Hey there Grumples.
Here we are, Phase 2 of the Event …. and here you all are panicking you just can’t make it or get enough of items to complete the requirements. Well, as usual, here is some Math to help you out and see how YOU can make it by just playing the TSTO Christmas Event.
All the information is very similar as in past events. The more time you spend in your game, the more characters you have to complete Bell Earning Actions, and the more Neighbors you visit daily, along with you just playing daily… you get will all contribute to YOUR individual results.
Now for the Breakdown
BELLS FROM ELVES IN YOUR TOWN
You will start collecting Elves and Bells pretty quickly, however the Elves won’t help payout Bells much until you get to Part 4 in the Project After-Party questline, place the Cannon, and are able to shoot Elves out of the Cannon. No worries though, until that point you can still collect Elves in the bottles and those counts will still show up once you get to Part 4 and complete the main Phase 2 info.
The Spawn Rate breaks down as the following:
3 Elves about Every
15 mins changed to 30 mins
40 MAX allowed in your town at a time
20 Bank if you go beyond the MAX. You will have to clear the MAX before they will start to show.
This works out to roughly
12 6 Elves an hour…but again, this all depends on where in the spawn YOU hit within that hour. For instance, if you visit just after a spawn and return just before a spawn…you will see a difference of Elves. You won’t know where they spawn, you have to look for them. Just watch your town and see if there is a pattern where they show up. (If you are quick enough, you will actually see the Bottles launched from above down into your game, and smash down releasing the Elves, who scatter once they’re released.)
BELLS FROM ELVES FROM THE ELF TUNNELS
Every 8 hours (as long as you are NOT maxed out on Elves), you will be able to tap on your Elf Tunnel and release and addition 4 Elves to bottle in your town. (Now I did see in my town something cool, but I do not know if it will stick or a glitch. The Tunnel continued to collect even though I wasn’t in my town. In other words I hit the 8 hrs twice and went into my town see TWO Elf head icons on my Tunnel. When I tapped on them, 8 Elves were released. Again, this may be a glitch so do not count on it.)
You will NOT see the Elves released from the Tunnels either. They auto appear randomly around your town, just like the others. You have to find them.
No matter how you get the Elves or how many you have bottled, they won’t help until you actually fire them out of the Cannon. To start off, you will have a total of 3 shots for 9 Elves @ 2 Bells each every 3 hrs 45 mins.
So, let’s break this down…
1 shot of 9 Elves @ 2 Bells each =18 Bells
18 Bells x 3 Shots = 54 Bells
So you could roughly earn 54 Bells under 4 hours daily. That is only the start. This is roughly 324 Bells Daily just starting out. Not bad at all.
This will change as you Upgrade your Cannon, but that info will be gone into more in depth in another post. The short of it is this, get as many Bells as you can to get the Cannon Control Building. Once you do, you will get Cogwheels from Elves too. Cogwheels upgrade the Cannon, upgrades equal faster Cannon fire times, upgrades equal MORE Bells for Elves fired, upgrades equal more Elves being able to be fired.
Upgrades are a good thing and will help determine just how fast you get through this Phase. It won’t happen overnight, so just focus on one Level at a time.
Day 1: 5 Extra Bells
Day 2: 10 Extra Bells
Day 3: 50 Extra Bells
Day 4: 100 Extra Bells
Day 5: 50 Cogwheels
Do not worry if you do not have the Cannon Control Building yet, the Cogwheels will still sit in limbo until you place it, then the ones you win will be added right away.
Now you have a basic idea of how to get Bells from just playing daily. Now for more extras that will add to your Bell Totals.
BELLS FROM NEIGHBORS
As with previous events, you can visit your neighbors to get help with the Event Currency. This Phase it is the Bells. Now, just like any other time, you will be limited on actions as you visit Neighbors. The following is the Breakdown of your Neighbor Visit Actions.
30 actions, 5 Bells per action (Double for Elf Cannon & Elf Tunnel)
30 actions, 3 Bells per action (Double for Elf Cannon & Elf Tunnel)
30 actions, 2 Bells per action (Double for Elf Cannon & Elf Tunnel)
30 actions, 1 Bells per action (Double for Elf Cannon & Elf Tunnel)
So that is a total of 120 Actions every 24 hours. YOUR Bell payout will depend on what you tap on at what point in the collections.
Going off the basics and NO extras, you can get at least 330 Bells Daily.
This is just from visiting neighbors, but do not stop there. If you have your FP at the MAX, you can also get that additional random FREE Donut from visiting neighbors. The amounts vary daily on what you get. The more you visit, the better the odds.
BELLS FROM COMPLETING QUESTLINES
Playing through the questlines will help you earn Bells too. Starting from Project After-Party Part 3, you can earn them from completion. 200 Bells each time. So clearing them out will help too.
So there you have it. MANY ways to hit the end target as well as earn the Personal Prizes for Phase 2. YOU just need to put in the time and effort. It may seem like you can’t keep up as first, but as you continue to unlock more and more and get further along, it will get easier and easier.
Where are YOU on the Bellss count? What items have YOU won so far from the Personal Prizes? Did this help you out to not worry so much? Let us know.
