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!

Hermit's Premature Party 2017 

Suggesting the Washed-up Hermit likes a tipple, is like saying there was a small snafu for Best Picture at the Oscars this year. It's a massive understatement. Hermit can't wait until St. Patrick's Day, so he's celebrating early again this year.

Hermit's Premature Party event runs from today through to March 14th at Noon PST. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Larry and Kyle to your roster.

Of course, as this is a 2017 update of the original event you can also collect two new Crusaders: Snickette the Sneaky and Squiggles the Clown.

New Tier Two Crusader: Snickette the Sneaky.

The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Snickette the Sneaky. The sneaky leprechaun shares the same seat as Sarah the Collector. At level 100, her ability Favorite Prey increases the DPS of human Crusaders in the party by +50%.

At level 400, Snickette unlocks The Blame Game which increases the DPS of all Crusaders by +50% if there is more than one leprechaun in the formation.

New Tier Two Crusader: Squiggles the Clown.

Squiggles the Clown is the stuff of nightmares until you've unlocked him and then he becomes less scary and whole lot more useful. At level 100, he unlocks Royal Past ability where it increases his DPS +150% but minus 25% for every Royal Crusader in the formation (0% with six Royal Crusaders in the formation). At level 400 his Receptive Audience ability increases his DPS +200% when adjacent to at least two Humans.

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

New Tier Two Objective: Party Animals... er, Humans.

In Party Animals... er, Humans only Human and Leprechaun Crusaders are available all the way to area 400.

New Tier Two Objective: Drunk Too Much.

In the objective, Drunk Too Much the Crusaders are starting to feel worse for wear. Pink Elephants appear but can't be killed (and don't block spawns, by the way). You must reach area 450 before you can get some water to sober up a bit.

New Tier Two Objective: Wicked Hangover.

The final new Tier Two objective is Wicked Hangover. Two formation slots have their formation abilities and DPS disabled; the two affected slots change every ten areas!

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

You'll have until March 14th at Noon PST to complete the event. Cheers!

Legendary Crafting Update 


In today's 0.100 patch, we've added Crafting and Legendary Items to the game.

Crafting is a way to get specific gear for your Crusaders without having to get lucky while opening a chest. With the proper recipe and materials, you will be able to craft even the most epic gear. It's easier said than done, though, as gathering the materials and unlocking the recipe for the piece of gear you want isn't a walk in the park.


Gathering Material

Crafting Material is obtained by disenchanting duplicate gear. Previously, disenchanted gear turned into Enchantment Points for your Crusaders, which passively increased their DPS. Now, however, you will no longer get EP for duplicate gear. Instead, you'll gain a random amount of crafting material based on the rarity of the disenchanted item.


So how do you get EP for your Crusaders? Missions! Missions that award EP have been buffed considerably in terms of award and frequency so that you can still boost the EP of your favorite Crusaders to the same degree -- possibly even more so.

Crafting material drops are not retroactive, so regardless of how much duplicate equipment you've found in the past, you'll keep the EP you earned from it and will still start your crafting stockpile from scratch just like everybody else.


Crafting Recipes

All players start with the recipes for the Common and Uncommon gear for the initial 20 Crusaders. Crafting gear outside of that limited set require that you unlock additional recipes. How do you do that? Missions! New missions will now appear en-masse to help you learn new recipes. Each successful mission will unlock one or more rare or epic recipes. A special type of recipe mission will unlock all the common and uncommon recipes for a single event Crusader, giving you a way to deck out your newly recruited event Crusaders in basic gear, even outside of the event itself. Note that recipes for event Crusaders cannot be found during the event they unlock in or within 2 weeks of an event ending. For the purposes of recipes, the Crusaders in the 21+ slots are treated like event Crusaders.

As with crafting material, recipes has not been awarded retroactively. Everyone is starting on even footing when it comes to finding the rarest of recipes.

Legendary Gear

Legendary Gear is the ultimate equipment. In addition to a massively enhanced base bonus, twice as big as the epic equivalent, each piece of Legendary Gear comes with a whole new unique Legendary Effect that could completely switch up your formation. What's more, that effect can be leveled up indefinitely as long as you've got the crafting material to do so.





Getting Legendary Gear

There are a couple of things you'll need before you can get a piece of Legendary Gear. The first is the Epic version of the item you want. Crafting will make it easier to get specific Epic loot, but in general Jeweled Chests are your primary source for Epic items.

Upgrading Epic to Legendary gear.

The second thing you'll need is a Legendary Catalyst. Legendary Catalysts are new random drops from Jeweled Chests. They can also be obtained via rare Missions. They are consumed when you craft Legendary items. The number of Legendary Catalysts you need depend on how much Legendary Gear you're crafting at once. The first piece of gear will only take one Legendary Catalyst, but each piece of gear after that will take 66% more Catalysts, rounded to the nearest whole number. Every week after your first Legendary craft, the number of Catalysts required will decrease by 80%, to a minimum of one. Basically this is a long-winded way of saying if you want to craft more than one Legendary Item per week, it's going to cost you extra Catalysts.

But that's it! If you've got the Epic item you want to upgrade and the required number of Catalysts, you can simply click a button to upgrade your piece of Epic gear to a piece of Legendary gear, increasing its bonus and gaining access to its Legendary Effect.





Upgrading Legendary Gear

The power spike doesn't stop there. Once you have a piece of Legendary Gear you can upgrade its Legendary Effect by spending Crafting Material. You can choose to use Common, Uncommon, Rare, or Epic material, based on whatever you have lying around. The amount of material it takes increases with each level. It's worth it, however, as the Legendary Effect doubles with each Legendary Level.

Upgrading Legendary gear.

Oh, About Golden Epics...

For those of you with Golden Epics, don't dismay. You won't lose the Golden benefit when you upgrade to Legendary tier. All Golden Epics can be turned into Golden Legendaries for the same cost as upgrading a normal Epic to a Legendary. In addition, if you don't have a Golden Epic and craft a Legendary in its slot, a future flash sale may offer you the Golden Legendary directly.

We're exited to see what you guys come up with now that Legendary Effects are unlockable. There are dozens of new potential formations to explore, and even the most underappreciated Crusader may have a new lease of life once they have a few Legendary items at their disposal. Happy Crusading!
