How is Grisban underpowered?

No. It has been ruled that "moved" basically just means you changed spaces at any point during your turn. They don't work together. In my opinion, that is a big negative to using her as a knight.

Yea weasels this is a common mistake because everyone thinks "ok so why would they make her the knight if those two abilities didn't work together..."

Tis unfortunate but nay. She makes a great beast master though if you ever pick up the expansions! :D

Oh, that's unfortunate; Syndrael now seems a whole lot less exciting as a Knight. If the OL parks his monsters right in front of Syndrael she can whale away at them for a turn and recover some fatigue, but I haven't seen many situations where this happens. She'd work better if you picked up a Reach weapon (or played a Beastmaster :D ).

I think it's okay that Syndrael's hero ability doesn't come into play that often, she has the best heroic feat in the game.

 

Not so sure. Mo'k's one is really strong, if not better.

Rugal - The number of games you will straight-out win due to the immense strategic advantage Syndrael's heroic feat gives you is significant. Mok discards a card from the OL's hand; sometimes this will be great. I won't argue that there are undoubtedly situations where this will win a game for the heroes. Those will be rare and extremely far between, though.

 

Not saying Mok - even after two nerfs - isn't incredibly powerful. But it's his hero ability, not his heroic feat, that's powerful.

His heroic is wonderful, certainly worthy of being called one of the best in the game. A group centred around fatigue regeneration and movement with heroic actions like his is a very very powerful combination against an OL.

Synderael (warrior), Jain Wildlander (rogue), High mage Quellen (mage) are all able to move incredible amounts with their heroic abilities, being able to use burst movement certainly gives the heroes a massive edge. Their relatively low strength can be bolstered by items (to avoid web-traps) and to make sure the healer is able to remove a condition for at least a single target such as Avric Albright(healer) as Disciple. You could choose instead choose a different health with more strength to make the use of web-trap even less tempting to the OL.

Grisbane on the other hand is painfully painfully slow and i find him unable to keep up in groups where i like to do a lot of burst movement.

Elder Mok as a bard... because SYNERGY!

I'm fighting one of those right now, it's actually quite a good combination. He uses the lute "for free" every round.

Yup, or just sing the heal song or the stamina song. Stamina song now gives you stamina too.:)

 

Sell that lute to buy more loot!
