    Post Castle Story: 02/13/2014 Update Greselda's Beautiful Dark Garden

    Hi All,

    Happy Thursday! As planned, we're continuing the main story. We have a new member in the Kingdom and the story is going to start exploring more of Lady Greselda. I won't spoil it for you guys though ;D

    Here's today's update:

    1) Greselda's Beautiful Dark Garden Questline
    - To start this quest you must complete Potion Shop Gossip and be Level 27+
    - Looks like The Baron is back in your Kingdom, just what is he up to?

    2) New Crafting Building: Greenhouse
    - Available to players Level 20+
    - We are adding 3 new staple crafts to it next week, for now, it only has crafts relating to this week's content release
    - Faeriebulb Seeds can now grow into something

    3) New Decoration: Greselda's Fountain

    Concentrate on the piles of seeds!!! You need those for creating Dark Seeds. You need the Dark Seeds for crafting the glimmer plants required for upgrading the maze.

    Piles of Seeds are important!!!! Not faerie bulb seeds.

    Potion Shop Gossip

    5. If You Want to Be Happy...

    Build a Greenhouse
    Gather 20 fertilizer
    Gather 20 Piles of Seeds
    Grow 5 Dark Plants (in Greenhouse)
    Rewards: 1700, 6 XP
    * Greenhouse is a new crafting building available in the Market
    * You must gather new seeds and fertiliser. Ones previously in storage don't count
    * To grow Dark Plants you must first Create Dark Seeds (in Greenhouse, 3 Piles of Seeds, 5 Glimmer Shards, 5 Glimmer Fragments) and then Grow Dark Seeds (in Greenhouse, 3 Dark Seeds, 5 Water, 4 Fertilizer)
    * You get 2-4 dark seeds per crafting

    6. Coping Mechanism

    Upgrade the Royal Maze Garden
    * To upgrade the Maze you need 10 Glimmer Trap Plants, 1 Glimmer Rafflesia Plant, 5 Glimmer Pitcher Plants, 5 Mythic Essences
    * The plants needed to upgrade comes from Growing Dark Plants in the Greenhouse, which produces one random Dark Plant.

    7. Greselda's Beautiful Dark Garden
    Tour the Garden x2
    Rewards: 1700 coins, 6 XP

    8. What Is This Feeling?
    Buy Greselda's Fountain
    Reward: 20 gems
    NOTE: This is a TIMED goal. You DO NOT have to complete the goal. This is OPTIONAL. It will expire in 24 hours if you do not buy the fountain.
    I repeat: You DO NOT have to do this. You do not have to spend gems.


    Additional Information
    * If you try to build another conservatory and you get a message that you're at your limit, you will need to sell another royal building. Limit depends on your level (at the higher levels its 27 royal buildings)
    * There are two types of seeds: pile of seeds and faeriebulb seeds
    * Pile of seeds are used to craft dark seeds. They are a random drop from conservatories, Ivy's hut, faerie respite, magic garden
    * Faeriebulbs are grown to give random crops/energy. If you have fully upgraded your faerie respite you'll only get them from there. Prior to that they did drop from glimmerbulbs and magic garden
    * Crafting and growing dark seeds gives plants needed to upgrade maze (note these can't be placed in your kingdom)

    Second time you visit Greselda's Castle, it unlocks "Grow Dark Seeds".

    You need the pile of seeds, glimmer shards, & glimmer fragments to craft the "Create Dark Seeds" in the Greenhouse.
    When the "Grow Dark Seeds" is unlocked after visiting Greselda's Castle twice, you need those dark seeds, water & fertilizer to craft the glimmer plants required to upgrade the Maze Garden to level 2.

    2nd post on the first page of this thread is very helpful for checking your progress. You can refer to it repeatedly to check that progress.






    To upgrade the maze to level 2:




    The faerie bulb seeds are used to craft useless items you can get easier by other means. So no need to worry about harvesting them at all!
    Maze Level 2 (max level)

    Drops - glimmer dust, glimmer shards, dark seed and dark plants, mushrooms, mysterious venom, living wood

    Sounds exciting! I have a long way to go before I will be able to do the new quest line, but I'm really happy with the intricacy level of the game. It will keep me occupied for a very long time.

    If I don't have Greselda, does that mean I cannot do this week's quest at the moment?

    I think so. But you can build the greenhouse if you are level 20+.

    What happened to increasing maximum level#? I thought it was supposed to happen pretty soon.
