Note: defeating one of these monsters may result in one dropping as a gift. This means you don't need to craft one. They go straight to inventory if they drop. They also are functional and have drops. SW

There’s a spooky presence in the kingdom! Amid the citizens, monsters lurk behind every corner… Muster up thy bravery and strength, and defend the people from this terrifying threat! Eventually, perhaps they will leave well enough alone… or settle down and become amicable new friends!

[==Update requires Level 10+, and is live from 10/07 until 11/01 @ 4pm.==]

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

A quick note about this one, everyone!

This is very similar to the Fiery, Foxy Box (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?93758-Castle-Story-8-25-Update-A-Fiery-Foxy-Box-redeem-gift!-*EXPIRED*) - there are some monsters creeping around your kingdoms, but they will be very difficult to find! Should you hunt them down, they will drop resources for you to craft into your very own pet versions of those monsters :) Unlike the Fiery, Foxy Box, it is possible to spawn these monsters without spending gems, however they are very rare and difficult to find!

Everyone from Level 10 and up has the chance to find these creepy crawlers for the full month of October! Best of luck to you all, and Happy Halloween!!! <3

To summon the monsters you battle see netwiz's post on page 1.

The cauldron is to craft your own ghost, werewolf, werebeast, & mummy.

Netwiz. Can you add the cauldron info to your post so players aren't confused. They still need to battle monsters.

Heyyyyy, yeah, I just got a dire boar from a lantern spire... I thought they were suppose to spawn a GHOST!?!!! :confused:

But OMG, the mummy & werewolf are tiny but sooooo freaking adorable, can't WAIT to have one.

And since we can *only* craft these creatures in Ivy's new cauldron...does that mean we can only craft 1 of each monster and then that monster's craft will disappear???

Whyyyyyy are my lantern spires only spawning DIRE BOARS!?! Grr.

Hey, SparklyOctopus or someone else from S8 ~ Do the Spires of Love count for spawning ghosts (or as usual, are they exempt from events such as these)???
(No, those aren't the ones spawning dire boars for me; they're in storage but wanna know if I should pull em out, lol.)

That's not good!!! Of course, it's like 4:50 pm in S8's world in Cali so don't know if you can get any help today. Maybe pm someone real quick. And put your post in the bugs thread, too.

Pikasquirrel & sourp4tch are both on so I'd give it a shot if I were you.

In other news:

Cottages are ready....
12th try finally spawned a werewolf...:mad:
It dropped 2 pelts ... so just 49 more of them before I get my 100 pelts...& so with those odds just need to tap 588 or so more cottages ... smh

Honestly I have not done the math. It just sounded extremely high. I hope it's better than it sounds. And also I may be missing some info, but waiting for the buildings to refresh seems like a long time between tapping for a "chance" to spawn a monster-the right monster. Good grief!

So the other beasts have a rare chance of dropping their counterpart from the cauldron....that's nice. :)
Be sure & let us know what she drops. Does it have a 4 hour timer like the werebeast?

I don't see how we can collect enough to tame all the monsters. Maybe one over 22 days but all, with the fact that they are rare to find it just seems impossible. I love the cute ghost so I'll go for her but I hate that I can't complete the event. How though are we supposed to get 400 of each collection? Am I missing something?

Both events are exciting in their setup and I love that there is so much to do, I just hate that with both I feel defeated on day one. Not sure if others feel the same with these events. It's taking the fun out of what clearly was well thought out events though, they just clearly got the numbers wrong:(

Perhaps the special drops won't happen until after the event ends.

But.. but it is special! It helps with the other quest with a guaranteed drop of upgrade necessary items for the other (community) event. I'm glad I have acquired two wily werebeasts now from slaying spawned werebeasts from library and tavern collections. With just two energy, I get several vines as opposed to a vine or two from an entire dead tree.

Tip:
I only realized I had them in inventory because this quest's goal to summon one disappeared without crafting anything.

I did get a werewolf ( she is way too cute to be called a werewolf though) from cottages 😀👻

So far, no werewolves nor mummies. I did fight one ghost, but for some reason, it didn't count. Werebeasts are coming quite often. It will be very difficult to finish the side goals connected with most of these cute little ghoulish creatures.

.....and a mummy from Jewelry.

.....and heaps of Dire Boars! Just wish at a crital moment like this when trying to trigger other monsters, and collecting material for upgrading Ghost Castle.. that normal critters would keep off the kingdom instead of consuming precious energy!

I also have a pet willybeast drop. I feel like the Willybeast one is less rare than we think, it does not show up on the screen like the other items. I only found it because I happened to look in my inventory, then came here before placing it to see and make-sure it was a pet to stay and not something else.

If you kill a monster, I would advise checking your inventory just in case. Although, the quest to tame one does disappear when you "catch" one.


I believe the ones we "catch" from drops will drop their "special event items" possibly after the event has ended and along with the animals we craft in the cauldron, allowing us to continue to make these animals outside of the event: because we still have the available source of needed parts!

I got this timed goal thread up, bought the 10 gem trap, chopped but like others forgot I had a monster on the board, so got no monster spawn from the trap and hence no part 2 or the rest of the goals in this chain. What do l do now? I cleared the monster on th board, another werewolf spawned from another part of some of the other goals and in killing it I completed the part one for this goal but there have been no more parts triggered for this goal. Done all the force closely stuff etc and have collected from 10 watch towers cottages and jewellers with nada monsters. I am worried that by not getting the other parts for this goal chain I may never get spawn from these buildings. Anyone else experienced this, while I wait for support query to be answered?

Never mind I bought another trap, chopped and all flooded into goal book. It's a roundabout way but it worked.

They are two unrelated quests with similar characters since they run concurrently. I'd just focus on the castle community event for now since these monsters are (even as s8 says) extremely rare by buildings and we have ten more days to find them once the community event finishes. It's giving everyone a sliver of hope to catch one as opposed to the firey fox which REQUIRED direct gem payment. It's a slight possibility, hardly a guarantee.

Making a pet (other than the werebeasts) during the event is unlikely without a bunch of gems. If you do manage to spawn at least a handful this month and a pet drops from slaying them, it would seem they might continue to drop parts to make more of them after the event.

Can pikasquirrel or sourp4tch confirm that parts to craft more pets will continue to drop from pets we own after the event?

Pets don't drop parts required for making more of the same / other pets...I have a pet werewolf..she drops bones and fur..she does not drop Werewolf pelt which is needed for crafting a pet werewolf ,they only drop from slaying werewolves...I think it would be similar for other pets too

For those players who enjoy numbers (I'm looking at you, Solientus), all of my buildings were ready to collect from this morning. I collected from 23 cottages/watchtowers/jewelers and spawned zero (0) ghosts/mummies/werewolves. Then I collected from 18 taverns and libraries for community event and spawned 6 werebeasts.

Hopefully the drop rates will get better for the monster dance, but until and unless the rates are increased, almost everyone can get a werebeast, but the other monsters will only be found in the mythical spellbound dew land.

A strategy that might work for those with limited energy is to choose just one of the monsters, for me it would be the pink ghost, then only put out the spires and watchtowers to lure the ghost. You could focus on that for a week and when you get enough potions for the ghost, put up the watchtowers and get out the jewelers to work on a mummy. That way, you might not end the event with 30 body parts for each animal with none completed. Would also work better for those with limited space.

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.

This is true, and helpful advice. Thanks!

I have seen ONE ghost. Two mummies. These were from traps. Now my gems are gone, and I'm done trying to do monster quest goals. I have scores of horses out and I almost have enough horseshoes to qualify for the community gifts, so I am focusing on that; I may even park a beast so I can stop getting direboars every other click.

collecting 3rd day, and only usual dire boars are there.
same with cropping rocks.

nothing for deadtrees.

the only thing working is taverns and libraries for wereguys.
all others are just zero, and even less due to huge losses for dire boars fighting.

So I was happily playing along this morning and the spawn rate for were beasts was super amazing. And then all of a sudden I had one in inventory that was dropped from one I killed!! And then I got another one! Sooooo. . . Please forgive me if this is already covered. I haven't kept up with the forum closely on this one {had to plan a hurricane Matthew relocated wedding in 48 hours}. Is this a thing now? Can werewolves, ghosts and mummies also be dropped when we defeat one of those monsters? And what about ghosts and mummies. I get a lot of were beasts and werewolves but have not seen a ghost or mummy yet :-/

Yep, all of the "Special" monster spawns have a super rare chance of dropping a small version of themselves!
The Cauldron lets you craft the tiny figure (which has a cd) just incase you get 100 of their mats (mummy spawn drops 1-2 bandages -> 100 bandages to craft the figure, see first post for more) just incase you really want it and have a lot of Gems to spend.

So I was happily playing along this morning and the spawn rate for were beasts was super amazing. And then all of a sudden I had one in inventory that was dropped from one I killed!! And then I got another one! Sooooo. . . Please forgive me if this is already covered. I haven't kept up with the forum closely on this one {had to plan a hurricane Matthew relocated wedding in 48 hours}. Is this a thing now? Can werewolves, ghosts and mummies also be dropped when we defeat one of those monsters? And what about ghosts and mummies. I get a lot of were beasts and werewolves but have not seen a ghost or mummy yet :-/

Yes pets can drop from slaying them, but very rare chance, you are extremely lucky! congrats!

Is anyone else still getting dire boars from cottages. Are we not supposed to get the werewolf?


Ugh!!! Please turn off the dire boars!! I can't get a ghost from towers or spires just boars are spawning!!! Boars spawning collecting from mines, chopping small rock piles!!!
S8, please, please, turn them off!!!

Add my voice to the request! 33 spires / watchtowers, one ghost and lots of direboars, 20 cottages and nothing spawned at all, rocks and sparkling mines send me dire boars like I hadn't placed the swampy pond, 5 jewelers and nothing...

As soon as my energy refills, I will upgrade my spooky castle to level 4 (need 14 glass aand 3 thinges from rocks). I have seen ONE ghost, ZERO mummies, ONE werewolf - but it came from the spooky trap. No trouble finding werebeasts, but the others are crazy hard!

Please either turn off the dire boars, replace them with something else, or have them do a random drop of parts we need!!! Please!

I just got a pet ghost while fighting the first ghost that spawned from my watchtowers!!! I put my towers away and am focusing on jewelers. Keeping my fingers crossed. I really want the werewolf and the mummy too! Rare but more likely than the fiery fox! Or even that blasted kitty!

The Scooby Gang was right. Ghosts don't really exist. I really find this project a boar. Get it? Boar?
Anyway, I'm pulling my cottages off my realm so I won't be tempted to waste energy on them. To get 100 ghosts or mummies parts at this rate ain't happening.

Latern was a drop from the Halloween Monster Mash Ball event, thread here (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?94642-Castle-Story-10-7-Update-Monster-Mash-Ball-(TIMED-OPTIONAL))
I got 1, ONE, Bewitched Glass. It's random which material you get (1-2):H. Horseshoe, B. Glass, or H. Vine.
IMO not worth copping, keep for deco.

Of course because I found a werebeast in my inventory he has to pop up on EVERY tavern click! This is draining my energy. If only I had this luck with pop ups for the other monsters lol.

Let me correct that, they are popping up any building they can!

Also someone mentioned that when they caught an animal and it was in their inventory it was a mini version and they had to craft it, but mine was full grown and the option to craft disappeared and it is already dropping so not sure of others experience.

VersaceMorrow
10-09-16, 09:09 AM
All I'm doing is wasting energy collecting from cottages, towers, spires, and jewelry stores. Nothing is popping and when it does, it's usually a boar.

Same here... I have gotten the ghost twice, the mummy once, and no werewolves.

S8 needs to take some lessons from casinos about intermittent rewards. There has to be some frequency of success to get people interested in continuing. I can see making the pet drop super-rare, but having spawning be rare, when you want 100 of each to craft a pet? Come on, be reasonable or no one will bother.

I just chopped a dire boar from a library and got the drops from a werebeast - cursed fur and haunted vines. Still no free monsters. Be patient I think that ghosts etc. will be everywhere when you complete the Monster Mash Ball. Level 7 haunted house is giving me 16 horse shoes per drop. I was getting lots of dire boars until yesterday when I completed the quest and got the swamp. Since then I have gotten 2 or 3.

You do realize that this is a 26 day quest right? So we have 23 more days to find these creatures. From what I am seeing, at some point, they are all going to drop from a defeated creature most likely anyway. They also did say at the beginning that they were very very rare.

Also those 4 quests that pop-up associated with these new Halloween monsters are more of a guideline as far as I can see. It's letting you know which ones you haven't found yet.

I agree, I started out by dragging out a bunch of cottages, towers and jewelers but then sold most of them for taverns and libraries and am now just focusing on one thing at a time. We only have 10 days for the other, 3 weeks for this one so plenty of time to pull our hair out.

If only every monster dropped at the same rate as the werebeast we would be set! Seriously though such great animation and I'm going to hate to see it go to waste if I can't get enough to craft them. I really want the ghost and werewolf too. I don't mind a few gems but I'm not going to spend hundreds to get them. Yesterday with lots of tapping I managed several monsters to show and I was up to 10/100 on ghosts, and a similar number for werewolf. Today I haven't gotten a single one to pop up despite same amount of tapping. So it really is random. I hope they will give us mini quests for parts or I get lucky and just catch them. This quest seemed so fun at the start, but being a quest of luck again and not hard work that just took the fun out of it

Please S8 stop giving quests that rely on the luck of the draw and focuses on our hard work. I want to feel like I accomplished something and earned my prize, especially for a long term quest like this

The drop rate for the Ghosts, Werewolves and Mummies is appalling. In 3 days of play I have caught 1 werewolf!! Tapped the "Get" button and ended up in Ivy's cauldron where I learned that I must collect 100 Essence/Pelts/Wrappings to craft the characters. At this drop rate I'd be 100 before I collected them all even if the quest had no time limit and I won't purchase gems to "buy" the necessary components.

Maybe it's better just to work on the Elves, it's less stress

I agree 100% too many dire boars are spawning; it's ridiculously rare and we need 100 to make one for us to keep. PLEASE ease up on the super duper rarity. I will NOT spend 1000 gems for 100 traps especially when you could get different ones spawn each time

Getting a lot of dire boars and trolls at those buildings though. I'm in the middle of building Kaz's Abode, could that be why I have so many boars and trolls? Could it be messing me up? Just wondering if anyone had found a solution/reason for this yet.

Tealantern
10-10-16, 06:19 AM
We would need to spawn each of these three to four times a day to stand a chance of crafting one of each by the end of the month. That's impossible and I doubt we would be able to craft any of them apart from the direbeast (I have one friendly one now). I'm not complaining, just making a statement of fact. I have a fair amount of towers and cottages but I have triggered one spawn in four days. I'm a level 50 player.

I have one question for Storm 8.

What is the point of this event? It seems pretty pointless to me if the cute creatures don't want to come to the party!

A hard time getting mummy's or ghosts? There's a problem. Has to be.

I brought out all my cottages and jewelers. I have collected from the jeweler about 100 times and ZERO mummy's. The cottages do NOT spawn anything as I have collected from them nearly 100 times as well. The Library however, also spawns that ghost dire boar as does the taverns. Nothing spawns a ghost or werewolf.

The only way I got a ghost to spawn (besides the one for the goal) was to buy a trap at 10 gems. You need 100 potions to craft a ghost. The trap spawns one of the four monsters. Do the math, it's a joke to think you can get enough monsters that way.

fabulus12
10-10-16, 08:40 AM

10-10-16, 08:55 AM
Why are the werebeast the only animal that spawns with the other quest. Why can't the other 3 spawn with rocks and horses, you really made us choose one quest or another. That's not really fair to those lower level players either. The energy required and the boars constantly popping up have turned these quest into nothing but a boring and let down. With the amount of rock chopping these other 3 animals should have a chance to spawn. Quest that were doable last year for all. Now only doable for those that have tons of alicorns or energy saved up. Why give these quest to lower level when the don't have a chance unless they spend thousands of dollars. Neighbors are leaving in droves because it's becoming impossible to play. Again I don't think the developers even played these quests before releasing them.

I was thinking of doing the same thing... But still seems like an impossible quest. NOW... If you only got certain beasts on certain buildings, I'd go for it for sure. The regular direboars need to be shut down for this event, they're taking over the place! Lol

You do only get certain beasts in certain buildings. Spires and watchtowers give you ghosts, jewelers give you mummies (have yet to see one of those), and cottages give you werewolves. Of course, you can still spawn dire boars as well. I would pick your fave and go for that one first.

The other quest is extremely energy intensive and difficult for even higher level players to achieve but even though this quest is near impossible in terms of crafting werewolf, ghost and mummy, there will always be some players who will spend energy tapping for this quest in the hope that they will 'win the lottery' and nab a pet drop.

Thank you. I hope everyone that is complaining reads your post.

While the Fox was 100% impossible without gems, this one is only slightly possible... Maybe 1% over the entire duration to get a nonwerebeast pet drop. Who knows. If people want to pause on their main storyline, or folks like me who finished the storyline (except for elves) can take a break from expansion or inventory buildup, it's something to search for. That's it.

Clicking 1,000,000 times guarantees nothing. There is no set point where you get it. It's pure chance, which is fine.

I also like the suggestion to pick a single beast and spend 100% of your time looking for him first, using the rest of your energy on horses of another critter. That way maybe you can build up enough parts for that one creature. Probably not, but possibly. At least that way you're working towards something.

If you don't like it, pretend the only option was to spend 1000 gems to get it. Would people really want that to be the case? 1000 gems with a 50 gem plus critter prize? No, because then you'd just ignore it altogether from the beginning.

If you had enough to craft, you probably have a few pets that dropped while slaying. Store your finished critter and check inventory. You might have three or four in there.

It's one thing to make it impossible to get all of everything in events but to do it as a once in a year Halloween event with prizes that most people really want, well that's just cruel. A lot of people would spend gems to accomplish some things but to gem this event would break the bank. Yes some are rich and will spend so I guess these people are the target and tough luck for the rest.

10-10-16, 11:25 PM
Has something gone wrong with the game? When the event first started I was able to get a couple of ghosts from the towers and mummies from the jewelers (no werewolves from the cottages though), but for the past couple of days, I've got nothing but dire boars from these places. Even the taverns are generating dire boars along with the occasional werebeast.

I'm just chopping Dead Trees and/or collecting from Tavern/Library until I get a Werebeast.
Then some Rock chopping until I'm down to single digit energy.

I only slay the Werebeast when there is nothing else left to do except things that often spawn Werebeast.

That way I can avoid most boars (do still get the odd one from mine collection)

10-11-16, 12:21 AM
I think I'm going to go with the one beast strategy too and see if I get lucky and maybe even get two and there are two I really want. I got lucky at the werebeast dropped on my board. Putting most of my energy on the ball but when I have a few to spare it will be all lanterns and spires for that adorable pink ghost (I'm a pink girl and have 11/100 already) then I'll try for werewolf because of cute factor too and it's also my next highest with 10/100. I feel that if I somehow pulled those numbers already with 3 days trying, as I stopped pushing hard Sunday, then with the time left there is a chance with maybe minimal to no gems being spent and I will have go forget about the poor mummy and leave him by his lonesome self. Not even sure I'll make werewolf. I just was so excited about Halloween animals. Crossing my fingers we get an update along the way that will somehow help us in a big way. Best of luck everyone. I'm back to focusing on the ball.

Has something gone wrong with the game? When the event first started I was able to get a couple of ghosts from the towers and mummies from the jewelers (no werewolves from the cottages though), but for the past couple of days, I've got nothing but dire boars from these places. Even the taverns are generating dire boars along with the occasional werebeast.

This event is impossible! 100 pelts to get something from Ivy's Cauldron...?! I have been playing for 3 days and have only seen 2 mummies and no ghosts! Do I need Level 6 to get them or something? All I get is dire boars while I try to mine rocks 5000 coins for one of those round things :( not happy . With this goal it's way to hard! And expensive.

I keep thinking once the haunted keep business is finished we'll be tripping on cute ghosts and mummies and little weregirls. I have not seen anyone post they are hitting them consistently.

I took everyone's advice and bought a ton of horses and 2 new libraries and a jeweller (in the hopes I am right about the days after the monster bash). Hang in there. I don't think this one is going to be as hard as the griffin which I couldn't complete and blew a ton on! Good luck!!

Okay, I stopped the other event, because I can't get enough cursed stones. Already gave up this, but doing my usual things... I got a Wily Werebeast as a drop from a Werebeast! And I'm close to crafting a 2nd.
This Spooky event thing is 2 weeks longer then the Monster Ball event! Werebeast pet drops cursed fur, for crafting more pets and haunted vines? Where do we need that for after the other event is ended??
It's more logical for me if this event ended before the Monster Ball. Or do I miss something?

Edit: got a rattail from my Wily Werebeast and the Haunted Vines. At least something that can be used after the events too. 😉

I am only getting occasional werebeasts and LOTS AND LOTS of direboars. When I chop rocks i get a direboar about every 3-5 chops which means i use my energy quickly. I have only had one ghost, one werewolf, one mummy. No way i finish this

I am glad to see I am not the only one not getting ghosts, werewolves, or mummies. Is this some type of glitch? I hope they fix it soon. I don't feel that I should have to spend gems in order to get these monsters.

Same here - very frustrating. I make sure there are no parked monsters. Mine has been longer than 3 days. At this rate 100 of each is ridiculous! Help!

I have two werebeasts, one I crafted and one dropped. One of them game me a prime cut in addition to the vines. So, maybe they will drop regular stuff after the event is over

I asked one of my neighbor. Werewolf gives manticore whiskers or fur. Ghost gives glimmer dust or earth wisp. Mummy gives coal or simple glue.

I don't care about anything from this event except getting one of the ghosts. It is super cute and I really want one, but I don't see how it's possible. I have maxed my kingdom on towers and collect from them practically as soon as they become available again, yet I have gotten maybe three since the event started. This is just ridiculous and frankly feels like a slap in the face tease from S8. This isn't a reasonable task and it isn't fun anymore. This feels like a money grab more than a well intentioned event update. I am so disappointed.

OK - I agree with the other posts. I previously concentrated on the Monster Mash event which now I have nearly completed, and now I am working on the ghosts etc. I have tapped watchtowers, cottages and the jewelers and so far only one mummy. I will not waste any more time on this event until they sort out the drop rate and get rid of the dire boars. The programming simply makes this tedious with no hope of success in sight. Sorry but this event does not work. :eek:

Yes I may seem grumpy but I am still hurting from losing 40 gold nuggets and 30ish purple hides from the Elven quest.

I have been hunting monsters since this began and this is crazy. I should not be getting 75% dire boars to 25% monsters if I get anything at all. I have 14 towers/spires. 1 sets off a ghost if I tap at least two others and if I tap the rest I get 1-2 dire boars on the remaining dire boars. I have over a dozen cottages that I tap all of at a time and nothing comes except the occasional dire boar. If the random dire boar dropped a random Halloween drop it would not be so bad, but needing 100 of 5 different type of monster components whilst also harvesting haunted house house building supplies is challenging. Halloween is the only time of year I care about. You can have 20 different Yule themed events and if I could not complete them I would be ok, but to have something have something Halloween undone, heartbreaking (spooky orphanage, I am looking at you!)

Is anyone getting anything except dire boars at the moment? The special monsters used to be rare but now they are non existant. Has anyone had a special monster in the last hour?

10-12-16, 06:41 AM
Nope, no special monsters at all... I saw maybe one of each sinds the begining..... Except the werebeast... Those i see a lott

I can usually get a couple of were beasts, but the rest are nonexistent. Sounds like I am not alone in getting direboars & skunkupines instead of the monsters. Is there anyway to skip this event and go back to the elves? I skipped the fox fur thing, too because it was just too boring.

Well you better do it before you get to level 10, after that werebeasts are as scarce as ghosts and they dont spawn from jewellers and librarys anymore, once the glass stops dropping the only way to get a werebeast is through chopping dead trees, a lot of dead trees.

I'm on L9 right now, just got the timed goal to kill 30 werebeasts & they're not spawning anywhere anymore; Dead trees, libraries, or taverns. BTW... the jewelers is supposed to spawn mummies not werebeasts.

Sorry you are quite correct, I meant taverns, my appologies but I am a bit ticked off.


Edited to add: they do still spawn from dead trees but it takes many more dead treees than before, when the glass was still dropping I would get a werebeast every 3 to 3 1/2 dead trees, now it is over six, just my experience yours may be different

Ridiculously hard to achieve. I'm housebound and play almost constantly on android and iOS I'm focusing on the orphanage and just taking the approach of well I'll get as far as I get.

Challenging is one thing impossible quite another

I hit about 8 trees earlier & nothing. There's probably a spawn adjustment in the code after you reach the timed werebeast goal. S8 trying to get us to spend which I have not done since the p-Ali.

I'm pretty much skipping it too... can't get these monsters to save my life...until someone mentioned about the direboars, there are a bunch. I can only get werebeasts so what I've been doing is not going for the others, parking a werebeasts when I'm down on energy, then kill when I get enough to cut dead trees.

I'm working more on the elves, that one is fun because there's no timer on it....I can't get those wisps back but I'm never going to click on anything until I get building levelled up....

I'm just glad everyone else is having the same problems

All I get from cottage, juweler, death trees, rocks, libaries and tevern are dire boars :(
It cost so many energy fithting these monsters..
It seems they coming up more now then before.
Just now we need so many energy because rocks give so litle stones.
Why not stop these dire boards and let the were wolf show up more???

I have not mummy. I SEE /and fight/ with ONE MUMMY in my kingdom.
All time I see and fight only with Werebeasts. No ghosts, no mummies, no werewolfes.
And I would like werewolf, but it is pretty :-/
