How Good is Milena? Empires and Puzzles Magic Review
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.

Milena’s Element, Class, Special Skills, Passives & Talents
Here’s her info:
Element: Ice (Blue)
Mana Speed: Magic
Special Skills Tier-1: 1) Recovers 25% health for all allies. 2) Cleanses status ailments from all allies.
Special Skills Tier-2: 1) Deals 420% damage to all enemies. 2) Dispels buffs from all enemies.
Passive: MANA ON CHARGE ~ On T1 charge Special Skill, this Hero has a 50% chance to give 10% mana to all allies. On T2 charge, this Hero has a 100% chance to give 10% mana to all allies.
Talent: JINX ~ +25% chance to deal +15% extra damage per each active buff the enemies have. The extra damage applies to both normal attacks and Special Skills.
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 22% 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) Empires and Puzzles
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 Milena compares (Empires and Puzzles):
|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 noteworthy, 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.

Milena – Empires and Puzzles Tower Of Magic
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?

Thanks, great article. I agree she’s awesome. Even if you don’t use the stage 2, it’s super powerful to have a very fast healer (I don’t have one, but my only very fast hero is Emilio and I can attest to how great it is to fire in just 3 ghosted tiles). I’d love to have her.
Cheers byzanthia, not long to wait now… assuming rumours of the 15th are correct (for the Tower of Magic). Malosi is my very fast and it’s very useful.
Got her in my 4th single pull, im yet to unleash her potential but this far she is performing scary great.
Also need to say she, along with the ninjas are faster than v.fast.
The v.fast needs a 9% manahelp via troops/talents to hit 6/3 tile/ghost, whereas the ninjas and magics start out at a 5/3 (less than 5/less than 2,5).
She hits 200% faster than i anticipated around a 10/5 and i even filled her up to 200% with 3 ghosted + 3 regular with a lvl 11 troop (9%)
Also noted that the 50% to give 25% mana to your non blue allies is affected by +% mana generation which makes it closer to 30% if you got good manatroops.
This is a grade A blue hero, no doubt,
Hi Cougar, thanks for the feedback.
I had to update her this morning due to the buffing she received before release:
20% healing now makes her the best healer on my chart (imv), and the 390% … that’s simply ridiculous.
I originally rated her 3rd best of all the Magic heroes, but she just took top spot for fast healers and big hitters…
Thanks for stopping by!
Prosím jak ji emblemovat ?
Please how to emblem it?
Hello, I have a controversial view on what Path to take on the Talent Grid; I always go Health/Defense. You can read more about my view here. That said, I would suggest you consider all views, including those of your Alliance mates!
I will add, those who go Attack for Offences heroes, may feel that some of Milena’s strength is lost, taking the Health/Defense path. But you also have the fact that she is a very good, very quick, healer. For me, it’s all about keeping her alive so that she can heal/strike.
Dobrý den, mám kontroverzní pohled na to, jakou cestu si má Talent Grid vzít; Vždy chodím na zdraví/obranu. Více o mém pohledu si můžete přečíst zde . To znamená, že navrhuji, abyste zvážili všechna stanoviska, včetně názorů vašich spojeneckých spojenců!
Dodám, ti, kteří jdou na hrdiny Útočení za přestupky, mohou mít pocit, že část síly Mileny je ztracena, a to cestou Zdraví/Obrana. Ale také víte, že je velmi dobrá, velmi rychlá, léčitelka. Pro mě je to všechno o tom, udržet ji naživu, aby se mohla uzdravit/udeřit.
Hi Old Cynic, I just got Milena. Between Cobalt and Milena, is that Milena better? Before she get buffing, I thought both of them quite similar. But now 390% damage is quite impressive. Thanks for comment!
I personally think Milena is better than Cobalt, but they’re both top heroes. 390% to all is just impressive, and her healing is fantastic. If I had to choose, I’d go Milena.
Got her and motega at same time in lucky x10 pulls.
I like your posts. Great job.
Wow, awesome new team -on a 10 pull? I never get that luck.
I have to decide between her and Alexandrine for scopes (once I get two more which will likely take a while) This article sure makes me lean toward her. However my alliance uses blue tanks in war (Currently I run Theobald) and I’m not sure she could hold down that spot.
I must admit, I have a better appreciation for Alexandrine, having now faced her in a few Raids. But Milena is clearly an Over-Powered monster :).
Understandable though; it’s good to be a team player. I went months on an Alliance running green tanks, with only a Costumed Kashrek to offer.
I think it will be Milena getting the scopes and perhaps I’ll just leave Theobald as the war tank depending on who seems a better fit of the two once all the leveling has occurred
Theobald looks great, especially in Rush Wars. I have a personal preference to Milena, because she’s also likely to be useful in Raids and Defense. I hope it works out!
Ok, i got lots of miles on the meter on Milena now so i can give a better experienced point of view on her now.
Yeah, she is still a grade A monster, but when facing her or other magic/ninjas you have a bit of an edge because you know when she will go off (manabar is flashing if she is set to go off the next turn).
And she is still made of crisp sugar and spice so you will smack her down with a good sniper and som def-down.
But as i have been through wars/raids/hell with her she has transformed a bit in usage.. at first you blindly go for the 420% killshot often balancing on a tiny sliver of life to get there, when her actual A-game lies within her tier-1 special.
Her middle name should be “patience”..
I currently run her in a 2-2-1 setup, and as a formerly exclusive monoplayer it feels awkward but i have to admit that this is the best team i have managed.
That sounds awesome Cougar, thanks for the feedback. She was even buffed recently… I think lots of people are gonna want her in the next go round!
I love using Morel a before Milena’s 2nd charge. It really clears the defense I am attacking.
Had to re-read this because I just got her on a single pull with Tower-chest coins! Have wanted her since the first MT event. I’m just leveling her up, but I think I’m going to go with a blue raid-team troika of Quintin, C.Lepus, and Milena. Can then add C.Rigard & Proteus for the complete team. Thanks so much for all these amazing reviews, and congrats on your recent stint at the top of the world!
Thank you MRG!
A hit from Quintin followed up by Milena should be an instant kill for even the most defensive heroes. Great pair!
Thanks HM. Spot on. The idea is for Quintin to mark the tank for death. Then C. Lepus hits all at 280% also on fast. That should break the tank. If not, then I can charge up Milena another level and hit all for 420%. Or use her fast heal if needed and start again.
