Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Help me out please

There isn’t really a standard formation for “run away!”.

Same standards as always applies. Focus on one main dpser (generally: jim, emo, sasha, hermit depending on items).
Focus all other slots on boosting gold find% and the attack of that one main dpser.

For example for werewolf:
back row: Lion, Panda, Kaine
middle row: werewolf, gryphon
front row: probably merman.

for hermit:
back row: lion, panda, kaine
middle row: hermit, jim
front row: empty

for the others, use hermit setup and add either princess or natalie to the front row (natalie if she has the gold item, princess otherwise)

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Objective Difficulty list and idol recommendations (actively Updated)

One obvious one is “beauties and the beasts”, which gets an extra crusader to use (mama kaine) and a potential boost on another (princess → turkey)

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Freeplay reward chest?

Event freeplay has 2 parts.
Firstly you get a chance at a normal chest every 5th level. If you’ve beaten that level before, it’s about 20%, if you haven’t it’s 100%.
That chest is a normal silver with a tiny (less then 1%) chance of becoming jeweled.

Secondly when you reset you always get an event chest. Usually silver, but a decent (10-20%?) chance of it becoming a jeweled event chest.

With normal freeplay, you only have that first bit.

He already concluded that. it seems that clearning the cache removed his auto login and he logged in with his other (wrong) account.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Takents how to get the Area 600

Simply put, at this point (even with a massive gold gain bug) it seems to be impossible.

So just keep playing, have fun, get some idols. and when the rest of the talent shop gets released, hope they boost you.

From what I hear the events will be yearly, so in all likelyhood, you’ll be able to get him during next years carnival.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / lost save data

Contact the developers. Everything is saved server side so they might be able to see what went wrong and potentially help you get it back.

However, like I said, things are saved server side. So besides catestrophic problems on their end, the only (reasonable) problems that cause the loss of a save game are:

Playing with a different user name (or not having been signed in at all before)
Playing on a different site (without linked accounts).

But bottom line: contact the devs and hope they can help.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / 60 000 X DPS only increase idols/hour by less than 3%

One slight problem here is compairing apples and pears. the idol gain quickly tapers off as you go further/longer into a run.

To get a true comparison, you’d need to compair runs of equal length. (actually 2 sets, 1 where the first starts having serious problems progressing, the other where the second team stars having serious problems).

The first (weak team has trouble) should be damn near equal, while the second will show you the true difference.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / New Player want's to mooove.

Basic advise is not to level nate beyond 75 (and merci 125) and instead focus on jim/sasha (for a first run) instead. their level 200 skills will make them quite good dpsers, while nate and merci have only dead levels (minimal increases) between those levels and reset time.

Also don’t forget the unlock codes floating around (and sign up for the news letter for the sasha 100% dps shield – and future goodies)

Topic: Heroes of Glory / not being able to access old servers rather looks like an unfair business practice

Also, so far all the “all old servers are done, poor me” posts have come from you. You could, you know, try getting some others to speak up (in mail aswell as here) and maybe keep it confined to a single thread?

Topic: Heroes of Glory / any fix to black screen? can't log on (servers 1-33)

In general waiting and hoping is your only shot.

Things that (on rare occasion) worked:

Switching to another browser
preforming a dnsflush (almost exclusively for the “server not found” error)
Cursing up a storm

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Something Wicked This Way Comes! Hallowe'en Event! Emo's New Moon!

slight bug: when i buy the clown’s first level, all crusaders up to sal suddenly become visible (if still unafordable). Probably some left over code of the clown that got copied over to the witch.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / There is no reason to deny Kongregate players the Hermit Epic. Fix this.

(I haven’t read al posts yet, but here’s my 2 cents)

When the game launched on kongregate, we got the panda epic through the newsletter.
Now it launches on steam and they get a hermit epic.

I see the symmetry in that, don’t you? Sure it’d be nice to get the hermit epic here aswell… (and you can, long live really long odds via jeweled chests) but I fail to see the point that we “Need/Deserve/Must” get it.

To conclude I’d say that if we should get anything for the steam launch (as someone said, we are the “cause” of the popularity – and we’d like to celebrate with the devs) it should probably be a single chest or something like that. A high end epic for a high end character seems kinda excessive to me.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Carnival of Sorrows is coming to an end - how did you do?

for monkey: rare dps, uncommon dps and uncommon dps all
for clown: rare gold and rare dps all

So not missing anything horribly needed (dps on clown), but kinda annoyed with the luck factor that means i miss an achievement.

That said, still got 2 chests to go… wish me luck

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Mister the Monkey is not a monkey!

I just did the same thing, and werewolf did not lose his buff. Are you sure you haven’t put another human near werewolf (infront/behind?).

Easy way to test: 1) go back to area 1 2) remove all except werewolf and monkey 3) put em together and apart 4) compare dps values. if they change, he’s human, if not, he’s animal.

moshi, that’s assuming that after the event his items won’t get put into the normal chests

Topic: Epic War CCG / Wikia seeking new minion

I’m writing the manual at the moment.

The amount of programming skill required isn’t much more then what playing the game requires.

Basic tasks would be:

  • Creating the raid page on wikia
  • Creating the card pages on wikia (here categories matter)
  • Getting information from the code on the new cards
  • Going through a folder of images to find and rename the correct ones before uploading them to the wikia
  • Adding the links to the cards/images in the right spots (front page gallery, card page)

Some of these things can be done before the raid starts (usually), some of them (mostly the images) need to be done during the raid.

Other tasks could be:

  • Updating the overview pages
  • Creating/updating the specific area pages
  • Keeping an eye on what other people are doing and making sure it doesn’t all go to hell in a handbasket.

These last few tasks are more of a “when you feel like it/have the time/want to” type of task.

Topic: Epic War CCG / Wikia seeking new minion

(Or master, you’re call)

While I stopped playing quite some time ago, I’ve continued to update the wikia. Call it professional pride, obsessive compulsiveness or being nice.

However, as my attention and time slowly dwindle, it’s high time to get us a new admin over at the wikia.

So the question is: Who wants the job?

While some basic intelligence is required, actual knowledge of wikia’s is not absolutely required (I knew nothing about it when I started messing with it). I’ll teach you some basic tricks, some sneaky hacks and the location of all the stuff that other people already hacked for us.

Anyhow, let me know if you are interested (in this thread or via kongregate PM).
