Rocky Times in Quahog Character Profile: Rocky Balboa

Hello there Addicts, it’s time to get in the ring. Ding Ding!!!

Yes with the new Rocky Times In Quahog event, we’re getting some new Characters and one of them just happens to be Rocky Balboa.

Let’s throw you some information on what Rocky Balboa can do in our silly lil games.

Rocky Balboa is a New Character added during the Rocky Times In Quahog event. As with many characters in the game in order to get him you have to collect lots of stuff! You will be directed to unlock him via Pt. 3 of the Boxing Ring Of Dreams questline, which directs you to place the Brain Trauma Daycare from your store. Once you purchase and place this Rocky Balboa will appear for you to start unlocking . You will only have 7 days to fully unlock him though as he is a timed character.

Requires:

  56 Barbells (Always): Mighty Mick’s Training Gym
15 Shiny Robes (Common): Boxing Ring
29 Meatballs (Common): Lino’s Philly Cheesesteaks OR Lightweight Boxers
32 Protein Powders (Extra Rare): Clear Chickens OR Eye of the Tiger Herbalist


Rocky Balboa is part of the Boxers and Dreamers Facespace set, which is worth 10 clams if you complete it.

Once you have finished collecting all the Materials for the character Rocky Balboa will be available in your game.

He does come with a Questline, The Italian Stallion, more on that in another post.


Rocky Balboa does come with a complete set of Tasks! Tasks that will help you earn $$$ & XP! He also has a 4hr event task with a chance to drop a Gym Pass.

Let’s take a look at some of Rocky Balboa’s Tasks:

Task Time Earns Drops/
Level
Strike A Victory Pose 2hrs 30  20
 Tenderise Meat 4hrs 50  30 
 Train Like A Champ 6hrs 65  45 
Teach Boxing Lessons 8hrs 80  50
Try On Fedoras 10hrs 90  59 
Yell For Adrian 12hrs 100  65 

**Note: Within an Event, tasks may change and vary as the Phases come and go. So some of these tasks will be temporary. Others may be one time use. Some will stick around even after the Event. We won’t know until the Event Ends.


IS HE VOICED?

Yes, he is.


And there you have it, the complete breakdown for Rocky Balboa!

    For the third event in a row I have had to submit a ticket regarding the drops for a timed character. My issue are the common and uncommon drops. I’m getting the rare and extra rare items no problem. I have been stuck at needing 7 shiny robes to get Rocky for a day and a half to two days now. I have sent Peter boxing four times in a row without a single robe dropping. I was ahead in this event and now I’m falling behind because I’m not sure if I should go into Phase 2 without Rocky.

  2. Well it looked looks like I won’t be getting Rocky unless I dish out 980 clams!!!!
    I opened him and Peter up at the same time (Stupid I know)!
    I am only able to play 1-2 times a day due to work and family so I’m far behind getting drops.
    But I guess Tiny Company knows most people can’t live on their phones, so they put timers on characters so people have no choice (if they really want that character) they will have to buy it.

    I really wish they wouldn’t put timers on characters.
    I’m makes the game less fun for me. I feel rushed! I want to enjoy the game and play it to zone out and not worry about a timer and not getting a character in time. 😦

    Well… since I can’t get Rocky this round. I will have to focus on the next character, and hope I get him in time. Drop rates are awful on my end.

  3. I find myself in the unfamiliar situation of having finished the Main Questline with two days to spare, even with waiting until I had both of the buildings needed to drop Items to unlock Rocky Balboa!

    5 days to go on Rocky, and I just need 8 Protein Powders, 8 Barbells, and I think 7 Shiny Robes (which in my head I always call Silky Robes for some reason 😆)! Unlike what a number of other posters have mentioned, I’ve had very few Protein Powder drops via the adorably silly Chickens & instead have gotten them from the Eye of the Tiger Herbalist Store’s ×5 drop. So glad the building drops so many at once, because when I saw we’d need 30+EXTRA RARE Items, I panicked inside just a bit! 😜

  4. Unlocked Rocky yesterday got the Rocky steps too. Just waiting for week 2. And wondering how long it will take to get “Don King” Cleveland… So far so good.

  5. i was only of silly ones to place him as soon as the event started so i had to unlock Boxing Peter at the same time so it was double the challenge. i just grinded (ground?) the hell out of everything for 5 days and unlocked him with time to spare.

    The chickens really helped with the protein powders at the start but i think the drop rate may have been adjusted as the days went on so i had to rely on the building more for the drops.

    So it is entirely possible to do but you need to extra vigilant with everything and try and get timings bang on so you don’t waste or miss any drops in the day.

      I’ve had 23 out of my 28 protein powders from chickens, just need 4 more and Ricky will be unlocked

      • That was the ridiculous thing… I got exactly 1 protein drop out of the building and the rest from chickens. I’m surprised I unlocked Rocky well before the RussianTigger superstar did 🙂

  7. 1 day and 13 hours to go on his timer, and I need 29 barbells, which puts me at a ‘buy’ for 146 clams…TRYING to exhibit constraint and patience and not just buy him now as I’d like to get that ‘buy’ value down…not going to get all 29, but hope to get 12 – 18 more in the next day and a half, which should put me in the 55 – 85 clams ‘buy’ range…I’d be OK with that if I can get the drops…

      • Bought him within my ‘buy’ range with 10 hours to go, spent 81 clams but got 10 in return, I’m OK with 71 clams for a full character, a wee bit on the high range of my want price, but it is what it is…very quiet in Quahog now, Rocky, Mort and Jerome are working on tickets, Peter and Apollo are fighting lightweights, I’ve been saving up steaks in anticipation of the next phase…

  11. Even though I screwed up and started the timer right away last Wednesday I’m going to unlock him as I just need four more barbells. Lucky

      Haven’t you unlocked Boxer Peter?

      Like

      • Nope. I still need 3 weights. The earliest Mort can give me what I’ll need to play the other part of the game to get the weights to finish off Boxer Peter will be tomorrow morning. And that’ll leave me with less than a day to complete Rocky. I haven’t come close to completing any of the requirements to get him and 2 of those items, I have none at all because getting the buildings that drop them are also really hard to get.

        This is the real way this game plays. Unless you choose to spend actual money, it’s incredibly hard to get anywhere with this game. And that makes it kinda not so much fun to play.

        Let’s put it this way, in most 4 week events, I’m lucky if I manage to get even part way into week 2. I’ve yet to complete a week 2. Or even close to completing a week 2.

          Sorry you’ve struggled so much this first week, I know it can be tough if you can’t play a lot. My insomnia is what helps me, but I don’t recommend losing sleep over any game. Good luck getting Boxer Peter today

        • Do you not play very often or something? I’ve never spent a cent on this game and I’ve been finishing most events for the past 6 months. I finished Boxer Peter last Friday or Saturday… I’m quite surprised you’re still trying to unlock him

        • Do you not have Jerome collecting Gym Passes too? I can totally see it being frustrating & very difficult to progress if you only have 1 person able to collect the Gym Passes!

          *fingers crossed* Hope you pick up Peter’s costume ASAP!

          At least it doesn’t seem like you’d miss TOO much if you don’t get Rocky; he doesn’t fight in the Boxing Ring or anything. Yeah, the extra character collecting Gym Passes wouldn’t hurt, but it shouldn’t be a huge deal.

          Good luck!!

  13. Just unlocked him. He’s so cool with lines straight out of the movie.

  14. I have about a day and a half left on the timer and only a handful of robes and barbells left to go. Figure even if the drops are light, the clam cost to buy the final items will be low enough that I’ll be willing to get him. (Currently a bit over 100 clams, so even with bad drops today, I figure I can get him for less than 50.)

    Did anyone else run into a bug where the punching bag timer ran down without ever giving you targets to tap/punch? Only happened to me once (on iPhone 7) so far.

    • Not the exact same thing, but I’ve noticed that sometimes when I enter the Gym, the timer displays only 19 seconds (and on some extremely rare occasions, just 1 second). I made the mistake of starting the training when it read 19 seconds and indeed, the clock started at 19 seconds and counted down. After that, I always check the timer before starting the training. I’d be worried that if I start it when the timer reads 1 second, then it would turn out exactly as you described: the timer would expire after 1 second before any of the targets appeared. I’m on an Android phone (Galaxy S6).

    • Yeah, I’ve noticed a weird lag re:the Punching Bag Mini Game too. Just start randomly tapping all over the bag & you’ll start to see them show up.

      And because of this issue, I prefer to wait until I have enough Gym Passes collected to play a few rounds, as the problem only comes up on the 1st bag of a new mini-game session. Once I’ve played through once, all subsequent games work properly from the getgo. I even managed 7 in one game! I usually get 6, though. 😊 Good luck!!
