Not as good as Feint (Core) in my opinion.

Can I target an enemy in the staging area with this ?...
You can target enemies you could normally legally attack. So if you use
Quick Strike on Dunhere (Core) can target an enemy in the staging area (in fact, this can't be quite good during the quest phase to knock out a high-threat enemy) but otherwise, no.

This card is excellent, if used in combination with +atk powers (Gimli with damage, Support of the Eagles, Dundain Mark etc) which allow you to kill with a single blow. Gives you a lot of flexibility. Feint is better for dealing with large enemies early game, but otherwise I find Quick Strike to be the stronger card.

thanks !

I think Quick Strike only ever is better than Feint, when the timing matters, like killing someone with Dunhere before threat gets counted, or killing someone with Legolas to remove a negative location effect from play. If the timing is not an issue, than Gimli doesn't care whether he kills the dude in phase 3 or 6.
If I use quick strike to exhaust a hero in resource phase , attack an enemy ,and use “Unexpected Courage ”to ready him , can I use this hero to attack the same enemy in combat phase? the rule says " Each player can declarean attack (with any number of eligible attackers hecontrols) against each enemy with which he is engaged once each round. " so is it legal or illegal?

Official Answer from Nate:
"The standard framework of the game provides players with the opportunity to declare 1 attack against each enemy each round. Effects that enable attacks are in addition to the effects enabled by the game framework, so a quick-strike attack does not "eliminate" the standard attack that the game is enabling that round."
So yes, it is legal.

Can you Quick Strike a "Immune to Player Card effects" enemy?

Quick strike targets your character and makes it eligible for an attack against an enemy. I would say it's perfectly legal because the enemy is never targeted by this card.

From the FAQ:

Q: Can I use Quick Strike (Core 35) to declare an attack against an enemy that is immune to player card effects?
A: Yes. The effect of Quick Strike targets a character and allows that character to make an attack, therefore the chosen enemy's immunity does not factor.

 

That;s what I figured. Thanks. Where is the FAQ? There is probably other questions I have that are in there.

So for the guys with more shields you could get 2 uses out of Bard's effect by using this and some way to stand him - like Unexpected Courage.  awesome.

That's how I killed the Witch-King in A Knife in the Dark: Quick Strike with Merry (4 Hobbit Heros) with 2 Daggers, Halfling Determanation, and Unex Courage. Defended with a pumped up Sam, then Merry and a couple of Allies for the kill.

Can I target an enemy in the staging area with this ?...

Dunhere can use Quick Strike to attack the staging area. With an archer and Hands Upon The Bow, a spirit/tactics mix can hit the staging area pretty hard before the quest is even resolved.
