Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Ah the Crafting post….where I give you the how-to and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!
Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay. While the prizes themselves are pretty self-explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”. Crafting requires some self-direction. You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly. Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.
Now I know some of you still have questions so, let’s take a look…
By now everyone should know how crafting works. But for those who don’t, I’ll cover the basics again. But real quick, so I know a chunk of you will scroll down to the item breakdowns anyway…
And now onto the basics….
Crafting is triggered via Plunderer Pete’s via the MAIN questline…The Springfield Job Part 4
Tapping Pete’s will bring you to the crafting menu. You can also access the crafting menu via the event hub menu by clicking the trophy icon and then the crafting icon…
The Crafting Currency is Plunder, it look like this:
This time around, thankfully, there are no levels assigned with Crafting! Instead each group of craftablse is broken out by Act. So each Act will unlock new craftable items for your Springfield. So you’ll no longer have to worry about Leveling up to unlock new items.
And as with previous events, crafting ends when the event is over. There’s no rush to get it done now (well aside from the Heist Bonus and the questline requirements), you can wait until the event is almost over to get everything your tapping heart desires…HOWEVER…you’ll want to craft items with the Heist Bonus in order to max out your Museum rewards. So you’ll need to do some crafting before the event is over.
So now that we’ve gone over those basics, let’s get to why most of you are reading this post…the breakdown of each craftable item.
Let me preface this by saying, for this event most of the craftable items are decorations. Therefore, what to craft and how many is entirely up to you…as to what you think will work best in your Springfield. There are some great decorations that can work in a variety of ways in Springfield (depending on how you’re building your town) but it’s up to you to determine what works best for your town.
Now here’s the breakdown for Act 1 (when Acts 2 and 3 hit we’ll post about the breakdown on those items):
When you connect the Grand Canal buildings with water they’ll make a little ledge along the water (so boats can load and unload)
Size: 6×4 (Water placement only. Can go in river)
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +100
Heist Bonus: 3.45%
What Does it Do: Nothing really, bobs in the water that’s about it.
My Personal Opinion on Craftables…
As always get what you like/what will work for your town. However, keep in mind you need certain craftables to boost your heist bonus. So focus on that, and once that’s maxed out you can go with the order items.
So again…don’t kill yourself trying to get all this stuff. Sometimes less is more. Craft what you have a use for in Springfield….
Hope that helps some of you who have been stressing out over crafting!
And there you have it my friends…the details behind Act 1 of The Springfield Jobs Crafting!
