One of the main objectives of RPG mobile games like Hero Wars is to build the ultimate team. With almost 50 unique heroes in the game, it can be challenging to create a team that is sure to bring you newer heights as a team only consists of five heroes. There are, however, a couple of tips you can follow, which will significantly help you in your quest to create the best team in Hero Wars.
In short, there are a couple of factors you want to consider when creating your team. These include balancing of roles – having a mix of damage dealers, supports, and tanks. Furthermore, you want to look for synergies and combos between heroes on your team to improve your team’s power and utility. Lastly, you want to look for powerful heroes, as some simply fill a specific role better than others – more details on all of these factors below, as well as examples of top tier teams created by top players.

Balance of roles
In Hero Wars, there are a total of 7 different hero roles, with each hero in the game being one of two of these roles. Players do, however, usually talk about three overall hero roles instead; tanks, damage dealers, and supports with each of the seven roles belonging to one or two of the overall roles. When creating your team, you want to keep the three overall roles in mind to balance out your team. Failing to do so will cause your team to have too much or too little of a certain aspect, such as support or damage.
The general consensus is that a great team consists of three damage dealers, one tank, and one support. By having this combination of roles, you ensure your team has enough damage to take out enemies while being able to survive hard-hitting skills and continuous damage by having a tank and a supportive hero to back everyone up. Most players choose to bring a hero with the ability to heal as their support because of the significant increase in your team’s survivability.
Synergies and combos
Another factor to consider when choosing which heroes to bring on your team is synergy. How each hero interacts and boosts other heroes on your team can be a deciding factor in battle. For example, if you bring a hero that boosts the magical damage of your team, you’re getting far more total damage output by bringing purely magical damage dealing heroes and likewise with physical damage. Furthermore, focusing entirely on magical or physical damage allows you to optimize your team’s damage output as most heroes have some skills that help other heroes with the same type of attack as them. Therefore, choosing either magical damage or physical damage for your team will ensure a higher level of synergy than were you mixing the two. You should, however, still look for specific boosts and skills that suit the team you are building.
Some heroes in Hero Wars pair up exceptionally well with other heroes because of skill combos. Certain skills in the game require some conditions to deal extra damage or apply extra effects such as Lars and Krista with Mark of Water. Lars deals 40% extra damage and applies 20% longer stuns to enemies with the Mark of Water, which Lars himself can apply to enemies, but Krista can do so as well, and at a faster pace than Lars. Therefore, Lars is way more powerful when Krista is present on the team. Examples of other powerful hero combos include K’arkh & Kai, and Cleaver & Peppy. Consider bringing a strong combo on your team to increase your chance of beating powerful teams.
Heroes for your team
Even though many heroes in Hero Wars can be useful on a team, so heroes are simply better at filling a specific role. Therefore, we recommend you keep the potential and power of each hero in mind when deciding who to bring on your team. We’ve found that these following heroes do well on almost any team, so consider using these if you get your hands on them.
