Light-bulbZynga strikes again - high XP is more impossible than ever - now need glass for pig cookie jar

Please_share
by Sharon Quarrington - Jun 21, 2014 Star_s7,723 views

One way to quickly get xp was to collect mud and make porcelin and pottery slips and then craft cookie jars. Pig cookie jars gave a lot of xp and only cost a few mud and 3 energy. When you need to earn 300000 xp to level up this really helped - expecially if I collected ingredients and waited to double up.

Guess what - the recipe changed.

Zynga seems determined to really make leveling up so hard once you get past 80 - I was hoping to get to level 100 but it seems almost impossible.

Anyone got a new xp strategy that will help?

Update: Zynga is now dropping the xp given for animals - prized animals that once gave 150 xp are giving 15. Harvesting a prize pig shed with speed feed once gave me nearly 6000 xp today it is less than 200.

I agree with those that say it is time to quit. Three times...I have said that I would quit but then did not. Neighbors...that no longer play...can be a source of sprinkler water. The new trees require so much water, which makes the 100 water well simply is not enough. As for those that buy pixels for real money...donate to some charity instead of buying some lines of code.

I'm at level 72 and find it extremely hard to fill orders and help people in my co-op, Merciai's. I'm constantly running out of water and fertilizer and the numbers and quantities on the order board are ridiculous. I've dropped way more orders then filled. Frankly this game has become depressing instead of fun. Expansion is almost a dream rather than a reality. Unless you buy a bunch of farm bucks you're in trouble. I refuse to do so anymore.

Haven same problem. If they continue I will just quit playing...

Well - I found out why my XP requirement dropped - my animals are now worthless for xp - prized shed are giving less than 200 xp. Feeding an animal now gets me 8 to 15 xp - seriously Zynga this is not funny.

So far they have not dropped the crafting xp so I can still make a bunch of vases at double xp but instead of taking less time with the lower xp it is taking longer.... I thought I was just not paying attention but I got to within 6000 xp of levelling up and all my prized sheds were ready - that should have given me about 10000 xp but instead it was 500 - AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Kathy - use your sheds while you can!

I'm seriously considering growing crops that return alot feed for my animals. With the ability to make superfeed I love using it on my sheds. I get over 4,000 exp whem I use superfeed on each of my sheds.

I wondered why it was taking me so long to level up. Higher XP crops are now only giving 20xp on harvesting. The amount of XP I need on my farm keeps going up, has not gone down any at all. I see people leveling every couple of days and I'm stuck on the same level for 3 weeks or more. I used to be able to level about once every 4 days. I don't want to cheat to level, but there are so many land expansions that I feel are out of my reach. I really don't want to spend the majority of my day, every day, playing this one game. The only incentive I see to visiting my neighbors is to get water. How long before that dries up too?? Maybe it's time for me to quit.

They haven't dropped my xp's to level up still need 600,000 to get to next level!!

Hey guys - Zynga just dropped the xp requirements to level up. The new requirement is less than 1/3 the old one - that will help a lot. Thanks to all your tips it will only take me a few days to level up instead of a few weeks.

Now if they can just adjust the order board to sensible ranges.

Debby - they said that if you buy one they will give you 1 farm bucks a day for 600 days - so it takes nearly a year before you get all of the 200 back that you spent - if you got 300 all at once then that is more than they promised.

The best tip I have for leveling up is a glitch - not a cheat.

When you are close to leveling up plant some groves with a high xp crop and fertilize but DO NOT harvest. Get as close as you can to the level (within 25 xp) then close all your other windows.

Click on the grove and you will see the leveling up pop up and immediately close your browser using the x in the upper right corner.

Restart your browser and restart the game - you will have the same xp and the same unharvested field but will be one level up.

You can repeat this a few times before returning to normal play.

It will still take forever to get to level up but then you can move through a few levels al at once.

Mandy- You are right about the animals in the sheds! The chicken coop with the polish chickens used to give 2700 when fed normally and 8100 when used with speed feed. I have tried twice since yesterday to speed feed (and as each go takes 9 I have wasted 18 speed feed) and it is just giving 2700, so no benefit from speed feeding at all !!!

Picture?type=square

Mandy - that's awful so unfair...

Julie - the trick with the order board is to refuse all but simple orders - I'm over level 100 now and only do orders with 10 items or less- and only one item per order. Like you I delete far more than I do but generally I can complete the orders with a day or two to spare. I do make pepper potatoes all the time... but only do orders with 8 or less. I keep asking for salt too - and then make brie when I get some. Ditch anything with 2 orders or more than 10 items and see if it works. If they up it any more I will just skip this in the future - just not worth it.

Wow - that's amazing. Thanks for sharing.

I have a chicken coop full of polish chicken ,on speed feed you get 8100.

they have lowered the xp on the prized animals now ,I was filling the buildings with high xp animals ,saving super feed to get xp ,now the goat shelter that was giving me 5400 now only gives 1800 ,the goats have gone from 450 to 150 xp so gonna take even longer to level up now

The difficulty of the order board increases as you level goes up. I am on level 98 and to complete 1 order I have to have 100's of items. 278 peppered mash potatoes!!! 140 brie !! Think of how many pepper and salt are needed. I now delete far more than I do. Anything with salt, pepper or over 100 items I get rid of and wait for something else.

Someone mentioned the order board being difficult to complete. I am only level 42 and was making goods and soon as I had the stuff. Now I hoard it all, even at level 40 it takes forever to level up so I am working on the "thumbs up" to get special items and only using the goods needed to complete missions and to expand. For instance at this moment combined I have like 500 different mushrooms, over 1000 feathers, a couple thousand fruits and the items that don't have to be sold once you make them. When the new orders come in I almost always have enough on stock to complete 6-8 doing nothing. 3-4 needed to plant a few items or needed to request for friends. The last two weeks I have gotten 15 or more done in two days..

I don't worry about leveling up quickly unless I'm right at the place where I'm about to level up and want to get it over with.

The lizard vase works well for XP.

I just play regularly one way is to make sure your animal storage buildings are filled with high xp animals also when having to speed feed animal buildings for a quest empty them until you just need 1 speed feed it will save the speed feeds and fulfill the quest, then refill with high xp like limited animal or the ones won from a quest . I am fixing to level up to 89 and it is taking me 2-3 weeks to level up if I can work on it winning the county fair helps. I just wish the expansions were not so much coins. and our storage for needed Items like pepper and salt were expanded

Rhonda = that works well. Thanks for the tip.

Cap - it]s not really exponential.... but the requirements do go up!

All tips for increasing xp quickly are welcome here ;)
