CONSOLE: Pop Goes The Weasel

Round and round the mulberry bush…

New Troop: Princess Fizzbang

Blessed with magical powers at birth, Princess Fizzbang teleported from her mother’s womb with a strange magical “zzapp!”, causing the midwives to give her the name “Fizzbang”. Her mother, Queen Grapplepot, approved of the name, possibly due to the joy she felt at having a labor that lasted approximately 0.37 seconds.
It soon became apparent that the Princess was not only blessed with the magical ability to blow things up, but also a childlike curiosity piqued by watching beautiful things explode into thousands of shiny pieces.

Unfortunately, for the royal family, she fell into the habit of using whatever (or whomever) was at hand for her experiments. By the time she turned 12 (coming of age for Goblins) she had racked up a tally of 4 brothers, 28 servants, 32 roast boars, a priceless crystal goblet, some jewellery stolen from Queen Ysabelle, the emissary from Adana, her father’s left ear, a passing Knight Coronet, and an undisclosed (but undoubtedly impressive) number of the the local cat population.

New Troop: Queen Grapplepot

Queen Grapplepot’s motto has always been: “When the only tool you have is a large wooden spoon, every problem looks like food.”

The first group of Goblins to tell her that phrase was too long to put on the royal banner went into her pot for that night’s casserole.
The second group of Goblins tried to extend the banner to make the phrase fit, but when Grapplepot caught them… casserole.
The third group of Goblins tried some VERY tiny embroidery, and almost got it right, but unfortunately misspelled the Goblin word for “Wooden Spoon” - Schmacka - as “Khlacka” which means “butt”… leaving the phrase saying “When the only tool you have is a large BUTT, every problem looks like food.” Yep - casserole for them too.

The final group of Goblins tried shortening the phrase to “Eat your problems away!” Queen Grapplepot approved, threw them in the pot too, but at least they ended their days baked into a celebratory cake.

Please note this Event is exclusive to the XBox One and Playstation 4 versions of the game.

Double first

Doh so close. Nice troops this week!


#4

Look like they don’t want wisp meta on consioe :slight_smile:

Glad we get the new goblins, but annoyed there have been 2 weeks in a row where we are highly encouraged to use our event keys. I am down to around 80 keys which is sometimes a far cry from what is needed to get even 1 copy of a new event only legendary, and I’d really prefer not to dip into my gem stash.


#6

Will they ever change the text to say ‘4+’?


#7

Does the console crowd have Spoils of War in the glory shop? You can get an event key from that for 180 glory on PC/Mobile.


#8

Yes we got it


#9

What gem stash


#10

It’s a moustache made of gems :stuck_out_tongue:


#11

Oh boy, here comes an all-out Goblin attack week on Xbox One.


#12

I would advise against buying your Event Keys with raw Gems. Event Keys cost 50% MORE than Gem Keys when converting raw Gems. If you have a decent stash of Glory, then convert some of it to Event Keys (just enough to get 1 copy).

Edit: I missed @Mithran 's post indicating the same idea.


#13

Fizzbang needs work still, and everyone knows it -.-


#14

Fizzbang glory bundle only comes with one arcane? Is that a mistake? @Saltypatra


#15

I cannot even get in


#16

Bought 5 before I realised this.


#17

Luckily I only bought one before realizing, but still worth filing a support ticket IMO it’s the principle of the matter.


#18

my guild cannot even get in to do anything! it just spins


#19

I bought all 16 of mine before realizing it. Feeling a bit sour about it. Definitely hoping this an error


#20

This should be fixed. Please let us know if you’re still seeing the single arcane in the bundle.
