Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Looks like Gil’s back in Springfield. He returned to Springfield late last week, naturally with another ‘deal” for us. What’s the latest gimmick he’s peddling? Well this time around he’s finally done it, he’s finally made a deal for the Devil.
So let’s break down the details of this latest offer and determine if you should spend your donuts to bring this demon to Springfield….
So when you first get into Springfield you’ll see Gil waving his arms around…just begging you to tap on him…
If you tap on him you’ll see…
Gil: You’ll never guess my luck! I was sleeping in a boxcar when the train derailed. Next thing I know, I’m down in Hell. Well, sir, turns out he was looking for an advance man to help market his Devilish transactions on Earth. So what do you say? Buy my devil and he’ll make you a Hell of a good deal.
At which point you’ll see his latest gimmick…
If you refuse…
Gil: You couldn’t do me this solid? You’re literally sending me to Hell.
If you accept…
Gil: Thanks, pal, you made the right choice! Listen, if the Devil offers you a deal…
Take it! Best decision I ever made.
Now real quick because…if you refuse the offer will go back in the store. It will be there…
This Deal Ends October 18th
(interesting to note, even though we get the advanced information from EA there can still be errors with it. Point…they told us Gil was coming on the 19th…the day AFTER he leaves. 🤷♀️ Go figure.)
And now for the part, you’ve all been waiting for…the Should I Buy…
Character: The Devil
Donut Cost: 199 Donuts
Earns: $300, 30xp/12hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +400
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|dirt|Krustyland road
This Deal Ends October 18th
-Comes with a questline
-Amusing outdoor tasks
-Earns Pickaxes at Holy Forge at a premium rate (one of the few Premium characters that will)
-Too expensive for this particular character/building combo
Pro or Con Depending on Who You Are/How You Play:
-Visual tasks are 4 and 12hrs
-It’s the Devil.
Personally I don’t think this is worth 199 donuts, but it does help with the event and is a fairly standard premium combo (despite the price tag). So if you’re a premium player and really like this you mine as well pick it up.
Pass. Not worth 199 donuts if you’re a freemium player (or even a casual farmer)
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 don’t think I’ll be taking this deal. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
Remember, there’s a good chance this may come back in a future Mystery Box. Look at the Burns Dragon from last year. That was 199 donuts last Halloween and now it’s in the Magical Mystery Box for 45 donuts. So you’re rolling the dice either way with this one. If you buy it there’s a good chance it’ll come back at a much lower price and you’ll be mad about it, if you don’t buy it and want it there’s always a chance it may not come back. So the gamble is up to you to take…
Devil’s Permanent Tasks:
|Play the Violin||1hr||$105, 26xp||Various Bars in Springfield|
|Enjoy a Breath of Fresh Air||4hrs||$260, 70xp*||Outside/Visual|
|Go Back to Hell||8hrs||$420, 105xp||Hellscape|
|Collect Souls||12hrs||$600, 150xp*||Outside/Visual|
|Invent New Forms of Torture||24hrs||$1000, 225xp||Hellscape|
During the event his 4 and 12 hour tasks will pay out event currency. After the event they’ll revert back to in-game cash.
And because this is the complete details on the Gil Deal, here’s the Turbo Tappin’ Version of his questline…
