CastleVille Forging Ahead Quests: Everything you need to know

Brandy Shaul


Another new character has come to CastleVille this week: Ulrich, a master blacksmith who was famous for his forging abilities before the Gloom came. He's heard of your efforts to fight the Gloom and wants to offer his talents. Along with his appearance in your kingdom comes a series of 10 new quests, and the introduction of Workshop mastery to your game. Similar to Cooking mastery, Workshop mastery will allow you to craft recipes more easily than before. Here's a complete guide to finishing these Forging Ahead quests!

Tall, Dark and Fearsome

  • Collect 3 Stone

  • Have 10 Walls


It doesn't matter which kinds of walls you have, so you'll likely have that step completing automatically. It also doesn't matter how you earn the stone, so long as you earn three additional stone on top of what you currently have in your inventory. For finishing this quest, you'll receive 500 coins and 10 XP.

Dirty Deeds

  • Have 3 Scrub Brushes

  • Have 5 Pails of Water

  • Gather Materials 6 Times
