New Event! A Song of Thrones 2017 

Winter is coming, but not before the Summer and Fall. Then Winter is coming. In the meantime, you can check out our A Song of Thrones event and new Tier 2 Crusaders!

The A Song of Thrones 2017 event runs from today through to July 25th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Leerion, the Royal Dwarf and Brogon, Prince of Dragons to your roster.

The two new Tier 2 Crusaders (available to recruit after you've completed Tier 1 are RoboQueen and Zombie Winter.

New Crusader: RoboQueen.


Once recruited, RoboQueen unlocks RoboFamily at level 100 and it increases her DPS +100% for every adjacent Robot.

At level 400, her ability I Like Dragons increases her DPS +400% per Dragon or Dragon family member Crusader in the formation.

Additionally, for the first time ever, RoboQueen has equipment that increases her max level past the cap. Chilling!

The second new Tier 2 Crusader is Zombie Winter.

New Crusader: Zombie Winter.

At level 50, Zombie Winter unlocks Touch of Wealth. He'll touch a random adjacent Crusader every 10 seconds, increasing gold find by 40% for 30 seconds.

At level 400, Zombie Winter unlocks Lingering Cold which causes his Touch of Wealth effect to last 50% longer.

Once you've recruited both RoboQueen and Zombie Winter, there are three new side objectives to tackle in your quest.

New Objective: Ride of the Horsefolk.

In Ride of the Horsefolk, starting in area 1 and every 50 areas thereafter a slot in the formation is taken up by a horsefolk rider, until all slots are consumed by the primitive horde.

New Objective: Continuous Coups.

In the objective Continuous Coups, the DPS of all Crusaders is reduced by 99.9%, except for four bench slots who are deemed the "Kings and Queens" of the land. The Kings and Queens receive a DPS and gold bonus as well. Every 50 areas the slots who are "Kings and Queens" change.

New Objective: Season One Rewatch.

The final new objective is Season One Rewatch. Only the base 20 Crusaders and four Crusaders from this event are available to use.

Equipment for the Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Thrones chests. You'll have until July 25th at Noon PDT to complete the event.

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.
