Welcome wonderful Wizards, Witches (with & without worts), Warlocks, Wiccans, & Werewolves!
(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “W”)
Hope you’re ready to trick or treat because the THOH XXVIII Halloween Event has arrived in Springfield! And boy do I have some TRICKS to help TREAT you to a big jump in the Event! One key aspect introduced in the Halloween Event is Beast Enchanters.
NOTE: While this post included info/speculation about Act 2 and Act 3, we’ll focus on Act 1 and have separate posts for Act 2 and Act 3….
So in this event, similar to a few events in the past (TapBall, Superheroes, Homerpalooza come to mind), you’ll be tasked with sending characters on a secondary task. In this case it’s Beast Enchanter.
From the Event Hub or in the top right of your screen, click on the Beast Tamer icon to send characters to Beast Enchanter.
Beast Enchanter Beasts:
Beast Enchanters are conducted against various beasts in each Act. In Act 1, Beast Enchanters are conducted against Kearneymom, Wiggops, Lewd, and Treestache.
Up to 4 characters can capture, enchant each beast and you receive 50 event currency (Wands in Act 1) per character you send.
Beast Enchanter Characters:
Various characters can Beast Enchant (battle against a beast) to earn more event currency and to capture the beasts.
In Act 1, characters that can enchant include:
- Wizard Lisa
- Wizard Bart
- Magic Act Milhouse
- Wizard Martin
- Angelica Button
- Unicorn Wizard
NOTE: Act 2 and Act 3 characters will be discussed in the Act 2 and Act 3 continuations of this post.
Initially, all beasts have the status of “wild”. You have to continuously send your characters to capture the beasts. Once the beasts have been captured and have the status “captured”, you have to continuously send your characters to enchant the beasts. Once the beasts have been enchanted and have the status “enchanted”, you’ll have the opportunity to release them.
NOTE: Another post will discuss what happens once you release the beasts.
Mana is the life essence of the beasts. They have two types of mana. Wild beasts have dark mana while captured beasts have light mana.
The more frequently you send characters to capture wild beasts, the sooner their status changes to captured. Each wild beast starts with 15 dark mana . When characters are sent to capture a beast, they inflict either 0.5 dark mana (), 1 dark mana (), or 1.5 dark mana ( ) damage. Once the wild beast loses all 15 dark mana, they are fully captured.
Likewise, the more frequently you send characters to enchant captured beasts, the sooner their status changes to enchanted. Each enchanted beast starts with 0 light mana . When characters are sent to enchant a captured beast, they instill either 0.5 light mana (), 1 light mana (), or 1.5 light mana ( ) towards the beast. Once the beast fills all 15 light mana, they are fully enchanted.
Each character deals a fixed amount of damage: (NOTE: Act 2 and Act 3 characters have been removed and will be shown in the subsequent posts!)
|0.5 Mana||Wizard Lisa, Wizard Bart, Magic Act Milhouse, Unicorn Wizard|
|1 Mana||Wizard Martin, Angelica Button|
|1.5 Mana||No one in Act 1|
As shown above, Act 1 freemium characters deal or instill 0.5 dark or light mana. Act 1 premium characters deal or instill 1 full dark or light mana.
And that’s it my friends. A quick intro into capturing and enchanting beasts in preparation for releasing them….
What are your thoughts on Beast Enchanter? Have you captured any beasts yet? Have you enchanted any beasts yet? Looking forward to the post on releasing beasts? Have any tips or tricks you can share for Act 1 only? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
How do I open other doors to allow multiple characters to enchant a monster at the same time?
They are open if available…
So when do they become available? It seems weird that I have characters available to work with others in either capturing, battle or enchanting but the doors are not open to do so. I have seen other players when going to other workds having multiple players invoked in a single task for a monster.
You don’t need the door to open. As mentioned in a few posts, you can send 4 characters even if the door looks closed. Just keep selecting characters.
I can’t use the other doors either. When I choose who to send it immediately goes to the “fight” and I can’t choose anymore. I’m also seeing friends games where there is more than one character fighting.
Check out this post.
I just purchased threestaches grove and now I can’t see my event-o-meter. The fairy dust icon on the bottom doesn’t work anymore and I can’t see how far along I am on my buildables. I also cannot capture/enchant treestache…. is this something that others have experienced? How can I resolve this glitch so I can continue the THOH 2017 event? Help!?
For days iv been trying to figure out how to release kearnymon, he seems to be in a perpetual 4 hour frozen captured state. In the beast list it says I can release him to unlock other decorations so I press GO and he’s there, all stuck in a 4 hour loop that never counts down
I seem to have run out of enchanter jobs yet I’m still being told I’m at 4/8. Without having to purchase treestache, what am I supposed to do to continue?
I have two questions: is it better to buy Treestache and have a 4th beast or have Martin’s skin, I am a freemium player. I have enchanted 2 beasts already and I don’t think I will have the time to enchant the 3rd beast before Act 2, is it possible to do so later, if so I’d buy Martin’s skin. Please help Thnkx
You can continue to capture and enchant in Act 2 and 3. Tough call between Wizard Martin and Treestache. I prefer Wizard Martin and he will help Capture and Enchant all the beasts faster. But I also like having lots of Beasts to Capture and Enchant.
Ok I will buy Martin’s skin and save donuts from the railroad and Maggie to get meeore beasts. Thank you
Do particular characters work with the specific beasts as i send 3 and only 1 registers that they’ve worked. Thank you
No, that is quite odd. You should be able to capture or enchant 1 mana each for Angelica Button and Wizard Martin, and 0.5 mana each for Wizard Lisa, Wizard Bart, and Wizard Unicorn.
So if you’re sending Wizard Lisa, Wizard Bart, and Wizard Unicorn to capture any beast and they have 6.5 mana, they should have 1.5 mana captured and be at 5 mana after the 4 hours, regardless of the beast.
Why does it show wizard Martin but not allow me to use him?
Did you purchase the Wizard Martin skin? Regular Martin can’t do it.
Should I buy Treestash? Anyone know what decorations he unlocks?
He unlocks trees, shrubs, and occasionally an island.
If you also think unicorn wizard should do 1.5 instead of 0.5 like this comment.
While visiting a neighbor I grew quite jealous. I have zombie envy. Would you please tell us how to turn our Springfielders into zombies. Thank you for your amazing blog. Happy Halloween🎃
Currently available in the mystery box
Is the mystery box the only way to get the zombie sandwich? I really want it, but I don’t have very many doughnuts. I made one mystery box purchase and ended up with Bob’s Victorian house. How can I just get the zombie sandwich?
Unfortunately unraveling the mystery of what your next Mystery Box contains via a donut purchase is your only option for now.
I just bought treestache and wanted to fight him but it seems he vanished from the beast List? Do i have to finish his questline First?
Can someone help me?
I unlocked all the doors and I own Martin, but he won’t show up with all the magic characters. What should I do?
Do you have the wizard skin for Martin? It’s Wizard Martin who can do the event stuff, not plain old Martin.
Slow going but fun should be finished enchanting kearniemon, hope more character to fight beasts to speed things up a bit in act 2, I have wizard martin which helps
I have 4 beasts. Should I capture all of them before I enchant any of them? Is there a particular order?
Capture & Enchant Kearnymon first – this finishes the Act 1 Questline & allows you to begin accumulating extra Wands towards Bonuts while you work on the Prize Track.
Best strategy after that seems to be to Capture then Enchant each Beast one by one; this is because once you C&E a Beast, it can be “released” to earn Wands on its own while the Wizards move on to the next Beast, and so increase Wands earned towards the Questline & Bonuts. hth!
Lots of great comments, very informative. Does anyone know if Witch Marge will be available in this event, I missed out on her the last time around. Been growing actual corn and I understand that she has ability to speed up crops.
Seriously, how do you open the other doors to capture Kearneymon? I’ve been sending the 1 kid to fight him for days and it’s taking forever.
I have been focusing on one at a time. I capture them all first. Then enchant them. In think splitting up the wizards will be slow going. j/s
How do u open the other 3 doors?
They are open just click on the other characters as they are still blue ready to play
Thanks guys, didn’t get that all the doors are actually open. Kept sending just one kid every time until today.
How dud you do it? I cannot send more than 1 kid at a time?
Make sure you hit the blue Select button for all of the kids you want to send before you hit the Capture button. Once one kid is busy capturing a beast, you cannot add more kids. Similar to the stages, where once you started playing on a stage you couldn’t add more partway through the 4 hours.
Is it best to send Bart and Lisa to capture beasts or to finish their quest line first?
I didn’t know you could open the other doors. This is why I come here. Thanks Addicts!
I must have missed it in the article and still don’t see it, how do you open the doors?
I have –
Magic Act Milhouse
So that’s 2 Characters taking on –
Unless I get 2 more Characters to Wizard? There’s no reason to obtain Wiggops, or Treestache (but this post was very handy, thank you Safi)
That’s true for now but soon you will have captured Kearneymon and Lewd and will then enchant them. They will then earn wands every 4 hours no matter what the children do. Given that the children will then be idle, one way to increase your wand pay out is to get Wiggops and Treestache. Unlike some of the other events, this one seems like you might actually slow down your wand gathering in the second half of the first act unless you buy the premium monsters unless I’m missing something.
All then beasts are really cool looking
I feel like I’m missing something. Who or what is the unicorn wizard?
Wow. I am slow.
It’s annoying having 4 beasts to capture enchant and release, but only 5 kids to do so…
THANK YOU SAFI😊. Seriously, what would I do without you guys? I had Button doing her quest line because she was ‘spare’ as I could only send one kid per door😂😂😂😂. I was doing fine with the prize list and couldn’t work out why some of my beasts were clearing faster than others. So now I’ve done like Hermoine, waved my magic wand and….erratum disappearum! I’m back on track. Addict’s Team you rock😎……💜X
I had no idea the other “doors” opened until I read this post!!! I had only been sending one wizard at a time to catch them monsters! THANK YOU!!!
Did anyone else lose money after the update to the Halloween game? Lost $10,000,000 Dollars??? What the heck!
Sounds like you sent Cecil on building the Dam.
I was wondering about that myself I usually like to keep $10m in bank for “emergencies” and noticed I was at just over $8m last night thought I’d just gone a bit made on land purchase but now I see your post I would agree I’ve proba lost about $10m. ☹️
Is there a point in enchanting them?
Yes, there is a point. Once they are enchanted, you can release them. But that will be discussed in a future post.
Is it just me, or is anyone else semi-regularly getting kicked out of their EA account (thus getting signed out of TSTO) and then it doesn’t recognize your password and you have to do a full password reset?
This has happened 3 times in last 6 months to me.
Used to happen to me on my old iPhone 5C a lot. Usually when I was low on storage space. Since I got my iPhone 6S Plus, I don’t think it’s happened once.
Just noticed the comment about full password reset. I never had to do that.
I just had to constantly re-sign into Origin.
Yes I’ve had it a couple of times. I usually have had an email from EA saying I requested a password reset before I’ve tried to log into my game. Sometimes wondered if someone was trying to hack my game.
Yes, I had to call EA and my account was hacked by someone the rep assumed was Russian. I had closed the email account associated with it so I had to prove it was my game and then they gave me access again.
The advice I got: Sign into EA on your computer, go to the Origin side, make a killer password and set it to verify things by texting you, and make 3 security questions instead of the one that they start with.
How can you play on the computer? When i try in the past it send me to download the app with connects to the phone.
Not sign into TSTO via computer, but into EA.com 😊
