So I just got the game and trying to play it solo to learn.
I have chosen Eowyn and Dunhere as my heros.
With Eowyn, I start with 4 willpower, I can discard a card each turn to add +1 willpower, and the deck comes with power of the lady attachment, which adds an additional +1. So Eowyn effectively has 6 willpower. The quest starts with 3 threat. If I quest with all of my players, I'll have at a minimum 7 willpower, likely more, so I gain 4 progress+ per turn. This means quest 1A takes 2 turns to complete, 2A takes 1 turn to complete. Then I have to kill a spider. Since my threat level starts at 17, I'm not getting attacked by anything that reaches staging, and the game takes only a handful of turns to complete. Am I doing something wrong? Completely underwhelmed by the difficulty of the game? I haven't played through 3A yet, because the first 2 stages went so fast I figured I must be doing something wrong. Please enlighten me. Thanks.
