Hero Mode Woes
So I beat the game in hero mode today, and then I thought 'hey I finished now, so I can go back and recruit people' so I did that, but what I didn't realise is that those recruited heros carry over to new game + so now I assume I am ineligible for hero mode for new game +.

Really makes me want to not bother with new game + anymore. That said the game is amazing and I really enjoyed my playthrough ( though not being able to boost 5 my healer due to a freeze bug that happens was a tad lame)

Hint:

You can just open up your save file and manually delete the extra recruits, and you're still eligible for the achievement. I can show you how.

Can I complete a play through in New Game+ with recruits unlocked, but never utilized in battle to get the achievement?

I think as soon as you buy recruits, you won't be able to get the achievement, even if you don't use them.

It's actually simple.

Just go to the Application Data folder (run %appdata%)
Defenders Quest > Local Store > SAVE_SLOT_(SLOTNUMBER).dfq
Open the save file with your favorite text editor (Mines Notepad++)

Find the character you want to delete (In my case it's Kastal the 4th recruited barbarian)
Highlight/Delete from the <character handle="ber4" name="Kastal" sex="male" hero="false">
To </character> (REMEMBER IN YOUR CASE THE HANDLE/NAME WILL BE DIFFERENT)
