Best heroes of Empires and 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.

#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
Zeline, Seshat, Finley (in no particular order)
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 they are good at what they do, 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. A person essentially assist to make critically posts I’d state. That is the very first time I frequented your website page and to this point? I amazed with the analysis you made to make this particular submit extraordinary. Wonderful job!

  2. Thank you for this. I just joined a team that is so knowledgeable with the heros – now I can catch up. In your Feb 20 update something is wrong with the Best Purple / Dark Heros table. It isn’t there???
