Blue Haired Lawyer: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. Who do you find more attractive, Tom Cruise or Mel Gibson? Judge Snyder: What is the point of all this? Blue Haired Lawyer: Your Honor, I’m so confident of Marge Simpson’s guilt, that I can waste the court’s time rating the superhunks. Lionel Hutz: Ooohh. He’s gonna’ win. Marge: Mr. Hutz!
Aaaaaaggggggg! A lawyer… kill it, kill it! All of a sudden I’m thinking about Dick the Butcher in Shakespeare’s Henry the Sixth and his famous line: “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”. It’s also mentioned in the Eagles song “Get Over It”.
Wow… rambling and I just started? I think that’s a new record. So… this post is about our newest premium character, the Blue Haired Lawyer (BHL). For 90 donuts, you can add this character to your income earning arsenal. Not my place to say whether you should buy him, but check out this post by Alissa if you need some help making up your mind. He has a 10 part quest so that’s nifty.
Level 38 is here (woohoo!) and EA decided to go all legal on us and rolled out the much anticipated Blue-Haired Lawyer. And with the little Devil Wears Blue quest preview tease we all got, you may be asking “Should I Spend Donuts On THIS?” Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Pros and Cons of adding this Legal Eagle to your Springfield.
-Reasonably priced. At 90 donuts he’s not the cheapest character in the game BUT he’s the same price as Dr. Nick & within 5 donuts of The Rich Texan and Arnie Pye
-Premium tasks that earn 50% more than regular characters
-Comes with a quest line, that’s 10 parts (so it will take you a little while to complete)
-Has a few outdoor tasks
–Unlocks at Level 1 so if you’re a new Tapper this is a great character to add to your game to help you earn more money. This has since been changed, he now unlocks at Level 35
-Unlocks a hilarious new 16-hr task for Mr. Burns (Blue-Haired Lawyer Dino Ride)
-Another Blue-Haired Character to add to your game
– Doesn’t come with a building.
-At 90 donuts he’s at the higher end of the premium characters that doesn’t come with a building.
-After his quest line he has no other interactions with other characters in Springfield.
Personally I purchased the BLH, but i’m a bit of a completest. I enjoyed his questline and the “slip-n-fall” mentality. And I like adding different characters to the game, I really felt like Springfield could use a lawyer to help defend against Wiggum’s crazy arrest record!
However, if your donut budget is limited you might want to hold off on this purchase. BLH is not Limited-Time and will be in TSTO until the game is over, so there is no rush. If you’re thinking about saving your donuts, for now, in anticipation of a Valentine’s Day Event (and those Limited-Time items) that might be your best bet.
So Tuesday (1/14) required us to put our shades back on when we visit Springfield, but we were all still a bit disappointed that there was no new content in that update. Well Lo and Behold Thursday (1/16) rolls around and BAM update city! And what better way to welcome in a new Level than a Level 38 Conform-O-Meter post?
With the release of Level 38 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed, so I want to make sure I get this information out to my favorite Addicts! Now you’ll have all the information you need to maintain that 5-Star Springfield!
The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and XP from everything you collect in the game. When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town. If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.
The Level 38 update has introduced 2 new buildings, 2 new characters, 3 new decorations, 1 food cart & all new point amounts required to reach a 5-Star Springfield. At Level 38 here’s what you’ll need to max out your Conform-O-Meter:
As you can see, Level 38 has increased the requirements across the board. The Indolence Rating requirement has increased+10 (1 more house), the Obedience Rating requirement has changed by +20, Consumerism Rating requirement has changed by +10, the Tree-Hugging Rating requirement has changed by +1,250, the Vanity Rating requirement has changed by +1,750, the Righteousness Rating requirement has changed by +8 and the Socialism Rating requirement has changed by +96.
Now I’m sure you’re wondering, ‘How will the new buildings/decorations help me max out?’ Well, here’s how:
Springfield County Court House
Springfield Grocery Store
Lady Justice Statue
Khlav Kalash Stand
Green Peace Boat
Super excited they’ve added another building for Consumerism back into the game, especially after all of the ones they added over Christmas! Now it should be a lot easier to uniquely max out your Conform-O-Meter….rather than having 25 Kwik-E-Marts in your town!
Let us know how your Conform-O-Meter rating is doing! Are you maxed out? If not, what area currently needs a boost?
