New Tier 7 Crusader: Umut, the Elemental Chimera

Tags: Event, Support, Demon, Dragon, Good, Evil, Male, Female, Supernatural, Gold, Royal


Heat, searing down on you. The prickle of sweat dripping down your neck and evaporating off your exposed skin. The azure water lapping the stony shore of the beach below you looks tempting, but you're uncertain if it's safe for you to take a swim in it. You turn your attention back to the path beneath your feet as you continue to climb up the craggy hill, the slightly lighter brown dust the only indication it is actually a path. You carefully make your way to the summit, only occasionally wishing that the portal for this world had let you out closer to the spot indicated on the mysterious invitation you received, though when you reach the top and check your watch, you discover you're early.

Gazing at the sky while you recover your breath a little, you note some clouds moving towards you that you hadn't seen earlier. In fact, the sky is starting to darken more than should be possible as the clouds near the summit, the gust of metallic-smelling wind bringing them also churning the water below. Thunder starts to rumble and you glance around urgently for shelter, but there's nothing to be had.

You try to head back down the path, to not be the tallest thing around, but an invisible force keeps you on the summit. You crouch down, arms over your head and eyes closed, hoping against all hopes, but the summit fills with light as the lightning strikes, followed by a fierce crack of thunder. Curiosity gets the better of you and you open your eyes to take a peek.

A large bulky shape looms in the fog that now covers the summit, but the wind is still blowing strong, so the fog blows off quickly, revealing the mass. Three pairs of eyes meet your gaze from three separate heads.

"Leaving so soon?" the lion-looking head asks. "The meeting hasn't even started yet."

You stand up so you can get the invitation out of your pocket. "You're Umut, the Elemental Chimera?"

The snake-looking head nods at you. "Indeed. Thank you for coming."

"It's not every day an invitation randomly shows up hovering in an air bubble," you answer, shrugging. "I figured it would be worth investigating."

"Just the sort of response we like," the goat-like head chimes in. "We shall join you."

You blink and take a second to think. "Wait, what?"

Umut walks closer to you and all three heads look at you again. The lion one speaks, "We are ready to travel and have new adventures and someone who answers mysterious invitations is bound to have some good adventures. We will come with you."

You meet the gaze of each head in turn, noting the fangs glittering in their mouths and the claws on their paws. Another lightning bolt strikes the summit across from you. "Of course," you swallow. "You seem to be just what we need for our adventures as well."

All three of Umut's heads break out into wide grins. "Agreed," the heads chorus as one.

Umut, the Elemental Chimera has joined the party. When you want to use them, you can find them in seat 35.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    New for 2022:

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

    And introducing the 100% reward for this year: Holiday Flower Boxes! Collect each one and expand your garden displays! Here's one with flowers in Nate's bombastic style:

    COTLI: The Nate Before Christmas Tier 7

      O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how much you embody the rage of nature and bring the wrath of the elements down upon us all!

    New Tier 7 Crusader: Springy, the Patchwork Plush

    Tags: Event, Support, Gold, Animal, Male, Supernatural


    A new day, a new planet. You've been trekking through the tangled weeds, grasses and trees from the portal opening when you almost trip on a hard flat object in the ground. Glancing around, you see the foliage isn't as dense and you can make out a structure in the distance. As you approach, you note a sign that says " G M L" on it mounted on the side of the structure.

    You see a door and step inside, smelling an oddly familiar cinnamon and popcorn scent on the stale air. It's an alien mall! And some franchises are just that powerful. You walk in further, eyes adjusting to the gloom of dirty skylights.

    A rustling noise draws your attention. Something seems to be approaching you. As it gets closer you hear a rhythmic thumping and the tinkle of something metal hitting the tile floor. It thumps into a brighter patch of light and you see a kangaroo plushie made of assorted fabrics just before it jumps on you and you thud to the floor.

    "Friend?" the creature asks.

    "If I say yes, will you get off me?"

    The kangaroo ducks their head and carefully steps off you. "Sorry. It's been ages since someone visited."

    "You're here all alone?"

    The kangaroo hops. "There's the occasional mouse that I stomp on, but they don't talk, so they don't count."

    You scratch your head. "My friends and I are travellers, and we're a pretty large band. In the spirit of the season, would you like to join us?"

    "Would I still get to stomp things?" they ask.

    You smile. "Definitely."

    Springy, the Patchwork Plush has joined your party.


    New Tier 7 Objectives

  • Recruit Springy | Springy takes up a slot in the formation. RoboSanta and Frosty the Snowman start in the formation, and can't be removed. For every cast of Storm Rider, up to 500 casts, Frosty gets a 15% DPS boost, stacking multiplicatively. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Bullet Hell on Ready Player Two to complete. Beat area 650.

  • Island of Misfit Presents | RoboRudolph and The Dark Helper start in the formation and can't be removed. The formation has been changed. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Washed Up on World's Wake to complete. Beat area 750.

Krampus spawns randomly on non-boss areas and marks 3 random Crusaders with coal, disabling their DPS for 6 seconds.

  • My Snowman and Me | Odile, Snowflake Defender starts in the formation and can't be removed. Monsters drop less gold. A snowman occupies a slot in the formation. The snowman freezes every Crusader except for Odile. Frozen Crusaders don't contribute upgrades. A hot chocolate monster spawns on every non-boss area, the first time you enter the area. For every 88 hot chocolate monsters killed, the snowman freezes one less Crusader. Note: This will require having purchased the max level of the Arithmagician Talent to complete. Beat area 900.

      O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how angry are thy branches...!
      O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how much you embody the rage of nature and bring the wrath of the elements down upon us all!

    Once again The Nate Before Christmas blesses our doors, and this year we are visited by a princess of snow: Odile, Snowflake Defender!

    The Nate Before Christmas 6 runs until Tuesday, December 29th at 12PM PST, introducing Odile, Snowflake Defender and bringing back Frosty the Snowman, RoboSanta, The Dark Helper, RoboRudolph, Xander the Xmas Dragon, Wrena the Fair and Kris, the Enraged Elemental!

    New Tier 6 Crusader: Odile, Snowflake Defender

    Tags: Event, Magical, Female, Healer, Supernatural, Gold, Good


    In the Realm of Berwin, Odile was the first-born daughter of Queen Odessa and King Ambros. The Realm of Berwin, also known as the Domain of Winter, was one of the four realms dedicated to fighting the dark spirits of the otherrealm and protecting the spirits of the seasons. Not only were the royal family of Berwin already strong ice magic users, but when Odile was born, the Spirit of Winter itself appeared and bestowed some of its magic upon her.

    As she grew up, Odile began training in secret with her mother, but it soon became apparent that her powers were much stronger than Odessa's, even in one so young. Whispers of Odile's power made their way to the otherrealm where the Spirit of Destruction, Glut, had been resting for many years. Glut sent minions out to investigate the rumours surrounding Odile. One small shadow spirit succeeded and brought the news to its master.

    Glut attacked the realm of Berwin, laying waste to the area as he made his way to capture Odile, bringing an air of blight to the once pristine world. Odessa and Ambros managed to hold off the first wave of dark spirits, but Glut had grown in power in its time away. To buy some time and save their people, the royals decided to send Odile away, wiping her memory and transporting her to Earth. Craving the power within, Glut abandoned its siege and followed Odile's trail through the realms though it would take time to find her.

    Odile, now living with her new glamoured family as Odette, continued to grow up and lead a normal, mundane life. But Glut's minions eventually stumbled into the right realm and found the missing princess, causing the Spirit of Winter to break the seal her parents had placed. Odile remembered her powers, her family, and with her memories regained, she stepped into her role of Snowflake Defender, ready to help the Crusaders on their quest.

    BW2: Celebrate Nate's Birthday Event, 2020 Edition! 
    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    New for 2020:

    We've added a new challenging quest unlocking as the event goes on, involving an amulet.

    And introducing the 100% reward for this year: Holiday Pet Parts! Collect them all to create a unique pet! Check out the part for Nate's Birthday below!

    COTLI: The Nate Before Christmas 5! 

      O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how angry are thy branches...!
      O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how much you embody the rage of nature and bring the wrath of the elements down upon us all!

    Once again The Nate Before Christmas blesses our doors, and this year we are visited by the rage of nature: Kris, the Enraged Elemental!

    The Nate Before Christmas 5 runs until Tuesday, December 31st at 12PM PST, introducing Kris, the Enraged Elemental and bringing back Frosty the Snowman, RoboSanta, The Dark Helper, RoboRudolph, Xander the Xmas Dragon, and Wrena the Fair!

    New Tier 5 Crusader: Kris, the Enraged Elemental

    Kris, the Enraged Elemental brings all the buffs to the formation you've come to expect from an angry tree: they reduce damage for Crusaders the furthest from them with True North, they are able to redirect angry monsters away from them with their Decorations, and they increase party damage with Festering Foliage.

    But that's not all: the Fresh Air that Kris brings increases Global DPS for each Flora Crusader in the formation, including Kris, and they are able to increase the maximum health of Crusaders with Forest Furor. Take Root prevents your DPS and Click Damage from dropping, while Winter Vigil can revive your formation once per area to save the day!

    New Tier 5 Objectives

    • Recruit Kris, the Enraged Elemental | Kris, the Enraged Elemental takes up a slot in the formation. Only Flora Crusaders can do DPS.
      Reach area 400.

    • Home Alone | You can only use one Crusader in the formation.
      Reach area 450.

    • O Tannenbaum | All enemies are various tree monsters, and all bosses are various tree bosses. Enemies spawn in larger waves. Area quest requirements doubled.
      Reach area 475.

    • It's Elemental | Five different new elemental monsters spawn. Only projectile damage can kill these elementals, but all crusaders are allowed on the objective.
      Reach area 500.

    • Koliada | Two carolers take up places in formation. Sun monsters spawn randomly and either drop lots of gold or reduce your gold find.
      Reach area 525.

    Help! Where’s the Loot?

    Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Christmas 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 Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4 and Tier 5 Crusaders will only appear in All Tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

    What About Older Event Crusaders?

    Previously-available The Nate Before Christmas Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of The Nate Before Christmas 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:


    Players will have until Tuesday, December 31st at 12:00PM PST to complete The Nate Before Christmas 5. Good luck!
