Orion - Hero Wars Alliance

Orion hero guide, glyphs, artifacts, skins, best teams, and best counters in Hero Wars Alliance.
Orion is a mage hero part of the Way of Progress faction in Hero Wars Alliance. He is well-known for his huge AoE damage that increases over time during a battle. The more attacks he performs, the more energy he gains, creating a loop of AoE damage attacks and energy gains both in the front and back lines.
Orion is considered a great pick in teams with Dorian and Helios. Dorian can provide Orion vampirism, which will heal Orion with each attack while Helios can provide armor for the whole team making Orion last even longer in the game.
Pros
  • Provides magic penetration to the whole team
  • Fast energy gains and great AoE damage
  • Easy to upgrade to an absolute star
Cons
  • Needs to be combined with other heroes like Dorian and Helios to survive long enough to show its potential
He is the real mystery of the world of the Dominion. Nobody knows which galaxy he came from or what he is doing in these lands. Some people see him as great danger, a messenger from hell, others praise him as their saviour. But what are the true motives of this great warrior from a distant planet?

How to counter Orion in Hero Wars Alliance?

Satori
Satori

Satori will apply Fox Fire marks each time Orion gains extra energy with his "Full Charge" skill. Once activated, Satori's marks can destroy Orion.

Rufus
Rufus

Rufus absorbs all magical damage with his 1st skill, Rakashi's Barrier, to block Orion's front-line damage.

Cornelius
Cornelius

Cornelius attacks the heroes with the highest intelligence with his 1st skill (Heavy Wisdom). If leveled up properly, it can kill Orion with one hit.

Lian
Lian

Lian can charm Orion whenever he deals AoE damage to the team, including her. This will slow him down to perform its AoE damage.

Corvus
Corvus

Corvus' Altar of Souls will strike back at Orion whenever he deals damage to enemy heroes. Considering Orion's AoE damage, the alter will counter him if there is not a proper healer in his team.

Jorgen
Jorgen

Jorgen can steal Orion's energy and also prevent him from gaining energy. Considering Orion's strengths are around energy gains and speed, Jorgen can be serious trouble for him.
