Saving Dossiers For Act III

I have finished Act II and still have a few Dossiers left. Should I hold on to them until Act III for the 1000 bonus each?( I'm not too concerned with Bonuts from Act Currency right now because I get 1-2 chances a day as it is.) Thank you in advance!

    Each set of completed dossiers is related to a different Agency: EPA/Screampillar; G.H.O.S.T./G.H.O.S.T. Enforcer; CIA/Gridhouse Asassin; Wall Street/Yakuza Boss.

    If you clear a dosier each day as they become available, you'll end up with a few extra days before the next set starts.

    Since most players are clearing them before the reset, we don't know if the reset happens even if you haven't cleared all the dossiers. If this is what happens then you would miss out on the prize for that set of dossiers.

    There has to be some players out there who didn't complete the first set of dossiers before Act 1 ended. Where are they? What did they see?
  • There's only 3 days in the act left but 5 dossiers, so to me that means the dossiers won't change right off. Saving them might be the clever thing to do.
  • I would save them. On Monday night you can put the two characters on the first dossier you saved. Wake up Tuesday and there is 1 down. Then the rest of tuesday you can do the other dossiers. I did that between Act 1 and 2 and before the first day of act 2 ended, between the daily challenges I saved, the dossiers etc I had almost 10K intel....

    So it works? For the dailies, I'd have to collect today's, then don't collect Tomorrow or Monday's until Tuesday, right?

    Yes, cause the end of the dossiers won't be until Wed, so you can do the Sun, Mon on Tuesday. It worked for me last time.

    As for the daily challenges, you can have up to three so I what I did is if I got 1000 intel I would NOT collect that, but if it was schematics or a donut I would collect that.

    So for me today (saturday 4/22/17) was 1000 intel, I will not collect it but hold it. If Sunday and Monday are both intel then I will collect 1 of them, otheriwse you lose it come Tuesday morning cause you can only have three daily challenges. If Sunday or Monday is schematics or a donut rewards, I will NOT collect the intel reward, but will collect the schematrics or donut reward and then on Tuesday you will still only have 3 daily challenge rewards.

    IE...Saturday 1000, Sunday 90 schematics, Monday 1000 intel...You would collect the 90 schematisc, save the other two, then on Tuesday morning a new daily challenge would start, it would replace the Sunday so you'd still only have 3..you would then collect Saturday and Monday and have 2000 intel first thing in the morning.
  • Thanks. I like this idea.
  • I'm leaving one character left undone in each dossier task. That way I can clear them all in one day when Act 3 starts. Example: if a dossier requires 3 character tasks, I complete 2. I try to make the characters different that are open, so they clear all at once.

    I didn't think of that! Nice idea!

    That is a great idea! I had been sweating how to make sure I cleared out all the old ones quickly enough, but your idea makes it easy. In fact, if you plan carefully, you can knock out 7 dossiers simultaneously. Here's how:
    1. Dossier 1: leave Cletus undone (do Moe and Krusty in advance)
    2. Dossier 2: leave Homer undone (do Apu in advance)
    3. Dossier 3: leave Moe undone (do Skinner in advance)
    4. Dossier 4: leave Skinner undone (do Krusty and Homer in advance)
    5. Dossier 5: leave Marge undone (do Cletus in advance)
    6. Dossier 6: leave Krusty undone (do Homer in advance)
    7. Dossier 7: leave Apu undone (do Marge in advance)

    Then, on Monday night before you go to bed, send all 7 of the above on the final task. When you wake up on Tuesday, 7 dossiers completed with 7000 new currency, and you'll be completely caught up!

    I just checked a town I'm not playing. I had already stated the update, the prize is still the screaming caterpillar if that helps.

    Yep! :wink:
