FrontierVille Master Farmer Quest

DISCLAIMER:

I’m posting this on 7/1/10 at 3:30 PM EST – there may be an update later today at which point some portions of this post may contain information that is no longer relevant. If that occurs I’ll do my best to update accordingly.

If you don’t like spoilers, stop reading this post. Right now. Either close the window, leave the page, or scroll away. I’m going to give away information about quests in the game.

Still reading?

Here we go!

I’m so thankful that I’ve just finished the Master Farmer Cycle in FrontierVille. The Master Farmer series of quests are quests meant to try your patience, test your endurance, and slowly but surely hack away at your sanity akin to the effects of waterboarding.

The Quest Cycle consists of two parts: Ranching & Farming.

For the Ranching Cycle you must:

  • Buy 6 sheep & Sell 6 Adult sheep
  • Buy 9 pigs & Sell 9 Adult pigs
  • Buy 12 cows & Sell 12 Adult cows

There is also an indepedent cycle of Fowl Ranching:

  • Buy 35 Chickens & Sell 35 Chickens
  • Buy 35 Chickens
  • Sell 50 Adult Geese

Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep Cheep

On the bright side, you’re able to prepare for this serious of quests. Notice how the requirements are to buy animals and then sell adult versions of those same animals. You can buy the animals in advance, raise them to their adult stage, and then sell them once you receive the quest. You’ll still get credit, then just buy new animals and the quest is done!

Most of the animals required are also available as “Free Gifts.” If you have friendly neighbors, it might be in your best interest to request some livestock – but remember that the courteous neighbor always returns a gift!

The Farming Cycle is less intensive, none the less tedious. You can expect to:

  • Plant & Harvest 60 Pumpkins
  • Plant & Harvest 300 Flax
  • Plant & Harvest 1500 Peanuts

That’s right. 1500 Peanuts.

Lost in the Land of Peanuts

The Peanut section of this cycle is the worst. You are going to eventually encounter, if you haven’t already, neighbors whose entire frontiers have been decimated by the Peanut Tsunami.

Planting 1500 Peanuts is a great challenge, not only because of the sheer number involved, but because A.) Peanuts are expensive and B.) Peanuts take 4 days to ripen. If you were to plant 500 peanuts a day (which would require clearing your ENTIRE frontier, including deleting buildings) you’d finish the quest in 12 days. I can’t exactly tell you how long it took me to finish the quest because I can’t remember the day I started it. But let me put it this way, I’ve been playing since day 1 (June 9th) and I just finished yesterday (June 30th).

The task wouldn’t be so daunting if we didn’t have a queue of 4 quests-at-a-time. Otherwise it would be possible (and I’m sure some players will take this approach) to casually plant a handful of peanuts at a time, taking a few months to finally complete the quest.

In the end, the rewards for completing the quests are quite dismal. I think I only got 1,000 experience from the Peanut Quest. Both Cycles take quite a bit of time, money, and energy to complete. You mostly receive bragging rights and a sore back.

I AM MASTER FARMER!

    On the other hand, if you are also questing to become a founder for the town, you need lots of money and peanuts provide. Also, you get lots of food bonus to keep you going in the harvesting. This is also nice. I am going to be SO glad with this quest is over.

    I was up to over 1000 harvested and planted and it reset yesterday, I am back to square one after over a week of peanuts. Anyone else have Master Farmer 3 reset?

      Oh, hell nah. If my quest reset after 1000 harvested, I would buy a few pitchforks at the market and tar and feather those clowns at Zynga.
