FarmVille Lighthouse Cove Ghost Goals: Everything you need to know

If you're looking at getting a head start on the next batch of Lighthouse Cove goals in FarmVille, then we've put together a guide on what you'll need to complete once this newest trio of goals launches in the game. According to FarmVille Freak, these three goals are Halloween in theme, and will reward you with some fun items to match. Let's get started.

A Spooky Season!

  • Get 3 Halloween Masks

  • Harvest Lighthouse Cove

  • Harvest 100 Hay

Hay takes a full day to harvest, so if you've got empty plots on your Lighthouse Cove farm, or are about to harvest something, I'd suggest going ahead and planting that Hay. That way, when these goals launch in your game, you'll have Hay ready to harvest automatically, saving you time. Finishing this first goal will likely be time consuming, depending on how far (or not) you've expanded your Lighthouse Cove farm, but once you finish it you'll receive 100XP, 2,500 coins and a Trick or Treat Bear.

Ghost of a Chance

  • Get 3 Lollipops

  • Harvest 110 Red Clover

  • Harvest 1 Orchard

Again, Red Clover has a 24 hour growth time, so while you can't necessarily plan for both of these crops ahead of time (due the plot limitation in Lighthouse Cove), you can always plant them right after you finish the Hay requirement, if you've yet to finish the first goal overall. Also, if you have an Orchard that you're growing, make sure to not harvest it again until you get to this goal. Sure, you could harvest it right now, but what if you pass the first goal so quickly that you're then left waiting one or two days for the Orchard to become ready again? You need all of the time you can get in these goals, so feel free to follow our advice. When you finish this goal, you'll receive 200XP, 2,500 coins and an Innkeeper Gnome.

Ghost Hunting

  • Get 6 Flashlights

  • Make Farmhouse Cheddar Twice

  • Harvest 110 Tarragon

Regardless of how far you've leveled up Farmhouse Cheddar in your restaurant, you'll need to craft it at least twice more for this goal. That requires two Red Clover, one Hay and two Tarragon bushels each. Meanwhile, Tarragon itself takes 10 hours to grow. For finishing this third goal, you're given 300XP a Shipwreck decoration and another 2,500 coins.

With these goals, there's no question that things are getting harder in Lighthouse Cove - perhaps even too hard. While one could speculate that these high crop requirements mean that more coin options for expansions will also be coming, I wouldn't be shocked if it turns out not to be the case. We'll make sure to let you know when and if these goals become easier, so keep checking back.
