Los Angeles District 5: Downtown Distress


District 5 of Los Angeles is called Downtown Distress. It’s more of the same and what we can probably expect for the rest of this miserable destination. The details for District 5 are shown below.

The 3 job images as well as the job requirements and payouts for each level are shown below.
Three consumables can be made in District 5. The first two are required for jobs and all 3 are required for Asset Raids.
They can be made in jobs 1, 4 and 8 and the first two can be crafted in the Production House which is now available to be upgraded to Level 5 (2 and a half stars). 
The chart below sums up the details from above. The 2 jobs that don’t require consumables or currency are highlighted. The ratios are getting a little better but still not worth doing these jobs once mastery is achieved.

Consumables are required for both jobs and Asset Raids. More details on Assets are shown below. To figure out the number of consumables required all you need to know is that 20 of each are required per Raid and you need to do 2, 3, 4, and 5 Raids for the bronze, silver, gold and ruby levels. The chart below lists the requirements. To fully master District 5 you will need 460 No Mercies, 460 Ruptures and 280 Snappers. You can’t save on the Asset Raids but if you use the Strategist and Lockpick Bonuses, 2X Mastery Boosts and ask your mafia for job help, you won’t need as many.

When you master the 3rd job you will unlock the Bone House Property which provides up to 10% of your total energy pool every 12 hours. More details on this property will follow in a future post.
The required number of job equipment items is shown below. The cost will vary between accounts as there is a Brazil mastery item that grants a City Store discount as well as the District 4 mastery. The discounts are not stacked. The costs shown below are from an account that has both discounts. The cost for job equipment in District 5 will be around 36,000 Bucks.
The job loot drops are the same old same old. Nothing very useful and if it is it won’t last. 
The Asset for District 5 is the Stash House. Each Raid will require 20 each of the consumables you can make in jobs 1, 4 and 8 and 75% of your total stamina pool. Once you have all that, you can start. The bronze level requires 2 Raids (50% damage), silver 3 Raids (33% damage), gold 4 Raids (20% damage) and ruby 5 Raids (25% damage). The wait times are 15 minutes, 2 hours, 4 hours and 8 hours for the bronze, silver, gold and ruby respectively.
Raids which add to progression but don’t master the Asset reward experience and 2 of those crappy job loot items. This is also all you get once the Asset is owned. Raids in District 4 offer a 2.50 experience/stamina ratio.
Once you do the required number of Raids to do the damage to knock the health down to zero, you get a mastery item and a skill point. Mastering the bronze level will also grant a Medallion. The face of our ‘Arch-Nemesis’ is also revealed. I guess he will get stuff added to him with Districts 6-10. Maybe he will be a robot by the end.
In order to fully master each level, you need to do all of the jobs and master the Asset. Once you do that, you will get the mastery item and a Stanchion Rope. The Stanchion Rope is needed to upgrade the Palms Reserve. The Medical Examiner grants a 3%, 7%, 11% or 15% payout to all Los Angeles properties. The increase is not stacked with the Task Master Crew Bonus but it is one of the more useful mastery items.
The collection for District 4 is the Carried Away collection and you get +35 Defense once you vault it.
District 5 has 7 achievements. One for ruby mastering the district, four for mastering both District 4 and 5 and 2 for mastering the Assets on the bronze and ruby levels. The Cryptext achievement comes with +2 skill points and the rest with +1. You also get to keep the bronze and ruby
