NOTE: Today in English class, we were satirizing (poking fun at) an exceptionally poor, amateur, senseless, etc. magazine article, so you will notice that I’ve carried some of the wittiness from that class into this post to poke fun at this “event.” Enjoy.
What is it with these impromptu events being released without any warning? I, personally, would like to have some form of warning before being hit with such an amazingly dull event.
And WHY is it released on Thursday? Why not wait a day, improve on it, then release it on Friday, when people actually have time to go on and play?
This event is so eventless, I’m not even going to use my normal Fantage event post format.
As always, there’s a limited item cart. Do the 3 “Special Items” costumes look familiar?
They should. In fact, I’d say you have short term memory loss if you didn’t recognize them, because this is the FOURTH (that’s right, FOURTH) time Fantage has used them. See the 2011-2013 All Fantage Items list if you don’t believe me: they were released in January 2012, February 2012, and December 2012, the only difference is the colors.
Apparently you can use these costumes at the Ice Rink, which is located at the Beach, as made VERY clear by this obnoxiously large sign, bobbing up and down.
Since I didn’t want to waste 6,000 stars on the costume just to tell you guys what would happen, I instead tried to observe other random people who were wearing the costume. It was pretty hard to find people who bought them, I guess most people are smart enough not to!
After seeing these people prance around with the costumes on the rink (thanks for being models, mhgoul and eryn6984, even though you didn’t even know I was taking pictures of you)…
…I’ve concluded that you can’t do anything special with the costumes, and they don’t give you prizes. I’ve also noticed that you can do the EXACT same thing with past ice skating costumes. This blue one was from December 2012 (thanks, random person randyp, for modeling)
In fact, if I’m not mistaken, you don’t even need to go to the rink to do all these dancing moves, you can do them anywhere on Fantage.
SO DON’T BUY THESE COSTUMES.
Instead, be creative and put together your own ice skating outfit, like I did!
Another slightly more useful part of this event are the 2 new, limited-time plants you can use in your farm. Click here if you haven’t read our farm information post.
Take advantage of this while it’s here, you might be able to reach the maximum Farm Medal level! These limited plants obviously produce more EXP in a shorter amount of time than the basic ones.
Some math/calculations, if you are interested: The peppermint produces 2 EXP per minute, and the freezia 8 EXP per minute. Yes, that does mean the freezia is a lot faster, but that also means you need more suns. If you are planning to be on your computer for several hours, then do the freezia. If you don’t want to stay on the computer, do the peppermint and come back in 2 hours to harvest.
