I think, like many others here that Gravemaker and Hel are the best two. I wish I had them. But as somebody said, the best hero is one that you have. I’ll go through the HOTM’s that I have and give my opinion on them.
Natalya-I really like her even if some don’t, with a strong troop she does over 1000 damage which bypasses defense buffs with a big mana generation debuff. I’ve given her emblems and she’s in my defence team.
Delilah-Another great Hotm in my opinion. The minions make her very fun to play with. I’ve given her emblems and she’s in my defence team.
Aeron-Not a bad Hotm at all. The heal is a little low but still helpful and the resist skill can be very useful. The fact his healing doesn’t increase if you give him emblems is disappointing.
Alasie-A better sniper than Magni in my opinion. I’m still delighted that I got her. I’ve given her emblems
Drake Fong-Only got him recently and no materials to ascend him. I will give him emblems when I max him as I think he’s very strong.
Aegir-Brilliant since the buff. I’ve given him emblems and he’s in my defence team as tank.
Zimkitha-The hit is weak but the attack buff is useful but the fast cleanse is so useful. I’ve given her emblems and she’s in my defence team.
Frida-The average mana is her only slight negative but because she’s average her hit is harder than Evelyns. A hit from her then Alasie and it’s goodbye most heroes. She also debuffs. I wish I’d emblems for her but Aegir gets them as tank.
Anzogh-Not the greatest Hotm ever but I like him. He’s no difference maker to a roster but I’m glad I got him. I’m even thinking of giving him emblems but holding off for now and might give them to Sartana.
Margaret-Probably my weakest Hotm. If you’re attacking a team full of snipers (especially Alasie or Magni) then she’s gold-dust. Other than that she’s a bit of a passenger.
Ranvir-Wu Kong was getting killed very easily by the tougher titans. Now I’ve a sturdier upgrade. Delighted to get him.
Seshat-The initial hit is slightly down in power on other snipers but overall I think that she’s wonderful.
Out of my Hotm’s its easy enough to pick the weakest (Margaret) even though I’m glad that I got her. Picking the strongest is tougher, different heroes shine in different circumstances. I’ve always favoured healers and snipers when raiding but then a non-sniper Frida makes Alasie even better and I use Frida on titans but not Alasie. Zimkitha with her cleanse has helped me in raiding immeasurably but her weak hit is less valuable than her attack buff. I love the uniqueness of Natalya. Delilah is such a fun hero. Aeron is second tier but I love the resist skill. Aegir is a brilliant tank and great in all circumstances really. Ranvir is king of titans for me now but I never use him raiding. Seshat is a souped up Domitia and is fantastic. I couldn’t pick one of these.
