Idle Champion Spotlight: Widdle 
Posted in Idle Champions.

With a burst of supreme speed this gnome dhampir will always shoot first and ask questions later. Some may see her as a monster, but to her companions she's a friend with sharp teeth and an even sharper smile!

Widdle is the final Champion to take a place next to her friends Orkira Illdrex, Avren, Penelope, Freely, Briv Steelmarrow, and Alyndra Sarrbarand from Heroes of the Planes! She joined the Heroes while on a mission to rescue her friend Rend from the clutches of Strahd von Zarovich, and will continue to help them as she participates in the Feast of the Moon next week!

I. Widdle

    Widdle's life goal is the destruction of Strahd, but with 423 years of gnomish wisdom, she realized she still needed more time. Becoming a dhampir seemed like the best option, and now she uses her enhanced speed and fearsome fangs to help her friends and show that being a dhampir does not make you a monster. With a big personality and an even bigger blunderbuss, she's ready to deal with any challenge!

Widdle is a Support, Healing and Speed Champion who's vampiric charms can buff the damage of her allies while encouraging them to attack faster. But all this battle can make a dhampir hungry, and those she buffs look extra tasty to oncoming enemies, making them spawn faster. When you want to add Widdle to your formation you can swap her with Celeste (Slot 2).

Ia. Heroes of the Planes Updates

Widdle is the final Heroes of the Planes Champion, and with her release we've updated several members of the group! Widdle is the first Champion to be released with the Speed tag, but we are also adding that tag to many other Champions, including Widdle's friend Briv Steelmarrow. Those tags will be updated on November 10th with the launch of Feast of the Moon. You can find out more about what the Speed tag means, and see what Champions it is being added to, in our Speed update blog!

When the full Heroes of the Planes family is assembled on Nov 10th, we will also update Alyndra's Portent Ability to include Briv, Orkira and Widdle. Here's her fully updated ability:
  • Heroes of the Planes — If Portent is applied to a Champion under the effect of certain Heroes of the Planes Champions' abilities, those effects are increased in power:
    • Avren — Mirror Image effects on the Portented Champion +100%.
    • Freely — Unlucky For Them +100% for each Portented Champion affected by Luck of Yondalla(stacking multiplicatively).
    • Penelope — Chwinga Mask: Tools for the Job Charm +100% for each Portented Champion affected by Chwinga Mask (stacking multiplicatively).
    • Briv — Netherese Steel effect on Portented Champion +100%.
    • Orkira — Elemental Fire effect +100% for each Portented Champion eligible for Lesser Restoration (stacking multiplicatively)
    • Widdle — All three of Widdle's effects from Vampiric Gaze increased by 100% on Portented Champions.
Finally on November 2nd we released an update to Penelope Half Pint who receive the following changes:
  • Minor Eruption's AOE applies the Have You Met My Friends debuff to all affected enemies
  • Max Story Time stacks increased to 40, up from 25
  • Increase base effect of Have You Met My Friends from 300% to 500%

III. Widdle's Design

We've been adding the Heroes of the Planes to our Champion roster for quite a while, and it's a wonderful joy to have Meagan Kenreck honor us by bringing the final member to the party! Meagan is a Twitch streamer, graphic designer, photoshop enthusiast, and advocate for inclusivity. She's also known as Sofieus on Silver and Steel, the co-host of "Todd and Meagan talk D&D", and also plays as Widdle in "The Adventures of Widdle and Rend", a D&D one on one show with her Husband, Todd, who plays as Rend.

Widdle always seems to be grinning as she leads the charge into adventure or battle. She focuses on increasing the damage and speed of her friends, boosting adjacent Champion damage with Vampiric Gaze while reducing their base attack cooldowns by encouraging them to Hurry Up Now. Her Specializations boost her damage buff based on specific ability scores, and her Vampiric Bite Ultimate attack not only does enormous damage to a random enemy, but heals herself and her friends.

  • Blunderbolt — Widdle fires a firebolt from her enormous Blunderbuss, damaging a random enemy.

  • Only As Slow As The Fastest Link — Champions affected by Widdle's Vampiric Gaze have a basic attack cooldown equal to the quickest of the affected Champions.


  • Strong and Steady — The effects of Widdle's abilities on Champions affected by Vampiric Gaze are increased by 50% on Champions with a STR or DEX score of 12 or higher.
  • Mind and Body — The effects of Widdle's abilities on Champions affected by Vampiric Gaze are increased by 50% on Champions with a INT or CON score of 12 or higher.
