COTLI: Trek Through the Hidden Temple 2018 

It's time for another 'last crusade': Montana James is back for another Trek Through the Hidden Temple, and he'll be taking the Crusaders on an all-new adventure in search of The Holy Guardian!

Trek Through the Hidden Temple 3 runs until Tuesday, May 15th at 12:00pm PDT. For more information, check out the How to Play / FAQ in-game!

New Tier 3 Crusader: The Holy Guardian

Ancient knight? Fallen angel? Whatever he may be, all you know about The Holy Guardian is that Crusaders closest to him find themselves healed far greater than those further away — and Crusaders further away have their damaged increased far more than those closest to him.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Montana James and Serpent King Draco by completing the respective Tier One objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Danni the Daring Damsel and Polly the Parrot, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit The Holy Guardian | The Holy Guardian takes up a central spot in the formation and reduces the DPS of Crusaders who are adjacent to him by 100%. Reach area 500.

  • Putting the "G" in Guardian | Only Crusaders with a "G" in their name are allowed in the formation. Reach area 600.

  • The Crumbling Temple | A stone falls from above and kills a random Crusader every 15 seconds in non-boss areas. Every 100 areas, the stones fall 1 second sooner. Reach area 650.

  • Temple of Inconvenience | Three mossy support pillars take up three slots in the formation. They move around every 50 areas. Reach area 700.

  • The Last Crusade(rs) | Every 40 areas a Crusader seat is locked out. Seats are locked in order from 1-28. Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Hidden Temple Jeweled 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 the Tier 2 and 3 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusader. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop.

You'll have until Tuesday, May 15th at 12:00pm PDT to complete Trek Through the Hidden Temple 3!
