Christmas Craziness 2014! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Ho-ho-hello, Bush Whackers!

It's Christmas time in Bush Whacker 2, and the elves need your help to make everything go smoothly! This event will run until December 30th at noon PST!

You'll want to get started by heading to the event area in the Commons. There you'll help an elf fix his teleporter.. Once you've fixed it up, you'll be able to journey far to the North Pole where you'll find a whole host of NPCs in need!

Your primary task will be helping the elves make presents by bringing them Candy Canes (that you find in bushes), but there is a veritable smorgasbord of holiday related quests to complete as well. All of these quests will unlock over the course of the event, with the last ones unlocking on Christmas Day. You'll have up until December 30th at noon PST to get them all done though, so there's no rush.

New to 2014:

There are 14 new quests in the 2014 edition of the event. The largest set revolves around helping a romantic fellow find 12 days worth of presents for his true love. You'll also need to find some new winter knick-knacks for two other folks in the North Pole. The life of a Bush Whacker is never an easy one.
