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.

What About Older Event Crusaders?

Previously-available Emo's New Moon Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of Emo's New Moon 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:


Players will have until Tuesday, November 5th at 12:00PM PST to complete Emo's New Moon 5. Good luck!
