Longbeard Orc Slayer

Pity he hadn't killed just one more for you, given his flavour text and all :)

Yeah, maybe I should have waited :-) but it was only 2 player game. I think in 4p this guy could be even beter in this quest.

Thalin + Sneak Attack Longbeard Orc Slayer = lots of dead orcs with 2HP. I killed 4 orcs with this guy once in 7th level.

When I am playing secrecy, I am sad that the willpower boost last only until the end of the phase. So you use it to lower your threat below 20 for Resourceful and then the willpower bonus is a waste. But this is only a nitpick on otherwise great card!

I think that he really needed that nerf - there is no other ally with 3 cost and 4 attack. I still use him as a late game finisher and he works pretty well. Last night I played him and he got 5 attack, not bad for a 3 cost ally!

Yep Arwen is a solid way to use this card if you may not be using Glorfindel or Galadriel.

Just slot him into a deck with leadership (no need to incldue tactics) because you can get him into play with A Very Good Tale and with Sneak Attack.

Since it doesn't specificy between "ally" or "hero" like some cards do, this works for any unique Noldor character (ally or hero) that you might control.  But they do have to be in play.

You can only play this card if there is a Noldor character in play and under your control. "Control" always refers to cards that are in play, never in your deck or hand.

When it says "If you control a unique Noldor character", it means that the character is in your deck or in your hand, if it's a Noldor ally?

I believe it would just be the last player in that turn that doesn't have to reveal a card.

How does this interact with the staging rules from The Black Riders, where each player reveals an encounter card and resolves it, rather than just X cards are revealed? Which player is the one that doesn't reveal a card?

This is an awesome card! Being able to trap a powerful enemy is great.

You can put weapon attachments on him to boost him, he can get pretty powerful.

Well... it was too good to be true... Seems that Caleb clarified this situation, and here, x = 0, so you can't play cards like Gandalf's Search with Vilya.

Another way to make the game more... challenging.

Because he only works with dwarf allies now, he's not nearly as good. There aren't many tactic dwarf allies, so you need to combine with a sphere that can provide plenty of these, like lore. When I tried him in a tactic/spirit dwarf deck, I found I could not get enough dwarf allies in play to justify the three cost. Plus, tactics is full of smal cost but useful attachments and events, making it even harder to free up those 3 resources to pay for this guy. He's always ended up being pretty much useless. If he hadn't been nerfed, though, he would be overpowered if used in a dwarf deck 3 cost for 4 power). I kind of feel FFG really screwed up with this one, both in the design and the supposed fix.

I found this in the FAQ :

(1.40) The letter X

Unless specified by a card effect, or granted player choice, the letter "X" is equal to 0. 

I only see the granted player choice part when I read the FAQ... and for all the times that the game rectifies rules that don,t exactly help the player, this one makes GS and Vilya AWESOME!  ;)
