Montana James dusted off his fedora before fixing back on his head. The frantic slide under the closing warehouse door almost claimed his hat for the umpteenth time. He was still clutching the tattered map of the rainforest temple as he picked himself up and ran for the waiting boat plane that would take him to deepest, darkest Peru...
"Throw me the idol; I’ll throw you the whip!"
The latest event takes our Crusaders on an adventure in the finest traditions of archeologists who also happen to be great at adventures. Yesteryear chic from the 1930s, an evil regime of bad guys and a race to recover ancient treasure in a temple in a jungle await you.
New Crusader! Recruit Montana James
The Trek Through the Hidden Temple event introduces our new square-jawed Crusader, Montana James, one of two new heroes to add to your roster. He requires rescuing himself after getting mixed up with a group of jackbooted soldiers.
For the first objective, the Crusaders will need to escort Montana to area 100 all the while being chased by soldiers who debuff all DPS and abilities for Crusaders in ever-shifting slots.
“Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?”
The second objective sees the Crusaders pitted against a scaly new antagonist called King Draco. Draco intermittently summons his snake minions to attack a random Crusader, again debuffing all DPS and abilities for 30 seconds.
New Crusader! Recruit King Draco
The remaining objectives include Daddy Says So
, where the Crusaders are saddled with the daughter of the Crusader's benefactor (the guy paying for the expedition). Unfortunately, you're also weighed down with her luggage taking up valuable slots all the way to area 150.
New Objective! Daddy Says So
Watch Out For Booby Traps
will see a random slot fall foul of the classic pit-and-spikes trap. Every 10 areas different slots will lose all the DPS and formation abilities making reaching area 200 a challenge.
The final new objective is Mali Ka
. Evil spirits (or maybe some dodgy local food) is turning the Crusaders against each other. Until you reach area 250, you'll be attacked by your own friends! Crusaders not in your formation will launch themselves at the other Crusaders intent on stopping them from finishing the objective.
Good luck, Crusaders, and before you undertake this epic adventure, take inspiration from the immortal words of Montana himself: "Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory."
The Hidden Temple event will run until June 21st at Noon PDT.
