Mafia Wars Cuba Collections and Collection Items; Strategy Guide

Update: Mafia Wars: Cuba is now live for everyone to play. These collections are in game live as shown below.

Yesterday, new collections were added to Mafia Wars: Cuba beta test. As of now, there is one collection for each tier, an example of which is pictured below:

Just like New York, the collection items in Mafia Wars Cuba are random drops from the jobs of that tier. In other words, you can get all the collection items by doing the same job over and over, all that is required is a bit of luck (or patience). Here is a list of the collections, the items within, and the bonuses received for vaulting the collections:

  1. What is after El Padrino Job Tier?

  2. i'm afraid i have to disagree on the point that Cuba collection drops are random and not associated with a job. I've completed the el Patron level thus far, and almost all collection items are associated with a specific job. For instance on the el Soldato level, the only job that gave me Long Island Ice Tea, was the "Persuade a local to talk". I had stacks of other drinks, but as long as i didn't do that job, i didn't get the ice tea.
    Also have noticed the same thing on other tiers. Doing a specific job leads to stacking of a specific collection item. Wich brings me to my point. What job should i do to get sergeant major for the tropical fish collection? I have all the other fish at 5... but no Sergeant-Major and since the tier is complete, i wouldn't like to spend too much energy on random jobs

  3. I disagree with the last comment I have seen nothing to indicate you only get certain items with certain jobs. One time I got almost a full set of cocktails dong the "Assault A Snitch's Hideout" job, in fact i did a whole energy run there and picked up a long island ice tea just to double check.......

  4. Just get mastery for the tier and unless you are horribly unlucky, you should finish the collection from that.

  5. ignore collections for now
    i found that completing every job in every job tier for the achivement got me most of the things
    what you dont loot from luck just get a mafia member to send you
    im sure your friends will have many of what you need just like you will have many of what they need

  6. Just cheat have shit loads of facebook accounts and just send the items to your self when your other accounts find the items.
    Easy done

  7. Is ther nothing after El Padrino Principle on Tagged mafia wars?

  8. What is the special item/consumable you get after vaulting any of these collections?

  9. Do you know why El Cacique tier does not have a collection? I'd appreciate any info you have!

  10. @anon asking about boosts - see the boosts post!

    @anon asking about el cacique - not sure, probably because it was added later then the other tiers.

  11. how can i play a EL PADRINO PRINCIPAL in tagged?

  12. Your blog is very informative. Eating mindfully has been very hard for people these days. It's all because of their busy schedules, work or lack of focus on themselves. As a student I must admit that I have not been eating mindfully but because of this I will start now. It could help me enjoy my food and time alone. Eating mindfully may help me be aware of healthy food and appreciating food.
