Idle Champions Event: Feast of the Moon 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The party descends into an infamous crypt filled with the tombs of local heroes to pay homage to their deeds during the Feast of the Moon. Unfortunately, the dead are restless, rising from their slumber as undead and gathering deep in the crypt for some unknown nefarious purpose...

Fight your way through the risen heroes of yore as your party descends into the dark depths of The Crypt of Legends. Seek out whatever is responsible for this undead uprising, and put an end to it for good!

Idle Champions' latest event, Feast of the Moon, is a celebration honoring the deeds of the fallen heroes of Faerûn. This limited-time adventure runs from today until Noon PST on Tuesday, November 28th 2017, and introduces Gromma, the Tortle Druid.


New Champion: Gromma Nander

A wise Tortle matriarch, Gromma Nander is an elderly Circle of the Land Druid with nearly one hundred grandchildren. She has picked up many skills over her long life, and is able to fulfill DPS, support, or tanking roles in a formation. No matter her specialization, Gromma has a particular grandmotherly fondness for young members of any race, and will empower members of her party, with the youngest receiving the greatest boost.

When you want to add Gromma to your party, you can swap her with Nayeli.


Feast of the Moon Variants

  • Respectful Restraint — Ultimate Attacks can not be used and any attacks with a cooldown of 5 seconds or less have an additional 3 second cooldown (so a 4 second cooldown becomes 7 seconds, but a 6 second cooldown stays at 6 seconds). These lengthened attacks don't do any additional damage due to their longer cooldown.

  • The Relentless Undead — Undead monsters have 2x as much health as normal and, when they take a killing blow, they are stunned for 10 seconds before coming back to life (they still drop gold and quest items and count towards the quest each time they are killed).

  • A Grand Nandventure — Gromma Nander is forced to be in your formation. She starts at level 1 in your formation right away alongside Bruenor. She cannot be removed from the formation or swapped out of her seat. She has a 4x damage boost and her normal attack cooldown is reduced by 2 seconds.


Features:

  • Added the Feast of the Moon event, our third limited-time campaign event! The event will run until Tuesday, November 28th at noon PST.
  • Added a new Champion: Gromma, the Tortle Druid.
  • Added a new event Divine Favor: Jergal's Favor.
  • Added five new Achievements.

Tomb of Annihilation: New Variants & Upgrades 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Today Champions can take their next steps into the Tomb of Annihilation, with additional Champion upgrades and two new variants for the first two adventures, Ring of Regeneration: The Death Curse and Seeking Allies: Premature Betrayal.


New Variants!

  • The Ring of Regeneration: The Death Curse — Each time a Champion is killed, they have their damage reduced by 25% permanently for the rest of the adventure (stacks multiplicatively).

New Champion Upgrades & Balance Changes!

  • It's Not About Makos — Makos' level 55 upgrade no longer requires a specific specialization but now increases his DPS by 100% instead of 200%.

  • Too Much Ki — Stoki's level 235 upgrade which adds an extra attack target if you choose the Ki Strike specialization has been removed.

Changes:

  • When Upg is toggled, or alt+shift is pressed, and a champion is locked, it unlocks the champions before purchasing their first upgrade.
  • Updated the description of Jamilah's Frenzy ability to be more clear.
  • The formation arrows from Hitch's Friendly ability now only point to those it is affecting.

Today Champions can take their first steps towards the Tomb of Annihilation, an all-new permanent campaign! Our first Tomb of Annihilation update includes two new adventures, Ring of Regeneration and Seeking Allies, with one variant each, as well as a new Divine Favor currency: Kelemvor's Favor.

Champions who have completed at least four other Sword Coast adventures can embark on the first Tomb of Annihilation adventures from the town of Daggerford!

Two New Adventures!

  • Ring of Regeneration and Seeking Allies can both be found in the town of Daggerford, along with one new variant for each.

New Divine Favor!

  • Launching along with the first Tomb of Annihilation adventures will be a new Divine Favor, Kelemvor's Favor.
  • While you will have to earn a new Divine Favor, you will still retain all your unlocked Champions and gear heading into the Tomb of Annihilation adventures.

Changes:

  • When starting a new adventure the list of requirements now shows a check or an X next to each requirement to tell you if you meet the requirement or not.
  • Ultimate attacks' cooldown time is now displayed with 2 decimal places (if not a whole number).


Early Access Update #7 Features:

  • Adventure selection dialog now has two toggleable options to hide completed and/or locked variants from view.

Blessings and New Adventures! 
Posted in Idle Champions.

0.2.6: Early Access Update #6

A brand new feature is available today! Blessings are purchased with Divine Favor and can be used to empower your formation, letting you push even farther. The Blessings feature also includes the ability to trade in your event favor for a boost of permanent favor. In addition, we've added two new challenging adventures to the Grand Tour of the Sword Coast campaign. These new adventures come with 1 variant each and start out more difficult than the initial three adventures.

Features:

Added two new adventures:

  • Added two new adventures to the Grand Tour of the Sword Coast campaign (Terror in the Dark and Unearthed Evil), including one challenging variant for each, and Free Play

Added Divine Favor conversion system:

  • You can spend Divine Favor from temporary campaigns (events) for a burst of Divine Favor in a permanent campaign (currently only Torm's Favor from the Grand Tour of the Realm campaign)
  • The boost is increased by 20% for every 2 orders of magnitude of favor you convert. So 100 favor = 20% boost, 10,000 favor = 40% boost, 1,000,000 favor = 60% boost, and so forth. The percentage is continuous, so every bit of Divine Favor helps
  • You cannot convert your favor while you are on an adventure that awards that favor
  • You can choose to convert your favor at any time, but will be forced to convert your favor after one week (or after your first reset after one week if you are still on an event adventure)
  • The conversion system can be found within the new Blessings system (see below)

Added Blessings system:

  • You can spend Divine Favor (ie. Torm's Favor) in permanent campaigns to improve your heroes. Most of the Blessings apply only to that campaign, but several apply global buffs to all permanent and temporary campaigns
  • Divine Favor spent on Blessings will no longer count towards your gold find (or whatever other bonus the Favor may provide), so choose wisely. The game will warn you if you are spending more than 1% of your available favor on a single Blessing
  • You can reset all of your purchased upgrades in a given campaign, however only 99% of the Divine Favor you spent on the upgrades will be returned
The Blessings and Conversion systems can be accessed by a new icon in the top-left menu.

Idle Champions Now in Early Access 

VICTORIA, BC – Sept 7, 2017 - Codename Entertainment is proud to announce that Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms is now available in Early Access on Steam. Gamers and Dungeons & Dragons fans around the world can begin their quest on PC and Mac today.

Idle Champions is an idle clicker game where players must assemble and organize a party of Champions and master the art of Formation Strategy. Players unlock new Champions, upgrade them to reveal special abilities, and collect epic gear. The key to success is learning how to combine each Champion's abilities to maximize damage or the amount of gold earned. Only then can the player defeat an onslaught of increasingly powerful monsters.

As players upgrade Champions, they choose specializations to increase their power further. Specializations need deep strategic thinking by the player as one specialization may increase the power of an ability but at the cost of another ability. Choices are permanent until the player completes each adventure.

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms, the world's first idle clicker game set in the celebrated universe of the Forgotten Realms. The game is the award-winning studio's first licensed video game in partnership with Dungeons & Dragons.

Key Features:

Unlock Renowned Champions
Collect renowned Champions from the world of Dungeons & Dragons, including fan-favourites from the Force Grey series. Unlock more Champions and gear to add to your party that will be added to the game in limited-time events after launch.

Formation Strategy
Mastering the position of each Champion to maximize their special abilities is the key to completing each adventure. Each Champion's abilities and gear requires careful thought to create the best combination. Only the most powerful formations will defeat the waves of Dungeons & Dragons monsters.

Explore the Forgotten Realms
Take your Champions on a journey through the Sword Coast. Players will be able to explore familiar locations within the Forgotten Realms as they tackle each adventure. After launch, the game will be updated with content inspired by the official Dungeons & Dragons adventures, starting with a trip to Chult with the Tomb of Annihilation.

Regular Events
The game is updated regularly with limited-time events. Completing events unlocks new Champions and gear to add to the player's collection.
