FarmVille Freak Prize Pig Guide
Posted on October 16, 2012 2:44 am by FarmVille Freak FarmGoddess
We are bumping this post because some of you FarmVille Freaks asked for the guide.
The prized Pigs are here in FarmVille! Now, that everyone should have the Prize Pig feature we’ve put together this handy guide to help fill you on this new FarmVille feature.
The Prize Pig feature allows you to work together with your FarmVille neighbors to grow and feed special Prize Pigs so that you can unlock new exclusive pigs and gain some rewards such as new exclusive pigs in the process.
Note, this feature does not involve all FarmVille Pigs. No, sir. It takes a special kind of pig to be considered for the Prize Pig title, so you won’t be able to use your regular old FarmVille pigs with this feature. Every farmer will receive at least one free pig, the Magnificent Pig, to get started in their Prize Pig endeavors.
To get started place the Prize Pig Scale on your FarmVille farm. You can find it in your Gift Box or in the FarmVille Market where you can scoop it up for free (or a few Farm Coins). You can only have one Prize Pig feature across all your FarmVille farms. There’s no construction on this feature, so once it’s placed on your farm you’re ready to roll.
The Prize Pig Scale comes with one free pig to get you started. You don’t have to place your Prize Pigs in a FarmVille animal pen. They can be placed anywhere on your farm. For starters you will be able to place up to three Piglets on your farm. If you want to grow more right away, you’ll have to ante up and pay 25 Farm Cash to do so which will unlock the ability to grow more pigs at one time. Remember, you can naturally unlock the ability to raise more pigs at one time just by leveling-up this feature and honing your pig growing skills.
Growing Your Pig with Pig Chow
The purpose of this feature is to raise and feed your very own Prize Piglet into a thriving, healthy, and huge Prize Pig. The catch is that you will have to beat the clock and feed your piglet as much as possible in the time frame of just 7 days. Once you’ve fed your Piglet 100 Pig Chows (a new type of food especially for Prize Pigs) or the 7 days comes to an end- you will be able to weigh your Pig and win prizes! Pigs can be weighed when whichever of these happens first- either feeding your Pig 100 Pig Chows or at the end of 7 days.
Getting Pig Chow
Getting Pig Chow for your Prize Pig can speed up the process of waiting the seven days to weigh your pig. You can try to get as much Pig Chow as possible in one week. Pig Chow can be obtained several ways which are listed below.-Post a Request for Pig Chow to your Facebook News Feed (once every 8 hours).
- Remind your pig-raising partner to feed your shared pig (this will post a message on your partner’s wall with a Pig Chow)
- Clicking on a friend’s feed from the Facebook News Feed
- Craft Pig Chow in your Craftshop (Pig Chow Recipe requires Parsnip, Wheat, Sorghum bushels)
- Purchase Pig Chow with Farm Cash
Pig Chow that you collect will go to your FarmVille Gift Box.
Growing Pigs with Friends
You can speed up the process of raising a Prize Pig if you recruit the help of friends. You have the option to chose a a friend to help you grow your Prize Pig. Simply mouseover your piglet and click on the blue “Add Friend” button. Once you click the button, you will see an option to choose a FarmVille friend that you will be able to send a help request to. Once a friend has accepted your request for help, you will be able to see their profile picture when you hover over your Prize Pig Scale.
Any requests for help that you send will be displayed in the Prize Pig feature, not the FarmVille inbox.There is also a “Requests” tab which is located when viewing inside the Prize Pig feature. This keeps track of your Prize Pig relates requests.
Once your friend accepts this request, the two of you can then work together to supply the Pig with as much feed as you can before time runs out. Any Pig Chow that either of you gives to the Pig will count toward growing him.
Weighing Your Prize Pig & Getting Rewarded with Prizes!
Whenever your Prize Pig is fully grown up and ready for the weigh-in, you will be able to collect your prize. After weighing in your pig, you will see a final weight displayed along with at least three prizes that you can win for growing your Pig. The prizes include consumables that you can use on your FarmVille farm such as Unwither, Turbo Chargers, etc.) and there will also be exclusive collectible items that you will only be able to obtain through the Prize Pig feature (this is what makes them exclusive). If you’ve partnered up with a friend to grow up your Prize Pig- you both get prizes!
Once the weigh-in is complete, you will free up a space to grow a new pig.
Unlock Mystery Prize Pigs
At first, you will only be able to grow up to three pigs at once. As you grow more and more pigs, you will be able to unlock additional growing space for more pigs.
There are four different varieties of Prize Pigs which include the following:
- Magnificent Pigs
- Noble Pigs
- Fabulous Pigs
- Majestic Pigs
Each variety of pigs has five different collectible Mystery Pigs within that variety. For example, there are five types of Magnificent Pigs, 5 types of Noble Pigs, and so on.
New types of Prize Pigs can be purchased only through the Prize Pig feature by clicking on the “Pig Market” feature. Whenever you purchase a new pig, it will first appear on your farm in its infant state. Once it’s fed it will eventually become one of the five different collectible Mystery Pigs within that Prize Pig variety.
