Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Level 51 has arrived in Springfield! With the all new level Frank Grimes has come back from the dead! That’s right my friends…level 51 is a trip to the Ouija Board as previously deceased characters return from the grave! Now I know you may be trying to decide if this deceased plant worker is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Frank Grimes to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of raising this plant worker from the dead to YOUR Springfield!
Building/Decoration: Forgotten Grave
Character: Frank Grimes
Donut Price: 160 donuts
Bonus %: 3.75% to all Cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10
Level Requirement: Must be at Level 51 (unless you get the 2 week early access, when level first hit)
-Comes with a quest line (it’s ok, not great but ok)
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and xp than a freemium character
-Sweet bonus % on the grave at 3.75%
-Grimey is voiced!
-Questline is VERY Homer centric.
-No Character interaction after questline
-Frank only has 1 decent outdoor (visual) task
-Takes a while to actually unlock Frank. Several lengthy tasks of “digging at the grave” are required before he’ll show up in your game.
I’m a fan of Grimey. I think his questline is fun, not great, but still fun. I really like the bonus % payout on the Forgotten Grave as well. And as an added bonus, he’s voiced! All of those make for a good premium buy! So if you’re a premium player Grimey isn’t a bad pick up.
While there are a lot of things I like about Grimey, I do think there are better premium character/building combos out there. So if you’re a freemium player this may be one you’ll want to pass on for now. Hold off and purchase one of the better (less expensive) combinations.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you I will be purchasing Frank Grimes. However, this is NOT a Limited-Time Item so take your time with your thought process. Grimey will still be there in a few weeks. So if you’re on the fence or worried about saving up your donuts relax..there’s no rush to get him.
