Mission Event: Dearly Departed Walkthrough

Just in time for Christmas, a little present from Zynga . . . a 9-part mission!


14 days to finish it.  You will have to utilize a few timers, but for the most part, if you don't have a lot of energy, you will not finish this mission.

Part 1:


Acquire 10 weapons (I just bought 10 in NyC).  Build 2 armors (18 hour timer) and fight 60 opponents in Chicago.  Nice first loot on this one.  3 Hotsy Totsys (102 attack vehicle).

Part 2:


Build 2 items from your Warehouse (23 hour timer).  Activate 6 crew in Chicago (8 hour timer).  Loot 15 shoes from a 864 energy job (drop rate was near 100%, don't forget to activate your double loot bonus).

Part 3:


Get 5 spam supports.  Do 40 jobs at 189 energy.  Rob 40 times (successfully) in Brazil.  You get 2 Muzzle Madnesses out of this one (119 defense weapon).

Part 4:


Clear 4 robbing boards (any city works).  Get 8 supports from a wall post.  Win 35 fights in Italy.  Done.  Easy.

Part 5:


Collect from your Truck Shop 4 times (8 hour timer).  Ice 25 opponents in Brazil (will take a lot of stamina).  Rob 10 Barracks (try to rob the same one over and over - it's easier than clearing boards).  Not sure why the loot got so much worse on this one.  At least you can gift it.

Part 6:


1080 energy job 30 times!  Declare a war 4 times (8 hour timer depending on family progress).  Take out 7 Melvillion Brothers (13 stamina each on the fight list).

Part 7:


Acquire 15 animals (again, buy from NyC city store).  1080 energy requirement again, but this time it's 40 jobs!  Fight 80 opponents in NyC.  Great rewards with 2 Suicide Spatz (144/127 armor).

Part 8:


864 energy job times 60.  Get 10 mafia spam supports.  Collect from your Headquarters 3 times (8 hour timer).  4 Sugar Daddy's for a reward.  If you don't need them, gift them!

Part 9:


Win 45 fights in Chicago.  Ask for 10 free gifts from your mafia (wall post).  Loot 25 Incriminating Documents from 432 energy job (I got about a 70% drop rate).  Collect the Z Reaper and you're done!!

Good luck y'all and happy hunting!

Mission Event: Conspiracy Walkthrough


Sorry I'm a few days late on this one, but you still have plenty of time to get it done.  It's a 9-part mission and most steps are pretty quickly done.

Part 1:


Get 6 supports from your mafia.  Fight 40 opponents in Chicago (multiple attacks on one rival counts).  Loot 18 Wooden Crates from Job (162 Energy).  Be sure to turn on your Lockpick bonus for double loot.  Took me 41 jobs.  Not much for rewards yet, but they're coming.

Part 2:


Activate 6 Crew in Chicago (8 hour timer).  Job costs 270 on Ruby.  Collect from your Distillery 2 times (8 hour timer).  Decent animals for those of you who haven't maxed on Goblin Sharks.

Part 3:


Win 40 fights in Chicago (same rival is fine again).  Loot 15 Hit Squads from Job (324 Energy, took 31 jobs).  No loot again, but experience is pretty decent.

Part 4:


Ask for 10 Wallpost helps.  Rob 30 properties (successfully) in Chicago.  Job costs 378 energy.  Sugar Daddys should help most, but if not, they are giftable at least.

Part 5:


Need 8 support spams.  Fight 95 Opponents in Chicago.  Job costs 756 Energy.  No loot again and the cash rewards are decreasing!

Part 6:


Build 2 armors (18 hour timer).  Ice 20 Opponents (have to be in Chicago).  Take out 9 Ruthless Feds (11 Stamina on fightlist).  Good loot and it's all giftable.

Part 7:


15 Wallpost helps.  Clear 3 Robbing boards in Chicago.  Loot 25 Wooden Crates from Job (972 Energy).  Took me 102 jobs.  Ridiculous!!!!  This step will probably be a stopping point for most players.  Barn Owls are good for you unless you already have 10,000 of them from fighting/robbing.

Part 8:


Need 8 of each item.  Took me 23 jobs, 9 robbing boards, and 39 fights in Chicago.  No loot, but hey, 20 Clams can almost buy you a decent loot item.

Part 9:


Get 5 mafia supports.  Job costs 810 Energy on Ruby.  Collect from your Truck Shop 3 times (8 hour timer).  Loot during this mission left a little to be desired.  The Mortal Coil is pretty good, but it's the only piece of loot that helped me in this mission.


Good Luck everybody and happy hunting!!

Oops!  On second thought, here's a little bonus mission that pops up after you collect the Mortal Coil.


8 hour timer on Distillery and Wars plus icing 25 Opponents in Chicago.  Not too bad, but will take at least 3 days given the wait times between resets.

Property Skill Bonuses

I had someone ask me for this, so here we go.  Nice little tool that helps with your builds every 18 hours.  I'll keep it updated as more properties come out.  As you can see, there are plenty of extra skills to be had every time you build.  Remember that since the fight formula leans more towards personal skills than mafia attack and defense that most of the time, it is better to add +3 to +6 attack and defense rather than build the strongest item. Happy hunting!

Mission Event: Family Gatherings Walkthrough


One mission ends, another begins.  Here comes a 9 part Italy based mission which is very very time consuming.  Use this walkthrough to time your property collects, level ups and wars and you should be able to finish on time, but it will be close.

Part 1:


Activate 5 crew in Chicago (8 hour timer).  Travel to Italy (easy!).  Clear 4 robbing boards (any city will do). Get 5 spam supports from your mafia - this gets a little tricky as Zynga transfers everything to the new gifting system.  Not everyone will get the request you send them.  Great loot for the first part of this mission, but don't get your expectations up - it gets a lot WORSE.

Part 2:


Collect 6 Severed Pinkies from robbing in Italy (getting them from the Intercept a Handoff job doesn't give you credit, took me 7 robbing boards).  Collect 6 Rail Tickets from robbing (no credit again from job, took me 6 robbing boards).  Collect 6 Sets of Hidden Charges (41 fights).  Finally, collect 6 smart phones from jobs in Italy.  It takes you to region 8, but you can go back to region 4 and collect them from the smart phone job for less (105 energy).  If you aren't maxed on Barn Owls from fighting/robbing, these will come in handy.

Part 3:


10 more spam supports from your mafia, but these are the last ones.  Collect from your Villa 4 times (4 hour timer).  Buy 3 items from your Port (23 hour timer).  No loot, but you did get 2 Hired Guns (ha!).

Part 4:


Declare a war 5 times (8 hour timer).  Rob 35 times (successfully) in Italy.  Again, no loot.

Part 5:


Do "Discover the Conspiracy" 30 times (40 energy on Ruby).  Ask for 10 Confidential Records via wallpost help.  Surprise, no loot.

Part 6:


Assassins are 4 Stamina on the fight list.  Ice 30 opponents in Italy (at least it will help towards the new Ice Season event).  Collect from your Football Stadium 3 times (18 hour timer).  2 Golden Parrots which are +4 over the Barn Owls.

Part 7:


Win 25 fights in Italy and the job costs 72 Stamina on the fight path.

Part 8:


Win 3 Wars (8 hour timer or you can be the one to finish another member's war).  Win 100 fights in Italy and the Assassins are now 10 Stamina on the fight list.  Nothing but garbage loot.  At least they could have come up with some new stuff for Thanksgiving rather than recycle loot that is a few years old.

Part 9:


Job cost is 243 energy.  Buy 10 animals from the city store (or acquire them from loot drops, whatever you prefer).  Collect from your Winery 4 times (6 hour timer).  That's it!  Lots of stalls, not much for loot, I wouldn't be surprised if most people skipped this one.  If you time everything out perfectly, it will take you 148 hours in just the property and war stalls - that's 6 days worth of waiting.  The Grand Prize is a Chomp Rocket:


Good luck y'all and happy icing!!

Mission Event: Money on the Water Walkthrough

Yes, it has been a while since I have posted, but the drop-off of Mafia Wars players has led to a decrease in traffic at the site and I have been pondering how much time to put into a revamp.

For the time being though, let's get the new mission updated.



Coming at us is a Chicago based 8-part mission.  This is nice because it will get you acquainted with the new city, plus you get 2 weeks to do it.  Get started right away though as there are a few steps where you will be waiting for timers.

Part 1:


Get 4 Crew Members in Chicago (or Brazil works too).  Buy 1 item at your Warehouse (23 hour timer).  Decent defense loot, but nothing to spectacular.

Part 2:


Collect from your Truck Shop (8 hour timer).  Ice 12 Opponents in Chicago.  Job costs 162 energy on Ruby level.  No loot, not many Clams, but experience is good.

Part 3:


Ask for 5 envelopes via Wall-post help.  Loot 20 Sonny's Suits from a 378 energy job (took me 78 jobs).  The Wharf Patrol is 15 Stamina on the Fight List.  Nice loot and experience for rewards.

Part 4:


Get support from 5 mafia via Facebook request.  Clear 5 Robbing Boards in Chicago.  Fight 40 Opponents in Chicago.  No loot, but a pretty easy part.

Part 5:


Collect 20 Locksmiths from jobs (108-216 Energy on Ruby, took me 35 jobs - stick to the higher energy requirement ones, the drop ratio is higher).  Collect 20 Robber's Utility Belts from fighting (took me 83 fights).  Collect 20 Bisects from robbing (took 26 robbing boards).

Part 6:


Took me 8 robbing boards to loot the 15 Freighters.  Make 2 items from your Speakeasy (8 hour timer if you haven't upgraded).  The job requirement is 756 energy on Ruby.  Great loot for a reward with 2 Hotsy Totsys.

Part 7:


Rob 20 times (successfully) in Chicago.  Win 20 Fights in Chicago.  Declare a war 3 times (8 hour timer).  No loot, but you are almost done!!

Part 8:


Activate 5 Crew in Chicago.  You may have to wait for your helpers to clear (8 hours).  Collect from your Truck Shop 3 times (8 hour timer).  Great loot with the River Otter.  Wish it would have been something Halloween based, but oh well.  Not very many Clams for a reward either.


Good luck, start early and enjoy!!  Happy killing.

Mission Event: Lead Into Gold Walkthrough


As a tie-in to the new Secret District, we get a new 7 step mission from Zynga.  It will take time and does require you to do jobs in the new district, so to save on energy costs, start this right away before mastering new job tiers.

Part 1:


Activate 4 Crew in Brazil (may take 8 hours if you are already full).  Acquire 8 armors via looting, city store, buying, whatever you can think of.  Jungle maps come in handy, as does the Real.

Part 2:


Buy 2 Horny Toad ATVs from the Brazil Black Market (18 hour timer).  Fight 40 opponents in Brazil (yes, can be the same person 40 times) and the job is 108 energy on Bronze.  No loot this time, but on to the next!

Part 3:


Need to collect lots of loot here.  The top 4 you need 8 each and can be acquired via jobs.  I got some in Italy and Vegas as well, so don't worry about focusing on Brazil.  The 10 Everglade Rat Snakes come from fighting (took me 45 fights) and the Golden Poison Frogs come from robbing (cleared almost 100 boards for those).  Nice 103 attack loot for a reward.

Part 4:


Wall post help for 6 Shrapshields.  Loot 18 Firebombs robbing in Brazil (took me 8 boards).  4 more Jungle Maps will come in handy in the Secret District.

Part 5:


Good old 2-for-1 special:  Win 15 fights and loot 20 Golden Tigers fighting (took me 58 fights to get them).  Declare war 2 times (8 hour timer for most depending on Family Perks).  Nice loot in the Amazon Pit Vipers which are a random drop in the new District.

Part 6:


Ice 10 opponents in Brazil.  Collect from your Barracks twice (8 hour timer) and the job costs 126 energy on Bronze.  Another random new loot drop for reward.

Part 7:


Another wall post for 6 items.  Amateur Tomb Raiders are 5 Stamina each on the fight list and the job is 144 energy.  That's it!  Great reward with the Zipa (155/85).  Get started on this right away and try not to master too much before finishing the mission.  Good luck and happy icing!!
