List of best heroes in Art of War: Legions

Here is our list of best heroes in Art of War: Legions. The top best heroes are decided based on how they can perform in terms of offense and defense. The second thing we look at while selecting these heroes are the overall impact they have on the battle and whether they can win your battles or not.

  • Legendary Skill – Moonlight Dance
    • Every once in a while, Selene will mobilize the power of the moon to deal damage to the enemies in the front line and weaken their attack.


Similar to Selene, Chione is one of the few characters who excel at both offense and defense.

    • At the same time, when Aly cumulative loss 90% of her life, all enemies on the battlefield will be bewildered (stunned) for 2 seconds, and the ignited enemies will be detonated (bewilder and detonate effects only trigger once per battle), damaging the enemy himself and enemy units around him (the damage caused by detonation will not cause the enemy to be ignited).
    • After the ignited enemy is detonated, the ignition effect on him will disappear.

  • Legendary Skill – The Wrath of God
    • Zeus’s lightning strikes will cause extra damage to troops proportional to their maximum health.


  • Class – Warrior
  • Active Skill – The King’s Demeanor
    • Stone Sheath mode: Arthur uses the power of stone, causing damage and casting a shield that protects allies from several hits.
    • After use of this power, Arthur switches to Excalibur Radiance mode, with the same Damage but Attack Increase instead of Resistance.
    • After use of this power, Arthur switches to Stone Sheath mode.
