Why a charity fundraiser, Codename?

One of Codename Entertainment's long-term goals is to give back as much as we can. As part of giving back, we regularly find charities and organizations that we want to support and do charitable promotions for them in-game. (100% of Codename's proceeds from these sales like this go directly to the charity. It gives you some extra in-game goodies, it provides funds and support for Lambert House, and it gives us a warm fuzzy feeling in our tummies.)

This charity drive ends at noon on Monday June 14th, so don't forget to contribute while you can. Let's help today's youth!

The butterflies are out there somewhere, and this weekend's visitor is looking to attract them to the event area! This is their third visit, so complete there tasks and get another of their 5 butterfly companions!

Head to the event area in the Commons to get started. Attract different species to the event area in two ways:
1 - Help Harrow in the event area with her quests, unlocking at noon on Saturday and Sunday. There are 2 species to unlock this way.
2 - Collect Rare Flowers! You can do this after completing Harrow's first quest, available on Friday. There are 3 species to unlock this way, which will be much more challenging to get!

At the end of this colourful quest, you'll get to choose a butterfly companion from the different species you attract.

You have until noon on Monday June 7th to attract as many as you can, and you'll have until noon on Tuesday June 8th to choose one as a companion. Good luck!

Fill the Vastness of Space

While you're there, don't forget to check out the new Space Whale pet! The more there are, the higher the max level bonus is for everyone who has one! It's only available until Monday June 7th, so grab one and help everyone get the most powerful pet while you can! Talk to the spacy human in the event area for updates on the bonus.

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 plumedragon pets!



Head to the event area and choose one to train. You have until noon on Wednesday June 2nd 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 May 31st.

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.
- These three pets earn double the experience compared to other pets 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 pets are for sale?" chat option.

This will open a new store, which will contain 3 non-event premium pets 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 pets they've missed out on, to help you fill out your pet collection. Snag those old-school mounts you're missing out on!

BW2: The 10th Spring Garden Event! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Flowers In Bloom!

The Tenth annual Grow-A-Thon has returned to the Commons! Whack the bushes and gather their bounty so that you can plant flowers and trees in the Event area to make yourself a gorgeous garden. Impress the judges every 20 hours to earn Spring tokens to buy this year’s Custom Items. You need to impress the previous judge to get a rating from the next one.

Plus, fill your magnificent garden with critters! There are 5 to get throughout the event, starting with the Squirrel today! You can send out requests for a free one.

Also returning is the Gorgeous Garden contest! Check back next week for more details!

George has such a terrible green thumb, he’ll be looking for you to help him out trying to grow a plant for the first (or fourth) time.

Spring usually means spring cleaning, right? Freddy needs some help cleaning up his house. It’s gotten a little bit spooky. Cleaning items can only be whacked in his house.

Timmy wants to wake his turtle up from its hibernation after that long, cold winter. Aid him in finding things to tempt it back to consciousness.

Earn another copy of your old Bee pet, or one of the other two Bees when you complete the quests again this year!

Have too many seeds? There's now two new things you can spend them on:
- 10 Fertilizer, once daily
- The Spring Gift Bouquet, once daily (alternatively to buying for Spring Tokens)

New for 2021

If you can complete the event, you'll earn the Spring Mannequin Base!



Four new growable decorations have been added! They are the Sunset Sunflower, Yellow Rose, Hedge, and Pink Hedge! Plant seeds for these in your garden boxes in the event area.



For players level 400+, Farmer McDonald will reward you with Tier 2 Spring Fruit and Spring Vegetable seeds! These crops will yield energy and gold balanced for your higher level.

The contest manager will now show a warning before you make a submission after your first, explaining that it will overwrite your last submission and reset your ranking.

Finally, the garden contest page has been updated to show if your submission is in the top 10, 25, 50, or 100 of all ranked submissions! If your submission fall into one of these categories, you'll see a message saying so below your submission image.

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.

BW2: Lost Woods Mini Event 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Are you tired of hearing endless talk of 'Endless Dungeons' by the devs? Roll your eyes no more, as a mini-event demonstrating a lite version of Endless Dungeons is here! Delve into the Lost Woods!

What are Endless Dungeons?

'Endless Dungeon' is the technical term for a new system, where you enter the dungeon, complete puzzles in a series of small areas, and collect a special reward at the end, where you return to the entrance and can enter again.

When you click the entrance of a dungeon, you'll see the following popup with some details about your progress in the dungeon. Click the big arrow/doorway button to enter the dungeon!

Runs and Tiers

Each of these can be called a "run". Each run requires you complete an increasing number of areas to complete. The first might be 3 areas, the next 6, then 9, etc. These goals are called "Tiers" of the dungeon. You start at Tier 1, complete its 3 areas, and claim its reward to complete it. You can then enter it again at Tier 2.

Each area has a small reward in a silver chest, and each tier has a more unique or greater reward.

Some dungeons will have a maximum tier (like the Lost Woods), and some will not. And some dungeons will have increasing bush whacking costs (bush energy and mana whack), and some will not (like the Lost Woods).

Areas and Effects

Each area of a dungeon is randomly generated. The field, the decorations, visitors, where you enter and leave, and the 'Area Effects'.

What are Area Effects? There modifiers like what your trinkets, pets, mounts, and runes give you, but apply only when you're in the area. These could be positive or negative. Maybe increase energy odds, decreased power odds, or maybe something more weird.

If an area has effects, you can see what the area effect is by mousing over the 'E' star near your mana bar.

What are the Lost Woods?


The Lost Woods are an Endless Dungeon with a maximum tier of 9 and no increasing bush whacking costs. These limits are added so it can fit in the limited time period of a week long mini-event.

To accommodate the different bush whacking skills of early and veteran players, you can complete the event by Tier 3, but can continue on for unique rewards if you're able.

In the Lost Woods, you whack bushes to solve field puzzles, area by area, in search of lost fairies and earn rewards as you delve deeper and deeper! Enter it via the entrance in the Commons event area.

This mini event runs until noon on Friday May 14th. Read the blog for more details. Chat about this mini-event on the forum!
