 Resort Owners of FarmVille Tropic Escape a new event has arrived just in time for Valentine's Day. Always on the lookout for new ways to bring happiness(and money) to your island; Kate invites Francois the Love Pirate to act as a romance adviser.

Note: This is a full guide to the Love Pirate event. Which means it contains spoilers.



FVTropic Escape
 The event will begin if you are at least level 8. Although I do recommend that a player reaches at level 12 to access the Hot Spring landmark for a chance at more love letters.
FVTropic Escape
 This particular event is on a timer. A player has until February 17th 2017 to finish before it disappears from the island.
FVTropic Escape
 The idea is to shower Francois with gifts of love letters, colognes, or perfumes. In turn, he will give you a rose. As you can see in the picture above he can be found next to your storage or cabana.
FVTropic Escape
Each Rose you receive from Francois progresses the gift meter shown above. The gift meter opens either by tapping on the table of roses(enjoy the cheesy sax music) near Francois, or by tapping on the Party Island with the monkey DJ. The gift meter has 4 milestones.

FVTropic Escape Helper, Prizes & Decorations:

Gifts & How to Make Them:

FVTropic Escape
Love Letters: Awards 5 Roses
This is the one you'd like to aim for getting but also the hardest to attain.

Artisan Workshop
2 Orchid Perfumes
1 Pirate Parchment - Found at various landmarks like Coral Reef, Smugglers Cave, Hot Spring
FVTropic Escape
Manly Cologne: Awards 2 Roses
This particular one is the one you'll want to craft the most.

Artisan Workshop
8 Orchid - plant Orchid
2 Sandlewood - Harvest Orchids & this will appear as well.
FVTropic Escape
Pink Margarita: Awards 1 Roses
I found this one to be a nuisance to craft for such a little return. Not only does it take longer than the other two items but it also only gives the least roses. Not especially worth it to craft unless necessary.

Artisan Workshop
15 Pineapple - plant Pineapple
3 Agave- Harvest Pineapple & this will appear as well
1 Orchid - plant Orchid.
