Updated Event: Emo's New Moon 2017 

Emo's New Moon, Year 3!

Today we unveil our second Tier 3 event: Emo's New Moon! This year's event update includes a very unique new Crusader, Viktor the Vampire, whose support abilities are based upon the tags of those around him. We hope you enjoy him, and the 4 other new objectives available this year!

Emo's New Moon runs until Tuesday, November 7th at noon PST. For more information, check out the How to Play / FAQ in-game!

New Tier 3 Crusader: Viktor the Vampire

Viktor the Vampire is a buffer that converts adjacent Crusaders into vampires, granting them supernatural abilities and additional effects.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't already collected them, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Wendy the Witch and Jack O' Lantern by completing the respective 2015 objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Henry, The Scaredy-Ghoul, and Fright-o-tron 4000 and Development by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Four New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Bloody Mess | Every time a monster is killed, it leaves a blood puddle on the ground which slowly creeps towards the formation, dealing damage to the front-most Crusaders for 25% of their max hp. Reach area 600!

  • Witching Hour | Three witches on brooms take up three slots in your formation, debuffing the DPS of adjacent Crusaders. Every 100 areas they change positions. Reach area 650!

  • Infection | Every time you enter a non-boss area, one random Crusader in your formation gets an Infection, causing them to do no DPS and disabling their Formation Abilities. Every 6 seconds, the Infection spreads. Reach area 700!

  • Full Moon | Every 50 Areas the DPS of all Crusaders is reduced by 75% (multiplicative), except for Emo Werewolf, whose DPS is increased by 25% (multiplicative). Reach area 750!

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Halloween Jeweled Chests, which you can earn from objectives or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders and free play will drop all-tier chests. Gear for the Tier 2 and 3 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusader. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop.

You'll have until Tuesday, November 7th at Noon PST to complete Emo's New Moon this year!

New Weekend Buff & Tier 2 11th Objectives! 


It's time to really pump up that idol gain (again) with another set of tier 2 11th objectives! Good luck, Crusaders!

By completing the new additional Tier 2 11th Objectives in each campaign you can unlock more power for the Bonus Boss Idols feature: Bosses above area 100 may randomly drop additional idols when killed for the first time.



This update includes the last four campaigns' 11th Objectives! Enjoy!
  • Mischief at Mugwarts - Accio Difficulty: Areas gets more difficult much more quickly.

  • Idols Through Time - History Lesson: Various historic figures from history spawn and must be defeated. They each have an annoying ability.
  • Amusement Park of Doom - Too Much Candy: Candy monsters spawn. Each time one is killed, it reduces the DPS of your formation by 50%, stacking multiplicatively.

Updated Event! Carnival of Sorrows 2017  

The Carnival of Sorrows arrives in Crusaders of the Lost Idols once again, bringing twisted new objectives to complete and a new Crusader to unlock.

We are now entering our third year for Crusaders, and in order to celebrate the occasion this year’s Carnival of Sorrows is our first event featuring a Tier 3 Crusader to unlock and add to your roster.

That's on top of having the chance to add both the original Crusaders for new players to unlock as well as two Tier 2 Crusaders from last year!

New Tier 3 Crusader: Chiyome.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't already collected them, you can unlock Crusaders Pete, the Carney, and Mister, the Monkey by completing the first two Tier One objectives. Then you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Mindy, the Mime and The Half-Blood Elf by completing the first two Tier Two objectives, once you've cleared the rest of the Tier 1 objectives, and if you have the Doing It Again Talent purchased.

Four New Objectives!


New Tier 3 Objective: Be A Man.


Be A Man | Only male Crusaders and Chiyome can be used until you beat area 650.

New Tier 3 Objective: Best In Show.


Best In Show | Prized Livestock attacks the formation, each with a different ability until you beat area 650.

New Tier 3 Objective: Fair Food.


Fair Food | Your Crusaders are hungry and unable to do any damage! Luckily, a food cart in the formation is here to help, feeding two Crusaders at random every 10 seconds, causing them to become sated enough to do DPS for 20 seconds.

New Tier 3 Objective: The Creepiest Carnival.


The Creepiest Carnival | Our final new objective is The Creepiest Carnival. A Creepy Clown has taken up a slot in the formation. Every 100 areas a new clown appears, until all the slots are gone by area 800.

Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Carnival Event Chests, which you can earn from objectives or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders and free play will drop all-tier chests. Gear for the Tier 2 and 3 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusader. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop.

You'll have until October 17th at Noon PDT to complete this dark and demonic event before the Carnival packs up for another year.
