Hey they all you voyeurs. Lol. So now EA has decided to add a fun lil element into the event for us to “Spy” on our neighbors. Why on earth would we do that? Well, other than the obvious reasons….
After completing the Quash Those Who Trespass Against Us questline to seek out and tap on Robed Order characters running around your Springfield, you will see a new quest appear for Trust No One, started by #1, for you to now spy on your neighbors.
(SIDE NOTE: The donuts you see are NOT a payout. They are the amount it will take to speed up and avoid this task…it is there more for those that still play with no neighbors.)
In order for this to work, your neighbors had to have completed to that same part of the questline (a good hint they are collecting is the emblems on their counts are above zero).
You will also notice it is activated in their town due to how it will look when you enter. If you just see the standard $$$, menus, etc…they are not to the point to be spied on just yet. What you want to look for is surveillance cameras and the All Seeing Eye Pyramids.
By clicking on the Surveillance cameras, you will see an All Seeing Eye Pyramid appear over the building. You will be rewarded with $$, XP, and Emblems. (You can go in both Springfield and Krustyland to do this.)
(You will know just how many you will get by clicking on the italic “i” next to YOUR Emblem count in the lower left side. If you can, click on your neighbors Stonecutter Lodge as it pays out 5 Emblems.) Keep in mind you only have 60 actions total per 24 hours window in neighbor visits. If you use any of the 60 to tag or collect just money/tickets you lose that option to get the full 60 emblems per day. So use those first 60 taps wisely.
Now comes the tricky part. As soon as you start “spying” on a neighbor a timer is set. They now have a window of time to clear out the “All Seeing Eye Pyramid Spy” to get the most Emblems payout.
This is what your building will look like if a neighbor is spying on you. The All Seeing Eye Pyramid will be moving and hieroglyphics will be scrolling on by over a building. As soon as you see one pop up in your town, tap it right away so you get the most Emblems from it as possible.
The amount you can get for “Stop Spying” starts at 5 Emblems and goes down 1 Emblem from there every 2 hours.
1-2 hours: 5 Emblems
2-4 hours: 4 Emblems
4-6 hours: 3 Emblems
6-8 hours: 2 Emblems
Over 8 hours: 1 Emblem
If you have your notifications are on, you will be alerted when someone “Spies” on a building in your town.
Once you go to at least one neighbor and “Spy” on 3 buildings the Trust No One mini quest will be cleared. You can continue the fun of “Spying” throughout the even on all your neighboreenos. Lol.
