Octavia - Hero Wars Alliance

Octavia hero guide, glyphs, artifacts, skins, best teams, and best counters in Hero Wars Alliance.
Octavia is a support hero of the Way of Eternity faction in Hero Wars Alliance. Her focus is on providing dodge to the whole team. Octavia can also give her allies a chance to dodge magical damage.
Octavia is also considered adaptable to a wide range of team compositions being a great counter to a huge range of meta teams. She pairs well with K'arkh and Dante, increasing their armor penetration, and also providing dodge, which gives these heroes the ability to serve even as a tank at the front line.
Octavia is a good counter to heroes that target the back line because they will most probably bypass her due to her 4th skill. You should consider that she's not invincible and she might be targeted by AoE damage heroes.
Pros
  • Reflects the damage of all dodges
  • Adds dodge to the whole team
  • Increases the armor penetration based on the dodge
  • Cannot be attacked until the whole team's heroes are dead
Cons
  • Affected by Satori's Fox Fire marks even if her allies are alive
  • Vulnerable to pure damage and AoE damage
The once-beloved Empress of the Dominion fell victim to Morth Chrone. Every day, his necrotic poison eats away Octavia's sanity. The rule's graceful features changes as her humanity melts away, little by little. Afraid of being abandoned, alone Octavia punishes the slightest hint of disobedience with ruthless severity.

Best Octavia Teams

As part of the Way of Eternity faction, Octavia is strong with ally heroes from its faction. She also pairs great with Dante who has dodge abilities.
Octavia is not only strong with Way of Eternity heroes but is a great addition to heroes with dodge stat like Aurora, Ishmael, Heidi, Yasmine, and Elmir.
With the introduction of the second Heidi talisman increasing its dodge stat, their synergy became even stronger.

Best Octavia Hydra Teams

Octavia is rarely used in Hydra battles and there is no meta team with this hero so far that can counter any Hydra.

How to counter Octavia in Hero Wars Alliance?

Satori
Satori
Satori's Fox Fire marks can target Octavia before her allies are dead.
Heidi

Pure damage heroes like Heidi and Maya are great counters against Octavia, especially in combination with Nebula or Dante.

Octavia can also be countered by AoE heroes who are not targeting the hero directly. Such heroes include Keira, Kayla, Lars, Ginger, Luther, and even Galahad with his AoE + pure damage.

Aidan

Faceless

Xe'Sha
Xe'Sha
Jorgen

Astaroth
Astaroth
This team is often used against Octavia teams. The goal is to skip doing constant damage and rely on Xe'Sha's single hits to kill the enemy hero. Aidan will protect Xe'Sha while Jorgen blocks energy gains. Astaroth will provide resurrection and burn enemy heroes' energy.
