    Castle Story: Lady Pfefferknot's Visit! (EXPIRED EVENT) 6/4/15 - 6/29/15

    Whether good or bad, I know she'll always love me. If nothing else, I hope she at least has a good stay. Nothing can go wrong! Everyone's ready for the grand event, right?

    [==Update requires Level 15+ to participate, and is live 06/04 @ 12pm - 06/29 @ 11:30pm==]

    THE TIME IS INCORRECT FOR THE END OF THE EVENT.... SHOULD BE 11:30AM, NOT 11:30PM (thank you mreames!) SW

    but more importantly.... a big congratulations from me to you on doing such an excellent job with this event! I know we didn't all finish the Estate, but I've enjoyed reading how much effort was put in to trying to get there. I will leave some feedback for the team about random drops in events. I'm sure we can find a happy medium with these long events.

    So take a breath, take a couple of days out to find your equilibrium and then buckle on your belts in case we get an update this week (will check on this!).... the in-game pop up mentioned above sounds intriguing!

    I've already updated the Building Guide with the Vineyard Estate information. I'll add the new puppy to the Inventory Guide and do of the cross referencing of drops etc when I have a bit of time in the next day or 2.

    Well done everyone!

    Timed / Optional Event - Lady Pfefferknot's Visit - Let's go Grape Collecting!



    Q: Corks and barrels are no longer dropping - what do I do?

    Corks and barrels only dropped for the duration of the event. You can put your unfinished building into storage if you don't want to or can't upgrade it with gems. An unfinished Vineyard will continue to drop coins only.

    These answers are from PikaSquirrel. The bold questions are a summary of what I asked.

    1. I gather the android players don't get the daily new market grape trade??
    Yes, this daily trade feature is only available on iOS.

    2. Can you please advise on whether android players will be able to get the kitten and puppy as a prize for the event
    These pets are from an event available to iOS and Android players so everyone will be able to see them. Pets from the Baron's Game Tent are not visible to Android because they do not have this feature.

    3. is there a limit to the amount of Town buildings you can have and if so what is the magic number?
    The maximum amount of Royal Buildings in the game is 43.
    (SW postscript: 40 is the Town Building Limit)

    4. Can the event be finished without gems and will cork and barrel rate increase?
    Event is set up so players will be able to upgrade their Vineyard Estate to max level without the use of Gems to upgrade it. As they upgrade the building more, more of both Cork and Empty Oak Barrel will drop. So after they reach a higher level, it'll become easier.

    5. Reports of a cork or barrel not dropping at all when collecting from the Vineyard Estate.
    The Vineyard will always drop at least one Cork or Empty Oak Barrel. I took a quick look and don't see any issues.


    From SW:
    * if you do not receive a cork or barrel, please post which level of the Vineyard Estate you are on so I can pass this on.
    * the bandits adventure doesn't drop cork or barrels (well at least not for me either!) but it does drop 13 grapes.
    * Ivy's goal is OPTIONAL (the 3 day mini goal). If you don't do it or don't finish it, you only miss out on the reward. The rest of the goal continues regardless. You will see 2 goals in your book at this stage.
    * post 2 updates with some of the missing info.

    Thanks!

    T minus 45 minutes and counting... I'll bet the Baron is as nervous as we are excited. For a guy that overbearing to be so anxious to please she must be a piece of work! I loved the picture Aggwynn posted.
    Another day in Team Lava Land, another collection of coins, another trip to that change machine at the grocery store...

    Just impatiently waiting. lol I didn't do the last goals so I sure hope I didn't make a poor decision on that. We will see. Any idea what's in store? I just hate it when we have to devote 24/7 to complete. I've not been able to finish in some cases. And I don't even work full time. Can't wait tho!

    I know the feeling! You'll probably be fine. The things you got as rewards for having done the optional prep goal were building materials, so we must be building something. A summer home for mommy dearest, perhaps?

    I sure hope we'll be fine. Gotta clear some space if it it's really going to be a summer retreat for Baron's mom. 15ish minutes left :]
