Idle Champions: Highharvestide 6 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The Savage Frontier of the Sword Coast can be a dangerous place. At the junction of the Long Road and Evermoor Way, the town of Triboar seeks the aid of heroes. Bandits have begun to assail the small town while the citizens are meant to prepare for the Highharvestide Festival...

Highharvestide 6 sees the beginning of Year 6 Events in Idle Champions and the introduction of Egbert from the Oxventurers!

This event also brings back D'hani, the aarakocra monk from Rivals of Waterdeep, and the intimating Minotaur Barbarian Torogar Steelfist. Players have until Monday, October 10th at 12PM Pacific to complete your Highharvestide 6 unlocks and objectives.

I. Egbert

Dungeons & Dragons Egbert Key Art
    Clumsy but well-meaning, Egbert the Dragonborn Paladin was summarily booted out of his Paladin order after a terrible incident he doesn’t like to talk about. Setting out on his quest for atonement with a new deity in tow, La Vache Mauve, he falls in with the Oxventurers Guild and, by his reckoning, questing with them offers as good a chance as any of guiding him towards absolution. Often impulsive, he very rarely plans beyond his initial moment of ‘inspiration’ but his heart’s in the right place. Well, at least until he next rushes into battle, trips into a spike pit and it ends up kebabbed on a skewer…

Egbert is a Tanking, Support, Healing, and Gold Find Champion who seeks atonement after being kicked out of his Paladin order. Does he make amends for his past transgressions, or will his companions lead him astray? He can be added to the formation by swapping him out with Minsc (Slot 7).

For more information on Egbert and his abilities, check out his Champion Spotlight Blog or the quick Video Spotlight!

Year Six Variants

  • Variant 1: Delay Tactics - Egbert starts in the formation and can't be moved or removed. Enemies can take at most 10% of their max health per hit in damage for the first 10 seconds after they appear. Speed potions last twice as long.
    Reach Area 75

  • Variant 2: Kicked out of Le Dragon d'Or - Egbert starts in the formation, can't be moved or removed, and his Atone for the Past ability starts out unlocked. If Egbert has positive Atonement points, only Lawful Champions can deal damage. Otherwise, only Chaotic Champions can deal damage.
    Reach Area 125.

  • Variant 3: Egbert the Careless - Egbert starts in the formation and can't be moved or removed. Every 10 seconds, Egbert accidentally drops a lit bomb which bounces back and explodes, dealing a random amount of damage up to the area's number to a random Champion and anyone standing next to them.
    Reach Area 175.

  • If you have feedback, let us know in a Community Q&A or Champion feedback post on the Idle Champions Subreddit, on the Steam forums, or on the Official Idle Champions Discord!

    BW2: Creature Collector - Triceratops mounts! 
    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 triceratops mounts!

    Head to the event area and choose one to train. You have until noon on Wednesday September 28th 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 mount pack, available starting Monday September 26th.

    Train hard, Bush Whackers!

    The training quests unlock at noon on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Those busy on the weekends can still catch up!

    - 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.
    - Swapping your event mount with a higher level mount doesn't count towards event progress.
    - These three mounts earn double the experience compared to other mounts for the duration of this mini-event!
    - Expiring mounts cannot have their bonuses swapped.

    Ye Olde Creature Collector's Galleria - Mounts

    When you speak to Tanela Tiva in the event area, you can select the "What past mounts are for sale?" chat option.

    This will open a new store, which will contain 3 non-event premium mounts 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 mounts they've missed out on, to help you fill out your pet collection. Snag those old-school mounts you're missing out on!

    BW2: Jr. Whacker Event 2022 Edition 
    Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

    Teach Me How to Whack!

    It's time to put your knowledge of whacking bushes to good use as you help educate the next generation! Take a trip to the Event Area of the Commons and get helping!

    The Junior Whackers

    Help three aspiring young ones learn how to whack bushes, mana whack, and power whack! Bring the Jr. Whackers some Cardboard Swords to use, found in bushes throughout the world, and they'll share the spoils of their training with you. As you help them, they gain experience, "leveling up" and will award more items with each turn-in. Each of the determined young padawans will have a daily quest to power up the spoils from their next turn-in.


    Another Jr. Whacker is pursuing their Capitalism badge. After you help them achieve that, perhaps they'll try their hand at Socialism?

    What's more fun than to earn than your Baking badge? Nothing of course! Help one Jr. Whacker get theirs later on in the event.

    Help Keisha get her camping badge again this year! Check back daily for her quest unlocks.

    Another aspiring whacker seeks their environmental conservation badge! Help them plant saplings and unlock their unique Ye Environmental Conservator's Equipage store!

    Target Practice

    A young student of the bush whacking arts challenges you to whack more than 100 cardboard bushes before the end of the event! This is a challenging quest, and we hope you enjoy it. Note: Quest Odds will not increase the likelihood of these cardboard bushes to appear.


    One Jr. Whacker appears to have suffered a head injury, since they are idolizing Nate. Talk to them and see what's going on.

    New for 2022

    If you can complete the event with 100%, you'll earn the Jr. BW Flower Box!

    Nate's Minions

    If you've kept up with Nate's saga in this event, there's an update this year! Nate's minions aren't happy with their working conditions...
