Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Yesterday morning the Treehouse of Horror XXIX teaser hit our games! Fortune Tellers and Tents arrived to maybe give us a sneak peek at what the next event will bring to TSTO. Of course, by now, we all know that new content means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.
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 the Fortune Teller to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this predictor of the future to your town…
Character: Fortune Teller
Donut Cost: 90 Donuts
Leaves stores October 3rd
-Purchasing her will trigger the rest of the teaser questline
-She comes with her own secondary questline
-Pricey for a stand-alone, one-off character
A bunch of you are asking if she’ll help with the Halloween event. Honestly, I have no idea. No one knows that except EA. However, as we’ve seen with recent teasers, usually the teaser character has nothing to do with/no impact on the event itself. So if I were betting money on it I’d bet that she will NOT help with the event. But again, no one really knows except EA…
Premium or Freemium:
I’d pass on her. Not worth 90 donuts in my opinion. The questline isn’t life altering (plus I posted the dialogue this morning) and it’s just not worth the purchase. Save your donuts for the actual Halloween event next week.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I’m passing. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
Here’s a look at her tasks…
