Still unable to send or request gifts or quests items - Updated 10/28/2011

Hello Farmers,

Some players have reported that they cannot send or receive gifts/quest items. This may manifest in multiple ways:

-  Unable to publish requests for Quest items or free gifts
-  Unable to send free gifts due to an empty friends list
-  Requests do not publish to the news feed even after clicking share


We do understand that it can affect your ability to complete quests or finish buildings. Our team is still investigating this issue.

One recommendation is to use Chrome and Firefox instead of Internet Explorer.

If you are affected by this issue, please click the Vote button below so we can report an accurate number of affected users to our development team. Additionally, we appreciate all feedback and suggestions. To submit a suggestion, click on the "submit suggestions" link on the top right corner of the support page. This information helps us share your thoughts and opinions with the FarmVille team.

We apologize for this inconvenience.

Unable to harvest the Reverse Skunk or Granny Wolf

We are receiving notifications from Players that are unable to progress in the Trick or Treat Quest 2 and 3 since harvesting the Reverse Skunk and Granny Wolf are not counting towards the quest tasks.

We are aware of this issue and are currently investigating.

As a workaround, to receive credit for the Quest, please harvest the Reverse Skunk and Granny Wolf outside of the breeding pens.

Note:  *If you put unready animals inside of a "ready to harvest" breeding pen and then harvest the pen, there is a bug showing that credit is given for the quest task. This is a display error. With breeding pens, the animal harvest credit is given the next time you harvest the pen since the unready animal needs to go through the waiting cycle for the pen to be ready again.

Thanks for your cooperation.

The Haunted Village Walkthrough

Hello, Adventurers!

Welcome to the first of our four Halloween Maps! The Haunted Village is a really fun map, and I very much enjoyed it. We hope you do too!

As always, you can get to the map by clicking on the "Map" button:

And then clicking on the "Haunted Village" button.

Let's get going!

The entire map:

You will start out with the first quest already revealed:

The spiders that drop the gravestone pieces are slower moving, as the Professor explains:

In case you need help finding things:

Quest #2 pops up when you talk to the folks in the village. Ewww, smelly socks! Ask for them early!

And Quest #3 shows itself when you first run into one of the many, many spiders on this expedition:

35 spiders sounds like a lot, but don't worry - they're everywhere!

You may ask "But what about all of those red vases on the wall, taunting me?" Well, just in case you have trouble:

Whew, what an adventure!

Very well done!

Happy Adventuring!
