Do I Want That? Principal Shepherd

So you think you’re as rich as 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 Fast Times At Griffin High  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 Principal Shepherd.


Character/Costume: Full Character
Clam Cost: 250 Clam IconClams
Unique: Yes
Drops: Task to drop 1 Towel every 3hrs, Task to drop 1 Radioactive Cheese every 4hrs & Task to drop 1 Scrap Plastic every 6hrs
Size: N/A
Other Info: None

PROS:

  • A Principal character from the show.
  • 3hr Task “Organise Files” always drops 1 Towel
  • 4hr Task “Argue With His Ex” always drops 1 Radioactive Cheese
  • 6hr Task “Catch Tardy Students” always drops 1 Scrap Plastic
  • 1 Animated Tasks, which is very funny, see image above
  • Fully tasked with Questline
  • Voiced
  • Came 3rd in our Poll of most wanted Characters
  • *** Now in Phase 4 always drops 1 Pom Pom***

CONS: 

  • Frakkin 250 CLAMS!!!
  • Tasks are to drop the items that we probably already have plenty of.
  • Won’t be useful after the Event

Math of It:
I wanted to give you an overall idea of how he COULD benefit your game play. And it’s simple you can use him on one of his 3 drop tasks to get you the following:

1 Towel every 3 hours, that’s up to 8 Towels a day.

1 Radioactive Cheese every 4 hours, that’s up to 6 Radioactive Cheese a day.

1 Scrap Plastic every 6 hours, that’s up to 4 Scrap Plastic a day.

****Phase 4 1 Pom Pom every 4 hours, that’s up to 6 Pom Poms a day****

Obviously these can then be used in the Griffin Gym to create Rat Traps, Rat Tails and Spatulas.


Final Thought:
Personally he’s a character that’s appeared in 30 or more episodes, so he will be a welcome addition to any fan of the shows game. And I think any decision to buy him will be based on that rather than his drops as if you’re anything like me you’ll already have plenty of each of his drop items. Perhaps it would have been better to give him drops of the end products from the School Gym, ie Rat Traps, Rat Tails or Spatulas. But as I say buying decisions will be based on him being a popular staple of the show.  I think he’s a very tempting buy.

****Added in Phase 4, he now drops 1 Pom Pom every 4 hours, that’s up to 6 Pom Poms a day****


So there you have it the facts & figures and my personal thoughts on one of this Phase’s premium buys, Principal Shepherd. 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. Principal Sheppard was the character I was most looking forward to, so when he became available to buy I instantly wanted to buy him, but I didn’t have enough Clams, and even with getting 7 Clam adds a day I still wound’ to have enough come the final day of the event. So for the first time I took a Shard offer for ‘Game of War – Fure Age’, which would give me enough to buy him, and 2 days later I got my Clams and brought him immediatly. My reason for getting him wasn’t for his item drops, I have more than enough of these, but because of him being one of my faveourite characters from the show so I’m more the happy to have him walking around in my game.

  2. I also think you should be able to do something with your in- game money,like buy characters from past events.Ive got over 8 million coins just sitting there doing nothing,I think its about time they bring this option to all their dedicated players…come on TC throw us a bone

  3. I really wish they would add the option to buy characters with your in-game money! I’ve accumulated over 10 million and really have no use for it except unlocking the rare bit of open property. The choice between spending clams or your in-game money on premium characters would be a welcome one! I would definitely buy Principal Shepherd if this was the case.

  4. It’s a shame that he doesn’t drop spatulas.
    The Lunch Lady’s Trailer only drops one spatula after a 24 hour wait!
    I was hoping for at least 2 to give a fighting chance of clearing 5 Michael Pulaski within his 24 hour timer.

  5. This is probably the toughest decision I’ve had to make as far as a premium character in this game goes. I have over 1300 clams from ads and neighbor visits and white/black Jesus drops and such, so I can certainly afford him…but it would be much better if he was going to be useful. I’m sure he’ll stick around until the end of the event, though, and if he tangibly helps in the last week that’ll make the decision an easy yes.

  6. I’ve been waiting for him to show up since the event started. I grabbed him. And you never know – he might be useful in some future event.

  7. It is a shame that he only drops crafting materials. I am already overloaded on everything because of the bottleneck, so he is pretty much useless to me.

    I suppose that I should thank TinyCo for making that decision a no-brainer…

  8. Hi, my 1 day 50 token unlock is patches the t rex, is it a full character or decoration as i already have the patches decoration and don’t want to waste 50 tokens. Thanks

  9. This one is tough as I think I voted for him in the poll you reference…and he is a ‘principal’ character (no pun intended, LOL!)…but I don’t need any more stuff to be dropped – I’ve got more than I can convert at this point and collecting is not an issue, time is…now if he dropped clams or another mechanism to speed up conversions at the gym, then there’d be no question…but to quote RT, “Frakkin 250 CLAMS!!!”, especially this far into an event and especially when he’s not buying much value at this point…yes, I am a huge fan of the show, but I may have to pass and hope he ends up in the “Best of” event at the end of the year…

  10. Bought him. He’s really the only character I wanted from this event. I really enjoy/prefer to have characters who actually have made appearances in the show in my game. JMO of course.
