Idle Champions Event: Festival of Fools 
Posted in Idle Champions.

After a such long and cold winter, the citizens Daggerford are eager to celebrate the Festival of Fools: a day of feasting, drinking, and general foolishness. People don brightly-colored and garish clothing, dancing in the street like court jesters and competing with one another to see who can pull off the most foolish (yet harmless) pranks.

During the festivities a concerned villager approaches the party and asks for help. She says that her husband's prank is to try and taunt a frost giant...

Festival of Fools is our ninth limited-time event for Idle Champions, which starts today, lasts until Tuesday, April 10th at noon PDT, and introduces Strix, the Tiefling Sorcerer!

New Champion: Strix

The Sorcerer known as Strix is from Sigil, the City of Doors at the center of the multiverse. Very little is known of Strix's heritage, even to herself, but it was recently discovered that she was a powerful member of the Skizzicks family, who long ago made a pact with Asmodeus, ruler of the Nine Hells, to become Tieflings.

Strix is careful, suspicious, and paranoid. She assumes the worst in everyone and is always ready to run away or hide. She lacks basic manners and maintains poor personal hygiene, exemplified by the collection of filthy oddities she hoards within her robes, including snacks which she refers to as "snicketty snooks."

As a child, Strix witnessed a shadowy creature slaughter her friends at the bakery where she worked, but was spared for unknown reasons. Her survivor's guilt drives her to try and help those in need, no matter the personal cost.

When you want to add Strix to your party, you can swap her with Jamilah.

Festival of Fools Variants

  • Foolish Variance — Champions randomly do between 0.1% and 199.9% of their actual damage with each hit.

  • Persistent Foolishness — The Drunken Fool appears randomly in non-boss areas. Only one can be spawned at a time, but he has special abilities each time he appears.

  • Like Father Like Son — The farmer's son takes up a slot in the formation. He moves to a new slot every 25 areas. Every 15 seconds (in non-boss areas) the farmer's son foolishly summons a Frost Giant to attack the formation unless Strix is adjacent to him.

Features:

  • Added the Festival of Fools event, our ninth limited-time campaign event! The event will run until Tuesday, April 10th at noon PDT.
  • Added a new Champion: Strix.
  • Added a new event Divine Favor: Lliira's Favor.

Idle Champions: Introducing Familiars 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Introducing Familiars! Familiars can be purchased for gems or real money and assigned to specific tasks, such as clicking enemies, leveling up Champions, or using ultimate abilities. There are six Familiars available to purchase: three for gems and three more via DLC. They all function the same, though. Check out the in-game Change Log for more details.

Familiars unlock once you have reached Area 66 in any campaign (for most existing players they will become available right away). The cheapest Familiar costs 1,000 gems while the most expensive costs 50,000 gems.

Features

  • Familiars have been added to the game. Familiars can be purchased for gems and real money and assigned to specific tasks, such as clicking enemies, leveling up champions, or using ultimates.
  • Three familiars are available to purchase for gems for 1,000, 10,000, and 50,000 gems each.
  • Three familiars are available in DLC packs which also include a variety of potions and blacksmithing contracts.
  • Familiars click at different rates depending on the task they're assigned to:
    • Clicking monsters: 5 clicks per second; if 3 or more familiars are assigned to click they will also automatically pick up gold and quest items.
    • Leveling champions/click damage: 1 click per second.
    • Using ultimates: 1 click per 30 seconds.

Balance Changes

  • The gem rewards for completing adventures have been drastically increased.
  • All players who have previously completed adventures with updated gem rewards have had the gem difference credited to their accounts. In total 8,200 extra gems are up for grabs if you've completed all of the available adventures and variants (enough to buy 16+ gold chests).

New Tier 3 Crusader: Biff the Magic Rabbit

Well looky what we have here: Biff the Magic Rabbit is an AoE DPS who tosses massive carrots at enemies. He'll be the most muscular Magic Rabbit in your formation, we guarantee it!

Note: Biff is not smarter than your average magic rabbit.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Alan the Archangel and RoboRabbit by completing the respective Tier One objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Baenarall, Angel of Hope and Sisaron the Dragon Sorceress, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit Biff the Magic Rabbit | Biff takes up a slot and disables the DPS of adjacent Crusaders with his massive intimidating muscles. Every 10 seconds a giant carrot drops from the sky, killing a random Crusader. Reach area 500.

  • Magical Companions | A magic dragon and a magic unicorn take up two slots. Every 15 seconds, a random Crusader who is adjacent to the Magic Dragon swaps places with a random Crusader who is adjacent to the Magic Unicorn. Reach area 600.

  • McFly! | Only Biff and the 20 original Crusaders can be used. A nerdy looking nerd named McFly takes up a slot in the formation and slowly disappears (turns transparent) over 30 seconds. If he completely disappears, you wipe and go back one area. Reach area 650.

  • Pow! Bam! Crash! | Every time a regular enemy is killed it spawns an exciting onomatopoeia monster. Reach area 700.

  • Egg Hunt | The Easter bunny takes up a slot in the formation and special Easter Egg enemies spawn. Each time a special Easter Egg is killed the Easter Bunny collects it. When he has found 5 eggs he randomly scrambles your formation and then starts counting from 0 again. Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Easter 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, April 3rd at Noon PDT to complete the Nate's Candy Conundrum 2018!

Idle Champions: Tomb of Annihilation, Part 4 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Now that you have made your way from Port Nyanzaru to Camp Vengeance, it's time to head to the ancient cliffside monastery of Kir Sabal, where the Aarakocra may be able to help you to reach the Lost City of Omu...

Note: To start these new adventures, you need to have completed the Rescue in the Jungle adventure.

Homecoming

The party is making their way through the jungle to the ancient monastery of Kir Sabal, home of Asharra and the Aarakocra of Chult. During the journey the party is endlessly assaulted by undead terrors emerging from the jungle, and arrives at a Kir Sabal under attack by Gargoyles.

Complete Homecoming to unlock the variant Anti-Dexterous Explorers, where only Champions with a DEX score of 14 or lower can be used, as well as the next adventure.

The Lost Heir of Omu

The Aarakocra of Kir Sabal will help the party to reach Omu if you save Princess Mwaxanaré, the rightful heir to Omu's throne, who has been kidnapped by pirates based out of the abandoned Port Castiliar.

Not Very Charming is the variant you unlock upon completion of The Lost Heir of Omu. Only Champions with a CHA score of 14 or lower can be used.

Features:

  • Added two new Tomb of Annihilation adventures: Homecoming and The Lost Heir of Omu, each with one variant. The first one, Homecoming, starts in Camp Vengeance; these are very challenging adventures and variants. Not for the faint of heart!
