Around the World 101: Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the long awaited, Around the World Crafting post….where I give you the how tos and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  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. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

Now I know some of you still have questions about what to craft, if you should craft or Level Up, what happens in future Acts…so, as we’ve done in the past, we’re here to break it all down for you.  So let’s take a look at the basics of Crafting for the entire event.

We broke down the details behind Norbert’s tasks during Act 1 (which you can find here) but some of you have requested a list for each day’s task with the location to send the character.  This way you can better use your plane tickets each day.

So in an effort to make your lives easier, here’s a breakdown of each of the tasks for Act 2…

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what happens when Springfield goes Japanese…

Simpsons Around The World Calendar – Act II

calendar-actii-main

I think by now we have all figured out that the initial panic associated with the printing of the calendar is unfounded.  It really just takes logging on every 4 hours, for days on end, with no relief, to get everything you want (if that includes earning Bonuts).

I think you will find that Act II is achievable and believable, which is the benchmark of setting any reasonable goal (if you believe the motivational strategies of the  Power of Positive Thinking guru, W. Clement Stone).

So..BELIEVE IT…and ACHIEVE IT!!
