Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
A new element added to our games for Bart Royale is a Defensive Bonus. Simply explained, it’s an extra bonus of Prize Track currency awarded at any of the bases (playscape/junk/ruffian) when you place items (that award a Defensive Bonus) in the “zone” around the base.
So basically, it’s a simple way to earn even more prize track currency.
Let’s take a look at how items from Act 3 impact the Defensive Bonus….
I’ve already broken down the basics in the Defensive Bonus Act 1 Guide. You can find that post here if you need more help on the “how to”…and I also covered the Act 2 additions in this post. So for this post we’re just going to talk about the NEW items for Act 3
So What Items Award a Defensive Bonus?
The NEW items for Act 3 that award a Defensive Bonus are….
As a reminder, the list from Acts 1 and 2, items are still available…
And that’s it for Act 3
So What’s the Best Item to Place?
You have to look at the currency to bonus % ratio. For Act 1 it was Trenches and Playscape Lookout (they had the best ratio of the freemium items. (.005% for 1 spent)), however, it changed for Act 2. For Act 2 your two best items were the Junk Barrier and Junk Lookout, with a ratio of .0067% for 1 spent. This has once again changed for Act 3. Now your best item is the Ruffian Barrier with a ration of .01% for 1.
What’s the Max Defensive Bonus For Act 3?
Still 20%. Once your Defensive Bonus is 20% around the Ruffian Base, Playscape or Junk Base you can’t increase it. (you can max out to 20 on all…)
So What’s a Good Strategy? Which Base Should I Play? Which Base Should I Max Out?
There’s no perfect strategy. The same characters are required for each base, so it’s not like you’ll earn extra. My advice is to make sure the base you’re sending everyone to is maxed out. You’ll need to send characters to all the bases for the questline so move bases around in order to max that out so when completing the questline you get the most benefit.
Just make sure your base is maxed out so you earn the MOST event currency you can.
And no you can’t share items between two bases. Even if the bases overlap, the bonus % won’t count for both bases.
And that’s it my friends! The simple breakdown for the Defensive Bonus during Act 3.
