COTLI: Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 3 

An unrelenting, enormous cosmic plant is slowly consuming the cosmos. Twice before you've faced this foe and (seemingly) won. Perhaps all you really needed was the right wrestler to step into the ring...

Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 3 runs until Tuesday, June 5th at 12:00pm PDT. For more information, check out the How to Play / FAQ in-game! I am Broot.

New Tier 3 Crusader: Rex the Wrestler

He's big, he's buff, he's shirtless and purple-skinned: Rex the Wrestler has joined Crusaders of the Lost Idols! Rex is a male support Crusader who takes trophies from slain enemies, occasionally selling them on the black market to enable buffs for the party. And did we mention the body paint? Also we're pretty sure he's invisible.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Broot and Robbie Raccoon by completing the respective Tier One objectives. I am Broot. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Spaceking and Grandmora, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit Rex the Wrestler | Rex the Wrestler takes up a slot in the formation. He moves around every 25 areas and buffs global DPS by 100% for each Champion from the Gardeners of the Galaxy event in the formation. Reach area 500.

  • Just Plain Crazy | Only those Crusaders with a penchant for insanity can be used: Hermit, Princess, Khouri, Merci, Nate, Pete, Momma Kaine, Kyle, Metal Soldierette, Broot, Robbie, Ilsa, Mindy, Cindy, Squiggles, Spaceking, Grandmora, Thoonoose, and of course, Rex. Reach area 600.

  • Mix Tape | Enemy Cassette Tapes attack the formation, each "playing" a different song debuff. Debuffs last until the cassette is killed. All cassettes survive for at least 1 second. Reach area 650.

  • Potted Garden | Three slots in the formation are taken up by potted plants, each one debuffing you in some way. Reach area 700.

  • Bug Out | Bug enemies spawn randomly, and each time one is killed, it reduces the DPS of a random Crusader by 50% for 60 seconds and creates a glowing purple cloud over them. This effect stacks additively if it the same Crusader is chosen multiple times. Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Gardeners Jeweled Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. I am Broot. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop all-tier chests. I am Broot. 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, June 5th at 12:00pm PDT to complete Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 3!

Quality of Life and Fixes Update! (May 18th, 2018)

- Quest Hubs now have their own Area Progress dialogs, and their completion is tracked on the world map.

- Added tooltips to completed quests/items/achievements on the Area Progress dialog that shows their name.

- Added the “Sonic Excavating Yard Stick” trinket to the Glaucous Quarries artifact store, which when equipped draws circles around your last 3 digs in a quarry, indicating the max possible range the treasure might be from that spot. Makes digging much easier!

- Fixed an issue with leaving the new quarry area when you have a particle emitting (flowers, etc.) custom item equipped. (Which means you’d see a “Loading Graphics... “ popup that never went away when trying to leave the quarry until you reloaded the game.)

- Added a diggergy bar toggle button, visible when you’ve got a Geo-Pick trinket equipped, that lets you show/hide the diggergy bar when you’re not in a quarry or picking up diggergy.

- Moved a normal banana by the Old Bazaar field in Cera Altepetl Proper so that it’s away from the whacking buttons.

- Fixed store item costs getting covered up if the amount was greater than 4 or 5 digits long (depending on the icon).

- Store item cost tooltips now show amount as well as name.

- Added 4 more trivia questions to the Amicus Isle Trivia Time quest (April 13th):
- “What activity can you do on Amicus Isle during the Patriot Event?”
- "On what major continent is the Snowy Mountain region?"
- "What organization did the Black Hole pet raise money for?"
- "What is the name of the Commons’ resident trinketeer?"

- Added music to the tropical island zones.

- Added the “Shiny” effect to Hellvin NPC since his player counterpart has acquired the Flux Tier 10 Super Trinket. Thanks for all the reports, Hellvin!

- Fixed various reported typos and quest descriptions. Keep the reports coming!

Spring Garden Event 2018 Update (May 11th, 2018)

- Updated the Spring Garden Event
- Added one new challenging quest
- Added new customization and ranch items
- Added new ribbons and 100% reward
- Added 3 new achievements
- Added 3 new pets available from May 18th to May 21st

- Added Treant Mount promo (Get one free with BB purchase over $10; 30% more BBs over $5)

- Fixed the Amber Orb getting left in your inventory after completing the Amber Walking Staff. Speak to Copal again in Cera Altepetl Proper to have it removed if you’ve still got one!

- Runes of Charity now require yellow, black, white, and dark grey powder vials to craft. This rune has proven very valuable, so we’ve added black and dark grey powders to its crafting costs in an attempt to rebalance it.

- Fixed diggergy causing nothings to never drop.

- Moved the Port-Co teleporter in the Glaucous Quarries so it’s not close to the Power/Mana Dig buttons when in the Deep Quarry.

- Planned a new mechanic for the quarry digging mini-game to make it easier and more fun to play. Coming Soon!

- Fixed various reported typos and quest descriptions. Keep the reports coming!

COTLI: Trek Through the Hidden Temple 2018 

It's time for another 'last crusade': Montana James is back for another Trek Through the Hidden Temple, and he'll be taking the Crusaders on an all-new adventure in search of The Holy Guardian!

New Tier 3 Crusader: The Holy Guardian

Ancient knight? Fallen angel? Whatever he may be, all you know about The Holy Guardian is that Crusaders closest to him find themselves healed far greater than those further away — and Crusaders further away have their damaged increased far more than those closest to him.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Montana James and Serpent King Draco by completing the respective Tier One objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Danni the Daring Damsel and Polly the Parrot, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Putting the "G" in Guardian | Only Crusaders with a "G" in their name are allowed in the formation. Reach area 600.

  • The Crumbling Temple | A stone falls from above and kills a random Crusader every 15 seconds in non-boss areas. Every 100 areas, the stones fall 1 second sooner. Reach area 650.

  • Temple of Inconvenience | Three mossy support pillars take up three slots in the formation. They move around every 50 areas. Reach area 700.

  • The Last Crusade(rs) | Every 40 areas a Crusader seat is locked out. Seats are locked in order from 1-28. Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Hidden Temple Jeweled Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop.
