BW2: Creature Collector - Vehicle 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 fine-tuned vehicle mounts!



Head to the event area and choose one to train. You have until noon on Wednesday March 1st to complete the collector's four daily tune-up quests, level up your chosen vehicle, 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 vehicle back unless you adopt it by purchasing its corresponding mount pack, available starting Monday February 27th.

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!

Notes
- 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!

Idle Champions: Fleetswake 6 
Posted in Idle Champions.

You've been recruited by a merchant guild in Waterdeep to look into a number of mysterious missing ships over the past year. The Fair Seas Festival is a good time to look into this as people are quite open about the dangers of the sea, the fury of Umberlee, and so forth.

Many people blame Umberlee for the missing ships, but the merchant guild isn't so sure...

Fleetswake 6 introduces Solaak, a kalashtar ranger played by Gabe Hicks on Idle Champions Presents: Fury of the Black Rose. Fleetswake also brings back Desmond, a werewolf ranger, as well as Orisha, an Aasimar Cleric and Bard. Players have until Monday, March 6th at 12 PM Pacific to complete their Fleetswake 6 unlocks and objectives.

I. Solaak



    Being telepathic means Solaak knows who to trust, and sadly that’s not many people. But when the Kalashtar found the soul of a dragon trapped in a chasm, he formed a bond of trust like no other. Solaak now rides his dragon mentor, Tempest, into battle, and together they are unstoppable!

Solaak is a Support Champion who excels at ranged attacks, as well as aiding others who attack from a distance. His shots are even more inspiring as he fires while riding his fierce dragon companion! Once unlocked, you can find this ranger in Slot 2 opposite Celeste.

For more information on Solaak and his abilities, check out his Champion Spotlight!

Year Six Variants


  • Adventure Variant 1: On the Wings of Dragons — Search for some missing ships during Fleetswake with Solaak! Solaak, Tempest, and Levits join the formation. Levits can be moved, but not removed.
    Complete Area 75.
  • Getting to know Solaak: Solaak's Pseudodragon pet Levits takes his place in the formation. Look for Solaak riding a drake in the back of the formation!

  • Adventure Variant 2: Slings and Arrows — Search for some missing ships during Fleetswake with your best ranged attackers. Solaak, Tempest, and Levits join the formation. Levits can be moved, but not removed. The base attack cooldowns of Champions with magic and melee base attacks are increased by 10 seconds.
    Complete Area 125.
  • Getting to know Solaak: Solaak's buffs focus on Champions with ranged attacks. Make the best ranged formation possible!

  • Adventure Variant 3: A Scaly Companion — Search for some missing ships during Fleetswake with a dragon escort! Solaak, Tempest, and Levits join the formation. Levits can be moved, but not removed. A Bronze Dragon joins the formation as an escort. It takes up three spots in the formation, but doesn't do much else.
    Complete Area 175.
  • Getting to know Solaak: One of Solaak's specializations can help offset the presence of escorts in the formation. Choose wisely!


For information on previous years' variants, check out the Fleetswake 5 blog. And 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: Share the Love! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy Valentine's Day Bushwhackers!

The residents of the Commons are putting on a Valentine's Day dance, so you know what that means! Helping with the set-up through one-time and daily quests, plus turn-ins!

Sentimental Stations

It's not Valentine's without presents! Help stock the stands with Chocolates, Teddy Bears and Roses by turning in Candy Hearts as the stations unlock.

Organizer Assistance

The event organizer seems a bit frazzled. Why don't you help her out by doing her set-up quests each day? And don't forget to keep those party supplies topped off!

The Dance Floor

Once the Valentine's dance has started, you get to look for the partner of your choice to share a moment on the dance floor.

Jim and Sasha

Jim and Sasha's relationship quests are around. If you haven't married them yet, you'll see either their Dating or Proposal quest line. If they are married, you get to help the pair pack for their honeymoon, or celebrate their anniversary.

Secret Admirer

And who is that mysterious note from this year?

Making Like Rabbits

Aaron's bunnies, Cinnamon and Snowball, have run off and are making like, well rabbits! This is a challenging quest that might take you the better part of the event to complete, as you've got to catch not only Cinnamon and Snowball, but their 100 little bunny babies as well! Good luck!

His True Love

Nate's needs your help setting up a date with his one true love: Adventure! When he returns from his "date", he'll bring you back a Trophy for his sister Natalie. Later on, one of the girls will need some support after her Kindler Date dumps her. Ice Cream daily quests ought to help, until it's time to help them through the 5 stages of grief. All five quests will unlock right after each other and then she will have a new daily quest for you.

Changing Sanctuary Partners!

During this event only, you can break up with your current partner in Sanctuary Village. Sounds harsh, I know. This is how you do it: Talk to your partner, Burl or Faun, and choose the "I think we should break up" chat option. After which you'll be able to date the other person, or even them again. Note you can only do this during the Valentine's event, and cannot do it during the Gift of Love quest.

New for 2023

This year's update includes:

- a quest from Jimmie!
- 6 tiers of VIP rewards!
- new costume items in the store!
- new ranch items in the store!

Holiday Rubber Duckies

If you can complete the event, you'll earn this awesome 100% reward: The Valentines Rubber Ducky! Collect them all to fill out the holiday duck pond, released later this year!

Battle of the Bandmates!

A band's worth of instruments but no place to put them? We have good news for you! Remember Jimmie the guitar virtuoso? If you completed his lessons last year, he'll help you build a Bandstand for your ranch this year!
