The Great Farm Off Tasks

Get ready to get your Farming on! FarmVille's all new Old World Expedition is releasing for Early Access on September 3rd, 2018. With it comes its main feature, the The Great Farm Off. This feature is similar to the GRAPE ESCAPE, with its daily goals/limits and to Hammer Whammer with its feature specific leaderboards and yet new with the feature specific community goals.  This post will cover the TASK aspect of the feature. Read below  for an overview of tasks and A COMPLETE LIST OF TASKS, POINTS AND WHAT WILL COUNT please share....

Please note - the TREE and ANIMAL tasks are currently NOT working. We have reported this to the FarmVille Studio and they are working on a fix.

For a written leaderboard guide to  The Great Farm Off Click here

Differences for this farm include higher points on some tasks, no other farm tasks for the leaderboard and no bushel tasks this go round.

You will need 10 Bundles of plenty to advance beyond your 20th point and accrue points for the tasks you do each day.

We will complete tasks to fill the daily meter up to 50 points.

When you complete the daily meter, you can earn additional points by doing tasks for the farm specific leaderboard. Unlike the Hammer Whammer feature from The Pavlozny Festival, The Great Farm Off's leaderboard does NOT have tasks that require you to travel to another farm to complete them.

You will need to click the BUY button to access the bundle of plenty menu, do not worry, it will not charge you any Farm Cash.

Once inside you will be given the option of crafting, Asking via feed post or acquiring more by purchasing land tiles.

Tasks will be similar to the ones on recent prior main features. 

You can check your meter for your daily progress 

and the bottom of the feature screen for weekly progress

The upper left corner of every task will show the number of points you will get to redeem it with a star icon. 

When a task is complete you will need to click the green redeem button, that will replace the plant,craft etc button to receive your points.

If you do not want to complete a task you may trash it (you will not get any points for a trashed task)

You will then need to wait 15 minutes for a new task to appear with a realtime countdown timer in the spot of that task.

Opening gifts in the Grand Museum offers between 1-10 points per gift, . If you receive a task for a gift you have already opened, you will be able to redeem it immediately.

The Hotel Sanctuary yields  points each time you level it up. You will also earn TWO POINTs each time you harvest it.

We will have many crop harvesting tasks. You will be able to earn differing point values depending on difficulty. These will be complicated by the fact that upon arrival to the farm, you only have 40ish water plots available and around 120-130 land plots (once you clear the first 9 treasures). If you are someone who likes to purchase additional land upon arriving on a new farm, this will be a help for these tasks. You may also choose to use the many Instagrows it's possible to earn in the game (click here for more info on how to earn Instagrows). 

We will not see our first free expansion until the 3rd week on the farm for early access and 2nd week on the farm for general access. This means it will only be available for 3 weeks of this feature. This expansion is a land expansion, which means unless you purchase an additional tile, you will have to work with the original 40 ish  waterplots. 

All of this means that when it comes to these crop harvesting tasks, you will have to plan out your strategy. You can also trash the task if you like, but keep in mind that you will not get any points and will have to wait 15 minutes for the next one if you do.

We will also have many craft related tasks in the Bazaar Stall For most players, these seem to come up the most. Unfortunately, due to the random way the tasks appear, players reported having 3 star, 4 star, and even 5 star crafts as their tasks upon arriving on the farm. Crafts take anywhere from 1-8 hours, so you should also factor that into your planning. There are several ways you can approach this. You can do the trick to level up your crafting cottage to 5 Star as fast as possible (see here) (disclaimer some players may have a bug preventing them from buying it back for coins, if this happens you will need to contact support). You can trash the higher star  and higher time crafting tasks, but keep in mind, you may just get another crafting task in its place. Due to the feature's randomness, it's possible to have most of your board be crafting tasks, so it may be possible to just ignore higher level crafting tasks until your building is leveled and concentrate on the lower ones. All of these decisions will have to be made according to which strategy fits your style the most. For more information on the  Bazaar Stall crafts, including which bushels you'll need, click here. Below, we've listed the various crafting tasks and what you can expect to earn from them

Next up, we have the task of harvesting  animals.  There are many more varieties to this task this time and some oddness. You will get the task to harvest:

Quantity Of Animals To HarvestPoints Earned For The Task


 Most animals will work, but there are 
, but there are exceptions, such as some quest rewards. The ones that will work will be listed below for your convenience, and you can find images of them here. When doing this task, there are a couple of tricks to make it easier. There are also various foals and calves you can collect from your friends if you want to amass a larger number of animals for the 25 animal task, and a few of these are not locked and can be put into playpens on other farms for faster "grow" times. . Keep in mind also you get prizes for each completed animal pen (or you can collect them from your friends off the feed). Any animal you receive from the Sea Side Spa self contained crafting will not be locked and can be used on another farm for this task. In addition, if you have any of the older Capital One instagrows that make animals ready, they can be of potential use here. There have been reports of harvests not counting when using the Animal Harvester vehicle, so we recommend that you do not use this during this task.

Due to the random nature of tasks, it is possible to get 2 different animal harvest tasks at the same time:
The good news is, harvests will count for both tasks, so if you find yourself in this situation, it will be a benefit to you. Now, if you check below, all the animals you can use for this task will be listed: (The FarmVille Studio is aware that animals are currently not counting and are working on a fix)

We will also see the task of harvesting Old World Expedition  trees. These tasks of harvesting  function about the same as the animal ones. Trees have a slight advantage over the animals however, due to Orchard stuffing. It is possible to take the unlocked trees to a farm where you have a lot of ready orchards and manually "stuff" them and get each tree harvesting task done within a couple of minutes. For a video of how to do this, click here.  Much like the animal tasks, it is possible to get two at once, and use the harvests to count for both tasks. Much like the animal tasks, we recommend not using the Orchard Harvester for this task.  For images of these trees, click here. Below we have listed all the possible trees to use for this task. Keep in mind that quest rewards may not work. 

All of these trees have a level two "Giant" counterpart which will also work:(The FarmVille Studio is aware that trees are currently not counting and are working on a fix)

Another task we can expect is to ask our friends to click on tasks for us, much like in quests. These posts allow 10 friends to click on them, and provided you're also on the task, when you click on the posts, you can get one for yourself.

Finally, we have the task of spending coins. This task is an instantaneous task, that allows you to spend a certain amount of coins to win points and progress. The coins you spend do not actually purchase any items, and purchasing coin items from the market will not work for this task. For this task we will be asked to spend 10,000 coins, 500,000 coins, 1 million coins , 1.5 million coins to earn 1-3 points.
