Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Level 55 hit our devices last week and with it arrived a long requested long lost brother of Homer…Herb Powell! 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 Herb Powell to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this successful brother to YOUR Springfield!
Building/Decoration: Powell Motors
Character: Herb Powell
Donut Price: 200 donuts
Conform-O-Meter: No impact
Level Requirement: Must be at Level 55, unless offered Early Access when the update first hit
-Comes with a quest line
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and xp than a freemium character
-Several of Herb’s tasks utilize Powell Motors
-If you also purchase The Homer (or already did) you’ll unlock a bonus questline if you have Herb too.
-One of the more memorable characters from Simpsons history, it’s Unky Herb!
-Not really a Springfield item/character. (Both are from Detroit)
Honestly, it’s Unky Herb…how can you say no? Yes, it’s way overpriced for a premium building/character combo. And yes, it doesn’t really belong in Springfield. But again, it’s Unky Herb! This one for me is a Premium player must buy if you’re any kind of a fan of The Simpsons…
Freemium players I would add this to your list of something to save up for. It’s another one of those long term goals for a lot of freemium players, in my opinion. However, I will say there are much better character/building combos in this game I’d grab from a practical standpoint before Unky Herb (like Akira, Coach K..even Luann), but it’s Unky Herb. So this may be one to save up for! (at least IMO anyway)
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 Herb (I honestly just love Unky Herb). However, this is NOT a Limited-Time Item so take your time with your thought process. Herb 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.
