Idle Champions: Dragon Heist, Part 3 
Posted in Idle Champions.

After thwarting a pair of plots to kidnap and kill lords of Waterdeep, the Champions are presented with a new challenge: homeownership!

The scholar Volothamp Geddarm has gifted the party with the title to Trollskull Manor, an aging estate located in Trollskull Alley in the North Ward of Waterdeep.

What Volo neglected to mention, however, is that the manor itself is already occupied...

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Dragon Heist Adventures, A Dinner Party and A Botched Kidnapping, in order to access these new Adventures.

Trollskull Manor

The Champions have been given the title to a house in Trollskull Alley, the aptly-named Trollskull Manor. However, it looks like some unwanted guests have taken up residence inside — time to kick them out!
  • Variant: The Gargoyle's Apprentice — All the activity within Trollskull Manor has activated a long forgotten spell cast by one of Ulkoria's students, awakening her cleaning objects to help prep the manor for residents again!

Attack on the Manor

After the Champions finish cleaning up their new base of operations, an explosion in Trollskull Alley brings chaos right to their doorstep.
  • Variant: The Trepidatious Trio — Nat, Squiddly, and Jenks tag along to help the Champions. They take up three slots in the formation and do no damage.

COTLI: Emo's New Moon 4 

    It's close to midnight, and something Emo's lurking in the dark...
    Under full moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart!
Wait — this thriller-night has happened three times before! And it's back again tonight! Emo's New Moon has returned, bring ghosts and ghouls to the neighborhood schools where Crusaders fight for their lives from now until November 6th at noon Pacific!

Emo's New Moon 4 introduces Trixie the Treater, the latest Tier 4 Crusader, and brings back Viktor the Vampire, Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul, Fright-o-Tron 4000, Wendy the Witch, and Jack O'Lantern!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Trixie the Treater

Trixie the Treater is a Support/Gold Find Crusader who buffs the formation the more varied and different every Crusader in it is. When you unlock her, she swaps with The Exterminator and Gloria the Good Witch. Trixie also takes her trick-or-treating very seriously, which is great news for her fellow Crusaders because she brings home the Gold!

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. Viktor the Vampire, Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul, Fright-o-Tron 4000, Wendy the Witch, and Jack O'Lantern are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Trixie the Treater | Trixie the Treater takes up a slot in your formation. She steals some of the quest items that drop. Crusaders in other columns deal no DPS. Reach area 600.

  • Carved Out | Three central formation slots are unavailable. Pumpkin seeds fall on random Crusaders, damaging them. Reach area 700.

  • Masquerade | For the purpose of Formation Abilities, Crusaders have no tags. Reach area 750.

  • Darkness Rising | Only undead, demon, and magic Crusaders may be used. Reach area 800.

  • Wait Up | DPS done to monsters is equal to the lowest DPS in your formation. This does not include click damage. Reach area 1000.

Introducing an All-New Event Mechanic!

That's right! We've added a new mechanic to events, to help you with Idol collection. For all the areas on an event objective or event free play that players complete, you can contribute to an additional bonus Idol buff that gives you more Idols on the event! The more areas completed by all players, the larger the buff!

We hope you'll enjoy it! And don't forget to check the in-game change log for what else is included in this update!

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Halloween 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, November 6th at 12:00pm Pacific to complete Emo's New Moon 4!

Idle Champions: Liars' Night 2 
Posted in Idle Champions.

    "It was quite the party: fun, festive, and perhaps a tad too much ale. But then some masked jerk managed to sneak in and take off with a bunch of our magical items! Can you help us?"
It's all fun and games until someone loses their magic items — now it's time to get the Party back together for another Liars' Night!

Liars' Night 2 runs until Monday, November 5th at 12:00pm Pacific, introduces Donaar Blit'zen, the Dragonborn Paladin, and also brings back the new-and-improved Krond, the Half-orc Eldritch Knight!

New Champion: Donaar Blit'zen

This copper, draconic gentleman claims to know more than one hundred different dragons. Chromatic, metallic—just tons and tons of dragons—I’m hoping we can leverage some of these connections in our dealings. None of the dragons I’ve contacted have gotten back to me, but they’re probably just very busy right now. This is one of the busiest times for dragons… or so I’ve been told by my new best friend, Donaar Blit’zen.

Donaar is a Support/Healer Champion. He uses his Command ability to debuff enemies, while also healing damaged Champions and buffing those behind him. When you want to add Donaar to your party, you can swap him with Celeste or Regis (Slot 2).

For more information about our latest Champion, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight - Donaar dev blog!

Returning Champion: Krond

Born to an academic human wizard who was researching an orc tribe and the leader of said tribe, Krond has experience in both worlds. Raised as a fearsome warrior, he began focusing on the arcane arts after his mother was killed in a goblin raid. Krond wears intricate leather and cloth armor and carries a bonded warhammer.

Krond is a versatile DPS Champion, able to choose one of three DPS specializations. Krond's formation ability, Survival of the Fittest, increases his DPS for every strong (STR 16+) or evil-aligned Champion in the formation. When you want to add Krond to your party, you can swap him with Asharra or Evelyn (Slot 6).

For more information about Krond, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight - Krond dev blog!

Year Two Variants

  • The Chaotic Decisionist — Donaar has decided that he's going to lead the way on his first adventure. Donaar starts this adventured unlocked and in the front of the formation, and he has decided that he can't move from that location. Only Champions with a chaotic alignment can be used.

  • Nightmare Fuel — A flaming scarecrow spawns in every Area. After each encounter with the Masked Man, an additional scarecrow will spawn every Area, stacking cumulatively.

  • Pirate's Night — Bruenor tried to bring the fun for Liars' Night by dressing up as a pirate. Unfortunately, a drunken sailor has mistaken him for another pirate who owes her some money. She spawns in every Area with one of four different special abilities. Bruenor is locked into his Pirate Bruenor skin for this variant, which unlocks for you once you complete the adventure.

Year One Variants

  • Stealthy Pickpockets — Invisible pickpockets spawn and sneak towards the formation, becoming visible after five seconds. When they reach your formation, they steal 2% of your total gold each time they attack.

  • Costumed Foes — A variety of costumed humanoids enemies attack the formation, each with different special abilities.

  • It's Getting Darker — The night gets even darker, with each successive area getting darker and reducing your gold find while monsters gain additional health.

See the in-game FAQ for more information!

Idle Champion Spotlight - Donaar 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Today, we're going to go into detail on our newest Champion: Donaar Blit'zen, the Dragonborn Paladin.

Donaar will be available in our next Year Two Event, Liars' Night, which launches TOMORROW (October 24th)! I hope this blog will give you all you need to know about our latest champion. But don't forget that Liars' Night is also a chance to collect and gear up Krond, the Half-Orc Fighter who recently got a big balance upgrade. You can read more about Krond and his new abilities in last week's Champion Spotlight.

How you can unlock Donaar:

Donaar is unlocked by playing Liars' Night, a limited-time event launching on October 24th and running until November 5th. Once you unlock Donaar, he swaps with Celeste or Regis (Slot 2).

Donaar will be sharing Liars' Night with last year's Champion, Krond, the Half-Orc Eldritch Knight. Don't worry - you will be able to unlock both of them if you haven't already unlocked Krond!

Who is Donaar:

Donaar is a member of the Acquisitions Incorporated's "C" Team. He is played by Ryan Hartman and will be featured on the main stage at this weekend's Acquisions Incorporated Main Stage game at PAX Australia!

This copper, draconic gentleman claims to know more than one hundred different dragons. Chromatic, metallic—just tons and tons of dragons—I’m hoping we can leverage some of these connections in our dealings. None of the dragons I’ve contacted have gotten back to me, but they’re probably just very busy right now. This is one of the busiest times for dragons… or so I’ve been told by my new best friend, Donaar Blit’zen.


Donaar's Design:

As fans of The C-Team, we were super excited to start working with their crew. Their attention to detail and love of their characters was clear quite quickly. Ryan came to the table with a TON of background info on Donaar and really helped bring the braggadocious Dragonborn to life. It is our hope that we did him justice, and that you become as enamored with Donaar and the rest of his crew as we are!

It's easy to see Donaar and think: Tank, right? He's a gigantic armored Dragonborn! However, the more we learned about him, the more we knew that to love Donaar is to understand that he might not serve your party in the best possible way. He's going to do things his way, cause he's the decisionist! Because of Ryan's love of using command to hilarious effect, we decided to double down on Donaar just doing whatever he thinks is best for the party.

Base Attack - Command: Donaar may have an enormous sword at his disposal, but his go-to attack is using command to compel enemies to do whatever he wants. He targets a random enemy and deals a small amount of damage while commanding them to do one of 4 possible things:
  • Hold: The target is stunned for 3 seconds.
  • Flee: The target is pushed back and damage dealt to it is increase by 100% for 10 seconds.
  • Fear: The target now has a 50% chance to miss on any attack for the next 5 seconds.
  • Drop Your Stuff: The target drops 50% more gold when it dies.

Formation Ability: Aura of Vitality: Every second, Donaar heals the champion who has lost the most health (percentage-wise). They will regain health over the next 10 seconds. He's there when you need him!

Formation Ability: Lead By Example: Donaar increases the damage of Champions in his column and those in the columns behind him by 100%.

Donaar's Specializations:

With Donaar's specializations, we wanted to give you the choice on how Donaar doubles down on his commands. He'll either use "Ohhh Yeaaaaah!" to increase the effect or duration of the commands or use "Everybody Cooool Out!" to allow his commands to affect a small area around the target each time.

Donaar's Ultimate Attack:


One of the best parts of Donaar's story when Ryan was relaying it, was his description of Donaar's "breath" weapon. Instead of exhaling acid, he instead vomits it "like a cat hacking up a hairball". As soon as we heard that, we knew we had our ultimate. Our resident Art Director Adam Kosh brought Donaar's hairball-hacking breath weapon to life in epic fashion. Donaar will cleave through a few baddies with his comically large sword Toothbrush, and vomit an acid pool that will deal damage to enemies that walk through it.

If you're at PAX Australia this weekend (or know someone who is) check the showbook for a code to unlock Donaar's Yum-Yum Hut chef variant outfit!

Donaar's Equipment



Slot 1: Giant Sword
  • Donaar's giant sword, Toothbrush, increases the DPS of all champions.
Slot 2: Toothbrush
  • Donaar's actual toothbrush, a bejeweled toothbrush he calls Percival, will increase the DPS of all champions. Tooth decay is a real problem when you're constantly vomiting acid!
Slot 3: Yum-Yum Hut Menu
  • The menu for Donaar's diner increases the effect of Aura of Vitality.
Slot 4: Decisionst's Coin
  • Donaar's role in the C-Team is the decisionist. It means that his vote counts twice. In our game, the decisionist coin buffs Lead By Example.
Slot 5: Eggy
  • Donaar's goddaughter Eggy/Chronaar increases the damage of his ultimate attack.
Slot 6: Cape
  • Donaar's regal and totally epic cape decreases the cooldown of his ultimate attack.

What about any other Donaar Details I'm looking for?

Donaar is Chaotic Good, a member of the Acq Inc "C" Team, and his stats are as follows:
Str: 18 Dex: 8 Con: 14 Int: 10 Wis: 10 Cha: 16

TL/DR- Final Donaar Thoughts

Donaar is a goofy, braggadocious buffoon, and we love him as a support/healer. He uses his Command ability to deal random effects to random enemies because he's the decisionist, darn it! He buffs the damage of those in his column and behind him, making him a row 1 or row 2 stalwart. He also heals the Champions in the formation who have lost the most health, keeping them fighting longer. His ultimate attack will bring a tear to your eye, his eye, and anyone unlucky enough to walk through the mess it creates!

We'll be watching the discussion online and on discord to see how well she's received, so let us know what you think on Facebook, Twitter, or on the official Discord! If you are enjoying Farideh, consider checking out the C-Team broadcasts

BW2: Halloween Event, 2018 Edition! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Halloween is Coming to Bushwhackia!

Who doesn't love a good haunted mansion? Well, that's what Halloween in Bushwhackia is all about! But to decorate your very own, you need to do what you do best! Go out into the world and whack bushes to find Pumpkins. Once you have found a patch of pumpkins, you can buy decorations from Glenda outside the mansion, or from the "Store" button while you're in Build Mode inside. Once you feel you've got enough, start laying out your design inside. (You can also purchase the same decorations for Bush Bucks from the Cop in the event area.)

You do not have to place all your collected decorations on display in the Mansion in order for them to count towards "Halloween Collector," they will count so long as they are within your haunted house inventory.

The goal is to scare the pants off the 8 children standing in front of the house, all of varying levels of bravery. The more you scare them, the more candy you'll earn in return. And you're going to want that candy so you can trade it for the custom items at the event store! You can try scaring them every 20 hours after you scared them the first time.

Glenda the Good Witch isn't just for buying decorations with Pumpkins. You will also be getting several quests from her throughout the event for special interactive decorations. As you complete each of her four quests, you can request help from your friends* by talking to the Construction Worker to increase the decoration's scariness.

*Platforms which do not support Friend Lists will have an adjusted static scariness.

The Haunted Mansion Photo Contest will be starting soon!

Gotta Collect them all!

What can possibly make your house scarier? How about some Creatures which wander around your mansion! Each creature will become available for a set amount of dates which you can then request from friends* by talking to the the Cop.

Creatures are available on the following schedule:
Black Cats - AVAILABLE at Event launch, UNTIL Sun Oct 21, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Witches - AVAILABLE Sun Oct 21, Noon PDT UNTIL Tues Oct 23, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Zombies - AVAILABLE Tues Oct 23, Noon PDT UNTIL Thurs Oct 25, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Bats - AVAILABLE Thurs Oct 25, Noon PDT UNTIL Sat Oct 27, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Spiders - AVAILABLE Sat Oct 27, Noon PDT UNTIL Mon Oct 29, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Ghost Butler - AVAILABLE Mon Oct 29, Noon PDT UNTIL Wed Oct 31, 11:59:59 AM PDT
Franken-Dogs - AVAILABLE Wed Oct 31, Noon PDT UNTIL the Event End

*Platforms which do not support Friends Lists can receive a single creature for free as they become available, by speaking to the Cop. The Sparkly Vampire is still available for Bush Bucks if you want it in your haunted house.

Candy! Candy! Candy!

To buy the custom items, you need your Candy! Not only do you get it from scaring those insolent little kiddies, you also net some from completing the various quests given to you by the Halloween NPCs hanging out in the event area!

Plus from Wednesday October 31st until the end of the event, you can hunt down denizens of Bushwhackia and Trick-or-Treat with them for Candy goodness! There will be a spooky character standing in front of a pile of Candy in each of the major areas! So 1 in the Mysterious Forest, 1 in the Shady Detour, etc. NPCs have been added up to the Spine of the World!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I find the Pumpkins?
    Just keep whacking. The Holiday Item runes and pets will help attract them as well.

  • How do I decorate my Mansion?
    You need to whack up Pumpkins. You can buy decorations from Glenda in the event area, or from the Store when you're in Build mode inside the Mansion. Once you have decorations, you can place them like you're decorating your ranch using Build mode.

  • How do I scare the Kids?
    Just keep buying decorations and getting friends to up the scare level of your interactive decorations. As your event progress increases, you will scare the kids more and more. As well, when you reach a certain level of scariness, the kids will elect to no longer tour your house.

  • Does the Timey-Wimey watch or Time Turner affect the Kids?
    No, the kids do not have quest cooldowns, so trinket effects that work for quests will not apply to them.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Making your mansion as scary as possible by buying decorations (but you don't have to place them all.)

  • 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.
