Updated Event! Dr. Evil's Summer Sabotage 

The Crusaders of the Lost Idols Summer Games were so popular we've decided to hold them again this year... and every year. Unfortunately, that means Dr Evil gets a chance to sabotage the event every year too!

Dr. Evil's Summer Sabotage event runs from today through to September 5th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Veronica and Bubba to your roster.

Two new Tier 2 Crusaders, The Goldhound and Milgrid, the Mining Mage, will be available to recruit after you've completed all the Tier 1 objectives and if you have the talent "Doing it Again" purchased.

New Crusader: The Goldhound.


At level 100, The Goldhound unlocks Gold Nose gives you +10% Gold Find for each monster killed, up to a cap of 200%. Plus he has gear to augment it!

At level 400, The Goldhound unlocks Tail Wag gives you +100% Gold Find for the first 15 seconds in each area.

The second new Tier 2 Crusader is Milgrid, the Mining Mage.

New Crusader: Milgrid, the Mining Mage.


Once recruited, Milgrid unlocks We've Got To Go Deeper at level 100, which will increase your DPS for all Crusaders +25% for every 50 areas you've completed.

At level 400, her ability Deepest Mining will give We've Got To Go Deeper a 100% boost!

Once you've recruited both The Goldhound and Milgrid, there are three new side objectives to tackle in your quest.

New Objective: The Great Heist.

In The Great Heist, two of Dr. Evil's masked robbers join your formation and nab quest item drops for themselves until you beat area 400.

New Objective: Gold Medal In Evil.

In the objective Gold Medal In Evil, Dr. Evil slowly replaces your formation with not-very-convincing clones of your Crusaders, each of which take up a slot and causes your global DPS to drop by 50% multiplicatively. A new clone appears in your formation every 50 areas.

New Objective: Dr. Evil Unleashed.

The final new objective is Dr. Evil Unleashed. A super powerful Dr. Evil robot spawns randomly. It attacks via a ranged laser cannon. It heals itself and all monsters and takes reduced damage.

Equipment for all the Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Games chests.

Once again, you'll have until September 5th at Noon PDT to complete the event.

Update! New Tier 2 Objectives & Weekend Buff 

It's time to give you some more challenging content and today we launch 15 new Tier 2 objectives for both the Idols Through Time and Amusement Park of Doom campaigns.

For those of you who have just joined us, we should supply you with a quick recap! First of all, you're going to need to know more about Talents, so you should read this blog post. Once you're up to speed, you'll need to use your idols to buy the Tier 2 Talent Doing It Again in the Utility tree, and hey presto! Once you've beaten any Tier 1 objective, you'll now see the new Tier 2 objectives that are available.

Here's a preview of some of the new objectives:

Don't Blink


The Cherubs now move faster than before and you have to reach area 550.

Nostalgia Trip


Only the male Crusaders from the base 20 Crusaders are available for selection.

Ferris Wheel of Doom


Every time a Crusader gets moved by the Ferris Wheel, their formation abilities and DPS are disabled for 5 seconds as they reorient themselves.

Mauled By Mascots


Each mauling mascot spawned now reduces your global DPS by 50% multiplicatively.


These are just four of the 15 new Tier 2 objectives for both Idols Through Time and Amusement Park of Doom.

To help you through the tough new Tier 2 objectives, there's a weekend buff. The following Crusaders will get a buff this weekend starting from today until 12 pm PDT on Monday August 21st.

  • Warwick the Warlock - Curse of Weakness ability +200%
  • Jason, Master of Shadows - All DPS +200%
  • Khouri the Witch Doctor - Koffee Potion ability +200%
