These are the little baddies this week of the event and are quite simple to deal with, it’s just a simple tap and they are gone.
As always you will find Griffins wandering around your sidewalks.
Simply tap one of them and it’s gone.
I am seeing up to a maximum of 4 in my game. And they seem to be released in batches of 1-2 every few hours or so.
The event rewards for clearing Turkeys are as follows:
Per Griffin Cleared
2 Shamrocks (Always)
1 Wool (Chance)
1 Bug Spray (Chance)
I know everyone is fed up talking about bugs, we’ve had so many in our games of late we’re sick of them, but I’m afraid we just can’t avoid them as the new event, is seeing them infect our Quahogs with more of the little buggers than ever. So let’s talk about building infestations….
You will start seeing buildings infested with potato bugs when you trigger the main Questline. You will then see large bugs appearing on random buildings in Quahog, this means they are infested. You’re looking for buildings that have a bug above them, like this.
There are many buildings that ca be affected, below is a list of buildings that have previously been used for this type of gameplay:
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.
I’d advise as pulling as many of these buildings as you can out of storage to try to lessen the chances of essential buildings being infested – i.e. those that are needed for character tasks such McBurgertown, Quahog Mini-Mart.
Please note this is because when a building is infested you will not be able to collect rent, finish characters actions, or send characters on actions there until it is cleared.
To clear an infestation you will quite simply need Bug Spray.
Bug Spray (Common): Get from clearing Griffins, Buy from store. (You’ll also get 1 free to use every 4hrs)
You can see how many you have in the Pesticide tab at the bottom of your screen. Please note the free Spray doesn’t show.
***Again remember as I said you automatically gain 1 free Spray every 4 hours. Just make sure you use it every 4hrs to reset the “FREE” timer***
To clear an infestation is pretty simple, every 4 hours or once you’re earned a Bug Spray, click on any building with a bug on it. This will bring up the spraying screen.
You will either see SPRAY which means your 4 hour timer has finished and awarded you a free Spray to use. Simply tap Spray and you’re done. However if your timer is still counting down from 4 hours, you will need to use a Bug Spray collected from playing the event. In this case you will see FILL ‘ER UP. Simply tap this, then tap SPRAY and you’re done. If you’re timer is still counting down from 4 hours and you’ve no Bug Spray, and lets face it that’s going happen until a lot, then you’ll just see NEED MORE. So just come back later when your free Bug Spray is ready.
Clearing infestations drops the following:
Per Infestation Cleared:
6 Shamrocks (Always)
1 Potato (Chance) – Only shows as a drop after Sir Knight-A-Lot appears
Sir knight-A-Lot BOSS
The Sir Knight-A-Lot Boss will appear as soon as you trigger Part 2 of the main Questline. This is your Main Boss this week of the Event. You will “Pelt” him with Potatoes you collect during the Event. You need to defeat him to the highest level possible and obtain the most prizes.
Potatoes (Common) – Get from clearing Potato Bugs, Potato Cart
You’ll see him wandering your sidewalks with a timer.
Simply tap him and you’ll see the level requirement trade and rewards. Collect the Potatoes necessary for pelting him 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 Potatoes
Rewards – 8 Shamrocks & 1 Beard Trimmer
2X – Requires 4 Potatoes
Rewards – 16 Shamrocks & 2 Beard Trimmers
3X – Requires 6 Potatoes
Rewards – 24 Shamrocks & 2 Beard Trimmers
4X – Requires 8 Potatoes
Rewards – 32 Shamrocks & 3 Beard Trimmers
5X – Requires 10 Potatoes
Rewards – 40 Shamrocks & 3 Beard Trimmers
You have 24hrs to hit the highest level before Sir Knight-A-Lot will rest (cool down). His cool down is 2 hours. You can wake him immediately for 4 Clams.
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.
