Hi Whackers!

There's a visitor in the Commons that could use a hand! Be sure to chat with them for a limited time opportunity. Be quick, as they're only staying till Noon Pacific on Monday June 18th.

This weekend we're also running a Pet/Mount Sale and a Bush Buck Sale! Grab those cute little friends you've been missing!

Plus, for a limited time only you can get a Steampunk themed mount with your first purchase of 100 Bush Bucks or more!

Summer Sport Fun in the Sun

It's time to help the Bushwhackia Pee-Wee league coaches! They need supplies to help whip their various teams into shape and take home the AAA championship trophies! Whack them up in the bushes, starting with soccer balls and water bottles! Plus, the first coach needs some Jerseys!

Claire, the clerk from the Town Hall, needs your help to discover information about a local sports Legend! The stages of this quest will unlock throughout the event. If you completed this quest last year or the year before, different quests will replace the original ones, sending you out in the world to find more sporting memorabilia.

COTLI: Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 3 

An unrelenting, enormous cosmic plant is slowly consuming the cosmos. Twice before you've faced this foe and (seemingly) won. Perhaps all you really needed was the right wrestler to step into the ring...

Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 3 runs until Tuesday, June 5th at 12:00pm PDT. For more information, check out the How to Play / FAQ in-game! I am Broot.

New Tier 3 Crusader: Rex the Wrestler

He's big, he's buff, he's shirtless and purple-skinned: Rex the Wrestler has joined Crusaders of the Lost Idols! Rex is a male support Crusader who takes trophies from slain enemies, occasionally selling them on the black market to enable buffs for the party. And did we mention the body paint? Also we're pretty sure he's invisible.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Broot and Robbie Raccoon by completing the respective Tier One objectives. I am Broot. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Spaceking and Grandmora, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit Rex the Wrestler | Rex the Wrestler takes up a slot in the formation. He moves around every 25 areas and buffs global DPS by 100% for each Champion from the Gardeners of the Galaxy event in the formation. Reach area 500.

  • Just Plain Crazy | Only those Crusaders with a penchant for insanity can be used: Hermit, Princess, Khouri, Merci, Nate, Pete, Momma Kaine, Kyle, Metal Soldierette, Broot, Robbie, Ilsa, Mindy, Cindy, Squiggles, Spaceking, Grandmora, Thoonoose, and of course, Rex. Reach area 600.

  • Mix Tape | Enemy Cassette Tapes attack the formation, each "playing" a different song debuff. Debuffs last until the cassette is killed. All cassettes survive for at least 1 second. Reach area 650.

  • Potted Garden | Three slots in the formation are taken up by potted plants, each one debuffing you in some way. Reach area 700.

  • Bug Out | Bug enemies spawn randomly, and each time one is killed, it reduces the DPS of a random Crusader by 50% for 60 seconds and creates a glowing purple cloud over them. This effect stacks additively if it the same Crusader is chosen multiple times. Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Gardeners Jeweled Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. I am Broot. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop all-tier chests. I am Broot. 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 Tuesday, June 5th at 12:00pm PDT to complete Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 3!

Quality of Life and Fixes Update! (May 18th, 2018)

- Quest Hubs now have their own Area Progress dialogs, and their completion is tracked on the world map.

- Added tooltips to completed quests/items/achievements on the Area Progress dialog that shows their name.

- Added the “Sonic Excavating Yard Stick” trinket to the Glaucous Quarries artifact store, which when equipped draws circles around your last 3 digs in a quarry, indicating the max possible range the treasure might be from that spot. Makes digging much easier!

- Fixed an issue with leaving the new quarry area when you have a particle emitting (flowers, etc.) custom item equipped. (Which means you’d see a “Loading Graphics... “ popup that never went away when trying to leave the quarry until you reloaded the game.)

- Added a diggergy bar toggle button, visible when you’ve got a Geo-Pick trinket equipped, that lets you show/hide the diggergy bar when you’re not in a quarry or picking up diggergy.

- Moved a normal banana by the Old Bazaar field in Cera Altepetl Proper so that it’s away from the whacking buttons.

- Fixed store item costs getting covered up if the amount was greater than 4 or 5 digits long (depending on the icon).

- Store item cost tooltips now show amount as well as name.

- Added 4 more trivia questions to the Amicus Isle Trivia Time quest (April 13th):
- “What activity can you do on Amicus Isle during the Patriot Event?”
- "On what major continent is the Snowy Mountain region?"
- "What organization did the Black Hole pet raise money for?"
- "What is the name of the Commons’ resident trinketeer?"

- Added music to the tropical island zones.

- Added the “Shiny” effect to Hellvin NPC since his player counterpart has acquired the Flux Tier 10 Super Trinket. Thanks for all the reports, Hellvin!

- Fixed various reported typos and quest descriptions. Keep the reports coming!

- Fixed the Amber Orb getting left in your inventory after completing the Amber Walking Staff. Speak to Copal again in Cera Altepetl Proper to have it removed if you’ve still got one!

- Runes of Charity now require yellow, black, white, and dark grey powder vials to craft. This rune has proven very valuable, so we’ve added black and dark grey powders to its crafting costs in an attempt to rebalance it.

- Fixed diggergy causing nothings to never drop.

- Moved the Port-Co teleporter in the Glaucous Quarries so it’s not close to the Power/Mana Dig buttons when in the Deep Quarry.

- Planned a new mechanic for the quarry digging mini-game to make it easier and more fun to play. Coming Soon!

- Fixed various reported typos and quest descriptions. Keep the reports coming!
