Get Cookie Energy Boxes for Charity 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

March 12th marked the founding of first Girl Scout troop in the USA. We figure this is a good time to raise money for a great organization, the Girl Guides of Canada.

This organization enables girls to be confident, resourceful and courageous, and to make a difference in the world. So, for the next two days you can buy Boxes of Girl Guide Cookies, of which 100% of our [Codename] proceeds will be donated directly to the Girl Guides of Canada. Talk to the girl guide troop in the Commons by the Town Hall to learn more.

The cookie energy boxes will be on sale until Wednesday March 15th at Noon PDT.

BW2: 2017 St. Patrick's Celebration! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Bushwhackers!

The Commons is greener than usual! That’s because the Commons Party Planning Committee is putting on a St. Patrick’s day party!

Unfortunately, the guests of honour seem to have gotten lost in the bushes. Go whack them up and help them find their way to the Event Area!

There are eight Leprechauns to whack up that will help you put on a rocking St. Patrick’s Day party! Every day the event goes on, the odds to whack them up gets larger, so you can get them all before it ends. Three of them will have turn-in stations for you to do and the others will have repeatable quests for you to do for event progress.

Unlocking throughout the event are previous year quest lines:

Mr. Keith is looking to put out his special brew again. Help him find the ingredients.

Seamus is in the mood to do some whacking of his own, but first he needs your help to make the perfect shillelagh.

Siobhan is throwing her version of an Irish Feast...but the dishes got lost in the bushes. Go find them for her!

Those poor snakes are tired of being whacked so often. Help their leader out by setting up his snake relocation program efforts.

Help Bree learn about Irish mythology!

New for 2017:

We added two new quest lines this year! Mr. Keith has some competition, and a new leprechaun friend has a fun little task for you! They will unlock as the event goes on.

Event Achievements -- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT

There are a total of FIFTEEN possible achievements to earn in the St. Patrick’s Day 2017 event.

Achievements Returning for 2017
Little Rascal - Capture a pesky missing Leprechaun.
More Little Rascals - Capture all of the pesky missing Leprechauns.
Destructive Behavior - Help 25 times at each St. Patrick's Station.

We also have 6 achievements from previous years which may be earned by spending Bush Bucks if you missed getting them the first time around.

FAQ

What are the different leprechauns?
You can whack up two types of leprechauns: hatted and non-hatted.
  • There are 8 hatted ones to find, 3 will unlock turn-in stations, and the other 5 will give you daily quests. You must manually whack these ones to capture them.

  • The non-hatted ones will drop items for you to turn into the turn-in stations. You can quick whack and mana whack non-hatted leprechauns when they appear if you wish. The non-hatted leprechauns will *always* drop some turn-in items, rather than just having a chance to.


How can I find the leprechauns?
Just keep whacking. You could whack them all up in a day if you wanted to. The odds to whack up hatted leprechauns will increase as the event goes on.

What adds to my event progress?
Turning in items to the Gold, Beer and Clover stations, and doing quests for folks in the event area.

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.

Why should I ask for friends to help boost turn-ins?
It increases the amount of progress you get from doing a turn-in.

Sleeping Animals Can Be So Cute 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

A very sleepy visitor is staying in the Commons and they're on a mission! Be sure to speak with them, as they might be giving out a unique reward for your assistance! Be quick though, as they'll only be here until Noon PST on Monday, March 6th!

We're also running two new pet packs this weekend! They've got the standard bundle of items each with a new pet. Careful with these pets though, 'cause if you stand still too long they might just fall asleep on you!

Generation 7 Pets Now Available! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Gotta find 'em all! A new selection of cute and scaly critters are now available to be your companions!

Those weirdly random abandoned eggs scattered all over Bushwachkia have been switched up and all new pets are ready to hatch when you accept the "Find an Egg" quest from Misty. She will also have all the Generation 7 eggs available to purchase for Bush Bucks during the "Find an Egg" quest.


Other changes to Misty and Hank for Generation 7:
  • Generation 6 pet hatching can now be cancelled and Misty will return the egg used to start them.

  • Generation 6 pet eggs can now be found in Quester's Satchels (with the same limitations as the Generation 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 eggs, which will still be available in satchels as well.) Generation 6 pet eggs are now more expensive to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store.

  • Hank now sells a random assortment of hatched level 1 Generation 7 pets (instead of Generation 6) for Bush Bucks in his pet store.

PAGAS changes for Generation 7:
  • Generation 7 pet eggs are available to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store, once you have hatched at least five (5) Generation 7 pets.

  • The Pet Progress dialog now includes Generation 7 pets. Another 10 new pets that all players can unlock!


And now, without further ado, the information you've all been waiting for:

Generation 7 Pets:
  • Blobfish
  • Boar
  • Chameleon
  • Crow
  • Donkey
  • Emu
  • Mandrill
  • Ocelot

Dance Dance Valentine's Day 2017 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy Valentine’s Day Bushwhackers!

The residents of the Commons are putting on a Valentine’s Day dance, so you know what that means! Helping with the set-up through one-time and daily quests, plus turn-ins!

It’s not Valentine’s without presents! Help stock the stands with Chocolates, Teddy Bears and Roses by turning in Candy Hearts as the stations unlock.

The event organizer seems a bit frazzled. Why don’t you help her out by doing her set-up quests each day? And don’t forget to keep those party supplies topped off!

Nate is looking for a date. Help him choose a girl that can put up with his antics, and help the one he doesn't pick get over her grief with some Ice Cream daily quests until it's time to help Nate’s rejected girl through the 5 stages of grief. All five quests will unlock right after each other and then she will have a new daily quest for you.

Once the Valentine's dance has started, you get to look for the partner of your choice to share a moment on the dance floor.

Jim and Sasha's relationship quests are around. If you haven't married them yet, you'll see either their Dating or Proposal quest line. If they are married, you get to help the pair pack for their honeymoon.

New for 2017

Learn how to play guitar to serenade your loved one! Also, who is that mysterious note from?

Starting next Friday, the 3 new Valentine's themed pets for this year will be available to purchase over the weekend! Can they woo your heart?

BW2: Happy Birthday Nate! 
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 2017:

We've made the Surprise Party set-up quests a little bit easier for you to navigate. Keep an eye out for the Robin with your new task daily. He also has an option to teleport to the zone where the party planners are meeting, and for the duration of the event, going to the Forest Detour won't override your current destination on your return button.

Plus, due to your overwhelming feedback, Nate's mom Elena and Natalie in the Event Zone will have daily quests for you to do as the event goes on. And be on the lookout for a new 4 part quest line later in the event!

And introducing the 100% reward for this year: lanterns! They can face either left or right for all your decorating needs! Check out the explosive Nate themed one below!



Event Achievements - POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!

There are a total FOURTEEN possible Achievements to earn in the Nate’s Birthday 2017 event:

Achievements Returning in 2017:
