Bug Fixings
Fix the bug that when the hero equips Talent Card to increase Damage, Armor, and Hp of soldiers, the Talent Card is effective for not only the soldiers led by the hero but the other soldiers.

After fixing the bug, the talent of the hero will be effective for only the soldiers led by him or her. Due to this, troops’ overall abilities of some players will decline and thus the Explore, Faction Battle and Battle Report will be affected to some extent.
