Should I Spend Donuts On the Blarney Castle?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well after a few hour absence, Gil is back in Springfield!  Why?  Because he’s feeling lucky and wants to sell you stuff you didn’t think you needed until Gil said you did!  (afte rall it worked on Moe & Homer)

So what’s he offering this time?  Well…for a limited-time (ie until, Monday 3/23) you can purchase the Blarney Castle!  Blarney Castle is a premium building for your Springfield.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering…”is this something I should take Gil up on?  Or am I better off saving my donuts for something better?”  Well…before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this good luck castle to YOUR Springfield!

Brandine Stopping St. Patrick’s Questline

Hey there Hoppereenos,

Bouncing by really quick as I am seeing a LOT of questions from players in regards to the St. Patrick’s Day questline if you own Brandine AND have her currently brewing a Spuckler. unlock_brandine

During O’Flan-again Part 6, there is a task for Cletus to “Catch Green Creatures” that also activates one for Brandine to “Prepare a Moonshine Bath”.

Due to my Brandine was a month in busy baby making it cost me 25 donuts to speed up the task to completion, birth the baby, and have her free to complete Part 6. (My fear is they knew this and it’s why they drastically dropped rush rate on her. Normally 800 to 1000 donuts, it is now smaller and more manageable, but still… Donut loss.)

As this is a situation there is NO way around without loss somewhere, EA was contacted and still waiting for word back… so… in usual fashion…. help me light up the forums on this one. Again, only way around this is she has to be stored and time lost on birth…. or spend the donuts. I don’t like either option.


(You can also contact them if you’d like.)

Is this stopping your progress? Did you Contact EA? Did you get any results? Let us know.


UPDATE: No solid confirmation of the fix as of yet, just “they are working on it” still. I am hoping that a fix does come soon, if not… it will be up to YOU. Is it worth it to store her? Pay to speed the birth? Or better off contacting EA to see if they will compensate you the cost it will take to speed her? Just remember if you DO reach out to EA, kindness goes a long way. 😉
