Idle Champions Event: Simril 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Simril is ruined! Someone or something has been pillaging all the food stores of Luskan, leaving very little leftover for the feast of Simril, let alone the long, cold winter to follow. Your party has been hired to hunt down this ruiner-of-holidays and recover the stolen sustenance.

Celebrating Faerûn's winter solstice with the latest Idle Champions event, Simril! This limited-time adventure runs from today until Noon PST on Monday, December 18th 2017, and introduces Dhadius the Scarlet, the Human Wizard!

New Champion: Dhadius the Scarlet!

Dhadius is a mage of legendary status and acclaim (at least, in his own mind), who sees everyone else as intellectual worms. Being an egomaniac, he seeks out esoteric lore and rare magical secrets so he may know things that the 'common fools' do not.

Dhadius hails from Luskan in the north, where he is a member of the Arcane Brotherhood, an infamous group of wizards. He joined them only recently and hasn't been taken as seriously by the others as he thinks he should be. He's determined to let is be known far and wide that he is a wizard to be respected and feared.

When you want to add Dhadius to your party, you can swap him with Calliope.

Simril Variants

  • Frightful Weather — In areas where it is snowing, your party will take 1.7% of their max health as unavoidable damage every second.

  • Light in the Darkness — Several slots in the formation are taken up by floating magical torches.

  • A Wise Endeavour — Only champions with a wisdom score of 13 or more may be used.

Features:

  • Added the Simril event, our fourth limited-time campaign event! The event will run until Monday, December 18th at noon PST.
  • Added a new Champion: Dhadius the Scarlet, the Human Wizard.
  • Added a new event Divine Favor: Shar's Favor.
  • Champion ultimate abilities now usable with numeric keypad.
  • The game is now compatible with Razer hardware – let there be lights!
  • You can now minimize the top UI using a button added to the left of the top left menu – bird hunters rejoice!

Idle Champions: Tomb of Annihilation, Part 2 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Those interested in earning the favor of Kelemvor by investigating the mysterious death curse now have two new adventures to do!

Exploring Port Nyanzaru and The Running of the Saurs are the two newest additions to the Tomb of Annihilation campaign, and each come with one additional variant. You can now take the fight to Chult, an ancient jungle peninsula shrouded in mystery, provided you have previously completed the Seeking Allies adventure.

Legendary wonders, magnificent beasts, and our most epic final battle to date await you. Good luck, adventurers! Try not to get trampled...

Exploring Port Nyanzaru

You are exploring the streets of Nyanzaru looking for clues when you are quickly sucked into some local intrigue and sent on various errands around the city while trying to find someone who knows something about the death curse or has spotted the Red Wizards lurking about.
  • Variant: Flying Monkey Skulls of Doom — Undead Flying Monkeys spawn randomly alongside normal non-boss waves. They toss monkey skulls at the formation doing normal damage, and when killed they do not award gold.

Running of the Saurs

You must fight your way "upriver" through the streets of Port Nyanzaru against a swarm of racing dinosaurs in the Chultian equivalent of the running of the bulls.
  • Variant: Dinosaur Racing — Complete area 50 within 30 minutes of starting the objective.

Features:

  • Added two new Tomb of Annihilation adventures: Exploring Port Nyanzaru and The Running of the Saurs, each with one variant.

  • Added hotkey indicators for each ultimate to the top left corner of their icons.

Features:

  • Added Kelemvor's Blessings.

  • Added in-game support for steam DLC discounts.

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

The party descends into an infamous crypt filled with the tombs of local heroes to pay homage to their deeds during the Feast of the Moon. Unfortunately, the dead are restless, rising from their slumber as undead and gathering deep in the crypt for some unknown nefarious purpose...

Fight your way through the risen heroes of yore as your party descends into the dark depths of The Crypt of Legends. Seek out whatever is responsible for this undead uprising, and put an end to it for good!

Idle Champions' latest event, Feast of the Moon, is a celebration honoring the deeds of the fallen heroes of Faerûn. This limited-time adventure runs from today until Noon PST on Tuesday, November 28th 2017, and introduces Gromma, the Tortle Druid.


New Champion: Gromma Nander

A wise Tortle matriarch, Gromma Nander is an elderly Circle of the Land Druid with nearly one hundred grandchildren. She has picked up many skills over her long life, and is able to fulfill DPS, support, or tanking roles in a formation. No matter her specialization, Gromma has a particular grandmotherly fondness for young members of any race, and will empower members of her party, with the youngest receiving the greatest boost.

When you want to add Gromma to your party, you can swap her with Nayeli.


Feast of the Moon Variants

  • Respectful Restraint — Ultimate Attacks can not be used and any attacks with a cooldown of 5 seconds or less have an additional 3 second cooldown (so a 4 second cooldown becomes 7 seconds, but a 6 second cooldown stays at 6 seconds). These lengthened attacks don't do any additional damage due to their longer cooldown.

  • The Relentless Undead — Undead monsters have 2x as much health as normal and, when they take a killing blow, they are stunned for 10 seconds before coming back to life (they still drop gold and quest items and count towards the quest each time they are killed).

  • A Grand Nandventure — Gromma Nander is forced to be in your formation. She starts at level 1 in your formation right away alongside Bruenor. She cannot be removed from the formation or swapped out of her seat. She has a 4x damage boost and her normal attack cooldown is reduced by 2 seconds.


Features:

  • Added the Feast of the Moon event, our third limited-time campaign event! The event will run until Tuesday, November 28th at noon PST.
  • Added a new Champion: Gromma, the Tortle Druid.
  • Added a new event Divine Favor: Jergal's Favor.
  • Added five new Achievements.

Tomb of Annihilation: New Variants & Upgrades 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Today Champions can take their next steps into the Tomb of Annihilation, with additional Champion upgrades and two new variants for the first two adventures, Ring of Regeneration: The Death Curse and Seeking Allies: Premature Betrayal.


New Variants!

  • The Ring of Regeneration: The Death Curse — Each time a Champion is killed, they have their damage reduced by 25% permanently for the rest of the adventure (stacks multiplicatively).

  • Seeking Allies: Premature Betrayal — Red Wizards of Thay attack your formation in all areas. There are several different variations, each with their own special properties, including increased health, increased speed, and debuffs on attacked champions.

New Champion Upgrades & Balance Changes!

  • The Party Grows Stronger — All champions have had additional high-level upgrades added. This should provide approximately 20 areas of progression to players with enough favor to access the new upgrades.

  • It's Not About Makos — Makos' level 55 upgrade no longer requires a specific specialization but now increases his DPS by 100% instead of 200%.

  • Too Much Ki — Stoki's level 235 upgrade which adds an extra attack target if you choose the Ki Strike specialization has been removed.

Changes:

  • When Upg is toggled, or alt+shift is pressed, and a champion is locked, it unlocks the champions before purchasing their first upgrade.
  • Updated the description of Jamilah's Frenzy ability to be more clear.
  • The formation arrows from Hitch's Friendly ability now only point to those it is affecting.

Introducing the Tomb of Annihilation


Today Champions can take their first steps towards the Tomb of Annihilation, an all-new permanent campaign! Our first Tomb of Annihilation update includes two new adventures, Ring of Regeneration and Seeking Allies, with one variant each, as well as a new Divine Favor currency: Kelemvor's Favor.

Champions who have completed at least four other Sword Coast adventures can embark on the first Tomb of Annihilation adventures from the town of Daggerford!

Tomb of Annihilation Update Features:



Two New Adventures!

  • Ring of Regeneration and Seeking Allies can both be found in the town of Daggerford, along with one new variant for each.

New Divine Favor!

  • Launching along with the first Tomb of Annihilation adventures will be a new Divine Favor, Kelemvor's Favor.
  • While you will have to earn a new Divine Favor, you will still retain all your unlocked Champions and gear heading into the Tomb of Annihilation adventures.

Changes:

  • When starting a new adventure the list of requirements now shows a check or an X next to each requirement to tell you if you meet the requirement or not.
  • Ultimate attacks' cooldown time is now displayed with 2 decimal places (if not a whole number).


Early Access Update #7 Features:

  • Adventure selection dialog now has two toggleable options to hide completed and/or locked variants from view.

Blessings and New Adventures! 
Posted in Idle Champions.

0.2.6: Early Access Update #6

A brand new feature is available today! Blessings are purchased with Divine Favor and can be used to empower your formation, letting you push even farther. The Blessings feature also includes the ability to trade in your event favor for a boost of permanent favor. In addition, we've added two new challenging adventures to the Grand Tour of the Sword Coast campaign. These new adventures come with 1 variant each and start out more difficult than the initial three adventures.

Features:

Added two new adventures:

  • Added two new adventures to the Grand Tour of the Sword Coast campaign (Terror in the Dark and Unearthed Evil), including one challenging variant for each, and Free Play

Added Divine Favor conversion system:

  • You can spend Divine Favor from temporary campaigns (events) for a burst of Divine Favor in a permanent campaign (currently only Torm's Favor from the Grand Tour of the Realm campaign)
  • The boost is increased by 20% for every 2 orders of magnitude of favor you convert. So 100 favor = 20% boost, 10,000 favor = 40% boost, 1,000,000 favor = 60% boost, and so forth. The percentage is continuous, so every bit of Divine Favor helps
  • You cannot convert your favor while you are on an adventure that awards that favor
  • You can choose to convert your favor at any time, but will be forced to convert your favor after one week (or after your first reset after one week if you are still on an event adventure)
  • The conversion system can be found within the new Blessings system (see below)

Added Blessings system:

  • You can spend Divine Favor (ie. Torm's Favor) in permanent campaigns to improve your heroes. Most of the Blessings apply only to that campaign, but several apply global buffs to all permanent and temporary campaigns
  • Divine Favor spent on Blessings will no longer count towards your gold find (or whatever other bonus the Favor may provide), so choose wisely. The game will warn you if you are spending more than 1% of your available favor on a single Blessing
  • You can reset all of your purchased upgrades in a given campaign, however only 99% of the Divine Favor you spent on the upgrades will be returned
The Blessings and Conversion systems can be accessed by a new icon in the top-left menu.
