I've been scouring the interwebbings for this info and can't seem to find this info. Does anyone have a list of all the lieutenants that are also playable as heroes? I did find one, Serena but I'm having trouble locating the others. Looking to add the best bang for the buck for RtL.

I was hoping to find someone who recreated them as heroes.

In truth Lieutenant Packs in general are low bang-to-buck value in RtL, even with Serena and Raythen. If you find their Hero versions appealing, then all the more power to you. The Peril effect that summons them is pretty rare and the included plot deck has no bearing on RtL at all.

Labyrinth of Ruin and Shadow of Nerekhall are probably your best value to money spent for RtL purposes, and in general. Both have a nice variety of new heroes (Four each), new monsters (four each), new hero classes (four each), act I (11 each) and act II (10 each) shop cards, and a full side quest.

There is at least one card it definitely does not use, and that is the Jinn's Lamp from LoR, because RtL does not deal with the shop deck in the usual manner. Whether the app uses all of the other cards, I do not quite know.
