The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Broomstick Flying

90 Comments

This hobby unlocks once the spell casting hobby has been completed for the first time, that post can be found here: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/10/30/the-sims-freeplay-hobbies-spell-casting/

For a limited time: complete the hobby in 7 days to unlock the fantasian cleaning mop that cleans the floor on its own! Another time limit hobby straight after the last one is not needed!

NOTE: You have 7 days from the moment you finish the quest so selecting not now will still start the timer!

Also you will then be able to access the wizardly home builders kit which you can still get if you don’t complete it within 7 days

Who can do broomstick flying?

Adults and teens

After you completed the hobby for the first time as many sims as you want can do this hobby

How can they do it?

After the spell casting hobby has been completed for the first time you can buy a magic broomstick closet from the Sorcerous supplies store for 10,000 (but you can only buy one to complete the hobby in the time limit, after that you can buy as many as you want)

NOTE: only one sim can do this hobby to get the mop!

Where can they do it?

At home by placing the closet

What are the options?

Quick broomstick flight- 4 hours 30 minutes

Long broomstick flight- 12 hours 30 minutes

20141105-204052.jpg

What are the levels?

  1. Street Sweeper
  2. Nose Diver
  3. Low Rider
  4. Speed Needer
  5. High Flyer
  6. Broom Master

I personally have given up trying to complete this hobby in the time limit, after getting the same item 5 times in a row, the mop costs 888,888 from the sorcerous supplies store- it just wanders around sweeping, apparently it does clean up pee now and vomit.

Thank you Torie for this picture!

Thank you Torie for this picture!

What do you win?

The first time you unlock the wizardly home builders kit- this includes wizard themed exterior walls, wallpaper, flooring, window and door.

Where can you find them?

  • Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
  • Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
  • Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
  • Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
  • Runic door- doors tab of house section
  • Secret door- doors tab of house section

Further times you get 5LPs.

I cant find one of the items, any tips?

The only advice I can give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random

It it worth using lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

Hope this helps!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Hpw do iget my wizard outfit so i can cast the spells better

  2. Just a tip, but I noticed you can have two sims practicing the spell casting hobby even on the first run as long as one of them is practicing at a neighbour’s house. It’s probably the same for the broomstick flying, although I didn’t unlock it yet.
    Of course it’s not so easy to find a neighbour with the hobby item.

  3. I have the broom closet, if you want to add me as a neighbor. Game Center ID jbs1382. It is located in the two story house behind the swim center.

  5. Hi, I have the broom closet and magic wand podium. I need neighbor with broom closet to complete broomstick flying hobby in time.
    Add me via Facebook, my profil name Bangkit Dwi Lestari.
    Note:please send me a message first at Facebook so I know you

    • Hi! I also need neighbor with broom closet. I have one at the first house too. Can you add me on fb mum gameon? There are 2 profiles with your name, so not sure which one to send message/add. Thanks!

    • Hello, I’d like to add you on Facebook but apprently it seems like there are more profiles called the same :/ Can you add me instead? My name is Noémi Karbuczky.

  6. Mop cost 888,888 😦

  7. Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows what the mop actually does? I’m deciding if it’s worth spending a hefty amount of LPs to complete the hobby. If it doesn’t serve any purpose then I don’t think I’d want to spend so much LPs completing this in time after the amount I had to spend on the last hobby.

  8. I spent a lot of LPs to finish the hobby with in 7 dad and was very surprised to see the mop costs §888,888!!!

    Does anyone with it find this price worthwhile?

  9. Are the new dragon pets and magic hobbies life quests for any of the sims? I haven’t seen them come up as options for any of the personality types.

  10. I should have read your posts first! 😦

    I spent so much LP on the owl, only to realise I needed to spend more LP for it.

    After the ordeal, it prompted me to do the new task and I clicked “not now” cuz I was so tired of spending my LP.

    I just read your post about the timer still running. I quickly went back and clicked “start new collection” in a hurry. But It doesn’t prompt me to do the Magic mop task anymore….

    Do you know how I can start the magic mop task now? Do I have to choose something special? Or will it randomly prompt me again?

    These time limit tasks are so annoying. 😦

  11. I went thru 200 LPs between the 2 wizard hobbies. I ended up rolling the dice in the end and had better luck which never happens.

  12. Wait! So _after_ you unlock the mop it still costs 888,888? That’s absurd!! And pointless. Yes it looked cool in the wizard’s house, but it’s just another pointless dust collector really. I was even disappointed with the owl after the spell casting hobby, all you can do is have a conversation? Really? At least the dragons are cute.

  13. Wow. I had no idea the stupid mop cost so much! I’ve been working sims in two neighborhoods with zero downtime and like weightlessmagic, I have gotten the same stupid tricks over and over. I thought the broom looked looked cute bustling about the wizard’s crib but no way am I going to waste a bunch of LPs on this hobby only to turn around and spend practically a million simoleons on the mop. Some prize! Thank you for keeping us updated with your blog. You are a lifesaver.

  14. Wow, EA have really reminded us that they’re out to make money! Why 12 hours 30 mins? So that time is always slipping and you use your LP to catch up. I blew about 80 LP last night on spell casting – can’t believe how many times I finished a session without getting a new spell – no way are they ‘random’! 😛

  15. Hi there. Just wanted to know where I can access the wizardly home builders kit? I looked everwhere in the home store but can’t find it. Thanks for your time.

    • Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  16. I also have tried for the stupid mop. I spent only 10 lp today and didn’t even get any new pieces of the puzzle. I have completes 2 long flights between last night and tonight and also did not receive even one puzzle piece and have 3 days left to gain the remaining 6 pieces. I am giving up. At least i can get the wizards building kit without completing the 12 broomstick flights to get the stupid mop and i wouldn’t pay any stupid enormous amount for it anyway!

  17. I bought a magic mop. It seems to be useless, it just moves randomly inside and outside the house. I wonder if it can clean a pee pudle. It doesn’t interact with sims (at least the adult ones).

  18. How do I do the wizards home building kit? I have unlocked this

    • You need to buy them from the house section of buy mode:
      Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  19. Does anyone know what was actually supposedly included in the magic home builders kit? I finally got the last of the twelve broom tricks today (I used no LP, just let the “random” feature run it’s annoyingly long course, this was almost as bad as the fishing hobby), and then perused the home store but couldn’t see anything that hadn’t already been available – magic candelabra, magic bookcase, tomes of knowledge, magic spells stack, cauldron fireplace, magic mirror … these things were all available as soon as I finished building the magic store, so what am I missing?

    • Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  20. I’ve completed the spell casting hobby but I dont seem to have a broomstick cupboard in the sourcerous supplies shop? How can I get it?

  21. I have unlocked the wizardly home builders kit but where is it??? I don’t see any of the items everyone is referring to ;-(

    • Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  22. I don’t have a broom closet in my sorcers supply store, any suggestions?

  23. I can’t find the closet at the Sorcerous supplies store .. pls help .. i have finished the quest within the time but i can’t find the closet

  24. After completeing all of the broomstick tricks or whatever, I finally unlocked the sorcerer’s secret room. Said it can be found in the home store but I can’t find it. Anyone know where it is?

    • You have unlocked the wizardly home builders kit:
      Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  25. You should put more information about this hobby up like how you can get 5 LP after you complete it the first time and where to get the wizard house after completing the hobbt the forst time even if you don’t finish it in time to get the mop.

  26. I’ve completed the spell casting hobby but I dont seem to have a broomstick cupboard in the sourcerous supplies shop? How can I get it?

  27. Is anyone aware of if the mop goes after dishes? If it does, then I might actually have use for it. If not, forget it, the times and prices are absurd.

  28. I am so stuck on this book of spells… cannot find the wand to pick up for the second time. And I do not have the stand in my hobbies to find the wand. Can you help?

    • the second time you pick it up is towards the end of the quest, you just store it in your inventory
      You can’t do the hobby until you have finished the quest

      • Hi I have a question.  I have a teen that is a musician.  His hobby has and is costing me a lot! I have tried multiple times to get him to compose the 12 songs to complete the task and I even spent 10 life points on the 3 star piano which is doing nothing more than the 1 star that didn’t cost me anything! He still plays and composes it takes less time 48 minutes vs 1 hr but the same old songs that do nothing to get closer to completing the task. Any suggestions?

      • Firstly you could have commented on the teen idol hobby instead of the broomstick flying one: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/09/05/the-sims-freeplay-hobbies-teen-idol/
        Has he found all 3 notes on the keyboard? if he has you need to move on to the bass guitar and find all 3 of those notes, then the same with the drumkit, guitar and finally microphone
        If he hasn’t found all 3 then you just have to keep going, there is no skill to it

  29. So how can I get a dragon?

  31. Please add me as a neighbor through facebook. I am in the Seattle, WA (USA) area and I am Daisy Valerie Williams. I tried to put most quest and hobby things in one house (back row far right before bridge) and all haunted and salsa dancing items in house in front of it. I have spell casting and broom flying in another house. If you need something particular, you can email me.

    And “girl who games” you are awesome! I am also a girl who games, just got started a little later in life! 😉

  32. Can u add me?

    😀 your a big help

    Plz

  33. Thank you so much for this! The mop is ridiculously expensive. People can add me if they like 🙂 my Game Center name is: raachel.k

  34. I love your blog! I need more friends who are well developed in this game so I can accomplish more….add me at miranda978 or add my Facebook at Mandy jones and send me a message saying its for sims! I can help a lot of people too! My town is very advanced

  35. I have a broomstick closet if anyone wants to add me, Game Center name is “Wayvern H”. My closet is in the house just below the art gallery.

  36. Hi, my sim is stuck in the Wizards house and I can’t go there unless I have another person but it says it’s to crowded for more people. So how do I get in there to get her out?

  37. fyi: mop DOES clean up pee (2015).
    I saw this at a neighbor’s. no idea about vomit or dishes, though.

  38. This broom does clean throw up I shook the screen and the sims threw up it cleaned it (:

  39. Guys I have no closet on sorcerous supplies??

  40. Hey, I’m just wondering if you know, does the mop clean up plates from the cooking hobby as well as pee and vomit? My floors are covered with plates that I’d really prefer not to clean up manually, but I’d rather not spend all the LPs and Simoleons to get the mop if it doesn’t clean the plates up

  41. I really wanted this mop if nothing else for looks! Well I ended up spending 150 lps and an extension and didn’t finish. I am mad and broke. If I didn’t love this game I would quit!

  42. Omg I cannot move the broomstick closet! Be very careful where you put it because I just tried to remodel my house and it just won’t move 😦 Deleting the room won’t work.

  43. Need a neighbor with a broomstick closet. Add me in Game Center “aIRIStotle95”. Thanks

  44. Hi. I know this post is quite old now, but I just purchased the mop from the online store (£7.99, I think – I must have been mad!) Anyway, I was still annoyed to find out that when I tried to place it, it said it would cost 888,888. However, a few days later, I had another look, and when I tried to place it in a house, it had gone down to 88,889. I can afford that, so I placed it in the house, only to find it didn’t take any Simoleons from me anyway! Just thought I’d share this in case anyone else has done/thought the same!

  45. I just finished the broomstick flying hobby and unlocked the pack. Apparently, now the secret door is unlocked with the builder’s pack.
