I’ve suggested before that Hearthlings should gain further stat progression at Lvl. 6 Combat classes, but today I realised how laughably outclassed my Hearthlings are individually compared to most enemies.
My strongest Hearthling has 300+ HP, whereas a Kobold Archer has 1250 HP… and don’t even get me started on Ogres and their 2000 HP which is four times higher than what my Knight can achieve.
I understand that the devs reduced the number of starting Hearthlings down to 5 to make us see them as individuals, but how on Stonehearth am I supposed to see them as individuals if the only possible combat tactic is them zerging enemies in a horde where individual skill and prowess doesn’t matter?!
There’s a slight issue when I see my enemies as individuals more than I see my Hearthlings as individuals.
While I think the Kobold General is a really swell boss enemy, I’d also like to look at my individual Hearthlings that way and be able to boast about how epic they are on a personal level.
