While most CastleVille players have left Land's End behind after finishing the Tale of Two Pirates quests, but it's time to head back there once again to meet Jacques and his ... new fiancee? Apparently, things are going quite well for Jacques, and we'll be able to see just how well via a new nine-part quest series called "A Pirate's Tail." Let's get started!
Travel to Land's End
Click on Melody
Melody is Jacques' "Mermaid Bride of the Sea," so you'll find her sitting atop some rocks in the water. You'll receive 1,000 coins, 20 XP and a Pirate Stew for completing this quest!
Gather 2 Ship Supplies from the Santa Lucia
Chop 5 Palm Trees in Land's End
Use the Energy Distiller 1 Time
You'll be able to use the Pirate Stew you received in the last quest to activate the Energy Distiller, making this quest easier than it might initially seem. You'll earn 1,000 coins and 20 XP for finishing this quest.
No Place Like Home
Have 3 Sounds of Home
Collect 3 Bamboo Stems
Finish Building the Bedroom on Land's End
The Sounds of Home are shells that can be earned by posting a general request to your news feed. Meanwhile, the new Bedroom is found on the coast in Land's End, and it requires building materials to complete: 2 Seaweed Linens, 8 Ship Supplies, 8 Wood Planks and two Candles. The Ship Supplies are earned by repeatedly collecting from the Santa Lucia, but the other three items can be crafted back in your home Kingdom. Technically, you can also ask your friends for the Wood Planks, but that's entirely up to you. You'll earn a Hyper Craft, 1,500 coins and 30 XP when you complete this quest.
Go Fishing in 2 Tidal Pools
Tend 5 Tropical Flowers
Craft 1 Pirate Stew
Rewards: 1,000 coins and 20 XP
Room to Grow
Have 6 Starfish
Collect 10 Ship Supplies
Finish Building the Splash Room
The Starfish are earned via another news item posted to your wall. The Splash Room, as you might have expected, requires more building materials to complete: 8 Coral, 10 Ship Supplies, 3 Fasteners and 10 Bamboo Stems. You can ask your friends for the Coral, but all three of the other items are earned through other means. You'll receive 1,500 coins and 30 XP when you complete this quest.
When Crocs Attack
Banish 2 Gloom Crocs
Clear 5 Tropical Ferns
Craft 1 Pirate Stew
Rewards: Strong Energy Potion, 1,750 coins, 35 XP
Song of the Sea
Have 5 Fish Nets
Craft 3 Starfish Casseroles
Build the Island Kitchen
The Fish Nets are earned via yet another news post on your wall. While you're waiting for those to arrive, you can build the Island Kitchen using 3 Starfish Casserole, 15 Ship Supplies, 3 Brick Ovens and 2 Knives. None of these items can be directly earned by asking friends, with three of the four requiring you to craft them in your home Kingdom. Completing this quest gives you 1,750 coins and 35 XP.
Collect 5 Bottles of Milk
Tend 3 Goats
Gather 5 Ship Supplies
Rewards: 1,000 coins, 20 XP
Dining in Style
Craft 2 Candles
Chop 5 Palm Trees
Finish the Dining Room
To complete this final quest in the series, you'll need to craft one more building in Land's End, with the Dining Room requiring 3 Chandeliers, 15 Ship Supplies, 5 Steel Bars and 1 Angle Finder. Needless to say, this has the potential to be an incredibly time consuming quest series, depending on your own dedication to completing it and how many materials you have on hand to craft all of these buildings' required materials. When you finish this final quest, you'll receive plenty of rewards: 1,750 coins, 35 XP, Island Bedroom, Island Cookery, Splash Spa and the Dining Table, which can, in theory, be placed back in your Kingdom as decorations.
Melody has her own set of quests to complete in CastleVille as well, and we'll bring you a guide to finishing those off just as soon as we can. Stay tuned!
