I find it hard to use him, if you mostly quest with him, then why not take Eowyn (Core)? If you use him for combat, why not Legolas (Core). He might be useful, when you have to stay flexible and don't have to worry about his high threat. But his ability is also subpar. Poor Glorfindel.
Can be very useful in a right deck and situation but the ability is usually among the weakest, shockingly, given the back-story. Hope the new version is coming soon!
Most times, we use him for his stats and healing but his threat is indeed quite high.

I like the game, movie, and books, but I don't like his portrait.  There are a few other cards that I think have weak artwork.  One of the dwarves looks like santa clause.  Seriously, is it a man?

All elves are slender of build and have delicate features. Can´t very well make him too burly.

Sadly this heroe became useless after a few expansions appeared. I really would like to make this version usable again. What would you guys think about changing the "Limit once per round" restriction to "Limit once per phase", or even removing this restriction completely?
