Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,
How’s this week working out for you? Still making your way through the free doodads? Have you succeeded in unlocking Homer’s Car yet? If not don’t worry..you have plenty of time! Just remember to help out your fellow neighbors and clear those handshakes! Are you still making good use of visiting your neighbors daily? Or has it started to fizzle out for you? Are you in need of more Tapping Friends? Remember you can always find friends on our Add Friends Page (and here for ones who pledge not to vandalize you)…the best (and only way) to submit your Add Me requests on TSTO Addicts!
So now my friends we’ve come to our 5th, and final Friendship Prize (at least until EA decides to add new ones to buy more time between updates). That’s right Tappers it’s time to talk about everyone’s favorite elephant Stampy! Bet you thought I forgot about him didn’t you? Nope, just waiting a few days between Homer’s car and Stampy to allow some of you the chance to “catch up” in FPs. I didn’t want you to feel like we were cramming all of this information down your throat in a handful of days just to be the first to get the info to you. With this update it’s important to remember to SLOW DOWN. There’s no rush in this update, so take your time and enjoy it! 🙂
Anywho…Stampy is unlocked once you’ve unlocked
Snowball II err Homer’s Car (yikes! I need more coffee! Either that or I need to get these darn TPS reports off my desk….thanks for pointing out my error (and for the java!) runicgem!) AND earn an additional 5,000FP…and many of you should be unlocking Bart’s pal sometime in the next few days (depending on how many friends you have). So what happens when you unlock this big eared mammal? Does it do anything? Or is it just another NPC (Non-Playable Character) Well let’s take a closer look…
You can also unlock this via Donuts at a rush rate of 10 FP/donut. So for every 10 friend points you need…it’ll cost you 1 donut. So 500 donuts if you need all 5,000FP, 300 donuts if you need 3,000FP and so on.
Once you return to your Springfield you’ll find Stampy in your Inventory. It’s a new character for your Springfield, and once you add it to your town you’ll see this character unlock message popup:
Stampy belongs in the More Animals and Pets category (along with Snowball & now Freedom the Falcon).
Now clearly EA has saved the best for last because Stampy not only comes with a little mini questline…he also has not 1 but TWO tasks! Bringing this elephant into the world of Jub-Jub has the only Pets with tasks! Ah finally not just another NPC…
Once placed the questline for Stampy should auto-start:
Bart: Whoa ho ho! I can’t believe Stampy is here!
Lisa: Well, when you blow up a town, you tend to blow up the wildlife reservations within it.
Bart: Who’s a good elephant? Wanna go for a walkie!
Make Stampy Carry Bart– 12hrs, Earns $840, 200xp (Note this requires Bart and Stampy. Which means it pays out double the normal rate for a 12hr task)
As I mentioned above Stampy comes with TWO Tasks…and here they are:
|Carry Bart||12hrs||$840, 200xp||Outside||Bart|
|Redecorate the Simpson Home||24hrs||$600, 150xp||Simpson House||N/A|
Now that you’ve completed Level 5 and gotten your last Friendship prize, what’s next? Well it’s onto Level 6. What does that mean exactly? Well at this point you’ve earned all of the prizes but EA still gives you an incentive to keep visiting your friends:
Yes, that says TRIPLE the money. Which means…you’ll earn $90 per friend interaction when visiting neighbors, or $270/neighbor. Talk about a good way to earn some extra $$$. If you have 100 neighbors that’s $27,000/day you can earn JUST from visiting your friends! Pretty sweet huh? Before you know it that World’s Largest Zirconia will be all yours!
Well that’s in my Friends. What do YOU think of Stampy? Have you unlocked it yet? Did you earn it via FP or did you spend donuts to get it faster? Were you excited they added it to the game AND that it has tasks?! Sound off in the comments below…you know we LOVE hearing from you!
Oh and one more thing….cause we all seem to love a good poll:
