Job Mastery Rewards for Bangkok Episodes 3 and 4

I now have the job mastery items for both episodes 3 and 4 of Mafia Wars Bangkok available for you all to see:

For mastering Pirate (Episode 3), you will get the Harpoon Cannon (88 attack, 51 defense):


For mastering Commandant (Episode 4), you will get the Armored War Elephant (96 attack, 69 defense):


At this rate, it looks like the rewards for Episodes 5A and 5B will be a weapon and body armor piece with 100+ defense on each. Will have more information soon.

----

Other relevant Mafia Wars Bangkok information:

- After completing the first level of mastery on Episode 4, players will have access to both Episodes 5A and 5B, assuming they have the faction. Episode 5A requires Trusted with the Triads, and Episode 5B requires Trusted with the Yakuza. I can only see this being an issue if you paid no attention to faction in previous episodes and sided with one side the entire time, as you can rack up quite a bit of faction will earning enough $B to beat the earlier tiers. It looks like Episode 5B will be slightly more expensive in terms of consumable and $B needed to pass through. However, Episode 5B has no collection associated with it currently.

- If you are having trouble with the Bangkok frames (can't scroll around or click things), do this: Run Firefox as your browser, simply right click on the Mafia Wars background, scroll down to "This Frame" and then click on "show this frame only". That will load the Mafia Wars game in its own window.

- The Mafia Wars Toolbar appears to be issuing mini-energy packs once again. I just got a 25% boost.




- It appears that all of that Bangkok loot that was available in fighting a week or two back is all of the current new loot in game. There are no "new" items then with the release of Bangkok that you can collect large numbers of. I am a bit surprised by this as it makes the only clear upgrade over Moscow loot to be the two armor pieces purchasable in the faction store, and the cost of these items is so high it does not seem if these will be easily collectible in large quantities.


Up-and-coming Updates:

I will post the rest of the Yakuza vs Triad info, loot lists, job mastery rewards, and any other pertinent information that I may have missed. If you have any other requests for Bangkok information, feel free to ask in the comments section.

  1. Does it look like it's possible to completely master both 5A and 5B? In that mastering one does not lock out the other?

    A table about which episode requires how many equipments would be nice.

  11. Is there a full job loot availability list yet for BK?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Subtle wording difference on opening 5A & 5B: like the others, they open upon reaching the Finale of the previous stage, not upon the finish.

  13. Someone upstream asked, can you sell all of your purchased equipment before starting a new episode.

    Yes for episodes 1 and 2... but you need to keep enough equipment in episode 3 to run the "Hijack a Boat Load of Electronics" job to get Satelite Phones which are also used in Episode 4 and perhaps later.

    Fortunately, that job is fairly low on equipment requirements, so you should be able to sell most of your Episode 3 loot once you have completed it.

  16. I'm pretty sure you get random boost when you use the toolbar, I got 200 energy 200 stamina and 25% energy or stamina boosts at different times

    ReplyDelete
  17. Please answer quickly: Are pirates only needed in the "Pirate" episode? I've finished the episode and I am wondering if I should trade all my extra pirates...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks for the info everyone.

    Zach - You need pirates for episode 3, 4, 5a and 5b

    Anon - yeah it seems the toolbar has multiple options, but it appears that the 25% energy boost is back, where before it was definitely gone.

    Anon - the ronin armor / typhoon cleavers are OK, still remember though if you have 70,000 attack its only like a .5% upgrade or something really low lol over normal pieces

    Mark J - I agree, you can sell all your old equipment save what you need for satellite phones


    Will have more info up later today.

  22. Atleast at one point, the "Best Offense" and "Best Defense" items you had actually gave some kinda bonus.

  23. I want to collect as many Sat Phones with low Energy as I need - does anyone know how many Sat Phones are needed to complete Bangkok??

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It depends on which faction you take for every episode but episode 5B is crazy, I guess @ least 500 (could be 1000).
