Long time no post! Figured I should get around to posting some information up on Episode 6 of Mafia Was Las Vegas.
Here is the new job tier:
Each tier this time around is actually independent. You can get to the boss through either the Social, Fighting, or Energy tiers. However, you still have to mastery each job type to move on to the next level of mastery.
Aside from the job mastery rewards, I found the following items while leveling up in this tier:
Gila Monster: 36 attack, 48 defense (animal)
P0lice Riot Helmet: 30 attack, 44 defense (armor)
Rangefinder Rifle: 37 attack, 54 defense (weapon)
Performance Sports Car: 47 attack, 38 defense (vehicle)
Goldsmobile: 40 attack, 55 defense (vehicle) - actually good
Diamondback: 56 attack, 48 defense (animal) - actually good
Reinhardt and Otto: 57 attack, 36 defense (armor) - actually good
The bosses of District 6 are the Hill Brothers. They start out with quite a bit of HP (8,000 in bronze, 16,000 in silver) and it only scales up from there. Here are the rewards:
Bronze Level of Mastery: 96 attack, 119 defense
Silver: 117 attack, 138 defense
Gold: 137 attack, 155 defense
Ruby: 160 attack, 175 defense
Killing them will be the tougher part, given their massive HP total. I was able to kill them pretty easy by spending a few Godfather points and this strategy:
- Attack the Hill Brothers
- Attack until you die. You will get 2 attacks off at a minimum, one for each of your henchman.
- Go to the marketplace and purchase a Health refill. These only cost 1 Reward Point now.
- Attack the Hill Brothers again until you lose again.
- Get another health refill at the marketplace (there is no cool down to this)
...repeat until they are dead.
I was able to beat each level of mastery while spending a handful of reward points. This was a lot less frustrating than trying to collect a million stun guns over and over again.
It's not that bad at all doing it this way and you can earn all of the points you will need simply by playing your free spins each day.
And yes, I know I have not posted in a long time. I think the time has come for me to move on to other games and other projects.
My decision to stop updating this page is not about money. This blog was never about making money and was always something I did for fun. The guide I wrote did make a little bit of money (thanks to everyone who bought it), but really writing a 200 page e-book and throwing up 300+ posts on this site in the past year certainly involved much more time than whatever I made back.
The moment the game stopped being fun for me was the moment I stopped making updates. Like anyone, I only have a so much free time in the day to dedicate to gaming and I am currently digging Starcraft 2 and the upcoming FF14 and am looking to shift my attention elsewhere.
At any rate, it's been a good ride, and I want to thank all the dedicated readers who have been coming back day after day for the past several months or even year(s).
If Mafia Wars 2 ever comes out, you know where to find me! I'll be right here.
P.S.: There have been several people contacting me about wanting to keep this site up. There may continue to be updates if that is the case, so stay tuned as this site may not be dead after all!
