With plenty of characters of different abilities at your disposal, creating the best possible team in Hero Wars can be tough. Assembling your team is an essential part of having success in the game, and you need to start with the basics. So what makes the best team? First, you must understand the different classes, their roles, and why they combine to create top-tier team compositions.
Hero roles explained
Combining these classes strategically creates the best possible build. Too many of one and the team will fail, not enough of another and the team will also fail. Like many good things in life, players must bring balance to their team. Heroes also have compatible artifact buffs and can work better together, this is called a synergy. In a team of 5 heroes, you’ll want 1 tank, 1 healer, 1 DPS, and can fill the final two positions with more DPS, healers, or support heroes, depending on synergies.
A tank is exactly what is sounds like. These heroes will stand in front of their teammates, absorbing as much damage as possible and protecting the heroes behind them.
DPS stands for damage per second. Though a hero may do a lot more damage than another, DPS takes into account how quickly the damage is thrown out. This means the best damage dealers not only have high damage output, but also do it quickly.
Their primary objective is to keep their hero teammates alive. They’ll be highly effective at protecting the DPS heroes as well as allowing tanks to absorb as much damage as possible.
Support heroes provide support to their teammates by buffing their teammates or de-buffing the enemies. They are indirectly involved in the fight, but essential to the success of the team.
“Twins” team – Martha, Krista, Jorgen, Lars, Astaroth
Both Krista and Lars have the ability to mark enemies, allowing everyone to deal more damage to the marked enemies. Astaroth is a great tank, and essential to any team build in Hero Wars. Martha is a phenomenal healer, capable of keeping her teammates alive. Lastly, Jorgen has the ability to drain energy from the enemy team which can be extremely helpful while the entire team is simultaneously dealing damage.
“Shadow” team – Elmir, Daredevil, Dark Star, Jet, Ziri
Dark Star uses her shadow which duplicates herself and adds another attacker. Ziri has a burrow ability which allows Elmir to get hit and jump back, creating four clones. Daredevil is also attacking, which means there can be up to 9 attackers at a time. This team is for high damage output with a lot of teammates coming from abilities.
Critical damage – Jet, Jhu, Nebula, Sebastian, Galahad
All of these heroes have high damage output and critical damage. This is another team full of straight damage. The output of DPS you will have when using this team combination is tremendous, but relies heavily on eliminating enemies as quickly as possible because their survivability isn’t the highest.
Synergy – Dorian, Astaroth, Helios, Orion, Nebula
Nebula brings buffs for the entire party, making everyone else in the team better instantly. Dorian does something similar with the skills at their disposal. As mentioned in an early team combination, Astaroth has the incredible tanking ability and will protect the other heroes very well while all these abilities are activating. Astaroth also has a revive ability in case anything, you know, goes south. Helios is a great hero that can summon support spheres to protect the team, an area of effect solar wind flaming sphere, and consistent damage to the opposition.
