Las Vegas - Whack the Rat Jimmy Vegas Event

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!

  2. I just completed my daily checklist. I got a random mystery bag item (war paint) instead of a reward point. Talk about a nerf....

  3. Hah I got a random Mystery Bag item too, but it was a reward point so whatever.

  4. Got the Cherry and the Triple Bar with only 10 fights or so in NYC. Much better drop rate than the last Las Vegas event. *feels bitter still*

  6. Fighting seems fixed to an extent, my list tends to have people to fight on it now, instead of before where it would have mostly grayed out people after one hit.

    Seems like a decent number of double drops too :)

  7. out of $B for a while. would have finished much quicker if they gave us more money :D

    ReplyDelete
  8. The wheelman and mastermind bonuses are WAY down. Anyone else noticing this too?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I've been seeing people write HEL a lot. What is that?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Agree that $B is limiting my ability to finish bangkok content. But maybe 2x loot / 2x mastery is to help players who started later and are still stuck in NY/Cuba/Moscow.

  14. Does anyone else experience that after 100 or so stamina of fighting, MW reboots to a previous saved spot? I had to redo all the jobs, lost all my loot I had accrued, and lost the special drop items.

  34. my mastermind bonus was working really well the other day, now today my wheelman bonus was working greatly, so well in fact i was able to level up about 5 times in a row, can't remember the last time i was able to do that, definitely in the sub 1000 category, maybe its zynga actually trying to help energy accounts finish bangkok by letting us level and keep earning baht ha ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  35. Seems like you are more likely to get an item for the collection from fights, rather then from random jobs...i have cherry and triple bars but none from jobs...wth

  40. did Zynga change energy packs since yesterday? I can't send them automatically to my entire mafia, and it looks like you have to accept them through facebook requests. WTF

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've done the 5-minute job 51 times so far... the only bonus was 13 Experience. No Jacket, no collection item. That 20% is a joke!
