Heroes of Newerth – Hero Guide - Andromeda


The star-born celestial known as Andromeda is a stranger to Newerth. With no memory of her home or her people, she is driven merely by an innate sense that the Hellbourne are vile and the mortal inhabitants of Newerth innocent. Her powerful dimensional magic allows her to bring destruction to the daemons or strength to her new-found allies.


Andromeda rips a comet from her dimension to hurl at an enemy, damaging and stunning them.


Andromeda shakes the magnetic field of Newerth, causing an Aurora to erupt, damage, and reduce the armor of all enemies in front of her.


Andromeda's link to her home dimension bestows power to nearby allies, allowing them to do more damage with attacks.


Andromeda pauses time and space, instantly switching places with another hero.

  1. I would personaly chose comet/stats or comet/dimensional link, because you need dmg fast. Also i would not get portal key, it is a waste of money. get DMG, lots of it, stun, and life. I would go for sange and yasha. wards not really essential late game, early game it would be a waste of money ... it depends on allies. if you have a good scout, you do sort of a map hack with him. put wards everywhere. But that kind of scouts are rare.
