COTLI: Merci's Mix-Up 7! 

Merci is nothing if not tenacious. After six years of trying to find a match for a Valentine's Day outing, he's still game to try and try again with help from his ever-growing collection of friends.

This year Merci's new friend is Audre DeLarveie!

It's time for Merci's Mix-Up 7!

Merci's Mix-Up 7 runs until Tuesday, February 22nd, introducing Audre DeLarveie and bringing back Rosoideae, Alacrity the Matchmaker, Rocky the Rockstar, Sally the Succubus, Warwick the Warlock, Katie the Cupid, Frankie the Demon Crooner, and Ishtar!

New Tier 7 Crusader: Audre DeLarveie

Tags: Event, Dwarf, Elf, Female, Support, Gold


A long time ago, and just around the corner in a cozy little cottage, a dwarf and an elf loved each other very much and they had a daughter, whom they named Audre. They raised her with love and taught her to be kind and polite, but polite doesn't mean agreeing with everything people ask of her. She also developed a backbone.

One day, you're walking along the street and past the cottage where Audre is sitting outside with a table and a stack of pamphlets.

"Could I talk to you about people's rights?" she asks, holding out a pamphlet to you.

Intrigued, you read the pamphlet a bit. "This is really well-thought-out. What's the catch?"

She grimaces. "What do you mean, catch? Everyone deserves fair treatment, no matter their background or views, but we're not there yet. There's still more work to do."

You think about it for a second. "That makes sense. We could use your spirit," you say. "Wanna come with us? We travel through a lot of universes, you could get your message spread pretty far."

Audre crosses her arms and thinks for a minute, looking at her cottage. "March with pride across the multiverse? Count me in. Hannah, I'm going on an adventure!"

Hannah stepped out of the cottage and walked over to Audre and you. "Of course you are," she said, giving Audre a hug and kiss. "But come back from time to time, all right? I'll miss you."

"A herd of stampeding alien trash pandas couldn't keep me away," Audre smirked. "I'll come back in my downtime." Turning to you, she said, "Let's go!"

Audre has joined the party.

    COTLI: Season 6, The Clocktower! 


    Mount the stairs and mind the gears as you explore the clocktower once again.

    Changes for Season 6

  • Dungeon Points, Dungeon Coins and Idol Bonus limit Extended - The cap on the Dungeon rewards has been increased from area 20,000 to area 35,000.

  • Changes to the base Dungeon Points and Coins drops - We've adjusted the base points and coins that drop from completing areas on the dungeon objectives, to hopefully give you a rest from sprinting constantly.

  • More Awesome Rewards! - Both the free and the Mysterious Benefactor's pass route have had their rewards tweaked again for season 6, including a new Crusader reward and more Rune-related items! See the "Introducing Zephoralei, the Eventide" section for more information on the new Crusader!

  • Infinite Rewards! - Once you've got all 40 of the normal rewards, you can keep earning points and unlocking levels of rewards. If you don't have the season pass, claiming the base reward on these bonus levels will cause the level to disappear, just so you have less to scroll. When you do purchase the pass, all the unclaimed pass rewards will be visible until you claim them.

  • Difficulty Scaling - This season sees the return of the difficulty scaling, and whatever difficulties you had unlocked for each objective last season should still be available at the start of this season.

  • Formation Change - Based on player feedback, we've changed the Playing it Old School formation to have 15 slots and a Mindy-friendly space.

  • Season 5 Rewards Now Available! - If you missed getting any of the major rewards during the previous season, you can now purchase them for Dungeon Coins!




  • Zephoralei, the Eventide
    Tags: Dungeon, Female, Dragon, Animal, DPS

    Introducing Zephoralei, the Eventide

    For reaching level 4 on the free rewards track this season, or from the Dungeon Depot in future seasons, you can welcome your new multi-headed friend Zephoralei, the Eventide.

    From the depths of time and born of the stars, Zephoralei has seen it all and enjoyed being with themselves. Sure, some pesky heroes tried to put a stop to them because they were monstrous, but it just gave them the knowledge of how to stave off the boredom.

    As Zephoralei powers up from fellow Crusaders using Savage Strikes, their other heads emerge (and talking to yourself can be handy over eons), with their Me, Myself and I ability. And what's a little poison between friends? With A Dash of Poison and Extra Deadly, Zephoralei gets extra DPS based on your current Critical Click chance.

    When you want to use them, you can find them in seat 40 on the bench.

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

    We hope you enjoy Season 6 of the Dungeons! Good luck!

    COTLI: The Nate Before Christmas Tier 7

    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: Emo's New Moon Tier 7 

      It's close to midnight, and something Emo's lurking in the dark...
      Under full moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart!

    Wait — this thriller night has happened six times before! And it's back again tonight! Emo's New Moon has returned, bringing ghosts and ghouls to the neighborhood schools where Crusaders fight for their lives from now until November 9th at noon Pacific!

    Emo's New Moon 7 introduces Xochitl, La Llorona the latest Tier 7 Crusader and brings back Crooked Crow, The Evanescent, Trixie the Treater, Viktor the Vampire, Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul, Fright-o-Tron 4000, Wendy the Witch, and Jack O'Lantern!

    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."


    Xochitl, La Llorona is a Support and Gold Crusader. When you want to add her to your formation, you can find her in slot 24.

    New Tier 7 Objectives

    • Recruit Xochitl, La Llorona | Xochitl, La Llorona takes up a slot in the formation. Wendy the Witch and Jack O'Lantern start in the formation, and can't be removed. Only Wendy can do DPS.

Beat area 650.

    • Ghost Story | Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul and Fright-o-Tron 4000 start in the formation, and can't be removed. Aside from locked-in crusaders, only Demon, Evil or Magical Crusaders can be used. Three old ladies occupy slots in the formation, telling ghost stories. They shift positions every 100 areas. Ghostbeard is curious if he stars in any of the stories and spawns randomly, scaring the old ladies and causing them to disable the DPS of adjacent Crusaders for 10 seconds. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Washed Up on World's Wake to complete. Beat area 750.

    • Malignant | Viktor the Vampire and Trixie the Treater start in the formation, and can't be removed. Aside from locked-in crusaders, only Demon, Evil or Magical Crusaders can be used.

While the camera is alive, your gold find is reduced to 0. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Washed Up on World's Wake to complete. Beat area 800.

    • Hex | The Evanescent starts in the formation, and can't be removed. Aside from the locked-in crusader, only Demon, Evil or Magical Crusaders can be used. The formation has been changed. A witch occupies a slot in the formation. If you take longer than 20 seconds to clear the area, she wakes up and wipes your formation. Note: This will require having purchased the max level of the Arithmagician Talent to complete. Beat area 850.

    • Tooth Fairy | Crooked Crow starts in the formation, and can't be removed. Aside from the locked-in crusader, only Demon, Evil or Magical Crusaders can be used. One lucky kid occupies a slot in the formation. The evil witch spawns randomly and scares the kid, causing the upgrades and formation abilities of adjacent Crusaders to be disabled for 10 seconds. Note: This will require having purchased the max level of the Arithmagician Talent to complete. Beat area 900.

    COTLI: Season 4, The Abyssal Chasm 


    We've been down, we've gone up, we've gotten wet and now it's time to get toasty!

    Season 4 debuts the Abyssal Chasm theme and some new rewards from the reward tracks! Mind the lava and take a peak at these scorching updates!

    Changes for Season 4

    We've changed up the following formation this season:


    Fun and Games


  • Dungeon Points, Dungeon Coins and Idol Bonus limit Extended - The cap on the Dungeon rewards has been increased from area 15,000 to area 17,500.

  • Changes to the base Dungeon Points and Coins drops - We've adjusted the base points and coins that drop from completing areas on the dungeon objectives, in order to encourage choosing the points or coins buff if you want to stock up on your currencies.

  • Changes to the Dungeon Points and Coins Buffs - The buffs that increase the Points or Coins that you'll get from your current dungeon objective have been increased to 300%.

  • More Awesome Rewards! - Both the free and the Mysterious Benefactor's pass route have had their rewards tweaked again for season 4, including a new Crusader reward and more Rune-related items! See the "Introducing Torakichi, the Greedy Tengu" section for more information on the new Crusader!

  • Updated Dungeon FAQ - The Dungeon FAQ has been updated with questions and answers about how the Dungeon Crusaders and difficulty scaling work.

  • Difficulty Scaling - This season we're trying out the difficulty scaling mechanic, to test your levels of power but keep the time spent on a reset in a manageable range. See the "Dungeon Scaling" section for more information.

  • Season 3 Skins Now Available! - If you missed getting these skins during the previous season, you can now purchase them for Dungeon Coins!

  • Dungeon Scaling

    In addition to the normal difficulty level of the Dungeons, which is the same as the difficulty of the World's Wake campaign, there are two additional difficulty levels for the Dungeon objectives this season.


    Sample Start Objective Screen


    You can see the new Difficulty Level section under the flavour text for the objective. When you've cleared area 10,000 on difficulty 1 and reset the world, then the objective will default to difficulty 2. Clearing area 10,000 on difficulty 2 will unlock difficulty 3. Don't worry: if it's too hard to make progress on a higher difficulty, you can toggle it back to a lower difficulty level.

    By getting past area 10,000 on difficulty level 2, you'll start earning more rewards for your efforts. And if you get high enough you can earn up to 4% bonus idols. By getting past area 7,500 on difficulty level 3, your rewards will start going up, and you can earn up to 4.5% bonus idols if you have the power. The dungeon points and coins drops also increase up to area 17,500 on both higher difficulty levels.

    Don't forget to check what difficulty you're using before you start the objective!

    Introducing Torakichi, the Greedy Tengu

    For reaching level 8 on the free rewards track this season, or from the Dungeon Depot in future seasons, you can welcome your new clever friend Torakichi, the Greedy Tengu. Blending tengu with a myna bird, Torakichi is the Mindy contender you've been waiting for, with his Serial Copycat ability allowing you to copy most abilities of Crusaders in two random formation spots. The chosen formation spots change on every reset of the world.

    When you want to use him, you can find him in seat 4 on the bench.


    Torakichi, The Greedy Tengu - Normal look

    Tags: Support, Animal, Male, Evil, Gold, Demon, Dungeon



    Crusaders in formation spots Torakichi is copying will sport a random speech bubble icon near the top of their sprites.



    Hover the Serial Copycat icon from Torakichi's bench information to see what spots in formation he's marked.



    If Torakichi is in one of the randomly marked spots, then there will only be 1 green arrow leaving him.



    Torakichi, The Greedy Tengu - Traditional Tengu skin

    Effect: The Tradition effect removes the Animal tag and adds the Supernatural tag.


    You can unlock Torakichi's skin from reaching level 18 on the rewards track and having the Mysterious Benefactor's pass purchased, or after season 4 is over by spending Dungeon Coins in the Dungeon Depot.

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

    We hope you enjoy Season 4 of the Dungeons! Good luck!
