CastleVille Chinese New Year Quests: Everything you need to know

A new series of quests has launched in CastleVille today in celebration of the Chinese New Year holiday. These quests are given to you by Quinn, the traveling bard, who has come back from the far east with presents for you, if you're willing to earn them. There are just three quests in this Chinese New Year set, and they're not terribly difficult to complete.

Dress Like An Emperor

  • Change your Character's Outfit

  • Visit 3 Neighbors

This quest window might make it seem like you need to purchase a new item of clothing, but that's not the case. Just change your avatar's clothing into something you already own (say, a new top) and you'll finish this one with ease. Finishing this quest gives you 750 coins, 15 XP and a Chinese Bonsai Tree.

Sea Sick

  • Harvest 5 Tomatoes

  • Harvest 5 Carrots

If you have ten plots, you can easily plant both of these at the same time. The Tomatoes take eight hours to grow, while Carrots take just one hour. When you finish this quest, you'll receive 1,000 coins and 20 XP.

Eye Delight

  • Purchase 5 Far East Decor Items

  • Get 5 Wood Logs

As we've told you already, there are plenty of themed Chinese New Year items available to purchase in the store, but don't worry about wasting Crowns as there are plenty available for coins as well. For instance, a single piece of Dragon Fencing or a Chinese Rug cost just 500 coins each. After purchasing five items and chopping trees five times, you'll complete this entire Chinese New Year quest set and will receive 500 coins, 10 XP and the Dragon Head Statue as your reward. Remember the Dragon Head body and Tail pieces that are available to buy in the store? Now it finally has a head!

With that, Quinn disappears just as quickly as he came, but I'm sure he'll be back before we have a chance to really miss him.
