Heroes are the characters which are controlled by the player. They are divided into three types based on their primary attribute: Strength, Agility and Intelligence. They are also divided by which side they are (Sentinel or Scourge), which only matter in the default game mode (which is very rarely played) and their backstory, as Scourge heroes tend to have much more malicious backgrounds.

Each hero is chosen in a specific tavern. The taverns are arranged depending on the hero's primary attribute and allegiance. Here is a list of heroes in the game organised depending on their Taverns.
