BW2: Creature Collector - Hydra Pets! 
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 hydra pets!



Head to the event area and choose one to train. You have until noon on Wednesday August 4th 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 August 2nd.

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.
- These three pets earn double the experience compared to other pets for the duration of this mini-event!

Ye Olde Creature Collector's Galleria - Pets

When you speak to Tanela Tiva in the event area, you can select the "What past pets are for sale?" chat option.

This will open a new store, which will contain 3 non-event premium pets 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 pets they've missed out on, to help you fill out your pet collection. Snag those old-school pets you're missing out on!

    It's the day before Shieldmeet and the Open Lord of Waterdeep has gone missing. Nobody has seen Laeral Silverhand in days and it is imperative that she be found before the meeting with the Masked Lords begins.

    Midsummer 4 introduces Ellywick Tumblestrum, Gnome Bard, legendary Planeswalker, and the Greatest Bard in the Multiverse, and brings back, Beadle & Grimm, the purveyors of the Pandemonium Warehouse and owners of the Giant's Bane Tavern, and the speedy hero of Baldur's Gate, Shandie Freefoot. Players have until Monday, August 2nd at 12PM PDT to complete their event unlocks and objectives.

    For more information about Year 4 Events and how they work, please check out our Year 4 Events Dev Blog.

    I. New Champion: Ellywick Tumblestrum

    Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter Sergeant Knox

      Thanks to a lucky draw from the notorious Deck of Many Things, Ellywick Tumblestrum is now the Greatest Bard in the Multiverse! Her magnificent music has dazzled beings across many planes, including royalty from the Feywild. The Summer Queen and the Queen of Air and Darkness were so moved by her performance that they gifted the bard her exquisite instrument, the beautiful lute Morningmist. She tells tales of her amazing adventures at the Witchlight Carnival, aided by her frog companion Groak.


    Ellywick is a Support, Gold Find, and Healing Champion who uses the Deck of Many Things to augment her abilities. When you want to add her to your formation you can swap her with Tyril (Slot 10).

    II. Ellywick's Stats

    Race: Gnome Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Class: Bard Gender: Female
    Age: 125

    STR: 12 DEX: 17 CON: 14
    INT: 13 WIS: 12 CHA: 20

    Role: Support, Gold Find, Healing
    Eligible for Patrons: Vajra, Strahd, Zariel
    Slot: 10 (Tyril)


    III. Ellywick's Design

    Ellywick Tumblestrum is not only a featured Planeswalker in the latest Magic: The Gathering release: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, she is also a character you may encounter in the upcoming D&D TRPG Adventure: The Wild Beyond The Witchlight. We are so excited to continue the fun that Magic started with Ellywick's debut, and get everyone up to speed on her before you run into her on your next D&D campaign!

    When we started to design Ellywick, we had the benefit of learning her backstory from The Wild Beyond Witchlight, but also what her Planeswalker Card would bring to the table. It allowed us to take inspiration from both brands' representations of Ellywick to create our own!

    Ellywick is a Support, Gold Find, and Healing Champion who you'll find in Slot 10 (Tyril). Ellywick Tumblestrum is a Gnome Bard, legendary Planeswalker, and the Greatest Bard in the Multiverse. She won that title of 'Greatest Bard in the Multiverse' from a lucky pull from the Deck of Many Things, and her interaction with that iconic Dungeons & Dragons magic item is integral to her Idle Champions design.

    Her Specializations allow you to increase the power of one of her abilities and increase the chance of drawing more beneficial cards, while her Ultimate Call Of The Feywild takes direct inspiration from her Planeswalker card, bringing 6 fey creatures forth to heal her allies and harm her enemies.

    For more information on Ellywick and her abilities, check out her Champion Spotlight!

    Year Four Variants

    • Pixie Trickery - One slot is taken up in the formation by a Pixie riding an intellect devourer, who is along to watch Ellywick do her thing.Each time a boss arrives on screen, all Champions are stunned for 5 seconds. If Ellywick is in the formation, the stun does not take effect.
      Reach Area 75.

    • Fey Harmonies — Ellywick starts in your formation. She can be moved. Every area, two Satyrs arrive to harmonize. While any Satyrs are on screen, all enemies can only be damaged by bards. Only Champions with CHA 14 or higher can be used.
      Reach Area 125.

    • Draconic Dissonance — Every area five chromatic Dragon Wyrmlings spawn with the second wave. Each type of Dragon buffs the Dragons on screen in a unique way:
      • White - When a Dragon attacks, it heals 20% of its health.
      • Blue - Increase the normal attack cooldown of Champions by .5 seconds.
      • Black - When a non-boss Dragon dies, there's a 25% chance that it immediately respawns.
      • Red - Dragons move 100% faster.
      • Green - Dragons deal 100% additional damage.

    • If Ellywick is in the formation, one fewer Wyrmling spawns in each area.
      Reach Area 175.

    See the in-game FAQ for more information!

    Idle Champion Spotlight: Ellywick Tumblestrum

    The greatest bard in the multiverse is here to sing her song of victory!

    Ellywick Tumblestrum is the latest Champion to join the Idle Champions roster with Midsummer 4! Read on to hear the music of her bardic might!

    III. Ellywick's Design

    Ellywick Tumblestrum is not only a featured Planeswalker in the latest Magic: The Gathering release: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, she is also a character you may encounter in the upcoming D&D TRPG Adventure: The Wild Beyond The Witchlight. We are so excited to continue the fun that Magic started with Ellywick's debut, and get everyone up to speed on her before you run into her on your next D&D campaign!

    When we started to design Ellywick, we had the benefit of learning her backstory from The Wild Beyond Witchlight, but also what her Planeswalker Card would bring to the table. It allowed us to take inspiration from both brands' representations of Ellywick to create our own!

    Ellywick's title of 'Greatest Bard in the Multiverse' is a powerful title, and it's all based on a lucky pull from the Deck of Many Things. Thanks to the Moon card, she was granted the ability to cast a wish spell, and as those of us lucky enough to wield that power in a D&D game know, a wish spell is not something you cast lightly. She used her wish to become the Greatest Bard in the Multiverse, and join an elite set of bards in Idle Champions, including Calliope, Birdsong, Vlahnya, Paultin, Qillek, Freely, Hew Maan, Orisha, and of course: Deekin. Well, maybe she didn't use the wish spell to join our motley crew, but it was at least a fun side effect!

    Because The Deck of Many Things was so integral to her backstory, we leaned heavily on it for her design. The Deck of Many Things is filled with cards that are both beneficial and detrimental, and as Ellywick progresses with the Champions, she pulls a random card from the deck, bringing those effects to the rest of the party! They might buff her Powerful Following which increases the damage of Champions in the column behind her, embolden her Greatest Song In The Multiverse which reduces the health of enemies, or bring extra luck to her Fortunate Soul ability which increases how much gold is found. But there is a small chance a card will be pulled that will make enemies faster and more powerful! There are 5 cards she can pull from the Deck of Many Things, and we took inspiration from both Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons with how those cards affect both Ellywick and the formation.

    Her Specializations allow you to increase the power of one of her abilities and increase the chance of drawing more beneficial cards, while her Ultimate Call Of The Feywild takes direct inspiration from her Planeswalker card, bringing 6 fey creatures forth to heal her allies and harm her enemies.

    IV. Ellywick's Abilities

    Basic Attack

    • Quick Strum — Ellywick strums her lute, Morningmist, three times in quick succession, sending out three streaks of magical musical energy that damages random enemies.

    • Powerful Following — Ellywick increases the damage of Champions in the column behind her by 100%. This ability is increased by 10% for each Knight stack that Ellywick has, stacking additively and applying multiplicatively.
    • Greatest Song In The Multiverse — Ellywick plays music that emboldens the hearts of her allies and saps the will of her enemies. This ability decreases the max health of enemies by 50%. For every 5 Moon stacks the enemy health debuff is applied again, stacking multiplicatively with itself.

Once they are gathered, Powerful Following is increased by 200% for 15 seconds and all Champions adjacent to Ellywick are healed for 50% of their max health. After 15 seconds they dash off again to the right, dealing damage to any remaining or newly spawned enemies.

    VI. Conclusion

    It was an absolute pleasure to get the opportunity to reveal Ellywick Tumbestrum's card for Magic the Gathering: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms!

    COTLI: Song of Thrones 6! 


    Click...click...click...from out of the depths of the mountain cave scurries your newest Crusader friend.

    A Song of Thrones 6 has arrived, bringing with it the hard worker, Zuczek the Fire-Blooded.

    This year's event runs until Tuesday, July 27th at 12:00 PM Pacific Time (UTC -7), introducing Zuczek the Fire-Blooded and bringing back Imani Saskien, Holddoor, The Wolf King, RoboQueen, Zombie Winter, Leerion, the Royal Dwarf, and Brogon, Prince of Dragons!

    New Tier 6 Crusader: Zuczek the Fire-Blooded

    Tags: Event, Female, Animal, Support, Supernatural, Good


    Deep down in the mountainside, where no human was supposed to have been able to reach, Zuczek and her hive lived. A harmless worker drone, Zuczek was off gathering supplies when the slaughter happened. She felt the deaths through the hivemind as one by one her fellows were killed. She rushed back, her anxiousness making her claws slip and slide on the stone as she scurried along.

    Zuczek burst into the entrance of the home cave and managed to glimpse a view of a man-like figure just before the cavern erupted with a burst of light which knocked her out. When she woke up, her worker's body was now covered in a warrior's carapace and a new fire flooded her veins - a fire for revenge. Whatever miracle had saved her life was bittersweet, but if she transformed once, maybe in time she could change again. She tidied up what remained of the corpses of her family into the burial chamber, and then left the cave for good, looking for the creature that did this to them.

    By joining your crusaders on their travels, she hopes to one day find her nemesis.

    Zuczek the Fire-Blooded is a Support Crusader. When you want to add her to your formation, you can find them in slot 37.
