Basic information about Wielders

The most important when it comes to choosing Wielders are their specializations and starting attributes - the latter allowing you to discern the given hero from remaining available in the faction. Specializations are fixed, while attributes can be additionally improved e.g. by visiting map locations, buying skills, or equipping artifacts from inventory (the boost is only active when the item is equipped in one of the active slots).
