BW2: Creature Collector - Utahraptor 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 vicious utahraptor mounts!



Head to the event area and choose one to train. You have until noon on Wednesday February 28th 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 February 26th.

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: Be our 2024 Valentine? 
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.

Getting Organized

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!

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 & Sasha <3

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, or celebrate their anniversary.

Your Secret Admirer

And who is that mysterious note from this year?

Like Rabbits

Aaron's bunnies, Cinnamon and Snowball, have run off and are making like, well rabbits! This is a challenging quest that might take you the better part of the event to complete, as you've got to catch not only Cinnamon and Snowball, but their 100 little bunny babies as well! Good luck!

Nate's Complicated Relationship

Nate's needs your help setting up a date with his one true love: Adventure! When he returns from his "date", he'll bring you back a Trophy for his sister Natalie. Later on, one of the girls will need some support after her Kindler Date dumps her. Ice Cream daily quests ought to help, until it's time to help them 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.

Battle of the Bands!

If you're all caught up on Jimmie's quest series, he'll challenge Marvin to a battle of the bands! You're the judge, assuming you can stay conscious during their face-melting guitar solos!

Changing Sanctuary Partners!

Now's the only change to break up with your current partner in Sanctuary Village. Sounds harsh, I know. But we've gotten requests to be able to switch who you're dating, so this is how you do it: Talk to your partner, Burl or Faun, and choose the "I think we should break up" chat option. After which you'll be able to date the other person, or even them again. Note you can only do this during the Valentine's event, and cannot do it during the Gift of Love quest.

New for 2024

This year's update includes:

- new quests featuring the dragon from Nate's birthday (see details for requirements)
- new costume items in the store!

Holiday Trees!

If you can complete the event, you'll earn this awesome 100% reward: the Valentine's Tree!

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.

Safety First

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.

Party Preparation

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!

Dragon Costuming

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.

Fire! Fire!

BW2: Lost Woods Mini-Event Jan 2024 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

The mysterious Lost Woods has returned to the Commons event area! Delve into the Lost Woods and solve puzzles area by area in search of lost fairies and earn rewards as you delve deeper and deeper.

The Lost Woods


In the Lost Woods, you whack bushes to solve field puzzles, area by area, in search of lost fairies and earn rewards as you delve deeper and deeper! Enter it via the entrance in the Commons event area.

The Lost Woods is a Dungeon with a maximum tier of 8 and no increasing bush whacking costs. These limits are added so it can fit in the limited time period of a week long mini-event.

To accommodate the different bush whacking skills of early and veteran players, you can complete the event by Tier 2, but can continue on for unique rewards if you're able.

Updates:

This year's update includes:
- Added new 100% completion ranch item
- Added new tier reward costume items
- Added year 3 sequel quest for Hyah!
- A new fairy waits at the final area
- Added last year's rewards are to "Ye Items Lost in the Woods" prior items store
- Added a spring forest subzone
- Increased Rupee reward for Hyah!'s quests and removed Gold reward
- Rebalanced Saria's satchel Rupee costs
- Can now turn in the main quest at the Skull Boy in the event area after completing all 8 tiers

What is a Dungeon?

'Endless Dungeon' is the technical term for a new system, where you enter the dungeon, complete puzzles in a series of small areas, and collect a special reward at the end, where you return to the entrance and can enter again.

When you click the entrance of a dungeon, you'll see the following popup with some details about your progress in the dungeon. Click the big arrow/doorway button to enter the dungeon!

Runs and Tiers

Each of these can be called a "run". Each run requires you complete an increasing number of areas to complete. The first might be 3 areas, the next 6, then 9, etc. These goals are called "Tiers" of the dungeon. You start at Tier 1, complete its 3 areas, and claim its reward to complete it. You can then enter it again at Tier 2.

Each area has a small reward in a silver chest, and each tier has a more unique or greater reward.

Some dungeons will have a maximum tier (like the Lost Woods), and some will not. And some dungeons will have increasing bush whacking costs (bush energy and mana whack), and some will not (like the Lost Woods).

Areas and Effects

Each area of a dungeon is randomly generated. The field, the decorations, visitors, where you enter and leave, and the 'Area Effects'.

What are Area Effects? There modifiers like what your trinkets, pets, mounts, and runes give you, but apply only when you're in the area. These could be positive or negative. Maybe increase energy odds, decreased power odds, or maybe something more weird.

If an area has effects, you can see what the area effect is by mousing over the 'E' star near your mana bar.

This mini event runs until noon on Friday January 12th. Chat about this mini-event on the forum!
