In this post, I hope to direct you to the episode that brought us a really cool new character…again…for the Halloween Event. Those of you not lucky enough to have gotten her last year, or those on Android, EA brought back the cauldron. If you purchase it, you will automatically get the “skin” for Marge as a witch. Now the question is, where did this character come from?
With all of the Halloween premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Cauldron to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding the the Cauldron to your Springfield.
Decoration: Cauldron Donut Price: 75 Donuts Unique?: Yes, only 1 Cauldron per Springfield Bonus: 2.25% (bonus cash & XP to all tasks) Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.03% Pros: -It unlocks the Witch Marge Costume for Marge, with a whole new set of tasks that earn at a PREMIUM rate (50% more cash & XP) -Ability to speed up a crop -Limited-Time costume from last year that was brought back. Great for new tappers and Android players who couldn’t play TSTO last year because it wasn’t available on Android.
Cons: -No quest line with it. -For 75 donuts you’re not adding a new character or building, mainly just a costume and decoration.
Final Thought: Honestly…if you can swing it, I say go for it. This is one of the more sought after items to the game, and the fact that EA has brought it back for this Halloween is AWESOME. At 75 donuts it’s not the worst item you can buy. Plus you’ll earn a decent bonus percentage rate AND premium rates on her tasks.
Most things in life that you think are deja vu are just coincidences or luck (or the computers changing something in The Matrix), but every once in a while in the life of an Addict, it feels like our pusher (aka EA) is actually listening to us.
So cool that we got more land with this update. It unlocks after you are done building the Gypsy Fortune Teller Shop as well as adding Lions, Tigers and Bears… Oh My. What’s that Alissa the Amazing? Oh, we’re not talking about current Happy Meal toys? Sorry folks, apparently it’s Ghost, Gremlins and Goo… Oh My! My bad.
I talked a little about the Gremlinhere. Add to the 3 Gs, the option of haunting buildings and possessing characters in your neighbor’s town. One word… INCREDIBLE!
Here’s a little chart I came up with to help you with the new land prices for our new present. As someone who was full up on land other than my 2D palette, this addition was so cool. It gave me space for adding decorations temporarily without giving up my 2D Addiction. Can you say Redesign Mark 5? If the image seems tiny… just click on the image and it gets bigger. (Apologies in advance if that sounds dirty.)
In addition to more land, we actually got back the following items from last year’s Halloween update:
Cauldron with Witch Marge Skin (60 Donuts)
Mausoleum (60 Donuts)
Don’t forget it looks like the Crashed UFO will be back with Kodos. Who has two furry thumbs and can’t mask his excitement? This guy!
For the lucky few that already had previous decorations from last year’s Halloween Update… our old decs started immediately giving us ghosts!
Only day one of this update and it’s already shaping up to be the Best. Update. Ever. Special thanks to my personal neighborinos who already got me to the first reward (Pumpkin House)! You guys know who you are….
Bad Dream House, House of Evil, Heck House Church Skin and the Super Collider (all from last year’s update) are currently still paying out cash by the way.
Lastly, the Trick or Treat Tasks are back from last year with the same characters (Bart, Lisa, Milhouse, Martin, Nelson and Witch Marge. From what I’ve seen so far, Marge, Homer & Burns all have Halloween GOO Tasks! STay tuned for more info on taks later! Happy Spooky Tapping Addicts! Wookiee out!
As often happens here on Kashyyyk, this Wookiee is wide awake in the wee hours of the morning. No complaints though dear readers, a little known fact is that I’m often at my most productive while the ravenous beasts and carniverous plants of the Shadowlands do their nasty business. Safely tucked away in my wroshyr tree, I decided it might be time for another random, yet hopefully poignant post.
