Halloween Is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Update 8:50p ET: Looks like this is fixed now…at least the not being able to progress.  New update downloads and you’ll get Wizard Lisa and Bart, and that will allow you to complete the beast task…

I’m now working on updating this post, since I can now move through. So keep checking back, I’ll be updating more info below…

Update: So apparently I’ve missed a few bugs…I can also tell you EA sent out a patch to Android (or something), as I just got a massive in-game download.  BUT now I have the crazy zoomed out bug that was going around for other devices (I have a Galazy S8).  So not quite sure what’s going on….

Some are reporting problems with iOS as well.  It’s not loading.  However, i currently have no issues on iOS.

So yes, apparently the bug is still there…for both iOS AND Android.  It gets stuck here:

And you can’t progress.  For those who don’t already know, yes it’s widespread. And yes they’re working on a patch.

Also there’s a glitch with the Magic Scratch R…don’t buy it right now.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Halloween is currently LIVE on Android, iOS and Kindle!  I’m on my way out the door to pick up the Tiny Addict, but i’ll update this post more when I get home.

For now know that Lisa needs to be free for a 6s task.  You’ll then need to place the Chamers Market (free) and complete 6s tasks for Springfielders and Homer. Then ANOTHER 6s task for Homer, and another for Lisa.  You’ll then have to build the Magic Academy (also free) and complete ANOTHER 6s task for Homer. And then you’ll FINALLY launch the event….

I’ll be back with way more once I get home and situated.  For now, have fun guys! More info below the fold…

Alright…it’s late.  Playoff baseball is on.  So let’s break this down quickly…

More detailed individual posts will be coming soon….

Yes, this is 3 acts.  Act 1 ends/Act 2 starts October 17th.  

Event ends November 14…standard 6 weeks.

First up the freebie buildings…

Each Building Will Unlock for you via the Main Questline.  So just keep playing the questline and they’ll unlock…

Charmer’s Market- 10×10, As you progress through the questline crafting will unlock.  Charmer’s Market is the hub for crafting

Magic Academy– 7×11, when tapped it’ll take you to the prize track hub

Karneymon’s Alley– 4×4 (Comes with Karneymon).  First Beast you’ll unlock

 Magic Tower– 2×2, this will act as the “clear all” for the goblins.  Resets every 4hrs, tap on it and you’ll clear all Goblins in Springfield. (again, unlocks with the questline)


Act 1 Currency 

Wands    


Act 1 Prizes

Lewd’s Bar– 400

Free Land– 1.200 

Royal My Pod– 2,500 

Fairy Fields– 4,200 

500 Goblin Gold– 5,900 

Music Automation– 7,600 

Unicorn WIzard– 10,200 


Free Costumes…

After today’s secondary download you’ll now unlock instantly…

Wizard Lisa

Wizard Bart

Magic Milhouse

You’ll need these costumes to fight beasts.


Crafting

Crafting currency is Goblin Gold

Also known as Goblin boogers….

You can earn the “gold” by tapping Goblins, daily challenges, etc.

Crafting is unlocked via the MAIN questline…Angelica Button and the Mystical Beasts Pt. 6

I’m not going to breakdown all of the craftables here, i will do (as usual) a crafting rundown post.  Most of the items are returning, and several you cannot get again if you already have 1 in Springfield.

And once again, you’ll need to level up to unlock more craftables.


Goblins/Trolls

These are the tappables in Springfield tap them and they drop 2  and 2 

They spawn at a rate of 1/10 minutes. Max of 40 in Springfield.  There is no bank on these.


Neighbor Actions

Neighbor Actions unlock with Angelica Button and the Mystical Beasts Pt.7.

From what I see you can only tap Goblins/Trolls in neighbor’s towns and that’s it.  They’ll drop 1  and 1


Fighting Beasts

This gets a bit more complicated than I’d like to get into for the rundown post.  We will have a FULL detailed post up on this soon.

But it’s similar to the previous battles, but a little more thought to it.  You have to clear the “mana” at the top…and each character clears so much mana.

Safi’s already working on some analysis for this, so you know it’ll be detailed and full of stats. 🙂

  1. I purchased Treestache last night and since then, I am unable to capture him or even get into the choses in the box at the top right. The only way I can craft anything is if I tap the store/marketplace and even then I cannot get into the monster portion. Is anyone having the same issue? Is there a fix for it?

  2. Am I the only one who thinks EA seriously dropped the ball on this year’s event Halloween 2017!?

    I mean honestly, in the years I’ve been playing I’ve never seen clear blue water during Halloween. It’s always been a nice spooky murky green colour with a darker ominious tone. This isn’t my issue though, my biggest gripe is the craftable prizes this year which out of 21 prizes 7 are new. Leaving the other 14 from last year and of those 14 prizes from last Halloween 6 of them can’t be crafted because they’re a single craftable item meaning if you played last year you get nothing more to show your dedication to TSTO. Soooooo in other words the not so valued long time customers who have been playing for YEARS get the big ole shaftzilla and nothing to show except walls, bats, bramble bushes, moth infested lamps and with for it MORE GATES AND WALLS FROM LAST YEAR!!!! An don’t get me started on the act two prizes an hourglass and a crystal ball… this is all junk that will once again sit in most inventories right after this event or RIGHT after they were awarded and it’s sad to say because I’m sure hard work went into creating these items.

    Perhaps said customers who feel less and less valued with each passing event because your wonderful supportive customers purchased doughnuts to fund this wonderful little game EA put together to unlock premium characters to possibly use in future events don’t get to use them at all in any future events but no now… they… just… exist. However if you have purchased premium characters for this game EA now lately expects that you’ll purchase skins to use those characters in an event but the amount for a skin is sold at an alarming rate I’m looking a you Otto in Homerpollooza 120 doughnuts for a skin and a “ROCK” sign and that was 120 on top of the 120 for Otto and the broke down bus….. honestly this was one ridiculously priced and I hope next to no one bought it. A better word comes to mind about these prices and it’s greed. It’s very greedy expecting people to fork out hundreds and hundreds of their or their parents hard earned money to fund a virtual Springfield. All I’m saying is if EA priced characters with customers in mind a more affordable price of 80 to even 100 doughnuts would be an affordable price point then maybe they would sell more units…. Just a thought. Sorry for the long rant but I’ve just about reached my breaking point with EA.

  5. How is everybody getting on with buying stuff from the charmers market?

    My plan it so buy one of everything before looping back and getting extras of thinks like walls etc…
    I have only got as far as he dormitory, it still seems like there is a load left to buy and I’m starting to wonder if I’m on track to be able to get everything in time.

    I did notice that a couple of my friends towns had expensive things like the bell tower quite early on, I play pretty regular so am hoping I’m not missing something or slacking too much!

    • Unlike most events where event currency has been hard to come by each Act for the lay tapper, yet everyone can generate enough crafting currency for all three Act prizes before the first Act is even over; this event flipped the script. Event currency has been a breeze for nearly everyone. Yet even for the hardcore q4h tapper, crafting currency has been a challenge. While none of us know what EA will do, historically in similar situations, EA has corrected it’s payouts. I wouldn’t be surprised if Act 3 has more Goblin Gold payouts or they add Goblin Gold to the Daily Challenge rewards. But I’m not sure. Only EA knows if they will do that.

  6. Is anyone else having an issue where Wizard Martin doesn’t show up at all? When I battle/enchant the beasts it only shows Lisa, Bart, and Milhouse but never Martin?

  7. It is the same “game” we get for every update! I cant believe that out of all of the Halloween characters I have all of them and they have no tasks. Same with buildings!

  8. This Halloween update just feels lame and boring to me. Wish the old Halloween building still gave even currency like they use to if the kids do nothing after the enchant why not have trick or treat task to earn event currency ?
