COTLI: Kaines' Dinner of Doom 4 

Doom. Dooooom! As the seasons turn from Autumn to Winter, Kaines' Dinner of Doom arrives once again!

Kaines' Dinner of Doom 4 introduces 43G1S, an all-new Tier 4 Robot Crusader, and brings back Chef Casey, Paul the Pilgrim, Petra the Pilgrim, RoboTurkey, and Momma Kaine!

New Tier 4 Crusader: 43G1S

43G1S (also known as 'Aegis') is a Tank Crusader, ready and willing to add their skills to your formation. They'll absorb the damage of the Crusaders in the column in front of them. They'll charge up while the formation isn't under attack, and unleash their wrath on all monsters on screen once the monsters reach the formation. Plus, they've got a way with monsters, causing them to slow down and not reach your formation as quickly.

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. Chef Casey, Paul the Pilgrim, Petra the Pilgrim, RoboTurkey, and Momma Kaine are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit 43G1S | 43G1S takes up a slot in the formation. They constantly summon robots to attack the Crusaders. Reach area 600.

  • Trim the Fat | The fatty formation slots have been trimmed. Additionally, Fat blob monsters spawn in each area, reducing Crusader DPS by 10% (multiplicatively) for each blob. These blobs can only be killed by projectiles and activated abilities. Reach area 700.

  • Assigned Seating | Several tables have taken up positions in the formation, disabling DPS and formation abilities of adjacent Crusaders who do not have the correct tag that matches the adjacent table. Every 75 areas, 2 of the tables will swap positions. Reach area 750.

  • Help's Day Off | Support Crusaders and Taskmasters cannot be used as you strive to reach area 800. Note: the reset ability is available on the Gold Panda when she's level 250.

  • Electro Dance Party | Only Robot and Healer Crusaders can be used. A beat-blasting robot takes up a spot in formation, randomly disabling the DPS and formation abilities of 2 adjacent Crusaders. Reach area 1000. Note: the reset the world ability is available on Khouri the Witch Doctor when he's level 250.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Thanksgiving 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'll have until Tuesday, November 27th at 12:00pm PST to complete Kaines' Dinner of Doom 4!

The Case of the Warrior in Japan 

Sasha, the Fierce Warrior, recently arrived back at the office after a trip to Japan. However, her movements and whereabouts remain a mystery which piqued the interest of Detective Kaine. His naturally inquisitive personality coupled with the secret nature of Sasha's trip are too much for Kaine to resist.

Our resident sleuth has started a journal documenting his investigation into her journey. Specifically, he has discovered that two keywords relating to her trip will unlock a jeweled chest within Crusaders of the Lost Idols.

You can follow along with Kaine's investigation as he tries to crack The Case of the Warrior in Japan by signing-up to the Idol Times newsletter. Each email will contain more clues from his notebook, of which the first pages his notes are available below.

If you can solve the mystery, you can enter the code into the in-game shop to earn a free jeweled chest. Please note the code is only valid on PC/Web, but you can link your account to mobile using these instructions.
