Elizabeth’s Element, Class, Special Skills, Passives & Talents

Here are her key stats & facts.

Element: Fire (Red)

Class: Monk

Mana Speed: Average

Special Skills: 1) Deals 175% damage to all enemies. 2) Summons a Spider Fiend for all enemies. The Fiend damages the enemy with 43% attack every turn. 3) The Spider Fiend absorbs healing and disappears when it has absorbed health equal to 28% of the target’s max health. 4) The Spider Fiend gives -24% mana generation for its owner for as long as the owner has Spider Fiends. This effect cannot be cleansed.

Passive: INCREASE BUFF DURATION ~ Duration of the first 3 buffs this hero receives from Special Skills is increased by 1 turn.

Family Bonus (for 1/2/3/4/5 Underwild Heroes): 25% / 30% / 35% / 40% / 45% chance to spawn an Underwild Gem on board when this hero casts Special Skill. The Underwild Gem deals 50 damage to a random enemy each turn.

Is Elizabeth worth Levelling? (Empires and Puzzles)

Yes, Elizabeth is one of the best heroes in Empires and Puzzles.

I remember when she was first released, I assured my alliance that she’d be nerfed by next Tuesday… She wasn’t. She lived… and proceeded to slap her almighty Fiends into the faces of those silly enough to oppose her.

If you’ve pulled Elizabeth, you’re sitting pretty, because your defense is now stronger for it:

  • Elizabeth appears in 7/20 top defenses in the world. And I’m sure the other 13 wish they had her.

Elizabeth Compared to other Fiend Summoners (Widow’s Kiss)

Here’s how Elizabeth compares with the other top Fiend summoners in Empires and Puzzles:

Elizabeth compared to similar heroes

Fiend Summoning is the new big thing in E&P (second only to Stacks), and currently there’s not a lot you can do about it.

A key feature of Elizabeth’s overall ability is her speed (AVERAGE). A clear advantage over the SLOW heroes on our list.

And once charged, she’ll slap the entire enemy posse for 175% damage, and proceed to flick a Spider Fiend into each of their faces. The Spider will quickly attach itself in a blur of flailing legs and foggy webbing, before settling its Opisthosoma into the victim’s primary cavity.

But their muffled cries won’t help them, as the Fiend bites them for 43% each turn, and refuses to let go until 28% of the victim’s HP has been absorbed. And while this pest infects the face of its victims, they suffer -24% mana generation.

How to play Elizabeth? Special & Position (Tank, Flank, Wing)

Elizabeth is so versatile that she can be considered for all positions.

While she’s most commonly played as Tank, or Flank, among the top-tier, she’s not out of place on the Wing.

The fact is, she targets all enemies and doesn’t offer any localised buffing to teammates. So, you just need her to get hit with some tiles and fire off. And looking at her stats, she can take a hit -my example card above has 843 shielding and 1527 health.

Her position in your defense will very much depend on how strong your roster is; if you have decent heroes who deserve to be Tank or Flank, then go with them. Just stick Elizabeth on the Wing.

If I had her, I’d play her on the Flank, because that’s where I have the most trouble with her in Raids.

I’d also use Elizabeth in Raids, because she’s so strong and (relatively) quick. The only time I’d sit her down is on Map stages, where I want mass strikers to cut through the levels without delay…. on auto.

Elizabeth, Empires and Puzzles Underwild Hero

My final thoughts:

Elizabeth is a bad woman, not to be trifled with.

In this post I’ve focused on her core Skills, but let’s not overlook her Passive, Talent, and Family Bonus, which all contribute to her overall value.

I play 3/2 or 2/2/1 on Raids, and to be honest, if I get the right tiles I can drive through anybody. But when the tiles go against me and Elizabeth gets to flicking Spiders about, it can be a sign it’s time to ‘FLEE’ and start over.

  1. I have both Elizabeth and Hannah and was wondering how you felt about them working together? Would love a review on Hannah and thoughts about them pairing up. I agree with byzanthia about the comparison tables being awesome. Great work.

    1. Hi Dave, welcome. As we speak, Hannah sits on the Wing of #1 in the world. Elizabeth is on the Flank of that same team. And the theme is continued (with both in the defense) for 4 out of the top 5 in the world. Hannah is fantastic, but you’ve got to give something up for being FAST. And only targeting 3, and having them only suffer -20% attack, is the payoff. Well worth it.

      I’ll add Hannah to the list. Hopefully you’ve subscribed so you get updates from me. Thanks for visiting!

  2. As it happens, I pulled her today, along with about 10 other S4 5-star heroes (I was very frustrated at my pull history so I just pulled until I got most of what I wanted this time…).

    Thoughts on Elizbeth vs. Tyr? I only have one set of rings. Tyr is ready to level at 3/70, but Elizabeth is 1/1. I’m leaning toward Elizabeth now since she’s so strong, but I will give it some more thought lol.

    1. Hey byzanthia, hope you’re well. That is so lucky – Who were the other nine 5-star heroes you pulled?

      Looking at Tyr and Elizabeth in isolation, I’d say Elizabeth all day long. Elizabeth can wipe out an entire team, while Tyr is a selfish cat who wouldn’t share a cup of water with you in the desert… That’s just my opinion though, and of course it depends on the rest of your roster… etc etc (…you might have Senan or Hannah already levelled).

      But Elizabeth is Standard top 100, soon to be inducted into the HOF. Tyr’s gonna be at the party, but sat alone watching the door.
