Empires and Puzzles August 2022 Soul Exchange is here, and there’s an array of heroes up for grabs, so let’s check ’em out.
Giving up 10, 15, or 20 heroes in exchange for 1 is always gonna be a big decision, so please get other opinions, too!
There’s a lot to consider, including your current roster.
For example, you might not have a great 5-Star Ice hero, but might have a solid 5-Star Holy hero. So, it could make more sense for you to exchange for the element you’re weak in, rather than double your already strong Holy range.
There’s also the real danger of overstretching for that top-tier hero, and completely depleting your reserves.
Finally, I’m not judging your picks, we’re just talking here. There’s no wrong or right, so please don’t walk away feeling like you’ve picked the wrong one.
Also, I don’t mind folk disagreeing with me. That’s the whole point, to get opinions from all sides.
Before we start, please consider sharing a link to this post with your alliance or on social media. It really does help.

Empires and Puzzles Soul Exchange August 2022
Here are the 15 heroes up for grabs in the August 2022 Soul Exchange:
Let’s go through the tiers, and I’ll offer my personal opinion on the best heroes from each.
*** August Soul Exchange Poll ***
Before we get to my 2 cents, I saw this Poll on the E&P Forum, which was conducted last week, based on the *Leaked* information shared on Social Media.
And in short, I agree with the results.
But as I’ve referred to it before giving you my opinion, it’s only fair that I acknowledge it.
OK, let’s go.
Tier One (10 Heroes) – Soul Exchange, Empires and Puzzles August 2022
Here are the heroes offered in exchange for 10 of your legendary heroes:
- Lady Locke
All much of a sameness…
I’m not really a fan of any of these heroes listed in the 10 Souls exchange list.
Raffaele may be the most utilized in the game, but he’s not doing much for Slow.
He could be an asset for Rush Tournaments or Wars.
The interesting heroes, which might have moments to shine, are Ranvir and Natalya.
Ranvi because he could give all allies +195% Attack under the right circumstances, and Natalya because she has an odd, unCleansable, Ailment: -54% Mana generation for 4 turns.
I’d love to stick that on some top-end heroes.
But overall, it’s a bit rough down here in the trenches.
Tier Two (15 Heroes) – Empires and Puzzles Soul Exchange August 2022
Here are the heroes offered in exchange for 15 of your legendary heroes:
- Captain Kestrel
#1. Theobald (Soul Exchange Heroes)
Theobald is awesome. If he goes off, there can be a lot of confusion as to what in the f#*k just happened.
First, he slaps everybody; 405% to the enemy with the highest remaining HP, and 260% to the rest.
Then, he buffs all allies with a ridiculous GREEN counterattack:
- 115% Damage, and
- All Status Effects return to sender
Then, he gives all allies +45% Attack, plus a further 20% each time they’re hit for 4 turns.
A great hero for Rush Tourneys and Wars, but he could also find synergy and purpose in Raids/Defense, too.
#2. Senan (Empires and Puzzles)
A lot of what I do here on the Old Cynic is technically described as, ‘Chewing the Fat’.
It’s like thinking aloud, offering an opinion as food for thought.
We recently witnessed the return of the Slayers, and so I updated my post. And that’s relevant because, while most of the other Slayers took a demotion, Senan managed to hold onto his Deity grading by the skin of his teeth.
You can find lots of ‘Chewing the Fat’ and my reasoning in the comments over there, for right or wrong!
So, if you’re interested, head over.
I still like Senan, and love the Slayers Mana potential.
#3. Zeline (Soul Exchange Heroes)
Zeline doesn’t hit for much. As we know, 220%+ is what we’re currently seeing from new Fast hitters.
But she does have one Skill, nestled among her bounty, which raises an eyebrow.
Along with an OKish hit (143% to all), a -34% Attack Ailment, and a Mana-based Element Link, Zeline has the ability to Dispell all buffs from all enemies.
And that’s a nice touch which really does add value.
Tier Three (20 Heroes) – Soul Exchange, Empires and Puzzles August 2022
Here are the heroes offered in exchange for 20 of your legendary heroes:
- Director Zuri
#1. Quenell (Soul Exchange Heroes)
When I first saw Quenell, I thought she was gonna break the game. She was one of the first Fast heroes to really go crazy on the Slapping Front.
Quenell is listed as No. 4 on my countdown of the Biggest Hitters in Empires and Puzzles (at the time of publication), -and that’s the Pound-for-Pound category.
Hitters are so powerful in this game because they have the ability to end battles. And it won’t take a lot of brain juice to find the right synergy to make Quenell’s slap the last action before the Defeat Dong sounds.
If you need a hitter, a Green hitter at that, then the stars have truly aligned because Quenell’s an amazing option.
But if you’ve got hitters lined up around the block, then maybe SG can interest you with…
#2. Director Zuri (Empires and Puzzles)
Director Zuri is a statistical powerhouse, Healing for a vast amount following a couple of rounds of buffing from SG.
What I really like is her tendency to help the weakest in the Party, healing that sorry soul for a staggering 65%. -Much like Healers in the Classic games I used to play back in the ’90s.
If you need a Healer, the good Director may just be the one for you.
#3. Morel (Soul Exchange Empires and Puzzles)
I picked up Costumed Roc a few months ago and then, soon after, I got Morel.
The problem for Morel?
He didn’t fit into any of my teams, whereas C.Roc was able to walk in and take Point.
That said, as I was recently reminded by a reader, and it’s true, if you don’t have an elite Defense-Down hero, Morel is still worth his pixels.
Empires and Puzzles is moving quickly and Morel might be losing his foothold at the top end, but the facts remain; he’s a Fast charging, blanket-hitting and blanket Defense-Down superstar.
C.Roc was a game-changer for me, but if I didn’t pull him, Morel could’ve easily been that, too.
This Soul Exchange is all about your roster and that is no more seen than with Morel.
PS. I really like Onyx. A seriously useful hero if you don’t have that sort yet. I would love to get him. Also, Asterius is a beast. He’s heavy-handed, inflicts Burn, and delivers some Defense-Down.
Empires & Puzzles Soul Exchange
But, picking a hero is all about trying to fill a gap in your team or roster.
And if that hero is listed, well, that’s all that really matters!
Anyway, that was my opinion. What’s yours?
