Los Angeles District 8: Skid Road


District 8 of Los Angeles is called Skid Road and will unlock once you master the bronze tier of District 7. It’s just like all the other districts of Los Angeles except more consumables are required. The details for this district are shown below. 

The 3 job images and the Ruby job page are shown below.
Three consumables can be made in District 8. The first two are required for jobs and all 3 are required for Asset Raids.
Consumables can be made in jobs 1, 2 and 6 and the first two can be crafted in the Production House which is now available to be upgraded to Level 9 (4 and a half stars).

The chart below lists the requirements and ratios for all 4 tiers of mastery. There is only 1 job in District 7 that doesn’t require consumables or currency and the ratio is 2.263 on the Ruby level. This will be a good job to farm currency.

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 30 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 the district you need a total of 1,620 consumables.  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.

Jobs Jobs Jobs Jobs Assets Assets Assets Assets

The job equipment and how many of each are required is shown below. The cost will vary between accounts as there is a Brazil mastery item that grants a City Store discount for all destinations as well as the District 4 mastery in Los Angeles which grants a discount in the Los Angeles City Store. The discounts are not stacked. The costs shown below are from an account that has both discounts.
The job loot drops are pretty useless and the last 2 are rewards for Asset Raids. Zynga has no business calling them rewards when they don't do anything for you!
The Asset for District 8 is the Hivemind Sector 13. The 4 stages of development are shown below. 
Each Raid will require 30 each of the consumables you can make in jobs 1, 2 and 6 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 (25% damage) and ruby 5 Raids (20% damage). The wait times are 15 minutes, 2 hours, 4 hours and 8 hours for the bronze, silver, gold and ruby respectively. To speed up the timers it costs 5, 7, 10 or 15 reward points depending on the mastery level. It’s best to just wait.
Raids which add to progression but don’t master the Asset reward experience and 2 of crappy job loot items. This is also all you get once the Asset is owned. Raids in District 8 offer a 2.65 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 Asset Guy has returned after mysteriously reverting back to a shadowed form for Districts 6 and 7. 
When you master the bronze, silver, gold and ruby Asset Raid you also get a Government Informant and a skill point. You only get to keep the Bronze and Ruby items. 
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 Beastmaster will increase the experience payouts from Missions by 2%, 5%, 7% and 10% (depending on the level of mastery). Zynga doesn't say if it's only from Missions in Los Angeles or all Missions but the Mexico mastery items with this special ability only worked on Mexico Missions.
The collection for District 8 is the Access Granted Collection and you get +35 health points for vaulting it.
District 8 has 3 achievements. One for ruby mastering the district, two for mastering the Assets on the Bronze and Ruby levels.
