Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
We’ve got a little Stonecutter Black Market sale going on in Springfield right now. Items from the original Stonecutters Event are back in Springfield for a limited-time. While a lot of players will already have the items, I know many TSTO noooobs are wondering if any of the items are worth adding to their Springfield. So we’re here to break it all down for you!
Wondering if you should add any of the Wave 1 items to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these secret society items to your Springfield!
Remember: These items WILL leave our games (for purchase) on 2/7/15 at 0800 GMT (3am EST)
We’re going to do these similar to how we’ve done Premium rewind items in the past…we’ll break each one down briefly & link back to the older posts about each one. Let’s start with the Stonecutter Skins…
Skins: Number 12, 14, 67
Donut Price: 40 Donuts Each (Number 12, 14) 50 Donuts Each (Number 67)
-Limited-Time Stonecutter Skins
– Each one earns at a premium rate, 50% more on all cash and XP
-Completes Stonecutter Sets
-Lackluster tasks, all of them are indoors
-Must have/buy the Stonecutter Lodge in order to purchase these
-They were all free during the event, and now their pricey for just skins.
Premium OR Freemium…
Unless you just missed 1 of these and the uncompleted character set is driving you nuts…DO NOT PURCHASE THESE. Save your donuts. While yes, they earn at a Premium Rate (although Arnie always earns at a premium rate) they’re just not worth the donuts. Save those sprinkles for something better 🙂
Building: Abandoned Store
Donut Price: 30 Donuts
Payout: $500,45xp Every 24hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +10
-Reasonably priced for a premium building.
-Nice fit with the rest of the Stonecutter Items
-No characters have tasks with the building
-No questline associated with it
-No animation associated with it after the Stonecutter Event ends
Not a bad investment for the price…BUT I’d rather save my donuts for something that actually has a character task.
Don’t waste your donuts. There are no character tasks associated with the building. So it will just sit…abandoned.
Item: Stone of Triumph
Donut Price: 75 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Vanity +100
Bonus %: None
Honestly I don’t need to do a Pros and Cons on this one. It’s a big rock that will sit in your Springfield. It doesn’t earn money & offers no bonus %. It also only impacts Vanity, which is the easiest to max out in your town. IF you buy this it’s for one reason and one reason only. How badly do you want to see this task…
This does require you to have #908, so you’ll have to have/buy the Lodge first.
IF you really want this task, grab the stone. If it’s something you think you can live with out…save your donuts for something better. Personally, I don’t think I’ve used #908 since Stonecutters so I haven’t seen this task since then.
Of course that’s just my two-cents! I can’t tell you what you should or should buy. I can only tell you what I would do & honestly I’d pass on all of these right now. Although I do own the Abandoned Warehouse & paid donuts for it last time around. It’s up to you to make that final decision. Just remember…whatever you decide these items WILL leave our games (for purchase) on 2/7/15 at 0800 GMT (3am EST) so make your final decisions quickly!
