Hello There Clammers One and all! Today’s very special Helper post comes to us from Cassandra. Cassandra has in the past written posts about the Freemium perspective of the game (most recently her thoughts on week 1)…and we thought, “what the hell, let’s do it again!” So here you go you crazy rascals…enjoy!
(Oh and P.S Thanks Cassandra for the post!)
It’s week two, fellow Phi Beta Freemium pledges!
How are you getting on this week?
I’m positively swimming in Spell Scrolls after using my earned clams for Zeus’s Fraternity House and earning both Toga Peter and character Zeus at the end of last week.
I suppose I should have purchased a fountain instead, as it seems to be the Ambrosia that I’m having trouble collecting this week. Lack of the 1000 bottles of it caused me to delay getting character Zeus until the last minute and then to purchase the Parthenon in order to advance to week two took until Saturday!
So I’m behind again, even with the boosters and collecting the first weekly character. But it’s only week two and perhaps I can catch up?
I didn’t spring for the booster this week. Well, not on purpose. I managed to unlock Hades’s frat house on accident and I’ve written in to TinyCo for a refund but I haven’t heard back yet. I was thinking of springing for the small fountain to get a jump on the Ambrosias but I don’t know if I will be able to now as it took a substantial chunk of my earned clams.
Hades’s Soul Scrolls have been coming at about 3-4 per day for me. I’ve been using them to defeat the Minotaurs all weekend but just managed to get two of them to drop a Fleece Monday morning, allowing me to purchase Hades’s Kitchen from the Campus Store. I’m stuck on Give It Up To The Gods: Part Three waiting for more fleeces to drop.
Anyone else seeing a lack of fleece’s dropping? Seems like it might be a good idea to use the Soul Spells to defeat Boss Hades and get the bones for Tri-headed Brian instead. At least those have been dropping. I’ve collected 1/10 bones, 5/15 collars, and 3/8 awful scripts. I’ve got less than 1000 Ambrosia’s towards his 3000. I’d much prefer getting him to character Hades but it’s slow going.
Got any tips for week two for your fellow Freemium users?
