Question & Answers

Is the new chest difficult or what?

Ok, either I'm a baby (don't answer that) or this new Orders Chest may be too hard. I've been using amulets, hiring friends, etc and I'm really struggling to get items. I just played the Tree of Dates TWENTY times and didn't get one moonlight. I always imagined if I really focused, I could do the special quests in the allotted time. But at this rate it would take months. And a zillion ladybugs, carrots, arrows, etc.

Oh dear, I already sound like a whiner but is everyone else having a hard time? On a positive note, love the medallion thing.

Yes. I played night garden several times and finally received one item.

Hi Smuffin, sorry to hear you are having problems with finding the items. Initially I was having no luck either but that turned around. I have already 2/3 of the items. Just what I noticed that helps is banishing and then playing. I always get then except once, I also investigate immediately and was pretty lucky again in 50% of the time. I also rotate playing each photo twice or three times at the most and then go to another of the Chest Quest, but I have also been playing The quests as well and that seemed to work much better in finding items. Like you I kept playing one and had no luck or very little. Good luck!

Answer from: MRappey
Forgot to mention, I use the following talismen, scroll, money bag, fortune talisman and magic crystal, but any horseshoe will do. JJJ mentioned that the diamond horseshoe works wonders in a short time. I haven't been hiring friends sooo.... Hope you have better luck

Answer from: Smuffin
Thanks, MRappey! That helps. If it's going better for some then it should eventually turn around for me. Off to try your suggestions and will report back.

Hi, all! I was using 24h Talismans (Symbol of Success, Magisters amulet and Money tree). i didn`t have difficulty with quests, normally got them in first three searches. Luckily, i had enough bugs, carrots and fireflies. Most difficult to get were instruments from Illusionist room and Amusement park. But with some substantial meals ( 2x Dinner) and level up i managed to finish and open the chest. now i am just asking myself: What is wrong with me that i rushed so? Now i`ll get just bored again because there are not so many additional collections to make. 9 if i counted correctly.

I forgot to add, that i had Magic Crystal activated also.

Answer from: MRappey
My my Newmoon, that is supersonic fast. My only hiccup is not having enough carrots and Ladybugs... i wonder how Smuffin is doing though?

Posted: May 6, 2014, 11:45 AM

Answer from: Ren
Many of you are using talismans that increase coins earned. What good is that? I haven't found use for coinage much. So far I've played the necessary scenes several times and found one item. Any other hints? I'm finding the items requested pretty well, just not getting the rewards needed for opening the chest.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 12:01 PM

Answer from: Smuffin
Reporting in! Thanks to the good advice, I did much better. I wanted to play out the talismans before reporting, sorry for delay.

I used all the advised talismans and banished whenever I could. I don't think I'm doing as well as MRappey but substantially better than I was. I can see that I will finish if I can keep up with the firefly, carrot, arrows, etc. (I NEVER dreamt I'd run out of fireflies)

New Moon, what was in the chest? I may have read it somewhere but with my limited attention span ...

Thanks for the good advice, dear friends. I hope gifting gets sorted out soon. And the annoying 'scroll for every visit' glitch. Sure makes it slow.

Answer from: NewMooN
When i opened the chest it all went into Inventory. And as far as i could see there were only 2x Large Pandoras chests in there, that were new. So i think that`s the prize.

Posted: May 6, 2014, 12:19 PM

Answer from: Argh
Hi Smuffin, after the disappointing valentines box, I made sure to do a full inventory before opening the chest, so can tell (for me at least) it contains: 1x scroll of wisdom, 1x diamond horseshoe, 1x treasure map, 1x angel wings, 2x large pandoras chest and 1x talisman chest. So the rewards are somewhat worth the effort, but that said all those super charged talismans (used to be only available to buy with diamonds in shop) can now be won by combining new collections from tavern, so I had a few of each already just from playing tavern up to high seeker level.

Answer from: Clare
Well, that was very anticlimactic. Sorry, @Argh, but as someone who started playing this game after Halloween, I was hoping for a desktop icon. Someday, my dream will come true... ;)

Posted: May 6, 2014, 14:07 PM

Answer from: Argh
Perhaps they will re-do them next Halloween and Christmas Clare! Maybe they could provide a second level for those with them and opportunity to win for those without. Can't see much other options unless a lot of new pictures released it is getting pretty full up there.

Answer from: Jill
Those of you That are getting chest items to drop so fast does it make a difference if you are at a higher level in the game or the picture? I played night garden with the crystal tailsman and it took 4 times to get one item to drop. I am only on pro level for that picture as well. Just curious.

Answer from: MsCee
@Argh I am soo jealous. My flaky game won't let me play. I havent even seen what you're talking about yet. I'm losing my mind!

Posted: May 6, 2014, 18:50 PM

Answer from: Argh
@MsCee what is wrong with your game? Maybe we can figure it out?

Posted: May 7, 2014, 1:14 AM

Answer from: Matilda
I have only received 7 items (once I got 2 different ones from the night garden). It sounds as though I would have to use more talismans etc to earn open the chest than I would be rewarded ;). So I think I will continue on my merry way completing tasks and not fret over the chest. Thanks for all the information.

Answer from: Argh
@Jill - except for the odd Magister glitch (which hurt me big time on this challenge in tree of dates and illlionists room), the level of a picture shouldn't have any influence on whether you are more likely to win an item or not. If the item is unlocked on a particular level, then at that level or higher you have a chance to win the item. It sounds like the quest items are available on pro since you have won one already. I would follow the advice from others on this thread and use the most powerful luck talismans you have on hand. The magic crystal is pretty weak it only adds 12% to your odds of winning something. But it can be used in addition to another luck talisman to bring up your total. The fortune talisman (bronze horseshoe) is easy to come by and increases odds by 25% for 30min. The fortune amulet (golden horseshoe) increases by 30% for 90min. If you happen to have the symbol of success artefact it increases by 50% for 24 hours. As others have mentioned, you can now win the super charged talismans by combining collections gathered in Tavern. The diamond horseshoe (increases odds of winning items by 90% for 2 hours) is awarded for combining elegant hats and legendary swords. You should be able to get all of the elegant hats by about pro on Tavern, or simply by following the new quests.

All that said, luck talismans increase the quantity of items won, not the quality, they do not guarantee you will get one particular item, just that you will get more items for each play. Do not expect to win each time and you won't get too frustrated. There are still 12 days left in the challenge, so winning one item of each kind a day will get you there with time to spare. I used the symbol of success alone and got the items eventually, but I did play a lot over last few days (I have more than 250 silver badges for example and certainly didn't get one every picture I played). Like others above mentioned, I found I nearly always got one of the new items every time I banish an anomaly, so keep an eye out for them in night garden, mill, illusionists room, venice, tree of dates and amusement park and take advantage of them.

Answer from: MsCee
@Argh... I updated my game, I play on an IPad 4, opened after update played the tavern thru novice with the "you will find the item next time" message after each time. I am not able to gift friends but can open/accept gifts.... The same ones from before the update I've gotten them 4 times now. Nothing from 3 new friends since update that have verified sending me items. Now each time I go to tavern game goes right to G5 blue screen and at this rate I've already lost a lot of time although it seems the challenges are pretty easy once you can get on them.
Any thoughts?

Answer from: Argh
@MsCee - that is odd - the tavern crashing is a new one to me. Sorry if this advice sounds patronising, it isn't intended that way but always no harm in trying: Have you tried turning it off and on again? What I mean is did you start playing the game after if finished updating or did you restart the device first? Was the game open while you updated? These are things I try to avoid. What might help the friends situation but maybe not the tavern one is to just reset everything. First double tap home button on ipad to bring up list of open apps. If you are on ios7 swipe the large picture of each app up to quit them all. If you are on ios6 or lower hold one of the app icons until they start to wobble, then use the red dash in top left corner to quit them all. The go to settings - wifi - and switch wifi off (or put airplane mode on if using cellular data). Then go to settings - safari - and press clear cookies and data (you might lose open tabs in safari just so you know and were keeping something there for convenience). Quit settings and turn the ipad off for a couple of minutes. Turn back on ipad, turn back on internet connection in settings and then quit settings and open the game (so game only app open). This might reset your connection to the games servers and help with that. Let me know if it does anything for you. I'll have to think more about the tavern thing, but my gut says you might have to reinstall game (which would involve first saving current profile to a computer and then transferring back so don't lose anything).

Answer from: Argh
And now I am terrified some bad wording in that might accidentally lead someone to delete the app - i must stress 'quitting' and 'deleting' are two different things. By home button I mean the circular button you can press at bottom of ipad below screen. Double tapping this when not in the game will bring up all the open apps in a list in a banner at the bottom of screen on ios6 or lower or taking over all of the screen on ios7 or higher. In ios6 or lower, holding them until they wobble in that banner and pressing the dash in corner or icon in that banner will quit the app. Holding an icon on your main screen until it wobbles and pressing that dash will delete the app from your ipad. But you will get a delete warning so have a chance to cancel if you do this by accident. I am guessing most people will read the instructions above that way, but just in case...

Answer from: MsCee
@Argh the Wise.... Being the diligent pupil, I had already used your advice and infunboxed. After the first faux pas I did just what you suggested except for deleting app as it is backed up to my Mac at the office. I will attempt that later this morning and keep you posted.... Please be on the lookout for my message in a bottle should I fail miserably.

Answer from: Ash
Anyone know what the reward is? 99% of the time, the reward isn't worth the effort or expense. This might be one challenge I avoid - ladybugs and carrots are too precious in this game to throw away if the reward is something like a talisman.

Posted: May 7, 2014, 6:51 AM

Answer from: JJJ
@Ash, I created a new post titled "Tavern update - what is in the chest" and to save time, this is what it contains:

Thanks to Argh who posted this info in another post, but to make it easier to find I'm copying that info here:

"...I made sure to do a full inventory before opening the chest, so can tell (for me at least) it contains: 1x scroll of wisdom, 1x diamond horseshoe, 1x treasure map, 1x angel wings, 2x large pandoras chest and 1x talisman chest. So the rewards are somewhat worth the effort, but that said all those super charged talismans (used to be only available to buy with diamonds in shop) can now be won by combining new collections from tavern..."

Thanks, JJJ! Yep, I think I'll pass on this quest :).

Answer from: CJC
I have all so completed the chest challenge and received 1x scroll of wisdom, 1x diamond horseshoe, 1x treasure map, 1x angel wings, 2x large pandoras chest and 1x talisman chest. I was disappointed that the 80 items that you worked so hard to collect disappeared, my thinking was they would stay in your collections and become new collections
