In my opinion, ally Bombur is total and utter garbage. I am paying 3 resources for a 0 0 1 3 ally. I would have no problem with paying for that IF the ability was good or at least decent, BUT IT'S NOT! To exhaust Bombur for a -1 to a location is terrible. That is basically the equivalent of 1. Rather than playing this I could play allies such as Súlien, Bofur, or Faramir and get a much better use of my moola. There are soooooooooo many better uses of the card space and resources, and I don't think I have ever included him into one of my decks. The only time I can see this card to be useful is if there is a Underground location in play, then he becomes quite decent. If the ability was something similar to Súlien, but perhaps to a lesser extent or if his ability was to exhaust him to give a location -1 and if it has 0 then discard the location or something like that, then I would love to include the card.
