COTLI: Kaine's Dinner of Doom 5! 

    Seasons leaves, wilting and falling,
    now's the time: Momma Kaine's calling!
    Cold, gray, dark, wet, and gloom,
    The perfect time, for dinner of doom!

Kaine's Dinner of Doom 5 runs until Tuesday, December 3rd at 12PM PST, introducing Gemthel, the Gourmet and bringing back RoboTurkey, Momma Kaine, Paul the Pilgrim, Petra the Pilgrim, Chef Casey, and 43G1S!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Gemthel, the Gourmet

Gemthel, the Gourmet brings additional support and healing to Slot 13. She uses Rock Sirloin to boost Global DPS, she shields Crusaders with Well Fed, and her Norog Spice adds increased potency to the formation, increasing the chance that Crusaders' chance-based abilities activate by 5%.

As you level Gemthel, you unlock additional Global DPS with Pheasant Under Glass, a 4x increase in DPS for every 25 levels over 200 with Refined Tastes, and projectile attacks to Crusaders in her column with Food Fight!.

Make no mistake, this Royal Dwarven Lady is here to liven up your Dinner of Doom!

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Gemthel | Gemthel, the Gourmet takes up a slot in the formation. New steak and veggie escorts also take up slots in formation, and rotate around the formation every 25 areas. While they are adjacent to Gemthel, Gemthel provides a DPS buff; Otherwise Gemthel is hungry and debuffs the Crusaders. Legendary Effects are disabled on this objective.
    Reach area 400.

  • Grumpy Old Men | No DPS-tagged Crusaders can be used. Three grumpy escorts occupy slots in the formation, each with a preferred tag. Crusaders with a matching tag need to be adjacent to them in order to do DPS.
    Reach area 450.

  • Sweet November | A new formation should make this more of a challenge!
    Reach area 475.

  • Grindhouse | All quest areas get changed to kill 40 monsters. Monsters spawn in waves of 10, and have resistance to CLK and DPS. Invulnerable ranged enemies spawn at random.
    Reach area 500.

  • Countdown to Christmas | A sneak peak of the new Christmas Crusader occupies a slot in formation. Christmas tree monsters spawn at random, which shield other monsters and can only be damaged by projectiles. The Christmas Crusader has a special projectile attack which, if it hits a monster, prevents that monster from counting for quest progress.
    Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Thanksgiving 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 Kaine's Dinner of Doom Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of Kaine's Dinner of Doom 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:


Players will have until Tuesday, December 3rd at 12:00PM PST to complete Kaine's Dinner of Doom 5. Good luck!
