Hey there Mischeif Makers!!
Act One has ended and Act Two is in full swing. There is now a new Material for Event Currency to look toward earning, the Gas Masks. But I bet all this information, numbers, calculations, and need for items has got your head spinning? No worries, we are here to help as usual. Let’s hop on in, shall we?
NOTE: These calculations are now factoring the lower rate of 3 Gas Masks per Mutant Smashed. Until we get word on why it dropped from 5 to 3, we will use that number.
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 Gas Mask Earning Actions. The more Neighbors you visit daily, along with you just playing daily… will all contribute to YOUR individual results.
LEVEL UP MONSARNO
Here we are back to the similar information as Act One. Leveling up. It will help, to a point. More so to unlock all the extra tasks for Characters to drop items you need. In Act Two, it will be necessary to help you gain DNA strands.
Here’s the breakdown…
|8||1050||175||Highrollers for DNA|
|9||1200||200||Increases Corn Payout from jobs|
|10||1350||225||Kooks for Fertilizer|
|11||1500||250||Increases Fertilizer Payout from jobs|
|12||1650||275||Brainiacs for DNA + Library|
|13||1800||300||Increases DNA Payout from jobs|
|14||1950||325||Civil Servants for Corn + Human Resources|
|15||2100||350||Increases Corn Payout from jobs|
|16||2250||375||Celebrities for DNA|
|17||2400||400||Increases Fertilizer Payout from jobs|
|18||2550||425||Increases Corn Payout from jobs|
|19||2700||450||Increases DNA Payout from jobs|
|20||2850||475||Increases DNA, Fertilizer & Corn Payout from Jobs|
|21+||150 Each lvl||25 Each level||Increases DNA, Fertilizer & Corn Payout from Jobs|
With Act Two, another element of an item to Upgrade has been placed into our towns. The Herbicide Squirter is a FREE item you’ll unlock once you’ve completed The Soup Thickens Pt. 4 and started The Science of Cooking (questline walkthrough is here)
But what will this do to help? As you upgrade the Herbicide Squirter, your “Kill Zone” will increase when you try to tap on the now Mutant Bobs running around. So when you tap the screen, you will see a lil circle kind of span out from under your finger and span out in the area you tapped, showing you your “Tap Radius”. Any Mutant in that radius will be smashed and killed. That means less tapping and quicker clearing of them when you get in your game.
Next helpful item is HIGHER Material payouts. As you Level up the Herbicide Squirter, you will start to see yourself earning MORE corn, fertilizer, and DNA, the higher up it goes. Short story long… you pay into it Materials… it gives you more back.
|Level||Requirement||Gas Mask Payout
|16+||+ 60 of Each for Each Level increase||3||25||Yes|
As you can see, if you at least Level Up to 2-4 it will add and extra 3 Material Items to each tap. That can add up fast. Almost double of the normal 4 payout. It will help you immensely to get those items you want.
MATERIALS FROM MUTANT BOBS IN YOUR TOWN
Once you get into the new Act Two questline, The Soup Thickens Part 1, you will be introduced to this Act Two’s main source of Event Currency, the Mutant Clone Bobs. Essentially like Corn husks (which is why some of you may notice them putting butter on themselves). Lol. They will help you with the New Event Currency, Gas Masks, along with the other needed Materials. DNA, Corn, and Fertilizer.
Spawn at least 1 every 5 mins
40 MAX in your town at one time
There is NO Bank on this one, so once you reach MAX no more will spawn till you clear some out and wait another 5 mins for more to come. So at roughly 3 hrs 20 mins you are looking at hitting your MAX of 40.
They roam all over town and will hide behind Buildings and Decorations. So use your “Movement Menu” to shut down all the items but Characters, then scan your town to see if you can locate any hidden.
Plus ONE out of the Following Materials
So let’s figure out a few scenarios to see just what the Mutant Bob Clones can earn for you in Gas Masks…
|Visit Time||Mutant Bob Clones||Gas Masks|
|Every 2 hrs||24||72|
|Every 4 hrs||48||144|
|Every 6 hrs||96||288|
Then we will figure a middle ground, how many Gas Masks can you get if you Visit your town every 3 hrs (If you wait 4 hrs, you will be past the max of 40)?
|Times A Day||Gas Masks|
Visiting your town to squash Mutant Bob Clones every 3 hours a day, at least 6 times a day (18hrs) will give you 648 Gas Masks Total A Day.
MATERIALS FROM MUTANT SEEDLINGS IN YOUR TOWN
MAX of 10 in your town at a time
You should have seen some of these guys bouncing round your town from a Neighbor at this point. It is beneficial to BOTH of you to tap them as soon as you see them. If you wait too long, ONLY your Neighbor will benefit from leaving them there. These guys usually first appear in the Sidewalk or Boardwalks of Springfield, but will quickly bounce off. Just like Sideshow Bob, they will disappear into Buildings and Decorations. So get them while you can.
If you squish the Mutant Seedling BEFORE 4hrs, both You & Your Neighbor that left it will get ONE of the following Material Breakdowns…
ONE of the following
4 Gas Masks and Occasionally One of the following…
If you do NOT squish the Mutant Seedling within 4 hours and they disappear for good, ONLY Your Neighbor will get ONE of the following Materials Breakdowns…
ONE of the following
2 Gas Masks and Occasionally One of the following…
and YOU GET NOTHING.
In other words SQUISH THEM. This way you both get something from the drop. As far as WHAT you might get, the Gas Masks tend to be Rare and the Corn & Fertilizer more Common.
Once time runs out or after your neighbor squishes them, you will receive a pop up in your game telling you how much additional items you just collected. Keep in mind, this will require them to exit out and their game sync up. As well as you exiting out, going back in, and allowing for that data to sync up to your town. So you may not see the info instantly.
MAX Mutant Seedlings you can Drop Off
This is the amounts you can leave when visiting and the time you have for them to be squished. Make sure to spread them round as many Neighbors as you can. You will know how many you can drop off by the icon in the top Right Corner of that Neighbor’s town. You will also know how many YOU have left by the counts in lower Left Corner of the Neighbor Screen.
10 Total to your Neighbors (4hr timer to payout)
5 Total to the OTHER Springfield (24 hr timer to payout)
If your Neighbors town is already FULL with Mutant Seedlings, you will see this message…
GAS MASKS FROM MONSARNO RESEARCH
Just like Act One, the Monsarno Research will continue to payout 120 of the Event Currency, so this time Gas Masks. The Payout is every 8hrs. So just visiting twice a day and collecting Rent on Monsarno Research will give you 240 Gas Masks Total Daily
GAS MASKS FROM QUESTLINES
GAS MASKS FROM RANDOM CHARACTER TASKS
Just like in Act One, Act Two will also have you complete Random Tasks to earn Materials that you would probably already be sending your Characters on anyway. These will trigger at the END of the Act 2 questline. The Bonus part to this is on top of the Material you will get from completing the task, if it is triggered by the Random Task Red Box you will also receive and additional 100 Gas Masks to help with your Personal Prize Goals.
Now you have a basic idea of how to get Materials from just playing daily, let’s look at how having Neighbors will help you in this event.
GAS MASKS FROM NEIGHBORS
The Mutant Bob Clones along with the Mutant Veggies are pretty much replacing the Building taps in your Neighbors towns. So you will now be tapping them to get payouts for FP, XP, $, and Game Currency. In this case, Spades. So what will you get by tapping on through your Neighbors?
1 Gas Mask Per Mutant Veggies or Bob Clones
MAX of 3 Mutant Veggies/Bob Clones per Neighbor per 24 hours
90 Mutant Veggies/Bob Clones Daily Actions per 24hrs
This averages out 3 Actions a Neighbor for roughly 30 Neighbors Total.
So if you visit several of your Neighbors Daily, you can get an extra 90 Gas MasksDaily.
GAS MASKS FROM FARMING LICENSE
If you want to spend some of your Donuts to help you in getting MORE Gas Masks from you 90 Daily Neighbor Actions, then invest in the Farming License. The Farming License will double ONLY your 90 Daily Neighbor Actions tapping Mutant Veggies/Bob Clones. So with the purchase, you can get 180 Gas Masks Daily.
OVERALL ROUGH MATH
To give you an idea of just what can happen in a day in your game, here are some general numbers to show you. Keep in mind, these are on the LOW end of it all. Adding daily tasks, leveling up, Mutant Seedlings, etc… these additions will all drastically increase these numbers. I just wanted you to see what even a minimal effort daily can yield in your game. For instance, just leveling up Herbicide to 2 will almost DOUBLE the payouts on Corn, DNA, and Fertilizer from Mutant Bob Clones.
With minimal effort in your town daily, you can easily earn at LEAST 1356 Gas Masks Daily.
- Monsarno Research: 120 Gas Masks Every 8hrs X twice a day (16hrs)= 240 Gas Masks
- Mutant Bob Clones/Veggies Neighbors: 90 Daily Neighbor Actions = 90 Gas Masks
- Mutant Bob Clones Springfield: 24 every 2 hrs x 8 times Daily (16hrs)= 192 Clones/576 Gas Masks
- Cecil’s Daily Tasks: 150 per Task completion. 4 Daily Tasks. 3 Daily Tasks x 150= 450 Gas Masks
With minimal effort in your town daily, you can easily earn at LEAST 300 DNA Strands Daily
- Monsarno Level 8/Herbicide Level 1: Using only 5 out of the possible High Rollers, Gamble on the Future, 12hrs, 5 DNA. 5 High Rollers x 5 DNA each = 25 DNA Daily
- Mutant Bob Clones Springfield: Tap at least 100 Mutants, roughly 20 will drop DNA. 20 Mutant Bob Clones x 4 DNA each = 80 DNA Daily
- Cecil’s Daily Tasks: 3rd & 4th Task DNA Payout. 60 DNA 3rd Task + 135 DNA 4th Task = 195 DNA Daily
With minimal effort in your town daily, you can easily earn at LEAST 277 Corn Daily
- Monsarno Level 8/Herbicide Level 1: Using only 5 Criminals, Be Sold to a Private Company, 4hrs, 3 Corn. 5 Criminals x 4 Corn tasks a day (16hrs) = 60 Corn Daily
- Monsarno Level 8/Herbicide Level 1: Using only 5 Youngster, Eat Too Much Candy Corn, 8hrs, 5 Corn. 5 Youngsters x 2 Corn tasks a day (16hrs) = 50 Corn Daily
- Monsarno Level 8/Herbicide Level 1: Using only 3 Glutton, Help Feed the Hunger, 16hrs, 9 Corn. 3 Glutton x 1 Corn tasks a day = 27 Corn Daily
- Mutant Bob Clones Springfield: Tap at least 100 Mutants, roughly 30 will drop Corn. 30 Mutant Bob Clones x 4 DNA each = 120 Corn Daily
- Cecil’s Daily Tasks: 2nd Task Corn Payout. 20 Corn Payout Daily
With minimal effort in your town daily, you can easily earn at LEAST 725 Fertilizer Daily
- Monsarno Level 8/Herbicide Level 1:Using only 5 Seniors, Don’t Care About the Future, 2hrs, 5 Fertilizer. 5 Seniors x 8 Fertilizer tasks a day (16hrs) = 200 Fertilizer Daily
- Monsarno Level 8/Herbicide Level 1:Using only 5 Dimwits, Make a Donation For Science, 8hrs, 14 Fertilizer. 5 Dimwits x 2 Fertilizer tasks a day (16hrs) = 140 Fertilizer Daily
- Monsarno Level 8/Herbicide Level 1: Using only 5 Pessimist, Conclude It’s All Pointless, 4hrs, 8 Fertilizer. 5 Pessimists x 4 Fertilizer tasks a day (16hrs) = 160 Fertilizer Daily
- Mutant Bob Clones Springfield: Tap at least 100 Mutants, roughly 50 will drop Fertilizer. 50 Mutant Bob Clones x 4 Fertilizer each = 200 Fertilizer Daily
- Cecil’s Daily Tasks: 1st Task Fertilizer Payout. 25 Fertilizer Payout Daily
As you can see there are MANY ways of getting the Materials you will need to progress through this event. The Gas Masks can be earned quickly, there really is a lot of ways to hit the daily Targets. Just remember, slow at first… then it will increase fast once you get more Upgrades and Characters involved.
Where are YOU on the Gas Masks count? What items have YOU won so far from the Personal Prizes? Level Up the Herbicide yet? Did this help you out to not worry so much? Let us know.
