Alternate Heroes are cosmetics designed to replace the default Hero portrait of the class. These alternate skins do not affect the gameplay, but merely add visual diversity to the game. All of them, apart from the 1000-win alternate portrait of the default hero, come with a unique set of emotes, and plenty of them also have their own thematic card backs. In this guide, we'll explain how to obtain Paladin's alternate Heroes which can be used to replace the default Hero, Uther Lightbringer.
For Paladin, twelve alternate Hero skins exist:
- Ascended Uther
- Guan Yu Uther
- Horseman Uther
- Judgment Uther
