Turbo Tappin’ Level 45: Artie Ziff

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, Level 45 has dropped in our little tapping devices and it feels like the good old days of TSTO again!  Updates every other week, who doesn’t love that?!  And with Level 45 comes a man that makes most woman cringe…but hey he’s rich….Artie Ziff!

So now that there’s a new Level in our tapping devices, you know what that means right?  Time for another Turbo Tappin!  So with that let’s jump right in and Turbo Tap the Main Questline (Freemium) of Level 45!

As we mentioned in the Level 45 rundown post the main questline is started by Patty and a conversation between her and Selma!  Prompting you to place the ZiffCorp sign and unlock Artie Ziff.  So now….let’s get to Tappin’ shall we?!

  1. Italian Beauty

    I got the ZiffCorp Sign yesterday afternoon (May 28) for 178,750 cash. Such a nice surprise.

  2. So, my current quest for Arti is propose to Marge but that action is not available when I select Arti. Do I need to do something to unlock those actions? Any help is appreciated.

  3. Hi guys, can you help me?

    I’m almost finishing level 45, but still can’t buy Honest John’s Computers. Ziff Corp Sign isn’t available too.

    What should I do?

  4. I too have been on level 45 for ages now and hAving problems unlocking the ziff corp sign, i have completed all previous buildings that u mentioned above, i have also done part 1 of the way i wish i was task, i can see it has been ticked of on the box when i try to purchase the ziff corp sign, but its still lock, anyone got any ideas how i unlock this?

  5. i have been on level 45 for a while now, and even levelled up again but as you know i stain on 45, but i have not been able to start the artie ziff quest, I’m not sure why, am i missing something?

    • Have you completed all the builds before it? Did you built the Giant Wheel in K-Land and unlock Princess P (and complete Pt 1 of Princess and the pea brain)? Did you build Honest John’s Computers and unlock Database? One level holds up the next, you still have to complete them in order even if your XP level says your at a higher level… 🙂

  6. I think it was a big mistake to put forth such an expensive level in the middle of Clash of Clones. I needed to buy some land expansion to place the castles and so forth, and now I’m waiting several days to get enough money to pay for the Ziff Corp. office building. When the latest updates downloaded, the game slowed to a crawl. Just too much going on. They could’ve waited to do Level 45 until Clash of Clones was done.

    Also, I’ve never liked Artie as a character. Never.

  7. how do you get into contact with them about a missing item? i unlocked the hot air balloon and did not recieve in my prize,it wasn’t in my inventory either,is this a glitch please help?

  8. I find it funny that when you rotate the tennis court, the big Z for the Ziff Corp logo written backwards. 😀

  9. The prices at level 45 remind me of when I first started playing Tapped Out, I would have to play for several days before I had enough cash to purchase the next unlocked items. We did have a bit of a lull recently between updates so I was used to having lots of cash on hand, a quick level update and having to buy all the newly available land has made me POOR. The other thing, I had nuked and rebuilt my Springfield just before the new land was available…….something to be said about my awful timing. I think I’ll have a donut to console myself.

  10. This game ripped me off,I unlocked the hot air balloon,it said it could be found in my inventory and It’s not there? Why did my bro get it and I didn’t? I even cleaned out my inventory and left a comment here,no1 cares or they are to lazy to type? AM I the onlY 1 That had ******* problems with this?

    • FIRST of all…language. Please respect others and refrain from cursing.

      Second, we did comment on it. We told you you’ll have to contact EA for the missing Balloon. It’s not that we’re lazy and don’t care..We can’t do anything from our end, as we’re not EA and have ZERO access to games other than our own. So for the missing item you’ll have to contact EA. These glitches happen from time to time. It stinks when they do, but that’s what happens with games like this. Sometimes a glitch impacts some players and not others. Contact EA and they’ll replace it for you.

  11. The best part of CoC was I was spending virtually no in game cash on anything so I have stockpiled a ton of loot. I cant imagine I was the only one in that situation. Maybe that alone is why everything is so expensive.. OR.. EA is buying time in between now and the next update. Well played EA, well played.

    • I think it’s just the trend. As you get higher in the game it’s supposed to get harder to unlock/build stuff. So with each new level the price increase…

  12. Only 25 levels to go

  13. How come the prices drop so much from level to level? I’m at level 45 and if i would’ve waited to build the computer store, it would’ve save me all kinds of money. BIG price difference! As always, appreciate all you gals and wookie do! 😀

    • Each building has a base price. However, when the level first hits it’s at a significantly higher price point, since that’s the max level of the game at the moment and it’s supposed to be harder the higher you go. It’s the challenge aspect built into it. The prices drop as each level hits because you’re moving further and further from the max level.

      Keep in mind it takes 9 level updates to reach the base price. So for level 45 items you’d have to wait until level 54 to hit the base…that’s a long time to wait to build a building just for a price decrease…at least in my opinion.

  14. MAN !!!!
    This quest is expensive !!!

    • Yes, it certainly is! I guess that’ll teach everyone for saying they have a ton of money and nothing to spend it on!

    • I expected a $1m main building and a premium building. What I didn’t expect was a decoration and a second building being a requirement, adding up to another $1m. I read somewhere in the comments a few months ago that it was wise to keep $2-3m back in preparation for level updates. Glad I followed that advice. Truer now more than ever. Man!
