Which are the best heroes? Which heroes should I invest in and which ones can I avoid?
I tried to separate the best heroes available at the moment, some are optional, not necessarily because they are bad but because they have a smaller set of applications available. Ragnar and Ranger are good heroes, but they have a relevant restriction on matching, which makes them useful only if a certain number of conditionals occur. For example: Ragnar relies heavily on having control heroes with him, like Brave for example. This lack of flexibility can make him less of a “must have” than others.
The main idea of this hero chart is to present a short summary of the main function of each hero and some suggestions on how they should be used. Nothing here is biblical, some suggestions are situational, so join our chat or reddit and ask your questions.
At Rise of Empires we had the release of Poison Master and Healer.
Both are very nice heroes, Poison Master being the highlight, as it is a very robust damage carry with a very specific mechanics that create a whole new branch of sinergy.
Poison Master is a archer hero, with a very powerful debuff mechanics. He is able to nerf enemy damage, cut healing and supress. He has a very very powerful sinergy with heroes with high casting rates of skill, like Scarlet Reaver, Army Breaker, Avalanche and of course Healer. It came from Last Shelter to Rise of empires with significant nerfs. In LSS he came unbeatable and as a new game reference, completely unbalancing the scenario. However in ROE it was released with significantly lower status. He remains a good hero, a new meta that is worth having, as we can get out of the hegemony of the need for avalanche and warhammer as sources of damage.
Healer is a footman hero, her name already say very much: its a very strong source of healing. It has a very specific mechanic that ends up forcing the first line to be composed of heroes with good damage capacity. She absorbs some of the damage taken by the first lane and converts some of the damage dealt by the first lane as healing for itself. In addition, she has the possibility to nerf the opponent’s damage as well as increase the damage taken by them as well. In LSS she is an extremely unbalanced hero, in ROE she came as a decent hero with a different mechanic, which, as in Poison Master, opens up a range of new options.
