Winter 2016 Act 2 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to the wee early morning hours…at least here on the East Coast and Act 2 of the Winter Event is upon us….so have at it my friends!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Lisa will start this for you with dialogue between her and Willie.  This will be followed by two 6s tasks, one for Lisa and then one for Homer.  You’ll then unlock a new skin for Willie, and that’ll be followed by a 12hr task for Lovejoy, 1hr task for Willie, and 3 Anti Pagans.

Act 2 runs until December 30th

Just what does Act 2 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…pagan-homer-winter-2016

New Prize Currency for Act 2.

indicator_xmas2016_brooch Brooches 

So the ability to earn Antlers is now gone.  Your counter prize track for Act 2 has reset to zero because you have zero Brooches.  So forget about the Antlers and now it’s time to start over with Brooches.

You’ll earn Brooches very similar to how you earned Antlers in Act 1….

And they’ll yield 15 indicator_xmas2016_brooch, 4 ico_cur_xmas2016_runestones_lg and 1 ico_cur_xmas2016_guiltdust_lg per tap.  And for those curious..because I never post this for Act 1…they spawn at a rate of ever 10 minutes, there’s a max of 15 allowed in your town with a bank of 15.


Offering (Springhenge Changes)

Catnip and Figurines are no longer available to earn.

Instead for Act 2 you’ll have two new items to collect for offerings to trade in..

4hr task at each location, 15 for freemium, 25 for premium payout

The characters are pretty much the same…

charactersets_willie_satyr You’ll get him for free once you complete the first two 6s tasks with Lisa and Homer at the start of Act 2.

Bonuts are still there after prize track is complete.


Act 1 Prizes…

If you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “ACT ONE PRIZES” tab in the Personal Prizes area. As you can no longer collect items for them, your only option now is to pay donuts to outright buy each one left at the point you left off at. (Just like every other event recently.)


Act 2 Crafting

Crafting remains, as it was during Act 1, for Act 2.

You can still earn Runestones for crafting by tapping Pagans and completing hand-ins at Springhenge daily.  You’ll also earn some via the prize track.


New Items in the Store..

sidebar_xmas2016_paganmembershipPagan Membership- Price as dropped to 30 Donuts…not worth it…

 

charactersets_thewiccangirlsThe Wiccans- 110 Donuts (Character, some of you are reporting a bonus % with them.  If you see one, it’s a mistake.  They’re characters so they shouldn’t come with one.  Odds are if you see it, it’ll be taken away.  So don’t buy them based on a bonus %.  Again they’re Characters.)

Returning

unlock_babygeraldBaby Gerald- 100 Donuts

unlock_mrburns_whitewitchWhite Witch Burns- 60 Donuts, Should I Buy

unlock_kingwinter kingwinterscave_menuKing Winter and His Cave- 175 Donuts, with a 75 Donut Rebate. Net 100 Donuts, Should I Buy


Important to note this is just phase one of Act 2, lots more stuff coming on December 21st for Act 2…so if you don’t see something you thought was coming, it’s likely because it hasn’t hit yet. And is expected to hit on the 21st…


And before you ask…

Here’s a list of posts we’re working on that should be up soon…

-Act 2 Calendar
-Act 2 walkthrough
-SIB for New Content
-And more!

However, keep in mind today is Sunday.  So we will not have any more postings today, beyond the Open Thread.  More content will come your way tomorrow, as it’s still important for us to take the day and spend time with our families.


And that my friends concludes the quick rundown of the Winter Event Act 2!

Remember this is just a quick rundown…as we have time to play through Act 2 ourselves we’ll break everything down in more detail.  If you need help with the basics check out the Winter Event Page in the meantime.

Thoughts on Act 2?  Just like Act 1?  Excited about these prizes?  How’d you do with your Act 1 prizes?  Will you be buying any of the new premium items? Sound off in the comments below.  You know we love hearing from you!

  1. So upset they didn’t bring back the Christmas lights as an option to buy for the houses in Springfield. I didn’t get them last year and was really looking forward to it since then! Stupid EA and their pagan update. I wanted real Christmas stuff 🙁

  2. FYI, you get a free Christmas tree (.65% bonus) during Maggie Star event.

  3. Have 1500 chicken fingers. All the exchanges keel coming up as spell books. Any ideas how to balance out?

    • Other than using your one-per-day dismissal and hope that it doesn’t just replace it with another spell book exchange (which is what’s been happening to me) and using your Wiccans (if you gave them) to make spell books instead of chicken fingers, there’s really nothing you can do. I feel your pain though…after being able to keep things relatively balanced through the event, I’ve been in a bad streak just like yours.

    • At one point I had over 800 chicken fingers. I started only using small offerings and the number of chicken fingers being used increased greatly. Now I only have 40 chicken fingers.

  4. Whenever I have tried to tap the gnome all I ever get is an arrow in the top left hand corner. I can’t do anything. Does anyone know why. I can’t seem to upgrade but yet as an anonymous player it does stuff that mine won’t. Like quests, etc. I have been playing for three years

  5. Just throwing this out here. I just finished getting all the crafting prizes. Which ones do you think will turn into premium items (i.e give %bonus) in the future?

  6. I’m hardly getting the option to trade in chicken fingers for broaches. I have over 500 chicken fingers and only 15 books to trade in because it keeps only asking for books. Has anyone else had this happen?

  7. what is the third currency that they keep giving me when i buy a premium item, it looks like tickets?

  8. I can’t get homer or Lisa’s 6s task or Satyr Willie. I have tried everything for days. Please help.

  9. Considering the Wiccans are premium characters, why wouldn’t they receive a bonus % on all their jobs? The rest of our premium characters do. I’m honestly confused and was about to purchase them 🤔

  10. The Wiccans can also collect chicken fingers So one would have to decide if you want them to collect Book of Shadows or Chicken Fingers.

  11. Help! I’m stuck. I’m supposed to use Satyr Willie when I place the devil snowman but now it looks like I don’t have Satyr Willie anymore. What can I do?

  12. I have no Satyr Willie or pagans and no beginning quest! Help!!

  13. I wish their was and inventory category for items that gave an xp bonus. Please!
    I shouldn’t need a homemade excel spreadsheet to play a game!

  14. I see that I’m not the only one not getting Satire Willy (what a strange thing to say)

    • When you click on the book in your task bar you will see that Lisa has a job. Make sure Lisa is free at that time to do a 6 second job. Also, make sure Homer is available as well as he will have a 6 second job as well. Once you have completed both tasks you will get more dialog with Willie, Moe, Rev Lovejoy etal. You will then get Satyr Willie. You will then start the I WIllie Follow You Into The Dark Part 1
      Make Rev Lovejoy Prepare 50 Gallons of Holy Water 12hrs
      Make the Anti-Pagans Spray Satyr Willie (3) 60 Min
      Make Satyr Willie Get Sprayed 80 Min

  15. Still no 6s tasks for Lisa and Homer and so no Satyr Willie for the task I have that needs him. *sigh*

  16. A valuable lesson, no matter the masthead, always check who is providing the info.

  17. I didnt receive satyr Willie after completing the quest line for Lisa and Homer. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    • What quetline are you on? What’s the name of it?

      • When you get the Devil Snowman place him there is some text between Lisa and Satyr Willie. Then the red jewel shows up in your task bar. When you click on it, it shows Place Devil Snowman 1/1 Done then under that is Make Satyr Willie Eat Heartily. Task is Devil Snowman

        • For mine, it just shows the satire willy task, but you can’t select it. Also that skin isn’t there, and if I select everyone to do a 4 hour task for example, willy doesn’t go. Like he’s in q to do this satire willy task, but it’s not there

      • When you click on the book in your task bar you will see that Lisa has a job. Make sure Lisa is free at that time to do a 6 second job. Also, make sure Homer is available as well as he will have a 6 second job as well. Once you have completed both tasks you will get more dialog with Willie, Moe, Rev Lovejoy etal. You will then get Satyr Willie. You will then start the I WIllie Follow You Into The Dark Part 1
        Make Rev Lovejoy Prepare 50 Gallons of Holy Water 12hrs
        Make the Anti-Pagans Spray Satyr Willie (3) 60 Min
        Make Satyr Willie Get Sprayed 80 Min

  18. Anyone know why there is a job for all characters to find out about Christmas? It is 6s long. I assume some sort of bonusbit not sure.

    • I was wondering about this too! Came here looking to see if anyone had an answer…

    • MATT – No. I was wondering the same thing too. Sent Maud on it & she just went to the library. I’ll send 10+ later today just to make sure I don’t miss out on anything…will come back & post if I get free Donuts or anything☺️….💜X

      • I sent everyone there just for fun. But then, to make a chunk of money, I just kept sending 7 characters (which was the number of characters I could send in six seconds) over and over again.

    • I wondered this too. There was a quest at the start of the event which used it; perhaps this is a hangover from that.

  19. I had spent a few days in the mountains of BC during act one and I was behind the whole time… but I was able to grind my way to the Parson yesterday at 5:30pm. Today I got up and bought the winter king and the witches. So far, so good!

  20. Noooooooooooooo!!!! I went into the game this morning, Act II started, and it didn’t even register in my mind that this was happening until a friend sent me a PM asking me if I’d gotten all the Act I prizes. Nope, I didn’t get the cult flyer saucer *or* the flying saucer. Is it worth 25 donuts to get the flying saucer? How many donuts would I need to get the Pastor–and is he worth it? I’m bummed because I’ve been tapping diligently & thought I was doing well with this event.

    • It came unexpectedly for me as well. I also failed to get the flying saucer too 🙁 I wish the game would give in-game notifications of upcoming changes as well as when limited time items about to leave the store.

    • VERYMIR- Flying saucer is huge, looks like a hat & hovers when tapped. A bit naff, imo. The Parson, however, is super cool. His 24hr task is fun & he’ll be forever on that one in my game😂…..💜X

      • ::sob:: I don’t have enough donuts to get the Parson. Hope he’ll turn up again in a later event or special offer.

  21. is anyone else having trouble collecting runestones – I keep grinding and grinding and it seems like it takes forever. It seems like i’ve been trying to craft the pagan hall for days.

  22. I did the tasks but did not get Satyr willie. How can I get him?

  23. Somewhat weird, the prize track lists 12,150 as the amount required for the second prize. The little think in the task book is 11,350. Interesting error.

  24. So what’s this about gift vouchers for mystery prizes? Am I missing something???

  25. Love the new look to the pagans. Miss the sound of the antlers. Awesome prizes!

    • I miss that sound, too!

      The pagans (both versions) are the first of this type of event NPC that I would actually want to own after the event. Wonder if they’ll be for sale? The last couple of events they didn’t sell those afterwards.
