The Mafia Wars Las Vegas limited time job, "Whack the Rat Jimmy Vegas", is now live in game. The standard format is being used: choose between a 5 minute, 8 hour, and 24 hour job, complete a collection, and get an achievement.
1. Master Jimmy Vegas event to 100%.
Pretty straight-forward - do the limited-time jobs! Here is the job list:
The 5 minute job will provide you a lot of mastery points if repeated regularly, but it will cost you the most energy. The 24 hour job has a low energy cost and pays a lot of EXP, but only provides 20% mastery. It is a good idea to do at least some 5 minute and 8 hour wjobs prior to switching over to the 24 hour job.
Each job can also drop loot pieces:
Hack Into Hotel Records - Padded Heavy Jacket (armor; 28 attack, 24 defense)
Bribe A Guard For Roof Access - Trio Berella (vehicle; 32 attack, 23 defense)
Position A Sniper - Field Rifle (weapon; 28 attack, 38 defense)
For mastering the job to 100%, you get Jimmy's 220 Sunset (vehicle; 48 attack, 23 defense)
2. Complete the Slots Collection
Just like with other similar events, the Slots Collection is spread between the limited time job, normal jobs, fighting, and gifting. Here is the item list and where they can be found:
Liberty Bell and Lucky 7: Jimmy Vegas Job
Plum and Lime: Normal Jobs (any)
Triple Bar and Cherry: Fights (any city)
Orange: Received as a free gift
The best way to get the Jimmy Vegas collection pieces is to do the 5-minute job. That way, you will earn on average 2-3 items per hour (you only earn an average of .06 items per hour with the 8-hour job and .04 items per hour with the 24-hour job! Don't rely on the slow jobs to get both of your collection pieces.
The Reward for vaulting the Slots Collection is the One-Armed Bandit, an armor with 28 attack and 50 defense.
3. "What happens in Vegas" Achievement
This automatically completes once you finish the previous two requirements.
Also, it looks like this weekend is another double mastery / double fighting loot weekend. Looks like they are really trying to speed players through content so everyone can get to Las Vegas. Unfortunately, I think most players are bottle-necked by $B rather than energy.
Oh, I got Las Vegas VIP Access, doesn't seem to do anything though.
Will update when it does!
