Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Wild West is alive and well in our Springfields! As the Wild West Event has hit our games and it’s full of old west inspired decorations, buildings & characters!
This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story. To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act. Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event. For the Third Act you’re tasked with collecting TNT () to unlock each prize!
The fifth Act 3 prize is awarded at 9,470 is the Blacksmith and Part & Parcel Buildings, because it’s not the Old West without a a blacksmith. Even Homer needs his “Iron Man” suit…
So let’s take a closer look at this fifth prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…
Once you’ve collected 9,470 you’ll automatically be awarded the Blacksmith and Part & Parcel Buildings and you’ll see these messages popup:
And you’ll have the option to store or place them in your Springfield immediately. Note: you won’t get the second popup message until you’ve cleared the first. (so place/store the Blacksmith to get the Part and Parcel popup)
Unlike the previous two prizes..these are just decorations for Springfield. The Blacksmith comes with a questline AND a permanent task for Homer. Where Part and Parcel comes with the ability to spawn bandits once you’ve leveled it up enough.
Here’s a look at both..
This one comes with a short questline for Homer…and yes, you can wait until the Event is over to finish it. In fact I recommend that’s what you do. Here’s a look at the questline:
Some Assembly Required Pt. 1
Build the Blacksmith- 8hrs
Make Homer Smith an Iron Suit- $275, 70xp
Some Assembly Required Pt. 2
Make Homer Use a Heavier Hammer- 6hrs, Earns $225, 55xp
Some Assembly Required Pt. 3
Make Homer Finish His Master Piece- 12hrs, Earns $420, 100xp
Once you’ve completed the questline, Homer will have an 8hr task at the Blacksmith. The task is Smith an Iron Suit, 8hrs and earns $275, 70xp
Here are some quick facts about the Blacksmith:
Build Time: 8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
Earns: $200, 70xp/12hrs
What Does it Do?: Building, so it earns an income. Homer has a task there and when in use it is animated. The side doors open.
And here’s the quick breakdown for the Part and Parcel (there is no questline with this one):
Build Time: 4hrs
Earns: $300/30xp/24hrs. Also earns Bandits/4hrs. The number of bandits earned is related to the level you are at the Town Plaza. Also, the ability to unlock this as a bandit hideout is dependent on unlocking it at the Town Plaza. Check out this post for more details on Town Plaza Level Ups
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
And there you have it the details behind the Blacksmith and Part & Parcel!
Well there is 1 prize after the Water Tower, 100 Coins. I’m not going to do separate posts about them as it’s pretty basic. Once you unlock it, more coins will be added to your coin total.
Here’s a quick breakdown…
Awarded at 14,780. This will add 100 Coins to your total Coins count (found in the Event Hub). This is not a tangible item for Springfield, it’s just 100 Coins added to your total on hand.
Next Tangible Prize for Springfield…
Longshot Skinner– Awarded at 19,280. This will be the next prize we cover in a rundown post.
So that my friends is the full breakdown of the fifth (and sixth) Act 3 prize!
