Try Mode is a custom game whereby players can select and try any hero in a mock game. This is typically done to test abilities and/or when considering a hero purchase.

During this mode, players have access to a variety of options including the ability to select talents at will, to instantly complete quest talents, and to select any ally they choose to assist them. They can also opt to go it alone.
