So, wonderful stories aside, it seems as though the real reason behind changing her aspect was to make it so there was more of a choice when it came to the top mage tower buff.
This change makes sense on its face, but also seems very short-sighted with regard to the state of the rest of the heroes. What do I mean by that?
Well, here are the let’s call them “good” or “useable” heroes by aspect:
- Grizzled Hunter - good!
You could maaaaaaaybe argue for Punk … but you never see Punk used in War on A teams and you never see him in Arena. So I’m saying no.
You could maaaaaaaybe argue for Highwayman based solely on the fact that he buffs Fury, but you never see him in wars or on Arena teams. So I’m saying no.
Some might argue against Void, but I think he belongs as a useful hero.
So where does that leave us? There are 4 Finesse, 3 Focus and … 1 Fury backliners? This leads to a serious imbalance in the aspect triangle.
Especially since that one Fury backliner is very susceptible to being eaten alive by Night’s blue. 1-shots galore! On top of that, Ginger and Hermit are both useful (buffing Finesse and Focus), but Highwayman is not very good. Which is just one more disadvantage for Fury.
