I found this card very useful only recently and since then i put it to decks right next to the Feint cards. Best events in sphere so far for me. The artwork is somehow strange, cause I'm not sure if the Orc already lost his head, or if he's going to be attacked from behind. And the vampire teethes...looks strange. Anyway. Verdict: 4/5.

I've never found myself using Quick Strike, despite it's awesomeness. There was a lot of controversy over this an the subject of immune to player card effects enemies, but the confusion passed. Note that it's not restricted to enemies engaged with you, so Haldir, Legolas, Brand, Bard, Dunhere, or any good ranged attacker are great candidates for this. My personal favorite target is Gimli. Muah ha ha haha!

I'm confused. You mentioned a bunch of ranged heroes and then Gimli who doesn't have it. Are you sure you can attack enemies in the staging area with this? It says elligible targets, so wouldn't an enemy in the staging area not be an elligible target since you can't normally attack enemies in the staging area? — You bow to no one 1
Oh wait, you said enemies not engaged with you. My bad! — You bow to no one 1
