Should I Finish Erik's Questline Now? (See post for details)

So, I had been holding off finishing Erik's questline so that I could continue to have Lisa interview him and earn beers. However, I've now both earned Pyro and finished the main questline. I don't care that much about earning bonuts, so I'm wondering whether I should now go ahead and finish Erik's questline or whether, if I don't, I'll continue to be able to use his task with Lisa to earn whatever the event currency is for Act 2. (Or maybe they’ll both have independent tasks to earn event currency in Act 2?)

  • I'm leaving it unfinished for now, with Lisa back on the Eliminator until Act 2.

    I suspect that the event currency will change over to regular cash for the quest tasks once that the act complete as for act 2 it will have a completely seperate quest line with a new currency item.
    Welcome to the forum, there's some fantastic information available on here.

    ^ this.
    if you hard. then you hard.
  • ^ also.

    There's no time limit to finishing the quest. I'm going to leave it undone in case it'll be useful in act two.
    I have Erik earning bricks and Lisa on the Rail Yard or Terminator.
  • Thanks for the advice, everyone! :)

    You all finished part one of the event already. Three days earlier than needed. It's highly likely that you'll finish the next part of the event ahead of time as well. What's your reason for keeping the quest? I'd definitely finish it (and did finish it).
  • @Brabsel I never know if I might be swamped with work and not have time to check my phone. An extra leg up for the next act can make the all the difference sometimes.

    So I can finish 4 days early next round.
  • I'm going to have three DC's ready for when Act 2 starts so I can hit the ground running.

  • No point finishing the task right now if there's a possibility Lisa will be useful in Act 2 but there again, it should be easy to finish either way given how Act 1 was not too difficult.

    @#$%^%#@$, i always forget to save those!!
  • i always forget to save those!!

    Although, I flubbed the math wrong; so I had to swallow one of the 3 DC's I was going to save (because we'll get that 3rd DC at the start of Act 2).

  • What if you can't finish the quest line when act two starts? What if it's taken away? I don't see the point in not doing the tasks and getting them done. I'm maxed on the percentage at the Mega PlayStation, and I have all the prizes. I'm just biding my time until act two starts. I didn't have any problems getting everything, but did discover something I wasn't aware of. I purchased Moe's Express, but didn't notice until about two days ago, if you send Moe to tend bar, and Homer to get drunk at Moe's Express, they both earn 90 Duff beers each for 4 hours, opposed to earning 60 Duff beers in 4 hours at the Mega PlayStation at 20% profit.
  • But it's not just about the beers (or whatever the act 2 currency turns out to be) - it's also about the crafting currency. Since I have little doubt that I'll finish the prize track, I'd rather earn slightly less event currency if it means I'll also be earning crafting currency, too. I actually don't like most of the craftables, but I'm thinking that, when I'm at the end and just crafting stuff I want multiples of, I'm gonna want to get as many fences as I can, since those can be used in lots of possible future places.
  • In case anyone's interested, it was good that I didn't proceed with Erik's questline during the lull, as it still does allow one to send him interviewing with Lisa for double event currency. :)

    (I'm just sorry I didn't save Marge's mediation task, too.)

    That was part of the main questline, I didn’t unlock bonuts until it was done.
