X-Men First Class Loot Drop Event


The newest tie-in for Mafia Wars is with X-Men First Class, the latest installment of the X-Men series due in theatres June 3rd.  Click "Play Now" and it gets you this:


As you can see, 4 items drop from jobs and 3 items drop from fights.  The stats aren't the greatest on any of the 7 collectable items, but the Mastery item is great and there are 4 levels to mastery.








Once you collect one of each of them items, you can collect the Mastery item, Magneto's Helmet.



Don't forget to collect on this item for the 4 levels of mastery.  There is a limit of 10 per item to be store in your inventory, so once you are maxed out on mastery, gift them to your friends or trade them.

Bronze Mastery - 70 attack/110 defense
Silver Mastery - 75/120
Gold Mastery - 80/130
Ruby Mastery - 85/140

There are also 2 boosts to help you with looting items:


Supposedly helps you get triple the items, but no indication during gameplay that a boost is active.  I did lower energy jobs in NyC and did my fighting in Brazil and I completed a collection after 19 jobs and 36 fights.  Not too bad, but I suspect the drop rates will be adjusted.

A nice little tool they attached to this event is in your Mission Bar on the right side.  Look for the "X" logo and click on it.  Will give you your current inventory of the 7 items.


Good luck everybody and Go See X-Men: First Class!!

  1. The boost helps, the first I got gave me three items in jobs. The second and third, I'm not sure on this one, but I think it took six items away from me. I had over ten on all job loot and began fighting. Was down to 10 each.

    The one giving me extra was Frost Diamond Form, and later accepted Magnetos Magnetism and lost 3x items twice. So, stay away from the Magneto?

  2. Okay, perhaps I was wrong about Magnetos Magnetism. Haven't been accepting any boost and just lost 15 job items in seconds. Some big bug is going on.

  3. Hey Andy, if you have more than 10 of any one item, it will take them away from you. If you extend the mission bar tracker, you will notice that any items you have more than 10 of will be in yellow. If you run your cursor over it, there will be a countdown of when they will be cleared out. Starts at 30 minutes. If you are still over 10 after the 30 minutes, any extras you have will be taken away.

  4. Oh, I missed that part. Thanks for the info, was about to send a very angry letter to Zynga.

  5. Would you stop truncating your posts for those of us who use RSS Readers?

  6. Looks like they lifted the 4 tiers of mastery. Now if you just collect on one, you get the Ruby mastery Magneto's Helmet.

    Sorry about the truncating, but I don't have any option to truncate or not. The site seems to have it set as a default at some number of characters.

  7. In my point of view the x-men event is confusing, buggy a a complete waste of time. Worst MF event ever!!!

  8. I've burned a couple 1000 energy on jobs today (NY) and NOT a SINGLE job item has dropped for me yet. -- Pretty lame.

  9. What is the purpose of collecting 10 of each item when only the first 4 get you the grand prize reward? The collection items themselves have such terrible numbers, I wouldn't think too many people would actually need them. I did the fighting shortly after the event began, and collected my fight items in short order; however, I had to wait until my next level to do the job portion, and it took me nearly 4000 jobs to get 4 of each. Today I was going to max out my 10 each on job items; got one crest while doing 2500 jobs. Terrible event; extremely lame!!!!

  10. i agree, alot of time and jobs to get the rewards, but on the other hand...arent we gonna do jobs anyway?if they came easy the event would be super lame.they have tryed to make it cool by makin ya wait to get the big reward.get a large mafia and have some people send ya theyre extras..i have around 2000 mafia and completed it in the first day that way.now im returning the favor to others who need them in my mafia.

  11. I have one for all 7 items now, however i'm still stuck at bronze mastery. Any idea y?

  12. You need 2 of each to get silver, 3 of each for gold and 4 for ruby. i got ruby again today even though i only have 6 of the havok's chest which is the hardest item to find. i also don't know how others manage to share their extras through posts on the news feed. i can only send my extras through gifts

  13. can anyone tell how many of each items needed to get the grand prize. Because I have a few of each and I am still confused on how to collect the grand prize.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You need 4 of each, in total. Once you have at least one of all, you can collect the bronze mastery, after that the prize is automatically updated in your inventory. When you have 4 or more of each, you have ruby mastery. It may take a while to get your inventory updated, though.

  15. Is anyone still getting X-men drops? I haven't gotten one since last night.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, it's still going. I just barely finished getting 4 of everything. I wasted sooooo much energy on doing lower tier jobs though. Luckily, I was able to make the stamina count for this event, the Icing event that just ended and just toward achievements in general. Still, the drop rates for everything were ridiculous. Especially when during the fights, I got one item way disproportionately to the other two. Oh well, glad to be done with it and I like the helmet.

  17. I've got 3K energy, and I only have 4 total of the job items...kinda sucks...drop rates are skewed.

  18. have wasted about 2100 stamina and not a single loot drop from fights....this is ridiculous
