Is Peridot worth Levelling? (Empires and Puzzles)
Yes, -Peridot is completely overkill.
If she fires off on her 2nd or 3rd charge, there’s a good chance she’ll cause Life-Changing-Injuries.
And on top of all that ridiculous damage she’s dishing out, she also leaves the victim missing… up to -54%! for 4 turns.
That’s just like having Dodge, only in reverse.
Peridot Review – Empires and Puzzles
Peridot was released with Topaz, and while both are OP, it’s probably Peridot who brings more to the table.
Peridot will not only chastise her victims, but also poison them, causing utter devastation to befall their bodily functions.
See, after she’s laid hands, your heroes will whimper and fold, struck down in their prime by an internal bacterial overgrowth.
Peridot’s Tier-1 Poison damage is OK, at 220, -although nothing to shout about.
By the second Tier, she’s up to 438 Poison damage (over 3 turns). It’s starting to get nasty, now.
And by Tier-3, she’s full-on record breaking mode, -because I can’t think of another hero who does this much Poison damage (764 to all 5 enemies over 3 turns).
Peridot actually hits for less than we’ve come to expect from a Ninja, as seen in the table below. But what she loses in slapping power, she more than makes up for in Poisoning damage.
Here’s the table:
|Peridot||Ninja-3 (15 tiles)||Deals 320% damage to all Enemies||All enemies receive 764 Poison damage over 4 turns & all enemies get -54% accuracy for 4 turns.|
|Topaz||Ninja-3 (15 tiles)||Deals 390% damage to all Enemies||Destroys all Minions from all enemies. All allies get a small amount of mana for each destroyed Minion.|
|Milena||Magic-2 (12 tiles)||Deals 390% damage to all Enemies||Dispels buffs from all enemies.|
|Ruby||Ninja-3 (15 tiles)||Deals 370% damage to all Enemies||Reduces the mana of all enemies by 100%. & All enemies receive -34% mana generation for 4 turns!|
|Cobalt||Ninja-3 (15 tiles)||Deals 360% damage to all Enemies||100% chance to bypass defensive buffs (including counterattack)|
|Motega||Magic-2 (12 tiles)||N/a||Summons a Butterfly Fiend for all enemies. The Fiend damages the enemy with 43% attack every turn & gives the owner -50% accuracy. Chance to miss also applies to offensive Special Skills.|
I think it’s clear as daylight, Peridot’s a super-strong hero who does so much for the team.
Imagine the devastating impact of her hit, accompanied by the Poison damage over 4 turns.
That’s crazy stuff.
And we haven’t even really touched on the substance she’s flicking into peoples eyes;
- Reduced accuracy, with the chance to miss also applied to Special Skills.
-This Chance To Miss, goes as high as -54%… a crippling figure.
Peridot – Empires and Puzzles Ninja Hero
My final thoughts:
Peridot’s a fantastically strong hero who doesn’t need much, to really put on a show.
As a sniper (Tier-1), she’s more than capable.
As a mid-range hitter (Tier-2), she’s a solid option.
And when Tipping-the-scales as a Heavyweight (Tier-3), she’s a complete monster.
Simply put, I make Peridot one of the best heroes in Empires and Puzzles.
