Lords Mobile is multifaceted and so, in order to dominate, you will need to find success throughout all elements of the game. The most important component to work on would be your heroes. Below is our rundown of the best most important heroes in Lords Mobile.
Included in this list is the Hero advantages across all factors of the game. We have included F2P (Free to Play) Heroes and also P2P (Pay to Play) Heroes. If a hero is Free to Play I will automatically give it a percentage boost because it is more accessible.
Here is my List of Best Heroes in their order of greatest:
- Rose Knight
- Prima Donna (and Lore Weaver)
- Bombin’ Goblin
- Big Guy
- Grove Guardian
- Witch Doll
- Black Crow
- Death Knight
Best Colosseum Lineup
Before getting into the overall best heroes to have (and max), first we will show you the best Colosseum lineups. Of course, depending on the constellation and on the opposing lineup, these lineups can vary, but here are my favorite Colosseum F2P heroes.
Top F2P Lineup: Trickster, Rose Night, Death Night, Prima Donna, and Black Crow.
Alternative F2P Lineup: Tracker, Rose Night, Death Night, Prima Donna, and Demon Slayer.
Top P2P Lineup: Rose Night, Lore Weaver, Tracker, and Demon Slayer

Top Hero: Rose Knight (Free to Play)
#1 Top Lords Mobile Hero
Rose Knight is one of the last heroes to be able to be learned, but the overall top hero on our list. She is the most effective for the Colosseum, especially at gold. She and a healer will be a part of almost every Colosseum lineup. Rose Knight is the top F2P colosseum heroes. Period! Her Justice Call skill protects all the other heroes in the team.
Her Timber Boosts isn’t too far above average, but the Colosseum advantage and Army Attack Boost makes her irreplaceable. I would recommend bringing her to gold as soon as possible, or at least to purple before focusing on other heroes.
I would strongly recommend maxing Rose Knight (or maybe trickster) to gold before any other hero.
We rank Rose Night as a 9.3/10. To learn everything that you need to know about Rose Knight, click here.
Trickster (Free to Play)
#2 Top Lords Mobile Hero
The Trickster is one of the most important heroes in Lords Mobile. He has an attack arrow that is pretty much unparalleled within Lords Mobile. His toy-looking arrows carry a real punch. The trickster is one of the most physically powerful heroes in Lords Mobile. His research boost is so good (25% extra) that I would recommend focusing on bringing him to gold as soon as possible.

The reasons why the Trickster is so important: Physical Attacking, Research Boost, Colosseum, Energy Boosts.
We rank the Trickster as 8.5/10.
Songstress of the Sea (Pay to Play)
#3 Top Lords Mobile Hero
I’m not very happy about putting a Paid to Play hero so high up the list, but she’s really good at what she does and compared to her lower price she belongs as number 3. She’s an incredible War Hero. It’s that simple. If you want to dominate KVK, own the fort, and control Bases you will need a hero like Songstress.
Here are her army boosts at gold:
- An overall Army ATK of +25%
- The Army max Health Power of +25%
The Army Defense of +25%
The Songstress may be missing a lot of clothes, but she isn’t missing any skill. She’s is a hero fit for a light-weight rally leader.
She costs approximately $1,275 to buy until gold. Compared to the $11,000 to max some of the other battle P2P heroes she’s basically a bargain. If you want to dominate KVK I would strongly recommend getting the Songstress.
We rank the Songstress of the Sea at 8.5/10
Prima Donna (Free to Play) + Lore Weaver (Pay to Play)
#4 and #5 Top Lords Mobile Hero
Prima Donna is a tricky hero. She looks innocent, but upon further inspection has a lot of weirdness going on. Her skill-sets are pretty much the same. Her boosts primarily assist siege attacks. Yuck. She’s weak. Even her magical attack for monster hunting is usually not as effective as other heroes.
So why is she on this list?
Simple. She heals other heroes, and she is good at it. Prima Donna is perfect for almost all combos. She’s usually the reason that you’ll win or lose a coliseum battle or stage.
Important Note: Lore Weaver is a far better hero and does almost the same thing, but we gave it fewer points on our list because its P2P (read: costs money) and because its healing powers don’t help all the heroes on the battlefield. Otherwise, Lore Weaver is 100x better than Prima Donna. To really understand the difference between these two heroes, click here.
We rank the Prima Donna as a 7.5/10.
We rank Lore Weaver as an 8/10.
Bombin’ Goblin (Free to Play)
#6 Top Lords Mobile Hero
Bombin’ Goblin is quite a useless hero in many respects. He looks like a toy that was played with for far too long. He looks eerie and frightening, and not in a fun way. He is F2P however, and he, like the Rose Night has an amazing army attack. When powered up to gold, the Bombin’ Goblin will give you a 20% Army Attack Boost. That is massive! If you want to go to war (and don’t want to pay a fortune for the P2p heroes) the Bombin’ Goblin is a must.
If you were tempted to use Bombin’ Goblin in the Colosseum, I’ll spare you the trouble, don’t. He’s useless.
We rank Bombin’ Goblin as a 6.5/10.
Big Guy (Pay to Play)
#7 Top Lords Mobile Hero
Big Guy is a tank hero, but with amazing bonuses for beginner players. It’s P2P (Pay to Play) but one of the cheapest heroes to max. In addition to its power in the Colosseum, it also adds gives a 30% construction boost when gold. As a leader in battle, it gives an incredible boost to the infantry.
The Big Guy costs only $275 to max and is the cheapest (and also the most important) P2P hero. An additional element of Big Guy, are the bonuses that come in the package. The packages along the way, are fantastic.
Important Note: Only get Big Guy at the beginning. Once you hit C25, your Big Guy Hero will kinda be a waste. Unless you want to build a strong infantry army.
We rank Big Guy as an 8.2/10 for beginner players.
We only rank him as a 4.5/10 for advanced players, especially those who have already hit Level 60 and/or have other powerful P2p heroes.
The Grove Guardian is incredible in the Colosseum. If you want to hit the top of the Colosseum and stay there, get the Grove Guardian. He’s weird. Sure. But he’s effective.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t come with any administrative skills and isn’t the best range paid hero.
He’s incredible for Colosseum because of his magical defense, but otherwise kinda useless!
Witch doll is another great colosseum hero. She doesn’t need to be maxed out to be effective. Her ultimate-attack is incredible, and her magical attack is incredible. She can lock up all the enemy heroes at the same time, forcing them all to be sitting ducks. When she is on fire, she’ll single-handedly win the battle for you!
My rating is 8.1/10
Tracker has a misunderstood portfolio. Her attack is the strongest single hit and therefore has multiple powerful uses.
She’s great in the Collosuem as a support hero. Most F2P Collosuem teams will always have Tracker, Rose Knight, and Prima Donna. In ATK Monster Hunting and Hero Stages she’s in almost all lineups.
Her Battle Skills are good (but not excellent) if you have a strong presence of ranged units.
Tracker is ranked as an 8/10.
Like the Tracker, Black Crow is a fantastic colosseum attacker. She stands at the back and hits high-might damage across the Colosseum and ATK Monster Hunting. She is a big assist in the challenges. I wouldn’t max her to gold first, but she is a fantastic hero.
The Black Crows Ranged Battle Skills are not as good as trackers.
The Black Crow is ranked at 7/10.
The Death Knight may seem so overly scary that he’s actually comical, but he’s a great hero. His ultimate power throws all the nearby enemies toward the back of the Colosseum. He’s a powerful tank, even rivaling the HP of the Big Guy.
His Cavalry Battle Skills aren’t anything special. There are better heroes when it comes to Battle Skills. The Death Knight shines, however, when it comes to colosseum battle and monster hunting, especially for beginner F2P players. I strongly recommend him until you’re ready to upgrade to the better heroes!
The Death Knight is also ranked as 7/10
The Berzerker, Dream Witch, Storm Fox, and Prince of Thieves are coming soon!
