At last, Mme. Finklebottom's Revenge joins the rest of the campaign pack, with a slew of new objectives including the tier 1 and 2 11th-slot objectives. Beat them to unlock Arenvarr the Beheaded, and Bonus Idols for the campaign.

This update today sees the addition of eleven objectives for you to tackle on our most recent campaign Mme. Finklebottom's Revenge!

Remaining Tier 1 Objectives

  • Vertical Limits - Reach area 700 while avoiding frostbite.

  • Dead Snow - Reach area 750 while looking out for zombies, with a unique formation.

  • Everest - Reach area 800, if you can still breathe. This Tier 1 11th objective unlocks the Crusader Arenvarr, the Beheaded. Arenvarr's gear can be found in normal Silver and Jeweled chests.

Tier 2 Objectives

  • Call in the Eagles! Suffer your avian companions for another 200 areas, to reach area 850.

  • It's Getting Hot in Here The volcano is stepping up its game, as you escort it to area 900. Non-magical Crusaders adjacent to the volcano are disabled, and its starting to rain fire.

  • Vertical Limits - Reach area 900 while avoiding frostbite that builds up quicker than in Tier 1.

  • Dead Snow - Reach area 950 while avoiding the faster onslaught of zombies. Never fear though, the deathly chill empowers Zombie Winter, RoboQueen, and all Dragons, doubling the effects of their formation abilities.

  • Just So - Reach area 1000 with everything right where it ought to be. This Tier 2 11th objective unlocks Bonus Boss Idol drops for the Mme. Finklebottom's Revenge campaign and buffs all Bonus Boss Idol drops for all campaigns.


Enjoy!

COTLI: Crusader Skins Dev Blog 

Wrena’s Skin

While we share some of our upcoming plans for the game, we like to keep some things as surprises. We generally do not announce upcoming weekend promo Golden loot, and we felt this skin fell into the same category, though we appreciate that some players feel the skin is a more major change than we did. In hindsight, we should have handled the release of this skin in a more open fashion.

We also realize that players would have liked to hear from us sooner than the Q&A on Tuesday. We have been discussing the community's reaction to the skin internally and wanted to make sure our follow-up plans were solidified before we made any announcements.

Skins in General

A previous Q&A response had suggested that skins would not affect gameplay. We didn’t mean to imply that the decision had been finalized, and we’re sorry that people feel misled. Going forward, we expect most skins to have an effect on the game, whether via tags or something else entirely. We hope to keep these fair to all players.

Skins in the Challenge Shop

To start, in early August, we will be adding a new rotating item to the Challenge shop, exclusively for skins. As with Golden loot, a different skin will be offered every 2 weeks, as long as there are any you do not own. Initially it will contain 3 all-new skins, with more down the line.

Wrena’s Skin in the Challenge Shop

Until December 2019, Wrena's “The Foul” skin will remain exclusive to those who received it with the weekend chests. Then, it will be added to the pool of skins that can be offered in the Challenge shop.

Future Premium Skins

Future premium skins, except those sold as part of DLC packs, will follow the same model. They will become available in the Challenge shop 5 months after their initial sale.

Regarding Skin Tags

Generally, a Crusader’s new set of tags from an equipped skin count as their real tags (unlike tags applied by formation abilities.) This means they affect mission success, and can allow the use of these Crusaders in objectives where they would not otherwise be available. Note that Crusaders’ skins cannot be changed while they are on a mission.

Thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter.

COTLI: The Hidden Temple 4 

In ages long past, Kebos was a Goddess. As the world changed and her era came to an end, she was wrapped in ceremonial linens and preserved through mummification. It is the greatest honor her people could bestow upon their goddess, hoping to bring her a peaceful rest for all time.

Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever — not even death.

Her tomb unearthed and her rest interrupted, Kebos, The Mummy has arisen to join the Crusaders for their latest journey to The Hidden Temple...

The Hidden Temple 4 introduces Kebos, The Mummy and brings back Montana James, Serpent King Draco, Danni the Daring Damsel, Polly the Parrot, and The Holy Guardian. The trek comes to a conclusion on Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Kebos, The Mummy

Kebos is an ancient goddess, preserved through mummification. Now known as Kebos, The Mummy, this undead goddess brings her supernatural power to the formation in the form of massive DPS buffs (Show Them Some Teeth, Defend the Innocent). She grows stronger with each DPS Crusader in the formation (This is a Knife!), growing stronger still as you level her up (Better with Age) and earn Trinkets (Lady of the Dead). She is also a righteous DPS Crusader, growing more powerful for each Good Crusader in the formation (The Power of Good).

When the dead start to rise, it usually means the end of days is nigh — but in this case, the Crusaders may have instead found one of their strongest allies...

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. Montana James, Serpent King Draco, Danni the Daring Damsel, Polly the Parrot, and The Holy Guardian are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Kebos, the Mummy | Kebos, The Mummy takes up a slot in the formation. Only Undead and Good Crusaders can do DPS. Fossilized Crocodile monsters attack the formation; when killed, Kebos transforms another random Crusader into a crocodile, disabling their DPS and Formation Abilities. Reach area 600.

  • Uncanny Valley | Only Supernatural and Alien Crusaders may be used in the new formation. Two Alien ships also patrol the formation, wreaking havoc. Reach area 700.

  • Tomb of Kings | Only Royal and Healer Crusaders may be used. Reach area 750.

  • Pilgrimage | Only Good, DPS, or Undead Crusaders may be used. Every so often an Altar Monster appears, taking all your gold on hand and reducing Gold Find to 0 while you pay your respects. Reach area 800.

  • Secret Torch Society | Only Crusaders next to the Torchbearer do DPS. Another Torchbearer joins the formation every 150 areas. Reach area 850.


Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Hidden Temple 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, July 23rd, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT to complete The Hidden Temple 4!
