Crowbar

Hi, I am on level 12. I can buy a crowbar for $1750 gold. This will amongst other things give me $20,000 which I can use to buy more land [$15,000]. Or I can buy my next land for $1250 gold. Or of course, I can just wait until I have saved up enough money.

I am wondering if more crates will appear after level 12 that require a crowbar to open them, and if so, do you have to buy a new crowbar or can you use the one you already bought?

thanks

    The crates are for new players only and you will stop getting them after level 18.

    Each crate needs a new crowbar.

    You don't get another crate if you have an unopened one

    Any unopened crate will disappear around level 18/19

    what don't you get?. the crowbar is for a crate that gets dropped on low level farms lv 1 - 18 some are free but others need a crow bar, the crow bar can only be bought with gold.

    You will see that crowbar at the right side of the farm.
    You have to purchase that crowbar by 1750 Golds.

    is there any other way to get the crowbar other than paying gold?

    or do i just have to pay gold? because it doesnt seem fair to spend 1750 gold for 20000 dollars 100 pigfeed and 100 chicken feed it should be like 1000 just tell me if there is any other way cause im a noob (lvl13) :(



    ok i get it now thank you rhon3 :D

    Hi there Hupla

    I've moved your question to the Questions about the Game forum. You're more likely to get answers here :)

    Gold is the only way to buy a crowbar. And one crowbar for every crate. So you need to decide if the contents are worth the gold

    You won't get another crate until you have opened the one you have
    You stop getting crates at level 18
    Any unopened crate will disappear shortly after that too

    You can buy one with gold. You should have a 'show me' to take you to the shop

    A little harsh Tess, It was just a question from someone who is most likely above those levels.

    I didn't get it either before I read some more about it. Apparently it was introduced when I was past level 18 :( Never got to see what it was all about.

    You were absolutely correct, reading back on it , it does sound very harsh. I will send her a apology after I post this. It sure was not meant to be harsh at all.
    Thank you Patrick for pointing out my error.

    I didn't think it sounded harsh at all. You just asked what she didn't get. The problem is that 'What don't you get?' is often used in a sarcastic way, to make people feel dumb or ignorant for not getting something obvious. But looking at the context, it is clear there is no sarcastic undertone at all, especially coming from a mod... Sarcasm only ever makes sense (or is detectable) in the right context, so this wasn't harsh at all.

    My god is that what a 1750 gold item gives you, 20,000$????!

    Even the trading floor lady gives 50,000$ and she's a rip off even so. Aussie gal and everyone else, go ahead and buy gold sure (During 50% off prime day) but holy crap don't buy those crow bars if that's all it gives you.

    Thanks for the head up, I'm gonna warn my low level coop players.

    Patrick.

    I thought as much, I couldn't see that intent coming from someone with such a pretty bird avatar :)

    Abrocks919User, the only reason to buy a crowbar is to open a cargo box dropped by a plane. If you have one that requires a crowbar, there's a button right on it to buy one. And if you don't have a box that needs a crowbar, then you don't need a crowbar.

    If you really want to open that crate you need to buy the crowbar with Gold. Click the crate and there is a 'show me' hand

    You don't have to open the crate though and it will disappear eventually.

    I would definitely not recommand spending your gold on that crowbar. If you save it for a watertower you will have much more help from it and for much longer!

    You will need a new crow bar each time. One crowbar per crate. You don't have to open the crates. So decide if the contents are worth it to you. You win't get another until the current one is opened. It will disappear eventually

    The only way to get a crowbar is with gold.

    Don't worry, you don't need to open all those crates anyway :)

    In case you had not purchased a crowbar by a gold to open up the crate , then the crate will disappear after Level 30-34 ( Approximate ).

    It is right there with the crate. You can buy it for gold. Not worth it though, imo. Up to you :)
