New Tier 7 Crusader: Umut, the Elemental Chimera

Tags: Event, Support, Demon, Dragon, Good, Evil, Male, Female, Supernatural, Gold, Royal


Heat, searing down on you. The prickle of sweat dripping down your neck and evaporating off your exposed skin. The azure water lapping the stony shore of the beach below you looks tempting, but you're uncertain if it's safe for you to take a swim in it. You turn your attention back to the path beneath your feet as you continue to climb up the craggy hill, the slightly lighter brown dust the only indication it is actually a path. You carefully make your way to the summit, only occasionally wishing that the portal for this world had let you out closer to the spot indicated on the mysterious invitation you received, though when you reach the top and check your watch, you discover you're early.

Gazing at the sky while you recover your breath a little, you note some clouds moving towards you that you hadn't seen earlier. In fact, the sky is starting to darken more than should be possible as the clouds near the summit, the gust of metallic-smelling wind bringing them also churning the water below. Thunder starts to rumble and you glance around urgently for shelter, but there's nothing to be had.

You try to head back down the path, to not be the tallest thing around, but an invisible force keeps you on the summit. You crouch down, arms over your head and eyes closed, hoping against all hopes, but the summit fills with light as the lightning strikes, followed by a fierce crack of thunder. Curiosity gets the better of you and you open your eyes to take a peek.

A large bulky shape looms in the fog that now covers the summit, but the wind is still blowing strong, so the fog blows off quickly, revealing the mass. Three pairs of eyes meet your gaze from three separate heads.

"Leaving so soon?" the lion-looking head asks. "The meeting hasn't even started yet."

You stand up so you can get the invitation out of your pocket. "You're Umut, the Elemental Chimera?"

The snake-looking head nods at you. "Indeed. Thank you for coming."

"It's not every day an invitation randomly shows up hovering in an air bubble," you answer, shrugging. "I figured it would be worth investigating."

"Just the sort of response we like," the goat-like head chimes in. "We shall join you."

You blink and take a second to think. "Wait, what?"

Umut walks closer to you and all three heads look at you again. The lion one speaks, "We are ready to travel and have new adventures and someone who answers mysterious invitations is bound to have some good adventures. We will come with you."

You meet the gaze of each head in turn, noting the fangs glittering in their mouths and the claws on their paws. Another lightning bolt strikes the summit across from you. "Of course," you swallow. "You seem to be just what we need for our adventures as well."

All three of Umut's heads break out into wide grins. "Agreed," the heads chorus as one.

Umut, the Elemental Chimera has joined the party. When you want to use them, you can find them in seat 35.

    New Tier 7 Crusader: Springy, the Patchwork Plush

    Tags: Event, Support, Gold, Animal, Male, Supernatural


    A new day, a new planet. You've been trekking through the tangled weeds, grasses and trees from the portal opening when you almost trip on a hard flat object in the ground. Glancing around, you see the foliage isn't as dense and you can make out a structure in the distance. As you approach, you note a sign that says " G M L" on it mounted on the side of the structure.

    You see a door and step inside, smelling an oddly familiar cinnamon and popcorn scent on the stale air. It's an alien mall! And some franchises are just that powerful. You walk in further, eyes adjusting to the gloom of dirty skylights.

    A rustling noise draws your attention. Something seems to be approaching you. As it gets closer you hear a rhythmic thumping and the tinkle of something metal hitting the tile floor. It thumps into a brighter patch of light and you see a kangaroo plushie made of assorted fabrics just before it jumps on you and you thud to the floor.

    "Friend?" the creature asks.

    "If I say yes, will you get off me?"

    The kangaroo ducks their head and carefully steps off you. "Sorry. It's been ages since someone visited."

    "You're here all alone?"

    The kangaroo hops. "There's the occasional mouse that I stomp on, but they don't talk, so they don't count."

    You scratch your head. "My friends and I are travellers, and we're a pretty large band. In the spirit of the season, would you like to join us?"

    "Would I still get to stomp things?" they ask.

    You smile. "Definitely."

    Springy, the Patchwork Plush has joined your party.

    COTLI: The Nate Before Christmas 6! 

      O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how angry are thy branches...!
      O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree -- how much you embody the rage of nature and bring the wrath of the elements down upon us all!

    Once again The Nate Before Christmas blesses our doors, and this year we are visited by a princess of snow: Odile, Snowflake Defender!

    The Nate Before Christmas 6 runs until Tuesday, December 29th at 12PM PST, introducing Odile, Snowflake Defender and bringing back Frosty the Snowman, RoboSanta, The Dark Helper, RoboRudolph, Xander the Xmas Dragon, Wrena the Fair and Kris, the Enraged Elemental!

    New Tier 6 Crusader: Odile, Snowflake Defender

    Tags: Event, Magical, Female, Healer, Supernatural, Gold, Good


    In the Realm of Berwin, Odile was the first-born daughter of Queen Odessa and King Ambros. The Realm of Berwin, also known as the Domain of Winter, was one of the four realms dedicated to fighting the dark spirits of the otherrealm and protecting the spirits of the seasons. Not only were the royal family of Berwin already strong ice magic users, but when Odile was born, the Spirit of Winter itself appeared and bestowed some of its magic upon her.

    As she grew up, Odile began training in secret with her mother, but it soon became apparent that her powers were much stronger than Odessa's, even in one so young. Whispers of Odile's power made their way to the otherrealm where the Spirit of Destruction, Glut, had been resting for many years. Glut sent minions out to investigate the rumours surrounding Odile. One small shadow spirit succeeded and brought the news to its master.

    Glut attacked the realm of Berwin, laying waste to the area as he made his way to capture Odile, bringing an air of blight to the once pristine world. Odessa and Ambros managed to hold off the first wave of dark spirits, but Glut had grown in power in its time away. To buy some time and save their people, the royals decided to send Odile away, wiping her memory and transporting her to Earth. Craving the power within, Glut abandoned its siege and followed Odile's trail through the realms though it would take time to find her.

    Odile, now living with her new glamoured family as Odette, continued to grow up and lead a normal, mundane life. But Glut's minions eventually stumbled into the right realm and found the missing princess, causing the Spirit of Winter to break the seal her parents had placed. Odile remembered her powers, her family, and with her memories regained, she stepped into her role of Snowflake Defender, ready to help the Crusaders on their quest.

    New Tier 6 Objectives

    • Recruit Odile, Snowflake Defender |Odile takes up a slot in the formation. Frosty the Snowman and RoboSanta take up spots in the formation and can't be moved. Only Crusaders affected by Frosty's Chilling Power or RoboSanta's Expensive Toys will do DPS. Note: This will require having cleared the objective To Infinity and Beyond on Ghostbeard's Greed to complete. Reach area 600.

    • Chocolate Spaghetti | RoboRudolph and the Dark Helper take up spots in the formation and can't be moved. Businessmen spawn randomly and target a random Crusader while they're alive. Targeted Crusaders will have their DPS reduced to 0 while the businessman who targeted them is alive and for 10 seconds afterwards. Note: This will require having cleared the objective To Infinity and Beyond on Ghostbeard's Greed to complete. Reach area 650.

    • Guardians Risen | Xander the Xmas Dragon takes up a slot in the formation and can't be moved. A fiery escort takes up a slot in the formation and changes positions every 100 areas. Fireball monsters spawn randomly and provide either a debuff or buff when killed. These stacks persist until you reset the world.

    If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders RoboSanta and Frosty by completing the respective Tier One objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, The Dark Helper and RoboRudolph, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

    Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

    • Recruit Xander, the Xmas Dragon | Xander takes up a slot and rains presents from the sky. Unfortunately, these presents kill your Crusaders. Reach area 500.

    • A Supernatural Christmas | Only Dragon and Supernatural Crusaders can be used. Reach area 600.

    • Revenge of the Elves | A number of Evil Elves attack the formation, each with annoying abilities. Reach area 650.

    • The Christmas Beasts | Only Animal Crusaders can be used. Reach area 700.

    • Too Many Presents | A present takes up a slot. Every X levels, another slot is taken up, until there is no room at all for good little boys and girls. Reach area 750.

    Help! Where’s the Loot?

    Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Christmas Silver and 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, January 2nd at Noon PST to complete The Nate Before Christmas this season!

    Nate's Candy Conundrum 2017  

    It's that time of year again where you don't eat chocolate, chocolate eats you! Nates' reset ability fails again, sending the Crusaders into a parallel universe of demonic candy.

    Nate's Candy Conundrum event runs from today through to April 18th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Alan the Archangel and RoboRabbit to your roster.

    Of course, as this is a 2017 update of the original event you can also collect two new Crusaders: Baenarall, Angel of Hope, and Sisaron the Dragon Sorceress.

    New Tier Two Crusader: Baenarall, Angel of Hope.

    The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Baenarall. She's a powerful character who brings some awesome DPS buffs to the Crusaders.

    At level 150, her ability Diversity increases the global DPS +20% per Unique Tag in the formation but minus 5% for each duplicate tag Crusader (all additive) (ie. male, male, human, animal = 60% for 3 unique tags - 5% for extra male = 55%).

    At level 400, Baenarall unlocks The Old Guard which increases the global DPS +5% for each non-event Crusader in the formation.

    New Tier Two Crusader: Sisaron the Dragon Sorcereress.

    Sisaron, the Dragon Sorceress, is one scaly badass with the dual awesomeness of being both magic-wielding and a Dragon!

    At level 50, Sisaron unlocks Loose Magic, an ability that increases the DPS of adjacent Crusaders by 100%, divided by the number of adjacent Crusaders. At level 400 Sisaron's Sharpened Claws Crit Chance +3%.

    After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Baenarall and Sisaron, there are three more diabetes-inducing objectives to conquer.

    New Tier Two Objective: Sugar Rush.

    In Sugar Rush the monster spawn speed is increased but the area requirements are more than halved as the sugar kicks in. You must reach area 400 in under 90 minutes.

    New Tier Two Objective: Evil Eggs.

    In the objective, Evil Eggs, evil looking embryonic candy monsters attack your formation and have various abilities. You must figure out their secret weaknesses to reach area 450.

    New Tier Two Objective: Chocolate Rain.

    The final new Tier Two objective is Chocolate Rain. In non-boss areas, chocolate rain falls from the sky every few seconds, damaging a random Crusader for 40% of their HP. You must weather (boom-boom-tish!) the sticky downpour all the way to area 500.

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

    You'll have until April 18th at Noon PDT to complete the event. We hope you have an 'egg-sllent' time. *heh hem*

    The Nate Before Christmas 2016 

    It's that time of year again when thoughts turn to family, presents under the Christmas tree, turkey dinners, and giant twin swords to destroy unrelenting hordes of monsters.

    Today we launch The Nate Before Christmas 2016 with both the original Crusaders for new players to unlock and two new Crusaders for advanced and veteran players.

    As well as the repeat event and picking up RoboSanta and Frosty the Snowman if you don't already have them, players who get through the Tier One objectives will be able to tackle the more challenging Tier Two objectives. Their reward for beating them will be two new Crusaders to add to the team in the form of The Dark Elf Helper and Robo-Rudolph.


    Note: Since the new 'You've Been Naughty' objective was just added this year, players who completed this event last year will need to do it before starting the Tier Two objectives, so be sure to save up 2,500 Tokens before resetting!

    This new Tier One objective will see the Crusaders beset with coal monsters. These charcoal beasts reduce your gold find to zero for as long as they are on the screen and for an additional extra second after you kill them.

    For the veteran or hard-working players who have completed all the Tier One objectives, the new objectives require you to purchase the Tier Two talent Do it Again in the Talents shop.

    New Tier Two Crusader: The Dark Helper

    Once unlocked you can tackle the five new objectives. The first of them is 'Recruit the Dark Helper.' The Dark Helper is an elf (natch) who temporarily knocks out the front two Crusaders. For 10 seconds they'll be put to sleep and reduce their DPS and disable all their formation abilities to 1 all the way to 300.

    New Tier Two Crusader: Robo-Rudolph

    'Recruit Robo-Rudolph' requires you escort the malfunctioning reindeer to area 300 where he will be serviced. Until you reach the workshop, he'll short circuit and debuff three random Crusaders to zero in the formation for up to 15 seconds.

    New Tier Two Objective: Presents.

    The 'Presents' objective is the equivalent of Christmas morning as you anxiously eye the wrapped boxes under the Christmas tree. Is that box a pair of socks or the brand new X-Station console? When you kill the present monsters, they'll randomly buff or debuff your Crusaders all the way to area 400. You won't know what the effect will be until you take the wrapping paper off.

    New Tier Two Crusader: Let It Snow.

    The penultimate new objective is 'Let It Snow.' Drifts of snowflakes will accumulate on random slots in the formation. The drifts will get larger and will reduce the DPS of the affected Crusaders by 1% up to a maximum of 100%. If you can dig yourself out in time and complete the area the debuff is reset to zero. You're going to need a snow shovel to make it to area 400.

    New Tier Two Crusader: Robo-Christmas.

    The final new objective is 'Robo-Christmas.' Only robot and Christmas-y Crusaders are available for selection to beat area 500.

    Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Christmas Silver and Jeweled Chests, which you can earn from objectives or buy in the shop. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

    Once you have enough tickets, you'll have until December 27th at Noon PST to complete the event before the holidays will be done for another year.
