As you are entering Moscow for the first time, don't worry too much about which side that you pick. Zynga has conveniently allowed everyone to pick a side after mastering a level of a particular job. It will only remain as it is forever for Level 3.
Frequently Asked Questions:
When do I pick my Moscow side (Vory or Mafiya)?
In the second chapter of each episode, and you can change at each mastery.
Does which side I've chosen affect my mafia members or who I can fight against?
No. There is no impact on whom you can fight against based upon your Moscow faction. This choice merely appears to affect only a couple jobs on the episode.
Mafia Wars now has Moscow loot drops from fights, so why is this guide necessary?
One point to note about loot drops from fights is that they will only be drop at level 100+ onward, hence if you want to gather the best loot faster, this guide is still necessary.
Mafia Wars Wiki Recommendation: Does not matter. Lower-level players may prefer Mafiya, as the loot has higher attack and defense.
|Mafiya||Molotok Pistol ||22||26||Collect the Hit Payoff|
|Vory||Cherepakha Compact ||18||25||Collect the Ransom|
Mafia Wars Wiki Recommendation: Mafiya, because with Vory you need 40 more Concealable Cameras. Before this, the Concealable Cameras were not spent after the mission, but Zynga fixed this and now you have to spend the Concealable Cameras on the job.
|Mafiya||RAS-15 ||30||18||Convince The Candidate to Withdraw|
|Vory||Severnyy Olen Snowbike ||32||20||Extract A Favor From The Winner|
Mafia Wars Wiki Recommendation: Does not matter.
|Mafiya||Volk Luxury Sedan ||24||36||Steal The Bank President's Car Keys|
|Vory||Taiga Combat Shotgun ||32||20||Use the Guard's Keys To Access the Bank Armory|
Mafia Wars Wiki Recommendation: Vory, because Shturmovik is currently the best offensive armor that can be obtained from Jobs (-5 from Yakuza Assassin) and with Mafiya you need 62 more Untraceable Cell Phones.
|Mafiya||Orel Armored Helicopter ||24||40||Arrange The Sale Of Weapons-Grade Explosives|
|Vory||Shturmovik ||45||28||Rob A Troop Convoy|
Mafia Wars Wiki Recommendation: Vory, because the Ubijca Assault Rifle is currently the best offensive weapon, although as strong as the Tanto and only gives +1 point addition from TNT, Type-103 Machine Gun & Canonazo.
|Mafiya||Klyk-9 Machine Pistol ||21||43||Kill A Lookout|
|Vory||Ubijca Assault Rifle ||43||18||Help Plan The Next Attack|
- Mafia Wars Wiki Recommendation: Mafiya, as Zmeya Carbon Blade is currently the best defensive weapon)
- After the launch of Episode 6 & 7 in Bangkok: Vory (You get to master Chapter 2 of this Episode faster)
|Mafiya||Zmeya Carbon Blade ||28||44||Hit a Vory Nightclub|
|Vory||Konstantin Cargo Carrier ||18||44||Hijack a Mafiya Cargo|
