Should I Spend Donuts on Stonecutter #2?

The Stonecutters Event has arrived. With all of the new Stonecutter 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 Stonecutter #2 to YOUR Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Stonecutter skin to YOUR Springfield!

#2 Hibbert

Character Skin: Stonecutter #2, Dr. Hibbert 
Donut Price: 60 donuts

-Comes with a 1 part questline
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and xp than a freemium character
-Completes part of the Stonecutter Collection

-Pricey.  60 donuts is  a lot to spend on a skin for a character.
-No outside tasks.  While he does earn at a premium rate, none of the tasks are visible.

Final Thought:
Personally, this is in on the fence one for me.  60 donuts is A LOT to spend for a skin, especially one with no visible outdoor tasks.  BUT the Completest in me wants it for my town AND the Simpson fan in me wants ALL of the Stonecutters!  So this is one I’ll most likely purchase, but I’ll grumble a bit about what he costs.  🙂
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do, and this is one I’ll pull the trigger on.  Whatever you decide just remember, this is a Limited-time skin…so if you’re thinking about it make sure you make your decision prior to the Stonecutter Event leaving our games July 2nd.

  1. I’m still debating with myself on this one! The completest in me wants it but I’m not a REAL completist because there’s still a lot of things I pass on (the falcon, for instance).

    I don’t have Jasper yet. I could buy him now but then he will still be there after the event is over (and the Stonecutter skin for him will be too, right?)

    • Yup, as long as you’ve unlocked the skin it’ll stay in your inventory until you get Jasper 🙂

      And yes, I know they’re all rough decisions! I tried to pass on the falcon, but that little voice in my head kept saying…you need it! 😉

    • Not worth it

  2. I don’t know which is correct, because I haven’t decided if I want to buy this skin or not, but the payout listed here (and I believe also on Number 51’s premium guide as well) is more than the ordinary premium rate. (I’m sort of a numbers person.) Is this an example of the Stonecutter Task increase? Some kind of secret conspiracy some ancient group might unleash to give their members a special monetary benefit?

  3. I bought this with a quickness. Ahhhh the life of a completionist.

  4. OK just got back from vacation and I was in the sticks so I had very limited access to Wi-Fi. I only now got the sacred parchment. Can I catch up?

  5. Awesome sauce thanks for the feedback guys. This event just keeps getting better! !!

  6. Hi Everyone
    Some of my neighbours have as many as 44000 emblems. How is this possible please? I play regularly and have reached 11000ish so far.

    • They either rushed with donuts or use other means.

    • I have almost 100 friends (98 towns to tap), I have been playing very regularly, have not rushed with donuts, and have over 17000 emblems.

      One tip: Go back and forth through your friends’ towns, only tapping the Lodges in their towns for your first 60 friend taps. Do not tap anything else. You will earn 5 emblems per tap that way, and so you will make 300 emblems on just your friend taps. Plus, if you check your Springfield and clear spied buildings every 2 hours, you will get the 5 emblems per tap that way. If all 99 friends visit you during the day and you clear all those buildings, you will have 1485 just from friend visits.

      But, of course, I don’t recommend trying to tap your town every 2 hours. You will lose a lot of sleep that way. I’m an insomniac, so it doesn’t matter much to me. 😉

  7. When we win the stonecutter table will the feast task become an outdoor task?

  8. I’m itching to buy the pyramid but I’ve been waiting to read about the pros and cons! You guys always have the most entertaining advice!!! Any thoughts?

    • It’ll be coming in the future.

    • I bought it straight away…..why?…..IT’S A PYRAMID!….LOL. It looks soooo cool. Plus it pays out emblems. I love pyramids, in fact, I’m wearing one on my head right now…………oops….TMI. ;P

      • Josephine Kick@$$

        LMBO! I can see it now 🙂

      • Josephine Kick@$$

        Sorry sweetie, couldn’t help myself 😉

      • I know I love it! I will take the plunge with my hard earned donuts! Its a must have

      • @Josephine…..BWHAHAHAHAHA ….that is both Awesome and Frightening!! Awesome that you took the time to make that….I’m humbled………and frightening because you saved that picture and God knows what you’ll do with it next….LOL. Come to think of it, why am I missing a lock of my hair?!? Hmmm….”Curiouser and Curiouser”!

      • Josephine Kick@$$

        Yes Silly, I’ve saved a few pics, a girls gotta cover her butt, right ? (especially in light of certain situations) I’m glad you like it 😉

        Besides, you know I’m harmless… maybe (checking my spellbook)

        Wait, wait, I know, on FB you’re my fiance’ & I’m having your baby, but you don’t really know if it’s yours, so before you marry me you want a paternity test, then we’ll find out is Pimp’s!

  9. My post continued lol sorry on small screen lol anyway
    This also applies to f rinks ex when comparing the two different outfits. Also for all the event characters that aren’t premium they get a 10 increase on cash on there 1 hour jobs while in there robes compared to there regular outfit an 1 hour job like Moe for example. Are any of these new increases perminent
    Hope I explained it well thanks again.

    • Since that’s the way they are programmed, I’d expect it to be the way it stays. Makes sense to me since they do require you to spend your precious sprinklies on them.

  10. Josephine Kick@$$

    I’ll end up buying #2, but I was wondering, since I don’t have Frink yet, can I buy his skin (#314), and have it wait in my inventory like Barney’s from Christmas?

  11. Personally I got him as I plan to acquire all the stonecutters
    so in the scheme of all the event items like the pyramid etc
    I’m looking at the total cost Vs. him individually
    His stonecutter quest payouts are pretty decent 🙂

  12. Thanks again bunny but I think you misunderstood my question. The premium characters tied to this event are actually earning more cash ex on there for example 1 hour task compared to kerny an other premium characters sent on a 1 hour task that are not tied to the event. Are these new increased payouts permanent? An try this normally f rink makes 106 in cash in a hour then switch him to his robes an he makes 116 a hour. This also ap to

  13. Not related to this post but had to share this I have just completed pt10 of the stonecutters quests and went to krustyland after collecting from my buildings in springfield and I got lisa pop up saying something about taking a break incase we are been spied on then a ea one popped up and gave me 20 donuts to keep playing. Love it when I get free donuts keep them coming I say. Anyone else found this..

  14. I figured since Frink’s was only 12 donuts and I wanted both, that averages 36 donuts each which is not so bad. 😛

    I wonder why the huge difference in price between the two.

  15. Hi guys o had a quick question doesn’t he actually make more experience an cash compared to a regular premium character and also wouldn’t that be more then 50% percent bonus as well also on that note is this a permineny change for all the new higher payouts or just for the event? Thanks for all you guys do.

    • The money they make on tasks is separate from the bonus. The Bonus adds to ALL the earnings. Not just from him. Premium characters have always paid out on tasks at a higher rate, as they are premium and should make more money.

      You’re welcome. 😉
