Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Terwilligers are making their way back into Springfield! And with this event there are a bunch of new premium items in our stores for purchase, and earlier last week another item was introduced for a limited-time…Captain Bob! 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 Captain Bob to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this wannabe opera star to YOUR Springfield!
Character: Captain Bob
Donut Price: 100 Donuts
What Does it Do: Skin for Sideshow Bob (no, this is NOT how you get Sideshow Bob. This is just an extra skin for him)
-Earns at a premium rate (50% more on all cash and XP)
-Comes with a questline
-Captain Bob has a couple of outdoor tasks
-Expensive for just a skin
-Offers no help to the Terwilliger Event. You’ll need regular Sideshow Bob to earn Crafting Materials, when he’s Captain Bob he won’t earn anything.
This is a nice to have, but do you really need it? While yes, Captain Bob does have some visual tasks (and earns at a premium rate) will you spend more time having Sideshow Bob as himself or as Captain Bob? If the answer is as Sideshow Bob, then it’s probably not worth it for you to get Captain Bob. Plus 100 donuts is pretty steep for a skin, even for a premium player.
I think this one is a freemium pass. In my mind you’re MUCH better off spending donuts on an actual character and not a skin for an existing character. So I think Captain Bob is a freemium pass for sure.
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 do think I’ll be passing on this one. Personally, I’ll be using Sideshow Bob as Sideshow Bob in my game the most often (come on, how can you resist that rake task?!). However, whatever you decide just remember that this skin will be leaving our stores when the Terwilliger Event ends so if you’re thinking about it getting it make sure you make your final decisions before the event ends or you’ll miss your chance.
Here’s a look at Captain Bob’s Tasks:
|Repair The Bilge Pump||1hr||$105, 26xp||Squidport Entrance|
|Carry Himself With Pride||4hrs||$260, 70xp||Visual|
|Press His Lapels||8hrs||$420, 120xp||Brown House|
