Hello Erika!

This is an incredibly minor point, but it drives me nuts: The game tries to sort cursaders as they are best matched for missions, in the order of fewest to most enchantment points. For the "Training Montage" missions it ALWAYS puts Paul the Pilgrim first because he's a Tank, Support and Gold crusader. The problem is he's an Elf, and not a Human or Animal. The mission requires 3 crusaders and none of them can be an elf. Can you and an additional heuristic to sorting crusaders for missions to rule out ones that don't meet all of the qualifications?

Hi Ultravod,

You could send Paul, Shenna or Euodia, and then any other Animal Crusader on the mission for 100%. That would be why the game puts him there.

I'll add your vote to tweaking the mission list sorting on our suggestion list though.

Is it just me or is tier six (this new event) substantially harder than tier five was last year? Like... I swear I more or less coasted idle in the last year, objective after objective and every single tier 6 objective has been.... let's call it a struggle bus. like a choose the wrong crusader and fail the objective kind of struggle bus. Thanks in advance. :)

Hi gordond,

The Tier 6 events are harder than the Tier 5 events with the difficulty compression.

That's why they have the requirements of completing To Infinity and Beyond and Bullet Hell noted, since you'll need to be able to craft a formation with over 1e400 DPS to complete all 5 Tier 6 objectives.

Good morning Sylexy,

This afternoon. Kat finished the one she was inking on stream. :D

Thanks for the chests as always, how's the S2 of the dungeons coming along? Anything you can share? Any thoughts on an ETA?

You're welcome for the chests.

Progress is going, though I'm still torn about the pass rewards. The new system is looking cool.

No ETA to share yet, sorry.

Hey Erika

Any way to trick Kat into liking Rick and Morty, so she comes up with a crusader based on Rick for the Emo event, that has the ability to open sprint portals from 5 up to 50 boss areas? Example if you were on area 4010 it could have a 10% chance to “portal” you to 4060 after defeating the boss.[let’s assume those bosses weren’t going to drop bonus idols any way]

Hi N00byDoobyDoo,

Kat has plans for a really cool horror-themed Crusader for Emo's event, which means no Rick.

I'll add the "sprint portal" idea to the list of potential Crusader abilities on our suggestion list to consider.

Thanks for the chests! Hope you are enjoying the fog.

You're welcome for the chests.

The fog these past few days has been rather impressive, that's for sure. Wasn't too bad this morning in town, but the mountains had their foggy halos.


Good morning!

Before we begin today, I hope you are safe wherever you are, and that you are in a position to take care of yourselves during this time of change.

Hello Erika,

So, for a good while, I’ve been trying to keep your attention at dungeon idol gains, which are less than ideal. I also have a few other ideas that I’d like to share. Of course, right when you asked for suggestions for next season of dungeons, I lacked the time to write down my ideas. My apologies for this late addition.

Let’s get idols gains out of the way first. What I’ve seen in most multiplayer games is that progress is fast for new players, but slower for advanced players. This way, newer players can catch up. Crusaders also seemed to follow this philosophy. Still does, mostly, except for one thing: high-endgame players can gather idols much faster than low-endgame players. This was the case since dungeons were introduced, since high-endgame players could get better results in the same amount of time.

However, the problem was greatly exacerbated when idol gains for sprinting were shot: low-endgame players like me were happy to rake up one pe...

Hi Cotlathi,

Thank you for taking the time to expand on your desire for an idol rebalance for the Dungeons system.

For your Talent that increases normal Idols from leveling Crusaders, you're wanting to see it give players e12 just from Crusader levels, or e12 once all the Talents that apply to normal Idols have been applied, like time, areas cleared etc? And then the various Idol buffs would apply to this or not?

And that would make going deep appeal, so that you could get the season levels from the dungeon points? Or is this talent bonus somehow tied to clearing areas in the dungeon objectives?

Would the season levels past level 25 play a part in this talent as well? Or those levels would just be for the bonus materials?

I'll note the vote for replacing Sunday Stroll and your suggested change on our list.

dumb idea for future T7? events.

skins for the original 24 crusaders but this time there's design and tag difference.

(+ maybe the event crusaders round 2)

and yay for desert bus. im still missing soem crusaders there lol

I'll add the request for more skins for the base 20 Crusaders to the list.

I'm sure the folks at Desert Bus will appreciate your donation for the Crusaders. :)

If I miss a deadline is it better to wait for the next reddit post or do you check back to the old posts? Almost done with my next one but already missed the deadline on this weeks reddit post.

You can post on either one, since we didn't make the code this week with the submissions. :)

u/CNE_Erika any idea why the sprite decided to go super Saiyan?

It's just what happens if you're taking too long to kill something.

They power up and increase in size as they do so.

Dear CNE, looking forward to your downloadable launcher, It should fit into a windowed section on my new 35" Ultrawide.

Sounds like a fun new monitor to enjoy. :)

Hi Erika,

I'd be interested in a setting option that allowed us to use the saved formations for our legendary equipment levels too (or a separate set of presets). Any thoughts?

Hi PushPresto,

It's something that's come up over the years. I'll add your vote to it on our suggestion list.

so to be clear, we can open Jeweled Chests, just dont use the cats for crafting or buying skins, until the new feature? also will 100 catalysts be enough to get us started on what ever it is we are now saving them for?

Yes, you could open Jeweled chests.

When do they post?
