Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Here we are in the final few hours of Terwilliger Act 2…are you ready for Act 3 to start up?!
I know many of you are stressing out about not earning enough items to craft those coveted items or not finishing the Act 2 questline or not getting enough gas masks to unlock all of the prizes…but don’t sweat it! Really. It’s going to be ok.
Let’s break down what’s leaving, what’s staying and what’s cha- cha- cha-changing, when Act 3 kicks off!
Note: Act 3 Offically Starts at 0800 GMT (4am EDT) on 5/12…
So, here’s what we know…
For a complete rundown on Act 3 prep check out this post from last week.
The good news is…nothing is leaving. You’ll still have plenty of chances to pick up those items you want!
What’s Staying…as is
And all of the rake and mutant seed purchase options.
ALL of the items you can craft!
Yes, that’s right ALL of the Act 1 AND Act 2 Craftable items will still be in the craft menu when Act 3 hits…so there’s NO RUSH to get anything. For a complete crafting guide for Act 1 check out this post…and for act 2 check out this post
Corn, DNA and Fertilizer
DNA, Corn and Fertilizer will be used and needed during Act 3. So whatever amounts you have will carry over into Act 3. (however Fertilizer won’t be needed as much as Corn and DNA) So keep collecting!
Mutant Seedlings- Yes…these lovable blobs will be sticking around for Act 3. So you can hang onto them if you want to get a head start on the new prize currency when Act 3 starts. Once Act 3 starts they’ll act the same as they did during Act 3 only now they’ll drop the Act 3 prize currency (instead of Spades) along with some craftable currency.
What’s Staying….but Changing
Act 2 Prizes
Once Act 2 is over the prizes you haven’t yet won will remain….BUT they’ll be moved to become craftable items. Which means you’ll need Fertilizer, DNA and Corn to craft them once Act 2 is over…
Once Act 2 is over Gas Masks will no longer be a currency in the event and they will be replaced by something else…and no, your Gas Mask count will not carry over. You’ll start all over again in earning the new currency from 0.
A lot of you are asking me what’s the best strategy for going into Act 3…and really that’s a personal choice. It depends on how you play and where you are in the event.
In otherwords…I cannot tell you what to do or don’t do. I can only tell you what I would/wouldn’t do.
I’ve outlined some of my recommendations (and how I’m playing) in our Act 3 Prep post, which can be found here.
Personally, I’ve been some saving my Mutant Seeds for Act 3 to start. This will give me a head start on earning the new prize currency, as well as help my neighbors get a head start as well. But to each his own…what works for me may not work for you.
Again…that’s what I did (and why I did it). What you want to do is up to you. You’ve got to do what makes sense to you…
Remember it takes 24hrs for the timers to reset, so if you’ve visited your neighbors already today you won’t be able to go into their towns right when Act 3 hits, you’ll need to wait the full 24hrs to start visits again.
What We Know/Speculate….
-New items will be added to craft (in addition to the old ones).
-New Act 3 Prizes will be added (Act 2 prizes move to craftables).
– Cecil’s Daily Tasks will continue into Act 3
-A new crafting currency will be added…in addition to DNA, Corn and Fertilizer
-More of the Terwilliger family will be unlocked as the event continues
The requirement to move onto Act 3 is completing the Act 2 questline (this means unlocking Sideshow Bob. I know some of you are stuck because you have no yet unlocked Mrs. K or Mayor Quimby. The Act 2 questline WILL remain in place for you once Act 3 starts…so don’t stress about it just yet.
What will happen is the same as what happened during Act 1 into Act 2. Some items will disappear (like the Act 2 prizes) and be replaced by new items (Act 3 prizes) BUT some other things may not yet appear for you until you complete that questline. So be patient when the new Act hits. If you haven’t yet completed the Act 2 questline (ie unlocked Sideshow Bob) that could be why you’re not seeing everything…so just be patient and continue to work to complete it.
So there you have it my friends…just some quick basics on what to do to get ready for Act 3 starting up in the morning. And, hopefully, a reassurance guide that there’s no need to panic! Remember…the most important advice we can give you…Don’t Spend Donuts to Craft Items, Rush Tasks or Get Prizes. This event is meant to be long and tedious. Everything can be achieved without spending donuts, as long as you put the time it. It may take you a while to get there, but you can and will get there. So don’t spend donuts to rush it…then you’ll just be bored.
Remember Act 2 Ends and Act 3 Starts at 0800 GMT (4am EDT) on 5/12/15..
