I don't get how Mercenaries/heroes are great at all.....

Recommended Posts

the hype for mercenaries has less to do with the class and more to do with the fact that the actual mercenary units in earlier games (raven, gerik, ozma, arguably holyn, definitely galzus) are ridiculous

Playable mercenaries tend to be disgustingly good. Just look at how many SLATESABRE GANKS Integrity managed in his literary studies LP. Even the worst ones (Oujay/Ogier/whatever he's been localised as?) are mediocre.

Can't attest to 13/14 but mercs have had a reputation as amazing since I joined the forum like, six years ago.

Importantly, of course, they also tend to be glamourous with really stupidly OTT animations in the GBA version/literally being the lord in 9/10. So the natural FE fan inclination to sword-bias helps their reputation out for sure.

Heroes aren't that bad in Awakening; it's just that magic classes are overpowered in that game. Players often prefer Sages, Sorcerers, Dark Fliers, and Dark Knights for all those endgame/postgame strats. Speedrunning sees frequent use of the latter 2 classes. A certain Sorcerer can potentially reach 100% listed Crit rate even in Apotheosis and Sages are frequently seen running the infamous Vantage + Vengance combo.
