I think the dot from minions, Bera’s moths included, is also reflected. I think I heard about other, upcoming heroes with dot-dealing minions, though these are just vague recollections, not sure at all. And even if the meta moved on, which is true without a doubt, I still see every day Vela, Gravemaker, JF, Clarissa and the others. Maybe they are not dominant anymore, but still lingering around.
I raid most of the time in a milieu where people make do with some older heroes mixed to the newest ones. So I think Elradir has some future with me. Also, the presence of Mother North in my roster helps me trust Elradir can have a place.
