Heroes Charge: Recommended Heroes for Normal and Hard Crusades


Normal and Hard Crusades are actually the same, what makes it feels harder is because HP and Energy regeneration is disabled, so you'll need a little planning on when to use your heroes' Ultimate Skills.

Don't hesitate to try the Hard mode for 2x rewards, but if things gets too difficult, just use the "Demote" option to continue your crusade progress under Normal mode.

- Normal and Hard Crusade Heroes -

Some Quick Tips:
   - Number 1 rule: Use "RETREAT" if one of your main heroes is dead!
   - Number 2 rule: Use "RETREAT" if your team is at a disadvantage!
   - Number 3 rule: Use "RETREAT" if you want to try a different strategy ("for learning purposes hehe").
   - Join a guild and hire Death Knight or Death Mage, but if you have them already, hire any hero you need (refer to the list below).

   - Do Smart Skill Prioritization: Early game tip to make your heroes effective in battle, refer HERE to learn which skills to max first or left untouched at the moment.

   - Avoid using "Auto Fights" unless you really intend to.
   - For the first 1 to 5 stages, try to fill all of your heroes' Energy bars, including your reserves.

What Are Reserves?
   - Optional heroes that might be useful in certain situations. Charge their "Energy Bars" in the beginning then keep them as your reserves, fire them off if needed. This could be useful for Hard Crusades since Energy doesn't regenerate after fights.
   - Ex: Replacing Commando with Chaplain: Chaplain is your reserve hero, but keep her Energy full from the start in case you need healing later on.

   - It is actually ok to use more than 5 heroes. It's like basketball, you have your starting 5, 6th man (Chaplain), and your reserves. ^^

Labeling Guide
   - Highly Recommended Heroes = Popular crusade heroes that are viable for Normal and Hard Crusades. Heroes that can nicely fill up their energy gauge without relying on regeneration, heroes with great utility for their teammates, and more.
   - Possible Alternatives = Nice heroes that can be mixed or used as alternatives to the recommended ones. Can be used for Hard Crusades, but limit only to 1 or 2 (use any of them as reserves though).

Final Notes:
   - Heroes with Legendary Skills are NOT considered here for now to give mid to near high level players a better and accurate options. I will consider them if needed, but under a different bracket.

   - These are not the only heroes out there that can be used for Normal/Hard Crusades. I probably missed some Heroes that are also useful, but the above heroes should be enough. Learn, experiment, and share. Good Luck Guys!~ ^^
