Share Your Bush Whacking Knowledge 2016 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Teach Me How to Whack!

It's time to put your knowledge of whacking bushes to good use as you help educate the next generation! Take a trip to the Event Area of the Commons and get helping!

Help three aspiring young ones learn how to whack bushes, mana whack, and power whack! Bring the Jr. Whackers some Cardboard Swords to use, found in bushes throughout the world, and they'll share the spoils of their training with you. As you help them, they gain experience, "leveling up" and will award more items with each turn-in. Each of the determined young padawans will have a daily quest to power up the spoils from their next turn-in.

One Jr. Whacker appears to have suffered a head injury, since they are idolizing Nate. Talk to them and see what's going on.

What's a funner thing to earn than your Baking badge? Nothing of course! Help one Jr. Whacker get theirs later on in the event.

New for 2016
We've added 9 new quests where you get to help a Jr. Whacker earn their Camping badge. Stayed tuned for unlocks throughout the event.

BW2 Achievement Screen Update 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

This week we've done some housekeeping on the Achievement screen for Bush Whacker 2!

Now you can flip through the different categories of achievements and see which ones are incomplete with ease!

Bush Whacker 2 has Achievements?
If it's been a while since you visited the achievement screen, you get to it by clicking on the Bag icon, and selecting the medal symbol.



Opening the dialog will bring you to the new Summary page! See all your progress in the various categories and your most recent achievements!



The fairy lights on the buttons tell you which tab you are visiting! If a category has sub-categories, the list will show up when you click on the main tab.



You can even check out which ones are incomplete by toggling the "Incomplete Only" option!



Happy whacking! How close are you to perfection? Tell us on the forums!
