If you have just started playing Lords Mobile or are on the midway to glory, you have a lot of resources coming your way. The decision about what heroes to upgrade first becomes utmost crucial at this point as there are many heroes in Lords Mobile with distinct abilities that can help you advance faster in so many ways. Here is a list of our all-time favorite and the best Lords Mobile heroes with a strong focus on multi-tasking, whom you should upgrade first before others. It means these heroes come without spending any real money and are good for Colosseum, Monster attacks, Quests and they also have abilities to boost your progress in the game.
The golden rule to any super Lords mobile hero squad is, that it must have the following roles:
- 1 Tank (to keep the leader busy and take most of the damage),
- 1 Support (to eliminate the side attackers and support the tank),
- 2 Crowd Control (to control the opponent’s magic and special abilities, basically those who can stun or freeze),
- 1 Healer (to keep it going for you),
- 1 Focus Attack (one that can attack from behind and deal a chunk),
- 1 Sniper (to take out the fuse on the opponent side)
While a team only enjoys a max of 5 champions, so you need to have heroes that can take on multiple roles. Keeping the above as a basic rule, here are our top 10 recommendations of the champions you must upgrade in Lords Mobile before any other Free to Play heroes.
