Hello there my lovelies!!!
There’s a new boss in Quahog and believe me she’s as mean as she is green.
The road to the Emerald City was never going to be easy, but I think it’s going to be wicked taking on the witch who earned her broomstick the hard way. Luckily for us, she does have a weakness, one that won’t see her taking up water sports anytime soon. And it’s that weakness we’re going to use to exploit as we try to defeat her with a combination of water balloons, spray bottles and super soakers. Darn where’s a water cannon when you need it most.
So follow, follow, follow me as I show the Wicked Witch us Addicts won’t surrender Dorothy Lois without a fight.
THE WICKED WITCH
The Wicked Witch is similar to other bosses we have seen in events, in that she’s the big baddie who keeps on giving, but how do we knock her off her broomstick and get her to drop her haul. Well we need to attack her with water balloons, spray bottles, or super soakers. The only problem is you don’t know which item you need until you complete each attack on her, so there’s an element of luck and guess-work in these fights. She will appear in your game at Pt. 4 of the main Questline, Once Upon A Rainbow. Until you unlock Scarecrow Peter the only option to gather the resources needed to battle her is from the premium character, Toto Brian. But don’t panic, there’s plenty of time to start attacking her once you’ve unlocked Scarecrow Peter.
The amounts of water balloons, spray bottles, or super soakers needed will be the same in every players game for each defeat level but the type of item won’t be. Many players report success in these battles by stocking up on a bunch of each item before attacking, I’ve personally done this but this strategy usually depends on a long respawn time, with her returning in 9 hours this will be a little more difficult at first. But 2X and 3X will be very possible once you’ve unlocked Scarecrow Peter & Dorothy Lois.
There’s 2 big plus points for me in this battle and these are that TinyCo have continued the new requirement that you only need to defeat the boss until 4X, rather than 5X, which was impossible for the majority of players. And that the rewards are very generous, you really needn’t panic if you can only battle at the lower levels early in the event. So thanks for listening to us and adapting these battles TinyCo.
The amounts you will need to defeat her at levels 1X through to 4X are as follows:
|Battle Resource||Attack Level|
|2 Water Balloons OR 2 Spray Bottles OR 2 Super Soakers||1X|
|4 Water Balloons OR 4 Spray Bottles OR 4 Super Soakers||2X|
|8 Water Balloons OR 8 Spray Bottles OR 8 Super Soakers||3X|
|16 Water Balloons OR 16 Spray Bottles OR 16 Super Soakers||4x|
Now I’m going be honest I’ve not managed to hit her to level 4X before the Wicked Witch timed out. You only have 24 hours to defeat the Wicked Witch up to 4X and I just can’t collect enough stuff to get there, yet. I defeated her at 1X, 2X. Then just started collecting for a fresh attack once she times out and returns. You can of course spend clams to bring her back at the level she timed out at, but with the decent rewards I don’t know if that will be necessary. Only time and playing will tell.
The goodies she drops is three-fold, Emeralds for buying items in the Fallen Farmhouse and decorations in the store. You will also collect Party Shoes which are needed to unlock Dorothy Lois, and Magic Wands to help towards unlocking Glinda.
What you will get at each level is as follows:
|15 Emeralds, 4 Party Shoes & 6 Magic Wands||1X|
|20 Emeralds, 8 Party Shoes & 12 Magic Wands||2X|
|25 Emeralds, 12 Party Shoes & 18 Magic Wands||3X|
|30 Emeralds, 20 Party Shoes & 30 Magic Wands||4X|
You will need 28 Party Shoes to help unlock Dorothy Lois and at the moment 42 Magic Wands to help towards unlocking Glinda.
***Note if you’ve not placed Dorothy Lois in your game yet to unlock, the Party Shoes will still drop and count towards the total you need***
WATER BALLOONS, SPRAY BOTTLES AND SUPER SOAKERS
Now how do we get those Water Balloons, Spray Bottles, and Super Soakers? Well it’s all down to character drops.

ATTACKING THE WICKED WITCH
The battle modus operandi is similar to that of previous boss battles, click on the Emerald City and you will get the battle screen. It will tell you 1: What item and how many of them you need to defeat her at that level, 2: The rewards for defeating her at that level, and 3: How much time you have left before she disappears.
Once you have gathered the required water balloons, spray bottles, or super soakers the attack button will appear. Press this to complete the attack at that level.
Now once she times out she won’t return for 9 hours. There is now a timer to show the countdown to her return, you can see this by clicking on The Emerald City. The screen will tell you countdown timer until she returns and if you’re in a hurry the clam cost to resurrect her. By the way the respawn timer is another thing we’ve been asking for that TinyCo have brought into the game.
This screens shows the timer and resurrection cost if you defeat her right through to 4X.
And this screen is an example if she times out before you can defeat her, she timed out after defeats at 1X and 2X in this example.
I have noticed in my game the 9hr return timer doesn’t automatically start but is activated when you load the game after she leaves.
And there you have it the dummies guide to defeating the big, bad, green machine that is the Wicked Witch. But remember just because she appears at Pt.4 of the main Questline doesn’t mean you’re expected to be battling her immediately. But if you are battling her, how are you getting on? Are you winning the battle of the brooms or are you away licking your wounds for the next round? Got any battle strategies to share with your fellow addicts? And are you enjoying the event so far? Tell us in the comments as you know we lone hearing from you.
