New Tier 3 Crusader: Chef Casey

Chef Casey is a very enthusiastic chef....but don't ask her what her stew is really made of.

At level 50, you unlock her Stew ability, where Chef Casey will randomly add one of 2 veggies to her cauldron, Carrots which add Global DPS or Potatoes which add Gold find!

At level 300, you unlock her Carnivore upgrade, which adds a choice of 2 meats to Casey's Stew line-up.

At level 600, you can help Casey finish off her stew by buying the Spice it Up upgrade, which adds 2 spices to her ingredient line-up.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Mama Kaine and RoboTurkey by completing the respective Tier One objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Paul the Pilgrim, and Petra the Pilgrim by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit Chef Casey | Chef Casey and her Stew Pot take up 2 slots. Bits of food pop out of her stew pot every 5 seconds and hit a random Crusader. That Crusader's DPS and FAs are disabled for 15 seconds. Reach area 500.

  • Get Stuffed | Food enemies attack the formation. When they are killed, a random Crusader eats them. Upon eating enough food, the Crusader becomes stuffed and has their DPS and FAs disabled. Changing areas clears all debuffs. Reach area 600.

  • Exclusive Dinner Club | Only the Bush Whacker, Thanksgiving Crusaders (RoboTurkey, Momma Kaine, Paul and Petra, and Chef Casey), and Nate Dragon can be used. Reach area 650.

  • I Like Pie | A pumpkin pie takes up a slot in the formation. Every 100 levels, another pie is added. Mmm... pie. Reach area 700.

  • Turkey Worship | A turkey takes up slot 9 in the formation and crusaders in the six slots around it rotate clockwise every 10 seconds. Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Thanksgiving Silver and Jeweled Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play 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 28th at Noon PST to complete Kaine's Dinner of Doom this year!

The Case of the Warrior in Japan 

Sasha, the Fierce Warrior, recently arrived back at the office after a trip to Japan. However, her movements and whereabouts remain a mystery which piqued the interest of Detective Kaine. His naturally inquisitive personality coupled with the secret nature of Sasha's trip are too much for Kaine to resist.

Our resident sleuth has started a journal documenting his investigation into her journey. Specifically, he has discovered that two keywords relating to her trip will unlock a jeweled chest within Crusaders of the Lost Idols.

You can follow along with Kaine's investigation as he tries to crack The Case of the Warrior in Japan by signing-up to the Idol Times newsletter. Each email will contain more clues from his notebook, of which the first pages his notes are available below.
