Milena is a new hero from the Empires and Puzzles event, Tower Of Magic, and she’s one of the most powerful heroes in the game. She offers super quick healing and a devastating backhand, and much, much more…
If you read my earlier post about the new Tower Of Magic, you’ll already know that these new heroes enjoy 2 separate Specials. The first is at a near equivalent to VERY FAST mana speed, while the second is close to SLOW.
In Milena’s case, we see two distinctly different Special skills, morphing her from care-giver, into life taker. And in this post, I’ll be exploring her full potential.
Before we start, please consider sharing a link to this post with your Alliance or on social media. It really does help.

Is Milena worth Levelling? (Empires and Puzzles)
Yes. Milena’s a great quick healer and a devastating hitter.
She’s the perfect mix of extremes, making her a fantastic top-end hero.
Milena’s Tier-1 Special (Very Fast)
Milena isn’t unique in casting VERY FAST healing however, her kind are rare and hard to come by.
How good is Milena’s healing? Let’s see:
|Very Fast||Recovers 25% health for all allies||Cleanses status ailments from all allies|
|Very Fast||Boosts health of all allies by 180, which can be added as extra HP if already full||All allies are immune to new status ailments for 2 turns|
|Grazul||Very Fast||Recovers 15% health for all allies||All allies are immune to new status ailments for 2 turns|
|Toxicandra||Fast||Recovers 30% health for all allies||All allies regenerate a small amount of mana over 3 turns, and Cleanses all status ailments|
25% healing looks very strong compared with the others, especially at VERY FAST mana speed. And while I personally prefer Immunity over Cleansing, I wouldn’t really complain either way.
Milena is definitely as equipped and qualified as any other fast healer in Empires and Puzzles. But that’s where the comparisons end, because she can do what they could only dream of…
Cause the Suffering and End…
…of lots of tiny characters on your mobile screen.
Milena’s Tier-2 Special (Slow)
And so, if you choose to forgo Milena’s Tier-1 Special and wait for her Tier-2 to charge, you’ll unleash one of the most devastating field-wide attacks in the whole of Empires and Puzzles.
Right before your eyes, Milena will transform from Dr Jekyll, into Mrs. Hyde… From Beauty, into The Beast… From a chilled out, tea-sipping hippy, into a complete raging maniac.
And her new persona will offer no quarter, nor dwell on remorse.
Here’s how she compares:
|Slow||Deals 420% damage to all enemies||Dispels buffs from all enemies. 100% chance to give 10% mana to all allies that are not Ice (blue)|
|Killhare||Average||Deals 300% damage to all enemies||All allies get -20% defense|
|Slow||Deals 360% damage to all enemies||100% chance to bypass defensive buffs (including counterattack)|
|Slow||Deals 350% damage to all enemies||All enemies are immune to new buffs for 5 turns. Dispels all buffs from all enemies|
|Bobo||Slow||Deals 320% damage to all enemies||Enemy with the highest base defense gets -60% defense for 4 turns. Enemy with the highest base attack gets -60% attack for 4 turns. These can not be cleansed.|
Every time I write out Bobo’s Special, I’m impressed. He’s gotta be one of the best heroes in the game. (I know, I know -he’s slow).
Back to Milena: Her 420% is massive, especially as a versatile second option to her Tier-1 healing routine. That 420% may be the highest mass-damage Special attack in Empires and Puzzles (it’s actually a close second –Cristobal hits for 430% under the right circumstances).
The great thing about these multi-tiered heroes is, you’re always gonna get something out of them;
- If they’re dying, they’re gonna fire-off
- If they’re living their best lives, they’re gonna be chilling and charging for the biggest impact
The only issue I take with Milena’s T-2, is that it doesn’t Dispel enemy buffs until after her strike, so counterattack’s gonna feel like Karma, kicking her in the ass on the way out.
Also note worthy is Milena’s Passive, which has been significantly buffed (and then nerfed) since I first wrote this review.
As it stands, you’ll have a 50% chance to get a 10% mana boost on her Tier 1 Special. And then, a 100% chance at a 10% mana boost, with her Tier 2 Special.

My final thoughts:
Milena’s amazing; an angel and a monster, rolled into one.
I think she works in Raids, Defense, and against Titans: If your team is losing, she can help by healing. If your team is winning, she can help by hurting.
25% healing at VERY FAST is superb, and 420% damage to the entire enemy team is crazy.
On top of that, she’ll even give you a mana boost. What’s not to like?
