COTLI: Superhero Spring 4 

Ominous Voiceover: "The situation has never been more dire — certainly not last year, nor the previous two years before that. It's bad. Like, really, really bad. And, once again, it's up to the Crusaders to stop--"

Deathpuddle: "BO-RING! Lets talk about me!"

Ominous Voiceover: "--I was getting to that--"

Deathpuddle: "News flash: nobody cares! About what you're saying, I mean. What they do care about, is who the next Crusader is — and it's me, Deathpuddle!"

Ominous Voiceover: "Aren't you just a ripoff of Dead--"

Deathpuddle: "Shush, you! Okay, so players, I'm coming to the game as part of Superhero Spring 4, the latest Tier 4 Event coming to Crusaders of the Lost Idols. I'll be joining the company of such copyright infringing Event Crusaders as The Bat Billionaire, The Metal Soldierette, Arachnobuddy, Foresight, and Thoonoose — and just in time for Endgame, to boot! The party stops and I take off on April 11th at noon PDT, so be sure to unlock me and get all my stuff before then!"

New Tier 4 Crusader: Deathpuddle

Deathpuddle: "Are you wondering how good I am? Of course you are. Spoiler alert: I am awesome at everything — assuming you want everything to die, that is.

I'm a killer of things. I get better at killing things with most of my upgrades. And, if you do somehow manage to get me killed, don't worry! Death is only temporary and I come back BETTER THAN EVER.

Seriously, I'm the best. Buy me!"

Crusaders Return

Deathpuddle: "I guess if you're already here you should maybe consider unlocking some of the other Crusaders who call themselves 'heroes' but really aren't all that special. Until April 9th you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their boring objectives. The Bat Billionaire, The Metal Soldierette, Arachnobuddy, Foresight, and Thoonoose are okay in a pinch, but they're no Deathpuddle!"

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Deathpuddle | Deathpuddle takes up a slot in your formation. Lucky you! Crusaders lose 5% of their maximum health each second, and every 15 seconds or so I get bored and randomly kill an adjacent Crusader. Reach area 600.

  • Death Totally Crushes Me | The Death takes up a spot in the formation. Death randomly kills two Crusaders in each area. Reach area 700.

  • Accelerated Healing | You can only take Deathpuddle and Healer Crusaders on this adventure! Reach area 750.

  • Enter the Soul Stone | Minions of Thoonoose occupy several slots in the formation. Thoonoose increases global DPS by 100% per Superhero Spring and Gardener of the Galaxy Crusader in the formation when he occupies the center slot. Reach area 800.

  • Secret Identity | 'Normal people' take up spaces in the formation. Only Superhero Crusaders, Nate, and Bush Whacker may be used. Reach area 850.


Help! Where’s the Loot?

Deathpuddle: "You can find loot in SUPERHERO CHESTS, of course! Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Superhero Spring Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or spend your sweet, sweet, money on 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. Is that all of it? Sheesh, that was a long paragraph.

You'll have until Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT to complete Superhero Spring 4! Do it! Do it now!"

March 7th
COTLI: Hermit's Premature Party 4 

There's no such thing as a party starting too early — at least, that's what The Washed Up Hermit believes. Why celebrate St. Patrick's day for just one day? Why not instead celebrate for a whole two weeks!?

Perhaps Hermit is excited because his latest guest, Ana Guinness, an internationally-renowned bartender, has really cranked the party up to 11. She's here to make sure every Crusader has the time of their lives, and with her millennia of experience to back up her skills, lets just say she knows how to keep a Tier 4 party going until the sun comes up a dozen times over.

Welcome to Hermit's Premature Party 4! Hermit's Premature Party 4 introduces Ana Guinness, and brings back Kyle the Party Bro, Larry the Leprechaun, Snickette the Sneaky, Squiggles the Clown, and Saint Patroika! The party ends on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Ana Guinness

News of your exploits has spread far and wide, from the crowded cities to the hidden taverns of fae kind. Ana Guinness, bartender extraordinaire, is ready to have some adventures of her own again, after millenia serving drinks to her fellow leprechauns.

Of course, she wouldn't be a leprechaun without an affinity for treasure, and if you follow the rainbow she guards, bosses you encounter will drop silver chests more often. Plus, gold will just rain from the monsters as they die before you from her gold find abilities.

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. Kyle the Party Bro, Larry the Leprechaun, Snickette the Sneaky, Squiggles the Clown, and Saint Patroika are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Ana Guinness | Ana Guinness takes up a slot in the formation If a boss drops a chest, you lose DPS for 30 seconds. Reach area 600.

  • Leprechaun Party | Leprechauns and Elf Crusaders only. Invisible leprechaun enemies spawn randomly and are invisible, only appearing once they reach your formation. Reach area 700.

  • My Girl Likes Treasure All The Time | A Greedy Coin takes up a slot in the formation. Whenever you pick up gold, the Greedy Coin disables DPS for several seconds. The Greedy Coin also deals damage over time to Clicker Crusaders. Reach area 750.

  • Beers to You | Area quest requirements are tripled. Additionally, special Beer Monsters spawn on occasion, which increase area quest progress by 10 upon death. Reach area 800.

  • The Emerald Isle | An emerald island takes up the center slot in the formation. For every 100 monsters you kill, one Crusader gets disabled for 30 seconds. Reach area 850.
