Now I found a glitch. I have about 35 villagers but the game won't check the "reach a village pop of 20" and the wizard doesn't do anything when I drag him to the tower ruins. I can't repair the tower. Other than that all's good :P
@Rowan...you're welcome ^_^
There is plenty information about blowing up bridges in a comment above or in the walkthrough. You'll find the reasons why you can't blow it up there.
Check to see if there are animals on it or any other characters, check if your hero or other character is across the bridge (you have to take them back) and I forgot what else.
Now back to me
I managed to find the Duke using a previous save but now I can't repair te tower. The wizard doesn't do anything when I drag him to the ruins and the game doesn't seem to "see" that I have over 20 villagers...glitch, I suppose. I do have windows 7...
You're welcome, you're welcome ^_^
Hi! I am in K3 and I am having trouble getting the helmets. I know that when I destroy the black knight's lair, there will be one. I need 2 more. I have done everything else I can think of(except the bard has not shown up). I have 13 soldiers, most of which are knight captains. Once before I got to this point and defeated the lair, only to get only one helmet and I was not allowed to free the trapped people. Their cages would not light up, and they aren't so far this time either. I am hoping they will light up if I get the helmets. Any suggestions? Please? Thanks!
One funny thing happened; One of my archers wears a helmet because I gave him one before he became an archer. Also, I have 2 knight captains wearing the black knight helmets.
Lori, When I could not blow up a bridge, I sent someone across it, and then the mace appeared. - Are you sure you have 20 civilians?(soldiers and knights don't count) The first glitch I experienced with this game was in K1; suddenly the game disregarded 9 soldiers and I had to restart so that I could get credit for the soldiers eating my food.
Also, the wizard does not repair the tower. He just removes the blue stones. Did you find all 8 cornerstones and the 7 fragments of the old tower?
I've got the same problem as some seem to have here. I've got 24 villagers but it wont check the have 20 villagers box. Anyone have a solution? :)
The links for the Ancient Tower screen shots for the stones seem to be broken. I have yet to find the quarry to get the other stones, so far I've found four.
I am in K2 - I have completed most of the quests but I am stuck cause I can't get a magic bean to grow my vine at the ruins because I cannot complete the merchant trade on the frogs because I can't find any frogs - ANYWHERE!!! What can I do? I can't complete the love potion either because of this? I tried going back and found a frog in an earlier save but it wouldn't let me kill it??
@ Those experiencing "20 villagers" not being checked-off --
I had the same thing, but once I finished the quest, that is when your villagers are counted (I suppose that's in case some leave due to homelessness or joblessness prior to the completion of the other tasks?)
@ Gill --
The frogs are in or near a pond in the southeast corner of the kingdom (i.e. the very far right bottom corner of the map. If they're not actually in the pond, they may be gathered just outside the boundary on the edge of the screen. There's often one in the river just north of that same area.
To make matters worse, once you defeat the frog, the little tiny frog leg is very hard to spot on the screen, especially if it's underwater... so keep sharp eyes out!
There are 3 large,dark stones grouped together next to a ridge near the tower ruins; you have to build a quarry there to get several of the stones.
Wish I could get more black knights to attack me so I could get their helmets.
I went back to K2 to repair the garden ruins; the first 4 masons removed the ruins instead of repairing them. Finally, the 5th one repaired it, so be aware of this glitch.
I seem to remember that there is a magic bean in the upper left corner; you must defeat the giant to get the bean. Take health potions with you because the giants will kill the hero and they regenerate while the hero is dead.
I'm just curious if anyone knows how to unlock and build a dragon hatchery?
I was purchasing mystery seeds for something to do when a black knight finally appeared in my village and left a 3rd helmet-the game gave me credit for 4! LOL But I am unable to continue because when I defeat the stronghold, the game still says I need to find it.I did get the scroll which is a letter from the trapped villagers. I can't free the trapped people. This is the 2nd time I have played this far and I give up-I contacted the site where I bought it and they were no help. Good luck everyone!
First thing this walkthrough is great, nice job! So not sure what I did wrong, but I'm in Kingdom 2 and have completed all quest including all 4 village request except the sword and arrows but it won't let me add anymore. I have 3 archers, 3 knights and only 4 high level soldiers. Is there anything I can do, or do I have to start over? Thanks for any help you can offer.
to unlock the dragon hatchery,
you must have 4 libraries employed by at least one scholar each
need help please on kingdom 2. How do i get to the towers that are pouring water onto the ruins? need to get to them to rebuild the cathedral but my characters wont move over that way. Can't seem to get round the hills and also cant get across to the section i can see that has trolls and lots of stuff to collect.
Can you still finish the Merchant trade 2 quest if you already picked up the dragon scales before you was suppose to?
to get to the giant and the towers,
build a stone bridge across the river in the upper right
for everyone who is having trouble with the 20 people requirement, you must not get the 20 people until you are told to do so; you can dismiss people by clicking on the boot,then destroy a house before new people move in
Did you upgrade the castle? You can't reach higher populations (can't remember the number) until you do.
I figured it out. I had too many villagers. Love this game:)
The get the last marble in Kingdom 1 kill the bunny and blow out the bridge!
The game didn't ask me to find the fragments, only the cornerstones which I did find. I took one to the tower and it doesn't "stick"...What I mean is, I can still pick it up. And all it sais is to send a wizard to look at the ruins. He goes, he looks, he leaves.
Do I have to just take all the fragments there and then send the wizard?
Oh, and yes, I am sure I had 20 (there are two counts in the upper right of the screen: village pop and armed pop or whatever, right?). I booted about 15 of them but still the game didn't give me credit. Then I just rebuilt my houses and got them back cuz I had jobs for them. ^_^
Hi, I'm in Kingdom 2 and for some reason I can only find one carrot to make the love potion. I went through everyone else's comments and doesn't seem like anyone has had this problem. Do carrots re-grow? Is it possible that I picked them up before and now there aren't any more? I've looked EVERYWHERE!!! Please help.
Actually, just spotted that Jillian had the same problem but didn't see any reply or solution for the missing carrots. Can someone help with this? Or I may have to re-start K2 from the beginning (yikes!)
By the way, I love the game and I think the Walkthrough is amazing!!!
Lori, your problem puzzles me-Did you get the wizard to remove all of the blue stones? I did everything before I got the population to 20 because I didn't want to feed a crowd early. Sorry I can't help more! Do you have an early save that you can try before you had the 20 people?
Some of the mystery seeds that the merchant sells are carrots. Its just chance which ones.
If I remember correctly, I just clicked on the wizard and he said something about enough magic would be in the old fragments of the tower.
thanks, daisy. will try that.
They do grow and will appear in certain places, so keep watch for them.
If you don't want wait and search, though, you can try this trick with the mystery seeds:
Pick up a mystery seed, walk over to where you want to plant it, then, before you drop the seed, save your game.
Re-enter from that save point, drop the seed.
If you don't get the plant you want, re-load from that save point, drop the seed. You can keep doing this until you get the plants you want.
20 Citizen Requirement for Rebuilding the Ancient Tower in K3
It is not necessarily a glitch that the 20 civilians is not checked off on your quest requirement list even though you have more than 20.
They don't check for that requirement until the very end of the quest, right before it's time to rebuild. This is most likely to avoid your getting credit for 20 civilians only to have them leave town due to homelessness, starvation, or joblessness.
I, too, had the villager/tower issue. I had to restart K3 and re-do the quest. I waited before picking anything up or dragging the wizard until the game told me to. I think the first time around I brought a brick over along with the big blocks and it glitched. The second time around I completed the tower quest, but it still tells me that I need 20 villagers. I am working on my last trophy and it still says that.
So, help on my last trophy. I am trying for the mighty king trophy and I have upgraded all of my soldiers, knights, villagers, but it still won't give it to me. Do you think it's because it's not recognizing the 20 villagers achievement? Or does everyone have to be scholar vs. level 4 craftsman, and knight captain vs. level 4 soldier?
JGood, I think you need Level 4 craftsman, Level 4 soldier, Level 3 archer, Level 3 knight as well as a scholar, a wizard, and level 4 peasant.
JGood... on the 20 villagers, do you mean it's not recognizing that you met the "at least 20 villagers" requirement of the quest when you rebuild the ancient tower in K3? Did it let you build the tower without them or have you been unable to finish the game?
The villagers achievement trophy is for 30 civilians.
i've finished the game & am just going back to finish all the quests that i haven't completed yet. in k1 i can't get the ale run quest. i cleared all the little piles of rubble & all that is left is 1 big, moss covered boulder and like 2 little rocks next to a flower that can't be mined. i don't think i cleared the rocks away before the quest was given, and i've tried clicking on the guy and dragging my hero to him. it still does not acknowledge that i've cleared away all the rock. am i missing something or is this likely just a glitch?
It might be a glitch... the walkthrough has screen shots and directions for each quest.
Your comments about dragging the hero made me realize that some people might not know about the right-click control in lieu of actually dragging (the tutorial never points it out).
You can click on any character under your control (blue circle), then right-click any object for them to pick up, any building or resource to work at, any enemy to fight, any other person to interact with....
I can't pull the sword out from Kingdom 1. I tried all characters, e.g.
- knight captain (it says only a king can pull the sword - but i can't move the king)
- level 4 craftsman
- level 4 peasant
- level 3 archers
I am in K1, and have two archers, yet I cannot kill the monstrous plant,at the boars forest to get the last peg, did I miss something, Please help!!
I have played this through twice, and both times, in K3, with the quest to build up my village to 20 peasants, I never get credit for this quest. I have 50 total people, 33 workers and 17 warriors.
Any ideas why the game is hanging up on this?
WeiLing, try any person wearing a crown that you picked up somewhere; I did it with the hero wearing a crown, and also with a level 4 craftsman not wearing a crown.
Aurelius, complete the rest of the steps for this quest before you get the 20 people; we think that it doesn't count them before then.
any archer should be able to kill the "audrey" plants.
I'm having a big problem finding all the stones for the ancient tower in kingdom 3. In your walkthrough it shows the screenshots for each stone but the site is broken and not showing the locations, I've read about where the places are and still can't find them, I'm just one short of having all 8 please someone help me so I can move on.
Did you get the one to the right of the dragon?
Yes daisyaday, The ones I'm looking for are the grey stones. Is there a way someone can get me a screenshot of the locations or give me more info on the locations.
I am in K3, and for some reason, I can't get more than 5 soldiers, no matter how many barracks I build. Is this a glitch? Am I going to have to start over? Or is there something that I am possibly missing?
Does anyone know where to buy tree seeds?
JGuest, update your lumberyard and then click on it; tree seeds should be there if you have it unlocked
MamaCowen, your total population is limited until you update the castle
mine the grey rocks at the following locations:
-on hillock west of ruins
-south of the dragon lair to the east
-just above the forgotten outpost to the south
-southwest of the ruins (with a total of 5 blocks in this location
Guys I have some kind of trouble ... I've finished the game but I'm working on the trophies but some trophies can't be achieved
1) The Trophy of (Mighty King) of Chess board
(it requires that I have all my characters at final level)
I have all of my soldiers at (knight Captain Level),All Archers in Level 3, a Wizard, Level 4 Craftsmen, Level 4 Peasants and a Hatched Dragon ... so what's the problem then ?????
2) The trophy of (Highness Bathrobe)
(it requires that I have all buildings in one kingdom )
I've built all the listed building in Kingdom 3 and no use :(
I actually completed these two but it doesn't tell me and they are still gray
In K3, I can't seem to get into the Black Knight compound. I've sent my hero, peasants, and craftsmen over to the pile of rubble (near door in bottom corner) but no luck; they all have a reason they can't do it. Any suggestions?
I am in K3 and cannot do the tower quest. When I try to build a quarry near the 3 stones in the soutwest of the ruins it won't let me. I have restarted K3 4 times now and the same problem. Any ideas?
Mido, Do you have a level 4 soldier(NOT a knight or archer) and a scholar?
Did you build a stone road?
I don't Have soldiers all are knight Captains
two Level 3 Archers and I have about 10 Scholars
Yes I have a stone road :)
Mido, You must get a level 4 soldier to get the trophy.
pejay, did you have the wizard remove the blue stones and remove the blight?
oh many thanks I've finished the game successfully now ... Yeah I had to own a level 4 soldier and there was a missing building (it was the bridge) :D
many thanks for your efforts the game is pretty cool ... I'm waiting for the new release :)
nightshade, the rubble is not on the wall with gate; its around the corner and down the alley near the scholar with all of the books
Mido, You are very welcome! I am glad that I could help.
I am in kingdom 3 and have lost the ability to build,use blight scrolls, or upgrade characters.When I click on a character all of those buttons are shaded gray. My hero is holding a stone block and I can't even get her to drop it. Does anyone know why this would be happening?
My wizard got killed by a giant! Can you get another one?
JGuest, as you probably alreeady know one version of this game is problematic; sounds like another glitch
beltarine, click on your wizard hut; you can buy another wizard
Okay Do you mean get rid of all of the blue stones or just the ones around the tower? I got rid of the blight, at least I finished that quest or is there something elsr I need to do with the blight? The only blue stone I have left is the one west of the castle.
The blight near the stones is preventing you from building a quarry; Have the wizard remove it. Click on the wizard hut and buy some blight scrolls, then click on the wizard and drag the scroll exactly where you wish to remove it.
Thank you so much daisyaday. I'm going to go try that right now.
i have run out of carrots to make carrot juice. can it grow from mystery seed? if so, where can i put the seed? thanks..
I was reading the walkthrough as I played the 1st kingdom and at the tower quest i picked up 1 of the pieces of the drawbridge and put it on top of the drawbridge and now i'm to the drawbridge quest and I put all of the other pieces down and they locked in place just like the first one, but it says i only have 2 of 3! any help is vry useful thx!
oh, never mind, i figured it out!
I almost finished the game ... but there's one trophy I can't achieve ... it's the (hatch Dragon) Trophy ... I already built the dragon hatcher and employ a scholar and add an egg to the hatcher (there are two spare eggs too) ... but it's been ages and the dragon didn't appear yet ... so please anyone tell me how does it take to hatch a dragon ?
How long does it take to hatch a dragon? I have the eggs for few days already ...
Mido and WeiLing ,
You must have your scholar tend the dragon egg, never takes more than a few minutes
Actually, fire your scholar from wherever he is employed and employ him at the hatchery; sorry-just remembered that
I've 10 Scholars and I've tried to fire each one and employ him/her to the hatcher for 10 minutes each
and the dragon doesn't want to come up :(
am stuck on K2, have collected all the ingredients for the pie thats supposed to make the dragon sleep but when i've gone back to talk to a baker nothing happens. Can anyone help me please?
@Daisyaday and Weiling
I've found the solution for the long time needed to hatch a dragon ... all what you need is to built the hatcher at wide area near to the river(no building around the hatcher) when I did that it took just 50 seconds to be hatched
another notes: employ a scholar at empty hatcher (it will say that you need a dragon egg) then use the same scholar which you will employ to carry the egg and right click on the hatcher it will put it there then employ him/her to the hatcher ... Please anyone add this to the walkthrough :)
I have already employed a scholar at the hatchery. Still doesn't work. Maybe a step by step instruction? from carry eggs?
Weiling, I had the hero take the egg to the nest(hatchery) and drop it. Then I employed the scholar who put the egg in the nest and went back and forth for a short while until the dragon hatched. It could be yet another glitch;sorry! My hatchery was behind the castle with nothing beside it. A library was in front of it.
Ellie, I think the baker just told me the pie was ready as soon as I got the ingredients; did you click on the baker? I didn't go to the bakery until I went to pick up the pie.
How do I rotate the bridge.
I mist it when it flashed on the screen.
can anyone please tell me how to get into the dragon's lair in the north east corner of K2 please?
can't get past the gates and can see the dragon scales i need on the other side.
there is a little icon in the middle lower section of the screen when you click on the bridge; it shows a curving arrow with a bridge inside; click on it to rotate the bridge
I'm in K2 and trying to get the last tiara up on the ridge behind the Knights Gate. It's tiara #10 I think in the walkthrough above. I have most of the quests done and could leave to K3 but I want to get that last tiara, finish the love potion and get the 2 Dragon Scales, behind that door I'm guessing, to move on. If there is a key where is it? Thanks for any help as the walkthrough so far is excellant.
Great. The dragon hatchery tips to build it near the wide river works. My remaining challenge is to grow combats to 30. I cannot go beyond 20 ...
Anyone still experiencing glitches can uninstall the game and download the latest update. You might need to re-enter your purchase code, so have that handy. Saved game files won't be lost (or shouldn't be). I purchased my game directly from the Sandlot site when it first came out, but I believe Big Fish works the same way.
WeiLing ; Try upgrading the castle; the game limits the number of people until you do
I got the game through my unlimited membership at shockwave, so I can't update it until they do; they say they are working on it
i'm stuck in kingdom 1 at the drawbridge. i brought all three of the wall peices to the scholar at the bridge but the treasure chest won't appear at the library ruins. what else am i missing???
I cannot seem to find a key to enter the knights gate in K2. I've chopped all the trees, i've sent everyone in my village to the gate and i've mined all the stone and gold around it. I've finished all the outside quests and I still cannot open it. Please help!
heidi , are you sure that you are at the correct library ruins? I kept trying the ruins in front of the drawbridge, and it was not the correct ruins- its near the boar forest
I don't have a scroll wheel, and the arrows only move the screen around. How do I zoom with a touchpad?
[Swiping the touchpad with 2 fingers should scroll. -Jay]
Thanks Jay, you are fast!
The two-finger zoom works on my lappy at work, but my home one doesn't have that feature (2007s are archaic now!) The in-game instructions say to use wheel/arrows (which doesn't work of course)...so there is no other way to zoom? No button in-game that I am not seeing? It would make it so much more playable!
Thanks thanks thanks
[Sorry, I'm out of ideas besides investing in a cheap mouse with a scroll wheel for situations like this. I don't understand why your arrow keys won't work. -Jay]
First off THANKS! I would have lost my mind without this wonderful walkthrough.
I have finished everything including Storming the tower and went back to clean up those unrequired quests. One that is stumping me is near the compound where you find your caged prisoners in K3 is an area with someone and load of books to pick up. For the life of me I can not figure out how to get into this area or trigger a quest that would let me. Ive been over the walkthrough a hundred times and dont see any mention of it either. Anyone have any advice?
I'm stuck on the Fight the Blight quest. How do I get more frogs to appear? I killed the 3 that are near the giants but more frogs aren't reappearing and I need to collect 5. Are there frogs anywhere else?
The dark alchemist can be reached by clicking on him a bunch of times... a click counts when you click on him, then somewhere else on the map.... until he gets so annoyed he leaves and the gate is left open.
By the way, did I already mention it takes a LOT of clicking?
It takes a lot.
You get a lot of goodies but as far as I could tell, there wasn't a trophy for that.
In all the kingdoms, frogs will spawn in a particular area -in the water-. Sometimes they're hard to spot when they're in the water, though... look all through the east end of the river in K3. They're in there.
In K3, I am stuck in storming the tower. I can't ge the catapult to work when I place a soldier near it.
For everyone that is stuck on picking carrots for love potion and dragon scales... Heres the tip:
1. Just pick out all the berry bushes and pumpkins ... keep picking them out until the carrots appear. In my case, immediately after i picked out all the berries and pumpkins carrots appeared and i finished my love potion.
2. Dragon scales... dont look for dragon scales early on in the game, cuz u wont be able to find it. Its in the locked area where there is an egg kept. The scales look like a flat honeycomb greenish in color. Once u finish the love potion, the knight will give u the key to that locked area and u will be able to get dragon scales. Only pick up the scales if there is a quest triggered. (If the merchant has asked you to get two dragon scales).
I have a question about the Hatchery. Please tell me on how to trigger that quest and how to finish it.
Nice, this walkthrough ;-)
I'm at Kingdom 1 and need the last marble. It is on an island across a wide river on the West side. I can nog place a wooden bridge, to small. I think I have to go there through the water, but can anyone help me with getting rid of the stone that is blocking the way up the streem?
Leintje - you need to move on to Kingdom 2 and start working the quests, sometimes you have to move back and forth but once you have opened your mansonry you can build stone bridges, then its time to come back and get the marble. Good luck
On another note I am so glad this finally opened. Started playing before this was up and have been struggling through when I hit a problem with another site and although it had some general helps a couple of times I was unable to solve the quest, I was thrilled to see this up and running Thank you Thank you Thank you.
Finally Finished the game and all secrets, Mystery buildings/crops and trophies.....BUT BUT BUT...Due a Stupid Glitch i cudnt get credit for finishing "Find the Blackknight Stronghold and free the villagers" quest. I tried to complete that quest like three times before i moved on.. Did everything right, but i guess my game has a bug, and no matter what it dosent give me credit for finishing it. This is a great game, except for that one glitch which spoiled it for me. I loved this game and hope they come out with more only without bugs this time plssss.....
You are offered the dragon egg hatchery when...
You have at least 4 scholars working in your kingdom... or maybe it is four libraries... my memory is a bit rusty. Actually, I remember now that it is four libraries.
If you have saved games, go back to before you explored the outpost in Kingdom 3. Be very careful in how you collect the clues... not until the King tells you to go on should you go on. Then, when you storm the black knight stronghold, make sure that your hero does not die...
You won't get credit until you are able to rescue the captured civilians from the outpost.
I had same trouble but luckily did not have to start over... only had to go back to the save point from before collecting clues in the outpost.
thanks for the advice but i already did that 4 times now... Infact i had saved the game at three different points from the Very beginning. saved just when i had to go to outpost, saved after i find the scroll, and saved when i found the duke early in the game, its my habit since i am an avid westward player and know how westward always has crashes. I tried to finish my quest 4 times now. Infact after i finished my whole game, i still went back to that save and tried finishing the quest, but the cages just dont light up, As the quest dosent check for "Find the Blacknight stronghold" Because of this The bard too never came to my kingdom. Otherwise all the quest are done in all of the kingdoms.
And bout the dragons, i figured that out in K2 itself, and hatched two dragons there, And 10 dragons in K3. Thts why the Defeat the wizard quest was a piece of cake for me, i had 10 dragons, 9 mounted knights, 3 2nd level knights, 4 wizards, 5 archers, and 2 soldiers in that quest. But thanks for all ur help tho. if u need any help or anyone here does just ask.
That sounds so frustrating. Okay, I have one more idea to throw out: do you have the most recent download? If you bought the game from big fish or sandlot, this will be easy... just uninstall the game (but not the saved games files) and re-download the newest version of the game. On the sandlot forums, there is a thread explaining the latest builds and what glitches were fixed. Maybe that will work.
I loved this newest WW game... but I was also frustrated with several glitches. It's not going to stop me from immediately purchasing and playing the next one which I hope is in the works. So far I've found no other game like Westward and I'm picky about the types of games that I like.
Does anyone know how to open the giants pen door? I've already helped the 1 giant with his shoes but i cant seem to figure out how to open the giants pen to get my last peg.
