Quality of Life and Fixes Update! (May 18th, 2018)

- Quest Hubs now have their own Area Progress dialogs, and their completion is tracked on the world map.

- Added tooltips to completed quests/items/achievements on the Area Progress dialog that shows their name.

- Added the “Sonic Excavating Yard Stick” trinket to the Glaucous Quarries artifact store, which when equipped draws circles around your last 3 digs in a quarry, indicating the max possible range the treasure might be from that spot. Makes digging much easier!

- Fixed an issue with leaving the new quarry area when you have a particle emitting (flowers, etc.) custom item equipped. (Which means you’d see a “Loading Graphics... “ popup that never went away when trying to leave the quarry until you reloaded the game.)

- Added a diggergy bar toggle button, visible when you’ve got a Geo-Pick trinket equipped, that lets you show/hide the diggergy bar when you’re not in a quarry or picking up diggergy.

- Moved a normal banana by the Old Bazaar field in Cera Altepetl Proper so that it’s away from the whacking buttons.

- Fixed store item costs getting covered up if the amount was greater than 4 or 5 digits long (depending on the icon).

- Store item cost tooltips now show amount as well as name.

- Added 4 more trivia questions to the Amicus Isle Trivia Time quest (April 13th):
- “What activity can you do on Amicus Isle during the Patriot Event?”
- "On what major continent is the Snowy Mountain region?"
- "What organization did the Black Hole pet raise money for?"
- "What is the name of the Commons’ resident trinketeer?"

- Added music to the tropical island zones.

- Added the “Shiny” effect to Hellvin NPC since his player counterpart has acquired the Flux Tier 10 Super Trinket. Thanks for all the reports, Hellvin!

- Fixed various reported typos and quest descriptions. Keep the reports coming!

BW2: 7th Spring Garden Event, 2018 Edition! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

All the Pretty Flowers in a Row!

The SEVENTH 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! On platforms with friends, 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 third) 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!

New for 2018:

The all-new challenging quest starts today, to give you the most time to finish it. Do you smell onions?

Post your green thumb adventures and questions on the forum!

The event will run until Friday May 25th at Noon PDT!

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.

BW2: High Jungle Quest Hub 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

There's more history wound up in the High Jungle than you might first think, and it's begun to unravel! If you've completed the Cera Altepetl Boundary in the High Jungle, then the Town Crier's got a message for you!

This update includes over 30 new story quests, dailies, and an all-new awesome mini game! Grab your jungle gear and start the adventure!

The Town Crier will let you know when enough time has passed to pick up the continuing story quests. As you finish the story parts, you'll unlock new daily quests to do!

Choose carefully though, because once you've started these daily quests, you won't be able to do any Explorer's Camp, Sanctuary, or Cloudland daily quests for the next 20 hours.

Completing the Daily Quests will award you Cacao Coins, which can be used to buy a plethora of exciting custom items and treats from the Cera Altepetl Pahcalli store once it's been unlocked.

Chat about it on the forum!

Have fun!

Bush Whacker 2 is 6 Years Old! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy 6th Anniversary Bushwhackia!

Your friends in the Commons event area are up to something--and they need your help!

Be warned, this post contains SPOILERS for the event! You may want to play the first couple days of the event before reading these details!

The developers of Bush Whacker 2 are running the turn-in stations. Over the course of the event, you can find Typo Reports, Bug Reports and Suggestions in the bushes to turn in for event progress. Can you flood the poor developers with enough to earn the 100% Mosaic Piece?

Four daily quests will help you gain progress as well, starting with the quest for Gnome parts. The developer gnome quest has been updated with 8 more gnomes. Each completion will award you a random developer gnome and there are now 16 of us to collect. Note, if this is your first time doing the event, you'll get 2 gnomes per turn in.

Later on, there will be a daily quest to test your Bush Whacker knowledge with trivia questions, plus the return of Linus (from Halloween) who will have a sweet reward and of course, 6 years of whacking bushes has taken its tole, so it's best if you help to replant.

Do you have a favourite outfit from among the all the Custom Items over the years? Well, you can now show them off! Once you build the Costume Contest area, you can enter your favourite outfit and vote. New winners will be chosen daily, and will get a small treat.

Familiar friends, like Nate and Kaine, will also have quests as the event goes one.

New for 2018: We've added 2 new quests that will show up during the event, and in one you'll be helping out artist Georgia!

And what is an anniversary without cake? Not a very good one! A souvenir cake will appear on Wednesday April 18 at Noon PDT and be available to interact with until Monday April 23rd at Noon PDT.

There are a total of ELEVEN possible achievements to earn in the Anniversary event.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which developer gnomes are available?

  • Will this event repeat next year?

  • How does the Costume contest work?
    You can enter the contest once per day. Once you've entered you cannot change your entry, so choose wisely.

Winners get a unique title and an energy pack, but cannot enter the contest again for 3 days.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Doing turn-ins at the 3 stations and completing quests for the NPCs in the area.

  • How can I find the turn-in station items?
    Just keep whacking bushes and critters. The Holiday Item Runes and Pets will help attract them as well or you can use a VIP Voucher or Token on the Event Drops boon.

    No, you don't have to. They just allow you to gain event progress faster.

  • When will the last quest unlock?
    The last event quest will unlock on April 24th.
