BW2: Thankful Thanksgiving Event 2017 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Thanksgiving Time!

The residents of The Commons are preparing for a massive feast to celebrate the end of harvest season, and of course they need your expertise at finding things in bushes!

First and foremost, it's all about helping the chefs fill their food stations to the brim - and beyond. There's three of them for three types of meals, so you'll be collecting Meat, Veggies and of course Deserts to feed the hungry masses of Bushwhackia! Can you make all the Pristine Food? Keep doing turn-ins to achieve it!

On the subject of food - four of the guests have promised they would bring a dish to share, but they've forgotten ingredients.

And then, there's the problem of the Turkeys. Apparently, they need to be rescued in some fashion, so you'll need to get on that. You have the whole event to complete it.

Once again we're celebrating other harvest festivals around the world and hosting an inflatable surprise. They'll unlock as the event goes on. And tune in on Thanksgiving (or after, if you're enjoying your day off), for a fun show!

Of course, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the Black Friday questline introduced last year, and a fridge to store all those leftovers!

New for 2017:
We've added one new quest line this year. Nate is up to something. Help him out once his quest begins.

Plus we've updated the goals required for the ribbons and 100% award, since there are so many quests that award event progress, and added some new quests to the Other Harvest Festivals quest line!

Event Achievements - POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!

Achievements Returning in 2017:
  • Special Order - You helped all of the people prepare their special dishes.
  • Master of the Ways - You have helped cook each dish excellently for the pristine table.

Emo's New Moon, Year 3!

Today we unveil our second Tier 3 event: Emo's New Moon! This year's event update includes a very unique new Crusader, Viktor the Vampire, whose support abilities are based upon the tags of those around him. We hope you enjoy him, and the 4 other new objectives available this year!

Emo's New Moon runs until Tuesday, November 7th at noon PST. For more information, check out the How to Play / FAQ in-game!

New Tier 3 Crusader: Viktor the Vampire

Viktor the Vampire is a buffer that converts adjacent Crusaders into vampires, granting them supernatural abilities and additional effects.

Crusaders Return

Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Henry, The Scaredy-Ghoul, and Fright-o-tron 4000 and Development by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Four New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Bloody Mess | Every time a monster is killed, it leaves a blood puddle on the ground which slowly creeps towards the formation, dealing damage to the front-most Crusaders for 25% of their max hp. Reach area 600!

  • Witching Hour | Three witches on brooms take up three slots in your formation, debuffing the DPS of adjacent Crusaders. Every 100 areas they change positions. Reach area 650!

  • Infection | Every time you enter a non-boss area, one random Crusader in your formation gets an Infection, causing them to do no DPS and disabling their Formation Abilities. Every 6 seconds, the Infection spreads. Reach area 700!

  • Full Moon | Every 50 Areas the DPS of all Crusaders is reduced by 75% (multiplicative), except for Emo Werewolf, whose DPS is increased by 25% (multiplicative). Reach area 750!

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Halloween Jeweled 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 Tuesday, November 7th at Noon PST to complete Emo's New Moon this year!

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.

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.

Dog Days of Summer 2017 Edition 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer

The residents of the Commons want to close out summer with a blast! That big old event field sits there empty most of the time anyways. Help them build an awesome temporary pool to chill out beside. Once you've completed all three building quests, the residents will come in and there will be 3 turn-in stations where you can bring Towels, Sunscreen and Life Rings to get event tokens for buying this year's custom items!

Nate's New Puppies!
Plus, foster an adorable puppy for Nate. It seems he's accidentally ordered too many dogs (again!!) and needs your help to look after them temporarily. Choose one of the 3 to help him out! Once you equip your dog, Nate has some daily quests for you to do to keep the ball of energy that is your puppy occupied. Love the look of the dog? Permanently adopt it with a simple purchase!



New for 2017!
We've added a whole new area of fun for you to experiment with. Check out the Companion Racing Track once it becomes available, and you'll be able to bet on pet races! You can only win the prizes once per day though.
