Idle Champion Spotlight: Krydle 
Posted in Idle Champions.

A citizen of Baldur's Gate, a charming half-elf Rogue with a heart of gold, we are pleased to announce that Krydle is making his official debut on Idle Champions.

Read on to learn all about Krydle...

I. Krydle

Dungeons & Dragons Krydle

    A Charismatic Leader, a dashing thief and poet, Krydle is the quintessential rogue with a heart of gold. A resident of Baldur's Gate, Krydle rejects the upper city political machinations of his estranged father Coran, but nevertheless has familiarity of the city's nobles and their schemes, as well those of the city's criminal network. Certainly a handy chap to know...

Krydle is a DPS and Support Champion. His legendary charm buffs other Champions based on their charisma, and his Thieves Cant ability amplifies this buff for each Rogue in the party. When you want to add Krydle to your formation, you can swap him with Celeste (Slot 2).

III. Designing Krydle

We were thrilled to collaborate with Jim Zub and his vision of Krydle, as seen in the Legends Baldur's Gate comics, to bring him to Idle Champions.

We wanted his abilities to reflect his natural charm as a charismatic leader, but leaning towards his support role as we have Minsc and Delina already in the DPS role for the Baldur's Gate crowd. With this in mind, he buffs the back of the formation with his From the Shadows ability, and his charisma assists the party as a whole with his Charismatic Leader ability.

Another important aspect of Krydle's identity is his roguish side and rejection of his nobility, with this in mind we created his Thieves Cant ability to buff rogues even further - acknowledging him as a prince in the criminal world. Many of his friends and allies, like Shandie, Minsc, and Delina are already in Idle Champions and he looks forward to joining them in more adventures.

IV. Krydle's Abilities
