Wrena’s Skin

While we share some of our upcoming plans for the game, we like to keep some things as surprises. We generally do not announce upcoming weekend promo Golden loot, and we felt this skin fell into the same category, though we appreciate that some players feel the skin is a more major change than we did. In hindsight, we should have handled the release of this skin in a more open fashion.

We also realize that players would have liked to hear from us sooner than the Q&A on Tuesday. We have been discussing the community's reaction to the skin internally and wanted to make sure our follow-up plans were solidified before we made any announcements.

Skins in General

A previous Q&A response had suggested that skins would not affect gameplay. We didn’t mean to imply that the decision had been finalized, and we’re sorry that people feel misled. Going forward, we expect most skins to have an effect on the game, whether via tags or something else entirely. We hope to keep these fair to all players.

Skins in the Challenge Shop

To start, in early August, we will be adding a new rotating item to the Challenge shop, exclusively for skins. As with Golden loot, a different skin will be offered every 2 weeks, as long as there are any you do not own. Initially it will contain 3 all-new skins, with more down the line.

Wrena’s Skin in the Challenge Shop

Until December 2019, Wrena's “The Foul” skin will remain exclusive to those who received it with the weekend chests. Then, it will be added to the pool of skins that can be offered in the Challenge shop.

Future Premium Skins

Future premium skins, except those sold as part of DLC packs, will follow the same model. They will become available in the Challenge shop 5 months after their initial sale.

Regarding Skin Tags

Generally, a Crusader’s new set of tags from an equipped skin count as their real tags (unlike tags applied by formation abilities.) This means they affect mission success, and can allow the use of these Crusaders in objectives where they would not otherwise be available. Note that Crusaders’ skins cannot be changed while they are on a mission.

Thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter.

COTLI: Nate's Candy Conundrum 4 

Good mythical morning! Not again! Nate's devious antics have landed your Crusaders in yet another sugar-coated parallel world. Will you conquer it in time and recruit new friends? Find out as you face down the sweet fiends in Nate's Candy Conundrum 4!

The Nate's Candy Conundrum 4 event runs until Tuesday, April 30th at Noon PDT. For more information, check out the How to Play /FAQ in-game!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Bridget the Painter

That heavenly laughter you hear? That's the sound of your new friend Bridget the Painter as she makes friends with everyone in your formation and paints them with good cheer. Plus, she'll increase the DPS of the Crusaders in front of her based on how many Good Crusaders are in the formation.

Note: Bridget is a wizard with her paint brush and she knows how to use it.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Alan the Archangel, RoboRabbit, Baenarall, Angel of Hope, Sisaron the Dragon Sorceress and Biff the Magic Rabbit are ready and raring to go, once you unlock them!

Five New Tier 4 Objectives!

  • Recruit Bridget the Painter | Reach area 600 with angels leading the way. Bridget takes up a slot in the formation and only Angel Crusaders will be able to deal DPS.

  • Spring is Sprung | Reach area 700 while only using the Crusaders from Nate's Candy Conundrum.

  • Chicken Rabbits | Reach area 750 while the Chicken Rabbits attack. And no, those aren't rabbits that are chicken. These tough monsters take extra time to kill, but while they're alive Chocolate Egg monsters will spawn. Chocolate Eggs drop extra gold, and always count towards quest progress when you kill them.

  • What's that Smell? | Reach area 800 with spoiled eggs. Four eggs take up spots in the formation and start out by providing good buffs to your Crusaders, but as you go deeper their rotten natures are revealed.

  • Which Came First? | Reach area 850 while solving an age-old question. Chicken and Dino monsters spawn at random. Chickens make Eggs, which make dinos, which make eggs, which make chickens, forever and ever!

COTLI: Hermit's Premature Party 4 

There's no such thing as a party starting too early — at least, that's what The Washed Up Hermit believes. Why celebrate St. Patrick's day for just one day? Why not instead celebrate for a whole two weeks!?

Perhaps Hermit is excited because his latest guest, Ana Guinness, an internationally-renowned bartender, has really cranked the party up to 11. She's here to make sure every Crusader has the time of their lives, and with her millennia of experience to back up her skills, lets just say she knows how to keep a Tier 4 party going until the sun comes up a dozen times over.

Welcome to Hermit's Premature Party 4! Hermit's Premature Party 4 introduces Ana Guinness, and brings back Kyle the Party Bro, Larry the Leprechaun, Snickette the Sneaky, Squiggles the Clown, and Saint Patroika! The party ends on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Ana Guinness

News of your exploits has spread far and wide, from the crowded cities to the hidden taverns of fae kind. Ana Guinness, bartender extraordinaire, is ready to have some adventures of her own again, after millenia serving drinks to her fellow leprechauns.

Of course, she wouldn't be a leprechaun without an affinity for treasure, and if you follow the rainbow she guards, bosses you encounter will drop silver chests more often. Plus, gold will just rain from the monsters as they die before you from her gold find abilities.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Kyle the Party Bro, Larry the Leprechaun, Snickette the Sneaky, Squiggles the Clown, and Saint Patroika are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Ana Guinness | Ana Guinness takes up a slot in the formation If a boss drops a chest, you lose DPS for 30 seconds. Reach area 600.

  • Leprechaun Party | Leprechauns and Elf Crusaders only. Invisible leprechaun enemies spawn randomly and are invisible, only appearing once they reach your formation. Reach area 700.

  • My Girl Likes Treasure All The Time | A Greedy Coin takes up a slot in the formation. Whenever you pick up gold, the Greedy Coin disables DPS for several seconds. The Greedy Coin also deals damage over time to Clicker Crusaders. Reach area 750.

  • Beers to You | Area quest requirements are tripled. Additionally, special Beer Monsters spawn on occasion, which increase area quest progress by 10 upon death. Reach area 800.

  • The Emerald Isle | An emerald island takes up the center slot in the formation. For every 100 monsters you kill, one Crusader gets disabled for 30 seconds. Reach area 850.

COTLI: The Nate Before Christmas 4 

    Twas the Nate Before Christmas, with a chill in the air,
    a new Crusader arrives — Wrena the Fair!

    she's badass but friendly, joyous and caring,
    she joins the Crusaders, in a holiday pairing,
    from an Elvish enclave, deep in the mountains,
    she journeys outward, destination uncertain,
    to fight for her people, there's no line she won't cross,
    she'll slay all the monsters, just like a boss!

The end of another year approaches, and with it a brand-new badass Elven Crusader arrives to herald in the new year! Collect Wrena the Fair and the rest of The Nate Before Christmas' Crusaders before the event wraps up on New Year's Day, January 1, 2019!

The Nate Before Christmas 4 runs until January 1, 2019 at 12:00PM PT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Wrena the Fair

Wrena the Fair is one badass mutha — but she's also really friendly, and wants to promote Elvish welfare! She's come down from the Elven enclave in the mountains, as she's heard about your band of Crusaders...

Wrena is a DPS Crusader the way we wanted Tauriel to be (we're looking at YOU, Peter Jackson). She does DPS based upon how many Crusaders are in the formation.

Crusaders Return

  • Die Harder | Bruise Wallace takes up a slot in the formation. He buffs your DPS by 2000% minus 200% for every dead Crusader. Monsters also have increased health. Reach area 800.

  • Caution! Hot Chocolate! | Hot Chocolate cups spawn randomly. The first few buff your DPS for 15 seconds. If you've killed 7 on an area, all subsequent Hot Chocolates killed disable your DPS for 15 seconds. Reach area 850.

  • Saintly Glory | Each monster killed grants a random Crusader one stack of "Glory," which increases their DPS by 20% (stacking additively).
