Before I start I want to repeat what I’ve said previously, for long term players, everything in this event’s Season Pass is returning, there is nothing new. But the cost is reduced in my games to 400 clams.
But the returning stuff you see on your VIP prize track may be worth it to you, so you need to your decision on the content AND whether you’ll want to give your time to collect the XP over the next 3 weeks. But to help you along I’ve done this post highlighting some things.
So basically is it worth buying the VIP Season Pass with no new content? Well that is what I’m going discuss below based on the facts from my game.
Is there anything new in the VIP Season Pass?
No as I’ve mentioned all the prize track characters/costumes are returning content, but only you know what you have bought or earned previously.
Is it worth buying the VIP Season Pass if there is nothing new?
Well that depends on a few things, firstly whether you don’t have and want any of the returning characters or costumes, or the clams you receive instead AND whether you want to play the event over the next 3 weeks.
There’s 3 scenarios but ALL require you to have the enthusiasm to replay the event, as you’ll need to do this to collect the XP needed to move along the VIP prize track.
Scenario 1 – You don’t have some of the returning characters/costumes so for 400 clams you could pick up 5 returning characters/costumes. That’s an ok return for 400 clams.
Scenario 2 – You don’t have some of the returning characters/costumes, so for 400 clams you could pick up a few of those and clams for those you already have, again at 400 clams you could break even.
Scenario 3 – You’ve already got all the returning characters/costumes, but again for 400 clams you could unlock VIP and pick up the clams you get instead of those. For me I could pick up 870 clams on the VIP track and 75 clams on the free track. So 945 clams are available for an outlay of 400, nice tidy profit to be made. Obviously if you do less of the track you can still end up in profit, for me getting to 1410 XP will make me back my 400 clams and 150 more.
BUT, and there’s always a King Butt, the rewards will only come if you put the time into the event to fill that 3500 XP needed to complete the track. Now for some I know up to 545 clam profit will be worth it but for others it may not, the decision is yours.
Worth remembering though is any Shrines you bought during the original Multiverse event are useless, they won’t drop the currency XP this time round.
Anyway be interesting to know if you’re going to go for the clams or not, tell us in the comments.
