Train the next generation of Whackers Today! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Welcome to the most educational Event you'll ever see in Bush Whacker 2!

Help three aspiring young gals and guys learn the ropes over the course of the event by helping them learn how to whack bushes, mana whack, and power whack! Bring the Jr. Whackers cardboard swords found in bushes throughout the world, and they'll share the spoils of their training with you. As you help them, they gain experience, "levelling up" and will award more items with each turn-in*. Each of the determined young padawans will have a daily quest after they unlock, which will double their drops for the next turn-in.

Several ambitious wannabes have returned for another year of training, and the most enthusiastic of them has a series of quests which will unlock over the course of the event.

*This event does *not* contain a "turn-in all" option, due to the nature of the turn-in activity itself. Sorry!


We have added two new quests for this year, so make sure you keep an eye out for them!

New Content: PAGAS daily quests have been added! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Vincent, the local PAGAS Representative has received word from headquarters to begin offering daily missions for you and your equipped pet, and gain some much needed experience.

Haven't unlocked Vincent yet? Check the requirements on how you can do that here.

Check back with Vincent daily, for a random chance of one of six (6) possible dailies, focused around training a well behaved companion. Each daily quest rewards a Quester's Satchel and XP for whatever pet you have equipped at the moment of turn-in. Completing all 6 will unlock an achievement and a new title!




We took the opportunity and made a few improvements to the Quester's Satchel and rewards that you can earn:

  • Satchel icons will have a coloured flare which indicates the rarity of the item contained within it; existing icon for common items, green for 'uncommon', blue for rare and a purple flare for epics (see below).
  • New tier of Satchel Rewards have been added: Epic Quester's Satchels will drop extremely rarely, but have a chance to include a new custom item or larger Bush Buck rewards.

Here a Gift, there some Housekeeping! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

This week's update includes a feature often requested by players: A Gifting System!

Players who want to surprise their friends can now buy Bush Bucks, Pet Packs and VIP Time for them! For now the gifting system only includes premium items, but we may expand it to include other items in the future.

To get started, you will just need to find Sasha in the Commons, and talk to her, she'll now have an option in her dialogues to allow you to send gifts.

Depending where you are in your progress within the Commons, you can find Sasha in one of four places:

  • If you have NOT built the Farmer's Market, she will be standing just to the right of the north entrance to The Commons.
  • If you have NOT built Sasha's house, she will be standing to the left of the Town Hall.
  • If you have built Sasha's house, and are at her party, she is to be found inside her house.
  • If you have already attended the party, Sasha will be found outside her front door.
  •
