Tips and Strategies
Rack up on coins: As you’re no doubt well aware, coins make the world go ’round when it comes to Farmville and free-to-play games in general. Your main goal in Farmville 2: Country Escape is to earn as many as you can (as well as experience). The best way to get coins and experience is to check out the “Farm Orders” board, where you can sell harvested items and crafted items for coins. This is the quickest and easiest way to earn coins, and also the most straightforward. You can also sell your goods to farmers and change your selling price to earn more coins than you would get by selling via the board. Sales aren’t guaranteed, but there are enough players online in Farmville 2 that there’s a safe bet you’ll make a return profit in a couple of hours. Your patience pays!
Unlock keys to progress: Keys are an extremely important resource that allow you to speed things up. If you need wheat to grow faster or a cow to produce milk quicker, you can use a key to accomplish this. Watch for sales to pick up a ridiculous amount of keys (one particular sale ran for 1,500 keys for $10) and it speeds the game up considerably. While you can enjoy the game without buying keys, they do make the game a lot simpler. Keep in mind that if you start a new game and are asked by the tutorials to spend keys to speed things along, you do not have to do so. You can save keys by just waiting things out instead.
Collect free resources quickly: Grandma in real life can always be counted on to brighten your day, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t use Grandma’s Glade for resources in-game. Every 15 minutes you can head over for some pretty useful resources like berries, XP, nails, and more. Use more farm hands to gain more resources, and stay on it. You’ll be swimming in items in no time.
Work for Eagle Eye Eddie: Once you hit Level 16 (which you should fairly quickly), you’ll be able to provide Eddie in the hangar beside the gas station with special items that he needs. You’ll get stamps and experience points in return, and these plane trips will recycle in four hours from Eddie’s departure. If you have enough keys, you can call him back ASAP for mega experience boosts.
Upgrade buildings for maximum production: Upgrade your buildings and structures to create double batches and lessen your wait time. While you’ll need more supplies to finish each job, upgrades give you increased production time. You’ll have to use keys to do this, but you’ll benefit in such a way that it won’t matter so much anymore since your production time will be absolutely smokin’.
Play nice with neighbors: Adding friends you know is always a good move, but adding farm neighbors is a great way to rack up additional farmhands and ways to collect additional ways to speed up crop growth and other tasks. They’re earned when Facebook friends send them your way, and while you can only hang onto a few at a time, they’re always useful.
Utilize farm hands successfully: If you’re able to, use the maximum amount of farm hands you can to set out and search locations that seem lucrative. If you need a specific item, send all your farm hands to search one area that may be the best place to find it. That way, you can complete searches quickly and come away with the resources that you need.
