FarmVille Master Motto: Earn bonus items for paying up (again)


As if FarmVille's Jade Falls expansion didn't already have the potential to be expensive enough, what with the cost to even get into the farm early and the cost to unlock the Imperial Shipyard / Forbidden Coast early, yet another mini-expansion has come to the game's newest farm, offering you a chance to receive bonus building materials, a Monkey King animal and earn the ability to complete a series of "Exclusive Motto Training Tasks."

This expansion is called simply "Master Motto," and it costs 20 Farm Cash to access. That may be less than $5 US, but when you add it to the other early access prices, Jade Falls has now become rather expensive. Either way, if you choose to pay to access Master Motto content early, you'll receive a free Monkey King animal, 12 parts for your Imperial Shipyard and 20 parts that will allow you to complete other things in Jade Falls, whether that be building animal structures, uncovering fortunes or otherwise.

In addition, you'll be able to complete a series of 12 tasks, similar to those given by Master Lu, to receive free bonus materials, ZP and more along the way. These tasks are currently only available for users that pay the 20 Farm Cash to access them. Here's a guide to finishing them off.

Again, these quests are only available to complete by those that purchase early access to the Motto expansion in Jade Falls, but Zynga's official wording doesn't really make it clear as to whether or not they'll be available to everyone eventually for free (we're assuming they will be, and will update this space when we can confirm that). If you do decide to purchase access early, remember that these quests are timed and have time limits between them, so you can't quickly finish them all off without paying even more Farm Cash to do so.

What do you think of this Motto expansion in FarmVille's Jade Falls? Will you purchase early access for 20 Farm Cash, or will you wait to see if these tasks eventually do roll out to everyone for free? Let us know in the comments!
