Use the mod already. Seriously.

But vanilla has a veritable pile of nations with fewer than 3 heroes. CBM's Worthy Heroes component adds quite a few heroes, and makes this number less. I would say the average nation in vanilla has fewer than 3 heroes.

The monkey nations have the fewest heroes. Some heroes are shared across nations and I'm not sure if they can appear for all shared nations simultaneously (e.g. Devasura the Fallen is for both Lanka and Kailasa).

The maximum number of heroes was raised to 6 with the introduction of Hinnom to fit everything.

Wait, it's been raised to 6, not 3?

YES!

It was never 3.

I thought EA Oceania actually had 0 heroes (in vanilla).

What lovely confusion. Time to bug Kristoffer with this methinks.

What confusion? You've had a straight answer. Just because people don't have an excel spreadsheet of all the heroes mapped to nations readily to hand doesn't mean they don't know.

I don't know.

And I'll bet no one knows, unless they have some kind of document with all the heroes mapped to nations.
I'd love to see such a document. I'd try to make one, but I don't know how other than brute force running long test games to see who shows up. Even that would never be conclusive.

You mean a document like this?

The hero mapping in edi's database is incomplete FFS. That isn't what people are asking for. They want a complete document. I don't know why they do, personally, but they do.

No, not really.

It's great for a lot of things, but it's hardly comprehensive on heroes.

If I was going to try to create one, I'd start with those heroes, but I wouldn't know where to go after that, other than just running lots of test turns, which is neither efficient or conclusive.
