The Jangada is the Brazil District 6 mastery item . In addition to what was once considered extremely high stats, the item also provides a special ability. The ability to apply more damage to City bosses in Las Vegas and Italy was never a practical ability to begin with. Each City boss in Las Vegas and Italy could only be defeated 1 time and most players had already defeated these bosses by the time Brazil was released or worked on. If this items special ability was useless prior to the shutdowns of Italy and Las Vegas, it really useless today. It could be placed on our 101 Useless Mafia Wars items list .
When Italy shut down in March of 2011, the item was updated and Italy was removed from the description.
If they really want to change it up and make players happy, they could offer a % energy reduction to all jobs in South Africa.
Thanks to Mina Julius for posting on our fan page. As you can see here, the Jangada is still rewarded to players working on Brazil.
