Hero class: Melee tank.
A very useful melee tank: strong on himself and provides a great support to the allied units nearby.
Use cases: He isnt the toughest tank in the game, but a very useful one. Apart from being rather tough by himself, he provides a great support to nearby tanky melee units: he increases their defense and can take damage that is intended to be done to the units (and he takes less damage than these units due to higher defense, that reduces the taken damage much more). That’s very effective vs strong AOE spells.
Equipment: the tanky set.
Synergies: Gulbert has a perfect synergy with Norn in longering the troops lives. Dwoggour is a must hero to support Norn, since each time after the spell activation Norn looses a viable amount of HP.Units: Tanky melee squad. Most likely, human shielders either with high physical or magical defense.
