Overview

"You zombies need to be cleansed!"

Theresa is a Guardian who shoots high-damage light beam projectiles at quick rates. Starting from level 5, she can buff herself using her activated ability Blessing of Strength and starting from level 8, Theresa will passively recover some base HP after each wave which can ignore base HP limits. She costs 615$ in game and 500G$ in the shop. She is the cheapest Guardian to unlock.

"A miracle in the skies and the battlefield. Theresa strikes zombies with a bow with upmost upmost precision. You can certainly rely on her (and angels in general) to defend your base"

Tactics

  • Theresa's ability is extremely strong, capable of thinning out the hard wave, especially wave 79. Try to use the ability in the correct timing.
  • Theresa's Blessing of Health is less effective on harder difficulties, due to the lack of health to be recovered.
  • Theresa has little capability as a support Guardian, her main purpose is to deal damage.
    • Theresa's only support capability is the aforementioned Blessing of Health.

Trivia

  • She is both the first guardian with a skin and the first tower overall to have a skin, coming from a Halloween code.
  • At level 15, Theresa can reach up to 6,150 DPS with her ability, assuming that she hasn't been buffed by Alien or Beacon.
    • This make her have the highest DPS out of all other Guardians with abilities
    • She also has the largest range of all towers, reaching up to a whopping 96 (128 with Ruby Theresa) with her ability at level 15.
    • Theresa's new Ruby form gives her 176,000 DPS with the ability.
