The Dirt Farmer LIVE! Show Summary April 16, 2017

EXTRA EXTRA Read all about it!!! Have you ever wanted to listen to the podcast, but you are unable to do so? Do you want to know what's happening in the world of Farmville? Do you need a quick reference for your quests, leaderboards, farmstands and more?  Well do we have a treat for you!! Here it is this week's EXCITING new addition of The Dirt Farmer LIVE! Show Summary!  If you enjoy reading it, please remember to share with your fellow farmers!

Early Access for the new LEGEND of TENGGUAN Farm will be in just a few hours from now.  Sometime in the wee early morning we will be given the opportunity to slap down 45 FV Cash and be granted EARLY ACCESS to this new farm.  The 45 FVCash is actually a 188 FVCash Value.  How can they do that, you may ask? Well, we don't really know, we don't really care but we can tell you what you will get when you buy that EARLY ACCESS.  There are 3 Exclusive Crops for this new farm:  They are the Nariphon Fruit, Rose Star Flower, and the Thai Marigold Fruit.  They're all GREEN and GOLD, how odd is that.  We get some really really funny but colorful AVATAR costumes. There's a COMBINE that looks like it's got a Temple on top of it, but it's free.  You Early Access players will be Farming FUEL FREE for the first week, and if that wasn't wasn't enough you will also receive DOUBLE BUSHELS as well. A Garuda Pegacorn will be waiting for you when you buy the Early Access as well as a Starter Pack.  The Starter Pack will include Thai Tunic Goat, a Thai Welcome gnome couple, a Thai Dancer Tree, as well as 18 Shrine of Tengguan Parts, 32 Treasure Parts, 400 Points for the new farm.
The Dirt Farmer wanted to know how many of you have already decided to BUY this Early Access.  It was the focus of our POLL of the WEEK.  It seems that 64% of you are planning on buying Early Access while 22% say they will just wait for General Access a week later. The remaining 14% still have yet to decide.  Well, If you're on the fence you had better hurry up and pick a lane because you only have a few hours left!
With every new farm since THE LIGHTHOUSE COVE...We've had a CENTERPIECE building for each farm.  It's NOT necessarily located at the CENTER of the farm, and is often called THE MAIN BUILDABLE.  With the upcoming LEGEND of TENGGUAN farm we will be collecting GOLD BRICKS, BAMBOO SHOVELS and GARUDA HAMMERS in order to build the SHRINE of TENGGUAN.  You will start on LEVEL 0 and build to LEVEL 9 so that means 10 LEVEL UPS.  In total you will need 202 GARDA HAMMERS, 111 GOLD BRICK and 111 BAMBOO SHOVELS.  For some time now we have also had LEVEL UP rewards as we complete each level.  We will start out with a Khom Loy Tree, a unique deco called the Golden Naga Statue which looks like a statue of a 3 headed dragon. We have a Paper Umbrella Tree. Then there is a Singha Temple Guardian which may be a LION or it may be a deco statue of a Lion, it's hard to tell. Next we have Three Great Khons which are 3 dancing gnomes with big ole honkin masks on.  There’s a Lotus Bloom Turtle, a Suvannamaccha Dolphin.  In Thai mythology "Suvannamaccha" was a mermaid princess.  We have a Kinaris Peacock.  Kinaris is the bird prince in ancient mythology, and our last reward is the Airavata Elephant.  "Airavata" is a mythological white elephant who carries the Hindu god Indra, but, Farmville made it a BLACK elephant, just sayin'
We all like FREE STUFF, especially FREE UNWITHER RINGS and our UnWither Ring THINGIE for this new farm will be called the House of Ceremonies.  As with past UnWither Ring THINGIES we will open 30 Free Gifts and upon completion we will be awarded our LEGEND of TENGGUAN UnWither Ring.  This time we will be using COPPER SATANGS to open the gifts.  The SATANG is an ancient Thai Coin.  We will be awarded these coins as we harvest on this new farm but you can also craft them in increments of ONE, THREE and FIVE.  We can see a variety of consumables in these unwrapped gifts, including treasure and new farm building parts.  We can also see a few unique rewards such as Sparkling Lobsters, a Thai Village Cow, Floating Flame Lanterns which is  a water deco, an Aqua Webbed Seahorse, and many many more. For a complete list you can visit us at by clicking on the link below.
We have some NEW themed buildings to talk about.  Our crafting cottage will be called Taeng’s Atelier.  An Atelier is basically an artisan's studio, a place where artists meet to practice their craft.  Very fitting for a crafting cottage.  We also have all new themed animal pens with a COMPLIMENTARY Animal for each pen you complete.  The Aquarium comes with a White Angel Fish.  The Aviary has a CHICKEN, yes, we've asked for a new chicken in the coop, and maybe this is the studio's way of gifting us one.  We will get a Suay Chicken upon completion of the Aviary.  The Baby Play Pen comes with a Chai Foal.  The Livestock Pen will give you a Golden Spiral Sheep.  We get a Golden Durian Tree once we build and expand the Tree Orchard to a Super Orchard.  We get a Khiaao Pegasus with the Paddock.  There is a Nohk Cow with the Pasture.  The Pet Run will get you a Thai Ridgeback.  The Golden Singha is a Lion and you will get one once you build the Wild Life Pen, and once you build the Zoo you get a Raaeng Dragon. As always, if you build that chicken coop, you get a WHITE CHICKEN
One thing we always have to look forward to with each new farm, is our CAST OF CHARACTERS.  We get 4 new characters with the new LEGEND of TENGGUAN farm.  We get to meet King Prayut.  He looks sad.  has a pointy sword and pointy shoes to match.  Maybe he's sad because his momma dresses him funny.  Mad Monk Taeng looks angry, let's hope he doesn't have a WARDROBE MALFUNCTION.  Because he's about to show a little nipple.  Phayao looks like a young WARRIOR Lady, she's got teeny stick legs and a wee tiny red bra.  Finally we get to meet Princess Rutana, she's short and cute. wearing a pink dress with lotus flowers in her hair.  It's just like DISNEY...who said MULAN?
We have started ROUND 13 of the Daily Delights.  This week we will be collecting CANDY SUSHI for consumables and a chance at a Wedding Singer Chicken, which is really a re-cycle waste.  It was a free COUNTDOWN reward from January of 2015, The Finding Love Countdown.  Our third week's bonus critter will be the Floral Madness Cow which may actually be a new item.  After that we'll be playing for a Floral Bouquet Phoenix.  This item is from way back in January of 2014.  It was part of the FLOWERS and LACE Valentine's Market Theme and was 20 FV$ when last released.  The following week we'll see the Recycle Worker Dog from the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL DAY Market Theme from June 21st 2015.It was a 12FV$ item.  Then we will see the Masked Rose Pig which seems to be a new critter.  We'll have the origins of the remaining Daily Delight's Round 13 Rewards right here next week.
As many of you may know, we have been running an Easter Contest.  All you have to do to win in our new contests is to simply comment on our CONTEST POST on our website.  June Mauriello has won a Sweet Acres UnWither Ring and Tressa King Rodgers has won an English UnWither Ring.  Congratulations to our newest winners and now it's time to talk about our next contest.  Let's do a CINCO de MAYO CONTEST. Watch for the post...It'll be out soon!

Wednesday saw the start of yet another Ode to Olympus Sale.  This was an 80% off Land Expansion Sale.  Then on Friday we got a 70% off World Sale on the WILD WEST RANCH farm.  Now that may be quite enough Sales for most of you, I know we have some BROKE Dirt Farmer's out there.  But it wasn't enough for the FV Studio.  We got another WORLD SALE just a few hours ago on the SWEET ACRES Farm.  If you are a FARM SALE addict then be sure to check in to the Dirt Farmer's Facebook Page each and every day for news on sales and other vital game news!

Rush is handling the Chicago-area end of the three-year-long study.

We all know that playing Farmville isn't getting any easier these days. Whether Farmville is throttling  access to your friends or the  Facebook newsfeed is hiding them from you it's hard to find help links on the newsfeed.  Add that to the fact that a lot of fellow players have quit and it becomes very challenging to  find help.  That's why you should join one or all of the Dirt Farmers SHARE Groups. Mam-Maw's Trading Post, Quest Help and More, The VOTE HELP Group and GOT SHEEP are link sharing groups where you can find neat items and even get help with common FV activities.  We also have several helpful groups such as The Dirt Farmer, Farmville News Network and others! Be sure to ASK to JOIN today and please tell your FV friends about these helpful resources.
In the meantime, we hope you will visit our website as often as possible.  Your support and your clicks on that website is what enables us to provide our services to all the players. Share those posts from our Facebook page so we can reach even more players, so we can help them manage their game and stay in the game. Without YOUR support there is no Dirt Farmer.  Thanks to each and every one of you!
Here’s the link to this week’s podcast, because don’t you really want to listen to all of it after reading the summary?
