    Idle Champions: Feast of the Moon 5 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    During Feast of the Moon, residents of the Sword Coast pay homage to the deeds of legendary heroes by visiting their crypts and graves.

    When the Champions arrive at The Crypt of Legends, they find hordes of undead crawling up from the depths. Something is making the dead heroes rise, and the answer will require a descent into the depths to discover the cause...

    Feast of the Moon 5 introduces Widdle, the Dhampir Gnome Wizard, played by Meagan Kenreck who you can see as Widdle on Idle Champions Presents the Trials of Mount Tiamat, airing Mondays at 4PM Pacific on the CNEGames Twitch. You can also catch her as Widdle on Heroes of the Planes Tuesdays at 6PM Pacific on the Demiplane Twitch.

    This event also brings back Penelope "Half-Pint", Circle of the Moon Druid and Warlock from Heroes of the Planes, and brings back Sentry, the Warforged Paladin (Oath of the Ancients) from High Rollers: Aerois. Players have until Monday, November 22nd at 12PM Pacific to complete your Feast of the Moon 5 unlocks and objectives.

    New Champion: Widdle



      Widdle's life goal is the destruction of Strahd, but with 423 years of gnomish wisdom, she realized she still needed more time. Becoming a dhampir seemed like the best option, and now she uses her enhanced speed and fearsome fangs to help her friends and show that being a dhampir does not make you a monster. With a big personality and an even bigger blunderbuss, she's ready to deal with any challenge!

    Widdle is a Support, Healing and Speed Champion who's vampiric charms can buff the damage of her allies while encouraging them to attack faster. But all this battle can make a dhampir hungry, and those she buffs look extra tasty to oncoming enemies, making them spawn faster. When you want to add Widdle to your formation you can swap her with Celeste (Slot 2).

    II. Widdle's Stats

    Race: Dhampir Gnome Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Class: Wizard Gender: Female
    Age: 423 Affiliation: Heroes of the Planes

    STR: 18 DEX: 15 CON: 13
    INT: 17 WIS: 12 CHA: 11

    Role: Healing, Support, Speed

    Eligible for Patrons: Strahd

    Slot: 2, (Celeste)


    III. Widdle's Design

    We've been adding the Heroes of the Planes to our Champion roster for quite a while, and it's a wonderful joy to have Meagan Kenreck honor us by bringing the final member to the party! Meagan is a Twitch streamer, graphic designer, photoshop enthusiast, and advocate for inclusivity. She's also known as Sofieus on Silver and Steel, the co-host of "Todd and Meagan talk D&D", and also plays as Widdle in "The Adventures of Widdle and Rend", a D&D one on one show with her Husband, Todd, who plays as Rend.

    Widdle always seems to be grinning as she leads the charge into adventure or battle. She focuses on increasing the damage and speed of her friends, boosting adjacent Champion damage with Vampiric Gaze while reducing their base attack cooldowns by encouraging them to Hurry Up Now. Her Specializations boost her damage buff based on specific ability scores, and her Vampiric Bite Ultimate attack not only does enormous damage to a random enemy, but heals herself and her friends.

    For more information on Widdle and her abilities, check out her Champion Spotlight!

    Year Five Variants


    • Variant 1: Dhampiric Nature — Widdle begins in the formation. She can't be moved or removed. Undead Enemies deal 200% additional damage and move 200% faster. Gold Find is reduced by 99%.

      Complete Area 75.

    • Variant 2: Strahd's Test — Widdle may have a vendetta against Strahd, but she's also eligible for his Patron variants. As such, the dark lord has set up a test for our latest Champion. At each boss level, an additional undead boss appears:
      • Area 5: Lich
      • Area 10: Zombie Adventurer

    • Variant 3: A Widdle of This, A Widdle of That — Widdle begins in the formation. She can't be moved or removed. The Base attack cooldown of all Champions is increased by 5 seconds. This increase does not affect Heroes of the Planes Champions. A Giant Rat accompanies the formation, intent on becoming friends with Widdle's pet rat Gerard. Widdle said not to hurt it.
      Getting to know Widdle: Widdle's Hurry Up Now ability grants a chance for adjacent allies to have their base attack cooldown reset after attacking. Level her up quickly to gain access to this necessary skill for this variant.

    Idle Champions: Speed Champions 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    Up to this point, Idle Champions has had five official role tags: Tanking, DPS, Healing, Support, and Gold Find. However, there’s always been an unofficial sixth tag - the 'Speed' tag - and it's about time we made that tag official.

    There’s been some debate within the community about what constitutes a Speed Champion. We’re here to put the debate to rest and introduce an official ‘Speed’ tag. Champions can receive the Speed tag for any ability that helps a player clear an area faster. This can occur in a number of ways; for example by progressing the rate of the game (Shandie), increasing the rate at which enemies spawn (Deekin), decreasing the area requirements needed to complete the area (Sentry), or skipping an area altogether (Briv), to name a few possibilities.

    Widdle will be the first Champion released with a 'Speed' tag, and with the same update we will be retroactively adding the tag to the following Champions: Briv, Deekin, Havilar, Hew Maan, Melf, Minsc, Sentry, Shandie, and Xander.

    With this in mind, we thought it would be prudent to list all Speed Champions and highlight which of their abilities qualifies them for the tag.

  • BrivUnnatural Haste — Briv has a 25% chance of sprinting forward quickly on steel-springs after completing a new area, skipping the next area entirely. This action consumes 4% of his Sprint stacks and requires at least 50 stacks to occur. When you reset the adventure, all stacks of Steelbones that Briv has gained convert into stacks of Sprint, which persist between resets until they are used by this ability. If the chance of springing forward surpasses 100%, you will have a 100% chance to skip 1 area, with the overflow counting towards your chance to skip 2 areas. If you skip a boss area in this way, the gems, chests, red jewels, etc. from it are collected automatically.
  • DeekinConfidence in The Boss — When Deekin's excitement levels are low (<5 stacks), he causes monsters to spawn 50% faster.
  • HavilarDemon Sickness: Dembo — Demons have a 50% chance of dropping two quest items or counting for two kills when killed.
  • Hew MaanTeamwork: Zrang — Enemies have a 25% chance to drop double quest items or count for double quest progress.
  • MelfMelf's Speedy Supplement — Melf provides one of the following effects at random. A new effect is chosen at random every 50 areas.
    • Increase the chance to spawn an additional enemy with each wave by 25%
    • Increase enemy spawn speed by 25%
    • Increase the chance of double quest drops by 25%
  • MinscBoastful — Whenever a non-boss enemy spawns there is a 10% chance a second enemy will spawn and a 2% chance two additional enemies will spawn. Not active in boss areas.
  • SentryCreate Echo: Echo Resolution — If Sentry wasn't attacked at any time in the current area, and the current area is your highest area unlocked when you transition to the next area there is a 30% chance that the quest requirements in that area will be reduced by 20%.
  • ShandieDash — When the formation has not come under attack for 60 seconds, Shandie speeds up the formation by 25%.
  • XanderLucky Shot — Whenever Xander lands a killing blow on an enemy, or an enemy affected by Distraction is killed, there is a 10% chance that the enemy awards double quest progress.

    • Hurry Up Now — Champions affected by Widdle's Vampiric Gaze have a 25% chance to immediately reset their base attack cooldown after they attack.
    • Tasty Friends — Champions affected by Widdle's Vampiric Gaze look extra tasty to the enemies. Each affected Champion increases the monster spawn speed by 10%, stacking additively.
    • Only As Slow As The Fastest Link — Champions affected by Widdle's Vampiric Gaze have a basic attack cooldown equal to the quickest of the affected Champions.

    Idle Champions: Farewell WebGL 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    Welcome Champions.

    We're here to announce some bittersweet news for our WebGL players as we move toward the long-running future we're envisioning for Idle Champions. As of Wednesday, December 8th, 2021 at 12 PM Pacific Time, Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms will no longer be able to be played via your browser on Kongregate, Armor Games, and CNE Games. But fear not, we’re working hard to ensure you can take your progress to another platform of your choice (details below). We’re working to make this transition as easy and seamless as possible while understanding that this process is challenging for everyone involved. As thanks for sticking with us through this process, we've crafted a unique giveaway for all Kongregate/Kartridge, Armor Games, and CNE Games players that includes $150 of in-game items.

    Before we get started, the bulk of the information below only affects players who play via their web browser on Kongregate Games, Armor Games, and CNE Games. This does not affect players on any of our other platforms. With regards to players who play via the Kartridge client, you'll still be able to play on Kartridge, and that is an option for migration. As you continue to read below please note that when we say WebGL, we mean in-browser game players on Kongregate Games, Armor Games, and CNE Games.

    We launched the WebGL in-browser version of Idle Champions two and a half years ago. Doing so required us to create a complete parallel version of the game using browser-compatible technologies, specifically WebGL and Javascript. This allowed us to accomplish our goal of having as many players as possible to join us for a grand tour of Faerûn, and we are immensely thankful for everyone who has joined us over the past few years.

    Unfortunately, as many of our WebGL players know, the rollout and continued live service of what is essentially a second version of the game has not been without issues. As we looked into resource loads and our ability to live-service the game into the future, we determined that it is no longer viable for us to continue porting Idle Champions to WebGL platforms.

    To that end, we've made the very difficult decision to sunset the WebGL version of the game at 12:00 PM Pacific Time, on Wednesday, December 8th, 2021. From that point onward, it will no longer be possible to play Idle Champions via your browser on Kongregate, Armor Games, or CNE Games. However, your progress will not be lost! We’ll be able to migrate your Idle Champions account to another platform that runs the Unity version of the game (Steam, Epic Games, Kartridge client, Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, iOS, Android, or via a new downloadable client on CNE Games). Read on to learn more about this transition.

    Giveaway

    We'd like to apologize for the challenges our players on WebGL have encountered as we continued to do our best to keep the two versions of the game up to date. As a way of thanking you for sticking with us through the bumps we've encountered, we've crafted a unique giveaway for all Kongregate/Kartridge, Armor Games, and CNE Games players that includes over $150 of in-game items. All accounts on those platforms that were created before 3 PM Pacific Time Thursday, October 20th will be credited with the items below when you next log in. Accounts created on those platforms after this date will not receive the login reward.
      Upon logging in on your WebGL platform, your account will be credited with six extra Champions: Orkira (Slot 1), Gromma (Slot 3), Briv (Slot 5), Krull (Slot 6), Birdsong (Slot 9) and Avren (Slot 11), along with 16 Gold Chests and 2 Shiny equipment cards for each of them. Additionally, you will be credited with two unique Familiars: the Gelatinous Cube, and a Pixie riding a Corgi.
    These items will migrate with your account when you move to a new platform.

    Purchasing

    As we transition off of WebGL platforms, it is still possible to play Idle Champions on those platforms, but we hope you'll migrate your account sooner rather than later. Purchasing with real money (or KREDS on Kongregate) is available until Monday, November 22nd at 12 PM Pacific Time, at which point it will no longer be possible to make purchases with your WebGL account. In-game currency, DLC, progress, and the log-in reward noted above will all be migrated to your new platform when you migrate your account (details below). Platform-specific purchasing credits (e.g. Kongregate KREDS) will not migrate to the new platform, so we suggest using those prior to migrating your account. As of Wednesday, December 8th at 12 PM Pacific Time, it will no longer be possible to play Idle Champions on WebGL platforms, but it will still be possible to migrate your account.

    To help plan your purchasing as you migrate your account, we want to be as transparent as possible about our upcoming sales. Read our Halloween Sale blog post here for more details on a sale we're launching across most of our platforms starting on Thursday, October 28th. All purchases, game progress, and in-game items will migrate with your account.

    Migrating Accounts

    It is preferable that the account you are migrating to is a new account, or if not a new account, an account that you are okay with replacing all progress/items with your WebGL accounts progress/items. Please note that it is not possible to merge accounts.

    Once you're ready to migrate your account to a new platform, there are a few steps which we've outlined below depending on your source and target platforms.
      I play on: Kongregate, Armor, or CNE Games in a browser
      I want to play on: Steam, Epic Games, Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, iOS, Android, or via the new downloadable client on CNE Games.

      1. Please log into your WebGL platform account (Kong, Armor, CNE Games). Write down your account-specific MIGRATION CODE.
      2. Download and load Idle Champions on your new chosen platform.
      3. Open the settings menu and select the 'WebGL Migration' button.
      4. Enter the MIGRATION CODE in that dialog. That’s it, you’re all set!


      I play on: Kongregate in browser
      I want to play on: Kartridge Client

      • That's easy! Kartridge uses the same login details as Kongregate, so just download the Kartridge client here and keep playing!


      I play on: CNE Games in browser
      I want to play on: CNE Games downloadable client

      • That's easy! Just download the new client here and use your same login info!

    FAQ:

      When does WebGL turn off?

      As of Wednesday, December 8th, 2021 at 12 PM Pacific Time, Idle Champions will no longer be able to be played via your browser on Kongregate, Armor Games, and CNE Games.

      How do I migrate my account?

      To migrate your account, please follow the instructions in-game on your WebGL platform or read about it here.

      Will it be possible to migrate my account after December 8th?

      Yes! You will still be able to retrieve your migration code and migrate your account. Read more on migrating your account here.

      Someone said giveaway?!

      Yes! All WebGL accounts created before 3 PM Pacific Time Thursday, October 20th will receive a unique giveaway. You can find details on it here.

      I play on Kartridge, does this affect me?

      Nope! Players who currently play on Kartridge will be unaffected by the retirement of the WebGL game. Players who play on the Kongregate browser can log in via the Kartridge client, or migrate to another platform if they wish.

    Whilst it is a bittersweet end to this chapter of Idle Champions, we want to thank all our players for their continued support and make things as smooth as possible during this transition. Idle Champions on WebGL platforms will be turned off at 12 PM Pacific Time on Wednesday, December 8th, 2021. Purchasing will be turned off at 12 PM Pacific Time on Monday, November 22nd, 2021. Thank you for your continued support and we hope you’ll continue to play Idle Champions on another platform.

    Idle Champions: Liar's Night 5 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

      "Did you hear what happened at the Wayside Inn?"
      "No -- what happened?"
      "While everyone was partying to Liar's Night they got robbed."
      "Seriously!? Who robs a party?"
      "It was 'A Masked Man', apparently."
      "What a jerk. I hope they catch him."
    The local Liar's Night festivities at the Wayside Inn were interrupted by a masked thief! They stole magical items and escaped, and now it's up to the Champions to stop them!

    Liar's Night 5 introduces Brig Hellclaw, the Rogue/Bard, played by Jason Charles Miller who you can see as Brig on Idle Champions Presents the Trials of Mount Tiamat, airing Mondays at 4PM Pacific on the CNEGames Twitch. You can also catch him on Bardic Inspiration Tuesdays at 1PM Pacific also on the CNEGames Twitch.

    This event also brings back the prolific vampire hunter, Ezmerelda d'Avenir, and the the Half-Elf Warlock/Sorcerer trickster, Avren. Players have until Monday, November 1st at 12PM Pacific to complete your Liar's Night 5 unlocks and objectives.

    New Champion: Brig Hellclaw

    Dungeons & Dragons Brig Hellclaw

      Harbinger of mayhem and music, Brig Hellclaw causes mischief anywhere he goes. As a member of The Sirens of the Realms, he's always on the lookout for the next place to perform. He prefers singing over combat, but when fighting is inevitable, he's all in! Together with his Almiraj pet Spikey, when Brig's on the loose you never know what to expect! His trusty wand of wonder could bring a curse or a boon, but it's all in another day's work for Brig!


    A Rogue, a Bard, and a Support Champion, Brig is best right in the thick of it, surrounded by allies fighting enemies. When you want to add him to your formation, you can swap him with Nayeli (Slot 3)

    II. Brig’s Stats

    Race: Human Alignment: Chaotic Good
    Class: Rogue/Bard Gender: Male
    Age: 38 Affiliation: n/a

    STR: 14 DEX: 16 CON: 12
    INT: 12 WIS: 13 CHA: 16

    Role: Suppport
    Eligible for Patrons: Mirt & Zariel
    Slot: 3 (Nayeli)


    Dungeons & Dragons Brig

    III. Brig's Design


    It's been amazing to work with Jason Charles Miller on Bardic Inspiration, who has more than two decades of professional experience in music and voice acting. He has received two Gold Record Awards, one for his Godhead song “Penetrate” featured in Queen of the Damned, and another for “The End Has Come” featured in The Punisher movie. You can hear his brilliant composing skills and dulcet tones on Bardic Inspiration Vol 1, available for free to listen to in the in-game jukebox as well as purchase and download on Steam and Epic! And now to add his character as a Champion in our game has been especially wonderful!

    Brig is the perfect addition to any bardic performance, buffing everyone in the formation with his Hype and playing a Rallying Chord to keep the energy high. While he's an amazing back up singer, when he has a chance to Solo you know he'll bring the house down!

    For more information on Brig and his abilities, check out his Champion Spotlight!

    Year Five Variants


    • Variant 1: Dueling Bards — Brig starts in the formation. He can be moved, but not removed. In each area, a duergar bard appears. The bard can only be damaged by other bards. Bard Champions deal 100% additional damage.
      Getting to know Brig Hellclaw: Brig wants to maximize his hype stacks. Keep him surrounded by other Champions that are dealing more damage to maximize his hype stacks from his Inspired Bard ability.
      Complete Area 75.

    • Variant 2: Discordant Melodies — A goblin bard joins the formation attempting to try out for the Champions, but they practiced the wrong song! Whenever they play their instrument, each Champion adjacent to them has a 50% chance to be stunned for 2 seconds. Enemies deal 200% additional damage. Gold Find and Champion Damage are reduced by 99%.
      Getting to know Brig Hellclaw: If Brig is one of your higher damage dealers, choose his Cream of the Crop Specialization. If not, choose 'Back'-Up Singer and place him in the rear of your formation to maximize his hype stacks!
      Complete Area 125.

    • Variant 3: Musical Accompaniment — An elf bard appears in each area with the Masked Man. Until the elf bard is destroyed, the Masked Man is invulnerable. Every time the elf bard attacks, the damage of the Masked Man is increased by 100%.
      Getting to know Brig Hellclaw:Brig's Critical Moment ability helps turn up the volume when you're at your wall, or in a boss area. Make sure he's ready to play when the Masked Man arrives!
      Complete Area 175.
