BW2: Spring Garden Event 2024! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Flowers In Bloom!

The 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.

Many Quests!

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.

Help Farmer McDonald splice together some special Spring Seeds! 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.

Joel has various species of bees for you to choose from after you complete his bee helping quests! They are:

- Leafcutter Bee
- Red-tailed Bumblebee
- Tawny Mining Bee
- Blue Banded Bee
- Neon Cuckoo Bee
- Green Carpenter Bee
- Golden Tail Bee
- Green Sweat Bee
- Purple Orchid Bee

A Seed Surplus

Have too many seeds? There are things you can spend them on:
- 10 Fertilizer, once daily
- The Spring Gift Bouquet, once daily (alternatively to buying for Spring Tokens)
- Resetting the cooldown on the critic's judging of your garden

Gorgeous Garden Contest

Returning is the Gorgeous Garden contest, where each Bush Whacker submits a screenshot of their garden for all to judge! Check back next week for more details.

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: 2022 Gorgeous Garden Photo Contest 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

The Gorgeous Garden Contest is now underway!

We want to see YOUR talented, artistic skills at gardening/art. It's super easy to get started, just start growing plants. When you've got enough, you can begin to lay out your designs in the event area. Once you've managed to get at least a D from each of the judges, you're golden for entering the contest!

How the Contest Works

When you're ready, talk to the photographer (he's got a yellow ! above his head) and have him take a picture of your fantasy garden. You can submit as many times as you would like, but only your most recent submission will get the votes. Each time you do submit a screenshot, your votes will reset to make it fair for everyone, so plan carefully! Submissions will be accepted until *Wednesday, June 1st, 2022, - Noon PDT.*

You Get to Vote!

YOU get to vote too! The coveted 'User's Choice' award is picked by the Bush Whacker Community, and has a prize of 50 Bush Bucks! You can vote for as many submissions as you like, and at the end of the event the top submission as voted by YOU the players will be awarded the prize.

Notes about Voting!
  • Asking to visit the contest or the voting page no longer takes you outside the game; it simply loads the contest/voting page over top it! Finished voting? You can easily return to the event area by clicking "Back to Game" at the bottom of the screen. Easy as pie!

  • Can't decide between two layouts? That’s ok! You now have a way to say "Next Please," and two new images will be loaded up for you!

  • Tired of seeing the same layouts previously? We've improved the system, you should see the same layouts repeated far more infrequently now.

You can vote until *Wednesday, June 1st, 2022 @ Noon PDT.*

And the CNE winners are...

At the end of the event, the entire Codename Entertainment Studio will review the submissions and choose their favourites, with 3 lucky players per platform being awarded prizes of 250, 200, and 150 Bush Bucks for first, second and third. All winners will be published in the blog when we've made our decision.

Post questions and comments here!

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.

Idle Champions: Spring 2022 Champion Balance Update 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Spring has arrived, and with it an opportunity to make updates to some amazing Champions!

Our team saw an opportunity to make balance adjustments to some Champions that did not require major reworks, so over the next few weeks we'll be making these changes. Details about those updates can be found below, or check your game's Changelog!

The Most Recent Update (edited June 1st, 2022):

Week 6 Updates:
  • D'hani - D'hani gains some buffs across the board to make them stronger.
    • Increased Paint Them Red from 100% to 200%.
    • Increased Friendly Rivalry from 100% to 200%.
    • Increased Blotch of Blue boss damage bonus from 400% to 800%.
  • Brig - Brig is the final member of the Sirens of the Realm and gains a buff associated with the new affiliation.
    • Increased Hype stack bonus from 10% to 25% per stack.
    • Added a new ability Siren's Chant that increases the effect of Hype by 200% for each Champion in the formation with the Sirens of the Realms affiliation, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Vi - Vi receives a small buff. She has some additional issues which will be addressed when there is more tech time.
    • Increased a Good Example from 100% to 400%.
  • Yorven - Removed the erroneous healing role.
  • Evelyn - Rounded all health upgrades to the nearest 10
  • Added new upgrades to every Champion to increase the soft cap from approximately e78 to e86.

Previous Updates:

Week 1 Updates:
  • Asharra - Asharra has extremely high usage and needs some slight adjustments to her big DPS ability.
    • Renamed Bond: Half-Blood to Bond: Half 'n Half
    • Halflings will now count for either the Short Folk or the Half 'n Half specialization.
    • Adjusted Paragon of Kir Sabal to require 4 Champions in order for Asharra to benefit from the bond, up from 3.
    • Adjusted the description of Kir Sabal to remove the word 'other'.
  • Delina - No core Champion balance pass is complete without a futile effort to make Delina relevant.
    • Increased Surge of Power from 10% to 50% per stack.
  • Makos - Makos' Dark Luck specialization is tragically underutilized and needed some love.
    • Increased the gold amount of Dark Luck from 100% to 200%.
    • Increased the base effect of Eldritch Alchemy from 25% to 100%.
    • Added a 400% self damage boost to the Dark Luck spec.
  • Jamilah - Jamilah faces an uphill battle to be competitive in her seat. Perhaps these adjustments will get her going in the right direction.
    • Increased Retaliation's bonus from 25% to 100% per attacking enemy.
    • Increased base effect of Frontline Fighter from 100% to 200%.
    • Increased her base Overwhelm number by 10.
    • Increase the effect of Indomitable Might from 200% to 400%
    • Added additional DPS upgrades to Jamilah.

    • Curse of Lycanthropy damage bonus increased from 100% to 400%
    • Taste for Blood damage bonus increased from 10% to 25% per stack.
    • Renamed Adept Traveller to Adept Traveler (from British English to American English).
    • Adept Traveler base damage buff increased from 100% to 800%.
  • Reya - Reya was challenging to use, so we've expanded her potential synergies with Celestial Champion.
    • Increased the base effect of Searing Radiance from 100% to 200% and made the fiends bonus damage quadruple instead of double.
    • Made Celestial Champion apply to all Lawful and/or Good Champions instead of only specifically Lawful Good. It now counts twice if they are both Lawful Good.
Week 2 Updates:
  • Stoki - We have increased Stoki's abilities to give her a bit more DPS oomph and a bit more gold find utility for early-game players.
    • Increased base Ki Strike bonus from 100% to 400%.
    • Increased Golden Palm gold bonus from 20% per Mark of Ki to 50%.
    • Increased Ki Overflow extra damage debuff increased from 100% to 400%.

    • Increased additional damage in Practice makes Perfect from 50% per orb to 100% per orb.

    • Increased Tallest in FaerÈ—n from 100% to 200%.
  • Ishi - Ishi gets some small buffs to their gold find and damage abilities.

    • Increased Let's Find Some Treasure from 20% to 50% per adjacent non-human.
    • Increased Treasure Hunter to last for 15 seconds instead of 5.
Week 3 Updates:
  • Vlahnya - We have added a new affiliation to Vlahnya, Orisha, and Brig. These three Champions will synergize around this affiliation as they receive updates.
    • Added a Sirens of the Realms affiliation that includes Vlahnya, Orisha and Brig Hellclaw.
    • Added a new ability Siren's Call that increases the effect of Enthralling Performance by 200% for each Champion in the formation with the Sirens of the Realms affiliation, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Rosie - Rosie needs a lot of help, so we've supercharged all her numbers. Look out, world! (We will probably revisit Rosie later with some non-data-only changes as well)

  • Walnut - Walnut receives some non-trivial buffs to her specializations to help her work better with her C-Team friends./li>
    • Increased Sign and Date's damage bonus from 50% to 200%
    • Increased Co-Signers' buff from 100% to 500% per stack

    • Increased Magic Magic Magic Magic from 50% to 100% per stack.
Week 4 Updates:
  • Pwent - We have increased and rebalanced several of Pwent's abilities to give him more bang and less spikes (though his armor is still quite spikey).
    • Increased Bloodstained Armor's effect on Battlerager to a 100% bonus (Battlerager previously had a 66% chance of occurring).
    • Increased the stack cap of Count 'Em Off to 50 stacks.
    • Increased Count 'Em Off stack reduction time from 12 to 20 seconds.
    • Increased Count 'Em Off damage from 20% to 25% per stack.

    • Increased the stun duration in Nature's Wrath from 3 to 4 seconds.
    • Increased the effect of Sentry's Homeland from 100% to 400%.

    • Increased Absolute Righteousness from 100% to 400%.

Week 5 Updates:

    • Added an Uncommon & Rare Overwhem feat.
    • Increased his health by approximately 15% (including health upgrades).
  • Ezmerelda - Ezmerelda needs more love than some simple data changes, but these will have to do for now to make her more useful in the niche situations where she is somewhat useful.
    • Increased Training Montage: Pause from 10% to 25% per stack.
    • Increased The Devil's Playthings from 100% to 200% base.
    • Increased Threat Tracking from 0.01% to 0.025% per stack.
  • Penelope - Penelope's healing has been bumped up a bit. Further tweaks would require client changes, so they'll need to wait.
    • Increased Healing Charm from 30 HP/second to 50 HP/second.
  • Orisha - Orisha's DPS and support abilities have been bumped up. She synergizes with Vlahnya and Brig, so the three of them together should show some improvement.

    • Increased all the Heroes of the Planes effects from 100% to 200%.
  • Prudence - We've tweaked Prudence's She Hungers specialization choice to make it slightly more appealing if you need some ultimate oomph.
    • Increased She Hungers chance resetting her ultimate cooldown from 5% to 10%.
    • She Hungers now also increases her ultimate attack damage by 200%.
  • Corazon - We have increased the effect of G.O.A.T. Pirate so that Corazon can stack more quickly to an effective support.
    • Increased G.O.A.T. Pirate from 0.01% to 0.1% per stack.
