BW2: Thankful Thanksgiving Event 2019 
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!

Event Achievements - POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!

Achievements Returning in 2019:
  • Special Order - You helped all of the people prepare their special dishes.
  • Master of the Ways - You have helped cook each dish excellently for the pristine table.

BW2: Halloween Event, 2019 Edition! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Halloween is Coming to Bushwhackia!

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 will be starting soon!

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 20, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Witches - AVAILABLE Sun Oct 20, Noon PDT UNTIL Tues Oct 22, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Zombies - AVAILABLE Tues Oct 22, Noon PDT UNTIL Thurs Oct 24, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Bats - AVAILABLE Thurs Oct 24, Noon PDT UNTIL Sat Oct 27, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Spiders - AVAILABLE Sat Oct 26, Noon PDT UNTIL Mon Oct 28, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Ghost Butler - AVAILABLE Mon Oct 28, Noon PDT UNTIL Wed Oct 30, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Franken-Dogs - AVAILABLE Wed Oct 30, 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 Thursday 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! So 1 in the Mysterious Forest, 1 in the Shady Detour, etc. NPCs have been added up to the Salt Desert!

New for 2019:
We've added five new quests for this year! Enjoy!

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.

October 4th
BW2: Fairly Mischievous Fairies Limited Time Event! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

The barrier between Faerie and Bushwhackia is thin this weekend, and it's allowing a variety of trickster fairies to run amok!

Head to the Old Man Tree in the Event Area in the Commons to get started! The fairies gathered there will ask you to send the fairies back home.

The fairies will come in three waves, each wave starting at noon each day this weekend. Don't forget to get the quest from the fairies in the event area! You'll be awarded Fairy Dust for completing each wave, which you can spend on opportune items the fairies keep in the Old Man Tree.

Outside of the main three waves, you'll occasionally find Forest Fairies wandering the fields. When you whack any fairy, there's a chance it will drop Fairy Dust. Forest Fairies will drop more Fairy Dust than the others.

If you're a veteran player in search of a challenge, don't worry! More items in the store will unlock after you've bought the initial set. You can amass as much Fairy Dust as you have the patience for, and spend it on the other items that become available.

You've got until noon on Monday October 7th to make the most of this opportunity.

Pro-Tip! Reducing your Nothing Odds will increase your chances of finding Fairy Dust when you whack a fairy.

Discuss on the forums!

Redeem this code before noon on Monday October 7th for 1 free Large Energy Pack: TROU-BLES-OMEF-AIRY

BW2: Generation 11 Pets are Here! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Gotta find 'em all! A new selection of critters are now available to be your companions!

Those weirdly random abandoned eggs scattered all over Bushwhackia have been switched up and all new pets are ready to hatch when you accept the "Find an Egg" quest from Misty. She will also have all the Generation 11 eggs available to purchase for Bush Bucks during the "Find an Egg" quest.


Other changes to Misty and Hank for Generation 10:
  • Misty will no longer let players abandon Gen 10 pet eggs that they are hatching (they're now too rare). Only current generation pet eggs can be abandoned during hatching. Please note that if you're in the middle of hatching a pet, then that egg will still hatch into whatever pet it would have been before.

  • Generation 10 pet eggs can now be found in Quester's Satchels (with the same limitations as the Generation 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 eggs, which will still be available in satchels as well.)

  • Hank now sells a random assortment of hatched level 1 Generation 11 pets (instead of Generation 10) for Bush Bucks in his pet store.

PAGAS changes for Generation 11:
  • Generation 11 pet eggs are available to buy with DNA in the PAGAS store, once you have hatched at least five Generation 11 pets.

  • The Pet Progress dialog now includes Generation 11 pets. Another 11 new pets that all players can unlock!


And now, without further ado, the information you've all been waiting for:

Generation 11 Pets:
  • Pig
  • Fruit Beetle
  • Gopher
  • Vulture
  • Dolphin
  • Echidna
  • Aardvark
  • Walrus
  • Thylacine
  • Cuttlefish
