Caitlin is a new Legendary hero from the Empires and Puzzles event, Slayers of Fell Shadows. There are four other 5 star heroes in the event, but Caitlin is my pick of the bunch.
While some may discount Caitlin on account of her Slayers mana speed (11 tiles), others will want to test the potential of the Slayers Family bonus, for themselves.
Because that Family bonus is grade A, with a cherry on top.

Is Caitlin worth Levelling? (Slayers of Fell Shadows)
It seems that nowadays everyone wants a god-like hero. Someone capable of wiping out the entire enemy team with just 1 tile. And while Caitlin can’t quite manage that, she does do a very good Terminator impression.
I think Caitlin is ridiculous -Why?
- Caitlin dispels enemy buffs first, and that’s huge for a big hitter. Heroes like Frigg, Odin, Kadilen, Morel, Kilhare, and Chakkoszrot, are all subject to counterattack. Caitlin’s not.
- Caitlin’s Special skill is enhanced according to the number of buffs she dispels (up to 340%).
- Finally, if you have two other Slayer heroes, Caitlin will slowly become a FAST mana hero over 10 turns. -Also earning up to 200 HP per turn.
Caitlin looks like a superstar to me.
With Caitlin in your Raid squad, you don’t have to worry about strategy, micro-managing the defense (Bai Yeong), or timing your attack (Chakkoszrot), you can simply CHARGE & HIT … and REPEAT until the enemy team is scattered, bloodied, and defeated.

Caitlin – Empires and Puzzles Slayers of Fell Shadows
My final thoughts:
I’m obviously a big fan of Caitlin, but there’s something we haven’t really considered…
If you do pull Caitlin, how are you gonna get the other two 5-Star (or 4-Star) Slayer heroes, to team up with her?
While Caitlin would be useful without the full Family bonus, she really shines with it.
For that reason, Caitlin and the Slayers Family could really separate those willing to do whatever it takes to get them, from those who pull one hero, on a lucky spin.
