Tips for following the leveling guide; Mafia Wars Facebook Strategy

Today's post comes from a reader who followed the guide with some success. Here are some of his tips for following the guide:

This guide totally rocks. I had doubts the first 30 lvls but once i got to Enforcer things went very smoothly.

Overall: - I did 300 lvls in 3 days, about 6-7 hours of continuous playing per day.

- it took me 4 days to achieve Master boss and 5 days for the El padrino principal titles.

- Now it's 10 days since i started the account and i am lvl 477 (i took it slower after lvl300), have 150 attack/defence, 125 health, 2550 energy, 35 stamina. All collections completed and 33 achievements. As statistics i have about 20.000 jobs completed and 75% fights won.

- I managed to have 500 TNT's, 500 guerrilla squads, 500 HU-9 helicopter.

- BEING in someone else's top mafia as a wheelman and mastermind is the most important, you can't make continuous lvls otherwise.

- Having top mafia wheelman and mastermind of 11% is also very important.

- Having most of the collections vaulted is very important for the first few dozen lvls, in order to save some time.

- Tip: DON'T do any boss until you get past lvl 150. They give a 2 ratio exp/energy, but the amount increases with lvl. You will need jobs with ratio of 2 when trying to master consigliere and underboss.

- Things go very easy and you can spare points into attack/defence or stamina once u master underboss and get the Private Island, wich offers a nice 5% more xp at every job done.

- With master boss, Cuba is a piece of cake and can be fully mastered in a few hours. I did it in about 3 hours of relaxed play. The only nasty thing when mastering Cuba is the money required to buy necessary inventory for the jobs. After you master Cuba money won't be a problem there. I have extra 10 mil pesos and nothing to buy.

  1. 300 levels in 3 days with 6-7 hours relaxed gameplay?

    relaxed gameplay my buttocks. that thing did not just happen. maybe 6-7 hours and $100 freakin to ramp your energy up.

  2. This guide has served me well. I took a bit longer than 3 days to get to level 300, and a lot longer to finally master the boss levels because of the loot drops needed. PROTIP: It's a lot easier at higher levels to trade loot items to lower level items for Blackmail Photos. Some guys are so desperate they'll give you 8 photos for a single TNT!

    I've been playing with a new character and the key is really to find those people to be a wheelman and mastermind in your group. You can even start more alternate profiles to promote your new character to a wheelman and mastermind. This ensures you'll always have the bonuses and not have to bother your friends to add you when you're a low level mafioso.

    After you do that, stick to the jobs where you get a ratio of 2:1 XP to energy (or higher). It's boring but you'll level fast. when you get extra energy from a job (or don't use energy) that's when you go after other jobs.

    At two weeks in, I'm at level 431, have a mafia of close to 501, have mastered every job tier in both NY and Cuba. I am currently working on getting my TNT, guerilla squads and helicopters so my character will be close to unstoppable.
