5 Goals
Dialogue: Ivy: Boo! Haha, hi, Ruler! So hear me out. I just had the most spooktacular idea!
Ruler: Do tell, Ivy...
Ivy: Weeeell, so you know how we have a lot of monsters about in the kingdom?
Ruler: Yes...
Ivy: I was thinking we could throw a huge monster mash ball!
Ruler: And the monsters have what to do with this exactly?
Ivy: Well, they could come and party with USA! Maybe we could all learn to get along!
Ruler: I...am honestly at a loss for words.
Ivy: I know, right?! It's going to be bothered-tiful!
Ruler: And that's a good thing?
Ivy: Definitely! We should build a huge, haunted castle! We need space for the party!
Ruler: I guess I'll go along with this for now...
Ivy: Let's build the most grand Haunted Castle, and maybe someone special will show up!
Part 1 Monster Mash Ball
* Build the Haunted Castle 0/1 BUY
* Collect Haunted Horseshoes 0/1 GO (skip 5 gems) | Horses can drop horseshoes!
Reward: 1000 coin, 10 xp
Congratulations: Ivy: So spooktacular! This is going to be absolutely awe-ful!


Dialogue: Old Thomas: Miss Ivy told me her plan and I am here to help in whatever way I can! I must ask though, is it a good idea to party with monsters, Young Ruler?
Ruler: Well, if anything goes awry, we could host a true monster bashing!
Old Thomas: This is true. Oh! And I found a few scrolls that might help in this venture! "Building Bewitching Buildings for Beastly Boarding," advises... That we properly curse the foundation!
Ruler: And what exactly does that entail?
Old Thomas: These six thousand lines describe in detail how to curse each stone!
Ruler: Oh, jeez...
Old Thomas: Or we could just collect cursed stones from around the kingdom!
Ruler: That sounds like a much better plan! Wait? cursed Stones?!
Old Thomas: Do not fret! Every kingdom has cursed stones lying around! They are quite common!
Part 2 Monster Mash Ball
* Mine rocks (search for cursed stone) 0/10 GO (skip 10 gems)

Congratulations: The castle is building up quite frightfully!


Dialogue: Ivy: So I was thinking about the Monster Ball Bash...and it's possible that people won't want to party with monsters!
Ruler: Very astute, Ivy.
Ivy: But if we properly enchant the castle, no one will look scary!
Ruler: That sounds like a complex enchantment!
Old Thomas: According to "Making Merry with Monsters", the castle needs Bewitched Glass!
Ivy: Yes! When light filters through the glass, everyone will look to be in costume! so it will be like a giant masquerade party!
Ruler: We just need to make sure that no guests try to eat other guests...
Ivy: Huh. I didn't even think of that! I'll think of something!
Ivy: I'll look into the eating issue while you collect Bewitched Glass for the castle!
Part 3 Monster Mash Ball

Dialogue: Ivy: So preparations are coming along smashingly! I was thinking that the outside of our castle could look a bit more gloomy for the party...
Ruler: I will trust your judgement on this one, Ivy.
Ivy: Great! So I was thinking we definitely need to create an outdoor space... And what better than a ghoulish graveyard!
Ruler: Not with actual corpses, correct?
Ivy: Oh, no! Just with fog and coffins and maybe some ghosts...And the castle itself could be more unnerving...
Ruler: Just tell me what you need, Ivy!
Ivy: Let's clear an area for the graveyard gala and grim up the castle exterior a bit!

Ruler: Yeah, I am surprised by how many want to party with us!
Old Thomas: I will collect guest signatures so that we will have a record!
Ruler: Very good, Old Thomas! I'd like a briefing afterwards.
Old Thomas: Absolutely, Young Ruler!
Ivy: But more importantly, we need to have all the favors ready for our guests!
Ruler: Are they not ready yet?!
Ivy: I've gathered the goodies, but nothing is properly organized into baggies yet! I will make sure that all is clearly labeled and separated by guest species!
Ruler: Do we have time for that?
Ivy: Oh, not to worry! I will make it happen! Oh! We must have an apple baggie for our special guest, the Witch Alicolt!
Ivy: The monsters, citizens, and the special Witch Alicolt are making their spooky appearance soon!

Ivy: More mangy werebeasts got into our stockpiles and at a good portion of our party food!
Ruler: Do you think we can replace it in time?
Ivy: Only if you can dispose of those werebeasts! They won't leave!
Ruler; It seems against what we were going for with this party, but if we have no choice...
Ivy: I'm afraid if we don't stop them, they will eat everything in the kingdom!

I'd mention the horseshoes are found by horses and the event castle, in case people want to get out horses now. I guess they'll see step one right away though...

So this is a community event, we need to collect haunted horseshoes. It says you can get them from horses as well as the castle. I tried all mine and got nothing.

Oddly, one can buy the haunted lantern in the market, although it's the first community prize. Chop for more resources to build the castle.

I have been waiting for a Halloween event. All my current story goals are the Long Slog variety, so something a bit more active will be nice. And it doesn’t seem this will interfere with cooking, growing or going on quests, so I can still continue them. :)

It seems to me a lot of the things I'm clicking on for this community event are spawning the monsters too so I think as long as keep to the common list, we'll end up being okay... For the community we end up always needing to get the building high enough that it is on "auto-pilot" to finish the event. Looks like a cool top individual prize.:)

And wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, a DOUBLE H'ween event!!
It's not the Day of the Dead event I was hoping for but still.... THANK-YOU, S8, for giving us another PURPLE building! I <3 the new Haunted Castle already (even @ Lv 1, before it grows to fill in its huge 4x4 plot, lol)

I am literally dancing & doing some Franken-moves to the Monster Mash song right now as I type, LOL!!! Bring on the individual & community goodies (& the mummies, ghosts, werewolves, werebeasts from the other event...why are there 2 were-monsters but no zombies?! Lol)

...*giggling & running off to find my witch's hat & zombie heels* .... F--U--N!!!!

*siss, boo, bah!* :cool:

Is this make 15 earth wisps or give 15 earth wisps (i.e., will the ones already in inventory count)?

Give. I had 70+ and clicked Give before I realized it was a side goal I'd have trouble completing in 24 hours!



What triggers the side goal?

It was triggered by either Leveling up to L2 or completing the associated goal requiring "level up to L2" - since both occurred at the same time for me, I'm not sure which did the trigger. Usually it's completing a goal not an action, so I would think it is that -- appearing simultaneously with the third goal.

RevdKathy
10-07-16, 01:37 PM
Usually the items for a community goal like this don't go into the inventory. They should appear in the goal collection, top right of the screen. Check for them there. After two packs you may even have the second prize.

And wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, a DOUBLE H'ween event!!
It's not the Day of the Dead event I was hoping for but still.... THANK-YOU, S8, for giving us another PURPLE building! I <3 the new Haunted Castle already (even @ Lv 1, before it grows to fill in its huge 4x4 plot, lol)

I am literally dancing & doing some Franken-moves to the Monster Mash song right now as I type, LOL!!! Bring on the individual & community goodies (& the mummies, ghosts, werewolves, werebeasts from the other event...why are there 2 were-monsters but no zombies?! Lol)

And with that, I have used up my 40 + 20 from wizarding schools + 40 from fairy elixirs. I will leave other updates to the gem folks since I won't have more info for at least 16 hours. I'm not waking up at midnight to collect from taverns and libraries again!

(Reminder to use greenhouse for 20 energy if you have floral grow and vital extract already stocked up. Spending energy to make it now costs more than you get. Make vital grow if you max on mushrooms [from dead tree chopping] if you have an energy to spare to collect it.)

Also, when I first purchased the bundle my horseshoes did go into my inventory instead of the top right counter (which I've done events before so I know where they're supposed to go lol). Then when I force closed and looked again they were gone out of inventory and not reflected in my counter still.

The horseshoes come from tapping horses. I had 4 ready to go so I'm now stuck at 4 till my other horses are ready. There's 1 big herd in my kingdom right now. Some goal, way back when, we had to buy a bunch so I have 75+. I gotta go check Shibuyacloth to see if he's put out his herd...lol

It was the same way with the colosseum of the beasts event.

Was it? I didn't finish that one, but I thought the Colosseum dropped both chisels and hammers, and I know they didn't have two event items for the community event. It isn't like it removes them from the counter when you upgrade... Right?

Definitely come from horses still as mentioned in the earlier goal and seems to be a pretty good chance of dropping as well and so far I've gotten 2 horseshoes from a single horse as well.(unlike dew/flowers)

I love the events where we collect individual and community items. But the whole "here, buy a new building that is HUGE and you don't have room for," thing has gotten old. So has the "now put away everything you have carefully placed out so you can get out scores and scores of cottages and horses" thing.

And why do the counters NEVER work these days???

Yep I can confirm that the coin purchased brown horses drop horseshoes but not every time, but you also can get multiples. I've got all 99 of my horses out. I think they have an 8 hour recharge. (We need the time to rebuild our energy anyway). I suspect that you'll get most from upgrading the new building-most previous events have been that way.

As you upgrade the castle it will exponentially drop more Horseshoes. In these Community Events it is usually very advantageous to upgrade as quickly as possible.
The sooner you can get a, let's say, level 5 Castle, every collect you'll be getting something like 30-75. For now that's just a guesstimate but the drops usually ramp up pretty hard. So the quicker you're collecting from a higher level building, the more time you have to cash in on the higher drops and make your goal.

I just took a peek at the old Colosseum thread and that one was:
Lv.1 - 2 crests
Lv.2 - 4 crests
Lv.3 - 7 crests, etc
...and community goal opened at 700

Since this event (for community prize eligibility) opens at only 250 Horseshoes I'll have to do some more guessing...they must not ramp as high, but the totals needed hopefully won't be in the tens of thousands lol.

I was trying to keep spirits up a bit with my estimations, but I'm sure we'll know more in a few days. :)

Also this community event is 12 days instead of the normal 26. That's why I think the numbers are lower. If the first prize is at 25. I would think the alicorn would be 500 or 600 horseshoes.
It makes sense they would only increase it by 1. From an economical standpoint that is.

I hope it works out with the lower numbers that the final prize was won't be as much, it's my only hope. Put out lots of buildings so should be able to level up before bed or first thing in the morning and I think this is an event where you just have to tap the haunted house as many times a day as possible with a 2 hour reset. Time for an alarm for the next 11 days lol

Strategy discussion:

Aren't horses pointless at the moment? Since you only get one horseshoe per energy - and sometimes 0 - I am skipping them altogether for now. I don't have alicorns other than pink and wedding. Using up all of my 40 energy + wizarding schools for chopping rocks, going to libraries, taverns, mines, and dead trees sets me up for increasing the mansion all the way much more quickly. Hopefully it will continue to double or nearly double as in previous events. Even if it happened to only increase by one each level, we will still need to upgrade it all the way to win the quest, so that energy isn't wasted gathering materials we definitely need. Might as well get there sooner and then go to horses once you are collecting the max number of horseshoes from the Haunted Castle for as many days as possible.

TL;DR: Skip the horses until your castle is fully upgraded.

10-07-16, 10:01 PM
In regards to skipping the horses strategy, I was just going to post that too. Tapping on horses uses up too much valuable energy.

10-07-16, 10:02 PM
FYI: from collecting from my taverns and libraries twice now (yup, did collect at midnight. Newborn keeping mama up tonight) I have spawned about 10 werebeasts. I didn't even realize they dropped "wily werebeasts" - two now, in fact! I only realized I had them in inventory because the other quest goal to summon one disappeared. The other goal thread mentioned they drop the vines. 5 hr timer so cannot confirm yet. Pretty cool to have this permanent object also giving an upgrade-necessary item.

10-07-16, 10:18 PM
Another tip: I am not noticing a difference in number of glass drops based on level of tavern or library, but pirate is different. L1 and L5 have been 5 pieces each time. Sparkling mine gave me 3 and 7 glass. I believe that amount varies randomly. I have not gotten any glass from DEEP mines after four collections. Pirate tavern gave me 11. Not sure if that is random or consistent, but pretty nice considering shorter timer!

Funny glitch: the items needed for collections- rock piles, dead trees etc - are coming up with the "New!" label in the market.

Drop rates for cursed stone from small rock piles has been the best so far.

Rock outcropping only 2/20 a few times now :/
Seems to average 40-50% chance over a 10% chance.

Maxed on almost all stone stuff now, but got a gold nugget from small rock pile.

FYI: from collecting from my taverns and libraries twice now (yup, did collect at midnight. Newborn keeping mama up tonight) I have spawned about 10 werebeasts. I didn't even realize they dropped "wily werebeasts" - two now, in fact! I only realized I had them in inventory because the other quest goal to summon one disappeared. The other goal thread mentioned they drop the vines. 5 hr timer so cannot confirm yet. Pretty cool to have this permanent object also giving an upgrade-necessary item.

I had put out 4 extra taverns, and the additional 4 spawned 3 werebeasts. Newborn keeping Nana up tonight. Congratulations!

I'm still confused how it's laid out. When you click to craft any of the monsters it shows 100 and then the craft option will show, but it shows each animal for every animal. Do we need to do each animal every time or just 100 once for each animal and it's done? It's confusion that they have it separate to craft each monster on the goals and then all are listed for that goal.

You need 100 of each resource material dropped by the monsters to craft the monster .. If that makes sense?

I had been trying to balance dead trees and rocks for levelling up, but taverns spawned only one werebeast. I stupidly gave all 15 earth wisps before realizing that 10 beasts in 24 hours will be very hard, especially as I'm going to my mother in laws birthsday, and I don't think she will really understand the importance of logging into CS to slay beasts....

Reluctant Guest side goal #1 prize not worth spending any gems - or even 15 energy making wisps if you don't have a bunch in storage.

5 bewitched glass, 1 cursed stone, 1 haunted vine.

I happened to complete it by having werebeasts pop up from my tavern, pirate tavern and library collections.

I was balancing too until I realized if you have 5+ taverns and 3 or 4 libraries, you can get a fair amount of werebeasts a day who give haunted vines. plus, they can drop a wily werebeasts which is a deco with drops of 2 haunted vines every 5 hours. That's a much better return of item for clicks and may end up needing less trees than you think.

I sold a couple cottages and a farmhouse to build three more taverns... a good investment if you have the materials handy.

I took out all my taverns and libraries, it's not much but every little helps.
None of the buildings spawned ghost or mummy and I'm really curious what are they like. The werebeasts are spawning nicely so I hope I will make the timed goal but of course I triggered it after clicking on all the buildings in spite of the warnings. That's what I get for checking on my queendom before my first coffee.

Also either I got lucky or they improved the horse drop rates. I gave it a try this morning and I got 4 horseshoes from 8 horses so now it's a 50/50 which isn't bad at all. I'll put more out again and see what happens.

Lol. Feel your pain. My husband wants to go out because it's my birthday ... One piece of good news. Despite the card saying 99, you can have more vines. I think I was up in the 120s at one point after chopping ... so ... many ... Dead trees.

But a lot of energy wasted on buildings that are giving me dire boars on top of it. Oh well first day. I'm so glad I came here I would not have known about the horses. Thanks everyone. !!!

It looks like the "Bewitched Glass" are not counted anymore.

I had already 59. Last time I went to the library, I received 5. And after that, I still had 59. I though I made a mistake.
After some hours, I could again to go to the library. Before I went, I checked the amount of Bewitched Glass in my Haunted Castle, it was 59. Then I went to the library, checked the amount of Bewitched Glass received, it was 5.
I went back to the Haunted Castle, it was still 59.

I will never be able to upgrade my Haunted Castle !!!

EDIT : I just went to my DeepMine, I got 3, and they counted. I'm happy , the forum is really magic ;-)

Why are so many people going to cottages and jewelers? If you want to do the other quest, it goes an additional two weeks beyond this one, and it was shared by S8 that spawning the monsters without gems is very, very, very rare. I think they are making it possible (as opposed to the firey fox that was ONLY gem related) but not probable on purpose.

I can't help but wonder if the dire boars were supposed be coded to be something else. I have never had this many before. Very frustrating for what is already two challenging events. Feels more like we are swimming against the tide. If not for that, I would be fine with rare and challenging.

Fingers crossed we see changes this week after the long weekend here In the US.
Chances are no one is working on Monday. Hang tight.

It was. The Haunted Hall is from Halloween 2014.

So after collecting from 9 jewelers, 10 cottages and 12 lantern spires I haven't spawn a single ghost/werewolf/mummy. Only direboars! Werebeast are coming fine from taverns and dead trees. S8 can you check if the spawn rates are correct?

Reading through the thread, I'm debating whether or not to trade in buildings for more taverns and libraries. Problem is, the only surplus I have is cottages, and don't we need to collect from them? In past events I've been able to finish many events early by stocking lots of extra cottages and towers, but I've been playing since the first month of CS and the first events I haven't been able to finish have been the last few, so obviously it's time to change up my strategy. I typically only have 2 of every building, with the exception of 3 jewellers, conservatories, and markets.

My brain is just too tired today, and the two different goals are confusing me too much - can someone explain the trade off in getting rid of some of the cottages?

I just got out 2 dark cave formations. 1 gave 4 or 5 cursed stone, and 1 gave 3....so that's from 10 chops each formation ? I think, then I chopped outcroppings, 20 chops and got 3 cursed stone.

Yes. Sell a few farmhouses if you have any or a cottage or two. Keep four or five if you can. Taverns drop bewitched glass, 5+ every drop. Cottages only have a very, very small chance of spawning a new creature and have nothing to do with the haunted castle other than also Halloween themed. Nobody is getting to 100 parts without gems so really those other monster goals are a bit pointless at the moment and nothing but a distraction. Try for them when this event -- the castle community event -- is over if you like, though there won't likely be much return unless spawn rates are adjusted.

I did see one mummy from the goal to buy a trap, but that was it. Another impossible castle story quest. :(

10-08-16, 11:50 AM
I think the best advice I've seen is from peachtreeshoppe. These are two separate events. The community event is doable but the monster dance is far more difficult and may be targeted at gemmers. If you waste energy on cottages, watchtowers, and jewelers, you're missing the opportunity to get the community prizes. I have alicorns and have used a lot of them collecting from cottages and the other monster dance buildings but have only spawned 1or 2 ghosts and mummies. But I've spawned at least 25 werebeasts for the community event and have even gotten the pet werebeast as a drop. I haven't posted what's needed for higher level haunted house because it's just more of the same things.

Also, I've noticed that for the monster dance, the odds are greater of getting a dire boar than a ghost or mummy. Most players will be happier if they focus on the community event rather than chasing the ghosts, mummies, and werewolves. Those are going to be tough even with lots of energy sources.

janddolphins
10-08-16, 11:50 AM
I also just got my first mummy, finally! Now I have gotten all the monsters. For those saying we don't need the cottage that's where the werewolf comes from. Granted you don't get glass from it, but it is still for the long term event so some like me probably keep it out for that to click once in a while. I don't want to scramble for 12 days to try and get it so I'm balancing both events.

I think if done right it can be completed without gems, but ask me again as we are closer to the end lol. I am still worried about the final prize.

@moon & katt- I'm in a bit of a turkey coma right now so no numbers lol.

I do agree though that crafting the werebeast should be more then doable. This is only the second day and I have over 40 towards the 100.
All the others ones I think I only have one each.

My kingdoms inventory exploded buildings yesterday but I don't think I'll be making any of the cute collectables (poor mummy and ghost *fights back tear*). There's still 25 days but spawning each type 2-4x a day won't be happening.

I noticed the dark cave formation was in the pack for sale and chopping it most definitely gave me more drops compared to the regular rocks.
I had 2 dc formations in my inventory and chopped away. I only came out of the 10 chops with 2 Cursed stones each time...so not great luck for me. I'm probably just going to stick with the regular rocks.
So far the upgrade mats, per level on the castle, seem pretty reasonable.
I'm struggling with the above-mentioned Cursed stones but if I lay off of the buildings for the 'special beast' spawns (towers/Cottages/etc) I'll have enough energy for more rock chopping.

*Edit- OK I just did some quick guessing based on first post. Looks like glass is only going up 25 per level which is 1350 Bewitched Glass for the whole event.
I'm on level 4 going to 5 so (as long at it stays at 25 increase per level) I only need 1125 more Bewitched Glass. I'm probably just going to store all my extra taverns once I hit that number since the mines will be supplying me with hoarding bonuses anyways.

Table (amounts may change, but guessing off of pattern for now):
On Lv. 3 - 1225 more glass needed
On Lv. 4 - 1125
On Lv. 5 - 1000
On Lv. 6 - 850
On Lv. 7 - 675
On Lv. 8 - 475

The side goal is werebeasts, the ones that show up from libraries and taverns. With 6 or 7 taverns and 4 libraries, I got my 10 werebeasts to complete the (underwhelming) side goal. No need to chase werewolves for the side goal.

Smart move Soli.. No use insisting on what's not coming up. Too energy consuming. Just wish the DireBores were not invited to the party! I'm collecting what's needed for GhostCastle upgrade.. and horseshoes too.

Agreed. I determined that using energy for essentially 250 coins was a waste. Of course, my libraries and taverns are not spawning anything so other than my horses, it seems to be business as usual in my kingdom. Well, other than the darn boars that pop up with every five actions.

when I put that in, I saw that too...I'm not sure I've recorded the horseshoe drops correctly. At the beginning I didn't record a level 1 with any drops, so I moved everything up a level. I'm sure someone will post and help me correct any wrong info. :) I'm on L3, so I can't check it's correct as yet. It may be... I'll do a search in the thread and update it if I can find any info.

Just saw a Haunted keep in a neighbors! How do you get that?

I saw one too, you need to finish the quest in the quest book, leveling up the haunted house to get it. I'm thinking there are 10 levels. In 10 days going to be hard to do.

I didn't see that one. I will go look, thank you. Could a link be put in post one? I didn't realize this was not the same event.

Thank you for all the info in post 1. If it helps, I just realized the pirate tavern is dropping bewitched glass. I chopped my 4 haunted lanterns and received 3 bewitched glass twice and 1 haunted vine twice.

Doing the same. I'm not getting anything from Spires, Watchtowers, Cottages and Jewellers, so I can't see how I am supposed to get 100 from each. Ridiculous. I'm only on 200 horseshoes, so I need to change tactics.

A small suggestion: build as many taverns as you can afford to and have lots of horses out initially. As your haunted castle levels up, don't waste your energy on as many horses as the higher level castle drops more horseshoes every 2h, instead use it to hack rocks and dead trees to prioritise levelling up the haunted castle. Much easier scenario once you attain lvl 10 and you can devote most of the energy back into horseshoe collection.

How do you all get the cursed stones?
It's my only problem, the other needed parts come in easy...
I do the Iron rocks, because iron is the only item I need from rocks for my kingdom.
Is that the worst rock for cursed stone?
Should I keep a beast on my kingdom when shopping rocks?
I don't do that now, and I'm seeing about 1 werebeast and 1 boar every rock and 1 cursed stone every 1 or 2 rocks...

Just a quick note for SW, on first page it should be amended to: level 5 castle drops 9 horseshoes and level 6 drops 12. Have not reached level 7 so don't know number for that.

Cursed stones are a major problem for sure, I agree the rest are pretty straightforward. With so many levels and the numbers of stones required increasing for each level this is starting to feel really tricky.

I am doing the iron rocks too as they feel slight better than the others - but the drop rate is really low....

Thx for your response. I just wanted to try for another rock, but I hate it to lose all the stones again...
Today I finished 2 quests and now I'm crafting scissors from the irons for the 3th quest that cost my iron. 😊 The "need" of iron is done for now, but I can use them for making blocks and swords ofcourse. So I stay on the iron rocks for now...

Wow, seems like everyone is ahead of me... I use every energy I get, even set an alarm in the middle of the might to collect extra glass. Still I just upgraded to lvl 6, and only have 65 horse-shoes... Even used 2 energy-crates so far (10 and 25).

I have 2 wizard schools, 8-daily alicorns, and tab on nothing but things that give the required materials. The stones are the hardest for me: I get approximatly 1 stone per 5-6 chops. That's really quite low...

You're ahead of me. 2 wizard school and 2 daily alicorns. Check in 3 or 4 times a day. Rocks are tough on everyone :(

I'm curious how many of the materials are needed for upper levels of the castle. If I check in at the same rate, I want to know if I can even reach L 10.

11 taverns, 1 pirate tavern, 4 libraries, 2 regular mines =
86 bewitched glass
16 haunted vines from associated werebeasts spawning.

5 cursed stone from 1 outcropping and 2 small rock piles.

So I can get that by checking twice a day... 172 glass, 32 vines, 10 cursed stone.

Other check-ins 2-3x a day I just chop rocks, collect blocks and light armor I crafted, go to the pirate tavern, and occasional dead tree if that's where I'm lacking for next upgrade.

Currently L5 haunted castle...

I can do the math once I know materials needed. Can anyone share?

Thinking more... Since the drop rate for horseshoes doesn't increase as drastically as I expected, I'm wondering whether it IS better to go for horses rather than cursed stone to level up all the way... Need to know how many cursed stone translate to how many horseshoes to do the comparison.

I will be traveling all over Europe this week so there is now way I'll finish the event anyway. But even if I were able to be glued to my iPad and chop and hack dutifully, it would have been a tight spot.

I have a pretty good drop rate from my horses. I have been playing very sporadically since it started because I have had to replay a friend's wedding in 48 hours due to hurricane Matthew. But I am almost to prize 2 and my castle is only level 2. Now that I can play in earnest I will be leveling it up faster but I think horses are definitely a way to go.

peachtreeshoppe
10-09-16, 06:32 AM
11 horses = 8 horseshoes just now.

To get to three additional horseshoes per click of the castle by leveling up, I need 30 cursed stone from 180 rock chops. Well. Kattkazie, I think we were wrong. Unless a leveled up castle gives something fabulous, I may be abandoning that ship and only doing horses instead.

10-09-16, 06:43 AM
I think it all depends on what you want more. Leveling up the castle to 10 earns you a haunted keep/barracks. Earning the individual community prize gets you another all opt. My current alicolt occassionally drops energy and luminescence. But so does my keep. Hmmm...

Short term, the horses seem a better bet for horse shoes. But tapping taverns and leveling up the haunted castle helps you get a wild werebeast. Decisions decisions. When of course I would just like to do it all, and get my hands on one of the pink ghosts!

Am I wrong or was the last (my first) event for more days?
I know for sure I got my final individual prize 2 days before I leveled up the desert palace to level 10. But I did that to get the camel and that was 1 day before the event ended!
Why is this event so hard compares to the last?

Now I'm making my calcs. I can never reach level 10 or the needed items to level up must go down after level 7... (wake up Jackie, you're dreaming!) I don't know how many horse-shoes we needed for the alicorn, but I'm afraid I can't make it to that too... I think I have to stop using my energy for this event and going for the usual quests in my book.

The last Community event was 25 days, so it was twice as long as this one.

To me this event has super mega good prizes and that's why I think maybe it's harder to complete.
An Ali -> personal goal complete and the Halloween version of Barracks -> leveling your HC to 10.

Starting yesterday, I've been putting my energy into about 20 horses, chopping large stone outcroppings and harvesting my 22hr buildings when they're ready (I'm still leveling/expanding so I still need the income from them).
Collecting from about 6-8 Taverns, 3 Libraries, and my mines have been giving me more then enough Bewitched Glass and the occasional Werebeast spawns for the Vines.

13 energy on buildings, assume 3 Werebeast spawns @4 energy each (8HP - energy back) -> 25 energy every 8hrs.
That leaves a fair bit to collect from horses and punch rocks.

This event (and the other as well!) is particularly challenging for lower level players and/or players without a large number of energy sources, like alicorns and are not willing to spend a lot on gems (the other event). You are correct, the last event was for a longer period than this one, and unless Storm8 changes some of the levelling requirements for the castle, many lower level players and players without large energy resources will not be able to complete this, sorry.
