Type: Quest
Encounter Set: the Battle of Carn Dûm
Encounter Info:
Quest Points: 15

Setup: Add Thaurdir to the staging area, Captain side faceup. Add 1 copy of Carn Dûm Garrison per player to the staging area. Search the encounter deck for 1 copy of Accursed Battlefield and make it the active location. Shuffle the encounter deck.

Thaurdir cannot leave the staging area and cannot take damage. At the end of the round, if Thaurdir is Champion side faceup, flip him.

Your company has made its way swiftly north, and finally the fortress of Carn Dûm looms before you. Unsure if you have arrived in time, you can only hope beyond hope that Iârion is still alive.

My wife and I have tried over 30 times with several of decks and could not get past but one side quest at best. The constant sorceries and game-breaking cards (Orc Ambush?!?) just seem too much.  Cair Andros and the Balrog seem easy in comparison! Anyone have any success beating this scenario?

 It is arguably the hardest quest to date - I believe it is only the second quest to receive a difficulty rating of 8.   I haven't had time to play it more than a few times, but there is a hotly debated thread on FFG's forum discussing this encounter. There are several deck ideas giving throughout it that may help you out.
