I obtained a pet, but it’s nowhere to be found

Please make sure you have built a Pet Corral. If you have one, make sure you have free space in it. You gain one free space per upgrade until maximum, at which point you can purchase extra during special offers.

Where did the pet’s costume go?

Costumes and accessories for pets are temporary and run out over time.

Does the game require internet connection, or I can play offline?

You can play this game both online and offline, though the “Contact Support” button won’t be active offline.

Also we recommend to connect to internet from time to time in order to update the game, participate in the tournaments, get new seasonal adventures, see special offers and save your progress.

How do I participate in a tournament?

Tournaments allow you to charge the items and receive various rewards based on how many points you earn and how many leagues you advance through.

Tournaments are available:

  • to all players level 15 and up;
  • when they are active (they usually come hand in hand with the events and reset every week, but there can be breaks between them);
  • if the player is connected to the internet;
  • if the game is updated to the latest version.

To participate in a tournament you need to tap the podium icon in the lower right part of the screen, choose a name, and start charging items.

After the items in the list are charged you need to wait until list refreshes, or alternatively use crystals to refresh it immediately.

If you are sure that you meet all the requirements above, but the tournament icon still doesn’t appear in your game please submit a request and tell us about that.

How can I visit other farms?

Unfortunately it is not possible to visit other farms at the moment.

How can I delete a friend?

In order to delete friends in game you need to unfriend them in Facebook.

How do I gain experience and level up in the game?

You can level up if you get enough experience points. Upon leveling up you unlock new items in the shop, territories, quests and even get rewards.

There are many ways to get experience points in the game:

  • complete different quests;
  • gather crops, water, fruit etc or cut the trees;
  • clean your territories from the weeds;
  • upgrade the buildings;
  • just about any activity in the game may give you experience points!

You can find your experience bar in the upper left corner of the screen. It displays your level, as well as percentage of experience you gathered towards the next one. You can tap this bar, if you want to know more detailed information about the experience you gathered already, or how much of it you need towards the next level.

How do I unlock additional territories?

As you play through the game new territories will become available for the in-game purchase. You need to meet one or more of the following requirements in order to open each territory:

  • gain certain game level;
  • complete certain questchain;
  • save certain amount of coins or crystals.

So if a territory is not available yet, don’t panic, you just need to keep playing for now.

If territory is available for purchase a special icon with wooden arrows appears over it. Tapping it will tell you the requirements. Upon fulfilling the requirements territory is yours to build on as you please.

What are the events and quests?

Quests need to be completed to find out what happens further down the storyline, get experience points, crystals and other resources, as well as open other interesting possibilities of the game.

You can find available quests on the left side of the screen, in a form of square icons with different objects and characters depicted on them.

There are different kinds of quests:

1) Story quests.

These quests advance game’s storyline, unlocking new characters and important aspects of the game.

2) Repeating quests.

The quests with crafting items and selling farming goods appear multiple times, letting you gather more experience and coins.

3) Special quests.

These quests are often distributed through special offers. They contain unique premium rewards, that are given upon completion.

4) Event quests.

These quests tell you the story of the currently running event and often supply you with the things you need to complete the event. Event quests can be distinguished from every other type of quests as they have a purple background.

Events are large scale activities, lasting usually one or two weeks. While they are on you can discover something new about world of Farmdale, as well as obtain unique and interesting rewards. Participating in the event involves a few simple steps:

  • complete event quests that will teach you how each particular event works;
  • start gathering special event currency through completing special event activities that may vary from event to event;
  • exchange currency for different rewards in the event shop. Event shop can be accessed by pressing round icon on the right side of the screen.

Be sure to exchange all the currency before the event is over, after the event is over the shop will close.

How can I choose my nickname in the game?

You have to choose a nickname when you take part in the tournament for the first time (as soon as you reach level 20). You will see the chosen nickname in the leaderboards, but you won’t be able to create a new name for each new tournament, so choose wisely ๐Ÿ™‚

Also you are assigned with a special ID after you install the game, which is your games’ Secret Words. You can find your Secret Words if you open the social menu (icon with two people on it, at the bottom right corner of the game screen)

What is a Regular Bonus and how to get one?

Regular Bonus is a bonus that arrives after certain time intervals. In Farmdale, there are two kinds of bonus:

  • two balloons, one small and one big. Big one arrives at your farm every 24 hours, while small only takes 8 hours to get to you. Both give you crystals and energy. Additionally you can find pet costumes in the small balloon and Dale Seals, Royal Seals, pet food and scroll canvas in the big balloon.
  • Leprechaun that visits your farm every 24 hours to give you some coins.

Where do I find Seals?

The seals help you expand the territory of your farm.

Dale Seals:

Dale seals are given as rewards from the balloons that regularly fly to your farm.
