COTLI: The Nate Before Christmas 5! 

    O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how angry are thy branches...!
    O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how much you embody the rage of nature and bring the wrath of the elements down upon us all!

Once again The Nate Before Christmas blesses our doors, and this year we are visited by the rage of nature: Kris, the Enraged Elemental!

The Nate Before Christmas 5 runs until Tuesday, December 31st at 12PM PST, introducing Kris, the Enraged Elemental and bringing back Frosty the Snowman, RoboSanta, The Dark Helper, RoboRudolph, Xander the Xmas Dragon, and Wrena the Fair!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Kris, the Enraged Elemental

Kris, the Enraged Elemental brings all the buffs to the formation you've come to expect from an angry tree: they reduce damage for Crusaders the furthest from them with True North, they are able to redirect angry monsters away from them with their Decorations, and they increase party damage with Festering Foliage.

But that's not all: the Fresh Air that Kris brings increases Global DPS for each Flora Crusader in the formation, including Kris, and they are able to increase the maximum health of Crusaders with Forest Furor. Take Root prevents your DPS and Click Damage from dropping, while Winter Vigil can revive your formation once per area to save the day!

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Kris, the Enraged Elemental | Kris, the Enraged Elemental takes up a slot in the formation. Only Flora Crusaders can do DPS.
    Reach area 400.

  • Home Alone | You can only use one Crusader in the formation.
    Reach area 450.

  • O Tannenbaum | All enemies are various tree monsters, and all bosses are various tree bosses. Enemies spawn in larger waves. Area quest requirements doubled.
    Reach area 475.

  • It's Elemental | Five different new elemental monsters spawn. Only projectile damage can kill these elementals, but all crusaders are allowed on the objective.
    Reach area 500.

  • Koliada | Two carolers take up places in formation. Sun monsters spawn randomly and either drop lots of gold or reduce your gold find.
    Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Christmas 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, Tier 4 and Tier 5 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 when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

What About Older Event Crusaders?

Previously-available The Nate Before Christmas Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of The Nate Before Christmas 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:

Players will have until Tuesday, December 31st at 12:00PM PST to complete The Nate Before Christmas 5. Good luck!

COTLI: Holiday Grab Bag Update, Dec 2019 

Come one, come all and gather round to hear some highlights of what this latest update for Crusaders brings!

Saved Formation Changes

You asked, we've answered! We've made some improvements to the Saved Formations system.

  • More Saved Formations - Now you can have up to 5 saved formations on every campaign!

  • Challenge Saved Formations - Now each Challenge has its own set of saved formations, so you won't have to worry about affecting your normal formation for each campaign!

  • Saved Formations on Tricky Objectives - Now you can save formations on objectives with alterations to the normal formations, to help you clear the objective. These saved formations will be cleared on changing objectives.

  • Guidebook Page - We've added a Saved Formations entry to the in-game Guidebook, so you can access information about how they work at any time.

Talent Changes

We've made the following changes to the Talents mentioned below, plus topped everyone back up to 3 respecs!

  • Sprint - We've extended the timer on boss areas to 10 seconds, and clarified how the Talent works on the Talent dialog.

  • 10K Training - We've reduced the cost of the Talent to be more manageable.

  • Montage Training - We've also reduced the cost of this Talent to be more manageable as well.

  • Phase Skip - In this new version of the Talent, each level increases the chance that you will skip an area entirely and it works on any objective.

  • Idolatry - We've increased the bonus each level of the talent gives you.

Improvements to Nargulg Granitehand

With this update, we took the time to revisit Nargulg's design, so he's a more competitive clicker.
  • Trickses - The old version increased Nargulg's personal click damage by 400%.

    The new version increases your click damage by 10% of your DPS.

  • Fellowses - The old version increased Nargulg's personal click damage for each Orc and Dwarf crusader in formation, multiplicatively.

    The new version increases the DPS of all Crusaders for each Orc or Dwarf in formation.

  • Yes, I Cheatses - Still increases Nargulg's personal click damage for every 25 levels.

  • Boo Magicses - The old version increased Nargulg's personal click damage by 50% for every Animal Crusader in formation, and decreased it for every Magical Crusader in formation.

    The new version increases the effect of Trickses by 10% for each non-magical Crusader in formation.

  • Smashdown! - Previously named All the Yardses, the old version increased Nargulg's personal click damage for every 50 areas unlocked.

    The new Smashdown upgrade increases your Critical Chance by 100% on monsters with less than 20% health.

  • Speedy Feetses - The old version increased Nargulg's personal click damage by 50% for every 50% of bonus spawn speed you had.

    The new version increases your global click damage by 50% for every 50% of bonus spawn speed you have.

  • Club Smasheses - The old version increased your global click damage by 10% of your DPS for each Orc Crusader in formation.

    The new version causes Critical Clicks to also deal 25% of their damage to nearby monsters.

We also changed Nargulg's gear, to match his new kit.
  • The Kilts - Previously it had the legendary effect of increasing the DPS of Crusaders adjacent to Nargulg.

    It now increases the DPS of Crusaders who are adjacent to at least one Orc or Dwarf.

  • The Clubs - They previously increased the personal click damage of Nargulg and had a legendary effect of increasing Naruglg's old All the Yardses upgrade.

    They now increase the effect of Nargulg's Club Smashes upgrade and have a legendary effect of increasing your global click damage.

  • The Shields - They previously increased your global DPS and had a legendary effect of increasing your global DPS per Dwarf or Orc in the formation.

    They now buff Nargulg's Smashdown upgrade and have a legendary effect of increasing your critical click damage multiplier.

Other Highlights of Today's Update

We've also done a handful of other cool things today! This is a just a brief list. For full details, check out the in-game change log!
  • New Skins! - We've added 3 new skins to the skin store! One each for Mindy, Eiralon and Baenarall!

  • New Taskmasters! We've added 2 new taskmasters to the in-game stores!

  • Crafting Screen Improvements! Crusaders who have gear that can be upgraded now display an arrow on the crafting screen. You can also filter the list of Crusaders by those with Upgrades available or those just in your formation!

  • Active Ability Improvement! Magnify and Storm Rider can now be cast during area transitions, by you or your taskmasters!

We hope you enjoy this little grab bag of holiday fun!
