Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy 10th Anniversary Bushwhackia!

This event starts at noon on Friday April 15th!

Your friends in the Commons event area are up to something--and they need your help!

Be warned, this post contains SPOILERS for the event! You may want to play the first couple days of the event before reading these details!

Developer Turn-in Stations

The developers of Bush Whacker 2 are running the turn-in stations. Over the course of the event, you can find Typo Reports, Bug Reports and Suggestions in the bushes to turn in for event progress. Can you flood the poor developers with enough to earn the 100% reward?

Quests

Four daily quests will help you gain progress as well, starting with the quest for Gnome parts. The developer gnome quest has been updated with 5 more gnomes. Each completion will award you a random developer gnome and there are now 32 of us to collect. Note, if you have less than 27 gnomes, you'll get 2 gnomes per turn in until you catch up.

Later on, there will be a daily quest to test your Bush Whacker knowledge with trivia questions, featuring 6 new questions! Plus the return of Linus (from Halloween) who will have a sweet reward and of course, 10 years of whacking bushes has taken its tole, so it's best if you help to replant.

Familiar friends, like Nate and Kaine, will also have quests as the event goes one.

Costume Contest

Do you have a favourite outfit from among the all the Custom Items over the years? Well, you can now show them off!

New this year, you can ask Alexis what your current bracket is if you're participating in the day's contest. Brackets are top 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 500+.

The Cake Isn't a Lie!

If you can complete the event, you'll earn the lucky Anniversary Flower Box!

    The more times you help him, the better your reward at the end of the event. His quest can be reset with the VIP power to reset daily quests.

  • Will this event repeat next year?
    Good question! We'll tell you next year!

  • How does the Costume contest work?
    You can enter the contest once per day. Once you've entered you cannot change your entry, so choose wisely.

Winners get a unique title and an energy pack, but cannot enter the contest again for 3 days.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Doing turn-ins at the 3 stations and completing quests for the NPCs in the area.

    Just keep whacking bushes and critters. The Holiday Item Runes and Pets will help attract them as well or you can use a VIP Voucher or Token on the Event Drops boon.

    No, you don't have to. They just allow you to gain event progress faster.

  • When will the last quest unlock?
    The last event quest will unlock on April 24th.

  • 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.

Celebrate Bush Whacker 2's 8th Anniversary! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

As some of you may know, April 18th marks the day BW2 was first released.

We sometimes run a full Anniversary event, but this year, as with other years where Easter doesn't come early, we're dialing the party back to a small developer celebration in the Commons where the Theater currently stands.

Much like the 7th anniversary, you'll be able to get cake, buy items from past anniversary celebrations from Nick, and complete Georgia's quest to get 4 new developer gnomes.

The celebration will start at 1 PM (PDT) on Friday April 17th and end at noon (PDT) on Sunday April 19th. Don't miss out!

Lastly, we'd like to thank you for being such an amazing community.
