Green Rare Ember.png This page contains information regarding the Anniversary Event 2021.
Much of the content below is copied verbatim from Castle Cats and is therefore copyrighted by PocApp.

Anniversary 2021 was a full Castle Cats event added to the app in version 3.0.1. It began on June 14, received a mid-event update on July 12, and ran through August 7.

The occasion was the 5th annual such event and marked both the 5th anniversary of the game's initial early access release in 2016 as well as the 4th anniversary of its official release a year later.[1][2] It is also usually regarded as Conan's birthday.

The celebration introduced five new heroes: Krystal, Opal and Fafnir, who could be purchased with real money, and two others who could be crafted in Alchemy. It also featured the return of all eight previous Anniversary cats as well as all three Charity event alchemy cats. (Charity events have seemingly been discontinued, so the associated alchemy cats have instead been available in recent Anniversary events.)

New guild leader customization options were available in the Event Shop, as were two new and nine returning hero outfits. Items from past Anniversary and other recent events were available in the prize pool of the Event Box.

Event Story[]

The event included a 15-quest campaign with a story that features the following characters (in order of appearance): Francis, Conan, Catniss, Selene and Krystal. A full transcript of the story dialog is now available.

Event Content[]

Event Materials[]

While the event was live, rewards for event-specific, normal and battle quests at quest level 4 and above could include slices of cake, party hats, and wrapped presents, Anniversary event materials that could be used to craft hero eggs and plushies and acquire new guild leader items. These materials could also be purchased as microtransactions in the Event Shop.

Bundle Cost VIP XP
2000 of each Anniversary material $14.99 USD +750
Event Pack:
  1000 of each Anniversary material,
  300 gems and Snappy
$9.99 USD +500
1000 of each Anniversary material $7.99 USD +400
500 of each Anniversary material $4.99 USD +250

The quest selection screen included a materials boost button offering the option to watch an ad and get double event materials from quest rewards for 30 minutes. Alternatively, purchasing a new premium hero for real money would double event materials from quest rewards and purchasing two or more microtransaction cats would triple them. These boosts lasted for the duration of the event and replaced the ad boost option.

Premium Heroes[]

The Event Shop offered three new Anniversary heroes as microtransaction purchases and all five previous premium Anniversary heroes for 300 gems each.

Plushies[]

Note: Plushies can only be unlocked in guilds that have reached level 50.
As part of the anniversary celebration, balloons occasionally floated across the guild hall, from bottom of the screen to top, and could be popped by tapping on them before they flew away. Two plushies could be earned by popping balloons.

Event Box[]

The Event Box was shown in the final tab of the Event Shop window. It could be purchased for 50,000 coins every 2 days or for 60 gems otherwise at any time. Players got a free box at the start of the event as well. For each box purchase, a player received one of the nine prizes shown in the window, chosen at random. The prize pool, which was automatically refreshed every day at midnight local time, could also be reset by watching an ad, and then for successively higher gem prices starting at 5 gems.

The overall prize pool for the Event Box included the following:

Event Badges[]

Players could earn up to nine event badges by acquiring new event content and completing event quests. Prizes were awarded for obtaining 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 badges. Progress is tracked and prizes can be claimed in the Event Badges window accessed by tapping the cake icon in the bottom left of the guild hall screen.

Requirements[]

Note: Real-money purchases were required to earn the Recruiter badge, which is fitting given that the reward for earning all badges, a 14-day VIP ticket, is useful only to players who have made at least $10 in real-money purchases.
