BW2: 2018 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 2018:

There's a new colour of Leprechaun showing up on the Rainbow's End them out when they do!

If you can complete the event, you'll earn this awesome 100% reward statue!

Event Achievements -- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT

There are a total of EIGHTEEN possible achievements to earn in the St. Patrick’s Day 2018 event.

Post your comments and questions here!


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.

BW2: Generation 8 Pets Now Available! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Gotta find 'em all! A new selection of cute and scaly critters are now available to be your companions!

Those weirdly random abandoned eggs scattered all over Bushwachkia have been switched up and all new pets are ready to hatch when you accept the "Find an Egg" quest from Misty. She will also have all the Generation 8 eggs available to purchase for Bush Bucks during the "Find an Egg" quest.

Other changes to Misty and Hank for Generation 8:
  • Misty will no longer let players abandon Gen 7 pet eggs that they are hatching (they're now too rare). Only current generation pet eggs can be abandoned during hatching. Please note that if you're in the middle of hatching a pet, then that egg will still hatch into whatever pet it would have been before.

  • Generation 7 pet eggs can now be found in Quester's Satchels (with the same limitations as the Generation 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 eggs, which will still be available in satchels as well.) Generation 7 pet eggs are now more expensive to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store.

  • Hank now sells a random assortment of hatched level 1 Generation 8 pets (instead of Generation 7) for Bush Bucks in his pet store.

PAGAS changes for Generation 8:
  • Generation 8 pet eggs are available to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store, once you have hatched at least five (5) Generation 8 pets.

  • The Pet Progress dialog now includes Generation 8 pets. Another 10 new pets that all players can unlock!

And now, without further ado, the information you've all been waiting for:

Generation 8 Pets:
  • Archaeopteryx
  • Bandicoot
  • Great White
  • Hyena
  • Maned Wolf
  • Manticore
  • Okapi
  • Opossum
  • Tasmanian Devil
  • Tufted Deer

BW2: Celebrate Nate's Birthday Event, 2018 Edition! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy Birthday Nate!

It’s that time of year again! Help celebrate Nate Dragon’s birthday by decorating the Commons for him....because no one else will.

First and foremost, whenever Nate is involved, safety becomes a priority. Find Safety Coins in the bushes and bring them to the stations in the Commons to stock up on protective gear. Turn in 10 coins at each station 50 times for an achievement. You can see the number of turn-ins you've completed at a station when you turn in a set of coins. The Kevlar Pad station is there on the first day of the event, and the Fire Extinguisher and Band Aid stations will unlock as the event goes on.

Then it seems Nate needs decorations and activities to set up in the Commons. Go out daily and find things for his party. Have fun trying out the activity stations as many times as you want!

If you're trying to get Tiny Little Arms or Just Like Nate achievements, or if you just want to have a little fun, you need to be wearing all pieces of the Dragon gear or the Nate outfit (available from the vendor's Bush Bucks store if it's your first time playing this event) while completing the 4 party Stations: Dynamite Activity, Campfire Activity, Digging Activity and the Training Whacking Activity.

If you've built the Town Hall, you can expect an fiery visitor to the party as well!

New for 2018:

We've added a new 3 part quest line unlocking as the event goes on, related to treasure.

And introducing the 100% reward for this year: Statues! Check out the explosive Nate themed one below!

Event Achievements - POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!

There are a total FIFTEEN possible Achievements to earn in the Nate’s Birthday 2018 event:

Achievements Returning in 2018:

Safety First - You completed a turn-in at each of the Safety Stations.
Safety Inspector - You completed 50 turn-ins at each of the Safety Stations.
Without a Hitch - You helped Nate with all of his Birthday quests!
Neverending Supply - You completed all 4 of the Birthday event daily quests 3 times.
Firefighter - You put out a fire and saved a building in the Commons! [Requires the Town Hall built]
Dragon Slayer - You scared off a dragon and saved the Commons!
Surprise Explosions! - You helped organize a surprise party for Nate.
A Heroic Gift - Help Natalie make Nate look like a hero for his birthday.

Added/Changed for 2018:

Nate's Treasures - You bought all the 2018 Nate's Birthday event items! *

We have 6 achievements from previous year's events, which may be earned by spending some Bush Bucks, if a player was not present during the initial year:

Birthday Souvenirs - You bought all the 2017 Nate's Birthday event items!
Nate's Finer Things - You bought all the 2016 Nate's Birthday event items!
Nate's Stash - You bought all the 2015 Nate's Birthday event items!
Tiny Little Arms - You bungled each activity station while dressed like a Dragon
Nate's Inventory - You bought all the 2014 Nate's Birthday event items!
Just Like Nate! - You bungled each activity station while dressed like Nate.

*The mini-golf piece is not included in the Nate's Treasures achievement, and therefore it is not required to purchase it.

Pet Packs:

It's dangerous to go alone, so you should have a friend! Check our newest sidekicks for you to consider:

2018 Pet Packs --> COMING SOON!!

COTLI: Introducing Limited Time Challenges! 

Today we're finally ready to unveil a brand new feature in Crusaders of the Lost Idols: Limited Time Challenges!

Limited Time Challenges are customized objectives that you can attempt once a week, between Tuesday at noon and Thursday at noon PST. You'll be awarded Challenge Tokens depending on how far you get, and you can use those Tokens to buy special items in the brand new Challenge Store (coming soon). This week's Challenge has already begun, so get to it! Good luck!

You can check out the Challenge FAQ below for more information, or the Challenge FAQ on the Challenge dialog in-game.

What are Challenges?

Challenges are limited-time objectives which can be attempted once a week to earn Challenge Tokens. Each week, a random objective from a pool of specially designed Challenge objectives will be chosen to be that week's Challenge. The base set of Challenges restricts you to using certain types of Crusaders, however future Challenges will provide more variety.

What are Challenge Tokens?

Challenge Tokens are awarded for taking part in Challenges and are used in the Challenge Token Store to buy all sorts of goodies, such as Jeweled Chests and week-long buffs. More items will be added over time, providing an endless supply of fun rewards to work towards.

How are Challenge Tokens awarded?

Challenge Tokens are awarded when you reset in a Challenge and are based on the highest area you reach during that run. At any time during a Challenge, you can see the amount of tokens you would receive if you reset by looking at the notification on the right, or in the Challenges window, which is accessed from the same panel as Achievements and Statistics. You can reset whenever you'd like during a Challenge, but you can only do one Challenge per week, so you should get as far as you can before you reset!

When can I attempt Challenges?

Challenges run every week from Tuesday at noon to Thursday at noon (PST). A countdown to the next Challenge can be found on the Challenges window. You only get to try a Challenge objective once per week, so once you have started a Challenge, you will not be able to start one again until the next week's Challenge is available.

Will there be a new Objective every week?

You will never see the same Challenge Objective two weeks in a row, but the same Objective can be picked again on a later week. You can start the Objective again and earn tokens again even if you've already done it for a previous Challenge. Try to beat your old scores!

What happens if I run out of time?

If you have not yet started the Challenge, it simply disappears. If you are currently on the Challenge, you will be forced to reset the world. Any progress already made will be counted and you will receive Idols and tokens as normal.

This Challenge is too hard!

If you're not getting anywhere, just go do another Objective. There's always next week! If you've not yet unlocked a Crusader who can reset, you can abandon the challenge like you would normally abandon an objective. You can abandon Challenges without any penalty. You will receive Idols and Challenge Tokens as though you had reset normally, and the cooldown timer for abandoning will not be triggered.

BW2: Explorer's League Quest Part 4 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

Are you one of the intrepid Bush Whackers who has collected the Artifact Pieces from all 20 Lockbox Puzzles from part 3 of the grand quest and have also completed the content up to The Spore Castle zone?

Then Josephine, the leader of the Explorer's League, would like to talk to you again. Talk to the Town Crier in the Commons, then seek her out on the fourth story of the Skyscraper to get started.

This new series of daily quests will again challenge your knowledge of Bush Whacker 2 zones, taking you everywhere up to the Spore Castle on your journey around Bushwhackia, and your learned whacking skills!
