Responses:
A hero starting with Estates
Lord Haart (Estates and Estates specialty)

A +1 rare resource hero

Lord Haart beats the other Estates Heroes if for nothing else than that he has the specialty to go along with it.

The +350 Gold per day Heroes may seem nice, but with a few levels, Lord Haart outperforms those, so those are also secondary to Lord Haart.

Leaves the rare Resource specialists ... the main problem is that each Town usually only relies heavily on one particular resource, for its Tier 7 creature. Furthermore, availability (or lack thereof) of specific Mines will impact the usefulness of such a Hero over what Lord Haart brings.

Leena > Haart >  estates > 350g > resource

Getting max estate is easy so those over 350g and I value 350 gold over the resource usually

oh god another useless "what would you do" TAG, guess who is the author, not hard

And of course it depends on: faction, style of map, game length and heroes availability. Is like asking what is better: bike, car, train or plane.

Why is it useless?
So you don't care if you can have Aine or Cuthbert?, fine you can have Cuthbert.
Of course it depends, that answer you can give to pretty much any question ever asked in relation to Heroes 3, but then I'll try again: "Which kind of hero do you generally prefer?"

Of course I care, Aine would be better if I get a not too expensive faction (stronghold for example) and I plan kicking your butt before day 7 with behemots. You must first invest in Cuthbert to have return, so is like in real life, it takes longer.

They are all kinda bad. In normal competitive game things like mines or resources heroes are useless. If I was forced to choose one in a game for some reason that would be Septienna for her inteligence or Clavius for necro.

Recently I tried a map where the mapmaker allowed me to hire a level 6244 Haart (I think) that only lived for a day but in the process gave me one thousand six hundreds and something. Does this answer your question?

LOL normally I don't reach levels much over 25, but if we are talking about such absurd high levels, then it's safe to say that Lord Haart is a VERY GOOD hero.

It depends. Games with such high levels might see golden mountains already, so Lord Haart's contribution each turn might not be more than a drop in the ocean .

lvl 6244 Lord Haart, that should be 156000 gold. this is ofcourse not realistic

realistically looking, level 40 gives 1500 gold

so not good enough for me. Leena about lvl 5 is already at 850 goldies

Depends on town and game state

Early game ressource and for towns lacking a proper Silo (+1Wood + 1Ore is junk imho).

Gold heroes are always top.

Lord Haart is junk aswell, since his ability is just useful lvl 14+ compared to Leena.

(1 + 14 * 0.05) * 500 = 850
Leena is earlier at 850 Gold. Latest at lvl 7 if you just skill estates and have bad luck with pathfinding levelup. LvL 14 takes 2.6 the exp amount of lvl7.

Yeah, I think Leena might be a bit OP, she is the hero that earns the most gold from the start of the game.

I said it allowed me to hire, it was the only hero available after I hire the ones in tavern day one, so it was made on purpose.
It's nearly impossible to get those experience values by fighting monsters on the map, I only get things like that in Wog, fighting the Crusaders in the Adventure Cave and only when it's bugged...
