Hero Wars requires you to form an epic team and take on Archdemon and his army. The combat is largely idle but your team composition has a major impact on the gameplay, so here are the best heroes and team compositions in Hero Wars as of February 2024.

It is common for games to feature tons of characters and let you customize your gameplay by making unique teams and trying out different playstyles. While Honkai Star Rail and Genshin Impact are quite big on consoles and PCs, many mobile players have been captivated by idle RPGs like RAID Shadow Legends, Mythic Heroes, and Hero Wars.

We recommend using characters placed in the S and A tiers for best results. Fortunately, you’ll get a lot of them for free. But even if you’re willing to try out the game’s gacha system, only these characters are worth the investment.

Having said that, team formations play a major role in Hero Wars. For instance, Elmir and Dorian aren’t great as individual characters but when paired with someone like Daredevil, the outcome is entirely different.
