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. Xochitl, La Llorona damages all Crusaders in formation by 10% of their max health every second. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Bullet Hell on Ready Player Two to complete. 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. The play area randomly goes pitch black, and a random effect occurs before light returns. A camera monster spawns to take your picture to commemorate the moment. 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.

More info

You'll have until Tuesday, November 9th at 12:00 PM Pacific Time to complete Emo's New Moon 7!

Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4, Tier 5, Tier 6, and Tier 7 Crusaders will only appear in All Tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

    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.

    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.

  • 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!
