Animal Academy 2019 Complete Guide







Starts Monday August 19th - The Duke has returned. Our trip down the Fortune Road is about to end. The Duke will reopen the Animal Academy to train more professional animals, to help get things done. From its multi-level, multi craftable consumable madness & its cash only critters accompanying the  free ones, it gives us a lesson in patience as well. Please do share.
   






The FarmVille Animal Academy feature is currently coded to start on August 19th, 2019 and end on September 23rd, 2019

A look at the loading screen

A look at the welcome popup,  
  

 We will be able to access the feature by the icon on right side of our farms.

If you take a close look at our feature interface that will appear when we first access the feature, it looks a little different. No animals can be seen at the bottom and instead of the old unlock button where you could choose to train free or farm cash animals, there is an ENROLL button.

Our trainee animals are  separated by PROFESSION categories.




You will need to complete  all five rounds of an exam before moving on to the next animal or profession.




\







In order to earn the bonus prize for a category, you must train all 6 animals in that category. 







There are three different items
that will be used in various combinations for your pet to use to take each exam. They are the Rainbow Orb, Shaman Stone and Hex Ball















Once inside the Examination Hall, you will have your pet's current level, final form and items needed to advance to the next level at a glance. 



The three varieties of items will be post and collect and craftable and of course purchasable for Farm Cash.

A look at the three consumables that we will be crafting for  the animals to use in taking the exams, and their recipes. They will be called the Rainbow Orb, Shaman Stone and Hex Ball. We will be able to craft each consumable in increments of one, three and five. 





Rainbow Orb Shaman Stone Hex Ball
You will receive up to FIVE of each consumable, each time you post for them. The posts are a give and get, so you  can also obtain up to an additional TEN of each per day by helping your friends. Remember, when you have collected your 10, you can  no longer help that day. You will not get one and the friend you click for will not get one either. It may however, use up one of their five clicks per post for no reward.
Now for a look at the craftshop recipes for the consumables that will be needed to take exams.

As usual there are  new crops associated with the recipes. While planning, keep in mind that new crops with zero mastery will give significantly less bushels than fully mastered crops. Perhaps choose a larger farm for those crops, keep an eye on the bushel report and make sure to plant enough to get the bushels that you need. Here is a look at the new crops and their bushels.
