You get a random number of Godfather points from 1-5. While it's a small condolence to those that accidentally spent 35 points on items, at least it's something.

  1. My NY Boss level jobs seem to be paying out more. I'm done NY, but often expend extra energy points on the Make Arrangement for a Visiting Don job to build towards the higher money achievements. That job is suddenly paying 80.5 mil, not the old 57.5 mil. I don't have a money sock or anything else that would cause this. Anyone know?

  2. Hey, Anonymous....I just went and checked out the NY Boss jobs page. Looks like the job is now set to pay out $80.5M instead of $57.5M. It even says so next to the job requirements.

    I'm a Mogul so I don't know if this is a Mogul improvement or something that has been changed for all the player classes. But hey, every little bit helps towards earning that T for Trillion achievement!

  8. Has anyone noticed that the Limited Edition Loot Shipment is gone with this new Home page? Wars are still giving out Cue Balls but I wonder if that feature is going to just disappear.

  9. Can you please make a post about changes in gifting? Some of the collection pieces are no longer giftable, unless on the recipient's wishlist, while other are. They are from the same collections. Ex: I can give anyone a Diamond Trellis Egg, but Military Egg has to be on their wishlist. Same with all other collections it seems. It's not just me, same on my other account and I asked a few friends and they've confirmed. So what is the criteria for what gifts are to be expected as giftable and what aren't? Thank you for all you write!

  10. they've had a lot of trouble with gifting lately, so I'm not willing to bet that any change is permanent - more likely to be a bug.

  11. How to get Mesh Armor how to provide email i came across a pop up with my friends account but i dont see any pop up on my screen ... anyway i also dont mind :D just needed a collection :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. It seems everything is gonna rise to a stat of 50+ realised even with good weapon without skillpoint stat ur still rubbish

    ReplyDelete
  13. You can still gift all the collections, you just have to go to collections now and select which ones you want to gift. Then you go automatically to the giftscreen and you can select to who you want to send. ( It doesn't show the item but it is selected)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sorry if I'm asking this question in the wrong place but is it beneficial at all to waste GF points on any of these specialty items? Just doesn't seem like you get much for the amount of GF points.

    ReplyDelete
  15. nope it's not, 4 skill points is the best way to go generally.

    I changed the id on the first link to read 14. It gave me 3 more GF points.

    ReplyDelete
  17. What do you wise people think: is it better to invest into the Bangkok businesses that produce Hyper Alert Sentry and Black Market Ammo or save that money and buy weapons from the faction store? How good are those boosts? Thanks in advance!

    (Sorry this is out of place, but I figured since it's the most recent post more people would read it.)

  24. What and how many inventory items are needed to complete Bangkok Dragon Head 5B? I want to get rid of other items for $$, but don't want to have to rebuy them.

  25. Last anon:
    For Episode 5b you will need 90 rifles, 75 uniforms and 75 junks. Seems to be the case for level 4 on all episodes: 90/75/75. I sold everything back except the following: Episode 5a 75/45/60 so I can still get the Tanto; and Episode 3 45/15/15 so i can still get the Satellite Phone. Everything else you can sell. Hope this helps

  26. Does ANYone know why cleavers aren't giftable?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Please answer. Has anyone who used to have rackets now have properties? I am still stuck with these rackets...

    ReplyDelete
  28. when do people with rackets get properties?

    ReplyDelete
  29. To anon 2 posts above - I still have rackets.

    -- Now that I've finished all of Bankgok, what should I be doing? Collecting specters? Cleavers? And just save up my money to buy up the stuff in the faction stores?

    In summary ... no what?

  30. My rackets give me ~200 truck drivers (1200 energys) per day. Love it.

  31. Any idea what is going on with the new featured item, Mr. Hot Sauce? They want 39 GF points for it and it is labeled as +100 Fight Defense Skill. Is that a permanent boost? I assume as much because of the ridiculous cost. Have they ever offered a skill item before?

  32. Mafia Wars Guide is a strategy and news blog dedicated to reporting relevant Mafia Wars articles on game changes and updates and how Face book players can use these to their advantage. Expansions such as Mafia Wars Bangkok are also tracked and reported dutifully.

  33. @ Generic Guy Number 4: Mr. Hot Sauce is only a temporary boost and surely not worth the 39 GF points.

  35. Someone asked: "What do you wise people think: is it better to invest into the Bangkok businesses that produce Hyper Alert Sentry and Black Market Ammo or save that money and buy weapons from the faction store? How good are those boosts? Thanks in advance!"

    The boosts are +32 attack boost for ammo, and +32 defense boost for sentry. Both can be upgraded to 10 output per 3 hours (and 50 capacity), but the last few upgrades on both are very expensive (the first upgrade is only B$60k, but the last upgrade is over B$4million).

    My opinion is that the sentry is worth upgrading the output completely, and that the ammo is not even worth opening for the $300k. I go through so many fights every day (several hundred) that my ammo would run out long before I'm done. These fights are how I afforded to fully upgrade the sentry BTW.

    Now, fully upgrading the sentry boost factory is not cheap. It's a total cost of B$20million (B$10million for output, and the same for capacity), but I'd recommend only 8 upgrades on capacity, saving yourself over B$6million at a drawback of only 10 capacity less (which is insubstantial if you collect often). I think the last two on output are worth it though. So the total cost comes to about B$14 million (for 10 sentries every 3 hours). With B$14 million, you could instead buy about 29 best-in-slot faction loot. Assuming you already have decent items, that only comes out to a few extra points in combat calculations. Compare that to (32*501) points for the sentry and it's not even close. The sentries are way better. And at 3.3/hour, you will have them around for a high percentage of your defenses.

    This same logic does not apply to ammo (at least for me), because there are so many more attacks than defense that the ammo will *not* be around for a high percentage of my attacks. So instead I've been buying the best-in-slot offensive faction loot.

    Finally, for a chart of exact numbers for each upgrade on the sentry factory: http://mafiawars.wikia.com/wiki/Yaa_Baa_Parlor

    ReplyDelete
  36. @Generic Guy Number 4: Mr. Hot Sauce is clearly labeled as a "Boost". All boosts are one-time things that happen as soon as the condition is met. So Mr. Hot Sauce will be for one +100 attack. Buying this would a complete waste of 39 GF points.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Your attack skill has two main uses. When you initiate an attack (whether through Fight, Rob, or attempting a Hit), your total attack value is compared to your defender's total defense value. Your attack value also has a minor impact on the amount of damage you cause whether attacking or defending.
