Hero Wars Astaroth guide
Astaroth guide Summary
Astaroth’s main role is a tank and he is probably the best tank in the game and you should always level him up. Soulstones are easily obtainable from the early stages of campaign missions so make sure you evolve him as soon as possible. Astaroth’s skills offer a lot of protection for allies, he is pretty tanky and his violet skill Last word can bring one ally back in the game. The hardest part for Astaroth is to level up all his skins to make him an absolute beast. He isn’t situational so he will be beneficial in all team compositions. This one maybe isn’t that important for most of you but he also looks like a real badass. Read further to know all about the Hero Wars Astaroth guide.
Flame Veil – Casts a shield that blocks physical damage on the entire team. The shield’s capacity is shared between all team members.
Devastation – Astaroth spews a flare of hellfire, burning up some of the energy accumulated by the furthest enemy. Skill is level dependent
Demon’s Allegiance – Passive skill. Astaroth maintains a connection with the ally who has the least health left and takes on a part of the physical damage inflicted against that ally. The transferred damage is also reduced.
Last Word – Once per battle, Astaroth resurrects a fallen ally (or himself).
As already mentioned in the summary he has 4 skins – Default skin which gives strength, Devil skin which gives magic attack, Barbarian skin which gives armor and Lunar skin which gives magic defense. Level up skins in this order to make most of him – Default skin -> Barbarian skin -> Lunar skin -> Devil skin.
Astaroth soulstones can be obtained in the early stages of the game by completing campaign missions. I would recommend paying some emeralds on hero missions renewal for one time to collect his soulstones faster. On the Facebook version, you can get Astaroth soulstones from caskets as well but if you have already unlocked Astarothyou can level him up with Cross-server trophies.
I would recommend upgrading all his artifacts as soon as possible. You should always focus to make your tank and main damage dealer artifacts as a priority. In my opinion, all his artifacts are really good but I would prioritize Scythe of Redemption because it gives a great armor boost for the whole team. Then you should go for Defender’s Covenant to make Astaroth stay even longer in the fight and as a last priority would be Ring of Strength.
Scythe of Redemtion gives armor
Defender’s Covenant gives armor and magic defense
Ring of Strength gives strength
Glyphs order for Astaroth
Astaroth is a tank that means his main goal should be to be as tanky as possible to stay longer on the battlefield and absorb as much damage as possible. That means you should upgrade glyphs in this order – Armor-> Magic defense -> Health-> Strength -> Magic attack to make most of him.
