Game Elements (Skill Categories)
- The basic elements needed to play the game are listed here as skill categories. Each time you level up in the game you will be asked to assign five additional skill points to these categories.
- You will need to decide how you feel these skill points are best distributed for how you play your game.
- You will want to make sure you have decent attack and defense numbers as well as energy maximum and stamina so you can fight bosses.
- Note - You can also purchase secret codes that will let you undo all of your skill point assignments and it will give you the opportunity to take all that you have earned and reassign them at once instead of five at a time. This can be very valuable once you know where you need the most skill points assigned.
- Keep in mind in addition to these skill points you will need to purchase items such as weapons and gear to increase your attack and defense numbers.
- Recharging - You may want to purchase respect points from “The Don” as you can recharge certain meters such as energy, stamina, health, and loyalty for ten respect points at any time.
- Energy - You must have energy in order to do jobs. Each job will deduct a certain amount of energy each time you do it. Energy is noted with the lightning bolt icon. You can set your maximum amount of energy with skill points immediately after you reach a new level in the game. (You will see a flashing message over your level indicator that says, “Assign Skill Points” until you take care of this task.) Energy can either be fully recharged for ten respect points or you can wait for it to regenerate over time at a rate of one energy point every two minutes and forty five seconds. (This amount of time may vary based on your current level)
- Health - Ideally you want your health to be as close to the maximum of 100 as possible. Health is indicated by the heart icon and you lose health when you attack others or they attack you. If you are killed you will lose all of your health at once and will be hospitalized in the ER. (Read about “Emergency Room” below for more details) You can either pay ten respect points to have your health fully restored, or you may go to the ER where you will have to pay in cash to have your health either partially or fully restored. Your final option is to wait for health to regenerate over time. This is a slow process taking over two minutes for one health point to regenerate. You can set push notifications to warn you when health is fully restored.
- Stamina - Stamina is also determined by the number of skill points you assign to it. You will need stamina in order to fight mob bosses. You will need at least a maximum of five stamina points assigned to super attack a mob boss which helps kill it faster. Stamina is noted with the pill icon. You can purchase a recharge of stamina for ten respect points or you can wait for it to regenerate over time at a rate of one point per at least two minutes and forty five seconds. (This amount of time may vary based on your current level.)
- Loyalty - This number’s maximum is also determined by the skill points you assign to it. If you find you want to recruit a large mob you may want to keep this number high as one loyalty point is deducted each time you recruit or initiate a new mob member. This meter can also be recharged at a cost of ten respect points or you can wait for it to regenerate over time at a rate of at least one loyalty point per two minutes and forty five seconds. (This amount of time may vary based on your current level.)
- Considerations - Whenever you do not have the maximum number of health, energy, stamina or loyalty you will see a small countdown timer above the meter. This counts down until you earn one additional point in the category. Remember, you can always tap on the area to prompt a recharge at a rate of ten respect points. Be sure the meter is totally empty before you make this investment. There are no partial payment options available.
- How to assign additional skill points - As soon as you level up you will see you have been awarded five skill points. Either tap on “Upgrade” from the notification screen or tap on the level indicator at the top right of the screen which will likely be flashing a message for you to upgrade your skill points.
- You will be taken to a screen like the one shown in image above. You can only add skill points to buttons that are red. Tap on the “+” sign to add points and the “-“to subtract. Along the top of the screen you will see how many points are left to assign. Once this reaches “0” tap on the “Upgrade” button at the bottom of the screen to lock in the changes. You will be notified if this is successful and should immediately see new maximums along the top of the screen.
- Special Purchase - If you want to change all the values you can purchase a skill point reassignment code from “The Don” This is a real currency purchase and will be charged to your iTunes account. All the points you have earned in the game will be available and all meters set at zero so you can assign them all at once instead of five points at a time when you reach a new level. Choose wisely based on the tasks you do most in the game. For example, if you fight heavily, you may want to focus on assigning high numbers of attack and defense points as well stamina for fighting mob bosses.

You will need to give this to others so they can invite you to join their mobs. You may want to purchase megaphones in order to post on the World chat. Here people publish their codes and this can result in many friend requests. You may want to post your code on Twitter and Facebook as well to initiate others to join your mob.

- There is also a leaderboard feature at the bottom of your screen which shows the combined stats for all members of you mob.
- Family members will add prestige which will be reflected on your family page. This means your members are active players doing jobs and attacking others.
- Family Gifts - Once a family member is at tier two or above they will qualify for a daily free gift. You can give these if you purchase a respect package. These can vary from wood items up to silver and gold items.
- If you give a gift or receive on, you have exactly twenty four hours to open it or you will lose it. They will be placed in your inventory with other loot and perks.
- Throughout the game whether you are in the casino, doing jobs, fighting, other players or mob bosses you will frequently see screens such as the one above appear showing you that you have won a collection item.
- There are currently thirty eight different collections in the game for you to complete.
- Each collection requires you to find five different items to complete it. Once you complete a collection you will be rewarded with cash and XP.
- Tap on your home screen then on Profile and toward the center of the screen look for “Collections” button. Here you can scroll through the various collections titles.
- You will see a “?” symbol in five slots and a picture anywhere you have acquired a collectible that you need.
- Once all five pictures are shown you have completed a collection and will earn a powerful perk to help you in your game.
- These perks can add loyalty or stamina points to your grand totals or give you items to complete high payout jobs and more.
- Tap on the quest button in the home screen to see the current quest.
- Quests are created by the Don one at a time to pit players against one another. Every player in the game will see and work on the same quest at the same time.
- Each quest has a time limit in which you must complete it and if you do not complete it on time you will have failed the quest and will have to check back until another quest is available to you. Usually there is a countdown clock warning of the next impending quest.
- It takes quite a bit of time to complete a quest as you will usually have to complete it at least ten times to earn a payout. Usually this is a point system where one completion of a task will earn you one point.
- For example, one quest will require you to find a mob boss hideout and to kill a mob boss.
- Each time you do this you will earn one point toward the quest completion.
- At the bottom of the quest is a payout table showing you must complete it with at least ten points to earn a reward. If you can earn twenty or thirty points in the time allotted you will earn very large payouts in chips or tickets you can use in the casino or ticket store. Each quest may have a different minimum requirement for completion.
- Be sure to tap on the quest button daily and keep working toward its completion with its minimum required points stated.
- Once you reach the maximum payout within the allotted time or if you run out of time, a new quest will appear after a few hours.
- Once the quest is over you will be notified if you won or lost followed shortly by the payout if you have won.
- Weekend Quest Challenge - Keep a watch out for the iMob2 blog for special quests and weekend quests schedules. Every weekend there are thirteen quests held back to back and the player that wins the majority of the weekend quests will earn free respect points.
- Quest Notifications - You can set up a notification to alert you when a new quest is about to start. Go to the social tab and then tap on the “Settings” button. (You must have OS 3.0 or greater to do this.)
Banking Accounts and Earning hourly from your Properties
- Banking - Tap on the bank button from the home screen and you will be able to deposit money into a bank account you have opened.
- Note that when you deposit money this is kept safe from others stealing it from you during attacks while you are out of the game. It is usually wise to put your money here before you leave the game. There is however, a 14 percent fee taken out of all deposited funds. You can decrease this by earning perks that lower it by 1 percent at a time or you can purchase the “Offshore account” from the Don for a 4 percent reduction in this deposit fee. The amount of money you have free for deposit at any given time is shown in the deposit window and the amount in the bank is shown in your account balance across the top of the screen.
- You may also withdraw money at any time to use in the game. There is no fee for withdrawing your funds.
- Purchasing and earning from Properties - Tap on the properties button across the top and you can purchase and upgrade properties to make money for you as hourly income.
- The first property available for purchase is the vacant lot and this can be upgraded for a fee to the landfill as shown in image above. You can upgrade a property up to ten times and it will have a higher payout with each upgrade.
- Along the bottom of the screen you will see the hourly payout amount.
- The difficult part here is that you must check into the game every hour to collect your income as once it has reached its maximum it will not generate new income for the next hour unless you have collected it. Missing a collection each hour will cost you money so try to collect every hour if you can.
- You can set push notifications on your device to notify you when it is time to collect the maximum amount from your properties and when you have enough to upgrade them.
- Your class will affect your income amount and there is a class bonus listed along the top of the screen.
- Note – Once you have several properties upgraded and earning hourly wages for you there is a button along the top that will let you collect from all at once versus having to tap on each property. All are calibrated to become due on the hour instead of all different times.
- Once you reach level 20 in the game you can purchase a second property to upgrade and earn hourly wages from.
- News is a very important part of the game and you can access it from the news tab at the bottom of the screen. A number will appear if you have any new news items on this menu.
- Look on the news menu for new comments, bulletins, fight results and notices from the Don.
- Comments - View profiles of players who leave comments and reply to them from the comment screen.
- Fight menu - View those that have attacked you and attack them back or visit their profiles for more information.
- Bulletins - This will show comments posted by those that are members of your mob. You can reply to comments posted here as well.
- Notices - These are messages from “The Don” to the player community. New blog posts, quests, and new game information will be posted under this tab.
