Aghanim’s Labyrinth is tough, but picking the best hero combinations makes things way easier.

The limited hero pool makes Aghanim’s Labyrinth seem like a simple mode, but anyone with The Continuum Conundrum battle pass can tell you that isn’t the case. Elite challenges and boss fights can tear teams apart in a matter of seconds. Heck, there’s a lot of strategy before the game even begins.

Four heroes per team means plenty of opportunities to synergize. If you want to finish your weekly missions and hit the weekly arcane fragments limit, these are the three best hero combos for Aghanim’s Labyrinth.

Snapfire and Tusk combo are the best heroes against Aghanim’s Labyrinth bosses

Like most combos on this list, Snapfire-Tusk requires a certain legendary shard upgrade. Friendly Lil’ Shredder allows the spell to be cast on an allied unit, massively boosting their attack speed. Tusk should look for the option to turn Tag Team into a toggled ability. With both active, Tusk will deal a massive amount of damage in the blink of an eye while shredding armor. The ensuing Walrus Punch should take out almost anything. If you’re playing in a four-stack, don’t be afraid to suicide and re-roll for those specific shards. 

Aside from his overwhelming single-target damage, Tusk can also use Snowball and Ice Shards to dodge boss attacks or redirect waves. Snapfire Cookies are useful for similar reasons. Snapfire should rush Octarine Core to cast Lil’ Shredder on Tusk as often as possible. For bonus points, pick up a Desolator to free up one of Tusk’s item slots. His item build should look something like Mjollnir, Daedalus, and Satanic. Never underestimate the power of Black King Bar with this hero combo, which is locked to seven seconds in Aghanim’s Labyrinth. 

Omniknight and Ursa deal with crowds and single-target

Omniknight doesn’t seem like an ideal hero for Aghanim’s Labyrinth, but he’s one of the best pocket healers for a dedicated damage dealer. With the right upgrades, Ursa’s Fury Swipes quickly racks up damage on individual targets. This makes certain rooms like Legion Commander and Snapfire much easier. The bear’s main problems are a lack of sustain and area-of-effect damage. He has a tough time tanking without Enrage, and groups of small enemies can quickly overwhelm him. Omniknight barely deals any damage, but he’s fairly tanky and can save other heroes from a rough situation.

With an Omniknight in his pocket, Ursa has four get-out-of-jail-free cards. Purification nukes smaller enemies and brings Ursa up to full health instantly with the right shard upgrades. Heavenly Grace purges Ursa in case he gets caught by any stuns. Guardian Angel is perfect for negating all physical damage. Lastly, if the going really gets tough, Omniknight can draw aggro so Ursa doesn’t have to stop hitting. For item builds, Ursa should go all-in on damage with Maelstrom, Skull Basher, and Daedalus. An Omniknight with Aether Lens and Guardian Greaves should be able to keep him alive no matter what.

Snapfire and Lina hero combo shreds Aghanim’s Labyrinth

This hero combo works similarly to Snapfire Tusk but replaces all semblance of utility for possibly the highest damage possible in Aghanim’s Labyrinth. Tusk is limited by the fact that he is melee and needs to build attack speed to actually do real damage. Lina’s massive attack range and Fiery Soul means that she can dodge enemy attacks while laying down the pain. Dragon Slave and Light Strike Array are excellent options for clearing out smaller enemies as well, something Tusk can have trouble with.

Just keep in mind that one of Lina’s legendary shards is currently bugged. The option that grants an extra Fiery Soul stack will actually limit her to just one. Being capped at a low movement speed means certain death in many of the later boss fights, especially the finale against the primal beast.
