COTLI: Season 2 And Rune System Teaser! 

Get ready to collect those season rewards! Here's a sneak peek at Season 2 of the Dungeons, and the all-new power system, Runes!

Season 2: The Clocktower

Season 2 is coming and with it we've made some changes to the season and the Dungeons!

First, we've changed up some of the formations. Here's a sneak peek at the new formation for Playing it Old School.



Plus we've got a whole slew of new rewards from both passes, including a chance to get some Runes to help you out with the all-new Rune System!

Rune System

Looking to power up your Crusaders even more? Runes are here to help you out!

Each Crusader has room to slot 5 runes, on the all-new Rune screen. The first slot on a Crusader is unlocked for free, and the additional slots will cost Legendary Catalysts to unlock. Crusaders' runes provide different effects based on their role, such as Gold Find for Gold Finders Crusaders. Each Crusader also has a rune that will effect the outcome of missions, from extra EP to doubling the rewards of the mission they're sent on and more!

But that's not all: every Crusader will have a unique effect that can be unlocked by slotting the appropriately shaped Rune in their fifth slot! We'll be debuting with unique powers for a handful of Crusaders and update the other Crusaders in chunks every so often.

Every rune can also be leveled up, to get more power, with a max level of 15. You need to combine two runes of the same shape and level to get the next level of rune, so combining two level 2 runes would produce a level 3 rune. Higher levels of runes will also take Legendary Catalysts to craft in addition to the runes.

How to Acquire Runes

As noted above, Runes will be rewarded from both the free and the paid pass of the Season 2 rewards. You'll also be able to get them from weekly purchases of Rune Chests from the Ruby Store, Challenge Token Store, and Dungeon Shop, in addition to real money purchases in the Chest Shop.

We'll also be adding a few missions to the mission system that can award Runes.

So... release date?

We anticipate season 2 and the Rune System being released sometime in the next week or so, but as always we want to note that things could change unexpectedly, even the design itself. We'll keep you updated!

To celebrate the release being so soon, from now until Tuesday, October 20th, 2020 @ Noon Pacific Time, everyone gets a Wonderful Weekend of Idols buff! Reload the game to get the buff!

A Look Back At Crusaders In 2016 

It's been a busy year for us here at Codename Entertainment working on Crusaders. We thought we'd take some time to look back at the last year, as well as look ahead to what's still to come in 2017.

Phew! That lists make me tired just looking at it.

So how can we possibly top that in 2017? Well, we've got a few ideas up our collective sleeves, and since this is the season of giving, we thought we'd share one of them with you now. Take a look at these bad boys:






What are these brilliant beauties? They're LEGENDARY ITEMS, a new tier of loot coming to Crusaders in early 2017. You'll be able to upgrade your existing Epic items into Legendary items in our long awaited crafting update. Legendary Items have an additional unique effect, on top of their boosted epic effect, which can be leveled up multiple times to be even more powerful! These items represent the most significant increase in Crusader power since the Talents update earlier this year.

If you want to get prepared early to deck out your favorite Crusader with Legendary items, you'll need to make sure you've got the slots you want to upgrade filled with purple epic-y goodness. We'll be releasing more details about these items and how you get them in an update closer to the release of the crafting patch.

That's all we've got for you today! We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year! See you in 2017!
