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 week 2)…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!)
Also a note…I’ll be doing my best to catch up on some posts today..thank you for your patience :)- Alissa
Hey week three Phi Beta Freemium pledges!
Have you advanced to week three play yet? Once again I had to wait until Saturday morning for enough Ambrosia to unlock Tri-Bri and advance myself.
A tip: Don’t sent Tri-Bri on his quest line task right away. He has a task in the main quest line that needs to be accomplished and that can’t be done if he’s tied up doing something else for 12 hours.
I didn’t hear anything back about my fat-finger purchase of Hades’ fraternity house so I suppose I’m just going to have to write those clams off as a loss. I did enjoy the extra boost in Soul Scrolls though, so there’s that. Not having to wait is good.
Between week two buildings that dropped items for Tri-Bri (Hephaestus’ Workshop and the Theater of Dionysus) and those required for quest lines, I managed to buy everything in the week two University Store except the character Hades. I wasn’t really jonesing for him and seeing as how useless the Zeus character has been the past week, I don’t count that as a loss.
As for the leader boards, I’m not even paying attention to all that. I have 134 coins and the lowest on my leader board has 332 so there’s no way to watch up. Besides, I’m still bitter about not getting Bertram and the Cyborg Dog from the Second Coming Star Trek event that I worked so hard for. They deleted my contact support request without answering that one too, so I kinda think, what’s the point? Seems like Leaderboards are only for the players who invest in a lot of clams. Guess they ought to have a perk, eh? Good luck to them.
I love seeing the reverse mermen walk around. Their little butts are hilarious. Even with only two characters that earn Seaform Scrolls (Lois Make a Bedsheet Toga & Herbert Eat Dolphin-Free Tuna) I seem to be keeping up with creating them, enough Soul Spells to clear Minotaurs and collect fleeces, and enough Lightening Spells to trade for Golden Apples.
Neptune is kinda neat looking but I’m not sure I can get 5000 Ambrosia in the three days and ten hours left to unlock him on top of everything else we’ll need to advance in the quest lines. Buying a fountain at this point seems like a waste. If they were discounted as the weeks go by that would be cool but why pay full price when more than half the event has gone by?
I’ve placed Billy Finn but have only collected two cans of tuna toward unlocking him. Kind of a bummer that we had to collect all that stuff to place him and then he’s also got a billion things to collect to unlock him. But he doesn’t have a timer so I have hope that I can get everything needed for him by the time the event is over. I hope he’ll be voiced, he’s great!
How did you guys fare in week two? Did you snap up Hades? How are things going toward getting Billy Finn and other things in week three?
