THOH XVIII – Act II Calendar

I have to admit… I was a bit like Charlie Brown this morning as I opened my game up, knowing that a new act was starting.  Like Charlie at Halloween…I was hoping for a full-size premium chocolate bar, and instead, appear to have received another rock.  One click…and BOOM…we are back to grinding.

I’m not really sure what to tell you, except that this act seems to be as easy as the last act, if you “want it all.”  But, like last act, we are left with the same “meh” and redundant craftables…along with some pretty uninspired “Main Prize Track” prizes.

But then…just as I was typing that last paragraph…I got a message from Alissa, that EA had changed the numbers again…upped them to make them a bit harder. This was AFTER I had spent 2 hours doing the math, and making the new calendars. Yes…EA is currently on my Sh*t list. Not a fan.

I’m not against the Potter-esque event….I’m just still waiting for the magic.

But…here are the numbers…all a couple of hundred higher than the originals that were in the files…just because EA apparently wants to prove “who is in charge” and is being Richard-ish…even though we have established that this update is anything but Hallow-Richardy in its execution.
As always….click the graphics to make them larger.

And again…for the “data only bunch.”

I’ll let you all decide if this is harder or EAsier than the last act. As I finished Act I with days to spare, I am going to guess that this will be fairly easy as well. But, again…when you look at the prizes…grinding starts to feel like grinding, until you get to Greystash. So…grind away. Oh, and…Feel the magic.

    It was mentioned earlier about a monorail donuts non glitch glitch! Can someone elaborate on that? Something about free donuts every tuesday, and I want em! You guys have been so much help already. Thanks.

    • Previously, the Monorail would reset every Tuesday and you could only complete it once per week to earn 5 donuts per week. Now it automatically resets once you complete it, so you can earn 5 donuts many times a week.

  2. I’ve been logging in 3x per day on average the last couple weeks and still a day behind according to the calendar. Thanks a lot grinchy EA buggers! I’m not going to bother wasting donuts on the character either. Not worth it in my opinion. I’m actually thinking it’s about time to tap out from playing this game that used to be so rather fun. Really a bummer!

    • Maybe you need to log in 4 times per day. It takes less than 5 minutes to do the event tasks. I have no premium characters or items in my game D and I received Greystach yesterday.

      • Life and work to keep a roof overhead and food on the table are more important than a game that has become increasingly lazy with what they do but also increasingly more demanding of what they expect from the end user. They act like we aren’t the ones paying their salaries, or just don’t care that they keep shoveling the same manure with a different skin onto our plates. The game was so much better when all the events had different aspects to each other. When was the last time they didn’t feed us some 6 week “event” that was broken up into 3 – 2 week “acts” that did little more than make us grind to finish them, and in return give us tons of useless clutter to “decorate” our towns? Do I even need to get into how stingy they’ve gotten about the neighbor actions? Those yahoos need a complete overhaul in their decision making room, and they either don’t realize it or they don’t care!

        • So going from 15 minutes to 20 minutes is going to take food off your table? If so, you shouldn’t be playing the game. If you get up in the middle of the night, maybe should could take 5 minutes then.

          In truth, if the game upsets you either don’t play or just accept what you can get. Before KEM farming I could get maybe one or two premium items a year. Since you don’t want to be put time in the game, just consider those as premium items for those willing to put the time in and accept the free stuff you can get.

          • Uhm… for the record. There is no “right way” to play the game. Those who farm are cool…those who choose not to are also cool. It isn’t an either or thing. Time is valuable…how you spend it us up to you.

  3. I don’t know where to ask these questionns, please forgive me that I ask them here:
    1) Is it possible to use the monorail to our advantage in this event? I think I heard about a possibility to use it for bonuts, but don’t know how.
    2) I would really love to have the possibility to buy the Britannia Casino that was part of a Vegas themed event. I was unable to get it then and would love to have an opportunity to buy it. Is there some kind of shop where I can buy it?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,

    • 1) Previously you could only complete the Monorail tasks for 5 donuts once per week. For the past month, they have eliminated that. So if you keep sending your characters off to the Monorail, you can continuously receive an influx of those 5 donuts each time you turn in 25,000 blue prints.
      2) Unfortunately the Britannia Casino is not available all the time. You’ll have to wait and hope it returns for sale or in a Mystery Box.

  7. I don’t find an article about craftables, I would like to have a close up look at one of the craftables, is there a link to such an article/thread?

    Now that two of my beasts are tamed, what should I do? When I tap them it says something about freeing them.

    My wizards could run out of beasts, it seems…

    What would you recommend to do in order to gain as much as possible?

    Please help.

  8. I am now puzzled….I have fully enchanted 3 beasts and now can send 3 beasr out every 4 hrs and gain 100 each = 3x100x4 =1200 per day , wizards are now doing nothing to gain more event currency capture creatures, so wizards do nothing until event 3 now?

      A new monster will be realeased next Tuesday. The one with the three heads. The date is shown on its screen in the event log.
      The wizards will be idling until then.

  9. TSTO addicts …does anyone knows if, the goblin gold, will augment substantially before the end of the event. Because I am trying to figure out if I need to buy a beast and/or a wizard to get the craftables. If so, I need to do it sooner than later. Or if I should keep my donuts to buy items that I can’t craft. I don’t have enough info to do the math myself.

    • 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.

  11. This event is uninspiring, not particularly fun to play, and has mostly uninteresting prizes. I used to enjoy the little bit of challenge that was built into some events (Tap Ball, Superhero battles, or “figure-out-the-puzzle”), but this is one time I’m glad that I don’t have to spend more than a few seconds to complete my actions every four hours. If I had to spend a few minutes to do each cycle 4-5 times a day I would be very annoyed, considering what I’m getting out of the event….

    Patric, have you been sipping the delightful 99W/ Willamette Valley Wine?
    Two hours to do the “math” – 22700/14 days = 1,621 (and change) per day.

    Heyho, just a quick question: sending four wizards onto Crawl would lead to catching him after 8 rounds since he has 15 mana and two wizards kill 2 each. Does that mean that I cannot complete the quest to catch him 15 times when I always send 4, and what would that mean for the way forward?
    Also, I’d really see a possibility to sell or at least destroy some items since I have so many decorations from the first two monsters (I play the free version only), and they keep on repeating… I don’t really want to be stuck with them…
    Have fun tapping all of you, greetings from Germany.

        Hey Patric, thanks, but I think there’s a misunderstanding: I don’t mean the daily challenge but the “Rock and Troll – Part 1” quest line. My team of four wizards is on its 5th round to catch Crawl, so just about half of the 15 dark mana is left, and the quest counter is on 7 out of 15 (if all chars really counted, I would have completed the quest after four rounds). So 4 more rounds of four wizards including the running one, then Crawl will be caught. After that, I have to load him with good mana, so I will only have had caught him 11 out of 15 times with no possibilities to catch him again.
        What happens then?

        • The x15 is for each Mana, not how many times you send someone. There are 15 mana to clear, then 15 mana to fill before you either capture/enchant…so that counter changes with each mana cleared.

          How’d you get four wizards? Did you have to put up donuts? I’m confused because it seems I can only have an option for three at a time, I.e. Lisa, Bart and milhouse. I tried to change marge’s outfit to her old wizard costume thinking maybe I’d get a prompt to be able to use her in battle as well, but to no avail. How are you guys battling these dudes so easily and how’d you get the characters to do so?

            Hey PennsylvaniaTapper, the unicorn from the last prize of Act 1 is also a wizard. So if you did not get it and just work with 3 wizards, this is still fine. I did not spend any donuts and do not have premium figures, and I still finished Act 1 three days ahead of time. I just got the Crystal Ball from Act 2, so absolutely no donut spending needed if you just log in 3-4 times a day. The next monster will be made available next Tuesday, so just make sure that you 3-4 wizards are working on the monsters and that you keep sending the monsters onto their missions once the wizards are done with them. Does that help?

            I hope I’m replying in the right spot lol. Thank you! When did you get greystache? I only have an option to buy his land and character with donuts. Or perhaps not there yet. Also thank you to whomever commented on the mana bubbles for capture and enchanter. I was confused as to why my capture rate wasn’t moving in the story line credit space but I was still emptying mana bubbles. I don’t know why I’m so behind you guys because I’ve been on top of this since it came out. I wait all year for THOH events, have an entire section of my sprinGfield in dedication. Are you guys rotating your wizards between kearneymon, crawl and lewd? Kearneymon is listed with the storyline so to get the prizes I assumed he was the one to beat. I only have my act two land token lol

            Hey again, Greystache will be the price of Act 2. I don’t have him yet, but I have the unicorn from Act 1 which is a wizard, so it gets you a team of four. My guess is that you did not receive the unicorn in Act 1, so you will to work with 3 wizards.
            My advice on the wizards job would be: each monster needs to be cleared of its 15 evil mana and has 15 good mana to be filled up. Each wizard is doing half a mana per round, so sending two wizards will take care of 1 mana point. Once the 15 bad mana has cleared and the 15 good manas are built up, the monsters are free, but you need to tap onto them to send them on a four hour quest that gives you 100 points. So choose one of the monsters and set it free by using all the wizards you have every four hours. With three wizards, you always get 150 points. When the monster is set free, send it to do its quest every 4 hours for 100 points AND send the wizards onto the next monster for 3x 50 = 150 points.
            So concentrate on one monster after the other, otherwise you will be stuck with the 3x 50 = 150 points the wizards bring in alone. You need freed monsters to roam around on their own for 300 points each every four hours, otherwise you’ll get nowhere.
            Good luck!

        • Hi Harry, even if you send 4 people, it really still only counts as 1 capture. For example even if you send Bart, Milhouse the unicorn and Lisa all at once, it won’t be 4 captures it will only be 1, it’s like they’re working as a team. But you earn more points so it is better to send all of them together. When the box comes up where you choose who to send to capture Crawl, next to Crawls name it will show you the circles filling in after you catch him once all 15 circles are completely filled in, you have caught him. I hope this helps. And If it helps you feel better, I was confused at first too. 🐱🌟🌸
