So you think you’re as rich at Carter Pewterschmidt? Own a fancy house like Buzz Killington? You sure gotta lot of clams there, whatcha gonna do with them?

BUY LOTS OF STUFF OF COURSE!!!

Clams

Now hold on there a minute. Are you SURE you want that? With all these cool Guys In Black  limited time event items in the game, it is very easy to get carried away. Before you know it, Clamshell Shock! All gone!

So before you go ahead and buy to your heart’s content and your wallets empty, here’s a few things you might want to know about Agent Zed, the Great Attractors Ball , the Secret Weapon Room and the Worms Statue.


AGENT ZED

Character/Costume: Full Character
Clam Cost: 280 Clam IconClams
Unique: Yes
Drops: 1x Squid Net every 4 hours
Size: N/A
Other Info: Can fight Ballchinians and Edgar The Bug
Fight Stats: Health 8, Hit Power 4, Knockout Chance 30%

PROS:

  • A New Full Character
  • 4hr Task to always drop 1x Squid Net
  • Can Fight Ballchinians
  • Can Fight Edgar The Bug
  • 2  permanent Animated Tasks
  • Fully tasked with Questline
  • Voiced

CONS: 

  • Frakkin 280 CLAMS!!!
  • Reliant on other drops to be able to fight Ballchinians & Edgar the Bug, namely Arrest Warrants & Extra Strong Bug Sprays
  • 8hr recovery period after health fully depleted in battle
  • Won’t be useful after the Event

Math of It:
With regards the Squid Nets, well it’s simple, putting him repeatedly on the 4hr Test New Tech task in between fights will see you able to collect on this task up to a maximum of 6 times a day. So that’s up to 6 Squid Nets a day you can grab, and that’s a potential 36 Squid Nets over the 6 days left of this Phase. Over the duration of the event you can get a possible 162 Squid Nets, although how useful they will be in upcoming phases is anyone’s guess!

Final Thought:
It’s a new character. Yes the clam cost is a bit pricey, but it’s better than a costume. There’s nothing particularly awesome about his animated tasks though, but his usefulness lies in his Squid Net drop and Fight abilities, so most will base their purchase decision on this rather than his ongoing tasks after the event. But fantastic animated tasks are something that can sway me on purchasing a Character I’m tempted by but not quite sold on.  It’s one of those if you like the Character and want a head start in the event, grab it. But if you’re on the fence, well I’d say pass.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and I can tell you, I bought him, although I’m beginning to wonder if I’ve made the right decision with the ability to use him on Fights reliant on drops of Arrest Warrants & Extra Strong Bug Spray. I’m wondering if I’ve picked the right premium item to buy this phase, and to be honest only time will tell if I called this one right or wrong.


GREAT ATTRACTORS BALL

Building/Decoration: Decoration
Clam Cost: 130 Clam IconClams
Unique: Yes
Drops: 1x Party Game & 1x Sunglasses every 12 hours
Earns: $0 & 35xp
Size: 2×2
Other Info: None

PROS:

  • Always drops 1x Party Game every 12 hours
  • Always drops 1x Sunglasses every 12 hours
  • Will help you greatly towards getting The Worms unlocked before their 7 day timer expires

CONS:

  • Won’t be useful after the Event

Math of It:
With regards the Sunglasses, well it’s simple, you’ll be able to collect from this up to a maximum of 2 times a day. So that’s up to 2 Sunglasses a day you can grab, and with this alone you’d collect all the Sunglasses you need for Agent Pee in just 3 days.

With regards the Party Games, well it’s the same, you’ll be able to collect from this up to a maximum of 2 times a day. So that’s up to 2 Party Games a day you can grab, however with this alone you won’t collect all the Party Games needed within the 7 days The Worms timer allows, but combined with the other ways to get Party Games this will be a very good help towards beating that 7 day timer.

Final Thought
It’s a new decoration. Yes the clam cost is a rather excessive, but it’s got its plus side,and that’s mainly the Party Game drop, as these are 20 clams a piece to buy out if your time starts to run out on the 7 day timer. I’m not sure it’s got much value on the Sunglasses as I’ve already got 4/8 from the other drop sources.

Personally I’ve not bought it, and that’s because I rarely buy decorations, and also because I’ve not started the timer on The Worms, I’m still deliberating on when to pull that particular trigger.


SECRET WEAPONS ROOM

Building/Decoration: Decoration
Clam Cost: 250 Clam IconClams
Unique: Yes
Drops: 1x Arrest Warrant every 6 hours
Earns: $0 & 25xp
Size: 4×6
Other Info: Animated

PROS:

  • Animated
  • Drops 1x Arrest Warrant every 6 hours
  • The Arrest Warrants dropped will help you engage in more Fights

CONS:

  • Frakkin 250 CLAMS!!! It’s a decoration TinyCo, c’mon get real guys.
  • Dont know if will be useful for upcoming Phases, it would be a big help in purchase decisions if TinyCo gave us crucial information like this
  • Definitely won’t be useful after the Event

Math of It:
With regards the Arrest Warrants, well you’ll be able to collect on this task up to a maximum of 4 times a day. So that’s up to 4 Arrest Warrants a day you can grab, and that’s a potential 24 Arrest Warrants over the 6 days left of this Phase. And over the duration of the event you can get a possible 108 Arrest Warrants, although how useful they will be in upcoming phases is anyone’s guess! I’ve tried get confirmation from TinyCo if they will be the item used for future Phases fights but no response as yet. Sorry!!!

Final Thought
It’s another decoration which will end up in storage with all the others but I’ll admit I’ve been tempted to buy this as I’ve bought Agent Zed and this would allow me to get more use out of him battling Ballchinians. But the clam cost is a just too pricey when I don’t know if it will be useful for the whole event. If TinyCo had put up information saying whether Arrest Warrants would be used for the whole event my indecision would be solved, as if it were be useful for the upcoming Phases I’d have bought it. As it stands I’m not, and hey I may regret that if it turns out to be useful next Phase, but by then it’s TinyCo’s loss as I won’t buy it then.


WORMS STATUE

Building/Decoration: Decoration
Clam Cost: 290 Clam IconClams
Unique: Yes
Drops: 6x Galaxy Marbles every 10 hours
Earns: Nothing
Size: 2×2
Other Info: None

PROS:

  • A New very cool looking decoration
  • Drops 6x Galaxy Marbles every 10 hours

CONS:

  • Frakkin 290 CLAMS!!!
  • Won’t be useful after the Event

Math of It:
With regards the Galaxy Marbles, well  you can collect on this task up to a maximum of 2 times a day. So that’s up to 12 Galaxy Marbles a day you can grab, and over what’s left of this Phase alone that’s a potential minimum of 72 Galaxy Marbles. And over the duration of the event you can get up to a maximum 384 Galaxy Marbles.  Now with the exchanges probably changing next phase they won’t be the main exchange item but they usually are still used but to a lesser extent, but obviously we can’t guarantee that, only talking from experience of past events.

Final Thought
It’s a decoration, yes it’s a nice, slimy, I mean shiny one but 290 Clams for worms? I can get them in my garden for free and spray paint them gold. Which of course I wouldn’t do as that would so be cruelty to worms but you get my drift. Way too costly in my opinion, only for those with a lot of clams they really want rid of. And that’s not me, I count my clams like Scrooge every night.

Of course in the end once again it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I said I’m not going to be the worm on TinyCo’s hook when it comes to buying this.


So there you have it the facts & figures and my personal thoughts on this Phase’s premium buys. Just remember though with it being part of a Limited Time Event, just make sure you make up your mind as once the event is over it is most likely they will be gone. In the end it’s your call as obviously hat you buy and what you don’t buy is your own personal choice we can only share our thoughts and let you know what we did and what we think, and why.  But don’t purchase it until YOU are sure. ALL SALES ARE FINAL!

  1. I also purchased zed and though I have gotten warrants today to fight a ballchinians again, he never has healed from fighting yesterday. His last fight was around 4pm yesterday and here it is 1pm today and he is still just at 4/8 power right where he was after his last fight. So I use one warrant to start fighting a ballchinian, he missed and I got nothing and now he’s got no power left. I’m out of clams now and can’t afford healing capsules to revive him. Now I’ve got two more warrants and tons of ballchinians walking around to fight but dead zed who doesn’t seem to ever heal in an almost 24 hour period! So there’s that to consider too. If you can get the warrants and use the clams to purchase the character, make sure you can afford an endless supply of revive capsules too or else he seems to be worthless except as an extra character to collect nets for the squid aliens. Yes I emailed tiny Co in game but don’t expect any replies until the event is over like last event!

    • If Agent Zed had 4/8 health, he could still Battle, so he wouldn’t heal, he only goes into Healing mode when his health reaches 0, so you use him until he hits 0 then you need wait 8 hour for him to heal. I advise once he goes to 0 you tap on a Ballchinian and you will see him healing, counting down from 8 hours

  2. Got Zed as well, pretty underwhelmed at his help so far, the big issue is the lack of warrants, so, to RT’s point, it’d be really nice to know the plans for warrants in the next phase because 250 clams is a lot to spend on a deco room that may only be useful for 5 or 6 days…geesh…come on, TinyCo, give us a hint here…

    • I assume they’ll still be in use as bad guys usually carry over each phase and still appear and need to be cleared out.

      I just can’t get exact stats on Warrants because, well, events have a base set up months in advance… but actual live play can vary and be changed once the actual content hits our games. So they’ll be there, just don’t know in what capacity fully til next phase is live.

  3. Didn’t realize during an attack your character can actually MISS. Such a waste of hard earned warrants, not to mention the cool down and additional time required to get marbles. Had Zed since event started and have only managed one kill in 36 hours.

    • Yes you can miss them, but likewise they can miss you. Like you’ve I’ve got Agent Zed but he’s not giving me the forward boost I’d hoped
