FarmVille Freak Guide: Water Wheel Building
Posted on July 1, 2011 9:11 pm by FarmVille Freak FarmGoddess
FarmVille is slowly rolling out the new Water Wheel constructible building to farmers. We’ve been seeing teasers of this new building for quite awhile so we’re happy to finally see it become available. If you don’t have access yet, hold tight as you soon will.
The Water Wheel is a new building that is constructible using the new supplies (Axles, Gears, and Ropes) found on the FarmVille Gifting Page. Even more good news- this building serves a purpose! FarmVille Arborist enthusiasts are sure to appreciate the functionality of this building as it produces Water for thirsty Mystery Seedlings.
In response to the FarmVille drought, Zynga has given farmers yet another way to collect Watering Cans with the Water Wheel building. Each time you harvest your Water Wheel building, you will receive Watering Cans. The amount of Watering Cans yielded in your daily harvest depends on the size of your Watering Wheel.
After this update is made available on your farm, you will be greeted with the pop-up shown above. You will automatically enter into Placement Mode in which you can place your Watering Wheel if you have enough open space on your farm for it to fit. If not, no worries, it will go to your FarmVille Gift Box for safe keeping until you are ready to place it.
Everyone starts out with the simple frame of the Watering Wheel. It will be up to you to collect enough construction materials to expand your Water Wheel and complete its construction.
Constructing the Water Wheel
With each construction stage that you complete, your Water Wheel building will change physical appearance by becoming bigger and more grand with each completed stage. Additionally, the bigger your Water Wheel building, the more Watering Cans you will be able to harvest!
There are several ways that you can obtain your construction materials for your Water Wheel which include:
- Send and receive materials from friends via the FarmVille Gifting Page.
- Collect materials from shares on your Facebook News Feed
- Use the “Ask For More” button to request help from friends.
- Purchase materials directly in the FarmVille Market using Farm Cash.
