  1. Today I ran Boromir Sam Balin leadership deck with a lot of allies, visionary leadership(think it is 95% one of Tracker1s, I have since added Galadriel and Gimli who rule in this deck) and absolutely housed Helms Deep solo. Stayed on Stage 2A for the entire quest until I made it to stage 5A. Had a decent draw from encounter deck, with no nasty treacheries poppping out, but was able to travel strategically and let the deck make a little progress if it suited the situation. This quest certainly seems easier for solo players(for once) but it honestly might be my favorite.
  2. I managed to beat I was just able to beat it with Boromir and Eowyn, lot of questing alies and only tactics cards were to get boromir boosted. Song of Travel turn 1 was a must for early 2 cost allies. Would be interested in other's solo decks, anyone post one?
  3. Haven't tried the scenarios yet til they get up on OCTGN, but re: Helms Deep, if your WP is less than threat, the enemies make progress on the locations/quest. This is bad. Quests seem very cool, new "wizardry" keyword, a bit similar to Scour but triggers when locations are explored in the Isengard quest. Isengard quest has a few copies of ent Objective allies, and you spend the first quest card trying to get them to join you which is pretty sweet.
  4. Ok so the tactics attachment is Arod. 1 Cost, Mount. It's unique so can't stack, but cam work with the Horse Breeding and the Rohan event to get +3.
  5. Sounds too good to be true I've meant to ask why the hate on Leadership? One of most fun solo decks I have is leadership. Can be very powerful but since no cancellation very risky
  6. So I dont have all the details for this one like restircted, unique and such since I forget them, but there is a 1 Cost Tactics Attachment. Attach to a Hero or Legolas. After attached character destroys an enemy, place 1 progress on the current quest. I may have some of the wording wrong but thats the gist
  7. Deadmans Dike is giving me some real trouble. I thought I had the game in hand when the Sorcery card made me discard a just played Gandalf and Faramir. Then the Boss killed a hero and it was time to scoop. Another game, also had the board under control, had one enemy engaged. Staging is a side quest, fine. WITH SURGE, oh no! Surges into a Cursed, dead, which brought 2 more back from discard. Now I have 4 enemies engaged. Well played, encounter deck, well played. Oh, the side quest was one where it brought back one undead enemy each refresh phase too. Scoop.
  8. There are some encounter quests in Lost Realm without Surge
  9. Isn't this card errata'do to be one per hero? Either way with Gandalf you get a free card each phase, but you reference multiple copies so that wouldn't matter
  10. 'Has anyone seen the card "Hunting the Orcs" that you're suppose to add to the staging area as part of the setup? i swear ive looked through my box like 10 times' Dont feel bad, I couldnt find it as well at first. Kinda of a silly decision to make the side the player needs to find for the start of the quest on the 'backside' of a double sided objective card, seeing as how this is the first double sided non-quest card of the game's history.
  11. Even with Time I think Antlered Crown is one of my favorites. Can be difficult but not too difficult. Played 2P the other day and a couple times it looked like we had lost if it wasn't for some location management. Very fun. I think this cycle was one of the best, Tharbad was a bit too easy for Solo player, and Nin in ElPh kinda annoyed me because it could destroy any strategy depending on the quest you draw, but overall a strong cycle and I have nothing but optimism for the direction the game is heading
  12. Holding bow with left hand=You are right hand dominant. I couldn't be more right handed, and hold a bow in my left hand and pull back with my stronger and more dextrous right hand. I will say however that any great archer can/should be able to use both.
  13. Well just got my butt beat by Celebrimbor so I can wait for AC. I've handled that one well but it can vary quite a bit. Very happy with it.
