Greetings from Canada,
(This post is sponsored by “We The North!”)
Nearly two weeks ago, a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update)
And with it came a whole new giant area of land in Springfield Heights. But how do you obtain the land? We discussed the basics last week in Part 1. Let’s explore this new land a little more.
More details below the fold…
New Land Map:
As you can see, the update brought along with it 150 new land tiles. 1 of these land tiles comes free and features the Prospector’s Shack. The other 149 must be purchased for Land Deeds.
23 purchased for 1 Land Deed
24 purchased for 2 Land Deeds
24 purchased for 3 Land Deeds
24 purchased for 4 Land Deeds
24 purchased for 5 Land Deeds
24 purchased for 6 Land Deeds
6 purchased for 7 Land Deeds
How to get Land Deeds:
As discussed in Part 1 last week, you can collect Propector Maps every 8 hours from the Prospector’s Shack. Once you’ve collected three Maps, you can send a character on an 8 hour task to collect to earn a Land Deed.
As mentioned in the dialogue, each land tiles comes with a donut vein that needs to be mined. You’ll see a pick axe over the donut vein.
Once you click on the pick axe, it will mine you a random amount of donuts.
Rushing the new land:
In order to unlock all the new land, you would need 545 Land Deeds. Assuming you tap every 8 hours, it could take around a year and a half to unlock all the new land. So plenty for Tappers to do.
but what if you’re impatient or donut rich? Can you spend your sprinkles to rush it? Sure you can.
You can rush the collection of a Land Map for 6 donuts, which would require 18 donuts to send a character to earn a Land Deed and another 4 donuts to rush that Land Deed. So 22 donuts per Land Deed would require 11,990 donuts. Pretty pricey, and don’t recommend it.
Alternatively though, you can just use donuts to unlock the new land tiles.
Unlike the 22 donuts per Land Deed in the other method, this method only cost 15 donuts per Land Deed. So to unlock all the land tiles with 545 Land Deeds would cost 8,175 donuts. Still pricey, but a 31.8% savings on donuts.
This cost would be slightly offset by the amount of donuts you mine from the donut veins as well.
Again, once you’ve unlocked the new land, it’s not going anywhere. You can unlock the land in a couple hours or a couple years. There is no right or wrong way. Just whatever works best for you.
I know the post is not as detailed as Alissa’s, but that’s the best I can do – some more details on the new land you can prospect in (and after) Northward Bound! Welcome to the North!
