Archon, the heroes can use them for whatever you want, whether to attack, besiege also serves as defense

It's strange that heroes, offensive units, are stronger in defense...

Greetings archons,

Heroes is best to use to do the campaign missions.Be wise, to max the scrolls on the library so you can get +extra heroes.


Moreover, other uses of them are : Spies(sent them to enemy cities to see when they get attacked, better than loosing a jav! , siege bot cities and use them in your town so enemy assasins can waste their power on them since their def is really great and due to that, you won't have any real looses!

Yes.


Since they're not based on investment, plus the rewards have been hugely reduced (nor more GPs, etc.), they're not worth wasting good units, so we're using the free heroes, with a pinchful of light infantry when we want to go faster. :)


It takes lots of time, though. ^^

I don't find useful for them to sit in sieges or friend cities, if u can build 25 per day, send them to missions, so they do some work,

if u can successfully kill 25 per day with sieges and so on and save jav in process it's viable strategy i guess, but hero has better stats than jav, do more in missions.


scrolls in academy only increase maximum number of heroes u can have at any given time, recruitment maximum per day is 25(with ambrosia vesells)

Indeed.But it helps me due to the fact that I do not send them in banches of 25s..but 50s. I wait 2-3 days to get more because the more they are, the more they kill :)

I tried to send them in various batches from 15 all the way to 50, a nd found that if u send 25 they kill most troops, in offense and in defense as well 

in other words, if I send 2x 25 heroes they kill more than if I send 1x 50 heroes:) can't tell for 60 xD


             killed units: horses, lights, heavy, phalanx

btw 25 breakdown: 6, 22, 11, 7

50 breakdown       : 11,44,22,15


if u multiply 25 by 2 u get 1 extra horse killed, 1 less phalanx, so slight profit :)

YOur heroes might be dopped :) I will do the calculations again and see if I get few more units off easily.

I pet my heroes before battle so they perform better  :)


also they work really well in team of 25 :)


that's because they have to watch movie 300, before they go to sleep, they just believe 25 is better version of 300

I never thought of sending 25 at a time. I'm going to have invest in more ambrosia.

I use mine for raiding close (less than 2.5 miles) targets, because they have a decent carrying capacity. Not really fast, so I don't mix them with cavalry for longer raids, but for close raids they're useful.

I also use them for defense; not always but sometimes, because they are probably the best 2-way players on the team. And they are very replaceable

But I love to use them against Persian Positions. I quickly run out of light troops attacking PPs, so stiffening an attack with a bunch of expendables is a very attractive option.

make sure you use them vs missions(ones with crossed swords and guaranteed rewards) not regular positions.

I send 25 Hero's a day with 200 Javs to the fixed defensive persian prize.  Slow and steady but no real loss to me.
