COTLI: Superhero Spring 5! 

No matter how perilous the world becomes, hope still remains.

An ageless paragon of hope has arrived to save the day! Adina the Wonderful embodies power and grace, and she's here to lead the Hero League to victory...

Superhero Spring 5 has begun!

This year's event runs until Wednesday, April 8th at 12PM PDT, introducing Adina the Wonderful and bringing back Deathpuddle, Thoonoose, Foresight, Arachnobuddy, Metal Soldierette, and Bat Billionaire!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Adina the Wonderful

Power. Grace. Wonder. Words are not quite enough to describe the latest Crusader, Adina the Wonderful.

As a Paragon, Adina increases Global DPS for each Superhero Crusader in the formation. Justice for All allows Adina to make heroes of the Crusaders around her, giving the Superhero tag to adjacent Crusaders in the formation. Her Hero League ability causes the Self-DPS formation abilities of Crusaders in her column to apply to all other Crusaders in the column at 10% effectiveness (note: this cannot be propogated or mimicked).

With Ageless Life Adina's DPS is multiplied 4x for every 25 levels over (and including) 200. Her Growing Compassion and Be True abilities increase Global DPS. And finally, as an Expert Commander Adina allows the formation abilities of Crusaders in her column to be active regardless of their requirements (note: this cannot be propogated).

An ageless hero that embodies wonder, power, and grace, Adina the Wonderful is sure to lead any heroic formation to victory!

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Adina the Wonderful | Adina the Wonderful takes up a slot in the formation. Disables the DPS and upgrades of the Crusaders in the columns in front of and behind her.
    Reach area 400.

  • The Fates | The three aspects of fate occupy slots in the formation. They randomly spawn special fate monsters to attack you. All non-boss areas are changed to kill 3 fates.
    Reach area 450.

  • Leaving the Island | Duel your way past all the Goddesses to win the right to leave the island.
    Reach area 475.

  • The Club of Justice | Only Superhero Spring Crusaders, and Crusaders adjacent to at least 3 Superhero Spring Crusaders, can deal DPS.
    Reach area 500.

  • Living Through the Ages | Area 1 to 100: Only base 20 and Tier 1 Crusaders can be used. Area 101 to 200: Only Tier 2 Crusaders can be used. Area 201 to 300: Only Tier 3 Crusaders can be used. Area 301 to 400: Only Tier 4 Crusaders can be used. Area 401 onwards: Only Tier 5 Crusaders can be used. On death, normal monsters spawn more monsters with special powers.
    Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Superhero 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 Superhero Spring 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:


Players will have until Wednesday, April 8th at 12:00PM PDT to complete Superhero Spring 5.

COTLI: Superhero Spring 4 

Ominous Voiceover: "The situation has never been more dire — certainly not last year, nor the previous two years before that. It's bad. Like, really, really bad. And, once again, it's up to the Crusaders to stop--"

Deathpuddle: "BO-RING! Lets talk about me!"

Ominous Voiceover: "--I was getting to that--"

Deathpuddle: "News flash: nobody cares! About what you're saying, I mean. What they do care about, is who the next Crusader is — and it's me, Deathpuddle!"

Ominous Voiceover: "Aren't you just a ripoff of Dead--"

Deathpuddle: "Shush, you! Okay, so players, I'm coming to the game as part of Superhero Spring 4, the latest Tier 4 Event coming to Crusaders of the Lost Idols. I'll be joining the company of such copyright infringing Event Crusaders as The Bat Billionaire, The Metal Soldierette, Arachnobuddy, Foresight, and Thoonoose — and just in time for Endgame, to boot! The party stops and I take off on April 11th at noon PDT, so be sure to unlock me and get all my stuff before then!"

New Tier 4 Crusader: Deathpuddle

Deathpuddle: "Are you wondering how good I am? Of course you are. Spoiler alert: I am awesome at everything — assuming you want everything to die, that is.

I'm a killer of things. I get better at killing things with most of my upgrades. And, if you do somehow manage to get me killed, don't worry! Death is only temporary and I come back BETTER THAN EVER.

Seriously, I'm the best. Buy me!"

Crusaders Return

Deathpuddle: "I guess if you're already here you should maybe consider unlocking some of the other Crusaders who call themselves 'heroes' but really aren't all that special. Until April 9th you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their boring objectives. The Bat Billionaire, The Metal Soldierette, Arachnobuddy, Foresight, and Thoonoose are okay in a pinch, but they're no Deathpuddle!"

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Deathpuddle | Deathpuddle takes up a slot in your formation. Lucky you! Crusaders lose 5% of their maximum health each second, and every 15 seconds or so I get bored and randomly kill an adjacent Crusader. Reach area 600.

  • Death Totally Crushes Me | The Death takes up a spot in the formation. Death randomly kills two Crusaders in each area. Reach area 700.

  • Accelerated Healing | You can only take Deathpuddle and Healer Crusaders on this adventure! Reach area 750.

  • Enter the Soul Stone | Minions of Thoonoose occupy several slots in the formation. Thoonoose increases global DPS by 100% per Superhero Spring and Gardener of the Galaxy Crusader in the formation when he occupies the center slot. Reach area 800.

  • Secret Identity | 'Normal people' take up spaces in the formation. Only Superhero Crusaders, Nate, and Bush Whacker may be used. Reach area 850.


Help! Where’s the Loot?

Deathpuddle: "You can find loot in SUPERHERO CHESTS, of course! Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Superhero Spring Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or spend your sweet, sweet, money on 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. Is that all of it? Sheesh, that was a long paragraph.

You'll have until Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT to complete Superhero Spring 4! Do it! Do it now!"

COTLI: Superhero Spring 2018 

The world is once again in peril - but it has never been as imperiled as this! Perhaps you'll be able to find a new, purple titanic ally to help you for this mighty battle? Superheroes, assemble!

Superhero Spring 2018 runs until Tuesday, April 24th at Noon PDT. For more information, check out the How to Play / FAQ in-game!

New Tier 3 Crusader: Thoonoose

Thoonoose is no stranger to doing damage with his enormous golden gauntlet. He is an almost titanic damage dealer, and a badass blue-clad purple alien to boot!

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Metal Soldierette and Bat Billionaire by completing the respective Tier One objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Arachno Buddy and Foresight, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit Thoonoose | Thoonoose takes up a slot in the formation. Every 15 seconds he snaps his fingers, killing a random Crusader. Reach area 500.

  • Fine, I'll Do It Myself | Only Thoonoose and alien Crusaders may be used. Thoonoose's DPS is increased by 5% every area, stacking multiplicatively. Crusaders adjacent to Thoonoose increase monster spawn speed by 25% each. Reach area 600.

  • Balanced | Half of the bench slots are disabled. Reach area 650.

  • Battle for Crusadia | Alien monsters attack the formation in addition to normal enemies. Occasionally Thoonoose's evil brother, Thinoose, attacks as well. Whenever Thinoose is spawned, all the Alien monsters move much, much faster and deal far, far more damage. Reach area 700.

  • After Credits Scene | Rex the Wrestler takes up a slot in the formation. He moves around every 25 areas and buffs global DPS by 100% for each Champion from the Gardeners of the Galaxy event in the formation. Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Superhero Spring Jeweled 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 the Tier 2 and 3 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusader. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop.

You'll have until Tuesday, April 24th at Noon PDT to complete Superhero Spring 2018!

Superhero Spring 2017 

The world is in peril again! It seems to happen every year now. It's time for the Crusaders to pull on the spandex, give their friends or family lame excuses for leaving them suddenly, and save the world.

Super Hero Spring event runs from today through to April 3rd at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Bat Billionaire and Metal Soldierette to your roster.

Of course, as this is a 2017 update of the original event you can also collect two new Crusaders: Arachnobuddy and Foresight.

New Tier Two Crusader: Arachnobuddy.

The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Arachnobuddy, a superhero imbued with superhuman spider-inspired powers. His alter ego teenager Paul Potter lives with his uncle Matt after a luchador savagely killed his aunt, Gwen.

At level 50, his ability Web Blast shoots out a web projectile at a random enemy every five seconds dealing 200% of Global DPS. Collect equipment for Arachnobuddy to increase the number of webs he fires.

At level 400, Arachnobuddy unlocks Stick Webbing where Web Blasts stuns affected targets for one second (but doesn't stack if multiple blasts hit the same target).

New Tier Two Crusader: Foresight.

Foresight is a new lifeform created by melding the power of an Unlimited Stone, one of the greatest sources of power in the Crusader universe, and an indestructible material called Reverbrium.

At level 100, Foresight unlocks Playing Favorites, an ability that heals individual targets for 20% of max health per second. It heals humans if more humans are adjacent to Foresight than non-humans, or it will heal non-humans if more non-humans are adjacent to Foresight. In the end, if there are an equal number of humans and non-humans it doesn't heal anyone. At level 400 Foresight's Supernatural ability increases Supernatural Crusaders' DPS +50%.

After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Arachnobuddy and Foresight, there are three more objectives to conquer (after a few more drinks, naturally).

New Tier Two Objective: The Revengers.

In The Revengers players can only choose Supernatural or Superhero Crusaders, plus Bush Whacker and Nate. Then they must reach area 400.

New Tier Two Objective: Sidekicks.

In the objective, Sidekicks three bumbling sidekicks take up slots in your formation, each with a unique debuff on adjacent Crusaders as they get in the way of our heroes with their misguided attempts to help (e.g. reduce DPS, reduce Gold Find, and disable formation abilities).

New Tier Two Objective: Super Villains.

The final new Tier Two objective is Super Villains. The Crusaders' arch nemeses spawn and attack the formation. Each super villain has different annoying abilities that'll make reaching area 500 a real challenge!

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Superhero Spring Jeweled Chests. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

You'll have until April 3rd at Noon PDT to complete the event. Cheers!
