Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been partying a little too hard you know that Elves have taken over Springfield! Elves work hard and party even harder…so much so that even Santa bailed on Springfield! It’s your job to contain the Elves and send them back to the North Pole. In doing so you’ll earn Elf Bells..which will give you some awesome prizes!
With this event EA is repeating a similar prize structure to what they did for Halloween, only more prizes, and releasing the event (and prizes) in stages. For the second phase, which lasts until the event ends (Jan 14th), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Elf Bells. The first prize awarded at 1,000 Bells is the North Pole.
Let’s take a closer look at this pole, and just what happens when it enters your town…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 1,000 Elf Bells the North Pole will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 1,000 Bell mark this message will still popup and your Pole will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The North Pole will be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap on the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield:
Before you even place it in town…some minor dialogue between Homer & Lisa will popup. You will then be prompted with the task to place it, after that some more dialogue will popup. Here’s the full rundown:
The North Pole
Lisa: Cool, Dad, look! It’s the North Pole.
Homer: What’s it doing here? Shouldn’t it be in front of a barbershop or in North Dakota or something?
Lisa: Are you saying Springfield is not in North Dakota?
Homer: Well when you put it like that, let’s keep it!
Place the North Pole
Nelson’s Mom: Look at that beautiful pole! For five bucks I’ll show you what it’s good for.
Completed Task Earns 100 Elf Bells and 10XP
So here’s the deal with the North Pole:
-A decoration for Springfield.
-Does not add any bonus %
-Can only be placed on the Grass in Springfield
-Conform-o-Meter Vanity +200
So that about covers all the details on this Pole from the North!
