50 Hints, day 18

[Post New]by susiewastaken on Dec 30, 16 9:07 AM
I know we could use these in past Castle Challenges, and they counted towards 'using hints':

the Hint button, the wand and the crystal ball.

Does anyone recall if using the Lightning Flash counts, too?

thanks!

I believe that it does. In fact, I'm counting on it!

I'm almost sure it does too.

The lightening flash did work before, I expect it will again....

I have my Night mode off, so I plan on turning it back on just to use the flash more often.

Me too!
And I plan to use that crystal ball thingie -- I find it altogether useless any other time.

I have 3 games working the Castle Challenge. I work it by keeping an HO open in each game while watching tv, then just keep hitting the hint when the timer allows until the challenge completes. Two for one, challenge done and room made on DVR.
This way you can save those wands globes and flashers for gifting or in most cases much needed coin. Collecting them really does add up to quite a bit of coin.

I just use the Hint button as I work the rounds and keep the other things for either gifting or coin. It is tedious and slows you down, but quite doable in less time than you think.

I have heard about the set timer method befor.. I never understood why you do not use the time to get some airship items and petfood collected ?

How do you "turn off" night mode? If I could, I definitely would turn it off as I already have completed the challenge for it. Thanks!!

To turn off night mode, click on the gear thingy at the top right of your screen (the one you click on to exit the game on PC). When you get to the "options" screen, click on additional settings. "Turn off night mode" is one of those. Just click it and night mode is off.

What is the "Lightening Flash"?

it's the bonus hint that allows you to change your "mode" HO scene, into the normal scene.... so, if you get one of the three modes, you can use this bonus to change it back to normal .... (think of a large lolipop, where you have a stick and the top is over-sized and round)...

What level are you on?

I don't think the earliest levels get the Lightning Flash, because they haven't hit the level to get the different modes of play.

At some level, random HOS might be changed slightly...in darkness, or mirror image or with item shapes instead of names at the bottom of the screen.

Anyway, the Lightning Flash allows a player to change the HOS back to its normal appearance. They can be clicked at the bottom left of an HOS, next to the crystal balls and wands.
...............
My original q was just wondering if we can use them to count as "hints" for day 18 of the current Castle Challenge, and it seems the answer is yes.

The Silhouette Mode, Mirror Mode, and Night Mode are not based on the Level on which the player is playing. It is based on how far you are into the actual HOS after it opens.

There are 8 levels on each room as of the June 13, 2016, upgrade:
0 - 75,000 -- 6 items -- 10 coin -- 30 sec recharge -- enter early for free ----Note: Silhouette Mode is unlocked at 75,000 -- Bonus: 20 coins when level up

75,001 - 150,000 -- 6 items -- 10 coin -- 90 sec recharge -- enter early for free ---- Note: Mirror Mode is unlocked at 150,000 -- Bonus: 30 coins when level up

150,001 - 200,000 -- 8 items -- 11 coin -- 2 min recharge -- enter early for free ---- Note: Night Mode unlocked at 200,000 -- Bonus: 40 coins when level up

200,001 - 250,000 -- 10 items -- 13 coin -- 2 min; 30 sec recharge -- enter early for free -- Bonus: 50 coins when level up

250,001 - 500,000 -- 12 items -- 15 coin -- 5 min recharge -- enter early for 1 diamond -- Bonus: 100 coins when level up

500,001 - 2,500,000 -- 14 items -- 20 coin -- 10 min recharge -- enter early for 2 diamonds -- Bonus: 150 coins when level up

2,500,001 - 10,000, 000 -- 18 items -- 30 coin -- 30 min recharge -- enter early for 3 diamonds -- Bonus: 200 coins when level up

10,000,001 is max amount -- 22 items -- 50 coin -- 1 hr recharge -- enter early for 5 diamonds


What this means is that when you first open a room, you are within the 0 to 75,000 range ---- you get 6 items displayed and get 10 coins when you have found all the items.....When you have earned 75,000 Star points (the score you get when you complete the HOS), you then get a bonus amount of 20 coins in addition to the 10 coins......from 75,001 to 150,000 you still get 6 items.....etc. etc. etc. for what is posted above.

Again....the modes in the HOS have nothing to do with what level the player has achieved in the game.....they have to do with the amount of points they have earned within each HOS

Does anyone know if the Amulets effect the hint timer?

Will find out soon...lol

eta: No reason it would change the timer...but luckily the other items that count as "hints" don't have time limits before you can use again.

think I might use an amulet to keep re-hitting the mermaid's boat...
