Should I Spend Donuts on the Great Raymondo Bundle?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Fall has arrived and there’s a haze over our Springfield’s, that can only mean one thing….it’s Halloween in our pocket-sized towns! This year EA’s thrown a little magic into the mix, with an Angelica Button theme invading our towns.  An all-new event means loads of new premium items in our stores just tempting us to drop those donuts while they’re hot!

Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab everything in sight 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 Great Raymondo Bundle to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Geriatric Magician to your town…

Character (Wizard): Great Raymondo
Great Raymondo’s House/ Famous Milk Can
Donut Cost: 145 Donuts
Size: 6×9 Building, 1×1 Famous Milk Can
Earns: $500,45xp/24hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10 House, Vanity +100 Famous Milk Can

Leaves stores October 31st

-Great Raymondo has a full set of tasks and comes with a questline (which you can wait to do)
-Can fight in Beast battles.  Clears/fills 1 full mana at a time.
-Great Raymondo’s House is animated when in use, lights turn on and smoke with fairy dust sparkle comes out of chimney
-Fun outdoor/visual tasks

-Not voiced
-On the pricey side, but not outrageous.
-Building income resets every 24hrs, which can be frustrating depending on how often you clear your town

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
Honestly, not a bad combo to get.  Cheaper than Angelica, but he’s not voiced.  However, he will help with Beast battles and comes with a building + decoration. (no bonus % on milk can)  Not a must buy, but not a bad one.  (although you certainly do not need him to complete the event)

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player I can tell you I’ll likely pick him up.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).  Also, this is one of those items that helps with the event.  So if you’re picking it up grab it sooner rather than later, so it can help you the most.  So if you’re planning on picking it up I’d do so by this weekend.

Here’s a look at his tasks…

Great Raymondo’s Permanent Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Watch Daytime Magic Shows 1hr $105, 26xp Raymonodo’s House
Work the Audience 4hrs $260, 70xp Outside/Visual
Perform the Great Milk Can Escape 8hrs $420, 105xp Visual/Milk Can
Expedite Chroes with Magic 12hrs $600, 150xp Raymonodo’s House
Show Off the Peers 24hrs $1,000, 225xp Springfield Retirement Home

  1. Great Raymondo Bundle
    Not a bad price and will definitely help you get through Act 2 quickly
    I’m with everyone else who dislikes the lack of Halloween / Treehouse of Horror in this year’s Event (total let down EA!)

  2. Sorry, ‘give’ them a job

  3. This is the most boring tree house of horror ever! I have four characters that can do anything, so every 4hours or so, I log in and five them a job! That’s it! Awful… Hope Christmas is better!

  4. I think the worst thing is that there is now another sorcerer, but no more monsters left (even though I bought Wiggops and the dragon). I will finish Crawl tonight or latest tomorrow, so what should I do the next 10 days of act 2? Why did they give us three extra sorcerers (Angelica, Martin, Raymondo) who complete the enchanting thing even quicker, when there are not enough beasts to fight?
    Re: crafting. I think it’s bad that we long term players already have the good stuff, while in my B-town the crafting prices are so high, that I will not get everything. It all seems to be very unbalanced, as I could complete act 1 in my B-town without problems (the kids are still working on their second monster).

    P.S.: Does anyone know when we get the other characters in the “THOH XXVIII – Adults” section? I mean the vampire, Burns and Smithers plus that asian guy (act 2, price 7 is obvious ;-))?

    • Later act 2 and 3.

      • Of course 😉
        Ok, one more monster as act 3.1, one adult as final price act 3.7 (I guess the vampire), not sure when the bully-worm (don’t know the correct English name for it) will hit the game – hopefully soon to not run out of monsters.

        Therefore, another guess: Burns and Smithers will be offered as a “Lord Voldemort”-special (another Gil’s Deal?!) and that Asian Guy offered as a Building/Character-Combo for Donuts in Act 3.

        What do you think, Alissa? Am I guessing completely wrong?

        Greetz from Germany!

        • BTW: there is no such site as yours in German. So every German tapper has to visit your site: TSTOaddicts. Thank you so much for all the things I learned here during the last 20 month since I installed the game for the first time 😉

        • After I posted that I thought that it would be much better if that Burns/Smithers-Combo would be the final price of act 3.
          That would give this whole event a story and a reason…

          But unfortunately I doubt. I think this is the most boring event ever, even some of those Episode-Tie-Ins were more interesting (imho).

  5. Between this and Angelica, which one is Better? I’m a freemium player and currently have 237 donuts! Lol trying to use them wisely!!

    • This one is cheaper….

      That’s about the only difference (aside from Character reference). Although Angelica is voiced, and Raymondo isn’t…so i guess that voice accounts for the 5 extra donuts

  6. Im considering this one… when will Wvil Shopkeeper be available?

    • It’ll be in the game BEFORE Raymondo leaves games. So you can wait until it hits to make a decision

      • Was there ever any more discussion on dedicated spoiler posts? I know that was asked for by quite a few people in an open thread a while back so we can plan our donut spending a bit better during events. I already get the rest of my TSTO info here, it’d be nice if I didn’t have to go to any other sites at all to figure out how I want to budget my donuts.

        Just wondering.

  7. I thought I will spend lots of donuts in this event, but so far I didn’t and it looks like I won’t buy anything. This stuff really isn’t for me. I guess I’ll wait for Christmas event…

  8. Most. Boring. THOH TSTO ever. Cannot wait to hit level 939 and nuke it!

  9. I’ve seen a few comments wondering about Pumpkin Houses.
    You got your wish and they’re in store for 30 donuts

  10. This might be the only new thing I don’t get this year.. not super excited about it.

  11. (may have already be stated) I just realized what is missing from the event (other than Halloween), I don’t have people to send to my neighbor’s towns!! I would never have thought I’d miss lawyers/zombies/fans/etc. But I do!! Why did they not include this in this event?!?

  12. Thanks for the post Addicts gang. I held off buying and only would have done so if there was a bonus % with the milk cans. I’ll hold off until all my mystery box shopping is done!

  13. Yep. There’s supposed to be another one closer to Halloween. I was pretty happy to get the House on Scary Hill in the first one. No clue what to expect for the 2nd round. I know it’s not Halloween related, but I’d love for them to bring back the stuff from the Stonecutters event. I started playing after that one.

    • I agree!!!!! i would love to have the stonecutters characters as a collection. EA please bring back the stonecutters as a side mini games for the players who do not have them.

  14. im surprised there’s no Cregg Demon storyline

  15. I remember the episode quite well and I love it.
    And my Lisa kept asking: “Do you buy him, do you buying,…..?”
    I caved in. I can’t refuse Lisa anythinhpg.

  16. The first part of his questline is a task for him and a task for Lisa. I haven’t sent Lisa on her job so I can continue to send Raymondo to earn 50 fairy dust every 4 hours.

    • Just do that 200 times and you will earn some bonuts! 😆

    • DAVIDBO- Lisa earns 50 fairy dust every 4 hrs too. I use GR to capture & enchant because he earns a whole unit & use Lisa to earn the fairy dust. Better option I think. Unless you’ve freed up the beast already. She will also earn 25/1hr on that other QL……💜X

      • Yes, it will work for either as long as you don’t finish both. I do have the Tale of Two Mages Pt. 5 unfinished (Bart’s part) so Lisa can earn 25 an hour, though I’m not logging in that often. I will have all my beasts fully enchanted soon and, since there aren’t many ways to earn event currency, I thought it would help to keep this quest open to earn a bit more.

        • Nice one. I have worked it on my B game so I get 25 extra from Lisa & 50 extra from GR. It really helps. I can’t collect from Lisa that often but I try a couple of hours in the evening after work. I think we’ll be ok getting all the prizes. I wish there was a similar way to get crafting items tho’. It’s loooooooong😴…..Happy tapping…….💜X

  17. I just get him a few moments ago! I always check the posting to check the on suggestion before a purchase. On the other hand usually i get the combo offers of a building with character that is under 150 sprinkles! If a combo price is 150 sprinkles; i have to love it or if Alissa suggests it is a good buy. Anything over 150 i never purchase unless Alissa states “buy buy buy”. Thanks Alissa and everyone else for time you invest with the postings.

  18. Not for my freemium game – picked up Angelica because I liked the character, but definitely didn’t even need her for the event. This is a surprisingly low key party, easy to earn prizes early. Thank goodness for bonuts!

  19. Anxiously waiting for the second Halloween mystery box to appear! Hurry up EA!

    • Travis when you say second Halloween mystery box do you mean like another round with new/previously un-owned items? I ask because I cleared out the one I had and there is nothing else to purchase for me.
