Hey there Superheroes!!
So you are just a very short time into this AMAZING new Superheroes Event and wondering if you are doing it right. If you are doing all you can to get those Carbon Rods as quickly as you can. Well this post is here to help you get an idea of how to get the most out of your daily game interactions.
To begin, all the information is very similar as in past events. The more time you spend in your game, the more chances you have at Carbon Rod Earning Actions. The more Neighbors you visit daily, along with you just playing daily… will all contribute to YOUR individual results.
Now for the Breakdown…
CARBON RODS FROM CRIMINALS IN YOUR TOWN
You will start collecting Carbon Rods fairly quickly once you get into the Full Event. A New Hero Arises Part 1 will kick off you starting to see and be able to Capture Criminals in your own town.
The Spawn Rate is a bit vague on just how many per Spawn, but we do at least know the following:
1 Criminal every 5 mins in your town
30 MAX allowed in your town at a time
Now there IS a Bank listed, but in the past we found this was sketchy and unreliable, so for player sake… I will not fully rely on it.
So let’s take a look at what YOU can earn in your town from just the Criminals alone. Every 2 1/2 hrs you will MAX out based on the 1 every 5 mins Criminal Spawn. To make it simpler, I will show a few options At just the 2hr mark.
Visit your town every 2 hours to get 24 Criminals giving 15 Carbon Rods each equals a Payout of 360 Carbon Rods every 2 hours.
360 Carbon Rods x 4 visits daily (every 2 hrs) = 1440
360 Carbon Rods x 5 visits daily (every 2 hrs) = 1800
360 Carbon Rods x 6 visits daily (every 2 hrs)= 2160
360 Carbon Rods x 7 visits daily (every 2 hrs)= 2520
360 Carbon Rods x 8 visits daily (every 2 hrs) = 2880
So as you can see, even just a minimal visit to your town every day can still yield you quite a few Carbon Rods. The daily average to shoot for right now is 3084.
Also as in past events, if you wait a lil bit in your town… it seems the Criminals will eventually come to where YOU are in the game.
In Death of a Hero Part 3, you can build the Super Squad HQ. Now it will NOT start to make Carbon Rods right away. (See Upgrade Post for more details.) You will need to start collecting a few Criminals first and unlock the Arbitrarium from Issue 1 Prizes with 400 Carbon Rods, which as you can see above should not take you too long.
Once the Arbitrarium is obtained, Criminals will start to drop it randomly too when they are tapped. As soon as you get just 4 of them, you can upgrade your HQ to Level 1 and start earning Carbon Rods from it.
Let’s look at a few options. I will only go up a few upgrade levels to give you an idea of how many you can get daily at even the lowest levels.
Level 1: 35 Carbon Rods every 4hrs
35 Carbon Rods x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 105
35 Carbon Rods x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 140
35 Carbon Rods x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 175
Level 2: 45 Carbon Rods every 4hrs
45 Carbon Rods x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 135
45 Carbon Rods x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 180
45 Carbon Rods x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 225
Level 3: 55 Carbon Rods every 4hrs
55 Carbon Rods x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 165
55 Carbon Rods x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 220
55 Carbon Rods x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 275
Level 4: 65 Carbon Rods every 4hrs
65 Carbon Rods x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 195
65 Carbon Rods x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 260
65 Carbon Rods x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 325
Level 5: 75 Carbon Rods every 4hrs
75 Carbon Rods x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 225
75 Carbon Rods x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 300
75 Carbon Rods x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 375
The more you level up, the more payout you will get. I have hardly done anything in one of my test games and I already just hit Level 6 with no problem.
CARBON RODS FROM PLAYING DAILY
If you just show up daily in your town, you will be rewarded with the Event Currency for doing so.
Day 1: 10 Extra Carbon Rods
Day 2: 20 Extra Carbon Rods
Day 3: 50 Extra Carbon Rods
Day 4: 100 Extra Carbon Rods
Day 5: 250 Extra Carbon Rods
Just make sure you visit at least once every 24hrs and you will get the Daily Rewards.
CARBON RODS FROM FELONS
This is another way to get some Carbon Rods. First, you will need to release a Felon. (For complete details, see the Burns State Prison Post.) You will get 1 every 8hrs, so release them as soon as one spawns at the Prison so you can send Characters to defeat them as much as possible. Having MORE is a good thing as you can only send ONE Character to get rid of ONE Felon at a time.
Each time you send a Character to get rid of a Felon, you will get a payout of Carbon Rods for completing the task. Right now every 4 hours. (Every 3 with Spider Pig.) The payout will depend how many “hits” the Felon has taken and how many hearts he has left.
Let’s take a look at just a basic attempt at the Felons with Fall Out Boy and Pie Man. Then one with Spider Pig. Again, it works best if you have at least TWO Felons running around for them to attack. The more the better.
Fall Out Boy & Pie Man
Felon at 3 Hearts
25 Carbon Rods (every 4 hrs) x 2 daily attempts = 50 Carbon Rods
Felon at 2 Hearts
75 Carbon Rods (every 4 hrs) x 2 daily attempts = 150 Carbon Rods
Felon at 1 Heart
150 Carbon Rods (every 4 hrs) x 2 daily attempts = 300 Carbon Rods
Felon at 3 Hearts
25 Carbon Rods (every 3hrs) x 1 daily attempts = 25 Carbon Rods
Felon at 2 Hearts
75 Carbon Rods (every 3hrs) x 1 daily attempts = 75 Carbon Rods
Felon at 1 Heart
150 Carbon Rods (every 3hrs) x 1 daily attempts = 150 Carbon Rods
As you can see, having Spider Pig will get you more Carbon Rods with less time spent in the game. The more Felons, the more chances at getting rid of them and getting more Carbon Rods so release them from the Prison as soon as they are ready.
Now you have a basic idea of how to get Carbon Rods from just playing daily. Now for more extras that will add to your Carbon Rod Totals. (See the complete Neighbor Visit Breakdown Post HERE.)
CARBON RODS FROM NEIGHBORS
As with previous events, you can visit your neighbors to get help with the Event Currency. Issue 1 is Carbon Rods. 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.
This will NOT start til the HQ is built and you get to New Hero Rises Part 2.
The less Neighbors you have, the less Carbon Rods you will get from the Red Telephones.
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 continuing to Capture Criminals. The amounts vary daily on what you get. The more you visit and more neighbors you have the better the odds.
There is also an added incentive. Once you all Issue 1 Carbon Rods (18500), you will given the option to continue to collect Carbon Rods and get the chance at those 3 Donut Mystery Boxes containing 1 2 or 3 donuts. Each additional 3000 Carbon Rods you earn past the 18500 will unlock the chance. If you don’t get 3 right away, a retry will cost $150,000 Each so make sure you’re ready if needed. This will continue until Issue 2 and the new Event Currency is launched in your game.
CARBON RODS FROM THE SUPERIOR SQUAD MEMBERSHIP
If you want even MORE from your Capturing Criminals in Neighbors towns, you can invest 90 Donuts in the Superior Squad Membership and double your Criminal Carbon Rod Payout.
So instead of 270 Carbon Rods a day from 90 Criminal Captures Actions you can earn 540 Carbon Rods daily from Criminal Captures. (See the Should I Buy Post on it HERE.)
CARBON RODS FROM RADIOACTIVE SYMBOLS
My apologies, this info somehow did not make the transfer when I posted the document.
This event is very Neighbor involved as well. When you go to a Neighbors town or they to yours and tap on that Red Telephone, it initiates the “Report Criminal” action. The one tapping on the Red Telephone gets 1 Carbon Rod for doing so and the one having their Building tapped on get an alert a Crime has been reported in their town and to hurry to respond. (This is also where that LOUD Siren comes into play.)
Now how does the payout work on the Radioactive Signal? Well as soon as the Building is tapped and the Signal launched a countdown begins. How long it takes for YOU to clear that Radioactive Signal will impact what payout YOU get. It breaks down as follows…
Signal first appears up to 3hrs 59mins = 4 Carbon Rods per Signal
4hrs to 7hrs 59mins = 3 Carbon Rods per Signal
8hrs to 11hrs 59mins= 2 Carbon Rods per Signal
12 hrs to 15hrs 59mins= 1 Carbon Rod per Signal
So as you can see, the sooner you clear those Signals the higher Carbon Rod payout you will get from each one. Clear them as fast as you can and as often as you can to allow your Neighbors visiting something to Report a Crime on. If you don’t clear them, your Neighbor will see no Red Telephone and have nothing to tap on Building wise.
(It is also really cool as it activates the animation on the building tapped.)
CARBON RODS FROM COMPLETING QUESTLINES
After Completing New Hero Rises Part 2, you will notice that the More tasks you complete throughout the event will start to unlock Carbon Rod Tasks.
Here are a few of those Characters tasks.
Again, these won’t appear until you unlock them via questlines.
So there you have it. MANY ways to hit the targets for the Personal Prizes in Issue 1. 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 Carbon Rods count? What items have YOU won so far from the Personal Prizes? How is your Criminal and Felon capturing going? Did you get the Membership? Did this help you out to not worry so much? Let us know.
