Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Banana Leaf Windmill, Tuts ‘n’ Tots Elementary or Taskmaster Willie (& Pyramid)?

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 loads of returning content! Lots of items to drop those sprinkles on…

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 Returning Banana Leaf Windmill, Tuts ‘n’ Tots Elementary or Taskmaster Willie (& Pyramid)to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Leaves stores November 9th

Item: Banana Leaf Windmill

 Even at 25 donuts, pass.

Leaves stores November 13th

Item: Taskmaster Willie and Pyramid
Cost: 90 Donuts
Previous Post: Details
Earns: $200, 20xp/12hr
What Does It Do: Costume for Willie
My Opinion On It Now:
Toss up.  I don’t think it’s worth it, but some of you like to collect the costumes so here’s your chance.  And at 90 donuts it’s overpriced, but better priced than Count Burns was.

  1. I was hoping EA would offer the pharoah God npc during the third act, but alas they did not, and I already have everything else they brought back. I will just have to save my sprinkles… Mmmm sprinkles.

  2. I guess Noobs have an opportunity to utilize the Mystery Boxes (which seem to offer a better deal, in my opinion) OR spend more sprinkles on what (my opinion) should’ve been in a Mystery Box …. after all, these were only prior Event Prizes. 🤷🏼‍♂️

  3. Huh, maybe I’ve been playing for too long. I’ve been questioning why I don’t see many of the premium items pop up in the store like in other events and then I realized that I’ve either received them as a freemium item or bought them at some point. I guess the only thing to do now is to find a swing to think on as I keep tapping away.

  4. All freebies for old users.

  5. Thanks for this post, Alissa. I had the privilege (?) to win these last year, and I’m sure I wouldn’t spend donuts on them.

    Just noticed but what is with the haunted crossroads? Says unlocks during act 2 level 4 but it never unlocked for me. I’ve got everything now and was looking to see what I wanted to craft more of and seen that I was never able to craft it.

  7. Is Taskmaster Willie still freemium ?
