Usage

  • Hero AI mode:
    • Set backline heroes to guard Guard.png
    • Set midline heroes to fight Fight.png
  • Before starting a particularly difficult fight, you can force the communing prot to use ShelterUnionDisplacementArmor of Unfeeling so your team is fully protected right away.
    • If you're afraid of area damage, you can also flag the heroes apart. It is recommended to place them in a single line, so heroes won't push forward to get into casting range of foes and thus ball with the heroes in front of them again.
    • Natively only the first three heroes can be commanded individually. For the remaining heroes you need to set up custom hotkeys in the controls option for Action: Command Hero #.
