The Raven Returns FAQ

Share:

The Raven is the most elusive character of Mafia Wars and was introduced on June 14, 2011 [1]. Since his launch we have seen him nerfed or plucked out of the game so many times it makes your head spin.  The last time we saw him was when the Family Boss Fight feature was introduced on August 25, 2011 [1]. The Raven was out and Jeff The Knife was in. The “new and improved” Raven is very similar to The “old” Raven but there are some differences. Customer Support posted a FAQ about The Raven and the format is exactly the same but The Raven’s health, consumables and ammo items are different. Stay tuned for more information on Ammo drop rates and combos.
faq1
One question Customer Support did not answer is what in the hell are we supposed to do with our old Sniper Shots. Many were in the process of saving them for the return (at the time nobody knew he would be gone for more than a year). Some used reward points and they are still for sale in the Marketplace! I own 19 of them and would like a refund.
faq3
faq2
The new Sniper Shot is the Armagrenade. At least Zynga didn’t adjust for inflation and charge more for them. I imagine the drop rates will be designed to ensure you don’t get enough in an 8 hour period.
faq6
faq7
The reward for taking out The Raven also looks the same but the stats are much better. If they changed the consumables, they could have have done more with the reward. You can’t label the same old plain hoodie “Xtreme” without tricking it out a little! I guess it’s the stats that count.

    3. Yellow Combo is: Rain of Pain/Rain of Pain/Face Chop/Face Chop. Use 45 to 50 of the Yellow Combo & you Kill the Raven. You Don't required Grenades or the Red Combo at all. Clive

  4. Well I got the Raven a third down and nothing is dropping from fights or jobs now. With four hours left, he's going to get away.

  5. The drop rates are horrendous, I have got all my ices for the day and continued fighting, so far 2 that's right only 2! Armagrendades have dropped. I'm just going to act like Raven never came back out to play.

    1. I'm w/ You exact same results. I don't even know the yellow or red combos

    2. Wasn't it the same as last time... just wait for him to come and only fight him when you have enough of all the consumables. -Dioxin-

  6. Zynga bullshit. You can't use assasinanator for sit or nothing will drop. You have to click on the fight page over and over again and nothing fucking drops.. Fuck this.

    1. If you check the Bosses Tab along the top, it will show active in there if you use AaN and miss the pop-up or appearance on the fight screen

      Delete
    2. What I meant was the loot for fighting will not drop if you use AaN.

  12. yeah screw this BS, just another way to try and make us spend MONEY for loot that will soon be USELESS, and not worth the 2 skill points, even you nail the guy right off, 10x in a row, which SO is not happening.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sadley enough they made the consumables too hard on the 2 yes i said 2 that drop then there is 1 that has too be bought and 1 that drops when you are getting close to fighting him

    I just found the raven and at 60,000 hit points and barley any items PLUS i cannot just use stamina to attack only combos this seems like a complete waste of time unless i want to pay zynga for items - what a load

    ReplyDelete
  14. My Yellow Combo is: Rain of Pain/Rain of Pain/Face Chop/Face Chop. This may be the same for everyone - Last time around Yellow was the same for everyone but the Red Combo was a personalised one of the 6 combos. Clive

  21. I would like to spend some of the TRILLION'z of NY Cash I have,

  22. Caught me by surprise when the Raven showed up, first time was clumsy and he got away, took 28 reward points the second time trying to figure out the combo, says Raven is back today but not seen him yet, I thought he was suppose to show every 3 days.. i finally got the combo figured out, want to get him, like they know i am ready so they are just not going to cough him up.. what is with the mafia bosses on the fight page, am i suppose to kill them to get the Raven. They are too strong, I already tanked out icing 3 of them, still not seen Raven.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I was wondering the same thing about the mafia bosses on the fight page. WTF are they for? Will icing them bring the Raven? They are TOO strong.
