COTLI: The Hidden Temple 5! 

Guarding a tomb for all time might sound like an eternity of peace and quiet, but eventually some random Crusader will show up, interrupting your slumber.

On yet another daring excursion, Montana James finds himself face-to-face with a colossal stone behemoth carved in the shape of a Tyrannosaurus, with massive glowing crystals sprouting from it's back.

Luckily for Montana, Ichtaca, the Keeper has grown bored of their role of tomb guardian, and is eager to head out on an adventure.

It's time for another Trek Through the Hidden Temple! The Hidden Temple 5 runs until Tuesday, June 2nd at 12PM PDT, introducing Ichtaca, the Keeper and bringing back Kebos, The Mummy, The Holy Guardian, Polly the Parrot, Danni the Daring Damsel, Serpent King Draco, and Montana James!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Ichtaca, the Keeper

Ichtaca, the Keeper is a Crusader who specializes in boosting the potency of Orc, Supernatural, and Support-tagged Crusaders.

Mesozoic Born and Riddles and Keys boost Supernatural and Support Crusaders respectively. If your formation has any Orc Crusaders, Earthen Family will increase the DPS of Crusaders by 50% per each Orc tag in the formation.

Other upgrades include Good Stone (Increases the DPS of all Crusaders by 75%), Eternal Guardian (For every 25 levels over and including 200, DPS is multiplied by 4x), and Crystalline Veins (Increase all Gold found by 100%).

Ichtaca's final ability is Extinction Level Event, which buffs Mesozoic Born and Riddles and Keys by 100%.

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Ichtaca, the Keeper | Ichtaca, the Keeper takes up a slot in the formation. Spawn speed buffs and effects have no effect. Ichtaca, the Keeper steals 75% of your quest item drops. The Phase Skip talent doesn't apply.
    Reach area 400.

  • Second Best | Only the second Crusader on each bench seat is available.
    Reach area 450.

  • Cruise the Nile | Area quest requirements are increased by 10 fold. If you kill a monster that a Crusader has slowed, stunned or frozen, they drop 5 times as many quest items. Montana James starts in the formation and is the only Crusader who does DPS.
    Reach area 475.

  • Sahara Bound | Try to stay hydrated! Each area starts with a supply of 15 water bottles. Additional water bottles will drop from killed monsters at random. 1 water bottle is consumed every 5 seconds for each Crusader in the formation. If you run out of water, the formation wipes and goes back an area. Covetous camelcorns attack the formation and cannot be killed.
    Reach area 500.

  • Meteor Powered Portal | A goop monster takes up a spot in formation, moving every 100 areas. Crusaders adjacent to the goop have their formation abilities weakened. Additionally, every two minutes, a meteor hits your formation, removing a Crusader from formation and making them unusable for the next 15 minutes.
    Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Hidden Temple 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 Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4 and Tier 5 Crusaders will only appear in All Tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

What About Older Event Crusaders?

Previously-available Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of the Hidden Temple 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:

Players will have until Tuesday, June 2nd at 12:00PM PDT to complete The Hidden Temple 5.
