I really don't like Elronds ring hero function. I hate that The Fellowship is a battalion not all 9 heroes separately. I just hate the fact that Legolas isn't using his bow , which he used a a lot more than the daggers in the war of the ring. Yes he might use it once with Weapon Throw but I want him to use it as his primary weapon.
Maybe give us all 9 heroes separately at max level, not with all the abilities and a passive skill that applies to them all. Abilities are based on their journey, they haven't visited Lothlorien yet.
Gandalf the Grey: Wizard blast, Lightning sword and Mount.
Aragon: Blade Master, Athelas and Elendil.
Boromir: Last Stand, Horn of Gondor and Brave Resistance.
Legolas: Knife Fighter, Hawk Strike and Elven Eye.
Gimli: Axe Throw, Leap Attack and Slayer
Frodo: Alternate Weapon, The One Ring and Frodo's Mithril Shirt.
Sam: Alternate Weapon, Frying Pan and For Frodo.
Merry: Alternate Weapon, Eagerness of the Fool.
Pippin: Alternate Weapon, Curiosity of the Fool.
Maybe give Merry and Pippin a passive abilities that when they are near each other they get an armor and damage boost.
Plus the passive ability Fellowship of the Ring for everyone and add a another effect to that ability: decrease armor and damage of all members when a member dies(-10% = one fallen member)(-80% armor and damage to the last member alive). Effect disappears when all members are revived.
This is just my suggestion. Sorry for bad English!
Have a nice day!
