Lost gold

I was catching Salmon for one of the repeatable quests, to earn gold. I caught enough to get multiple trophies/awards for Fishing and Salmon Fishing.

I was rewarded the gold, as per usual, bringing my total to between 950 and 990 gold.

Then I bought 10 more bait, and suddenly I lost about 500 of the gold I'd just been awarded, bringing my total back down to about 450 gold.

 

I tried going to the 'Switch Profiles' page and then going back in-game, as a 'Log out / Log back in' attempt, but that didn't work.

 

I don't know what to do now.

Hi MuteFeather. Please send me a private message with your game account username, Viking name, and a brief description of the problem (similar to what you wrote above). We'll take care of this as soon as we can.

Maybe a fair glitch

MuteFeather, you have to know that sometimes, expecially when you win some gold in a row, the game adds more gold than the amount you won - usually it duplicates the winnings. The total amount is brought back to the right number when you first buy something, causing you to think there was an error in the selling-process instead.

If you think this is not the case please carry on your request. Remember only that fishing achievements are not so profitable when you get pendants: they only give your hundreds when you complete the whole achievement.

Not Sure

Ah, I see. I'm not sure if that's what happened. How much do the Amazing Angler (250 fish) and Super Salmon (100 Salmon) awards give out? (I tried to double check, but they don't tell me now that I've already earned them.)

I don't know for sure.

The Amazing Angler does not end at 250, does it? The final achievement is 400 fishes. So maybe it gave you around 200 gold. The Super Salmon is unreachable for my basic rod, but I think it would give you no more than 150 gold. Do you remember how much gold you had before the achievements?

250

Amazing Angler ends at 250. (I think the stages were 10, 50, 100, and 250.) The next one starts at 400.

And no, I don't, unfortunately. Just that it wasn't enough to buy the saddle for my quest at the time. Ah well. I'm not too worried about the gold anymore, since I've completed all my quests. Now all I'm doing is fishing and making money, playing some of the games to earn the trophies while I wait for more.

If no one else is having this problem, I'm going to assume it was what you said about the reward glitching and duplicating.

Yet,

thinking again about the achievements' rewards, it seems more likely that a bug occurred indeed.

However, with a thoughtful farming you're able to make at least 500 gold in less than two hours... look there for more info.

And, just a tip: when you go for rewards, try if possible to wait until each one is stored in your money count before earning the following. When they don't overlap is less probable to get a duplication.

Surprisingly

Surprisingly, I wasn't actually going for the rewards at that time. I was just fishing to make money (with the salmon quest) to earn enough to buy a saddle. ^^;

But if there was a glitch, I know you guys will figure out what it was. Just... Yanno. You don't need to worry about my gold or anything. Just the game! Can't wait for the next few features. (I'm hoping you guys will release more partner-type dragons. I know we're not getting Night Furies, but more choices overall would be amazing.)
