Discussion New Questline: The Contest

Swill

I am on item #5 of The Contest, which is "Scout 1 Province". BUT scouting, for me, takes close to 2 full days to complete 1 province! And there are only 9 hours remaining in the contest. Is there a possibility the contest's time limit will be extended? I would really like to complete the contest, but am disappointed that this particular item seems to exclude me from participating further.

I can't log into the contest, is anyone else having the same problem?
Hi margie69wu,
It's not necessary to log in to the contest - just log in to the game, and you will see 2 additional quest givers at the left side of your screen. One will keep count of how many Contest quests you have done, and the other will give the actual quests :)

Hi Swill - the Contest will run for 9 days, so you should have plenty of time to scout that Province :)

Doh! So much for my stellar dyslexia skill. <blush> Thank you.
I'm as bad, misread Quest produce power of provision. Kept adding them to workshops and producing supplies, almost reported it then realised I had to produce one in The Magic Academy (12 hours) Doh!

I was lucky enough to have a scout returning, when the scout 1 province popped,, I now find Quest 12 scout 3 provinces or produce 3 "power of provision" spells,, what I'd like to know are these mixable ie., 1 scout and 2 spells or has it to be one or the other:eek:

There is a mandatory quest to produce spells? Too bad for me then. Never found space for that.

It's not mixable - you need to do one or the other. Also currently with these 'either/or' type quests, once you start doing one of the alternatives you cannot switch to the other (it simply won't count). So for example with the scout 3 Provinces or produce 3 Power of Provison spells, if your scout happens to be on his way to a Province, but you also set a Power of Provision spell creation up, and that finishes first, the scouting will not count - you will need to produce 3 Power of Provision spells to complete the quest.

As far as I know every building you up to five counts for quest,, some players are saying residents are glitched and don't register 4-5 but do register 5-6 ;)

Its a shame when my city is maxed out and it wants me to level a building to 5... I have no space to put in a building to level to 5. First they are pushing for Magic Academy to built if you had decided not to, and now I either tear down a building and rebuild for this contest or just miss out on that.

That's weird. I had a task "spend 20 KP's or complete 2 provinces". So at first I spent some KP's , so progress bar showed KP's. Anyway then I went and completed 1 province and the progress bar switched to show that. But then I spent the last KP's needed and it switched back to where I was with the KP's and I finished with KP's. So for me progress of both choices was saved.
