The Hero is a versatile character that can fulfill the role of either damage dealer or tank. It's a good idea to decide which role you want to give him early on in order to specialize him that way. Stat-up potions are limited, acquiring new skills is expensive, and not everything he does will be useful for you, depending on your style. For example, Assault is useful for fighters, but not mages; if you prefer to bring along two or even three mages, Blazing Aura is a much better option.
