COTLI: Emo's New Moon 6 

    It's close to midnight, and something Emo's lurking in the dark...
    Under full moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart!

Wait — this thriller-night has happened three times before! And it's back again tonight! Emo's New Moon has returned, bring ghosts and ghouls to the neighborhood schools where Crusaders fight for their lives from now until November 10th at noon Pacific!

Emo's New Moon 6 introduces Crooked Crow the latest Tier 6 Crusader and brings back The Evanescent, Trixie the Treater, Viktor the Vampire, Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul, Fright-o-Tron 4000, Wendy the Witch, and Jack O'Lantern!

New Tier 6 Crusader: Crooked Crow

Tags: event, healer, support, Animal


That’s not their real name, but no one knows what is, so this is the nickname they’ve acquired among the Crusaders. They seem to have different names in different regions!

Once you've recruited Crooked Crow you'll find them a friend to bugs, selling beneficial potions and charms alongside cursed objects and scavenged bodyparts. You'll find Crooked Crow in seat 30.

New Tier 6 Objectives

  • Recruit Crooked Crow |Crooked Crow takes up a slot in the formation. Monsters are faster and live longer. Wendy and Jack take up spots in formation and can't be moved. Note: This will require having cleared the objective To Infinity and Beyond on Ghostbeard's Greed to complete. Reach area 600.

  • Frightening Ghouls | Henry and Fright take up spots in formation and can't be moved. Only Undead Crusaders can join them Note: This will require having cleared the objective To Infinity and Beyond on Ghostbeard's Greed to complete. Reach area 650.

  • Bite Night | Viktor takes up a spot in the formation and can't be moved. Only Crusaders bitten by Viktor contribute DPS. Otherwise: Every 50 areas, all Crusaders have their DPS reduced by 75%, stacking multiplicatively, except Viktor. Note: This will require having cleared the objective To Infinity and Beyond on Ghostbeard's Greed to complete. Reach area 675.

  • Candy-mania | Trixie takes up a spot in the formation and can't be moved. Normal enemies drop less gold and Crusaders cost more to upgrade. Trick-or-treat monsters spawn randomly, and drop extra gold when killed. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Bullet Hell on Ready Player Two to complete. Reach area 700.

  • Soulful Escort | The Evanescent takes up a spot in the formation and can't be moved. Only Crusaders with 1000 base EP or higher can be used. After the first area, mosters are immune to damage until they are hit by a projectile. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Bullet Hell on Ready Player Two to complete. Reach area 725.

More info

You'll have until Tuesday, November 10th at 12:00 PM Pacific Time to complete Emo's New Moon 6!

For more info on previous Emo's New Moon Crusaders and objectives check out the Emo's New Moon 5 blog post.

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Carnival 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, Tier 5, and Tier 6 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.

  • 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!
