FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) including the mysterious island quest and reach level 10 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I have passed level 10?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

How do I visit the island?
Click on the mysterious island bridge, this will take you to the island

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

I cannot find the third artifact, where do you find them?
You get them randomly by baking, gardening and using objects, I cannot tell you where to find them as any action can give you one. Try planting peppers or any other action that takes seconds to try and get it quickly

How long does it take to upgrade the riches of terra?
Go to the island and click on it and select upgrade and it will complete straightaway

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
A treasure chest

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

Have you posted about monuments yet?
Yes, it took me a long time but I have finally finished my monument post, click here to read it

My game is stuck on level 10, why is this?
Once you reach level 10 your game needs to download additional content, this link explains what it is but it doesn’t say how to do it, I’m guessing your game should do it automatically. If you still can’t progress you may need to contact the makers to see if they can fix this for you


The next quest is Need for Steed which unlocks horses! You will need to build the promotions r us store to complete this quest so start building it now!

  1. I am doing my regular task ” big book of stuff” and it did not recognize that my Sim read the whole book to completion. The task is still there.

  2. Can i do the big book of stuff before it orders me to do that and when the big book already in my quest and i alreadyreading the big book does it finish the questwhen its done (sorry im not good at english)^_^

  3. I was just wondering if there are certain tasks that you noticed give you certain items. The ones in particular I am searching for are GOLD for Riches of Terra (I found that corn gets it for you sometimes), the WISP of air for the Tempest of Bliss, the MAGMA for the Flames of Wisdom and the PEARL thing for the Springs of Fortune. I have gotten them all at some point because all these monuments are level 2 or higher except the Springs of Fortune. Is that a life orb? I am currently on the Ghost Hunters quest. I seem to always get a pickaxe (I have over 150 of them). I know they are supposedly randomized, but I have seen somewhat of a pattern and was wondering if anyone else has discovered one.

    • those 3 are rare that is why they take longer to find than the others
      I haven’t really noticed certain tasks giving you certain ones to be honest,
      No, none of the monuments are life orbs, life orbs are completely different

    • I have found that my sim collected the Magma Rock (Flames of
      Wisdom) whilst doing the Settle in action whilst fishing. The sim is level 5 and I got 2 magma rocks after choosing settle in 2 consecutive times. I have somehow collected 1 gold bar, but not sure what I did to collect it. Fashion Designing seems to collect the black Onyx and feeding an infant (since update) collected bamboo no idea how to get the whisp. I know EA need to make money, but making it this hard to collect the items is frustrating and stopping my enjoyment. Also trying to get the last collectable of the toddler clubhouse trying for nearly a month now and still can’t collect it.

      I like this site has great help that’s up to date thanks

  4. Are all the artifacts really assigned randomly? Because I do a lot of gardening, and I have 43 pickaxes, 34 blocks of stone, but only 3 metals for the riches of terra next upgrade (going for level 4). Also, I’m having real trouble finding the red veined rock for Flames of Wisdom.

    Is there anything I can do to get those more often and the ones I don’t need less often? Or is the game just unbalanced to force you to use LPs (and thus hopefully by them)?

    Thanks!

    –Miri

    • Yes they are, some are rare though so take longer to find so the gold and red rock are both rare, and yes they do this to get you to spend LPs on them, but there is nothing you can do to get those more often you just have to play the game and hope for them!

      • I get stuff by kicking over the rubbish bin and cleaning it up… Works every time for some reason

  5. Hey, i just wanted to ask that can we open the treasure chest whenever we want? Or will not opening it now just make it dissappear or something?
    I love your blog, whenever i get a new quest, the first thing i do is come here!

  6. Have u upgraded all the monuments??
    Btw do u have a telescope in any of ur houses??
    I am on a quest which requires to use a neighbors telescope

  7. could you possibly give out your Game Center? if not I understand but I need a neighbor who is advanced for many of my quests😁

  8. Will I be able to upgrade the monuments if I’m buildin something else? I need to build promotions are us for the need for steed but I don’t want to start it if it’s going to hold up upgrading the monuments for my current quests

  9. What is the top level of the monuments? I just want to know how many more levels until they are completed. I am on level 7 for one of them and 6 on another, and the stage of construction of it doesn’t look like it’s even near the completed stage if it is only 10 levels.

  10. When, I would be on the verge of ending the quest “The Mysterious Island”, if I start reading the “big book of stuff”, and then after few hours, I finish the quest of mysterious island and then enter to the quest of “the raiders of lost artifacts”, would it count, as I’ve started reading it in the earlier quest and ended my reading in the required quest?
    I hope u can understand what I’m trying to say…..
    Thank u… 😃

      • Well… Thank u very much…
        And by the way, I love ur blog a lot coz it has helped me a lot, even I’m playing on windows phone….
        Once again thanks…. 😊😊

  11. Hi thank you so much for your lovely blog. I am currently on the Need for Steed quest and I’m having trouble getting 100,000S for the Promotions R S. I was wondering if I can do it along with the toddlers quest, as in two quests together? If not, can I skip it and go to the toddlers quest? Also: do you have fast fairly-easy ways to earn good sums of money. Thank you!

  12. Thanks for doing this. I use your blog as a guide throughout the game. New quest – check the girl who games. The tips on starting tasks early are especially helpful. And I like how you don’t give away surprises when it would ruin the fun for the player. I can tell you enjoy playing and learning about the game. It comes through in your writing. Well done.

  13. Hello I am currently reading the big book of stuff and I am wondering if you can collect the artifacts you to upgrade the monuments before you get to the step in the quest

  14. I’m on level 31 and I’m trying to get all of the monuments but none of them (except the one I built in this quest) will let me build it. All that comes up is a checklist that shows that I passed the level but it won’t let me actually build it. I got on my dads phone and it says that I haven’t completed this quest yet but I have. I think I might’ve messed it up when I got a new phone but it shouldn’t have done that. Suggestions????

  15. What does the volcano give you? Simoleons? LP? Furniture? Thank you for your help with all the quests, you have helped me through many!

    • Sorry but I haven’t completed the monuments yet but I am working on them! I have made a note of your question so as soon as I have completed them I will create a post answering this and many other questions I have been asked
      In the meantime someone may reply with the answer to your question!

  16. I’m so stupid- I started the big book of stuff early but before this quest officially came up I went to the house with that Sim so it doesn’t count anymore. I have 11 LPs so I’m probably going to have to use all of it to complete the quest in time. I’m so angry and annoyed with myself… Also can I ask you a question? The last time I downloaded this game (2013/14) there was a quest for fashion studio but is there one now? Because there was a popup about the long hair quest coming back again and i think you need to build it before the quest is available?

  17. Hello, I’m trying to do this quest, but when I press on the bridge, I see the Sims Freeplay logo, and then it goes to the home on my tablet. Could it be a bug?

  18. I am trying to find second artic act, I have kicked over the garbage, but it won’t let me search it, it’s showing foot prints up above the sims I am trying it with, help please

  19. Hello. This is a silly question but I am wondering why is the stable for need for stead is not ready? I have already completed the raiders of the lost artifacts. Is it because I haven’t build the promotions r us store yet?
    I wasn’t sure on which page should I ask but thought I should go for this.
    Anyway, thanks for your help & for posting this up!

  20. I was just wandering if there any special places for each artifacts cause i did a lot of things and i only got pickaxe from gardening, granite from sentinel thingy from last quests and i haven’t found any gold help?

  22. I started “Read Big Book of Stuff” after the bridge was built, but before I started the quest. Do you think I will be able to finish the quest on time? Or should I stock up on LPs and be prepared to use them, just in case? Thanks!

    • You will be fine as you have started reading the book early, just stay away from the house where the sim is reading until you get the goal otherwise you will have to start reading it again.

      • Whew! Thanks. I thought I would have to use my LPs to finish reading the book. But I guess that would nullify the purpose of starting the goal early. I hope using all my Sims on “Find the 3rd artifact” will make up for the late start on the “early start”. Haha! Cheers!
