Idle Champions: The Great Modron March 6 
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 6 introduces Evandra, the Half-Elf Fighter from Deerstalker Picture's 1 for All, and brings back Gazrick Nomrad, a rogue modron separated from his fellow modrons, and Mehen, Dragonborn Fighter and adoptive father of Farideh and Havilar of Brimstone Angels. Players have until Monday, June 5th at 12PM Pacific to complete their The Great Modron March 6 unlocks and objectives.

New Champion: Evandra

Rough and tumble, and ready for action, Half-Elven Fighter Evandra brings the muscle. Evandra ran away from home when her father discovered that she had been training in strength and combat. He tried to force her into an arranged marriage with an elven nobleman, but Evandra rejected this on both principle and taste. She decided instead to become an adventurer, free from her father’s judgment.

Evandra is a Support, Tanking, and Gold Find Champion who's always willing to lend a hand as long as a fight is involved. She empowers all neutral champions, and brings the Awful Ones together, especially if the Witchlight Carnival is involved. Once unlocked, you can find this Half-Elf Fighter in Slot 5 opposite Calliope.

For more information on Evandra and her abilities, check out her Champion Spotlight!

Year Six Variants

Fight First, Ask Questions Later: Help Evandra stop the Modron March from crushing Waterdeep! Evandra starts in the formation (Slot 1). She can't be moved or removed. Only Neutral Champions (on the good/evil axis) can deal damage.
  • Reach Area 75.

  • Half-Elf, Pink, and the Bard: Stop the Modron March and Mechanical Guards from crushing Waterdeep. Evandra starts in the formation (Slot 1). She can't be moved or removed. If you have them (and they're not already on another adventure) Antrius and Nixie start unlocked and in the formation (Slot 5 & 6 respectively). 1-2 Mechanical Guards spawn with every wave. They don't drop gold, nor do they count towards quest progress. Construct enemies move at +300% speed and deal +300% damage.
  • Reach Area 125.

  • That's What Friends Are For: Stop the Modron March from crushing Waterdeep with Evandra's favorite heroes! Evandra starts in the formation (Slot 1). She can't be moved or removed. You may only use Champions that are female, non-binary, fighters, rangers, barbarians, paladins, or have a total ability score of 78 or less.
  • Reach Area 175.

  • Much more detail and information can be found in the game! Enjoy!

    Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

    Flowers In Bloom!

    The annual Grow-A-Thon has returned to the Commons! Whack the bushes and gather their bounty so that you can plant flowers and trees in the Event area to make yourself a gorgeous garden.

    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.

    Idle Champions: The Running 6 
    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 6 introduces Nixie, the Tiefling Sorcerer from Deerstalker Picture's 1 for All, and brings back Dungeon Master, the human wizard from the 1980s Dungeons & Dragons cartoon, as well as Shaka, the Tiefling Warlock from Rivals of Waterdeep. Players have until Monday, May 15th at 12PM Pacific to complete their The Running 6 unlocks and objectives.

    New Champion: Nixie

    Some folks never bother to ask how big the room is; they're always ready for a fireball. And Nixie is the quintessential firecracker, able to light up a room with her bright smile and her flaming hot spells!

    Nixie is a charismatic tiefling who grew up in a wealthy but oppressive household. There she was punished for using magic, despite her natural talent. In a rebellious move, she stole the family grimoire to teach herself dark sorcery, which resulted in the burning down of her family manor and all her family inside. Despite this tragedy, Nixie is now on a journey to enjoy her newfound magical freedom and find a new family.

    For more information on Nixie and his abilities, check out his Champion Spotlight!

    Year Six Variants

    What's a Spell Slot?: Quest for a mystical and rare acorn with Nixie! Nixie starts in the formation (Slot 8) and cannot be removed or swapped out. Any Champions you use with the DPS role must have a CHA of 17+.
  • Reach Area 75.

  • If the Trees are Thin, Let the Flames Begin!: Quest for a mystical and rare acorn while… Wait, who thought it was a good idea to bring Nixie into a forest? Nixie starts in the formation (Slot 8) and cannot be removed or swapped out. Nixie's Wild Magic Surge ability starts out unlocked. Nixie attacks faster as her base attack cooldown is reduced by 2 seconds. Nixie's base attacks sometimes accidentally light a random Champion on fire, damaging them for 20% of their max health.
  • Reach Area 125.

  • The Limitless Possibilities of Nixie: Quest for a mystical and rare acorn with Nixie's favorite heroes! Nixie starts in the formation (Slot 8) and cannot be removed or swapped out. You may only use Champions that are Tieflings, Chaotic, or have a total ability score of 78 or lower.
  • Reach Area 175.

  • More details and information can be found in the game! Enjoy!
