COTLI: The Hidden Temple 5! 

Guarding a tomb for all time might sound like an eternity of peace and quiet, but eventually some random Crusader will show up, interrupting your slumber.

On yet another daring excursion, Montana James finds himself face-to-face with a colossal stone behemoth carved in the shape of a Tyrannosaurus, with massive glowing crystals sprouting from it's back.

Luckily for Montana, Ichtaca, the Keeper has grown bored of their role of tomb guardian, and is eager to head out on an adventure.

It's time for another Trek Through the Hidden Temple! The Hidden Temple 5 runs until Tuesday, June 2nd at 12PM PDT, introducing Ichtaca, the Keeper and bringing back Kebos, The Mummy, The Holy Guardian, Polly the Parrot, Danni the Daring Damsel, Serpent King Draco, and Montana James!


New Tier 5 Crusader: Ichtaca, the Keeper

Ichtaca, the Keeper is a Crusader who specializes in boosting the potency of Orc, Supernatural, and Support-tagged Crusaders.

Mesozoic Born and Riddles and Keys boost Supernatural and Support Crusaders respectively. If your formation has any Orc Crusaders, Earthen Family will increase the DPS of Crusaders by 50% per each Orc tag in the formation.

Other upgrades include Good Stone (Increases the DPS of all Crusaders by 75%), Eternal Guardian (For every 25 levels over and including 200, DPS is multiplied by 4x), and Crystalline Veins (Increase all Gold found by 100%).

Ichtaca's final ability is Extinction Level Event, which buffs Mesozoic Born and Riddles and Keys by 100%.


New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Ichtaca, the Keeper | Ichtaca, the Keeper takes up a slot in the formation. Spawn speed buffs and effects have no effect. Ichtaca, the Keeper steals 75% of your quest item drops. The Phase Skip talent doesn't apply.
    Reach area 400.

  • Second Best | Only the second Crusader on each bench seat is available.
    Reach area 450.

  • Cruise the Nile | Area quest requirements are increased by 10 fold. If you kill a monster that a Crusader has slowed, stunned or frozen, they drop 5 times as many quest items. Montana James starts in the formation and is the only Crusader who does DPS.
    Reach area 475.

  • Sahara Bound | Try to stay hydrated! Each area starts with a supply of 15 water bottles. Additional water bottles will drop from killed monsters at random. 1 water bottle is consumed every 5 seconds for each Crusader in the formation. If you run out of water, the formation wipes and goes back an area. Covetous camelcorns attack the formation and cannot be killed.
    Reach area 500.

  • Meteor Powered Portal | A goop monster takes up a spot in formation, moving every 100 areas. Crusaders adjacent to the goop have their formation abilities weakened. Additionally, every two minutes, a meteor hits your formation, removing a Crusader from formation and making them unusable for the next 15 minutes.
    Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Hidden Temple 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 Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of the Hidden Temple 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:


Players will have until Tuesday, June 2nd at 12:00PM PDT to complete The Hidden Temple 5.

Idle Champions: The Great Modron March 3 
Posted in Idle Champions.

A modron sighting is a rare occurrence outside Mechanus, the plane of true law.

At least, it's supposed to be a rare occurrence -- word has it that thousands of modrons have been seen on the march in the wilderness, and they are heading towards Waterdeep!

The Great Modron March 3 introduces Jaheira, the renown half-elf druid from Baldur's Gate, and brings back Qillek Ad Khollar and Evelyn Avalona Helvig Marthain. Players have until Monday, May 25th at 12PM Pacific to complete their event unlocks and objectives.

A Note Regarding Nintendo Switch

We're immensely excited to be on the Nintendo Switch, and chomping at the bit to share our corner of the Forgotten Realms with all of the new players that have joined us.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 related delays, we were unable to release our latest build on Switch in time to launch the Great Modron March event. We are genuinely sorry for the delay. We're working with our partners at Nintendo to minimize future delays.

As compensation for missing the event, we'll be crediting players with the following when we can release the next Switch build:
  • Unlocks for all three event Champions (Jaheira, Qillek, and Evelyn)
  • 3 Silver and 3 Gold Chests for each of those Champions.
  • 6 Time Gate pieces
You can follow us on our Twitter and Facebook to be the first to hear when the update (and Champion unlocks) are out on Switch.

Dungeons & Dragons Jaheira Baldur's Gate

Year 3 Champion: Jaheira

    Jaheira is a noble-born half-elf who was raised by an enclave of druids after her family was killed. Having gained an understanding of balance, she resolved to serve nature with the skills the druids taught her. She was recruited by the Harpers, where she met her late husband, Khalid. Jaheira knows life isn't black and white. She lives in the balance, as nature demands.

Jaheira is a DPS and Support Champion who channels her anger into powerful DPS buffs for herself and her allies. Specializations amplify the abilities based on allied classes and enemy types. When you want to add Jaheira to your formation, you can swap her with Jarlaxle (Slot 4).

For more information about Jaheira, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight: Jaheira dev blog!

Dungeons & Dragons Quill Qillek Ad Khollar Tom Hazel High Rollers

Year 2 Champion: Qillek Ad Khollar

    Qillek is timid, meek and nervous, being a comparably young character in the party and thrown into a world he doesn’t understand with no wing to fly him out of a bad situation. His charisma, wit, and superiority ripped away when flying through the Valley of the Storms, taking his left wing and arm away but introducing him to H’esper, who gave him dark visions to push him forward. Inside him is an envious amount of courage and a stable sense of logic when things get dire, which has led other party members to consider him their leader. He doesn’t agree with the idea, but he’s not ready to let his friends down.
Qillek is a Support Champion capable of buffing allies while also debuffing enemies. He casts Prayer of Healing to heal the formation and Bless to boost their damage. When you want to add Qillek to your formation, you can swap him with Calliope (Slot 5).

For more information about our latest Champion, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight: Qillek dev blog!

Dungeons & Dragons Evelyn Avalona Helvig Marthain Anna Prosser Acquisitions Incorporated

Year 1 Champion: Evelyn Marthain

    Caring, motherly, and endlessly optimistic, Evelyn has adventured across the realms as part of the Waffle Crew with Strix, Diath, and Paultin for many years. She's always first in battle, thanks to her flying boots, and will always take a hit to protect others. Short, yet tough, her devotion to Lathander has seen her through many perilous situations.
Evelyn is a powerful Tank and Support Champion. She buffs her allies with her Divine Prayer, Channel Divinity, Steadfast Might, and Conduit of the Light abilities. When you want to add Evelyn to your party, you can swap her with Asharra (Slot 6).

Year Three Variants

  • An Unkindness of Ravens — Jaheira starts in your formation in slot 3. She can't be moved. Ravens appear in each area; Whenever any raven dies, 1-2 more spawn. Ravens do not drop gold, nor do they count towards quest progress.
    Reach Area 75.

  • The Backwards Modron — Nordom the Modron joins the cause! Nordom takes up a spot in your formation and cannot be moved or removed. He is intent on helping Waterdeep with his lightning crossbow bolts, but instead of stunning the constructs, Nordom's lightning bolt accidentally empowers them!
    Reach Area 125.

  • Chickens in the Deep — In each area, an armored Abyssal Chicken spawns after 10 enemies. Abyssal Chickens drop no gold and do not count towards quest progress. Every 10 areas (from area 11 onward), the number of Abyssal Chickens that spawn per area is increased by 2.
    Reach Area 175.

Year Two Variants

  • Division — Every time a Modron is killed (including bosses) it splits into two copies of a Modron one level lower on the Modron hierarchy. You must kill all the split Modrons in boss Areas.
    Reach Area 75.

  • Machine Learning — The Modorns have decided to stop bashing their melee weapons against the Champions with no results. All melee Modrons now throw gears at Champions while at range. Champions struck by four gears are stunned for 15 seconds.
    Reach Area 125.

  • Messenger of Hope — Qillek has a dream that his god has granted him the power to overcome The Great Modron March. Qillek begins the adventure in the formation and cannot be moved. Only Champions within two slots of Qillek can deal any damage.
    Reach Area 175.

Year One Variants

  • The Neverending March — Every time a Modron is killed in non-boss areas it shuts down for five seconds and then comes back to life with full health.
    Reach Area 75.

  • (Hu)man vs. Machine — All human Champions get a buff called "The Human Spirit" which increases their damage by 5% in each area (stacking multiplicatively).
    Reach Area 125.

  • Charge Into Battle — Enemies move extremely fast and deal massive damage to everyone except Evelyn. Evelyn starts the adventure at level 1 and in the front slot of the formation.
    Reach Area 175.

Post your green thumb adventures and questions on the forum!

The event will run until Friday May 22nd at Noon PDT!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I find the seeds?
    Just keep whacking. The Holiday Item runes and pets will help attract them as well.

  • How do I grow plants?
    There are the planters outside the garden to grow flowers in. If you click on them, you can see the plant store. Each plant has a different cost and grow time to get you your event progress points. You start with 4 free planters.

  • Is it good to buy extra planters for growing the plants?
    If you have the seeds to spare and prefer to plant long-growing plants, then yes, it’s worth it.

  • How do I get the Decorator achievement?
    If you go into the gardening area, the store button ($) has a selection of garden decorating items, where you can find the planter styles and watering can. These items also cost seeds.

  • What are the possible seed combinations for Farmer MacDonald’s quest?
    You can choose seeds that grow either Energy or Gold, and then choose between 20, 15, 4, and 3 hours of growth time.

  • Why do my custom seeds cost Gold to plant?
    You created the combination, which is unlocked until they expire. Just like normal plants, they cost Gold for planting. We don't award a flat number of seeds, because not all players have the same amount of farm plots. This way, you get to choose how many you end up growing. :)
  • Why don’t my custom seeds last longer?
    Because they're OP! Enjoy them while they last. :)

  • How do I please the judges?
    Just keep growing plants. As your event progress increases, you will impress the judges more and more. You DO NOT need to place them in your garden if you don't wish to. The plants still count for progress.

  • Does the Timey-Wimey watch or Time Turner affect the judges?
    No, judges do not have quest cooldowns, so trinket effects that work for quests will not apply to them.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Growing plants worth points and completing the side quests. To get the points from your plants, you don't even need to place them in your garden! Just grow them!

  • 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 all the achievements available and how to get them?
    Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

COTLI: Gardeners of the Galaxy 5! 

Unrelenting alien plants return, and it's up to the Gardeners of the Galaxy to stop them. It's time for a new strategy. You've fought plants with fungus, but what about fighting plants with other plants?

Enter Drosenthes, a new Crusader bringing the power of photosynthesis to your formation!

Gardeners of the Galaxy 5 runs until Tuesday, May 12th at 12PM PDT, introducing Drosenthes and bringing back Mycall the Mushroom, Rex the Wrestler, Grandmora, Spaceking, Broot, and Robbie Raccoon!


New Tier 5 Crusader: Drosenthes

Growing... consuming... Drosenthes has germinated in the beyond and brings with it a unique symbiotic relationship for the Crusaders in your formation.

Slow Digestion grants a charge for every 5 monsters killed, stacking up to 10. Once per second, if any Crusader is below 50% health, Slow Digestion consumes one stack to heal all Crusaders for 50% of their total health. This pairs with Induced Bioluminescence, which damages human and animal Crusaders for 10% of their maximum health each second while at the same time increasing Global DPS for every human and animal Crusader, stacking multiplicatively.

Drostenthes offers unique utility to your formation:
  • Endless Hunger spawns an additional monsters based on the number of monsters killed and Drosenthes' equipment.
  • Photosynthesis increases DPS for every 25 levels over and including 200.
  • Patient Hunter increases the drop rate of Quest Items.
  • Cosmic Botany increases the DPS from Induced Bioluminescence for each Flora Crusader in the formation.
  • Entomophage helps your formation to grow, boosting Global DPS.
Life, death, rebirth. Devour or be devoured. The cycle of life is embodied in no other Crusader the way it is in Drosenthes.


New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Drosenthes | Drosenthes starts in the formation. Monsters spawn slower. Monsters are much tougher. Monsters move across the screen slower.
    Reach area 400.

  • Gardeners, Grow! | Talent effects are disabled. Only Gardeners of the Galaxy Crusaders can be used. Grandmora starts in the formation.
    Reach area 450.

  • Planet Bulk | Special bulk monsters spawn, and randomly disable one Crusader in your formation while the bulk monster is alive.
    Reach area 475.

  • Willowy Willows | Only Flora and Dragon Crusaders, plus Slot 1 Crusaders, can be used. Special Willow tree monsters spawn, with random effects.
    Reach area 500.

  • Hard Labor | Area difficulty increases rapidly. Crusaders take 10% of their max HP as damage for each monster killed in an area. Crusaders in the center column of the formation have their DPS and formation abilities disabled.
    Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Gardeners 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 Gardeners of the Galaxy Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of Gardeners of the Galaxy 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:


Players will have until Tuesday, May 12th at 12:00PM PDT to complete Gardeners of the Galaxy 5.

Idle Champions: The Running 3 
Posted in Idle Champions.

A young elven wizard is on a pilgrimage to the Grandfather Tree, and she has hired the Champions to escort her.

The wizard has foreseen an acorn falling from the tree - an extraordinary and truly rare occurrence - and she hopes to collect the holy relic to take to Silverymoon.

Yet as the party ventures forth, the very forest itself resists them, while elves from the Feywild and the Underdark seek to claim the acorn for themselves...

The Running 3 introduces Krydle, the charismatic half-elf rogue of the Heroes of Baldur's Gate, and brings back Spurt and Catti-brie. Players have until Monday, May 4th at 12PM Pacific to complete their event unlocks and objectives.

Dungeons & Dragons Krydle Jim Zub

Year 3 Champion: Krydle

    A Charismatic Leader, a dashing thief and poet, Krydle is the quintessential rogue with a heart of gold. A resident of Baldur's Gate, Krydle rejects the upper city political machinations of his estranged father Coran, but nevertheless has familiarity of the city's nobles and their schemes, as well those of the city's criminal network. Certainly a handy chap to know...

Krydle is a DPS and Support Champion. His legendary charm buffs other Champions based on their charisma, and his Thieves Cant ability amplifies this buff for each rogue in the party. When you want to add Krydle to your formation, you can swap him with Celeste (Slot 2).

For more information about Krydle, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight: Krydle dev blog!

Dungeons & Dragons Spurt Chris Perkins

Year 2 Champion: Spurt

    Spurt the Kobold Inventor is crafty and quick with his hands. He builds improvised weapons in the hope of gaining some new advantage in combat. Spurt never knew he would have such lasting appeal when he met a mighty group of adventurers in a cave, but here we are. Packed to the gills with his "awesome" inventions this clever kobold brings his 11-days of life experiences to the Champions, along with a really cool 'Centi-pult'!
Spurt is a Kobold Inventor and Support Champion. He buffs the formation through his Centipede Net, Wa-spiration, and Pack Tactics abilities. Spurt can also perform a Heroic Sacrifice to boost his buffs! When you want to add Spurt to your formation, you can swap him with Nayeli (Slot 3).

For more information about Spurt, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight: Spurt dev blog!

Dungeons & Dragons Catti-brie RA Salvatore

Year 1 Champion: Catti-brie

    "When I first laid eyes on Catti-brie, she had just punched a rather menacing fellow who was threatening to break every bone in my body. She hit the lout with such surprising force that he flopped to the floor like a sackful of mullet. Over the years, I’ve come to call her a friend. Underneath Catti-brie’s rough exterior lies a heart of gold. She cares deeply for her friends and will protect what she holds dear without fail. If she takes a shine to you, be sure to count your lucky pennies, because her enemies rarely fare well for long."
    ~Volothamp Geddarm
Catti-brie is a DPS and Support Champion. Her Powerful Draw and Critical Hit abilities help her deal damage at long range, while her Mark for Death weakens enemies. When you want to add Catti-brie to your formation, you can swap her with Minsc (Slot 7).

  • Alignment Askew — Champions are all affected by different debuffs based on the formation's alignment.

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 17th - 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 90 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.

COTLI: Nate's Candy Conundrum 5! 

Demonic sweets once again threaten the Crusaders, as they hop into yet-another parallel universe beset by evil Easter candy.

Who better to help fight evil candy than a dentist? Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist is here to help bring his unique blend of buffs to your formation -- welcome to Nate's Candy Conundrum 5!

This year's event runs until Tuesday, April 21st at 12PM PDT, introducing Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist and bringing back Bridget the Painter, Biff the Magic Rabbit, Baenarall, Angel of Hope, Sisaron the Dragon Sorceress, Alan the ArchAngel, and RoboRabbit!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist

Dental problem got you down? Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist is here to help! This orc may be a specialist when it comes to tusks, but tusks are just overgrown teeth, right? That's totally the same thing.

Dr Almquist increases Global DPS for each Evil Crusader with his Laughing Gas, and brings Ceiling Protectors to give an overall boost to Global DPS for the formation.

When Dr. Almquist performs a Wisdom Extraction, the first boss kills in an area will drop decayed teeth, which provide a stacking Global DPS increase that persists through adventures. Topical Numbing increases the chances for these teeth to drop.

With Tusk Sharpening Dr. Almquist increases DPS every 25 levels over and including area 200, and when there are Gold Fillings, Dr. Almquist increases Gold Find for each stack of Wisdom Extraction!

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist | Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist takes up a slot int he formation. There must be an equal number of Orc and non-Orc Crusaders in the formation (+/- 1).
    Reach area 400.

  • Chocolate Factory | A chocolate scientist occupies the center slot in the formation. Experimental chocolate monsters attack the formation.
    Reach area 450.

  • Easter Lilies | A lily collector occupies a slot in the formation. She gives monsters a chance to drop lilies when they are defeated. For every lily collected, she increases the DPS of all the Crusaders.
    Reach area 475.

  • Resurrection | A strange Easter Bunny occupies the center slot in the formation. The Easter Bunny spawns increasingly large waves of monsters in each area. Reach area 500.

  • Greet the Sunrise | Sun monsters attack the formation. When killed, they either buff your Gold or your DPS.
    Reach area 525.

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, 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 Superhero Spring Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of Nate's Candy Conundrum 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:

We've done this in response to players asking to see old premium pets they've missed out on, to help you fill out your pet collection. Snag those old-school pets you're missing out on!
