Robot Hell On Earth

Should I Spend Pizza? Lionel Preacherbot

Hello Humans!!!

Head spinning with all the intergalactic trade that’s going on in FWOT? Pizza burning a whole in your pocket whenever a new premium item falls from the skies into our stores?

Yes, the temptation with games like FWOT is just to buy, buy, buy!!! But do this and before you know it you’ll be sitting counting the costs as your Pizza will disappear faster than Fry when there’s work yo be done!!! So we’re here to help you decide what’s worth spending your precious Pizza on,  and what’s not as its just plain old space junk. Today we’re going to talk about Lionel Preacherbot.

Character: Lionel Preacherbot
Pizza Cost: 260 
Class: Robot
Questline: Eternal Damnation
Earns: Nixonbucks & xp – amount varies by task
Drops: “Ask For A Donation” task (3hrs) always drops 1x Glass Globe
Voiced: Yes
Building: Temple of Robotology
Building Earns: 35  and 3  every 3hrs
Building Drops: None


Release Details: Limited Time Release as part of the Robot Hell On Earth event. Only available until the end of the event. So this will be leaving our stores on 8th November 3pm PDT (That’s GMT-7)


Futurama Facts: Lionel Preacherbot is unsurprisingly a preacher at the Temple of Robotology, and has appeared in many episodes of Futurama, usually presiding over weddings or funerals. When he’s not doing that you’ll find him trying to cure robosexuslity or welding.


Pros:

  • Comes with questline
  • Drops 1x Glass Globe every 3 hours, that’s a potential 8 Glass Globes every 24 hours
  • Can clear Robot Snakes
  • Will help you create more Fire Bombs with his Glass Globes drop
  • 3 animated tasks
  • He’s the Preacherbot
  • Comes with Temple Of Robotology building which drops 3 Robot Souls every 3 hours and looks mighty fine

Cons:

  • 260 Pizza is a lot to pay but he’s appeared in quite a few episodes
  • Reliant on drops of other bomb materials to use Glass Globes, namely Corks & Water, with them in short supply I foresee a lot of excess Glass Globes
  • Character needs to be levelled up to access some tasks, including the Glass Globe drop task
  • Task to clear Robot Snakes takes 3 hour but unless you level up Preacherbot you’ll need repeat task twice to clear each Robot Snake

Final Thought:

So with the above in mind Would I Buy? Well here’s my thoughts…..

If I were playing Premium: Well if you’ve more Pizza lying around than your local Dominos I’d say you should pause before you buy. Yes he’s a Preacher, and that might encourage you to donate pizza to his cause as you want to add  him to your character collection. If tats case, go for it. On the other hand I’d your considering buying him for his event usefulness, as his drop is Glass Globe is only useful if you can get enough of the other resources to build extra Water Bombs, and Corks and Water aren’t quick to come by. I’m finding Glass Globes the easiest of the bomb supplies to gather and I’m sitting with 6 at the moment but no Corks or Water to be able create bombs.. You will find you will use him to clear the Robot Snakes to get extra Water drops.

If I were playing Freemium: I’d save your Pizza as I think at 260 Pizza there are better Characters out there and some may appear in the store for you to snap up in further Phases of this event. You’ll also get enough Glass Globes elsewhere, as I say it’s the Corks & Water that seem to be the hold up for me.

However one last things I’d like mention is the Temple of Robotology building, you get this with him and it’s a mighty fine looking building as you can see.


Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do… But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before he leaves our games for good, (or at least for now, I’m sure with him being a Robot he’ll be back, one day).

What are your thoughts on Lionel Preacherbot? Will you be spending Pizza to bring him to New New York? Did you buy him already? If so, why? If no, then why not?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. This is the first tempting character so far this event. I have just enough pizza but free premium currency has been more difficult to obtain recently and unless I decide to buy quickly, I’ll probably wait for another opportunity.
