    Castle Story: 4/21 Update - The Cherry Hive Event | EXPIRED

    Can you hear that? Has someone new gotten lost in the Glimmerwood? Everyone, do what you can to help this newcomer! Retreat not from this opportunity... Rulers far and wide may find themselves a new friend, if they lend a hand! Yonder forest will not stand in the way of our quest to help all our friends, new and old!

    [==Update requires Level 17+, and is live from 4/21 until 5/2 @ 4pm.==]

    Spoiler: show
    I've been playing a game! Have you figured out this week's answer? The answer is: CHERRY

    The glitch in part 10 is being investigated.... It may be better if you're on part 10 now to NOT complete it, but to wait for a few hours until we hear back from the team.

    Thanks!
    1. The glitch is Part 10 has been fixed. You need wood and not sealing dust to upgrade the tree.

    2. Do I still need to ask for dust? It doesn't matter about this goal as it's redundant. You can send out requests if you want to so that the goal is removed from your book. Otherwise, upgrade tree, welcome Anthia and allow the goal in your book to expire. I know it's a nuisance to see it in your book, but it will disappear at the conclusion of the event.

    The Cherry Hive
    prepared by SpiritWind
    Timed / optional event. For both iOS and Android players.



    Pre-requisites: Level 17+, and is live from 4/21 until 5/2 @ 4pm
    Time zone converter compare where you are with California.
    You can set this forum to your time or Pacific Time in the settings at the right top of this forum, go to General settings, scroll to Date & Time Options




    When you upgrade the Cherry Hive to level 5 Anthia appears in your kingdom. She is tiny and often hides behind buildings/items. If you put your game into edit mode she is much easier to find.

    There is no glitch in this part. If you cannot see her, sync your game and try again. She is definitely there


    Just saw the beautiful winged faerie in my neighbours kingdom, she s flying around next other characters, she is so pretty!




    Notes:
    1.
    Looking for Neighbors for Sealing Dust? Do NOT post in thread. Post in this ADD ME thread thread now closed

    2. The ability to upgrade the tree only becomes available at different parts. Some times, it will NOT show the upgrade button. This is normal.

    Extracts from the Hub:
    1. Growing Trees
    Spoiler: show
    All these trees take 5 waters to grow from sapling to tree.
    cost | tree name | no of chops | time between waters

    400 Elm tree | 8 chops | 3 minutes
    400 Oak tree | 8 chops | 30 minutes

    I've done a couple chops on yellow acer, red acer, white birch & crabapple trees with no luck finding cherry dust. Anyone had any luck?
