COTLI: Merci's Mix-Up 4 

The life of a Mad Wizard is a lonely one, and for Merci the Mad Wizard it is lonelier than most. This year, Merci has a plan — one sure to mend his own loneliness through the power of Love Magic!

But it appears Merci has miscalculated, accidentally opening a portal to Super Love Land — and the dangers beyond... Merci's Mix-Up 4 introduces Ishtar the Fire Queen, and brings back Rocky the Rockstar, Sally the Succubus, Warwick the Warlock, Katie the Cupid, and Frankie the Demon Crooner! The romance comes to a finish on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 12:00PM PT!!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Ishtar the Fire Queen

Legends tell of Ishtar the Fire Queen, a supernatural fertility demon who knows just how to get the most out of each and every Crusader in her formation.

Ishtar's Fertile Thoughts increase Global DPS and her Starlight increases the potency of angels and demons. Her allure knows little bounds, as she is able to attract Fire Sprites that increase Gold Find and speed up quest progress.

Female Crusaders who follow Ishtar will see improvements to their DPS, as long as they don't become too close, and when Ishtar tells Whispered Stories, Global DPS increases for every Royal Crusader in the formation. Don't worry if you cannot find enough Royal Crusaders to boost your formation, for the glorious Ishtar is able to elevate worthy Crusaders to royalty — provided they first become close to The Fire Queen...

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Rocky the Rockstar, Sally the Succubus, Warwick the Warlock, Katie the Cupid, and Frankie the Demon Crooner are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Ishtar | Ishtar the Fire Queen starts in the formation. Meteors randomly strike the formation, and if Ishtar dies, you'll need to restart the Area. Reach area 600.

  • I Put a Cantrip on You | Only The Bush Whacker, Nate Dragon, and the Crusaders from Merci's Mix-Up are available. Additional blue and green monsters spawn; killing the blue monster will cost Crusaders half their health, while killing the green one will improve Global DPS for 15 seconds. Reach area 700.

  • Fly Me to the Stars | Three 'Stars' occupy slots in the formation, changing positions every 75 Areas. Each Star disables the DPS and formation abilities of adjacent Crusaders who are not an angel, demon, supernatural, magical, royalty, or a dragon. Reach area 750.

  • My Funny Valentine Candy | Heart Candies spawn at random and are very difficult to kill. Each Heart Candy disables a random Crusader in the formation while it is alive. Reach area 800.

  • Moon Dancing | The night is dark and the moon illuminates only two Crusaders at a time. Only the illuminated Crusaders are able to do DPS. Taskmasters are disabled. Reach area 850.


Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Valentine's 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, and Tier 4 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.

You'll have until Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 12:00PM PST to complete Merci's Mix-Up 4!
February 8th, 2018
COTLI: Merci's Mix-Up 2018 

Merci the Mad Wizard has spent years looking for love, but this year will be different: Frankie the Demon Crooner is here to help! While Frankie serenades your Crusaders, you'll have plenty of time to take on the demon hordes and find Merci true love...

The Merci's Mix-Up 2018 event runs until Tuesday, February 20th at Noon PST. For more information, check out the How to Play /FAQ in-game!

New Tier 3 Crusader: Frankie the Demon Crooner

Frankie the Demon Crooner is a debonair singer like no other: when he sings nearby Crusaders are empowered, gaining a boost to their DPS, and the more quickly monsters are defeated the greater the buffs Frankie bestows – up to a limit.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Rocky the Rockstar and Sally the Succubus by completing the respective Tier One objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Warwick the Warlock and Katie the Cupid, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit Frankie the Demon Crooner | Frankie takes up a slot in the formation. His demonic singing disables the DPS of all Crusaders within 2 slots of him. He moves around the formation every 50 areas. Reach area 500.

  • Swoon | Only Frankie and female Crusaders may be used. Reach area 600.

  • Three's a Crowd | All Crusaders reduce the DPS of adjacent Crusaders by 50%, stacking additively (aka more than 1 adjacent Crusader = 0 DPS). Reach area 650.

  • Lovesickness | Every area a random Crusader is affected (if possible) by Lovesickness, which disables their DPS and Formation Abilities. It lasts for 30 seconds and spreads to an adjacent Crusader of the opposite gender every 15 seconds (2 spreads per infection). Crusaders cannot be affected by Lovesickness for 2 minutes after it expires (either from spreading or from entering a new area). Lasts through area transitions. Reach area 700.

  • Matchmaker | Every 15 seconds one female and one male Crusader are randomly chosen from those in the formation. Those are the only Crusaders who do DPS for the next 15 seconds. (protip: can force one pick if you only have one male or one female in your formation). Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Valentines Silver and 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.

You'll have until Tuesday, February 20th at Noon PST to complete the Valentines event!
