Each Hero has a unique passive and two active use abilities. Each individual Hero you hire will have a unique selection of passives and abilities that are available to their class. While there will be a wide selection of passives and abilities available to each class, individual Heroes will only have access to a limited number of them at any single point in time.
In the Early Access launch version of Battlecursed, available Heroes will be restricted to a static set with predetermined ability choices. We will roll out new static Heroes with differing ability combinations in the earliest updates to Early Access. Hero permadeath and the ability to hire new Heroes within the Sleeping Dragon Inn will be implemented as part of the Town system.
Please see the Roadmap on Battlecursed.com for the most up-to-date status of feature implementation in Early Access.
