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:

COTLI: Emo's New Moon 5 

The entity stood before them on four legs, a malignant hulk of flesh and skulls and candles. It had no eyes. It had too many teeth. Yet despite its gruesome appearance, the Crusaders found themselves strangely comforted by its presence. The Evanescent welcomed the Crusaders like a shepherd would their flock, ready take them on a journey into the beyond.

"Come with us," spoke The Evanescent, its mouth filled with row after row of jagged teeth. "We will show you the way..."

The skies have darkened and Emo's New Moon has risen once again. For our second Tier 5 Event, we welcome a new and truly otherworldly new Crusader. Are you ready to journey across the veil with this eldritch monstrosity?

Emo's New Moon 5 runs until Tuesday, November 5th at 12PM PST, introducing The Evanescent and bringing back Wendy the Witch, Jack O'Lantern, Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul, Fright-o-Tron 4000, Viktor the Vampire, and Trixie the Treater!

New Tier 5 Crusader: The Evanescent

Stories tell of beings that escort souls from one existence to another. The Evanescent is one such being, an entity tied to the entropy and transition of all things into... what comes next.

When it comes to your formations, The Evanescent brings something unique to Slot 22. They use The Great Equalizer to grant the base tags of each Crusaders in The Evanescent's column to each other Crusader in the column. For example, if you have Zoraeban, Demonic Angel in your column along with The Evanescent, every Crusader in that column will be an Angel and a Demon in addition to their other base tags.

Vanitas, Bring Me to Life, and Memento Mori each offer more straightforward Global DPS buffs. Candle in the Window buffs Crusaders behind The Evanescent in the formation for each Enchantment Point (EP) from heroes not in the formation, while Until the Mourning increases the potency of the buff. Finally, Samhain increases Global DPS for each unique tag in the formation.

The Evanescent awaits all things. After all, we all die eventually...

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit The Evanescent | The Evanescent takes up a slot in the formation and disables the DPS and upgrades of adjacent Crusaders with the Support tag. Reach area 400 with the new difficulty scaling.

  • Rest in Pieces | Only Angels, Demons, and Undead Crusaders - along with Trixie the Treater - may be used. Reach area 450.

  • Dreams on Yew Street | Special Freddie monsters have a chance to spawn with each wave of monsters. The Freddies will take out the DPS and upgrades of a Crusader, one Crusader per Freddie on screen. The Freddies disappear when they hit the formation. Reach area 475.

  • The Henry Spooky Photo Show | Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul begins in your formation, and cannot be moved or swapped out. Other Crusaders do no DPS. Riff Raff and Magenta also occupy slots in the formation, changing to different slots every 100 areas. Reach area 500.

  • Halloween Potluck | Wendy the Witch starts in your formation and cannot be moved or swapped out. Damage done to monsters is based on the lowest DPS Crusader in your formation. Trick or Treat Monsters have returned. Each area has double the number of enemies or bosses. Finally, enemies drop less gold and quest items, and the requirements to pass an area are doubled. Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Halloween 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.

COTLI: Carnival of Sorrows 5! 

Come one, come all and step right up! That's right! No mirrors, no tricks! It's just magic!

The fifth edition of the Carnival of Sorrows event is now live, and adds a magic show to its attractions!

This is also our first Tier 5 event! Read on for more details about what's new for this year of events!

Carnival of Sorrows 5 runs until Tuesday, October 15th at Noon Pacific Time, and introduces conjoined twins, Carmen and Petunia!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Carmen and Petunia

Carmen and Petunia both love stage magic. Petunia's specialty is tricks with turning balls into fruits while Carmen is so good at slight of hand, you'll wonder how she did it. Finding less than stellar success advertising as just a magic act, they've embraced being conjoined twins and have been making the money ever since with their new marketing angle: conjoined magicians!

Once you've recruited Carmen and Petunia, you'll find them providing support to your formations that contain female and human Crusaders, and they'll provide their financial skills to help your gold find. They occupy seat 32 on the bench.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Sashimi the Seal, Chiyome, The Half-Blood Elf, Mindy the Mime, Mister the Monkey, and Pete the Carney are all once again available to unlock!

What's New for Tier 5

Another year of events means some changes to how events work, and we hope you like them!
  • Accessing the Event | The Fourth Time's the Charm Talent now unlocks Tier 4 objectives and higher, which means it unlocks the Tier 5 objectives if you have it purchased, and it will unlock additional higher objective tiers in the future.

  • Event Idol Bonus | The buff to Idols for completing event objectives now buffs the Boss Idol drops in addition to the normal Idols you earn, though at a different rate from normal Idols.

  • Event Free Plays | Good news everyone! You can now increase the Free Play bonus for free plays on permanent campaigns by completing areas on the event free play!

  • Event Currency Costs | Since there are now 5 tiers of objectives to complete in an event period, we've lowered the cost of the objectives for Tiers 1 to 3, to help those players who are playing catch-up with an event.

  • Starting EP | Tier 5 event Crusaders will come with 450 EP when you recruit them.

  • Tier 5 Objectives | Rather than just go further and further, we're trying something different. The areas you are required to reach to complete the Tier 5 objectives are lower, but the difficulty of the monsters scales up much more quickly.

  • Bonus Skin! | The reward for completing the 5th Tier 5 event objective has been changed. Instead of awarding a Tier 5 event Jeweled chest, the reward is now a skin for one of the event Crusaders! For the Carnival of Sorrows event, the lucky Crusader getting a skin is Chiyome! This skin does not have an effect associated with it, but does make her fit in more with her fellow Carnival Crusaders when she wears it.


New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Carmen and Petunia | Carmen and Petunia occupy a slot in the formation. They reduce the effectiveness of other columns' formation abilities by 50%. Reach area 400.

  • The Prestige | A dunk tank occupies a slot in the formation and every few seconds a Crusader drowns. Reach area 450.

  • The Illusionist | A crystal ball occupies a slot in the formation and summons visions of your potential future self. Reach area 475.

  • The Carnivorous Carnival | A beast tamer occupies a slot in the formation and summons savage beasts randomly. Only the front spot of the formation can deal DPS to dispatch your enemies. Reach area 500.

  • Fortune's Fool | Some days you just spend it all on trying to win the supreme prize on a rigged carnival game. In this objective, your Idols provide no Gold bonus. Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Carnival 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.

You'll have until Tuesday, October 15th at 12:00pm Pacific Time to complete Carnival of Sorrows 5!

COTLI: Sasha's Schoolhouse Scourge 4 

Heading back to school is the worst. Literally anything is better! Even a full-on invasion by demonic hordes resulting in some kind of 'Schoolhouse Scourge' would be better.

This year it's time to get edgy. You thought we were being edgy last year with our brooding Crusader? Well this new pixie gives no fluffs! Their name is Aphelion, the Distant, and they are definitely too cool for school...

Sasha's Schoolhouse Scourge 4 introduces Aphelion, the Distant and brings back Karen, the Cat Teenager, Mr Boggins, the Substitute, Willy the Weregoat, The Exchange Student, and Zoraeban, Demonic Angel. The adventure ends on Tuesday, September 24th, 2019 at 12:00PM Pacific!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Aphelion, the Distant

    "You couldn’t handle my true dark side..."
Don't let the size of this moon pixie fool you — Aphelion is a formidable Support/DPS Crusader. Their Waxing Gibbous increases the DPS of Crusaders at the top and bottom of the formation, and Twilight increases the effect of Waxing Gibbous for each Evil Crusader in the formation.

When it comes to self-DPS buffs, Synchronous Rotation increases Aphelion's DPS for each Crusader affected by Waxing Gibbous, and it gets even better once you unlock Waning Crescent to improve the buff for each Flora Crusader. Jade Rabbit is a straight self-DPS buff, and Lunar Mare increases Aphelion's DPS by the square of all owned Epic or Legendary items(!).

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. Karen, the Cat Teenager, Mr Boggins, the Substitute, Willy the Weregoat, The Exchange Student, and Zoraeban, Demonic Angel are all once again available to unlock!

    Reach area 850.


Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Educational 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 Tuesday, September 24th, 2019 at 12:00PM Pacific to complete Sasha's Schoolhouse Scourge 4!
August 22nd
COTLI: Dr. Evil's Summer Sabotage 4 

OH NO! DR. EVIL IS AT IT AGAIN!

Wait... didn't this happen last year? And the year before? And the year before that?

We should have seen this coming! Luckily, it seems at least one person was prepared for Dr. Evil's inevitable return: Euodia, the Fencer is here to help the Crusaders foil Dr. Evil's plans once again!

Dr. Evil's Summer Sabotage 4 introduces Euodia, the Fencer and brings back Veronica, the Android Archer, Bubba, the Swimming Orc, The Gold Hound, Milgrid the Mining Mage, and Dr. Evil, PhD. The adventure ends on Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Euodia, the Fencer

Euodia is deceptively fast for a minotaur, able to increase the speed of monster spawns through First Blood and Lightning Precision and even increase the speed of quest item drops with Sense of Direction. She can even improve First Blood with Fancy Footwork as Orcs, Dwarves, and Elves join the formation! Euodia improves DPS and Global DPS through Cradle the Bird and Toe Pokes.

If you want to get as far as possible as quickly as possible, Euodia, the Fencer is the Crusader for you!

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. Veronica, the Android Archer, Bubba, the Swimming Orc, The Gold Hound, Milgrid the Mining Mage, and Dr. Evil, PhD are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Langley, the Conductor

If you're hoping for extra Gold Find and Support, Langley is here to help!

Ticket Please and Whistle all the Way increase your Gold Find even more.
