COTLI: The Hidden Temple 5! 

Guarding a tomb for all time might sound like an eternity of peace and quiet, but eventually some random Crusader will show up, interrupting your slumber.

On yet another daring excursion, Montana James finds himself face-to-face with a colossal stone behemoth carved in the shape of a Tyrannosaurus, with massive glowing crystals sprouting from it's back.

Luckily for Montana, Ichtaca, the Keeper has grown bored of their role of tomb guardian, and is eager to head out on an adventure.

It's time for another Trek Through the Hidden Temple! The Hidden Temple 5 runs until Tuesday, June 2nd at 12PM PDT, introducing Ichtaca, the Keeper and bringing back Kebos, The Mummy, The Holy Guardian, Polly the Parrot, Danni the Daring Damsel, Serpent King Draco, and Montana James!


New Tier 5 Crusader: Ichtaca, the Keeper

Ichtaca, the Keeper is a Crusader who specializes in boosting the potency of Orc, Supernatural, and Support-tagged Crusaders.

Mesozoic Born and Riddles and Keys boost Supernatural and Support Crusaders respectively. If your formation has any Orc Crusaders, Earthen Family will increase the DPS of Crusaders by 50% per each Orc tag in the formation.

Other upgrades include Good Stone (Increases the DPS of all Crusaders by 75%), Eternal Guardian (For every 25 levels over and including 200, DPS is multiplied by 4x), and Crystalline Veins (Increase all Gold found by 100%).

Ichtaca's final ability is Extinction Level Event, which buffs Mesozoic Born and Riddles and Keys by 100%.


New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Ichtaca, the Keeper | Ichtaca, the Keeper takes up a slot in the formation. Spawn speed buffs and effects have no effect. Ichtaca, the Keeper steals 75% of your quest item drops. The Phase Skip talent doesn't apply.
    Reach area 400.

  • Second Best | Only the second Crusader on each bench seat is available.
    Reach area 450.

  • Cruise the Nile | Area quest requirements are increased by 10 fold. If you kill a monster that a Crusader has slowed, stunned or frozen, they drop 5 times as many quest items. Montana James starts in the formation and is the only Crusader who does DPS.
    Reach area 475.

  • Sahara Bound | Try to stay hydrated! Each area starts with a supply of 15 water bottles. Additional water bottles will drop from killed monsters at random. 1 water bottle is consumed every 5 seconds for each Crusader in the formation. If you run out of water, the formation wipes and goes back an area. Covetous camelcorns attack the formation and cannot be killed.
    Reach area 500.

  • Meteor Powered Portal | A goop monster takes up a spot in formation, moving every 100 areas. Crusaders adjacent to the goop have their formation abilities weakened. Additionally, every two minutes, a meteor hits your formation, removing a Crusader from formation and making them unusable for the next 15 minutes.
    Reach area 525.

COTLI: Gardeners of the Galaxy 5! 

Unrelenting alien plants return, and it's up to the Gardeners of the Galaxy to stop them. It's time for a new strategy. You've fought plants with fungus, but what about fighting plants with other plants?

Enter Drosenthes, a new Crusader bringing the power of photosynthesis to your formation!

Gardeners of the Galaxy 5 runs until Tuesday, May 12th at 12PM PDT, introducing Drosenthes and bringing back Mycall the Mushroom, Rex the Wrestler, Grandmora, Spaceking, Broot, and Robbie Raccoon!


New Tier 5 Crusader: Drosenthes

Growing... consuming... Drosenthes has germinated in the beyond and brings with it a unique symbiotic relationship for the Crusaders in your formation.

Slow Digestion grants a charge for every 5 monsters killed, stacking up to 10. Once per second, if any Crusader is below 50% health, Slow Digestion consumes one stack to heal all Crusaders for 50% of their total health. This pairs with Induced Bioluminescence, which damages human and animal Crusaders for 10% of their maximum health each second while at the same time increasing Global DPS for every human and animal Crusader, stacking multiplicatively.

Drostenthes offers unique utility to your formation:
  • Endless Hunger spawns an additional monsters based on the number of monsters killed and Drosenthes' equipment.
  • Photosynthesis increases DPS for every 25 levels over and including 200.
  • Patient Hunter increases the drop rate of Quest Items.
  • Cosmic Botany increases the DPS from Induced Bioluminescence for each Flora Crusader in the formation.
  • Entomophage helps your formation to grow, boosting Global DPS.
Life, death, rebirth. Devour or be devoured. The cycle of life is embodied in no other Crusader the way it is in Drosenthes.


New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Drosenthes | Drosenthes starts in the formation. Monsters spawn slower. Monsters are much tougher. Monsters move across the screen slower.
    Reach area 400.

    Reach area 475.

  • Willowy Willows | Only Flora and Dragon Crusaders, plus Slot 1 Crusaders, can be used. Special Willow tree monsters spawn, with random effects.
    Reach area 500.

  • Hard Labor | Area difficulty increases rapidly. Crusaders take 10% of their max HP as damage for each monster killed in an area. Crusaders in the center column of the formation have their DPS and formation abilities disabled.
    Reach area 750.

New Tier 5 Crusader: Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist

Dental problem got you down? Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist is here to help! This orc may be a specialist when it comes to tusks, but tusks are just overgrown teeth, right? That's totally the same thing.

Dr Almquist increases Global DPS for each Evil Crusader with his Laughing Gas, and brings Ceiling Protectors to give an overall boost to Global DPS for the formation.

When Dr. Almquist performs a Wisdom Extraction, the first boss kills in an area will drop decayed teeth, which provide a stacking Global DPS increase that persists through adventures. Topical Numbing increases the chances for these teeth to drop.

New Tier 5 Crusader: Adina the Wonderful

Power. Grace. Wonder. Words are not quite enough to describe the latest Crusader, Adina the Wonderful.

COTLI: Hermit's Premature Party 5! 

Hermit is always extra excited at this time of year, and 2020 is no different!

As St. Patrick's Day approaches, the Washed-Up Hermit triples his efforts to provide the latest Premature Party, drawing the attention of a being ancient and wise. Inviting himself to this year's soiree is Tiernan, an angel responsible for the three realms and guiding lost souls. But this angel is no stranger to St. Patrick's Day -- in fact, he claims to have been the inspiration to Saint Patrick over 1500 years ago...

Welcome to Hermit's Premature Party 5!

This year's event runs until Tuesday, March 17th at 12PM PDT, introducing Tiernan and bringing back Ana Guinness, Saint Patroika, Squiggles the Clown, Snickette the Sneaky, Kyle the Party Bro, and Larry the Leprechaun!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Tiernan

The angel Tiernan has watched over the realms for ages, guiding souls and safeguarding the natural world.

Tír na nÓg, Seed of the Earth, and Three Realms boost the damage potential of Crusaders. Druidic Patterns propagates formation abilities on Tiernan to all Crusaders adjacent to exactly three formation slots.

Butterflies circle around Tiernan as part of Tryptych Display, which gives him his second and third Angel and Good tags.

Gold-o-rama has never been better than with Tiernan in the formation. Lost Souls improves Group DPS while Gold-o-rama is active, and Nectar Scented offers a 10% chance that when a boss is first killed in an area, the Gold-o-rama cooldown may be instantly reset.

COTLI: Merci's Mix-Up 5! 

Merci is nothing if not tenacious. After four years of trying to find a match for a Valentine's Day outing, he's still game to try and try again with help from his ever growing collection of friends.

This year he's bringing in the big guns: a professional Matchmaker!

It's time for Merci's Mix-Up 5!

Merci's Mix-Up 5 runs until Wednesday, February 26th at 12PM PST, introducing Alacrity the Matchmaker and bringing back Rocky the Rockstar, Sally the Succubus, Warwick the Warlock, Katie the Cupid, Frankie the Demon Crooner, and Ishtar!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Alacrity the Matchmaker

Alacrity the Matchmaker isn't your stereotypical demon. They're bubbly, vivacious and willing to help out your team with their skills, and some help from their impish friends.

The flow of magic in your formation will affect Alacrity with the Metamorphosis Mastery upgrade. When you have more magical than non-magical tagged Crusaders next to Alacrity, they'll change into their female self. When it's more non-magical than magical adjacent, Alacrity will switch to their male self. If there's a even amount of magical and non-magical Crusaders around them, they'll remain their bubbly Non-Binary self.

Alacrity is so friendly, that they're able to summon 3 Imp friends to help them, and you, out:
  • Summon Scamp - If Alacrity is adjacent to at least 2 Support tagged Crusaders, they'll summon Scamp. When Scamp is active, monster spawn speed is increased by 50%. This is buffed when Alacrity is in their male form, and can be buffed by their Love Meter equipment.

  • Summon Trickster - When there are at least 2 Angel or Demon tagged Crusaders in the formation, Trickster will be summoned. While Trickster is around, they'll summon a special Imp monster every 10 seconds, which counts for area progress and drop extra gold when killed. Spawns will double when Alacrity is in their Non-Binary form and you can reduce the summoning timer by collecting Alacrity's Letterhead gear.

  • Summon Scoundrel - When Alacrity is adjacent to at least 4 other Crusaders, Scoundrel will show up. Scoundrel provides the formation with a 50% global DPS buff per each adjacent Crusader, which is increased when Alacrity is female.

  • Familiarity - The imps continue to help out with this upgrade, providing an extra buff to the gold find provided for having Crusaders who share tags with Alacrity in formation.
When you want to add Alacrity to your formation, you can find them in slot 31 on the bench, swapping with Bridget and Xygallix.

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Alacrity | Alacrity is chilling out in a slot in the formation and reduces all Crusaders DPS to 0 if there are an unequal number of Male and Female Crusaders in it.
    Reach area 400.

  • Pairing Off | If any Crusaders have more than 1 Crusader adjacent to them, all DPS is zero.
    Reach area 450.

  • A Pox on Commercialism | Only Valentine's hating Crusaders are available. Check the in-game Restrictions for the list of the available Crusaders.
    Reach area 475.

  • 'Match' Maker | A fiery spirit occupies a spot in the formation. It deals damage over time to the highest and lowest DPS Crusaders in the formation, if there are two or more Crusaders in formation.
    Reach area 500.

  • Valentine's Day | A bitter heart occupies a spot in formation and disables Crusaders if you hurt its feelings.
    Reach area 525.

COTLI: Kaine's Dinner of Doom 5! 

    Seasons leaves, wilting and falling,
    now's the time: Momma Kaine's calling!
    Cold, gray, dark, wet, and gloom,
    The perfect time, for dinner of doom!

Kaine's Dinner of Doom 5 runs until Tuesday, December 3rd at 12PM PST, introducing Gemthel, the Gourmet and bringing back RoboTurkey, Momma Kaine, Paul the Pilgrim, Petra the Pilgrim, Chef Casey, and 43G1S!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Gemthel, the Gourmet

Gemthel, the Gourmet brings additional support and healing to Slot 13. She uses Rock Sirloin to boost Global DPS, she shields Crusaders with Well Fed, and her Norog Spice adds increased potency to the formation, increasing the chance that Crusaders' chance-based abilities activate by 5%.

As you level Gemthel, you unlock additional Global DPS with Pheasant Under Glass, a 4x increase in DPS for every 25 levels over 200 with Refined Tastes, and projectile attacks to Crusaders in her column with Food Fight!.

Make no mistake, this Royal Dwarven Lady is here to liven up your Dinner of Doom!

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Gemthel | Gemthel, the Gourmet takes up a slot in the formation. New steak and veggie escorts also take up slots in formation, and rotate around the formation every 25 areas. While they are adjacent to Gemthel, Gemthel provides a DPS buff; Otherwise Gemthel is hungry and debuffs the Crusaders. Legendary Effects are disabled on this objective.
    Reach area 400.

  • Grumpy Old Men | No DPS-tagged Crusaders can be used. Three grumpy escorts occupy slots in the formation, each with a preferred tag. Crusaders with a matching tag need to be adjacent to them in order to do DPS.
    Reach area 450.

  • Sweet November | A new formation should make this more of a challenge!
    Reach area 475.

  • Grindhouse | All quest areas get changed to kill 40 monsters. Monsters spawn in waves of 10, and have resistance to CLK and DPS. Invulnerable ranged enemies spawn at random.
    Reach area 500.

  • Countdown to Christmas | A sneak peak of the new Christmas Crusader occupies a slot in formation. Christmas tree monsters spawn at random, which shield other monsters and can only be damaged by projectiles. The Christmas Crusader has a special projectile attack which, if it hits a monster, prevents that monster from counting for quest progress.
    Reach area 525.
