So does/can the Forced +1 threat happen multiple times per round for a solo player?

 

ie. Resource phase==> 1 threat

then

exhaust King Under the Mountain ==> 2 threat

then

purchase gandalf, use response to draw 3 cards ==> 3 threat

 

and with multiple players, would those other players add to threat as well?

 

ie. Resource phase ==> 4 threat

then We are not idle ==> 5 threat

 

Any thoughts would be great?

One of my favorite solo deck type is one spirit and two tactics heroes. This card can be very good for this setup. You can use feint or similair effect to keep one enemy engaged. 

 

This Dúnedain combo-wombo can also be very effective against boses. For example Balrog from Shadow and Flame is considered to be engaged with all players with threat greater then 0.

Nenya would still work since you are triggering Nenya's effect and exhausting the hero to pay the cost, which isn't precluded by this effect. Similiarly, you could still use Palantir or Peace and Thought.

Can you still use nenya with galadriel for questing? Essentially nenya does the questing not galadriel.

There isn't really optional engagement "checks" since you can optionally engage any enemy, regardless of their threat level (excluding any cards that have text that also prevent optional engagements).  So yes, you can still optionally engage this enemy if you want.  It just will never forcibly engage a player due to an engagement check.

From a spirit deck that isn't trying to be engaged with an enemy, this is great for adding a bit of questing power to your friends.  Even better when facing the spectral keyword!

Must have card for Redhorn gate and overral decent card, but for me it's not because if i'm playing with spirit, 95% of times i play is all spirit heroes (is it mono sphere deck?). In my opinion 3/5

Can you still make optional engagement checks against an attached enemy? Or can you only attack them in other ways to clear it from the staging area?

Ah I'm not sure there.  I know if a player puts an attachment on your character, you are considered to be the controller of that card.   But I don't recall seeing anything about encounter card attachments.

I ment "his"in shadow effect. If it is legal to discard condition attachment Local Trouble through this shadow effect and if I have to discard Alcarons Scroll in case of undefended attack.

I'm pretty sure the defending player and the reference to "his" is always the player the enemy is attacking, not who controls the character that happens to defend - in the case of sentinel.

That seems pretty cool, I have to admit.

Do you have to damage 2nd and if this dies, then 3rd character or you can distribute damage even among 2 or more characters?

---

A friend of mine found this answer:

Q: I'm curious as to how the Cave Troll's splash damage is supposed to work. Do I need to choose a character to take as much of that damage as they can before dying (with any extra continuing to a third character), or are those 3 points of damage to be distributed among my characters as I see fit? The official response from someone else asking about the Cave Troll was: “The 'overflow' damage is assigned point by point. If it kills off a character, there is still overflow from the attack that needs to be assigned.” Phrases like “for each point of damage” and “point by point” seem to me to suggest that it is the latter, that the damage is freely distributed.
A: You can distribute the excess damage as you see fit. Each point (as per the language on the Troll) is resolved individually.

Combo him with Rivendell blade and Straight shot for value!

Very nice and cheep attachment! Maybe it can even be combined with Dark knoledge to cancel its -1 wilpower effect.

The question is, what does "his" stand for? Is it the same as "he controls" or not?

Legolas

Should be any attack. Probably worded that way instead of "after Legolas attacks and destroys" Otherwise, one might assume he would have to do it alone.

Legolas

The card text says "After Legolas participates...". It does it mean that ability is triggered when you attack an enemy with Legolas AND another character, does it? Or does it mean any attack?

No problem. It even allows you to attach several "attach to a hero with X printed icon" to Gandalf when he is playing it off the top of the deck. That's part of what makes him crazy good.
