Guys! Are you sure this isn’t an event? I feel itchy. Should I feel itchy? Upon logging into DMK this morning to get working on the Jungle Book, I was extremely confused by the fact that there was no event timer or event task list. The Jungle Book returns to the days of yesteryear when updates could be completed as your time permitted. A simpler time when my hair didn’t fall out at the prospect of not getting Jafar in time. As such, however, I was a little lost as to where to start. That being said, we’ll be starting a little bit before the new content today as I waited until today to get Bagheera in order to see the changes to his required tokens. We’ll also be talking about everything leading up to building your first Jungly new attraction! Are you excited? I know I am. But that could be all the candy I ate at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party last night. Either way, let’s jump in.
New Bagheera Requirements
Alright kiddos. Gather round the table. I think we can be honest with each other. Bagheera was a pain in the…well…let’s just say he was incredibly painfully hard to get. Fortunately, with today’s release, Bagheera just got a whole lot easier. Let’s look at his new requirements.
Prickly Pears now require 30 instead of 20. Alright, I know that’s a step in the wrong direction, but the real thing to notice here is how many more characters can now grab these pears. That’s good news because we are going to need a lot of them for these characters in the near future.
“No no,” says Bagheera. “There is no way I am returning to any kingdom unless someone finds me at least 20 sticks. I require all the sticks!!!” Again, we have many more than the initial three options for grabbing perches, but also important is the fact that these tasks are now only 8 hours as opposed to 12. As a VERY important side note, King Louie has a task which lasts only TWO hours which can drop the perch. Remember however that it is an epic item so the drops will still be few and far between.
Bagheera Ears Hat
Unless you had toy alien up to level 8, this update will now make it so that you have far more than only two options to get these hats. Though while there are more options, the tasks will still have you grinding away at the 12 hour mark. But again, King Louie has a task that is a mere FOUR hours for these ears. Guys! King Louie really wants you to have Bagheera. And because of this, he is very worth the price of admission.
Bagheera joins the Kingdom
With all these helpful friends, earning Bagheera becomes a much more fathomable task than he was yesterday. And he’s so cute!
Welcoming King Louie
Raise your hand if you thought we’d get an update without a gem character. Now if you raised your hand, go ahead and imagine me pointing and laughing at you until my laughter turns to tears of sadness.
King Louie costs more gems than all seven dwarfs would find if they searched for a year. But wait! There’s good news!
There’s a promo for the king! And it’s half the cost of buying him with gems AND it comes with gems! It’s as if Christmas came early! Sure, it’s a Christmas where I’m buying a gift for myself, but still!
And he dances so nicely! Let’s not kid ourselves though. If you want to get The Jungle Book this century, King Louie is ESSENTIAL. His tasks are far faster than anyone else for grabbing Jungle characters.
Questing in the Jungle
Bagheera is worrying. He smells something funny, and it’s not zombie Gaston.
Bagheera will get a 2 hour quest to track a familiar scent, while Mowgli will get a two part quest, one which is 12 hours for himself and another which is 8 hours for Bagheera, but first you must level up the cat to level 2.
Once this is accomplished, you’ll get your first sight of Jay Leno the tiger…I mean Shere Kahn. Sorry, the big chin threw me.
Bagheera will be delighted to know that his nose was on the right track. But I’m concerned. Does Shere Kahn smell really bad or something? Can everyone in the kingdom smell him? I’m really concerned for Rapunzel. She seems sensitive to these things.
Building the Jungle River Drift
Bagheera will decide that what Mowgli really needs is a theme park attraction to hide in. It’s the perfect plan! Quick! To the Loin Cloth Mobile!!!
You’ll need Mowgli to be level three before you can build the new attraction, but hopefully all your hard work on Bagheera has yielded you a few extra Mowgli tokens as well! The Jungle River Draft will cost you 100,000 potions and will take FOUR hours to construct. But at least for now it also helps with Mowgli’s hats!
That is where I leave you with the Quest in the Kingdom. I’ll update more as I progress!
New Parade Float
Last but not least, we have a new parade float for the Jungle Book equipped with Baloo dancing and the chance to drop tokens for Mowgli, King Louie, Bagheera and hopefully more characters to come! The float costs 50 gems to purchase, but once you have it, Baloo can march through the Kingdom, dancing his way to greatness!
The Story Continues
That’s all I’ve got for now! Let me know how far you are and if you’re enjoying the update and the lack of event so far! Let me know in the comments below! Once I move on a little bit in the story line, I’ll continue chronically my adventures here so make sure to check back!
