the question of which hero to use comes up at the start. which one do people generally like to pick? that advantages do they get over the normal units? the swordman looked just like a standard swordman, useful for the initial rush but i was uncertain of his future applicability beyond the first turns when i can build swordmen shortly. I restarted and got Epona for the healing and later sorceress ability, it means i miss a lot of strength though get the healing. to my supprise the medic promotion became available to normal melee units. if FFH2 you need disciples, thus my medic advantage wasnt that profound as a warrior with medic could have done the job. what promotions do people normally give to their heros? how do you get additional heros? magistar said you get one after Caerbulin dies.
