Hero Wars Counters List


Today I want to talk about the Hero Wars counters list. That is not a secret that game is designed in a way where each team and each hero has its own counter. In this article, I will be talking about specific hero counters. This doesn’t mean that using a counter hero against someone will result in 100% victory but your chances to win will be a lot higher. Make sure you share the Hero Wars counter list with you guildmates!

Youtube video down below, press on picture for visual presentation





Satori is a counter to Kharh, Jorgen, Orion, Andvari, Twins. 

Satori mainly is strong against heroes who gain energy or heroes who have high intelligence. Satori’s 4th skill adds 9 Fox marks to heroes who gain energy that means when Satori has stacked up his Fox marks he will most likely instantly kill the enemy. That means he is a perfect Hero Wars counter to many meta teams which consist of Kharh, Jorgen, Orion, Andvari or Twins but he will loose against strong Keira teams. Satori is also fun to play because he can kill half of the team instantly.



Andvari is a counter to Kharh, Twins and Cleaver (Twins and Cleaver only mobile version). 

Kharh is one of the strongest heroes in the game. Andvari was made as a counter to Kharh teams because you needed not so popular teams to beat him. Andvari power is his stuns and ability to protect the closest ally from knock-ups.  Andvari will prioritize to prevent knock-ups to ally who is in front of him otherwise ally behind him. Since many damage dealers are in second place in the composition list Andvari can protect that damage dealer from Kharh’s damage from knock-ups. On mobile version Andvari will protect all heroes behind him from knock-ups and displacements but on Facebook version he will protect himself and ally in front of him but if you use Andvari as a main tank he will protect 1 hero behind him.



Cleaver is a counter to back row enemies like Martha, Lars, Helios, Thea, etc

Cleaver is extremely hard to get hero but if you are lucky enough to get him then you will be able to counter many teams just because of his hook ability. Cleaver’s Rusty hook will grab the furthest enemy and bring that enemy to the front line. As you can imagine back lane heroes won’t last for too long in the front. The biggest problem with Cleaver is that he is extremely hard to get and once you get him most likely you will already have 3 good tanks in your team. 



Celeste is a counter to all healers, Astroth, lifesteal heroes and Yasmine.

Celeste is a must hero in your top 15. She has really good counter abilities against healers and also she can do some serious damage to enemies so spend some $ in the early game to get her in your arsenal. Celeste’s active skill Two Fates block healing to enemy heroes but what is even better her 3rd skill Limbo converts the percentage of healing into the damage. Celeste also works great against Astroth’s resurrection skill.



Use Martha as a Hero Wars counter to Jhu and probably best healer in a game

Martha is a really good counter to Jhu because her healing is bigger than Jhu’s damage when his skill I See You is active. There won’t be too many times when Jhu can kill Martha fast enough to be victorious in the battle and that’s because Martha is really tanky as a healer and her she has really strong healing power if there isn’t anything that can break Martha’s teapot. Besides that her active artifact gives armor to the whole team which makes Jhu’s life even bigger nightmare.

Martha is countered by Luther, Cleaver, Celeste and aoe damage 

Even tho Martha is considered as a bet healer in the game she has counters as well. Luther is probably the best counter to her because when he uses his Omen skill then Martha’s teapot won’t make any difference because he will break it as soon is it appears. The only problem is that Luther isn’t so widely used to make a huge difference. As already I mentioned Cleaver is a great counter to Martha with his Rusty Hook. Heroes who have some kind of aoe damage with long enough range to hit Martha’s teapot are also a great counter to get. 



Helios is a counter to all critical damage heroes like Jhu, Ishmael, Yasmine, Artemis, Jet

Helios is a great damage dealer who goes well with Orion and Dorian but also she is a huge counter to all critical heroes because of her violet skill Flaming Retribution which will damage enemy heroes if they damage herself or any allied hero. Enemy heroes who will deal with critical damage will go down pretty fast when against Helios so be careful when you choose your enemies.



Lian is a counter to Keira  

Besides that Lian is good as a second damage dealer she is also considered as a Keira’s counter pick. Whenever enemy hero damage Lian she will put that enemy to sleep for some time. Keira’s 3rd skill Dancing Blades makes Keira’s basic attacks to hit all enemies team that means each time Keira will use her attack she will be charmed for a while.



Jorgen is a counter to a weak enemy backline and energy reliable heroes like Orion, Kharh, etc

Jorgen is a real S tier hero because of his skills to manipulate the enemy’s energy. He works well against enemies like Orion who really need the energy to activate his active skill and make him shine with that aoe damage. Also Jorgen’s Leper skill will make a curse on the enemy’s team and make the furthest enemy take all team’s physical damage so without proper defense or healing enemy’s backline will be dead in seconds. 



Dorian is a counter to Twins, Kharh, Qing Mao, Cleaver

Dorian can be a real pain in one place one you choose wrong team composition against him. His aura will heal nearby allies based on their dealt damage that means you don’t want to use skills that will bring all enemy’s team closer together. Twins will often loose even to Keira because they will end up fighting Keira who will be pushed into Dorian’s aura and won’t be stoppable. There can be times when Kharh knock-ups take enemy’s damage dealer into Dorian’s aura and it will make Kharh lose a fight. Also Qing Mao will push all enemy team into Dorian’s aura so I don’t recommend using any of these heroes against Dorian especially when there is Keira on the enemy team. Also Cleaver can be countered with Dorian as I already told that earlier in this article.


Nebula and Sebastian

Nebula and Sebastian is a counter to Satori and heroes who rely on negative effects

Use Nebula as Hero Wars counter against Satori because she will remove all Satori’s Fox marks from 2 closest enemies. That means Satori won’t be able to instantly kill 2 enemy heroes. Besides that she a great damage booster for damage dealers like Orion, Keira, etc. Generally good for all negative effects putting heroes.




Yasmine is a counter to Keira, Kharh, Orion, Twins and almost all squishy damage dealers

Yasmine is the latest hero at the moment I am making this video and she is really good against squishy damage dealers because she most of the time can one-shot enemy hero when she uses her active skill Dance of Death. Even if she doesn’t one-shot enemy hero poison most likely will finish the work. Yasmine is hard countered by Helios so make sure the enemy’s team hasn’t one!

Hero Wars ARMOR and MAGIC DEFENSE e... x

Cornelius is a counter to mages like Celeste, Satori, and others

Cornelius is a good counter to mages but often can’t find his spot in most meta compositions so he gets left behind. It is just not worth investing in him since he is so situational. Otherwise he can one-shot high intelligence heroes like Satori. It is really satisfying to watch how the enemy’s hero gets one-shotted by this old smart grandpa.


These heroes aren’t only ones who would deserve to be on this Hero Wars Counters List but definitely the main ones. I hope you enjoy these kinds of articles and if you do then please subscribe to my youtube channel by pressing the subscribe button! Thanks

  1. Like!! I blog quite often and I genuinely thank you for your information. The article has truly peaked my interest.

    Lian is also a good counter to Yasmine and Jorgen. I tried facing Lian with Yasmine. And after Yasmine triggered her grey skill, she will come back charmed and will do nothing for a while. I have seen a Yasmine that didn’t do anything expect for 1 – 2 grey skills to Lian and then died without doing anything else. Jorgen’s blue skill will make anyone hitting an ally of Lian will damage Lian instead if she is the furthest one in the back. This will make the one attacking the ally to get charmed instead.
