BW2: It's Christmas Time 2023! 
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.

To the North Pole!

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!

Fueled By Candy Canes!

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.

Delivery!

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.

Gingerbread Housing

Gingerbread Men are settling down in the event area and need your help gathering construction materials! Perhaps they'll build you a Gingerbread House of your own?

And much much more!

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!


Sasha has the power to gift your friends!

New for 2023

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 house to deliver presents to

- and more!

Read the change log for the full list!

BW2: Endangered Species Mini Event VI! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Endangered Species - Sixth Encounter

Habitats are changing, and it's endangering many different animal species. Carson Tiva has found that three different endangered species can currently be found in Bushwhackia, as they search for new places to live.

Three Endangered Species

Barred Bandicoot - An endangered nocturnal morsupial in decline from habitat loss and predation

California Condor - A New World vulture critically endangered from habitat loss and poaching

Florida Panther Cub - An endangered big cat hunted to near extinction



Collect Conservation Data

Like you did during Carson's last visit, apply your bush whacking skills to help them collect Conservation Data on these unique animals for the limited time they're here. To gather data, you just have to give them a whack with your sword or other whacking implement. With said data, Carson Tiva can use it to try and help what's left of these unique animals.

Which species you encounter in the fields will be random, so if you fall behind in finding one of the three animals, you can start one of Carson Tiva's pursuit quests. You can do one pursuit quest every 20 hours.

Earn Rewards

Your efforts will not go unrewarded! Carson Tiva will trade you for this data in their store, plus you'll earn a unique plaque for your contributions! Like event ribbons, this plaque will increase your maximum energy based on your performance.

Collect data, complete the achievements, and earn rewards!

In addition to a new set of species, Bush Buck Bundle, and energy boosting plaque, you can earn a new Munching Camel ranch item reward!

Limited Time Only

Go to the event area of the Commons to get started, and gather as much data as you can before noon on Tuesday November 28th, Pacific Time!

BW2: Return of the Butterfly Garden Gathering! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

A Garden For Butterflies

The butterflies are out there somewhere, and this weekend's visitor is looking to attract them to the event area! This is their SIXTH visit, so complete their tasks and get another one of their butterfly companions!

There are a total of 7 companion options to choose from, should you manage to attract them all to the event area in time.

Plus, if you've missed any of the past runs of this quest and cannot wait for another butterfly companion, you can spend 150 Bush Bucks to unlock the choice of another, including the other quest rewards! You can only do this till you have 6 of these butterflies.

Butterfly Gardening

Head to the event area in the Commons to get started. Attract different species to the event area in two ways:
1 - Help Harrow in the event area with her quests, unlocking at Noon PST (UTC-8) on Saturday and Sunday. There are 2 species to unlock this way.
2 - Collect Rare Flowers! You can do this after completing Harrow's first quest, available on Friday. There are 5 species to unlock this way, which will be much more challenging to get!

At the end of this colourful quest, you'll get to choose a butterfly companion from the different species you attract.

You have until noon on Tuesday to attract as many as you can, and until noon on Wednesday to choose one as a companion. Good luck!

BW2: Thankful Thanksgiving Event 2023 
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!

Finding a Feast

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.

Turkey Trouble

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.

Harvests of the World

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!

Post-Thanks

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

New for 2023

This year's update includes:

- new pet and costume VIP rewards!
- new costume items in the store!
- new ranch items in the store!
- new pet packs!
- new mount packs!
- new 2023 holiday 100% reward!
- new stove to repair!
- new parade float!

Holiday Rubber Duckies

If you can complete the event, you'll earn this awesome 100% reward: The Thanksgiving Ducky! Collect them all to fill out the holiday duck pond, which you can purchase in the event store and prior items store!

A New Balloon

There's a new balloon in this year's parade! However, the parade organizer will likely need help getting it ready like the others...

A New Stove

Another littering dragon has tossed an appliance, crashing it into the event area. But one dragon's trash is Fatima's treasure! Help her repair this appliance and take it to your ranch!
