Quenell is a new 5-Star hero from the Empires and Puzzles event, Clash Of Knights. Her rep really does proceed her. She once slapped someone so hard they murmured, “yes please”.
I just released a complete Clash Of Knights Quest guide, and it includes initial reviews for all the new heroes. So, if you’re interested in another hero, check it out.

Quenell’s Element, Class, Special Skills, & Talents
Quenell’s core data:
Element: Nature (Green)
Mana Speed: Fast
Family Bonus: Wolf ~ 2/3 Wolf heroes get a 35% / 50% chance to make a cast buff undispellable
Special Skills (Howling Sword): 1. Deals 320% damage to the target and nearby enemies. 2. The caster gets additional +40% power for the next Special Skill they cast. The additional power increase +40% each turn, up to +200% in total.
Talent: PIERCE ~ +25% chance to bypass defensive buffs when attacking. This includes counterattacks.
Is Quenell worth Levelling? (Empires and Puzzles)
Yes -Quenell will bring the pain.
Quenell’s Special (Howling Sword)
Quenell hits like a truck.
Let’s see how much of a badass Quenell is. For ref. my intention is to compare her with heroes who also target three enemies:
|Quenell||Fast||Deals 320% damage to the target & NB||Damage increases by +40% power every time she hits -up to +200% in total|
|Cobalt||Ninja x2 Charge||Deals 325% damage to the target & NB||85% chance the attack will bypass buffs|
|Devana||Average||Deals 255% damage to the target & NB||Summons a monster Lynx Minion & Dispels buffs from those hit|
|Master Lepus||Fast||Deals 410% damage to the target & minor damage to NB||Caster gets -20% defense for his trouble|
|Reuben||Fast||Deals 215% damage to the target & NB||All allies get -50% reduction in pointless pointlessness..es|
|Hannah||Fast||Deals 215% damage to the target & NB||Summons a Fiend for those hit|
|C.Francine||Fast||Deals 225% damage to the target & NB||Cleanses status ailments from allies at the end of each turn & the effect can’t be dispelled|
Quenell’s Comparison (Empires and Puzzles)
Cobalt is Quenell’s only real competition on this list, but his attack comes at Ninja level 2, which is 10 tiles Vs. Quenell’s Fast speed, which is only 8.
That means, Quenell is giving you the same level of damage as one of the best hitters in the game, and is also much quicker than him.
Oh, and that’s only her first hit… this is how she works (it’s crazy stuff)…
Once she fires her Special, a counter starts ticking every-turn thereafter, increasing her potential Special Skill, until you fire her again. So, after one turn (if she fires-off again), she’ll hit three targets for 360%.
Or, if you wait another turn, it will be 400%.
And this ticker will keep going up until she reaches +200%, and will max-out at 520% damage to three targets!
And when you fire her off again, it’ll reset the meter, but not to 320%, but to 360%.
Master Lepus, on the other hand, deals 410% damage to just one target. Then, he follows through and whack his own head with the back of his fist, before demanding a little time to recuperate.
As a pure attacker, I don’t know if it gets better than Quenell. She doesn’t do anything else, but doesn’t need to.
My guess is, she’ll fire-off up to three times per battle, by which point the opposition would have all died horrific deaths.
Quenell – Empires and Puzzles Clash Of Knights
My final thoughts:
Quenell is clearly a top-tier damage inflictor, and the type of hero you can build a squad around.
She’s the first to the gym in the morning and always the last to leave at night. She was born for this stuff, and revels in the pain and nerve damage she’s able to inflict.
While she won’t be prominent, it may be best to avoid her when seen -rather than let your Kum-ba-ya singing squad feel the weight of her heavy handed bombs.
If you pulled Quenell, let me be the first to congratulate you, she’s awesome.
