Ridiculous Goals

Water 53 of a certain tree? Okay, did that. Then what took it's place was to harvest 50 of a different tree that takes 12 hours! On top of that, I have to raise 3 of these, 4 of those, 11 of something else. Don't even know why I bother anymore. Game is getting to be more stressful than fun. Now I see why so many are quitting.

    That's what speed grows and zfriends from whom to ask for baby bottles are for.

    Watering trees is easy if you have some elder trees in your inventory and a 10 minute water certificate. Take the trees out of inventory, water them and put them back into inventory. Repeat the process until you've watered enough for the task.

    In addition to @Susy Elizabeth suggestion of speed grow and zfriends, don't forget you have farmhands and family to help you. There's also Helping Hands.

    @nige1875 also has a great suggestion of deciding if you want the reward or not and doing only the things that are enjoyable to you.

    @nwade99 I hope the intention of my post is coming through. I want to cheer you on and encourage you to enjoy the game.

    I agree with everything you said.

    Yeah, practically don't do any quests anymore because of high demands. But I like that watering trick QC!! Must have missed that one! But it's the harvesting one that stinks. I used to just put everything in front and Neighbors used to visit each other during impossible quests and help out, but seems we don't do that anymore.

    As said above I only do the quest now if the prize at the end justifies the time and effort and 9/10 it doesn't, I just do the weekly quest now. Give it a few months and they will be churning out the same old Xmas village yet again with the again hard task levels to do just to enter a snowy village with not much rewards going for it.

    Same, I look through the rewards first, see if it is something I want, then decide if the tasks are worth it, if not, just ignore it. A lot of quests are being ignored.

    I pretty much only do the quests that involve a level up certificate as a reward since that is the only way I can level up most of the time now. I used to stress myself out over trying to do all of the quests but, as someone pointed out (can't remember who exactly), it's a game and it should be enjoyable! I've been playing since day one and, yes, it's got it's quirks and glitches but I still love this game. Learning to use the inbox efficiently was honestly a game changer for me. I think back now to the several years I wasted all of the water, fertilizer and baby bottles! UGH!

    Has anyone noticed how stuff doubles up in the quests? You have to get 4 of something, you do 3, come back later and the amount has changed to 8. it is very frustrating. Happens with everything.
