The Cauldron experience

Hey everyone.

I have run into many topics stating that the Old Wrinkly's Cauldron is broken, and each player reporting a huge variety of bugs, so I decided to buy a cauldron myself and do an assessment of everything that's going wrong with it.

 

My first two observations:

  1. The Cauldron is using the old UI graphics. Maybe this is not properly a bug, but it could conceal some unnoticed and/or unresolved bugs coming from the old versions of the game;
  2. The Cauldron can be placed and rotated freely in the farm, but once it is placed it turns red and cannot be further moved or rotated unless you exit and re-enter Decorate Mode

Still haven't tried to redeem rewards through it (seemingly the thing that causes everything to blow up), but that's the next step on the list.

 

I will update this topic with my new observations.

 

P.S. I am playing from a HP Pavilion laptop, on Windows 10. I have the Steam distro of the game.

The cauldron is working for

The cauldron is working for me. It just seems like you need to wait for the bu to go away after you placed it. And don't move it or do anything with it for a few days and suddenly it's usable and the job board for exchange will show up when you click it. Once you have one working cauldron in your farm, the others you placed in your expansion will also work right away.

Update 1

Sorry for the long silence, but I was pretty busy.

 

However, tested the cauldron by completing a farm quest for 3 powerup chests. Everything went ok: so I think at least the major bugs are fixed.
