BW2: Happy Birthday Nate! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy Birthday Nate!

It’s that time of year again! Help celebrate Nate Dragon’s birthday by decorating the Commons for him....because no one else will.

First and foremost, whenever Nate is involved, safety becomes a priority. Find Safety Coins in the bushes and bring them to the stations in the Commons to stock up on protective gear. Turn in 10 coins at each station 50 times for an achievement. You can see the number of turn-ins you've completed at a station when you turn in a set of coins. The Kevlar Pad station is there on the first day of the event, and the Fire Extinguisher and Band Aid stations will unlock as the event goes on.

Then it seems Nate needs decorations and activities to set up in the Commons. Go out daily and find things for his party. Have fun trying out the activity stations as many times as you want!

If you're trying to get Tiny Little Arms or Just Like Nate achievements, or if you just want to have a little fun, you need to be wearing all pieces of the Dragon gear or the Nate outfit (available from the vendor's Bush Bucks store if it's your first time playing this event) while completing the 4 party Stations: Dynamite Activity, Campfire Activity, Digging Activity and the Training Whacking Activity.

If you've built the Town Hall, you can expect an fiery visitor to the party as well!

New for 2017:

We've made the Surprise Party set-up quests a little bit easier for you to navigate. Keep an eye out for the Robin with your new task daily. He also has an option to teleport to the zone where the party planners are meeting, and for the duration of the event, going to the Forest Detour won't override your current destination on your return button.

Plus, due to your overwhelming feedback, Nate's mom Elena and Natalie in the Event Zone will have daily quests for you to do as the event goes on. And be on the lookout for a new 4 part quest line later in the event!

And introducing the 100% reward for this year: lanterns! They can face either left or right for all your decorating needs! Check out the explosive Nate themed one below!

Nate's Mythological Heist 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.


Nate has finally cleaned up after all those puppies and is ready to adventure again! Like always though, he needs your level head to help him through his sticky situation.

It seems that Nate has heard rumors that Zeus lives in Cloudland and he wants to explore his palace. If you've completed all of Nate's other ventures and reached the Stratus Incline in Cloudland, the Town Crier will have a quest for you. What could go wrong, visiting the grounds of a vengeful god? Certainly nothing dangerous.
