Yeah, I see that. I don’t want to see a Drifting Sands Elemental Hero. The amount of synergy those 8 Elementals have together is near 0.
The 3 Amigos
2 Split Damage troops
A very random “buffer”
At least the 4 Elementals from Glacial Peaks have a common theme.
The 4 Monsters from Drifting Sands have a better common theme than the 8 Elementals.
I almost wish I didn’t say Monsters, because now I had to look it up. Monsters is a secondary type at best in almost every kingdom possible. Shoehorning the most common type of troop as the hero class means the hero can never be a Monster sub-type.
Blackhawk has 5 Monsters, 8 Rogues
Drifting Sands has 4 Monsters, 8 Elementals
Karakoth has 4 Monsters, 7 Daemons
Khetar has 4 Monsters, 11 Undead
Mist of Scales has 4 Monsters, 10 Naga
Darkstone has 6 Monsters, 8 Humans. 4 of the 6 Monsters are from the All Seeing Eye faction which is not how Whitehelm/Hall of Guardians and Crypt Keepers/Sword Edge hero classes are designed from.
I would gladly give Drifting Sands the Monster hero class.
