Turbo Tappin’ Halloween 2017 Premium Stuff: The Great Raymondo

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Fall has arrived and there’s a haze over our Springfield’s, that can only mean one thing….it’s Halloween in our pocket-sized towns! This year EA’s thrown a little magic into the mix, with an Angelica Button theme invading our towns. We’ve got beasts to battle, creatures to capture, wizards to wand wave and goblin gold to gather! Quite a few alliteration altercations huh?

Of course, it wouldn’t be an event in TSTO without some premium content.  And for Act 2 of Halloween, your premium character of choice is The Great Raymondo. Not only does he battle beasts, but he has his own questline to quest through. (although you totally can wait until the event is over to do it)

Now let’s wave our wands and view the quick walkthrough for the second Premium Character Questline of Halloween…

Halloween Magic Act 2…Free Donuts!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with something real quick.  Once again EA has made it even easier to earn free donuts for Act 2 of this event!

Just Act 1, EA’s done something a little different (and in my opinion BETTER) for Halloween Act 2….you can now earn bonuts BEFORE you’ve completed the prize track! In this case, once you’ve completed the main questline,  you’ll see the bonus round popup:

So for every 10,000  you collect after finishing the questline, you’ll have a chance for 1, 2 or 3 donuts!

BTW….Can you Spot EA’s Typo? 

This is great because now if you, for some reason, don’t make it to the final prize on the Act 2 prize track you can still earn free donuts!  And you’ll earn free donuts just for getting to the final prize.  You’ll earn at least 1 round of bonuts before you get to the end! (well depending on how fast you finish the questline, but it’s pretty short…so shouldn’t take too long)

Remember, to trigger the bonus round you’ll need to complete the Act 2 questline.  Turbo Tapping version can be found here.

Pretty sweet change in my opinion!  No tricks here, this is definitely a treat this Halloween!

THOH XVIII – Act II Calendar

I have to admit… I was a bit like Charlie Brown this morning as I opened my game up, knowing that a new act was starting.  Like Charlie at Halloween…I was hoping for a full-size premium chocolate bar, and instead, appear to have received another rock.  One click…and BOOM…we are back to grinding.

I’m not really sure what to tell you, except that this act seems to be as easy as the last act, if you “want it all.”  But, like last act, we are left with the same “meh” and redundant craftables…along with some pretty uninspired “Main Prize Track” prizes.

But then…just as I was typing that last paragraph…I got a message from Alissa, that EA had changed the numbers again…upped them to make them a bit harder. This was AFTER I had spent 2 hours doing the math, and making the new calendars. Yes…EA is currently on my Sh*t list. Not a fan.

I’m not against the Potter-esque event….I’m just still waiting for the magic.

But…here are the numbers…all a couple of hundred higher than the originals that were in the files…just because EA apparently wants to prove “who is in charge” and is being Richard-ish…even though we have established that this update is anything but Hallow-Richardy in its execution.

THOH XXVIII Act 1 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 1 of the Halloween/THOH/Magical Event/Angelica Button Event/Harry Potter Event…whatever the heck you wanna call it…Ends TOMORROW October 17th at 0800 GMT (4am ET).

Once the Act 1 is over you will no longer be able to earn Wand Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning wands if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act  As will the Goblin Gold you’ve accumulated.

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 1 check out our rundown post here.

Be ready for the Act 2 to start bright and early at 0800 GMT (4am ET) tomorrow morning  (October 17th)….
