If Oin is the spirit hero, which he seems obligated to be unless they somehow fit an ally version of him in, what ability do you think he'll have? And what stats? There isn't much information on Oin, so I wonder what they made him like… I really wanted at least one Tactics hero that was in the company, to make it a more thematic experience, but I guess those spots had to be taken by Bard and Beorn. It would be really nice to have a Spirit hero that can defend, because I don't like using Frodo, because then I feel like I have to pair him with Loragorn, even if I didn't want a Spirit/Lore deck.
A defender spirit hero would be a nice addition…I also hope that Oin's power doesnt center around other dwarves. He have enough of that already.
It wouldnt have to necessarily be Oin, but it would fit in Spirit's theme to have a hero that has like a 3 defense then a power of:
response: after "character's name" defends an attack, lower your threat by the difference between "character's name" defense and the attacking enemy's attack
I have no problem getting neither a Thranduil nor Gwaihir "Hero". Gwaihir works as an Ally or objective Ally (the latter makes most sense to me). I was never convinced (I don't think) that Thranduil would be a player card. If it is, I'm not surprised to see it as an Ally (objective Ally seems less likely) since The Hobbit is such a Hobbit- and Dwarf-focused book.
