Along with the two new missions in FrontierVille that will have you hunting Leprechauns, the game has also seen the release of a five-part mission series called "St. Patrick's Day Celebration." The first goal in this mission set asks you to harvest both Cabbage and Potatoes, so if you tackle this mission along with the first mission of the Leprechaun goals, you can actually complete a bit of this quest in the same step, saving some time.
Tend 25 Cows
Harvest 30 Cabbage
Harvest 50 Potatoes
Luckily, these Cows really do only need to be tended; you don't have to sell them. As for the cabbage, it can be harvested after 16 hours, while the potatoes take just four. Remember, if you have a lot of neighbors that have yet to visit your land, you can simply ask them to come over and water these crops, as that will count as harvesting back in your own game, and it can save you a lot of time (especially with the cabbage). Completing this mission rewards you with 50 Food, 300 coins and 50 XP.
Part II of V will require you to actually sell some animals, so I hope you've been stocking up on adult goats.
Sell 30 Adult Goats
Chop Trees 100 times
Collect 15 Uilleanns
Uilleanns are the national bagpipe of Ireland, and you'll need to ask your friends to send you these items. Meanwhile, feel free to purchase some saplings from the store if you don't have grown trees on your land to chop down. For finishing this quest, you'll receive 5 Tools, 200 coins, and 200 XP.
Part III of V has you harvesting quite a few crops, but luckily they don't take very long to grow.
Tend 20 Wheat on Neighbors' Homesteads
Harvest 80 Clover
Have 3 Apple Cider
Clovers take only five minutes to grow, so hopefully, while you're waiting that short time to harvest your Clover, you can head over to four neighbor homesteads (at least) and help them with their Wheat. Apple Cider, meanwhile, is a part of the Apple Tree collection. As this isn't a frequently needed item in the game (but harvesting Apple Trees is) you'll likely have plenty of these on hand to spare. Finishing this quest gives you 175 XP and 500 coins.
Part IV of V has you collecting another type of collectible item, and this one should be just as easy to earn.
Have one Four Leaf Clover
Clear 2 Rocks
Collect 10 St. Patrick's Day Decorations
The Four Leaf Clover is part of the Clover Collection, so if you don't have one on hand before starting this mission series, you will likely earn one when you harvest the 80 Clover needed above. Meanwhile, you'll need to ask your friends to send you the St. Patrick's Day Decorations to finish this quest. Doing so will reward you with 100 XP and one Keg of Green Liquid, a themed decorative item.
Finally, Part V of V has you going back to the original purpose of these St. Patrick's Day goals - that being to introduce the Leprechaun "varmint" on your land.
Hire Four Neighbors
Visit 30 Neighbors
Chase 3 Leprechauns
If you don't have 30 neighbors on your account, simply wait another day until your visiting counter resets, and you should be able to finish this step with ease. Meanwhile, planting Clover is a quick way to bring out Leprechauns, as it can be harvested in just five minutes, and you may even receive all three Leprechauns in a single harvest, if you planted enough Clover at one time. Finishing this final mission rewards you with 300 XP, a Rainbow decorative item, and one Pot of Gold - an item that also happens to be the prize for turning in the new St. Patrick's Day collection.
And there you have it - a goal series that isn't as difficult as many of the others in the game, but should provide you with plenty of entertainment, even if it only comes in the end as you're chasing Leprechauns from your land (c'mon, I can't be the only one that finds it funny... am I?).
