The ancestral lands are great. You find 100+ exp quoins, and a bunch of Favor coins.

You need to try and find a path that people aren't on, since you only have 10 minutes to stay in the area before getting kicked out. The bandits are very slow, and can be jumped over. They are really not dangerous, and they tell you what item they are after. "Oh know, he's gonna steal one of my 1000s of paper!".

The good thing is the Blue signs you tip over as you walk by. They contain time bonuses (extend your time in the area) and random good Food, Drinks, Colored Keys, and Items. You can enter the area every 30 minutes. Just hope you enter in a place/time where there aren't many. Pay it a visit when you are low on energy, since you get quoins worth 30-80 energy all the time. Mood quoins are a waste of the 100 daily limit, imo.

I started learning Better Learning IV right now. 36 hours... (after two 900+ favor donations). It'll be about 7:30am monday morning when I'm done with it.

They really need to do something with planks from the wood tree. I was stupid and planted one in my home, but there's only ONE recipe in the whole game that seems to make use of them. And a single harvest awards quite a few plans, which only stack to 250... I don't have the room for that. :(

I had a weird bug earlier when traversing the ancestral lands. The game froze, I reloaded, and the time limit was gone. I was free to roam the whole zone...

After a while though, every single spot was producing Jujus, and I hit my quoin limit.


I really want one of the 15,000 current cottages in the Meadow. 5 trees and 16 garden plots, plus a 32 storage closet. I'm saving up money and bags to get ready to move to a bigger place. Probably won't do it right away though. (And they probably won't ever go up for sale...)

I'm saving up and moving out of my home by the end of the week. I've been selling everything I can get my hands on. Currently at 44k.

So if anyone is looking for a 4k tree house home in Tamila, it will have 6 pigs, 8 butterflies, a fruit tree and 2 spice plants.

Edit:
Plans got moved forward, I am now the proud owner of 1377 Pakodi Prim Quarter. 32 storage, 28 crop plots, 4 tree spots.

Making money was easy when I just vendored all my 100s of food items I got from RHK and harvesting eggs, spice, meat and milk. Then I sold off everything I couldn't carry.

Now I got a wood tree to nurish, I think I'll have to get my 1 of every tree type in a day quest done.

I've been focusing on getting the emblems to progress skills first. I'm almost completely done with it, which is nice. Only two more skills I really care about, I think. But as a result, all of my items have been going to donations.

I got all 11 emblems (and a copy of two or so). I spent a few for the stuff I needed, the rest are waiting for when I do.

I have quite a few skills learned. 42 including the 4 Better Learning skills. 38 Non-Learning.

I'm going to finish off a few of the smaller ones I need, then go get BL5 and be ready for the non Garden/Herd skills.

I finally managed to clear my wood tree--now I need to decide what else to plant. I'm leaning towards another fruit tree (so I'd have 2 fruit and a spice).

I just wish I had moved into a house with a dark patch, so I could plant an egg tree. >.< Oh well...

Bubble trees wouldn't be completely useless, but I feel like they've yet to really be developed. They are plentiful enough in the wild to fulfill all my bubble needs. And I'm not sure I understand what use gas trees are? I mean, each gas seems to be used in only one recipe... And I'm DEFINITELY not sure what purpose paper serves.

It's basically a social game based around exploration, crafting, and other players. Here's a link to my Beta review: http://www.zam.com/story.html?story=26231

Edit: Also, PM me an e-mail address and I can pass over an invite in about an hour and a half.

Until you reach about 10-12 hours of game play and realize you need to learn Better Learning 5.

Then start learning it and realize it's going to take almost 1 full week of real life time before you are done.

When I get home from work, I'm going to have to go on a Favor binge and start cutting time off. I've already turned in about 1500-2000 favor towards it, still have 5 days or so.

It's pretty much true. There's a bunch of stuff you can't do without the appropriate skills. If a skill's just going to make you better at something, you can hold off on it. But if it's required for another skill, or lets you do something new, then you are going to want it.

Nah, I've got enough work to do for the next few days that I wouldn't have the chance to play. Appreciate it though.

From the message on their website, it sounded like they're getting way more traffic than they anticipated.

Had a productive day in Ur today; managed to complete Bureaucratic Arts I, get my papers, buy a 50k McMansion, move in, set up my trophies, and eventually get 10 piggies in there! I also learned Gardening I (because it took only 22ish minutes Smiley: grin), and then got back to Better Learning V, which will be done tomorrow night. Then it'll be more Gardening and Croppery, followed by alchemy, refining, and intermediate admixing for potions, and then perhaps tinkering. Finally crafting comes after, and maybe the transmogrification skills.

I have no interest in starting street programs, writing notes, using my eyeballs, fighting off the rook, or levitating, so those will likely be last. Not sure where teleportation will fit in; my mansion is a bit out of the way.

I can't make the hot sauce yet. And I don't really intend to get Saucery II until after I get Remote Herdkeeping.

After that, I'll probably focus on upgrading my house--to both a better location and size. Right now, I'm super far away from any ore, which means I need to teleport to and from mines. That's a serious annoyance...

It does if you get Croppery, doesn't it? I haven't done Croppery yet, but will be once I finish BL 5, and finish my Cooking tree. I have noticed I get about 10-15% failures on watering/picking things. And that 28 plots in the 50k home is pretty nice. I also want to use my Wood Tree to start getting batterfly guano for fertalizing them.

Wait, what? Fertilizer?

And I thought Croppery only gave exp for harvesting?

People seem to like my Earthshakers. Made 50 of them and put them up for auction, they went pretty fast.

Been growing Spinach too, just because I didn't know what sort of vegetables sold, but the Spinach is used for jumping.

Donated up to 1000+ on the three giants for BL5, and sucked about 6 hours off the learning time. Did the same last game day... Still so much time left. 2 days 18 hours.

I wonder how much time I'll be able to drop off of it tomorrow, another 12 hours or if I'll hit the cap soon.

Edit:
Did my first smuggling quest today. Succeeded and got a Diamond.

You will never get more than half the initial amount of time through donating; and I've also heard (but have not confirmed) that if you switch skills during a "speed up" time, you -lose- the sped up time and can no longer donate to speed that skill up again. Not sure if that's true; the only time I've switched skills is when the speed-up time is off (and I never had problems donating again after switching back).

Some people explained in the Global chat the other day that you don't lose the time you earned, but you lose the ability to earn more time.

So if you reduced it 10%, then stopped learning, the started learning again, 10% is the max, you won't be able to reduce it anymore with favor.

This was probably their way of stopping people from "pausing" a maxed out favor boosted skill, then starting it again and trying to get another favor boost from the new time.

I never played Farmville itself, but other facebook games work basically the same way - you build and plant stuff, and can harvest the results after a defined period of time (or make it go faster by spending money), which give you resources that let you build more stuff. There is little to no interaction of anything besides planting and harvesting and building. I have to assume that there's more interaction and active stuff to do (even if there's no combat) in this game?

In that case, no, it's not like Farmville. It does have similar aspects (growing crops in your house; by the way I just harvested a few hundred potatoes this morning), but you have a lot of interaction with the environments and other people.

Say you come to a random street. It has 2 fruit trees, 2 bean trees, a piggie, and a chicken.

Well, f*ck the trees. You poison them all, and replace them with gas trees because you love to make people on the forums rage at how useless gas is (it is pretty useless). Also, you steal the piggy, because you want to take it home. But you feel bad that the chicken is all alone, so you make it hatch a dozen butterfly eggs, grow the butterflies up, and swarm the sky with them.

As a final FU to the street that you obviously hate, you throw random litter all over the ground and set off Sneezing Powder, making everyone on the street attempting to stop your madness burst into uncontrollable sneezes every few seconds.

At lower levels (under 20) you get some currants every time you level. I had maybe 30k by the time I got to my 20s, just through leveling. After that point you only get currants every 5 levels, so it might be worth selling some stuff instead of donating.

I personally don't buy much now that I have my McMansion, but if I need some extra cash I'll squeeze chickens to get music boxes or mine for gems. Both sell well to vendors. If you craft you can sell stuff on the Auction House for decent money as well.
