Brazil Guide Trials

Wanted to post this little spreadsheet guide I have been working on.  Will be doing them for all job tiers in all cities at some point, but while I'm finishing them, I'm wondering what everyone thinks.  If you have any advice on additions or subtractions, please let me know.  Just basic information for each job and each tier overall.  I will wait a day or two to post the rest of Brazil after I see what kind of feedback I get on this one.  Thanks everybody!!

Mini Energy Packs

So, I just noticed this new "Mini Energy Pack" feature. I personally am a fan of this. Before I could get 2 extra levels a day through energy packs (only 1 extra level in Brazil because of energy:experience ratio). But with 6 Mini Energy Packs, you should be able to get up to 6 extra levels a day, which will make clearing Brazil much easier, but apparently this is only for a "limited time" so I would take advantage of this now and clear Brazil quickly.

Take Back the Street Mission Walkthrough

Here is the newest mission from Mafia Wars.  Once again, it is 6 parts and does require some time or some reward points.  It is a timed mission, so make sure you check the timer and get it done in time as there are some pretty good rewards!  Keep in mind that your experience earned from each is different due to your level.

Part 1:  Origin Story

Not too hard, but you need to select members from your mafia to help on this one as well.  If you time it right with the build and have a big mafia, this part shouldn't take too long.

Part 2:  R.E.S.P.E.C.T

The boss in this part has 14,000 health.  Easy if you are a fighter, but anyone who isn't, I suggest you utilize the "Get Help" button.  This is the most time consuming because you need to declare a war twice and with the 16 hour counter between wars, you will have to wait a considerable amount of time before you complete this.

Part 3:  Greed Is Great

Same old stuff.  7 helps from your awesome mafia this time and the boss has 16,000 health.

Part 4:  Town Painted Red

This requires some timing on your part with the "Collect from your Poker Room" part of it.  What I usually do when a new mission comes out is not collect on any properties until you are done and always collect on just the specific one in the mission, not the "Collect All" button.  The 5 backpack help step in here is a wall-posting one, not a Facebook request based one, so it's a little easier.  Just direct a couple friends to your wall via chat.  The Embargo Net in this one should easily fit in your top 10 defense weapons.

Part 5:  Battle: Las Vegas

Another War Declare required, so if you are counting, that's a total of 32 hours before you can declare all 3 wars required for this mission.  The Boss in this part has 18,000 health.  Might want to stock up on your Stun Guns and Shivs before taking this one on.

Part 6:  Blood and Wine

Auto Boutique in Italy needs to be collected.  Robbing - not a problem.  The boss has 20,000 health, but for some reason, every time I hit him, it did 5x the damage as the rest of them, so maybe he is just easier.  Regardless, there is a "Get Help" button, so use it if necessary.  Tons of experience for a reward and the Hawkeye Classic which is a great weapon for attack and defense.  That's it!!  Congrats, you are done :)

Quick update on MWG

Hey everyone,

As many of you have noticed, there has not been any posts in awhile. Phil's Mafia Wars and paypal accounts were hacked. Someone traded off all his MW loot and racked up a bunch of charges on his paypal account. Since he didn't feel like starting over, he decided to throw in the towel on MW, at least to the best of my knowledge (feel free to chime in Phil if you happen to see this).

If anyone wants to take up the mantle, feel free to drop me an e-mail at mafiawarsguide _a t_ gmail dot com (naturally, replace the __a t__ and dot with an appropriate symbol). I offer a revenue share of advertising revenue, though it would not be much (75-100 a month-ish) with potential for more if you are able to restore the blog to its formal glory ;p.
