FarmVille Lighthouse Cove Pirate Bonus Goals: Everything you need to know


As we told you last night, the next set of Lighthouse Cove goals in FarmVille will continue in the spirit of Halloween, but will transition from ghosts to Pirates on the high seas. After you've completed the three basic Pirate Goals - check out our guide to doing just that - you'll be able to move onto three harder Bonus Challenges, according to the folks at FVNation. Here, the goals will reward you with a few themed items (animals and decorations), but they'll also require you to do plenty of recipe crafting, plenty of farming and more, all within a very short time limit. Here's your guide for what to expect.

Bonus Challenge 1

  • Get Creamed Corn to Level 20

  • Harvest 110 Daylilies

  • Harvest Lighthouse Cove

Daylilies take 16 hours to grow. In that time, you'll need to be working on your Cream Corn recipe (unless you're lucky enough to have reached this milestone ahead of time). Each individual Creamed Corn requires three Butter & Sugar Corn, three Tarragon and one Pepper Bushels. Since these goals haven't technically launched yet, and as you'll need to complete the first three Pirate Goals anyway, you still have some time to work on this before you're actually required to, which is a smart idea. For finishing this first Bonus Challenge goal, you'll receive 500 XP, a spooky, plant-covered Tombstone decoration, and 2,500 coins.

Bonus Challenge 2

  • Achieve Level 1 Mastery of Butter & Sugar Corn

  • Improve the Cove to Level 7

  • Make Jonny Cakes 4 Times

Butter & Sugar Corn takes 12 hours to grow, and the first star of mastery is earned at 425 harvests (if you don't have it already). Jonny Cakes are crafted inside the Restaurant using two Butter & Sugar Corn, two Rye and two Daylily bushels each. Finishing this second bonus goal gives you 1,000 XP, 2,500 coins and a long-tailed Duck (the exact name might be different).

Bonus Challenge 3

  • Harvest an Aviary

  • Harvest 110 Dill

  • Harvest one Orchard

If you haven't built an Aviary on your Lighthouse Cove, here's our guide to doing so. Meanwhile, Dill takes 12 hours to grow. For completing this final Bonus Challenge, you'll receive 500 XP, 2,500 coins and a Pirate Sheep. Plus, you'll also walk away with the satisfaction of knowing that you completed all three Bonus Challenges, which is sometimes a prize in and of itself.

Remember, you'll only have a matter of days to complete these goals once they launch in your game, so you'll want to do as much as you can before they arrive to prepare. Make sure to start crafting Cream Corn to level it up, or even expand your cove to hold more crops at once. How far you go will be up to you, but we wish you luck regardless.
