Doughnut Farming, Is It Possible?

Note: The term ‘farming’ is used to describe buying/building lots of the same things to earn something in a relatively short period of time.

Everyone wants them but it’s not always so easy to get them for free. That’s right, I’m talking about the holy grail of Tapped Out, doughnuts! Free doughnuts are ridiculously hard to come by, even for a free game but, thanks to level 41 there’s a way to ‘buy’ some for in-game cash!

Level 41 brought us the Bloodmobile and I have to say, I’m glad it did! It will cost you $132,000 to purchase one and because it isn’t unique, you can have as many of them as you want. That’s a good thing, trust me!

After purchasing a Bloodmobile, you’ll get a flat rate of 13,200XP but it could be much higher depending on your bonus multiplier! My bonus multiplier is quite low at 120% right now because I’m reorganising most of my town.

The number of Bloodmobile’s required to reach the bonus doughnut level will vary from player to player depending on how many times you’ve levelled up past the MAXIMUM level, which at this point is level 41.

After you’ve purchased what could be an insane amount of Bloodmobile’s (I needed 75 at one point) you can sell them back for $33,000 each. It’s not a huge return but it’s cash back none the less!

I’d only recommend doing this if you have a huge cash reserve. I had something like 60 or 70 million and spent about a quarter of that on Bloodmobile’s. Remember too that if you don’t get three doughnuts on your first box, you’ll need up to $100,000 to take another go to get them!

Happy Doughnut Farming!

More Level Guides Coming Tomorrow!

Level41.png

I haven’t been able to publish any new or redesigned pages in a while but tomorrow I’ll definitely be posting the Level 40 and 41 level guides. I’m working on the back log of levels which I hope to have completed and published by the first or second week of June.

After that, I’ll be moving on to the unreleased content page, the new player guide and the expansion pages (Krustyland/Squidport). That is of course, if something doesn’t happen game wise to slow me down! I’ll keep you updated on the progress!

Your Thoughts On Level 41?

characters_level41

Level 41 is without a doubt the shortest permanent level update ever released for Tapped Out lasting only 3 days or so. It brought with it a character that was never seen before its release, Bernice Hibbert as well as a few decorations. While I always welcome any kind of content update I can’t help but feel that this is one of, if not, the worst updates they’ve ever released if you compare it to the others. But, what do you think? All I know is, I hope they have something else planned, and soon!

Should I Buy… Chester & The Unfinished Shed?

Chester Dupree

Although you knew he existed before level 41, is Chester Dupree and his half built shed really worth the price tag? Lets find out!

Pro’s:

  • It’s an exclusive character made specially for Tapped Out
  • The a building included (sort of)
  • Comes with the ‘Hibbert Ain’t Got Shed’ questline
  • Some of his tasks are funny

 

Con’s:

  • You’ve NEVER heard of him before level 41
  • He comes at an over inflated 150 doughnuts
  • His questline is pretty short
  • He’s not voiced
  • The ‘Building’ is really just a decoration because it doesn’t generate any cash or XP

 

Overall, unless you’re a completest like me (how else could I give you all the walkthroughs!) I’d pass on this for now and buy some of the less expensive, better known premium stuff.

Side Note: Both walkthroughs will be posted in the next few hours

Should I Buy… The Duff Party Liner?

Tapped Out Duff Party Boat.png

It’s by far one of the coolest looking items in the game, but should you buy it?

Pro’s:

  • 2.75% Bonus
  • Another Item to Add to Squidport
  • Duff Branded
  • Cool Animations When Tapped, Fireworks Shoot Out of the Front and Back

 

Cons:

  • Expensive for a Decoration – 100 Doughnuts
  • For a Few More Doughnuts You Could Get Otto and The School Bus
  • It’s Quite Large Compared to Other Boats
  • Doesn’t come with a Character
  • There Are No Tasks Associated With It

Overall, I love it and had to have it but I’d suggest that if there are other premium items you want first, wait, buy those, this boat isn’t going anywhere!
