I want to especially thank BarfDump, federerGOAT, netwiz3, kattkrazie for recording the information in my absence.

[==Update requires app update to Version 1.5.3 on iOS, Level 15/17+, and will be available to start beginning x/x. Once started, you will have 10 days to complete the event. The event will automatically start on x/x.==]

What happens when an event finishes?? Click here to take you to a post called How Events Work in the thread called How To Use The Hub. (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?75916-How-to-use-the-Hub-to-find-information-and-ask-questions&p=1190378&viewfull=1#post1190378)



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

Hey everyone!

Sorry I've been fairly inactive recently @__@ Wanted to pop in and let you all know we received your feedback and have investigated the tuning for the final few days of this event.


We'd thought that a particular setup would bypass the 20 limit on virals, however we've now confirmed that this is not the case. Because of that, we're halving the Deckhands requirements for both level buckets.
I cross-checked the calculations some of you have posted against the tuning sheet for this event. While I can't post the specific actuals, I can confirm that the average droprate for Crumbs is a bit higher than one per adventure (though it's certainly possible to only ever get one on every adventure), and that the Parrot Feeder drops a minimum of 3 Parrot Food per collect, with a possibility for 4 or 6. (Day 9 and Day 10 are difficult to complete without spending gems to be sure, but once the Deckhands fix goes out it should not be impossible.)


I'll update again when I receive confirmation that the Deckhands tasks have been updated!

Thanks,
sourp4tch

I've just received confirmation that this fix has been pushed live. Thank you everyone for your feedback! We'll continue to monitor things from here :)

Do you craft between goals? Helps to shoot for 5 of each item then more as you can.

I never leave any of my crafting buildings idle. Kitchens are constantly making items for meals & meals, workshops are constantly crafting whatever I'm not maxed on, etc.

Can anybody read the first ingredient to making the black cloth in your Workshop? I tried sorting my inventory by quantity of items but still couldn't see which of my 99 qty items it was.(I'm guessing blue or purple dye).

you can sort inventory!! wonder why we don't have that option on IOS (least i don't)..after years of playing, looking for things in inventory totally drives me crazy, i quit re-decorating like every couple months because of it.

the ingredient for black cloth is definitely Coal, it's the only thing i have 103 of.

If you do... Do not collect from it until told to... Sometimes this works, sometimes not based on how they set up the goal... Sometimes it's send 3 adventures(in which case it wouldn't count the first one) Other times it registers on the adventure coming back. And yet another option is it will return certain ingredients only when you reach the goal that asks for that ingredient.

Don't get hung up on the Dew quite yet... It's very possible/likely if there is a goal it'll only be to get the building to level 5. All buildings got level 6 as a part of the Dew "upgrade" and the new tavern probably has level 6 because of that.

But by all means continue to collect Dew(at least from Ivy Hut) and make the special beams and blocks but don't use them to upgrade anything until S8 advertises a goal requiring it... The Dew is just too hard to come by to upgrade the "wrong" building and it would take years to Max out the new Beams/Blocks.

pirate tavern level 1 : 440 Coins per 4 hours

level 2 needs 4 bone, 3 simple glue, 2 ea. fancy block and beam [gives 484 CP4H]

Level 3 needs 10 jewels, 1 ea royal block/beam, 3 simple glue. gives 528 CP4H

level 4 needs 2 ea royal block/beam, 20 silver ore, 2 super glue. gives 572 CP4H

Level 5 needs 2 ea enchanted beam/block, 6 grits, 2 super glue. gives 616 CP4H

Level 6 needs 2 ea spellbound block/beam, 10 hearty stew, 4 super glue. gives 660? CP4H

So glad I didn't use my 2 spellbound blocks and beams I have in my inventory yet as it would have taken ages to get them, Unless a goal involves getting dew for them as a goal reward.

If this really requires us to use spellbound beams and blocks then I'm out. I have been collecting spellbound dew since it came out and still don't have enough for the beams and blocks.

I've already started disliking that dew and have taken to calling it spellbound dew dew in my head.

Please don't make us level it to six!!!

Spellbound is storyline stuff. No way they would require that in a timed event

Looks like to level up the pirate tavern, you will need 2 each.

meme1098
09-22-16, 06:23 PM
So you think that it will be required to go to 6 in this event. People will forget where their minds are if thats the case

Maybe lower levels will get a break on leveling the tavern. Sometimes happens with storybook goals. I hope so for their sake as it's so frustrating to get so far, then something impossible becomes a requirement & they have to give up.

For the Pirate Flag in the workshop: It is definitely coal. When I open it shows I have 29/10 (29 the value of what I have, 10 is what is needed). The only item in my inventory that shows 29 is coal. I wonder if we will need banners too?

Not a gripe, just an fyi.
For Chapter 2, don't bother using gems if you're looking for a second compass as souvenir.
I put one to craft in the workshop and spent 30Gems to skip.
Once the craft finished it doesn't appear in your inventory since you've passed that part.

I do a lot of collecting from flowers to make Faerie elixir during these times events for extra energy. I have made 3 spellbound beams and 2 spellbound blocks. I think I am pretty close to my next one too. I haven't found them all that hard to come by.

Upgrade 2 (3 Simple Glue, 1 Royal Beam, 10 Jewels, 1 Royal Beam;

ONE block OR beam. Wow. And that has been since the start of the event.

Thanks for the reply! I know that most of the information come from the wonderful players who speed up and give us a heads up, I was mostly referring to S8 and the absence of a pop-up letting us know what the goal is about and details as to when it starts/ends.

Got gold nugget from first adventure.


1st Adventure..Gold Path, Jewel
2nd Advy was just Jewel


btw it says 3 hours but its actually 2.5 hours


You know what 'they' say - impatience is a virtue!!!

The pirate adventure has pretty good drops. I got a treasure hunter kitty, gold path, dragon hoard, and jewels from my first adventure. So, yay!!


My first adventure dropped 5000 coins:(

1St Adventure drop from 1 kingdom...Gold path
1st Adventure drop from other kingdom.... A treasure hoard decoration ( non chopable) 4x4 looks nice. 2nd drop....gold path


1st Drop from Treasure cat... fur,silver,coins, there was something else at the back which thought looked like energy but can't be sure.

Yes. You should go ahead and build it and have it to at least level 2 before you reach chapter 4. That way it will be ready when you get to that task.

Heads up to hoarders. You can't purchase an extra compass in the workshop with gems like you could in the past. Not sure why S8 removed this option since we spend gems to get these in our inventory.

That glitched! I clicked "Listen" and got sent to the tavern. Clicked the tavern, and it didn't register. Now I have to wait 8 hours to try again.

My Kingdom has so much else going on right now I'm not going to make too much effort at this rate!

I was waiting for one of my red taverns to time out, while the pirate tavern was ready to tap.....it worked. So, looks like there's going to be plenty of different kind of luck, again. Sorry that you had to wait another 8 hrs.

I got the piracy guide, but it had a pop-up saying it was a reward for completing the task. I also got a cartographers desk for completing part 2.....deco only.

All I've gotten from the adventures so far is gold paths. 3 adventures, 3 gold paths. (And the guide book I guess) :(


Ps. I'm really hoping that SW is ok and enjoying a wonderful vacation somewhere pirate free. Although I'm starting to fear the entire staff and all mods are somewhere aboard the Black Pearl.....it's certainly unusual for there to be no activity at all from anyone! :confused:

Yes, definitely different kinds of luck. The collection from my first adventure was great. However, each collection afterwards only drops jewels and one gold path. So the Treasure Hunter Kitty is apparently ultra rare. Sorry to get everyone's hopes up.

Based on the steps listed in previous posts, purchasing the tavern is not part of the goals, but collecting from it is. I chose to purchase it early and level it up to level 2 so that it will be ready to collect from immediately when I reach that task in chapter 4.

Ps. Kattkrazie has already posted that the tavern will still work if it's above level 2. I chose to stop at level 2 until I know what resources I'll need for the rest of the chapters. Don't want to use something I'll regret not having later. Lol

jaymieb2
09-23-16, 10:20 AM
Don't get hung up on the Dew quite yet... It's very possible/likely if there is a goal it'll only be to get the building to level 5. All buildings got level 6 as a part of the Dew "upgrade" and the new tavern probably has level 6 because of that.

But by all means continue to collect Dew(at least from Ivy Hut) and make the special beams and blocks but don't use them to upgrade anything until S8 advertises a goal requiring it... The Dew is just too hard to come by to upgrade the "wrong" building and it would take years to Max out the new Beams/Blocks.

Wow! Good catch! Thank you! I didn't upgrade because I was out of super glue. (Had 2 each Spellbound beams and blocks). Upgrading could have caused a disaster down the line!

I hope she's on a cruise with no wifi instead of being sick. She has definitely spoiled us rotten!

That being said, this quest is very doable. With the neighbor requests being on Day 8, there shouldn't be too much of a problem getting them back in time. Collecting 25 parrot food (2 hr. timer) will be difficult unless the parrot feeder drops multiple food each time. I used gems, so don't have the answer to this. Will let y'all know after I collect from it.

Feel free to take from post 4 and add to post 3 and then I'll delete it from 4... The closer to the top we get it the better IMHO. :)

I did add a couple edits like the Piracy Guide was given at the end of Chapter 2 and added the BOLD note telling people to they don't need to upgrade the Pirate Tavern to Level 6 so we have no more complaints about the Dew Drops.(If only it was read before posting) ;-)

Can someone check my math? Because I'm thinking S8 gave us another impossible task.

Let's say a player plays from 7am to 10pm. That's 15 hours a day with unlimited access to the game.

On day 8, we have to do 40 neighbor requests. Let's say everyone has awesome neighbors and they get 21 on day eight (20+Stormie) and the remaining 19 respond immediately after the S8 day rolls over into day nine. Then you can craft the 8 hour pirate ship right after you wake up. So the ship is finished at 3pm on day 9. Have the first adventure waiting and collect that. Send and collect from adventure 2 and 3, it's now 8pm. The 4th adventure isn't ready until after you are in bed.

Wake up on day 10, collect adventure 4 at 7am and adventure 5 at 9:30am. You're done with combining clues at 7:30pm. You immediately buy and place the Parrot Feeder. At 9:30pm you make your first collection. Let's get extra wishful thinking here and say that drops all the food you need the first time. You have the final adventure waiting to collect and finish at 9:30pm, 30 minutes before you go to bed on the final day.

So, this is possibly if, and only if:
(1) You have awesome neighbors and get responses right away and overnight, without having to send out any new requests in day 2 (or 3).
(2) You plan ahead and always have an adventure waiting to collect. (not doing so adds 5hrs to the timeline)
(3) You do all the previous days on time so that you start the day 8 tasks on day 8.
(4) The Parrot Feeder drops everything we need in one collection.

I think we all know that there is no way all four of those conditions are accurate.

Solientus
09-23-16, 01:09 PM
Me too. At least it is not a day 10 requirement! We can do it.
Well, I was just thinking...

On Chapter 8:

*On Day 8 - get 21 Deckhands
*On Day 9 - get the remaining 19
*build the ship (8hour build)
On Chapter 9:

*Should still be on Day 9 moving into Day 10- get one crumb from Adventure (3 hrs)
*need 4 crumbs more will take 12 hours (if only one per adventure @3hrs per)
*combine the 5 crumbs (10hr craft)
On Chapter 10:

*Will be well into Day 10 probably, buy feeder
*depending on Feeder drops, yet to be reported, but average of 2 per collect every 2hrs (need 25 total), need 12 collects = 24hours
*send out another adventure

Unless less Deckhands needed
Unless more then 1 Crumb per Adventure
Unless more parrot food then estimated per collect

...this isn't looking good. I'd love some additional feedback about numbers. Am I missing/miscalcualting something? I think the main thing is the feeder drops, if it ends up dropping something like 10-15 per collect, then that's a bit different. It'd be tight but doable...ish.

Edit - @ Silver I think we're both in disbelief, Ill have to think on this some more....and have drink maybe

I do hope SW is ok, but it does not explain why all week we really have not had much postings from any mods period. Slight postings which left us open ended regarding those who did not get Monday monsters from other mods and no one to come and help out here when SW is away. Thankfully everything has been relatively glitch free and self explanatory but I feel someone should have stepped up if SW couldn't.

Ps still waiting hopelessly about Monday but I guess they hope we just will go away about that with a new quest.

Good luck everyone with the chapter book. These are my least favorite but looking at all 10 chapters I think this one I can actually manage easily. I do hope the steps are easier for lower levels, so don't give up just because you see what the steps are for a level 50 player. We all know from past events lower levels have different requirements. Hang in there!

Happy weekend and I how everyone is able to enjoy the weekend and not stress with the event :)

Usually the farmhouse is the easiest/quickest to rebuild if necessary if you have built a lot of those for past goals so sell one of those if you have level 1 one.

Day 5 would start on the 5th day of the event, so you'd wait 2 days instead of one for the next chapter.

Just a note to those of you freaking out about time:
The chapters don't have to be finished in a day, you just can't start the next til previous one is finished.

S8 usually give us 2 weeks for a story event so if you start on day one and do the first 7 chapters daily, you will still have about a week complete the final 3.

Hope this helps. 

Edit... Just looked at the story and it says 8 days left so S8 may be shortening the time on this one.

Go ahead and freak out LOL

Katt proved the last isn't accurate for sure... So somewhere along the way, we must need gems: either to skip the "request 40 from neigbors", or to speed up the parrot-food-thingie.

Does anyone know how much skipping the neighbor-request costs? And how much speeding the parrot-food-thing costs?

I always prepared for challenges by stocking up and not using anything remotely difficult to get unless I had 75 in stock. This included every crop that takes more than an hour to grow, but especially things like living wood, silver and anything golden. If it is an easy to obtain material like a short time growing crop, wood or stone, then have at least 50 in stock before using for story line. When I had 20 of the simple glue, beams and blocks then I'd make the next level up and keep it in storage, and so on. When you have a lot of glue, beams and blocks of all varieties in storage you are better able to level up any specific building that is required. Then you will be better prepared for timed events.

It costs 400 gems to skip the neighbor requests. However, I was able to get the 20 requests back in a few hours, then spent 200 gems to skip the 2nd day of requests. It costs 150 gems to skip the parrot food. That was a mistake on my part, because had I known that the feeder drops 3 food each time, it would have only taken 64 gems to just speed up the parrot feeder 8 times. It costs 8 gems to speed it up.

You did such a good job, I'm going to attempt to just delete all text and pics from my post and refer everyone to yours. :-)


Hey guys

Thank you for putting everything on first two posts!

Seriously, where is SW

Still having trouble collecting dew from flowers. Any suggestions?

Just to re-iterate; There is absolutely no need for Spellbound Dew/Block/Beams for this event and you do not need to upgrade the Pirate Tavern to level 6... This has been confirmed by our resident trailblazer Katt. :)

Haha don't worry, if she was kidnapped, Kooky and I would be the first to sound the bells and get you all to join in the search party!

Btw You all have been great posting steps and helping each other along, wonderful to see everyone pitching in.
Is there any way you can talk to the team and have them drop the number of requests required to 20. Also up the drops with the parrot food to say 5 otherwise as the math has been stated. It's going to be impossible to complete.

Should I go on the quest before it asks me to to collect supplies or will nothing drop until the first prompt ? These timed quests give me anxiety I always feel behind if I'm just waiting for the next day

You can go ahead and send the Adventure out but there is no reason to collect from it until Goal 3 of chapter 2. It will speed up/check off that goal as soon as you collect from the waiting adventure.

Can you drop a post in this thread? I can help you to submit the request. Just so I don't miss your post due to high traffic, send me a private message (http://forums.storm8.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=139069) with the link if you can. Also bear in mind that there's limited support from S8 over the weekend, I can't promise I'll get a reply sooner but I will try. :)

A tiny bit of good news - the parrot feeder has dropped 4 food for my last 2 collections. So it's possible that you will only need to collect from it 6-7 times.

For anyone who uses gems strategically, the best use of 80 gems would be to start chapter 8 immediately after finishing chapter 7. You could then send out the neighbor requests and have 2 days to get them in before having to tackle chapter 9. I know it's early for this suggestion, but I wanted to put the idea out there so you could start saving gems. Don't forget the 5 gem trade in the trade building. You don't need your gold for this quest, so you could turn it into gems.

Thanks fashion designer, I tried selling a few buildings but it still says I'm at my limit. I'll try selling farmhouses...yes, that worked, yay, Thanks for the hint ��

Katt, Thanks so much for continuing to collect from your items to gather data that is useful for the rest of us! Your efforts are definitely greatly appreciated! :)

Just a note to those of you freaking out about time:
The chapters don't have to be finished in a day, you just can't start the next til previous one is finished.

S8 usually give us 2 weeks for a story event so if you start on day one and do the first 7 chapters daily, you will still have about a week complete the final 3.


Edit... Just looked at the story and it says 8 days left so S8 may be shortening the time on this one.

Go ahead and freak out LOL

It is always 10 days from the day you start. Every chapter event has been this way since the start. But as you said you don't need a full day for certain chapters. So for example to collect from 40 neighbors that will take one full day but on the second day you may finish in a few hours to get 20 people and then move on to the next chapter which is meant for that day anyway and you catch right up to where you are supposed to be. It seems like it might not be doable when looking but thinking of it this way then it makes it more manageable.
Hope this helps. 

Am I the only one who is waiting for chapter 2 to start? I finished Chapter 1 right away and my timer said 20hrs until next chapter and I am still waiting with a little under 5 hours to go!

I know there's usually a wait time with each chapter, but I feel like my timer is going slower than usual lol especially when I see all the posts.

Thanks Ryne for popping in. It's appreciated. I don't mind spending Gems (whether free or bought) but these few Chapters at the end just don't seem doable without spending.

Just for a little balance, I enjoy the pirate theme with Halloween coming up and all. The little cartographers desk is very cute and I've already set up gnome Thurston to work in front of it! So for passing on Info's, there's good too :)

With chapter events day 1 starts based on each player pushing the start button on their own... The next day always starts at Midnight California time so it sounds like in your case you just started today instead of yesterday. That's fine and actually not a bad idea to allow you extra time to see what the next goals are to prepare for... You'll still have the exact same amount of days as everyone else.

Hope that helps!

Then you can zip right through and get "caught up". Btw I'm just now finishing chapter 2. . So you're not far behind. This forum is amazing and keep checking back in as often as you can.

Thanks for doing the math, I've been busy. I haven't had time to go through everything. I sent a pm. Hopefully we will see changes soon.

Since this goal requires so much harvesting to keep the crops up, I have parked my troll, as I usually do for such events. But, has anyone else, who does the same, noticed how much bigger his greyed out area is? Or, is this just my imagination? Check it out in my kingdom, it's huge!

My troll area was also huge. I chopped him and tried again he is better.

I agree! I don't post much but I lurk like crazy and I am so grateful to everyone who contributes here. I check the forum for everything now! Also I play every day and check in multiple times so if anyone needs a new neighbor to help out with the items feel free to send me a request!

The shipwrecked trolls in chapter 5 are cuter than cute! Wish we could keep one in our kingdoms.

Have to say this is the best Storybook event I've ever taken part in. So far no relentless chopping, harvesting or raising/tending animals. We are doing lots of different things, using a range of buildings (so no worry about losing the use of your workshop or kitchen for the whole week) and the 'visit this' levels are pretty reasonable. I haven't had to suddenly craft a load of high level blocks or beams.

Good work so far S8. It's actually fun!

Though I'm still worried about SW.

ETA. What do we need the black cloth for that we can craft? I don't see it in the goals list.

For chapter 3, goal 4 -- go on an adventure --- is that the act of SENDING knights on an adventure or COLLECTING from the end? Trying to figure if I should start an adventure now

I started the adventure before I went to bed last night, now it's 4:00am, I'll have an advantage once the 3hrs is up for goal 3 of Chapter 3. Just remember not to tap it before that time.
