BW2: 2018 St. Patrick's Celebration!

[Post New]by erika_kramer1 on Mar 9, 18 1:56 PM
Happy St. Patrick’s Day Bushwhackers!
The Commons is greener than usual! That’s because the Commons Party Planning Committee is putting on a St. Patrick’s day party!

Unfortunately, the guests of honour seem to have gotten lost in the bushes. Go whack them up and help them find their way to the Event Area!

There are eight Leprechauns to whack up that will help you put on a rocking St. Patrick’s Day party! Every day the event goes on, the odds to whack them up gets larger, so you can get them all before it ends. Three of them will have turn-in stations for you to do and the others will have repeatable quests for you to do for event progress.

Unlocking throughout the event are previous year quest lines:

Mr. Keith is looking to put out his special brew again. Help him find the ingredients.

Seamus is in the mood to do some whacking of his own, but first he needs your help to make the perfect shillelagh.

Siobhan is throwing her version of an Irish Feast...but the dishes got lost in the bushes. Go find them for her!

Those poor snakes are tired of being whacked so often. Help their leader out by setting up his snake relocation program efforts.

Help Bree learn about Irish mythology!

New for 2018:

There's a new colour of Leprechaun showing up on the Rainbow's End Island....help them out when they do!

This event runs until Friday March 23rd @ Noon PDT.

FAQ

What are the different leprechauns?
You can whack up two types of leprechauns: hatted and non-hatted.

- There are 8 hatted ones to find, 3 will unlock turn-in stations, and the other 5 will give you daily quests. You must manually whack these ones to capture them.

- The non-hatted ones will drop items for you to turn into the turn-in stations. You can quick whack and mana whack non-hatted leprechauns when they appear if you wish. The non-hatted leprechauns will *always* drop some turn-in items, rather than just having a chance to.



How can I find the leprechauns?
Just keep whacking. You could whack them all up in a day if you wanted to. The odds to whack up hatted leprechauns will increase as the event goes on.

What adds to my event progress?
Turning in items to the Gold, Beer and Clover stations, and doing quests for folks in the event area.

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.

I'm sorry to hear that.

Sales like the mount as a bonus for a bush bucks purchase only run for the weekend, from the Friday when we launch the sale, to Noon Pacific on the Monday.

You need to accept the quest to capture Cara the Leprechaun, and then they'll open a rainbow door in the Commons that leads to Rainbow's End.

Is there somewhere specific we need to go to find O'Dwyer's Treasure Crock, or is it just something that will show up with enough bushwhacking anywhere?

Did you go around and look for anything? I don't want to do a spoiler. Just take a little time and you will find something else

I'm not sure, I keep checking in there to see if anything new is there. I don't know if the boxes with "?" on them are for the pots or something else.

That was one of my reasons for asking. The boxes might be red herrings. Thanks for responding, Army Mom. Please tell your daughter(s) and/or son(s) I said THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY!!! I served 26 years - Air Force.

Chuck, thank you very much! They are my twin sons. Army (combat vets) both served in Iraq and Afghanistan, they were in Afghanistan at the same time.
Thank you for your service!
