Rich knight BOSS

The Rich Knight Boss will appear as soon as you trigger Part 1 of the main Questline. This is your Main Boss this week of the Event. You will “Pelt” him with Cabbage you collect during the Event.  You need to defeat him to the highest level possible and obtain the most prizes.

 Cabbage (Common) –  Get from clearing Potato Bugs, Cabbage 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 Cabbages 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 1 Cabbage
Rewards – 8 Shamrocks & 1 Golden Cane

2X – Requires 2 Cabbage
Rewards – 16 Shamrocks & 2 Golden Cane

3X – Requires 3 Cabbage
Rewards – 24 Shamrocks & 2 Golden Cane

4X – Requires 4 Cabbage
Rewards – 32 Shamrocks & 3 Golden Cane

5X – Requires 5 Cabbage
Rewards – 40 Shamrocks & 3 Golden Cane

You have 24hrs to hit the highest level before The Rich Knight will rest (cool down). His cool down is 2 hours. You can wake him immediately for 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.


Griffins

These are the little baddies from last week and are still important to the event as they drop Gold Roulette Tokens for unlocking Thelma. And as you know they are quite simple to deal with, it’s just a simple tap and they are gone.

The event rewards for clearing Griffins this week are as follows:

Per Griffin Cleared
2 Shamrocks (Always)
1 Golden Roulette Token (Chance)
1 Bug Spray (Chance)


Building infestations

Yes these are continuing this week and are just as annoying as last week, well they are supposed to be Bugs, so guess it’s only right they are bugging us. You’ll deal with them the same as last week.

And remember 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. But if it’s like last week they will latch on to the essential buildings.

And this is a pain 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, O’Doodys Outhouse, 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. However please priorities buildings where characters tasks are complete. To do this go to Thelma, and select the task, for example I clicked on Family Books and then Barbara struggle to get around.

Now if she is finished her task you’ll see this screen. So clear the bug and complete the task and put her back on it straight away.

If she’s not completed the task yet you’ll see this screen with either Fill Er Up or Spray if you’re free one is ready.

If you see that go back to Thelma and chose another character task until you find one that’s ready to collect.  This is the most efficient use of your Spray. And saves you trying time things. Thanks again to Wildbill for this tip.

infestations drops the following:

Per Infestation Cleared:
6 Shamrocks (Always)
1 Potato (Chance) – Only shows as a drop after Sir Knight-A-Lot appears
1 Cabbage (Chance) – Only shows as a drop after Rich Knight appears


Sir knight-A-Lot BOSS

The Sir Knight-A-Lot Boss will continue to appear and you’ll need defeat him for the main Questline if you should choose to complete it. But he’s also a continuing source of Shamrocks. You’ll attack with him as last week using Potatoes.

 Potatoes (Common) –  Get from clearing Potato Bugs, Potato Cart

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

2X – Requires 4 Potatoes
Rewards – 16 Shamrocks

3X – Requires 6 Potatoes
Rewards – 24 Shamrocks

4X – Requires 8 Potatoes
Rewards – 32 Shamrocks

5X – Requires 10 Potatoes
Rewards – 40 Shamrocks

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 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.


There you have the overall basics to get you started through the final 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.

  1. Any word on when we will get a new floor or two at Tan Lines? With 441 characters now, it’s nice to have a place like tan lines to park the unused ones.

  2. Anyone having trouble with the Family Book drops for Thelma? I’m at 0 of 15 after 3 days of trying, not sure if a bug or really bad luck.

  3. Hi. I have quite a serious problem in the game, but I may have found a temporary solution. I’ll share it in case somebody has the same problem:
    I can’t place buildings anymore, not from the market or my inventory. I get an error message (Duplicate download’) and the game reloads itself. This is happening with buildings from the event and with other stuff I have in storage. I could buy dansu Dansu and start building it though (I didn’t have it). Is this happening to anybody else? (I’m playing via nox in my desktop pc because the game stopped working on my tablet pc after the last update).

    First I couldn’t place the Brewery and got stuck in week 1. I managed to move on after storing the Tavern. Today I found I couldn’t place Thelma or the Pot of Gold Bank. Again, I tried storing a random building and I could place Thelma. Then I started buidling Dansu Dansu with no problems. I had to store another random building to be able to place the Bank because it crashed when I bought it the first time, just as with the Brewery and Thelma’s table.
    Apparently I can place new stuff if I store something first. Luckily, I like having an actual town with tons of buildings grouped in blocks with streets, so I do have things to store.

    I contacted Support but they haven’t answered. Do you have any other ideas? It can’t be a space/memory issue because it seems that if I have to actually build the item the game doesn’t crash. The problem seems to be if the building is already built (inventory or pre-built event stuff).

  4. I was excited when I finally had enough shamrocks to buy the O’Doody Outhouse with it’s chance drop Of 1 Bug Spray every 4 hours, but was immediately letdown when it came with a 12 hour timer instead. Am I personally being tortured or is the 12 hour timer correct?

  5. Has anyone else noticed that Francis has a new quest line for this event? ON A TIMER. I already had him (maxed) but when the event went into week 2 he came into play again. Its called “Path of the righteous man (Francis Griffin reveals a dark secret)” and I’m about to finish pt. 3. Was interested in the reward but cant find a mention of it here or faqs. Thanks!

  6. I was trying not to spend any clams on this event, but when Pt. 2 of the Questline dropped and one of the tasks was to Defeat Sir Knight-a-Lot (Complete 5x streak), I had to rethink my strategy.

    I had already beat him at the 4x level, so I spent the 58 Clams (40 for more Bug Sprays and 18 to Revive Sir Knight-a-Lot at the 5x level) rather than waiting to collect a full 30 Potatoes (I only had 6 at that point). That would have taken too many days to complete. Especially since Griffins are not yielding as many Bug Sprays (because of the Gold Token) and using the Bug Spray doesn’t always drop a Potato.

    But after last week’s 600 Shamrock boondoggle of a building, it’s very disheartening for freemium players to be tasked with a second massively time-consuming task.

  7. Has anyone else noticed that since we’ve entered week 2 of this irish event, griffins are appearing even less than before? I’m getting on average 1 every 2 hours, where before it was 1 every hour 😦

    • I’m seeing like 1/2 the griffins and 2x the bugs. Could just be me being super frustrated and having a warped perception…lol
