COTLI: Nate's Candy Conundrum 4 

Good mythical morning! Not again! Nate's devious antics have landed your Crusaders in yet another sugar-coated parallel world. Will you conquer it in time and recruit new friends? Find out as you face down the sweet fiends in Nate's Candy Conundrum 4!

The Nate's Candy Conundrum 4 event runs until Tuesday, April 30th at Noon PDT. For more information, check out the How to Play /FAQ in-game!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Bridget the Painter

That heavenly laughter you hear? That's the sound of your new friend Bridget the Painter as she makes friends with everyone in your formation and paints them with good cheer. Plus, she'll increase the DPS of the Crusaders in front of her based on how many Good Crusaders are in the formation.

Note: Bridget is a wizard with her paint brush and she knows how to use it.

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. Alan the Archangel, RoboRabbit, Baenarall, Angel of Hope, Sisaron the Dragon Sorceress and Biff the Magic Rabbit are ready and raring to go, once you unlock them!

Five New Tier 4 Objectives!

  • Recruit Bridget the Painter | Reach area 600 with angels leading the way. Bridget takes up a slot in the formation and only Angel Crusaders will be able to deal DPS.

  • Spring is Sprung | Reach area 700 while only using the Crusaders from Nate's Candy Conundrum.

  • Chicken Rabbits | Reach area 750 while the Chicken Rabbits attack. And no, those aren't rabbits that are chicken. These tough monsters take extra time to kill, but while they're alive Chocolate Egg monsters will spawn. Chocolate Eggs drop extra gold, and always count towards quest progress when you kill them.

  • What's that Smell? | Reach area 800 with spoiled eggs. Four eggs take up spots in the formation and start out by providing good buffs to your Crusaders, but as you go deeper their rotten natures are revealed.

  • Which Came First? | Reach area 850 while solving an age-old question. Chicken and Dino monsters spawn at random. Chickens make Eggs, which make dinos, which make eggs, which make chickens, forever and ever!

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Easter 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 have until Tuesday, April 30th, 2019 at 12:00PM Pacific to complete Nate's Candy Conundrum 4!

Grab Jelly Beans and Peeps every 20 hours for extra Easter progress and tokens! Plus, each of the turn-in station owners will have a bonus quest for you to complete, and you'll get to help the poor confused soul deal with Easter moving around.

You can help one character make a Chocolate Easter Egg, because who doesn't need more sugar? And you'll be able to make a custom hat! This year, you'll be able to get the hats for both genders for completing the quest for Hyatt the Hat Maker!

Finally, don't forget to help a bilby evict some invasive bunnies... a lot of them. It starts tomorrow, Saturday April 13th, at Noon Pacific Time to give you time to finish it.

FAQ

How do I participate in the Easter Egg Hunt?
Talk to the NPC under the Easter Egg Hunt banner to be teleported to the hunting zone.

What do I do in the Easter Egg Hunt zone?
Click on all the crates, barrels, rocks and bushes trying to find as many eggs as you can. There are only 20 eggs hidden in all the doodads.

How do I get a perfect score in the Easter Egg Hunt?
You need to collect all 20 eggs - basically not letting any of the other hunters find any.

I’m too slow at the Hunt. How can I be better?
The NPC with the wizard hat in the event area of the Commons sells boosts for Easter Tokens. Speed up your character and distract the other hunters with his wares. Also, travel in a circle, starting in the area closest to where everyone else is being distracted. And don't click on the searchable items themselves, click beside them. Clicking on the item causes you to walk slower.

When will the last quest unlock?
All quests will be unlocked by the 10th day of the event.

What contributes to my 100% progress?
Turning in the Unpainted Eggs, the Dye and the Wax as well as completing the Easter Egg Hunt and the quests for the folks in the event area.

Why do I want to ask friends for help?
It increases the amount of progress you get from doing a turn-in.

Do I have to do the achievements?
No. Completing the goals for the achievements is totally optional. You get either a large energy pack or a title for your character from them, no event progress.

Where can I see the achievements available and how to get them?
Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

When can I do the World Wide Easter Egg Hunt?
The World Wide Easter Egg Hunt starts on Good Friday - April 19th - and lasts for the rest of the event.

Where do I find World Wide Easter Egg Hunt Eggs?
Once the hunt has started, you can find eggs by clicking them in many of the zones in the world. Eggs are hidden behind rocks and trees and in tricky to access locations in normal zones, secret areas, and adventure zones all over the world. Not every area has an egg hidden in it. There are 75 eggs hidden throughout the world in total, but you'll need to be done most of the content in the game to find them all.

Idle Champions: Greengrass 2 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The start of spring is traditionally marked by a day of peace and rejoicing, featuring beautiful displays of flowers in celebration of Lathander, God of Spring and The Morninglord. Unfortunately for the town of Triboar on the Sword Coast, their celebrations are interrupted by the arrival of a githyanki raiding party... That's right, it's time for the Greengrass Y2 event!

Greengrass 2 runs until Monday, April 22nd, 2019 at 12:00pm PDT. Our latest Year Two Event introduces Aila, the Storm Herald Barbarian and Hero of Aerois. It also brings back Nrakk, the Githzerai Monk!

New Champion: Aila

    Aila was found and raised by a clan of wild elves, but never truly felt like she belonged. The tartan that was found with her is the only clue she has to her lost elven roots. Aila is stubborn and proud. Whenever anyone questions her past, she simply states 'I'm a delight!'. However, her smirk holds a lifetime of anger & questions that she's held close to her heart.
Aila is a path of the Storm Herald Barbarian, able to Tank and Support in formations. She wields the primal power of storms to damage, stun, and weaken enemies.

When you want to add Aila to your formation, you can swap her with Makos (Slot 9). For more information about our latest Champion, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight: Aila dev blog!

Returning Champion: Nrakk

    Having watched your party's progress for many years from Limbo, the Great Githzerai, Zaerith Menyar-Ag-Gith, has dispatched Nrakk to join your party on the Material Plane. Though his true motivations are unknown, Nrakk is a Way of the Kensei monk whose weapon of choice is a Naginata, making him a true force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. Reserved and aloof, Nrakk sometimes has a hard time interacting with those he sees as his lessers, but he nevertheless seems committed to the party's cause.
Nrakk is a methodical Githzerai DPS Champion. His methodical approach to DPS has him able to deal AoE damage, stun, and bonus damage to single targets. When you want to add Nrakk to your party, you can swap him with Delina or Hitch (Slot 8).

Year Two Variants

  • Pixie Machinations — A pixie riding an intellect devourer (like you do) arrives in every area. When it appears, a random Champion is stunned until the pixie is destroyed.

  • Starve Them Out — Only champions with INT 12 or less can be used. A giant intellect devourer with 200 armor-based HP arrives in each area. While it is alive, all other monsters are immune to damage. For each collective point of intellect BELOW 12 in your formation, the giant intellect devourer's armor is reduced by 10, to a minimum of 10 armor-based hits. For example. If you have Bruenor in your formation, his 8 INT (4 less than 12) will reduce the giant intellect devourer's health by 40 (4x10).

  • Ride the Storm — Aila starts in your formation. Aila's Storm Aura hits two enemies with each strike. Only enemies who are either Primed or Electrified by Aila can be damaged.

Year One Variants

  • Whispers — The Elder Brain slowly drives your Champions mad. Whenever a Champion lands a killing blow, they gain 5–10 stacks of a "Whispers" debuff. When they reach 100+ stacks, they are stunned for 15 seconds.

  • Flower Power — Sentient flower enemies spawn at random in non-boss areas. When killed, they imbue the champion who killed them with a random power, which can be good or bad.

  • Unlikely Allies — Two Githzerai monks take up slots in the formation. Each increases the DPS of Nrakk by 400% as long as he is adjacent to them, stacking multiplicatively.
