Elora Wintersong
is a hero unit in Kingdom Rush. She must be unlocked by buying the Premium Content or purchased with $4.99 (iOS versions).


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!

Tips and Tricks

  • Elora is a very squishy hero, not as much as Magnus Spellbane 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 if 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 armour 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.


  • Ice, ice, baby!
  • Winter is coming!
  • It's chilling time!
  • Cool!
  • (upon death) Nooo!


  • "Winter is coming" - Motto of the House of Stark in A Song of Ice and Fire.
  • "Ice, ice, baby" - The name and lyric of a song by rapper Vanilla Ice. The song is well known for sharing the baseline of the song Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie.
  • "Cool!" - Meaning both cold and awesome.
  • "It's chilling time!" - A sleight on the phrase "It's clobberin' time!", the catch phrase of choice for The Thing from Marvel series The Fantastic Four. This phrase would later be used in it's original format for Frontiers hero Grawl.
  • Elora Wintersong can kill a goblin in one shot at level one and at level 10 she can kill a goblin in a melee battle in one shot on easy or normal.
