I've heard several ways people choose characters to play:

1) Minmax. Take an hour reading through everything and pick optimal
2) Reduced minmax. Randomly choose X heroes and Y classes, minmax from those
3) Random. Random draw of heroes & classes = your character
4) Randomish. Random, but with X # of redraws

I'm curious which option provides the most fun for your group (especially if you use something besides these)

Someone is always a healer. The other heroes just depend on what people like to play with. They look at all the hero cards and pick based on the stats or abilities they think would be fun to use. We've had one of each, another time was healer, mage, and 2 warriors.

I've been playing solo and I pick the chars I want and randomize their classes - force myself to try new combos and such. Solo, I care less about being the most efficient version of each character I can be and find it more fun to see what happens.

We always just pick what we feel like playing.
