Halloween 2013 Special Run-through: A Walkthrough Within Walkthroughs. How To Manage Your Tasks.

Hi guys

After I laid out the quests for homer in a message, an idea was put forth by Kamanova. So thank you for the input. Kamanova’s idea was, because of all the walkthroughs going on at once during the Halloween event, to make a “walkthrough within a walkthrough”. So that is what this is. Please plan ahead as you still have 2 weeks to complete the main quest line and when comparing to other events, most likely you will be able to complete the others after the event.

Out of the walkthroughs, Homer seems to be the most consistent, appearing in 8 out of 12 quest lines. In saying this, I will place the quests in the best order for Homer. Here is a complete guide for the 2013 Halloween walkthroughs:

  1. Anybody experience this? I had reached my goo bonus or 34,400 while visiting friends’ towns. Upon trying to return to my town, the game froze and my device restarted. When the phone completed the reboot and opened the game, I didn’t get the bonus popup, and my bonus count was 0/2000. For a freemium player like me, who is stockpiling donuts right now, this is a big deal.

    1. Something similar happened to me as well. I collected the rest of the goo i needed for 2000 from neighbors, and I returned to my Springfield to collect the donuts. My goo counter reset to zero, but I didn’t get a chance at bonus donuts! I was peeved.

      1. I ended up e-mailing EA. They told me it’s a known issue, and they credited my account with five donuts. You should do the same.

        Ever since the Level 36 update, the game has been incredibly laggy and prone to freezing. I would imagine a fix will be coming eventually.

  3. What I have yet to see in most comments including posts on why Homer is the most used character in these holiday events and so forth is because of this reason: For almost every holiday event or other such expansion you have to realize that E.A. allows players at very low levels to partake in the fun. So how do you allow players to interact with an event when they haven’t hit max level? You do the quest-lines with the original starting characters that players receive within the first 6 to 10 levels, that’s how. Applying quest-lines with characters received at higher levels means that not everyone will be able to participate in the event. It HAS to be with the very first characters involved in the game. The only way around this in my opinion is by having quest bubbles from other characters regardless of whether you acquired them or not. The down side to this method is that the true character is not actually completing the quest. It sucks that most of these events have much to do with the first 5 characters but it is in my eyes, the only way to make sure everyone gets involved regardless of level. Hope that helps some of you with the frustration.

    1. Thats true and i think they could have alternative quest lines based on your level. They went all the way up to the hospital this time but maybe they could have progressed the story line further up to Patty and Selma at the end. There is no prizes for completing the main quest line so i think its something that EA could look into. Also if you look at THOH episodes, they always tend to base it on the same characters but an extended walkthrough to allow the latest characters would give initiative for people to keep up to date with the current level.

    Great post as usual. Not sure if you’ve covered this, but I thought people would like to know.
    I was about 30 Goo away from my 2000 Gift box target when I went off to my daily friends visit / Goo harvest. I collected around 300, thinking 30 would go to this box then put 270 to the next – not the case. The Goo were added on to my total, but the Gift box counter reset to zero. Same thing happened with gremlins. So be warned! If you’re collecting goo – go back to your Springfield when you reach the 2000 total – collect the gift box – then go back, and don’t leave too many gremlins if you’re near 2000 either.

    1. No worries. It was supposed to be finished a while back but I got very busy with my real world job.😔 hopefully it will help those just starting. It’s purely speculating but there’s a possibility that all of the quest lines could extend but better to get them done now to be safe. I logged into my second account which hadn’t finished the 4th of July event and I was able to do the last 2 quests and claim the bell which is why I say this.
