As with most action-type games, there are two types of quests: the main storyline quests, which tell the actual tale of the game, and side quests, missions designed to offer humor and/or opportunities for players to do more than travel from point A to B. Bush Whacker 2 is no exception.
Note that, since October 31st, 2013, the quest rewards now scale with your level. The typical storyline quest gives you ten times your level in gold and 2% of the experience required to reach the next level from the beginning of your current level (that is, 2% of the amount to the right of the slash in the figures near the top left of the screen). If you've reached the maximum level, you get twenty times your level in gold instead.
Main Storyline QuestsEdit
Bush Whacker 2 is set on a series of islands. Each island possesses several zones and each zone has, on average, 6 or 7 quests you must complete before you can enter the next zone. The later areas have more like 4 quests each.
- Main Page: Starting Island Quests
The story begins on an island that you find yourself shipwrecked upon. There are 10 zones with storyline quests on the first island with terrain varying from forests, to majestic mountains, to desolate deserts.
- Main Page: Second Island Quests
After reaching the 10th zone, you find a boat to cross The Narrow Sea to reach a new, larger island with 17 main storyline quest-filled zones. Players will cross through a thick Evergreen filled forest, enter a trackless swamp, climb a snow-covered mountain pass and trek through a Haunted Forest.
- Main Page: Third Island Quests
Upon completing the Haunted Forest Supply Run, you will be able to take a boat to a set of tropical islands. There are a total of 4 zones in one sector all with an array of tropical themes.
- Main Page: Fourth Island Quests
Upon completing Upper Juau Island, you discover the Princess has escaped to the mainland! Chasing after her, you discover a previously unreachable section of the Second Island containing a desert kingdom, a ruin-filled jungle, an active volcano and some grassy highlands. Who knows what adventures await?!
There are a number of side quests that are made available for those that want to experience the rest of the Bush Whacker 2 world.
- Main Page: Secret Bonus Areas
Location: Hidden in Selected Zones | Prerequisite: Be able to find and access the hidden entrance
The Secret Bonus Areas are optional areas, the entrance of which are hidden in each of the main storyline areas and occasionally side quest areas. In each of them, you'll find a field and a puzzle, and you'll be rewarded with Gold as well as Trinkets, Gear or House Accessories. Great for the game grinder who wants to find everything!
- Main Page: The Flux
Location: At the end of the game's available content | Prerequisite: Reach the end of the game's available content
The Flux is an end-game bonus area where you can talk with the avatars of the game's design staff. There is a special 144 piece puzzle located here that can be completed multiple times and drops special high-quality Trinkets or flux dust (if you collect all the available trinkets), which can be used to buy special trinkets. You can also talk to the flux figure and find out which flux trinkets you are missing, if you have not won all 8 from a given set. You can also change flux puzzles, to go back and complete other ones. There is also the opportunity to "dust" full sets and use the dust to buy new items.
- Main Page: Events
Location: The Fairgrounds (Southwest Commons) | Prerequisite: Right place, right time
The Developers will regularly run season specific Events. These Events are timed and once they're done, it's over. Seasonal Events award special Gear, Decoration Items and Event Ribbons that, when hung in your House, create a bump to your Base Energy figure.
- Main Page: Nate's Adventures
Location: One area per game sector | Prerequisite: Talk to the Town Crier, be able to reach where Nate is, and complete any prior Nate Adventures.
Nate Dragon is a recurring NPC in BW1 and BW2. He is extremely adventurous, greedy for treasure, absentminded and almost dangerous (mostly to himself.) His personality traits lead him into precarious situations which will always end up requiring your assistance and usually you will have to rescue him. Nate's Adventures are optional and do not impact the main storyline. There is typically one Nate adventure per Sector with new adventures being released a few weeks after the next story update is released.
- Main Page: Detective Agency Cases
Location: One area per game sector | Prerequisite: Have completed the Detective Agency's construction, talk to the Town Crier, be able to reach where Detective Kaine is, and complete any prior Detective Agency Cases.
Detective Kaine is also a recurring NPC from BW 1. In the original game he resembled a sunglass-wearing Crime Scene Investigator from a mythical land known as "Florida", but he apparently felt yelling YEEEEAAAAAAH! was getting old and has changed his look to that of a super sleuth from a mythical island known as "England." No matter how he looks, however, the man's intuitive case solving skills have no known rival.
The Old HermitEdit
Location: The Hermit's House | Prerequisite: Having access to the Hermit's House
The Hermit's quests may only be done in the Lower and Upper Evergreen Forest and Secret Bonus Areas 11 and 12. With the advent of dynamic bush level in side quest areas, high level players can complete some of these quests with much less hassle by whacking in the Secret Bonus Areas.
