TPA2 Hero class preferences
« on: March 15, 2010, 04:44:25 PM »

So, given that you have a choice of what class the Hero will be, who do you usually choose?
Myself, I go for a Psy Fighter in vast majority of cases (along with useful Orb intake, making it a versatile, powerul and highly mobile unit), but have experimented with other class types as well and found that the Assassin is pretty good, especially when backed-up by orbs (effectively killing Shadow Guardians on last map in one go with Mega Stab!).

I prefer Psy Fighter. The rest of the classes aren't as expensive in the meat market. Although, my favorite not counting cost would be swordsman, 'cause I can go to the frontlines and deal major damage without dying.

My favourite class would have to be the Psy fighter because the majority of the orbs are geared towards Psy abilties, and I like having my hero stay back and shoot people and heal people at the same time.

In TPA2, psy fighters can't heal.

This would make a great poll.
I like the bowman, because they can attack, while being out of harms way.

Sorry I was thinking about giving them restiance (light mostly) rather than healing them, thats my healer's job :P

Good point, forgot to add it.

I find that the extra perks of using a Swordsman and a Bowman as Heroes don't really pay off: the special stats and the use of orbs seem to enhance the Psy Fighter and the Assassin to a much greater effect.

Unlike the other classes, the Psy Fighter has to train Psy Power.  With the other classes you can train Strenth and allow the orbs to boost the amount of PsP instead of training Psy Power.

True, but then the Psy Fighter only needs one category to invest the gold in: Psy Power. And the orbs will boost PsP anyway. Whilst for other classes you also have to spend gold boosting the Strength stat, along with the Psy Power stat for any of the special attacks (this especially applies to the Stab attacks by the Assassin).

You only have to booste Psy Power to a point, then it will be cheaper to upgrade strength.

That's true as well, but then quite a few of the attacks from other classes will not be boosted by Psy Power, so that gold investment will not be as good, as only some of the attacks will deal more damage.

I guess to each their own.  I like the bowman, because she is easy to keep out of harms way.

Out of interst, as I never used the Bowman as the Hero, do you actually use her in battles much, or do you effectively keep her as far away from the battle as possible?

I like to use her with a spearman or swordman.  The melee unit takes on the soldier, while the bowman picks them off.
