Empires and Puzzles Asterius

Special Skill: Brutal Bull Rush

Mana Speed: Average (10 tiles)

  • Deals 235% damage to the target and nearby enemies.
  • Reduces the duration of target and nearby enemy’s buffs for 1 turn
  • The target and nearby enemies receive Corrosive Burn for 3 turns. The Corrosive Burn deals 88 Burn damage and lowers the target’s defence by  -10% each turn.

Asterius Hero Review:

Corrosive burn does 264 burn damage over 3 turns, (as compared to 298/2 turns for Gravemaker and 224/2 turns for Clarissa).

Most other average heroes does 270% damage to the target and nearby enemies (for similar skillsets).

Overall Asterius has slightly better damage output compared to heroes with similar skill sets.

Asterius Offensive raid Review

In terms of the current minion / extra health heavy meta, I would argue that Asterius does too little damage to be really great in an attacker’s role.

At average speed, Asterius would not deal enough damage against Bera, Freya or Telluria’s minions.

I would argue that not being able to take our those tank and flanks quick enough would result in them quickly replacing the minions that Asterius takes out.

The defense reduction is -10%/-20%/-30% over the period of 3 turns. There are not many Legendary fire heroes that have defense reduction, so Asterius gains some points in this regard

Asterius in Defense Team Review

Asterius only fulfils the “help to kill attackers faster” criteria of a tank – but at best is mediocre – relatively so-so damage, and moderate defense reduction.

Asterius does fulfil the damage criteria of a flank.

Asterius is not recommended at the wings – he gets to activate his special skill for sure, but might not be enough damage for any significant impact

Asterius Vs Titan Review

Asterius has relatively high attack stats, and a defence reduction.

Compared to the other 5 star Fire hero with defense reduction (Santa), Asterius is definitely an upgrade.

However, the defence reduction is too unreliable. Harpoons have a consistent -34% defense for full 3 turns. (Valkyrie’s bane has more)
