Empires & Puzzles Best Heroes Tier List

Upgrading a hero in Empires & Puzzles is hard work and take a ton of time and costs a load of resources. Wouldn’t it be really frustrating when you do that for a hero not worth it?

Of course, it would so I decided to rank up all heroes here in this guide so you see what heroes you should spend all your hard-earned resources and precious time on in Empires and Puzzles.

To make this list here useful, I separated them in different categories such as tanks, healers, splash damage dealer, etc. – the reason for this is it wouldn’t make much sense to have a list where like 3 of the best 10 heroes would be tanks or healers… You need a balanced team and to have that, you will need these different roles in your team ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s go.

Please take note that this is based on stats and individual strengths and team setups and enemy setups are not part of this list.

Best Heroes Ranking In Empires & Puzzles

I tried to structure this list in a new way to give you more insights on how the ranking is done, I hope you find this helpful.

Please mind S = Superior (Best of the Best); A = Really Strong; B = Mediocre; C = Weak

++ = Very Strong; + = Strong; 0 = Neutral; – = Bad

Please mind you will only find the strong heroes here, all Rank C and lower heroes are not listed

Now let’s also have some look at the superior heroes in detail. I simply can’t write about every hero here but I think that those ranked S deserve that I do point out some details about them and why they rock so much in Empires & Puzzles.

Gravemaker

Gravemaker has such speed and tankiness that he deserves this ranking in the tier list. He will make it very easy with that to gain the upper hand and also play it really strong on the defensive side and you can use him as the tank or flank as well.

Black Knight

Black Knight has such high stamina that he makes the perfect tank and in my opinion even the best one among all other tanks in Empires & Puzzles. Never underestimate how hard it can get to take him out and this will give you an advantage in many situations.

Finley

For me one of the best heroes in the wing position with a great ability to stay alive. Don’t get fooled he will give your opponents a really hard time and contributes well to the success.

Alice

Alice deals a ton of direct damage and this makes her perfect for the wing position as well and such damage output simply put her in the S Tier without any doubt.

Zeline

Zeline is a great choice in most aspects of Empires & Puzzles and an awesome choice for the flanks with great durability in offensive actions as well. Also, in war she is a great choice so make sure to get her up if you have the chance to. She is also great against all kinds of Titans as well.

Kingston

Dealing amazing direct damage and in the flank position a great choice with nice durability, another outstanding hero in this tier list of best heroes.

Lianna

Lianna is prettty much the same as Kingston when it comes to where you can use her. I know some don’t like her that much but when you get her costume she will rock your team for sure.

Guardian Gazelle

Her special ability can lower the damage your whole team takes by a large portion. She is an amazing support hero, no doubt about that and with the immunity to status aliments she is also a great choice against Gravemaker setups.

In the flank position you will see her shine most and as long as the tank is alive she will pop her special and makes it really hard for your opponent to snipe her out or get the tank down fast.

Hel

For sure considered as the best hero in Empires & Puzzles by many players, Hel has her place in the S-Tier for sure. The direct damage with the amana reduction is simply insane and will give you a great control over the fight and with the right support heroes wreck enemy teams fast.

Kunchen

Kunchen is an amazing tank with the great elemental link and the defense down debuff against enemies that will give him a great position in your team when you can use him.

Ursena

A lot of discussion if Ursena deserves the S-Tier but in my opinion she does. She is a little bit niche but running her against holy teams and setups is such a huge win that she deserves this ranking.

Seshat

A perfect sniper in my opinion with the ability to stay alive with her high stamina. She resists mana reductionย  which makes her really helpful against many setups you see these days.

  1. That’s an awesome list and description mate I have often tried to do the math whilst factoring in special skill buffs and debuffs but this has been a great help

  2. Can you make a list of 3*** heroes worth keeping? I have alot of 4*** and about 7-10 5*** (not sure what to do about all my duplicates though, do I eat a duplicate even if it’s a good hero like Tiburtus, Grimm, Kiril, Alasie, OratEl, Sonya, etc..) or save to work on at a later time.. (I’m still just working on my 1st team that’s the rainbow pve highest lvls I have and getting them maxed, all are fully ascended around lvl 55-60 (except I recently got Wu Kong and since I’m not a big Chao fan anyways, have been splitting holy feeders)… Since I still need to complete all events at all lvls etc, after maxing current heroes I’d like to make a good 3* team, is there a list? I’d love to know what heroes I could eat,
    Thanks!

  3. You are WRONG about Rigard as a tank. He’s better than any other hero I’ve used, by far. Always dependable, I just don’t know how he takes those really hard hits so well when Leo & Magni even die before him.

  4. Well, Id say the best heroes are those that enable your to build a strong TEAM, meaning SYNERGY. Second criterion, to have fun playing with. I have plenty of 5 stars, some multiplicate.
    Telluria, Obakan, Elkanen, Vela, Elena, Vivica, Clarissa, Alasie, Kadilen, Gravemaker, Frida, Alberich, Anzogh, Seshat, Justice, Malosi, Atomos, Kunchen, Azlar, Magni, Fenrir, Musashi, Raffaele, Domitia, Joon, Tyr, Grimble, Richard, Natalya, Baldur, Isarnia, Athena, Aeron, Ares, Horghall.
    I am playing for 8 months now and this is quite an impressive roster, you should agree…
    None is maxed yet, 6 are rank 4, 10 rank 3 and I systematiccaly upgrade one of every type up to 2-60. This level is quite cheap and quick to reach (no rare items needed). And it is the ideal level to reveal the potential of each hero. I create new balanced teams and upgrade them to that level, so I can really see their teal potential.
    To me, the rankings and preferences are biased most of the time, most players favoring Snipers, which are the most straightforward to play with. When I got Gravemaker and Clarissa for the first time, I thought they were low level. now I have a team 2-60 consisting of Alasie, Gravemaker, Clarissa, Kadilen en Vivica. Killing machine. My defense team is Rank 4 Vela, Obakan, Telluria, Elena and Vivica. Very efficient and fun to play also. And so on,… I upgrade every single hero regardless of the holy scoring, and I was amazed by the excellent performance of some graded C.
    And if I do this in priority for the 5 stars up to 2-60, I do it also with 4 stars up to 3-60 and with 3 stars up to Max 3-50.

  5. Additional remarks:
    Although I have 172 heroes in my present roster, with about 130 unique, my comment is solely based on the ones I have. I never make forecast based on the published charasteristics of heroes I did’nt personnally experienced up to the levels mentionned above.
    The best heroes are the one you do have. You may be dreaming getting Alberich Gravemaker Telluria or whichever, but it might take a lot of time and/or money. And you have no clue how to use them and what they would mean for your arsenal of heroes.
    Last advice: never judge weird new heroes with very new and special skills you do not really see how to use them. An example: when released, Telluria was so overpowered that it got used by most top players as a tank and considered highly difficult to defeat. So powerful they nerfed it after a month. But consider that a few month before they released as HotM Grimble, which is probably the best minions killer. That was the antidote before the virus. Probably most people asking for nerfing hadn’t Grimble. Why do I have only 1 Grimble but 3 Tellurias and 5 Raffaelle?
    By the way, I am also ascending duplicate heroes that I appreciate (and that I own) – for the time being, Telluria, Vivica, Seshat, Gormek, Grimm, Sabina, Melendor, Rigard, Caedmon, Sonya, Boril, Kiril, Cyprian, Hawkmoon,… Useful for wars and rare combinations. Think of a team with 2 Tellurias, Kunchen and 2 Seshats. Deadly…
