New tier went live tonight in Mafia Wars: Cuba called "El Cacique." There are 8 new jobs available with two new loot drops. Here is a picture with all the jobs, their energy cost, and what items they require:
Couple of notable things:
New Items: the Canonazo (weapon) and the Track Loader (vehicle):
These are now the two best weapons in slot. The Canonazo, with 42 attack and 22 defense, has the same attack as TNT but with +2 defense, so nothing spectacular there. However, the Track Loader, with 37 attack and 32 defense, is a pretty nice item. Although the Track Loader is only 1 attack over the Hu-9 Helicopter, it does have a hefty extra 5 defense. With 69 total stat points, it is the best vehicle around.
Secondly, Consumable Costs:
The consumable costs on El Cacique are very high. The "Help Get An Associate A No Bid Contract" costs 8 politico corrupto, which in and of itself is pretty high. To make things worst, through the first tier, you only get 4% job mastery progress each time you do the job. In other words, 200 politico corruptos just to do the first tier. I am assuming it will drop to 3% and 2% for the final two tiers, making the grand total 872 Politico Corruptos needed to master the El Cacique tier. Wow!
Also, some New York items are needed to do this tier, including Untraceable Cell Phones, which I do not think is that big of a deal, because anyone who mastered the Boss tier should have plenty of extra phones from collecting all those blackmail photos.
Lots of new stuff to do, and with 800+ politico corruptos most likely needed to finish off the tier and a new vehicle to collect, we should be busy for quite a while!
