Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Superhero Event is upon us and Springfield has been invaded with Superheros, creeping Criminals & a whole new Comic Book look! In the first Issue of the Superhero Event, you’ll see action (SPOILER Radioactive Man dies..), crime & pie! Lots and lots of pie!
The Event is broken up into 4 Issues, with each Issue containing part of the Story. To help you along with the story line you’ll get at least 3 prizes per Issue. Each prize will help further move you through the story and uncover what comes next! For Issue 1 you’re tasked with collecting Carbon Rods to unlock each prize! The first Issue 1 prize awarded at 400 Carbon Rods is Arbitrarium. A rare element that will help you upgrade your HQ and “Thwack” Crime event more!
So let’s take a closer look at this “Super” rare element and just how it can help you Upgrade your HQ!
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Below…
Once you’ve collected 400 Carbon Rods you’ll automatically be awarded Arbitrarium and you’ll see this message popup:
Now this won’t be like the other prizes, as Arbitrarium isn’t something you’ll tangibly get in your town. What achieving this prize accomplishes is you’ll now have the ability to collect Arbitrarium from ciminals and upgrade your HQ! So, don’t be confused if you don’t see it in your town or inventory..there’s nothing to see. 🙂
Once you’ve unlocked the Arbitrarium some dialogue will start up immediately between Fallout Boy and Frink, it’ll further explain Arbitrarium:
Superior-ior Squad HQ Pt. 1
Fallout Boy: Almighty Ore! That’s Arbitrarium.
Frink: Gloyven-moyven! Did you say Arbitrarium?! That’s the rarest element know to nerd or man!
Fallout Boy: Rare elements always produce crazy reactions! Let’s use it to upgrade our HQ and “thwack” crime even more!
Upgrade Your Superior Squad HQ
Fallout Boy: The Sky Finger needs a superhero name and I think I’ve got just the ticket! Flaming Finger! Oops, no flame. Digit of Death! That’s sorta grim. Wait, I’ve got it….The Hand of Justice!
Here’s the deal
Once you’ve unlocked Arbitrarium and ran through the dialogue a bit, you’ll unlock the ability for the Criminals you tap in your town to drop Arbitrarium in addition to Carbon Rods. They won’t always drop Arbitrarium, but it will occasionally fall with the Carbon Rods.
What does Arbitrarium Do?
Basically you’ll use collected Arbitrarium to upgrade your Superior Squad HQ building. Each level will require more Arbitrarium, and yes once you use it to upgrade to the next level it will disappear from your count. So it’s not a running total.
But as soon as you upgrade to Level 1 it’ll switch the building payout from in game cash to Event Currency!
And the more you upgrade the more currency you’ll get! Each level you increase will add +10 on the event currency for you. So with Carbon Rods, at level 1 you’ll earn 35 Carbon Rods, at Level 2 you’ll earn 45, at Level 3 you’ll earn 55 and so on. Remember, this is ONLY on the HQ payout. So you’ll earn this every 4hrs when the building is ready to be tapped.
What’s Hand of Justice Power?
The Hand of Justice, as Fallout Boy explains in the dialogue, is you. That’s your Superhero name for this event. And Hand of Justice Power is your ability to Tap Criminals. Each time you upgrade your Tap Radius will get bigger. (Similar to how the nail board upgrade worked during Halloween) At Level 0 it’s a fairly small tap zone that you can hit when you tap on a Criminal, as you increase your level that radius of your tap will start to spread out. So if there’s one close buy you’ll get 2 with one tap. The bigger it gets the more area 1 tap will cover. Thus increasing your Hand of Justice Powers 🙂
How Many Levels Are There?
Right now there doesn’t appear to be a max level…so you can keep upgrading throughout the entire event to earn tons of Even Currency and get lots of Criminals in 1 tap!
How Much Arbitrarium Do I Need to Collect to Level Up?
The higher you go, the more Arbitrarium you’ll need. Basically, just like the currency payout increases by 10 at each level, the Arbitrarium required will increase by 4 at each level.
Here’s a chart I created for the amount you’ll need with the payout through Level 50:
Remember Arbitrarium required is to achieve that Level…so you’ll need 4 Arbitrarium to achieve Level 1, 8 Arbitrarium to achieve Level 2 and so on…
|Level||Arbitrarium Required||Currency Pay Out|
So that my friends is the full breakdown of the Arbitrarium powers & just how beneficial collecting it and upgrading your HQ can be!
It’s really important to remember that increasing your HQ will not increase the amount of Currency paid out for tapping Criminals. The Currency increase comes when you collect from the HQ itself….every 4hrs.
