Farmville Fields of El Dorado Chapter 9 Quest Guide


Quest Story: Thank the lords you're here, Farmer! I've let down my people but I've promised them you'll fix it. You will, won't you? You've never failed a task you've taken up! My people need to eat. Nothing makes me unhappier than seeing my people hungry.

Expected duration of the Farmville Fields of El Dorado Chapter 9 Quest is from 19th May 2014 to 18th June 2014.


Note: These quests are specific to the Farmville Fields of El Dorado Farm and hence, before placing any quest animals on other farms, make sure that the quest icon shows up on the other farm too, else their harvests might not count… Also, any info about unreleased quests can't be guaranteed to be the final requirements when the quests go live, as Zynga can change them at any time later... These quests are repeatable… Also, make sure you read the FULL POST, so that you don't miss out any important tips...


Note: The Crop alternatives mentioned here are good at the time of making this post originally… To check on the updated list, you can check out our Crop Alternatives Page on our Items Info Site




Quest Info

Read Before beginning to determine if you are willing or able to complete this quest.


You will need a 5 Star Herbal Hut to complete this quest. 


You will need to master the new Sapodilla crop which will be released at update roughly 13 hours  prior to quest release to 3 stars (7,200 harvests) Sapodilla is not locked to Fields of El Dorado, so you can use other farms to assist with mastery. 


You will need to raise the new Alphagem Soup recipe in the Herbal Hut to level 26 (Make or sell 150). This recipe is in the Herbal Hut already and does not require the new crop, so a jump start is recommended if you wish to pursue this quest. 


Note: Smart Quest credit is not guaranteed and can be removed by Zynga at any time without warning. Smart Quest amounts are provided in case you wish to GAMBLE, but planting anything less than the full amount required by the quest is at your own risk.


SNACK FEST: At this point, they're so hungry, they'll eat anything!

How many more Alphagem Soup you will need to craft will vary depending on how many extra you have  crafted beyond the stage requirements, whether or not you own a double crafting statue and how many you have sold.


How Much more Sapodilla you will need to plant will depend upon whether you have planted full or smart quest amounts in earlier stages, how much extra you have already harvested, whether or not you have used a bushel and what types of Crop Mastery Bonuses are in effect on your farms.

Useful Tips and Info:As mentioned before, these quests will be specific to the Farmville Fields of El Dorado Farm only… So, remember not to place any quest animals/trees on any other farms, ‘unless’ you see the quests icon active on the other farms too…
It would be a good thing to have a look at all the quests before starting them, so that you are fully aware as to what you will be needing to do or build for any of the future quests… More tips and details will be added as and when they are found out... Stay Tuned...

  1. All my sapodilla are planted, yes, all 7,200. Planning on harvesting it bit-by-bit to use to "swap bushels" for the 48 bushels of Emerald Pineapples needed which usually take 2 days to harvest. Other items needed will also be gotten through "swap bushel" and by getting any bushel of anything to swap -- my 11 p.m. raid of the market stalls.

  2. No quest yet, 9:15pm Central (US) Time. So my preparations are withering and Zynga is probably busy figuring out a new and different way to get me to spend cash on them. They truly do not care about people who play the game.

  11. Just checked with Zynga Support.....they are still working out some bugs in this quest and don't have a new release date yet. The good news is it gives us all extra time to level up that alphagem soup :)

  12. Quest is now opened around 2:30 PM Eastern Standard time. I have been planting and making soup in advance. With only 1 friend buying I am up to level 8 already. This is doable and will be finished in time to start over.

  13. Lovely. Typical Zynga is showing their disdain for the players yet again. They're THREE days late starting Chapter 9 to begin with. And then they go and change part of Quest 3 from "raise chocolate to level 2" (which I'd already managed to do) to "craft 6 chocolate" (which leaves my planning totally SCREWED! WTG, Zynga!! Way to show your players what you really think of them!

  14. I harvested all 4 of the required 'Heal-All' things earlier today, but have not yet been given credit for them. NONE of them counted!! WTH? Unless this gets fixed automagically in the next 24-26 hours this Quest is done for me. Another example of Zynga screwups. No, I did not contact Zynga support, there is no such animal.

  15. For the sapodilla bushels, it says to "use a bushel every time you harvest"....Can anyone tell me what that means?
