Here is a comparison between the FoG and AoE equivalent units to inform players. You can clearly see that FoG units have more skills, equipment slots and/or HP/stats. And whoever is balancing the sides is obviously biased towards FoG.
FoG Frostgiant Warrior (Core): 910HP 702att 702def, Banner slot, Instrument slot, attack 27+3, defend 27+3, Rally self, 70melee damage to shadowelf, 80melee damage to any after 1 round, Skill = 120melee to shadowelf
NON-MUTUAL SKILLS: Reduce 10 water damage taken until end of battle, stun 1 enemy 1 round (occur two times)
This unit has 312HP and 52att/def more than the AoE equivalent. Seriously. What. The. Hell.

NON-MUTUAL SKILLS: Reduce 20 air damage taken until end of battle, Chance to remove bane from own unit, Chance to cancel opponent’s spell (once per battle), Stun 1 enemy hero 3 rounds (once per battle. This basically kills off an enemy hero for half the battle)

Zash is probably the best balanced hero, with same number of skills and equip slots as the FoG equivalent, probably will be stronger when more beasts released.

Also not to forget FoG have a farmable R5 elite, whereas AoE doesn’t.
And the FoG equipment from earlier regions all give universal, useful buffs:
+Heal all 10 instrument (Lyre of serendipity gives Song of Joy)

+Heal chance to all artifact(Silver chalice gives Kismet)
+Fire resistance 20 to all artifact(fire wards gives dampen fire)
+Rally chance to all artifact (Golden brooch gives Courage)

Banner deals 30 damage to enemy and 15damage to self
Artifact that adds “demon” tag to the hero that equips it
Artifact +3 death dmage to all
Artifact chance to fear 2 enemy units
