BW2: Happy Birthday Nate! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy Birthday Nate!

It’s that time of year again! Help celebrate Nate Dragon’s birthday by decorating the Commons for him....because no one else will.

First and foremost, whenever Nate is involved, safety becomes a priority. Find Safety Coins in the bushes and bring them to the stations in the Commons to stock up on protective gear. Turn in 10 coins at each station 50 times for an achievement. You can see the number of turn-ins you've completed at a station when you turn in a set of coins. The Kevlar Pad station is there on the first day of the event, and the Fire Extinguisher and Band Aid stations will unlock as the event goes on.

Then it seems Nate needs decorations and activities to set up in the Commons. Go out daily and find things for his party. Have fun trying out the activity stations as many times as you want!

If you're trying to get Tiny Little Arms or Just Like Nate achievements, or if you just want to have a little fun, you need to be wearing all pieces of the Dragon gear or the Nate outfit (available from the vendor's Bush Bucks store if it's your first time playing this event) while completing the 4 party Stations: Dynamite Activity, Campfire Activity, Digging Activity and the Training Whacking Activity.

If you've built the Town Hall, you can expect an fiery visitor to the party as well!

New for 2017:

We've made the Surprise Party set-up quests a little bit easier for you to navigate. Keep an eye out for the Robin with your new task daily. He also has an option to teleport to the zone where the party planners are meeting, and for the duration of the event, going to the Forest Detour won't override your current destination on your return button.

Plus, due to your overwhelming feedback, Nate's mom Elena and Natalie in the Event Zone will have daily quests for you to do as the event goes on. And be on the lookout for a new 4 part quest line later in the event!

And introducing the 100% reward for this year: lanterns! They can face either left or right for all your decorating needs! Check out the explosive Nate themed one below!

BW2 Very Expensive Item Store 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

Do you have a lot of excess in-game currency that you're looking to spend in a hurry? Is your ranch too full of multiple copies of gold bricks?

Good news! If you have access to the Flux, there's now a store there for you to spend your gains on! If you've expanded your Ranch to the maximum and bought all the trinkets that cost gold and gems from the General Store, then he will have an assortment of items for you to purchase.

Debuting with the release are some very cool items. For Gold, you can pick up a Statue Lock, so that Nate won't be able to change your Commons Statue to himself! As well, you can grab your own personal Glitch to place on your Ranch and choose which Flux you want to visit after a successful crop harvest.

Plus, you can assemble your very own Erika pet! Buy all 5 pieces for 200 Island Tokens each and get odds to increase the amount of Nothings you win! (Helpful for using the "Nothings turn into" Runes.)

Check out the rest of the items and drain those wallets! Plus more items will be added at a later date.

You can chat about it on the forums here!

Welcome to the Commons' Teleporter Hub! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Calling all Whackers!

Tired of opening and closing the world map to pick up quests at the Hermit's House, in Cloudland or Sanctuary, or turning in a Lock Pick quest in Port Blackwood, then popping back to the Flux?

Introducing a new and helpful way for you to get around Bushwhackia! The Commons' Teleporter Hub!

If you've built Brock's Masonry shop (to the west of the Town Hall) and are level 100 or higher, you can start building your Teleporter Network by talking to Eunice, the Port-Co representative in the Commons.

When you've completed the first teleporter station in the Commons, you will be able to seek out Eunice's friends around the world, in Quest Hubs and all the Fluxes, so that you can set up a chain of Teleporters to help out in your daily routines. Only one teleporter quest will be available to work on at a time, so it will take a few days to get it fully set up.



One of Eunice's fellow Port Co. employees, out in the wild world (well, just the Hermit's House.)


When you reach level 200, a second teleporter pad can be built in the Commons, and at level 300 you can build your 3rd pad. So depending on what quests you want to do that day, or how you want to get around, you can set a different destination for each of the Commons teleporter pads.

Plus, we've added 6 achievements relating to the Teleporters for you to achieve!

We welcome your comments and feedback on the forums.

Emo's New Moon 2016 

Halloween is here! It always makes Emo reflective on the time he was in ghoul school. Relive his memories as he tells you the tale of what makes him emo, and tackle the 2016 edition of Emo's New Moon event!

Revisit the halls of his old school and the neighbourhood he used to call home, as you help to defeat the ghouls and haunts of his past. Don't be frightened; you're likely to survive.

Tier 1 Information

If it's your first time playing through our spooktacular Halloween event, or if you are finishing up Tier 1 to unlock the Tier 2, you get to tackle these objectives in order to move on. The requirements needed to start them are listed in the brackets.
  • Moonrise With Emo (100 Candies): Recruit Wendy the Witch while she debuffs adjacent Crusaders for each monster on the screen. Wendy swaps with Prince Sal, and once she's on your team, she gets DPS from having monsters on screen.



    Wendy the Witch

  • Bring Forth the Pumpkin (700 Candies): Recruit Jack O'Lantern by clearing area 100 while Jack occupies a spot and increases the damage Crusaders ahead of him take. Once he's on your team, he swaps with Natalie Dragon and gets power from tanking enemies.



    Jack O'Lantern

  • Power of the Wyrd Sister (1300 Candies, 500 Idols): Survive the onslaught of ghouls by clearing area 150 with double the enemies, double the quest item requirements and enemies dropping less gold and quest items.

  • Pumpkin Spice Tanke (1900 Candies, 1000 Idols): Reach area 200 with caffeine-powered monsters who are eager to reach you and do some damage.

  • All New! Trick or Treat (2500 Candies, 1500 Idols): Get to area 250 while special Trick and Treat monsters randomly spawn, giving you an awesome treat or a nasty trick on their demise.



    Trick or Treat?


    Note: Since the Trick or Treat objective was just added this year, players who completed this event last year will need to do it prior to starting the Tier Two objectives, so be sure to save up 2,500 Candies before resetting to start the event!


Tier 2 Information

Once you've completed all of Tier 1 and have the Talent "Doing It Again" from the Talents shop, you are ready to get your fright on in the new objectives added for 2016!
  • The Scaredy-Ghoul (400 Candies): Recruit Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul to your roster by escorting him to area 300 while he occasionally gets spooked and reduces your DPS to 0.



    Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul


    Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul just wants to be left alone curled up in a corner with his blanket, but since you're nice enough to ask, he'll lend you his DPS power. When you swap out The Washed-Up Hermit for Henry, as long as no one is directly behind him, Henry's skill Spooked boosts his DPS by a whopping 250%.

  • Research and Development (700 Candies): Who doesn't need more robots to keep them company? Recruit the Fright-O-Tron 4000 by escorting her earlier prototypes to area 300.



    Fright-O-Tron 4000


    Swapping with the Fire Phoenix, the Fright-O-Tron 4000 can't help being scary: it's how she was made. But she'll be supportive of your Crusaders when you use her. Oogy-Boogy decreases the maximum health of the monsters, and Remote Detonation has an explosive surprise for those looking to do you harm.

  • G-g-g-ghost! (2500 Candies): Reach area 400 with killer ghosts approaching your formation. Oh, and the ghosts are invincible (real ghosts can't be touched after all.)



    G-g-g-ghost!!

  • Scared to Death (2500 Candies): It's your Crusaders turn to be scared by all the death they've caused. Reach area 450 with every monster death frightening a random Crusader. When a Crusader gets scared enough, they go catatonic!

  • Halloween Hoopla (2500 Candies): The Halloween Crusaders have decided to go out and party, to get to know each other better. They've invited Bush Whacker, Khouri, Merci and Nate along for the ride, so that they can be healed while tanking and take advantage of blowing up the world when they're done. Help this party of 8 reach area 500 on your final journey of the event.
Craving more candies? Don't forget that you can use Time Warps to acquire them!

Good luck on your journey filled with haunts and frights! The event will run until Wednesday November 2nd at Noon PDT!

October Objectives! 

We don't need roads where we're going! Mostly because to enjoy this week's update you just need a computer or mobile phone. Nike Mag shoes are optional.

This week we launch four new challenging objectives for the Idols Through Time campaign.




New Objective: Echoes

In the objective Echoes you'll encounter randomly spawned malevolent versions of your Crusaders that can't be killed for 30 seconds but will still deal damage to you. If they're at the forefront of the enemy's attack, they'll soak up all your DPS until they disappear. You're going to want to clear all 600 areas as soon as possible to beat them.

New Objective: Hamstrung

The objective Hamstrung will only allow you to use Crusaders that don't have a DPS tag all the way to area 600. Time to find a new main dps'er!

New Objective: The Lost World

The Lost World objective sees you transported back to the Jurassic period and attacked by a cornucopia of dinosaurs. These beasts include ones that are invisible, tanky, super-fast, and others that will do ranged damage to your formation.

The final new objective is Atrophy where all Crusaders will take 1% damage per second until you can clear the area. Then you start all over again until you can beat area 700.

Plus, this weekend we're buffing some October-loving Crusaders from today until Monday, October 17 at Noon PDT.

  • The Washed Up Hermit - Base DPS + 400%
  • The Princess - DPS All + 100%
  • Natalie Dragon - Gold Find + 100%
  • Nate Dragon - Double Dragon + 200%
  • Mister the Monkey - Follow the Leader + 200%

Also, check out the limited-time Octoberfun Jeweled Chests that contain equipment for the five Crusaders above! (Please note: The chest will only contain gear for Mister the Monkey if you've unlocked him.)

Good luck Crusaders, you'll need it!

Mount Augmentation! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

Today brings a long-awaited feature update to mounts and the ownership of them! We've added 5 new functions to Clint to help you manage your mounts, and at the center of all of them are Mount Bucks.

You can earn Mount Bucks by...

Releasing Mounts!
Too many horses from your biweekly questing for a mount and Large Energy Pack? Only want to collect one of each color? Well, now you can trade in all your unwanted mounts to Clint for some of the all-new Mount Bucks!
  • If you turn in a tamed mount, you'll get 10 Mount Bucks!
  • If you decide you no longer love one of your premium mounts and trade it in, you'll get 100 Mount Bucks!
  • The mounts received from content areas (such as secret bonus areas) or quests cannot be traded in though, but they do make nice decorations on your ranch!
Trading In Excess Feeds!
Have 100 of each of all the mount feeds you are not really interested in? Now you can trade them into Clint as well for Mount Bucks! Four small feed or one large feed will grant you a Mount Buck. You can also trade in Hay in groups of 4.

You can also spend Mount Bucks to...

Buy Mount Feed!
In addition to being able to buy premium feed for vouchers, you can also buy small and large feed for Mount Bucks. So if you're running low on Large Soybeans for example, you can pick some up with your Mount Buck collection!

Re-train Mounts!
Ever wish you could redo that last level-up of your Mount? Now you are able to buy a retry! With enough gold and Mount Bucks on hand, you can redo a level-up (or 2, or more) gone wrong, and get your mount's bonuses in perfect order!

Swap Mount Bonuses!
Are you loving your current mount set-up, but you really wish it was on your awesome Ostrich instead of your plain Black Horse? Or is today an Elephant day instead of a Momma Roo day?

Well, now for a handful of Mount Bucks, you can swap the bonus set up between mounts! It is an all-or-nothing deal though, no picking and choosing which bonuses get swapped. But it makes using the mount you adore that much easier!

We hope you enjoy this addition to the mount management system. You can post questions and feedback on the forums!

Nate's Ancient Vault Raid 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

Nate is definitely ready to get back to adventuring after spending all summer polishing his treasures and remembering how he collected it all. He's reluctantly broken out his winter gear and has found some information about some ruins and a to explore in the Spine of the World.

If you've completed Nate's Infected Plains adventure and have made it to field 4 in the Explorer's Camp zone, then talk to the Town Crier to get started. Nate is going to need your brain to succeed.

Talk about Nate's icy adventure on the forums! And don't forget your toque!

The Big Update: The 11th Objectives! 

We're pleased to announce our biggest update yet to Crusaders of the Lost Idols. Six new Crusaders are available to unlock from six brand new objectives in the existing campaigns.

Each of the six campaigns now feature a new eleventh objective that's going to require your very best strategies to beat.

Six New Crusaders!

You'll need to have completed all ten previous objectives (at Tier One) before you can tackle the new eleventh objectives for each campaign. For example, you can't start Descent into Darkness' eleventh objective until World's Wake's eleventh objective has been beaten.

The Shadow Queen



Greyskull the Pirate



Gloria, the Good Witch



Ilsa, the Insane Wizard


Eiralon, the Blood Mage



As soon as you've unlocked the new Crusaders, you can start collecting gear for them too when you open chests. If you haven't unlocked the new Crusaders already, don't worry, gear drops will only be for the Crusaders you have available on your roster.

We're not going to spoil the surprise by telling you about their traits and formation abilities. We'll leave you to find that out for yourself. To get started, open up the Objectives menu and select 'Gray Goo' in the World's Wake campaign after you've completed all the other objectives.

To celebrate the launch of the 11th Objectives, five Crusaders will also get an Autumn's Upon Us weekend buff!

From today until Monday, September 26 at Noon PDT, Jim, Jason, Dark Gryphon, Sal and Draco all get a limited time buff applied automatically.

  • Jim the Lumberjack - Sharpen Party Ability +200%
