Is Eloise worth Levelling? (Empires and Puzzles)
Eloise is the final nail in the coffin for Minion Summoners.
Now, I don’t know if the Minion Summoner Designer at SG was fired, or if he/she took something from the fridge they shouldn’t have, but whatever happened, the Summoners are being killed off.
I can tell you first hand, Freya’s not been the same lately; she’s all hesitant and unsure of herself now.
And we all know, Bera’s hurting inside, too.
I don’t wanna start rumours or anything, but Bera and Alexandrine finally had it out at the Christmas party. It was a proper classic; a full-on slagging match.
Alexandrine seemed to give Zero f*#ks about what Bera had to say, -she just stood there, flexing, and staring her down.
And now Eloise’s under contract, -and word is, she’s gonna be taking some serious liberties…
Eloise and the Average Hitters
Eloise comes to Empires and Puzzles a fully accomplished badass.
First, she destroys all Minions from all enemies, then she hits them for 270% damage. Finally, she stops all enemies from getting new Minions for 4 turns.
Looking at the damage, it’s clear to see how decent it (for Average speed):
- Penolite hits all for 245% on Average, and if the target is a Summoner, he hits for 490%
- Killhare hits all for 300% on Average, but stuffs her teammates with -20% defense
- Elizabeth hits all for 175% on Average
- While Viscaro, the current HotM, hits all for 190% on Slow.
270% on Average is a solid whack.
Eloise and the Shameless Killing of Minions
Eloise’s a ridiculously useful hero to own in today’s Empires and Puzzles.
Single-handedly, she swats away all the Minions from the opposition team. Just think about how crazy that is…
All these heroes suffer, including real elite troublesome heroes like Lady Of The Lake.
- Bera + Freya
- The Christmas lot
- Lady Of The Lake
- Any other Summoners
And to end the mockery, she bans them from caring for new Minions for another 4 turns. 😢
I mean, who is this Eloise? What right does she have to walk up in here and start laying down the law?
Eloise and the Clash Of Knights Family Bonus
As with Eloise’s mate, Rayne, she too benefits from the Clash Of Knights Raven family bonus:
Family Bonus: Raven heroes get 35%/50% chance to make an ailment uncleansable
So… there you have it.
Eloise – Empires and Puzzles
My final thoughts:
Everyone’s gonna want Eloise. She’s an absolute powerhouse.
And while I’ve joked around a bit, heroes like Bera and Freya will really suffer.
Eloise’s Average speed means she’ll be effective, and with so many Minion Makers in the game, it’s fair to say, she has the ability to impact the outcome of any battle.
-Plus, she nearly hits as hard as Killhare and does a whole lot more on the side.
Hero Grade for Eloise (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 ⭐⭐★
