The Sims Freeplay- Hearth of Stone Christmas 2019 Quest

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys (Presented by EA GameChangers)


THIS QUEST IS NOW OVER

Your sims are just waiting to see what disaster will occur this Christmas, join them for this 13 day quest from the 12th December! There are 13 sets of goals to complete in the 13 day time limit so there is a set of goals to complete each day, if you complete the quest in the time limit you win the spectacular lakehouse template! Make sure you update your game to the 2019 lake house Christmas update to be able to start this quest

 

You have to wait between completing each set so you complete one set per day, after completing a set you have to wait for a certain amount of time before being able to continue with the quest (the time varies depending on how long you take) unless you are behind then you will move straight onto the next set once you have completed the previous.

Watch my step by step walkthrough video of this quest here

TIP: there are lots of tasks that need to be done more than once, this year you can use LP to skip all these tasks or you can still use the maximum sims you can to complete the task but remember if you just use one sim you will run out of time

  1. I love this house! Way better than the museum mansion imo. And the bay windows are gorgeous.

    Thanks for the post.

    • i love these types of quests so much, and i love the bay windows but they are so pricey. 😦 i’m so glad you still get a free set of everything first .
      so excited to play this

      • I love your posts; always so helpful! Just wanna mention. I am only level 40 and didn’t have up to 28 Sims; I believe it may be different depending on the level you are but I didn’t have to spend nearly as many lifepoints and didn’t have to use as many Sims. I’m on the 12th day now and I already spent a good portion of LPs so I look forward to getting this template. Thanks for the help!! Without this post I wouldn’t have known to keep up on my cooking hobby (SO MANY LPS NEEDED AHH)

      • You’re very welcome, I’m glad the cooking hobby is working for you! It does seem to differ depending on the level you are on, 28 sims is the max you would need if you were at the highest level in the game.

    • Hi! I just got the new update and I found a gift box on my sims lot. I tried open it but it said that I had to move it in build mode. I can’t move it! Please help!

      Thank you

      P.S.
      thank you so much for this blog. You have helped me so much! I am so thankful of your continued help on the blog😁😎

      • You’re welcome, I’m glad it helps 🙂 Can you find the gift box at a different house? You may want to try and open it there, also it might help to have a sim standing right next to the box before you click on it to open it.

  2. Hi
    If I complete the hearth of stone quest will I get the 2 story lake house if I haven’t done the multi story renovations quest yet?
    Thanks

  3. Sorry, I know I posted this comment, but it was in the wrong blog post!
    You said that we need to wait a certain amt. of time before being able to start on another day’s quest, unless we are behind, then we’ll start straight away. I will be on a field trip where I can’t bring electronics for 5/13 days of the quest– (using lots of LP) could I theoretically complete 5 days’ worth of tasks in the remaining 8 days? Or would I just have to miss out on the 5 prizes? Thanks!

  4. How many sims would you recommend having in order to actually finish the last set on time? I only have 8 adults right now.

  5. Hi! I will like to ask, as I haven’t start patio discovery quest, so if assuming that I can finish all and unlock the above, will I still get get the patio/Balcony Paving prize when I finish the discovery quest at a later date? Because I just finish most of the main quest. Thanks in advance!

      • Anyone else having problems with professional workplaces during this quest? The exchange bit on all professional workplaces doesn’t open since this quest started so I can’t complete the market place quests!

      • The makers are aware of this issue and are working on a fix but until then if you still have workstations to upgrade you should be able to click on the upgrade arrows to access the workplaces tab that usually appears in the corner, if not you might just need to wait until the Christmas quest is over before you can access the workplace tab.

    • It frustrates me so much how impossible the last day is. I do not have 28 sims (18 but 2 are not adults) so there is no way for me to complete the final day. I was so excited about this quest but now I don’t even want to try know that it is literally impossible to do the final day.

  6. Hi
    I got up this morning expecting this quest to start, but it isn’t there. My game already updated – I’m doing the sophisticated socialite event now. Do you think something is wrong or maybe it hasn’t started yet?
    Thanks so much

  7. I’m doing this right now and I’ve gotten to the place four Christmas decorations but it isn’t showing any in my home store! I checked the featured and the decorations section! What do I do?

  8. I am wondering how to access my workplace overview/storage/resource exchange while the Hearth of Stone quest is going on. There is only one button (for the quest) in the upper left when I’m at the police station or hospital or movie studio – usually there are two options, one for the special event and one for the workplace tabs. This seems like a glitch – should I report this, or will it get fixed in a future update? Thanks! 🙂

      • I am having the same issue when I send my sims to their workplace. The tab in the top right corner will not expand to show the workplace resource. I need to sell some resources but when I tap it, nothing happens. I tried it at both the police station and the movie studio.

      • It seems there is a glitch where some players can’t expand the button, the makers are aware of this issue and are working on a fix but until then if you still have workstations to upgrade you should be able to click on the upgrade arrows to access the workplaces tab that usually appears in the corner, if not you might just need to wait until the Christmas quest is over before you can access the workplace tab.

  9. Love the info’s provided however I’ve being wondering regarding some of the task given. For example Day 5 prepare christmas cookies 14 times, Day 7 pick fresh spices 17 times, Day 11 annoy Cirrus 16 times. Is it possible to have more then 1 sim to perform the action? or only 1?
    And as a new player to the game, I currently only have 19 sims and I was wondering if I’m able to complete some of the tasks that requires more then 20 sims?

  10. Hi! I completed day 2 yesterday around 7pm. The timer then said I would be able to start day 3 at 8am this morning, but when I tried to just now the timer told me I still have to wait for 12 more hours! I am really frustrated! Is this a glitch? Thanks for your help!

  11. On day 12 it says to send 25 apology examples. Is that 1 Sim sending all 25 in the 5 hours or is it 1 Sim sending 1 example every 5 hours? In other words, do I just use the 1 Sim or do I need more?

  12. Day 3 Hearth of stone I did the extra hot coffee amount of times required at the end of the time I had to do two again using LP also Watch next season I did it didn’t work had to use LP to complete is there a glitch

  13. Just a detail to fix, when it says ‘have 12 sims complain about Santa’, for me I only needed 7 sims to do it.

  14. I like this quest, it’s not impossible to complete and the house template is adorable.

    Thank you so much for this post, I always come here to plan how I’m gonna do the next day.

  15. Here’s a tip: when you’re completing a task that others can join in, have as many join as possible, to maximize your chance of getting an ad that let’s Osiris auto-complete the task. During one of the “watch TV with Santa” tasks, I had 9 other sims come over to the crowd around the TV. When the last one joined, an ad started, and it said Osiris would auto-complete, and the quest moved on to the next task. Saved me a few hours!

  16. Sorry if this is a silly question, but do we have to complete the daily set tasks by midnight or are we given a full 24 hours? I’m not sure as I’ve always managed to complete them by the evening but I’ve stumbled across your blog and day 13 looks really challenging! Thanks in advance

    • You have the full 24 hours but you can take longer on every day apart from the final day you will just be behind in the quest and won’t get the waiting time. But you will need to complete the final day in the time you have left (see the timer on the quest goals) to earn the Lakehouse.

  17. How do I thave the additional 16 people “pick fresh spices”. I am not seeing an option to purchase 16 more potted herbs..

  18. I’m to the point where you have to pick fresh spices. Do you have to pick the chili peppers? I am very confused.

  19. Fingers crossed that I’ll need fewer than 28 sims on the last day. I’ve noticed that the requirements have been less for me, such as bake 10 cookies instead of 14, and gather 12 spices instead of 17. Maybe because I’m lower level?

  20. In the later days when we need lots of sims to complete actions (like 28 on the last day), will preteens be able to help?
    If I complete the action with 25 sims instead of 28, will I need fewer LP to complete the last 3?

  21. I just started playing after a few years away (LOL)
    When the quest says 13 days to complete, does that mean I had 13 days from December 12th or 13 days from whenever I started the quest? I just re-installed the game yesterday and today is December 20th. Should I even bother with this quest? Yes I know you can unlock furniture but with all the trouble I would like to unlock everything (including house).

  22. Why can’t the Expresso machines at the coffee shop be used to defrost coffee? The option comes up but I got blue footprints and if I selected another option like tend coffee machine it worked. Just annoyed it would have saved me from buying a couple of coffee makers.

  23. Hello! Just a tip… multiple sims can use one coffee machine! I figured this out after I bought 22 coffee machines. Oh well!

  24. Yay- super happy with my progress so far as I’ve got up to the eighth set- and I might get the ninth- within the time limit and I’m only level 10- about level 8 at the beginning- and I’ve been doing this along side the main quests and I’ve completed the main quests in the time limits and before I level up- so j get a break in between. Thanks for your blog as it allows me to prepare for the quests

  25. I’m stuck on the 12th Day quest where I need to talk to Pepper the Elf. She’s stuck under the hillside and my Sim can’t reach her. Even when I click on her action bubble, nothing happens (yes, I’m using an adult Sim). Restarting the game/my phone hasn’t fixed it.

  26. I’m on the 12th set of goals and am stuck on “talk to Pepper”.

    Pepper is in an area of the lot that none of my sims can get to, so when I click on the “cloud” on top of Pepper, nothing happens! Pepper looks to be half buried in the snow! Help!

  27. So I have 4 hours before I can start day 13. Can I start doing some of the task a little ahead of time that require multiple sims?

  28. Thanks for the post. My game only updated 2 days ago when I turned on the Wi-Fi. The remaining time for the quest was 2 days. I thought that the quest was going to be short for the 2 days duration. Only after careful reading on comments here that I realized I missed out the rest 10 days because the game did not update much earlier. I did the quest in 2 days (I just have to get the house, it looks so amazing!) ! Heavily referring to your post, and working crazily to collect Lps from cooking hobby. Managed to finish with only 4 minutes remaining! This is the first time I played crazily day and night for this game. Thanks to you!!
