Superheroes Event: The Crafting Guide (WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS!!)

Hello fellow tappers,

Today we’re going to analyze a returning aspect of this event: crafting!
TSTO_Superheroes_Splash_Screen
Update: There is a store update, bringing it up to version 4.13.2, with no change ingame. Apparently just bug fixing in the app itself.

After starting the questline The Collector Pt. 3, you can now start crafting items for Zenith City.
CG

In The Collector Pt. 3 you’ll need to craft the Botanical Garden.

In Zenith City Times you’ll need to craft the Zenith City Times, while in Zenith City you’ll need to craft 1 of each other Zenith Buildings.
CI

Only the Botanical Garden and Zenith City Times can be crafted once, due to them being unique. All the other items can be crafted more then once.

To craft them you’ll need Crafting Materials.

    The 100% Handcuffs for defeating felons you only get, when you complete defeat the felon right?
    Because a few minutes ago, 3 felons were “ready” and lost a heart (only 1 died) and I only got 1 handcuff not 3.
    From the list above I thought I get a handcuff every time a felon loses a heart.

    1. yes only if you defeat the felon

        1. I caught criminals in every single one of my friends town (94 towns) and didn’t collect a single lock pick. Based on that, I’m assuming lock picks can only be collected in your own town. Just FYI πŸ™‚

  14. My burglars weren’t giving me any crafting stuff. I lost patience and bought everything with donuts. Now that the deed is done I kinda wish I hadn’t been so impulsive. Next I’ll be complaining that I unlocked most of the content too early.

  15. I have to say that it is pretty cool that they made the collector have stuff to give as well.

    Still wondering what the tier 4 prizes are.
