I'm not trying to make any sort of point here, this is just for fun. But what if newer heroes were like older heroes? What if Solaris, Marrow, Hopper, Shade and some others were actually the first heroes to come out?
- Shock Immune
- Shocking Grasp (Shock on Crits)
- Monster Scout I and II
- Bite: Basic attack
- Lure: Would deal damage and Shock the target, nothing else. Cooldown of 6 turns.
- Light Nova: Would deal extremely low damage with a chance to Shock all enemies, nothing else. Cooldown of 7 turns.
- Invigorate: Would give an ally 3 energy, nothing else. Cooldown of 7 turns.
- Mythical Beast: Would give all Beast allies 20% Hp and 15% Atk.
- From The Ashes I and II: Would revive after 3 turns, but only once per dungeon. Wouldn't revive Beast allies.
- Pinion Blast: Basic attack
- Fire Bird: Would deal damage to one target with a chance to Burn, and heal all allies. Cooldown of 6 turns.

- Soul Devour: Steal 1 buff from an enemy, dealing low damage. Cooldown of 6 turns.
- Impervious instead of Construct
- Could be healed normally, I guess? Which would sort of be a buff?
- Legacy of Flame: 15% bonus HP and DEF to Fire allies.
- Feel the Burn: Basic attack, hits 1 enemy only, very low chance to Burn.
- Under Pressure: Would be a regular ability. Deal decent damage to one target. Cooldown of 3.

- Combustion: Deals damage, lowers target's energy by 2. Cooldown of 7.
- Wand: Basic attack
- Haunted Past: Deal very low damage to a target, apply Haunted to just them. Cooldown of 6.
- Spirit Link: Would probably be an attack instead. Would just deal Spirit damage to a target, maybe steal 1 buff or something. Cooldown of 5.
- Possession: Wouldn't exist at all. Would be a totally different ability. No idea what. Probably just a weak AoE Magic attack or something.
- Two Heads Are Better Than One

Pre-Hansuke, the heroes get more and more... fair? I guess? Less complicated might be a better term.
What do you think? Any heroes that you want added to the list? Do they seem balanced and lousy enough, like older heroes? Or did I do too much?
