The Nate Before Christmas 2016 

It's that time of year again when thoughts turn to family, presents under the Christmas tree, turkey dinners, and giant twin swords to destroy unrelenting hordes of monsters.

Today we launch The Nate Before Christmas 2016 with both the original Crusaders for new players to unlock and two new Crusaders for advanced and veteran players.

As well as the repeat event and picking up RoboSanta and Frosty the Snowman if you don't already have them, players who get through the Tier One objectives will be able to tackle the more challenging Tier Two objectives. Their reward for beating them will be two new Crusaders to add to the team in the form of The Dark Elf Helper and Robo-Rudolph.


Note: Since the new 'You've Been Naughty' objective was just added this year, players who completed this event last year will need to do it before starting the Tier Two objectives, so be sure to save up 2,500 Tokens before resetting!

This new Tier One objective will see the Crusaders beset with coal monsters. These charcoal beasts reduce your gold find to zero for as long as they are on the screen and for an additional extra second after you kill them.

For the veteran or hard-working players who have completed all the Tier One objectives, the new objectives require you to purchase the Tier Two talent Do it Again in the Talents shop.

New Tier Two Crusader: The Dark Helper

Once unlocked you can tackle the five new objectives. The first of them is 'Recruit the Dark Helper.' The Dark Helper is an elf (natch) who temporarily knocks out the front two Crusaders. For 10 seconds they'll be put to sleep and reduce their DPS and disable all their formation abilities to 1 all the way to 300.

New Tier Two Crusader: Robo-Rudolph

'Recruit Robo-Rudolph' requires you escort the malfunctioning reindeer to area 300 where he will be serviced. Until you reach the workshop, he'll short circuit and debuff three random Crusaders to zero in the formation for up to 15 seconds.

New Tier Two Objective: Presents.

The 'Presents' objective is the equivalent of Christmas morning as you anxiously eye the wrapped boxes under the Christmas tree. Is that box a pair of socks or the brand new X-Station console? When you kill the present monsters, they'll randomly buff or debuff your Crusaders all the way to area 400. You won't know what the effect will be until you take the wrapping paper off.

New Tier Two Crusader: Let It Snow.

The penultimate new objective is 'Let It Snow.' Drifts of snowflakes will accumulate on random slots in the formation. The drifts will get larger and will reduce the DPS of the affected Crusaders by 1% up to a maximum of 100%. If you can dig yourself out in time and complete the area the debuff is reset to zero. You're going to need a snow shovel to make it to area 400.

New Tier Two Crusader: Robo-Christmas.

The final new objective is 'Robo-Christmas.' Only robot and Christmas-y Crusaders are available for selection to beat area 500.

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Christmas Silver and Jeweled Chests, which you can earn from objectives or buy in the shop. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

Once you have enough tickets, you'll have until December 27th at Noon PST to complete the event before the holidays will be done for another year.

The Case of the Warrior in Japan 

Sasha, the Fierce Warrior, recently arrived back at the office after a trip to Japan. However, her movements and whereabouts remain a mystery which piqued the interest of Detective Kaine. His naturally inquisitive personality coupled with the secret nature of Sasha's trip are too much for Kaine to resist.

Our resident sleuth has started a journal documenting his investigation into her journey. Specifically, he has discovered that two keywords relating to her trip will unlock a jeweled chest within Crusaders of the Lost Idols.

You can follow along with Kaine's investigation as he tries to crack The Case of the Warrior in Japan by signing-up to the Idol Times newsletter. Each email will contain more clues from his notebook, of which the first pages his notes are available below.

The Case of the Warrior in Japan


If you can solve the mystery, you can enter the code into the in-game shop to earn a free jeweled chest. Please note the code is only valid on PC/Web, but you can link your account to mobile using these instructions.

Good luck, Crusaders!

New! Idols Through Time Campaign 

We are delighted to tell you about a very special permanent campaign this week. We've partnered up with our good friends at HyperHippo Games, the creators of AdVenture Capitalist for a special addition to Crusaders of the Lost Idols.

But first, let us tell you more about your impending adventure through time. That's right; the brand new permanent campaign is all about time travel.

Our dauntless Crusaders are tasked with hunting down rogue robots that are wreaking havoc on their friend Doctor Finklebottom's laboratory. It's a desperate race to save Finklebottom's breakthrough experiments that concern matters of quantum physics and black holes that enable him to invent time travel.


Sobbing Cherubs can only be killed by clicking

His experiments have made history, figuratively and literally, as now the Crusaders can travel through time from the age of the dinosaurs all the way through to the future!

Featuring a new Flux Capacitor formation, the Idols Through Time campaign will require a minimum of 5,000 Idols to start the first objective. Things get increasingly more demanding from there as the final objective requires a whopping 10,000 Idols minimum!

The Lost in Time objective will see slots in your formation blocked with relics from each epoch you visit. In the Time-Lost Bosses objective, you'll encounter much more powerful bosses than you're used to battling.

The final two objectives are Nostalgia Trip, where only the original 20 Crusaders are available for selection (no Event Crusaders), and Lone Pine Mall where you're going to try your best to clear area 600.


Dr Finklebottom creates a wormhole to Adventure Capitalist


Dr Finklebottom's work has also had another perverse effect of linking universes. Incredibly the ingenious professor has opened a portal to a parallel universe of AdVenture Capitalist.

It's in these boom years of industrialization and economic growth the Crusaders will meet the celebrity managers from the enormously popular clicker game, AdVenture Capitalist.

It's not going to be easy to 'out-entrepreneur' history's best entrepreneurs from the 1950s, but that is what the team must do to have a chance of beating any objective between areas 71 and 85.


You have to 'out-entrepreneur' the AdVenture Capitalist managers

The popular celebrity managers W. W. Heisenbird, Jim Thorton, Forest Trump and more will all try and stop our Crusaders' money-making ways enabling them to leave for the next time zone.

But wait, there's more! We're also launching a brand new weekend buff. It's Wibbly Wobbly Wackiness here are Codename Entertainment and for the duration of the weekend, five Crusaders will be receiving massive buffs to their abilities.

The Bush Whacker, Detective Kaine, the Dark Gryphon, Sal and Bat Billionaire will all get a limited time buff applied automatically this weekend. Plus, there's a unique Wobbly chest featuring gear just for those five Crusaders!

  • The Bush Whacker - +5% increase in Critical Click Chance.
  • Detective Kaine - Increase all gold found by 100%
  • Dark Gryphon - +100% increase in DPS for all Crusaders.
  • Sal, the Merman - Increase the Base DPS for Sal +400%
  • The Bat Billionaire - +100% increase in DPS for all Crusaders.
