Tractor Race Quest and Key Rings Collection Mission


(Photograph of the Flower Fairy Decoration from the previous Quest and the new Boy Flower Fairy Decoration from the current Quest: a very charming pair!  Note that both Flower Fairy Decorations now are stackable on the Farm Pool Base)


(Above, Girl and Boy Flower Fairies on Farm Pool Base)

A new 11 day Quest has begun.  As usual, a traditional quest sequence was released in tandem with a Collections Mission.

The reward for the Key Rings Collections Mission is a new Stove House Recipe, the Shakshouka Recipe.  You will need a Kumquat Tree to complete this Collection Mission.  The Recipe is given below.

Any one is welcome to post a link to this page in his/her Facebook Group but please do not rip the text without giving credit to Freyashawk.  I work hard to log these quests myself and I am happy to share with every one, but have the decency to credit me, please.

Harvest Moon FDC and Farm Beauty Contest
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

My heartfelt gratitude to all farmers who were kind enough to vote for Freyashawk's Harvest Moon FDC in the Farm Beauty Contest.  I could not have reached Number 5 worldwide without you!  If you feel my site is useful, please consider voting for Harvest Moon FDC in the next Contest.  I never allow any advertising on my site, and spend real money to complete quests as quickly as possible.   (For example, I spend 12 RC to skip the Collections Mission today.  Will go back and do it AFTER the quest is complete.) This is the only reason I feel justified in asking for your support in the contests and not because I am a better farmer than my wonderful neighbours and friends!

Strategies for Quest
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I added these lists last time and players found them useful.  The following are the lists of Crops that you need to plant for the traditiional Quest sequence as well as the Machines and Animals on which Batch Production can be used to speed your progress.

Crop List
xxxxxxxx

Crops you will need to plant and harvest:

40 Clover
40 Oats
50 Pasture
50 Sweet Potatoes
50 Cassava (Island)

Daisies for Collection Mission

Batch Production List
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Remember that you now can set Batch Production for any Animal or Machine and store it temporarily in the Warehouse when the production is complete to avoid collection before it is needed for a task.  Here is a list of items that can be produced in this fashion for the Quest:

20 Bottles of Milk
40 Bags of Oat Flour
40 Sugar
50 Beef
6 Smoked Mackerel
50 Wool
50 Cassava Flour (Island)
30 Alpaca Hair
30 Cranberry Pies (Island)
30 Alpaca Hair Yarn (Island)
30 Toy Alpacas
30 Red Teddy Bears
30 Blueberry Pies (Island)

Batch Production that cannot be initiated in advance:

20 Eggs (This one CANNOT be produced in advance because the task is FEEDING them, not producing the eggs.)

Toy Machine
xxxxxxxxxxx

You will need a Toy Machine to complete all Tasks in the Quest sequence.  The Toy Machine is available again for a limited time in the Market in the Machine department.  You can find it randomly at any time in the Green Mystrons Shop but if you wish to buy it outright, it will cost 800 Coins.  You then need to complete it before you can use it.

Completing a Toy Machine requires the following:

Incomplete Machine: 800 Coins
5 Gear (Neighbour Request or 1 RC each)
5 Screws (Neighbour Request or 1 RC each)
1 Filter (1 RC)
3 Switch (3 RC each)

In other words, you must spend a total of 10 RC to complete the Toy Machine.  The materials that require RC to purchase sometimes may appear randomly in the Coin Mystery Shop for 60,000 Coins, according to members of our Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk group.

Trees to Harvest
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

When a recipe calls for a fruit harvested from a Tree, you can buy the fruit/product from the Flea Market if you do not own the Tree.  If, however, the actual task is harvesting a specific Tree, you need to have the Tree itself or skip the Task.  The following Trees must be harvested:

Kumquat (Collection Mission)
Almond
Maple
Sakura
Lychee

Of these, the Almond, Maple and Lychee Trees can be purchased with Coins in the regular Market.

Shakshouka Recipe
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The new Stove House Recipe, like most of those that are earned as Rewards for completing a Collection Mission is very simple and cooks quickly.  The ingredients are:

3 Cheddar Cheese
3 Eggs
1 Roasted Tomato Soup (2 Ketchup, 1 Egg Soup.  Egg Soup is made with 1 Egg, 1 Seaweed)
2 Red Peppers

Add all ingredients and cook.  You have to finish it within 20 seconds.   The Dish requires 6 Power.

(Thanks to Elizabeth Howard Puglisi, one of our valued administrators in the Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk Group.  She performed the Collection Mission I skipped temporarily.)

My note:  You can complete the Dish by tapping 'Finish' as soon as the Star activates at 16 seconds.

Fish for Mackerel 6 times
  Skip for 6 RC

  Use the Boost with the Treble Hook to catch 2 Mackerel.  If you are not familiar with the 'Boost' option, it can be activated when you have chosen any specific hook by tapping on the hook and then using the menu there to find the specific item you need to catch.  You have 7 tries by default.  The boost will take three of those tries but will guarantee that the item you hook is the one you have chosen.  You still have to catch it, though!  Thus, with 7 tries, you can use the Boost option twice here to catch 2 Mackerel.  You then either can purchase 5 more tries for 200 TC to give you two more Boosts for 2 more Mackerel or simply wait for time to work its magic to regain 7 tries.  You will need a total of 18 tries using the Boost to catch 6 Mackerel.  Otherwise, you simply can take your chances using the Treble Hook again and again until you have 6 Mackerel or skip the task or part of it using RC.  Note that another task below requires 6 Mackerel!

Produce 6 pieces of Smoked Mackerel
  Skip for 6 RC
  Note that you can use Level 5 Goldfinger to obtain these from the Smoke House even without having any Mackerel and they will count for the task.
