    Castle Story: Monster Hunts | Gold Troll tokens | How it works

    Information about Monster Hunts
    Also known as: Royal Games, Leaderboards, Beast Master Challenge and Monster Hunts (don't know why we have so many names for the same thing! )



    Link to Information Nugget on Beasts





    The following notes have been generally consistent from season to season. Season specific information may be posted in the respective discussion thread.

    * Check you can spawn monsters!
    * Pink Skunkupines don't drop tokens when you defeat them. They might spawn from pink and wedding alicorns.
    * Gem horses may not spawn glimmer trolls.
    * Trolls may be included but they change from being included season to season.
    * Monsters also drop their normal items in addition to the tokens.
    * Do the Bronze Hunter Trade if you are nearly maxed on Shield tokens so that they don't go to waste.
    * A Level 5 Jousting Arena will spawn a monster on every collection. Link to Jousting Arena Renovations thread.
    * The Mythic Research Center (from L22) crafts are available to craft anytime if you have the tokens.
    * If it's your first Monster Hunt, the new trades might appear after you do 1 of any trade in the Trade Wagon.
    * Remember to collect from Princess Lorelei's fountain for a chance at gold tokens (about a 1 in 3 drop rate)

    * BLUE DIRE BOARS will only spawn once a day.

    Summary:
    1. Horses (for unlimited glimmer golems)
    2. Dead trees (for once daily blue dire boar)
    3. Princess Lorelei's fountain (chance to drop gold troll tokens)
    4. Jousting arena (level five guaranteed monster spawn)
    5. Monster statues (drop silver tokens)
    6. Troll sparring pit (guaranteed troll spawn)
    7. Lair of beasts (guaranteed monster spawn)
    8. Dark Den (not guaranteed)
    9. Go through inventory for any monster traps
    10. The Prison (mermaid storyline) (guaranteed marmosea spawn)

    Information about the Daily Hunt
    * Both iOS and Android players sharing the daily hunt goals.
    * The Daily hunts regenerate every 24 hours. If you do not get the daily hunt, it's only a timey-wimey thing! It will show up in your book soon!
    * If you do not complete a daily hunt, it will expire and reset into a new daily hunt.
    * Seasons 1-6 included skunkupines in the Novice goal.
    * Season 7 did not include skunkupines in goals, however defeating one still drops shield tokens.
    * Season 7 introduced a new daily hunt called the Beast Master Challenge. The type of animal changes each season.
    * Blue dire boars multi-spawning has changed several times now from multi to single. A separate note will be made in each Season to indicate what the spawn rate is.


    * All players
    Each day you will have the chance to battle a monster to get Tokens. There are 4 types of Daily Hunts:
    1. Novice Challenge - defeat 5 fangbeasts
    2. Adept Challenge - collect from a Dead Tree to trigger a blue dire boar (30 hits) | single spawn
    3. Sovereign Challenge - collect from a Horse to trigger a purple golem (90 hits). Most other horses also trigger the golem. | multi spawn
    Note: you get multi hits on each sword hit, so a 30 hit monster might only take 20 energy.
    4. Beast Master Challenge (new in season 7) - fight 5 (seasonal new animal which drops special tokens in the season.)

    Daily Hunt - Novice Challenge



    Daily Hunt - Adept Challenge



    Daily Hunt - Sovereign Challenge


    Daily Hunt - Beast Master Challenge

    Information about Princess Lorelei's Fountain


    Princess Lorelei's Fountain (2x2) limit 2 Cannot be sold
    Info: A pond built so all my marvel at the beauty of the mermaid Princess Lorelei's Sapphire.
    Crafted: Trade Wagon, 1 hour - 2 blue sapphires
    Drops: butterfish, fish, mermaid scales, water
    Additional Drops during Monster Hunts: gold troll tokens
    Collection time: 5 hours
    Note: a second fountain was offered for purchase in December 2016. Limit updated to 2.



    The fountain will ONLY drop tokens during the monster hunt events. After the event is over it will not drop tokens.
    This is part of a quest chain that unlocks at level 22. That quest is not timed. It's here to stay, so no worries if you're not level 22 yet or don't finish it before the season is over.


    Q: Where do I get the Sapphire's from?
    A: The sapphires were a reward from a previous iOS only goal. The only way to get the sapphires now is to make them from gold troll tokens in the trade wagon. The fountain takes 2 sapphires which need 10 gold troll tokens each.

    Lorelei's Fountain Drops during a Monster Hunt: gold troll tokens, water, mermaid scales, orange fish, butterfish
    Lorelei's Fountain Drops between events: water, mermaid scales, orange fish, butterfish
    Note: Gold Troll Token drop rate: it's probably about a 1 in 5 collections. It's not every time... SW

    Goals

    1. Have 2 sapphires










    2. A Mermaid's Gift - Get Princess Lorelei's Fountain from the Trade Wagon
    Reward: 270 coin, 2 xp, 3 gold tokens
