Captain Nemo is an Empires and Puzzles Season 4 (Underwild) hero. As with the other Season 4 heroes, Nemo is a cut above the rest concerning his overall stats, but is he really superior to his forbearers in any other way?

Is Captain Nemo worth Levelling? (Empires and Puzzles)
Maybe – Captain Nemo looks like a killer under the right circumstances.
Looking at his Special skill, we see a decidedly decent first strike, at 300%. Also, his mana generation speed is what we expect from a Sniper, at FAST.
Added to that, he has a nice Passive skill, giving him a +20% mana bonus at the beginning of each game.
But what Captain Nemo’s really about, is his 600% Konk.
And to get that, we need the Captain to have a status ailment or negative stack.
So who’ll cast a status ailment or negative stack on your team? Frigg, Saoirse, Morel, Bera, Skadi, and many more.
Who’s the best Empires & Puzzles Sniper?
Let’s take a look at how Captain Nemo compares with the other Snipers in Empires and Puzzles:
|Hero||Mana Speed||Main Strike||Secondary Strike/Skill|
|Captain Nemo||Fast||300%||600% damage if the caster has status ailments or negative stacks.|
|Fenrir||Fast||320%||640% damage if the target has less than 50% health remaining.|
|Thorne (Costume)||Average||540%||The caster gets +24% mana generation for 3 turns.|
|Magni||Fast||420%||The caster and nearby allies get +63% defense for 4 turns.|
|Garjammal||Fast||430%||The caster regenerates 675 HP over 3 turns.|
|Bai Yeong||Fast||320%||The target gets -75% accuracy for 2 turns.|
|Phileas Fogg||Fast||420%||Debuffs the target first. Target gets -58% defense against Nature for 4 turns.|
|Aouda||Fast||450%||Deals 500 extra damage if the target has boosted health.|
|Gefjon||Fast||500%||Steals Minions from the target.|
|Cathal||Slow||570%||The attack has a 60% chance to bypass defensive buffs. (+Slayers’ Family Bonus)|
I see Captain Nemo as an OK Sniper, because his full potential is somewhat random and based on the opposition.
While you have more control in a Raid, where you could wait for him to receive a status ailment or negative stack, you might also miss out on a second strike over the same time period.

My final thoughts:
I’m personally not a fan of Snipers although, I appreciate how effective they can be on Raids and Defense.
Gefjon comes to mind, as a Sniper who consistently draws my full attention when facing her on Raids.
Captain Nemo has the potential of being a real thorn in the side of any enemy, under the right circumstances.
