Hello all! Over the past few days I’ve seen all manner of posts about getting Syndrome. From people who are trudging along, to those who are struggling to some folks who are downright furious. Since the event is ending very very soon, I thought I’d put together some last minute tips for welcoming this big baddie to your Kingdom.
Stop Leveling Incredibles Characters
Thanks to the power of Twitter, I can now say for certain that you will be able to level characters after the event is over. This means that as long as your characters were high enough to defeat the Omnidroid, you no longer need to focus on them. This is extremely important as ALL of them drop valuable items for Syndrome. The kids team up to do so and Mrs. And Mr. Do as well. So stop worrying about getting to 10 with everyone and get them on tasks.
Yes, you do need to be online to welcome Syndrome and collect his tokens. It’s a hard truth for some. If you happen to be at school or work, use those times to send folks out for the 4 hour missions for hats. Check on your lunch break and then resend. This is what I’ve been doing to level him up and it has been quite effective. I’ve spoken to plenty of casual players who have welcomed him so rest assured, you don’t need to send people the very second they finish a task to do the next in order to win this.
Having Frozone is a sure fire way to make your life easier. If you don’t already have him, now is the time. He collects Incredible base tokens in three minutes and Syndrome’s hat in only two hours, making him a fast way to rack up the stuff you need.
Leave Incredible Base Tokens to the Very Last
You are going to have a lot of waiting. Send all your non-Incredible characters who have Incredible tasks to get these tokens (i.e. Hamm and Woody) on their missions every hour, but in the meantime, make sure everyone else is getting the longer tokens. Once you have everything else, Frozone or even the family can rack up 100 base tokens VERY quickly.
Use Mickey and Mike
Mickey drops armbands while Mike drops ears. Make sure you are sending them out as often as you send out your Incredible Characters as they will make your life so much easier.
Use Parades and Raise Happiness
It’s no news to anyone gunning for Syndrome that his tokens have a rather rough drop rate. The best thing you can do to augment this is to always keep your happiness as high as possible and to also run a parade every chance you get. Even if the parade only has one float and it’s the cheapest one, this will still improve drop rate. It might seem minor, but it will make all the difference.
Build the Omnidroid
This is another way to get Syndrome’s tokens so make sure to build it the second you defeat it if you can. This will give you a head start before the quest chain tells you to do it.
Spend Gems Wisely
In all the frustration, I think folks look at how many gems it takes to welcome him flat out and get angry. Be smart about this. If you absolutely have to buy him with gems, do it at the last moment. You still have two days and every token you collect lowers his gem cost. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, simply go to his welcome screen and hit Welcome. It will tell you how many gems you need to get the items you are missing. Use the next two days to get what you can and then, if you must use gems, at least he will be cheaper!
Okay, maybe this won’t make you get him sooner, but it will improve everything else. So many folks are getting disheartened or even angry. Relax, take it one token at a time and have fun. We’ve been told that if you miss him this time around, there will be another oppurtunity in the future. If you don’t get him, you will have another chance someday. I still think many of you will get him! I have faith! Keep working hard and sending those characters on their tasks and don’t give up!!!
I hope that the tips make life a little easier. Happy Hunting!
