Valentine's Day Massacre Collection; Strategy

As the final piece of the Valentine's Day event, players have the opportunity to collect a brand new collection: the Valentine's Day Massacre Collection.


There are 7 pieces in the collection, but there are specific locations for each piece! The Heart Tattoo can only be received from doing the 5 minute version of the Valentine's Day limited time job. The Shoot the Moon, Stolen Heart, and Heart Locket pieces are found randomly when doing any job. The Box of Chocolates and Love Bear are found randomly when fighting. The Valentine is a free gift from fellow players.

After vaulting the collection, you will receive a Cupid's Arrow (weapon; 37 attack, 27 defense).


Items in the collection are giftable and you can not re-vault this collection for an extra bonus.

I really like the idea of this limited time collection - it is a shame the effort does not match the reward though!

  8. I spent 287 in mugging and got nothing. Does it matter which job you do? Ones with the loot or any of them? thanks

  9. To get this heart tatoo, you have to do 100% of the job only with the 5min version or you can combine the jobs?

  10. Hello My Friends. I Know It Is OFF TOPIC, I Wanted To Contact With The Owner Of This Site, But Didn't Find Any Mail OR Something.
    I Have A Glitch In Episode 3. My Level Mastery Is 6 And I Completed The Episode, But I Didn't Get The Mastery Item. Anyone Has The Same Problem OR Knows How To Solve It?

  11. @zynga sucks - people have been complaining about this on the boards; contact support.

    @anon asking about where the job items drop - all random jobs, i got my 3 items doing the mugging job as well. It me several hundred jobs+ before i got my items.

    @anon asking about heart tattoo - it only drops from the 5 min version


    @anon asking about not getting loot from the 5 min job - you only have a 20% chance to get the rare item OR the collection piece (so more like 10% drop rate on each item).

    There is a 80% chance you will not get ANYTHING at all. The odds of something with an 80% chance of happening 15 times in a row = .8^15, which equals .035, or 3.5%. 3.5% of players will not get a single item for the first 15 times they do the job, so there is nothing unusual about this experience. 1.15% of players will see no drop for 20 attemps in a row.

    This is dumb that they would make the drop rate that low on a required item, because due to the sheer size of the player base, there are going to be a lot of unsatisfied customers. Simply by raising the drop rate to 30%, the odds of getting nothing over 20 of these jobs in a row would drop all the way down to .08%.

  12. thanks MW Guide. they have changed the mugging job to chase away thugs, i guess. mugging job is now found in the Associate Job level.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Same here, have been doing jobs, fighting, everything -have between 4-7 of the other drops, but no Shoot the Moon. And am really pissed that the bonus is crap.

  16. yd they make it so vday stuff is ungiftable

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yes, I find that the Valentine's collection is ungiftable!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don' tlike that the collection is ungiftable. I had 20+ bears while a friend had 10+ chocolates. I did note in the job finding ones... It seems that the "special" given out is on a "rotation". Ie. for 5 mins or so you will get the same gift over and over... then it shifts.

  19. It looks as if the collection is giftable IF the other person has the item in his/her wishlist. I can't gift through the normal process, but if the item is on the person's wishlist, I can send. Hope this helps!

  20. I'm a bit miffed that you can't revault. I have enough to do one revault. grrrr

    ReplyDelete
  21. waht the hell i have many of the collections but i can't revault......that is waste

    ReplyDelete
  22. I found that it is giftable, but you have to request it in your wishlist for someone to be able to send it to you.

    Not only does it have to be in your wish list, but you have to SEND (publish) your wishlist and the friend with the gift has to click the notification and send from the wishlist (hope my description makes sense). Took me forever to figure that out.
