Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The kids of Springfield are mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore! Time for a Battle Royale of epic proportions…kids vs adults. The soul of Springfield is on the line! So grab those sprinkles because the store is stocked with battle inspired items to fill your Springfield with!
As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 Mountain Man and the Outlands Sign to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this rustic duo…
Character: Mountain Man
Building/Decoration: Outland Sign
Donut Cost: 145 Donuts
Earns:4% bonus on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200
Other Info: Can be placed on the grass|beach|dirt
Leaves stores February 15th
-Comes with a questline
-Will Help earn event prize currency (his questline AND task to Assault/Fortify the bases)
-Has two tasks at the Outlands sign (although it’s not animated)
-Amusing outdoor tasks
-Not voiced (Several of you are telling me he’s voiced. I play with the sound off so rely on the files to indicate when someone is voiced. I didn’t see a voice file for Mountain Man, but I’ll trust you guys 🙂 )
-A bit pricey for a one-off character (although cheaper than some others), but this has become the normal price range for combos these days…
-Outlands sign is not animated when tapped or in use.
-Outlands sign is HUGE, very large footprint to fit in Springfield
A fun pick up. He is a one-off character, but his tasks are amusing and he’ll help with the event. Not a bad buy if you want him.
I’d pass on this one. The Outlands Sign is huge, it’s pricey for a one-off & the bonus % is nice..but not great. (buy two police cars for way less and the same bonus %)
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’ll be picking 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 will help you earn more currency…so the earlier you pick it up the more beneficial it is to you. So try to make your final decision before this weekend…so that it’ll help you the most.
Here’s a look at his tasks…

|Visit the Neighbors||1hr||$105, 26xp||Cletus’ Farm|
