Pie shoppe

This will be you’ll trade your items, it’s essentially a “Crafting” area where you will combine materials to make the Figgy Puddings you need to clear the Orphans and attack the Poor House Boss.

 FIggy Pudding

Needed to craft: 1 Fig

Time to manufacture: 1hr 15mins

And here’s a reminder of where you’ll get the materials you need for crafting Figgy Pudding:

 Figs (Common) –  Get from Scrooge Peter Have A Snack, Chris Eat Dried Fruit, The Poor House, Dickensian Party Parlour, Produce Crate

You’ll still be crafting last week’s items as the main Questline requires. These were:

 Festive Drink

Needed to craft: 15 Mulled Wine

Time to manufacture: 1hr

 Pork Pie

Needed to craft: 1 Pork

Time to manufacture: 45mins

Once you select them you’ll see your items preparing in the section on the right. The clam cost to speed them up is also shown there. Remember you can be crafting up to 6 items in the Queue at a time. If the queue is full you will have to wait until one finishes before adding more into the Queue.


ORPHANS

These are the little baddies this week of the event and are quite simple to deal with, it’s just more of the tap, aim and fire we’ve seen in previous events. Before you can clear them you’ll need to get a Figgy Pudding, you’ll get them here:

 Figgy Pudding (Always) –  Get from craft in the Pie Shoppe, Christmas Cheer Mystery Box

Once you have a Figgy Pudding you will find Orphans  wandering  around your sidewalks.

Simply tap one of them to bring up the targeting screen.

Then move the net until the green target circle is on an Orphan, you’ll know it’s in target as it will turn purple, then simply hit the check mark to clear the Figgy Pudding.

I am seeing up to a maximum of 4 in my game.

The event rewards for clearing Orphans are as follows:

Per Orphan Cleared
30 Mulled Wine  (Always)
1 Holly (Chance)


POOR HOUSE BOSS

The Poor House Boss will trigger as soon as you start week 2 of the event.  You will “Trip” him with the Figgy Pudding you craft in the Pie Shoppe to get defeat him to the highest level possible and obtain the most prizes.

 Figgy Pudding (Always) –  Get from craft in the Pie Shoppe, Christmas Cheer Mystery Box

You’ll see him wandering your sidewalks with a timer above his head.

Simply tap him and you’ll see his timer, the level he’s at, the requirement to Trip him at that level and the rewards. Simply collect the Figgy Pudding necessary for the trip then hit, eh, “TRIP“.

Here is the general breakdown of trades costs and rewards. The item you need to trade may differ from mine but the amounts needed will be the same.

1X – Requires 2 Figgy Pudding
Rewards – 10 Mulled Wine & 1 Bill

2X – Requires 4 Figgy Pudding
Rewards – 20 Mulled Wine & 2 Bills

3X – Requires 6 Figgy Pudding
Rewards – 30 Mulled Wine & 3 Bills

4X – Requires 8 Figgy Pudding
Rewards – 40 Mulled Wine & 4 Bills

5X – Requires 10 Figgy Pudding
Rewards – 50 Mulled Wine

You have 24hrs to hit the highest level before he will rest (cool down). His cool down is 2 hours.

Please note when he returns he will be back at 1x unless you’ve used clams to wake him at the level he went into cool down at.


There you have the overall basics to get you started through the second Week of the New Event. Where are you so far? Anything particular you like the most? Suggestions or tips to fellow players? Let us know.
