Bangkok New Loot Items

Tons of new loot will be added to the game with the release of Mafia Wars Bangkok. Here is a sneak peek at what you will get:

From the Store


Weapons:
Armor




Vehicles



Nothing to special from the actual in game store. However, there is a faction specific store which has items that you can buy after you do enough jobs for a specific faction. Have a look:


In the Yakuza store, you can buy a Yakuza Assassin (armor) for $480,000 Baht. This item has 50 attack as an armor, making it the best offensive piece of armor to date. You need to be of allied (I believe 1450/1500 faction points) status with the Yakuza in order to buy this.

Alternatively, you can buy a Shaolin Bodyguard in the Triad store for $470,000 Baht. This item has 51 defense as an armor, making it the best defensive piece of armor to date. You need to be of allied status with the Triads in order to buy this.

I will cover faction in more detail in a post later tonight. At first glance, it appears Yakuza is more offensive and Triads are more defensive. So if you want to win fights on offense, side with the Yakuza. If you want to win fights on defense, side with the Triads. Again, I will post with more detail & strategy later tonight.

----

I will also post up job loots later tonight. There is nothing too high-end yet though in game. The best pieces are all in faction specific stores at the moment, which I will cover in detail later tonight. For now, get out there and play, or beg someone for a pass!

  1. I concur with your analysis thus far. Probably going to burn some godfather points on energy to get into it really good. I wanted to know if anyone else was having an issue with the mini boost not working. I tried the toolbar, then links. Its saying ready (and i know the last one was at 7pm last night) but when I click nothings happening

  2. triad or yakuza points increase or decrease depending on the faction you helped. also alliance will change as you go from one chapter to the next in a single episode.

  8. I just emptied my energy bar and tried to do a 59 energy cost job and it said
    "You need more energy to take this job.
    It requires 8, you only have 7. Refill your energy for 10 reward points."
    i waited a bit and was able to do it for 8 energy points :D

    nice bug xD

  17. HAHA you don´t need moscow loot! Bangkok loot is waaaay better! Everyone who trades for Moscow loot is dumb!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Anyone else here noticed the energy cost of a job bug?

    heard it also happens in moscow

    ReplyDelete
  19. what about a piece of lotto collection (have 2 spare passports). energy bug usually happens if you are on your few remaining points (i.e if a job cost is 128 and click on it repeatedly, you get to perform the job even though you have below 128 points)

    ReplyDelete
  20. The job energy bug works EVERY TIME consistently. When you are down to, for example, 53 points on a job that requires 110. DON'T CLICK ON "DO THIS JOB AGAIN"! But scroll down to the original place of the job and click on "do job". It will give you everything for what ever you have left in your energy bar. I did it all 8 levels (I am finished with Moscow as it is right now). I just need to buy the business that costs 350.000 baht. I don't have the money. But I will tomorrow. :o). Fighting isn't open yet. Also posting a job won't work yet. But it's a lot of fun. The prizes for completing episode 1 all four levels is a Tiger Sak Yant tattoo with armor 65 attack, 42 defense!!! And episode 2 all 4 levels is a Royal Thai Tank with... wait for it... 58 attack and 74 defense. This makes these items by far the best items in the game at this point.

  21. I, too, have an extra Bangkok passport. I am level 610 daily player. I am looking for lotto collection pieces. Let me know if you want to trade. I have vaulted both collections in Bangkok: the Chess Set and the Masks. the chess set gives 5 EP and the masks give 5 defense. I have 8 of each now for trade or boosts.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @annalisa thanks for explaining it well :D

    i just bought the triad business

  23. There is a glitch for helping people out too. You just copy the link to help someone on a job and then paste it in the browser. You can do it 25 times in a row. Easy way to pick up a bunch of money and xp for nothing

    ReplyDelete
  24. not on all "versions" I suppose. mine says NOT AGAIN! :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have one lotto collection, the Baccarat Shoe

    ReplyDelete
  26. They've fixed the energy glitch.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I heard there is a glitch to get lots of money, and to get lots of envelopes. Can someone post them?

    ReplyDelete
  28. the question is, how much effort would it take(if possible at all), to side with one faction, being abled to get their items, and then switch sides, to get the other sides item.
    how many jobs would you have to do to get your bar up high enough, and then afterwards bring the bar up for the other faction!ß

    ReplyDelete
  29. When you do a faction job, it gives you +3 for that faction and -1 for the other.

    So you can click both and fill up both sides.

  30. What are the job XP/Energy rates? Most of Moscow is around 1.8 (with top Mastermind/Wheelman). As a 600+ non-pure energy Mogul, I'm kinda hosed as far as doing jobs endlessly. The top Cuba jobs hit 2.0, and the Boss jobs get up to 2.1. I'm hoping Bangkok is better than Moscow. Any help?

    ReplyDelete
  31. The average ratio seems to be between 1.3 and 1.4, it's awful.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Anyone interested in the Baccarat Shoe for a passport?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah, the ratios are never very good for the starting levels though.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The ratios are really low it seems - even in Moscow they were 1.68-1.7ish

    ReplyDelete
  35. oh great, low en/xp ratio?
    its doesnt have to be as good a cuba, cause being abled to do cuba in a few hours, isnt quite satisfactory in the long term, but lower then moscow!? it took me weeks to pull through there! and i was 400+ with an almost pure energy account.

    ReplyDelete
  36. yeah im interested Magnus

    ReplyDelete
  37. i have 3 extra bankok passport want 2 trade it?any takers?

    ReplyDelete
  38. ok, how we do it? Send me a FR

    (Click my name)

    ReplyDelete
  39. 1.3-1.4x? Ugh. Moguls just keep getting screwed.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks Bangkok, all that Moscow loot is worth exactly...squat.

    ReplyDelete
  41. At the choice points, would you recommend getting both Triad and Yakuza one away from mastering, then doing one a final time to choose the side? You get more faction points overall, but it might make it harder to get the last items.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I did that earlier, but since you have two choice points per level, I've been choosing one Yakuza and one Triad. It appears you can go back later and redo those jobs to build up your trust with each side. I'm trying to avoid "wasting" energy on such low en/exp jobs.

    ReplyDelete
  43. i can still gift bangkok loots me and some of my friends have been trading bangkok loots and i now have alot like dirt bikes silk scarf kage jet bosozuko convertible riding elephant jade inland pistols and some others to

    ReplyDelete
  44. Low energy and requiring a lot of energy somehow Bangkok would not be worth it if it were not for the items. Have many spare passports though (nearly one every 10 jobs).

    ReplyDelete
