Idle Champions: Simril 6 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Someone outside Luskan has been pillaging the food stores in advance of this year's Simril celebration. Residents are becoming worried that there may not be enough to last the long Sword Coast winter to come!

Simril 6 introduces Warduke, the legendary mercenary for hire human fighter! Simril also brings back Yorven Springpaw, the resident murder bunny Harengon Barbarian Druid, and Lucius the High Elf Sorcerer of the High Rollers: Aerois party! Players have until Monday, December 12th at 12PM Pacific to complete their Simril 6 unlocks and objectives.

I. Warduke



    Warduke's services as a remorseless killer-for-hire can be easily bought. The evil swordsman isn't terribly bright, which is why he leaves the plotting and scheming to others. He just likes to hit things with his sword.

This deadly warrior is a Tanking and DPS Champion who grows more powerful the more he swings his sword, all while inverting the positional formation abilities of the other Champions. Once you have unlocked his services, you can swap Warduke with Delina in Slot 8. For more information on Warduke and his abilities, check out his Champion Spotlight, or watch the quick video overview linked below!

    Idle Champions: Feast of the Moon 6 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    During Feast of the Moon, residents of the Sword Coast pay homage to the deeds of legendary heroes by visiting their crypts and graves.

    When the Champions arrive at The Crypt of Legends, they find hordes of undead crawling up from the depths. Something is making the dead heroes rise, and the answer will require a descent into the depths to discover the cause...

    Feast of the Moon 6 introduces Virgil, the aasimar storm sorcerer and member of the Rivals of Waterdeep. This event also brings back two Heroes of the Planes: Penelope "Half-Pint", the Circle of the Moon Druid/Warlock, and Widdle, the dhampir gnome wizard! Players have until Monday, November 21st at 12PM Pacific to complete your Feast of the Moon 6 unlocks and objectives.

    New Champion: Virgil

    Dungeons & Dragons Virgil Brian

      With unexpected and unwelcome Celestial heritage, Virgil was always trying to get away from both his past and a disapproving family. He put his talents to work on the sea, traveling with crews who he hoped would ask nothing more than that he earn his keep by way of his magic. Eventually he grew tired of wandering and ended up in the quiet lakeside town of Caradoon, thinking he might put down roots. But that all changed when he met and fell for a kindred spirit in the form of a charming and witty Tiefling named Kent. After some over-enthusiastic handling of the local tavern's rat problem, they found themselves on the move again. Fortunately they met Selise Astorio of the Rivals of Waterdeep, and while quickly becoming entangled in the group's adventures they discovered a new family and a new home.

    Virgil is a support and speed Champion who is the master of lightning speeds! He makes the attacks of adjacent Champions faster, and speeds up progress if the formation is quickly dispatching enemies. Find out more about him and and his abilities by checking out his full Champion Spotlight!

While foggy, Champions deal no damage with ranged attacks.

    Idle Champions: Liar's Night 6 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

      "Did you hear what happened at the Wayside Inn?"
      "No -- what happened?"
      "While everyone was partying to Liars' Night they got robbed."
      "Seriously!? Who robs a party?"
      "It was 'A Masked Man', apparently."
      "What a jerk. I hope they catch him."
    The local Liars' Night festivities at the Wayside Inn were interrupted by a masked thief! They stole magical items and escaped, and now it's up to the Champions to stop them!

Players have until Monday, October 31st at 12 PM Pacific to complete their Liars' Night 6 unlocks and objectives.

    New Champion: Kent

    Dungeons & Dragons Kent Eugenio

      Kent is a former archaeologist turned adventurer whose Rogue skills and powers over death were honed by spending months making his way through the temple of Talona, where the rest of his archaeological research team was killed by traps and monsters. When he finally returned home to the lakeside town of Caradoon, he was the same outgoing, flamboyant Tiefling he had always been, but now it seemed to mask a darkness that Kent has since done his best to keep hidden. Fortunately for him, he doesn't have to bear the darkness alone, because not long after his return to Caradoon, he met smart, capable, and patient Aasimar named Virgil. Together they met up with Selise from the Rivals, and joined her and the rest of the crew in Waterdeep.

    Kent is a support and DPS Champion who collects soul trinkets representing the highest level boss defeated in each campaign, which he uses to buff himself and Champions in his column. In addition, he increases the effectiveness of your achievement bonuses for the adventure he is on. Once unlocked, you can find this tiefling rogue with Jarlaxle in Slot 4.

    Idle Champions: Highharvestide 6 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    The Savage Frontier of the Sword Coast can be a dangerous place. At the junction of the Long Road and Evermoor Way, the town of Triboar seeks the aid of heroes. Bandits have begun to assail the small town while the citizens are meant to prepare for the Highharvestide Festival...

    Highharvestide 6 sees the beginning of Year 6 Events in Idle Champions and the introduction of Egbert from the Oxventurers!

    This event also brings back D'hani, the aarakocra monk from Rivals of Waterdeep, and the intimating Minotaur Barbarian Torogar Steelfist. Players have until Monday, October 10th at 12PM Pacific to complete your Highharvestide 6 unlocks and objectives.

    I. Egbert

    Dungeons & Dragons Egbert Key Art
      Clumsy but well-meaning, Egbert the Dragonborn Paladin was summarily booted out of his Paladin order after a terrible incident he doesn’t like to talk about. Setting out on his quest for atonement with a new deity in tow, La Vache Mauve, he falls in with the Oxventurers Guild and, by his reckoning, questing with them offers as good a chance as any of guiding him towards absolution. Often impulsive, he very rarely plans beyond his initial moment of ‘inspiration’ but his heart’s in the right place. Well, at least until he next rushes into battle, trips into a spike pit and it ends up kebabbed on a skewer…

    Egbert is a Tanking, Support, Healing, and Gold Find Champion who seeks atonement after being kicked out of his Paladin order. Does he make amends for his past transgressions, or will his companions lead him astray? He can be added to the formation by swapping him out with Minsc (Slot 7).

    For more information on Egbert and his abilities, check out his Champion Spotlight Blog or the quick Video Spotlight!

    Year Six Variants


  • Variant 1: Delay Tactics - Egbert starts in the formation and can't be moved or removed. Enemies can take at most 10% of their max health per hit in damage for the first 10 seconds after they appear. Speed potions last twice as long.
    Reach Area 75

  • Variant 2: Kicked out of Le Dragon d'Or - Egbert starts in the formation, can't be moved or removed, and his Atone for the Past ability starts out unlocked. If Egbert has positive Atonement points, only Lawful Champions can deal damage. Otherwise, only Chaotic Champions can deal damage.
    Reach Area 125.

  • Variant 3: Egbert the Careless - Egbert starts in the formation and can't be moved or removed. Every 10 seconds, Egbert accidentally drops a lit bomb which bounces back and explodes, dealing a random amount of damage up to the area's number to a random Champion and anyone standing next to them.
    Reach Area 175.

    Idle Champions: The Great Modron March 5 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    A modron sighting is a rare occurrence outside Mechanus, the plane of true law.

    At least, it's supposed to be a rare occurrence -- word has it that thousands of modrons have been seen on the march in the wilderness, and they are heading towards Waterdeep!

    The Great Modron March 5 introduces Nordom a rogue modron separated from his fellow modrons, and brings back Mehen, Dragonborn Fighter and adoptive father of Farideh and Havilar of Brimstone Angels, and Jaheira, the renowned half-elf druid from Baldur's Gate. Players have until Monday, May 31st at 12PM Pacific to complete their Great Modron March 5 unlocks and objectives.

    I. New Champion: Nordom

    Dungeons & Dragons Nordom Key Art

      Modrons are the embodiment of law and order, marching in lockstep through the planes. But when Nordom Whistlklik was separated from his fellow modrons, the essence of chaos infected this rogue quadrone. Now with his crossbow-shaped gear spirits in hand, he works to fit his complex new outlook into his logical, if quirky, understanding of the planes.


    Nordom is a Support Champion who adopted his new designation when he was called a "backward modron", and now takes on his new role in the formation with all the processing power he can muster. Find out all the details about Nordom in his Champion Spotlight!

    New Party & New Modron Core


    The Great Modron March was the perfect time for some upgrades to Modron Automation. Starting May 18th, if you have at least 4 Champions in each bench slot, you can play Split The Party 3 from your Adventuring Parties screen! Completing this challenging new adventure variant will unlock a 4th adventuring party, as well as a 4th Core: the Magic Core, which is focused on increasing the damage of Champions who use magic.


    Modron Supercharge System

    Additionally, starting today in every Modron Core, any outputs that increase Champion damage can be SUPERCHARGED! Supercharging starts to kick in when at least 500 power is being delivered to an output. Every time the power doubles after that point, the effect of that output is increased 25%, stacking additively and then applying multiplicatively, with a cap of 20 stacks. Set up your core cleverly, and you can significantly boost your DPS to help complete those difficult objectives!

    New DLC and a More Chests Sale!

    Today's launch also includes 4 DLC SKUs: 3 new Skin & Feat packs (Celeste, Spurt, and Penelope) as well as a Theme Pack for Nordom! We're also kicking off a More Chests Sale for the rest of the week. Until Monday, May 23rd at Noon Pacific, get more Gold Chests, Event Chests, or Modron Chests when you pick up most Chest Packs! Check the in game store for more details!
