    We appreciate your feedback and after careful discussion, we have made the following changes.



    • The Energy loot will be random with a chance to get up to 40 Energy.
    • The Glimmer Alicorn craft will now require 25 Troll Tokens instead of 50.
    • The limit of 1 will remain going forward. Players who already have multiples will be able to keep them.


    For the inconvenience, we have credited back 25 Troll Tokens to anyone who has crafted this Alicorn for 50 Troll Tokens. Thank you everyone so much for all of the feedback you have shared with us and for your patience. If you have any questions, please let us know.

    I will update the various guides and information in this post as soon as I can.... SW

    Castle Story: The Trade Wagon - crafts and out of season information

    this information is now incorrect and will be updated. SW


    I thought it might be easier for us to use a new thread for out of season information about the items available in the Trade Wagon.
    * Yes there will be more Monster Hunts!*


    Links:
    Season 5 Monster Hunt (expired) Closed thread
    Legendary Trap
    Cooking Camp or Mythic Research Centre



    Gold troll tokens will only drop from the Beastbane Display out of season. If you do not have this item, then you need to wait for the next season to continue accumulating gold tokens.


    Trade Wagon crafts

    * These crafts are visible in and out of season and available in the Trade Wagon until you complete them.

    Crafting time
    Cost Links
    Cooking Camp 16 hours 99 gold tokens Building Guide Crafting link
    Princess Lorelei's Fountain ? 2 Blue Sapphires which are 10 gold tokens each to purchase.
    The Fountain drops gold tokens only during monster hunts.
    You get 3 gold tokens as a reward for this craft.
    Building Guide Resources link (under P)
    Cabbage Hut 16 hours 70 gold tokens Building Guide link (for Baron's Tent)
    Ornate Locket 10 minutes 5 gold tokens
    Once you craft the Locket the story ends (for now!)
    Mythic Research Center 16 hours 70 gold tokens Crafting Buildings Guide link


    The Beastbane Display

    * The Beastbane Display will continue its normal drops outside of Monster Hunt seasons.

    * Because drops are continuous, summoning animals through the Mythic Research Center will require Sword or Staff Tokens, and those will be available to you at all times, (ie, you can continue to craft glimmer alicorns and glimmer dragons when you get the resources anytime).

    Beastbane Display
    Found: market, 400 gems
    Drops: sword tokens, staff tokens, gold troll token (in and out of seasons)
    Collection time: 22 hours
    Season 5 Monster Hunt Thread | Beastbane Display Thread




    The Cabbage Hut (iOS only)

    * You can either purchase 1 cabbage hut in the market for 450 gems and/or you can get another one through the trade wagon for 70 tokens. The trade wagon provides an alternate way to get the cabbage hut.

    * If you purchase a cabbage hut with tokens, it unlocks the goal in the market and you can purchase the cabbage hut or 100 coins. It comes fully built.

    * You can collect from the Hut every 22 hours. 1 cabbage drops.





    Legendary Trap

    Legendary Trap
    Found: market, 25 gems
    Uses: spawns a random beast (Blue Dire Boar or Purple Glimmer Golem)
    Thread
    Drops during a Monster Hunt: Gold troll token, Shield tokens, Sword tokens and Staff tokens
    Drops between events: Gold tokens will drop, but they are rare.

    Is the legendary trap for one time use or does it spawn over and over again?

    one time use... it's similar to the other traps you can purchase. It will spawn a dire boar or golem, so out of season it's a big energy waster as silver tokens won't drop. You need to decide whether the chance of a gold token dropping is worth the 25 gems.

    Burning question-the beastbane drops tokens in and out of seasons. Out of season After a while, will the staff and sword tokens reach their limit and extras be wasted since there will be no gold trade in the hut?

    If you have the MRC, then because the Display only drops sword and staff tokens, you can use them (plus the other item) for a glimmer alicorn or glimmer dragon. I guess there is the likelihood that you'll max on one of those silver tokens, yes.

    Also think of how many times you can collect from in 6 weeks which is about the time between events. I guess it also depends on how many you have once the monsters stop dropping tokens.

    I don't have the Mrc; I've only acquired 62 tokens in 5 seasons. If trade post would allow gold trades of extras dropped by beastbane I would consider buying it. But if I'm maxed on sword and staff and can't trade them I would have to wait until beastbane would drop 8 more troll tokens; during the wait, wouldn't we waste more sword and staff tokens since those trades would not be available. Is this correct?

    Yes, you're correct SW
