COTLI: Hermit's Premature Party 7! 

Hermit is always extra excited at this time of year, though this year even he is surprised at how quickly it came!

As St. Patrick's Day approaches, the Washed-Up Hermit triples his efforts to provide the latest Premature Party, drawing the attention of a being ancient and wise. Inviting himself to this year's soiree is Farmer Brown!

It's time for Hermit's Premature Party 7!

Hermit's Premature Party 7 runs until Wednesday, March 16th, introducing Farmer Brown and bringing back Gwendolyn, Daughter of Night, Tiernan, Ana Guinness, Saint Patrokia, Squiggles the Clown, Snickette the Sneaky, Kyle the Party Bro, and Larry the Leprechaun!

New Tier 7 Crusader: Farmer Brown

Tags: Event, Male, Human, Flora, Support, Gold, Magical, Angel


Farmer Brown was a very fine farmer. He watched over his fields, tending them with attentiveness, rotating fields every few years, rotating the crops in those fields, even reading them bedtime stories over the PA system. His vegetables were known as the best and biggest in the area and though other farmers asked for his secrets, they just couldn't implement them as well as he did.

That might have been because of the other secret to his success: magic!

Though one day, tragedy struck and Farmer Brown lost control of his combine, leading to an unfortunate accident. Thankfully, his beloved crops merged with his body and resurrected him. Though his community was a little wary around him now.

When you come across him in your travels and offer him the chance to join your motley crew, he accepts!

You can find Farmer Brown in seat 35 on the bench.

    New Tier 7 Crusader: Ligeia, the Lyrical Siren

    Tags: Event, Female, Supernatural, Support, Human, Animal


    Ahh, relaxation.

    The feel as the warm sand hugs your toes with each step you take. The pleasant warm embrace of the heat of the day. The sound and smell of the surf as the waves crash on the beach. The cool moisture on the glass of your favourite drink in your hand. The haunting red-orange glow of the water and the sinking sun. Paradise.

    Your ears perk as you catch the faint strains of music and you take off along the beach to find the source. Rounding the bend your first sight is wings, though a lot of your friends have wings so it's no longer a huge shock. Next you see the lyre in their hands, being expertly played though the song comes to an end as you watch.

    Shaking your head to clear a bit of fog (which might have come from your drink, but you're not certain) you finally notice the crowd gathered around the musician. She's definitely something special, luring a large chunk of resort guests to her impromptu concert. She starts to play again and the trance returns.

    Soon, the music is finally over, and you realize it's now really dark and you've sat down on the sand at some point. The crowd has also dispersed and it's just you and the musician now.

    "Sorry, didn't mean to overdo it," she says. "I just wanted you to stick around for a moment. I sensed something...different about you. You seem well traveled."

    "You could say that," you quip. "I've gotten around." You notice she's put the lyre back in its case, and the night is silent but for the waves.

    She follows your gaze. "No coercion this time. I've learned to prefer honest answers to my questions."

    "And what question would you ask?"

    "Can I join your travels? I'm looking for an adventure…"

    You hesitate a second and look at the ground. "Well, we've already got a lot of musicians in our group--" Your words are cut off as you feel the scaly texture of talons around your throat.

    "You were saying?" she asks with a cock of her head, and the talons relax a little.

    You swallow nervously. "What happened to no coercion?" She just smirks.

    You reach out your free hand. "Welcome aboard."

    Dungeons & Dragons Summer Spectacular

    Summer Spectacular

    Dungeons & Dragons Summer Spectacular Updates

    New Features

    Today's update brings an exciting new feature to Idle Champions to more platforms; Multi-Party Mode and Modron Automation Beta! We've been enjoying and implementing your feedback during the initial Beta period and we're expanding it out to more platforms! We're really excited to see how this shakes up the meta. We've been having so much fun in the office creating multiple parties.

    In case that wasn't enough stuff to get you excited, this week's update also includes the addition of three new gem familiars, a new Champion skin in each patron's shop, and some new DLC. More on those below!

    Dungeons & Dragons Summer Spectacular Multi-Part Mode

    Multi-Party Mode

    Multi-Party Mode is a system by which players can run multiple formations on multiple adventures at the same time, using a unique set of Champions and familiars on each one. You can unlock additional party slots in order to start using multiple parties at the same time, and catch up on variants or progress through the Patron Challenges faster!

    To unlock an additional party, tap the Multi-Party icon from the map screen while not actively running an adventure, and complete the requirements. To unlock your first party you must have two champions in each bench slot and complete the adventure Split the Party. Unlocking more party slots will require you to complete variants of Split the Party, as they become available.

    Each party progresses through its given adventure simultaneously. No two parties will be able to run the same base adventure or variant, but they can be running the same free play at the same time if you wish. Different parties can adventure under the banner of different patrons at the same time. We're excited to see how this shakes up the meta of certain dominant Champions and their bench slots.

    Dungeons & Dragons Summer Spectacular Modron Automation

    Modron Automation

    Modron Automation is a system through which you can do two things: automate certain tasks in the game for one of your adventuring parties and provide additional buffs to that party. Your first modron core is unlocked when you unlock your first additional adventuring party, and one additional core can be purchased for gems, for now.

    A Quick Primer on Modron Automation:


    To begin, assign a Modron Core to an adventuring party. Next, use components you find in Modron Component Chests to route Psychomorphic Energy from the Energy Generator into the Modron Automation Component (to unlock automating the party) and Modron Core Outputs (to buff the party). While the automation tile does not require a specific amount of power, using certain components to increase the power of the flow can provide larger buffs from the Modron Core Outputs.

      How do I enable the Automation Setup?


      In order to enable the "Setup Automation" button, you must route the Psychomorphic Energy from the Energy Generator to the Modron Automation Component using components you find in Modron Component Chests.

      What can be automated?

      You can currently automate three things:

      • Formation loading When enabled your Modron Core will automatically load a specific saved formation when you begin an adventure with the adventuring party it is assigned to. The saved formation chosen depends on the requirements of the adventure you start. Different saved formations can be chosen by using the selector at the bottom of the automation dialog.

      • Automatic resets When enabled your Modron Core will automatically reset and restart your adventure when you complete a chosen area. This only functions when you are on a free play adventure and for event free plays, it will only trigger if you have enough event currency to start the free play again. When combined with formation loading this can automate farming of gems, patron currencies, challenges, and more.

      • Automatic buffs When enabled, your Modron Core will automatically use certain potions upon reaching certain areas. This can allow you to increase the efficiency of your automatic runs, provided you have enough potions available.


      How do I get more Modron Components?


      You can get Modron Components from Modron Component Chests. Chests are awarded when you unlock a Modron Core or level up a Modron Core, and may also be purchased for Patron Currency in the Patron Shop.

      How do I upgrade components?


      Modron Components can be upgraded to the next rarity level by using Modron Component Pieces. You get pieces by breaking down components you don't want to keep. It takes more pieces to upgrade higher rarity components, but you also get more pieces for breaking down higher rarity components.

      How do I get more Modron Cores?


      An additional Modron Core is available for purchase on the Current Parties dialog by clicking the "Buy Additional Cores" button at the bottom. More cores will be added in the future.

      How do I unlock more areas in my Modron Core Grid?


      Modron Cores gain one xp every time the party they are assigned to completes an area. When they level up you get a Modron Component Chest and unlock a new region of the grid with new spaces and outputs and explore.

      My Modron is Overheating! How do I prevent that?


      Modron Cores will overheat if there is an infinite loop in your component layout. To avoid this, look for areas of red flow and rearrange your components so that the flow does not flow back into itself. While a Modron Core is overheating none of the outputs or automation tasks will function.

      Why did my Modron Core stop automating after a week when I left it for two weeks?


      Modron Cores can only automate for seven days before they need to be checked in on to refill their psychomorphic energy reserves. To prevent your Modron Core from pausing its automation, simply open up the core dialog once every seven days.




    Dungeons & Dragons Summer Spectacular Gem Familiars

    New Gem Familiars

    New Familiars have appeared in the Shop! We've added three new Familiars to the shop: Raven, Quasit, and Zorbo Familiars. We also adjusted the cost of our Mage Hand Familiar, which will now cost 250 gems. Players who have bought this familiar previously have been refunded 750 gems.

    Dungeons & Dragons Summer Spectacular New Patron Skins

    New Patron Skins

    Champions who find themselves in service of Mirt the Moneylender will have access to the Cyran Knight Warden Skin, those in the service of Vajra Safar may access the Baldur's Gate inspired Champion Jaheira Skin and those in the service of Strahd von Zarovich will have access the Silver Dragon Krond Skin through the Patron Shop.

    Dungeons & Dragons Summer Spectacular New DLC

    New DLC Packs

    Two new DLC Packs are now available!

    The Valkyrie Aila Skin & Feat Pack unlocks the Valkyrie Aila Skin, the ‘Storm Warden’ Epic Feat, and 7 Gold Aila Chests. It will also unlock the Aila Champion if you don't already have her.

    The Fluffy the Beholder Familiar Pack will unlock the Fluffy the Beholder Familiar, an assortment of Epic potions, and a Potion of Polish.


    Dungeons & Dragons Summer Spectacular Descent into Avernus, Part 5

    Descent into Avernus, Part 5

    This week's content update brings Descent into Avernus, Part 5. Traveling the wastelands of Avernus is never a simple or smooth journey, and the Champions find themselves without a guide. Check out the full Descent into Avernus, Part 5 blog post for details about the new adventures and variants.

    Feedback Wanted!

    These changes are scheduled to go live later today. We very much look forward to your feedback, so please let us know what you think in a Community Q&A or feedback post on the Idle Champions Subreddit, a post on the Steam forums, or on the Official Idle Champions Discord!

    COTLI: Hermit's Premature Party 5! 

    Hermit is always extra excited at this time of year, and 2020 is no different!

    As St. Patrick's Day approaches, the Washed-Up Hermit triples his efforts to provide the latest Premature Party, drawing the attention of a being ancient and wise. Inviting himself to this year's soiree is Tiernan, an angel responsible for the three realms and guiding lost souls. But this angel is no stranger to St. Patrick's Day -- in fact, he claims to have been the inspiration to Saint Patrick over 1500 years ago...

    Welcome to Hermit's Premature Party 5!

    This year's event runs until Tuesday, March 17th at 12PM PDT, introducing Tiernan and bringing back Ana Guinness, Saint Patroika, Squiggles the Clown, Snickette the Sneaky, Kyle the Party Bro, and Larry the Leprechaun!

    New Tier 5 Crusader: Tiernan

    The angel Tiernan has watched over the realms for ages, guiding souls and safeguarding the natural world.

    Tír na nÓg, Seed of the Earth, and Three Realms boost the damage potential of Crusaders. Druidic Patterns propagates formation abilities on Tiernan to all Crusaders adjacent to exactly three formation slots.

    Butterflies circle around Tiernan as part of Tryptych Display, which gives him his second and third Angel and Good tags.

    Gold-o-rama has never been better than with Tiernan in the formation. Lost Souls improves Group DPS while Gold-o-rama is active, and Nectar Scented offers a 10% chance that when a boss is first killed in an area, the Gold-o-rama cooldown may be instantly reset.

    New Tier 5 Objectives

    • Recruit Tiernan | Tiernan takes up a slot in the formation. Crusaders only do DPS when Gold-o-Rama is active.
      Quest Requirements x 7
      Reach area 400.

    • Seeing Green | The formation is now ramp-shaped. Crusaders at the end of or under the ramp have their DPS disabled.

    COTLI: Princess' Pool Party 5! 

    It's a new year -- time for a NEW PARTY! Or did the party even end last year? Who knows! All we know is that this year's party has a dragon!

    It's time for Princess' Pool Party 5!

    Princess' Pool Party 5 runs until Tuesday, January 21st at 12PM PST, introducing Jiaolong, the Guardian and bringing back Pilot Pam, Queen Siri, Bernard the Bartender, Princess Val the Mermaid, Shenna the Centaur, and Bruno the Unicorn!

    New Tier 5 Crusader: Jiaolong, the Guardian

    Jiaolong, the Guardian descends from the skies above to bring a powerful dragon DPS Crusader to your formations! His Laden Clouds ability increases his DPS based on a percentage of your Gold Find, while his Azure Skies, Razor Claws, and Nine Sons upgrades increase his DPS.

    Every 25 levels over and including 200, Jiaolong's DPS is multiplied by four thanks to his Son of Heaven ability. With River Guardian, Jiaolong marks four slots in the formation when he's the highest DPS in the formation, with each marked slot increasing the Global DPS boosting of Crusaders in those slots (these slots change each reset). This ability is further buffed by Eternal Waterfall, which buffs River Guardian by 50% for each Support Crusader that it affects.

    New Tier 5 Objectives

    • Recruit Jiaolong | Jiaolong takes up a slot in the formation. Two dragon buddies also come along. Jiaolong splashes Crusaders and disables them.

      Reach area 475.

    • Party Time | Only Crusaders who like to party can be used in the formation:
      • The Bush Whacker
      • Kyle the Party Bro
      • Bernard the Bartender
      • The Half-Blood Elf

    COTLI: Hermit's Premature Party 4 

    There's no such thing as a party starting too early — at least, that's what The Washed Up Hermit believes. Why celebrate St. Patrick's day for just one day? Why not instead celebrate for a whole two weeks!?

    Perhaps Hermit is excited because his latest guest, Ana Guinness, an internationally-renowned bartender, has really cranked the party up to 11. She's here to make sure every Crusader has the time of their lives, and with her millennia of experience to back up her skills, lets just say she knows how to keep a Tier 4 party going until the sun comes up a dozen times over.

    Welcome to Hermit's Premature Party 4! Hermit's Premature Party 4 introduces Ana Guinness, and brings back Kyle the Party Bro, Larry the Leprechaun, Snickette the Sneaky, Squiggles the Clown, and Saint Patroika! The party ends on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT!

    New Tier 4 Crusader: Ana Guinness

    News of your exploits has spread far and wide, from the crowded cities to the hidden taverns of fae kind. Ana Guinness, bartender extraordinaire, is ready to have some adventures of her own again, after millenia serving drinks to her fellow leprechauns.

    Of course, she wouldn't be a leprechaun without an affinity for treasure, and if you follow the rainbow she guards, bosses you encounter will drop silver chests more often. Plus, gold will just rain from the monsters as they die before you from her gold find abilities.

    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. Kyle the Party Bro, Larry the Leprechaun, Snickette the Sneaky, Squiggles the Clown, and Saint Patroika are all once again available to unlock!

    New Tier 4 Objectives

    • Recruit Ana Guinness | Ana Guinness takes up a slot in the formation If a boss drops a chest, you lose DPS for 30 seconds. Reach area 600.

    • Leprechaun Party | Leprechauns and Elf Crusaders only. Invisible leprechaun enemies spawn randomly and are invisible, only appearing once they reach your formation. Reach area 700.

    • My Girl Likes Treasure All The Time | A Greedy Coin takes up a slot in the formation. Whenever you pick up gold, the Greedy Coin disables DPS for several seconds. The Greedy Coin also deals damage over time to Clicker Crusaders. Reach area 750.

    • Beers to You | Area quest requirements are tripled. Additionally, special Beer Monsters spawn on occasion, which increase area quest progress by 10 upon death. Reach area 800.

    • The Emerald Isle | An emerald island takes up the center slot in the formation. For every 100 monsters you kill, one Crusader gets disabled for 30 seconds. Reach area 850.

    COTLI: Princess' Pool Party 4 

    The best way to bring in a new year is always with a POOL PARTY! Lucky for us, Princess' annual pool party always brings the fun, and she's kicking off 2019 by inviting brand new Tier 4 Objectives and one of her best new friends: Bruno the Unicorn!

    Princess' Pool Party 4 introduces Bruno the Unicorn, and brings back Pilot Pam, Queen Siri, Bernard the Bartender, Princess Val the Mermaid, and Shenna the Centaur! The party officially ends on January 22, 2019 at 12:00PM PT, so be sure to unlock and gear up Bruno and the others before then!

    New Tier 4 Crusader: Bruno the Unicorn

    In a world... with dark elves, robots, cyborgs, dragons, centaurs, and Sasquatch — where is unicorn? Well, wonder no more, as Bruno the Unicorn joins the Crusaders for their adventures!

    As he trots out from the shadows of myth, Bruno the Unicorn brings with him the power to heal his fellow Crusaders and to increase Gold Find. He's also there to give support to his fellow supernatural friends, benefiting from formations built with Dragons and Dwarfs.

    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. Pilot Pam, Queen Siri, Bernard the Bartender, Princess Val the Mermaid, and Shenna the Centaur are all once again available to unlock!

    New Tier 4 Objectives

    • Recruit Bruno the Unicorn | Bruno takes up a slot in the formation. Crusaders are damaged every second they are in an Area, and Gold Find is occasionally reduced to 0. Reach area 600.

    • The Princess' Party | Every 75 areas, a Princess shows up and takes up a slot in the formation. Princesses reduce the DPS of adjacent Crusaders by 20%, stacking additively. Reach area 700.

    COTLI: Hermit's Premature Party 2018 

    St. Patrick isn't the only saint on display in this year's Hermit's Premature Party event! Saint Patrokia, the Orc Nun, can be recruited as this year's new tier 3 event Crusader, after which her blessings will aid your party in conquering the four additional tier 3 objectives newly available. If you're not there yet, there are still four Crusaders from previous years to recruit, and six other objectives to challenge you. Good luck!

    Hermit's Premature Party 2018 event runs until Tuesday, March 13th at Noon PDT. For more information, check out the How to Play /FAQ in-game!

    New Tier 3 Crusader: Saint Patrokia

    Saint Patrokia is a nun-like Orcish support Crusader who blesses nearby Crusaders and is empowered by other supernatural companions.

    Crusaders Return

    If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Larry the Leprechaun and Kyle the Party Bro by completing the respective Tier One objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Snickette the Sneaky and Squiggles the Clown, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

    Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

    • Recruit Saint Patrokia | Saint Patrokia takes up the central slot in the formation. She debuffs ("Beneath Me") your party's DPS by 50% (multiplicative) for each non Supernatural/Orc Crusader in the formation. Reach area 500.

    • Quiet Devotion | Every 10 seconds, the DPS of your highest DPS Crusader is reduced by 100% for 30 seconds (a "Be Quiet!" debuff). Reach area 600.

    • Orc-sitting | Two drunken Orc Peasants, celebrating St. Patrick's Day, take up slots in the formation. Every 10 seconds they randomly apply a "Selfless" debuff to adjacent Crusaders who offers to help make sure they're going to get home alright. The debuff lasts for 20 seconds and disables the DPS of the affected Crusader. The Orcs move around the formation every 100 areas. Reach area 650.

    • Saintly Glory | Each monster killed grants a random Crusader one stack of "Glory," which increases their DPS by 20% (stacking additively). When a Crusader reaches 5 stacks, their Glory stack is replaced by an "Overcome by Glory" debuff, which disabled their DPS and Formation Abilities; during this time they cannot gain more Glory stacks. Glory stacks do not expire, but "Overcome by Glory" expires after 15 seconds, at which point they can earn more Glory. Reach area 700.

    • The Orcish Pantheon | An Orc god takes up the central slot in the formation and increases the damage of Orc Crusaders by 400%. Only Orc and Supernatural Crusaders may be used. Reach area 750.
