New Event! Alien Invasion Day 2017 

Those aliens never learn! The giant alien motherships hover into view above the freshly repainted White House, Eiffel Tower, and Big Ben. The builders in each country collectively sigh and start collecting their tools again.

The Alien Invasion Day 2017 event runs from today through to July 4th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Billy Smithsonian and Kizlyblyp, the Alien Traitor to your roster.

Kizlblyp has inspired another Crusader to leave Team Alien. Slisibyp, the Alien Scientist, has decided that joining the Crusaders will provide better opportunities for human experimentation. That's certainly what happens in the first objective when her weird alien hive-mind sees her conducting debilitating experiments on the other Crusaders until liberated after area 300.

New Crusader: Slisiblyp, the Alien Scientist.


Once recruited, Slisblyp unlocks Symbiosis which enables her to absorb 15% of non-adjacent heroes DPS and convert it to Click Damage.

At level 300, her ability Slimy makes clicked enemies move slower for 5 seconds which is renewed for each click.

The second new Tier 2 Crusader is Red, the Ace Pilot, an awesome support Crusader who can provide cover for the Crusaders in front of her.

New Crusader: Red, the Ace Pilot.

At level 50, Red unlocks Cover. Her ability increases damage done against enemies who are attacking Crusaders adjacent to or in front of her by 25%.

Red unlocks Call for Backup increases the effect of Cover by 25% for each enemy attacking her (additive for each attacking enemy, then multiplicative with the effect of Cover).

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

New Objective: Catastrophe

In Catastrophe, Meteors rain from the sky, constantly damaging your Crusaders (a meteor falls every second, dealing 20% health damage to a single Crusader per hit). Meanwhile, a cock-sure oil driller and his two lackeys take up a slots in the formation.

New Objective: Parasites.

In the objective Parasites, three alien parasites jump from slot to slot in your formation. Two red parasites reduce the DPS of Crusaders they're attached to by 100%, while a single gold parasite disables formation abilities of whoever it's attached to.

New Objective: War of the Worlds.

The final new objective is War of the Worlds. Giant invulnerable alien tripod robot enemies spawn randomly and slowly move toward the formation. When they reach your formation, they instantly kill anyone they touch.

Equipment for the Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Independence chests. You'll have until July 4th at Noon PDT to complete the event.

Update! Tier Four Talents Are Here! 

We are delighted to announce that Tier 4 Talents are finally in-game. Thanks for being patient as we worked on them behind the scenes. There was a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that went into making sure they are going to provide both a challenge and a benefit to you.

As a reminder for our new players, or for those who have yet to discover Talents, these are unique additional features and powers that are available in exchange for Idols. As ever, the criteria to unlocking the tier talents is dependent on you beating a specific area. For Tier 4 talents you're going to need to beat area 900 in any campaign!

You won't lose any DPS or Gold gains when you exchange your Idols. You'll always keep your total DPS and Gold bonuses in keeping with the number of Idols you've earned since you started playing.

You can read more about the first Talents we launched last year here, the Tier 2 update here, and the Tier 3 update here.

Also, we teased the new Talents earlier in the week here. All caught up? Good. Here are the details for the new Tier 4 Talents:

The eight new Tier 4 talents are:

Extended Spawns


(Active Tree)

Spawn Speed cards last 5% longer (5% per point for 40 levels, up to 200% longer).

Click-tasrophy


(Active Tree)

Successive clicks increase Click Damage by 1% per click up to a cap of 10% and lasts for 30 seconds from last click (10% per point for 40 levels, up to 400% more click damage).

Instant Satisfaction


(Active Tree)

Active Abilities have a 10% chance to instantly cooldown when used (10% for first point, 2% per point after that for 21 levels, up to a 50% chance).

Idle Increases


(Passive Tree)

Increases the DPS of all Crusasders by 10% if you haven't clicked a monster in the last 30 seconds (10% per point for 40 levels, up to 400% more DPS).

Legendary Benefits


(Passive Tree)

Increases the DPS of all Crusaders by 1% for each Legendary item you own (additive) (1% per point for 50 levels, up to 50% per legendary item - i.e. 1200% if you have 24 Legendaries and the talent maxed).

Idols Over Time


(Passive Tree)

Increases Idols earned on reset by 2.5% for each 2 hours since your last reset (additive) (2.5% per point for 20 levels, up to 50% more idols for each 2 hours - i.e. 600% more idols for a run that takes 24 hours).

Sprint Mode


(Utility Tree)

Sprint Mode is enabled up to area 50 on Free Play objectives. Upon entering a boss area you have 7 seconds to kill the boss; if you do, you move to the next boss area instead of the next area. (50 areas per point for 10 levels, and sprint up to area 500 when maxed).

Superior Training


(Utility Tree)

Increases the maximum Crusader level by 25 (25 levels per point for 80 points, up to a cap increase of 2000 levels)

Sneak Peak! Tier 4 Talents and Legendary Changes! 

They've been surrounded in rumor for a while, but now we're finally ready to talk about some of the upcoming Tier 4 Talents as well as some changes to certain Legendary loot. Read on to find out more!

Tier 4 Talents

One of the most common questions about Tier 4 Talents that we've seen is what area will you have to reach to unlock them. If you'll recall, you can't buy Tier 1 talents until you reach area 150. Tier 2 require 300, and Tier 3 require 600. Tier 4 Talents will continue the climb and require that you reach area 900 in any campaign before you can buy them. They will also cost a ridiculous amount of idols.

To give you a taste for the power invested in these new talents, we've going to highlight one of the new talents from each tree in this teaser blog. Are you ready?

Active Tree: Instant Satisfaction



This talent allows you to use your active abilities in rapid succession - if you're lucky! Why use Fire Storm once when twice is double as good? Maxing out the 21 levels in this talent to get a 50% chance will cost you just shy of 10,000,000 idols.

Passive Tree: Idols Over Time



The more time you take on a run, the more Idols you will earn. The bonus stacks additively and is progressive, so if you've got it maxed out at 50% for every 2 hours, you'll get 100% more idols after just four hours, 125% after five hours, and a massive 600% more after a day of idling. Great for overnight free plays or adding value to long challenging objectives! Maxing out this talent will cost you a cool 8,400,000 idols.

Utility Tree: Sprint Mode



What is Sprint Mode? Sprint mode allows you to skip between boss areas extremely quickly, assuming you can finish off the boss fast enough! If you defeat the boss and his minions within seven seconds of entering the area, you'll skip ahead five areas directly into the next boss area. This ability is only active in free play, but is definitely the creme de la creme of the new talents. Consider taking only 10 or 15 minutes to reach area 500 on your free plays? The idols will really start to pour in now. This power won't come cheap, though. Unlocking Sprint Mode up to area 500 will cost you more than 25,000,000 idols.

These new changes should allow players to reach new heights and earn idols even faster than ever before. While there is no tier 4 objective talent in this initial release, it is planned for a future update, meaning there will eventually be a whole slew of incredibly challenging objectives available for our most dedicated and voracious players.

Other Changes

We're also making some changes to the effects of several Legendary items - mainly items that increased the effects of existing formation abilities or stacked in unintended and overly powerful ways. These items will now instead provide an additive stacking buff. A full list of affected items will be released in the change log of the update.

But what if you've invested a lot of crafting material and catalysts in these items and don't find the new items to be powerful enough for your tastes? Well, we've taken care of that. You will now be able to disenchant (DE) Legendary items to recover the materials spent on them. Each DE'd legendary will return enough Common material to level them up to whatever level they were, as well as credit a free legendary craft. Free Legendary crafts do not require any catalysts, and are used automatically when you craft your next Legendary item(s).

We've also listened to players who were unhappy that Golden Legendary items used the normal Legendary name and icon, rather than special animated icons. In this update we'll make a change to all Golden Legendaries so that they use the same icon and name as the Golden Epic items that they upgrade from.

Wrapping Up

This update will also refresh players' free Talent respecs back to three. We're hoping to get this update out in the next little while, so stay tuned to the in-game news and change log over the coming weeks! Happy idling, Crusaders!

New Event! Trek Through the Hidden Temple 

You have to love big budget sequels. Montana James is back in this repeat Crusaders event, Trek Through the Hidden Temple.

This updated event runs from today through to May 30th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Montana James and Serpent King Draco to your roster.

Two new Tier Two Crusaders are also available to unlock once you've completed the Tier One objectives: Danni the Daring Damsel and Polly the Parrot.

via GIPHY

New Tier Two Crusader: Danni, the Daring Damsel

The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Danni, the Daring Damsel who doesn't need to rely on anyone else to get herself out of trouble. Even if she ends up getting in trouble a lot.

At level 100, Danni unlocks Eye Candy which buffs the DPS of all Male Crusaders by 50%.

At level 150, her ability Penny in Your Pocket increases the Gold Find +10% additively for each Male Crusader in the formation.

New Tier Two Crusader: Polly the Parrot

Polly, the Parrot, is the trusty animal sidekick who's always on hand for those comedic moments when heroes are locked in a cell and need a key. Also, he has some wicked one-liners, which kids will be quoting long after the adventure finishes. Probably.

At level 50, Polly unlocks Got a Cracker!, an ability makes monsters move 500% faster.

Polly unlocks Instant Regret at level 150 and monsters that are attacking the formation will then take extra damage.

After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Danni and Polly, there are three new side stories in the form of Tier Two objectives to complete.

New Tier Two Objective: Aliens? Really?

In Aliens? Really?, a set of alien monsters with various effects attack your formation all the way to area 400.

New Tier Two Objective: The Holy Grail.

In the objective, The Holy Grail, every 25 areas one of your Crusaders will attempt to drink from a Grail. The wrong one will permanently disable that Crusader seat past that level. You'll probably choose poorly until area 450.

New Tier Two Objective: Ghosts of the Ancients.

The final new Tier Two objective is Ghosts of the Ancients. Speedy spooky invulnerable ghosts of an ancient Mayan civilization attack your formation all the way to area 500.

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Hidden Temple Jeweled Chests. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

You'll have until May 30th at Noon PDT to complete the event.
