Well poked Apollo - very eloquent - and thanks D@nger for your hard work. I can't see me bothering with any of it but it needs sorting out.
I stopped as soon as Trina asked me to send airships. I have a lot but want to keep it that way so I can always gift.
Also by spending time in the rooms and collecting butterflies I have less time to do the rounds. Disenchant and before you know it there's no inventory left. I like gifting as part of my game.

By the way Apollo I hope you are not MIA

But that is the case, isn't it?


Sorry to bust your bubble Anglesey... but the answer is no. Everything in your normal inventory is worth 1 shard if you disenchant it, regardless of the sell price. The only items that give more than 1 shard are "Crafted Items" which are worth 1000's of coin and then you receive, at most, 33 shards. H**L will freeze over before I disenchant a crafted item.

I got four shards for some of the items from the zoom areas or whatever they are called, for instance the Eye of Hatred is one that comes to mind. Or have I totally misunderstood everything that is going on (again). I will double-check but as stated earlier I have sort of lost interest in Trina; not worth the bother for various reasons.

Very disappointed with the whole update.

Yes......some items are worth more shards......as each items sell price increases it may or may not increase the shards you get.......a crystal ball and wand sell for 25 coins and 75 coins respectivly.....yet you receive 1 shard for each to disenchant........**D@NgeR** out

another idea for shards would be to get awarded the same as the person visiting gets when they go for the butterflies in your room. kind of a " I was here" gift.

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to pop in here and thank players especially apollogold and General_hobojoe for bringing this to the Moderation Team's attention. It is definitely understandable wanting to let us know of the difference between the first and second cup for this achievement. I've gone ahead and brought this to the the attention of the team that works with the developers and once we hear of any information, we will definitely post in the forums. I deeply apologize for the frustration this has caused and thank you for your patience as we look into this.

******************************************

I came to the forum to read what people were saying about the shards. I thought, "There MUST be a way of obtaining shards without losing inventory or zapping butterflies!" There are times I've zapped all 3 butterflies and my reward was zilch, nothing, nada - no shard. In my room, as well as in rooms of friends.

It is bad enough that zapping butterflies is the only way to earn a shard (well, except the inventory thing which I will not do) - but to zap 3 butterflies and come up empty handed?!! Is this really what the developers envisioned? Do they really think this is fair?!! Did they put their heads together and think this through?

Someone on their development team should have spoken out about how shards would be earned or rewarded to the players. This may be a "small issue" to them - but small issues like this (by the way, I don't think it's a small issue) but it is an issue like this that will leave players trudging through the castle - instead of having fun Storming The Castle !!

If I am "disenchanted" with this whole update, how many shards do I get, or does someone else who is not "disenchanted" get them?

OMG Sadie, You killed me with that one! Almost fell off my chair from laughing so hard.

Normally I love to get the achievements and while some have taken quite a long time for me to get they were, at least possible. These just seem impossible. Am pretty much out of airship items and I won't even put them on my wish list as everyone else needs them too! Asking for that many airship items is disenchanting since we have no control over which items we get.

Generally I try to be the one who sees the positive but this last update is the first time that I feel really disappointed.

OK, one positive is the inventory page update. That is really nice, but the rest of it doesn't make me feel like playing and boy, do I miss the game!!

Even giving us an extra shard for every 100-200 butterflies,would be great,as of right now I feel that I am beating a dead horse (i.e. butterflies)

There needs to be more ways to aquire the shards and keys to even be a reasonable endeavor to complete....as of now this new interlude is senseless to even engadge in......**D** out

Those dang shards are really silly. I was in my room and a friends room today and got zip, zilch, nada. I am trying really hard to ignore the latest update (?) and just go about the rest of the game. Forget about trying to get all the achievements at this point. Just trying to stay afloat on level 57.

Oh well happy or unhappy gaming in the castle.

Yea the ratio of gold butterfly to shard received should be a 1:1......not 20:1 as it is now...especially sense we have to wait on top of it all for a butterfly "re-boot".......2 min.......**D** out

I've given some thought to the problem. How did the shard process get the "stamp of approval" before sending it out to Midnight Castle players? Then it hit me. None of them attended Hogwarts, thus they have no knowledge of how enchanting / disenchanting works outside their Big Fish world.

An Owl to Professors Dumbledore and McGonagall is in order here. THEY would know how to fix the shard disenchantment issue. As many of us know - McGonagall may be tough, but she is also fair.

Sigh, happy as a geek!
