On harder difficulty, the AI usually focuses on Set I find.

This is true, the AI now targets healers, especially on Brutal, but random and off-topic.

I don't usually use Set, but I could still change his roll from "Healer" to "Bait."

Good point. Besides the hero can heal everyone if you find the orb.

Great idea, I was wondering how to use that, and the healing everybody does work, and I really never thought to use set as bait.

Ooops. Sorry for not warning you about it. I moved here the part of the discussion about the AI from it's former place in the Orbs discussion.

Any other things you've noticed about the enemy AI, anything exploitable?
Usually offering someone's back to the enemy used to work if you wanted them not to target some other unit which might be too exposed in battle- this will draw off part of the enemy fire.
Haven't been trying out the higher difficulties lately, but I suspect this still might apply.
