigs and flowers as often as possible but I've only gotten a couple since the start of the event. It's gonna be hard to make the Daily Hunt goals.

Woohoo on Lorelei's Fountain dropping gold tokens though! :D

I will second my post earlier... If you hit the perfect storm where dire boars are spawning but you haven't placed your swampy pond yet, DON'T!!

I finished up the 25 staff tokens and made a gold token, and already have 19 more staff tokens! In like two hours!

Before the dire boars, I was counting on and aiming for one gold token a day. Now I think I could probably do 5 or 10! Plus Lorelai's fountain has given me at least one gold token too. I am having a great hunt!

Just keep going after your wells... Short refractory period, and high spawn rate for me...

Actually I'm a little surprised it's not on sale ... maybe it will be - close to the end, like the Snake Charmer was.
(I think originally they offered a quest giving back something like 75 Gems.)

@Athena - I've been planting strawberries, cabbages and hot peppers since I use them alot anyways.
I was hoping plants with a longer grow time would have a higher chance (does anyone know if it's actually a factor or just rng?) to pop a monster (the peppers and cabbages anyways) but I'll have to see how the next few days go I guess.
I had 4 baddies pop from the 10 berries and 10 peppers...but I'm assuming it's just hit or miss.

I just barely missed that sweet spot. I'm currently in troll negotiation and just unlocked my traverse quest.
Patience and virtue go together for a reason.
But...you guys...i FINALLY got Sir Piggelsworth. Ivy dropped a golden apple for me early this am (squeal!) A bit off topic but the only reason I awoke at 3:30 am and thought to check CS is the exciting monster hunt.
Thank you all for your invaluable advice. Esp regarding NOT doing the lucky trade, saving at least 25 energy (ok 24 cuz I AM raising that adorable pig)
And killing them softly.

My favorite trick for spawning monsters is to use the quick collect method. I will collect from several cows and chickens and then pull up the control panel (iOS). I find the spawn rate is a bit better when I do it that way. I also find they seem to spawn when I'm down to just 1-2 energy. (But that may just be Murphy's law. Lol)

Early feedback: I am enjoying this one, but I am a bit disappointed there are no goals to work toward. It doesn't feel right without a goal to meet for a slayer statue or something....and I do enjoy the dialogs with the trader troll and was hoping to see her flirt with Kaz ;)

On the plus side, I'm happy with the drops from the gold trade (it's the only one I've done)....it seems like I'm getting more goodies with the trades compared to previous hunts. And I'm very happy to see the chance of gems is back!! I just got one from the gold trade, along with the gold troll token, a wrought-iron pole, mythic essence, ivy's hot sauce, vital extract, a couple of shield & sword tokens and possibly energy.

Also love the new animals....I'm replacing some 'plain' manti's with the new ones. Thanks S8 for giving the MRC a use after all.

I am so happy to finally see this event come around again. The last time it was here I was just a newbie to the game and it seems we have been waiting for so long.
Thank you SpiritWind for all your help. I love this forum
I don't seem to be getting a lot of beasts in my neighbourhood and I was sooo hoping to get enough Gold Tokens for the MRC this time around but at this rate it's never going to happen. I purchased the Beastbane a while ago before coming into the hunt and so I had 12 Gold tokens and enough of the other tokens to produce 3 more.
It looks like the issue is trying to collect enough staff tokens (25) to be able to trade for another gold token. It seems that you can only get the staff tokens from the dire boar, the blue dire boar and the glimmer golem. Since we can only get one blue dire boar and one glimmer golem a day we need to rely on the dire boars for the majority of the staff tokens.
I am not getting many of the dire boars pop up in my neighbourhood. Spirit Wind I know you had another page in the forum where you mention all the monsters and where we can find them. Could you either please post this info again or the link to that page?
Greatly appreciated! Good luck everyone!

When my count is nearing the high point on the shield & sword tokens, I do a silver trade & usually get a few more staffs that way. Off hand, can't give you a specific number but seems it's usually around 3-5.

I know. Husbands! Right??

Personally, I'm going for the MRC. I'd much rather have something that I can keep using to craft new creatures. A second hut wouldn't be too valuable to me since I haven't been too impressed with the prizes in the Baron's Tent for several months. But that's just me!

Sounds like this hunt is going well! Thanks for the feedback and for the fun posts - our poor hubbies, maybe they should start a support group for absent wives who talk about strange mythical creatures! :)

I'm quite liking this hunt as I've been taking it casual which I think my boyfriend is glad about lol (no setting my alarm every 3 hours waking him :rolleyes:)

Is my Princess Lorelei's fountain supposed to dropping tokens? I'm only getting water, scales and couple dollars.

Just got it right after the Hunt started .. And no tokens so far. Or is it a random thing?
The first page says it's supposed drop token during monter hunts

I know my request probably got lost on the first page but just in case and if others agree it could be passed along, I feel all animals past and current should have a four limit cap from the center. Not only would it give us the players more to make, it would slow things down for the game developers. I know things went crazy last monster hint with animals and how many and what they do, but if this is clearly stated like the new Ali I feel it would be a wonderful addition to our kingdoms as I would love four of each to have and use.

Just my two cents

Re: Beastbane Display
I guess we're allowed only one I as don't see this choice in my Decoration Market at the moment. I remember it was expensive but collected tokens from it everyday. Not very many GoldTokens were collected.. but yesterday as soon as it was 'live' could make many GoldTokens as all materials were stocked up and ready to use.
On the long run it was useful as always gives daily tokens whether event is live or not. Of course.. also depending if we will have other seasons of MonsterHunts in the future.

I thought with that whole fight when they returned stuff they said it would not give tokens during off season. Did people continue to collect and will they? I'm assuming no gold? Did it stop when you reached your 120 mark if you collected off season? That whole debacle confused me and I was one who returned but would get it if I continued to get coins daily.

My Beastbane Display has been giving me tokens outside of the monster hunts. In fact, for a while there, it seemed as if I was getting a gold token almost every collection. That is how I got my Mythic Research Center. It is a must-have.

Besides the fangbeast and sunkupine. Do the other 2 monsters show up though out the day? It seems the only time they pop up for me is during the daily quest. And I could really use more staff tokens.

Interestingly, the gold tokens I am receiving from the fountain and the trades are NOT appearing on my screen. They are showing up in my inventory though. So Lorelei's fountain is giving gold tokens sometimes, but I need to look in inventory to know if I received one. I see the fish,water, etc. pop up, but i don't see the token.

If someone is tracking prizes from the trades, I received a wedding wall, a festive gate and a stone gate as well as the spooky tower I reported yesterday.

Meme1098 is right, you just get the purple golem and blue dire boar just once a day. But if you can fight ordinary dire boars, you will get more staff tokens. They seem to consistently drop one at the end of a battle. Mine are coming frequently from mushroom patches. Others say ponds and wells, but I have seen zero dire boars there. Good luck and happy hunting!!

The dire boar drops staff tokens at the end of the battle. Dire boars spawn from harvesting strawberries, cocoa, glimmer bulbs and cabbages. They also spawn from ponds, wells, rock croppings, buildings, mushrooms and the goddess tree. Hope this helps

Loralei's fountain does not drop the regular tokens (sword, shield and staff), but, during hunting season only, it does have a rare chance of dropping the gold troll tokens.

The beastbane display drops a gold troll token (rare), staff tokens, or sword tokens daily. It only drops tokens that can be used in the MRC (so no shield tokens) and it does drop them in and out of monster hunting seasons, thus making it possible to use the MRC between hunts. And yes, it does give the black banner if you are maxed on the drops. I was maxed on sword tokens at the start of this hunt.

this is the strangest monster hunt i ever had...

i dont have a monster on my board.
spent a lot of energy on tapping stuff and RARELY does a monster pop up. ( all my mini ali's and 3 white ali's ) i know over 80 energy was spent the other day with no monsters showing their faces.
today was slightly different , i did manage to complete 2 of the daily quests. troll and the blue boar.
used 2 white alicorns / all my minis/ 2 wizard schools/ free energy, on tapping and nothing lol.
after the event i am sure all the monsters that are in hiding now will pop up on every other tap like normal...

on a positive note, the new alicorns are really nice!!!!!

Thanks so much Meme. Guess it's time to pull all those ponds out of storage dust them off and wait for the boars to come visit! Also planting lots of strawberries, cocoa, glimmer bulbs and cabbage. I'll try some of those bronze trades too! Love this forum!

09-17-16, 09:54 AM
I need some clarification on the storyline please. Is everyone attempting to trigger boars and trying to repel trolls? Or is it just where I am in the story? On the plus side, I DO badly need troll essence but I can persue
that at my leisure. It would seem odd that I'm trying to form an alliance with Kaz but continue to fight his people.
It's fun tho. It kinda mirrors the US elections in my head. (Hey....any thoughts about a castle story HAWK ? Lol)
I think I'll read the character thread while waiting for energy.

To start I didn't know you could get a second hut, so if that's a possibility it's on my list, but I don't regret hut first in any way. Every few months I have gotten a different Ali from it and that alone was worth the cost. I never got deco, only Ali's a dragon and something else that gave drops. I don't mind going a month not getting anything because the following month if I like 2 things I'm safe to get them and I only get drop items so it's become a useful item.

I never did understand what people were upset about with the Beastbane Display. That thing is absolutely the best purchase I have ever made with tokens. Between hunts I have received over 40 gold tokens. Brought me up to enough to get the cabbage hut a few months ago and still enter this hunt with a bunch of them. Plus, I maxed out on staff and sword tokens so I have been able to quickly do several trades for gold tokens already this hunt. I get the whole Alicorn issue, but the display? Nope. Mine has been a great investment.

So maybe he is still worth getting. I minunderstood as no coins. If I get him I'll get him now though to at least get a few extra during the event. Shame I missed all that time but gem wise nothing lost nothing gained I suppose unless they increased his price in which that would be crummy to do on a hot topic item lol

I had the first two days of daily challenges for blue dire boar and purple golem and hunt skunkupines and fangbeasts. They always showed up in the morning. Today I still haven't seen them. I force closed. I'm on an iPad and have never had some of the trouble the iPhone players have had in past quests or games. Is there anyway to get the daily challenge to appear? I don't want to lose a day. Or is anyone's else missing these challenges today? It's well-past the time they should appear for me.

Update - my challenges finally showed up. I thought the clock started at the same time each day, but perhaps it depends on when I completed the challenges (22 hours after)? Not sure about that as the hunt 5 challenge was finished after the other two.

Big thanks for the link on this forum and your comments regarding helping me make my mind up between a second cabbage hut or the MRC.
MRC it is then!What was I thinking?!I can only suppose the hunt for ever elusive dew and hiding beasties dulled the relevant section in my CS addled brain.
I happily informed hubby of my decision today.
I am pleased to report that he is not mumbling under his breath quite as much today and the twitch in his left eye has definitely improved.
Am hoping tonight his night sweats and sleep talking will also take a turn for the better.

2) are you sure you checked the right building?
3) make sure that it is level 5

The Beastbane Display is a sword that drops tokens. I have been saving up gold tokens collected randomly from it. It has been most helpful to me to get The Mythic Research Center and other things such as Cabbage Hut. It can be placed on the board. Maybe try closing and re-opening the game. Best of luck.

I have the same issue, I can also see a Beastbane 'Sword' in my inventory with a description on the reverse "A mighty sword fashioned especially for the slaying of monsters", but there is no method of placing the object on the board. If you tap to place it, it just swivels again to reveal the description. Could it be that Beastbane 'Display' is something different?

Yes, Beastbane Display is a different item. It's on sale in the market. I can't check the current price because I bought it when it was first released. I think it cost around 400 gems.

The fight was that they said they would stop dropping coins between events, but apparently there was confusion and players like myself did not know certain coins would continue to drop, we just got that message of coins only during event which was not worth the price

So after all that B&S did he give gold out of event for some it seems. I just want to clarify before buying and making a mistake as certain coins I don't really need.

What did the players who chose to keep him get during the break? Seeing if I would buy one today as it's expensive so needs to be worth it. Staff tokens or gold would be worth the 400 gemfor me. The others I get right away from the first three goals.

Since April I've gotten over 30 Gold Troll Tokens and 120 of both Sword and Staff. Gold tokens alone cost 50 gems a piece. As long as hunts keep coming then I think it's worth getting. To me it's already paid for itself with the amount of free deco (special expired holidays decos!) and crafting mats I've gotten (from the trades) with my stockpiled tokens alone.
On top of all that, being only my second season it has helped me fast track to getting my first Trade Wagon building.

Edit - If you haven't got it yet, I'd suggest seeing if it goes on sale a day or two before event ends...could happen.

Personally, I would go with The MRC. The cooking camp cooks flour, sugar, simple feast, breaded fish, noodles, pasta, stew, hearty feast, Ivy's hot sauce, spicy feast, cake, fish sandwiches, sundae, sweet feast, Mercury feast, chocolate, ice cream, butterfish, and catfish soup. To me that is much the same as the other kitchens. The MRC gives tokens all the time that can be used to get specialty items. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the offer, I know something fishy happened with it to offer a refund, however so many posts were deleted that it is hard to put the pieces together and in the process I became ill losing my memory, so I will just drop the issue and with a confirmation that it does drop coins/gold out of season, and I can get that confirmation from you or a moderator, then I will gladly go ahead and purchase it with hopes of more help from it during these events.

This feels like a catch up type hunt for people like me, which is ideal. I don't have any of the wagon buildings, as I've only been playing for a year. I do have the Beastbane display, so I was maxed out on sword and staff tokens. This is giving me the chance to get the mrc with a bit of luck, and use all those tokens. Then I can create animals as I go afterwards.

And I agree, it's one of the best purchases I've made.

Honest indian I have tried reading stuff but there is so much to read, I tried search and advanced search but again so much to try and take in.

Question1. Why do I never get any Trolls, Skunkupines or Fangbeasts to fight? The later two are for the Novice Challenge and I have seen exactly One over the challenge time. The Trolls are for the Caz's Five quest and it has been sitting there for weeks.

Question2. What do I use the 'golden fleece' drop for? One dropped when I was in the Trade Wagon!!!!! Maybe and I cannot find a use for it.

Do you have a monster on your board if so that's why, trolls don't count for monster hunts you don't want trolls for monster hunts. The fangbeast I go for instead of skunks I get from cows, chickens and pigs.

2 you can check in the hub under inventory Golden Fleece it will let you know what it's for. I can't remember.

No worries, it can get a little overwhelming, I'm sure SW will move this over once she's on. Normally I'd try the Help Me (http://forum.storm8.com/showthread.php?91264-Help-Me!-Stuck-on-a-goal-or-have-a-game-question-Post-here!) thread

Thats got the Trolls out of the way, thank you. Now to where do I go to ask why no skunkupines or fangbeasts for the Novice Challenges? I am not keeping other monsters on the board but I will try the chickens, chickens, pigs route again.
Now to attempt to find the golden fleece info again. I did try the 'inventory' but all I got was The most luxurious cloth in the kingdom.

Edit. Taken this fleece question to the 'questions' Thread so hopefully it is now in the right place.

Hi All! First time post - long time lurker here though...
As with Spanisheyes1, I cant seem to spawn Skunkupines, Dire boars or Fangbeasts! I've burned over 400 energy in the last few days and have found 3 skunkupines. I've been planting/harvesting as much wheat, tomatoes, corn, sugar as I can (i have 30 plots) and also collecting from cows/chickens pigs. Its all great for my inventory, but very frustrating! I am trying to collect a few gold coins to get 2x Loreleis Saphire, it doesn't seem to matter what I do but nothing is generating for me!
Anyone else experiencing similar?

You're doing pretty much everything you can do.
There's a few tips on the first page about using your level 5 Jousting arena and things like that but i think a lot of people run into dry spells.
I've gotten 3 or 4 spawns from my Sparkling Mines and Lumber Mills (incase you haven't been collecting from those) and some one mentioned ponds, mushrooms and wells as a decent Boar spawners but it's just a hit or miss thing :(
Hopefully your luck improves!

Edit- I hate to even type this, but just incase, always double check you don't have a monster parked anywhere, they can be sneaky ninjas hiding in a corner or map edge!

Edit of edit! - Speak of the devil, just clicked my Hatchery and a Fangbeast spawned, so Hatcheries and Stables in the spawn pot as well I guess.

**SW - Can you maybe add a spot for these buildings as confirmed triggers? (rather then "buildings" or in addition to)**
Just incase some people stop tending their kingdom to focus on the hunt, atleast these few are spawn resources. I'm browsing previous seasons now to maybe come up with any more info but the majority is below..

Post 10 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?78732-Nugget-5-Beasts&p=1058561&viewfull=1#post1058561) and Post 38 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?78732-Nugget-5-Beasts&p=1067384&viewfull=1#post1067384) (and a few posts here and there) in the Beast Nugget 5 shows:

Dire boar spawn possibilities - All Town and Royal (except Towers/Spires/Barracks - tbconfrmd), Character Houses (except Greselda & Kaz tbconfrmd) Goddess Tree, Multi-coloured Hedge, Tablet of Tabernum, Magic Garden, Deep Mine, Sparkling Mine, Sawmills, Troll Vault, Faerie Bulb. Not sure about Royal Manor.
Fangbeast spawn possibilities - Hatcheries, Stables, and Farmhouses

DRY it is positively ARID with no rainfall ever down at Eyes1 kingdom. I just tried the animal route and still nothing. So none in buildings, none in animals and none in growing plots. My jousting area is only a lower level and no chance of upgrading until I find more elusive gold blobs which at my rate might be the 12th of never.

My goals are exactly the same as yours PJB and my success rate is about the same, as in zitch, nada, nil with the lesser monsters cannot beat your 3 skunkupines unless Nil beats 3.

Humour is difficult to write especially across countries so I hope mine came across.

If we're dreaming of critters I'd like a phoenix before a peacock. It would be company for the fire animals. Besides, peacocks make a terrible noise!

Yes! A PHOENIX!
Amazing idea! :cool:
I want one

And yes peacocks make a hell of a racket :eek:

Don't know if this helps, but I always find that variety is the spice of life. When I can't get any fang beasts or skunkupines, I try for dire boars. Once I get a dire boar, the fangbeasts and skunkupines start popping up. It's almost as if the game resists too many critters of one kind.

I've found that, in my kingdom, the monster seem to spawn when I'm down to 4 energy (or less) so my sweet spot to start trying to spawn is at about around 11. (If I'm able to check in regularly) they never seem to appear when I have energy to spare. This is excluding the quest monsters. I tend to store all my energy for them.
I'm still wondering if the final monster for the anniversary jousting arena quest will drop tokens.
I'm crafting the final 3 faerie elixirs.
I'll let you guys know.

I have nothing in my Trade Wagon but the cooking camp. Statues are not dropping coins. Beasts are not dropping tokens. Beastbane not dropping tokens. The new creatures are in the MRC but what's the point without being able to do trades? I've force closed, put Trade Wagon in and out of storage and nothing's triggering functionality.

I have gotten a Spooky Gate, as well as Spooky Towers. Didn't have these before, and I love them. I have also received Festive walls and towers.
Have been collecting from Princess Lorelei's Fountain and have never gotten anything of worth. Just now I got a gold token. Yay!
Keep plugging away, everybody. All good things come to those who wait.

The dire boar drops staff tokens at the end of the battle. Dire boars spawn from harvesting strawberries, cocoa, glimmer bulbs and cabbages. They also spawn from ponds, wells, rock croppings, buildings, mushrooms and the goddess tree. Hope this helps

Used 30 energy on strawberries, mushrooms, ponds and goddess trees and got no dire boars :(

Personally, I would go with The MRC. The cooking camp cooks flour, sugar, simple feast, breaded fish, noodles, pasta, stew, hearty feast, Ivy's hot sauce, spicy feast, cake, fish sandwiches, sundae, sweet feast, Mercury feast, chocolate, ice cream, butterfish, and catfish soup. To me that is much the same as the other kitchens. The MRC gives tokens all the time that can be used to get specialty items. Hope this helps.

Thank you. I was leaning toward the MRC, but it helped to have your input, too.

I can confirm that if anyone is at the point in the game where you are battling monsters for the second anniversary, the purple golem does drop tokens. (Makes sense right?) I don't know if that helps anyone else, but it definitely helped me today.
I know I'll be unable to level my arena to 5 (lack of adamant)
My goal is to get both sapphires AND the locket, but at this rate, it's doubtful I can achieve that.
I don't think I should do any trades because I've never maxed out to 120.
Thoughts and advice ALWAYS welcome...
