Some people have had a hard time fighting Helos. He was hard, and would counter any ward, sword or charm. I used henchmen and won the first time out. I used the 100 crown life henchman & the 400 crown Ice henchman. This worked out good because the ice henchman took most of the hits & the life henchman kept us alive. Because this worked for me, I thought I'ld pass this along.
