Emo's New Moon 2016 

Halloween is here! It always makes Emo reflective on the time he was in ghoul school. Relive his memories as he tells you the tale of what makes him emo, and tackle the 2016 edition of Emo's New Moon event!

Revisit the halls of his old school and the neighbourhood he used to call home, as you help to defeat the ghouls and haunts of his past. Don't be frightened; you're likely to survive.

Tier 1 Information

If it's your first time playing through our spooktacular Halloween event, or if you are finishing up Tier 1 to unlock the Tier 2, you get to tackle these objectives in order to move on. The requirements needed to start them are listed in the brackets.
  • Moonrise With Emo (100 Candies): Recruit Wendy the Witch while she debuffs adjacent Crusaders for each monster on the screen. Wendy swaps with Prince Sal, and once she's on your team, she gets DPS from having monsters on screen.



    Wendy the Witch

  • Bring Forth the Pumpkin (700 Candies): Recruit Jack O'Lantern by clearing area 100 while Jack occupies a spot and increases the damage Crusaders ahead of him take. Once he's on your team, he swaps with Natalie Dragon and gets power from tanking enemies.



    Jack O'Lantern

  • Power of the Wyrd Sister (1300 Candies, 500 Idols): Survive the onslaught of ghouls by clearing area 150 with double the enemies, double the quest item requirements and enemies dropping less gold and quest items.

  • Pumpkin Spice Tanke (1900 Candies, 1000 Idols): Reach area 200 with caffeine-powered monsters who are eager to reach you and do some damage.

  • All New! Trick or Treat (2500 Candies, 1500 Idols): Get to area 250 while special Trick and Treat monsters randomly spawn, giving you an awesome treat or a nasty trick on their demise.



    Trick or Treat?


    Note: Since the Trick or Treat objective was just added this year, players who completed this event last year will need to do it prior to starting the Tier Two objectives, so be sure to save up 2,500 Candies before resetting to start the event!


Tier 2 Information

Once you've completed all of Tier 1 and have the Talent "Doing It Again" from the Talents shop, you are ready to get your fright on in the new objectives added for 2016!
  • The Scaredy-Ghoul (400 Candies): Recruit Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul to your roster by escorting him to area 300 while he occasionally gets spooked and reduces your DPS to 0.



    Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul


    Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul just wants to be left alone curled up in a corner with his blanket, but since you're nice enough to ask, he'll lend you his DPS power. When you swap out The Washed-Up Hermit for Henry, as long as no one is directly behind him, Henry's skill Spooked boosts his DPS by a whopping 250%.

  • Research and Development (700 Candies): Who doesn't need more robots to keep them company? Recruit the Fright-O-Tron 4000 by escorting her earlier prototypes to area 300.



    Fright-O-Tron 4000


    Swapping with the Fire Phoenix, the Fright-O-Tron 4000 can't help being scary: it's how she was made. But she'll be supportive of your Crusaders when you use her. Oogy-Boogy decreases the maximum health of the monsters, and Remote Detonation has an explosive surprise for those looking to do you harm.

  • G-g-g-ghost! (2500 Candies): Reach area 400 with killer ghosts approaching your formation. Oh, and the ghosts are invincible (real ghosts can't be touched after all.)



    G-g-g-ghost!!

  • Scared to Death (2500 Candies): It's your Crusaders turn to be scared by all the death they've caused. Reach area 450 with every monster death frightening a random Crusader. When a Crusader gets scared enough, they go catatonic!

  • Halloween Hoopla (2500 Candies): The Halloween Crusaders have decided to go out and party, to get to know each other better. They've invited Bush Whacker, Khouri, Merci and Nate along for the ride, so that they can be healed while tanking and take advantage of blowing up the world when they're done. Help this party of 8 reach area 500 on your final journey of the event.
Craving more candies? Don't forget that you can use Time Warps to acquire them!

Good luck on your journey filled with haunts and frights! The event will run until Wednesday November 2nd at Noon PDT!

New Halloween Event! 

Halloween comes early this year with our second limited time event. If you've ever wondered why Emo Werewolf is so emo, you'll have the chance to learn the legend first-hand.

You'll discover the shaggy Crusader's tortured past that includes lost love and a feud with a dead rival. And it's all set against the backdrop of teenage angst, at a high school.

Starting today and running until November 4th, the Halloween event campaign features four new objectives and two brand new Crusaders. Once you've convinced them to join your party by completing their respective objectives, you'll be able to include them in your formation.

"liek dis if u cry evry tim"



To enter the event, you must collect candies dropped by monsters when you destroy them in any objective. The first of the Halloween objectives costs 100 candies as the price of entry. Once you've saved up some candy, use Nate Dragon's "Reset the World" ability to view the event objectives.

Wendy the Witch is the first new Crusader you'll unlock. She draws power from her enemies and deals more damage the more monsters there are on the screen. Once she's on your side, she can be swapped with Prince Sal, the Merman. The second new Crusader is Jack O'Lantern, a tank that pairs well with Jason, Master of Shadows to bust down boss levels and tank up a storm. Each monster attacking him, trying to knock out his bonus health, will add a 10% DPS boost to your whole formation! He can be swapped in for Natalie Dragon.

"My enemies think to overwhelm me; they only make me more powerful"



However, it's not going to be that easy! When attempting to rescue the witch, she'll debuff the DPS of every Crusader adjacent to her for every extra monster on screen. Jack O'Lantern will make the two columns in front of him take more damage until you've recruited him to your side.

"Not so gooey after all"



One additional change we've made is to make those surplus Event Tickets more useful. If you manage to stockpile an extra 15,000 candies you can trade them for a Jeweled Halloween Chest! As a reminder, these special chests contain the exclusive gear for the two new Crusaders once you have added them to your roster.

However, take note: You can only trade surplus candies for Halloween Event Chests while the event is running (but you can continue to buy the Jeweled Halloween Chests two days after the Halloween event has finished).

Break out the holy water and stakes, dig out the pumpkin carver and silver bullets, Crusaders. You'll need to this Halloween.

The event will run until Wednesday November 4th at Noon PDT.
