Hints for success in Season 7!

1. Read the Monster Hunt thread in the Hub - all information is linked above for convenience.


2. Where to collect from to get a beast:

* Glimmer Golem - all horses, clydesdales, (not horses from Baron's Tent)

* Blue Dire Boar - dead tree (once a day)

* Flyger - cows, pigs. Gem cows seem to have a much higher spawn rate.

* Fangbeasts - all normal animals (cows, chickens, pigs), Hot Pepper, Carrot, Trees, some Buildings (stable, hatchery, farmhouses), Fangbeast Trap (5 gems), Glimmeregg Bunny, Season 5 Training Dummy

* Level 5 Jousting Arena - spawns a random beast at collection - skunkupine, fangbeast, dire boar (they all drop silver tokens once defeated)

* Season 5 Training Dummy - spawns a fangbeast (not every time)


3. Read the Monster Hunt thread in the Hub (it's worth repeating!)

I've killed 2 Flygers and have 5 flyger tokens so about 2-3 tokens per thing for me.

I did really well with my first Flyger and got 5 tokens. 3 from the second. We'll need to kill more than the minimum 5/day to get the tame one.

Yea...400 gems is a bit over the top isn't it...lol. I'd like the highland cow myself but 240 gems is too much as well if it just drops normal cow drops.

06-08-17, 12:44 PM
love the updates, lots of fun! I hope to get a unicorn!

That said my game keeps glitching. When I am almost done with a fang beast it resets, takes my energy and coins...

Edited to say ... just happened with a flyger too but I did get to repeat and keep the coins this time, though not all the energy. Strange.

caron7
06-08-17, 12:47 PM
make sure you scroll all the way down in your to do book. there are loads of challenges, including a daily challenge. the novice challenge is just fangbeasts this time. it used to include skunkupines.

I just got a second Purple Glimmer Golem :confused: I beat one after collecting from a regular horse, then tapped the Lucky Clydesdale and got another one. I don't recall that ever happening before. At 90 energy, it really stinks. Fortunately I had my weekly stash of energy from horses, alicorns, etc.

Yay Momster Hunt!

S8 you did good. The energy package with 15mins (not 5) was brilliant. I spent the coffee money and was happy - and you guys got my $$ AND I will do it again because:

The spawn rate is excellent - please please dont change it. And this is speaking as a player who always gets shafted with drop rates.
The trades are achievable

I just spent a happy 30mins tootling around my kingdom slaying beasties and doing a couple of trades.

I am happy. If it stays this way, then I will come back and play more AND I will spend consistent $$.

Problem with "Daily Hunt: Novice Challenge" - the description says to hunt down Skunkupines and Fangbeasts but Skunkupines are not registering. I defeated 3 of them (can't get a FB to save my life). and I'm still at 0/5

I just spent my unlimited 15 minutes of energy battling trolls and found that every single one of my horses spawned the Glimmer Troll. The only exclusions were Fairy Horse and Sleigh Bell Horse.

That 15 minutes of energy with the package to purchase was so much fun. I fought at least 4 purple golems, and then went through about 40 pigs and cows, getting at least 10 flygers and 3 fang beasts. I already have 57 flyger tokens. :):D

That was a great deal! I was able to craft five gold tokens with all the shield tokens I got. Been maxed on the other two for awhile. Woohoo. I'd buy that many times over. Feeling much cheerier about CS with this hunt. Needed a pick me up after the lousy Baron's tent prize situation.

You should only get it if you have the Adept Challenge active in your Kingdom Goals. Once you complete it for the day and it's no longer active in your Kingdom Goals, you won't spawn it.

I bought the $4.99 package and loved it! One tip for anyone who's planning on getting it: go for the horses and knock down a few purple golems.

I made the mistake of chopping rocks, hatcheries and cows, but wasted time and didn't always spawn. Horses always spawn and the golem drops a LOT of troll coins. By the time I'd had 8 minutes left, I decided to stick with horses and was able to complete about 4 or 5 gold trades from all of the coins I got from them.

Not 100% sure, if they do drop troll tokens it won't be a guaranteed drop each time. Mine is currently crafting but Katt reported back on page 3 or so that she got 8 energy along with a few others items so it looks to be about the same as the purple Ali just with a different visual and I think I saw that the tokens will continue to drop after event.

DarcyFeather
06-08-17, 04:59 PM
The monster hunt already started in my game. Good news is, the old tokens you may have in storage from previous monster hunts are still eligible for trades in this event. Flygers come from cows and pigs so bring as many of those animals out on your board. I collected around 3-4 flyger tokens from slaying one flyger. Collect 200 tokens and you can craft your own flyger in the trade wagon. I did one silver hunt trade and it gave me apples, oranges, dark seeds, more tokens, and 2 marble walls. Not bad for a start! Skunkupines, dire boars and fang beasts also gave all sorts of tokens.

Just one question to those with more golden tokens and perphas even the cooking camp. I have only 37 golden tokens, if I reach 70, would it be better to spend them on the Research Center, the Cabbage Hut or wait until I have the 99 golden trade tickets?

We'll need about 34 flyger tokens per day to have enough to build the flyer by the time the hunt ends.

Has anyone bought the Highland Cow? It says high chance for rare drops. Also I have 51 Gold Troll Tokens all from Beastbane Display. I will get the Mythic Research Center since I have a Cabbage Hut although I wouldn't mind having a second Cabbage Hut. It will take awhile to get 70 Tokens. I haven't kept track but if I had to guess it has been well over a year to get the 51 I have. Happy Hunting everyone.:)

Just so that y'all know it: When you update the game to the mermaid version, you'll lose the ability to buy sword tokens and staff tokens with gems. The only way to get those tokens now (outside the hunt, of course and the beastbane display) would be to buy shield tokens with gems and do bronze and hunter trades.

My personal opinion is to go for the research centre.
The cooking camp doesn't give you anything new - just another place to cook items we already have.
And with the disappointment of the Baron's tent recently, and the randomness of the appearance of alicorns etc in there, the research center is a better option to get daily alicorns, as you know that once you have enough gold tokens , you can craft them. It doesn't rely on luck, as the tent does.

That was the first thing I bought with the gold troll tokens. There are 7 things it doesn't make that the kitchen makes. The First item and the last 6 items are not in the Cooking Camp. It's great for making feast for the adventures.

I just checked it out and defeating a Skunkupine gave me progress. Can you try force closing to see if that helps update your progress?

I fought 3 skunkupines and 2 dire boars but my count came down to only 2. It seems my game didn't register the skunkupines either. Force closing didn't change the numbers. I wonder if it's a glitch.

I'm checking everything that normally spawns fangbeasts and just getting flyers which is super annoying. Any idea how to get fangbeasts?

Why is everyone so psyched about those? Are the drops amazing? Cause flygers seem like a huge drain away from regular tokens as you only get a couple after the kill.

Also is there a list of everything that drops gold tokens and their timers are? And do those things (fountain, etc) only drop during the event? Or year round?

Love the Monster Hunt! Thank you for bringing it back, S8!

Sadly, I wasn't paying attention, and started crafting my Mythic Research Center while I was nearly maxed on tokens. Now I just have to wait it out (twelve more hours) and pray that the fabulous spawn rate doesn't change!

Once I place my MRC, am seriously thinking about purchasing the 15 minute unlimited energy package! *fingers crossed* to maintain spawn rate!

What are the advantages of doing the bronze and silver trade?

There's a max on tokens. I think 120, so it's a way to gain more tokens and other items while you build up staff token supply for the gold trade. Staff token drops are not as plentiful. Check first page post on all the trades.

29vanilla
06-08-17, 08:48 PM
!!!!! WARNING. !!!!!

Don't park your Trade Wagon near any beast slaying activity. You could easily lose out on many tokens. Happened to me several monster hunts ago. If you're close to maxing out while slaying beasts then you'll be able to do a trade.

PrincessCupOButter
06-08-17, 08:49 PM
What are the advantages of doing the bronze and silver trade?

For me, the only advantage is to spend some of the tokens if I've reached the max on two of the three. For example, if I've got plenty of shields and swords, but not enough staffs for the gold trade, I'll do one of those trades so I can keep hunting without 'wasting' tokens. This happened more in previous hunts, when staffs were hard to come by. Since I purchased the beastbane display, I have plenty of staffs.....now I seem to be mostly waiting on shields.

riverly
06-08-17, 08:57 PM
It seems to me that those trades use up the shield tokens needed for the gold trade. I think I'll go back and take a closer look.

Thanks for bringing back the hunt!
Thanks for the flygers....no matter what they drop, many of us wanted one for a pet, so great big thank you!!
Thanks for making the spawn rate reasonable! (And for the extra purple golems....please don't let those be a bug!)
Thanks for bringing back the energy crates on at least one of the daily challenges, and for returning the chance of gems from the golden trade. (I've gotten 3 gems so far!)
Thanks for the new unicorn in the MRC!
Thanks for a bundle that is reasonably priced and very useful! (I am seriously considering purchasing one, because I'll happily spend $$ to support the game when I don't feel 'pressured' to do so.)

Most of all....Thanks for 'listening' and using so many of the suggestions that were made in the suggestion thread!

Now...if only that Highland cow could go on sale....or maybe end up in the MRC or Barons tent. I love the artwork, but not the price. I might feel different if it had drops like a daily ali.... lol

Is last seasons alicorn still available to craft for those that did not craft the max. amount last time?
Yes it is.. but you can only craft maximum of ONE!



These fangbeast are hiding really well...:rolleyes: options??
I would suggest to consentrate on collecting from the cows. they spawn Flygers which you need for the Flyger Token collection and also spawn Fangbeasts. That way your're doing 2 goals at the same time with the same energy.
However here's a help, you can find summary in The Hub pages:
FANGBEAST: cows, chickens, pigs, hot pepper, carrots, trees, stable, hatchery, red acer
oak, willow, farm houses.




I'm checking everything that normally spawns fangbeasts and just getting flyers which is super annoying. Any idea how to get fangbeasts?

Also is there a list of everything that drops gold tokens and their timers are? And do those things (fountain, etc) only drop during the event? Or year round?
Cows are great.. but you need about 20 of them out. I wouldn't consider it a waste as the Flyger Tokens are needed as well. Players love the design of the Flyger as they have been introduced before in other events. There was a request if we could keep one as a pet in our kingdom.. and kindly.. S8 has made this possible. (Thank you!)
Princess Lorelei's Fountain drops also Gold Tokens but not every time and ONLY during Monster Events, with a 5hr timer.
Beastbane Statue is the only source that gives the possibility of Gold Token drops when Monster Hunts are finished, once a day.



I think someone else also has already mentioned but I got my second purple golem when I accidentally collected from horse... this never happened previously. Is this a glitch or on purpose?
It's on purpose as crafting the Gold Tokens with the supplies collected out of season.. there is a shortage of Shield Tokens as many are needed and max number of 120 in storage finish quickly.

Happy Hunting everyone and yes! this is a great update! Energy may be a problem for those without secondary supplies.. but do craft as much as you can.. don't forget collecting from kingdoms, Lucky Workshop, Exchange Trades, Green House, Adventures. All give possibilities of collecting extra energy.

After 7 seasons of hunting monsters, I have FINALLY gotten enough golden troll tokens to buy the Mythic Research Center! Yay! So excited!

S8 after so many boring events, you finally brought me back. Congrats.


Pika or SW. Is Loreleis Fountain a part of this hunt?

I cant see the option to craft the gems/fountain.

The fountain was a reward from a quest involving the Princess. Sorry, I did it so long ago I can't remember the details.

Do you remember if you got them from season 1 or 2? Did they work last time?

I got them the first time
No they never worked but I somehow forgot to report it :)

My first collection from Flyger dropped one flyger token, nothing else. It's possible regular drops will start after event ends as some have before.

I still have 20 to go :/ I'm on android and didn't even have dire boars the first few hunts, so I was happy to get three gold tokens during the whole event :D

I'm pretty sure there's been a change in this season's silver trade.
In previous seasons you had the chance of doubling your tokens for each silver trade.
That's! Right you could gamble for a chance to win more!!!! Forgot about that!

I am enjoying this event. My only goals are to finally clear my Loralie goal and hopefully get a Flyger.

Currently, with the spawn rates, it looks like everyone is in charge of their own destiny here.

I'm level 39 with no extra energy sources so I am very happy to have a goal that is attainable while other players also can work toward something they want. If I get the fountain early enough, then I'll work toward making gold tokens for the next monster hunt; always looking ahead :).

Thanks for providing a great event S8.

I have a trade wagon for ages but for what I am not sure as I just found out I can't participate with the monster hunt until I am level 22(I am now level 20) so why the goal to get a trade wagon while I can't use it for anything?

Since I'm very vocal when I'm unhappy with an event, I want to be equally vocal when I am pleased.

Thank you S8!
Thanks for bringing back the hunt!
Thanks for the flygers....no matter what they drop, many of us wanted one for a pet, so great big thank you!!
Thanks for making the spawn rate reasonable! (And for the extra purple golems....please don't let those be a bug!)
Thanks for bringing back the energy crates on at least one of the daily challenges, and for returning the chance of gems from the golden trade. (I've gotten 3 gems so far!)
Thanks for the new unicorn in the MRC!
Thanks for a bundle that is reasonably priced and very useful! (I am seriously considering purchasing one, because I'll happily spend $$ to support the game when I don't feel 'pressured' to do so.)

Most of all....Thanks for 'listening' and using so many of the suggestions that were made in the suggestion thread!

Now...if only that Highland cow could go on sale....or maybe end up in the MRC or Barons tent. I love the artwork, but not the price. I might feel different if it had drops like a daily ali.... lol

SW, thanks for checking into the unicorn drops for us! I'd love a sneak peek at the permanent drops (post hunt) and also to know if gold tokens are one of the possible drops.

I Have to second this. I agree with from deepest my heart. THANK YOU s8. You ROCK!!!

Finally happy to check my game frequently after 3 update that I cant finish before this. I Even can't wait 2 hours for my energy replenish because I already drain my energy suplies (boxes, trade, and elixir). Lol

Just adding my thoughts.
1) Thanks S8 for this monster hunt. Thanks for bring back the energy crate reward.
2) I am having fun so I purchased the energy pack and had a blast for 15 minutes. I may just do it again.
3) I also decided to purchase some gems and get the beastbane ( this also prevented me from losing earned gems while madly running around my queendom)
4) Time will tell if I wish the event was longer than a week. Right now I think it will be too short because the hunts are just too far apart.
5) Consider keeping the trades in the trade wagon open outside of the monster hunt. This could lead more to purchase the beastbane.
6) Consider having a monster or two drop tokens outside of the hunts. That way we can earn tokens and use the MRC outside of hunts. I still have many creatures to create.

jaymieb2
06-09-17, 11:06 AM
Woo hoo! I did it! I bought my very first value pack! SO fun! And I am now up to 8 gold tokens (just got the MRC last night.

If the spawn and drop rate remain the same, I am going to buy the pack again tomorrow! :-)

karak71
06-09-17, 11:27 AM
Just as a side note, I keep my beastbane display thing out all of the time and collect from it daily. Sometimes nothing, sometimes a silver token of some sort, but I also get gold tokens. I actually started this monster hunt with 55.

msmorg
06-09-17, 11:45 AM
!!!!! WARNING. !!!!!

Don't park your Trade Wagon near any beast slaying activity. You could easily lose out on many tokens. Happened to me several monster hunts ago. If you're close to maxing out while slaying beasts then you'll be able to do a trade.

Could you explain this a little more?

If you get a monster the gray cloud could cover the wagon and prevent your using it to use the tokens to make a gold coin

Is it only me? Or what am I doing wrong?
I don't like this hunt at all! It's my second and from what I remember, I liked my first...
I have a lot of problems getting fangbeasts (missing the skunkupines for counting to get 5 like last hunt).
Fligers aren't the problem at all, but they take all my energy during the day...
After reading all crazy happy people I bought the packet, MY LAST ONE!
What a waste of money!
5 fligertraps that I don't need, because I get a flyger after every 1 or 2 cows....
Flygertokens also not a problem to get....
15 minutes unlimited energy:
I clicked 1x on my deadtree and fighted the monster. And after that on my 5 horses, so I had to fight 5 monsters. In between 4 trolltokens crafted. And that was it! Time was over! Used the few energy from the 40 that was over to do some things with my kingdombuildings. No time to harvest, no time to visit all my animals and slay some fangbeasts and flygers....
Only able to get 4 trolltokens for ?5,49.... And no coffeebreak, I clicked as fast as I could, but the game was sooooo slow and the timer was sooooo fast!

Is this what everyone calls fun? Or what are the usual results and what did I wrong?

The gems are to craft Lorelei's Fountain. Go to first page of this thread and click on link to Fountain. The locket is for something we haven't reached yet. The Fountain has a random drop of a gold token only during the monster hunt. So far I've gotten 3 from 4 collections which is better than average. Last hunt I think I got at least 10. Beastbane is also worth it if you have or can buy the gems. Mine dropped at least 20 gold tokens and I maxed on sword and staff tokens in the time since the last hunt.

06-09-17, 12:29 PM
So the Unicorn's only drop is Spellbound Dew?? Is there any consequence to letting that goal expire then? I don't want to use my gold tokens to craft one, but want to be sure that I have to complete it to carry on. Thanks.

PrincessCupOButter
06-09-17, 12:40 PM
I splurged and bought a value pack. My way of saying "Thank-you, S8!"
That was the fastest 15 minutes I've ever spent. Lol!
I chose to spawn flygers until I ran out of cows, then I fought a few purple golems. I'm not sure how many gold tokens I crafted, but I was happy with my results. I have crafted my flyger and a unicorn, so now I'm concentrating on the daily challenges, and maybe crafting another flyger.

I do find that the dire boars and fangbeasts are rather scarce. But IMO the fangbeast challenge doesn't reward all that much anyway, and the ability to fight extra purple golems gives me most of the tokens I need for trades, so I'm happy with the flyger tokens and energy crates.

Thanks again S8!

I don't think there is any wrong way to monster hunt, that's the beauty of it for me; everyone can choose what exactly they want to try to get and work towards that. I bought a value pack yesterday and today, here's what I do:

When my horses are ready I buy the value pack and tap a horse, after defeating the golem I quickly tap on the trade wagon. If I don't have enough to do the gold trade, I do the bronze trade then after collecting I quickly go and defeat another glimmer golem. Doing this today I was able to defeat 8 glimmer golems and 1 blue dire boar. This resulted in me getting 7 gold coins.

If I were going to use the value pack for general tending of my queendom I would tap all my buildings then pull down my notification bar so I didn't have to wait for my character to walk to all the buildings and all the drops would be gathered in one fell swoop.

I hope this was useful, but more than that I hope you keep going and discover your favorite way of monster hunting so you can get the full joy of it!

Thank you to everyone who replied to me! I'm thinking Research Center if possible. I'm wondering about the glimmer golem and the blue boar. It appears everyone says its no longer a 1-a-day pop up but after I defeated my first golem and blue dire boar, I got no other spawns. Did I miss something?

I also would go with the Research Center. Very happy with it.

I have both, haven't noticed any big difference in energy part, both drop energy every day 4 or 8, 10---etc, in super rare cases even 100.

Purple one ( glimmer ali) drops: energy, glimmerdust, glimmer shard
Armored Ali: Energy, armour, jewel, mithril,

Well my plan didn't work because the package deal disappeared hours before it was set to.

It's not the first time this has happened for me but it is the first time I'd actually planned to buy it. Was planning to do it on my lunch break today.

Not sure if the deals sometimes get pulled before they expire or if my trading post timers mess with things (hours sometimes change abruptly or deals blinker out when Nadia comes and goes).

Any point in filling a help desk ticket on this?

Which is best to craft - the glimmer alicorn or the armored alicorn? What does each drop? Thanks.

Armored Alicorn
Crafted: Mythic Research Centre
Drops: Energy, Jewels, Iron Ore, Silver Ore, Light Armor, Mithril
Requirements: 15 gold tokens, 7 staff tokens, 10 mithril | max craft of 4

Glimmer Alicorn
Crafted: Mythic Research Centre
Drops: energy, glimmerdust, glimmer shard, glimmer fragments
Requirements: 25 gold tokens, 5 staff tokens, 15 rope (limited to 1)

However - since the most valuable thing about alicorns is energy drop - and that seems to be equal for both - I would go for the one that is less tokens to craft. (If you have mithril of course)

Thx for your tip about the notification bar! But now I think my game really was slower then it used to be too. I did the same thing after every monster I checked for possible tradings and did 3 glimmer golems less then you did. And now everything in the game (like the walkings), still seems to get so much slower then usually...

Wouldn't you know that S8 would have a long-awaited monster hunt while I am cruising in Alaska for two weeks! Today, for the first time in 7 days, I have Internet access. Bought the bundle and used the endless energy. I must have the Flyger and already have 109 tokens in just 4 hours. By the end of the day, I will use gems to get the rest of the tokens I need to get the flyger. Probably will not have Internet access for the rest of the vacation, so I must do what I must do.
Kudos to S8. Very enjoyable event and thanks for the endless energy bundle.

Just so that y'all know it: When you update the game to the mermaid version, you'll lose the ability to buy sword tokens and staff tokens with gems. The only way to get those tokens now (outside the hunt, of course and the beastbane display) would be to buy shield tokens with gems and do bronze and hunter trades.
Just to let you know there was no bug if you upgrade the app. This information about tokens and trades is incorrect. Thanks, SW

Looks like you're right, I'm sorry. In the mermaid version, the green tick marks have disappeared indicating you have enough of the item. This confused me. Apparently, when you don't have enough of an item, the button to buy with gems is still visible.

Adding my voice to those very happy. I am really enjoying that i can chose what I want to do to get monsters. I find that very freeing.

Bundle did disappear before time was up, but I was surprised by how many energy crates I had so may not have bought it anyway. I am slowly working my way through those, want to extend my fun over the whole week!

Biggest decision is how much energy to use to clear trees etc from the new expansions - but as I said, I like having choices :)

A couple of other bonuses
Trade wagon has been giving me wisps lanterns - very useful to get the last expansion.

Gold Troll Tokens have a possibility of dropping from the Beastbane (all year round) or the Lorelei Fountains (only during Monster Hunts). The others you may need you can craft in the Trade Wagon (only during Monster Hunts)

I've noticed that the 'green tick/check' symbols no longer appear in any of the crafting buildings. They're those green symbols that appear when you have enough of the specific material needed. Now only the 'buy with gems' choice appears.

They were so handy at a first glimpse so see if materials were missing when crafting.

Gold Troll Tokens have a possibility of dropping from the Beastbane (all year round) or the Lorelei Fountains (only during Monster Hunts). The others you may need you can craft in the Trade Wagon (only during Monster Hunts)


What is Beastbane? Pretty sure I don't have that, and I can't find it in the market. Is it a plant? Or a building?

I've noticed that the 'green tick/check' symbols no longer appear in any of the crafting buildings. They're those green symbols that appear when you have enough of the specific material needed. Now only the 'buy with gems' choice appears.
Has anyone else noticed this?
They were so handy at a first glimpse so see if materials were missing when crafting.

Yes. This caused a bit of confusion (in this thread) earlier on as they weren't in the trade wagon. And in the adventures, the ticks don't appear for crafted items but do appear for coins, which is more confusing.

They might (???) have done this to make the gem button (for things we don't have enough of) more noticeable but , if so, it just looks somewhat odd.

Wouldn't you know that S8 would have a long-awaited monster hunt while I am cruising in Alaska for two weeks! Today, for the first time in 7 days, I have Internet access. Bought the bundle and used the endless energy. I must have the Flyger and already have 109 tokens in just 4 hours. By the end of the day, I will use gems to get the rest of the tokens I need to get the flyger. Probably will not have Internet access for the rest of the vacation, so I must do what I must do.
Kudos to S8. Very enjoyable event and thanks for the endless energy bundle.

something similar happened to me while cruising in Alaska. sit out on a balcony whenever you arrive in port and perhaps "borrow" internet access from an unsecured wifi ... restaurant, etc. likely has this. best wishes and enjoy Alaska! it is incredibly beautiful!

I have tried everything and the energy package won't come back! Did anyone buy two in the same day?

also having an issue here. tried to buy one energy pack each day, but it won't let me buy a second on my ipad. i get a message to contact Apple support. however, i could buy the second pack on my android phone. since everything moves slower in the phone, i swiped the game closed and opened in ipad, where the timer was now running for unlimited energy! it was a good work around. good luck to you!!

What do I do if I am not given my gold tokens? I did the trade for a gold token twice. Yet I am still at the original 22 gold tokens that I started this monster hunt with and ended last time with. It took my other tokens and I showed pictures of little items on the screen like I was given them but I don't know if those actually got put into my inventory or not, I don't keep a close enough eye on everything in my inventory. But I have been sitting at 22 gold tokens for a very long time now. So I know that number!! It seems like no matter how many gold token trades I do, it won't give me gold tokens, someone help, please. Lol

Do you remember if you got them from season 1 or 2? Did they work last time?

Is it possible there are two versions of the statues.
I have all three, and they have never dropped anything, and there is no timer on them now.

Since I'm very vocal when I'm unhappy with an event, I want to be equally vocal when I am pleased.

Thank you S8!
Thanks for bringing back the hunt!
Thanks for the flygers....no matter what they drop, many of us wanted one for a pet, so great big thank you!!
Thanks for making the spawn rate reasonable! (And for the extra purple golems....please don't let those be a bug!)
Thanks for bringing back the energy crates on at least one of the daily challenges, and for returning the chance of gems from the golden trade. (I've gotten 3 gems so far!)
Thanks for the new unicorn in the MRC!
Thanks for a bundle that is reasonably priced and very useful! (I am seriously considering purchasing one, because I'll happily spend $$ to support the game when I don't feel 'pressured' to do so.)

Most of all....Thanks for 'listening' and using so many of the suggestions that were made in the suggestion thread!

Now...if only that Highland cow could go on sale....or maybe end up in the MRC or Barons tent. I love the artwork, but not the price. I might feel different if it had drops like a daily ali.... lol

SW, thanks for checking into the unicorn drops for us! I'd love a sneak peek at the permanent drops (post hunt) and also to know if gold tokens are one of the possible drops.

Somethin I very rarely do, but her goes: QFT.

And an addition: thanks for the heads-up so I could get the statues out of storage in time, and not wasting a whole day waiting before I can collect.

Thanks for such a fun event, made the deccision on "Autumn stag and doe" vs "Beastbane Display" very easy, so now I'm saving for the Autumn stag and doe. Only downside of this event is, it's only 7 days.

There are 3 types of Hunt-related statue's
* Skunkupine-, Fangbeast- and Direboar-statue. These have a 22-hour timer and drop tokens during monster-hunts. These were (if I recall correctly) obtainable during the first 3 Monster-Hunts.
* the Season 5 Training-dummy, which during the hunt has a chance to spawn Fangbeasts. Also a 22-hour timer.
* 4 statues called Season 1, 2, and 3 Slayer Statues and Season 4 Baron Statue. These don't have timers and don't have drops.

Hope this clears something up.

Yes its been repeated here before but I also wanted to add my thanks S8!!! I've been here before the first monster hunt (tho tbh I didn't really participate as I was in school and I didn't want another kitchen) but I'm finally all in this event!! After seven seasons lol. Also this and the expansion packs makes me more willing to spend money just saying. Not because I need it tho the perks are nice but also to support the company.

Does anyone know if the Unicorn will still drop tokens after the event is over?

I only collected once, but mine only dropped 4 energy + spellbound dew, no token, so I guess the token is not a guaranteed drop.

If I were going to use the value pack for general tending of my queendom I would tap all my buildings then pull down my notification bar so I didn't have to wait for my character to walk to all the buildings and all the drops would be gathered in one fell swoop.
[/QUOTE]

This sounds interesting... Would someone please explain to me where the Notification Bar is...it's it part of Castle Story? Or part of one's phone? If the phone, is it just iOS phones, or on Android too? Thanks!

You don't even have to use the notification bar. On IOS, I just press the home button and immediately restart the app. You can also press the 'social' button within the game, although that doesn't work all the time.

Out of all of them only the training dummy has a timer.
None of the * statues have a timer, or drop anything.
That's why I asked, perhaps there is a difference between those earned during a quest and those made in the trade wagon later.
A bit confusing but I can't think of any other reason.

Just returned to my game, put the three * statues into storage, and brought them back out.
NOW when I tap on them they have a timer - hip hip hooray!!

On iPhone or iPad, you can swipe from the far low of your screen up to half way, and get a iOS menu-thing. This triggers Castle Story to finish all planned tasks at once.
On all devices, when you plan your actions (tap everything you want to collect), then go to menu, then go to social, everything is collected at once too. (Unless you just loaded the social screen a moment before, then you need to go from "community" to "neighbors" to have immediately collection).

And I know why I don't like this hunt now! But why I liked my first... It's the same with the events at the moment that I skip because I don't like most of it, but the rainbow thing event was one I liked!
My game really is faster today, so that 15 minutes was at the worst time and not only a feeling because of the timer! But that was only 1 thing....
I don't have many energy-givers, so I hate it to use my energy for an event on anything that doesn't give me anything for my main game.
And I love to work on different things, not a week only on 1 thing!
I had (needed) crops ready that had a chance for skunks, but I don't need skunkupines this hunt! And the others crops are maxed!
I can use a lot of milk! And the cows gave me nearly every cow a Flyger, so after the 2 big monsters for day 1 I only fighted Flygers. And more Flygers.... And after a day I wanted to do something else, but the only interesting thing now is Flygers and if I'm out of the Shieldtookens I tap on a horse and next 2 or more hours of energy I can't do anything else then slaying against that 90 points thing that always shows up every horse!
Fun for me is using energy partly for harvesting, for water, for animals, for petals, to fight a monster if it shows itself, just a little bit of everything... But now I click 1 or 2 times and I have to fight another monster all day! So maybe I have to stop after a limit every day and do something else to enjoy the game too...

Jackiesq if you do not wish to participate in the monster hunt you can trigger a beast (from anywhere) and leave it there, not defeat it until the event is over. That way you can go about your business without triggering all the flygers.

I'm so glad you found the solution! And also bummed that I didn't think of it sooner....it's been too long between hunts.
This was a common problem during some of the earlier hunts and after your post about storing them, I remembered the forums advising people to place them in storage and take them back out in order to get the timers. Please, SW could you add this tip to page one?

The statues were also offered for gold tokens in the trade wagon for a brief time. (I remember some players buying them accidentally!)
I wonder if those purchased ones work the same as those that were won?

I know that, but I wanted 1 flyger, and you never know if they do anything about the chances to get one. 😉But I was so surprised why everyone talked about fun! I understand everyone (me too) is happy that it's easy to get the things during a timed event! But I can't say this is fun... For me this is the worst work you can give me on a workingday: 1000x doing the same simple thing! (Just like the 1000 stones and trees we have to shop most events...) First hunt I was able/had to do more different things to get the dayly quests done.

Not sure I've seen this mentioned so posting this for others as unobservant as me!

I didn't realise the cap on flyger tokens was 200 (ie the same as the number needed to craft one) and was holding off crafting one until overnight as it takes 4 hrs

So just realised I have been fighting a few flygers and not getting tokens. Hope this may help others avoid doing the same thing. My flyger is now being crafted :)

I have been inundated with goals related to the trade wagon, yet there is no trade wagon available for purchase or otherwise anywhere on my game board. I'd like to know if I am just spinning my wheels and wasting energy points accomplishing different tasks related to the trade wagon, if there is no trade wagon available to me.

My goals are to craft 1 Flyger and 1 unicorn then collect gold. I purposely avoid the cows and horses when I don't want to see monsters.
I assume there is a cap of 99 gold tokens.
I would craft another unicorn, but I don't want to deplete all my spellbound dew right now.
I have actually been able to do elven trades during the hunt.
So I guess I choose to choose my battles.

First, sorry to hear you aren't enjoying this. I guess this shows we are all individuals :)

I guess I see hunts differently - as something that can add value to normal game play given we can get to the stage to craft daily alicorns in the research centre that give energy.


And I love to work on different things, not a week only on 1 thing!
I find this hunt gives me the opportunity to do different things as there are lots of ways to spawn beasts - and lots that don't when I want to do other things.


I had (needed) crops ready that had a chance for skunks, but I don't need skunkupines this hunt! And the others crops are maxed!
Skunkupines may not be required for the daily challenges but they still drop tokens, so could still be useful to fight. So no need to hold off planting/collecting those crops necessarily.


I can use a lot of milk! And the cows gave me nearly every cow a Flyger, so after the 2 big monsters for day 1 I only fighted Flygers. And more Flygers.... And after a day I wanted to do something else, but the only interesting thing now is Flygers and if I'm out of the Shieldtookens I tap on a horse and next 2 or more hours of energy I can't do anything else then slaying against that 90 points thing that always shows up every horse!

I think what others have suggested, have a monster parked when you collect from horses etc, would work well. You can then defeat it when you are ready to try and spawn more.
