Cleaver - Hero Wars Alliance

Cleaver hero guide, glyphs, artifacts, skins, best teams, and best counters in Hero Wars Alliance.
Cleaver is a tank hero of the Way of Chaos faction. He is available only via the Heroic Chest, so obtaining him can take a lot of time.
One of his advantages is that he is the tank with the highest health in the game and can pull heroes from the back line to the front line. He is considered a meta combo with Peppy due to her Boldness skill.
If you are patient enough to open 400 heroic chests and unlock Cleaver, he'll arrive with an absolute star.
Pros
  • The tank with the highest strength in the game
  • Pulls enemies from the back line to the front line, making them vulnerable to front-line hits
  • Deals pure damage
  • Stun ability
Cons
  • Hard to obtain; you can get him only from the Heroic Chest
  • Truly useful if you max out all of his stats
Can you smell decomposition? Can you hear the dying screams of those who suffer? Then meet Cleaver, butcher extraordinaire and master of carcass dressing! Or better, run for your life before you meet him!

How to counter Cleaver in Hero Wars Alliance?

Dorian
Dorian
Dorian increases the vampirism of nearby allies. Once pulled at the front line by Cleaver's Rusty Hook, he can increase the vampirism of the front-line heroes, making them even harder to defeat.
Andvari
Andvari
Andvari's Living Earth skill protects his allies from displacement and knock-up effects blocking Cleaver's ability to pull back-line heroes to the front line.
Peppy
Peppy
Aurora
Aurora
Peppy casts a shield over Aurora that deals damage to nearby allies. On the other site, Aurora's Rainbow Halo skill absorbs part of the magic damage she takes and explodes at the end, damaging nearby enemies with the absorbed damage that can eliminate Cleaver almost immediately.
Lian
Lian
Lian can block Cleaver's Rusty Hook whenever he tries to pull Lian to the front line. Cleaver will also be charmed, slowing down his other skill activation.
Martha
Martha
Martha can also be considered Cleaver's counter due to her status as a "tank" healer. If she's pulled to the front line by Cleaver's Rusty Hook, she can resist front-line damage and prolong her team's life.
Jorgen
Jorgen

Jorgen can use his first skill and target the front line, where Cleaver is positioned, and block Cleaver's energy gains for 9.0 seconds.
