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.

Safety First

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.

Party Preparation

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!

Dragon Costuming

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.

Fire! Fire!

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

New for 2023

This year's update includes:

- a new cursed cubes quest, with a new companion to collect!
- new costume items in the store!
- new ranch items in the store!
- new pet packs!

Holiday Rubber Duckies

As this is the first event of 2023, we're introducing a new 2023 100% reward set - Holiday Rubber Duckies! Collect them all to fill out the holiday duck pond, released later this year!

Nate's Generous Uncle

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

Idle Champions: Midwinter 6 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Deadwinter Day has arrived once again in Longsaddle. While most citizens keep warm in their homes and exchange gifts to celebrate the midpoint of winter with friends and family, the Champions have been hired by the infamous Harpells to patrol the outskirts of town...

Midwinter 6 introduces Fen, the Drow Dhampir Warlock from the Black Dice Society, and brings back Rust on the Habour, hydrophobic Tabaxi rogue and sometimes member of the Oxventure Guild, and Talin Uran, a Combat Wheelchair-using Tiefling Rogue. Players have until Monday, January 23rd at 12 PM Pacific to complete their Midwinter 6 unlocks and objectives.

I. Fen

Dungeons & Dragons Fen Midwinter
    This Drow Dhampir Warlock has a touch of mischief and sneakiness, but she's loyal to those she cares for and a fearsome opponent for those who have earned her hate. Above all else, everything Fen has done has been for Isolde's freedom. Now she needs a new purpose to fight for, and maybe she can find it among the Society.


Fen is a DPS and Support Champion, and is the newest Black Dice Society member to join the formation. In addition to buffing the damage of Champions in her row, this Warlock/Rogue increases the attack speed of all Warlocks in the formation. Finally, she's keen to help you finish any Patron challenges you might still be facing. Once unlocked, you can find this Dhampir Drow in Slot 6 opposite Asharra.

For more details on Fen and her abilities, check out her Champion Blog, or her Spotlight Video below!

Year Six Variants


  • Adventure Variant 1: Mirtwinter Day - Patrol the outskirts of Longsaddle on Deadwinter Day with Mirt the Moneylender. Fen joins the formation and can be moved, but not removed. Mirt also joins the formation and only Champions in Mirt's column can deal damage.
    Complete Area 75.

  • Adventure Variant 2: The Wise and the Warlocks - Patrol the outskirts of Longsaddle on Deadwinter Day with the wisest of your Champions. Fen joins the formation and can be moved, but not removed. Vajra and redeemed Zariel also join the formation; they're here for moral support. You may only use Warlocks, Black Dice Society Champions, or Champions with WIS 15+.
    Complete Area 125.

  • Adventure Variant 3: Oh Great, More Mist! - Patrol the outskirts of Longsaddle on Deadwinter Day as the mists of Ravenloft envelop the city. Fen joins the formation and can be moved, but not removed. Since the weather is foggy, you can't use Champions with ranged attacks, except for Desmond. 1-2 zombies spawn with each wave; they don't drop gold or count toward quest progress. Strahd spawns as a second boss in each boss area and he must also be defeated to progress.
    Complete Area 175.

If you have feedback to share, let us know in a Community Q&A or Champion feedback post on the Idle Champions Subreddit, on the Steam forums, or on the Official Idle Champions Discord!

Idle Champions: Simril 6 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Someone outside Luskan has been pillaging the food stores in advance of this year's Simril celebration. Residents are becoming worried that there may not be enough to last the long Sword Coast winter to come!

Simril 6 introduces Warduke, the legendary mercenary for hire human fighter! Simril also brings back Yorven Springpaw, the resident murder bunny Harengon Barbarian Druid, and Lucius the High Elf Sorcerer of the High Rollers: Aerois party! Players have until Monday, December 12th at 12PM Pacific to complete their Simril 6 unlocks and objectives.

I. Warduke



    Warduke's services as a remorseless killer-for-hire can be easily bought. The evil swordsman isn't terribly bright, which is why he leaves the plotting and scheming to others. He just likes to hit things with his sword.

This deadly warrior is a Tanking and DPS Champion who grows more powerful the more he swings his sword, all while inverting the positional formation abilities of the other Champions. Once you have unlocked his services, you can swap Warduke with Delina in Slot 8. For more information on Warduke and his abilities, check out his Champion Spotlight, or watch the quick video overview linked below!

Year Six Variants


  • A Figure of Action - Simril is ruined! Someone has pilfered the food supplies and the lack of calories is making everyone attack slowly! Warduke joins the formation, and can't be moved or removed. Warduke's normal attack speed cooldown is reduced by 1 seconds while all other Champions have their normal attack speed cooldown increased by 3 seconds!
    Complete Area 75

  • Yield! - Strongheart thinks you are responsible for the stolen food supplies! Warduke joins the formation, and can't be moved or removed. Only Evil Champions, Chaotic Champions, or Champions with the Gold Find role can be used. Strongheart spawns in each boss area and must additionally be defeated to progress.
    Reach Area 125

  • Strike That, Reverse It - Only specific Champions are able to save Simril now! Warduke joins the formation, and can't be moved or removed. You may only use Warduke and Champions that have positional formation abilities.
    Reach Area 175

    Finding a Feast

    First and foremost, it's all about helping the chefs fill their food stations to the brim - and beyond.

    A New Festival

    Granny Gaia has a ninth harvest festival to teach you about this year! That's a lot of them, so be sure to stay on top of these quests and complete them before the event is over!

    A New Stove

    Another littering dragon has tossed an appliance, crashing it into the event area. But one dragon's trash is Fatima's treasure! Help her repair this appliance and take it to your ranch!

    Idle Champions: Feast of the Moon 6 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    During Feast of the Moon, residents of the Sword Coast pay homage to the deeds of legendary heroes by visiting their crypts and graves.

    When the Champions arrive at The Crypt of Legends, they find hordes of undead crawling up from the depths. Something is making the dead heroes rise, and the answer will require a descent into the depths to discover the cause...

    Feast of the Moon 6 introduces Virgil, the aasimar storm sorcerer and member of the Rivals of Waterdeep. This event also brings back two Heroes of the Planes: Penelope "Half-Pint", the Circle of the Moon Druid/Warlock, and Widdle, the dhampir gnome wizard! Players have until Monday, November 21st at 12PM Pacific to complete your Feast of the Moon 6 unlocks and objectives.

    New Champion: Virgil

    Dungeons & Dragons Virgil Brian

      With unexpected and unwelcome Celestial heritage, Virgil was always trying to get away from both his past and a disapproving family. He put his talents to work on the sea, traveling with crews who he hoped would ask nothing more than that he earn his keep by way of his magic. Eventually he grew tired of wandering and ended up in the quiet lakeside town of Caradoon, thinking he might put down roots. But that all changed when he met and fell for a kindred spirit in the form of a charming and witty Tiefling named Kent. After some over-enthusiastic handling of the local tavern's rat problem, they found themselves on the move again. Fortunately they met Selise Astorio of the Rivals of Waterdeep, and while quickly becoming entangled in the group's adventures they discovered a new family and a new home.

    Virgil is a support and speed Champion who is the master of lightning speeds! He makes the attacks of adjacent Champions faster, and speeds up progress if the formation is quickly dispatching enemies. Find out more about him and and his abilities by checking out his full Champion Spotlight!

    Year Six Variants



  • Eye of the Storm - Virgil begins in the formation and can't be moved or removed. Only Champions next to Virgil can deal damage.

    BW2: Halloween Event, 2022 Edition! 
    Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

    The Haunted Mansion Has Materialized!

    Who doesn't love a good haunted mansion? Well, that's what Halloween 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 "Halloween Collector," they will count so long as they are within your haunted house inventory.

    The goal is to scare 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.

    The Haunted Mansion Photo Contest

    The Haunted Mansion Photo Contest will be starting on Wednesday October 26th You'll need 300 mansion spookiness before you can submit a screenshot, and at least 10 items placed in your mansion.

    In case you're wanting to keep your decorations secret until it's finished, you can now prevent or allow friends from visiting your mansion by talking to the contest NPC and selecting either "Don't let anyone visit my mansion!" or "Allow friends to visit my mansion!" respectively.

    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 23, 11:59:59 AM PDT
    Witches - AVAILABLE Sun Oct 23, Noon PDT UNTIL Tues Oct 25, 11:59:59 AM PDT

    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!

    Not ready to show off your Haunted Mansion to friends? Prevent or allow friends from visiting your mansion by talking to the contest NPC and selecting either "Don't let anyone visit my mansion!" or "Allow friends to visit my mansion!" respectively.

    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.

    Idle Champions: Liar's Night 6 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

      "Did you hear what happened at the Wayside Inn?"
      "No -- what happened?"
      "While everyone was partying to Liars' Night they got robbed."
      "Seriously!? Who robs a party?"
      "It was 'A Masked Man', apparently."
      "What a jerk. I hope they catch him."
    The local Liars' Night festivities at the Wayside Inn were interrupted by a masked thief! They stole magical items and escaped, and now it's up to the Champions to stop them!

    Liars' Night 6 introduces Kent, the Tiefling Rogue from Rivals of Waterdeep! This event also brings back Brig Hellclaw, the Rogue/Bard played by Jason Charles Miller, and Ezmerelda d'Avenir, a prolific vampire hunter from the land of Barovia! Players have until Monday, October 31st at 12 PM Pacific to complete their Liars' Night 6 unlocks and objectives.

    New Champion: Kent

    Dungeons & Dragons Kent Eugenio

      Kent is a former archaeologist turned adventurer whose Rogue skills and powers over death were honed by spending months making his way through the temple of Talona, where the rest of his archaeological research team was killed by traps and monsters. When he finally returned home to the lakeside town of Caradoon, he was the same outgoing, flamboyant Tiefling he had always been, but now it seemed to mask a darkness that Kent has since done his best to keep hidden. Fortunately for him, he doesn't have to bear the darkness alone, because not long after his return to Caradoon, he met smart, capable, and patient Aasimar named Virgil. Together they met up with Selise from the Rivals, and joined her and the rest of the crew in Waterdeep.

    Kent is a support and DPS Champion who collects soul trinkets representing the highest level boss defeated in each campaign, which he uses to buff himself and Champions in his column. In addition, he increases the effectiveness of your achievement bonuses for the adventure he is on. Once unlocked, you can find this tiefling rogue with Jarlaxle in Slot 4.

    For more detailed information on Kent, check out his Champion Spotlight!

Each wave spawns Giant Rats that don't drop gold or count toward quest progress. The first time an enemy is hit by a normal attack, they only take 1 point of damage.
      Reach Area 175.
