via GIPHY

New Tier Two Crusader: Danni, the Daring Damsel

The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Danni, the Daring Damsel who doesn't need to rely on anyone else to get herself out of trouble. Even if she ends up getting in trouble a lot.

At level 100, Danni unlocks Eye Candy which buffs the DPS of all Male Crusaders by 50%.

At level 150, her ability Penny in Your Pocket increases the Gold Find +10% additively for each Male Crusader in the formation.

New Tier Two Crusader: Polly the Parrot

Polly, the Parrot, is the trusty animal sidekick who's always on hand for those comedic moments when heroes are locked in a cell and need a key. Also, he has some wicked one-liners, which kids will be quoting long after the adventure finishes. Probably.

At level 50, Polly unlocks Got a Cracker!, an ability makes monsters move 500% faster.

Polly unlocks Instant Regret at level 150 and monsters that are attacking the formation will then take extra damage.

After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Danni and Polly, there are three new side stories in the form of Tier Two objectives to complete.

New Tier Two Objective: Aliens? Really?

In Aliens? Really?, a set of alien monsters with various effects attack your formation all the way to area 400.

New Tier Two Objective: The Holy Grail.

In the objective, The Holy Grail, every 25 areas one of your Crusaders will attempt to drink from a Grail. The wrong one will permanently disable that Crusader seat past that level. You'll probably choose poorly until area 450.

New Tier Two Objective: Ghosts of the Ancients.

The final new Tier Two objective is Ghosts of the Ancients. Speedy spooky invulnerable ghosts of an ancient Mayan civilization attack your formation all the way to area 500.

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Hidden Temple Jeweled Chests. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

You'll have until May 30th at Noon PDT to complete the event.

New 2017 Pet Packs (Coming Soon!)



Post your green thumb adventures and questions on the forum!

The event will run until Friday May 19th at Noon PDT!

Frequently Asked Questions

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

  • How do I grow plants?
    There are the planters outside the garden to grow flowers in. If you click on them, you can see the plant store. Each plant has a different cost and grow time to get you your event progress points. You start with 4 free planters.

  • Is it good to buy extra planters for growing the plants?
    If you have the seeds to spare and prefer to plant long-growing plants, then yes, it’s worth it.

  • How do I get the Decorator achievement?
    If you go into the gardening area, the store button ($) has a selection of garden decorating items, where you can find the planter styles and watering can. These items also cost seeds.

  • What are the possible seed combinations for Farmer MacDonald’s quest?
    You can choose seeds that grow either Energy or Gold, and then choose between 20, 15, 4, and 3 hours of growth time.

  • Why do my custom seeds cost Gold to plant?
    You created the combination, which is unlocked until they expire. Just like normal plants, they cost Gold for planting. We don't award a flat number of seeds, because not all players have the same amount of farm plots. This way, you get to choose how many you end up growing. :)
  • Why don’t my custom seeds last longer?
    Because they're OP! Enjoy them while they last. :)

  • How do I please the judges?
    Just keep growing plants. As your event progress increases, you will impress the judges more and more. You DO NOT need to place them in your garden if you don't wish to. The plants still count for progress.

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

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Growing plants worth points and completing the side quests. To get the points from your plants, you don't even need to place them in your garden! Just grow them!

  • 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.

Gardeners of the Galaxy 2017 

I am Broot. Plus, the giant galaxy destroying plant is back, so there's that. Nate and the gang require more help to defeat the interplanetary flora interloper. Two new Tier Two Crusaders need to be recruited during this updated event.

Gardeners of the Galaxy event runs from today through to May 9th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Broot and Robbie the Raccoon to your roster.

Two new Tier Two Crusaders are also available to unlock once you've completed the Tier One objectives: Spaceking and Grandmora.

New Tier Two Crusader: Spaceking.

The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Spaceking who'd put Zapp Brannigan to shame with his lascivious behaviour and penchant for melodrama.

At level 150, his ability Kirkin' It Up increases his DPS +100% for every alien Crusader in the same formation.

At level 400, Spaceking unlocks Avenger which increases his DPS +100% for each dead Crusader in the formation.

New Tier Two Crusader: Grandmora.

Grandmora is the ageing grandmother of intergalactic being, Thermos. She's an expert in knitting warm, ugly clothes and her insistence on feeding the other Crusaders makes her an ideal support Crusader.

At level 50, Grandmora unlocks Still Suspicious, an ability that Buffs all Crusaders in the column in front of her by 200%, divided by the number of Crusaders in the column behind her.

Grandmora unlocks Untrusting at level 150, the ability buffs all Crusaders in the column behind her by 50%, multiplied by the number of Crusaders in the column in front of her.

After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Spaceking and Grandmora, there are three galaxy-sized new Tier Two objectives to complete.

New Tier Two Objective: Out of Control.

In Out of Control, a rapidly growing plant starts in just one formation slot, but spreads to a new formation slot every 50 areas, eventually encompassing all formation slots until you beat area 400.

New Tier Two Objective: Raid.

In the objective, Raid, two clouds of toxic spray float around the formation, moving to a random adjacent slot every 10 seconds. The Crusaders in the affected slots have their DPS reduced to zero and formation abilities disabled.

New Tier Two Objective: Slow and Steady.

The final new Tier Two objective is Slow and Steady. Every time a monster is killed, every Crusader in your formation takes 5% of their max health as damage. They naturally heal 20% damage every 5 seconds all the way to area 500.

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Gardener's Jeweled Chests. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

You'll have until May 9th at Noon PDT to complete the event.

FAQ

How do I participate in the Easter Egg Hunt?
Talk to the NPC under the Easter Egg Hunt banner to be teleported to the hunting zone.

What do I do in the Easter Egg Hunt zone?
Click on all the crates, barrels, rocks and bushes trying to find as many eggs as you can. There are only 20 eggs hidden in all the doodads.

How do I get a perfect score in the Easter Egg Hunt?
You need to collect all 20 eggs - basically not letting any of the other hunters find any.

I’m too slow at the Hunt. How can I be better?
The NPC with the wizard hat in the event area of the Commons sells boosts for Easter Tokens. Speed up your character and distract the other hunters with his wares. Also, travel in a circle, starting in the area closest to where everyone else is being distracted. And don't click on the searchable items themselves, click beside them. Clicking on the item causes you to walk slower.

When will the last quest unlock?
All quests will be unlocked by the 10th day of the event.

What contributes to my 100% progress?
Turning in the Unpainted Eggs, the Dye and the Wax as well as completing the Easter Egg Hunt and the quests for the folks in the event area.

Why do I want to ask friends for help?
It increases the amount of progress you get from doing a turn-in.

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 the achievements available and how to get them?
Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

When can I do the World Wide Easter Egg Hunt?
The World Wide Easter Egg Hunt starts on Easter Sunday - April 16th - and lasts for the rest of the event.

Where do I find World Wide Easter Egg Hunt Eggs?
Once the hunt has started, you can find eggs by clicking them in many of the zones in the world. Eggs are hidden behind rocks and trees and in tricky to access locations in normal zones, secret areas, and adventure zones all over the world. Not every area has an egg hidden in it. There are 75 eggs hidden throughout the world in total, but you'll need to be done most of the content in the game to find them all.

Nate's Candy Conundrum 2017  

It's that time of year again where you don't eat chocolate, chocolate eats you! Nates' reset ability fails again, sending the Crusaders into a parallel universe of demonic candy.

Nate's Candy Conundrum event runs from today through to April 18th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Alan the Archangel and RoboRabbit to your roster.

Of course, as this is a 2017 update of the original event you can also collect two new Crusaders: Baenarall, Angel of Hope, and Sisaron the Dragon Sorceress.

New Tier Two Crusader: Baenarall, Angel of Hope.

The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Baenarall. She's a powerful character who brings some awesome DPS buffs to the Crusaders.

At level 150, her ability Diversity increases the global DPS +20% per Unique Tag in the formation but minus 5% for each duplicate tag Crusader (all additive) (ie. male, male, human, animal = 60% for 3 unique tags - 5% for extra male = 55%).

At level 400, Baenarall unlocks The Old Guard which increases the global DPS +5% for each non-event Crusader in the formation.

New Tier Two Crusader: Sisaron the Dragon Sorcereress.

Sisaron, the Dragon Sorceress, is one scaly badass with the dual awesomeness of being both magic-wielding and a Dragon!

At level 50, Sisaron unlocks Loose Magic, an ability that increases the DPS of adjacent Crusaders by 100%, divided by the number of adjacent Crusaders. At level 400 Sisaron's Sharpened Claws Crit Chance +3%.

After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Baenarall and Sisaron, there are three more diabetes-inducing objectives to conquer.

New Tier Two Objective: Sugar Rush.

In Sugar Rush the monster spawn speed is increased but the area requirements are more than halved as the sugar kicks in. You must reach area 400 in under 90 minutes.

New Tier Two Objective: Evil Eggs.

In the objective, Evil Eggs, evil looking embryonic candy monsters attack your formation and have various abilities. You must figure out their secret weaknesses to reach area 450.

New Tier Two Objective: Chocolate Rain.

The final new Tier Two objective is Chocolate Rain. In non-boss areas, chocolate rain falls from the sky every few seconds, damaging a random Crusader for 40% of their HP. You must weather (boom-boom-tish!) the sticky downpour all the way to area 500.

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Easter Jeweled Chests. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

You'll have until April 18th at Noon PDT to complete the event. We hope you have an 'egg-sllent' time. *heh hem*

BW2: 2017 St. Patrick's Celebration! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Bushwhackers!

The Commons is greener than usual! That’s because the Commons Party Planning Committee is putting on a St. Patrick’s day party!

Unfortunately, the guests of honour seem to have gotten lost in the bushes. Go whack them up and help them find their way to the Event Area!

There are eight Leprechauns to whack up that will help you put on a rocking St. Patrick’s Day party! Every day the event goes on, the odds to whack them up gets larger, so you can get them all before it ends. Three of them will have turn-in stations for you to do and the others will have repeatable quests for you to do for event progress.

Unlocking throughout the event are previous year quest lines:

Mr. Keith is looking to put out his special brew again. Help him find the ingredients.

Seamus is in the mood to do some whacking of his own, but first he needs your help to make the perfect shillelagh.

Siobhan is throwing her version of an Irish Feast...but the dishes got lost in the bushes. Go find them for her!

Those poor snakes are tired of being whacked so often. Help their leader out by setting up his snake relocation program efforts.

Help Bree learn about Irish mythology!

New for 2017:

We added two new quest lines this year! Mr. Keith has some competition, and a new leprechaun friend has a fun little task for you! They will unlock as the event goes on.

FAQ

What are the different leprechauns?
You can whack up two types of leprechauns: hatted and non-hatted.
  • There are 8 hatted ones to find, 3 will unlock turn-in stations, and the other 5 will give you daily quests. You must manually whack these ones to capture them.

  • The non-hatted ones will drop items for you to turn into the turn-in stations. You can quick whack and mana whack non-hatted leprechauns when they appear if you wish. The non-hatted leprechauns will *always* drop some turn-in items, rather than just having a chance to.


How can I find the leprechauns?
Just keep whacking. You could whack them all up in a day if you wanted to. The odds to whack up hatted leprechauns will increase as the event goes on.

What adds to my event progress?
Turning in items to the Gold, Beer and Clover stations, and doing quests for folks in the event area.

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.

Why should I ask for friends to help boost turn-ins?
It increases the amount of progress you get from doing a turn-in.

Hermit's Premature Party 2017 

Suggesting the Washed-up Hermit likes a tipple, is like saying there was a small snafu for Best Picture at the Oscars this year. It's a massive understatement. Hermit can't wait until St. Patrick's Day, so he's celebrating early again this year.

Hermit's Premature Party event runs from today through to March 14th at Noon PST. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Larry and Kyle to your roster.

Of course, as this is a 2017 update of the original event you can also collect two new Crusaders: Snickette the Sneaky and Squiggles the Clown.

New Tier Two Crusader: Snickette the Sneaky.

The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Snickette the Sneaky. The sneaky leprechaun shares the same seat as Sarah the Collector. At level 100, her ability Favorite Prey increases the DPS of human Crusaders in the party by +50%.

At level 400, Snickette unlocks The Blame Game which increases the DPS of all Crusaders by +50% if there is more than one leprechaun in the formation.

New Tier Two Crusader: Squiggles the Clown.

Squiggles the Clown is the stuff of nightmares until you've unlocked him and then he becomes less scary and whole lot more useful. At level 100, he unlocks Royal Past ability where it increases his DPS +150% but minus 25% for every Royal Crusader in the formation (0% with six Royal Crusaders in the formation). At level 400 his Receptive Audience ability increases his DPS +200% when adjacent to at least two Humans.

After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Snickette and Squiggles, there are three more objectives to conquer (after a few more drinks, naturally).

New Tier Two Objective: Party Animals... er, Humans.

In Party Animals... er, Humans only Human and Leprechaun Crusaders are available all the way to area 400.

New Tier Two Objective: Drunk Too Much.

In the objective, Drunk Too Much the Crusaders are starting to feel worse for wear. Pink Elephants appear but can't be killed (and don't block spawns, by the way). You must reach area 450 before you can get some water to sober up a bit.

New Tier Two Objective: Wicked Hangover.

The final new Tier Two objective is Wicked Hangover. Two formation slots have their formation abilities and DPS disabled; the two affected slots change every ten areas!

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in St. Patrick's Jeweled Chests. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

You'll have until March 14th at Noon PST to complete the event. Cheers!

Help him choose a girl that can put up with his antics, and help the one he doesn't pick get over her grief with some Ice Cream daily quests until it's time to help Nate’s rejected girl through the 5 stages of grief. All five quests will unlock right after each other and then she will have a new daily quest for you.

Once the Valentine's dance has started, you get to look for the partner of your choice to share a moment on the dance floor.
