St. Patrick's Day Collection and Dublin Derby Event

The St. Patrick's Day event is now live! Here are the details:


Fix the Dublin Derby

There is a new limited time job, and like previous events, there is a 5 minute, 8 hour, and 24 hour option.


Each job has it's own item associated with it:

Blackmail the Judges: Vintage Binoculars (weapon; 14 attack, 23 defense). Thanks Juliano for the pic!



Switch the Jockey: Horse Training Whip (weapon; 24 attack, 13 defense)


Steal the Favored Horse: Horse Trailer (22 attack, 16 defense)


For mastering the job (getting 100% mastery), you will get the Winner's Wreath:



Much like Valentine's Day, there is a new collection, the St. Patrick's Day Collection. There are 7 total pieces:

Irish Flag (drops from featured job - simply keep performing the featured jobs until you get the flag)
Green Fireworks (drops from random jobs; any normal job can drop this)
Leprechaun (drops from random jobs; any normal job can drop this)
Green Bowler's Cap (drops from random jobs; any normal job can drop this)
Lucky Pint Glass (drops randomly from fights; any normal fight can drop this)
Pot of Gold (drops randomly from fights; any normal fight can drop this)
Bag Pipes (free gift from friends; can be sent on the free gifts page)


This time, all the limited time jobs drop the Irish Flag (not just the 5 minute job like with the Heart Tattoo). Since every limited time job can drop the Irish Flag, it is unlikely that it will be as valuable as the Heart Tattoo became, although there is a chance this item will be at least worth a high-end loot piece or two.

The reward for vaulting the collection is the Irish Wolfhound (weapon; 48 attack, 29 defense).

Lucky Shot Achievement

For vaulting the collection and mastering off the Dublin Derby limited time job, you can achieve the Lucky Shot achievement.




Find the Rare Dublin Stallion

This item has a very low % drop rate from the limited time job and can also be purchased for Godfather points. It is a horse (vehicle) with 26 attack and 51 defense.


Lucky's Pot o' Gold:



From the marketplace. I'm not really sure what the appeal here is - buying 7 items (and spending 100 reward points+) for a chance to win 100 reward points? That's like buying a raffle ticket for $5 for a chance to win $4.

I'm not sure what marketplace items count for the total. If you find out, feel free to leave a comment!

  1. I got 2 Irish flag and Dublin Stallion on a 5 min job., I done that job 10 times..

    ReplyDelete
  2. is the stallion stackable?

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'm thinking that maybe like 12 Stat Point purchases may count... or maybe even health refills at 2 GFP a shot. I think I may give it a shot, and see what happens. I have my print-screen ready ;)

    ReplyDelete
  4. do you know when it ends?

    ReplyDelete
  5. 20,000+ energy and not one item dropped from the new collection, anyone know what jobs it drops on?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Got 2 irish flags + 2 vintage binoculars from 5mins job...none of dublin stallion :(

    ReplyDelete

    well , if you spend 100+ points and win 100. so you loose ~20 but you have 7 rare items, so I guess you win not loose :PPPPPPPP

    ReplyDelete
  9. yes, but it is unclear if EVERYONE who gets all 7 win or just a random amount of people. And also, which items? it also seems to be random on that.

    From what I can gather: We don't know which items are the 7, so we need to buy a lot. Also, even if we get all of them we may not be the one to win.

    Seems like a way of getting us to spend crap loads of $$$ on GF Points.

    ReplyDelete
  10. yeah, if it was a sure-fire shot to get 100 RP back for buying 7 rare items, then this would only be a mild rip-off. but it looks like you have to buy 7 from a certain particular set that you don't even know, and even if you succeed in that you might not even get the 100 RP back, so this is a major rip-off.

    ReplyDelete
  11. all you need to do is buy 7 weapons and stuffs from the marketplace, right? any loot? if so, then i'm going to buy them during 1 hour sale offer,it's the best bargain. if i buy stat items like health refill (2GP) does it count? has anyone tried it? E.T.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Any timer reset glitches? :P

    ReplyDelete
  13. How do I get back to being able to doing the rest of the job???

    ReplyDelete
  14. It wont let me do the rest of stealing the horse job there is no way to get back to it as far as I can see.

    ReplyDelete
  15. i got that stallion dublin from the 5 minute job,
    Keep repeating it i need only 1 collection item and master the job :D

    ReplyDelete
  16. Health Refill for 2 GP points ? :O

    ReplyDelete
  17. for sure mystery crates do not count as the 7 items needed to buy in marketplace as I just tryed it.
    The collection is realy easy to get. I got it all in like 15 minutes. Spend more or less 30k energy to get all the items (got all x3-4 only the leeprechaunt took me a while). And drop from fights is realy high as wasting 150 stamina I got 5 pots of gold and 3 Lucky Pint Glasses.

    So more or less the st.patrick day achivement is not so hard. Just the marketplace feature is purelly a rip off and not worth the effort.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I wasn't able to get teh lucky pint glass untill I fought in Bangkok, then I ended up with 5 of those, where as I got the pot of golds in NY.. I did spend 270 stamina to get them... (I levelled up twice, so I didn't buy stamina or anything, just did enough jobs, helped enough people and fought alot to go up to get needed stamina to gain those two fight items. I have everything but the flag. I'm still trying to figure out what the featured job is.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The Featured job is the one on the mainpage.
    The 5min, 8hour and 24h one.
    But u get it after the time passed. So if you do the big one youll get it in 24hours

    ReplyDelete
  20. can find any in the jobs...I usually do the 1 energy job in NY, but that doesn't seem to work anymore. Has it worked for anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Me neither... i have spent over 10,000 energy so far.

    please could anyone gift any spares they may have?

    ReplyDelete
  22. The drop rate on Green Fireworks seems ridiculously low. I spent about 32k energy before I got one.

    ReplyDelete
  23. have spent over 8000 energy and only on job collection loot drop -- have spent 64 stamina and 2 pint glasses....not dropping at the job rate before for Valentines day

    ReplyDelete
  24. Some of the for sale items in the shop have a four leaf clover on them. Those could be them.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The items with the Four leaf Clover are the 7 items you need to get o'Rilley's pot of Gold.

    ReplyDelete
  26. @top anon. hey the top anon is right. i just noticed that in the marketplace. 7 items ie, 4 loot & 3 boost items had that four leaf clover on the top left corner of their respective box..

    ReplyDelete
  27. what about Fix the Dublin Derby? How it be completed?

    ReplyDelete
  28. ive noticed the comments up top about the lucky pot of gold and what yall need to buy, its the items with the little clover leaf right next to them. just go thru them and you will see it.... also does anyone know how to fix the dublin derby? how do u complete it???

    ReplyDelete
  29. does anybody know if the Dublin Stallion's are limited to one?

    ReplyDelete
  30. i really doubt it because you can buy multiple in the market but im not 100% sure yet.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is what you get from the Pot O Gold thing. Very disappointing..

    http://www.abload.de/image.php?img=blaf6pq.jpg

    This is just one of the rewards I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  32. what is the job to get the Irish Flag??

    ReplyDelete
  33. I got Dublin Stallion,5 Vintage Binoculars and 2 Irish Flags on 5 minute jobs....
    Horse Training Whip on 8 hour, and Horse Trailer on 24 hour job

    ReplyDelete
  34. i heard from an energy acc that manage to get 3Stallion, so should be stackable.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Man you guys are such noobs!

    ReplyDelete
  36. If you look through the items in the Marketplace,you'll see that some of the items have a shamrock next to them. I think (I'm not positive though) that these items are the ones that will count towards the pot 'o gold meter.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have done all three derby jobs...once each for the top two jobs, and about 35 times for the 5 minute job. Still no flag. There is no way the 5 minute jobs is 20%, out of the 35 times I have done it I have earned a total of 2 items.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes, you are right. The items with the shamrock on the top left corner are the ones to buy. They are distributed in the limited edition loot and the boosts.
    Although, the prize isn't very good.
    I only know about three possibilities:
    1: a Stuffed Crate
    2: buy one, get another free
    3: 100 reward points

    ReplyDelete
  39. FYI, I got the dublin stallion from a 5 min job on the first or second try. Have done it about 20 times in total and thats all I've gotten from it. There are 7 items in the market place w/ a clover on them. Total cost for the items is in the neighborhood of 150 gf points so not worth it unless guaranteed to get 100 back.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like a few others on here have done several thousand jobs without a single vault item drop. When compared to other special event drops this is abnormal. I think it is possible that some accounts are glitched and cannot get the job items. Very disappointing indeed :-( If anyone has any extras my FB is http://www.facebook.com/search/?q=timmy+o%27toole&init=quick#!/profile.php?id=100000019437566&ref=search&sid=100000019437566.1706479767..1

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have done at least 300+ fights with no collection piece drops.

    ReplyDelete
  42. this might be a bug, but me and another 2acounts that i know of, do not have any off/deff stats anymore, if you fight someone, youll always lose.
    anyone else with that problem?apparently none of your items are used!?

    ReplyDelete
  43. @ anom 10.03pm
    i have the same problem with u. anybody else?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Just noticed attack/defense is gone also... loot is there, probably just a bug...

    Only 7 items that will count to earn the "Steal Lucky's Pot of Gold" are items that have a clover in the upper right hand corner of the big marketplace slideshow. Pasted the help blurb below:

    Steal Lucky's Pot O'Gold

    Find the 7 mystery items needed to steal Lucky's Pot O'Gold. The necessary items will change daily and you can find them by following Lucky's trail of clovers.

    ReplyDelete
  45. My attack and defense is gone also. Maybe they in the progress of turning on robbing?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Finally got the Irish Flag...after doing the 5 min. job 57 times. The job drops don't seem to be very good anymore...the first two jobs I did after this all started dropped collection items, nothing since then though. I still need the cap!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I just asked for help with the Dragon Head job and received a pop-up that said "Continue to Mastery level 5." The page reset and displayed only chapter 1 -- incomplete -- and with exp/energy numbers commensurate with mastery level 1.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I got the continue to mastery level 5 message in Bangkok 5b too. I know I didn't benefit from any error letting me skip levels or anything like that. It took me back to the beginning of mastery level 2 (6 Chinese Army Assault Rifle required).

    ReplyDelete
  49. does anyone know how to fix the dublin derby???

    ReplyDelete
  50. I done the 1% job for 30+ times but did not get any Vintage Binoculars. wth...

    ReplyDelete
  51. 12:30, get all three items and get to 100% on the featured job

    ReplyDelete
  52. The past day I spent 25,000+ energy doing jobs in all cities without a single St Patricks job loot drop. I used my last energy up & went back in my collection page to see that I have 2 leprechauns, 3 firecrackers and 2 hats. They weren't there 5 minutes before, no one gifted them, and I didn't see them drop. Maybe Zynga realized some people were glitched and fixed it? Weird..

    ReplyDelete
  53. I fixed the dublin derby, you have to vault the Irish collection and master the st. Pat jobs,,,u dont have to do all 3 jobs just get to 100% job mastery u get a wreath

    ReplyDelete
  54. on above post u also have to have the dublin stallion

    ReplyDelete
  55. SO YOU ALL KNOW FOR SURE AFTER YOU READ THIS:

    pot o gold is aquired after you buy 7 itemswith a shamrock next to it (these items change!!!)

    after that the pot contains several prices (diff. for everyone) AND a CHANGE to win 100 RP (so you dont win them 100%)(guess more like 1%)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I got the dublin stallion from a 5 min job on the first try...then I realized I was very lucky!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Lose, not loose.
    Prize, not price.
    Chance, not change.

    And could you all please continue to post without reading first? I love reading the same stuff 5 or 6 times.

    ReplyDelete
  58. AHHAAHHAAA I love the Engrish invoweleved

    ReplyDelete
  59. http://www.facebook.com/ffdude
    Add me need all those items Horse Trailer Vintage Binoculars
    if possible the crew collections

    ReplyDelete
  60. I did the job once for 8hrs and gt dublin stallion. its nt rare at all.

    ReplyDelete
  61. it is rare.

    i had to do the 5 min job 40 times to get it

    ReplyDelete
  62. When I checked all the items for sale in the market place, there were 7 that had little shamrocks in the corner...
    I presume these are the ones to buy!
    Only worth it if you got the points & want extra skills I guess, when you only have a 'CHANCE' to win 100 RP!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. My Collection is Vaulted.. I got 5 Irish Flag

    ReplyDelete
  64. Spider, you're an idiot - this has already been said many times, douchebag

    ReplyDelete
  65. i got all the fight collection pieces with about 150 stamina, and all the job collection pieces with about 1600 energy. i've since then continued to do fights and jobs and have several of all the items now (about 5 to 10 of each).

    and i did the 5 minute featured job about 50 times and ended up with 6 irish flags and 4 dublin stallions.

    i know i'm not simply this lucky, so my guess is that they gave different drop rates to different accounts so they can gauge the effect that has on the way people play.

    ReplyDelete
  66. What do you get when you check off all the things on the list?

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm at 99% and still no stallion!!!!! mw are sick little puppy's!

    I'm pretty sure you'll just get 4 ticks on your home page. Nothing more

    ReplyDelete
  71. can the st pat's day collection be re-vaulted?

    ReplyDelete
  72. i dont think you can revault the st pats day collection. mine doesnt allow me to click the hound picture (to revault) but i have many duplicates.

    ReplyDelete
  73. The items you need to complete the collection of the 7 market place items have a clover in the right top corner.....

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'm looking for the leprechaun - anybody have a spare?

    ReplyDelete
  75. To the anon who asked "What do you get when you check off all the things on the list?" -- you get an achievement (and the +1 skill point like with any other acheivement).

    ReplyDelete
  76. i got the achievement without the stallion, and i also got the wreath. i also got the 1 skill point for getting the achievement.

    if people would actually read what it takes to earn an achievement from the game itself they would understand what's required to obtain said achievement.

    but reality sets in and i realize tons of children play the game and don't do anything that requires actual READING.

    i only came here to see what you get for getting all of the things checked on the front page, and i think the statement "i'm pretty sure you'll just get 4 ticks on your home page, nothing more" about sums it up.

    makes sense to research before blowing money on stuff that doesn't do anything.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hello! I have a question ... as I get the Irish flag?? featured say in job ... but what are the featured jobs???

    ReplyDelete
  78. I have now collected all of the St Patricks Day collection and also the Chinese New Year collection, but am unable to vault them - there's no button there at all.

    Any suggestions?
