Hero Line Wars Starlight – Hero Build Guides

Hero Line Wars Starlight Basics

Hero Line Wars Starlight is a custom Arcade Star Craft 2 Map from Tya that pits two teams against each other.

Teams of 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, or 4v4 choose heroes and send units towards their enemies base, all while defending their own.

Heroes level up and can learn/upgrade abilities, and buy items to hold off the waves of enemy units.

Basic Instructions

  • Pick a hero.
  • Spawn units at your Mercenary Camp (hatchery).
  • Survive units spawned by the enemy team.

How To Win

  • Don’t let enemies reach your beacon.

Advanced Instructions

  • Spawning units increases your income so spawn frequently.
    • Right-click the a unit to auto-send when gold is available.
  • Cheaper units give more income per cost, but also more experience.
  • Make use of potions to survive early.
  • Use your shrine to help if you get overwhelmed.


Buy ability upgrades at merchant locations.

Basic Hero Guides

We’re working on fully fleshed out pages for each hero, you can already see their ability names and make some choices based on stats. However if you’re anything like me you haven’t found a ton of information.

It can be frustrating for new players, so we’ve got some basic build guides to get started. These are by no means definitive, but they can be a good place to begin.

Ranged attack builds

  1. Hi, Casual noob here.

    First I want to thank you for putting so much time into this. Most noobs stay noobs because they dont have anything to learn from.

    Now for some fixes:

    1) It is called a Mercenary camp not a hatchery
    2) The attack damage section does not have 6 items, you are missing the kang and vampiric potions
    3) The spell caster section does not have 6 items, you are missing kirin’tor, swiftness potions, and Argus
    4) The summoner section does not have 6 items, you are missing dalaran, another apostle, and swiftness potions
    5) You mention garrison but dont say that he has the same “status” as spectre

    Anyway keep up the good work!

    • Great feedback,

      1) Updated
      2) Updated
      3) Will update when I can get in the game and read the full upgrade path for the Kirin’tor
      4) Same with Dalaran Tome
      5) Good point, Garrison and Spectre have (–) for health, Gary has a bunch of stuff in the table already… so I will look to rethink the layout a bit.

      Thank you very much,
