Should read: “Raise your threat by 1 to ready Boromir. (Limit once per phase.)”

I think he is still great with his new limitations. He can defend attacks during the quest phase, and with only a few readying cards, you get one extra readying effect. — Lecitadin 129

Boromir is OP. Period. Even without the Blood/Fire/Steward shenanigans he's incredible. With the amount of threat reduction available at this point in the game's life, you could build a deck entirely devoted to threat reduction to keep that Boromir player up and running. There's also the deck idea of setting up the other players to do their thing and then die before revealing encounter cards. Boromir fits right in to it. Honestly, there is no limit to the power of Boromir (and I don't want him errata'd!).
