Wow! It seems like only yesterday we were frolicking about, welcoming character after character until our eyes popped out of our heads. Oh, my producer is now telling me that it actually was yesterday that all of that happened. Though she could be wrong. My producer is my dog. Aw well, today we have yet another character to welcome and this one is wound up as tight as me when my mother comes to visit. Cogsworth proves to be quite easy if you have Mrs. Potts and got a head start on the Roses yesterday, and perhaps a bit of a challenge if you didn’t do these things. Let’s take a look!
These will be needed for every Beauty and the Beast character and require you to collect ropes and bags, then use them on the vine cages roaming about the Kingdom. A good rule of thumb is just to consistently be working on these and save them up as every character will require more and more of them.
Hands down, the best way to collect these is Mrs. Potts, who dropped one ALMOST every single time she completed the quest. Friend Coming Over is the least promising way as it requires Mickey and Goofy who are better used to collect ropes and bags for the vine cages.
Cogsworth Ears Hats
All of the ears for these characters so far are quite odd. Yet somehow Cogsworth’s ears look like a clock I would actually want in my house. Don’t judge me! Anyway, you’re looking at 4 hour quests here unless you have Mrs. Potts who will gladly collect them every two hours for you!
Say Hello to Cogsworth
After collecting all the necessary tokens and a six hour welcome timer (yes, I gemmed through it JUST for this picture) you’ll welcome the most adorable time piece you ever did see to your Kingdom. It might not be hammer time, but it’s still pretty exciting!
Questing with Cogsworth
Cogsworth is naturally worried to find that his master is back to his old furry self again. That’s what happens when you participate in No Shave November I suppose.
But as we know, this is a Beast who has already learned his lesson. He’s not looking to hurt anyone, he just wants to throw a big party! One might say he’s become quite the party animal. Although, he wants to throw a ball, so does that make him a Ball Bear? Hmm, deep questions indeed. Where were we?
Choose the Right Quest!
As has happened in the past, two quests will pop up for Cogsworth. The first of these is a non-timed quest. This means that it will not progress the main story and will cost you four hours if you aren’t careful. The quest to skip is called “Send Cogsworth to Finalize the Schedule. You can do it later when you aren’t feeling so time strapped. It will start out with Cogsworth being a micro-manager for the Beast.
It turns out that seeing a clock every time you look in the mirror can make you a bit obsessive compulsive when it comes to scheduling.
When you see this quest, hit the X and then take the next quest from Cogsworth. You’ll notice that this quest goes onto your Quest chain at the left as a yellow quest. This means that it won’t progress the main story. What we want are Blue quests!
Cogsworth is quite happy to be rid of his plucky friend when it comes to making sure everything goes right.
This is the quest you’ll want to take if you’re looking to get through the story of the timed event as fast as possible. It’s a two hour quest and it will set you on the right path. In the meantime, continue collecting items to level up Beast and Cogsworth.
Today begins the first mini event within the Be Our Guest Main Event! Collect happiness from completing wishes in order to earn much needed ropes, bags and rose crest event currency! The event will run for 2 days so make sure to put a little extra focus on granting wishes during that time!
We also got a new promo. Unless you’re really strapped for event currency or gems I would probably pass on this one. These promos seem to get more worthwhile as the event progresses, offering more and more event currency so just hold off for now.
The Story Continues
Meanwhile, Mickey and Goofy are still fighting back the curse with music, because apparently no one told them how much more effective an exorcism is.
I really hope this ends with EVERY character performing a song, or maybe then can all have a flash mob! That would be the best.
Make sure Goofy is available so you can send him to put up signs to invite everyone to the musical show!
And that’s where I leave you! Lumiere will be available in two days so make sure to stay on top of the game and you’ll be ready for sure. Someone asked in the comments if it is possible to complete these events without purchasing the gem characters. The answer is absolutely! Gem characters make things easier but they are not necessary. You simply have to make sure to check in on the game often and you can do it! I believe in you!! Let me know how you’re all doing with this huge host of new characters in the comments. And also, how do we feel about Vine Cages? Better than Snogies? Worse? You tell me!
