Pioneer Trail Curse of the Mummy: Everything you need to know


A mysterious package has shown up on your Homestead in Pioneer Trail, and from the looks of things, this package is a massive sarcophagus containing, what else, a mummy! This delivery comes by way of a new goal series called Curse of the Mummy, and we're here with a guide to complete these goals, thanks to Zynga. You'll need to be at least level 20 to access these goals, so if you've already made it that far, you're ready to get started!

Mummy Dearest

  • Place the Sarcophagus

  • Clear 15 Debris

  • Tend 20 Adult Pigs

The debris can be anything from Cacti to Grass, so we'd suggest tending something that you have a ton of on your land so that you don't eliminate something you might need later. For completing this first goal, you'll receive 150 XP, five Ancient Lilies and a Frankenscarecrow. The Ancient Lily is a crop that can be found on the game's free gifts page, and it takes seven hours to harvest.

Mummy Dearest #2

  • Harvest 20 Ancient Lilies

  • Uncurse 5 Mummy Pigs

  • Finish Phase 1 of the Sarcophagus

Again, the Ancient Lilies are found on the game's free gifts page, so make sure to continually check your Gift Box to see if your friends have sent you any since you last checked. As for the Mummy Pigs, you'll find these at random when tending debris, just as you would find an injured critter under other circumstances. Similarly, you'll need to use Uncurse items to actually uncurse these mummy animals, with these items being earned by asking your friends to send them to you. Even after you finish this goal, you'll need more Uncurse items in the future, so make sure to ask for more whenever you get the chance. As for the Sarcophagus, the different "building" phases require you to collect even more items by bugging friends, and you'll even need to craft items like Essence Presses using Essence Jars (ask friends) and Tomato Presses (rarely drops when tending tomatoes). When you complete this goal, you'll receive 250 XP, two Mummy Trees and a Monster Topiary.

Monster Madness

  • Harvest 16 Mummy Trees

  • Uncurse 5 Mummy Sheep

  • Finish Phase 2 of the Sarcophagus

The Mummy Trees are another free gift, and the Mummy Sheep can also be found by tending debris. That makes this goal fairly straightforward, even if it is also time-consuming. For this part of the Sarcophagus, you'll need to collect even more items from friends and craft items like Silver Handcuffs. These Handcuffs require Sterling Chains (ask friends) and Ox Nose Rings (tend oxen), while other ingredients can be found by feeding adult goats or tending Mummy Trees. If you're ever confused about how to earn an item, remember to use the "hint" button next to each for a tip. Complete this goal and you'll receive a Vampire Potion, a Werewolf Potion and a Tough Hand Tonic.

Repair the Sarcophagus

  • Chop Oak Trees 25 Times

  • Find 2 Mummy Collection Items

  • Finish Phase 3 of the Sarcophagus

This third phase of the Sarcophagus requires you to ask your friends for Colorful Gems and Liquid Gold, but the rest will be mostly up to you. You'll need to tend Uncursed Mummy Sheep and Adult Pigs for other ingredients, while also crafting Sparkling Pigments and Sarcophaglue. The Sparkling Pigments are created using Crushed Cherries (tend Cherry Trees), Lapis Lazuli (ask friends), and Dead Sea Salts (ask friends). Meanwhile, a single Sarcophaglue requires four Bonding Agents (ask friends) and four Sticky Juice (tend Pink Roses) to create, so you'll need to make sure to plant some roses and ask your friends for the appropriate materials along the way to not fall behind. When you complete this goal, you'll receive 750 XP, Mummy Trees and a Dragon Goose.

One Yummy Looking Mummy

  • Harvest 40 Mummy Trees

  • Harvest 30 Ancient Lilies

  • Finish the Sarcophagus

This final stage of this Sarcophagus building project sees you collecting items like Khol Mascara and Moaning Boxes directly from requests sent to friends (so start pestering them early), along with tending Uncursed Mummy Pigs and harvesting Beets for some other items. As you might expect, there are also more crafting projects to complete here, as you'll need to craft Mummy Accessories using Pearfume (tend Pear Trees), Spray Bottles (ask friends) and Royal Circlets (ask friends). You'll also need to craft some Mummy Outfits by combining Gold Pins (ask friends), Linen Skirts (ask friends) and Wool Gauze. Adult Sheep will drop Wool Gauze at random, so even if you're not ready for this particular crafting project, make sure you have a ton of Adult Sheep ready to tend on your Homestead. When you complete this final goal, you'll receive 1,000 XP, two Aged Salmon and a Frankenfruit Tree.

On top of all of these goals, there's also a "wrapper" goal of sorts that can be worked on the entire time you're also completing this linear series.

Return to Sender

  • Send the Mummy Back

  • Uncurse 8 Mummy Pigs

  • Uncurse 8 Mummy Sheep

Again, both the Mummy Pigs and Mummy Sheep can be found by tending debris on your Homestead. In order to actually send the Mummy Back, you'll need to complete all of the goals before this, including completing the construction on the Sarcophagus. As all of these tasks are likely going to be very time-consuming, just make sure that you exhaust all of your daily allowed friend requests so that your neighbors can help you as much as they're allowed. Good luck completing this feature before Halloween!
