I'm debating this with myself right now. I'm currently a tycoon. A 10% increase in energy yields 432 additional energy a day, maximum, and a 10% increase in stamina yields 48 extra stamina, maximum. I figure I'll get the full benefit of the energy (based on recharges during sleep), but that I'd probably get about 40/48 of the extra possible stamina.

Right now I'm farming Ma Sheng, that takes a little over two days, so figure I'd shave about 5 hours off of that time. That doesn't seem like a huge deal. The extra stamina would be nice for future pvp events. That's the main reason I'm considering the upgrade.

Or should I invest in Rock Cafes? Crates? Save it for stamina refills in the next pvp event?

If it gave me an additional 10% income over tycoon, I think it would be a no brainer. But it doesn't. :/

I should add that I'm not much of a gold spender. Maybe $20 in real money.

It's the best thing in the game for 150 gold. Easy choice. Your economy will get a boost and you have an advantage at the next PVP events.

How does it boost my economy if I'm already a tycoon?

Best 150 gold spent.
It does not upgrade tycoon. it still stays at +10%

Since you're already a tycoon, this is the only feesable way in the game so far to get a quicker stamina refill. I'm surprised they haven't had a event weapon that increases your stamina refill rate, but that just leads me to believe they want to keep goodfella the only possible way to do it.

Everything else in the game has a quick fix feel to it. Gold items will be replaced with new gold items that are more powerful and less expensive too. The goodfella status will only make you better with the more stamina you have later on...so yea this is an awesome way to spend 150 gold in my opinion :)

It's a long term investment that will continually help you over time. It's not fixed and will grow not matter what level you are. Plus it looks cool.

And the earlier you get it, the more it helps you...so upgrade already! :)

It's good. Just do it.

I upgraded to Goodfella when i was lvl 30. The 10% Boost could be your Bank Fee (ir ur a Banker) Anyway, this is the best way to spend 150 Gold

So, no dissenters? :p

If you intend to play for a month and then leave, then its not worth it.
If you play long term then go for it!

No decent girl, go do it, well worth it is my advise

I asked the same question yesterday. Upgraded today and wonder why I waited so long. If you have the 150 gold laying around, do it.

Worth it, especially if you're not a tycoon.

Have found the upgrade useful, not only in stamina and energy, but the income increase was real nice. Spend the gold.

With not a single reason not to go for, I went for it. :)
