Should I Spend Donuts On Shauna

Valentine’s Day has arrived in Springfield!  But, with all of the new Valentine’s premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Shauna to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this Tough Girl to your Springfield.

shauna_menu

Character: Shauna
Donut Price: 90 donuts
Limited Time: Yes
Comes With Tasks: Yes (See Below)
Bonus: 50% more $$$ & XP

Pros:
-Old Character making a return!  Woo-hoo for bringing back old items!!
-ANOTHER Female added into your Springfield
-Comes with tasks, hence more in game cash to earn
-Who doesn’t want a Bad Girl?

Cons:
-Limited Time.
-Costs a lil more than other Toughie Kearney who has tasks and bonus

Final Thought:
I am most DEFINITELY buying her for both my A and B games. I am an Adroid user and was unable to get all the VD goodies from last year. SHE is the one I coveted the most. She has tasks that pay out at a great rate, not to mention quite amusing.  I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing her for your town.
Just remember whatever you decide this is a LIMITED-TIME character and once she’s gone, she’s gone…so be sure to get her before the event is over if you’re thinking about it.

Shauna’s Tasks:

Task Length Payout Location
Shoplift from the Kwik-E-Mart 30mins $60, 15xp Kwik-E-Mart
Paintball in the Brown House 2hrs $175, 40xp Brown House
Tease the Ducks 8hrs $420, 105xp Outside (keeping baby duck from its Mother)
Send Make-Out Invites on Springface 12hrs $600, 150xp Outside (texting on her cell phone and giggling)
Seek Inappropriate Love 24hrs $1000, 225xp Brown House

Should I Spend Donuts On The Whale

Valentine’s Day has arrived in Springfield!  But, with all of the new Valentine’s premium items it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add The Whale to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this Water Mammal to your Springfield.

whale_menu1

Decoration: The Whale
Donut Price: 300 donuts
Dimensions: 7 x 14
Bonus: 7% more $$$ & XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +3000
Unique: No

Pros:
-A BIG FRAKKIN WHALE IN SQUIDPORT!!!
-A HUGE Bonus Payout
-Animation: The Whale dives into the water and pops out while spouting water from the blowhole when tapped.
-Sound: Makes Whale calls when tapped.

Cons:
-OH MY 300 DONUTS???!!
-Massive cost for an item that is not used by any characters or tasks in the games.

Final Thought:
I did buy a Whale (well they are unlimited so I actually accidentally purchased two of them. Make sure YOUR confirm donuts spend is set to OFF!) It REALLY hurt losing 600 of my precious pink sprinkled sugary sweets. GAH! I do like the idea of a Giant Mammal in my Squidport. It does have amusing animation and a huge bonus…but honestly…I would say save your donuts on this one. You can purchase TWO Buildings w/characters for the cost it take for this ginormous water creature…with payouts and tasks. I just do not see a great benefit to it. Other premiums with better odds can also be purchased to equal the bonus payout and still hit under the 300 donut mark. So unless you are a completionist and HAVE to get every last item, I would save those precious donuts and pass on this one.
