Bangkok Job Mastery Loot Rewards

I figured I would consolidate all of the Mafia Wars Bangkok Job Mastery item rewards in a single post rather than having them spread out across several posts. Additionally, I now have in-game pics of the 5A and 5B rewards, and since I am a bit picky over these sorts of things, I wanted to have the actual pictures before I posted up the stats. With that said, here they are:

Episode 1 (Brawler) - Tiger Sak Yant (armor; 65 attack, 42 defense)



Episode 2 (Criminal) - Royal Thai Police Tank (vehicle; 58 attack, 74 defense)



Episode 3 (Pirate) - Harpoon Cannon (weapon; 88 attack, 51 defense)



Episode 4 (Commandant) - Armored War Elephant (vehicle; 96 attack, 69 defense)

I'm sure the Thai government is thrilled that an Armored War Elephant is considered more powerful than their royal tanks.


Episode 5A (Oyabun) - Ronin Armor (armor; 72 attack, 111 defense)

Thanks to Thor and Thomas for this pic!


Episode 5B (Dragon Head) - Typhoon Cleavers (weapon; 70 attack, 112 defense)


---

So, it looks like this is it for Bangkok. Overall, even with the 4 levels of mastery and the pirates, satellite phones, and drug shipments, it was definitely easier for me to complete then pre-nerf Moscow (though I'm sure the 25% mini energy packs helped with that).

On the whole, the loot upgrades are fairly disappointing. The thought of collecting 500 Lloyds Spectres for a measly 500 defense points is not all that appealing to me, and the fact that many of the best drops from Bangkok are tied with those of Moscow just adds insult to injury.

I do like the idea of 2 "best" items (armor in this case) being from the faction store, but it certainly is a bit disappointing that these 2 very expensive armors are the only real way to advance my character in fighting. Due to their high cost, it doesn't seem like it will be possible to get more than 5 or so of these armors per day (and that's being very generous, most players will get 1 per day or even less) - and since you need 1,000 to completely outfit your mafia, it'd take anywhere from 6 months to a couple years to completely outfit your mafia.

Who knows though, if this trend of not getting upgrades continues, these expensive armor pieces still might be the best-in-slot in Las Vegas!

  1. Well, by making the faction store so expensive, at least it gives some value to collecting money from businesses each day, even after you complete the city. I'm still collecting money from Moscow and Cuba and I'm really not sure to what end.

  4. I was wondering if anyone was having trouble being able to gift Cleavers... I can give Lloyd's Spectres and everything else, however I am unable to send Cleavers. Any idea of how to make this possible/when it will become possible? Thanks.

  5. @11:57 anon - I agree and disagree. It's nice that they will give us a reason to go back and collect from each business, but you'll have to collect 5 full collections just to get one item. They should bump the business $B total up some so that you can buy an item once a day; that'd make it much more worthwhile and keep people coming back for many months.

    @anon - Thanks for the endorsement! I will have bangkok updates for it soon, still working out some math and other strategies.

    @Adam - known bug, eta on fix unknown. They were pretty quick about fixing tantos and spectres so I figure it will be soon enough.

  6. Good to see the mastery items are actually mastery.

    But dont forget extra cash can be made from jobs and fighting, in a few months when people have baht laying around fighting could be a better source of income.

  7. Anyone can tell me how come I have two (2) TIGER SAK YANT in my Loot ??? :)

  8. @Mifkin, I agree that right now money from fighting is definitely the most lucritave way to make cash (with just 250 stamina I make between B$200k and $B1million a day -- granted, with the help of stamina buffs from the toolbar).

    But I can't forsee it become *more* lucrative. Once people stop playing bangok, there will be nothing to replenish their money supplies, and thus nothing to take from them through fighting.

    And the people that still collect through businesses when they are done are probably the same people who bank it immediately. So really the only source left will be people who are farming for items but fail to bank their job income; and I can't imagine that will be more than the people who are now just working through the jobs for mastery and fail to bank their job income.

    I agree with MWG that there would be a lot more incentive to continue collecting from businesses when done if it didn't take 5 days of collecting to buy a faction item. A good idea would be some very expensive businesses (like say B$1.5 million just to open, with extremely expensive upgrades) -- something that would offer you a choice of say 15 to 25 of the high-end faction items vs. the same cost in upgrades for a very high-end business as a long-term investment that will let earn back the cost long-term and eventually buy more faction items. That would give people a choice depending on their play style.

  11. HA HA YOU FUCKERS LAUGHED AT US MOGULS FOR MONTHS FOR BEING THE SHITTIEST CLASS...
    NOW WE TRULY BENEFIT THE MOST FOR BEING A MOGUL FOR ONCE with the faction store...SHIT! fuck all u maniacs and fighters!

    ReplyDelete
  12. now that they've changed things such that you can only receive that currency when the defender is in that city, getting baht will probably always be difficult, as all you have to do is make sure you're not in bangkok when you are not actively playing.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I just make sure that I'm in bangkok to collect money from attackers ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  14. @anon - you can master both 5A and 5B - you do not need to pick.

    @anon talking about moguls - what? not sure if you are serious or not.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What an idot 4 posts up!!
    Moguls are even worse off now as they took away the 10% in NY! Maniac is still far above mogul!

  16. You mean you actually make money from fighting? O.o? How is that possible?

    I suppose if one where to make money fighting, they would have to have a lot of Atk, Def, and Stamina.

    I've been wanting to win more fights lately, so I increased my Atk to 265 and my Def to 125. Then I collected and bought a good amount of HEL.

    Even being lvl 900+ and having nearly 200 Mafia, I still can't win fights with anyone win money on them. :(

    What am I doing wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Don'T have a large enough mafia. Bring it up to 501 Anonymous :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. @ second anon above: for a player lvl 900+ is atk 265 and def 125 very low to fight.

    I'm lvl 600 and attack 850 and def 900 and I still lose fights, 80% win or so.

    But best thing is to have a maximum mafia of 501 and fight people with lower mafia size.

    Or the easiest way to collect bath money is to attack your energy-account or vice-versa to make money. ( if you have a other account offcourse).

  20. mafia wars guide :if i hav 500 tnts/armored state cars and i want to send them all to another acount ,is there a faster way to do that other than clicking the send gift button on wishlist

    ReplyDelete
  21. not at the moment. it is planed, that you can gift a hole stock with one click, but at the moment, there is no other way...

    ReplyDelete
  22. best way to send 500 tnts adn armored state cars is

    wishlist:

    mutt, tnt, asc

    and click the gift all button like crazy. In 5 minutes (lag) you should be done.

    And note that mutts can't be send with gift all..., they just are needed to get the gift all button.

  23. weird bug -working on 5a - just finished level 1 and asked mafia to help with 5b and noticed its starting me on level 3......good news - saved alot of energy; bad news I need 500,000 baht to buy what I need; anyone else?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I finished moscow awhile ago and did the pakhan get help job today. When it was done, I received another Drakon, which is nice. Also, I asked for help with a Bangkok job and when it was completed, I received the Bangkok achievement for completing 5a or 5b even though it is not unlocked yet for me. Anyone else had this happen? Not a bad thing but must be a glitch.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @ anon above

    It happened to me too.....now I have 2 Drakon :D

    also in Bangkok 5b , I started from Mastery Level 3....which is good :D....even the price of the items needed is very expensive (since I started from Level 3 requirement level) but it sure save me a lot of energy and consumables :p

    ReplyDelete
  32. Have I been sleeping? But it seems that Cheng-Wei X94 Machine Gun from Triad faction store is best defense weapon (beating the cleaver) at 25/45. Was it always this? Or have it been upgraded?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Someone told me that sending mystery gift while you are in Bangkok will give a better gift. And never send from NY as the item is "unusable". Is that right?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I can't help but notice that the "Armored War Elephant" appears to be the African elephant Loxodonta africana, rather than the Asian elephant Elephas maximus. Maybe they should have saved it for Mafia Wars Johannesburg.
