Idle Champions: Descent into Avernus, Part 5 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The Champions and Lulu find themselves at Fort Knucklebone with some new allies. They set off in a warmachine to find the Sword of Zariel and encounter some interesting folks along the way.

Traveling the wastelands of Avernus is never a simple or smooth journey.

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Descent into Avernus Adventures, Into the Fire and Dreamscape, in order to access these new Adventures.


Dungeons & Dragons Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus

The Path of Dreams

The Champions and their new allies catch a sweet ride to Harumann's Hill, but the journey through the wastelands of Avernus is neither uneventful nor easy...
  • Variant: The Path of Redcaps — Redcaps from Fort Knucklebone arrives to hamper your progress. Redcaps appear in each area with increased damage. Redcaps track the number of enemies destroyed. For each enemy destroyed during this adventure, the damage of all Redcaps is increased by 10% (additive).
    Reach area 350.

The Lost Hollyphant

The Champions find themself alone on Avernus and launch a rescue party for their kidnapped ally!
  • Variant: Zapper Overload — The Demon Zapper is overcharged and overloading! Only Champions with STR of 13 or higher can be used. In areas 1-40, the demon zapper is no longer targeting fiends, it's targeting interlopers that are in Avernus! Every 10 seconds, one member of the formation is zapped by the demon zapper offscreen. In addition to taking damage from the zap, Champion zapped have one of the following random effects happen to them:
    • Teleport: The Champion is removed from the formation and you are unable to use them until you change areas.
    • Sear:The Champion takes 50% more damage from the beam for each Champion adjacent to them.
    • Enfeeble:The Champion's damage drops to 0 for the next 30 seconds.
  • Reach area 375.

Idle Champions: Descent into Avernus, Part 4 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The Champions have unlocked enough of Lulu's memories to know that they must leave Elturel and travel to Fort Knucklebone.

First the Champions must figure out how to get out of Elutrel with their lives intact, not an easy feat. Once down and fought clear of the blood war, the wastelands of Avernus and their warmachines are still treacherous at best...

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Descent into Avernus Adventures, Eltruel has Fallen and Resolve Amongst Chaos, in order to access these new Adventures.


Dungeons & Dragons Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus

Into the Fire

We're in the depths of the High Hall in Elturel. Hell is all around us, and we need to find our way out and travel through the wasteland to Fort Knucklebone...
  • Variant: A Difficult Descent — Getting out of Elturel requires Strength and Dexterity. Only Champions with DEX and STR of 13 or higher can be used.
    Reach area 300.

Dreamscape

Arriving at Fort Knucklebone, we learn the ways of Avernus before starting our dream quest with Mad Maggie.
  • Variant: Dream Gauntlet — Healing is harder in Hell. Only Neutral or Good Champions may be used. Champions do not heal to full nor are they revived when advancing areas. The only way to revive or heal defeated Champions is to go back one or more areas. If you go back one or more areas in your two highest unlocked areas, enemy damage is increased by 25% stacking multiplicatively.
    Reach area 325.

Idle Champions: Descent into Avernus, Part 3 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The holy city of Elturel has been pulled into the first layer of the Nine Hells, and now floats anchored above the River Styx held in place by massive infernal chains.

Guided by Lulu the hollyphant, our Champions rally in the ruins of High Hall, seeking a way to save Elturel's survivors while besieged on all sides by the forces of darkness.

Welcome to Avernus...

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Descent into Avernus Adventures, The Darkness Runs Deeper and Difficult Terrain, in order to access these new Adventures.


Dungeons & Dragons Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus

Descent into Avernus Map

In order to access the new adventures and variants, you will need to switch from the Sword Coast map to the Avernus map. Once unlocked, you can find the Avernus map in the bottom-right corner of the Sword Coast map. Clicking on the green button in the very bottom-right corner will transport you to Avernus.


Dungeons & Dragons Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus

Elturel Has Fallen

The Champions arrive in Avernus to find the holy city of Elturel in chaos, as dark forces begin to overwhelm the city's defenses...
  • Variant: Everything is Awful — In Avernus, the food tastes like ash, the water tastes like bile, and the wine tastes like spoiled milk. But Champions need to eat! Only Champions with CON of 15+ can be used. Every 5 areas, Celeste urges the Champions to eat or drink. For the next 5 areas, the Champions are afflicted by the demoralization of forcing horrible tasting food and drink down:
    • Food tastes like Ash: The Base Attack Cooldown of all Champions is doubled.
    • Water tastes like Bile: Enemies move 20% faster and deal 200% more damage.
    • Wine tastes like Spoiled Milk: Champions collect 99% less gold.
    Reach area 250.

Resolve Amongst Chaos

Survivors of Elturel's descent into Avernus are taking refuge in the High Hall.
  • Variant: All You Know Is Wrong — Things in Avernus don't work the way they should. That much is clear. Whenever a non-boss creature dies, there is a chance they immediately respawn as a Relentless Ghoul. When they are killed, Relentless Ghouls don't disappear (nor do they spawn an additional Relentless Ghoul). Instead, after 5 seconds, they get back up and start attacking again. They do not drop gold, or count towards quest progress.
    Reach area 275.

The Darkness Runs Deeper

It's time to find out what's going on in Baldur's Gate, and there's no better place to start than in the Lower City...

    Reach area 200.

Difficult Terrain

The Champions leave the darkened streets of Baldur's Gate on a journey to the library-fortress of Candlekeep in search of answers.

    Reach area 225.

Idle Champions: Descent into Avernus 
Posted in Idle Champions.

It's time to journey into the Nine Hells!

Our latest update for Idle Champions is a massive one. In addition to launching our new Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus campaign, we are also adding new Patron Challenges, some additional Familiar Updates, a setting for Advanced Effect Descriptions, and the first three tiers of Blessings for our new campaign.

There's a lot to unpack here, and even more included in our in-game Change Log – read on to learn more!

Patron Challenges

Patron Challenges have finally arrived in Idle Champions! Players are now able to earn up to 5000 additional patron currency each week for each patron by completing their respective challenges. In fact, this amount can even be slightly increased by a Tier 4 Mirt Patron Perk(!).

New Patron Challenges appear every Monday at 12:00PM Pacific, and the set of challenges will generally be the same for all players from week to week (some challenges require specific Champions and the game will always attempt to ensure that the required Champions are ones that the player owns).

Familiar Updates

The non-gamepad/console Familiar interface has been updated in an effort to make it easier to see where they can be placed. Additionally, tooltips have been added that explain exactly what Familiars do when they are placed. Finally, we have also added the ability to assign Familiars to individual Ultimate abilities; Familiars assigned to specific Ultimates will keep that Ultimate on cooldown by attempting to click the button every second.

Advanced Effect Descriptions

Have you ever looked at your formation ability descriptions and been confused? Do you wonder how those buffs are calculated? Well we have some good news for you: in today's update we've added an Effect Description setting in the settings menu that allows you to toggle more advanced versions of formation ability descriptions.

These enhanced descriptions are more explicit about how the final bonuses are calculated, and include a standardized format for stacking type, post-stack values, post-stack multipliers, timers, and final bonuses. This has allowed us to streamline the basic descriptions as details about stacking types and buff multipliers are included in the enhanced text.

New Blessings

When the Champions begin their journey into the first layer of the Nine Hells, they won't be doing it alone – they will be blessed by earning Tiamat's Favor.

Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Blessings for the Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus campaign will go live with today's update. As you journey closer towards Tiamat's Lair in Avernus you will grow ever more powerful with The Dragon Queen...

A Tale of Two Cities

The Champions are dispatched by one of their allies on a mission to the city of Elturel, east of Baldur's Gate. What they find is beyond anything they imagined. Luckily for them, they discover a helpful ally by the name of Terminatur...
  • Variant: A Tale of Two Fiends — Two Imps take up spots in the formation, spying on the Champions during the adventure. Fiend enemies deal 200% additional damage.
    Reach area 100.

The Dead Three

Thanks to a chance encounter with Captain Zodge of the Flaming Fists, the Champions find themselves enlisted in service of the city of Baldur's Gate. Captain Zodge wants the party to investigate the seedier underbelly of Baldur's Gate...
  • Variant: Slow and Steady — Only champions with Base Attack timers of five seconds or higher may be used.
    Reach area 100.
