COTLI: The Hidden Temple 4 

In ages long past, Kebos was a Goddess. As the world changed and her era came to an end, she was wrapped in ceremonial linens and preserved through mummification. It is the greatest honor her people could bestow upon their goddess, hoping to bring her a peaceful rest for all time.

Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever — not even death.

Her tomb unearthed and her rest interrupted, Kebos, The Mummy has arisen to join the Crusaders for their latest journey to The Hidden Temple...

The Hidden Temple 4 introduces Kebos, The Mummy and brings back Montana James, Serpent King Draco, Danni the Daring Damsel, Polly the Parrot, and The Holy Guardian. The trek comes to a conclusion on Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Kebos, The Mummy

Kebos is an ancient goddess, preserved through mummification. Now known as Kebos, The Mummy, this undead goddess brings her supernatural power to the formation in the form of massive DPS buffs (Show Them Some Teeth, Defend the Innocent). She grows stronger with each DPS Crusader in the formation (This is a Knife!), growing stronger still as you level her up (Better with Age) and earn Trinkets (Lady of the Dead). She is also a righteous DPS Crusader, growing more powerful for each Good Crusader in the formation (The Power of Good).

When the dead start to rise, it usually means the end of days is nigh — but in this case, the Crusaders may have instead found one of their strongest allies...

Crusaders Return

COTLI: Alien Invasion 4 

You fought on the beaches, you fought on the landing grounds, you fought in the fields and the streets, you fought them in the hills, and you never surrendered...

Now, a fourth invasion has begun, here to annihilate the Crusaders and all they hold dear. But you're not alone, dear Crusaders — another alien has joined your forces! Xygallix, the Alien Mechanic is here to help you rally against Alien Invasion 4!

Alien Invasion 4 introduces Xygallix, the Alien Mechanic and brings back President Billy Smithsonian, Kizlblyp, the Alien Traitor, Slisiblyp, the Alien Scientist, Red, the Ace Pilot, and First Lady Betty Smithsonian! The invasion ends on Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Xygallix, the Alien Mechanic

When the fate of the world is at stake, the Cruaders need all the help they can get — luckily, Xygallix, the Alien Mechanic is here to Support the Formation!

Xygallix is here to increase Global DPS in every way possible. Peace Bribe and Machine Talk will increase the damage of your Formation. New Friends will buff all the non-Alien Crusaders in your formation. We Can Rebuild It increases the DPS of your formation based on the amount of Robot Crusaders in the formation, but at the cost of their health.

With Fleet Tactics, Xygallix will buff the DPS of any Crusader less than three formation slots away. And finally, Xygallix's Hourly Rate ability allows you to buy Global DPS upgrades indefinitely — though the price increases with each purchase.

You know, because mechanics always cost more than you think they will. We know, it's a bad joke ;)

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.

COTLI: Superhero Spring 4 

Ominous Voiceover: "The situation has never been more dire — certainly not last year, nor the previous two years before that. It's bad. Like, really, really bad. And, once again, it's up to the Crusaders to stop--"

Deathpuddle: "BO-RING! Lets talk about me!"

Ominous Voiceover: "--I was getting to that--"

Deathpuddle: "News flash: nobody cares! About what you're saying, I mean. What they do care about, is who the next Crusader is — and it's me, Deathpuddle!"

Ominous Voiceover: "Aren't you just a ripoff of Dead--"

Deathpuddle: "Shush, you! Okay, so players, I'm coming to the game as part of Superhero Spring 4, the latest Tier 4 Event coming to Crusaders of the Lost Idols. I'll be joining the company of such copyright infringing Event Crusaders as The Bat Billionaire, The Metal Soldierette, Arachnobuddy, Foresight, and Thoonoose — and just in time for Endgame, to boot! The party stops and I take off on April 11th at noon PDT, so be sure to unlock me and get all my stuff before then!"

New Tier 4 Crusader: Deathpuddle

Deathpuddle: "Are you wondering how good I am? Of course you are. Spoiler alert: I am awesome at everything — assuming you want everything to die, that is.

I'm a killer of things. I get better at killing things with most of my upgrades. And, if you do somehow manage to get me killed, don't worry! Death is only temporary and I come back BETTER THAN EVER.

Seriously, I'm the best. Buy me!"

Crusaders Return

Deathpuddle: "I guess if you're already here you should maybe consider unlocking some of the other Crusaders who call themselves 'heroes' but really aren't all that special. Until April 9th you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their boring objectives. The Bat Billionaire, The Metal Soldierette, Arachnobuddy, Foresight, and Thoonoose are okay in a pinch, but they're no Deathpuddle!"

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Accelerated Healing | You can only take Deathpuddle and Healer Crusaders on this adventure! Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Deathpuddle: "You can find loot in SUPERHERO CHESTS, of course! Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Superhero Spring Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or spend your sweet, sweet, money on 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. Is that all of it? Sheesh, that was a long paragraph.
