Treehouse of Horror XXXII Act 2 is Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know (updated and complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Murky water, tress have changed colors, and leaves are blowing in Springfield, that can only mean one thing…the annual Treehouse of Horror update is upon us!  Yes, with this annual event we never know if we’ll get a trick or a treat, if it’ll be Halloween-y or spoof-y…but it arrives in our pocket-sized towns nonetheless year after year.  And this year, marks the 10th…yes the TENTH…Treehouse of Horror update in TSTO.  So what does EA have in store for us this year?  Dinosaurs!  In true Treehouse of Horror spoof style.   As always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on November 10th.  However, Act 3 will start on October 24th (Note the Sunday start date). 

Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between Springfielders on how to get rid of the dinos…

Helen Lovejoy: Dinosaurs are destroying this town…not that it wasn’t already in ruins!
Grampa: Don’t blame me. Blame dinosaur me! And while you’re at it, could you put dinosaur me out of its misery?
Quimby: There’s no need for anything rash! City Hall has contingencies for situations like this.
Superintendent Chalmers: The Springfield National Guard?
Quimby: Something with even more firepower…the Springfield Militia!
Bumblebee Man: Son solo cinco hombres en camiones monstruo!
Sideshow Mel: Translating for our English-speaking audience: “That’s just five guys in monster trucks!”
Cletus: YEE-HAW! Translating for our non-Hillbilly-speaking audience: “YEE-HAW!”

This triggers the Act 2  questline, This Means Dino War and is followed by  2hr tasks for Quimby, Sideshow Mel, Homer, Grampa, and Grampasaurus, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (155), and a task to collect/tap 15 dinosaurs.  This Means Dino War is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.

Siddmartha: Excuse me, I’m looking for a quiet place to meditate and focus on my Zen. Would you happen to know of anywhere?
Ned: Whenever I’ve got a yen for some Zen, I find the First Church of Springfield serves up a heapin’ helpin’ of solitude.
Siddmartha: I don’t mean to offend, but I find churches distracting…
Ned: Well, since you seem to be some kind of devil-worshiping pagan, perhaps you’d prefer a nice séance circle? Maybe a cauldron to make your Buddha brew?
Siddmartha: First off, if I did make Buddha brew, which I do not, then I would call it “Brewda”. Secondly, you seem to be confusing Buddhism with witchcraft. Not that there is anything wrong with being a Wiccan.
Ned: *gasp* That’s Wiccan talk! Spare my children and be gone Wiccan!

This triggers the Act 2  questline, Om is Where the Heart Is and is followed by a 4hr task for Siddmartha, Lisa and Ned, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (200).  Om is Where the Heart Is is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.

Reminder: Rise of the Robots Act 3 Starts Sunday!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some of you had mentioned you’d like a separate reminder post for when the next Act of Events starts.  So here’s that separate reminder post…

Act 3 of Rise of the Robots starts Sunday, April 25th, at 11 am ET! 

Act 1, and Act 2 of the event won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished those you have plenty of time to do so. But Act 3 will be starting up with its own prize track, questline, and premium characters!

Here’s who you’ll need free to start Act 3:

Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa all have tasks (outside of event currency earning tasks) for Part 1 of Act 3.

You’ll also need the characters that earn event currency free.  As a reminder, they are:
Homer
Marge
Bart
Lisa
Ned
Skinner
Wiggum
Frink
Robot Rumble Announcers (New Premium)
Love Bot (New Premium)
New Premium Character for Act 3

And finally, there will be two new premium combos available during Act 3.  One of those will help earn event currency, and the other will be a Gil Deal (that will NOT earn event currency).

You will need 150 donuts each for those Act 3 combos (so 300 donuts total).

And that’s it, all you need to know to start up Act 3 tomorrow!

I’ll be back a little later today with the Act 2 Full Dialogue!
