    Castle Story: 08/20/15 Update - Equestrian Race Event!

    Ruffians stand no match against the knights and their mighty horses! Anyone can see how mighty they are, after all that training! Can there be another way to display it? Enter the mighty steeds!

    [==Update requires Level 17+ to participate, and is live 08/20 @ 12pm - 09/07 @ 11:30am==]

    Please note:

    1. If you still have the goal On Track for Success which asks you to upgrade to level 5 (which was timed at 5 days), note that this goal is now defunct. Just let it expire. It does not mean you can upgrade the Horse Track, only that you began this goal with less than 5 days of the end of the event.

    2. You will not get any drops of banners or ingots from any source (even if you have the goal On Track for Success in your book).

    3. The only way to upgrade the Horse Track now is with gems (even if you have the goal On Track for Success in your book).

    4. The bug fix was to address the problem of the track not dropping any items. It is suppose to drop the items as listed on page 1 of this thread which it now does. The bug fix was not to make banners or ingots drop.

    If you have any further questions in relation to this event, please send me a PM and I'll help you.

    Hope this helps clarify the end of this event. Thanks all!

    Timed / Optional Event - Equestrian Race Event!
    Prepared by SpiritWind

    If you're contemplating using gems to finish the horse track, it is MUCH CHEAPER to speed up the track. It starts at 6 gems and goes down 1 gem every half hour. This is much cheaper than buying an individual banner or ingot at 20 and 25 gems each respectively.

    Is it worth upgrading or having? My personal opinion is anything that multi drops items is worth it. Is it worth having if you need to spend more than say 30-50 gems? Probably not. You can get the drops from other sources, so not a catastrophe if you don't finish. Disappointing, yes, disadvantaged, no. (But that's just me, others might have a different opinion)

    If you can upgrade your track to level 5 then Step 8 slipped by unnoticed. It did with me. I did check with S8 and everyone who said they didn't do actually did.

    If you have the last 90 banners and ingots but not carrots or hide, you can still upgrade the track once you have these items. The upgrade button will stay available.

    Banners and ingots stop dropping once the event concludes as will horseshoes. You can only purchase them with gems once the timer stops. You can do this at anytime in the future.

    The finished Horse Track does drop XP. Will have to check if coins drop once event concludes.

    I hope that this summary helps. I'll put it in post 2 as well. Good luck to all!
