BW2: Halloween Event 2017 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hallowe'en is Coming to Bushwhackia!

Who doesn't love a good haunted mansion? Well, that's what Hallowe'en in Bushwhackia is all about! But to decorate your very own, you need to do what you do best! Go out into the world and whack bushes to find Pumpkins. Once you have found a patch of pumpkins, you can buy decorations from Glenda outside the mansion, or from the "Store" button while you're in Build Mode inside. Once you feel you've got enough, start laying out your design inside. (You can also purchase the same decorations for Bush Bucks from the Cop in the event area.)

You do not have to place all your collected decorations on display in the Mansion in order for them to count towards "Hallowe'en Collector," they will count so long as they are within your haunted house inventory.

The goal is to scare the pants off the 8 children standing in front of the house, all of varying levels of bravery. The more you scare them, the more candy you'll earn in return. And you're going to want that candy so you can trade it for the custom items at the event store! You can try scaring them every 20 hours after you scared them the first time.

Glenda the Good Witch isn't just for buying decorations with Pumpkins. You will also be getting several quests from her throughout the event for special interactive decorations. As you complete each of her four quests, you can request help from your friends* by talking to the Construction Worker to increase the decoration's scariness.

*Platforms which do not support Friend Lists will have an adjusted static scariness.

The Haunted Mansion Photo Contest will be starting soon!

Gotta Collect them all!

What can possibly make your house scarier? How about some Creatures which wander around your mansion! Each creature will become available for a set amount of dates which you can then request from friends* by talking to the the Cop.

Creatures are available on the following schedule:
Black Cats - AVAILABLE at Event launch, UNTIL Sun Oct 22, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Witches - AVAILABLE Sun Oct 22, Noon PDT UNTIL Tues Oct 24, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Zombies - AVAILABLE Tues Oct 24, Noon PDT UNTIL Thurs Oct 26, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Bats - AVAILABLE Thurs Oct 26, Noon PDT UNTIL Sat Oct 28, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Spiders - AVAILABLE Sat Oct 28, Noon PDT UNTIL Mon Oct 30, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Ghost Butler - AVAILABLE Mon Oct 30, Noon PDT UNTIL Wed Nov 1, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Franken-Dogs - AVAILABLE Wed Nov 1, Noon PDT UNTIL Event End

*Platforms which do not support Friends Lists can receive a single creature for free as they become available, by speaking to the Cop. The Sparkly Vampire is still available for Bush Bucks if you want it in your haunted house.

Candy! Candy! Candy!

To buy the custom items, you need your Candy! Not only do you get it from scaring those insolent little kiddies, you also net some from completing the various quests given to you by the Halloween NPCs hanging out in the event area!

Plus from Monday October 31st until the end of the event, you can hunt down denizens of Bushwhackia and Trick-or-Treat with them for Candy goodness! There will be a spooky character standing in front of a pile of Candy in each of the major areas! So 1 in the Mysterious Forest, 1 in the Shady Detour, etc. NPCs have been added up to the Spine of the World!

New for 2017:
Halloween is all about pets! We've added another quest to assemble a pet. Plus, each kid will have a one-time only quest to help them, that gets you extra candy!

Pet Packs for 2017- COMING SOON!

Post your Hallowe'en scariness and questions on the forum!

The event will run until Friday November 3rd at Noon PDT!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I find the Pumpkins?
    Just keep whacking. The Holiday Item runes and pets will help attract them as well.

  • How do I decorate my Mansion?
    You need to whack up Pumpkins. You can buy decorations from Glenda in the event area, or from the Store when you're in Build mode inside the Mansion. Once you have decorations, you can place them like you're decorating your ranch using Build mode.

  • How do I scare the Kids?
    Just keep buying decorations and getting friends to up the scare level of your interactive decorations. As your event progress increases, you will scare the kids more and more. As well, when you reach a certain level of scariness, the kids will elect to no longer tour your house.

  • Does the Timey-Wimey watch or Time Turner affect the Kids?
    No, the kids do not have quest cooldowns, so trinket effects that work for quests will not apply to them.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Making your mansion as scary as possible by buying decorations (but you don't have to place them all.)

  • 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.

Updated Event! Carnival of Sorrows 2017  

The Carnival of Sorrows arrives in Crusaders of the Lost Idols once again, bringing twisted new objectives to complete and a new Crusader to unlock.

We are now entering our third year for Crusaders, and in order to celebrate the occasion this year’s Carnival of Sorrows is our first event featuring a Tier 3 Crusader to unlock and add to your roster.

That's on top of having the chance to add both the original Crusaders for new players to unlock as well as two Tier 2 Crusaders from last year!

New Tier 3 Crusader: Chiyome.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't already collected them, you can unlock Crusaders Pete, the Carney, and Mister, the Monkey by completing the first two Tier One objectives. Then you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Mindy, the Mime and The Half-Blood Elf by completing the first two Tier Two objectives, once you've cleared the rest of the Tier 1 objectives, and if you have the Doing It Again Talent purchased.

Four New Objectives!


New Tier 3 Objective: Be A Man.


Be A Man | Only male Crusaders and Chiyome can be used until you beat area 650.

New Tier 3 Objective: Best In Show.


Best In Show | Prized Livestock attacks the formation, each with a different ability until you beat area 650.

New Tier 3 Objective: Fair Food.


Fair Food | Your Crusaders are hungry and unable to do any damage! Luckily, a food cart in the formation is here to help, feeding two Crusaders at random every 10 seconds, causing them to become sated enough to do DPS for 20 seconds.

New Tier 3 Objective: The Creepiest Carnival.


The Creepiest Carnival | Our final new objective is The Creepiest Carnival. A Creepy Clown has taken up a slot in the formation. Every 100 areas a new clown appears, until all the slots are gone by area 800.

Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Carnival Event Chests, which you can earn from objectives or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders and free play will drop all-tier chests. Gear for the Tier 2 and 3 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusader. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop.

You'll have until October 17th at Noon PDT to complete this dark and demonic event before the Carnival packs up for another year.
