Special edition: elementals unleashed

As many of us expected, the newest event arrived this evening, with imps and elementals and various other creatures. I also suspect this event inspired the free mojo on the harvest orb because you should be prepared to spend a lot on this quest, especially when you’re down to the crunch next week.

This time the quest is worth it. The creatures and buildings are gorgeous.

But the rewards are worth it. Bothe levels of the challenge deliver the two highest paying buildings so far, and the artists did a hell of a job with these because both will look good wherever you put them (unlike the flutterflies’ temples which I removed as soon as I got the numbers).

The obelisk delivers 13140cp over 32 hours (411hcp) and the Obelisk delivers 15930 (498chp).

The creatures are kind of cool too, especially the flaming elementals. ngmoco:) also seems to have worked out a lot of bugs because I have experienced no crashes. Here’s how the event works:

The are nine creatures, includinng

  • Mud Imp
  • Fire imp
  • Water Imp
  • Earth Elemental
  • Fire Elemental
  • Water Elemental
  • Wind Elemental
  • Lightning Elemental
  • Composite Elemental

In the first round you need to catch one of each, but the second round is a lot tougher. You will need to catch three of each imp, and two of the mid-level elementals. (That’s 180 mojo if you use the guaranteed catch on each one.)

You will need two different spells to summon imps and elementals. The imp call takes an hour and the elemental spell takes four. You can speed them both up with mojo. Each spell calls one creature. You will receive more from other players.

The obelisk is the easiest to catch and still offers a better payoff than any building, allowing even players who finish one level to get a solid reward.

Since you have all week, you may want to try to catch the earth, fire and water elements for free, but catching the top three elementals will be tough. With enough mojo you can catch them all in a couple of hours.

The forge and composite elemental are pretty cool, and the forge pays off just under 500cp hourly. It doesn’t get much better.

If you’re just in it for the return, three thunderbirds will cost just as much mojo and you will get a higher return because you’re turning over three shops instead of one.

Good luck.

    Well, at least We Rule isn’t crashing every time I attempt to catch an elemental or when I try to share what ever I caught. Seems they got the message that no one will want to play if the game keeps crashing.

    I would be interesting to see how far log in activity for We Rule dropped during the butterfly event and how far it’s come back up now that it’s over and the crashing appears to be fixed.

    I still found one crash bug. When I went to catch the composite elemental with the magic rod with the mojo use confirmation turned on, every time I confirmed the use of mojo the game immediately crashed. However, when I turned the mojo confirmation off, it worked fine. This was, however, the first time I used the magic rod so it might do it for them all. Finally, I am playing on an iPhone 4.

    There giving the grand forge to the top 100…… That clearly screams we want your money.

    I was lucky enough to go through the obelisk and forge pretty quickly with very little mojo.
    Now I wonder if it’s really worth staying in the top 100 for the grand forge or if it’s really a mojo taker as Anonymous mentions?

    I’m really liking this event and not spending much mojo. It’d be nice to come away with the rewards, but if I don’t, the game itself is kinda fun. I’m also wondering about the new gift cart coming out. Any word other than the official ngmoco info? I’m hoping for substantial changes, and not just a revision of the gifts.

    Happy playing everyone.
