Idle Champions: Wintershield 2 
Posted in Idle Champions.

It's time for the Magical Talking Map to take the Champions on another adventure around Waterdeep to celebrate another Wintershield, marking the end of one year and the transition into the next!

This year the Champions are joined by a deadly and devout Cleric of Kelemvor, Nerys Kathon, ally to Minsc, Boo, Delina, and the Heroes of Baldur's Gate!

Wintershield 2 runs until Monday, January 7th, 2019 at 12:00pm PST, introduces Nerys Kathon, War Domain Cleric of Kelemvor, and also brings back Barrowin Undurr, the Gold Dwarf Cleric!

New Champion: Nerys Kathon

    Nerys Kathon joined the Heroes of Baldur's Gate on a mission to protect her church, but was soon pulled into a harrowing journey to Barovia and beyond. As a cleric of Kelemvor, she grew up in service to the dying and the dead, and developed a cold detachment to anything outside of duties to her faith. Beneath that frosty exterior is a loyal and caring adventurer, but it's a side she rarely shows to anyone outside her closest friends.
Nerys is a Support / Healer Champion. She uses her Spiritual Weapon ability to support DPS Champions, giving a powerful extra attack to the highest DPS Champion in the formation, while at the same time healing Champions within two spaces. When you want to add Nerys to your formation, you can swap her with Arkhan (Slot 12).

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

Returning Champion: Barrowin Undurr

    A proud daughter of Clan Undurr and a devout follower of Gorm Gulthyn, the dwarven god of vigilance and duty. She spent fifteen years in the city of Ironmaster, in Icewind Dale, overseeing and protecting her family’s investment in the city’s lucrative mining operations. However, she saw little action and feared that her talents were being squandered. She has recently found a home within a budding organization called the Order of the Gauntlet, which vigilantly guards against the rise of evil in all its forms.

Barrowin is a Support / Healer Champion. She uses her Blessed Hammer ability to increase the power of Champion’s attacks through a stacking buff each time she attacks, while at the same time healing Champions in her column. When you want to add Barrowin to your formation, you can swap her with Tyril (Slot 10).

Year Two Variants

  • Dragons Are Wild — The Cult of the Dragon attempts to distract you by unleashing illusionary dragons within the walls of Waterdeep! Armored Bronze Dragon Wyrmlings spawn in each area. They do no damage and drop no gold.

  • A Waterdhavian Party — Now that you're a 'local' adventuring group, you've become a tourist attraction. Two Drunk Waterdhavians join your adventure, taking up slots in your formation and moving every 25 areas.

  • Once More with Necromancy — Nerys begins the adventure in your formation. Relentless Undead spawn in each area, attacking your formation. When Relentless Undead are killed, they get back up after three seconds and continue their attack. However, Relentless Undead killed by Nerys' Spiritual Weapon are destroyed for good.

Year One Variants

  • The Chatty Map — The map is extremely chatty. Every 15 seconds it engages in deep conversation with a random Champion in your formation, disabling their DPS and Formation Abilities for 15 seconds.

  • The Cult of Daggers — Dagger-throwing Cultists spawn alongside normal waves and toss daggers at random Champions in your formation. These additional monsters drop no gold.

  • Only the Strong Survive — Only Champions with a Strength stat of 13 or higher can be used.

See the in-game FAQ for more information!

Idle Champion Spotlight: Nerys Kathon 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Today, we're going to go into early detail on our newest Champion: Nerys Kathon, the Human Cleric of Kelemvor and the latest addition to the Heroes of Baldur's Gate!

Nerys will be available in our next Year Two Event, Wintershield, which launches on Wednesday, December 26th. I hope this blog will give you all you need to know about our latest champion. But don't forget that Wintershield is also a chance to collect and gear up Barowin Undurr, the Dwarf Cleric from last year's Wintershield extravaganza!

How you can unlock Nerys:

Nerys is unlocked by playing Wintershield, a limited-time event launching on December 26th at noon Pacific and running until January 7th at noon Pacific. Once you unlock Nerys, she swaps with Arkhan, Zorbu, and Azaka (Slot 12)

Who is Nerys:

Nerys Kathon joined the Heroes of Baldur's Gate on a mission to protect her church, but was soon pulled into a harrowing journey to Barovia and beyond. As a cleric of Kelemvor, she grew up in service to the dying and the dead and developed a cold detachment to anything outside of duties to her faith. Beneath that frosty exterior is a loyal and caring adventurer, but it's a side she rarely shows to anyone outside her closest friends.

Nerys is a member of the Heroes of Baldur's Gate. A group of adventures known well throughout Baldur's Gate and the Sword Coast. Other members include Minsc (and Boo!), Delina, Krydle, and Shandie. Minsc & Delina are already in-game, and Krydle and Shandie may join them sometime in 2019...

The Heroes of Baldur's Gate have been featured in the IDW comic series' written by Jim Zub titled Legends of Baldur's Gate, Shadows of the Vampire, Frost Giant's Fury, and the most recent, Evil at Baldur's Gate which featured a variant cover on the back of issue 5 drawn by our very own Adam Kosh!


Nerys's Design:

Nerys was created by Jim Zub and Max Dunbar for the Shadows of the Vampire comic series and she's not your typical cleric. To quote Jim: "As a cleric of Kelemvor she sees to the dying and the dead and regards most pain with a sense of cold detachment even as she heals others and helps them deal with their own suffering." Nerys is a devout follower of Kelemvor, known as the God of the Dead. She firmly stands by the idea that death comes to all, and those that die should move on. Because of that belief, she is strongly against the concept of undead.


Max Dunbar created a Nerys image for twitter that coincided with our launch on consoles!

We chatted with Jim Zub about what makes Nerys tick and how best we could integrate her with the champions. In the end, we landed on a late-game healer who focuses on helping the team kill enemies and stay alive until it is their time to meet their maker.

Base Attack - Dash and Slash: Nerys cleaves all targets near the closest enemy.


Formation Ability: Spiritual Weapon: Nerys' first formation ability unlocks her companion, a spiritual weapon. The spiritual weapon takes the form of her greatsword and attacks with her, doing a high percentage of her damage.

Formation Ability: War Healing: Nerys' next formation ability unlocks her healing capabilities. As death comes to all, so too does it come to baddies. Whenever an enemy is killed, Nerys heals the most damaged Champion within 2 slots of her.

Formation Ability: Unholy: Nerys' next formation ability focuses on the type of enemies Nerys abhors: Undead. She increases the damage all champions do to undead monsters. She'll be a great addition to any Tomb of Annihilation adventure!

Formation Ability: Follow My Friend: Nerys' final formation ability breaks the mold of spiritual weapon a bit, but it works with the spirit of her character. Her Spiritual Weapon now follows the Champion with the highest DPS, doing a portion of THEIR damage instead of Nerys'! Once you unlock this upgrade, having Nerys in your party will be a huge DPS boost in addtion to having her added healing capabilities. Speaking of those:

Nerys' Specializations:

Nerys's specializations are all about deciding whether the party needs her to focus on healing or damage.

If you choose Dig In, Nerys will heal an additional time. Once when an enemy is reduced to 50%, AND again when it's killed! If you choose Kelemvor's Will, she increases the effect of her Spiritual Weapon, including when it's basing it's damage off of another Champions' DPS.

Nerys' Ultimate Attack: Tip the Scales


For Nerys' ultimate, we wanted to come up with something really fun. She jumps into the fray, unleashing a halo of divine energy. It hits all enemies and both decreases the damage of those enemies AND increases the damage the party does against all enemies (including newly spawned ones) for 30 seconds.

Nerys' Equipment



Slot 1: Greatsword
  • Nerys' main weapon increases the damage of all Champions.
Slot 2: Breastplate
  • Nerys' armor increases the damage of all Champions.
Slot 3: Eyeshadow
  • Her eyeshadow increases the effect of her Spiritual Weapon.
Slot 4: Cloak
  • Her cloak increases the effect of her War Healing.
Slot 5: Holy Symbol of Kelemvor
  • Her holy symbol increases her ultimate attack damage.
Slot 6: Barovian Locket
  • The locket that led to the Heroes of Baldur's Gate's adventures in Barovia reduces the cooldown of her ultimate attack.

What about any other Nerys details I'm looking for?

Nerys is Lawful Good and a member of the Heroes of Baldur's Gate. Her stats are as follows:
Str: 16 Dex: 13 Con: 15 Int: 12 Wis: 17 Cha: 15

TL/DR- Final Nerys Thoughts

Nerys is a is a strong, smart, and brave cleric of Kelemvor. She'll heal damaged Champions whenever you kill an enemy, increase the Champions' damage against undead monsters, and uses her Spiritual Weapon to boost the DPS of the highest DPS Champion in your formation.

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 Nerys, consider checking out the Legends of Baldur's Gate comic series by IDW!

Happy Holidays Champions Fans! Thanks for an amazing 2018! We can't wait to start 2019 with all of you!

Grand Tour of the Sword Coast Variants

  • Underdeep Cartography: Expert Opinion — Volothamp Geddarm takes up a slot in the formation, reducing the damage of adjacent Champions.

Waterdeep: Dragon Heist Variants

  • Building Trust: Sleuth it Out — Only Champions with an Intelligence score of 12 or higher may be used.

  • A Dinner Party: Modron Assistance — Nordom the Modron joins you on this adventure, taking up a slot in your formation. Nordom is reminding the waterdhavians of the Great Modron March, inspiring them to defend Waterdeep. Damage caused by humanoid monsters in this adventure is increased.

  • A Botched Kidnapping: Domesticated Owlbears — A crazed Owlbear attacks the party in each area, stunning a random Champion.

Idle Champions: Console Celebration! 
Posted in Idle Champions.


It's finally here! This is the week we launch Idle Champions on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. To mark the occasion we have a number of exciting activities planned starting with the launch of our brand new Founder's Pack on Steam, Android Tablets, and iPads starting today.

It features an exclusive undead skin for Celeste based on lore from Neverwinter's Module 12. Chantelle Tatum, Game Designer at Cryptic Studios, shared the complete backstory with us:

In Neverwinter’s Module 12, the Jungles of Chult, Celeste joined our adventurers on their trip to Chult, however, their ship was destroyed on route by a Dragon Turtle. Celeste was washed ashore on the coast of Chult, where she then tried to find her way to Port Nyanzaru. However, her misfortunes didn’t end there. As she tried to survive the trip through the Jungles of Chult, Celeste had to deal with the dangerous wildlife, including a run in with the monstrous Tyrannosaurs Rex; only to fall captive to a tribe of Batiri and taken to their village Yellyark. Unfortunately, this is where she met her demise.

Our adventurers, sent by Nanny Pu’pu to eradicate the Batiri tribe, found the deceased Celeste in one of their prisoner cages. Since Acererak had his Soulmonger in use, there was no way to truly resurrection Celeste. So, with some skepticism, our adventurers turned to Nanny Pu’pu for help, who was able to revive Celeste temporary… undead; Celeste was very put out about this when she came to. Only after confronting Acererak and bringing an end to the Soulmonger, was Celeste able to be revived as her normal self.

The undead process may or may not have involved sacrificing Batiri with the help of Makos. Also, the gem in her forward was part of that ritual, where it may or may not be tethering her soul to her undead body.

They will be available on both PS4 and Xbox the same day that the game launches on those platforms. Finally, we also details of our week-long in-game celebration starting on Friday.

The new undead Celeste skin available exclusively in the Founder's Pack.


Similar to how we celebrated our Anniversary, we are launching our in-game Console Celebration Week starting this Friday! From December 14th until December 21st, players will be able to earn daily rewards by logging in. All you have to do is check in and play every day to pick up a Console Celebration Chest. Each of these chests contains four unique items curated by our own Live Services Manager, Chris Dupuis, on behalf the Idle Champions team.



Then throughout this week and next, we're going to be talking to all the content creators who have a Champion in the game, starting with Scott Kurtz and his character, Binwin Bronzebottom, tomorrow. To cap it all off, we have an exclusive interview and reveal our latest upcoming Champion, Nerys Kathon, created by Jim Zub & Max Dunbar on Friday the 21st.

Follow the official twitch.tv/dnd channel, the Idle Champions Mixer Channel, and our Steam store page, so you don't miss any of the awesome interviews.

Also, be sure to download and play Idle Champions on PlayStation 4 starting tomorrow and Xbox One this Friday, 14th December.

COTLI: The Nate Before Christmas 4 

    Twas the Nate Before Christmas, with a chill in the air,
    a new Crusader arrives — Wrena the Fair!

    she's badass but friendly, joyous and caring,
    she joins the Crusaders, in a holiday pairing,
    from an Elvish enclave, deep in the mountains,
    she journeys outward, destination uncertain,
    to fight for her people, there's no line she won't cross,
    she'll slay all the monsters, just like a boss!

The end of another year approaches, and with it a brand-new badass Elven Crusader arrives to herald in the new year! Collect Wrena the Fair and the rest of The Nate Before Christmas' Crusaders before the event wraps up on New Year's Day, January 1, 2019!

The Nate Before Christmas 4 runs until January 1, 2019 at 12:00PM PT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Wrena the Fair

Wrena the Fair is one badass mutha — but she's also really friendly, and wants to promote Elvish welfare! She's come down from the Elven enclave in the mountains, as she's heard about your band of Crusaders...

Wrena is a DPS Crusader the way we wanted Tauriel to be (we're looking at YOU, Peter Jackson). She does DPS based upon how many Crusaders are in the formation.

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. Xander the Xmas Dragon, The Dark Helper, Robo-Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, and RoboSanta are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Wrena, the Fair | Wrena takes up a slot in the formation. Only elves adjacent to Wrena do DPS. Wrena decreases Global DPS and Gold Find for each non-Elf Crusader adjacent to her. Taskmasters are disabled. Reach area 600.

  • A Very Fair Christmas | Only Elf and Angel Crusaders are available to use. The Reset ability has moved to Alan the Archangel at level 250. Reach area 700.

  • Deck the Halls | A fragile Christmas ornament takes up a slot in the formation and increases spawn speed for each monster killed. If the ornament dies, you instantly wipe the area. Additionally, angrey green Grunches spawn at random and they live for at least a second. Reach area 750.

  • Die Harder | Bruise Wallace takes up a slot in the formation. He buffs your DPS by 2000% minus 200% for every dead Crusader. Monsters also have increased health. Reach area 800.

  • Caution! Hot Chocolate! | Hot Chocolate cups spawn randomly. The first few buff your DPS for 15 seconds. If you've killed 7 on an area, all subsequent Hot Chocolates killed disable your DPS for 15 seconds. Reach area 850.


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, 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 January 1, 2019 at 12:00PM PT to complete The Nate Before Christmas 4!

Inventory Favourites (December 14th, 2018)

- Added ability to favourite Pets, Mounts, Hats, Capes, Gauntlets, Swords, Eyewear, and Trinkets in your inventory so you can more easily find what you’re looking for.

- Improved load time of opening your inventory by only loading the graphics of visible inventory items.

- Current equipped item/pet/mount/trinket now appears at the front of the inventory selection list regardless of the filter selected so you can find it easier for toggling it as a favourite.

- Empty item now appears at the front of the inventory selection list regardless of the filter selected so it is more accessible.

- Changed the "Age" filter for pets and mounts to sort ascending instead of descending, so you can more readily access your newest pets.

- Fixed the inventory button, like to change your hat, keeping the old tooltip when you unequip it.

- Fixed the inventory icons being wrong if you change tabs while they're loading, now that only the visible items are loaded instead of all at once.

- Fixed various reported typos and quest descriptions. Keep the reports coming!

December 14th, 2018
BW2: New Inventory Favourites feature! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Your Favourite Things

We'd like to introduce a new feature: Inventory Favouriting! This feature has been long overdue, particularly since there's been hundreds of various mounts, pets, trinkets, and custom items to sort through.

Here's how it works: When you choose an item in your inventory to change, say your hat, the list will pop up like normal, but with one small change. On the top left of the list you'll see a star. You can click this star to toggle "favouriting mode" on and off. Favouriting mode will show stars next to every item in the list, which you can click to either add it or remove it from your favourites for that inventory category.

Please note the following:
- You cannot equip an item from the list while in favouriting mode
- Changing the filter or closing the list while in favouriting mode will still update your favourites
- You can only favourite a maximum of 100 items per list

Also, there's a new filter for these inventory types called "Favourites" which, as you might guess, puts your favourite items at the front of the list. We've set "Favourites" as the default filter when you open up these lists for convenience.

That's it! Now pop open your inventory and mark your favourite things!

Discuss this new feature on the forums!

BW2: Christmas Time Is Here! Christmas Event 2018 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

'Tis the Season for Giving!

Get into the giving mood of the holiday season by tackling the Bushwhackia Christmas event.

You'll want to get started by heading to the event area in the Commons to meet up with the stranded elf and help him fix his teleporter. (It's delicate, OK?) Once you've got it operational, you'll be able to make the journey far to the North Pole where you'll find a bevy of characters who need your special skills to make the holiday celebrations work!

Your primary task will be helping the elves make presents by bringing them Candy Canes (that you find in bushes), but there is a veritable smorgasbord of holiday related quests to complete as well. All of these quests will unlock over the course of the event, with the last ones unlocking on Christmas Day.

Once you've found reindeer chow for the poor reindeer, then you can help out Santa by delivering a present to a random house daily.

New for 2018:
This year's update includes: a new Christmas tree for your ranch received from completing the Decorate Tree quest; a new Snowman companion from the Build a Snowman quest; another custom item for ice fishing; 4 new quests that unlock on Dec 22nd; and more!

Presents all Around!!

Like all other events in 2018, once a day, if you have excess tokens, you can send a Present to a friend! These presents will contain a random amount of gold, energy, mana, power and come with some other treats as well. If you want to send more presents in a day, it will cost you a few Bush Bucks. Talk to Sasha in the North Pole to learn more!
