Unfortunately, you cannot retire heroes of rare-rarity of higher.

However, there is still a way to clear them from your bag.

Head into Ranhorn and enter the Temple of Ascension.

Go ahead and ascend any rare heroes to rare-plus.

Because the requirement for this type of ascension is copies of the same hero, you can safely ascend as many rares to rare-pluses as you want.

You should, however, not mindlessly ascend any rare-plus to elite, as rare-plus are used faction-wide when ascending to elite.

Ascending your spare rares to rare-pluses should clear up plenty of space in your bag.
