I play against Wacher already. 134 my best result for now. Is quite high scores but i still win most of the games. Yes is more difficult then RTR but RHG is still better in my choice. In previous Lotr from Decipher Wacher was a stupid card no one play him never. And here is also not really exiting. But still better then RTR is already good. Hope Long dark and next 3 quest will be better.
I think that Redhorn Gate is probably the best quest published so far, but I also grow fond of TWitW. For me it's one of those quests that get better the more you play it - and it encourages the use of the tactics sphere. I have no clue how you beat the Watcher without Boromir - I guess you try to open the door instead of fighting the Watcher, but what do you do with all the enemies? Frodo can take some of the damage, and the rest is healed by lore cards?
Ok, I have an idea what the answer might be. Might try a lore/spirit deck soon, but right now I have tons of fun with Boromir and Loragorn.
Actually i agree with you. Anyway second cycle is better then first one only RTR is little bit dissapointed.
I didn have big problem with tentacles cose i can defend against them with Bilbo (Fast hitch,protector of Lorien+Arwen one more defense).
Most of the forced effect work when you attack tentacles so im just leave them engage and build up my force.
On the second quest card you shuffle all tentacles back and then you need mostly is : G S or T. So you discard 4 cards and most of the time i open the door.
Then you quest with protector of lorien and you win. Also i can use Forest snare on Watcher and he is no problem anymore.
Yes i can even kill Watcher if i have Haldir, Gildor and Gandalf +Sneak attack and even try to make both: Kill him and Open the door but is more difficult.
I come to 121 points now is the best result.
Now we play Nightmare mode RHG and RTR cose those 2 adventures link together. You bring Arwen back home!
And then RTR is cool!
Otherwise if is more difficult then 4 no possible to play it after RHG. We don reset wound, Threat and discard pile. Dont use Will of the West and Beravur.
Really, really cool experience. We try 3 times and always lose on the first stage of RTR. But game is really amazing in this mode. You must really think and really work together. Now i understand why they make it difficult 4. If is 5 or 6 there is no chance to make as a nightmare after RHG.
I suggest to try it. Sure you will like it.
Boromir and Laragorn??? Sounds really cool! You have secrecy deck? only 2 heroes? Good idea!!! I want to try it!
