There’s No Place Like Quahog 101: Phase 3 – Wicked Witch

Hey there Oz Addicts

With Phase 3 underway and the Wicked Witch still defying gravity, I just wanted to give a little update regarding what that mean, green flying machine is up to now. Yes, the Wicked Witch is still with us and now has new drops which will help us to unlock Glinda and Cowardly Lion Joe.


The arrival of a new Boss would usually send a shiver down my spine but I found the Wicked Witch to be rather generous in Phase 1 & 2, maybe she’s trying mend her wicked ways to be popular.  Defeating her at 1X and 2X was achievable in phases 1 & 2 and with no increase in the materials needed to battle her in week 3, we should all rest easy knowing this is a battle we can try to win. But I would be stockpiling resources to hit her up to as high a level as possible as the sands of time are ticking down with the event ending on 29 November @ 3PM Pacific.

Let’s take a look at Phase 3 and see exactly what the Wicked Witch will be dropping during this part of the event.

***Please note the party shoes, magic wands, axes and glitter from Phase 1 & 2 will still drop even although their is not always a visual for them in the battle screen***

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 should already be in your game from Phase 1, she appeared in the Oz event area at Pt. 4 of the main Questline, Once Upon A Rainbow. There are currently two freemium characters that can collect the required battle resources,  Scarecrow Peter and Dorothy Lois, and one premium character, Toto Brian.

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 1X and 2X will be very possible once you’ve unlocked Scarecrow Peter & Dorothy Lois.

Again the rewards are very generous, you really needn’t panic if you can only battle at the lower levels in this event.


BATTLE LEVELS

The amounts you will need to defeat her at levels 1X through to 5X are as follows:

Battle Resources

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
32 Water Balloons OR 32 Spray Bottles OR 32 Super Soakers 5X

Now I’m going be honest I’ve up until now managed to hit her at level 4X and that’s because I bought Toto Brian and was gathering resources for a few days at the end of Phase 1, I’ve done the same stockpiling in Phase 2 and am hopeful I can hit a streak of 5X if I’m lucky with resources needed. You only have 24 hours to defeat the Wicked Witch up to 5X and in my opinion many freemium players just can’t collect enough stuff to get there. But just try to gather resources to hit her to as high as you can as this final phase is shorter than the previous weeks. Once you defeat her or she times out you can of course spend clams to bring her back at the level she left at, but personally I’d only pay clams to revive her if  time was running out and I had the resources to battle her again


REWARDS

The goodies she drops  will vary depending on who you’re currently trying to unlock, there’s Emeralds for buying items in the Fallen Farmhouse and decorations in the store. You will also still be able collect Party Shoes which are needed to unlock Dorothy Lois, Magic Wands, Glitter and Crowns to help towards unlocking Glinda, Axes to help unlock Tin Woodman Quagmire and Mane Combs to help unlock Cowardly Lion Joe.

What you will get at each level is as follows, but bare in mind if you no longer need an item it obviously won’t drop.

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 5X.

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 wicked facts about the Wicked Witch and her Phase 2 drops. How are you getting on defeating the big, bad, green machine that is the Wicked Witch. 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?

  1. Need 5 more wine for lion Joe …and the drop rates of dog meat is terrible need 6 more any chances of getting lion Joe …

  2. I still need 5 Lube Tubes for Tin Man Quagmire and don’t get enough drops to fight Wicked Witch. Giving up on this event.

  3. I am mercifully done with battling as I unlocked Glinda the other day and have earned all the combs for Lion Joe. I was never able to battle her past 4X, so I would spend one full cycle just collecting to battle her every other appearance. It worked, fortunately…

    It’ll be tight to unlock the Wicked Witch as hay drops from defeating monkeys has suddenly ceased – I’m two short of placing the Fortune Teller needed to earn her…

  4. I did the maths and worked out the drops for Glenda and Lion Joe will come really close to the end time but are manageable – phew! I am still very willing to buy some of Joe’s items early if it means unlocking the witch as well!

  5. I’ll barly get Tin Man Quagmire before the event ends. I gave up on Glinda after the second item to get her changed to something different after week 1.

  6. Can anyone post a character profile of Cowardly Lion Joe. I’d like to know what level his character tasks need to be.

    What level does he have to be on to “Have Cowardly Lion Joe act Regal”

    Hopefully I can have him do it immediately because it looks like unlocking his is going to be down to take me right down to the wire.

    And since that action will be my last action required for unlocking the Wicked Witch I don’t want to spend clams to buy Joe and then not be able to complete unlocking the Wicked Witch.

    Thanks!

  7. Just wondering if the 5x battle resources is correct – 32 water balloons but only 16 spray bottles or super soakers?
