We love heroes. These super-henchmen allow you to solo non-AI-able missions, easily vanquish Hard Mode with a friend, and run a team farm build by yourself.
But the sheer number of available heroes can be daunting, and makes keeping track of equips difficult. Is Margrid wielding an icy or poisonous bow? Does Zenmai need the minor shadow rune or should I give it to Anton? This fire staff I just found has a cool skin and good mods, but aren’t my fire eles already using good staves? It may be manageable if you’re the type to play one character exclusively; keeping track of your heroes across multiple characters is a different story entirely.
Data packrats and listmakers — I feel your pain. That’s why I’m sharing my awful secret with you. I use text files to keep track of all kinds of things, from what mission my paragon last finished in each campaign, to which mini-pets my necro has in the Hall of Monuments. Crazy, yes. Helpful, indeed! With eleven playable characters and frequent hiatuses, I find it necessary.
So here’s one of the lists I finally decided to make after months of inventory agony. Every available hero is listed in the order in which they appear in your “Add a Hero” drop-down menu. Copy + paste it to start your own list fun!
