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!

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.

Highharvestide Event! 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Welcome to our first ever event for Idle Champions! Today we launch Highharvestide, a new limited-time adventure that will run from today until Noon PDT Tuesday October 10th 2017.

The Champions find themselves called to the aid of innocent citizens of the Sword Coast. Bandits are causing trouble for farmers attempting to bring in their harvests in the fertile lands near Triboar. The party must investigate, traveling from farm to farm to put a stop to it.



Successfully completing the first part of the adventure will unlock a brand new Champion, Stoki. Born Stami Gackle, she fled her home after a terrible accident at a young age and joined a monastery of the Even Hand to study ki. An adept monk and extremely capable adventurer, her thoughtful approach to problems has earned her a reputation as an uncommonly stoic Rock Gnome.


She is a flexible addition to the Champions. Her specializations enable her to either focus on damage or a support role within your preferred formation.

Stoki will introduce you to a new level strategic thinking when it comes to the make-up of your party. She shares the same slot as Jarlaxle and so your first order is to decide whether you use Jarlaxle or Stoki on different adventures.

How do I play the Highharvestide Event?

The Highharvestide Event is a brand new temporary campaign with a single adventure and three variants. You can start the adventures from the Campaign Map just like you would any other adventure, except that you must spend Event Tokens (Harvest Baskets) to start them. The base adventure will unlock a new Champion, and the variants and free play provide chests that can be used to gear up the Champion. When the event ends, you keep the new Champion, any gear you have acquired for them, and a gain a boost to your permanent campaign favor.


How do I get more Event Tokens (Harvest Baskets)?

Event Tokens will drop periodically from monsters in all adventures and campaigns. You will also receive Event Tokens along with your offline gold gains when you load the game after having been offline for a while.


How do I use the new Champion I've unlocked?

Once you complete the event's base adventure, you can swap in the new Champion you've unlocked by clicking on the portrait of whomever they swap with, then clicking the swap button the top-right corner of their portrait on their character sheet. You can only have one Champion from each bench slot in your formation at a time.

How do I gear up the new Champion I've unlocked?

Equipment for event champions appear in event-specific chests. They cannot receive gear from normal silver or gold chests. You can earn event chests by completing event variants, the event free play, or by purchasing them directly for Event Tokens.


Why is the Chauntea's Favor in the event different from the base campaign Divine Favor?

In order to provide a more balanced experience for all players, each event has a different type of Divine Favor, which means everyone starts on relatively even footing. You still have your gear, unlocked Champions, and experience with formations to give you an advantage over newer players. The divine favor for the Highharvestide event is Chauntea's favor.

What happens to my Event Divine Favor after the event ends?

Once the event ends you'll have an opportunity to convert your Event Divine Favor into a different deity's Divine Favor for the campaign of your choice, so your hard earned Event Divine Favor will not go to waste. The more Divine Favor you earn in the event, the bigger the amount you earn for your permanent campaign.

Equipment to upgrade Stoki can be found in the special Stoki Silver and Gold chests. Don't forget you'll have until October 10th at Noon PDT to complete the event and unlock Stoki before the event closes.

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.
August 24th
Updated Event! Dr. Evil's Summer Sabotage

Dr. Evil's Summer Sabotage event runs from today through to September 5th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Veronica and Bubba to your roster.

Two new Tier 2 Crusaders, The Goldhound and Milgrid, the Mining Mage, will be available to recruit after you've completed all the Tier 1 objectives and if you have the talent "Doing it Again" purchased.

New Crusader: The Goldhound.


At level 100, The Goldhound unlocks Gold Nose gives you +10% Gold Find for each monster killed, up to a cap of 200%. Plus he has gear to augment it!

At level 400, The Goldhound unlocks Tail Wag gives you +100% Gold Find for the first 15 seconds in each area.

The second new Tier 2 Crusader is Milgrid, the Mining Mage.

New Crusader: Milgrid, the Mining Mage.

At level 400, her ability Deepest Mining will give We've Got To Go Deeper a 100% boost!

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

New Objective: The Great Heist.

In The Great Heist, two of Dr. Evil's masked robbers join your formation and nab quest item drops for themselves until you beat area 400.

New Objective: Gold Medal In Evil.

In the objective Gold Medal In Evil, Dr. Evil slowly replaces your formation with not-very-convincing clones of your Crusaders, each of which take up a slot and causes your global DPS to drop by 50% multiplicatively. A new clone appears in your formation every 50 areas.

New Objective: Dr. Evil Unleashed.

The final new objective is Dr. Evil Unleashed. A super powerful Dr. Evil robot spawns randomly. It attacks via a ranged laser cannon. It heals itself and all monsters and takes reduced damage.

A staple of any summer carnival or fair, are those devilish carnival games. There are four different games which will unlock over the course of the event and they include "Balloon Popper," "Whack-A-Mole," "Baseball Throw," and "Duck Shoot." Don't worry, there's no skill involved with these games, you play them automatically when you interact with them.

- You receive Carnival Tokens based on how well you do. Now, we're not saying they're rigged in the Carnival's favour or anything, but you'll definitely want to ask your friends to help you rig these games to help you! (Platforms without Friend functionality are balanced accordingly.)

To get started, the Balloon Popper game is unlocked! As well, it seems William needs your help to satisfy his sweet-tooth!

Help them all cool off!

Peat Bog, Pete the Carney's brother has some tasks for you to help him put on a show!

New for 2017
We've added new quests to the event! Peat Bog has another show to put on, if you helped him last year. Plus, that Dunk Tank is looking a little dirty. Help clean it daily once those quests unlock!

And how are your Power collection skills? Are you strong enough to win all the bonus prizes?

  • What contributes to my 100% progress?
    You need 200 plays of any combo of the games to get 100%. Just whack up tickets to play the games, and turn in quests to get tickets as well.

    Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

  • Where can I see progress on the Dunking Achievement?
