Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Halloween is back in Springfield! Yes, the water is murky, the screen is slightly darker, monsters and minions are roaming our towns…is there anything better than Halloween in our pocket-sized towns? Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.
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 the Cursed Ship and Nosferatu to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Vampire Combo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Cursed Ship
Donut Cost: 165 Donuts
Earns: 4.5% bonus on all cash and XP. Nosferatu also has a premium task to earn currency and pickaxes at the Holy Forge (this is the BEST task to send him on, as it’s is only one that earns Pickaxes)
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200
Can Be Placed: Ocean Only
Leaves stores November 14th
-Comes with a questline
-Will help earn more prize track event currency
-Has a premium task to earn Pickaxes at Holy Forge (and event currency). One of the few characters this event that will
-Good bonus % for donuts spent, considering it comes with a character as well
-Ship is always animated
-Pricey for a one-off character
-His item is another ship for Springfield, I feel like we have a million ships in Springfield. Ocean’s getting crowded.
I like this pickup from a practical standpoint. (not so much for the character, he’s pretty u-g-l-y..and I really don’t need another darn ship) It’s a little pricey but still an ok price (15 donuts higher than the “new norm” at 150 donuts) and the ship offers a pretty good bonus. Plus Nosferatu will earn at a premium rate at the Holy Forge and that’s not nothing. Very few characters for this event will earn currency at the Holy Forge, and out of that even fewer will earn at a premium rate. So premium players, I think this is a good pickup.
For all of the reasons stated in the premium section, I think this is a good pickup for Freemium players too. However, donuts are usually more of a premium for Freemium players. So Freemium players should examine the character itself and determine if it’s someone you want in Springfield. If so pick him up, otherwise pass. BUT you DO NOT need him to successfully complete this event. I’m well ahead of the calendar and have not purchased him yet.
What do you care what I think in the Final Thought section? You’re going to buy it anyway… 😉
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’ll likely pick this one up. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now). Also, since this is an item that helps with the event, it’s better to pick this up sooner rather than later if you plan to grab it. This way you maximize the event currency earning throughout the entire event.
Here’s a look at his tasks…
