An important thing to remember is that the game is balanced around you having 3 specs and you can use any of them. You do not have to only use the balance spells with the balance Tech 2/3 units. In fact because you can use any of the spells, most specs spells point to a different direction/strategy to their Tech 2 units (and the tech 2/3 units generally allow 2/3 ways of playing a spec). So for Balance for example, I can either go with a denial approach, using large heros defending with Moments Peace to get a quick Tech 3/Ulted Midori online, I can go for a Flying death ball with Wandering Mimic, Max Midori and Fairie Dragons. I can go for super quick tech 2 rush with Circle of Life or even an Big unit smash down with Dothram Horselords. Each can play to their own strength and you can transition between stratagies if it doesn’t work against your opponents play. Just remember that some of these strats like playing with other Specs Heros Spell or units, but also that each spec is not a single tool with only one strength.
