CastleVille 'Naughty Gnomes' Quests: Everything you need to know


While gnomes might normally be calm and gentle creatures, something has gone wrong in CastleVille, as Faugrimm has cursed a group of gnomes that is now behaving rather badly in your Kingdom. There are eight new quests in a "Naughty Gnome" series that will see you helping these Gnomes return to their usual, kind selves, and we're here with a guide to helping you finish them off, thanks to Zynga. Let's get started!

A Taste of Disaster

  • Explore the Land

  • Have 3 Gnome Lanterns

  • Collect 1 Blue Quartz Egg

The Gnome Lanterns are earned by posting a general requests to your news feed, while the Blue Quartz Egg is earned through a general request sent directly to one of your neighbors. Finally, the land is found to the Southeast of the Mage Academy Greenhouse, and it can be explored using 200 Castle Level, one Exploration Crystal, and 5,000 coins. When you finish this first quest, you'll receive 3,250 coins and 65 XP.

Open and Shut Case!

  • Open the Door of the Main Gnome Burrow

  • Tax 5 Houses

  • Free 2 Gnomes

The Main Gnome Burrow can be opened by collecting 10 Stones, 10 Wood Logs, and three Terra Keys. These keys are earned by posting another general news post onto your wall, asking for help. When you start collecting from homes, Gnomes will appear just as Beasties do elsewhere in your Kingdom.

You'll be able to free two Gnomes from their curse by casting the "Revert to Reason" Spell, a pink Spirit spell that requires Blue Quartz Eggs, Honey, Milk, and Grapes to create and cast. Finishing this second quest gives you another 3,250 coins and 65 XP.

Soothing Effects

  • Feed 5 Cows

  • Clear Purple Moss from 2 Rocks

  • Craft 4 Animal Treats

There are moss-covered rocks in this new piece of land that you'll expand into, and the Moss can be removed by collecting Charmstones. Charmstones can be earned by casting spells on items like Cupids and Gremlins, as well as these new Gnomes that appear in your Kingdom. You'll need eight Charmstones in total to clear the two Purple Moss rocks. When you complete this quest, you'll receive 3,250 coins and 65 XP.

A Sticky Situation

  • Craft and Use 3 Purging Talismans

  • Craft 2 Revert to Reason Spells

The Purging Talismans are created using Charmstones, Pails or Water and more. These are used to remove "Gloom Gloop" from many of the items inside this Gnome Burrow land expansion. Each item may require a different amount of Talismans, depending on its size, but a single "Trapped Log" requires the three that you need to finish this quest.

When you finish this quest, you'll have reached the halfway point in this series, and you'll receive 3,250 coins and 65 XP for finishing it.

The Gnome Burrow can be cleaned using six Gnome Lanterns, three Xtra Strong Cleansers, and three Workbenches. The Gnome Lanterns are earned by posting a general request to your news feed for help, while the Xtra Strong Cleansers are created inside the Studio using items like Sticks of Butter, Rubber Gloves, and Slime Dissolvers. The Slime Dissolvers themselves are created inside the Kitchen by combining items like Milk and Seashells. You'll receive another 3,250 coins and 65 XP for finishing this quest.

Show of Strength
