New Event! A Song of Thrones 2017 

Winter is coming, but not before the Summer and Fall. Then Winter is coming. In the meantime, you can check out our A Song of Thrones event and new Tier 2 Crusaders!

The A Song of Thrones 2017 event runs from today through to July 25th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Leerion, the Royal Dwarf and Brogon, Prince of Dragons to your roster.

The two new Tier 2 Crusaders (available to recruit after you've completed Tier 1 are RoboQueen and Zombie Winter.

New Crusader: RoboQueen.


Once recruited, RoboQueen unlocks RoboFamily at level 100 and it increases her DPS +100% for every adjacent Robot.

At level 400, her ability I Like Dragons increases her DPS +400% per Dragon or Dragon family member Crusader in the formation.

Additionally, for the first time ever, RoboQueen has equipment that increases her max level past the cap. Chilling!

The second new Tier 2 Crusader is Zombie Winter.

New Crusader: Zombie Winter.

At level 50, Zombie Winter unlocks Touch of Wealth. He'll touch a random adjacent Crusader every 10 seconds, increasing gold find by 40% for 30 seconds.

At level 400, Zombie Winter unlocks Lingering Cold which causes his Touch of Wealth effect to last 50% longer.

Once you've recruited both RoboQueen and Zombie Winter, there are three new side objectives to tackle in your quest.

New Objective: Ride of the Horsefolk.

In Ride of the Horsefolk, starting in area 1 and every 50 areas thereafter a slot in the formation is taken up by a horsefolk rider, until all slots are consumed by the primitive horde.

New Objective: Continuous Coups.

In the objective Continuous Coups, the DPS of all Crusaders is reduced by 99.9%, except for four bench slots who are deemed the "Kings and Queens" of the land. The Kings and Queens receive a DPS and gold bonus as well. Every 50 areas the slots who are "Kings and Queens" change.

New Objective: Season One Rewatch.

The final new objective is Season One Rewatch. Only the base 20 Crusaders and four Crusaders from this event are available to use.

Equipment for the Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Thrones chests. You'll have until July 25th at Noon PDT to complete the event.

11th Objectives Update and a Weekend Buff! 

Have you been looking for an extra challenge? Then we have just the thing. Following on from our 11th Objectives update we've added two new advanced objectives to two campaigns. However, the rewards are worth it: Two new Crusaders can be unlocked, The Priestess of Time and Agent 79.

The first of the two new objectives is Reversion in the Idols Through Time campaign. Your Crusaders must beat area 750 but every 25 areas, your Crusaders will lose 25 levels. We didn't say it was going to be easy.


If or when you're successful, you'll unlock The Priestess of Time. She has some awesome abilities. At level 25, Time Stop freezes random enemies every 10 seconds for 20 seconds at a time. At level 600 enemies take 100% more damage!

The second of the two new objectives is Water Guns of Doom in the Amusement Park of Doom campaign. All enemies have water guns that they constantly shoot the Crusaders with. Occasionally, a big beefy water-powered water-gun toting robot appears and shields all other non-water-powered-gun-robot enemies until killed. The insane action goes all the way to area 775.


Beat the objective and you'll unlock Agent 79, a support Crusader specialising in ranged attacks. At level 100, Ricochet Training makes all projectiles have a 15% chance of bouncing and causing 50% damage to an additional monster. Better still, the ricochet can bounce up to five times if you're lucky!

At level 400, Explosive Ammo makes all projectiles explode on impact, dealing 25% of their base damage to all nearby monsters.

The Priestess of Time


Agent 79


But wait, we have more! Five Crusaders will also get a A Time to Strike weekend buff!

  • Serpent King Draco - Base DPS +400%
  • Mister the Monkey - Monkey Business ability +200%
  • Artaxes, the Lion - Roar! ability +200%

New Event! Alien Invasion Day 2017 

Those aliens never learn! The giant alien motherships hover into view above the freshly repainted White House, Eiffel Tower, and Big Ben. The builders in each country collectively sigh and start collecting their tools again.

The Alien Invasion Day 2017 event runs from today through to July 4th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Billy Smithsonian and Kizlyblyp, the Alien Traitor to your roster.

Kizlblyp has inspired another Crusader to leave Team Alien. Slisibyp, the Alien Scientist, has decided that joining the Crusaders will provide better opportunities for human experimentation. That's certainly what happens in the first objective when her weird alien hive-mind sees her conducting debilitating experiments on the other Crusaders until liberated after area 300.

New Crusader: Slisiblyp, the Alien Scientist.


Once recruited, Slisblyp unlocks Symbiosis which enables her to absorb 15% of non-adjacent heroes DPS and convert it to Click Damage.

At level 300, her ability Slimy makes clicked enemies move slower for 5 seconds which is renewed for each click.

The second new Tier 2 Crusader is Red, the Ace Pilot, an awesome support Crusader who can provide cover for the Crusaders in front of her.

New Crusader: Red, the Ace Pilot.

At level 50, Red unlocks Cover. Her ability increases damage done against enemies who are attacking Crusaders adjacent to or in front of her by 25%.

Red unlocks Call for Backup increases the effect of Cover by 25% for each enemy attacking her (additive for each attacking enemy, then multiplicative with the effect of Cover).

Once you've recruited both Slislblyp and Red, there are three new side objectives to tackle in your quest.

New Objective: Catastrophe

In Catastrophe, Meteors rain from the sky, constantly damaging your Crusaders (a meteor falls every second, dealing 20% health damage to a single Crusader per hit). Meanwhile, a cock-sure oil driller and his two lackeys take up a slots in the formation.

New Objective: Parasites.

In the objective Parasites, three alien parasites jump from slot to slot in your formation. Two red parasites reduce the DPS of Crusaders they're attached to by 100%, while a single gold parasite disables formation abilities of whoever it's attached to.

New Objective: War of the Worlds.

The final new objective is War of the Worlds. Giant invulnerable alien tripod robot enemies spawn randomly and slowly move toward the formation. When they reach your formation, they instantly kill anyone they touch.

Equipment for the Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Independence chests. You'll have until July 4th at Noon PDT to complete the event.

Sneak Peak! Tier 4 Talents and Legendary Changes! 

They've been surrounded in rumor for a while, but now we're finally ready to talk about some of the upcoming Tier 4 Talents as well as some changes to certain Legendary loot. Read on to find out more!

Tier 4 Talents

One of the most common questions about Tier 4 Talents that we've seen is what area will you have to reach to unlock them. If you'll recall, you can't buy Tier 1 talents until you reach area 150. Tier 2 require 300, and Tier 3 require 600. Tier 4 Talents will continue the climb and require that you reach area 900 in any campaign before you can buy them. They will also cost a ridiculous amount of idols.

To give you a taste for the power invested in these new talents, we've going to highlight one of the new talents from each tree in this teaser blog. Are you ready?

Active Tree: Instant Satisfaction



This talent allows you to use your active abilities in rapid succession - if you're lucky! Why use Fire Storm once when twice is double as good? Maxing out the 21 levels in this talent to get a 50% chance will cost you just shy of 10,000,000 idols.

Passive Tree: Idols Over Time



The more time you take on a run, the more Idols you will earn. The bonus stacks additively and is progressive, so if you've got it maxed out at 50% for every 2 hours, you'll get 100% more idols after just four hours, 125% after five hours, and a massive 600% more after a day of idling. Great for overnight free plays or adding value to long challenging objectives! Maxing out this talent will cost you a cool 8,400,000 idols.

Utility Tree: Sprint Mode



What is Sprint Mode? Sprint mode allows you to skip between boss areas extremely quickly, assuming you can finish off the boss fast enough! If you defeat the boss and his minions within seven seconds of entering the area, you'll skip ahead five areas directly into the next boss area. This ability is only active in free play, but is definitely the creme de la creme of the new talents. Consider taking only 10 or 15 minutes to reach area 500 on your free plays? The idols will really start to pour in now. This power won't come cheap, though. Unlocking Sprint Mode up to area 500 will cost you more than 25,000,000 idols.

These new changes should allow players to reach new heights and earn idols even faster than ever before. While there is no tier 4 objective talent in this initial release, it is planned for a future update, meaning there will eventually be a whole slew of incredibly challenging objectives available for our most dedicated and voracious players.

Other Changes

We're also making some changes to the effects of several Legendary items - mainly items that increased the effects of existing formation abilities or stacked in unintended and overly powerful ways. These items will now instead provide an additive stacking buff. A full list of affected items will be released in the change log of the update.

But what if you've invested a lot of crafting material and catalysts in these items and don't find the new items to be powerful enough for your tastes? Well, we've taken care of that. You will now be able to disenchant (DE) Legendary items to recover the materials spent on them. Each DE'd legendary will return enough Common material to level them up to whatever level they were, as well as credit a free legendary craft. Free Legendary crafts do not require any catalysts, and are used automatically when you craft your next Legendary item(s).

We've also listened to players who were unhappy that Golden Legendary items used the normal Legendary name and icon, rather than special animated icons. In this update we'll make a change to all Golden Legendaries so that they use the same icon and name as the Golden Epic items that they upgrade from.

Wrapping Up

This update will also refresh players' free Talent respecs back to three. We're hoping to get this update out in the next little while, so stay tuned to the in-game news and change log over the coming weeks! Happy idling, Crusaders!
