I love this character so much. By FAR my favorite character. I really hope the one/people who created it read this and feel appreciated. Thanks for this addition.

@Ofey If all you want to do is throw money at them, buy their game called Star of Providence. And if you like twin stick shooters, hey, you get a good game out of it too.

Does anyone know if the Hermit has a Sensory Stone? I imagine that he and his wife got killed, but I don't really understand the context.

Is it just me or does the Hermit really struggle at 3 energy? Vanilla characters all have access to reliable energy generation and/or low-energy strategies for when you don't get an energy boss relic or choose not to take one. I don't really see such options here. Eternal Form is a powerful energy generator, but it's a rare card that you're not guaranteed to see. Showdown can play all your Strikes for 1 cost - very useful in hallway fights but good luck making it work against the Heart. Eye of the Storm is nice with several copies of Coalesce in your deck or Pyramid, but being an exhausting card, it's not quite enough in longer fights, without retain it's almost dead draw.

Only at 5 energy does Hermit start to feel comfortable, especially in a Dead-On deck, since you might have to play more cards to make the important ones actually Dead-On, particularly with Combo in play. Is there something I'm not seeing? I'm not saying Hermit is bad necessarily, just sharing my observations.

To be fair, the heart is deliberately designed to require very specific builds with all vanilla characters (Which is why barely anybody I know cares about beating it more than once since going for the heart rather than just finishing act 3 just absolutely destroys player choice and build variety in this game)
But yeah, this problem's worse with Hermit imo, agreed.
I cant freaking beat the heart with this character. I have succeeded with all characters; but this one seems to require such a specific setup against the heart that it may take forever to succeed.
A lot of cards seem to be absolutely useless or underwhelming, making potential builds quite limited.

Have to agree with Skoll, Hermit used to be pretty fun but good lord he's just a slog to try and make work now.
