I just pulled Morris, an Empires and Puzzles Season 4 (Underwild) 3-Star hero. Now, I know you’re wondering, what could possibly be so great about this 3-Star hero that he deserves a write-up? Well, my friends, you’re in for a surprise…

Is Morris worth Levelling? (Empires and Puzzles)
No – but I’m gonna.
Take another look at Morris’ Special skills. -All those words and nothing really said.
I don’t know who was paid to put Morris together, but I’m thinking it was a kid on Work Experience… who happens to like moles.
Picture this: The kid is there at SG HQ, sitting on a beanbag next to his Mentor, writing this story out on lined paper….
‘the mole cleans himself all up and down, before digging a hole and hiding in it. Then the mole “jumps” out of the hole and yells “surprise”, then he slaps a stranger, before sniggering in the corner.’
And even more fantastic -this school project actually made it past SG development.
So what’s so amazing about Morris? Why have I written a review for him?
Because he’s my submission for the Worst 3-Star Hero in Empires and Puzzles. He does nothing.
And he does that ‘nothing’ with a mana speed of Average! Why is he Average? Why not just make him Very Slow, and call it a day?
… Look, his name’s Morris, for crying out loud.
Don’t get me wrong; I’ve nothing against the Morrises of the world. But as the name of a hero in an Epic fantasy game?
Is Morris the Worst 3-Star hero in Empires & Puzzles?
Morris is so bad, he’s good.
I’m sure there are players out there, who will profess to a strategy of fielding 5 Morrises for a 3-Star tournament. I can see it now:
- Holes being dug everywhere
- All enemies hiding
- My heroes start slapping each other out of confusion
- Then 1 Morris re-appears, Konks my Costumed Jahangir in the back of his head, giggles to himself, then disappears down a hole again.
I submit that Morris does nothing of any value.
Scratch that… He makes people smile. That’s his real superpower.
Let’s compare Morris to the other contenders for Worst 3 Star Hero of all time:
|Hero||Mana Speed||Main Skill||Secondary Strike/Skill|
|Morris||Average||Digging holes.||Makes people smile.|
|Dawa||Average||210% to target and minor damage to nearby.||Will appear at Summoning Gates when least expected.|
|Renfeld||Average||215% damage to target.||Is also a part-time Cosplay makeup artist.|
|Struck from list following a reader’s appeal.||Has a talent for braiding beards.|
Morris, Empires and Puzzles Underwild Hero
My final thoughts:
OK, I’ve been kidding around with Morris. But when I first pulled him I was annoyed, because I wanted a hero who actually did something. Somebody who decimated the field.
Then I read his card and saw SG have a great sense of humour. -This little mole is more than the sum of his parts.
And for that reason, I’ll be levelling Morris, and will put him on my Defense team for the next 3-star tournament. That way, the opposition can have a good laugh too.
He also has a half-decent hit, after all the digging and hiding is done.
