Welcome to this month’s Empires and Puzzles Calendar and roundup. Frequent visitors will notice it’s a tad late, but that’s to allow for the inclusion of a Calendar.
Before we start, please consider sharing a link to this post with your Alliance or on social media. It really does help.

Empires and Puzzles April 2022 Calendar
📅 30th March – 4th April: Alliance Quest (Clash Of Knights)
📅 4th April – 6th April: Atlantis Rises (Season 2)
(None of these heroes actually arrived at the portal this time)
Atlantis Rises is back, and this time there’s more!
In an effort to add fresh blood to the portal, we’re expecting to see two new 5-Star heroes, and both are really strong.
The first is Tethys, a Fast, Ice, Ranger:
- 1. Deals 300% damage target and nearby enemies, 2. They also receive 390 water damage over 3 turns. 3. All allies not Ice get +30% attack for 3 turns. 4. All Ice allies get +60% attack for 3 turns.
The second is Oceanus, an Average, Fire, Paladin:
- 1. Deals 220% damage to all enemies. 2. All allies get +120% normal attack for 4 turns, which can be active in addition to effects that alter attack in general (Max of +170%) 3. All allies get +46% defense for 4 turns.
We can also expect to see a large number of new Costumes: Inari, Wilbur, Ameonna, Gadeirus, Melia, and Mnesseus, all get one.
(Heroes and costumes are in Beta and subject to change)
📅 6th April – 9th April: Tavern of Legends
📅 10th April – 12th April: Valhalla Forever
📅 14th April – 18th April: Challenge Festival
This portal also excludes all Season 1 heroes (please confirm in-game).
📅 18th April – 20th April: Mythic Titan
The Mythic Titan (Hades) is due to fly in around the 18th; can someone please pick him up from the airport, thanks.
📅 21st April – 25th April: New Season 5
Season 5 is expected to start on the 21st of April.
There will be a new map to complete and a large range of new heroes at the portal (which I hope to review in time).
📅 28th April – 2nd May: Underwild (Season 4)
Underwild is home to Xnolphod, Hulda, Prof. Lidenbrock, Morel, and many more top heroes.
In line with previously completed seasons, we should see a flag cost reduction, to accompany this outing.
I did a bunch of pulls for this portal last time around, so check ’em out if you haven’t already!
You can check the raw calendar data, and for any changes, here.
Current Top 10 Empires & Puzzles Defense Heroes
On the morning of 31th March 2022, instead of playing my Quest VR, I reviewed the top 50 Empires and Puzzles Defense teams. Based on that data, here are the Top 10 E&P Defense heroes:
9. C. Alasie ☆ (6)
8. Mr. Pengi – (7)
7. Elizabeth ↓6 (8)
6. Milena ☆ (10)
4. Octros ☆ (12)
4. Morel ↑1 (12)
3. Wolfgang ↑4 (13)
2. Frigg ↑1 (20)
1. Xnolphod ↑1 (21)
Here’s last month’s list:
Empires & Puzzles Top Defenses
Last month, I highlighted Ferant’s rise to the top, stating:
‘… what you don’t see is Ferant, the 4-Star hero. He’s busy chasing down the pack, and leading the charge for 11th place. He appeared a total of 6 times this month (up from 2, previously).’
And wouldn’t you just know it? No sooner had I said it, was he then being nerfed!
But even with the nerf, he still refuses to give in!
He stands here now as the first 4-Star hero to ever grace our modest, yet humble, list.
Anyway, we’ll now return to our regular scheduled programming.
Xnolphod is the best Empires and Puzzles Defense hero!
Finally! The rock has come BACK!
We all knew it was going this way, and deservedly so for Xnolphod, he’s a fantastic hero.
C. Alasie, Milena, and Octros, are all new entrants to this list (☆).
What’s your take on the changes we’ve seen this month?
Empires and Puzzles Quiz
Last month, I got some feedback saying the quiz was too easy… So, this month I’ve made it a little bit more difficult for you.
Here’s how the E&P Quiz works:
- There are 10 Empires and Puzzles questions
- You answer as many as you can in the comment section below
- But, you don’t have to write out the entire question, just the answers next to the question number, so:
1. Devana. 2. Etc. 3. Etc.
And after you’ve submitted your answers, you can check to see if you were right on the quiz answers page.
Remember, cheating is only cheating yourself… Here we go!
