Dialogue Guide


PART 1:
Ivy: Oh, today has been so frustrating!
Ruler: What's wrong, Ivy? Nothing serious, I hope!
Ivy: No. I'm just disappointed. I wanted to plant new flowers, but I am out of space!
Ruler: Hmm... I wonder if there is a way to create a more compact garden? Compact plants... Oh! I wonder if I could breed some new smaller plants species!
Ruler: I'm sure with your skills you could totally do it!
Ivy: Aww, shucks! Thanks, Ruler! I'm excited! I'm going to get started on plant research right away!
Ruler: Excellent! I hope we can increase the kingdom's output with this!


PART 2:
Old Thomas: Hello, Young Ruler! You seem rather busy, and I have not seen Ivy in ages! Could I be of any assistance?
Ruler: Hello, Old Thomas! Ivy and I have been experimenting with space-efficient plant life! And right now I think she is researching...
*A loud BOOM can be heard in the distance...*
Old Thomas: My goodness! Miss Ivy, are you okay?!
Ivy: I thought I almost had it! Buy my cauldron exploded, and you can the result... Maybe a larger cauldron would help?
Old Thomas: I am certain I have read of similar plant work before... I just need to find the scroll! In the meantime, make sure you have a Storage Cellar! I will explain when I return!
Ruler: Wow! Look at Old Thomas go! He must be as excited about this as we are!
Ivy: It certainly seems so! I wonder what he meant about needing a Storage Cellar... Oh well! In the meantime, let's get back to work! After I take a quick bath.


PART 3:
Old Thomas: I have returned, Young Ruler! And with the scroll as promised!
Ruler: Very good, Old Thomas! What did you find out?
Old Thomas: Ahem. According to "Hefty Harvests ad Happy Horticulture", we must build an Arboretum!
Ivy: Ooo~ What is that? It sounds fancy!
Old Thomas: You see, Miss Ivy, one can combine the properties of two plants into one hybrid plant! It is simply magnificent!
Ivy: Wow! That's like exactly what we needed! Excellent!
Old Thomas: Once we build an Arboretum, you can experiment with hybrid plant life!
Ivy: So we can make all sorts of new plants?
Old Thomas: Precisely! I am excited to record our discoveries!
Ruler: The possibilities seem endless! Let's build this Arboretum! I hope that with the new plants we can make our kingdom even more beautiful!


PART 4:
Ivy: I'm so excited! I want to get working on my super flowers right away!
Ruler: As do I! I think we can really beautify and better the kingdom with these new plants!
Old Thomas: Yes, very good. But before you two start, I need to explain about the Storage Cellar. The Arboretum can ONLY use plants stored within the Storage Cellar.
Ruler: So I need to place Ivy's plants in the Storage Cellar?
Old Thomas: Yes! This way we do not use plants that you had not intended to breed. So place any plants for the Arboretum in the Storage Cellar first!
Ivy: Okay, that makes sense! I'll grab my plants and place them in the Storage Cellar!

Visit Thomas x2

Part 3
Sorry I can't remember exact wording

Buy arboretum (15000 coins?)
Build it

Part 4
Craft Iceland poppy shrub (press fuse and it takes Iceland poppy, 2 lumin essences and water from your inventory, duration 1 day)

Reward 5 gems

Yep...the reward at the end, I guess, is the Arboretum. I see it in the Market place.

Gotta wait on Ivy though since I wasn't planning on an update today.

Hey, S8. You keep giving us items to place on our game board but no expansions! We need expansions to place them or, otherwise, something has to go in storage :(

Thanks, zoroak, for posting the steps.

It's a crafting building. Final reward is 5 gems. See post 2 above. :)

I have had a bunch of them for quite awhile so, unfortunately, probably only a few different colored petals.

The goals are super easy and do not require much use of energy (6 only in total for all 4 parts unless you don't meet the building requirements) and they don't appear to be timed.

These could be handy! I like the ability to use one energy to collect several petals at once. Even better if the new plants are 1x1 (fingers crossed)

And speaking of handy things to have....The last pic is my favorite!!! Now we NEED a pop-up like this that says "X-amount of gems will be spent! Would you like to continue?"

Ps. Lorrainne, I'm suddenly having trouble with the forum too.

I believe only the Flower garden is 2x2, the rest are 1x1. timers vary from 2-5-10-20 min.

Yes, unless you got those red tranium via Adventure. I did get one

01-19-17, 05:44 PM
So, to craft the Red Trillium bush we have to use 3 Red Trillium flowers/plants ....which I think can only be gotten for 35 gems each.
I like the thought of multiple petals from all these newbies, and they are quite pretty.

Edit.. just saw above post. I didn't know Red Trillium plants could be gotten from adventures. I have never got one yet.

The living wood glitch is no biggie, but making you start over is a definite biggie! I hope the force close fixed it?
Thanks for looking up that adventure. I just sent out a feral lands in the barracks earlier today, maybe I'll get another red trillium. (I hope I hope I hope! Lol) I have 4 and I know I bought at least one of them....and at least one was in one of those bundles from the pile of gifts a few Christmases ago. I can't remember where the other two came from.
That's my only reservation about this one. Giving up a gem only purchase to craft something. As for the other flowers, I'm all in!

I had to start over...smh. Force closed several times to no avail. But that's ok since I had used some gems & they were back. No problem. First time I've ever had a rollback like that....lol

I'm not sure I wanna use a gem plant either, unless & until I know for sure I get at least the same drops guaranteed. So 3 trilliums to craft, I better get at least 3 on each & every tap of that bush. :)

Good news about the gems! I just collected from Ivy and held my breath. :)
I made it through the dialog and got in the 1st visit to Old Thomas. So far so good. I'm very surprised they released this today with the storybook going on. But I'm glad, it's kinda nice to see Ivy blowing things up again! :cool:

Ps. I agree 100% about the red trilliums! But I'm looking also at how much less energy and space it'll take to collect tons of the other color petals for updates (and maybe those elves). I'm one of the fans of the mythic mushrooms just because of their multiple drops, just wish they were only 1x1.

Just crafting the first one now, but I read -lol somewhere- that you get 3 petals per plant. So that is good for using less energy.

Not happy that i have to forfeit my 'real money' plants though, so I cant see myself making that shrub. Maybe not the big garden one either.


Spiritwind, can we have some confirmation about what the drop rate for the Spellbound Dew from these new plants will be please ? :)

This is to be remembered.. if 'gem plants' are in your kingdom.. they will NOT be used. Only plants that are stored in your Inventory will be consumed.. and after using the 'Confirmation Tab'

Does it show anywhere the time between collects for the shrubs? the information says it's three times, but if I'm going to use 3 red plants I'd like to know what the time is.

No info yet..
I would suggest waiting until SW opens the official Sticky Thread with all the details before taking risks.. so there are no surprises. No rush here.. it's not timed.

I couldn't remember which adventure so I checked The Hub. It's a possible box drop from Feral Lands. I think I've gotten one from an adventure.

Yes, you can. Buts it's a random drop from Feral Lands Adventure
Sending knights there with two Halls and one Barracks increase the chance.

If you're talking about the last one, that requires 3 red flowers -
mine dropped 5 red petals and one spellbound dew, next drop was red 3 petals. timer is 20 minutes

Hi all,

1. I'll check if spellbound dew can drop from new shrubs (and rate if I can find out);
2. I want to check on the level required. This is definitely main story (hence post 1 in new format).
3. I'll double check about the red trillium. This is the only gem plant. The dialogue does say it will be consumed, so be careful.

when I'm back home I'll add more detail and maybe even create a new hub thread (? Maybe?) about the flowers and add all of the pictures to post 1 etc. :)

The living wood glitch is no biggie, but making you start over is a definite biggie! I hope the force close fixed it?
Thanks for looking up that adventure. I just sent out a feral lands in the barracks earlier today, maybe I'll get another red trillium. (I hope I hope I hope! Lol) I have 4 and I know I bought at least one of them....and at least one was in one of those bundles from the pile of gifts a few Christmases ago. I can't remember where the other two came from.
That's my only reservation about this one. Giving up a gem only purchase to craft something. As for the other flowers, I'm all in!

I agree with PrincessCB.. not keen on giving up a gem item for crafting. I have 4RedTrilliums but bought them all. Didn't know FeralAdventures gave these, but I'll certainly try.. and if one is gifted.. I'll donate.

My initial response is that S8 did a great job with this release. This seems to be direct response to what everyone has been asking for. There have been numerous requests to store animals and then be able to collect in bulk -i.e. use less lives and take up less space on the board. So it's not animals, but flowers have been in higher demand lately with the introduction og the Rune Market. If we craft these items, we can put one new item out in place of 3 existing flowers and use only 1 life to collect what it used to take us 3 lives to collect. It may not have been our first choice for animals, but it is something. It gives those of us that have completed the story line a way to amuse ourselves and create pretty items. Plus its not timed which is a refreshing change.

hold up, i spent gems on the red flowers and if i fuse them i will lose them? am i going to get more then 3 petals? i have 8 red tranium or whatever they are called at 35 gems i think it was? a pop...... am i missing something? so gem purchases will be lost?
Actually you won't loose them.. they'll be still yours
You will fuse 3 of your Red Trilliums together (now occuping 3 squares) into 1 Red Trillium Shrub (which occupies 1 square) and collect 3times the amount of petals with 1 energy. The trilliums are still yours in another form.
Must say it sounds interesting as a space saver.. and also energy saver.

For me, the concern is more about using something I paid gems for, to craft something that may or may not function as the origional purchase did. Right now, they are dropping multiple petals with each collection. But what if that becomes bad for the games economy? And the drops get decreased? I will be angry if I convert my 3 red trilliums to 1 red trillium shrub and it suddenly starts dropping only one petal (for the economy don't cha know).
As many of the long time players can attest, sometimes things DO change :(
The coin flowers don't matter so much, because it's easy to just buy more.

That said, I'll probably end up doing it anyway, because I love the idea of saving space and energy. And truthfully, it's all just pixels. It's not like the red trilliums can be sold back for gems anyway. Sigh.

@ Princess CB
It is a fact that drops changed during the years.. this no one can deny and we have no power over this fact. My plans for the meantime are to craft all the others.. then.. insist on the Feral Adventure hoping I get some free Red Trilliums which honestly I've never seen, then craft them for last.
An important question.. will the spellbound dew drop from these new shrubs? Not that the drop rate has been high from the flowers, but we do need to collect them eventually.. and some players depend on the petal collecting.

If I have enough gems and use the 20 to skip "Build the Arboretum" will that auto build it for me & I still get the rewards of 500 coins, 10 experience & 5 gems? I am very tempted to use the gems as it will take me ages to gather/build all the supplies it requires. I'm already going on a week & a half for stinking Sabina's Castle! LOL!

I had to re-read to find this one. It almost got lost in the shuffle. This seems like a good sign for petals and dew drops! (But it seems like I read that regular read trilliums offered the best chance of dew drops anyway)
Also, the timers seem to be the same as the timers on the single plants. I only have the iceland poppy shrub so far, and haven't collected from it yet, as I am maxed on all petals and dew drops....will update when I collect.

I'm sorry I can't properly answer your question, because I've never gem skipped building a building. But I can tell you from personal experience, I did gem skip Griselda's carriage and statue, and I did NOT get them, it just cleared the goal from my goal book. And I'd have to pay the gems again to buy them from the market place.
My first instinct is that you will be out the gems and still left with an unfinished building.

Fortunately, this one is not timed and it doesn't seem to be a critical part of the story line. We won't know until future updates if there are any follow up goals. My advice is to treat it like a long term goal and work on Sabina and the timed events first. I know it doesn't feel like it now, but soon enough you will run out of things to do and you'll be glad this one is there. (I wish I had a second chance to craft those things I skipped! Lol)

****Ps. The more I think about it, the more I am convinced that skipping for 20 gems will only clear the goal from your book, and the building will not auto-complete.

If it can't be stored or sold, then you are correct, it can't be removed. :(
I offer the same advice as my previous post. Hide it in a corner, maybe surround it with trees? And treat it as a long term goal. In the meantime ask neighbors to gift you earth wisps as often as possible! :o Good luck with the expansions!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only benefit I'm seeing to the shrubs is that they use up less board space. For example, It looks like you can combine the 3 red trillium into a shrub that you can get 3 red petals every 22 hours. But even if you only have 1 plant out, you can collect it every 20 minutes (so 3 times an hour) and get 1 or 2 petals a collection. Therefore in one hour you get as many from 1 plant as you can get in 1 day from a shrub.

You will only skip the goal. You still have to build it. Not really worth the gem investment. Yes it will take a long time for lever level players to build this building.

@ ShibuyaCloth, on the info cards for the new plants it's says 22 hr collection time. I believe the 22 hrs is the time it takes to craft the plant rather than the amount of time between collections from the plant after it is crafted. Is it possible to clarify this on the info cards for people?

The timers on the new shrubs/bushes are the same as the timers on the original plants. This means you can collect at least 3 petals with one energy every 20 minutes for the red trillium shrub. So less space and less energy for the same results!

From 1 Rocket Larkspur Flower the regular drop rate has always been 1/2 petals.

There's nothing wrong with your logic as far as I can tell. I was afraid this would end up falling into the 'too good to be true' category....
Which is exactly why I am so hesitant to use the red trilliums.....right now 3 plants ALWAYS give me a minimum of 3 petals. Usually more.
When the drop rates decrease on the new shrubs, I can always buy more of the coin plants, not so with the gem ones. (Well, technically, I CAN, but I won't)

So, to craft the Red Trillium bush we have to use 3 Red Trillium flowers/plants ....which I think can only be gotten for 35 gems each.
I like the thought of multiple petals from all these newbies, and they are quite pretty.

Edit.. just saw above post. I didn't know Red Trillium plants could be gotten from adventures. I have never got one yet.


I couldn't remember which adventure so I checked The Hub. It's a possible box drop from Feral Lands. I think I've gotten one from an adventure.


Wooo power of the post...yesterday I got red Trillium from adventure! Which adventure? I've no idea. I never remember where I've sent my guys. It's a long time til we collect from them.

I refuse to spent 35gems when I have the flowers and its the only flower I want to craft? Please move if not in right place. Anything would be appreciated tnx......Helen

They need to be in your storage for crafting in the arboretum.

So just store them & they'll be available for crafting.

Wooo power of the post...yesterday I got red Trillium from adventure! Which adventure? I've no idea. I never remember where I've sent my guys. It's a long time til we collect from them.
Thanks meme for posting. I must make a habit of visiting the hub...and Feral Lands lol.

Same thing happened to me, and it was only my 2nd time adventuring into the Feral Lands.;)

That was lucky for you,35 gems worth.
When I collect something good from adventure I can never remember where I sent the Knights, and it doesn't say at the time of collection.
So...now I've purposely sent them to Feral Lands AND I remember lol, BUT I don't remember which of 2 kingdoms I sent them from..sighhh

Boy howdy, it uses a lot of luminescence! Which takes a lot of earth wisps. I guess another long term goal to replace all my flowers with the bushes. But maybe someday....... I'll get it done. Right now it just seems easier to tap on the flowers I need.

And even the regular shrubs from coin flowers are going to be useful, i' m chronically short on purple petals and it's nice saving the energy.

I am also happy with this. I don't normally have flowers out except the faerie flowerbeds - only get them out if I need to stock up on petals quickly. So the shrubs will be much better. And they look prettier than I was expecting when I saw thirst pictures. Plan to make one of each colour and the flower garden to start with. I have no problem using the red trilliums to make the shrub,given they just sit I storage most of the time :)

Here we can see that the Shrubs drops are not tripled, as said.
3 (min) to 6 (max) should be the drops.. as flowers very often give 2 petals each.. calculating 3 flowers are used in the craft. :confused:
Very handy space wise, but I guess we pay for the energy saved.

I've never had a tripple drop from a flower! Does it need a quest to activate that? (Like the farming, that gives more + energy after I finished a quest.)
I'm very lucky if I get 6 petals out of 5 droppings. So for me it's very useful to get more petals for the same energy...

I think it may be a wording issue in the description. Instead of 'triple the drop rate', I think they meant the bushes/shrubs drop triple the amount of a single plant. But even by that definition, we should still get a minimum of 3 petals from every collection with the possibility of up to 6 (until we are maxed out of course). Considering that my single plants rarely drop 2 petals anyway, I'll be happy with the minimum 3 petals from the shrubs, due to the space and energy savings. :D (as long as it remains at least 3!)

I've never gotten more than 2 petals from a single flower either. So far, there is no boost or knowledge shard that increases flower drop rates. But that would be a nice addition to the game!

In this instance, Moon was referring to the promised triple drops from the new shrubs and bushes that we can craft in the arboretum.

I don't expect 6max drops either.. but as you said "wording issue in the description" to be changed.
That you need 3 ordinary flowers to make this magical space-saving shrub/bush, that's ok.. but shrub/bush does NOT triple drops.. at least, not yet ;)

Hi all, 2 things....
1. (You know this now, but posting anyway), the gem red trillium plants will definitely be consumed if you craft that shrub.
2. Spellbound Dew is a drop from all shrubs. The flower garden will not drop spellbound dew. The drop rate will likely be low given dew from flowers are rare. We'll need to track this ourselves.

hkcorrigan
01-25-17, 07:31 PM
Since many of my spellbound dew came from my red trillium, I'm hesitant to craft a shrub with them until I know if the crafted shrubs drop the spellbound dew too

SW just answered my question. I haven't gotten the spellbound dew from any other flower except the red trillium so far. I will wait to craft the shrub until I receive more trillium from adventures.

Thanks to the forum for reminding me about those feral adventures!!my goal is to combine the flowers I have into as many shrubs that I can. Even the red. The way I see it, I'm not losing gems, just combining 3 plants into 1. Like was mentioned, space and energy savings. Plus I like the way they look.
Also I have gotten dew from all kinds of flowers, especially when refilling my inventory after a trade. Always a nice surprise to see one drop

My concern with crafting three of my flowers into one bush is not the drop rate, but wondering if/how they will count when we have a goal to tap on flowers...? If we have an event that, say, requires us to water 30 Iceland poppies, will the shrubs count and, if so, would we only have to tap 10 of them since the actually are 3 plants in one? SW-would appreciate some incite into this before I go crazy crafting a bunch of bushes.

My concern has been whether we get spellbound dew from them. As I'm busy trying to collect from flowers to build my stocks of the super dooper blocks (can't remember their name) they're pretty decoration for now though.

this is an excellent question. i think shrubs won't count at all during these types of goals. (the same way the haunted cottage does not count as a cottage, etc). i will rethink my conversion plans with this in mind. thank you for raising the issue.

Saftest way is to have both.. flowers don't cost much and we have many. Make shrubs for mass collections but keep also single flowers for event watering purpose.
Problem is the gem flower, Red Trillium.. total 105 gems each Shrub! I made 1 but won't convert other 3. I don't have so many as to be an energy-waste when collecting. Shrubs and flowers give the same amount of petals, not triple as said.. only use of energy is less but not significant when collecting from 3 red flowers.. usually we all have few of these.

You will need three of the red trillium plants in order to craft a shrub. And the plants you use to craft them have to be in storage to be able to craft any of the shrubs. Those on the board do not count in the arboretum.

For this reason.. do NOT convert ALL your flowers into Shrubs. Keep Shrubs for mass collecting, but also keep single flowers for particular collecting.. you can always place them last minute as they mature quickly.

It's like the Pirate's Tavern.. sometimes it counts in like the normal Tavern.. sometimes it doesn't.

collecting 3 petals each time from any single shrub is perfectly correct. you fused 3 flowers into one. it's not luck.. it's right. extra drops more than 3 is luck. any single flower does have lucky drops of 2. add them together.. and sometimes! u should receive them.

I know it's always at least 3 petals! But my White Trillium Shrub defenitly gives more times extra drops and always +2 so far! Much better then Iceland Poppy Shrub less times and always +1 so far! And I didn't had more often extra drops (always +1 ofcourse) with the single flowers... Can't get more data now, maxed out on white petals. 😉

Tap the Edit button, tap the flower, tap the chest. It should disappear from your game board & now be in your storage.

Re: energy

Moving up a level can bump you over the level limit. Right now 40 energy is the top limit for the free 3-minute 1 energy addition. Collecting from energy sources or leveling up can put you over that limit until it's used up and your back to the 3-minute additions.
