BW2: Christmas Time Is Here! Christmas Event 2020 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

'Tis the Season for Giving!

Get into the giving mood of the holiday season by tackling the Bushwhackia Christmas event.

You'll want to get started by heading to the event area in the Commons to meet up with the stranded elf and help him fix his teleporter. (It's delicate, OK?) Once you've got it operational, you'll be able to make the journey far to the North Pole where you'll find a bevy of characters who need your special skills to make the holiday celebrations work!

Your primary task will be helping the elves make presents by bringing them Candy Canes (that you find in bushes), but there is a veritable smorgasbord of holiday related quests to complete as well. All of these quests will unlock over the course of the event, with the last ones unlocking on Christmas Day.

Once you've found reindeer chow for the poor reindeer, then you can help out Santa by delivering a present to a random house daily.

New for 2020

This year's update includes: a new Christmas tree for your ranch received from completing the Decorate Tree quest; a new Snowman companion from the Build a Snowman quest; another custom item for ice fishing; a new dress-up achievement; a new item to steal; and more!

Christmas Pet Piece

Get 100% completion this event to collect the final Holiday Pet Piece of 2020! After you’ve collected all 13 holiday 2020 pet pieces, return to the Commons to find someone to help you assemble them into the Holidoll Cat companion!


The Christmas Pet Piece!


Presents all Around!!

Here's the event that started the gifting tradition! Once a day, if you have excess tokens, you can send a Present to a friend! These presents will contain a random amount of gold, energy, mana, power and come with some other treats as well. If you want to send more presents in a day, it will cost you a few Bush Bucks. Talk to Sasha in the North Pole to learn more!

- 10 new pets are now in rotation for Misty’s pet raising quests!
- Added 9 new unique variations of the gen 13 pets to the PAGAS egg store.
- Added a PAGAS Pet Progress reward tiers for 700 and 750 unique pets.

- Can now trade DOWN your rarer DNAs by talking to Vincent as choose the ‘I'd like to trade my DNA’ then ‘I'd like to trade DOWN my DNA’ chat options.

- All stores have been improved to show how many of a pet or mount you've owned or the amount of the inventory or ranch item you have when you mouse over the store item image!

- Fixed trinket set buttons in your Inventory not updating to show you’ve equipped one when using the hotkeys.

- Fixed your mount not facing downwards when you equip a trinket set.

- Fixed not being able to re-equip the last trinket set you equipped after changing your trinkets.

- Changed trinket set hotkeys from Q,W,E,R,T to 1,2,3,4,5 to better map to the numbers on the buttons themselves, and prevent accidental switching when mis-clicking the chat sidebar.

- Fixed longer set bonus lists going off the screen when viewing them in your inventory. They are now split into multiple columns if they have more than 10 bonuses.

- Enlarged trinket set slot preview images.

- On the Desktop Launcher, added an exclamation mark on the Options (the gear) menu buttons that shows when you have active tickets. Red for waiting for response, Green for unread responses.

- Added a more descriptive error message for some errors previously just described as “invalid parameters”. This will hopefully help with debugging a timestamp error that might be happening rarely when using the Desktop Launcher.

Creature Collector - Reindeer! (December 4th, 2020)

- Rerunning Coppers of the Creature Collector mini event with 3 new pets.

- Fixed pet levels not counting when you’re ready to turn in the Proliferating Potential quest.
- Creature Collector’s Cache store now has “Misc” and “Customization” tabs.

(As of Dec 2nd)

- Added a more aggressive End of Flash notice above the game on web, prompting usage of the Desktop Launcher. We just want you to be prepared <3 (As of Dec 2nd)

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 Reindeer!



Head to the event area and choose one to train. You have until noon on Wednesday December 9th 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 pet pack, available starting Monday December 7th.

Train hard, Bush Whackers!

Update: The training quests now unlock at noon on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, instead of 20 hours after the last one is completed. Those busy on the weekends can still catch up!

Note: 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.

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!

BW2: Thankful Thanksgiving Event 2020 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Thanksgiving Time!

The residents of The Commons are preparing for a massive feast to celebrate the end of harvest season, and of course they need your expertise at finding things in bushes!

First and foremost, it's all about helping the chefs fill their food stations to the brim - and beyond. There's three of them for three types of meals, so you'll be collecting Meat, Veggies and of course Desserts to feed the hungry masses of Bushwhackia! Can you make all the Pristine Food? Keep doing turn-ins to achieve it!

On the subject of food - four of the guests have promised they would bring a dish to share, but they've forgotten ingredients.

And then, there's the problem of the Turkeys. Apparently, they need to be rescued in some fashion, so you'll need to get on that. You have the whole event to complete it.

Once again we're celebrating other harvest festivals around the world and hosting an inflatable surprise. They'll unlock as the event goes on. And tune later in the event for a parade!

Of course, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the Black Friday questline introduced in a previous year, and a fridge to store all those leftovers!

If you can complete the event with 100%, you'll earn the Thanksgiving Pet Piece! Collect all 2020 holiday pet pieces to craft a unique pet!
