Christmas 2015 101: Crafting Act 2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!  IT’S CHRISTMAS!!!!!!  Snow is falling in Springfield and snowmen are being built, Gingerbread is cooking and IT’S CHRISTMAS!   May be less enthused about other holidays but Christmas is my favorite!  Favorite at home and favorite in TSTO!

For the last year or so, EA has broken up Events into stages.  Where every couple of weeks new prizes will be released.  They’ve also, over the last year, added an element of crafting to each Event, where you pick which prizes you want and craft accordingly.  And they’ve continued both methods into Christmas 2015.

While the prizes themselves are pretty self explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not.

We broke down the details on crafting for Act 1 here but now that a new Act has hit, let’s take a look at all the new craftable items added for Act 2…

Christmas 2015 101: Best Snowman Ever

Special thanks to Kim (kimberlyah794) from the Addicts community for helping me out and writing this post!  

Ho, ho, ho, Tapperinos!

Here in the Midwestern United States, it appears we are all getting a green Christmas this year, but not in Springfield.  In fact, there is so much snow, Homer and the rest of our Springfieldians (if thus they can be called) have gone a little snow-crazy, thanks to a competition with everyone’s favorite neighbor, Ned Flanders.

By now, most, if not all, of you may be finished with the Best Snowman Ever.  But for those still working on it, we wanted to provide you with the details of this snowy behemoth.

Christmas 2015 101: Gingerbread Mansion

Special thanks to Kim (kimberlyah794) from the Addicts community for helping me out and writing this post!  

Merry Christmas, Tappers!  Things are certainly growing more festive in Springfield every day!  Merrymakers getting hopped up on whatever is in a Hot Squishy, we have (or are working on) a Snowman large enough to block the sun, and decorations are keeping us all in the spirit!

By now, many of you have wrapped up the Effigy in White questline (or are close) with the Best Snowman Ever.  A post on that will be coming up shortly.

Once you complete your snowman, Ned will realize it’s time to bake up “some similar-sized gingerbread-y!”  Who knew Flanders could be so competitive?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!  IT’S CHRISTMAS!!!!!!  Snow is falling in Springfield and snowmen are being built, Gingerbread is cooking and IT’S CHRISTMAS!   May be less enthused about other holidays but Christmas is my favorite!  Favorite at home and favorite in TSTO!

While the prizes themselves are pretty self explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not.  However, crafting for this event is pretty simple and straight forward…and there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to get every craftable item you want this time around.

Now I know some of you still have questions about what to craft, if you should wait or craft now and what will happen in future Acts for Christmas…so as we’ve done in the past, we’re here to breakdown all the crafting fun for you guys.  So let’s take a look at the complete guide to Crafting in Act 1….

Christmas Challenges=Bonus Donuts!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Daily Challenges first arrived way back in 2014 with the Stoncutters Event, and since then EA has been improving on them with each Event.  Typically we’ll see prizes awarded each day for completing them, and last Christmas we saw a special bonus character for completing every challenge in 24 days!

Well with the 2015 THOH Event EA decided to sweeten the deal and award Bonuts (bonus donuts) for completing a week’s worth of tasks on time (5 tasks in 7 days).  And with the 2015 Christmas Event they’ve brought Bonuts back!

 

Let’s take a quick look at how to unlock the Daily Challenges and earn those sweet bonuts! (20/week)
