Just another reason why I love this forum and the helpful people here ( even if you don't know it)

My baby game Twinkle .. Trina took my last shards. Accidentally accepted her quest when I didn't even have enough . So now I am on search for ways of getting more shards. I think I have 5 right now! 

Got some ideas here. Thanks!

And I am working the dice game now with Twinkle's game.

if you need shards and have lots of coin, join the ice breath exchange. Each ice breath is worth frorty shards. They cost 290 coin to gift if you do not have one.


From: CindyK65


Please put the Ice Breath on your WL and a note on your avatar ‘Need Shards’. You can get 17 shards from it and friends want to help. Also, look at your inventory. You can get 1-3 shards for a lot of event items or regular inventory. Just don’t drop below 20 in inventory.

on Twinkle’s friend list. CindyK gave great advice smile_cat

 I gift in order,  unless a 911 plea sent out , and will gift you ice breaths .snowflake

One thing that has helped me in raising my shards is to click on the golden butterflies in the private room - and one or more rooms of your friends. Wait til they regenerate and click again - I have gotten anywhere from 1-3 shards per room doing that, though the golden butterflies don't always give - it's random. I usually mass about 10 - 20 a day doing this. (depends on how often or long I click on them)

Of course, in reading what you wrote here I see now that Trina will take all my shards when I hit 200 (I'm at 175 now) - (lol- olh, well. Next time I'll know not to hit accept on her task, and that rose-filled wheelbarrow or cardinal/ bush in the spring room will just have to wait!) ;-)

if you don't go back to her to accept the key and coins, than you still have your shards.

that way it will be easier to get more shards, before giving them all away.

(I had my Trina on house arrest for a while, now she is sitting in the background.)

good luck shardhuntingwink.

Thank you! :) I'll do that...

I think I need to go past 500 (the cost for the roses/bush in the private room), as well as the 200 she's demanding - right? From what I understand (and have seen) you have to have a lot in your inventory for things to drop, because if you start from nothing they never (or rarely) will. I read that here - the minimum being 20 -

So would you recommend me waiting to hit accept with her and give her the 200 shards she wants when I have 720 shards accumulated? (or should I wait for more when it comes to shards?)

500- for roses/bush for private room

200- for Trina

20 - for extra? (before I hit accept with her?)

the decorations in the rooms: you can get them at any time, so don't do that now.

in a short while there will be the spring event, a good change to get a lot of coins and items. those items you can get shards from. a nice way to build a good stock.

and if you are far enough in the game try the ice breath you can find in the forum how to do that (don't create them,but buy them for your friends and shard every one you get.

everyone here has to learn how balance moving forward, building stock,not running out of coins every daywink.

do the marathon, not the sprint

I'm not there yet - am only on Level 28 - but thank you for the notice! I'll remember that. :)

IMO only, the only advantage to Trina,s quests are the gold keys to open the rooms. Anything after that, is just for your satisfaction. There is no advantage to decorating your rooms. At the level you are, it would probably be best to just concentrate on leveling up. Ice Breaths won’t be available until you are in the 60’s levels and it is really difficult to do even the DQ’s with an airship b/c most of them will require you to send at least 2 to meet the requirements. 

My best advice would be to mostly ignore DQ’s and Trina’s quests until you get close to level 30. If you need coins, don’t hesitate to put an Ancestor’s Spirit or Mechanical Heart on your WL. Put ‘Need Coins’ on your avatar. Your friends want to help and you can level up pretty fast with help! 

Wish we could be friends! Good Luck and keep storming that castle! CindyK
