COTLI: Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 4 

The fourth installment and third sequel to Gardeners of the Galaxy is here — and you know what they say about sequels to sequels to sequels: it's time to change things up! Usually this is the point in the franchise where you take things to space, but since we're already here it's time to fight plants with fungus!

The latest addition to the Gardeners of the Galaxy is Mycall the Mushroom, and they are here to boost your formation with the power of fungus! Breathe in some of these spores and you'll have more than enough firepower to take down even the most colossal of evil plants! GARDENERS, ASSEMBLE!

Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 4 introduces Mycall the Mushroom and brings back Robbie Raccoon, Broot, Spaceking, Grandmora, and Rex the Wrestler! The party ends on Tuesday, June 11th, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Mycall the Mushroom

Fungi may be categorically gross on average, but this frenzied fungus is one you'll want propagating in your formation!

Mycall the Mushroom is a Support Crusader who uses spores that heal Crusaders with their Herbal Healing capabilities, and has a tendency to Grow in the Dark, buffing your formation. In fact, most of Mycall's abilities buff the formation one way or another - they excel at boosting their allies! Mycall has Fungal Frenzy and Mushroom Soup for improving Global DPS, Propagation for boosting adjacent Crusaders based on how many Formation Abilities are targeting Mycall, Germination to increase the DPS of all Crusaders based on the number of EP in the formation, and, well, you get the idea...

Spores = Good! We are Broot.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Robbie Raccoon, Broot, Spaceking, Grandmora, and Rex the Wrestler are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Mycall the Mushroom | Mycall the Mushroom takes up a slot in the formation. If he dies, you have to restart the Area. Reach area 600.

  • SuperGRO | All plant monsters are stronger and have a ranged attack. Reach area 700.

  • Sprinkled | A sprinkler goes back and forth over the formation. Crusaders in the affected columns lose their DPS. Reach area 750.

  • Capped Out | Only Crusaders with Legendary items have DPS and their formation abilities active. Reach area 800.

  • Down and Dirty | Mounds of dirt take over the formation slowly. Each mound of dirt increases the global DPS for each Flora Crusader in formation. Reach area 850.


Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Gardeners 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, Tier 3, and Tier 4 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, June 11th, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT to complete Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 4!

BW2: The 8th Spring Garden Event! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Flowers In Bloom!

The EIGHTH 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. On platforms without, you get a free one when the animal unlocks from the animal vendor! The tool-tip when you hover the critter in the store has their unlock date!

Also returning is the Gorgeous Garden contest! Check back next week for more details!

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.

Earn another copy of your old Bee pet, or one of the other two Bees when you complete the quests again this year!

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.
