Castle Story Guide Wiki

The Ivy the Potion Lady Questline is aimed at helping Ivy, a character cursed as a tree. In her cursed form, she has tree-trunk colored skin and vines around her body. When you first see her, she is rooted to the ground. The quest comes from Old Thomas, and she typically is the second character you save.


According to the forum, constructing a Potion Shop will trigger these goals.

In order to reach Ivy, you must Expand your kingdom towards the north: one square to get next to her, and then expand again into her square. Your kingdom must have 120 Royal Points to open her square. You will need 4 Wisp Lanterns and 18,000 Coins to get to her.

The Old Thomas Introduction Questline tasks to build a Watchtower/Lantern Spire (The Royal Tower) and A View To The North may possibly(?) be required before expanding.
