So far this event has been fast and furious with how many characters we’ve gotten in a very short amount of time. Today opens the last character for a few days and he’s certainly one that will take some serious time to welcome given his tokens take several hours to drop unless you’ve got Mrs. Potts and she can’t get ALL your tokens for you. She’s only one pot!!! But perhaps there is hope for welcoming him after all. Perhaps we can do it together. Perhaps the Beast needs a candle to burn down the library because he’s tired of me making him read books. Let’s find out together.
Just like the other Beauty and the Beast characters, you’ll need to use rope and bags to fight vine cages which will drop roses. The good news is that as more characters are welcomed through this event, the easier it becomes to get these roses as you have more characters who can collect the items for them and then do the final vine cage quest.
An uncommon item, Matchsticks should come quite easily. Unfortunately, the quests for them can range on the longer side, unless of course you have Mrs. Potts, who can nab these up in two hours. She drops them almost always.
Lumiere Ears Hats
This is definitely the trouble maker of this group. A rare item, the hats will drop, well, rarely. The one saving grace is that Buzz, Beast, Cogsworth AND Mrs. Potts all have 2 hours quests for them, so you should be able to round them up pretty fast, despite the low drop rate.
Say Hello to Lumiere
Keep searching for that lucky flame, and sooner or later you’ll welcome Lumiere to your Kingdom. I’m happy to say that the devs were right on this one, he has some of the best animations in the game.
Lumiere is super excited to join the Kingdom and help with the festivities. Cogsworth is about as excited as I am when I wake up to find a pimple on my face. Sooo, not that excited.
This will prompt a quest for Jessie, who is really begging for attention and seeking any reason to yodel so everyone will look at her. She’s sort of the Kim Kardashian of Disney Magic Kingdoms. Fun fact, I don’t know if that reference works. Also, up until a couple years ago, I thought a Kardashian was an alien race from Star Trek. Sorry, where were we? Oh right, Jessie was yodeling…again.
Choose the Right Quest
Once again you’ll be given two quests. The first of which is a non-time sensitive quest. It won’t move the story along and if you’re trying to get through the event, I advise skipping this one and doing it later. It’ll start out like this.
You’ll want to hit the X on this quest and take the next one. That’s the one that will move the story along so you can get to the good stuff and build Belle’s House sooner rather than later.
The next quest you take is the important one to the story. You’ll want to make sure that Cogsworth is also free as this will be a two person job. Lumiere leads the quest by being, well, overly dramatic.
That’s great Cogsworth. Everyone wants a party that’s SEDATE. Why, I put that on all my invitations. Dress: Casual. Mood: Sedated. Food: Chamomille tea and lavender biscuits, to help with aforementioned sedation.
This quest will require both Lumiere and Cogsworth and will last 4 hours.
Essentially, the two of them will slap each other for four hours and you will enjoy every minute of it because, honestly, it’s the most adorable thing ever. It’s like watching kittens fight. SO CUTE!
Gaston’s First Appearance
At long last, the barge-sized hunter himself will rear his ugly head.
Something we’d wondered for a while was how it could be explained that Gaston was back. Apparently he’s recovering…from being dead. What are you, Wolverine? Maybe this is like IZombie and he is a zombie but knows how to fit in. Maybe he works part time at the Haunted Mansion, eating brains and such.
Oh, I see you’re suddenly interested in Belle’s BRAIN! Perhaps you’d like to see how it tastes with SALT!!! I’m on to you Gaston! Or should I say, GASTOMBIE!!!
Gaston comes up with an excellent plan to go to Belle’s house to persuade her, which sounds super sketchy. It occurs to me that by simply not building her home I could prevent horrible things from happening. Unfortunately for Bell, I can’t help but build new things!
Building Belle’s House
You’ll get the quest to Build Belle’s House, but you’ll need to have Lumiere at level 2 to make it happen, so get to collecting items ASAP.
Belle’s House will cost 9,000 heart crests and will take 6 hours to build. Luckily it is not a huge attraction and managed to fit into my Kingdom surprisingly well.
Cursed Cutlery Round Two
After this, Merlin will let you know it’s time to fight the cursed dinnerware once more. This time you’ll be hunting 40 of them, 10 at a time, with 5 minute intervals in between.
I wanted to take a moment to mention the Birthday Gifts that have been popping up every day. I’ll be talking more about this on the 17th, when the birthday happens, but this also marks a year of blogging about this game so it feels extra amazing to see how far this little game has come. If you are having trouble receiving the gifts, be sure to check that your game is online. Instructions on how to do this can be found on the DMK facebook page.
The Story Continues
We’ve got a week to Belle and Chip, plenty of birthday goodies on the way and a 1 year anniversary just around the corner. It’s going to be a busy week! What do you think some of the other gifts will be? Let me know in the comments!
