FrontierVille Tools: What Are They For?

We have received dozens and dozens of requests and searches for the scoop on FrontierVille Tools. Here is what we have found so far:

When you help out on a neighbors homestead, you have the option of posting a message to your friends wall, letting them know you stopped by. They can then collect a Tool.

When you hire a neighbor to do chores around your homestead, you also have the option of sending them a Tool notification. However, we recommend you do not send this one, as it wastes valuable time you need to click all the food, bonuses and collection items that quickly pop up. You only have seconds before these goodies start to disappear.

So far, we have found a few instances were we actually need to use these Tools. We expect that many more uses will become apparent as we get further into the game. Here is what we have so far:

1. Tools are used to build a Saw Horse. You will be building one of these during the Craft A Crib quest. The Saw Horse requires 6 planks and 2 tools.

As we find more uses for Tools, we will update this post.

FrontierVille Quest Guide – What You Need To Know To Plan Ahead

FrontierVille Step By Step Quest Guide

Spoiler Alert!

The following post details each FrontierVille quest, allowing you to plan ahead when playing the game. If you do not wish to know what quests lay ahead of you, please do not read

Want to know what lies ahead in FrontierVille? Want to make sure you are stocking the required supplies in order to level up quickly? Then keep reading!

Below you will find a detailed listing of each quest, in the approximate order you will come across it. The order is not 100% exact, as each player will complete the order slightly differently, but this will give you a solid idea of what to expect. These quests are also not Level specific. Leveling is based on the accumulation of experience only, whereas new quests are provided to you based on the completion of previous ones first.

We will update this post as we reach new quests, and when possible have detailed what rewards are earned at each stage. Be sure to bookmark this post in order to check back often for new updates!

Note #1: The first few quests are not included as they are simple tutorials that the game provides, and we did not feel they needed any explanation here.

Note #2: Last updated Aug 21, 2010.

Note #3: Please remember, these are not in the exact order you will see them as each person will complete the order slightly differently. You can only have 4 active quests at any one time so your order may differ from the list below.

Note #4: The developers have been changing and balancing the game often. Some wording may be slightly out of date. I am doing my best to keep everything current but cannot see exact wording on quests already completed.

FrontierVille: How To Make A Wish List

The following tutorial explains how to add certain items to your FrontierVille Wish List. There are slightly different steps to take if you are wanting to add Collection items or to add other consumables, such as Ribbon, Fire, Planks, etc.

To add a Collection item to your Wish List:

1. Click your backpack and select Collections.
2. Make sure you have at least 1 Wish List spot open, as shown in circle #1 below.
3. Find the item you want to add and click the green +sign, as shown in circle #2 below.
4. Your item is now added to your Wish List!



To add a consumable item to your Wish List:

1. You need to have at least 1 of the consumable item you are wanting more of. If you do now own at least 1, you will not be able to add it to your Wish List
2. Click your backpack and select Inventory.
3. Make sure you have at least 1 Wish List spot open, as shown in circle #1 below.
4. Find the item you want to add and click the green +sign, as shown in circle #2 below.
5. Your item is now added to your Wish List!

Note: Unfortunately with consumables, if you do not already have the item in your Inventory, you will be unable to add it to your wish list. Consider asking a good friend or neighbor if you could borrow the item, add it to your list, then send it back to them.

FrontierVille: Send Valuable Building Supplies As Gifts To Your Neighbors

The sending of gifts to your neighbors/friends is a common practice in almost all Facebook games. Gifting within FrontierVille is no different. Similarly, there are some gifts that are much more valuable than others, that may not be apparent when you first start playing.

As I have leveled up higher and higher within FrontierVille, I am seeing that quests require buildings to be completed. These buildings all take an increasing quantity of Wood, easily found around your homestead. Keep this in mind before you chop all of your trees down and spend the Wood on Market decorations. However, each building also takes an increasing amount of building supplies. These supplies are Hammers, Nails, Hand Drills, Bricks and Paint Buckets.

Each FrontierVille player has 2 different building supplies available on their Gifts page. My advice is to gift these to your neighbors on a daily basis. Send these as thank you gifts as well, and hopefully your friends will return the favor. Here is what you will be needing as you build up your FrontierVille town:



Cabin – Frame costs 4 Wood + 42 Wood to build + 1 of each building supplies

General Store – Frame costs 15 Wood + 56 Wood to build + 3 of each building supplies

Barn – Frame costs 12 Wood + 110 Wood to build + 4 of each building supplies

School House – Frame costs 22 Wood + 156 Wood to build + 8 of each building supplies

Inn – Frame costs 25 Wood + 210 Wood to build + 10 of each building supplies


Therefore, as you can see from above, you will be needing at least 26 of each building supply over time. While gifts such as Light Snacks and animals are nice gifts to send, these can be easily purchased in the Market using Food and/or Gold – building supplies cannot. They cost rare horseshoes (FrontierVille’s in-game currency requiring real cash.)

If for some reason you do not wish to gift building supplies to your neighbors, Ribbon also makes a fabulous and valuable gift. Ribbons are needed to craft wedding attire and preparing for your first child.

Everyone will be needing the building supplies eventually, so why not make your friends super happy now and start gifting them right away!

Hot Tip: Building supplies are also giftable via Wish Lists. To place supplies on your Wish List, open your Inventory box and click the + sign under the picture of the supply you wish to add. You need to have at least 1 in your inventory for this tip to work

FrontierVille: Best FrontierVille Crops

Planting crops on your FrontierVille homestead is a valuable way to not only earn gold, but experience and food as well. As in any game, some crops are more valuable than others, but for different reasons. Once you decide if you want to level quickly, build up your gold faster, or stockpile food, use the chart below which details each FrontierVille crop as it is released.

Planting your crops requires no energy, which makes this a great task to complete before you are ready to sign off. Just remember to come back before they wither!

The wither time for a crop is twice what it takes to mature. Therefore, if a crop takes 1 hour to reach maturity, it will take 2 hours to wither after it reaches maturation. Once a crop has withered, you must clear or delete it. Clearing withered crops will not cost energy and you are refunded half the original cost.

It does cost 1 energy to harvest each planted crop. However, you are able to hire 2 neighbors each day to complete tasks around your homestead. Choosing 2 neighbors with a high reputation to harvest your crops for you, is a super way to save energy and still gain all the benefits of the crop being harvested.

Example: If you have a neighbor with a reputation level of 26, you will earn 26 XP for them harvesting crops/trees/animals for you.

FrontierVille Crop Chart

Note: Since you are able to hire neighbors to harvest your crops, we have assumed no energy cost to harvest in the calculations below. Keep this in mind when making your planting decisions.

FrontierVille: Big Rewards From Neighbors Who Help You

The social aspect of Zynga’s newest game FrontierVille, provides big rewards both for the neighbor helping, and the homestead owner. You will definitely want to have as many neighbors as you can. Here is why:

When you visit your FrontierVille neighbors homesteads, you are able to complete up to 5 tasks around their land. This includes harvesting crops, unwithering crops, chopping down trees, clearing land, and feeding animals. As a helper, you are rewarded with gold, experience, collection items and valuable reputation points. The rewards are generous, but don’t feel bad about taking them – FrontierVille rewards the homestead owner you are helping too!

If a neighbor has visited your homestead to help, you will see them standing somewhere on your land, and the work they have done will be highlighted in blue, such as seen below:


Click on your friends avatar and you will be given the option of accepting their help:



Once you accept their help, you will then see them walk around your land completing up to 5 tasks. All of the energy, loot, experience, and collection items they found, will also start popping onto the ground for you to collect! Make sure you collect it quickly, as if left too long, the rewards disappear.

This super feature of the game provides you with a nice little energy, gold, experience, and collection item boost, at any time during the day, without you even having to be online playing – simply collect the rewards once you log in!

FrontierVille: The Wilderness Arrives On Facebook!

The wilderness has arrived and it’s time to stake your claim with the latest social media game release from Zynga, FrontierVille!

Just released yesterday, June 9th, FrontierVille kicks off with a ton of content and activities to keep you entertained for as much, or as little time as you wish. Although being plagued by quite a few new release teething issues, it certainly looks promising. We struggled with connection issues, but when we were able to access the game, we really enjoyed our time playing.

The game centers around a wilderness frontier theme, where you are given the task of staking your claim, building your homestead, and eventually your own frontier town. There are plenty of activities and quests to keep you busy! Be sure to keep your eyes out for rattlesnakes, bears, and gophers!

Here are just a few of the game features:

  • Farming crops and animals
  • Crafting tools and supplies
  • Assemble buildings
  • Clearing your land
  • Quests/Tasks
  • Helping neighbor rewards
  • Bonuses for quick claiming of rewards

A group of tasks provides each FrontierVille player with the chance to earn gold, wood, experience, food, and/or reputation. You can also be lucky enough to find bonus collection items, for even more goodies. Some tasks, such as chopping down a tree, will earn you wood and experience, whereas others such as helping out on your neighbors land will earn you experience, food, gold and reputation.

There are plenty of features already released in FrontierVille, as our new section dedicated to the game here on, will provide you with the details, tips and tricks you will want to level up fast.
