DUST MITES

You will be able to start seeing Dust Mites when you trigger Pt. 1 of the this weeks main Questline.

Like most little Baddies you’ll find them wandering your sidewalks.

Now with these you can clear 4 with 1 Grenade so my advice is to put down just a single it 2 pieces of Sidewalk and the Dust Mites will gather in that one small area making it easy to clear 4 with each Grenade. Once you have at least 1 Grenade tap a Dust Mite and then place the target over the Dust Mites and Fire.

And here’s a reminder where you can get those Grenades.

 Grenades (Common) –  Get from Quagmire Toss A Bomb, Lois Launch An Attack, Buy from store, Grosser Than Gross Mystery Box, Clearing Dust Mites, Microscopic Packs, Premium Packs

The rewards you get will depend on how many Dust Mites you clear.

Per Dust Mite Cleared:
2 Fuel Rods (Always)
1 Paramecium (Chance)


Giant rats

These are still around, and you’ll need to keep clearing them to earn Fuel Rods and progress the main questline.

The event rewards for clearing Giant Rats are as follows:

Per Giant Rat Cleared
5 Fuel Rods (Always)


Microscopic packs & PREMIUM PACKS

We’ll start with the freemium Microscopic Packs.

You will find these in your store, the freemium Microscopic Pack and the Premium Pack. We’ve seen these before, remember the Present Plaza 2 Christmases ago.

Basically, you buy these, and you get 3 items dropping from the Pack content, it’s like a mini mystery box in a way.

For the freemium Microscopic Pack, you will  need to collect 6 Paramecium and then use this to buy the Microscope Pack from your store. Here’s a reminder of where to get that Paramecium.

 Paramecium (Common) –  Get from Vernon Be Microscopic, Giant Mitochondria Powerhouse, Grosser Than Gross Mystery Box, Clearing Dust Mites, Microscopic Packs, Premium Packs

The items you will get will really vary. It is essentially kind of like a blind card pick. You are awarded 3 items  randomly when you buy a Microscopic Pack and here’s a list of the Prizes available:

1 Rat Trap
1 Pesticide
1 Grenade
10 Fuel Rods
1 Clam
1 Fake Butt

Now let’s look at the Premium Packs.

Again you will find these in your store and again basically, you buy these, and you get 3 items dropping from the Pack content, it’s like a mini mystery box in a way.

For the Premium Pack, you will  need to spend 65   to open one, personally I think this is too high a price as the prices aren’t that much better than the freemium packs.

The items you will get will really vary. It is essentially kind of like a blind card pick. You are awarded 3 items  randomly when you buy a Premium Pack and here’s a list of  Prizes available:

1 Rat Trap
1 Pesticide
1 Grenade
20 Fuel Rods
5 Clams
2 Fake Butts

The example below is for a Microscopic Pack, just go to your store and buy it and you’ll see the Pack ready for you to Open.

Tap Open and you’ll see your 3 prizes.


Then simply click Go and collect your prizes..


Building infestations

These are still around and you need keep clearing them as soon instructed as last week. I’m still seeing comments from players about no infestations, please ensure you have some of the following buildings placed. If they are all stored away you won’t see any infested buildings.

Abandoned Warehouse, Quahog Wharf, Quahog Mini-Mart, Library, Flappy Jacks, Got Wood Furniture Store, Yacht Club, Lighthouse, PF Chinese, Awful, Person Hattery, Modern Mausoleum, Quahog Amusement Park, McBurgertown, Quahog City Hall, Quahog Police Station, Le Croissant Degoutant, Quahog, Cinema, Dog Park, Dansu Dansu, Sleek Office, Average Office, We Heal You Long Time, Dog Pound, Quahog Playhouse, Channel 5 News, Common Office, Madeleine’s Boutique, See Through Office, Quahog Fire Station, News Truck, Typical Office, Quahog Funeral Home, Quahog Public Library, Bob’s Funland, Quahog Oceanland, Quahog Malt Shoppe.

  1. Lois is keeping all the grenades to herself .. she drops one for every 4 times Quagmire drops .. he’s been much better than her in this aspect / as for Dick Spitz , I think it’s doable .. i still need only 3 fake butts and the Ice Crystal that drops the 3 harnesses ..

  2. I occasionally get double drops too and have been for a number of events.
