New Campaign: Mischief at Mugwarts  

We heard you like campaigns. Today we're launching the Mischief at Mugwarts campaign, a permanent update to Crusaders for you to play and enjoy! It features six new epic objectives and a dustpan formation designed to challenge even the most veteran player. However, the reward is a total of 1,500 precious Red Rubies if you can complete them all!

Dustpan Formation



The new campaign takes the Crusaders back to school. A magical school, no less, where students are instructed in the ways of sorcery and participate in sports involving flying cleaning tools. It could just be us, but it does sound eerily familiar.

To support the new campaign Emo Werewolf, Khouri, the Witch Doctor, Fire Phoenix, Merci, the Wizard and Wendy the Witch if you have her, get a limited time buff to greatly enhance their power, applied automatically! Can their weekend power help you through a tough objective?



As well as the automatic buff, you can purchase a unique Chest! Inside this special chest you'll find 2 pieces of gear, 1 of which is guaranteed to be Rare or better, for only those 5 Crusaders! Will you get a piece you're missing? Plus, you get 2 Trinkets and a Time Warp.

As well, your first purchase of chests will award you the awesome Black Phoenix Death Mask Golden Epic, which boosts Khouri's Koffee Potion ability by 150%!

The special buff and sale will run until Monday February 29th at Noon PST!

Check out all the new objectives in the campaign below:

New Valentine's Event! Merci's Mix-Up 

It's Valentines Day for Merci, but being a Mad Wizard can be a lonely life. Merci's decided to mend his loneliness in the only way he knows how: by mixing up a fix-all love potion! Unfortunately, while preparing his concoction he swiped left instead of right. The resulting concatenation of amorous ardour and wayward magic opened a portal to Super Love Land and beyond.

Just like your real life preparation for Valentine's Day, your mission is to complete five new objectives by using the new Heart formation and slaying legions of monsters. We're pretty sure that's how it works, right?

Rocky the Rockstar



Fittingly for the ultimate celebration of romance, we have two new Crusaders for you to entice and add to your roster. Rocky, the Rockstar, is a swirling ball of testosterone, whose raw sexual power is tempered only by his genuine charm. The Juliet to this Romeo is the second new Crusader, Sally the Succubus, the winsome demon who leaves an army of admirers in her wake.

Rocky's talents include boosting his DPS by having female Crusaders around him, starting at 25% and increasing up to a deafening 250% per lady with his normal Epic equipment, and even further to 350% with his Golden Epic.

Sally includes the ability increase her own DPS up to a maximum of +300%. However, beware of putting female Crusaders next to her as it'll reduce her DPS by 25% per fellow lady. However, her other skill boosts all female Crusaders' DPS by 20%. Can you find the perfect spot for her in your formation?

Sally, the Succubus



We also have three additional objectives. Broken Hearted requires 500 idols to play and sees the love-lorn Crusaders heart formation split in two with the three middle slots taken up by a crack.

Backstage Pass requires 1,000 idols and only allows you to choose Rocky and female Crusaders. Furthermore, two slots are taken up with Rocky's band equipment.

The final event objective, Dangerous Allure only allows your to choose Sally the Succubus and male Crusaders and requires 1,500 idols to play. In a unique twist, the slots in the formation will steadily be taken over by zombies the further you progress!

New Objective: Backstage Pass



Continuing our tradition of recognizing some of our more famous fans, this event we're honoring regular streamer, Tedessence. Ted has been with us almost since launch and has been producing a constant stream of Let's Play videos on Twitch which you can check out here.



Tedessence


You'll be able to find his avatar as a boss monster in the Valentine's Day event. Pass on our love for him by smiting him down in Crusaders' fashion.

Merci's Mix-Up event will run until February 23rd to give you plenty of time to woo those objectives into submission.

Tough New Objectives! 

You asked, and we delivered! We're launching four new objectives for our venerable campaigns: Descent into Darkness, Ghostbeard's Greed, and Grimm's Idle Tales.

Slow Descent

The Slow Descent objective in Descent into Darkness challenges you to get to area 100, but the difficulty of each area will be exponentially harder. Cue evil laugh here. It's going to require your very best DPS-boosting tactics to win using the smallest formation in game.



Cursed Treasure

Cursed Treasure in Ghostbeard's Greed is a lesson in morals. Even for pirates. Now and then you're going to have to pay a price for your looting ways and this objective features a cursed treasure chest which disables formation abilities on the adjacent Crusaders. To add insult to injury, it'll move between formation positions randomly, requiring you to regularly shuffle your Crusaders.



The Lion King

Grimm's Idle Tales receives two new objectives. In The Lion King, you're going to have the kingly task of beating area 400 while chased by hyenas. Sounds familiar, but we can't put our finger on it. Artaxes has some helpful upgrades to help you make it through though.



Holiday Hoopla

The second new objective in Grimm's Idle Tales is Holiday Hoopla. Again, you're going to have to be at your best to beat all 400 areas. More so because you're only going to have access to the event Crusaders! None of the regular Crusaders, aside from The Bush Whacker and Nate Dragon, will be available.

Good luck! You're going to need it.
