2021-10-25 - Halloween Event Begins!

Recommended Posts

@Su_Halcon sorry to hear about your garden. Make sure not to harvest your pumpkins my bad! You said pumpkins, not squash. until it says you will get 14 coins for them. I assume you have the one seed in a 2 x 2 plot. (Some players call it a 4 x 4). If so, that will give your pumpkins enough room to grow to their maximum, which will give you 14 coins. They will need watering several times. 
 

ETA: My mistake. You said pumpkins, not squash. Pumpkins give only 4 coins for their first opportunity to harvest if you have them planted in a 2 x 2 plot. Since you want to maximize your coins and you only can harvest them one time, do not harvest them when it says you can get 4 coins. Wait for the second time when they will give more coins. I do not know how many coins they give for the second opportunity to harvest them. I only know it will be more than four coins, or at least I’m pretty sure it will be.

Don’t worry, even if you plant in an area that says “may need room to grow,“ as long as you allocated enough space, it will grow there. The general consensus is having plants or rocks adjacent can cause these plants to take a little longer to grow. But they still grow.

Okay, whoever did this:

You are awesome. I just spent a good 5 minutes geeking out over this one, especially considering my PFP which I literally changed about two days before the event started.

I for one would be entirely content if the Haunted Harvest was the annually returning Halloween event from now on. This is so much fun!

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but can crops rot if you don't pick them? I'd just like to finish on six rows of vegetables.

Acorn squash is available at lvl 4 for 3 coins.

I was JUST getting ready to say something about this. It was one of the games in Squid Game. :)

hm my pumpkin does nothing at all (that one with an orange and a white pumpkin in it), I thought they were just deco? And I guess my seeds that need more room are probably acorns, but with not being able to move them they won't grow any further.

 

Perhaps it would be a nice idea to have us turn energy into coins or seeds, so stuck ones like me could have a chance to do something.

I have a possible solution to the confusion about the grid system, though I understand if it cannot be done... A small edit to the field sprite, to make the "minor" grids lighter in color, perhaps? I'm on mobile so I can't give an example right now.

On computer now, I can actually show what I mean:

Spoiler

The grid as it currently looks. --> The grid, with a slightly discolored "minor grid". The grid, with a very discolored "minor" grid.

 

It doesn't look that good but it's an acceptable demonstration, I think. :unsure:

if you purchased the pumpkin that is a decoration, you’re right; it won’t produce any harvest for you. There are pumpkin seeds to purchase that would have.

 

Your acorn squash need a 2 x 2 plot each to get the most harvest out of them (14 coins). Since you indicated your land was mostly bare, I assumed that you planted them with plenty of room to grow. But if unfortunately they are on the edge and somewhere where they cannot spread out, I don’t know how much you will get from them when they are finally ripe. Keep watering them and maybe you will get lucky.

How long does the squash take to get to 14 coins from planting please?

I've made it to level 22, have squash, parsnips, corn, cabbage and pumpkins planted. 

 

Added a black kitten earlier, and just now stuck a raven in too. Tried to put him on top of the tallest stump, but he refused to land there. Maybe he's afraid of heights?

 

I've just been checking the farm between dragon chores, reading on my kindle, and occasionally watching TV. That way I'm not waiting for energy to charge, and I don't get frustrated. What I AM waiting on is the hatching of that sneaky little chicken who crept onto my scroll right before the Halloween event started! Luckily, with the help of some wonderful players here, I managed to stock up on a small herd (flock? murder?) of Red dragons, so I incubated the tiny yellow egg. I love the BSAs!

 

I also love that the treats keep coming after this year's are all found, since I don't have the ones from previous years.  I'm about 20 into last year's now. So fun!

 

Good luck on the farming, everyone! I'm continuing to grow a pumpkin to see if it actually does grow bigger. I'll let you know ...

Level up. 10 gets a pickaxe for rocks. 20 gets an ax for stumps.

So my pumpkins just got to the large size and I can harvest them for 8 coins. Acorn Squash are a better deal and take less time to grow. Think I'll stick with them.

I was hoping they'd keep growing. I planted one by itself with lots of open space around it, offered to water it frequently (it didn't want watered again once the pumpkins were harvestable), but they only got to the 8 coins size and stopped. I was hoping for a giant pumpkin or cabbage like we grow up here (almost 24 hour daylight much of the summer). Oh well, it was worth a try!

That many, hmmm? Well, so far I have the 50 new ones and 28 of the older ones. If they continue throughout the week like this, I think we can do it! It's just going to take a LOT of persistent checking.

....searching for the eye drops, making sure they're next to the computer ...*LOL*

ah so there are also growing pumpkins, ok xD

Nah I planted them between rocks and stumps not knowing they need that place. Can't water them anymore and they do not grow.

I was now able to sell my former-bugged plant for 2 coins and bought 2 plants, planted them VERY carefully and hopefully they get me back in the game xD

Do pitfires have a lower drop rate than the others? I haven't seen a single one yet.

I had two logs with glowing eyes and now they're gone. I'm only at level 8 and I don't have the axe, so I don't know how they could be missing. 😭

Alright so I hit level 25 and: 

 

Spoiler
  1. FWIW, fairly sure you only get XP from harvesting crops - which I don't know that I've seen said.
  2. Glow Mushrooms and Cabbage also seem to have a wait and harvest when they're bigger dynamic, like pumpkins and squash.  
  3. At level 25 (I think - I was at 26 when I noticed), you can get carnivorous plant seeds from the shop.  5 coins.
