Mafia Wars Secret Stash Gets "New" Loot; Strategy Guide

The Secret Stash in Mafia Wars just got some items added to the loot table. I was just able to get 5 money socks off of one secret stash:


There are also some old limited edition loot pieces available in the stash now, such as the Luxury SUV (it was available previously for 25! godfather points).

While none of the new loot items are great, the 5 money socks provides an interesting possibility. Money Socks (which are normally received from re-vaulting the money laundering collection) give 50% more cash from jobs.

While this would only be a few extra million rubles in Moscow, if you were able to collect quite a few of these and stash them on a second account, you could gift them over to your main account come the release of Mafia Wars Bangkok.

If the trends from Cuba and Moscow continue, you will simply not be able to get enough Baht. However, if you collect enough money socks, you could get a big head start on Baht (Bangkok currency) once Mafia Wars Bangkok is released.

Note that I'm not saying I would recommend doing this, but if you really want that extra edge, it is certainly an option!

Also, from the Mafia Wars app:

Scheduled Maintenance Downtime: Mafia Wars will be unavailable between 8-11PM PST on Tuesday, December 15th. This is a scheduled maintenance period to continue the progress we have already made in performance improvement and resolving known user account issues. Thank you for understanding.

Looks like they are doing some serious maintenance - I can't remember an announced downtime that long during primetime ever happening. Maybe some new servers will be added and hopefully a lot of the bugs will be fixed during this time (and maybe even some new Bangkok stuff!).
