  1. When is the best time to use Godfather Points to level up when you already have an energy pack?

    ReplyDelete
  2. Use Godfather points on +4 stats rather than energy packs. In the long run putting 4 more points in energy will net more energy then getting a 1 time recharge.

  3. Is there anyway to delete your old character and make a new one? :)

  4. Not really. I believe you can uninstall the Mafia Wars Application and in 90 days they delete your character. But that requires you take a break for 90 days, at which point you probably will no longer be interested in the game!

  5. Facebook Mafia Wars will not let me promote a wheelman or a button man. I managed to acquire lots of cash & property without but.......it would be nice to have. When I click on "promote Wheelman" then chosse a person and click on promote it always says unavailable. I am at level 50

  6. I keep reading that to get a private jet, you must complete the "Make a Deal with the Mexican Cartel" job. I have completed the job and still have no private jet. Am I missing something?

  7. How do you get the private island you talk about in your guides... i can not figure it out.

  9. Private jets have a really low drop rate. Might have to do it a lot of times.


    Private island is the reward for mastering the underboss tier.

  14. Here is one question that has been asked a few times on different sites already, but nobody has answered:

    I am currently at level 17 and I have beaten boss Giancarlo Morillo a few times already, but the game won't let me advance.
    Is there some sort of requirement needed for the second boss?

  15. For specific loot, you can mouse over the loot drop icon (the yellow thing) and find out specifically what you will get. depending on your level, it may be to your advantage to skip finishing a level and go to a specific job to earn specific loot, IE in the Cuban portion, going straight to the EL Padrino and getting the Armored State car will help in the lower levels

  17. Can I use the same top mafia man as a "Body guard also use him as a Bagman? I am asking this as I have done it. Since mafia wars has been altered I have noticed all down the list says Promote, where as before it would say who was your top mafia!!

  24. Why is that even though I have more than 501 mafia members, only about 214-215 are used to rob properties? Does it have anything to do with what level you're in? For example, I'm at level 214 now, it means 214 of my members will do the robbing?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Exactly, this is why leveling is important when it comes to robbing. Btw it's the same way when it comes to defending properties, so I recommend you to try robbing lover level players.
