Idle Champions Event: Fleetswake 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The party is recruited by one of Waterdeep's merchant guilds to look into a number of mysterious ship disappearances over the past year. Superstitious folk blame Umberlee, but the merchant guild isn't so sure, and as the Fair Seas Festival gets underway your party begins their investigation in the Dock Ward of Waterdeep...

Fleetswake is our eighth limited-time event for Idle Champions, starting today and running until Monday, March 19th at noon PDT, and introducing Zorbu "Thunderbolt" Natten, the Gnome Ranger!

New Champion: Zorbu "Thunderbolt" Natten

Zorbu grew up in a small village on the slopes of the mountains south of Yartar. He lived a typical gnomish childhood: tinkering with mechanical toys, pulling pranks on unsuspecting neighbors, and exploring the woodlands covering the mountains in the company of a local dwarf ranger, Galor Rockshield.

A grizzled veteran of many battles, Galor was waging a secret battle against a clan of drow who were holed up in some deep caves near the village. He carefully struck from the shadows, attempting to drive them back into the Underdark. One night, after a particularly prolonged encounter, a drow scout followed Galor home, and on the night of the next new moon the drow and their minions descended upon the village in force. Galor saved Zorbu's life, but many others were killed, including Zorbu's parents. From that day forth, Zorbu trained under Galor as a ranger, vowing revenge upon the drow and any who claim allegiance to them.

Cunning and imaginative, Zorbu makes use of his tinkering skills to wield an impossibly large crossbow (named Thunderbolt, which is also Zorbu's nickname) and unleash clever mechanical traps against his foes.

When you want to add Zorbu to your party, you can swap him with Arkhan.

Fleetswake Variants

  • Thunder and Lightning — A crazy storm blows in, affecting all outdoor areas. In addition to the wind and rain, lightning strikes your formation every 5 seconds, dealing 90% of max health unavoidable damage to a random Champion. When Zorbu "Thunderbolt" Natten is hit by the effect, his next normal attack does 10x damage.

  • Crashing Waves — Only two of your formation's columns do damage at a time. Columns change every 10 areas. Start with back two (slots 4-9), then middle two (slots 2-6), then front two (slots 0-3), then front and back (0-1 & 7-9), then repeat.

  • The Shipwright's Ball — Two Shipwrights take up slots (2, 9) in the formation. The Shipwrights dance with adjacent Champions, swapping the position of two random adjacent Champions every 15 seconds (the one in slot 9 swaps 6 and 8, while the one in slot 2 swaps two of 0, 3, and 4).

Features:

  • Added the Fleetswake event, our eighth limited-time campaign event! The event will run until Monday, March 19th at noon PDT.
  • Added a new Champion: Zorbu "Thunderbolt" Natten.
  • Added a new event Divine Favor: Umberlee's Favor.

New Event! A Song of Thrones 

Our new event, A Song of Thrones, sees Queen Siri's throne of pillows under fire from enemy factions. They'll stop at nothing and no one to depose Queen Siri, so the band must recruit new Crusaders to help defend the crown.

New Crusder:
Leerion, the Royal Dwarf

New Crusader:
Brogon, Prince of Dragons

New Crusader Leerion is the youngest of his siblings with a face only a mother could love on his large, knobbly head. However, what he lacks in physical features, he makes up by being a silver-tongued charmer and a capable treasurer.

Until recruited from the first objective, he'll put his charms to use distracting any female Crusaders in the formation and debuff their DPS by 50%. Once recruited he'll use his wily intellect to increase your gold find.

The second new Crusader is Brogon, a scaly dragon that is totally yoked, brah. When he's not in the dragon gym, he's downing brewskis with his bromies. So much swag can't be contained. When the Crusaders first meet Brogon in the second objective, he's a total anti-bro. He periodically breathes fire, disrupting adjacent Crusaders by reducing their DPS by 50%.

Once you've completed the second objective, it's all bropacetic from then on, and he'll heal non-adjacent Crusaders before he brings the brocalypse by slowing the furthest enemy with his Molten Shoes ability.

The remaining three objectives include Minifinger's Debts, where the Crusaders must escort the Master of Gold to are 150. Every 1-5 minutes he randomly spends all your coins paying off the kingdom's debts requiring you to intercept the cash for upgrades or lose out.

The Flaming Lady objective is another escort mission. The night is long and full of terrors, so it's important to bring along suitable lighting. The Flaming Lady and three braziers (that's *braziers*) take up four slots. She peeks into the flames periodically, buffing and debuffing Crusaders as the flames prophesize.
The final new event objective is The White Runners. These immortal wintery monsters can't be killed. Instead, they stack-up until you're overwhelmed and wipe you out. You'll continue to kill other monsters, but it'll require your best tanking strategies to win the day.
The event will run until Tuesday May 31st at Noon PDT.
