Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Joyous Easter Bushwhackers!

Easter is coming to the Commons again and you know what that means! Competition!

There will also be two new daily quests that unlock this year! Grab Jelly Beans and Peeps every 20 hours for extra Easter progress and tokens!

Post you Easter comments and questions here!


How do I participate in the Easter Egg Hunt?
Talk to the NPC under the Easter Egg Hunt banner to be teleported to the hunting zone.

What do I do in the Easter Egg Hunt zone?
Click on all the crates, barrels, rocks and bushes trying to find as many eggs as you can. There are only 20 eggs hidden in all the doodads.

How do I get a perfect score in the Easter Egg Hunt?
You need to collect all 20 eggs - basically not letting any of the other hunters find any.

I’m too slow at the Hunt. How can I be better?
The NPC with the wizard hat in the event area of the Commons sells boosts for Easter Tokens. Speed up your character and distract the other hunters with his wares. Also, travel in a circle, starting in the area closest to where everyone else is being distracted.

When will the last quest unlock?
All quests will be unlocked by the 10th day of the event.

What contributes to my 100% progress?
Turning in the Unpainted Eggs, the Dye and the Wax as well as completing the Easter Egg Hunt and quests for the folks in the event area.

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

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 the achievements available and how to get them?
Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

When can I do the World Wide Easter Egg Hunt?
The World Wide Easter Egg Hunt starts on Easter Sunday - April 5th - and lasts for the rest of the event.

Where do I find World Wide Easter Egg Hunt Eggs?
Once the hunt has started, you can find eggs by clicking them in many of the zones in the world. Eggs are hidden behind rocks and trees and in tricky to access locations in normal zones, secret areas, and adventure zones all over the world. Not every area has an egg hidden in it. There are 60 eggs hidden throughout the world in total, but you'll need to be done most of the content in the game to find them all.

Generation 4 PETS and a Sale! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Overrun with Tigers and Wolves and Giraffes, oh my? The new Generation 4 pets are here!

Misty's new shipment of pet eggs has finally made it to Bushwhackia for you to hatch when you accept the "Find an Egg" quest. She will also have all the Generation 4 eggs available to purchase for Bush Bucks during the "Find an Egg" quest.

Other changes to Misty and Hank for Generation 4:
  • Misty will no longer let players abandon Gen 3 pet eggs that they are hatching (they're now too rare). Only current generation pet eggs can be abandoned during hatching. Please note that if you're in the middle of hatching a pet, then that egg will still hatch into whatever pet it would have been before.

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

  • Hank now sells a random assortment of Generation 4 pets (instead of Generation 3) for Bush Bucks.

PAGAS changes for Generation 4:
  • Generation 4 pet eggs are now available to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store, however you cannot buy any of them until you have at least five (5) Generation 4 pets.

  • The Pet Progress dialog now includes Generation 4 pets. 10 new pets that all players can unlock!

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

Generation 4 Pets:
  • Black and White Palomino Pony
  • Butterfly
  • Cobra
  • Dragonfly
  • Ferret
  • Orange Kitty
  • Otter
  • Polar Bear
  • Salamander
  • Snail

  • Over the next five (5) days we will rotate through 40 pets from a variety of sources.
  • Each pet will be available for a limited time and will only appear once in the sale (so if you see a pet you want, make sure you grab it!),
  • As each pet is made available, we'll post a reminder on Facebook, Twitter and in Chat (during normal business hours), so you'll know when the pets will swap in/out,
  • All pets are available for Bush Bucks.
  • *New for this sale* For 24 hours, you can vote for which pet will get the biggest discount in the next 24 hours.
    • So the first voting cycle will run from Friday March 20th at Noon PDT until Saturday March 21st at Noon PDT, and the discounts will be applied for the winning pet until the next vote ends Sunday March 22nd at Noon PDT.
    • The final vote will end at Tuesday March 24th at Noon PDT for the pets that will have a discount until the whole sale ends.
  • Also available is a Pet Treat Pack! It contains 4 level 20 Pet Treats, a Pet Rune which boosts the XP you receive for your pet by 50% and lasts 7 days when equipped, and 100 Bush Bucks! A $55 value for only $20!
