Winter 2015: Crafting

As usual with the last events, EA added crafting in this one too. A good selection of buildings and decorations is available in the first two acts. Let’s find out what’s in store for us in the Things Unnecessary right after the jump.

After starting The White Elephant in the Room Pt. 1, you can build Things Unnecessary, the building that enables the Crafting side of the event. By tapping on Merrymakers, completing challenges and dropping and opening presents, you can get crafting materials, Bows and Baubles, to craft the items.

  1. i crafted a prize early and now the daily challenge has has asked me to craft the same prize, but i can not as only allows 1 in the town.. however the daily challenge has not recognised that i already have this item… How do i complete this challenge if i can not craft another?


    1. we need to wait for ea to fix this with a patch


      1. Any word on the patch? Lot of players can’t complete weekly challenge.


  2. Looks like a sad un merrry Christmas for those of us that saved crafting materials till the end LIKE WE USUSALY DO IN ALL PAST EVENTS so we can choose from the three acts which prizes we would like to craft ( minus the required prizes we must craft for quests). Thanks EA you cheap scrooges. I fully expect EA to ask players to PAY in donuts for the items they could have crafted in act . A LITTLE WARNING WOULD BE NICE you cheap ***. Merry Christmas ho ho ho BAH HUMBUG from EA.


    1. Just a reminder: Topix is not EA, Topix is in no way, shape or form connected or associated with EA, Topix does not represent EA nor does Topix have any communication what so ever with EA, Topix has no influence over what EA chooses to do or not, but thank you for your input.


  3. Do the prizes stay from act 1 when act 2 starts?


    1. probably you can then buy them with donuts


      1. I was hoping it would be like the Halloween event where they only added things.


        1. that’s probably how it’ll work

    Hmmmmmmmmmm – the items that need to be crafted with BOWS seem to be rather monumental tasks – considering we have to rely on gift drops from friends and leaving gifts – when we all only have 5 per day. On top of that – the “randomness” of NAUGHTY vs NICE.


  5. Will Act 1 prizes still be available when Act 2 hits?
    Thanks 🙂


  6. Are there no additional things to craft in act 3?


    1. apparently not but probably they’ll be added later. act 3 is not finalized yet. lots of stuff not complete yet


      1. Do we know if crafting will be available for Act 3 yet? I have a bunch of craft able currency and want to know if I should hold onto it or use it up?


        1. they won’t. says so in the crafting screen too


        2. I have the same question! I wish someone had an answer. I’ve been searching Google, but so far all I’ve found is a lot of speculation, nothing for sure. Everyone seems to think that, since Act 3 is about babies and past the holidays, there will either be no crafting at all OR, if there is crafting, it will use a different currency.
          Anyone know the answer?
