Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Pagan Bonfire, Ruin Bundle, Mayan Marge or Mayan Calendar (and God)?

Note: Gil is back in town today, I’ll cover his offer tomorrow…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time to grab toast as we travel back…wayyyy back…in time with Homer in the all new TTT (Time Travel Toaster) event!  Homer’s taken us back to the Egyptian Era and we’ve got Pharaohs, Pyramids & of course other Egyptian items in our Springfield just tempting us with those sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 Pagan Bonfire, Ruin Bundle, Mayan Marge or Mayan Calendar (and God) to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Item: Pagan Bonfire
170 Donuts with a 50 Donut rebate, NET 120 Donuts
4.50% bonus on all cash and XP and $135, 15xp/4hrs
What Does It Do?:
Earns income and has a task for The Simpsons Family
Previous Post: Should I Buy
My Opinion On It Now:
Meh.  It’s still pretty expensive (even with the rebate).  While it’s a nice bonus % there are far better items in the game for bonus %. It is nice that it comes with a task and gives a cash payout as if you like it grab it.  Otherwise pass.

Item: Ruin Bundle
90 Donuts
Contains: Catacombs, 2 Ruins and 20 Braziers
Catacombs earn $200, 22xp/12hrs, other items earn nothing

Eh, to me this is one to pass on.

Item: Mayan Calendar and God
70 Donuts
What Does It Do?:
Nothing.  Mayan God is an NPC.  If you have Mayan Marge there’s a task at the Calendar there for her, otherwise nothing.

Character: Mayan Marge
90 Donuts
Premium character, earns 50% more on all tasks
What Does It Do?:
Playable character, however you’ll need the Mayan Calendar to unlock all of her tasks.
Potential Questline Issues: You’ll need Mayan Homer (who is NOT offered) to complete her questline. This causes a big problem for many of you.

My Opinion On It Now: 
Pass.  Of all Marge’s costumes this is my least favorite.  That coupled with the questline issues, pass.

  1. I’m another player feeling cheated because of the whole Mayan thing. Bought Marge’s skin because I liked it, found out I needed the calendar, bought it too after some cursing and ranting, and now I still can’t use Marge! RIP, 160 Donuts! And I’m a freemium player! So angry.

  2. Save your Donuts / Bonuts!
    EA isn’t offering anything special … 😮

    This purchase has ticked me off the most EA!!!! I feel burned and am passing on a lot of purchases now. I bought Marge because I liked her costume. Looked at her tasks & was miffed the calendar was required for the visual task. Went ahead & bought the calendar even though I didn’t want it, then found out even with the calendar it still required a quest. Why offer Mayan Marge & NOT offer Homer, who is required??? EA blew it on this one!!!

  4. I was waiting for the mayan stuff for a long time. 300 donuts for the bundle was too much last time. Unfortunately Mayan Homer isn’t purchasable but I bought Mayan Marge and the calendar very soon and before this post was live… Now I’am very annoyed that I can’t start the questline and especially that I cannot send her to the visual tasks.

    I can see ppl jumping on the Mayan Calendar+God deal without knowing the item has no payout bonus and the character is npc.

  6. I’m very pleased to have the Mayan God in my game. Yes I know he does nothing but I love npcs and he IS the original npc from waaaay back when 🙂

  7. Grabbed the pagan bonfire. I like rebates!!!

  8. I was getting sick of Marge’s other two premium costumes so I bought the Mayan Marge one. Little did I know that I couldn’t use it because I don’t have Mayan Homer. EA, you owe me donuts for this.

    • Josephine Kick@$$

      I completely agree, I want my donuts back for Mayan Marge & the Mayan Calendar! Or they should give everyone who bought them Mayan Homer for free!!! Bad bad move EA!!!

      • I’d kind of been waiting to get these Mayan skins since I couldn’t afford them initially. I was wondering what the heck was going on when I couldn’t access all Marge’s tasks, so thanks for this info. Seems like they should at least offer Homer’s skin now. 🙄

  9. It would seem to me releasing the Mayan Homer, Marge, and the God together would be a no brainer. It would be even better if they had a bundle with all 3 of them together. At any rate I am going to wait until I can get all 3 at the same time preferably at some kind of discount.

    • They did have a bundle with them all together the first time Mayan Marge was out. Don’t know why they decided to release everything separately

  10. I know it’s a bit of a waste, but I’ve been wanting the Mayan God for a long time. I’m a bit of a THOH completionist, so I just did some KEM farming to pay for him 🙂

    I would get Mayan Marge…knowing she too isn’t really worth it…but without Mayan Homer, she’s a hard pass.

  11. If you have Crazy Iguana Lady, some of her non-visual tasks shift to the Calendar when you buy it.

  12. I already had Mayem Homer and the Mayem God, so buying Mayan Marge was the rifght decision for me.
    As long EA doesn’t deliver Mayan Homer, buying the god and Marge is not advisable!

  13. Too bad that the Mayan God is an NPC. I missed the Mayan event. Thanks for the info. Would have been a waste at 70 Doh’nuts

  14. I picked up the pagan bonfire thinking it was a bundle. Nope. Oh well it feeds EA.

  15. Having one half of a pair of premium characters only is insane, especially if you need both for the questline.
