FarmVille's Mistletoe Lane expansion won't be available for free until November 19, but if you've already made your way into Zynga's second holiday farm, you'll find a second series of goals available for a limited time. Mistletoe Lane's Chapter 2 contains six goals to finish over the next week, but again, only players that have purchased a ticket into Mistletoe Lane early can complete them. Here's our look at the goals and prizes in Chapter 2 of Mistletoe Lane, thanks to Zynga.
An Elfing Hand
• Get 6 Elfalfas
• Harvest 20 Cider Apples
• Harvest Animal Workshop 2 Times
For this Elfalfas task, and all others that ask you gather a specific collectible, you'll need to post a general news item to your wall asking all of your friends for help. For the Cider Apples, these can be planted for 72 coins per square and harvested after 16 hours. Finally, if you've just arrived in Mistletoe Lane, you'll have some work to do before collecting from your Holiday Animal Workshop, as it's incomplete when you first arrive. (Check out our guide to the Holiday Animal Workshop to get started.) You'll receive 150 XP, a Dwarf Ox and 3,000 coins for completing this goal.
Four-Legged Friend Cheers
• Get 8 Warming Chips
• Harvest 30 Wax Beans
• Make Holiday Pudding 1 Time
The Wax Beans take another 16 hours to grow, so plant those as soon as you're done with the Cider Apples, even if you haven't finished the first goal. That way, when you do make it this far, the crops will hopefully already be grown, saving you time. As for the Holiday Pudding, it's completed in the Patisserie using one Winter Squash, two Cider Apple and two Coffee Bushels. You'll receive 200 XP, an Oak Hot Tub and 3,500 coins when you complete this goal.
Lighting Up Landmarks
• Get 8 Garlands
• Harvest 40 Winter Grain
• Make Apple Cider 1 Time
The Winter Grain takes one day to grow, while Apple Cider is another dish that must be crafted in your Patisserie. It requires two Cider Apples, one Holiday Poinsettia and two Rye Bushels to create. When you finish these tasks, you'll receive a Holiday Water Tower (complete with holiday lights), 250 XP and 4,000 coins.
Hear the Cheer
• Get 8 Holly Horns
• Harvest 50 Winter Squash
• Make Holiday Pudding 2 Times
The Winter Squash is another crop new to Mistletoe Lane, and it can be harvested after two days. Since this is such a long time, it's worth repeating that you'll want to plant these crops ASAP, even if you're not ready for this particular goal, just so that they can be growing "in the background," saving you time later on. When you finish this goal, you'll receive 300 XP, a White Holiday Buffalo and 4,500 coins.
• Get 9 Moonlight Lights
• Harvest 60 Potatornaments
• Make Benne Cake 2 Times
These ornament-shaped potatoes can be planted for 60 coins each, and are ready to harvest after 12 hours. Since there are no crop growth limits on your Mistletoe Lane farm, we suggest planting as many crops as you can at once to fulfill these tasks. (But don't forget about wither timers.) Regardless of when you harvest these crops, you'll need to make the Benne Cakes in the Patisserie using three Honey Ginger, two Wax Bean and one Lavender Bushel each. Your rewards for finishing this particular goal are 350 XP, a Moonlit Holiday Tree and 5,000 coins.
• Get 10 Night Sky Dusts
• Harvest 70 Flint Corn
• Make Holiday Stew 2 Times
If you've just arrived in Mistletoe Lane, this final goal might offer a bit of a challenge, because of Holiday Stew, which is only available in a 2-Star Patisserie. That being the case, craft even more than these goals require you to, so that you can level up your Patisserie with enough time left over to actually make the Stews. A single Stew requires two Potatornament, two Flint Corn and two Tomato Bushels to cook. The Flint Corn itself is another lengthy growth-time crop, taking a full day. When you complete this final goal in the series, you'll earn 400 XP, a Borealis Horse and 5,500 coins.
Next week, Mistletoe Lane should roll out to all players for free, allowing all players to jump into Mistletoe Lane's Chapter 3 and beyond. If you're still on the fence about early access, check out our coverage of the farm below.
