Well Tappers the Season 25 update has arrived! EA was a little sneaky this time and had the update out in the wee early hours of the morning! However, as true Addicts, we don’t sleep! So Bunny was all over the update as soon as it was out with the complete walkthrough and introduction of the 2 new limited-time items. You can check that out here. But now let’s take a minute and see how the two new items will impact your Conform-O-Meter rating.
For those of you that don’t already know…The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and XP from everything you collect in the game. When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town. If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars. We’ve also posted about each of the 8 categories and how you can max them out you can view them here: Indolence, Consumerism, Tree-Hugging, Vanity, Obedience, Gluttony, Righteousness & Socialism.
Anyway back to the Season 25 Premiere items….
Cost: Free, gift from EA after completing the Conventional Wisdom Quest
Build Time: Instant
Requires: Level 15 & Squidport
Placement: Can only be placed on your boardwalk
Conform-O-Meter Impact: As you might have guessed…Gluttony Rating +10
Unique?: Yes, only 1 per Springfield
Hi- Glow Waste Barrels
Cost: 40 Donuts
Build Time: Instant
Requires: No level requirements.
Placement: Can be placed on main Springfield only…as in only on the Grass area (or pavement if you’ve paved it over) not the boardwalk or beach.
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Vanity +400.
Unique?: Nope, buy as many as your tapping finger desires!
So there you have it! Two new items to impact your Conform-O-Meter…but the good news is your rating requirements haven’t changed as of yet, they’re still exactly as they were when Level 35 arrived. Up next we’ll break down if you should spend your Donuts on the Hi-Glow Waste Barrels. Until then, remember this is a limited-time event so make sure you get your fingers tapping away on the update so you don’t miss out! My guess is it will be gone when the Halloween update arrives on October 1st.
