Hero Wars Wiki

Heroes are an essential part of Hero Wars because they are needed for nearly all game modes. By default, all Heroes are summoned at Level 1, Promotion Rank White, and the lowest Evolution Rank (depending on the Hero). These three major indicators of the Hero's power can be found on the Hero's Avatar:

  • The Level is found at the top
  • The Promotion Rank is indicated by the border type and colour (an overview of all borders is found here)
  • The Evolution Rank is at the bottom, represented by stars

To level up a Hero, he needs to earn enough Experience through the Campaign or by receiving EXP Potions. Each level grants a stats bonus depending on the current Evolution Rank. If the Hero is equipped enough Items he can be promoted, increasing his Promotion Rank and granting him a small stats bonus. The Evolution Rank can be increased by collecting Hero Soul Stones.

Besides their Equipment, Heroes can be improved by Skins, Glyphs, Gift of the Elements, Artifacts and Pets.

Skills

Each Hero has 4 different skills:

  • White - Unlocked from the start
  • Green - Unlocked with Promotion Rank Green
  • Blue - Unlocked with Promotion Rank Blue
  • Violet - Unlocked with Promotion Rank Violet

By default, the Hero uses his skills automatically between basic attacks except for the active part of his white skill that can be activated by collected enough Energy in Battle. The other skills, with active components, have a skill timeout which determines the time between each usage.

Roles

Heroes have different roles in a team and some heroes have more than one role. Currently there are 7 roles:

  • Tank - a Tank's primary function is to fight in the front line and absorbing damage to protect the other heroes in the players team
  • Warrior - a Warrior's primary function is dealing melee damage to the opposing team
  • Marksman - a Marksman's primary function is to deal damage to the opposing team by using range projectiles
  • Support - a Support's function is to support the players team with different protective skills like barriers, shields, removing debuffs etc
  • Control - a Control's function is to control units from the opposing team with different skills like paralyzing, putting to sleep, stunning, silencing, pulling enemies towards the front line etc.
  • Mage - a Mage's primary function is to attack the opposing team with range magic attacks
  • Healer - a Healer's primary function is to heal the other heroes in the players team

Factions and Specials

In the mobile version of the game all Heroes are divided into factions (before called Special). If Heroes of the same faction are used together some of their skills are enhanced. Currently there are 6 factions:

In browser this is called Special but only a limited number of Heroes have a special. Currently there are 4 specials:

  • Blessed
  • Engineer
  • Grove Keeper
  • Undead

Order

Lower-numbered Heroes in Order Rank will always stand in front of higher ones.
