Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Terwilligers are making their way back into Springfield! And with Act 2 arrives Sideshow Bob’s vengeful Italian Wife! And if there’s anything you don’t wanna do is tick off Italian Female…especially when it comes to her family. Believe me…I know. 😉 ANYWAY…now I know you may be trying to decide if this 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 Francesca to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of bringing this passionate Italian to YOUR Springfield!
Building/Decoration: Italian Villa
Donut Price: 150 donuts
Earning: $55, 5xp/1hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10
Where Can I Place It?: Grass or Pavement
-Comes with a quest line (heavily involves Marge, as well. So finally something for her to do)
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and xp than a freemium character
-Francesca is in the Criminal group, therefore she’ll have a 4hr task to earn more Corn on Monsarno.
-Italian Villa is a nice looking building, and will be used by Francesca.
-Francesca is not voiced
-No additional Currency Earning Tasks (Gas Masks or whatever is coming up for Act 3)
I’m a fan of this combo. Francesca makes me giggle and the questline is pretty funny. Not a fan of the fact that she’ll help you earn more corn (not as hot a commodity as Fertilizer..but a task is a task). It is on the pricey side for a building/character combo, but still not the craziest priced. So this is one I’d say if you want it and you have the donuts, go for it. Just remember, it’s only Act Two and more is coming. So if you’re a premium player and tight on donuts you may want to hold off for now. There’s no benefit to adding Francesca now or at the end of the event.
While there are a lot of things I like about Francesca and the Villa, I would hold off (at least for now) if I were a freemium player and donuts were harder to come by. There’s still a lot more to see in this event, and you never know what’s going to hit the store. So at least for now, I’d pass on this combo as a freemium player.
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 Francesca. However, this is one item in the store that will be around for the entire event. So you don’t have to make a decision right away, Francesca will still be in the store when Act 3 hits. So if you want to hold off for now and wait to see what else arrives, that may be your better bet.
