Now that we’ve talked about ways for you to get 5 star heroes in Idle Heroes, it’s time to focus on putting them to good use. In other words, we’re going to talk about an extremely important thing in this game: what’s the best lineup of heroes in Idle Heroes?
As you probably know, things are not extremely easy to rank here, mostly because it’s difficult to have all the heroes in the game and sometimes you will just have to do with what the game deals you.
But this doesn’t mean that you can’t follow some basic concepts and tips to set up the perfect team and get an awesome line-up of heroes in the game.
And that’s exactly what we’re going to talk about in today’s article: how to set up the best line-up in Idle Heroes, in order to make sure that you build an unbeatable team with the heroes that you have (and prepare for the future, constantly upgrading it).
Since not all things are created equal, I think that it’s best to focus on building the best team based on the stage you are in the game.
We are doing these because people who have been playing for months or progressed a lot will have more options that those who are just starting up, or those who are in the mid-game now.
Idle Heroes – Best Line Up for Early Game
When you’re just starting up, you can’t be very picky and you basically have to play with what you get. The first few draws will basically decide what heroes you’ll use in this stage because it’s counter-productive to level up heroes, then switch to using others.
Especially since most of the heroes you will use here won’t get to follow you to late game and not even mid game stages.
The first thing you should do here is to get your first 5-star hero: you can get Norma by simply registering an account, and she’s extremely useful in early game. Do so in order to give your line-up a boost.
Then, in the following couple of days, get all the summons you receive for free and keep all the Heroes that you collect. During this time, level up your 3 star and below heroes to level 5 maximum, while focusing your resources on maxing out Norma and whatever 4-star heroes you get.
What you want to do in early game is to get a solid team of 4-star heroes and Norma. If you get other 5-star ones during this time, it’s even better: just replace your worst four-star with the new five-star. The latter are always better when they reach the same level.
What heroes to focus on? There’s a simple way to choose your 4-star heroes, although you won’t really have much of a choice. But if you do, just look at their basic stats without any item equipped and decide which is better.
However, I would say that you’re still safe if you simply go with what you are dealt and use the first heroes you get to level up and evolve in order to minimize resource loss.
As with all stages of the game, your line-up should look like this:
1st hero: Tank with huge health, 2nd hero: Your second-best hero in terms of health, then from 3rd to last, place heroes in descending order based on their health, with the last one being the healer (Norma usually).
What you should do in early game is select your base team (the more 5-stars you have, the better), and start working on leveling them up to level 100. Once you have a full team to level 100, I would say that you are in mid-game and you can focus on greater things.
Idle Heroes – Best Line Up for Mid Game
Now it’s time to start being a little picky and plan your moves ahead. Your main goal here is to get a full 5-star team and start working on getting your first 6 star hero in the game. Chances are that you are close to getting there if you have a full team at level 100.
By now, you probably know that the game holds various events regularly, and it’s during these events when your hero line-up can thrive. So start saving shards and scrolls for events and use them to get a boost from them.
This way, you will start getting easy 5 star heroes and materials required to get your first 6 star.
The line-up of heroes remains the same that you have used in early game – but you should always replace your worst hero with a new 5 star or rarer, when you get them.
At this point, it’s worth noting that 1 Tank is usually enough in the game and you should use an assassin or warrior as the second tank (second position). You should always have one healer and the rest – damage dealers.
Work to leveling up your heroes, get 6 star ones and tier them up, planning for late game when you start working on 6 star and above.
Idle Heroes – Best Line Up for Late Game
You enter the late game stages when you have a full or almost full line-up of 6 star heroes, with hopes to start working them up to 7 stars and all the way to 10 stars.
Getting here takes a lot of time and dedication (and maybe money), but it’s from now on that the real challenge begins, because progress will be extremely slow.
It’s best to get here after doing all the planning in the previous two stages, so that you don’t have to start over with a hero.
Getting to 6 stars takes a lot of time and leveling these up takes even more, so you’d better do it right from the first try. But don’t panic if you still find replacements to make – regular coins and essence is eventually gained!
So when you get to the late game stages, your line-up will be similar in concept with the previous two. I have noticed that warriors tend to become good at this part of the game, so this is good to keep in mind. Work on your heroes, level them up and take them to 10 stars one at a time.
So these would be our tips and tricks for the best line-up of heroes in Idle Heroes. If you have other things to add, tips to share with fellow players or specific Heroes to name as must have in one’s team, don’t hesitate to let us know by sharing a comment below.
