I can only speak for myself but I enjoy hero for what it is, a hybrid class. I love being able to use my preferred range style class with TMG and being able to wipe out a melee weapon when enemies get in closer or I just feel like charging in. I love being able to use techniques while doing all this.
Ironically the way talis works with hero makes me feel like I’m a ninja, ninjutsu including because of techniques. Throwing out items like daggers is how I actually thought Talis weapons were gonna be like for force.
I’m not interested in being the best or using the class the most efficiently. There are no damage meters to chase here. Long as I’m not dying pointless deaths and doing respectable damage I’m happy.
I can’t speak for everyone but I’ve rarely used hero time for mob enemies. Feels like a waste. For me the only time it’s worth using is when I reach the boss at the end or have one drop in mid mission. Hero time for me giving bosses the middle finger as build up for the finisher and say “bye bye”
