Hero Summons – Empires and puzzles

Hero of the month (HotM)

The current HotM is only available via Summon for one month. Unlike regular 5* heroes, you cannot obtain a HoTM through a training camp at TC20. 

Any time you summon a hero using the Atlantis Summon, Challenge Summon, Epic Hero Summon, Elemental Summon, or Seasonal Summon, or Event Summon you have a bonus 1.3% chance to pull the Hero of the Month.

Troop summons and daily summons are not eligible for a bonus chance at the HotM. If you successfully pull the HotM, you will receive both your actual pull along with the HotM, giving you two heroes instead of one for that particular pull.  In doing a 10-pull, you have 10 opportunities to get the HotM.

The main purpose of the following table is to assist you in deciding whether you should spend resources to level up the original hero and the hero's costume.
Ratings 1 & 2 : Super low priority
Rating 3: Medium Priority - Level the costume if you have the spare resources, since these heroes will see some play in some aspects of the game.
Rating 4: Level the costumes ASAP if you already have the fully leveled hero.
Rating 5: The Costume is good enough to see viable competitive play. A must to level if you have the costume.

(1 to 5, 5 being MUST level)
ElenaCaptain of FireBB1: Elena seldom sees play
AzlarKing of the LeorsBA+5: The new special Makes Azlar great in Defense and against titans.

Given how many green tanks there are, Azlar would be great in offense as well.

AzarSeeker of GodsBC1: Meh - Azar seldom sees play, Costume doesn't make Azar all that great either
IsarniaIcewitch of GlaceholmBA3: For stat bonus
RichardAxe of JusticeBB3: For stat bonus
MagniMonolith of IceAA+5: Despite reduction in damage %, the defense reduction is awesome, improving Magni in both offense, Defense and against titans.

Only downside is that Magni requires fighter Emblems, of which there are many competitors

Empires & Puzzles Hero Summoning Guide/Hack/Cheat

 We have all heard people state suspicions regarding good or bad streaks in the E&P RNG (random number generator, aka luck).  This method of performing summons is based on the Presumed streakiness of RNG in the game.  Without that presumption, this method holds no validity and mathematically makes no sense. It has worked for me on both of my accounts for 10 months now. I shared my thoughts regarding this method with some friends and then publicly when the results appeared to be reproducible.

Testing RNG in Hero Summoning

        Obviously, the whole idea regarding this method is to not spend more money than you must in order to get heroes you can use. If you were to pay for summons to test the RNG, you’d end up spending a lot more money, therefore I use the daily tokens provided in game to test whether it is worth using an EHT (Epic Hero Token), ATS (Atlantis token summons), ETS (Event token summons).  By using free summons to test the game RNG, you drastically reduce the money spent before you commit to paying for a 10x Event or Atlantis summons.  You also theoretically increase the odds of getting an event hero or HoTM (Hero of the Month.)  

Remember, this method is based on Presumed streakiness in the RNG of the game.  I save Daily tokens and use them Only for this method.  I usually have between 50 and 70 daily summons tokens on either of my accounts at all times. They are really not that difficult to Accumulate.  You have to keep in mind that rolls are rolls.  This means that when you get an amazing Elemental chest result or Titan chest result, it may be worth trying a free event/Atlantis summons to see how it turns out.  Those results would have to be pretty good to warrant trying a free Event/Atlantis summons. You only get so many of those and want to save them for testing RNG when the time is right.

How do I test the RNG for Streakiness?

First we have to look at the odds for getting a result that may indicate the RNG is streaking high.  For DST (Daily Summons Tokens), the odds of getting a common troop are listed as 16%.  The odds of getting an uncommon troop is listed as 15.7%. The odds of getting a Rare Hero are listed as 3.3% and the odds of getting a Rare troop are listed as 1.7%.  

Knowing that you now need to decide what you would use to consider the RNG streaking high.  If you use Uncommon troop and above the total percentage for that is:

Common troop = 16%

Uncommon troop = 15.7%        

Rare Hero = 3.3%

Rare Troop = 1.7%

15.7+16+3.3+1.7= 36.7%

 For Atlantis summons that’s high enough percentage to state that RNG is streaking high and to try a free Atlantis summons. For Seasonal Events, I generally use only 2* troop (Uncommon) and above so that’s

        15.7%+3.3%+1.7%= 20.7%

Now let’s compare that percentage to the chance of getting an Event or Atlantis hero.  The chance of getting an Atlantis hero of any kind is:

        3* Atlantis hero = 51.4%

4* Atlantis Hero = 14.6%

5* Featured Atlantis Hero = 1.3%

5* Hero of the Month = 1.3%

5* Non-Featured Atlantis Hero = 0.3%

Total chance of getting 3* and up Atlantis or 5* HoTM = 68.9%

You could also set the bar at 4* or above Atlantis hero and that percentage would be 17.5% to get a 4* or above Atlantis Hero.

For Events like the Winter/Christmas Seasonal Event, the odds are:

        3* Seasonal Hero = 8%

        4* Seasonal Hero = 3.2%

        5* Seasonal Hero = 0.6*

        5* Legendary Classic hero = 0.9%

        5* Hero of the Month = 1.3%

For a total of 14% chance of getting any Seasonal Event hero. Legendary Classic Hero or the HoTM.

        As you can see the bar is really high for Seasonal events with only an 11.8% chance of getting any Seasonal event hero and 2.2% chance of either Legendary Classic or Legendary HoTM.  This really helps you understand why Santa and Mother North are so difficult to get.

I strongly discourage performing any summons other than Event or Atlantis summons.  Performing Elemental or Epic hero summons will end up with you receiving a ton of duplicate Legendary classic heroes many of which will never be advanced.  I’d much rather receive a Legendary 5* hero as a consolation prize for missing Event heroes or HoTM instead of spending good money for a Classic hero summons where you have ZERO chance of getting an event or Atlantis hero.

You can also receive Legendary Classic heroes just by keeping your TC 20 stocked up and running.  I have been playing for about 2.7 years now and have at least 5 of every classic 5* hero.  That being said, you can understand that there is a lot of swearing involved when I get A Classic 5* during an event or Atlantis summons.  The Percentages are different for the Regular Monthly events such as Avalon, Guardians etc.  

Any 1* or 2* classic hero with the Daily token is a stopper. This means you stop. Yes, its difficult to stop sometimes because we all want the great heroes, but that will only end up costing you more money or wasting your free tokens if you continue.

Hero Summoning – The Process

I will use Atlantis summons for the example of how I do this.        

Step 1: Use one free Daily token.

  • If that results in a 1* or 2* troop or above, then proceed to step 2.
  • If you receive a 1* or 2* classic hero, then STOP!

Step 2: Use a second Daily token.  

  • If you receive any 1* or 2* Hero, then STOP! 
  • If that results in a 2* troop or above, then proceed to step 3.
  • If it results in a second 1* troop, repeat step 2.  
    Note: Do not repeat step 2 more than twice (Total of 3 times). If I have not received a 2* troop by that time, I STOP!

Step 3:  Use a Free Atlantis summons.

  • If you receive ANY Atlantis hero, then proceed to Step 4.
  • If you receive Any S1 3* hero, then STOP!  
  • If you Receive a 4* or above S1 hero, luck is neither good nor bad. You can try a second Free Atlantis summons, especially if it is getting close to the close of the event.
    Only continue to step 4 if you get an Atlantis hero (any) or a 5* Classic Hero. Anything other than that on the second try, STOP!

Step 4: Proceed with a 10x summons.

  • If you get your desired 5* hero (or HotM), then you may stop.
  • If you receive 5 or more Atlantis heroes of any kind mixed with 1 or more 4* Classic heroes or above, then feel free to repeat step 4. Keep in mind: NEVER exceed two 10x summons.

Hero Summoning – Conclusion

As you can see, steps 1 through 3 use only free summons. The only step that costs you anything is step 4. In this way you can really prevent a lot of spending when the RNG is trending low.  There should be no 10x Dawa summons and that is at least some comfort if you miss on your 5* event/Atlantis hero.  I generally check RNG about twice a day unless something strange happens like Multiple 4* rolls in Titan Treasure, Mystic vision, Elemental chest, etc.

I guess that’s basically it in a nutshell. It has worked for me for about 10 months now and I have actually received multiple HoTM or Event heroes with just the free single summons not having to proceed to the 10x summons. In that time, I’ve never missed getting the HoTM on both accounts.  

 I started passing it along to friends about 5 months ago to others and then publicly. So, either Get out your tinfoil hat and join the parade or watch and laugh. It should not work mathematically, but it does for me. I certainly hope that it works for you as well.

Best heroes of Empires & Puzzles

(Updated 27- February 2020)

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 go through all that work then realise that the hero was not worth all that effort?

The feeling is crap. I know that. I have been there before.

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 be honest, this list should really only be used for reference. For example, the best hero overall might not necessary be the best hero in your raid team, or titan team. Furthermore, you might not make use of the best hero all the time because the best hero might not be appropriate for the situation.

Therefore, the best heroes are typically the most VERSATILE hero. Heroes that be used in a multitude of situations.

Finally, the average chance of pulling a Legendary hero is about 1% and 1.3% for the current HOTM. To get a specific Legendary Hero will cost you quite a bit of money – the most important thing for most players is to learn how to maximise the effectiveness of the heroes that you have on hand, and how to raid effectively , attack titans effectively, and set up the best defence team with what you have.

*Heroes with available reviews, whether by myself, or others will be linked to the tables.

Best overall 5 star (Legendary) hero award

#1 Gravemaker
Due to his great strength in both offensive and defensive positions.

Best heroes on defense of Empires and puzzles  - March 2020
Best heroes on Defense – by total use.

#2 Alberich
Similarly, highly versatile in Offensive and defensive positions and against Titans. Alberich can save you in clutch positions and is a nightmare to fight against in Wars.

#3 Hel
What makes Hel so good is her ability to completely stop mana generation for your opponents. Her damage is really secondary. As obvious as it may seem, special skills form the backbone of any team composition, whether in offense or defense. Stopping your opponents from being able to generate mana is really what wins you the game.

#4, #5, #6

The lines really start to get blur at these positions – all these heroes are pretty damn awesome at what they do.

The distinction here between them and the top 3 heroes is that these 3 heroes are good overall & excellent in certain situations. But the top 3 heroes are excellent in ALL situations.

Ranking heroes below #7 is meaningless to do so. Rankings at this point becomes a matter of extremely variable opinion.

Instead take a look at your own existing roster, and see which heroes would add the greatest impact/improvement to your roster and how they would affect your playstyle.

You can also refer to these guides to determine which heroes your roster is lacking to decide which heroes you would like to upgrade first

Best 4 star (Epic) heroes

The Tournament ratings are ratings based on a 4 star (Epic) hero cap. The rest of the grading are based in comparison to the rest of the 5 star heroes available in the total hero pool

The fact that some of these heroes are still able to get A grade in certain aspects of the game is what defines them to be the top 4 star (Epic) heroes in Empires and Puzzles.

  1. After the latest balance update, this list also needs an update. I do for example believe that the rating for Sumitoto should be adjusted.
