BW2: Jr. Whacker Event 2017 Edition 
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.

Help Keisha get her camping badge again this year! Check back daily for her quest unlocks.

New for 2017

Updated Event! Sasha's Schoolhouse Scourge! 

We gotta go back, back, back to school again! But it's no high school musical. It's time for classes, homework and demons as we play through the Sasha's Schoolhouse Scourge event, 2017 edition!

The teachers and students have fallen victim to possession once again, and it's up to you and your intrepid Crusaders to save the day. If you haven't recruited them yet, now is you chance to add Karen and Mr. Boggins to your roster!

Two new Tier 2 Crusaders, Willy the Weregoat and The Exchange Student will be available to recruit after you've completed all the Tier 1 objectives (you may need to wait for enough event currency to do that) and if you have the talent "Doing it Again" purchased.

The first new Crusader is Willy the Weregoat, who stamps his hooves into place as he swaps with the Princess. Don't let him near any paperwork, unless you don't want it anymore. He really likes the taste. But he'll play nice and buff your Crusaders!



New Crusader: Willy the Weregoat


At level 50, Willy the Weregoat unlocks Reciprocation, which buffs adjacent Crusaders DPS by 10% per formation ability affecting Willy. The bonus is additive.

At level 400, Willy unlocks Play Nicest, which buffs Reciprocation by 100%, which means you get a 20% bonus per buff.

The second new Tier 2 Crusader is The Exchange Student. As a new student, she's easy to free from the demonic influence and join your adventures, swapping with Thalia the Thunder King. She's shy but confident, which makes for an interesting combination.



New Crusader: The Exchange Student


Once recruited, The Exchange Student unlocks Lightning Drake at level 50, which allows you to use Storm Rider.

At level 150, The Exchange Student gets the upgrade Class President, which buffs the DPS of the Crusaders in the column behind her by 50% of your current Storm Rider buff.

Once you've recruited both Willy and The Exchange Student, there are three new side objectives to tackle in your quest.



New Objective: Class Garden

In Class Garden, Arnie has forgotten to water the cacti and now the dehydrated plants want revenge. For every 10 you kill, a raging cactus will spawn to avenge his fallen comrades, and you'll have to fight them off until you beat area 400.



New Objective: Class Pets

In Class Pets, you need to escort the class hamster, turtle and snake to area 450, while they take up spots in your formation and change positions every 50 areas.



New Objective: Class Dismissed

In Class Dismissed, school is out and so are your Crusaders. Every 50 areas an entire bench slot gets dismissed and is no longer available to use, as you head to area 500 in this objective.

Equipment for all the Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Educational chests, but tier 2 Crusaders gear will only be unlocked once you've recruited them.

You'll have until September 26th at Noon PDT to complete the event.

Idle Champions Now in Early Access 

VICTORIA, BC – Sept 7, 2017 - Codename Entertainment is proud to announce that Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms is now available in Early Access on Steam. Gamers and Dungeons & Dragons fans around the world can begin their quest on PC and Mac today.

Idle Champions is an idle clicker game where players must assemble and organize a party of Champions and master the art of Formation Strategy. Players unlock new Champions, upgrade them to reveal special abilities, and collect epic gear. The key to success is learning how to combine each Champion's abilities to maximize damage or the amount of gold earned. Only then can the player defeat an onslaught of increasingly powerful monsters.

As players upgrade Champions, they choose specializations to increase their power further. Specializations need deep strategic thinking by the player as one specialization may increase the power of an ability but at the cost of another ability. Choices are permanent until the player completes each adventure.

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms, the world's first idle clicker game set in the celebrated universe of the Forgotten Realms. The game is the award-winning studio's first licensed video game in partnership with Dungeons & Dragons.

Key Features:

Unlock Renowned Champions
Collect renowned Champions from the world of Dungeons & Dragons, including fan-favourites from the Force Grey series. Unlock more Champions and gear to add to your party that will be added to the game in limited-time events after launch.

Formation Strategy
Mastering the position of each Champion to maximize their special abilities is the key to completing each adventure. Each Champion's abilities and gear requires careful thought to create the best combination. Only the most powerful formations will defeat the waves of Dungeons & Dragons monsters.

Explore the Forgotten Realms
Take your Champions on a journey through the Sword Coast. Players will be able to explore familiar locations within the Forgotten Realms as they tackle each adventure. After launch, the game will be updated with content inspired by the official Dungeons & Dragons adventures, starting with a trip to Chult with the Tomb of Annihilation.

Regular Events
The game is updated regularly with limited-time events. Completing events unlocks new Champions and gear to add to the player's collection.
