Watcher of Realms Best Heroes Tier List – with Magmus

Watcher of Realms has a lot of heroes and also a lot of game modes – hard to decide which heroes are overall good and useful, right? Well, I have decided to make this tier list of her to give you a good overview what heroes are good in Watcher of Realms and which ones are rather meh.

Looking at how much time and resources it takes to build a hero, this should help you decide which ones you invest in and which ones you can rather skip.

The Best Heroes in Watcher of Realms

Alright, below you will find the full list of all the heroes I have evaluated and tested so far in Watcher of Realms and if you open the ‘Show More’ of a hero, you will see a short description and how they do in certain game modes.

Update! Added the new hero Magmus.

Please also make sure to check out my freshly udpated tier list for the artifacts in Watcher of Realms here.

Here is the new faction at a glance:

dolores
Dolores
S+
The thing with Dolores is that her healing is not enough to make her heal alone but a generally good base healing that bases on target stats as well so she can run end-game with maxed legendaries as well. Her main treat is her ultimate that will increase the attack of all allies in range (also by target stats percentage) and she will bump up everyone and is useful practically everywhere and up to end-game..

Deal area damage but that's not too impressive - the main reason she is here is that she can grant fatal immunity to allies which last and the way she applies them comes out to be really helpful espcially when you get her build to a point where the effect jumps and applies it to all allies in range. Her healing is overall nothing to really count on as the trigger is quite problematic..

There is multiple aspects to him - first of all he deals a ton of damage but most of his kit is also designed to use him as a last resort to prevent enemies passing and let him die to re-deploy him. He does what he does but needs the timig and enough players struggle with him at first simply because he seems to be really squishy (until you get to the point where you let him die enough and re-deploy him and just accept that as his kit the way it is). The revival times will go up each time and he is rather a 'you-shall-not-pass' hero than one to deploy and forget for the battle..

Solid debuffs and damage but quite high placement costs that I don't think are justified enough to rank him hier in this tier list in Watcher of Realms..

The freezing is nice and the area damage as well, but the overall damage falls off quite soon and then her only real use-case is freezing and slowing down enemies and I think that is not that great for taking up a slot.

He needs to kill with his ultimate or he will die, simple at that. So his ultimate is more like a burst if you have a wave of mobs incoming. If there are none, your healer has a lot to deal with to keep him alive as his ultimate will kill him..

Designed as a defender for Arena to deal damage through his Plague but he can't defend enough and you need a ton of support to keep him up or another tank. I rather have a solid tank and use the extra spot for a good damage dealer instead..

Like a rage battery for the other heroes but honestly why have a hero slot occupied for some extra rage generation of allies? Rather use a hero that actually does something and be better off. I mean her ultimate will restore a total 12% rage for 2 allies, that's not really much..

Theoretically good but her healing range makes it useless in most cases and her fixed scaling is not healing it. Do yoursel a favor and don't use her, sorry to point that out like this but there are so many more useful defenders in the game that you can use, even early on, that I can't really see the point in building her....

Let's put aside a few special occasions where you would need this, but the only way he is alright is when you build him for damage. But why would you build a frankenstein-defender-damage hero if you could just do a proper damage dealer fighter instead?!.

Conclusion

I hope this tier list helps you decide what heroes to run but also what heroes are worth your time and resources to invest in – I will update this tier list frequently so make sure to check back with every update to be up to date with the best heroes in Watcher of Realms. If you have any questions, notes or anything else you feel that needs to be added here, please post a comment below and I will be happy to reply.

  1. A few epic heroes worth revisiting: Baron, Idril, Nissandei.

    Baron is on the same level as Olague. Even if you never 6* him, he’s completely viable in nearly all content. In Tide 130+, I was surprised to see him my top damage dealer a few times, dishing out incomprehensible damage. Stat priority is HP, then DEF, then Rage Regen. I use a lv 25 Heart of Thorn on him, but most artifacts are viable if you’re just looking for a solid defender.

    Idril is unfathomably useful in so many parts of the game. I feel like she deserves a bit more recognition for Raids, but shines in Campaign as well. She’s almost a requirement for gear raid 3 if you’re f2p.

    Nissandei’s usefulness is niche. But I would consider her the strongest AOE healer in the game. With the release of Immortal Codex check out her scores when healing the Eona statues. Her rating otherwise is probably accurate, it just didn’t look like you’d ever used her.
