Heroes Of The Storm Character Tier List | HotS Tier List [October] 2022

This article presents to you an updated HotS tier list, read further down to know who are the best heroes to pick during October in the Heroes of the Storm.

What is Heroes Of The Storm?

Heroes of The Storm is a crossover MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) video game that was developed by Blizzard Entertainment. Released in June 2015, the game features a total of 90 heroes/ characters. The 5 Universes from which the players can choose a hero include the universe of – Warcraft, StarCraft, Overwatch, Diablo, and Nexus. Players can play by choosing any one hero from a long list of heroes. Unlike Blizzard’s Overwatch, you have to unlock or buy the characters in the game to play them.

In Heroes of the Storm, all the characters have been divided into five categories –

  • Tank – These characters/ heroes have high HP and because of that they form the frontline of any team to soak up a great amount of damage
  • Bruiser – These heroes deal a great amount of damage and also have high HP, but they are not as durable as the tanks
  • Support – These heroes have their own unique set of abilities and provide utilities in the fights against the enemy teams. As the name suggests, they are supporters who assist the main damage dealer in the fights
  • Healer – These characters’ main function is to heal and support their team members. These characters have fewer hit points, so they must be used cautiously
  • Ranged Assassin – These are the heroes who need to get close to the enemy to deal a significant amount of damage. They rely on attacking suddenly and swiftly.
  • Melee Assassin – These high-damage dealers attack their enemies from a safer distance, but they are fragile.

Players in Heroes of the Storm team up to form a team of 5 and then they fight in a 5v5 battle. The first team to destroy the enemy team’s core structure, known as the “King’s Core” is crowned victorious. A match typically lasts for about 20 minutes.

It has been 7 years since the game was released. In June, it marked its 7th anniversary. According to the latest reports Blizzard Entertainment has stopped the major development of the game and has entered it into maintenance mode. Blizzard will now only focus on its rotations (the list of 14 heroes that are free to play in any game mode change every week, this is known as rotation) and bug patches.

Heroes Of The Storm Character Tier List

In Heroes of the Storm, not all heroes are made equally powerful, some heroes are overpowered and others underpowered, and if you are a beginner, then it becomes crucial for you to know which heroes to pick and which ones to avoid, at least at the start of the game.

HotS Tier List
Imperius – HotS

The HotS tier list that we are going to provide is not general or definite, it changes with each season’s meta. The meta of the game is ever-changing and with that players need to change their hero priorities. If you’re a beginner, then this Tier-list will prove to be extremely important and useful for you. With that being said, let us begin with our list of HotS Tier List.

We have divided our characters into 5 Tiers, with S-Tier being the most powerful and D-Tier being the weakest, well technically not the weakest but we would say that it needs a very skilled player to excel with the heroes of D-Tier. Now without wasting any time let us directly cut to the chase.

Tank
E.T.C., Diablo, and Johanna

Bruiser
Dehaka

Support

Healer
Rehgar

Ranged
Assassin
Mephisto

Melee
Assassin
NIL
Tier-S Heroes

The heroes in this tier are undoubtedly the best in the game, they are those characters that every team wants. These heroes are worthy of turning the tide of the battle on their own, which makes them the favorites of any player.

E.T.C, Johanna, and Diablo are perfect as tanks due to their high survivability. These heroes have the highest survivability in the game, and not just that, but they also have high utility and medium complexity. That makes them a perfect pick for any team.

Without Rehgar any team in HotS is incomplete, he works best with either Diablo or E.T.C.

With Dehaka as the only Bruiser in the S-Tier, he has earned this place. His survivability, utility, and damage-dealing capabilities are great and that makes Dehaka a perfect pick.

Mephisto has comprehensive capabilities, provides good utility to the team, and deals serious damage. He will consume your soul before you could make a strategy to take him out.

Tier-A

Tier-A Heroes

In Tier-A of the HotS tier list, we have included 4 tanks, 6 bruisers, 1 support, 3 healers, 12 ranged assassins, and 2 melee assassins. These are the heroes who would be among the first picks for the players.

These players provide high utility and have medium to high damage and survivability which place them in our Tier-A of HotS tier list.

Note that the list includes 12 ranged assassins which is the highest number of heroes in any tier and any category. This means that you can pick and experiment with any of these ranged assassins since they are highly reliable.

Tier-B

TIer-B Heroes

The Tier-B of our HotS tier list includes slightly less powerful heroes as compared to Tier-S and Tier-A. But this certainly does not mean that they should not be picked in the battles. These are the average heroes and you will not be really happy or really sad if you select any one of these.

These heroes provide the right balance to the team and their presence doesn’t make a team overpowered or underpowered.

Tier-C

Heroes of the Storm Tier List

Tank
Arthas and Mei

Bruiser
Gazlowe and Malthael

Support
The Lost Vikings

Healer
Tyrande, Auriel, Kharazim, Uther, Whitemane, Alextrasza, Ana, and Lt. Morales

Ranged
Assassin
Genji, Probius, Nova, Gul’dan, Greymane, Lunara, Kael’thas, Zagara, Tychus, and Nazeebo

Melee
Assassin
Samuro
Tier-C Heroes

The heroes in Tier-C of the HotS tier list are the mediocre heroes and these are those who need a skilled player to be able to make an impact in the battle. We don’t recommend you to start with these heroes as they require experience and skills if you want to win battles consistently using them.

Most of the healers in the game have been included in this tier because their counterparts are not only good at healing but also provide other utilities to the team as well because of which they have been ranked above.

Tier-D

Heroes of the Storm Tier List

Tank
Tyrael

Bruiser
Imperius

Support
NIL

Healer
Li Li

Ranged
Assassin
Orphea, Chromie, Li-Ming, and Kel’Thuzad

Melee
Assassin
Maiev, Murky, and Butcher
Tier-D Heroes

Tier-D is the last tier in our HotS tier list. These heroes are somewhat less powerful as compared to their counterparts. You don’t want to play with them if you’re a beginner who has just started to play the game. The heroes in this list are really hard to master, so it would be better for you to get a hang of other characters and the game, in general, to be able to start making contributions to the team’s victories.

With this, we end our tier list of heroes. We hope that by reading this article you were able to gain some insights. The meta of the game is ever-changing and no tier list of one season can be trusted for the other season, for this reason, we will be updating our HotS tier list, so stay with us. Till then you can read our other articles.
