Elora Wintersong

"Winter is coming!"

If magic was made of ice, it would melt, run through her veins, and freeze again. Good, but merciless, she will freeze and shatter any who cross her!

  • Elora has a 30% chance to freeze enemies on her regular attacks. Freezing lasts 2 seconds. It is unavailable on the Flash version.

Tips and Tricks

  • With 450 health and 50% armor at level 10, Elora is very durable for a mage, but still weak enough to die quickly against stronger enemies.
  • Permafrost and Ice Storm are very good for slowing down enemies, giving the towers a better chance to do damage to them.
  • Elora will usually use the Permafrost ability first, then will do damage to the helpless enemies with her Ice Storm.
  • Even though it is recommended to hold Elora behind your melee troops, she can still hold ground by herself if needed.
  • Elora attacks slowly, but hard. Use her to damage the most troublesome foes, as she can kill them quickly.
  • Elora has very good crowd control, along with a strong attack and magic damage, making good for a very large variety of situations.
  • Other ranged enemies can defeat her, but will take time to, due to her exceptional health and armor for a mage.
  • Elora has a longer range than the other ranged heroes, making her good for sniping foes.
  • Elora is slow to level up, making her more useful in elite stages where she can reach her full potential.
  • Ice Storm is effective against groups and large enemies as well, because their large hitbox forces them to take multiple hits from the spikes.
