Should I Spend Donuts On the Wiccans?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The snow is falling in Springfield and that can only mean it’s Winter time in our pocket sized towns!  And of course it wouldn’t be an event in Springfield without premium items in our stores, just tempting us to spend sprinkles on them!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Wiccans to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Wiccan Trio to your Springfield…

Characters: The Wiccans
Donut Price: 110 Dounts
What Are They: Full character(s), with tasks.  3 characters act as 1, like Sherri and Teri.

Leaves Stores when the Event Ends

Pros
-Help earn Chicken Fingers and Books for Act 2
-Comes with a full questline
-Earn at a premium rate.  They’re supposed to earn at 150% of regular characters, BUT at the moment they do not.  They only earn at a standard premium rate.  (hint, hint for EA to fix it…)
-Fun outdoor tasks

Cons
-Over priced for just a character (even if it is 3 in one)
-Can’t earn Chicken Fingers and Books at the same time, you’ll have to choose which one you’ll need to earn at that time

Final Thought
Premium
So this is really the only new premium character offered for this event.  So if you’ve been saving up for characters, this isn’t a terrible pickup.  Especially if EA corrects the payout issue.  However, it’s still a meh character(s) in my mind.  So if you’re not completely sold…pass.

Freemium
Freemium players I’d pass on this one.  I know there are a bunch of you who save donuts just for characters..but this one is really meh in my opinion.  And they’re not needed to complete the event.  So personally, I’d save my freemium donuts for better characters on the horizon…

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you as a premium player, I’ll likely pass.  Doesn’t really do anything for me. Just remember these are limited-time, so if you’re thinking about grabbing them make sure you do before  it leaves our game on December 30th.

  1. Yay, EA fixed the bonus on The Wiccans and now it actually earns 350% on tasks as originally advertised. Instant buy for me cuz it’s like spending 36 donuts on a premium character but u have to buy it in threes.
