Post news RSS Rohan 3.0

I've made some changes to Rohan's heroes to better streamline things.This is pretty much the third hero change since LWR started.Work is already under way on these changes and most have already been coded in.

Posted by on

Dunhere will no longer be buildable via the Eastfold spell unlock instead he's getting moved but more on that later.Theodred is also being killed once more and will no longer be a regular hero he'll stay in the code maybe for maps.
This removes one hero each from the Westfold and Eastfold spells.

I also updated some of the hero roles and purposes.
Helm - Early hero summon/creep hunterEowyn - Early hero,creep/monster hunterHama - Early game melee heroGamling - Early game, ranged heroGrimbold - Tank/supportElfhelm - UndecidedEomer - Mid game supportErkenbrand - SupportTheoden - Late game support.

Hama, Gamling, Elfhelm and Grimbold no longer start with mount instead gaining it at level 4.Eomer, Theoden, Erkenbrand, Hama, Gamling, Elfhelm and Grimbold will all get new skills.
