BW2: It's Christmas Time 2022! 
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.

To the North Pole!

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!

Fueled By Candy Canes!

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.

Delivery!

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.

And much much more!

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!


Sasha has the power to gift your friends!

New for 2022

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 house to deliver presents to
- a new item to steal
- and more!

Christmas Flower Box!

Get 100% completion this event to collect the final Holiday Flower Box of 2022!

BW2: Creature Collector - Ahuizotl 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 mythical ahuizotl mounts!



Head to the event area and choose one to train. You have until noon on Wednesday December 7th 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 December 5th.

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 mounts earn double the experience compared to other mounts for the duration of this mini-event!
- Expiring mounts cannot have their bonuses swapped.

Ye Olde Creature Collector's Galleria - Mounts

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: Thankful Thanksgiving Event 2022 
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!

Finding a Feast

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 Desserts 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.

Turkey Trouble

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.

Harvests of the World

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 later in the event for a parade!

Post-Thanks

Of course, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the Black Friday questline introduced in a previous year, and an appliance for all those leftovers!

New for 2022

If you can complete the event with 100%, you'll earn the Thanksgiving Flower Box!


A New Balloon

There's a new balloon in this year's parade! However, the parade organizer will likely need help getting it ready like the others...

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!
