St. Patrick’s Day Event – Tutorial

By | February 26, 2020


The St. Patrick’s Day Festival is here! Collect Pots of Gold by completing Quests
and in incidents around your city. You can also receive some additional Pots
of Gold, just for logging in each day! Once you’ve gathered some, you’re ready
to help Paddy McCharms in his preparations for the St. Patrick’s Day festival. Open the event window to get things started. On the left you’ll see the Festival preparation
site, as well as the town’s docks. Across the river you’ll see the factory
district. The aim is to produce goods from various factories,
and transport these by ship to the festival. Click on the first factory slot to build the
Hat Factory. Once built, it will automatically start producing
hats for the festival! Once a production cycle is complete, click
again to move the goods to the factory district stockpile, so that they’re ready for collection. Click on the ship in the bottom left corner
to send it across the river to collect the goods and bring them back to the festival. Once the ship has returned, click on the festival
to sell the goods and earn yourself some Shamrocks! The Shamrocks that you earn from selling goods
at the festival can be used to upgrade your factories, improving their output, and maximizing
production. You can also upgrade your ship, to increase
the amount of goods the boat can carry across the river. As well as the festival itself, to increase
how many goods the festival can sell at once. If you’ve gathered a lot of Shamrocks, and
don’t want to upgrade the productions incrementally, you can tick the ‘max’ button in the top corner
to upgrade them much faster! Also, if you want to, you
can spend Pots of Gold to advance your productions
instantly by 2, 4 or 8 hours. This is a quick way to produce additional
Shamrocks if you need them. Now that we’ve got a good supply line set
up, Paddy has a suggestion! He’ll introduce you to some fine young folk
who, for a fee, will manage your factories. Click on the top hat to hire one, who will automate production of goods, as well as improving the amount produced. Upgrading a manager costs Pots of Gold, so be sure to complete quests to have plenty to go around. You can also hire a Festival Manager, to automatically manage the festival on your behalf, and a Shipyard Manager, to automate the shipment of goods to the festival. Now this is all great, but what’s in it for
you? Along the top of the event window, there’s
a list of three tasks. Complete a task to make progress towards the
Grand Prize. Finish 25 to earn the Grand Prize reward! If you’re not sure what you need to do for a task, click on the arrow on the right side of the list for a full overview. Each one you complete will be replaced with a new one, Giving you a chance to progress even closer to the grand prize. There’s a limited number of tasks that can
completed in each town, meaning once you’ve completed them all, the townsfolk will be
ready to start the festivities! Completing all the tasks is optional, but
if you finished them all, Or if you feel that they’re getting too tough Once you have collected enough Shamrocks you
can start your journey to the next town. To do this, click on Continue button in the
bottom right corner. On your way to the next town, you’ll get
the chance to snag some awesome rewards, In the form of 6 reward boxes. You can open one for free, and as many more
as you like for Pots of Gold. If you open all 6 boxes, you’ll earn the collection
reward on the right-hand side. Once you’re ready to move on, click continue
to start a new town. You’ll take your Pots of Gold, and any progress towards the grand prize with you, Starting afresh with a new set of tasks to work towards. But of course, these box rewards aren’t
all you can win. The main Grand Prize reward for the St. Patrick’s Day event is the brand-new Celtic Forest building Set. This beautiful set of 5 buildings with 2 levels each bring a taste of the Emerald Isle to your city. Once fully upgraded and placed next to one
another, the Celtic Forest set will output a bunch of unique rewards, from Forge Points,
Goods to resources and military boosts!

    Feel like I'm watching Tom Hanks in the movie Big again with this game. As he plays with the city building in front of the designers and says "I don't get it. What does the skyscraper turn into?"

    I would say just be very careful how you spend the pots of gold, that seems to be the limiting resource.

    Truly boring event lacking any joy. St. Patrick’s Day is a joyous party, not drudgery and work. I was expecting rainbows with pots of gold at the end where I’d find a leprechaun who would grant me wishes that I could choose from. Not shipping hats in a factory district back and forth for days. This feels like work with no rewards

    YOU BLEW IT BIG TIME! Fire whoever is responsible for this terrible event. It’s making me want to stop playing the game

    The first manager in every building should have been free. And it should have been worked on more, 2 hours to get to a bottleneck of waiting for Festival to hit 300 over the next 10 hours. Its a start but its so far a badly designed Idle Game with micotransactions sprinkled in. The fact you can't earn gold in the event means any gold spent is gold gone – people that upgrade managers lose rewards. It shouldn't be like that. Could have kept the pay to win aspect as just the time skips and it would be much better. I don't even know how paying players would find this event fun or rewarding.

    do we have to pay shamrocks in order to gain access to the gift boxes when we're finished with a city? Or do we automatically gain access to those? I ask bc at the bottom of the "proceed to next town" at 2.52, there's a button at the bottom that says 8.4Q? Just wondering if I need to build up a stock of shamrocks before I move to my next city….

    Seems pretty straight forward to me. Don’t use all your pots of gold to upgrade your factories too quicklyThey are worth much more at when you use them with the more advanced factories..

    I told you the last time. Way too many events. You do these with about 2 to 3 weeks in between. When there is always an event it isn't one. You told me last time that all events are voluntary but it's hardly the point. Events should accentuate the game, be something players look forward to. You've made them exhausting.

    Ok the instructions were bad and you only learn how to play after reading the comments a day later .I get that part. But if I spend the time and effort in building my first town up and get it humming along nicely and then decide to start a new town are you really saying that you start "FRESH" As in everything you worked hard on is gone and you start from zero again and NOT KEEP THE FIRST TOWN WORKING? Thats going to really suck and everyone is going to say F You FOE its not worth it. If you got to keep each town as you progress then it would be cool to see each one develop. But not if you have to start again and again over the next 20 days.

    The event is actually much simpler than it appears. I have been working for a German company for 15 years and one thing Germans are really bad at is writing manuals and explaining things. Hence Germans build things in Germany and we write manuals in the USA… 😀 No hard feelings Germans fully acknowledge the fact that Americans can explain anything to anyone.

    This even is a classic Idle Builder / Resource Accumulator game. If you ever played Realm Grinder, Dungeons Inc, AdVenture Capitalis or similar, this is exactly the same.

    Na ez az esemény amire egy gyémit sem költök. Senkinek nem ajánlom.Anyira nem éri meg a kelta erdő. Forge-ért nem éri meg. Termékért mégannyira sem. A támadó egységnek plusz támadás és védekezése is elenyésző.

    You know what I’ve noticed is that people with younger cities HATE this game because we don’t have the resources to get as many gold pots as quickly and fulfill the quests as easily, so it’s not going to be as easy for us to just throw gold pots at our cities to get the festival managers to move things along faster knowing that gold pots are a limited resource that we’ll need to open chests. I have been looking around at the cities of my guildmates and my neighbors, and I’ve noticed that people with far more advanced cities (or who are willing to spend diamonds) already have level 1 of the moon gate. Whereas I have 15 more quests to go before I get there, and I’m not even done with the first city

    This is definitely a “if you are more advanced in the game you’ll do well and enjoy it more” kind of event. So the rest of us are being called unskilled or stupid for simply not having the resources of people who have been playing for years

    My young city was really helped by the Winter Event and the Forgebowl Event. I got lots of FP and cool prizes every day that helped my city along. This event is not helping my city at all. It’s draining my resources, and I can see that it’s going to punish me for not being further along in the game. I’ve already used up most of my supplies on the quests and have only gotten to number 20. Nothing to show for it. And not even done with one city. And the quests are going to get harder and ask for things I can’t do, making it impossible for me to complete them. No Celtic square thingy for me I guess. Way to punish people with younger cities and turn them off of the entire game!

    This is a joke of an event.
    No daily rewards, so ZERO options on what to worth towards, so you end up with a bunch of junk you don't want and VERY LITTLE you do want – and the "reward set" is so pathetic I'm just selling the pieces off in the auction house when I get them for what little they give there.
    Winter event was a TON better.
