Dota Underlords Alliances Cheat Sheet – All Class Bonuses

I’ll give Valve credit. In Dota Underlords there are heroes, alliances, and items. That’s it. While it’s not much, that’s one less complicating factor then Teamfight Tactics which splits alliances into origins and classes. But we’re not here today to talk about that. You’re probably in the middle of a match right now and trying to remember what alliances offer which bonuses. This Dota Underlords Alliances cheat sheet will help you figure out the best Alliances for every situation.

  1. You are listing heartless alliance as having 5 heroes, but the max bonus is for 6 heartless. Huh?! What’s that about?!

    1. There is a random in-game item, Fall From Grace, which makes any Human unit count as Heartless instead. It is currently the only way to get a full squad of six Heartless on the field at one time.
