Richie’s Stash Crafting Event

Share:

Richie’s Stash is a new type of event with the same old concept of gathering (aka begging) items to craft other items. We gave you a preview 6 days ago [1]. There are 4 building and upgrade parts we need to collect in order to build 8 loot items. To fully master the event, we will need to build all 8 items (bronze) and upgrade them 2 times (silver and gold). There are no choices in this event. If you master it, you will get 9 loot items and that’s it. The event will be available for 10 days.

“Richie” is Richie Carone who is one of the Manhattan Bosses and had a small role in the Take Back The Street Limited Time Mission which was in March of last year.
The in game instructions can be found by clicking on the help mark.

 The 4 building parts are shown below. It should come as no surprise that in order to get them, you need to beg.

Each of the 8 loot items requires a unique combination of 2 of these items to craft. The Gold Level of each item is shown below. In order to get these, you will need to build the Bronze items and then upgrade them all to Silver and then to Gold.

Once all 8 items are crafted on the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, you will get a mastery item and it will improve in stats as you master each level.

To get the parts needed to build and upgrade the items, you need to ask for them by posting spam in your news feeds. You can make 4 specific part requests and 1 generic part request every 8 hours. Each request will yield 5 parts so you can earn 75 parts a day if you are online at the 8 hour reset. All timers reset at 12am PST so this means you will need to make a request at 12am, 8am and 4pm PST daily and you can’t be late. I doubt many players will get the maximum number of parts per day.  To ask for parts, click on the “Ask for Parts” button from the Home Page to generate the generic request. Go to the Build Page, scroll to the bottom, hover your mouse over each part image and then click on the ask button for each of the 4 items.

You also don’t get parts for helping your mafia members so some may find it’s difficult to get help. We should all run the Stream Scanner so everyone gets the help they need. These requests show up under the "FeedLimit" tab and it is the same one you use to get Arena Power Up Cards. Unlike the property requests, we aren't limited in how many players we can help. The new spam requests are shown below.

Of course you can purchase building parts for 2 reward points each.
items2
The number of parts to build each item are shown below. This is for the bronze level and silver levels. At this time I don’t know how many are required for Gold.
items1
When you get enough parts, you can build your items. To do so, hover your mouse over the item and if you are able to build, a “Build” button will appear. Just click on it.

You get a popup and can make more spam. I really hope people don’t do this as you don’t get anything but a redirect for clicking on it.
build2
You have to build evenly. Once an item is build, there will be a check mark but you can’t move to the next level until all 8 items are build. The Home Page banner will also track your progress with tick marks.

The following chart outlines how many parts you will need to master this event on each level. I will update it once I get the event or someone posts the next levels on our fan page. We will need to collect a total of  96 parts to master the Bronze Level, 144 parts to master the Silver Level and 240 for the Gold Level. To fully master the event, a total of 480 parts are needed. In theory, it would take 6.4 days to complete and we have a total of 10. It's still cutting it close but most active players should be able to do it. This is kind of like a Limited Time Property in disguise!

Thanks to Eike for helping with this post and for many of the screen shots and thanks to all who posted on our fan page. The event was on a slow roll and pulled for a bit. Thanks to Marc Lanni for the Gold Level image.

  1. To fully master the event, we will need to build all 8 items and upgrade them 2 times.

    you'll need to edit that to upgrade 3 times. "_"

    1. Building counts as one time (bronze), then you can upgrade themtwice (silver and gold). That's what I meant anyways. I could reword it.

      Delete
    2. It's impossible to upgrade 3 times. It only goes to gold.

  2. this is lame

    this is why i haven't built the last 14 limited time properties. a lot of the stuff they do is fun but these excessive begging exercises are for the birds.

  3. I don't know if I was to early to post my requests, but they all show up as Invalid/Expired when people try to help me.

  4. what part do we get from the generic part request?

    1. It's like the properties, it goes in the order you need them. You will get 5 parts.

  5. "You can make 4 specific part requests and 1 generic part request every 8 hours."

    I see no way to do this, there is only 1 ask button that I clicked and posted to my wall, there are no additional ask buttons. :(

    1. Try reading the post, the info is all there.

    2. On the banner for the event click the "Build Now" button to get the Ritchie's Stash popup. At the bottom hover your mouse over each of the individual parts and an ASK button appears.

      Delete
    3. The info is *not* all there. You do not specifically say to hover over the individual parts to make the ASK button appear.

      Delete
    4. Excuse me for assuming that ALL my readers could use a little deductive reasoning from looking at the image. I guess I need to start adding steps like "click enter" when they shouldn't be necessary at this point of the game.

      Delete
    5. The fact that it was spelled out in detail for the build option really makes me wonder why some people wouldn't have understood that it would be the same for the ask option. I should just start posting images with no explanations at all like some blogs out there. I never see any complaints and it would be so much faster for me.

      Delete
    6. I don't know what to say here. I saw that one of my friends had posted multiple part requests and came to this blog to find out how they did it. After reading it and re-reading it and puzzling over it I just didn't get it. Call me dumb if you want to, but that's what happened. ... And I wasn't complaining about it, just trying to help out others who were in the same boat.

    7. Sorry, I was ranting more so at the comments I didn't post because they had bad words and death threats then really to this one. I just get frustrated when I decide not to write every little thing out and then I get nothing but complaints. I spend too much time on this blog and I'm trying to simply it. All that brings me is complaints and makes me not want to do it anymore. Since I explained in detail how the build button worked, I decided that wasn't necessary for the ask button as it's the same thing. Now I've devoted more time for making that decision which was made to save time. This event came out right before I wanted to go to bed because I had to get up early but I stayed up to finish it and then get all this grief for it. Maybe if I charged people to have access to this site I would feel differently but I don't. Might be time to just call it quits. I'm starting not to like the game and the people in the community that devote all their time to calling me names and complaining is just too much.

    8. You do a fantastic job and have a brilliant, informative blog. Screw all the haters, don't let them get you down. I think you should charge to use your site. I would pay each month to access your site because over the years I have got some really good game tips and advice. Keep up the good work.

  6. In case anyone was wondering, since I just spent 5 minutes figuring this out, you have to hover over each of the individual parts to make the 'ASK' button appear.

    1. You would have saved time if you read the post as that is outlined in the content.

      Delete
    2. Actually, most of that time was spent carefully re-reading your post, which does not say you have to hover over the part's image to make the ASK button appear. Yes, it does say click it, but your picture shows an ASK button and I didn't have one to click!

      Delete
    3. So showing an image is not enough now and I need to spell that out too? Fine I reworded for those who have difficulties and can't figure out the obvious.

  7. Thank you Jen, for a lot of effort and good advice over this event. Too bad for Zynga that I don't have the time or Mafiosi to complete it, and won't spend RP on this.

    ReplyDelete
  8. ^_^ its cool thanks. grand work with it. its just like a limited time property. 8 per posting to feed, only way to complete is not to miss timers. and for the table on silver. they used RP's. im on gold now its. bronze 24 silver 36 and gold 47 all together

  9. Can you receive parts for this AND Mech My Day on the same day. (I tried to send for both Mech My Day and the current Robbing Spree... no luck)

    Really want that Bagpipper, but I'm almost done with Mech My and won't skip the end to start an event with so much begging/clicking involved. Thanks. - [MAD] WildThinginZuitSuit

    1. Mech My Day is done through the ZMC, this event is all feed requests. You can get some extra parts for Mech My Day via the feeds and the two will not interfere with each other.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the speedy response. :)

      Delete
  10. do we know if the extra parts carry over to next build should you continue to beg for all the parts till your finished with the event?
    trying to figure out if there is a best order to build ...assume there isnt an even number needed to finish each level
    thank you for all your hard work

    ReplyDelete
  11. We have to post every 8 hours and not be late. Well, I got the event an hour and a half late with no extra time put on the event timer, so wont I automatically be late with my postings? But it is not my fault they can't get the event out to everyone at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The begging in this game just hit an all time high. Jesus... how to keep up?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Will definitely be hard to master this event because Zynga doesn't think people have outside lives (ie: work) and thinks that all of our mafia friends actually help (which they do not).. looks like I need to start weeding out the free loaders.. thanks for the info Jen :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. we got 10 days with each 75 parts (if we always post on time) so 750 parts. we "only" need 480. so we can miss a bunch of postings

    ReplyDelete
  15. even with posting 2 times a day, and maxing on those, we should have 500 parts at the 10 day mark. this is good news for those only online twice a day for the game.


    (and MWLL, remember the humor in the call to the computer tech support when it came to the agent saying: see the black cord with metal prongs that look like the end of a lamp cord? are they inserted into the wall receptacle?; and the caller: oooh, i didn't know i had to plug it in, i thought this desktop computer was wireless....... Sometimes you wonder how people survive out there.)

  16. Since I can't play right now due to the maintenance I'll chime in regarding the negative remarks both above and on previous blogs. #1 - MWLL does not charge or ask for one single dime to keep this blog or their page going. #2. The advise, blogs & support that many of us find on MWLL is priceless. #3. The allowing of "add me" posts for new players on the daily feeds is what gets many new players to continue because of the support and advise they receive from their new friends.

    I don't know who those "Anonymous" idiots are that are constantly attacking Jen and the rest of the MWLL team but you all really need to get over it. If you don't like the information shared then don't read it, don't visit their page, don't read their blogs. How you can be so horribly mean and vindictive is beyond me. I honestly don't know how you sleep at night.

  17. Thank You so much, Jen, for all of Your help, info, time & patience. I know You have helped Me ( and many otheres) so much in this game. The only time I have problems is when I skim rather than read the articles You write for Us.
    It's too bad that so many people feel like they are entitled to so much more when it is all free. It would be a sad day for ALL of US if You decide to stop doing what You do for Us.
    I just want You to know that there are many many more of Us that appreciate all of Your work & effort & are very happy & priveleged to have You as a source of information & help.
    Sincerely, Jimmy Martinez

  18. Some of the most fun I've had in the game in the past year or so. Partly because of the novelty as "something different" and partly because the bar isn't set so high or the timers locked so tightly that it's a pain in the wazoo to complete.

    IMHO Zynga finally got one right for a change.

  19. "I just want You to know that there are many many more of Us that appreciate all of Your work & effort & are very happy & priveleged to have You as a source of information & help."
    I'll second that, it's amazing that people don't understand how much of a favour you & the lootlady crew are doing for us. Brilliant work.
