Upon logging in today, I received this message:
So, it looks like we will be getting some sort of 4th of July event. Not too sure what it's about, we will have to see on Friday!
At any rate, as some of you have mentioned, job XP in Bangkok was buffed. Jobs now pay out a good bit of more XP:energy point - at level 4 in Chapter 7, most jobs pay over 2.0 XP per energy point. As pointed out by poster MariahJ:
Battle Your Way Through The Temple, 407 EXP at 192 energy cost, standing at 2.120 it is better than Settle a Beef Permanently.
Another great job is Silence A Shadow Kingdom Patrol, which pays 2.079 XP:Energy and drops the Chain Viper (46 attack animal).
These changes will definitely make completing the last level of Bangkok a lot easier, especially for energy accounts, and there will be some nice $B to get too this way.
Additionally, there are now some new New York items available on the purchase page: Serrated Knife, Sniper Rifle, Automatic Rifle, Tactical Rifle, Sports Car, Luxury Car, Armored Limo, Combat Truck.
All of these items are purchasable with normal NY dollars and are pretty cheap. Not quite sure what we will be using these for yet. I picked up 500 of each type just in case they come in handy.
