Full Hero Wars tier list

With almost 50 unique heroes in the game and more being added continuously – all with their own skillset and playstyle, it can be overwhelming when trying to figure out which heroes to invest your resources into and bring on your team.

Therefore, we’ve created this Hero Wars tier list to give you an overview of each hero’s potential in the game overall.

Using this tier list, we believe you have a high chance of spending your resources more efficiently and thereby progress faster through the game.

This tier list ranks each hero from Hero Wars in either S, A, B, C, or D tier.

When choosing which heroes to bring onto your team, you should also keep other factors in mind than just a hero’s tier – learn more about this in our team building guide.

Here is a short rundown of what each tier represents.

S tier – Heroes in the S-tier are the best in the game. All these heroes will do well on any team, and are sure to help you progress through the game fast. Putting any S-tier hero on your team and spending resources on them is an excellent idea.

A tier – Heroes in the A-tier perform exceptionally well in battle. You can, with great certainty, use heroes from this tier on your team for a long time without issues. Some combinations of heroes in this tier might even outperform some S-tier heroes.

B tier – Heroes in the B-tier perform as you’d expect from an average hero. They are not exceptionally strong but are not weak, either. B-tier heroes are fine to just for a while, but you should aim to replace them at some point.

C tier – Heroes in the C-tier are not very powerful, but can be used at the beginning of the game. We do, however, not recommend you spend significant resources on C-tier heroes as you want to replace them soon.

D tier – Heroes in the D-tier are way below average in terms of power and potential. You should aim to replace these heroes as soon as possible, and definitely shouldn’t spend significant any resources on these heroes.

Heroes with a + next to their rank are even stronger ore more useful than their assigned rank.

Best tank heroes

Tank heroes are a great addition to any team as they bring lots of defenses, shielding your damage dealers and supports from being taken out early in a battle.

Many tank heroes have crowd control or support skills, as well.

Here are some of the very best tank heroes in Hero Wars.


Astaroth

If your team struggles with enemy damage, Astaroth is one of the best additions you can make to your team.

Astaroth only has one skill that deals damage, but he has several incredible tanky abilities.

Firstly, his shield, Flame Veil, shields the entire team from significant physical damage.

Furthermore, his passive skill, Demon’s Allegiance, makes Astaroth tank a considerable percentage of the damage the hero with the least health left takes and even at a reduced rate.

Lastly, Astaroth Last Word skills allow him to resurrect a fallen ally once per match, including himself, which is an incredible utility to have in battle.

Hero Wars Astaroth hero

Cleaver

Tankiness, control, and damage is what Cleaver brings to your team.

Cleaver has two control abilities, which both deal damage.

The first is Rusty Hook, which pulls and enemy to him, shielding the rest of your team from that hero.

His other control skill is Mutilation, which damages and stuns an entire area in front of him.

Besides his useful skills, Cleaver’s stats are high, especially his defenses, making him an incredible tank.

Hero Wars Cleaver hero

Best attacker heroes

Teams without any attacker heroes can find themselves in a struggle at times, as they simply don’t have enough damage output.

Attacker heroes generally have lower defenses and no supportive abilities but do have one thing, damage.

Here are some of the very best attacker heroes in Hero Wars.


Krista

Krista is a powerful mage with lots of spells that deal significant damage.

Because of her stats and her skills, she dishes out a lot of damage through a battle, making her a fantastic addition to your team if you need more damage.

Krista is best paired with Lars, as he can activate the marks Krista leaves on enemies with some skills.

Hero Wars Krista hero

Jhu

Another great attacker hero in Hero Wars is Jhu, a marksman with skills that boost his ranged attack.

His skill, You will not stop me, significantly increases his attack speed and makes him invulnerable while active.

His other skills revolve around the same playstyle, as he has a skill that makes him deal true damage, one that increases his attack power and makes him focus ranged enemies, and lastly, a skill that heals him.

Besides that, Jhu has great attack stats, but like many attacker heroes, he lacks a bit on the defense side.

Hero Wars Jhu hero

Best support heroes

Supportive heroes are often underrated by players, as they generally don’t have much damage output and are very squishy.

However, some support heroes can make a major difference on a team because of their useful support skills.

Therefore, you should consider adding support heroes to your team if you find yourself stuck or want to optimize your team.

Here are some of the very best support heroes in the game.


Jorgen

In terms of pure support and utility, Jorgen is definitely a hero to consider if you are looking for just that on your team.

Besides being able to summon a Skull that renders affected enemies unable to regain energy for a while, he also has the ability to steal energy from the enemy and put a shield on an ally, which also makes that hero regain energy twice as fast.

Lastly, Jorgen can put a powerful curse on an enemy backline hero, making you able to take down the squishy targets on the enemy team fast.

Hero Wars Jorgen hero

Martha

If you’re not looking for a purely supportive hero, then Martha is an excellent choice for your team.

She combines both being tanky and being a support.

Martha’s first skill, Foremother’s Oath, increases her allies’ speed by 240%, but her strength lies in her healing totem, which can only be destroyed by AoE attacks.

Furthermore, Martha can heal herself, making her even harder to take down, considering her tanky stats.

Hero Wars Martha hero

  1. I

    i don’t agree with a few of the categorizations. First, heidi is not a good hero, and should be placed in either c or d tier. Second, Maya is also not a good hero, i don’t know why did you put her in the a tier. She should be in B or C tier. She deal damage, yes, but if you level her up to the top, she is not very good. Third, Corvus is an extremely good tank, with very high health. The only problem is that he doesn’t has the required armor, but he can quickly kill DPS heroes like kiera or yasmine or helios. Fourth, ziri is a very good tank with very high health like corvus, and have even more armor, and should be placed in either A tier or A+. Then jet is a very good hero, and a jet-sebestian-kiera team can literally destroy the enemy team within seconds, if their is no Helios. Also jet works very good with a crit-hit hero. Lastly, dante is a good damage dealer with a very high dogde(second after heidi, in fact). He should be placed in A or B tier.

    1. Nokkhao

      Heidi is ranked as grade A for her dodge power, and only for dodge team IMO

    2. Juggler

      Heidi is extremely good if you have two healers in the team. My guild has a guy set up two teams to deal with physial or mage teams that can guarantee him the #1 position in Arena. His teams are:

      1. Aurora + Markus + Celeste + Sebastian + Heidi
      2. Aurora + Markus + Celeste + Sebastian + Orian

      His pet patron is either Axel or Cain.

      By switching only Heidi and Orian in those two teams, he can easily defeat almost any Physical / Mage team.

      Heidi’s damage output is just crazy with the support of two healers.

  2. KFL20210521

    I don’t see Tristan. Also, I don’t recognize Isaac. Also, I think Ziri should be at least A Tier. She’s my strongest hero right now. Morrigan should be at least Tier B, she’s pretty strong when placed in the right team.

    1. Greatness

      Tristian is on Mobile, not Web. And my Ziri is at Violet Rank-she’s one of 3 tanks I have-Galahad and Asaroth are the other two-she does little to no damage, but has the highest health of any of my tanks, which is why I use her. B rank is fine for her.

  3. Jake

    Curious why you think Daredevil is so low… she can take out a tank with one special ability. She’s my most powerful marksman

    1. Nokkhao

      In the late game, (lvl 100+) Daredevil is not that powerful.

  4. elijah abbott

    i think an astaroth team is great im level 75!! ???

  5. herowarsboss

    im on 72 and galahad does 15819 damage and chabba does 11859 damage

  6. ihawk110

    I suggest adding Tristan to the ranking. K thanks

    1. Cletis007

      I was looking for Tristan and couldn’t find info on any threads for him..

  7. Ryan

    Noticed you left out Tristan. Is he newer than when you posted this?

  8. 1232324

    Í’m level 42 and for me Phobos is really good.

  9. 20070126

    Nah bruh i think ginger is great for low lev shes my top person her ability is crazy good idk for like really high people but im like around 37 and she great

    1. Trae

      I just got into this game as of the last month or two and Ginger is definitely good at the level you mentioned but she starts to get a good amount of separation (For the worse) when you start unlocking the better characters. Having read this and other articles I have decided to take the wrong approach and will be rearranging what I spend resources on!

  10. matt

    Thanks for your insightful article. Question: Is this list in an order within each lettered tier, or is each hero within the grade group in no specific order?
