New Event: The Friendship Tournament

Hail, Adventurers!

The Friendship Tournament is here! It’s divided into four consecutive Chapters that unlock over time. Here is the first one!

Byron’s letters home have been answered by his father and his home kingdom has sent a retainer of knights and minor nobles out to meet the citizens of your kingdom. Join in the Friendship Tournament and help set up the games. Once the tournament is under way collect Tournament Banners by completing tournament games like jousting.

If you are level 19 or higher, you will see the following pop-up. Click (web) and/or tap (mobile/tablet) on the “Let’s Go” button to begin.

Byron, Temporary Hero:

In order to help you get the most Tournament Banners, you will need to get the temporary Hero, Prince Byron. From the Marketplace, click (web) and/or tap (mobile/tablet) on the “Special Heroes” tab, and then click (web) and/or tap (mobile/tablet) on the “Free” button and then the “Huzzah” button on the popup.

Check our video about Byron:

The Friendship Tournament Event Quests:

Before you can earn some awesome rewards, you must complete the Weekly Friendship Tournament Event Quests (Chapters 1 – 4), which will unlock over time. To see the current Weekly Quest (Chapter), click (web) and/or tap (mobile/tablet) on the Progress Bar at the bottom of the gameboard (see image below), and then click on the “Continue” button on the Overall Progress tab (the first tab) of the Event Center. Each Weekly Quest (Chapter) has four sub-Quests, which each have three parts that have to be completed (i.e. 12 tasks total per Weekly Quest). If you complete all of the tasks of the entire Weekly Quest (Chapter), you will get some great prizes, such as XP or Crowns!

In addition, your Progress Bar will fill up with Banner Fabric rope for each task you complete.

From the Overall Progress tab of the Event Center, click (web) and/or tap (mobile/tablet) on the “Quests” button to access that particular sub-Quest (see image below)

As you complete the tasks of a sub-Quest, a portion of the red curtain will reveal a hidden picture, giving you a glimpse of what is happening in the kingdom. (See image below.) Each week additional images may appear to give an even deeper look into the Friendship Tournament. Click (web) and/or tap (mobile/tablet) on the “View Start” or “View End” buttons to view this additional content.

The Featured Market Tab: This event we are introducing the Featured Tab in the Market. Several items specific to this event will be found in this tab and more will be unlocked as you progress. Click (web) and/or tap (mobile/tablet) on the Featured Tab (see image below) to access these items.

Tournament Trainers: In addition to the new tab there is a new game mechanic debuting in the Friendship Tournament Event. Tournament Trainers are gameboard items available through the Featured Tab in the Market. They are used in various ways and are interacted with by consuming both dropped and crafted items. As the items are consumed a progress bar is progressed. Upon completing the Tournament Trainer it disappears from your gameboard and leaves behind prizes for your completion.

Some Tournament Trainers can consume multiple items. It’s up to you to decide which path to take. Items that are easier to find or craft may not advance the progress bar as far as those items that are more difficult to obtain.

The rewards for interacting with these items are broken up into two types, rewards and final rewards. Rewards (shown at the top) are given every time you interact with the item. Final Rewards (shown at the bottom) ONLY drop on your final interaction with the item.

*NOTE Different items that are consumed in the tending of Tournament Trainers may yield improved rewards. Also, there are some Premium Tournament Trainers that have a smaller progress bar and yield greater rewards.

New Event: Bluebelle’s Search

Hail, Adventurers!

Bluebelle has seen almost nothing of her love Bramble since he was banished by dark sorcery. Every day she dreams of his return and thirsts for just a glimpse of her wandering love. With every passing day, her longing and heartbreak increases. She’s desperate for a solution… desperate enough to turn to two of the most volatile, eccentric – and brilliant – minds in the kingdom: Magnus and Giovanni.

Magnus has his magic, while Giovanni has his gadgets. Maybe between the two, they can help Bluebelle find her banished beau. They’re still each a little frustrated from their recent intellectual contest. Bluebelle’s confident they could help her find Bramble, if only they would work together! Maybe a little sweet talk and fairy charm will help persuade them.

The Bluebelle’s Search event is broken up into for consecutive Chapters that unlock over time.

If you are level 17 or higher and have Magnus and Giovanni unlocked, you will see the following pop-up. Click (web) and/or tap (mobile/tablet) on the “Let’s See” button to begin. (You will not need Bluebelle unlocked to complete this event.)

Crystallized Honey & Mystic Orb drop rates

Hail Adventurer!
 
Good news! Magnus just cast the Spell of Abundance for Crystallized Honey and Mystic Orbs, this means these items should now drop more often for you when exploring Mount Cinder and harvesting your Beehives! 
 
Tip for Crystallized Honey: In order to get Crystallized Honey you need to harvest the Wild Beehive for now but this item will be made available to the Waxy Beehive shortly!
 
Tip for better chances to find Mystical Orbs: It all depends which hero’s you are grouping together to explore Mount Cinder!
