Idle Champion Spotlight: Duke Ravengard 
Posted in Idle Champions.

"My duty is first and foremost to the city and its people."

As a lifelong soldier of the Flaming Fist and now the Grand Duke of Baldur's Gate, Ulder Ravengard has spent his whole life serving and protecting the city. He struggles to remain committed to his ideals, even as devilish creatures seek to undermine all that he has achieved.

I. Duke Ravengard



    Ulder Ravengard is the leader of the Flaming Fist and the Grand Duke of Baldur's Gate. His primary concerns are the stability and prosperity of Baldur’s Gate, and he's been a voice of reason and common sense among the ruling council. In recent years, he has been a target of fiendish plots in unsuccessful attempts to take over the city.

Duke Ravengard is a Support Champion who bolsters those who also use Melee base attacks. The more melee attacks, the stronger his buffs become! His buffs are further increased in an area when any Melee Champion scores a critical hit. Once unlocked, he will bring his sword to your battle from seat 8 opposite Delina.

III. Duke Ravengard's Abilities

Basic Attack

Duke Ravengard has two basic attacks, the first is his normal attack and the second is when he chooses the Lead The Charge specialization.

  • Duke's Longsword - Duke Ravengard attacks the closest enemy for one hit with his longsword.
  • Duke's Longsword (after picking the Lead the Charge specialization) - Duke Ravengard attacks the closest enemy for one hit with his longsword. If he scores a critical hit, he follows-up by smashing the enemy with his shield, knocking them back a short distance.

Passive Abilities

  • Critical Hit - Duke Ravengard's base chance to Critical Hit is 20%.

Formation Abilities

  • Marshal of the Flaming Fist - Duke Ravengard gains a Command stack for each Champion with a melee base attack in the formation (including himself). Each stack increases the damage of these Champions by 400%, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Position of Power - Duke Ravengard increases the effect of the outgoing positional formation abilities of all Champions with a melee base attack by 25% for each Command stack he has, stacking additively.
  • Critical Teamwork - Whenever a Champion with a melee base attack gets a critical hit, increase the effect of Marshal of the Flaming Fist by 50% and additively increase the odds of all Champions in the formation getting critical hits by 1%. Both effects stack up to 50 times and reset when changing areas.

Specializations

  • Lead The Charge - When Duke Ravengard gets a critical hit, he follows up by bashing the enemy with his shield, knocking it back a short distance. When this occurs, all melee Champions adjacent to Duke Ravengard have their base attack cooldowns immediately reset.
  • Strength of Baldur's Gate - Champions with a melee base attack have their crit chance additively increased by 20% and crit damage increased by 1000%.
  • Legacy of Ravengard - If Wyll is in the formation, anyone affected by Wyll's Folk Hero benefit gains an additional stack, but the maximum remains at 4 stacks.

Ultimate Ability

  • Fire Shield - Duke Ravengard's magical armor ignites in flames, surrounding him in a flickering aura of magical hot flame for 20 seconds. For the duration, his attacks deal an additional 25 seconds of BUD-based damage and any enemy that makes a melee attack against the formation suffers 25 seconds of BUD-based damage as well.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Ezmerelda d'Avenir  
Posted in Idle Champions.

Those that have played through the Grand Tour adventures based in Barovia have already been introduced to Ezmerelda d'Avenir. This renowned monster hunter has been helping battle the creatures of the night since Year 4, and after a few more years of experience she's learned some new tactics. She is ready to show off her improved skillset in this reintroduction, as well as bring the new Debuff role to the formation!

I. Ezmerelda

Dungeons & Dragons Ezmerelda d'Avenir

    A prolific vampire hunter from the land of Barovia. Ezmerelda has joined the Champions to try and rid this new realm from evil. She brings a wealth of knowledge from Barovia to assist the Champions.

Ezmerelda is a Support Champion who teaches other Champions how to spot the vulnerable points of their enemies. She increases her debuffs as the Champions defeat more undead, which are her favored foe. Once unlocked she'll be in Seat 1 opposite Bruenor, ready to jump into the formation and start training!

III. Ezmerelda's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Fire Bolt - Ezmerelda hurls a mote of fire at a random enemy.

Formation Abilities

  • Training Montage - Ezmerelda marks enemies that she attacks, training other Champions to spot their vulnerable points. Marked enemies take 50% more damage from all Champions for each Debuff Champion in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Preparation - Every time a debuff is applied to an enemy, the effect of Training Montage is increased by 10%, stacking multiplicatively, up to 100 times and resetting when changing areas.
  • Threat Tracking - Undead are Ezmerelda's favored foes. Ezmerelda tracks the favored foes that any Champion kills while she is in the formation, increasing the base effect of Training Montage by 0.025% for each favored foe killed (additively then multiplicatively). These stacks persist for the entire adventure, resetting when you complete it. Caps at 100,000 favored foe kills.
  • Enemies In The Mist - While Ezmerelda is in the formation, 0-2 "Mist" enemies can spawn with each wave. When a "Mist" enemy is defeated, an enemy whose type matches one of Ezmerelda's favored foe appears from the mist, and all nearby enemies gain the Training Montage debuff.

Specializations

  • We've Trained For This - All champions deal 100% more damage against enemies with armor-based health, increasing their chance of breaking an armor piece. Additionally, if a hits-based or armor-based enemy is affected by Training Montage, successful hits against them remove an additional hit or armor piece.
  • Vampire Hunter - The effect of Training Montage is increased by 400% on enemies who are one of Ezmerelda's favored foes, and Threat Tracking counts each favored foe killed twice.
  • The Devil You Know - Increase the effect of Training Montage by 100%. The effect is doubled during Strahd patron variants.

Ultimate Ability

  • My Signal - Ezmerelda reveals a magical sun dagger and launches it at the enemy with the highest health (randomly if tied). The dagger lands in the target dealing ultimate damage, and then remains there as it begins to glow with a burst of radiant energy, creating a new debuff that lasts 10 seconds. The debuff increases the damage done to the enemy by 25% for each stack of Preparation currently active, stacking multiplicatively.

Idle Champions: Vecna Returns! 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Somehow, Vecna has returned.

The lich is back! But he's not the only Vecna in town anymore. Evil forces from across the infinite multiverses are flooding into Idle Champions - and your formations are all that can stop them!

Vecna: Eve of Ruin officially releases next Tuesday in your FLGS and the next day in Idle Champions! We are thrilled to introduce the next exciting campaign into Idle Champions, and this time your formations will travel across the multiverse!

The Story Continues


Dungeons & Dragons Venca Eve of Ruin

In the tabletop adventure, it is most likely the adventurer's first time facing off against the legendary lich - but in Idle Champions, we have already fought him in several forms! Our Vecna has been building back his power since his defeat, but he's still in no place to try and take over the multiverse. He plans to bide his time, wait for the Champions to die out, and then strike when the moment is right.

Unfortunately for him, he's not the only Vecna in town anymore...

Dungeons & Dragons Venca Eve of Ruin

In another multiverse, in another time, Vecna succeeded in reshaping reality to his will. But one multiverse was not enough for him. There are more worshippers to gain, more planes to conquer, and more Champions to kill. This is a Vecna that has not known defeat. He defeated Kas before his rival could take his eye and hand. He conquered the Sword Coast in a matter of days. Nothing that has stood in his way has survived.

In our story, this new Vecna is known as Emperor Vecna. He is the greatest threat our multiverse has ever faced, and it is up to the Champions to stop him.

Vecna: Eve of Ruin sees the return of Reya and Blooshi, continuing their stories from the last time they faced off against the lich. Joining them this time around is Sgt. Knox from the Neverwinter MMORPG, as well as Astarion from Baldur's Gate 3! They'll need to team up with Kas and the Wizards Three to hunt down the lost pieces of the fabled Rod of Seven Parts if they have any hope of stopping Emperor Vecna from destroying everything they know and love.

...But where is our multiverse's Vecna in all of this? He wouldn't just hide from his multiversal self, would he? You'll have to find out when Vecna: Eve of Ruin releases in Idle Champions on May 22nd, 2024 at Noon PT!

Vecna Emergence

Vecnas (or, as he prefers - Vecnae) are emerging from other multiverses! We have faced several forms of Vecna, and ALL OF THEM are invading the Forgotten Realms! Vecnae that appear in Free Play Adventures, as well as their original boss forms (found in the adventures: Vecna Loots!, The Castle of a Thousand Vecnas, The Sanctum of the Sword, Get Back in the Castle, Vecna Out!, and The Fortune's Wheel) will drop Corrupted Gems that can be spent in the Thayan Enclave.

The Vecna Emergence starts on May 22nd alongside the release of Vecna: Eve of Ruin and runs until May 31st at Noon PT.

Dungeons & Dragons Venca Eve of Ruin

New Items Added to the Thayan Enclave!

  • Two Golden Epics

    Idle Champion Reintroduction Spotlight: Gromma 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    We've learned a lot in the last seven years of creating Idle Champions, and the game has grown and changed quite a bit. But it's nice to know that even our oldest Champions are still doing good work in their formations. That doesn't mean they don't deserve a bit of a makeover, especially when we're talking about the second event Champion to arrive in the game! This versatile tortle has patiently waited for the youngin's to finish their fun, so now it's time to introduce the new and improved Gromma Nander!

    I. Gromma



      Extremely elderly for a Tortle, Gromma Nander grew discontent with her secluded life after giving birth to her offspring. Once they were old enough to fend for themselves, she ventured back out into the world to learn as much as she could about the strange creatures that inhabit it. Gromma is a wise and inquisitive Tortle who is quick to friendship but slow to trust. She carries a pouch of smooth colored stones that she has collected on her journey and walks with the aid of a battle-worn spear.

    Gromma is a DPS, Support and Tanking tortle who has learned how to be flexible enough to take on almost any role in the formation. She has a soft spot for "the youngins" and does her best to assist anyone younger. She's found a comfy spot in Seat 3 opposite Nayeli.

    Check out our Champion Spotlight Video embedded below for a quick overview of Gromma's abilities, and read on to get all of the details!

    II. Gromma's Stats

    Race: Tortle Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    Gender: Female Pronouns: She/Her
    Age: 80 Affiliation: None Class: Druid (Circle of the Land)

    STR: 14 DEX: 10 CON: 18
    INT: 12 WIS: 17 CHA: 13

    Role: DPS, Support, Tanking

    Eligible for Patrons: Vajra, Zariel, Elminster (available until May 1st, 2027)

    Seat: 3 (Nayeli)




    III. Gromma's Abilities

    Basic Attack

    Gromma's normal attack can change based on her specialization. She starts with Slow and Steady and changes to Melf's Acid Arrow if the Melf's Acid Arrow specialization is chosen.
    • Slow and Steady (Melee) - Gromma Nander, moving faster than you would expect for an 80 year old Tortle, stabs the closest enemy with her spear.
    • Melf's Acid Arrow (Magic) - Gromma shoots a bolt of acid at the nearest target.

    Formation Abilities

    • Hardened Shell - Gromma has a hardened shell, reducing effects of the Overwhelm debuff by 25%.
    • Grandmotherly Love - Gromma increases the damage of all other heroes proportional to their age. The buff starts applying to each Champion at 100%, and for every 10 years younger than 100 that Champion is, the buff on them is increased by 100%, stacking multiplicatively.
    • Ancient Heroism - Gromma increases the health of all other Champions by 25% of her max health.
    • Runnin' With The Youngin's - The effect of Grandmotherly Love is increased by 50% for each Champion in the formation younger than Gromma, stacking multiplicatively.

    First Specializations

    • Circle of the Mountain - Gromma increases the damage of Neutral Champions (on the Good/Evil axis) by 5% for each enemy that has spawned and boss enrage stack in the current area, stacking multiplicatively and capping at 100.
    • Circle of the Arctic - Gromma now casts Sleet Storm on enemies she attacks, causing her targeted enemy, and all nearby enemies, to take 400% additional damage from all attacks.
    • Circle of the Swamp - Gromma's damage is increased by 400% of the highest Grandmotherly Love buff she's applying to another Champion in the formation.

    Second Specializations

    • Stoneskin - Increase the effect of Hardened Shell by 100%. Enemies that attack Gromma are impaled by her spiked shell, instantly taking 10 seconds of BUD damage.
    • Entanglement - The effect of Gromma's chosen Circle specialization is increased by 100%, and enemies damaged by Gromma have their movement speed and attack speed halved.
    • Melf's Acid Arrow - Replaces Gromma's base attack with Melf's Acid Arrow, changing her into a magic attacker. After hitting its target (dealing damage) the arrow explodes, damaging its target (again) and all nearby enemies for an additional 5 seconds of BUD damage.

    Ultimate Ability

    • Wall of Stone - A wall of stone bursts up out of the ground under a random enemy. The targeted enemy and any enemies in the column that the wall appears in take damage and are knocked backwards. The wall lasts for 15 seconds, and for that time enemies cannot pass it.

    Slot 2: Global Damage
    Slot 3: Grandmotherly Love

    Gromma's Adventure Variants:

    Respectful Restraint -
    • Ultimate Attacks can not be used and any attacks with a cooldown of 5 seconds or less have an additional 3 second cooldown. These lengthened attacks don't do any additional damage due to their longer cooldown.

      • Tier 2: Complete Area 250.
      • Tier 3: Complete Area 600.

      • Tier 2: Complete Area 350.
      • Tier 3: Complete Area 800.

    Idle Champions: Greengrass 7 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    A great cosmic conflict has spilled out upon the prime material plane.

    While celebrations to mark the start of spring begin in the quaint Sword Coast town of Triboar, a Githyanki raiding party descents from above, raining destruction.

    It's up to the Champions to defend the innocent and figure out what has drawn the attention of the Gith and their Endless War. It's time for Greengrass 7!

    Greengrass 7 has arrived! It introduces Gale, the Human Wizard from the 2023 Game of the Year - Baldur's Gate 3. This Support Champion brings the might of Mystra to the Absolute Adversaries and your formations! It also reintroduces Penelope "Half-Pint", the Halfling Druid from the Heroes of the Planes. You can learn more about the rework to Penelope below. Also, you can choose three of eight previous Champions to unlock over the course of Greengrass 7!

    As a reminder: Adventure Variant information can now be found in the corresponding Champion's Spotlight. This change is being made so that all information about a Champion and their adventures can be found in one place.

    Table of Contents


    Gale

    Dungeons & Dragons Gale

      Gale of Waterdeep was a prodigious archmage, his talents earning him the attention of Mystra, the goddess of magic. At her side, he learned all that mortals might accomplish with the Weave, in time earning his place as her lover, and her Chosen. And yet, he was not satisfied. In an attempt to prove he was ready for even greater power, he accidentally unleashed 'the orb' - a highly volatile fragment of pure Weave, corrupted by Netherese magic, which buried itself in his chest. Cast out by Mystra, humbled by his downfall, he does all he can to prevent the orb's cataclysmic detonation, watching for his chance to get back everything he lost, and more.

    Gale is a support champion that buffs Champions in the two columns ahead of him and debuffs monsters the first time he attacks them. Gale will have access to all of Elminster's Patron adventures and variants, and is ready to be unlocked in the first seat opposite Bruenor.

    Learn more about Gale in our Champion Spotlight!

    Penelope

    Dungeons & Dragons Penelope Half-Pint

      Penelope "Half-Pint" is a halfling who just wants to be everyone's best friend, even if they are evil, or a plant, or a rock. With friends that already include a treant named Neverember and a clan of chwinga that have adopted her, Penelope is ready for anything! She has the heart of a true hero and will always stand by her friends...until she goes into shrub mode of course.

    Penelope is a Support, Gold Find, and Healing Champion who focuses on crowd control by slowing and debuffing enemies. She'll have her insect friends ready for when you swap her with Arkhan in seat 12.

    Learn more about the changes coming to Penelope in our Reintroduction Spotlight!

  • Events 2.0

    Event Changes

    Events 2.0 is a significant update to the events system in Idle Champions. Because players will now be able to unlock more Champions, content, and rewards through Events 2.0, we are increasing the duration of events from 12 days to 21 days. Events will typically begin on the first Wednesday of each month and run for three weeks. Content updates for Idle Champions will occur on the Wednesdays outside events.

    Along with the Event duration change we are reducing the number of annual events, shifting from 17 annual events down to 12. Long term, we plan to retire the Midwinter, Greengrass, The Running, Midsummer, and Brightswords events. However, as we transition over to the new Event 2.0 schedule, there will be a Greengrass event in April 2024.

    Quality of Life Updates

    As part of the Events 2.0 update, we are also making several quality of life updates:
    • Bounty Contracts used outside of events will award Event Tokens for the next event.
    • Event adventures, variants, and free plays no longer cost Event Tokens to start.
    • Event Tokens are now only used to purchase Event Chests directly (free plays no longer need to be grinded to obtain extra chests).
    • Event Tokens left over once an event ends will automatically be converted to Champion chests.
    • Retired Champions may come out of retirement.
    • Event Boons are granted to players who purchase specially marked event-related DLC during an event. There are four tiers of Event Boons that offer buffs to Champion Damage, Gold Find, Champion Health, Click Damage, and Speed. These buffs increase with each tier of Event Boon. Additionally, the first purchase that grants an Event Boon will also unlock the Supporter Slot.
