The meta in Dota Underlords is likely to shift regularly, so we're keeping things simple. This guide will always show the best build for easy wins. It's pretty inevitable, based on the funtionality of the game and its balance, that one composition will always rise to the top. What I must stress is:

  • The nature of Dota Underlords will always see a wide variety of compositions as completely viable.
  • This build still has some counters (minimal) but is still - undoubtedly - the strongest.
  • Any build in Dota Underlords still requires a little bit of luck, whether it be items available or your re-rolls for units in the shop.


  • Shadow Shaman
  • Omni Knight
  • Witch Doctor
  • Chaos Knight
  • Batrider
  • Troll Warlord
  • Abaddon
  • Luna
  • Dragon Knight


There's a few variables with the above build, but it's limited. The key is to retain your 6 Knight bonus, while securing the massive Troll Alliance output. If you are seeking changes, you can undertake the following:

  • Swap Shadow Shaman and Witch Doctor for Puck and Viper to vastly improve your Dragon Knight and to gain some back-line pressure. Just note that you will lose a great deal of attack speed.


There's only one real weakness to this Dota Underlords builds, and it's Assassins. They'll split your composition quickly and see your bonuses significantly reduced because of it. That said, as long as you cluster into a corner and protect your Trolls, you'll still come out on top.
