We’re here today to give you the only game guide you’ll need for this game, full of tips, codes, and information on all the game modes. All of this will ensure that you’re ready for whatever the game might throw at you.

Starting Off

Before anything, let us go through the core mechanics of Hero Wars Alliance. Hero Wars Alliance, at its core, is all about numbers. If you’ve seen the various ads that play on social media then you’ll know one of the aspects of the game, which is dragging and dropping your character to have them defeat an enemy and acquire their number.

However, what the ads don’t show you is that there are several other types of game modes in Hero Wars Alliance too. While one of them is an idle action mode where you can use the abilities of your characters, another has you collect all sorts of heroes to add to your party.

Campaign Mode

First things first, let us go through Hero Wars Alliance campaign mode. Similar to other mobile games, the campaign mode has you go through various stages, with every stage bumping up the difficulty.

The better you do in this game mode, the more stars you get at the end of the battle. Every battle also gives you a set amount of rewards depending on how many stars you get, so players are recommended to actually try here.

Additionally, starting campaign missions also uses up energy, ensuring that players don’t rush through it on the first day. Whether that’s good or bad is up to you to decide, but energy replenishes relatively quickly so you won’t have to worry about running out much.

Battling in the Campaign

Remember when we said that different game modes had different types of combats? Well, the campaign combat in Hero Wars Alliance is similar to idle RPGs in the sense that you don’t have to control your characters to have them attack.

At the start of the battle, your troops rush the enemy troops and automatically start attacking them. That doesn’t mean you don’t do anything at all, however, as every member of your party has an icon representing them at the bottom of the screen. There are two bars at the bottom of every character icon.

Troops Rush In

The green bar represents the character’s health, while the yellow one represents their ability. Once the yellow bar is filled and the icon gets on fire, you can tap it to have that character use their unique ability. Every character has a different ability, so we suggest you try all sorts of them to see which ones you like.

As for the enemies in Hero Wars Alliance, they have a number on top of their heads representing their health. The more you damage them the lower the number gets until it eventually hits zero and the enemy gets defeated.

City Gates Mode

Now that we’ve gone through the campaign mode, it’s time to go through the City Gates mode that we all know and love. This mode in Hero Wars Alliance has your hero character face off against several enemies and monsters and defeat them using the power of mathematics. No, we aren’t joking.

You start with your character at a low level, usually 13. In front of you is a tower with different floors containing enemies of different levels. Your job is to drag and drop the hero so he goes to whichever floor he has the advantage in.

Drag and Drop the Hero

For example, let us say that your level is 13. You want to go to a level where the first enemy is of a lower level. Your hero will defeat that level and the defeated enemy’s level will be added to your hero’s level, allowing you to conquer further enemies.

Alternatively, if you go to an item that is highlighted in blue and isn’t an enemy but a weapon or power-up item then you’ll acquire that power without requiring any advantage in level.

At the end of the day, this game mode relies on your ability to look ahead. If an enemy is of a lower level than you, but the enemy behind him on the same floor is of a very high level, then it might be a good idea to try a different level first.

You need to plan and strategize in Hero Wars Alliance to ensure that every enemy you come across is at a level disadvantage, as losing even one match-up will lose you the entire battle.

Going In Prepared

The city gate mode has you go through a chain of battles that come one after the other, and quitting one results in you having to start over the next time you challenge it.

Luckily, before you dive into the chain, you can see the recommended power level. If your power level doesn’t meet the requirement then you should try strengthening your party first.

Additionally, you also see the exact rewards you can expect to acquire once you conquer the mission chain, letting players who want a specific item check and see if the mission chain will give it to them.

Strengthening Your Party

Of course, you don’t have to do everything with one character, as Hero Wars Alliance features multiple heroes and creatures you can summon to fight by your side. To summon a character, you have to tap the big treasure chest in the hub menu, which will open up a screen with a bigger chest.

If you see the huge gem cost of summoning heroes then don’t fret, as you can also do one free summoning every couple of hours. This ensures that the free-to-play characters aren’t left out of the fray.

True to the infamous gacha system, which character you get in Hero Wars Alliance is completely up to chance. After all, that’s what makes games like Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail so loved by the gacha community.

Of course, if you want to ensure you plow through the opposition we recommend checking out the best Hero Wars Alliance teams.

The color of your summoned hero also determines its overall strength. Blue characters are common and not all that powerful. Golden heroes, on the other hand, are considered to be grand prizes, and only the luckiest people are able to acquire them. If you get a gold hero then you should definitely add them to your party.

Leveling Up Your Heroes

Every time you complete a battle in Hero Wars Alliance, whether it be in the campaign mode or the city gates one, the characters in your party get a set amount of experience. When they get enough they level up, strengthening all of their stats.

You can further strengthen a hero’s stats by going to the hero screen, tapping on that hero, and promoting them. Since promoting heroes requires you to spend gold, you should try and promote heroes you’re certain you’ll use.

Alternatively, you can also use experience items like the different sizes of EXP potions to instantly level your character up without having to participate in any battle. Again, the number of potions you get is limited so try to use them sparingly.

Equipping and Upgrading Abilities

In addition to getting the ability to promote your heroes, the hero screen also lets you equip the hero with the various pieces of equipment you’ve found in your journey. You can either manually tap all the different equipment slots or simply tap “Equip all” to have Hero Wars Alliance automatically equip the best items for your hero.

As you can imagine, equipping items increases the stats of your heroes, with the amount and type of stat increased depending on the piece of equipment itself.

The trick is to ensure that your strongest hero has the best equipment to ensure they can be even more of a force to be reckoned with. You might want to check out our Hero Wars Alliance tier list to get a better understanding of which heroes are good.

Equipping Items

If you want to make that character even more dangerous, then look at the left side of the hero screen to see the option to upgrade abilities and unlock new ones.

While gold is definitely important to both upgrade and unlock abilities, every hero also has a set number of skill points that you can use. Once a hero’s skill points run out you can’t level up that hero’s abilities for a while.

While you can indeed just buy more skill points, we don’t recommend it. After all, this feature was added to ensure players don’t over-level their characters from the get-go, as that would ruin the fun.
