Today's update features the ninth (nein!) update for our Grand Tour of the Sword Coast campaign, along with our new Feats system! Read on to learn more!

Note: You will need to complete the Grand Tour Adventure Towering Expectations in order to access these new adventures.

Feats

Feats have arrived! Feats are small, Champion-specific buffs that can be unlocked and assigned to your Champions. They offer an additional level of customization for your favorite Champions — and may even provide some new formation opportunities!

Various rarities of Feats can be found or unlocked throughout Idle Champions. Some Feats are available by default for each Champion, while others are found in Gold Chests, purchased with gems, or sold with Weekend Buff Chests or other premium packages. Don't worry, Feats sold with Weekend Buffs or premium packages will also be available for larges sum of gems when the chests or package goes on sale.

For more information on Feats, check out our Feats Developer Blog.

Who Lurks in Lurkwood

Back from Barovia, the Champions find themselves on the road to Mirabar. Along the way they run into Volothamp Geddarm, who invites them on a hunt for an elusive beast...
  • Variant: Bullywugs in the Bog — Two local Bullywugs take up spots in the formation. Reach area 325.

Orcs are Wild

A wounded Eye of Gruumsh pleads for aid. A Hobgoblin Wizard has taken over his tribe and corrupted them, and it's up to the Champions to stop it..
  • Variant: An Abyssal Situation — Abyssal Chickens are everywhere! After every 10th enemy spawn, an armored Abyssal Chicken will appear. They do not grant gold or quest progress. Every 10 areas the number of Abyssal Chickens that spawns increases by one (2 per area in area 11–20, 3 per area from 21–30, 4 per area from 31–40, etc, with 32 in area 291–300). Reach area 300.
