Bombur

Yesterday, 01:50 PM by Thror

Very good ally for Khazad Dum and the last three dwarrowdelf packs. Otherwise useless. I also agree with campico that Bombur should have one extra defense.

3/5 ally.

I haven´t never used him because i always have Bifur hero in play.

But i think he´s good ally, maybe 4 stars.

What? But then this card would suck and i wouldn´t never play it anymore :(

Nah just have some cheap canon-fodder standing by.

If you are playing solo the chance that you will work all the way through the encounter deck to meet that enemy again is quite small (barring reshuffles of course but think most of those are avoidable with Test of Will)

You might have seen this in the FAQ [granted it's about Forced and not Response but wording is the same]:

Q: When do “after this enemy attacks” Forced effects like those on Chieftan Ufthak (CORE 90) and Wargs (CORE 85) resolve?
A: These effects resolve immediately after step 4 of enemy attack resolution.

Sadly, step 4 is determining combat damage...

I seem to recall having read somewhere a long time ago that "after an enemy attacks" and "after an enemy attack is resolved" both mean the same thing: that the enemy attack must be over. I would be hard pressed to point you to a quotation on it though.

 

On a side note I have used this card on NM Conflict at the Carrock in a solo-low-threat-spirit deck to pick off 3 of the trolls one at a time; the 2 last being immune to events had to be clubbered but that went fairly well.

I've considered Will of the West in my Silvan deck that uses a lot of events. Once the events go, they're gone, so reshuffling them into a deck thinned from attachments and allies (since they're in play!) can really be a nice benefit. 

 

I was going to use this last night in my Spirit deck that partnered that Silvan deck, but...It got cut. So, there are uses, but I think there's more powerful cards these days. 

If that is your specific goal, I´d think that map of Earnil and dwarven tomb are better options.

Spirit also has alot of allies that gets sacrificed for various reasons, which you might want to get back; I´ve only used Will of the West myself when I plan on cycling through my deck fast with stuff like Emery and/or Ancient Mathom. Don´t underestimate the power of lot´s of cheap cards.

Besides the points I mentioned earlier, there´s also still the option of playing a deck where you need all your heroes to be hobbits.

My favourite secrecy card. Really love it 4/5.

Pretty good card i think. Not shure that would it be 3 or 4 star card tough.

Oh but anyway this is so great when playing Escape from Dol Guldur with Loragorn. Uses this card to Nazgul: "That was AWESOME!"

Does this send the enemy away before they're able to hit you the first time?  Sorry about the rules question, but I can't find the answer spelled out for me anywhere specifically.

I think that yes because otherwise that card should read: After an enemy´s attack is resolved...

Not 100% shure but 99% shure :P

He is useful if you want to have a 4 sphere dwarf deck.

Pretty dull hero i think. 2/5 only.

Well if you are running with only one spirit hero, then it could be little bit expensive, but to me this is really good card in my 2-player deck where i usually use Eowyn, Frodo and Glorfindel. And if you have Frodo you can use Good Meal to lower it´s cost to 1 ;)

Bilbo sucks.  For those that want to play him thematically here's away to make the most of him.  

Common Cause & Spare Hood and Cloak.  Basically, use him to ready other heroes.  

 

He sucks- play with other heroes.  But if you are building a theme based deck the cards above will help thematically make him useful as a support to the rest of the team.   

I wouldn´t say he sucks. He´s more likely "B-tier hero" and he can be pretty good when playing solo or Outlands decks. Just saying. To me he´s 3 star hero.

You maybe think this way 'cause you probably never played the 2nd scenario of The Hobbit: OHaUH. The "Riddles in the Dark" part is very difficult to pass without this card. And that's not the only scenario where I think this card would work well...

I have been played it but never needed that card even in that quest. But everyone has it´s own play style and someone could need this card if using somekind of discarding deck or something like that.
