THOH XXVIII Prize Guide: Unlocking Lord Montymort

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, we’ve reached the end of the marathon and we can see the finish line in sight!  The 2017 THOH/Magical Event ends tomorrow…Tuesday Nov. 14th…and I’m sure most of you (no matter your opinion of the event) are ready to see it go!  Bring on what’s next!

But before we talk about what’s up ahead, let’s finish what’s in front of us first.  Let’s quickly breakdown the tasks and questline for Lord Montymort…likely the final prize many of you are unlocking today (or did so this past weeked)…or in some cases the last prize many of you are debating on spending donuts to finish off before the event ends.

So away we go….

First up, the one and only Super Safi did a great job breaking down the final battle for Springfield, which is how you unlock Lord Montymort.  So if at this point you’re still confused, check it out here.

So once you’ve completed the battle for Springfield and knocked out Lord Montymort, he’ll become a playable FULL character for your Springfield. (this is NOT a skin for Mr. Burns…) And you’ll see his character unlock message:

And for many of you, he will complete the Treehouse of Horror XXVIII Adults Character collection….

Once in your Springfield (and you complete the questline) he does come with his own side questline.  Here’s a look at it now:

The Sorcerer’s Life Sentence Pt. 1
Montymort starts

Make Lord Montymort Shield From Haters- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Make Homer Make Fun of Montymort- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp

The Sorcerer’s Life Sentence Pt. 2

Make Lord Montymort Serve Life Sentence- 24hrs, Earns $600, 150xp

The Sorcerer’s Life Sentence Pt. 3

Make Lord Montymort Clean Mystical Beast Lairs- 4hrs, Earns 50 45xp

And finally Here’s a look at his tasks…

Lord Montymort’s Permanent Tasks:


Task Length  Earns Location
Suck Plant Worker’s Essence 1hr $70, 17xp Power Plant
Shield from Haters 4hrs $175, 45xp Outside/Visual
Act Big and Tough 8hrs $275, 45xp Outside/Visual
Consider Retirement 12hrs $420, 100xp Springfield Retirement Home
Serve Life Sentence 24hrs $600, 150xp Springfield Penitentiary

And that’s it my friends, the details/questline for Lord Montymort!

Now, I know some of you are wondering if it’s worth spending donuts to finish off the battle to unlock him in your Springfield.  My standard answer is always, depends on how close you are to getting him.  I think if it costs you <30 donuts it’s certainly worth it, but anything greater than 30 donuts doesn’t feel worth it in my book.  It’s just a standard character, not premium…and he’s not exactly the most amazing character that ever arrived in Springfield.  Which adds to the not worth more than 30 donuts debate.

But that’s my own 2 cents.  The final decision is, obviously, up to you.

Oh and another note about extra time to get Montymort.  No one knows what will happen the the event timer runs out in a few hours.  You  many get extra time, you may not.  If you’re willing to take that risk, great.  But if you really want him, don’t bank on getting extra time.  Figure the event ends when the timer runs out.

What are your thoughts on Lord Montymort?  Have you unlocked him yet?  Will you before the event is over?  Plan on spending donuts? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Defeated Lord MontyMort 6 or 7 times over, but stayed at 2/3 as others have reported too. Fortunately, really didn’t care much about getting him. Is it just me or do the prizes for the 3rd act suck in almost every event?


  2. I’ve defeated Montymort 5 times now and I’m still on 2/3 …
    Tried contacting EA but they’re of no help. Really don’t want to be forced to pay donuts to get him.


  3. I spent doughnuts to unlock him. Ended up hurrying pretty much all the beast battles and I think one or two of the normal battle part for the 3/3 fight. It’s still letting me play the event as of now though, so I really wouldn’t have had to do that. Now I’m totally done with the event questline, but it never offered me the chance for bonuts. Just finishing up with crafting for now and then I’ll upgrade for the Thanksgiving event.


  4. Just barely managed to get Lord Montymort, quite some time after the event had ended and an hour before the update.. Did spent 20 of my freemium donuts but that’s allright. Close call!


  5. I ended up spending about 25 donuts on him, but I’m not sure I would have if I’d realized he’s not premium. Oh well, at least it was something new…


    • I spent about 30 on him myself.. don’t feel bad… at least something new like you said, and we got something after enduring this event!


  6. Lord Montymort
    Amusing Character 👍
    Glad it’s not a Character Skin …. not worth the loooong battle task (not worth Donuts / Bonuts)

    The FAIL this year was we had no Treehouse of Horror in the Event (that, and old Tappers couldn’t Craft everything) …. but I crafted what I wanted and Kem Farmed and Monorail Tasked (buhbuhbuh-Bonuts galore!) 😋

    Halloween this year was 👎
    Don’t do it again EA!


  7. So what happens to the fight arena? At least with the superhero update the arena became a tableau, although game experience still worthless. I would like to keep using the event things like the poker and dice games from the Vegas event. Well, at least the stages from the previous music event still allows character assignments.


  8. I don’t normally post “i’m pissed” rants, but &*^#$&*^%$#&*%*&^#
    I had one more time finishing the Beat Lord M bit to get him and it apparently updated before I got in to click done and get him. One of the few new things to get on this crummy event and i didn’t.. after all that inane clicking..
    I thought, incorrectly it seems, it finished after tonight.
    crap rabble rabble rabble rabble
    Vent fume


  9. Defeating Lord Montymort didn‘t count 2 times for me, spent 36 donuts and still 2/3 😦
    Reported it to EA, so still hoping I‘ll get him.
    Got everything else…


  10. Spent wayyy too many donuts on him, but Ahh Well, I farmed the donuts so there is no real Harm done I guess. This event wasn’t fun.


  11. I ran out of risk tolerance and splurged the 2 donuts to rush the final Montymort battle, so I just barely got him! It’s been years since I’ve been this close to not completing everything. I am a freemium player, but I log in way more than every 4 hours, so I’m usually able to complete events with lots of time to spare. I focused on monorail building for most of the event to capitalize on the donuts, but shifted focus the final few days of the event to having Lisa, Milhouse and Bart fighting the bad guys instead of helping on the monorail. Thanks for what you do. By seeing on here that the Thanksgiving mini-event is available, I worried that a forced update may be coming soon, and I didn’t want to miss out on a full character for just a few donuts. Thanks!


  12. I am on borrowed time but still trying to finish this one. It is strange that I am so far behind (six beast battles to go) since I got Dracula a few days ago.

    I fought for this one and woke up in the middle of the night more than once to do the Montymort grind. Not much fun.. I spent four donuts for a few rounds near the end on my last rounds where the monsters were fighting to earn him him as a freemium player in time. I got him though! He can keep Slithers company. 🙂 Now I am scrambling to get the “Walking Kwik-E-Mart before it goes out of my store. I’m at forty donuts now of the fifty-five needed. The time ran out but it is still in my store. I want the four hour task I can send tons of My Springfielders on from that premium store. I am laid up after a hernia surgery and have some time to re-arrange my new Halloween stuff I earned and make my farm area improved from the last event. I am making a cool, futuristic looking area for my Kwik-E-Mart farm to fit the twenty-five I buy most every four hours to earn donuts too


  14. Anyone else experiencing major slowdowns with their game as of the last day or so? My game isn’t crashing but it’s slowed down so much it’s unplayable. Started happening this morning. Was playing smoothly and flawlessly before today. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and it started off fine, then within a few minutes slowed to a crawl again. Trying to figure out if its an issue with the game or my device (or a mixture of both). I have an Asus zenpad running Android 7. If it’s just me, then I’ll go ahead and fret more about it. If it’s not just me, I’ll just wait until the game updates hopefully later today.

      Mine has been chugging more the last few days and acting more sluggish especially when I am assigning characters tasks
