BW2: Thankful Thanksgiving Event 2017 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Thanksgiving Time!

The residents of The Commons are preparing for a massive feast to celebrate the end of harvest season, and of course they need your expertise at finding things in bushes!

First and foremost, it's all about helping the chefs fill their food stations to the brim - and beyond. There's three of them for three types of meals, so you'll be collecting Meat, Veggies and of course Deserts to feed the hungry masses of Bushwhackia! Can you make all the Pristine Food? Keep doing turn-ins to achieve it!

On the subject of food - four of the guests have promised they would bring a dish to share, but they've forgotten ingredients.

And then, there's the problem of the Turkeys. Apparently, they need to be rescued in some fashion, so you'll need to get on that. You have the whole event to complete it.

Once again we're celebrating other harvest festivals around the world and hosting an inflatable surprise. They'll unlock as the event goes on. And tune in on Thanksgiving (or after, if you're enjoying your day off), for a fun show!

Of course, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the Black Friday questline introduced last year, and a fridge to store all those leftovers!

New for 2017:
We've added one new quest line this year. Nate is up to something. Help him out once his quest begins.

Plus we've updated the goals required for the ribbons and 100% award, since there are so many quests that award event progress, and added some new quests to the Other Harvest Festivals quest line!

Event Achievements - POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!

Achievements Returning in 2017:
  • Special Order - You helped all of the people prepare their special dishes.
  • Master of the Ways - You have helped cook each dish excellently for the pristine table.
  • Short Order Cook - You've helped prepare one of each dish.
  • Turkey Lover - You saved enough turkeys to guarantee survival. This year.
  • Historical Detective - You helped Bob the Historian investigate the Pilgrims.
  • Family Matters - You brought all of Brock's family together for Thanksgiving.
  • Parade Enthusiast - You watched the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  • Fridge Fix-Up - You helped Fatima fix an old fridge and move it your ranch.
  • Thorough Taste Testing - You helped out Miss Mei enough to try all the different daily side dish samples.
Added/Changed for 2017:
  • Feastful Frittering - You purchased all the Thanksgiving 2017 items.*
  • Fattened Feathered Friend - Help Nate fatten up his turkey.
We have 6 achievements from previous years' events, which may be earned by spending some Bush Bucks if a player was not present during the original years:
  • Thankful Decorator - You bought all the house items from the 2012 Thanksgiving Event.
  • Thankful Dresser - You bought all the player items from the 2012 Thanksgiving Event.
  • Thankful Shopper - You bought all the 2013 Turkey Day items.
  • Black Friday - You bought all the 2014 Thanksgiving items.
  • Thanks For The Stuff - You purchased all the Thanksgiving 2015 items.
  • Grateful Expenditure - You purchased all the Thanksgiving 2016 items.
* The Mini Golf piece is NOT included in the Feastful Frittering achievement, and therefore it is not required to purchase it.

Pet Packs:

2017 Pets -- Available in Packs! COMING SOON!



The event will run until Friday December 1st at Noon PST!

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

The party descends into an infamous crypt filled with the tombs of local heroes to pay homage to their deeds during the Feast of the Moon. Unfortunately, the dead are restless, rising from their slumber as undead and gathering deep in the crypt for some unknown nefarious purpose...

Fight your way through the risen heroes of yore as your party descends into the dark depths of The Crypt of Legends. Seek out whatever is responsible for this undead uprising, and put an end to it for good!

Idle Champions' latest event, Feast of the Moon, is a celebration honoring the deeds of the fallen heroes of Faerûn. This limited-time adventure runs from today until Noon PST on Tuesday, November 28th 2017, and introduces Gromma, the Tortle Druid.


New Champion: Gromma Nander

A wise Tortle matriarch, Gromma Nander is an elderly Circle of the Land Druid with nearly one hundred grandchildren. She has picked up many skills over her long life, and is able to fulfill DPS, support, or tanking roles in a formation. No matter her specialization, Gromma has a particular grandmotherly fondness for young members of any race, and will empower members of her party, with the youngest receiving the greatest boost.

When you want to add Gromma to your party, you can swap her with Nayeli.


Feast of the Moon Variants

  • Respectful Restraint — Ultimate Attacks can not be used and any attacks with a cooldown of 5 seconds or less have an additional 3 second cooldown (so a 4 second cooldown becomes 7 seconds, but a 6 second cooldown stays at 6 seconds). These lengthened attacks don't do any additional damage due to their longer cooldown.

  • The Relentless Undead — Undead monsters have 2x as much health as normal and, when they take a killing blow, they are stunned for 10 seconds before coming back to life (they still drop gold and quest items and count towards the quest each time they are killed).

  • A Grand Nandventure — Gromma Nander is forced to be in your formation. She starts at level 1 in your formation right away alongside Bruenor. She cannot be removed from the formation or swapped out of her seat. She has a 4x damage boost and her normal attack cooldown is reduced by 2 seconds.


Features:

  • Added the Feast of the Moon event, our third limited-time campaign event! The event will run until Tuesday, November 28th at noon PST.
  • Added a new Champion: Gromma, the Tortle Druid.
  • Added a new event Divine Favor: Jergal's Favor.
  • Added five new Achievements.

See the in-game FAQ for more information!

At level 300, you unlock her Carnivore upgrade, which adds a choice of 2 meats to Casey's Stew line-up.

At level 600, you can help Casey finish off her stew by buying the Spice it Up upgrade, which adds 2 spices to her ingredient line-up.

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Get Stuffed | Food enemies attack the formation. When they are killed, a random Crusader eats them. Upon eating enough food, the Crusader becomes stuffed and has their DPS and FAs disabled. Changing areas clears all debuffs. Reach area 600.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Thanksgiving Silver and Jeweled Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders and free play will drop all-tier chests. Gear for the Tier 2 and 3 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusader. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop.

You'll have until Tuesday, November 28th at Noon PST to complete Kaine's Dinner of Doom this year!

BW2: Remembrance Day Charity Drive! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

November 11th is Remembrance Day, which marks the date when armies stopped fighting in World War I, and is when we take time to remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve during times of war, conflict and peace. This weekend, we'd like to raise money for the Canadian War Amps, a Canadian registered nonprofit organization, established in 1918 to meet the needs of war amputees. Read more about the War Amps here.

So, for the next few days you can buy Poppy Cupcakes, of which 100% of our proceeds will be donated directly to the Canadian War Amps. Talk to the veteran in the Commons by the Town Hall to learn more about the opportunity.

The Poppy Cupcakes will be available to purchase until Monday November 13th at Noon PST. Thank you in advance to those of you who donate to this cause.

BW2: Nate's High Jungle Dive! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Get ready for more underwater mayhem!

Nate's heard rumors of treasure in the High Jungle and needs your help, Bush Whackers! If you've completed Nate's Spine of the World adventure and have finished the first tier of the third field in the Plateau Lakes in the High Jungle, talk to the Town Crier to get started.

In this adventure you'll need to help Nate find treasure underneath the lake's ancient waters (and hopefully not get into too much trouble)!
