Farmville Phantom Valley Farm Grim Reaper's Byre Strategy Guide




Farmville Phantom Valley will bring with it fresh torture – er self contained crafting called the Grim Reaper’s Byre . Once again there will be 15 animals of increasing difficulty to make. Completing this feature will most likely be required to complete the Beat Phantom Valley event and win the shipping license. Your Dirt Farmer Team has a strategy guide for you to speed up the process and ease the pain as much as possible. For the Complete Guide to Farmville Phantom Valley  click here. Please share.



GREAT NEWS FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO STRUGGLE TO GET BUSHELS AND/OR HATE CRAFTING EXPANSION PARTS. AT THIS TIME INITIAL CAPACITY ON THIS FEATURE IS 10 Safe Chamber  (RECIPE) and 15 Tomb Ambry (INGREDIENT) . Expansions are granted automatically after animals 5, 10 and 14 and as long as you manage space carefully you can complete the feature without making any parts yourself.





First a look at how much storage you will need in your   Safe Chamber (Crafted Item Storage) and   Tomb Ambry (Ingredient Storage) to make each animal.

Remember that to unlock additional stations, you will need to make the first animal, making and remaking recipes will not accomplish this.

Below you will find the following charts

GREAT NEWS FARMERS - THE Grim Reaper’s Byre JOINS THE SAVANNAH RESERVE FOREST FAIR, RODEO RANCH AND ROYAL STABLE AS THE EASIEST SELF CONTAINED CRAFTING BUILDING TO DATE. TRADITIONALLY THESE BUILDINGS HAVE TAKEN 9.5 DAYS OR 228 HOURS TO COMPLETE. THIS TIME WAS VASTLY INCREASED WITH THE BLACKJACK BARN (352 HOURS OR 14.7 DAYS) AND THE TOY SHOPPE (448 HOURS OR 18.7 DAYS). THE Grim Reaper’s Byre GOES BACK TO THE TRADITIONAL FORMULA WITH ONE EXCEPTION THAT BRINGS MUCH RELIEF. THE HATED RECIPE AT THE END OF THE 2 HOUR MACHINE THAT REQUIRED 3 TWO HOUR SUB-INGREDIENTS AND TOOK 8 HOURS IN TOTAL TO CRAFT IS NOW ONLY 4 HOURS.  IF YOU WERE TO HARVEST EACH RECIPE EXACTLY ON TIME, THEN THIS FEATURE COULD BE COMPLETED IN A MINIMUM OF 8.8  DAYS.



The recommendations to comfortably make parts ahead take into account crafted ingredients needed to craft other ingredients for the current animal and leave a few left over spaces to store long term items that you are making for future animals. If you can expand further, it will be easier. (If you are crafting  expansion parts and have a stockpile of Super Fertilizer from the "Get 2" weekend, leaderboards or quests, use it on the necessary crops to get your bushels more easily)
3 Super Fertilizers



Even though the individual animal requirements for Ingredient  stored items are low, equivalent storage is recommended as later crafts use many of the Noting Pad, Spooky Pranks Box, Witch Wand, Monster Pet Bed, and Monster Cloche and you will want capacity to harvest and store those every time you look inside the building.





Minimum storage is the lowest expansion that can hold sufficient parts for that animal.

If you are looking to complete this feature in the least amount of time possible, you will want to begin making the 10 hour ingredients when you first get the feature and look ahead to the 6th animal and begin making the 6 hour plus ingredients by animal #3 and keeping them on hand. Getting ahead on the 2 hour ingredients is also wise if you’re willing to make the space, as many are needed throughout the feature.

There are two ways to expand your storage units. One, by crafting the parts in the Craft shop (See the Craft Shop Guide for recipes.) The second way is to make one or two animals over and over (Skull Crown Chicken is quickest and easiest) to get the 2 random expansion parts granted by each animal upon completion. As the parts are random, the latter method may be time consuming. There is a difference with the Grim Reaper’s Byre as opposed to all prior buildings, except the Reserve, Ranch, Stable, Fair, Shop, Barn, Garden, Stallions, Hideaway, Emporium and Fountain , though. All parts are weighted at similar item chance, with the only oddity being the Gravel Sack at 25% to the 37% of Building Stone and Crystal Nail.  If you want to craft a few, but not a lot, Gravel Sack is a good choice.The items for the other side are weighted equally, instead of some at 50% and some at 10% so it may be easier than usual.
Note: upon completion of the 5th animal, the game will automatically increase your Safe Chamber recipe storage to 15 and your Tomb Ambry ingredient storage to 20 and on completion of the 10th animal, the game will automatically increase your Safe Chamber recipe storage to 25 and your Tomb Ambry ingredient storage to 25. After the completion of the 14th animal the game will automatically raise your Safe Chamber storage to 30 and your Tomb Ambry storage to 35. If you are at or past these capacities when you complete these animals, you will not receive an expansion. .

There are two strategies you can follow to complete the animals in the Byre. One is careful management of resources, which will allow you to complete them with lowest expansion capacity possible. This way may take a bit longer as you cannot store many items ahead.
The other is making parts ahead and squirreling them away for when needed. That will allow you to complete the feature faster as you will complete more parts within same wait time by utilizing all machines at once. It does require more crafting and expanding. Which you opt for is up to you.
If you opt for the crafting method it is wise to focus on mastering the required crops first, as you will need a total of 240 -248 bushels, depending on which side  to make all of the parts for one expansion on either side.

The following chart shows which parts by animal  are the ones that take the longest time to craft. This includes anything that it’s own craft time, plus craft times of ingredients required for the recipe is 2 hours or longer. These are the ones you will want to make ahead and store before you reach that animal to save yourself the maximum amount of time as you progress.  Any crafted sub-ingredients for the recipes listed in the Grim Reaper’s Byre Complete Guide that take 2 hours or more to make will be listed in this table along with the required ingredients. You can also save time by pre-crafting the sub-ingredients before the longer term machines are done.  If you have additional space visit the Grim Reaper's Byre  Complete Guide and get ahead on the other recipes as well. There seem to be less of the tedious 2 hour recipes in this one.

Finally as mentioned above the Grim Reaper’s Byre is a little shorter than the prior animal making self contained crafting.  Total Completion time for the Grim Reaper’s Byre is a 214 hours or 8.8 days if you collected every recipe as soon as it’s ready. Total completion time for all animals on the Blackjack Barn was  352 hours or a little under 15 days if you collected every recipe as soon as it’s ready. Total Completion time for Magic Garden under the same conditions was 9.52 days, Rodeo Ranch 9.2 days and Toy Shop 448 hours or 19 days. While collecting right when it’s ready is not realistic, we have to sleep sometimes, that will at least give you an idea to compare your own experience with. Time difference per animal between Blackjack Barn and Forest Fair or other prior features. This one should be the easiest yet.
