COTLI: Emo's New Moon Tier 7 

    It's close to midnight, and something Emo's lurking in the dark...
    Under full moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart!

Wait — this thriller night has happened six times before! And it's back again tonight! Emo's New Moon has returned, bringing ghosts and ghouls to the neighborhood schools where Crusaders fight for their lives from now until November 9th at noon Pacific!

Emo's New Moon 7 introduces Xochitl, La Llorona the latest Tier 7 Crusader and brings back Crooked Crow, The Evanescent, Trixie the Treater, Viktor the Vampire, Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul, Fright-o-Tron 4000, Wendy the Witch, and Jack O'Lantern!

New Tier 7 Crusader: Xochitl, La Llorona

Tags: Event, Female, Demon, Supernatural, Support, Gold, Evil

Rayna, Snickette and Morrigan were off hiking in a forest they'd found on the edge of a desert, exploring the interesting foliage and chatting away. The sun, still visible through the canopy, bathed the trees in a warm glow.

As they ventured further down the path, Rayna started getting an eerie feeling and glanced around, but all she noted was that the light seemed a little less bright. She watched as Snickette and Morrigan ran forward to investigate a stream that ran alongside the path and her feeling of wrongness grew stronger.

Right before Rayna's eyes, Snickette was suddenly dragged under the water. Morrigan tried to grab her friend's feet but Snickette was already gone. Rayna raced up to the water and pulled Morrigan behind her, readying a Fire Storm charge, which she directed at the spot where she could still see Snickette's cloak.

Nothing immediately happened. 5 heartbeats...10 heartbeats….20 heartbeats, and then the water erupted, revealing a ghostly figure.

"Give me the other child," it rasped. Rayna and Morrigan exchanged puzzled looks. The ghost pointed at Morrigan.

"Oi, I ain't no child ghostie," Morrigan said. "I'm a leprechaun, thank ye very much. And so's my friend you got there. Give her back!"

"I'm not a ghost, I'm Xochitl, La Llorona!" the ghost announced. Rayna and Morrigan looked at her blankly. The ghost hissed and tears started flowing down her cheeks. "Surely you must have heard of me?"

"Sorry dearie, but we've been lots of places and can't learn the myths of all of 'em," Morrigan replied. "Now, give back my friend!" Rayna readied another Fire Storm charge and gestured toward the ghost.

The ghost clenched her fists and the river splashed around her, but then she let out a sigh. With a flick of her wrist, a drenched Snickette was thrown from the river and started choking out water on the bank. "Fine, have her back. Just no more fire." She started to drift back down into the water.

Sucking in a breath of air, Snickette gasped "Treasure!" and Xochitl paused. More coughs racked her small frame, but Snickette managed to say, "the ghost had a lot of treasure down there."

Xochitl raised an eyebrow. "Those trinkets? They just happen to collect around me."

The three crusaders exchanged looks. Treasure was always handy. "Say, how about you come with us for a little while?" Rayna asked as she dismissed her Fire Storm. "I think you might have some fun."

Xochitl looked at the river and the tranquil forest. It had been getting a bit quiet lately, as the rumours had started to spread. "I'm in."

Xochitl, La Llorona is a Support and Gold Crusader. When you want to add her to your formation, you can find her in slot 24.

New Tier 7 Objectives

  • Recruit Xochitl, La Llorona | Xochitl, La Llorona takes up a slot in the formation. Wendy the Witch and Jack O'Lantern start in the formation, and can't be removed. Only Wendy can do DPS. Xochitl, La Llorona damages all Crusaders in formation by 10% of their max health every second. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Bullet Hell on Ready Player Two to complete. Beat area 650.

  • Ghost Story | Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul and Fright-o-Tron 4000 start in the formation, and can't be removed. Aside from locked-in crusaders, only Demon, Evil or Magical Crusaders can be used. Three old ladies occupy slots in the formation, telling ghost stories. They shift positions every 100 areas. Ghostbeard is curious if he stars in any of the stories and spawns randomly, scaring the old ladies and causing them to disable the DPS of adjacent Crusaders for 10 seconds. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Washed Up on World's Wake to complete. Beat area 750.

  • Malignant | Viktor the Vampire and Trixie the Treater start in the formation, and can't be removed. Aside from locked-in crusaders, only Demon, Evil or Magical Crusaders can be used. The play area randomly goes pitch black, and a random effect occurs before light returns. A camera monster spawns to take your picture to commemorate the moment. While the camera is alive, your gold find is reduced to 0. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Washed Up on World's Wake to complete. Beat area 800.

  • Hex | The Evanescent starts in the formation, and can't be removed. Aside from the locked-in crusader, only Demon, Evil or Magical Crusaders can be used. The formation has been changed. A witch occupies a slot in the formation. If you take longer than 20 seconds to clear the area, she wakes up and wipes your formation. Note: This will require having purchased the max level of the Arithmagician Talent to complete. Beat area 850.

  • Tooth Fairy | Crooked Crow starts in the formation, and can't be removed. Aside from the locked-in crusader, only Demon, Evil or Magical Crusaders can be used. One lucky kid occupies a slot in the formation. The evil witch spawns randomly and scares the kid, causing the upgrades and formation abilities of adjacent Crusaders to be disabled for 10 seconds. Note: This will require having purchased the max level of the Arithmagician Talent to complete. Beat area 900.

More info

You'll have until Tuesday, November 9th at 12:00 PM Pacific Time to complete Emo's New Moon 7!

For more info on previous Emo's New Moon Crusaders and objectives check out the Emo's New Moon 6 blog post.

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Halloween Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop All Tier chests. Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4, Tier 5, Tier 6, and Tier 7 Crusaders will only appear in All Tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

BW2: Halloween Event, 2021 Edition! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

The Haunted Mansion Has Materialized!

Who doesn't love a good haunted mansion? Well, that's what Halloween in Bushwhackia is all about! But to decorate your very own, you need to do what you do best! Go out into the world and whack bushes to find Pumpkins. Once you have found a patch of pumpkins, you can buy decorations from Glenda outside the mansion, or from the "Store" button while you're in Build Mode inside. Once you feel you've got enough, start laying out your design inside. (You can also purchase the same decorations for Bush Bucks from the Cop in the event area.)

You do not have to place all your collected decorations on display in the Mansion in order for them to count towards "Halloween Collector," they will count so long as they are within your haunted house inventory.

The goal is to scare the 8 children standing in front of the house, all of varying levels of bravery. The more you scare them, the more candy you'll earn in return. And you're going to want that candy so you can trade it for the custom items at the event store! You can try scaring them every 20 hours after you scared them the first time.

Glenda the Good Witch isn't just for buying decorations with Pumpkins. You will also be getting several quests from her throughout the event for special interactive decorations. As you complete each of her four quests, you can request help from your friends* by talking to the Construction Worker to increase the decoration's scariness.

The Haunted Mansion Photo Contest

The Haunted Mansion Photo Contest will be starting on Wednesday October 27th on Codename Games only! You'll need 300 mansion spookiness before you can submit a screenshot, and at least 10 items placed in your mansion.

In case you're wanting to keep your decorations secret until it's finished, you can now prevent or allow friends from visiting your mansion by talking to the contest NPC and selecting either "Don't let anyone visit my mansion!" or "Allow friends to visit my mansion!" respectively.

Gotta Collect them all!

What can possibly make your house scarier? How about some Creatures which wander around your mansion! Each creature will become available for a set amount of dates which you can then request from friends* by talking to the the Cop.

Creatures are available on the following schedule:
Black Cats - AVAILABLE at Event launch, UNTIL Sun Oct 24, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Witches - AVAILABLE Sun Oct 24, Noon PDT UNTIL Tues Oct 26, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Zombies - AVAILABLE Tues Oct 26, Noon PDT UNTIL Thurs Oct 28, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Bats - AVAILABLE Thurs Oct 28, Noon PDT UNTIL Sat Oct 30, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Spiders - AVAILABLE Sat Oct 30, Noon PDT UNTIL Mon Nov 1, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Ghost Butler - AVAILABLE Mon Nov 1, Noon PDT UNTIL Wed Nov 3, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Franken-Dogs - AVAILABLE Wed Nov 3, Noon PDT UNTIL the Event End

*The Sparkly Vampire is still available for Bush Bucks if you want it in your haunted house.

Candy! Candy! Candy!

To buy the custom items, you need your Candy! Not only do you get it from scaring those insolent little kiddies, you also net some from completing the various quests given to you by the Halloween NPCs hanging out in the event area!

Plus from Sunday October 31st until the end of the event, you can hunt down denizens of Bushwhackia and Trick-or-Treat with them for Candy goodness! There will be a spooky character standing in front of a pile of Candy in each of the major areas! NPCs have been added up to the Prismatic Passage region!

New for 2021:

If you can complete the event with 100%, you'll earn the Halloween Mannequin Base!

And the witch has a new special item to craft for your haunted mansion in their new Cerberus Duty quest. You can copy a permanent version of it for your ranch in the Fox's Moulder Most Foul quest line. There's also 2 new Haunted Mansion decorations: The Danger Sign and Wall Torch.

You can now prevent or allow friends from visiting your mansion by talking to the contest NPC and selecting either "Don't let anyone visit my mansion!" or "Allow friends to visit my mansion!" respectively.

You can also find a new trick-or-treater somewhere in the Prismatic Passage!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I find the Pumpkins?
    Just keep whacking. The Holiday Item runes and pets will help attract them as well.

  • How do I decorate my Mansion?
    You need to whack up Pumpkins. You can buy decorations from Glenda in the event area, or from the Store when you're in Build mode inside the Mansion. Once you have decorations, you can place them like you're decorating your ranch using Build mode.

  • How do I scare the Kids?
    Just keep buying decorations and getting friends to up the scare level of your interactive decorations. As your event progress increases, you will scare the kids more and more. As well, when you reach a certain level of scariness, the kids will elect to no longer tour your house.

  • Does the Timey-Wimey watch or Time Turner affect the Kids?
    No, the kids do not have quest cooldowns, so trinket effects that work for quests will not apply to them.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Making your mansion as scary as possible by buying decorations (but you don't have to place them all.)

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