In addition to having a type and class, all heroes available in-game have a primary role. Roles that a hero receives are dependent on their skill set and attributes. Heroes roles aren't necessary dependent of hero type (e.g. Intelligence heroes can be tanks like Shemira). Currently, there are 9 roles.

Heroes below Mythic tier lack a class and instead have both primary and secondary roles. There are 22 heroes under mythic tier.
