Phobos is a control hero part of the Way of Eternity faction in Hero Wars Alliance. He is well known for his stunning ability and his energy stealing of the highest magic attack hero (usually the damage dealer in the mage teams). Phobos is considered an end-game hero because he targets the strongest mages.
Pros
  • Targeting the hero with the highest magic attack in the team (the damage dealer in mage teams)
  • Skins tones available in the early game (3-1 quest)
  • Control skills - stun for 6.6 seconds
  • Energy stealing
Cons
  • Phobos cannot attack while his first skill is active (6.6 seconds)
  • Vulnerable to physical attack teams
  • Low health
Sooner or later the mind of every living creature succumbs to the cloying grip of fear. You cannot run, you cannot hide. Fear lives deep within us all. Phobos knows this, and awaits his time. If you fear death, you will die!

How to counter Phobos in Hero Wars Alliance?

Phobos targets the hero with the highest magic attack. If you want to counter him, you can switch to a physical attack team where your main damage dealer has a low magic attack.
Corvus
Corvus

Corvus' altar will reflect Phobo's damage, killing him slowly each time he makes an attack.

Satori
Satori

Satori will apply Fox Fire marks each time Phobos gains extra energy with his "Bonds of Darkness" skill. Once activated, Satori's marks can destroy Phobos.

K'arkh
K'arkh
K'arkh targets three enemies with the lowest health in the enemy team. Considering Phobos's low health, the chance of being hit is very high, which makes it vulnerable to K'arkh.
Jorgen
Jorgen

Jorgen can steal Phobos' energy and also prevent him from gaining it.

Rufus
Rufus

Rufus can absorb huge amounts of magical damage and counter Phobos as a magic attack hero.

Cleaver
Cleaver

Cleaver can pull Phobos to the front line with his Rusky Hook making Phobos extremely vulnerabledue to his low health.

Jhu
Jhu

Jhu can attack ranged enemies, including the backline, where Phobos is positioned.
