Bertulf is a new 3-Star hero from the recent Empires and Puzzles event, Clash Of Knights. And while I was crying into my afternoon tea, because I missed out on Wolfgang, Bertulf was busy moving his stuff into his new locker.

Bertulf the Great (Empires and Puzzles)
Why am I reviewing Bertulf?
Because he’s made such a positive impact on my day-to-day gaming.
He really is a 3-Star++ type of hero.
And I did what any sane person would do: levelled him, Limit broke him, and stuck all the emblems on his chest.
Bertulf’s Special (Magnificent Meal)
So what does Bertulf do?
He increases Attack by 100%, -and it can stack up to +160%.
And, he does it at Average mana speed.
That’s it. The wonderful world of Bertulf in a few simple words.
There’s really not much more to say. I just wanted to share what I was seeing, because I’m sure there are others witnessing his badassery, too.
If you don’t have him, let me explain. This guy can be used nearly anywhere. So far, he’s helped me improve my Titan scores -across the board, no matter the Element, including Holy.
And this is a 3-Star we’re talking about.
He’s also in my Raid team for the current Very Fast 3-Star Tournament.
Bertulf’s Talent Grid Path (Health/Defense)
I took Bertulf down the Health/Defense route. The idea was just to keep him alive so he could boost the team’s offence.
I don’t have any other 4 or 5-Star hero who can increase Attack more than 50%, so Bertulf was an awesome addition to my squad.
As mentioned, Bertulf is now used in my Titan teams and is holding his own alongside 5-Star heroes from each Element. And I’m happy to report: he’s really fitting in, quickly becoming a popular personality among the other big names on my roster.
Bertulf, Sergie, and Wu Kong (Empires and Puzzles)
|Bertulf||Average||+100% normal attack for all allies for 4 turns||Stacks up to +160%|
|By-Ulf||Average||+48% attack for NB allies for 4 turns||+46% defense & HP Regen for NB allies for 4 turns. After 4 turns, it all goes bad|
|Sergei||2nd Magic Tier||+100% normal attack for all allies for 5 turns||Stacks up to +160%|
|Wu Kong||Average||+185% normal attack for all allies for 5 turns (-32% accuracy)||This guy makes you miss|
There’s a lot to cover here.
By-Ulf first: He’s nothing compared to Bertulf. But as the only 3-Star competition I could think of, he needed to be referenced.
Sergei next: Sergei does exactly the same thing as Bertulf, but does it slower (at the 2nd Magic tier). Taking him 13 tiles to charge, versus Bertulf’s 10. For the record, Sergei is a 4-Star hero from the Magic Tower.
Finally Wu Kong, the 4-Star missing monkey: This is interesting. My wife has Wu Kong fully levelled with 20 emblems. Here are his stats, side by side with Bertulf’s:
Wu Kong – SWORD 737 | SHIELD 710 | HEALTH 1172 (Defense/Health Path)
Bertulf – SWORD 587 | SHIELD 573 | HEALTH 1181 (Defense/Health Path +LB)
I imagine a standard Wu Kong (without emblems) would be weaker than my fully levelled/emblemed/LB Bertulf. And if you’re like me, and can’t stand to miss, why use Wu Kong at all?
Bertulf looks great across the board.
Bertulf – Empires and Puzzles Grade
My final thoughts:
I don’t really have any final words. I just wanted to highlight a fantastic 3-Star hero.
It’s as straightforward as you like; 1. he fires off, 2. you run a chain of tiles into somebody, 3. they disappear.
If you have him, congrats. If you want him, good luck.
