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!).

5. The ability to find warm rocks and frost shards and to make the warming potion and the frost swords comes and goes. Be careful not to chop between chapters as NO ITEMS WILL DROP OR CAN BE CRAFTED.



So how much do I need?
Trees: 6 Yellow Acers | 7 Red Acers
Warming potions (3 warm stones, 10 hot peppers, 10 water): ch1x1; ch3x2; ch4x2; ch5x1; ch6x1; ch7x1; ch9x2; ch10x8 = 18

Frost swords (4 frost shards, 20 iron ore): ch1x1, ch3x2; ch4x2; ch7x1; ch10x8 = 14

Journey to the Snowy Mountains - 2 warming potions, 2 frost swords, 5 fur
Journey to the Frozen Forest - 1 warming potion, 1 frost sword, 1 simple feast



A blizzard has swooped into our kingdom without warning! It is completely unprecedented! I cannot find any similar incidents in my scrolls. We must look into this!
Chapter 1:
Goal 1 Collect warm stones 0/3 GO (skip 75 gems) | collect from rock outcropping
Goal 2 Brew a warming potion 0/1 GO (skip 75 gems) Potion Shop, 1 hour - 3 warm stones, 10 hot peppers, 10 water (speed up is 4 gems)
Goal 3 Collect frost shards for a magical sword 0/2 GO (skip 30 gems) | collect from ponds only
Goal 4 Forge a frost sword 0/1 GO (skip 45 gems) | Workshop, 2 hours - 4 frost shards, 20 iron ore
Goal 5 Journey to the frozen forest 0/1 GO (skip 20 gems) | Castle, 2 hours - 1 warming potion, 1 frost sword, 1 simple feast
Notes: The reward from completing each goal is 1 Ice Path


I think the best thing we can do is gather as many supplies as possible before the storm gets too out of hand!
Chapter 2:
Goal 1 Visit the well 0/1 VISIT (skip 10 gems) | reward: mermaid scales
Goal 2 Donate grits 0/3 GIVE (skip 15 gems) | reward: bacon
Goal 3 Harvest wheat 0/20 GO (skip 20 gems) | reward: fertilizer


I have been researching more into the storm, and it appears to be of unnatural origins, possibly from the snowy mountains! I suggest traveling there and looking into this mystery!
Chapter 3: ***GET RID OF ANY MONSTERS ON YOUR BOARD FOR GOAL 3 TO WORK***
Goal 1 Clear iron rich rocks 0/3 GO (skip 30 gems) | reward - Jewel
Goal 2 Journey to the Snowy Mountains 0/1 GO (skip 40 gems) | Castle, 3 hours - 2 warming potions, 2 frost swords, 5 fur | reward: silver ore + BOX DROP of 1 bear bait to place on your board. GET RID OF ANY MONSTERS FIRST.
Goal 3 Say hi to the lonely polar bear 0/1 | Find Polar Bear Bait in Snowy Mountains or your storage.
Goal 4 Defeat Yerik Bearson 0/1 GO | reward: Snowy Wall

After the adventure, I found a plate with something to eat. It looks like a roast !! Goal 3 (from chapter 3) says "Go". When you go, it brings you to the plate. You tap on it. The plate disappears, and the YB appears !
You need to fight 50 times, and then, chapter 3 is finished.
Important : I didn't have any monster when I tapped on the finished adventure !

My advice is to keep collecting and making potions and swords as long as possible before collecting the adventure and defeating yb. Also, make sure you have no monsters on the board before tapping the bear bait!!


That is so odd that all we found in the mountains was that angry polar bear. Maybe the storm is coming from the Frozen Forest?
Chapter 4:
Goal 1 Chop red acer trees 0/2 GO (skip | reward: living wood You need to clear the trees for the goal to complete.
Goal 2 Journey to the frozen forest 0/2 GO (skip 40 gems) | Castle, 2 hours - 1 warming potion, 1 frost sword, 1 simple feast | reward: sap
Goal 3 Defeat polar bearlings 0/5 | reward: creep tooth


Citizens have been complaining of bears drinking the taverns dry! Why have those feisty polar bears followed us back to the kingdom? Go check it out!
Chapter 5: ***GET RID OF ANY MONSTERS ON YOUR BOARD FOR GOAL 2 TO WORK***
Goal 1 Refill the Tavern Brew 0/1 GO (skip 100 gems) | Kitchen, 2 hours - 1 warming potion, 3 wheat, 3 water (speed up is 8 gems) | reward: water
Goal 2 Visit a tavern 0/1 VISIT (skip 10 gems) | clicking at the tavern spawns Yerik. Then you have to fight it with 90 energy | reward: simple feast
Goal 3 Defeat enraged Yerik Bearson 0/1 GO (skip 20 gems) | reward: fur


This storm is only getting worse, and there must be a reason that the bears are here! I want to meet with their leader, Yerik Bearson, and get to the bottom of this!
Chapter 6:
Goal 1 Chop Yellow Acer Trees 0/6 GO (skip 60 gems) | reward: living wood clear 6 trees, not 6 chops
Goal 2 Craft an Ever-Hearth 0/1 GO | Workshop, 2 hours - 1 warming potion, 50 wood, 25 stone | reward: 2 chestnuts (you can make another while it's crafting if you want to...)
Goal 3 Cook Hearty Feasts 0/1 | reward: flour | The ones in inventory DO count, so you can make this in advance.
Goal 4 Visit Ivy's Hut 0/1 | reward:
Note: the Ever-Hearth is decorative


Apparently Yerik and his bears are out of work and just sleep the days away! Let us help them get back on their feet! I hear Yerik is a master carpenter! A bear carpenter! Amazing!
Chapter 7:
Goal 1 Journey to the Frozen Forest 0/1 | reward: faerie jar
Goal 2 Carve a Wooden Sled 0/1 GO | Workshop, 30 minutes - 50 wood, 5 simple glue | reward: chestnuts (you can make another while it's crafting if you want to...)
Goal 3 Train Polar Bearlings 0/10 GO (skip 100 gems) | reward: snow gate


Citizens can barely get around in the snow now, and Yerik wants to help more! With enough sleighs and sleds, we should be able to traverse the snowy kingdom easily!
Chapter 8:
Goal 1 Chop Red Acer Trees 0/5 GO | reward: glimmerbulb
Goal 2 Carve a red sleigh 0/1 | Workshop, 1 hour - 5 super glue, 50 wood, 4 red dye
Goal 3 Train Polar Bearlings 0/10 | reward: fish


Yerik told me he was going to nap after finishing that sleigh, and ever since the storm has been completely out of control! I think we might have finally cracked the case of this mysterious storm!
Chapter 9: ***GET RID OF ANY MONSTERS ON YOUR BOARD FOR GOAL 2 TO WORK***
Goal 1 Clear Iron Rich Rocks 0/10 GO (skip 100 gems) | reward: mithril
Goal 2 Wake up Yerik Bearson 0/1 GO (skip 20 gems) 99 hits | reward: 5 red peppers
Goal 3 Craft Warming Potion 0/2 GO (skip 150 gems) | reward: chestnuts | you can prepare these in advance and wait till this goal comes up as it is the collecting that completes the goal
Goal 4 Ask for Gifts 0/20 | reward: 1 warm stone
Note: On goal 3, you will need to CRAFT the warming potion; the ones in inventory do NOT count toward this goal but can be used later for the adventures, so they don't go to waste.


I cannot believe that Yerik's cursed sleep was causing the storm all along! He is ever so grateful for our healing potions and wanted to make you something as a thank you!
Chapter 10:
Goal 1 Purchase Holiday Uniform 0/1 GO | Market, 0 coin - decoration (goal will auto complete if you hit GO) | reward: holiday uniform
Goal 2 Carve a Nutcracker 0/1 GO | Workshop, 30 minutes - 1 Holiday Uniform, 30 living wood, 30 white petals | reward: chestnuts (if you want a second one, you can purchase an additional uniform for 10 gems in the workshop, but you must do it before you collect the first craft)
Goal 3 Journey to Snowy Mountains 0/4 GO (skip 160 gems) - 3 HOUR ADVENTURES!| reward: After you collect the 4th adventure, Yerik Bearson is in your inventory.

The Grand Prize is yours!

Dialogue to complete the goal:
Ivy: Yerik tells me that he'd love to stay in our kingdom! We should go visit him and tell him we'd love to have him here! I can't wait to see more of his carpentry work!
Ruler: Me either! What a wonderful addition to our family!
Ivy: Let's go celebrate with Yerik since he's decided to stay in the kingdom!
Yerik! Yerik! He's Our Bear!
* Say hi to Yerik 0/1 (skip 10 gems)
Reward: 1000 coin, 10 xp
Ivy: He's so fluffy!

So excited for this one! :D

Yerik Bearson is so Iorek Byrnison!! :cool:
The armoured polar bear from "Northern Lights" (aka "The Golden Compass" US) / "His Dark Materials" trilogy!
Absolutely one of the best stories ever!! (disregard the film version :rolleyes: ha)

Bravo Storm8!

Can't wait to welcome him to my kingdom!
Hopefully the quests won't be too gruelling.

Only a few hours left to wait... :eek:

Someone should start a thread for the goalbook quest for the Reindeer since it's separate. And the same dismal spawn rate again just like the raccoon & fawn. Be sure there are no other monsters on your game board! What's the deal with all the animals all of a sudden????

drop ~2 chestnuts on success

ashley224

8 farmhouses gave me 4 polar bears, one of them dropped 5 chestnuts rather than 2. Averaged 10-15 net energies to battle.

12-02-16, 12:24 PM
Okay, so when I checked my inventory, the chestnut info card said max is 99. I assume this is a bug that will be fixed soon.

I started a bug thread for this.

Cool... obtain @least 8-10 chestnuts a day for 13 days is enough for one reindeer! Definitely do-able since farmhouse collection time is only 10mins. Looks like everyone will get a pretty reindeer (or multiples) this event! Yay! Super excited!

12-02-16, 12:37 PM
Sometimes the polar bears only drop 1 chestnut., so far options are 1, 2, or 5 chestnuts, usually 2

Here is my 2 cents about low energy we're gonna be collect from ponds so fish so have a few pigs and chickens available so you can load up for the extra 10 energy from trading

Sadly true. Wats worse is that i forgot about the other goal wen i posted tat message. Guess i got too excited too soon. 😳

12-02-16, 01:01 PM
I live in CA so already started both! In Come all ye Reindeer, the first farmhouse I clicked on, the polar bear appeared. Takes 20 strokes, but I left a few to chop some rocks in the Beary Scary Blizzard so as not to attract a different beast. I got all 3 warming stones with 10 chops and took me to potion shop to brew a warming potion, which is Goal 2 of Chapter 1. Oh & I got 1 ice path in my inventory. Off to slay another polar bear in other quest while potion is brewing! I have now battled 2 Polaris bears. One gave me 4 energy back while battling and the second only 2. Both gave me 2 chestnuts each.

Apparently there is a limit on the Ice Paths. Tried to replace all my paths in my kingdom and got the message that I would have to upgrade to get more of this type of structure . . . Is there something I can sell to get more?

Today I noticed the new Ice Path and Snow Wall under the featured tab in the market.
I got really excited to be able to make my kingdom look like winter with walls and paths, instead of only using deco (which I usually don't take out of storage because of lack of space)

So I replaced all my floral topiary walls with snow walls, and started to replace my white royal road with ice road, only to get really disappointed when after replacing 99 of them I got the message I was at my maximum.. I didn't even replace half of the roads I have in my kingdom.

I really don't understand why there is a cap of 99 on roads! This way it's impossible to use the same type of road throughout your kingdom...

The event says it's only 9 days remaining!!!! Not expiring on the 15th as the headline here suggests... please update

It's a storybook event. Once you start, you have 10 days to complete the whole thing, but each chapter will only open up on the day you're on unless you use gems. For example, even if you finish chapter 1 today, you won't get chapter 2 until midnight PST. The same will go for chapter 3, etc. And even if you gem ahead to chapter 2 today, if you complete it, you'd still have to wait until chapter 3 would normally start for it to actually start.

For those who don't manually start the event, the event will start automatically in a couple days and everyone's event will will end on the 15th no matter what level of completion they're at.

Has anyone been able to collect warm stones after collecting the warming potion from the potion shop? I had enough to craft two, but after collecting the first potion, no more stones have dropped.

(I think I answered my own question...the potion is gone from the shop. I imagine there will have to be more adventures though.....built in speed bump I suppose.)

I'm still getting frost shards from the ponds, but the sword is still crafting at the moment. I'm wondering if this is like previous storybooks where the drops stop between chapters, but we end up needing more later? I'm considering collecting shards until I'm ready to sleep, then I'll collect the sword and send off the adventure....that way it'll be ready to collect first thing and I can start chapter two with a small head start on shards, the drop rate is as they usually are....very low. Lol.

I'd like to chop stones for the ore too, but don't want to waste energy, if I'll need to chop more for warm stones later.

I can't be certain if they stop dropping or just have a low drop rate. But you should definitely collect as many as possible while you're sure they are dropping. You'll need 2 more warming potion and 2 frozen swords in Chapter 3. So chop, chop and tap, tap in advance.

Thanks Katt...the potion did disappear from the shop, :( so I assume they won't start dropping again until we need them. I did manage to make two potions and two swords though! Learning S8's tricks. Lol! And I'll keep collecting shards til bedtime.

I'm not collecting the sword until I'm ready for bed. The Knights can adventure while I sleep. And the polar bears are great at keeping the boars away while checking ponds. :D

As for that darn buzzard....I think it's time to dust off Thurston's catapult! Its bad enough that it takes far more than it gives, but to disrupt play in the process is totally uncalled for. S8 please make it stop!

There was a app update in the App Store (IOS) yesterday, vs. 1.6.3

Thanks Meme, maybe it's different for Androids (me). I have the event without updating. My tab usually let's me know if I've had an auto update but nothing. Oh well, lucky I had a browse around forum. Thought usually events are on a Thursday so when I saw nothing I thought event would be next week.

It's a storybook event. Once you start, you have 10 days to complete the whole thing, but each chapter will only open up on the day you're on unless you use gems. For example, even if you finish chapter 1 today, you won't get chapter 2 until midnight PST. The same will go for chapter 3, etc. And even if you gem ahead to chapter 2 today, if you complete it, you'd still have to wait until chapter 3 would normally start for it to actually start.

For those who don't manually start the event, the event will start automatically in a couple days and everyone's event will will end on the 15th no matter what level of completion they're at.

Thanks for your response. I feel bad that you typed all of that when I know how the storybook events work.. I just felt it should be more clear as to how many total days we get to complete the event for others who may not know. It just seemed misleading with the start date and end date. But thank you for your explanation!!

Thanks!i can't give a definite answer, but a lot of players are still collecting shards while their swords are crafting under the assumption that the shards quit dropping after collecting the swords. I am doing the same thing-because I need to send my adventure off before I go to sleep and I'm trying to stay awake until my swords are done. Need Sleep!!!!

They come from the farmhouses? Only when you 'harvest' them or what? What do you have to do to make them come?

How is it that we keep having to defeat really cool animals in order to get some version of a deer?!?! My deer population is going to end up so out of control that my carriages start running over them!!
I guess when we got the genie lamp in the Sabina event someone shouldn't have wished for a million Bucks.
but for those that need the chestnuts and don't have a deer yet continue collecting from farmhouses.

How many times have you collected?

Well, 2 stables, and I collected each 3 times since the start of the event... only once a beast came out. :(
At this rate I will never make it and oooh I wanted that Rudolf so badly.
anyways thank you Ashley :)

The polar bears spawn from farmhouses, not stables. Plus they are cheap to make so maybe add a few more to increase your chances :)

I suggest, if you can, build a couple more farmhouses, they take minimal materials. Make sure you are collecting from farmhouses, not stables. Stable collection was the last event.

Oh no!!
Just visited a neighbour and saw that Yerik Bearson is 2x2!! :eek:

Please Storm8
Make Yerik Bearson 2x1
We don't have the space for 2x2!
2x2 is far too big for an animal!

(Also the shadow on the animation is too low and gives the appearance YB is floating, might need to tinker with that too.)

Please, please fix the footprint!
It will end up in most players' storage otherwise! ... Such a pity for such beautiful design and animation.

As always, thanks so much to those who are speeding up to let us know what is ahead! Does anyone know in chapter 3 when we can start crafting the magic sword while we are collecting from the iron rich rocks? Or does that not open until after? Trying to decide how much iron to stock up before chapter 3 starts.

Chapter 5:
Citizens have been complaining of bears drinking the taverns dry! Why have those feisty polar bears followed us back to the kingdom? Go check it out!

Goal 1: Refill the Tavern Brew. 0/1
(These bears are drinking all the brew!)
This is done in the kitchen - 1 warming potion, 3 wheat, 3 water. Takes 2 hrs.
Goal Prize - Water

Goal 2: Visit a tavern. 0/1
(Why are polar bears here?)
Goal Prize - Simple Feast

Goal 3: Defeat enraged Yerik Bearson. 0/1
(The brew seems to have made Yerik stronger.)
Goal Prize - Fur

Goal 3 was a little confusing. When I clicked on "Go", it took me to the market to buy Enraged Yerik Bearson for 0 coins. However, I already had a polar bear on the board at the farmhouse. So the option to buy went away, but I didn't have Yerik to fight. So I skipped it for 20 gems. Just make sure you don't have a beast spawned on your board and you shouldn't have any problem.

Chapter 6:
This storm is only getting worse, and there must be a reason that the bears are here! I want to meet with their leader, Yerik Bearson, and get to the bottom of this!

Goal 1: Chop Yellow Acer Trees 0/6
(For wood for the fire!) Go
Goal Prize - Living Wood

Goal 2: Craft an Ever-Hearth 0/1
(Let's chat around the fire.) Go
Needs 1 warming potion, 50 wood, 25 stone. Takes 2 hrs.
Goal Prize - 2 chestnuts

Goal 3: Cook Hearty Feasts 0/1
The ones in inventory DO count, so you can make this in advance.
Goal Prize - Flour

Goal 4: Visit Ivy's Hut 0/1
(Ivy wants to host!) Visit

The Ever-Hearth is a deco only, no drops.

Chapter 7:
Apparently Yerik and his bears are out of work and just sleep the days away! Let us help them get back on their feet! I hear Yerik is a master carpenter! A bear carpenter! Amazing!

Goal 1: Journey to the Frozen Forest 0/1
(Gather wood for Yerik) Go
Goal Prize - Faerie Jar

Goal 2: Carve a Wooden Sled 0/1
(Should help with this snow problem!) Go
This is done in the workshop - 50 wood, 5 simple glue - takes 30 minutes.
Goal Prize - Chestnuts

Goal 3: Train Polar Bearlings 0/10
(They offered to pull the sleds!) Go
Goal Prize - Snow Gate

kattkrazie
12-03-16, 10:04 AM
Chapter 8:
Citizens can barely get around in the snow now, and Yerik wants to help more! With enough sleighs and sleds, we should be able to traverse the snowy kingdom easily!

Goal 1: Chop Red Acer Trees 0/5
(Such a lovely color.) Go
Goal Prize - a glimmerbulb

Goal 2: Carve a red sleigh 0/1
(Yerik is so talented!) Go
This is in the workshop - 5 super glue, 50 wood, 4 red dye. Takes 1 hr.

Goal 3: Train Polar Bearlings 0/10
(They're getting pretty good!) Go
Goal Prize - a fish

kattkrazie
12-03-16, 10:10 AM
Chapter 9:
Yerik told me he was going to nap after finishing that sleigh, and ever since the storm has been completely out of control! I think we might have finally cracked the case of this mysterious storm!

Goal 1: Clear Iron Rich Rocks 0/10
(Wake Yerik with loud noises!) Go

Goal 2: Wake up Yerik Bearson 0/1
(He's asleep at the tavern!) Go
Goal Prize - 5 Red Peppers

Goal 3: Craft Warming Potion 0/2
(Yerik is snoring a snowstorm! Let's cure him!) Go
Goal Prize - Chestnuts

Goal 4: Ask for Gifts 0/20
(Get well gifts for Yerik!) (20 neighbor requests)
Goal Prize - 1 warm stone

On goal 3, you will need to CRAFT the warming potion, the ones in inventory did NOT count toward this goal but I used them later for the adventures, so they don't go to waste.

Chapter 10:
I cannot believe that Yerik's cursed sleep was causing the storm all along! He is ever so grateful for our healing potions and wanted to make you something as a thank you!

Goal 1: Purchase Holiday Uniform 0/1
(What luxurious fabrics!) Buy
This takes you to the market where you "buy" for 0 coins.

Goal 2: Carve a Nutcracker. 0/1
(Yerik's masterpiece!) Go
Done in workshop - 1 Holiday Uniform, 30 living wood, 30 white petals. Takes 30 minutes.
Goal Prize - Chestnuts

Goal 3: Journey to Snowy Mountains 0/4

After you collect the 4th adventure, Yerik Bearson is in your inventory.

Your best use of energy in the earlier chapters is to chop rocks and tap ponds while the shards and warm stones are dropping. Don't waste energy fighting the polar bears since you will need to fight 20 polar bears in the later chapters which will probably guarantee everyone a reindeer.

All of the items you craft will be deco, no drops.

Old Acer Trees work just fine so no need to grow new ones if you already have old ones on your board. Some of mine just had one chop left on them and they counted. Be sure to keep growing red peppers between chapters since they take so long to grow.

Good luck. This seems like a very doable event.

I agree. It seems like a lot of thought was put into this quest. We chop trees because we need the wood later, we chop iron rich rocks because we need lots of iron. And even though it appears at first to be 2 events, they are definitely linked and work together.

Great job, S8.

Unfortunately, if you start a chapter early, you have to wait even longer for the next chapter to start. It's not beneficial to use gems to start a chapter early unless it's a difficult chapter that might require 2 days. None of these chapters were that difficult in my opinion.

In your case, if you use gems to start chapter 3 early, the timer will show 35 hrs. to start the next chapter.

Okay so I did the math and figured out how many warming potions and frost swords you need in all.

You'll need 14 warming potions and 16 frost swords to complete the whole thing. However, if you're gonna complete them all at once, you should only have 12 warming potions made before chapter 9 bc that one actually requires you to make 2 as a goal.

That's 42 warm stones and 64 frost shards in all.

I figured it'd be helpful for those of us in the early chapters since they're not super energy intensive.

Started the event today, so the last day of this event will be on a free day. Wanted to wait longer but work will get in the way. Looks doable. Crafting the sword now, and collecting extra shards. Too late to collect more warming stone as I already collected the warming potion. Will need to keep a better eye on this thread.

Your math is off. I'm not sure who's right about how many warming potions we need to journey to the snowy mountains (gilachaya says 2 but Katt says 1) but I'm going by katt's info. Anyway, you're missing the second trip to the snowy mountains in chapter 4 and the potions that need to be made in Chapters 5 and 9. And this one doesn't matter in the overall math but you also attributed the ones for chapter 3 to chapter 2.

Here was my math:


Chapter sword potion
1 1 1 (1 trip to the forest)
2 0 0
3 4 2 (2 trips to the snowy mountains)
4 2 2 (2 trips to the forest)
5 0 1 (1 potion to refill the tavern brew)
6 1 (1 potion to craft the ever-heath)
7 1 1 (1 trip the forest)
8 0 0
9 2 (brew 2 warming potions)
10 8 4 (4 trips to the snowy mountains)

Katt, I was just about to post that you can chop several chops on your Acer trees ahead of time when you have extra energy so you just need a chop or two to fell them. But I see you already posted it. A good way to "store" energy for the future. :). Thanks for all your help!

While chopping trees part way will save you energy later when required to chop down the trees, keep in mind that we need 150 wood to complete this event. Chopping the 5 red acer trees in chapter 8 where it is required will help replenish your resources as well as complete the goal.

Can I confirm the hot rocks only drop from outcrops? I have some stone piles to use up and wondered if it was worth it? Getting very short of energy on this - hot rocks only 1-3 per outcrop.

Thanks :)

For me only Rock Outcropping seems to produce Warm Stones! All others are 0 hit so far.

Just to correct some math issues, if you want to have the minimum energy usage for the most resource consuming elements in the event.

Here the detailed consumption of swords & potions. Production can only happen during the chapter goals where one or both are needed!


Consumption Sword Potion What
Chap 1 1 1 Journey to the frozen forest
Chap 2
Chap 3 2 2 Journey to the Snowy Mountains
Chap 4 2 2 Journey to the Frozen Forest
Chap 5 1 Tavern Brew
Chap 6 1 Ever-Hearth
Chap 7 1 1 Journey to the Frozen Forest
Chap 8
Chap 9 Craft 2 Warming Potion (no consumption)
Chap 10 8 8 Journey to Snowy Mountains
Total 14 16


In terms of base materials:
Total Shard: 56
Total Stone: 48

If you want one item of each as a relic in your inventory you need in total:
Total Shard: 61
Total Stone: 52

After the adventure, I found a plate with something to eat. It looks like a roast !!
Goal 3 (from chapter 3) says "Go".
When you go, it brings you to the plate. You tap on it. The plate disappears, and the YB appears !
You need to fight 50 times, and then, chapter 3 is finished.

Important : I didn't have any monster when I tapped on the finished adventure !

When you defeat the yb, you get one snow wall. The adventure disappears, as does the ability to craft swords and potions. So I'm not wasting energy to see if the drops remain, because I assume they are also gone again until the next adventure is needed. Thankfully I crafted some extras, and also collected enough materials to to craft a few more before collecting the adventure. I'm waiting for peppers to grow anyway.

My advice is to keep collecting and making potions and swords as long as possible before collecting the adventure and defeating yb. Also, make sure you have no monsters on the board before tapping the bear bait!!

So far to get two chestnuts I have to defeat a polar bear at 20 chops. At this rate I'll never get enough chestnuts in 11 days. I'm up to bear 4- when I get to bear 5 can I park a troll so the bears stop popping up and get the chestnuts just from farmhouses? Or do I have to defeat bears to get them?

You have to defeat the bears to get chestnuts. Each bear drops 1, 2, or 5 chestnuts with 2 being the most common in my experience. Later in the story some chapters require defeating polar bears also, so that will help. The good news is, it doesn't take all 20 chops to defeat the bears, and they also drop some energy in return. Good luck!

Question, if I do craft a reindeer, does the option stay to craft a second? I noticed the 99 limit is now 200, enough to save 100 x2 and craft simultaneously. Maybe I need to do that? Thank you.

Ok, my math was right the first time I wrote this. I need 125 chestnuts for a reindeer. So I cannot save enough for two simultaneously. But since the craft remains, that's ok. Thanks everyone for the info.

According to post 1, Chapter 3 requires only one adventure. (I only had to do one. The chapter ended after I fought YB.) I have a feeling you had to go on a second adventure to get another bear bait. The last step in chapter 3 is to fight yerik bearson. Clicking on the bait works like a skunkupine or boar trap and it triggers YB. I could be wrong, but I think you'll have to keep adventuring as long as you have a monster parked on your board.

Additional info for those not there yet....the bait did not go into inventory for me. It was in an adventure box, and I had to choose whether to place or store it.

Disclaimer!!! The question below is a hypothetical pondering only!! I DID NOT try it, and have no idea if it's even possible!!
I just thought of an interesting possibility.....I wonder if it would be possible for those wanting a souvenir bait to place it WITHOUT CHOPPING and send off another adventure, then chop it and fight YB after collecting the second adventure?? :confused:
Of course that would also require making two extra swords and potions, which I wouldn't want to do considering the energy required.

I have been thinking toward doing it, but as you said the energy needs is huge! I don't have an army of alis that can sustain me. I used the weekend to stock sword and potions as during week days I don't have much time to log in.

PS: As I have YB on the board, I am not so sure. Well I can hold off the last blow and see if I can gather a bit more warn stone, the swords are the easy bit. I just need to craft my extra one!

I just read everyone else's take on the trap for Yerik, and I'm like, ahh, I ddin't wait. I already defeated him. Sometimes Inwonder where my abilities to stratigize are. I certainly can't do a quest without the help of everyone here.

On that note, I'm liking the quest. Anyone notice how the theme for this is similiar to the Golden Compass? The bears, especially the main prize reminds me of Iorek Byrnison who becomes Lyra's ally. He has the scar, the armour and everything! So nice. Go S8 for being inventive.

I don't have time to wade through the mix between polar bears and Beary Scary blizzard event. When I finished chapter 3 the ability to make potion & swords disappeared.

Place your box and tap on it and the polar bear pops up and you have to hit it 50 times that completes chapter 3 and you should not need to go on another adventure, but you will then have to wait for chapter 4 to open up.
The options to get warm rocks and frozen shards disappear until needed for future chapters.

Unfortunately the ability to get warm rocks and frozen shards is only possible when you have not finished chapter 3, it should be possible again when chapter 4 starts for you. Delay finishing the adventures required in each chapter if you intend to continue collecting shards/rocks for potion and swords or make them. I feel your pain, I work too.

After the timer starts the screen shows horse running "loading..." Circle and when it stops my gems are replaced and workshop is empty showing 124/125 again! After trying twice I reloaded the game and tried 3 more times.. Same thing. It just will not make the reindeer! Help!

I tried crafting reindeer again, then the potion in ch 1 act 2, the potion stayed crafting the reindeer reset again.. Don't know what's going on, even tried to hurry completion but that didn't work either

There seems to be a tiny glitch when you use gems to buy the final chestnut. The same sequence of events you describe happened to me as well. Even putting the reindeer in storage first and closing the game didn't work.

The only solution I found was to fight another polar bear to get the last chestnut. Then I was able to craft the reindeer

And for fun, I decide to make some Icy Sliding Ski. But the result is not quit enjoyable... I hope S8 want to make some change. So there is not a hole between the path.

It seemed like I was short from the start. We'll see, I'll keep trying. But it seemed like a contest I couldn't win because of the time. I'd like a bear if I can get one. But I won't waste gems.

Anyone know if we can pre-chop the Iron Rocks for chapter 9? (just like the Acer trees)

Yeah pretty sure that'll work ...
I have all mine pre chopped ready to go :)

Nah you're exactly on track!

... I would recommend waiting while you have Yerik Bearson appear the first time (in Chapter 3) to gather all your warm stones (from rocks) and frost shards (from ponds) before defeating him. Also pregrow/chop your Acer Trees and prechop your Iron Rich Rocks and gather as much as you can of the following in these early stages ...

All up you need these special items:

48 Warm Stones / 16 Warming Potions (48 warm stones, 160 hot peppers, 160 water) - used 3 already - don't brew 2
56 Frost Shards / 14 Frost Swords (56 frost shards , 280 iron ore) - used 3 already
7 Red Acer Trees
5 Yellow Acer Trees
13 Iron Rich Rocks - used 3 already
3 Grits - used all 3 by now
4 Simple Feasts - for Frozen Forrest adventures - used 1 already
25 Furs - for Snowy Mountains adventures - used 5 already
1 Hearty Feast
30 Living Wood
30 White Petals
4 Red Dye

when you visit the tavern, Yerik appears immediatly, it needs 90 fights to be killed !

Maybe the beginning post can be amended to show this SW. Because I would have fallen into that trap too if not for this post. I thought he was on the market. So that is pretty confusing.

The Knights aren't too smart. They bring warming potion along with their frozen swords.

Well they are Knights. History shows you can't always accuse them of being the sharpest sword at the blacksmith 😜

Thanks for posting the picture Irma... it's similar to the horse track path as it also has that hole in the middle when you join them together. The blue colour really lights up the board.

Thank you riverly .. but I'm LL and have not yet any of these nice things like allicorns or manticores etc. .. I collect milk and eggs regularly and also harvest wheat, sugar and other crops which gives beasts but the spawn rate is rare (and I also have not so much energy for that..) .. but I asked now my neighbors if they could gift me some, hope this helps.

Does anyone know if Warm Stone and Frost Shard could stop dropping during the process of a chapter (not in between chapters).

I'm currently at Chapter 1 and I seem to not be able to get any more of those 2 items after finishing goal 4 (craft the sword). I don't to waste more energy T_T

They stop dropping when you don't need them for the goal were you are busy :-/

12-06-16, 07:56 AM
As far as I can see, stones and icicles only drop during a goal when you need them, up to when you finish making what they were for. So once you've collected the last potion or sword or been on the last quest that's it, they don't drop. This makes it a little tough to build up a store of them without falling behind on the rest of the game. I'm aiming to be a little over half in stock for the last day, but much furore than that will make me too late.

Yesterday while waiting for the 2nd adventure, I collected as much from ponds & outcroppings as possible. I didn't collect the adventure either until early evening, getting as many stones & frost shards until I was ready to whack the bears in the last goal of the chapter. So hold off collecting as long as you can to build up the needed crafting items.

The craft is gone from workshop. In future chapters, try to collect when the craft is active in workshop or for the potion is active in potion shop. But! You also have to watch the timing. For lower level players it is a juggling act between collecting, growing crops, getting other resources but at the same time dealing with fewer sources of energy.
Good luck!!
And also keep checking page one of the forum for what's coming up ahead.

Also, I'm a long time player, and I am NOT trying for the reindeer. Too much energy needed. If I do get it, it's because of the goals for YB and tapping farm houses when I'm "caught up ".

Help. I am confused. I finished chapter three except for the last part where it says to defeat Yerik Bearson. I have already done the adventure etc and the the last thing I did was collect from a tavern. Then a dire boar was spawned from that and I defeated him. But what happened to my Yerik Bearson I am supposed to defeat? I think I already did that after the adventure. When I click on the go from the chapter guide it just takes me back to my other tavern which is not ready to collect for another five hours. What do I do? Do I have to do another adventure or collect from my tavern again or did something screw up somewhere?

PrincessCelestian
12-06-16, 10:38 AM
Once you collect from the second adventure in chapter 4 you can no longer collect warming stones or frost shards or craft potions and shards. So make sure that you stock up as much as you can before collecting that second adventure.

Do you mean chapter 3 or chapter 5? The YB bait in chapter three comes from the adventure. You should get a box and when you click on it you can place the bait or store it. If this is the case, then I would look in your inventory. If you mean chapter 5 then I cannot help you as that is tomorrow for me.

Make sure there are no other monsters in your kingdom. Then collect from your tavern when it's ready. You should be good.

The same thing happened to me. A dire boar spawned from the tavern instead of Yerik Bearson. I think it is just really bad luck as I have never had a dire boar spawn when collecting from the tavern. Fingers crossed that when we collect again we get the correct beast!

Not sure if this is the right place, but I need help with this quest. Whenever I try to start the Beary Scary Blizzard Quest the game will reload after some seconds and anything I collected will disappear but for example neither the rock outcropping I mined nor the engery used for it will come back. It`s pretty frustrating :(

It takes time for the game to sync if you are just entering the game from another program you are using. If you are worried about losing anything always force quit the game and re-open before you start collecting anything

That sounds like a nuisance! Reinstall your game and see if that corrects it. You may also want to force close your apps and restart your device. I find I need to restart my device every day or 2 so that I can open my game and make everything load. Let us know how you get on.... If it still doesn't work, can you please post in the Bugs forum (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?95987-Beary-scary-blizzard). Use this thread. :)

Is it possible to make two nutcrackers? I'm pretty sure my castle will need two to stand guard out front. And nutcrackers are my favorite Christmas decoration. I have an entire army of nutcrackers in real life. So I definitely need more than one in CS.

I didn't try to craft 2 nutcrackers, but I don't think you'll be able to because you can only purchase 1 holiday uniform. You might be able to craft a second one in your other workshop if you buy the holiday uniform with gems. But you'd have to do them at the same time since the craft will disappear once you've crafted the first one. Good luck.

After you finish the event, the decorations you crafted are available in the market for gems. The nutcracker is 100 gems which might be cheaper than using gems to purchase the holiday uniform to craft a second nutcracker.

This happened to me too.. I had in mind to defeat my polar monster but I forgot and collected from the Tavern. Luckily I had a second Tavern out so did not get held up.
Do suggest to place a second Tavern, cause u get there quicker than u expect. PirateTaverns do NOT count.
