Class of 99's

Class of 99s #2 – Amy Aims For The Stars

Hey there Addicts

So it’s time for your characters to climb the career ladder, yes they’ve hovered in the lowly ranks for long enough and now they need to take that one giant step for man, robot, alien, mutant or woman kind to reach that coveted 4-Star rank that will see them start their journey towards the ultimate goal of being a Level 99 character.

And as you know I decided to do posts tracking my characters progress as they aim to join my Class of 99’s. Promoting characters to 99 is not easy but I thought we might as well have some fun along the way looking at the various characters that make the ultimate journey from 1-99 in my game. And who are we going to be looking at today? Well Amy, as she had the great honour of being the first Scientist I took all the way to Level 99.

So why did I choose Amy? Quite simply because she’s charming, or more accurately I chose her due to her ability to charm enemies in combat.  So this promotion was based on combat strategy.

So let’s break down what it will cost you to get our first Scientist into the Class of 99’s and of course look at the benefits there are in ranking and levelling Amy up.  And to make it simple to follow I’ll break it up into her Star Ranks.


1-Star Rank Amy

Every character, including Amy, starts ranked at 1-Star, and at this rank Amy comes with the following passives:

Scientist’s Experiment: Launches an attack against multiple enemies

Splash Attack: Attacks multiple enemies.

And from here you can start levelling up Amy to a maximum Level 10. The cost to do so is as follows:

Nixonbucks: 3840
Career XP: 2400
Career XP in Peta Chips: 3 Peta Chips *you can use other size chips of course*

Once at Level 10, Amy cannot rise the level ladder any further until you promote her to a 2-Star Rank.


2-Star Rank Amy

So now we need get Amy promoted to 2-Star rank and here’s what that will cost and what it will get you.

Star Badges: 8 Generic 2-Star Badges
Nixonbucks: 3096

Promoting Amy to 2-Star rank unlocks the following passive:

Too Cool For School: 15% reduced damage from Brainy enemies.

Now Amy is flouting her 2-Star Rank you can get on with the job of levelling her up to Level 30. And the cost of this is as follows:

Nixonbucks: 97312
Career XP: 60820
Career XP in Peta Chips: 63 Peta Chips *you can use other size chips of course*

Once at Level 30, Amy cannot rise the level ladder any further until you promote her to a 3-Star Rank.


3 Star Rank Amy

So now we need get Amy promoted to 3-Star rank and here’s what that will cost and what it will get you.

Star Badges: 8 Scientist 3-Star Badges & 8 Generic 3-Star Badges
Nixonbucks: 29304

Promoting Amy to 3-Star rank unlocks the following passive:

Fight or Flight: When Amy HP is below 50%, Amy’s Attack increases by 10%.

Now Amy is flouting her 3-Star Rank you can get on with the job of levelling her up to Level 60. And the cost of this is as follows:

Nixonbucks: 705968
Career XP: 441130
Career XP in Peta Chips: 455 Peta Chips *you can use other size chips of course*

Once at Level 60, Amy cannot rise the level ladder any further until you promote her to a 4-Star Rank.


4 Star Rank Amy

So now we need get Amy promoted to 4-Star rank and here’s what that will cost and what it will get you.

Star Badges: 8 Scientist 4-Star Badges & 8 Generic 4-Star Badges
Nixonbucks: 119016

Promoting Amy to 4-Star rank unlocks the following passive:

The Midriff Special: Amy’s basic attacks have a 15% chance to charm enemies.

Now Amy is flouting her 4-Star Rank you can get on with the job of levelling her up to Level 99. And the cost of this is as follows:

Nixonbucks: 2816528
Career XP: 1760330
Career XP in Peta Chips: 1815 Peta Chips *you can use other size chips of course*

Once at Level 99, Amy cannot currently be levelled any further.


Total Costs

Just to make your eyes water here’s the total cost of getting Amy from Level 1 to Level 99.

 

Star Badges: 8 Generic 2-Star Badges, 8 Generic 3-Star Badges, 8 Scientist 3-Star Badges, 8 Generic 4-Star Badges, 8 Scientist 4-Star Badges,

Nixonbucks: 3775064

Career XP: 2264780

Career XP in Peta Chips: 2335


Was She Worth It?

So is Amy a worthy promotion or a luxury you can’t afford?

Well in my opinion, and this is just mine, she’s a very worthy promotion to at least 4 Star Rank as this unlocks her Charm passive, and although it says there is only 15% chance of this I find the odds of her using it much higher. Add to this her Scientist ability to attack multiple enemies at once and she’s a main character she’s very worthy of the resources spent on her.


Russian Tigger Class of 99’s!!!

So Amy is the second crew member to make it into my Class of 99’s. Who’ll be next? I’ll reveal all soon.


There you have it, the overall costs and benefits of promoting Amy. What do you think of levelling up so far? Any tips for fellow Players? Any characters you’d like to see at 99?  Let us know in the comments.

  1. The question is… is Scientist Amy the best one to promote to 99? (What are your thoughts on the different versions of Amy?)
    Personally, I have three of them at Lev 30, and only the most recent one is now a 3 star.

  2. Honestly, how have you been able to amass almost 4 million Nixon bucks, not to mention all the other resources?

    The currency levels for these characters are beyond ridiculous. I just read where Zapp is 90,000 in DOOP currency. Why are the devs so fierce about throttling the players? Are they just desperate to make money?

    • These details are pulled from my “test” game in which I have some free pizza from TinyCo. I used this to run the Daily Planet missions to get resources for my first few 99s. It took me lot time and a repetitive strain injury to do these. In my own game I’m long way from having a character at 99.

      Zapp isn’t limited time so you just keep collecting, he’s supposed to take time. So don’t feel you need rush getting him with pizza.
