Idle Champions: Ahghairon's Day 5 
Posted in Idle Champions.

It's the day before Shieldmeet and the Open Lord of Waterdeep has gone missing. Nobody has seen Laeral Silverhand in days and it is imperative that she be found before the meeting with the Masked Lords begins.

At the behest of the Blackstaff, the Champions are sent to discover what happened...

Ahghairon's Day 5 introduces and brings back Prudence, the Chaotic Evil Tiefling Warlock of the Oxventurer's Guild, and Omin Dran, CEO and founder of Acquisitions Incorporated. Players have until Monday, August 22nd at 12PM PDT to complete their event unlocks and objectives.

I. New Champion: Voronika

Dungeons & Dragons Voronika Key Art
    This young Eladrin woman was raised to be the Queen of Koshmarr. What was meant to be an idyllic life took a dark turn when she was killed on the night of her wedding. But Voronika didn't let death stop her, even as she was pulled into the machinations of greater powers. Using her excellent intelligence and observational skills, as well as a lot of cunning and manipulation, she used the crown of the Raven Queen to defeat Zybilna and cause the fall of Prismeer. This action drew the mists to Voronika, and she became the new Darklord of her domain of Koshmarr.


Voronika is a Support Champion that allies with evil Champions and members of the Black Dice Society. With help from her Inner Circle Champion, she ultimately must complete three goals to claim the Crown of the Raven Queen and transform into a Darklord. For more information on Voronika and her abilities, check out her Champion Spotlight!

Year Five Variants

  • The Fringe of Society - Help Laeral Silverhand track down a retired Open Lord with limits on which Champions can deal damage.
    Voronika starts in your formation, and only Black Dice Affiliation members and Evil Champions can deal damage.
    Reach Area 75.

  • Ultimate Challenge - The search for the Open Lord continues by relying on Ultimate powers!
    Voronika starts in your formation, and Champions deal no damage unless at lease one Ultimate is on cooldown.
    Reach Area 125.

  • In Search of Power - A royal escort joins the search for the Open Lord!
    Voronika starts in your formation, and her base level-up cost is greatly reduced. She's joined by two Eladrin bodyguards, and additional Orc Fighters attack with each wave.
    Reach Area 175.

Dungeons & Dragons Valentine Key Art

Now she wanders the domains of dread with her companion Tatyana, in search of purpose and power.

Valentine is a Support and Gold Find Champion who takes hold of any incoming positional formation abilities, and uses her telepathic powers to broadcast and boost them, making those abilities more deadly! When you want to add her to your formation, you can swap her with Calliope in slot 5.

For more information on Valentine and all of her mental powers, check out her Champion Spotlight!

A staple of any summer carnival or fair, are those devilish carnival games. There are four different games which will unlock over the course of the event and they include "Balloon Popper," "Whack-A-Mole," "Baseball Throw," and "Duck Shoot." Don't worry, there's no skill involved with these games, you play them automatically when you interact with them.

- It costs 4 carnival tickets to play each game, and you can whack those tickets out of the bushes, or purchase them from Timmy in the Event area for Bush Bucks (30 Salvaged Tickets for 30 Bush Bucks)

- You receive Carnival Tokens based on how well you do. Now, we're not saying they're rigged in the Carnival's favour or anything, but you'll definitely want to ask your friends to help you rig these games to help you!

To get started, the Balloon Popper game is unlocked! As well, it seems William needs your help to satisfy his sweet-tooth!

A Teleporter to Somewhere...

The Pandaclaw was wandering around here somewhere....build the teleporter and complete all the quests and get your very own!

The dunk tank returns! Can you dunk all 8 helpless Bushwhackian residents? NPCs you haven't dunked yet will have a yellow exclamation mark above their heads, to let you know you still need to send them plunging into the icy waters of the tank! It'll help them all cool off. Plus, the tank is always in need of cleaning, so try to keep up with Katherine's daily Dunk Tank Cleaning quests!

Clowning Around

Peat Bog, Pete the Carney's brother has some tasks for you to help him put on a show!

Testing Your Power

And how are your Power collection skills? Are you strong enough to win all the bonus prizes? There are 7 strength settings to beat, unlocking as the event goes on as Strong-Whacker Sabine continuously tries to increase the difficulty of her Strong-Whacker Strength Machine Game.

New for 2022

If you can complete the event, you'll earn the Carnival Flower Box!

A new Pandaclaw Skin!

Once you complete the teleporter quest line and capture a Pandaclaw, Taban the Teleporter Engineer will offer to transmogrify your Pandaclaw companions, changing their appearance, with science! There are now FIVE Pandaclaw skins to choose from, each yielding a type of pet DNA.

VIP Rewards!

Idle Champions: Founders' Day 5 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Founders' Day is noted on city calendars as the first day of Flamerule and commemorates the Free City of Waterdeep's founding. The Field of Triumph is the site of illusory shows of the history of the city as well as martial exhibitions by the guard and other noted warriors of the city. The Champions have joined in the celebration, but the Archduke Zariel of Avernus has set a plan in motion to harvest souls for the Blood War during the festivities!

Will our Champions be able to stop her in time?

Founders' Day 5 introduces Nahara, the aasimar warlock/bard from The Black Dice Society, and brings back Sergeant Knox, the human fighter from Neverwinter, and Freely, the lucky halfling from Heroes of the Planes! Players have until Monday, July 11th at 12PM PDT to complete their event unlocks and objectives.

I. New Champion: Nahara

Dungeons & Dragons Nahara

    When she fell into the mists of Ravenloft, Nahara was unable to remember anything from her life, or previous lives. All she knows is she's caught in the conflict between her current Patron, Azalin Rex, and his foe Strahd von Zarovich, who has been desperately seeking her out.

Nahara is a DPS and Speed Champion who permanently grows more powerful as she recovers her lost memories by completing areas and quickly dispatching enemies. When you want to add her to your formation you can swap her with Nayeli in slot 3. She joins her friends from the Black Dice Society during this Founders' Day, and you can find more details about her in her Champion Spotlight.

Idle Champions: Dragondown 5 
Posted in Idle Champions.

At the mouth of the River Mirar in the northwest of the Sword Coast lies the port city of Luskan, also known as the City of Sails. Officially governed by the five High Captains, Luskan is actually secretly run by Jarlaxle Baenre and the Bregan D'aerthe.

And they need your help.

While celebrating the Summer Solstice with a smaller scale version of Waterdeep's Dragondown festival, Luskan has managed to draw the attention - and the wrath - of a Bronze Dragon and their kin...

Dragondown 5 introduces Merilwen, the Wood Elf Ranger from Oxventurers Guild, and brings back Selise Astorio, Human Paladin of the Rivals of Waterdeep, and Nova, the knowledge-hungry Genasi Warlock from High Rollers: Aerois. Players have until Monday, June 20th at 12PM Pacific to complete their Dragondown 5 unlocks and objectives.

I. Merilwen

Dungeons & Dragons Merilwen

    Merilwen is at home in nature, happy to speak with animals or plants at the first opportunity. She's always ready to pull out her trusty bow, or turn into a cat, to get out of many tough situations. With a fierce loyalty to her friends, and to nature itself, she'll call upon the moon to deal with anyone who gets on her bad side. And if you're really unlucky, you might stumble into Merilwen's Meatgrinder. Spoilers: it's a very bad time.

Merilwen is a Support and Gold Find Champion who increases the damage of all Neutral Champions, and when she transforms into a cat, she increases the attack rate of adjacent Champions. Her gold find and ultimate are both improved when she is combined with other members of the Oxventurers affiliation. She can be added to the formation by swapping her out with Celeste (Slot 2).

For more information on Merilwen and her abilities, check out her Champion Spotlight!


Year Five Variants


  • A Neutral Position - Merilwen starts in the formation and can be moved, but not removed. Only Neutral Champions (on the Good/Evil axis) can deal damage.
      Getting to Know Merilwen: Merilwen increases the damage of Neutral champions. Use a Neutral DPS Champion to make the most of this!
    • Reach Area 75.
  • Cat Nap - Merilwen starts in the formation and can be moved, but not removed. Champions' normal attack cooldowns are increased by 3 seconds. Merilwen's Wild Shape ability starts out unlocked and has a +300% bonus to attack speed cooldowns.
      Getting to Know Merilwen: Merilwen's cat form makes nearby Champions attack faster. Use this to your advantage!
    • Reach Area 125.
  • Loyal Friends - Merilwen starts in the formation and can be moved, but not removed. Her Ultimate starts unlocked and its cooldown takes half as long. Only Champions with an Affiliation can be used, and Oxventurers Guild Champions do 400% more damage.
      Getting to Know Merilwen: Merilwen's ultimate grows stronger with other Oxventurers Guild Champions. Try it out if you have already unlocked some of 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!
