Get Cookie Energy Boxes for Charity 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

March 12th marked the founding of first Girl Scout troop in the USA. We figure this is a good time to raise money for a great organization, the Girl Guides of Canada.

This organization enables girls to be confident, resourceful and courageous, and to make a difference in the world. So, for the next two days you can buy Boxes of Girl Guide Cookies, of which 100% of our [Codename] proceeds will be donated directly to the Girl Guides of Canada. Talk to the girl guide troop in the Commons by the Town Hall to learn more.

The cookie energy boxes will be on sale until Wednesday March 15th at Noon PDT.

BW2: 2017 St. Patrick's Celebration! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Bushwhackers!

The Commons is greener than usual! That’s because the Commons Party Planning Committee is putting on a St. Patrick’s day party!

Unfortunately, the guests of honour seem to have gotten lost in the bushes. Go whack them up and help them find their way to the Event Area!

There are eight Leprechauns to whack up that will help you put on a rocking St. Patrick’s Day party! Every day the event goes on, the odds to whack them up gets larger, so you can get them all before it ends. Three of them will have turn-in stations for you to do and the others will have repeatable quests for you to do for event progress.

Unlocking throughout the event are previous year quest lines:

Mr. Keith is looking to put out his special brew again. Help him find the ingredients.

Seamus is in the mood to do some whacking of his own, but first he needs your help to make the perfect shillelagh.

Siobhan is throwing her version of an Irish Feast...but the dishes got lost in the bushes. Go find them for her!

Those poor snakes are tired of being whacked so often. Help their leader out by setting up his snake relocation program efforts.

Help Bree learn about Irish mythology!

New for 2017:

We added two new quest lines this year! Mr. Keith has some competition, and a new leprechaun friend has a fun little task for you! They will unlock as the event goes on.

Event Achievements -- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT

There are a total of FIFTEEN possible achievements to earn in the St. Patrick’s Day 2017 event.

Rainbow Cloud Island - Find all of the special items on the Rainbow Cloud Island.
Patty's Purchases - Purchase all of the 2017 St. Patrick's Day event items.*

We also have 6 achievements from previous years which may be earned by spending Bush Bucks if you missed getting them the first time around.

FAQ

What are the different leprechauns?
You can whack up two types of leprechauns: hatted and non-hatted.
  • There are 8 hatted ones to find, 3 will unlock turn-in stations, and the other 5 will give you daily quests. You must manually whack these ones to capture them.

  • The non-hatted ones will drop items for you to turn into the turn-in stations. You can quick whack and mana whack non-hatted leprechauns when they appear if you wish. The non-hatted leprechauns will *always* drop some turn-in items, rather than just having a chance to.


How can I find the leprechauns?
Just keep whacking. You could whack them all up in a day if you wanted to. The odds to whack up hatted leprechauns will increase as the event goes on.

What adds to my event progress?
Turning in items to the Gold, Beer and Clover stations, and doing quests for folks in the event area.

Do I have to do the achievements?
No. Completing the goals for the achievements is totally optional. You get either a large energy pack or a title for your character from them, no event progress.

Where can I see all the achievements available and how to get them?
Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

Why should I ask for friends to help boost turn-ins?
It increases the amount of progress you get from doing a turn-in.

Sleeping Animals Can Be So Cute 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

A very sleepy visitor is staying in the Commons and they're on a mission! Be sure to speak with them, as they might be giving out a unique reward for your assistance! Be quick though, as they'll only be here until Noon PST on Monday, March 6th!

We're also running two new pet packs this weekend! They've got the standard bundle of items each with a new pet. Careful with these pets though, 'cause if you stand still too long they might just fall asleep on you!
