Investing into a hero in Call of Dragons is not only a very long-term project, it also costs a lot of resources and you absolutely don’t want to end up having done all of this just for a hero that is not that good, right? For that reason I have below a frequently updated tier list of all the heroes in Call of Dragons to help you decide which heroes you invest your time in.

The Best Heroes in Call of Dragons
Alright, let’s jump right into the tier list…
Hosk offers a great buff on all stats plus his passive skill makes him an outstanding rally leader. Overall, he just does so well with buffing allies and also increasing your legion capacity that it’s hard to not choose him if you’re interested in launching a rally.
Emrys has a great active skill that deals a lot of damage to the target + paired with his extra rage accumulation when entering a battle makes him a real threat all the time when he’s out there in Call of Dragons. He’s that damage dealer you want to run, although he only works really well with cavalry units.
Nika is a great direct damage dealer but what really sticks out is that she temporarily reduces the target maximum health by up to 30%, so she does really well in any burst formation. She should run with infantry and then also offers more legion buffs that are quite sweet.
Liliya has really nice area damage from her active skill and I’d rank her even higher but one of her passive skills only buffs damage against Darklings and Dark Creatures and the other one only buffs magic units. If those skills would be universal, she would be top S Tier in Call of Dragons, without doubt.
Garwood can heal wounded units with his active skill and be paired well with any other hero that is more on the glass cannon side with less survivability, offering the full package of defensive and surviving passive skills. Should be your first choice if you need to garrison a hero in Call of Dragons.
Alistair is ‘only’ an epic hero, but actually useful with a good direct damage skill for an epic and a good buff when you attack other cities, something I see happening a lot, especially in the earlier stages of Call of Dragons, so i ranked him top of the B Tier. It’s not enough for the A Tier, considering that the legendary heroes in Call of Dragons are just so much stronger in stats and how their skills scale.
Madeline has a nice attack bonus and shield with her active skill, that you can combine very well with any other hero that has active skill damage on the primary skill. Also, the increased legion capacity and buffs make her one of the best epic heroes in Call of Dragons for me.
Waldyr has a similar active skill as Kregg but the other passive skills are so much better, buffing skill damage, grants a shield and buffs more.
Alwyn deals solid direct damage with his active skill but also adds damage over time that is quite nice and the march speed debuff can be handy to prevent the enemy from trying to get away. Just overall a super nasty kit to deal with.
Bakhar has actually a decent direct skill damage and the additional debuff that increases all damage dealt to the enemy legion, actually one of my most favorite active skills in Call of Dragons. The downside for him is, the passive skills are pretty specific on their enabling conditions that take a lot of versatility off him.
Kregg also good direct skill damage plus a delayed area damage plus an amazing buff from the first passive skill. BUT, from here the other passive skills are really tough and require you only to use flying units in your legion and you need to build barricades and alliance buildings to trigger.
Eliana has this shield and damage in her active skill but the factors are pretty low and the passive skills somewhat have specific prerequisites.
Gwanwyn has the active skill with the highest damage of all epic heroes in Call of Dragons but overall lacks some good passive skills to really make her viable. So, normally you want a epic hero that also can benefit a legendary hero. With Gwanwyn you don’t have that and although her damage is good for an epic hero, it gets outclassed by any legendary hero.
Here are the elite heroes Ordo, Kella and Chakcha – they simply can’t keep up long and you should replace them as soon as you get some epic heroes in Call of Dragons
I hope this list helps you and I will try to update it whenever there’s a new update or balancing that changes the meta in Call of Dragons. If you have further questions or anything else you want to share, please post a comment below and I’ll be happy to reply.
