Hero Wars Counters – Best Counter Hero To Each Hero

hero wars hero counter list

There are heroes and hero setups in Hero Wars that are nasty to play against because they are either very strong or have strong synergy – but the cool thing in Hero Wars is that you can beat anything, so I wanted to write this guide as the counterpart of my team synergy guide where I have the strongest hero combos. In this guide, we talk about the counters to them so you have a good overview how to beat any setup in Hero Wars.

Countering In Hero Wars

There are several different ways to counter in Hero Wars, either you have a hard counter or a soft counter.

hard counter is basically a hero that can shut down another hero or works really effective against a certain hero.

soft counter is a hero that will take away the benefits of a certain hero or hero combo, like preventing them to build their synergies or targeting backline heroes.

I wanted to make a good overview so you can find your counters fast and reliable here in this guide, so you will see a counter for most heroes (I only took the strong ones that you need to be able to counter) and give you hard counters and soft counters depending how they are possible so you can get the option you need.

Hero Counter List

So, here’s the list. On the left side you see the hero you want to counter and on the right side you see the options you have to counter that hero.

Hero Hard Counter Soft Counter
Asteroth Celeste will hard counter Asteroth as she can deny his resurrection ability so he will not be able to revive efficiently.
Celeste Cornelius directly damages intelligence heroes with insane amount of damage and can basically one-shot Celeste
Cleaver Andvari protects his allies against Cleaver’s skill with his shielding. Dorian heals the whole team against Cleaver’s ability with his Vampiric Aura. Cleaver will basically heal more of the enemy team than dealing damage with Dorian in place
Dorian Celeste can not only block the healing from Dorian’s Vampiric Aura, she also converts it into magical damage that will really hurt the enemy team. Jorgen redirects damage to the backline so he can help the team to directly attack Dorian early in the battle and take him down faster.
Helios Cleaver can soft counter Helios as he can directly attack backline heroes with his active skill.
Ishmael Celeste can will block healing and turn it as magical damage against Ishmael. Helios soft counters whenever Ishmael crits will deal damage wich accumulates fast.
Jet Helios soft counters whenever Ishmael crits will deal damage wich accumulates fast.
Jhu Martha prevents Jhu snowballing through her allies and her high healthpool and area healing prevents Jhu cutting through her team.
Jorgen Satori will hard counter as he will add his mark and one-shot Jorgen at a point whenever Jorgen gains extra energy.
Keira Lian is a hard counter as she will directly charm Keira whenever she receives damage from her.
Khar’h Andvari protects his team by using his shield protection.

Satori will hard counter as he will add his mark and one-shot Khar’h at a point whenever Khar’h gains extra energy.

Jorgen with his energy manipulation will drain a lot of energy from Khar’h.
Twins (Krista/Lars) Andvari can deny Lars’ active skill directly.

Satori will hard counter as he will add his mark and one-shot the twins whenever they gain extra energy.

Cleaver can soft counter twins as he can directly attack backline heroes with his active skill.

Dorian can keep his team up with his Vampiric Aura.

Markus Celeste can will block healing and turn it as magical damage against Markus.
Martha Celeste can will block healing and turn it as magical damage against Martha. Cleaver can soft counter twins as he can directly attack backline heroes with his active skill.

Luther is able to jump to the backline and directly attack Martha.

Orion Satori will hard counter as he will add his mark and one-shot Orion whenever Orion gain extra energy. Jorgen with his energy manipulation will drain a lot of energy from Orion.
Satori Cornelius directly damages intelligence heroes with insane amount of damage and can basically one-shot Satori Nebula & Celeste
Thea Cleaver can soft counter twins as he can directly attack backline heroes with his active skill.
Yasmine Celeste can purity her allies and remove Yasmine’s poison so she is a hard counter.

Helios hard counters as well whenever a crit happens, Yasmine will get damage dealt.

Please mind that I only included the main meta setups you will frequently run into and not every single hero out there. If you have problems with a certain setup, please leave a commment below and I will give you a recommendation.

  1. This list is either outstanding or just meh, depending on how you answer this question: are these matchups and counters based off the Mobile version or the Facebook/Web version?

  2. Morrigan is OP against Dante, as she can summon more allies. That will give her a chance to completely be unaffected by Dante’s Instrument of fate

  3. Helios is AMAZING against crit hit teams and heroes because his violet skill damages the hero that crit hit’s your team

  4. my opinion on Dante would be jorden and Phobos but Phobos attacks the one with the most physical damage so I would say Yasmine and jorden because jorden can stop Dante from gaining energy while Yasmine (or Phobos but in my opinion not as great as Yasmine) attacks him.

    • I’m not 100% sure, but Dante should be weak against magic. Get some heavy magical damage dealers, enough to beat Dante. Use Jorgen too, since Jorgen will drain energy from Dante.

  5. He is an awesome hero these days. Why don’t u use him instead? If u have Martha then make sure to use her with Danate.

  6. Faceless and Lian are both hard counters to Luther, Faceless will levitate and drop him back onto his team-mates, Lian will keep him charmed so he cannot attack her while she pummels him with her attacks.

  7. In my opinion Yasmine’s hard counter is also Corvus and his totem. Killing her within seconds. Works much better than Celeste’s purify.
    Please extend this list for other heroes. Eg. what about Deante after lifting? He become annoying hero recently.

    • Dante has become very annoying, I agree. Suggestions I have seen include magic dealers, but no real supporting evidence for this.

      • I am glad you find him annoying. He is on my strongest team. He deals a lot of damage, but not as much as Yasmine.

    • Add to that Celeste + Maya. I’ve had very successful Jasmine blocks when Yasmine tries to eat the flower and gets destroyed. Just have to keep Maya just a little ahead of celeste to force the target.
