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.

Dog Days of Summer 2017 Edition 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer

The residents of the Commons want to close out summer with a blast! That big old event field sits there empty most of the time anyways. Help them build an awesome temporary pool to chill out beside. Once you've completed all three building quests, the residents will come in and there will be 3 turn-in stations where you can bring Towels, Sunscreen and Life Rings to get event tokens for buying this year's custom items!

Nate's New Puppies!
Plus, foster an adorable puppy for Nate. It seems he's accidentally ordered too many dogs (again!!) and needs your help to look after them temporarily. Choose one of the 3 to help him out! Once you equip your dog, Nate has some daily quests for you to do to keep the ball of energy that is your puppy occupied. Love the look of the dog? Permanently adopt it with a simple purchase!



New for 2017!
We've added a whole new area of fun for you to experiment with. Check out the Companion Racing Track once it becomes available, and you'll be able to bet on pet races! You can only win the prizes once per day though.

Later on in the event, you'll need to help an NPC train their unlikely companion to participate in the race!
