Reviews

Legolas is a very good hero! He's one of the most efficient heroes in the core set. His ability is a response, so you could use him even in a turtle deck. His main competition comes from Brand and Bard, the other ranged tactics heroes. But Brand only works in multiplayer and Bard has more wasted stats than seastan has likes. Plus, as an elf, Legolas has access to an entire suite of weapon attachments.

Legolas is my favourite hero from the core set. His stats are not so great however his and his ability is the only thing which really matters, since I don't use him for nothing else and with Blade of Gondolin he is usually the one, who wins the scenario for me. Great artwork. Verdict: 5/5.

We always use him in a Fellowship, since its ability to put progress token on the quest (provided the active location is cleared of course) outside the quest phase, and to boot through a Response with no limit per phase or round so it can be better abused with some readying effects, is often unvaluable since it can let us advance of quest stage with a timing more advantageous for the players. That alone makes it always worthwile in my eyes. — Alonewolf87 100
