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 ⭐⭐★

With more and more defenses currently started to loading up minion makers to provide ammo for Pengi, SG put out more and more heroes that specifically disabled them. At first it was Penolite but with him with very low (0.1%) chance to get, the minion makers can still survive in defense. Now out come Eloise to wreck it all. Plus, I can predict that she would be in most teams defense in minion wars.
Hey MIB, yep I agree. It’s going to be a balancing act going forward.
Hello, so let me ask you this: I have 2 Eloise’s. One is fully emblemed and LB and she is great!.Would it be worth it levelling second?
I have nice yellow team with Inari,cJoon,Malosi and Hanitra..i like her more than Inari because of damage what she doing.greetings from Poland!
Of course this is going to also concern your roster…
But I would. Eloise is a powerful hitter to all enemies at Ave speed (See the current HotM for ref). On top of that, she destroys minions (who have taken over the game), and make new minions not-an-option.
She’s still fresh, and definitely elite imhv!
Recently got her, with the 3 kingdoms heroes mostly being minion centric – to the point where minions provide skills as long as they are alive, and them being the latest and greatest (read: highest power creep) heroes people are after, Eliose’s ailment is going to be clutch on both offense and defense. Very happy that I got her, and Lewena and Franz, for that nice 35%/50% uncleansible buff. XD
I’m leveling her now and can’t wait to finally get a damascus blade so I can ascend her. LB aethers are ready and wizard emblems will be pulled from other heroes.
I will pair her with Quintin (+20) and Rayne (LB+20) and maybe Franz (LB+20) for rush war / tournaments. Not sure which healer to include… Or maybe use Ruby (LB+20) or Pengi (LB+20) and then I might not need a healer. Or use Mother North instead of Franz as 3 Ravens are enough for the family bonus. Or…
With this combo, I even consider going rainbow for attack or 2-2-1.
I see countless possibilities to combine Eloise and wipe away any team trying to take me down. And in Minion war or against X-mas defenses, Hulda, Diaochan… LOVE HER!
Hi. Thanks for all your reviews. Please would you give your thoughts on Jequn. Got him on a single pull (incredible) and balancing levelling and breaking him, Eloise, Topaz or Rhys.
Hi CB, it looks like you’re spoiled for choice (always makes life harder). Jequn is a great hero who was present in my Tank countdown. He’s a great universal Defense hero but depending on the raiding Stack, and his placement, he might lose a little value in his Ailments. As is always the case when considering elite heroes, it’s better to look back at your roster and consider what you need/want.
Hey OC! Got Jequn to 3:70 and put him into my holy 3 dark 2 team. That passive rocks. Giving extra holy tiles really helps set up your specials. Impressed with him as attack v 5000 teams as gives durability was missing. Still not sure if Gazelle better as an attack package, but with his attack 5 M thinking he is a good attack piece
