In the spirit of reading @Any2Cards' thread "Can you have fun if you are not winning?" I wanted to ask the question: What tactics could I use (as OL) to defeat this hero?
I generally play the OL in all of my games and when I play with my close friends and cousins, this is usually the hardest group I face off against. I always attempt to keep the game friendly and play as close to the rules as possible, back-tracking to fix missed dmg or healing for both sides. Luckily, win or lose, I'm always having fun cause we're playing my favorite board game.
Some setup info:
Plot Deck: Tristayne's Unstable Forces
- Wild Energy
- Explosive Fall
- Saboteur: Explosive Rune
- Universal: Dark Resilience
- Tatiyana: Stalker
- Ispher: Apothecary
- Nanok: Monk (Warrior, this is a custom class of mine being play tested)
- Leroic: Runemaster
After the intro, the heroes got very lucky with the shopping phase and pooled their money to buy the mage the Rune Plate. Now, to combo well with the Rune Plate, the mage bought Inscribe Rune skill. An obviously great move to keep that armor maxed out. So now, if we're all correct here, the mage is rolling 1 gray & black for defense. This has proven to be quite the challenge in defeating him.
We're currently on the 2nd quest for Act 1 in the LoR campaign and we're in Fury of the Tempest (FotT), E2. I have since then started pulling monsters with high piercing (still waiting to pull the Deep Elf) to counter act this high AC of the mage. For act 1 of FotT, my open group consisted of Hybrid Sentinels. The 'pray on the weak' skill has been good to counter act Leroic's hero ability but still, high rolls on the AC.
I'm not very good with card combos or seeing the fine details of my actions. I kinda just usually pick randomly, hence the Plot Deck. So I guess my real question is this: with many more cards to choose from for OL cards, what would probably be the next best moves for either purchasing OL cards or plot deck cards?
Also, can anyone point me in the right direction of a threat that helps OL's fine-tune their skills against example groups (if one exists)?
