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!!
