Can you believe there are still characters to rescue from the Gloom in CastleVille? Crazy, we know. As it turns out, George the Miner is still lost in the frigid north, and the Duke needs you to help find him. This is one long an arduous quest, packing a whopping 16 Goals in total (and tons of rewards, too).
But with this handy guide, you should be able to bring George back into your kingdom in no time. Well, Energy reserves permitting, of course. (Note: This guide assumes you have already explored the region on the game map that contains a bridge. Do not follow this guide until you've done so!)
Visit 3 Neighbors
Collect taxes from 10 Houses
Tend 10 Flowers
The first two marks of this Goal are self-explanatory. The cheapest Flowers available in the Market are Dandelions for 100 Gold. You'll receive 500 Coins and 10 XP for completing this quest.
High and Low
Own a Guard Tower
Tend a Guard Tower 2 times
Collect 5 Spyglasses
The Guard Tower costs a hefty 3,000 Coins in the Market, but will eventually pay for itself with its 550 Coins per tend. The five Spyglasses come from News Feed posts that you can push out from within the Quest window. You'll score another 500 Coins and 10 XP for completing this task.
Prepping for the Cold
Craft 5 Ropes
Collect 5 Wool
Collect 4 Snow Shoes
To craft five Ropes, make sure you own five Flax and a Workshop to make it happen. The five Wool comes from adult Sheep, which cost 1,000 Coins in the Market. The four Snow Shoes come from posting News Feeds through the quest window. Your reward for this quest is a much nicer 1,000 Coins, 20 XP and two Icy Torches.
Explore the bridge expansion area
Defeat the Gloom Yeti
Now, you must explore past the bridge area pictured above. Remember, if you have yet to expand to this region, your quests will be slightly different (and take far longer) up until this point. After pummeling the Gloom Yeti, you'll score 750 Coins and 15 XP.
Box a Practice Dummy 5 times
Chop a Tree 10 times
Collect 10 Eggs
Unfortunately, you will need to pay up for the Practice Dummy, if you've yet to complete the Purple Drink quest. The 10 Eggs come from tending Adult Chickens, which cost 250 Coins on the Market. Enjoy 500 Coins and 10 XP for this task.
A Little Love
Tend 10 Animals in neighbors' Kingdoms
Gather 20 Reputation
These two tasks basically go hand-in-hand, so don't sweat it. However, make sure you're not at your limit of 100 Reputation before attempting this quest, as you will not receive credit for the Reputation gathered otherwise. A sweet 750 Coins and 15 XP await you for this quest.
Crafting for Success
Craft 3 Hammers
Have 5 Dragon Scales
Have 3 Rat Tails
To craft the Hammers, you will need to have the Blacksmith support building for your Workshop. The Dragon Scales come from News Feed posts, while the Rat Tails come from banishing Gloom Rats, which can be summoned using the Gloom Rat Potion (also crafted). Enjoy 1,000 Coins, 20 XP and one Fiery Hammer for completing this quest.
Not So Tough
Banish the Gloom Yeti
Explore the area with George in it
The Fiery Hammer will automatically be used when attempting to banish this next Gloom Yeti. For completing this simple quest, you'll earn another 750 Coins and 15 XP.
Checking Him Out
Check on George
Collect 8 Wool
Have 6 Wood Logs
Again, Wool comes from tending to Adult Sheep, and the Wood Logs come from either your Lumber Mill or chopping trees directly. This quest will reward you with a measly 500 Coins and 10 XP.
Dealing With Distractions
Collect 10 Pails of Water
Have 15 Berries
Have 5 Snowy Treat Cones
The 10 Pails of Water are found while fishing in your kingdom's pond, while the Berries are found tending to Grass and Mushrooms. The Snowy Treat Cones are found through more News Feed posts. Enjoy the 500 Coins, 10 XP and Snowy Treat Stand as a reward.
Have 5 Chicken Meat
Harvest 15 Tomatoes
Craft 1 Bowl of Tomato Bisque
The Chicken Meat comes from tending to Adult Chickens, while Tomatoes cost 150 Coins apiece and take eight hours to grow. The Bowl of Tomato Bisque requires a Kitchen to be made, and takes 20 Tomatoes, 10 Milk Bottles and three Sticks of Butter. After another eight hours, you'll score 500 Coins and 10 XP.
Break The Ice
Click on George 5 times
Cook 3 Hard Boiled Eggs
Have 5 Rolling Pins
Hard Boiled Eggs also require the Kitchen, and call for 10 Eggs, found while tending Chickens, and five Pails of Water found while fishing. The five Rolling Pins will require you to publish more News Feeds. You'll earn another 500 Coins and 10 XP for this quest.
The Second Date
Have 5 Ice Chunks
Craft an Ice Pick
Use the Ice Pick to break through the ice on George's Miner's Pick
Ice Chunks come most commonly from banishing Gloom Yetis, and the Ice Pick is crafted in the Workshop. (We imagine it, too, requires the Blacksmith.) Once you break out George's Miner's Pick, you will receive, yes, 500 Coins and 10 XP.
Hit George's icy prison 10 times
Have 5 Books
To find the five Books, you will have to publish even more News Feeds through the quest window. For this simple task, enjoy yet another 500 Coins and 10 XP.
Escape Out the Back
Banish the Gloom Yeti
Simple enough, right. And a simple enough reward: The exact same as before.
Have 5 Rope
Build George's Viking Mine
Collect once from the Viking Mine
To craft more Rope, you'll need 5 more Flax and a Workshop. George's Viking Mine will become available once you receive this quest, and we imagine it will require some friends to staff it. If not, lucky us! Your final reward for this almost unbearably long quests series is ... another 500 Coins and 10 XP.
