Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
With just a few days left of Clash of Clones (anyone else ready for it to be over?) EA has dropped a fun little premium update in our laps. The Shadow Knight, an all new costume for Bart, has hit our games and with that limited-time label I know it can be tempting to just buy, buy, buy! 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 Shadow Knight and his throne to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button (or lack their of) let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this fictional character to your Springield!
Costume/Decoration: Shadow Knight & his Throne
Donut Price: 200 Donuts
Bonus %: 2.75% bonus to all cash and xp
-Premium skin for Bart that earns 50% more Cash and XP than his normal skin
-2.75% Bonus is a nice bonus for the Throne
-Comes with a questline (you can check it out here)
-A few outdoor animations, and 1 that involves using the throne.
-You only see Bart with the costume if he’s using the throne
-No animation with the Throne
This is a hard one for me. As many of you know I’m a completest…I want EVERYTHING in this game. And usually have a hard time saying no to a new premium item. However with this one I’m really leaning on the “pass” side of things. The price is one factor, but the other is it’s just another skin. I already have several skins for Bart that I don’t really use (although I do love Kamp Bart… 🙂 ) so I just can’t justify spending that kinda “dough” on another skin for him. If it was a separate character, maybe…but a skin it’s just hard to justify in my mind. Plus, Halloween is looming on the horizon…I’d rather save my donuts and see what the next event has in store.
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’m 99% sure I’ll be passing on. Whatever you decide just remember, this is a Limited-time item…so if you’re thinking about it make sure you make your decision prior to the Clash of Clones Event leaving our games October 7th!
