BW2: Endangered Species Mini Event VII! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Endangered Species - Seventh Encounter

Habitats are changing, and it's endangering many different animal species. Carson Tiva has found that three different endangered species can currently be found in Bushwhackia, as they search for new places to live.

Three Endangered Species

Addax - A critically endangered desert living ungulate

Aye Aye - An engangered long-fingered lemur once thought extinct

Bulmer's Fruit Bat - A critically endangered megabat that dwells in highland forest caves

Collect Conservation Data

Like you did during Carson's last visit, apply your bush whacking skills to help them collect Conservation Data on these unique animals for the limited time they're here. To gather data, you just have to give them a whack with your sword or other whacking implement. With said data, Carson Tiva can use it to try and help what's left of these unique animals.

Which species you encounter in the fields will be random, so if you fall behind in finding one of the three animals, you can start one of Carson Tiva's pursuit quests. You can do one pursuit quest every 20 hours.

Earn Rewards

Your efforts will not go unrewarded! Carson Tiva will trade you for this data in their store, plus you'll earn a unique plaque for your contributions! Like event ribbons, this plaque will increase your maximum energy based on your performance.

Collect data, complete the achievements, and earn rewards!

In addition to a new set of species, Bush Buck Bundle, and energy boosting plaque, you can earn a new Ladybug Terrarium ranch item reward!

Limited Time Only

Go to the event area of the Commons to get started, and gather as much data as you can before noon on Tuesday May 28th, Pacific Time!

BW2: Spring Garden Event 2024! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Flowers In Bloom!

The annual Grow-A-Thon has returned to the Commons! Whack the bushes and gather their bounty so that you can plant flowers and trees in the Event area to make yourself a gorgeous garden. Impress the judges every 20 hours to earn Spring tokens to buy this year's Custom Items. You need to impress the previous judge to get a rating from the next one.

Plus, fill your magnificent garden with critters! There are 5 to get throughout the event, starting with the Squirrel today! You can send out requests for a free one.

Many Quests!

George has such a terrible green thumb, he'll be looking for you to help him out trying to grow a plant for the first (or fourth) time.

Spring usually means spring cleaning, right? Freddy needs some help cleaning up his house. It's gotten a little bit spooky. Cleaning items can only be whacked in his house.

Timmy wants to wake his turtle up from its hibernation after that long, cold winter. Aid him in finding things to tempt it back to consciousness.

Help Farmer McDonald splice together some special Spring Seeds! For players level 400+, Farmer McDonald will reward you with Tier 2 Spring Fruit and Spring Vegetable seeds! These crops will yield energy and gold balanced for your higher level.

- Leafcutter Bee
- Red-tailed Bumblebee
- Tawny Mining Bee
- Blue Banded Bee
- Neon Cuckoo Bee
- Green Carpenter Bee

Have too many seeds? There are things you can spend them on:

Frequently Asked Questions

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

  • How do I grow plants?
    There are the planters outside the garden to grow flowers in. If you click on them, you can see the plant store. Each plant has a different cost and grow time to get you your event progress points. You start with 4 free planters.

  • Is it good to buy extra planters for growing the plants?
    If you have the seeds to spare and prefer to plant long-growing plants, then yes, it's worth it.

  • How do I get the Decorator achievement?
    If you go into the gardening area, the store button ($) has a selection of garden decorating items, where you can find the planter styles and watering can. These items also cost seeds.

  • What are the possible seed combinations for Farmer MacDonald's quest?
    You can choose seeds that grow either Energy or Gold, and then choose between 20, 15, 4, and 3 hours of growth time.

  • Why do my custom seeds cost Gold to plant?
    You created the combination, which is unlocked until they expire. Just like normal plants, they cost Gold for planting. We don't award a flat number of seeds, because not all players have the same amount of farm plots. This way, you get to choose how many you end up growing. :)
  • Why don't my custom seeds last longer?
    Because they're OP! Enjoy them while they last. :)

  • How do I please the judges?
    Just keep growing plants. As your event progress increases, you will impress the judges more and more. You DO NOT need to place them in your garden if you don't wish to. The plants still count for progress.

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

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Growing plants worth points and completing the side quests. To get the points from your plants, you don't even need to place them in your garden! Just grow them!

  • 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.

Idle Champions: The Great Modron March 7 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Something isn't right in the Outlands! The Great Modron March is only supposed to happen every 289 years - but the modrons are marching out of Mechanus right now!

Worst of all, they've found a way onto the Material Plane. Modrons have already been spotted in the forest! They're heading for Waterdeep!

The Great Modron March 7 has arrived! It introduces Diana, the Human Monk from the Dungeons & Dragons Cartoon. This speed/support Champion is ready to leap into your formations and power up the Saturday Morning Squad! It also reintroduces Gromma, the Grandmotherly Tortle Druid, from the minds at Codename Entertainment. You can learn more about Diana and the rework to Gromma below. Also, you can choose three of eight previous Champions to unlock over the course of The Great Modron March 7!

Table of Contents


Dungeons & Dragons Diana the Acrobat

    Diana was already a formidable gymnast when she and her friends were transported to the magical world of Dungeons & Dragons. Diana wields her Javelin Staff with determination and courage, harnessing its potent magic to triumph over countless obstacles. The confidence of this outspoken athlete propels her friends forward in their quest to return home.

Diana is a Support and Speed Champion who comes from the Dungeons & Dragons Cartoon from the 1980s. Diana’s flexible support ability provides the choice to buff Dexterous champions, young Champions, or Champions with low ability score totals. She also speeds up your progress by increasing the transition speed between areas. Once unlocked, she's a quick swap with Makos in seat 9!

Learn more about Diana in our Champion Spotlight!


Dungeons & Dragons Gromma Nander

    Extremely elderly for a Tortle, Gromma Nander grew discontent with her secluded life after giving birth to her offspring. Once they were old enough to fend for themselves, she ventured back out into the world to learn as much as she could about the strange creatures that inhabit it. Gromma is a wise and inquisitive Tortle who is quick to friendship but slow to trust. She carries a pouch of smooth colored stones that she has collected on her journey and walks with the aid of a battle-worn spear.

Gromma is a DPS, Support and Tanking tortle who has learned how to be flexible enough to take on almost any role in the formation. She has a soft spot for "the youngins" and does her best to assist anyone younger. She's found a comfy spot in Seat 3 opposite Nayeli.

Learn more about the changes coming to Gromma in our Reintroduction Spotlight!

Flex Champions

Flex Slots allow players to unlock additional Champions and earn chests during events, choosing from a pool of retired Champions associated with the event. This pool of retired Champions includes the Champions from previous years of the event as well as some Champions whose events have been retired. This event's Flex Slot pool includes:

  • Nixie (Seat 1)
  • Krydle (Seat 2)
  • Mehen (Seat 3)
  • Evandra (Seat 5)

  • Qillek (Seat 5)
  • Evelyn (Seat 6)
  • Jaheira (Seat 9)
  • Nordom (Seat 9)

Events 2.0

Event Changes

Events 2.0 is a significant update to the events system in Idle Champions. Because players will now be able to unlock more Champions, content, and rewards through Events 2.0, we are increasing the duration of events from 12 days to 21 days. Events will typically begin on the first Wednesday of each month and run for three weeks. Content updates for Idle Champions will occur on the Wednesdays outside events.

Along with the Event duration change we are reducing the number of annual events, shifting from 17 annual events down to 12. Long term, we plan to retire the Midwinter, Greengrass, The Running, Midsummer, and Brightswords events. However, as we transition over to the new Event 2.0 schedule, there will be a Greengrass event in April 2024.

Quality of Life Updates

As part of the Events 2.0 update, we are also making several quality of life updates:
  • Bounty Contracts used outside of events will award Event Tokens for the next event.
  • Event adventures, variants, and free plays no longer cost Event Tokens to start.
  • Event Tokens are now only used to purchase Event Chests directly (free plays no longer need to be grinded to obtain extra chests).
  • Event Tokens left over once an event ends will automatically be converted to Champion chests.
  • Retired Champions may come out of retirement.
  • Event Boons are granted to players who purchase specially marked event-related DLC during an event. There are four tiers of Event Boons that offer buffs to Champion Damage, Gold Find, Champion Health, Click Damage, and Speed. These buffs increase with each tier of Event Boon. Additionally, the first purchase that grants an Event Boon will also unlock the Supporter Slot.
