Limit Break 2 / Alpha Aethers: Guide & Hero Power Search Tool (Empires and Puzzles)

Text with Hero: Limit Break 2 Guide and Aether Power Tool - Empires and Puzzles

Limit Break 2, “the Second Limit Break”, or Alpha Aethers; whatever you call it, the fact is, you can now level up your Empires and Puzzles Heroes another Pink chevron.

I won’t lie, I tend to use this blog as my own personal reference guide, and that’s just what I did for this post.

Hopefully, in making something useful for me, it will also prove useful for you.

This is a jump link to the Aether Power section I’ll be using the most. Followed by a Hero Aether Power Tool, where you can find the Aether Power for all 5-Star Heroes in Empires and Puzzles.

As for the full guide, please read on!

This post may contain speculation, personal opinion, and adult comedy. It is not advice and is solely for entertainment and informational purposes.


Empires and Puzzles Limit Breaker 2 (Alpha Aethers)

Alpha Aethers, or Limit Breaking 2, is simply an extension to Limit Breaking, which I covered a while ago, here.

The main difference is that this new second level comes with its own powers, called Aether Powers.

You will need to max out your Hero’s first level of Limit Break before you can unlock the next (Limit Break 2).

How many levels can you increase a Hero’s stats by? Another 5 levels. So, a 5-Star maxed Limit Broken Hero on level 85, can now be increased to level 90.

When you Limit Break a Hero for the second time, they’ll receive an additional initial Boost in their stats. Then, as you feed/level them, their stats will increase based on their rarity:

  • 3* Heroes (Rare) will receive an initial Limit Break 2 Boost of 8.7%, and each additional Advanced level will increase their stats by a further 2.8% (per level).
  • 4* Heroes (Epic) will receive an initial Limit Break 2 Boost of 5.2%, and each additional Advanced level will increase their stats by a further 1.9% (per level).
  • 5* Heroes (Legendary) will receive an initial Limit Break 2 Boost of 5.2%, and each additional Advanced level will increase their stats by a further 1.75% (per level).

By the end of all this levelling, a 3-Star Hero will stand at 122.55% of increased stats, a 4-Star at 114.46%, and a Legendary at 114.05% (excluding emblems, costume and troop additional stats).

Currently, Limit Breaking can not be undone.

These numbers were obtained from PlayForFun’s post on the forum. Thank you!

Empires and Puzzles Limit Breaker Requirments (Alpha Aether/Limit Break 2)

The second level of Limit Breaking will use new Alpha Aethers. These Alpha Aethers are not Element specific, unlike the other Aethers.

The new Alpha Aethers can be obtained from the Mirage of Omega Quests, Rare Wanted Missions, Rare Titans, Alliance War Chests, Mystic Visions, and the upcoming Arther Summons and Alpha Tresury Quests.

This is the Alpha Aether 2 reward I got today from a Empires and Puzzles Elemental Chest
My recent Green Element Chest rewards

You’ll also need some of the other Elemental Aethers, I (3*), II (4*), or III (5*), along with the Alpha Aethers to unlock Limit Breaker 2.

Here’s a chart showing the current cost of unlocking the 2nd Limit Break:

Rarity ClassAether IAether IIAether IIIAlpha Aether
Rare (3-Star)11
Rare Costume11
Epic (4-Star)513
Epic Costume31
Legendary (5-Star)105110
Legendary Costume51 – Limit Break 2 Aether Requirements

Levelling your Hero after unlocking the 2nd Limit Break will require further materials including Food, Iron, Ascension Materials, and more Elemental Aethers.

Tomes of Experiences can be used to apply 1 full level without the need to use food, iron, or experience, although it will still require Ascension Materials.

A List of Empires and Puzzles Limit Break 2 Aether Powers

Upon maxing a Limit Broken 2 Hero, you’ll unlock their Aether Power. Aether Powers are bonus Buffs that are activated at the start of each battle.

In map or quest battles with multiple waves, the Buff is applied at the beginning of each wave.

These effects are dispellable.

Each Hero will be assigned one of these Aether Powers. I’ll provide a full list of Legendary Heroes and their assigned Aether Powers below, but first, let’s have a look at what they do:

Empires and Puzzles 5-Star Hero Aether Power Tool (Limit Break 2)

This is the section I really wanted for me.

It’s a list of all the 5-Star Heroes in Empires and Puzzles and their personal Aether Powers.

I’ve sorted the Heroes into alphabetical order within Element groups to make it easy to find your Hero.

Use the tables below to skip to the grouping containing the Hero you’re interested in. Costumed Heroes will be identified with (C) or (C2) after their name, so just search for their name.

      1. You are absolutely right.
        Will you update the list with the upcoming heroes? They are launching like 10 heroes each month…

  1. I am so torn on what to do, but I just can’t make up my mind. Ludwig. Anne. Arco prof L. Xnolphod. Or cupido. I know you prefer to give the facts and have people make their own choices but I really value your opinion. Current def is alucard. Diaochan. Arco. Anne. Mr pengi. My attack is prof L. Quenell, Ludwig, Fortuna, alucard. I’ve been grinding since they released these, please help with a suggestion

    1. Hey Mill Nye, you’re right in that I don’t like to tell people what to do and won’t here either! I would say to pause, just chill for the time being. Wait for the right Hero to jump up at you. There’s no rush but you are limited by the number of Alpha Aethers you have.

      You mention a bunch of high-end Heroes and that is a problem in itself for you. Find them in Raids and try them out. Also, things may change and be balanced in future, so time may be on your side!

  2. Something useful to point out that you may want to add in here is that while these buffs are dispellable, they are not overwritten by opposite ailments. So you can have defense up from your limit break buff, and then get a defense down ailment at the same time (which is kinda weird). Not sure whether or not they are overwritten by similar buffs though.

  3. That’s quite plenty of work, dude! Thanks for that. One thing i’ve noticed is that you put (accidentally, i guess) Sargasso & Thoth Amun on Light heroes list instead of Dark. Just for record 😉

  4. Thanks OC! I’ve been looking for something like this for the last week. Wanted to know what Milena, Leonidas costumes, and perseus costume aether powers were . Considering Alucard as vampire is a useful seeming power. Also considering 3 epic heroes like Franz, Kalo, and the fire 3-kingdoms lady with defense down. We’ll see, waiting for now…

  5. I’ve been wondering if someone would make a find-by-name tool instead of having to go through the list power by power in the forum post, so this was a great find today and I let my alliance know how to find it.
    Thanks for all the work to make this, it’ll be visited often in the future!

  6. Many thanks for the work. My thought in that (as I broke Ludwig who is more valuable in offense now in my eyes) best approach for ally should be: check which heros are tanky by nature… Check their abilities (as I do see defense up bulwark and maybe damage reduct and some other due to support tank best / lasting time 4 to 6 rounds) and look up which of them you have in the ally… Break the ones you have most in ally… (I do still support mono or 2 color tank approach although I really enjoyed your post of multi color tanks earlier..) what are your thoughts on that?

  7. Hello OC,
    Thanks for the work of the last few years, I always eagerly await the new posts to cheer me up.
    I’ve found Ludwig to be a bad choice on a limit break to use as a tank. What’s the point of taunting him if I’ve already eliminated him with the tiles before I can use my specials. It makes more sense to rely on defense or life increase.
    Keep it up and greetings from good old Germany

    1. Hi Bommel… So same experience in Ludwig as I had…. BUT on offense he is now even more dominant… I love him… Try rainbow team (with 30 troops each hero normally then) and force as many cascades the first 4 turns you can… Ludwig normally will stand 2 to 3 def heroes fyering of their special… And now it’s up to you with 2 to 4 loaded heroes… Rainbow und 2nd break Ludwig on offense is such a nature force…

  8. Nice work on the post, I’ve gone for xandrella for my second limit break, I’ve noticed you haven’t reviewed her yet she is an ice slaying goddess and Ludwigs taunt drawing her first shot is a bonus as she will then target every ice hero after!
    she seems an absolute weapon so far my cups are in safe hands

  9. I’d like to know who you’ve decided to use your 2nd limit breaks on? I’ve done Ludwig and Charon, but I spent some money and can now do two more. I’m not going to give you my full roster, I’m just interested in what you’ve done for yourself, although I’m really considering using one on Anne.
    Your website is super valuable, and is the first place I go to research new elements of the game, including heroes, events, strategy, etc. I wish there was a way to support you monetarily. Your info is great, but it’s your writing style that really keeps me coming back. Thank you!!! Scott

    1. Hi Scott, thanks for the support, I really appreciate it. There’s no need, I’ve got ads on the website and that’s enough.

      I’ve only LB2 one 5-Star Hero; Ludwig. And he’s about to take a haircut with the Big Balance Update. In fairness, I got to test him in beta and took a particular interest because I had him.

      The only other LB2 I’ve done is Azmia. She is by far the best all-round 4-Star Hero I have. It was an easy choice, she sits on my Defense and I live above 2750 at the moment.

      I did get a few extra Aethers from the free spins and that’s how I did Azmia. -I have 1 more left but I’m saving it to hopefully get more to level a 4 or 5 star later.

      There you have it. That’s everything.

      I would like to level my Raid Squad of course, and my D. And some 4-Stars to experiment with. But there’s no way that will be happening anytime soon!

  10. Trying to use an Epic Tome of Experience to take someone from 89 to 90, and it’s saying I will also consume a 3*, 4*, 5* Ether and a Mystic Rings.
    Did this change with an update before this originally posted?

    1. Hey Billy, I can’t recall a change but it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. I’ve tried to check and can’t find anything besides the original information on the forum so I’ve updated the post to remove that section.

      If it wants Mats in-game, than that’s how things stand. Thank you for letting me know!

      If I find anything more I’ll return and update the post and this comment.

    2. OK, it looks like there was a change and it came in version 58, applied with the Big Balance Update. I’ve updated this post to reflect that:

      Tomes of Experiences can be used to apply 1 full level without the need to use food, iron, or experience (although it will still require Ascension Materials).

  11. Always a great read & a ton of help!
    Advice on who to double limit break question.
    I have Vivica, Lord Loki (neither costumed) Frida & Lianna (all costumes) in the running.
    The 4 heroes are all maxed out & I’m struggling to decide who to give my 10 (of 11) aethers to.
    Thanks in advance.
