The only Rare Rewards you can trade/gift/Wish List from Operations - besides the Mission Collection items - are the Grim Reaper, Coyote, Z17 Micro, and Grip Gloves.
Ummm...December 21, 2010 called...it wants its outdated Mafia Wars trivia back!
Ummm...1997 called...it wants its sarcastic quip back!
These WERE the best four Attack or Defense items that you could gift or trade. (The Coyote is deemed less valuable than the others - its 64 Defense is the same as the Bighorn. The other three items above regularly trade for 5-6 Foo Fighters or Ballista Missile Lauchers *each*.)
Now we have a 5th item to trade and gift, though it's hard to come by.
First, you need to find the Secure Rudolph Operation. I haven't seen too many of these. It's a Medium-level Operation with 5 slots.
One of the two Rare Rewards in this Operation is the Jackal ATV (50A/67D) - a Vehicle that is nearly the statistical mirror of the Grim Reaper (67A/51D).
Going back to the new Mafia Wars Inventory page (which now has a search-by-name feature), you'll see that the Jackal ATV can be added to your Wish List and gifted. Therefore, it can be traded - and will hopefully fall from Red Mystery bags like the Reaper, Grip Gloves, Coyote, and Z17 did.
Other Operations have Rewards with stats in the 60s and 70s... but you can't Wish List/gift/trade these items. So hope for THIS result if you find the Secure Rudolph Operation:
Earlier this week, I
ranted and raved about this inconsistency posted a helpful list of which Operations have which Rewards - and whether you can trade them or not.
completely useless items from Italy can now be gifted and traded. But the ability to put the Jackal ATV on your Wish List is a major advance.
So when it comes to finding the Secure Rudolph Operation and this new item, happy
hunting! (WOW that was a poor choice of words in a post about every child's favorite reindeer!) holidays!
