Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well Part 1 of TSTO Christmas is coming to an end very soon. And many of you should have completed your Elf Tunnel tasks over the weekend. Once you complete all 19 days of tasks you’ll be awarded Zutroy!
Zutroy is a Freemium character (since he’s awarded for free) BUT he earns at a Premium rate! And I know many of you are wondering just what this character has to do with Christmas…and in reality, nothing. BUT his questline is fun & has a great message at the end. One that I think is perfect for this time of the year…
So now that we’ve got Zutroy, let’s take a look at his questline & just what happens when he enters your Springfield…
Note: I know many of you are suffering from a lack of Zutroy in your Springfield right now. This is a known glitch with EA..and one they are working to resolve. For now you can try some of the basic troubleshooting (you never know…your situation might now be glitch related & could be something else)…and if those steps don’t work then contact EA and let them know you’re impacted too. Details for missing Zutroy can be found on this post.

And that completes Zutroy’s Questline. A questline that won’t interfere too much with present collecting, so it’s something to keep you busy inbetween Elf Tapping!
Personally…I like this guy. It’s a free character for Springfield who earns at a premium rate. Not bad for those of you looking to increase your in game cash count! Plus, he’s got a couple of fun outdoor tasks. And in my opinion his qyestline is fun…it’s got a nice sentiment at the end, perfect for this time of the year!
