  • More Awesome Rewards! - Both the free and the Benefactor's pass route have had their reward amounts tweaked considerably, with more crafting materials, cooler buffs and drops for the Rune System to help your progress and start using those 5th slot runes!

  • Quality of Life Changes! - We've added some much-requested quality of life changes to the Dungeons, including seeing how many weekly objectives you have left on the objective selection screen!

  • Season 2 Skins Now Available! - If you missed getting these skins during the previous season, you can now purchase them for Dungeon Coins!

  • 5th Slot Runes Debut

    Season 3 also marks the debut of the 5th slot runes. Throughout the season, we'll be releasing the 5th slot runes in batches, starting with the base 20 Crusaders.

    The 5th slot runes unlock awesome power for the Crusaders, with most of them buffing existing upgrades. The higher the level, the better the bonus!

    The 5th slot on a Crusader is unlocked using the Arcane Geode, found from Dungeon rewards and through a weekly mission in the mission system.

    COTLI: The Nate Before Christmas 6! 

      O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how angry are thy branches...!
      O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how much you embody the rage of nature and bring the wrath of the elements down upon us all!

    Once again The Nate Before Christmas blesses our doors, and this year we are visited by a princess of snow: Odile, Snowflake Defender!

    The Nate Before Christmas 6 runs until Tuesday, December 29th at 12PM PST, introducing Odile, Snowflake Defender and bringing back Frosty the Snowman, RoboSanta, The Dark Helper, RoboRudolph, Xander the Xmas Dragon, Wrena the Fair and Kris, the Enraged Elemental!

    New Tier 6 Crusader: Odile, Snowflake Defender

    Tags: Event, Magical, Female, Healer, Supernatural, Gold, Good


    In the Realm of Berwin, Odile was the first-born daughter of Queen Odessa and King Ambros. The Realm of Berwin, also known as the Domain of Winter, was one of the four realms dedicated to fighting the dark spirits of the otherrealm and protecting the spirits of the seasons. Not only were the royal family of Berwin already strong ice magic users, but when Odile was born, the Spirit of Winter itself appeared and bestowed some of its magic upon her.

    As she grew up, Odile began training in secret with her mother, but it soon became apparent that her powers were much stronger than Odessa's, even in one so young. Whispers of Odile's power made their way to the otherrealm where the Spirit of Destruction, Glut, had been resting for many years. Glut sent minions out to investigate the rumours surrounding Odile. One small shadow spirit succeeded and brought the news to its master.

    Glut attacked the realm of Berwin, laying waste to the area as he made his way to capture Odile, bringing an air of blight to the once pristine world. Odessa and Ambros managed to hold off the first wave of dark spirits, but Glut had grown in power in its time away. To buy some time and save their people, the royals decided to send Odile away, wiping her memory and transporting her to Earth. Craving the power within, Glut abandoned its siege and followed Odile's trail through the realms though it would take time to find her.

    Odile, now living with her new glamoured family as Odette, continued to grow up and lead a normal, mundane life. But Glut's minions eventually stumbled into the right realm and found the missing princess, causing the Spirit of Winter to break the seal her parents had placed. Odile remembered her powers, her family, and with her memories regained, she stepped into her role of Snowflake Defender, ready to help the Crusaders on their quest.

    New Tier 6 Objectives

    • Recruit Odile, Snowflake Defender |Odile takes up a slot in the formation. Frosty the Snowman and RoboSanta take up spots in the formation and can't be moved.

Targeted Crusaders will have their DPS reduced to 0 while the businessman who targeted them is alive and for 10 seconds afterwards.

    • Guardians Risen | Xander the Xmas Dragon takes up a slot in the formation and can't be moved. A fiery escort takes up a slot in the formation and changes positions every 100 areas. Fireball monsters spawn randomly and provide either a debuff or buff when killed. These stacks persist until you reset the world.

  • Introducing the Rune System

    Epic gear being elusive? Or Legendary gear taking a while to level up again? Runes are here to give you a power kick and make some changes to your play!

    The Runes

    There are five types of Runes available to slot on your Crusaders: Fire, Water, Air, Earth and Soul. What power each unlocks depends on the Crusader you're assigning the rune to, otherwise each type of rune is identical.

    You can level up runes by dragging a rune to the Merge box in the rune inventory, or by dragging a rune of the same level and shape onto a rune slot on the Crusader that already has a rune assigned to it. Merging runes to reach level 6 and higher will cost 1 Legendary Catalyst each time in addition to the two runes of the same level and shape.



    Rune Screen

    The Rune screen is where all the magic happens. You can choose between viewing the list of Crusaders in the Formation, Crusaders who have Runes Slotted, and All Crusaders. Clicking on a Crusader from the list will bring up their personal slots and the list of their rune bonuses.

    You can unlock the slots on a Crusader in any order. The first slot is free, and the rest will cost Legendary Catalysts, increasing in cost as you unlock more slots. Once a slot is unlocked, you can slot in a Rune and start seeing the benefits of the bonus.

    Crusaders' Runes provide different effects based on their role, such as Gold Find for Gold Finders Crusaders. That applies to the first 3 slots.

    Slot 4 on every Crusader provides them with a mission system boost. There are 4 possible effects that slot will unlock:
    • Increase the Gold won from Gold Missions.
    • Increase the EP won from EP Missions.
    • Chance that the rewards from the mission can be doubled.
    • Reduce the duration of missions longer than 2 hours in original duration.
    Slot 5 on every Crusader will have a buff unique to them, which we will be adding over time.

    Once assigned to a slot on a Crusader, you normally cannot remove a Rune, just upgrade it. There is a rare item, Rune Solvent, that will allow you to remove all slotted Runes from a particular Crusader. You can find Rune Solvents from a mission in the mission system.



    How to Acquire Runes

    You'll be able to get Runes by opening Runic chests, and specific Rune types of certain levels as rewards from some season milestones. You can also get the Runic chests from the following locations:
    • The real money Chest Store, from the Runic chest tab.
    • Up to 2 chests per week from the Ruby Exchange.
    • Up to 3 chests per week from the Challenge Token store.
    • Up to 3 chests per week from the Dungeon Depot.
    • Up to 2 chests per week from the Mission System.
    • Season reward milestones.


    Have fun with the new season and the new Rune System!

    COTLI: Season 2 And Rune System Teaser! 

    Get ready to collect those season rewards! Here's a sneak peek at Season 2 of the Dungeons, and the all-new power system, Runes!

    Season 2: The Clocktower

    Season 2 is coming and with it we've made some changes to the season and the Dungeons!

    First, we've changed up some of the formations. Here's a sneak peek at the new formation for Playing it Old School.



    Plus we've got a whole slew of new rewards from both passes, including a chance to get some Runes to help you out with the all-new Rune System!

    Rune System

    Looking to power up your Crusaders even more? Runes are here to help you out!

    Each Crusader has room to slot 5 runes, on the all-new Rune screen. The first slot on a Crusader is unlocked for free, and the additional slots will cost Legendary Catalysts to unlock. Crusaders' runes provide different effects based on their role, such as Gold Find for Gold Finders Crusaders. Each Crusader also has a rune that will effect the outcome of missions, from extra EP to doubling the rewards of the mission they're sent on and more!

    But that's not all: every Crusader will have a unique effect that can be unlocked by slotting the appropriately shaped Rune in their fifth slot! We'll be debuting with unique powers for a handful of Crusaders and update the other Crusaders in chunks every so often.

    Every rune can also be leveled up, to get more power, with a max level of 15. You need to combine two runes of the same shape and level to get the next level of rune, so combining two level 2 runes would produce a level 3 rune. Higher levels of runes will also take Legendary Catalysts to craft in addition to the runes.

    How to Acquire Runes

    As noted above, Runes will be rewarded from both the free and the paid pass of the Season 2 rewards. You'll also be able to get them from weekly purchases of Rune Chests from the Ruby Store, Challenge Token Store, and Dungeon Shop, in addition to real money purchases in the Chest Shop.

    We'll also be adding a few missions to the mission system that can award Runes.

    So... release date?

    We anticipate season 2 and the Rune System being released sometime in the next week or so, but as always we want to note that things could change unexpectedly, even the design itself. We'll keep you updated!

    To celebrate the release being so soon, from now until Tuesday, October 20th, 2020 @ Noon Pacific Time, everyone gets a Wonderful Weekend of Idols buff! Reload the game to get the buff!
