New Tier 7 Crusader: Kaala Rigel

Tags: Event, Support, Female, Good, Supernatural, Magical


Blackness.

Slowly, as your eyes adjust to the surroundings, you notice a faint hint of light seemingly floating above the ground.

Curious, you move closer to the light source, but are puzzled at the cold mist enveloping your legs, and as you're bopped on the head by a stick of some sort.

Two more light sources have joined the faint glow and they illuminate a snout full of teeth.

"No further please," a feminine voice says and then the light vanishes again.

The stick on your head starts to warm up and memories of your comrades standing beside you as you fling items at monsters stream through your head.

"Oooh, throwing things is fun," she says, and you feel the stick removed from your head. "I will join you."

The blackness immediately lightens and you see your new friend asleep on a cloud with a bundle of bamboo nearby. Time for another magical adventure.

New Tier 7 Crusader: Xochitl, La Llorona

Tags: Event, Female, Demon, Supernatural, Support, Gold, Evil


Rayna, Snickette and Morrigan were off hiking in a forest they'd found on the edge of a desert, exploring the interesting foliage and chatting away. The sun, still visible through the canopy, bathed the trees in a warm glow.

As they ventured further down the path, Rayna started getting an eerie feeling and glanced around, but all she noted was that the light seemed a little less bright. She watched as Snickette and Morrigan ran forward to investigate a stream that ran alongside the path and her feeling of wrongness grew stronger.

Right before Rayna's eyes, Snickette was suddenly dragged under the water. Morrigan tried to grab her friend's feet but Snickette was already gone. Rayna raced up to the water and pulled Morrigan behind her, readying a Fire Storm charge, which she directed at the spot where she could still see Snickette's cloak.

Nothing immediately happened. 5 heartbeats...10 heartbeats….20 heartbeats, and then the water erupted, revealing a ghostly figure.

"Give me the other child," it rasped. Rayna and Morrigan exchanged puzzled looks. The ghost pointed at Morrigan.

"Oi, I ain't no child ghostie," Morrigan said. "I'm a leprechaun, thank ye very much. And so's my friend you got there. Give her back!"

"I'm not a ghost, I'm Xochitl, La Llorona!" the ghost announced. Rayna and Morrigan looked at her blankly. The ghost hissed and tears started flowing down her cheeks. "Surely you must have heard of me?"

"Sorry dearie, but we've been lots of places and can't learn the myths of all of 'em," Morrigan replied. "Now, give back my friend!" Rayna readied another Fire Storm charge and gestured toward the ghost.

The ghost clenched her fists and the river splashed around her, but then she let out a sigh. With a flick of her wrist, a drenched Snickette was thrown from the river and started choking out water on the bank. "Fine, have her back. Just no more fire." She started to drift back down into the water.

Sucking in a breath of air, Snickette gasped "Treasure!" and Xochitl paused. More coughs racked her small frame, but Snickette managed to say, "the ghost had a lot of treasure down there."

Xochitl raised an eyebrow. "Those trinkets? They just happen to collect around me."

The three crusaders exchanged looks. Treasure was always handy. "Say, how about you come with us for a little while?" Rayna asked as she dismissed her Fire Storm. "I think you might have some fun."

Xochitl looked at the river and the tranquil forest. It had been getting a bit quiet lately, as the rumours had started to spread. "I'm in."

New Tier 7 Crusader: Erabelle, Tisseuse de Nuit

Tags: Event, Female, Support, Animal, Magical, Good


Flap...flap...flap.

Flap...flap...flap.

The hairs on the back of your neck rise as you enter the tent, a pungent smell filling your nostrils, something that smells like dust and dry earth. You look around for the source, hoping your eyes adjust to the dim lighting soon. You try to think back on what the sign outside the tent said, but you were running too fast to have read it properly.

Flap...flap...flap.

That odd sound happens again, closer this time. You turn around, trying to find the entrance to the tent again, thinking it might be worth facing the creatures outside rather than whatever is in here. And then you feel the hand on your back.

A small squeak slips out of your mouth, adventurer or no, and you turn back to whatever touched you. All you can see is wings.

  • Updated Dungeon FAQ - The Dungeon FAQ has been updated with questions and answers about how the Dungeon Points Missions work.

  • Difficulty Scaling - This season sees the return of the difficulty scaling, with a new difficulty 4 setting and highest area reached stats for each difficulty, so you know how far you've gotten on each difficulty.

    Introducing Matt Spacewalker

    For reaching level 8 on the free rewards track this season, or from the Dungeon Depot in future seasons, you can welcome your new marshmallow floaty friend Matt Spacewalker.

    Found floating somewhere in space, and telling you he's Human, Matt joins your team and refuses to remove his helmet. Matt will grow stronger the more you use him, converting XP into a permanent DPS buff, as well benefiting from his personal EP and gold missions that you've completed.

    When you want to use him, you can find him in seat 38 on the bench.

    You can gear up Matt from earning the various rewards on the reward tracks, and from spending Dungeon Coins on his chests in the Dungeon Depot. Matt's recipes are also available from the rewards track or the Dungeon Depot as well.

    We hope you enjoy Season 5 of the Dungeons! Good luck!

    Don't worry though: since you're now family, he'll look after you, providing some healing when he's in the formation, and he's got the connections to make the active abilities like Click-o-Rama, Savage Strikes et al last longer. Those are some good connections.

    But maybe you should still sleep with one eye open, just in case.
