These goals go from September 24th, 2012 until October 1st, 2012. (or so)

Welcome to the full release of the new Haunted Hallows farm.  People who didn’t pay for early access start on these Chapter 2 quests, instead of Chapter 1.

  • If you haven’t read my previous guide, there’s some things you should know about this new farm.
  • There’s no limit to the amount of plots you can place – so shove as many in there as you can, if you want!
  • There’s no specialty coin like there was in Hawaii (coconuts) and Jade  Falls (jade).
  • There are TONS of immovable tombstones that you will need to clear, so gather up as many picks and mallets as you can.
  • There’s no water. Thank goodness.
Overall I find this farm a lot less annoying than the previous.. well, 4. And it’s Halloween themed, which is my favorite time of year! Continue reading »

These goals go from September 17th, 2012 until September 24th, 2012. (or so)

I can’t help it! My favorite holiday has always been Halloween.. and this time, I couldn’t help but pick up early access to the new Haunted Hollows Farm! On this farm, FarmVille has decide to go back to basics: No specialty coin (coconuts/jade), no limit on how many plots of land, and no water plots.  I’m quite happy for that, honestly. All those things really.. I mean, REALLY, irritated me about the previous farms.

And since I’ve mentioned that there’s no limit on the plots of land, I’d like to point out that you should consider jam-packing as many plots as you can onto your 12×12 starting farm.  I was trying to get through the first chapter of quests right away, so I planted 4 quests worth of crops, and then used one of my Instant Grow Potions that I had been saving up.  Shoving plots in between all of the immovable tombstones was a little difficult (tombstones hide gifts like the “Jade Fortunes” in Jade Falls).  Have a look.

I squished as many crops into my tiny farm as I could, and then used an instant grow potion. That's four quests worth of crops there, including the 40 ghoul garlic (3 day grow time) that I mention later.

Now before you do anything on your farm, have a look at the quest guide below.  You should take whatever shortcut you can since you only have about a week to do these.  For example,  Your Potion Shop (crafting building) has an already finished Nightshare Sherbet in it. You need to finish one of those for quest number 4. So if you can just leave it in there until you get to the appropriate quest, then that’s one less thing for you to have to wait for.

Also, that same quest (#4) requires the harvesting of 40 Ghoul Garlic, which has a 3 day grow time. Three days!  It would really be a good idea for you to plant those as soon as you possibly can so you don’t have to wait as long.

You will need some red tulip and sugar cane bushels for the crafting.  Best to get those ready ahead of time.

You can the following information to plan crops ahead so you can blow through the quests as fast as possible. Wherever possible, I have pointed out the bushels you will need to craft things in the Craftshop,  Plan accordingly. You may have to buy bushels in advance, ask for them, or plant those extra crops if your friends aren’t being helpful. The last few goals have a large amount of long grow time crops, so try to knock out the easy ones quickly so you have time.

 

If you like this post, PLEASE share it with your friends. It makes me happy. 🙂

These goals go from September 6th, 2012 until September 20th, 2012.

Take a look at the chart to get an idea of what to expect. You would benefit greatly by having at least two each of aviaries, livestock pens, and pet runs.  Keep them unharvested, ie “READY” until you get to a quest where you need to harvest a certain animal more than once.  Harvest 1 of them, then move the animal in question to the second READY pen, wait an hour and harvest again. This is much faster than having to wait a day every time you need to harvest the same animal once.

Wherever possible, I have pointed out the bushels you will need to craft things in the Craftshop,  Plan accordingly. You may have to buy bushels in advance, ask for them, or plant those extra crops if your friends aren’t being helpful. The last few goals have a large amount of long grow time crops, so try to knock out the easy ones quickly so you have time.
