BW2: Celebrate Nate's Birthday Event! 
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 2021:

New year, new gift from Nate's uncle! He seems apologetic enough, so maybe this one won't be cursed...

And introducing the 100% reward for this year: Mannequin Bases! Collect each one and expand your ranch fashion displays! Here's a base to suit Nate's explosive style:



Event Achievements - POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!

There are a total EIGHTEEN possible Achievements to earn in the Nate’s Birthday 2021 event:

Achievements Returning in 2021:

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. Cursed Cubes! - You removed the cube curse!

Added/Changed for 2021:

We have 8 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:

BW2: Creature Collector - Kitsune Mounts! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Coppers of the Creature Collector

The eccentric Creature Collector has returned to the Commons, this time with a trio of Kitsune mounts!



Head to the event area and choose one to train. You have until noon on Wednesday January 13th to complete the collector's four daily quests, level up your chosen creature, earn Creature Coppers to spend in their store, and get another page to your Creature Collector's Compendium!

The Compendium Page will be given after the event ends. If you don't have the Creature Collector's Compendium ranch item, you'll get it when you get your first page.

After the event, the collector will be taking their creature back unless you adopt it by purchasing its corresponding mount pack, available starting Monday January 11th.

Train hard, Bush Whackers!

The training quests unlock at noon on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Those busy on the weekends can still catch up!

Notes
- The VIP "Quest Reset" power does not reset these mini event quests, and they are not affected by the Time Turner and Timey Whimey Watch.
- Swapping your event mount with a higher level mount doesn't count towards event progress.

Updates

The three Kitsune mounts earn double the experience compared to other mounts for the duration of this mini-event!

Ye Olde Creature Collector's Galleria - Pets

When you speak to Tanela Tiva in the event area, you can select the "What past mounts are for sale?" chat option.

This will open a new store, which will contain 3 non-event premium mounts you have never owned! They cost Bush Bucks, like in event stores. The selection will change next time Tanela Tiva visits to event area.

We've done this in response to players asking to see old premium mounts they've missed out on, to help you fill out your pet collection. Snag those old-school mounts you're missing out on!

BW2: Christmas Time Is Here! Christmas Event 2020 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

'Tis the Season for Giving!

Get into the giving mood of the holiday season by tackling the Bushwhackia Christmas event.

You'll want to get started by heading to the event area in the Commons to meet up with the stranded elf and help him fix his teleporter. (It's delicate, OK?) Once you've got it operational, you'll be able to make the journey far to the North Pole where you'll find a bevy of characters who need your special skills to make the holiday celebrations work!

Your primary task will be helping the elves make presents by bringing them Candy Canes (that you find in bushes), but there is a veritable smorgasbord of holiday related quests to complete as well. All of these quests will unlock over the course of the event, with the last ones unlocking on Christmas Day.

Once you've found reindeer chow for the poor reindeer, then you can help out Santa by delivering a present to a random house daily.

New for 2020

This year's update includes: a new Christmas tree for your ranch received from completing the Decorate Tree quest; a new Snowman companion from the Build a Snowman quest; another custom item for ice fishing; a new dress-up achievement; a new item to steal; and more!

Christmas Pet Piece

Get 100% completion this event to collect the final Holiday Pet Piece of 2020! After you’ve collected all 13 holiday 2020 pet pieces, return to the Commons to find someone to help you assemble them into the Holidoll Cat companion!


The Christmas Pet Piece!


Presents all Around!!

Here's the event that started the gifting tradition! Once a day, if you have excess tokens, you can send a Present to a friend! These presents will contain a random amount of gold, energy, mana, power and come with some other treats as well. If you want to send more presents in a day, it will cost you a few Bush Bucks. Talk to Sasha in the North Pole to learn more!

Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Generation 13 Pets! (December 9th, 2020)

- 10 new pets are now in rotation for Misty’s pet raising quests!
- Added 9 new unique variations of the gen 13 pets to the PAGAS egg store.
- Added a PAGAS Pet Progress reward tiers for 700 and 750 unique pets.

- Can now trade DOWN your rarer DNAs by talking to Vincent as choose the ‘I'd like to trade my DNA’ then ‘I'd like to trade DOWN my DNA’ chat options.

- All stores have been improved to show how many of a pet or mount you've owned or the amount of the inventory or ranch item you have when you mouse over the store item image!

- Fixed trinket set buttons in your Inventory not updating to show you’ve equipped one when using the hotkeys.

- Fixed your mount not facing downwards when you equip a trinket set.

- Fixed not being able to re-equip the last trinket set you equipped after changing your trinkets.

- Changed trinket set hotkeys from Q,W,E,R,T to 1,2,3,4,5 to better map to the numbers on the buttons themselves, and prevent accidental switching when mis-clicking the chat sidebar.

- Fixed longer set bonus lists going off the screen when viewing them in your inventory. They are now split into multiple columns if they have more than 10 bonuses.

- Enlarged trinket set slot preview images.

- On the Desktop Launcher, added an exclamation mark on the Options (the gear) menu buttons that shows when you have active tickets. Red for waiting for response, Green for unread responses.

- Added a more descriptive error message for some errors previously just described as “invalid parameters”. This will hopefully help with debugging a timestamp error that might be happening rarely when using the Desktop Launcher.

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

BW2: Generation 13 Pets are Here! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Gotta find 'em all!

A new selection of critters are now available to be your companions!

Those weirdly random abandoned eggs scattered all over Bushwhackia 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 12 eggs available to purchase for Bush Bucks during the "Find an Egg" quest.


Other changes to Misty and Hank for Generation 13:

  • Misty will no longer let players abandon Gen 12 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 12 pet eggs can now be found in Quester's Satchels (with the same limitations as the Generation 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 eggs, which will still be available in satchels as well.)

  • Hank now sells a random assortment of hatched level 1 Generation 13 pets (instead of Generation 12) for Bush Bucks in his pet store.

PAGAS changes for Generation 13:

  • Generation 13 pet eggs are available to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store, once you have hatched at least five Generation 13 pets. This include 9 unique variations of the new pets.

  • The Pet Progress dialog now includes Generation 13 pets. Another 19 new pets that all players can unlock!

  • There are new PAGAS Pet Progress reward tiers for 700 and 750 unique pets for those avid collectors! A new unique pet named Cort, and 10 more Unique DNA, respectively.

  • You can now also trade down your rarer DNAs by talking to Vincent as choose the ‘I'd like to trade my DNA’ then ‘I'd like to trade DOWN my DNA’ chat options.

Store Improvement:


In addition to these new pets, all stores have been improved to show how many of a pet or mount you've owned or the amount of the inventory or ranch item you have when you mouse over the store item image!

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

Generation 13 Pets:

  • Wasp
  • Cootie
  • Robo Dwarf
  • Jellyfish
  • Blue Tang
  • Trub
  • Spooky
  • Roach
  • Luna Moth
  • Quokka
