Azmia Review, Empires and Puzzles (Season 5) – Updated!

Azmia Empires and Puzzles Hero Card Small Alpha Aether

Azmia is the best 4-Star Epic Hero in Empires and Puzzles. There, I said it. And, you know what? It weren’t that bad. She’s a monster. A 4-Star Legendary, and a Cups magnet…

But, you gotta promise not to tell Small Giant, OK?

Too late – Azmia was nerfed! I’ve updated her details and added a post-nerf section below, giving my opinion on her value now. The original review remains the same.

Before we start, please consider sharing a link to this post with your alliance or on social media. It really does help.

How Good is Azmia? (Empires and Puzzles)

I really wanted to write, ‘Analyzing Azmia’, just like my Analyzing Ferant post.

But that proved to be his jinx, so this time I’m gonna play it safe, act like this is just another ‘normal’ review. -So, SG can move along, nothing to see here…

I found Azmia to be a bit, meh… 😞

She’s been a complete disappointment since I levelled her and entrusted her with all the emblems.

I even had to bench her and play Boril instead, coz he’s much better.

Think they’re gone, yet?


Here’s what Azmia actually does:

Azmia gets all the Cups!

I’ve redacted their names to give them some privacy, to allow them to properly heal from their ordeal.

After all, they didn’t know what Azmia was about to do.

They probably thought it would be an easy win.

All looking at my Cups, spying my Pork, cutting their eye at my poor man’s Defense.

But no!

Azmia got to shaking the very foundations of their reality!

What was wrong, was now right!

Every time they hit out, they got hurt.

The cries! The confusion! “Why on earth, for the love of dear mercy, is that 4-Star Hero OVERHEALING EVERYBODY?!”

Azmia is sooo Awesome (Empires and Puzzles)

We all know what 120% – 150% counterattack represents: Super annoyance.

And also, top-end counterattacking.

But Azmia is a revelation… She does sooo much more.

For starters, she’s an Average speed Hero who recovers 20% health. And, that’s a good chunk early in the battle.

She also has a 60% chance of Overhealing all allies by 10%, and this is massive. As I play another healer in raids, I always fire off that healer (Esme) first, so if Azmia gives Boosted Healing, it actually Overheals.

Oh, and she has a 60% chance of Cleansing the latest ailment from all allies.

I was recently raiding, when we all got hit with this Burn ailment. Then, I fired off Azmia, looking for some healing and a shield. But, when I looked up, the ailment was gone. 🤔

…It was Azmia. She had cured us all!

See, I hadn’t finished reading her Passive; I got to the ‘Overhealing’ part, was completely chuffed, and just slipped away into happy daydreams.

OH-OH, and that Family Bonus, works SOLO. She don’t need no help. Just some space to do her thing.

Is Azmia Worth It? (Empires and Puzzles)

Yes, but let me explain.

It’s been a long time since I’ve pulled a Hero capable of forcing a shift in my play style.

-Azmia is that Hero.

In the past, ICE Heroes have rarely featured in my raiding strategy or held prominent roles on my Defense Squad.

However, Azmia does.

And now, with her inclusion, it opened the door to a collaboration with Esme, -the under-skilled (yet useful) healer.

Esme offers 40% healing, which is perfect for topping up all Heroes, in hope of Azmia’s Overheal. And as both are Average, they’ll both fire off multiple times in battle.

However, it’s Azmia who forced the change. And she now resides on all of my important teams (Map/Stages/Tournaments/Raid/Defense).

And if you’re wondering how she does so well in raids against Legendary Heroes, it’s her stats (Limit Broken, of course):

Sword: 616
Shield: 965
HP: 1628

Here’s Esme, with all the emblems:

Sword: 792
Shield: 911
HP: 1629

And also, Azmia’s healing helps to keep her alive:

Example of Azmia Passives in Empires and Puzzles cups
Azmia’s Passive Healing – Look at the shock in their eyes!

That’s 574 HP healing when the Passive goes off (at least 60% of the time).

For the record, X-O-pod… sorry, Xnolphod, provides about 630 HP healing from his 32% Special.

Azmia Review (Empires and Puzzles)

My final thoughts:

Here’s the thing, at least my point of view:

If you’ve got top-drawer Deities, then Azmia’s still gonna offer you another angle to work with in a War, or a Tournament. That’s because she’s way OP in my view.

And if you’re F2P or C2P, then she’s a dynamic, powerful Hero, capable of shifting your fortunes, -well worth the little effort required to level her.

She’s a 5-Star Hero, for the price of 4-Star Mats.

Do. Not. Tell. S. G. -I won’t go back to the way it was before.

Hero Grade for Azmia (Empires and Puzzles)

So for my grading, the question is:

Is this Hero’s Special capable of/likely to change the outcome of a battle? Yes.

If not, do they still bring enough to the party to help defeat the deities? N/a.

Old Cynic’s Hero Grade: Deity ⭐⭐

This Hero was subsequently Buffed or Nerfed by the developers. Details have been updated to reflect the changes.

* OldCynic’s Azmia Update – Post Nerf Review *

[06 June 2022] It’s been a while since our beloved Azmia was nerfed, and I’m happy to report, she’s still a beast.

I tap these keys as lightly as possible, in hope that I can relay this message to you, without the E&P gods learning of it.

Sure, Azmia isn’t as outrageously strong as before, but she’s still not to be trifled with, as evidenced by the fact that,

  1. She still holds the same prominent position on my Defense Team, and more than that,
  2. She played a pivotal role, on both Offense and Defense, in my recent rise to No.1 in the World, on the Empires and Puzzles global leaderboard.

And, that was post-nerf.

This Lady does too much to be ignored and I have no regrets in levelling her, Limit Breaking her, or giving her all the emblems.

As always, this is just my opinion, but my love for her has not faded. She is still a monster on the field and is still a Super 4-Star Hero.

Ps. She will now heal for somewhere in the range of 250-300 HP, versus the 350 she was doing before.

  1. I just got Azmia but she recovers only 13% health for all allies and counterattacks with 106% of the damaged received for 4 turn for herself and nearby allies. Is she still worth leveling up?

      1. SO WHAT NOW?
        got some questions…

        nothing is updated..

        i got zmia up – istill think i will give her lb and blems

        can she still far in the 5 star areana?

        i always thougt only 4 slow heros can prevail in nich vf wars

        she is avrage so canshe be ok in normal top 200 war?


        i have all the other 4 star five season heros/ is there anyone whom should i raise(i already took junaid uo – he is pretty ok not a game changer and not always even helping but he is ok)

        so question
        amzia is still on?
        and apart from jumaid any other 4 star that can be of a help and replace c rgard c kiril almur and wu kong?

        1. For attack in 4 star tournament azmian tank LB/Embled + 2 x junaid LB/sword path/HP and you have 2 fast 911 attack snipers (wings) who deals 400% DMG and charge same time and you get like 500HP for all allies and azmian as a tank also healing, you win 25 attacks, flanks you can use what ever becose those three is sick and there’s even more. Passives! Good luck I’m leveling third junaid and maybe eaven four so Junaid is the hero to have 2-4 peace and you win it all

        2. I have a double lb azmia I pair with Khufu and they alone cause tons of havoc…then I add in Emilio with his heal when any enemy hero has the burn effect ..that’s triggered a lot with Khufu and azmias family bonus.. in fact i have two azmia..and seriously considering double lb both

  2. Ferant has been trying to reach Azmia to tell her all about a rough patch he went through in life recently. Oddly enough, his good friend Krampus went through the same ordeal. SG better not even think about it this time.

    1. In honesty, I don’t think they will. Ferant was hurting real top end teams, I don’t think Azmia has the same ompth. But as you know, she’s still really useful and can create some interesting teams.

      Tell Ferant, times a healer… and meditation helps 🤕

  3. I summoned her and have her fully emblemed and limit broken. She’s truly a game changing hero! I ran her next to Ferant and fired him first and her right after. It kept the mana reducing counterattack from Ferant and switched the damage counterattack to her scaling counterattack. So both were in play at the same time! Awesome!

    1. ‘It kept the mana reducing counterattack from Ferant and switched the damage counterattack to her scaling counterattack.’… Wow.

      That sounds useful and like something they’ll “fix” in future. Cheers GamerrFreddie!

  4. I was lucky enough to pull her. Only downside ulo’s that she’s a monk, like most of my other heroes, so struggling to find the emblems. But we’ll get there, her and me. Eventually.

  5. Spot on as usual! Love her so much! You say you use her with Esme, I don’t have her leveled yet, would you use her with Ariel/cAriel? Speeding up her mana wouldn’t be awful, methinks.

    1. Hey Princess, yes! All in all, I’d take Ariel over Esme.

      As time goes on and these Fiends start to rattle through, Esme is looking better and better. But yes, Mana is just what would push Azmia over the top.

      Let us know how that pairing goes!

  6. She was my second summoning from the preview event of S.5. After reading this article I’m definitely putting her on the fast track and try out that combo of her and Ferent. O.C. what is your thoughts on teaming Esme and Captain of Diamonds to handle those minions masters?

    1. Hey Dominator, congrats! Sounds like a plan. I imagine ol Cap would have a field day with some of the defenses we see today.

      However, I’d be willing to sub him out when necessary.

      Thanks for visiting!

    1. Hey Marcus, it’s a hard call. She’s not the same person and I’m loosing cups now.

      She’ll still be a solid 4-Star, so for tournaments. But, I don’t have enough info to be conclusive on her use in Raids/Defense for now. If my cups are an indication…

  7. I was lucky (?) and pulled a second Azmia. Is it worth leveling a second? Do you have words of wisdom on having 2 o3 of a character? My roster is pretty full and new heroes everyday :P, Thanks

    1. Hey Maxx, we know I love Azmia but besides War and maybe Map Stages, there isn’t much more value in having two (imho). It’s possible to tryout certain things in Defense, but the problem is two blue tanks make it easy to go Green against it. Also, diversity is better in this game and if you have other promising heroes waiting their turn, then I’d level those first.

      At the end of the day, if it were me, I’d keep the double sitting for awhile. You may have a natural gap where it makes sense to level her. But I wouldn’t force the matter, because I’d be unlikely to regularly use the second.

      = Not much to gain in rushing the second, but a decent double to have if nothing better waiting or likely to come along (F2P/C2P).

      Hope this ramble helps!

      1. Yes thanks so much for the comments, I have 219 heroes. I am really starting to question having two of anybody, yes I see them in 3 star tournaments and some 3 or 4 star event teams but my roster is so full. Not to mention building my 20 five star for next SE.
