Gondor. Noble.
Response: Exhaust Eleanor to cancel the "when revealed" effects of a treachery card just revealed by the encounter deck. Then, discard that card, and replace it with the new card from the encounter deck.

A so and so hero. Can be a life saver in many occasions and a dead card in some others. I usually play some Strength of Will (Core) whenever I run her. Common Cause (Core) can also increase her usefulness.

those cards sirprim mentioned are a must if you are using her, since it can happen many times that no when revealed effects come up and she is just useless since her attack and defensive capabilities are poor. She is more usable in multiplayer
Can be a life saver in some scenarios at certain times, but the fact you have to replace the encounter card puts a big crimp in her style. If you're running Spirit it's almost always better to go with copies of A Test of Will.
I must say we never use her. Even having only the core Spirit heroes, Frodo and Dwalin. May be because I rather often play with 3 and there you have to be careful with getting to much encounter in many scenarios, else you'll face an unmanagable amount of locations.

Been experimenting recently with combining her with cards which require you to exhaust a hero to use (spare hood and cloak, peace and though etc). Alot of the times when she isn´t used for treachery cancellation, we do manage to find other uses for her that way
The text on the card says "with the next card", however the transcript on this web page erroneously says "with the new card". I think this should be corrected. Note the errata does not change the text of the card to "the new card", it just clarifies that the player has to apply the "When revealed" effect from the new revealed card.
I think she is underrated. As far as defense goes, she has the best defense of the spirit cards in core, so for beginning players on a budget, she isn't a bad choice. In the core leadership and Spirit, only Aragorn can match her on defense, and when she is in play, she frees him up to attack until you can get some good defense allies going. That said, she would be very easy to outgrow quickly once you began collecting more cards.

Totally underrated - at first i thought it is lame that card is replaced, but when played with her effect feels more like "discard treachery from top of the deck to discard pile", not to mention next card may be something like Athelas from Rhosgobel.

And she is Gondor, so great target for Gondorian Shield or Blood of Numenor, so you can use her as defender if did not triggered ability this round.

yep.  she is awesome and pretty much a staple in any 3-4 person fellowship for our play group.

I think she is more of a 4/5. I have been playing a Gimli/Eleanor/Glorfindel deck and she has saved my butt a few times. I did an experiment and swapped her out with Frodo. When I did this and played Journey Down the Anduin, the treacheries I would have cancelled, instead killed all my questing allies! I was laughing about it because I got to see first hand what a difference she made. I even had A Test of Will in my deck, but I didn't have much card draw so no Test of Wills came out and there were several treacheries anyway and 1 or 2 Test of Wills would not have helped entirely.
