Gratuity Leveling Update (August 30st, 2018)

- You will need room to gain the energy, or have the VIP power Leveller's Boon enabled.

- Added 6 new Achievements to the General category regarding Gratuity Levels.

- Fixed the Honey Pool Mini Golf Piece ranch item not showing properly in the Ye Isle Puttery Boutique store.

- Fixed the visual offset of the Honey Pool Mini Golf Piece when rotated vertically.

COTLI: Littlefoot's Big Adventure 3 

It's time for another adventure! Once more the Crusaders journey into the wilderness for their annual camping trip, disconnecting from their wi-fi and heading out into the great outdoors. Join Littlefoot and the gang on an outdoor escapade to unlock Rosie the Rocklechaun, our latest tier 3 Crusader!

Littlefoot's Big Adventure 3 runs until Tuesday, September 4th at 12:00pm PDT, and introduces Rosie the Rocklechaun!

New Tier 3 Crusader: Rosie the Rocklechaun

A small, muscly rock-leprechaun, Rosie the Rocklechaun is a tank support who turns to stone in order to tank damage, massively boosting party DPS in the process and allowing her to be healed up.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier One and Two Crusaders by completing their respective Tier One and Two Objectives. Ranger Rayna, Littlefoot, Penny the Park Planner, and Beary McBearFace will be available to unlock while Littlefoot's Big Adventure 3 is live!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit Rosie the Rocklechaun | Rosie and two rocks take up three slots in the formation. Every 25 areas, Rosie randomly changes spots with one of the rocks. She decreases the damage of adjacent Crusaders by 99.99%. The other rocks are just blockers. Reach area 500.

  • Landslide | Quest requirements are doubled, enemies spawn twice as quickly, deal four times damage, move eight times as fast, and have sixteen times their normal health. Reach area 600.

  • Rock 'n Roll | In non-boss areas, invulnerable rocks spawn and slowly roll towards the formation. If they reach the formation, you wipe and go back an area. Reach area 650.

  • Tank-it to the Limit | Only tanking and healing Crusaders, along with the Bush Whacker, Nate Dragon, and the four other Littlefoot's Big Adventure Event Crusaders, can be used. Reach area 700.

  • Stratification | Reduce the DPS of all Crusaders based on bench seat, with the first slot reduced to 1/4 normal damage, the second slot to 1/16th normal damage, third slot to 1/64th, etc. Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Bigfoot 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 and Tier 3 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.

You'll have until Tuesday, September 4th at 12:00pm PDT to complete Littlefoot's Big Adventure 3!

BW2: Dog Days of Summer 2018 Edition 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer

The residents of the Commons want to close out summer with a blast! That big old event field sits there empty most of the time anyways. Help them build an awesome temporary pool to chill out beside. Once you've completed all three building quests, the residents will come in and there will be 3 turn-in stations where you can bring Towels, Sunscreen and Life Rings to get event tokens for buying this year's custom items!

Check out the Companion Racing Track once it becomes available, and you'll be able to bet on pet races! You can only win the prizes once per day though.

Later on in the event, you'll need to help an NPC train their unlikely companion to participate in the race!

Nate's New Puppies!
Plus, foster an adorable puppy for Nate. It seems he's accidentally ordered too many dogs (again!!) and needs your help to look after them temporarily. Choose one of the 3 to help him out! Once you equip your dog, Nate has some daily quests for you to do to keep the ball of energy that is your puppy occupied. Love the look of the dog? Permanently adopt it with a simple purchase!



New for 2018!
Can now send Dog Treat Gifts to friends, which contains random energy, mana, power, and something special for the duration of the event. These items do not expire and function like the Wrapped Presents from Christmas.
