Well, here you go, the attachment version of Stand and Fight, your possibity of playing Steward of Gondor without having any Leadership heroes at all or being forced to play a Song of Kings, works really well with the standard Spirit deck/hand milling. Obviously this can also be used to equip powerful tactic items like Citadel Plate in mono-Spirit which opens quite some new possibilities for Spirit.

Another thing to note is that this is a way to play attachments outside of the planning phase. The big distinction between this card and stand and fight is that there are tons of ways to play allies outside of the planning phase. As far as I know this is the only card that allows it for attachments — Jtothemac 476
Yeah, being able to play Forest Snare without having to eat an enemy attack first or recycling Path of Need are amongst the many fun uses of this awesome event. — Alonewolf87 2271
Awesome point about Forest Snare! And Path of Need is my favouritie attachment in the game. — Christian_Medic 1002
You can also cheat attachments into play out of the planning phase using Elrond+Vilya. — eddyvan 33
All great points. Also, this means if you are trying to decide who needs the armor or weapon, you can wait until after the encounter phase to put it on whoever needs it most.ull it — Mad Morderan 135
Other good targets for this event are the guarded attachments. As an example, you can play Reforged after quest resolution, meaning that you won't need to deal with its guardian's threat on that turn. Therefore, if the guardian is a location, and you just explored the current active one, you are going to be able to travel immediatly, at the same moment the attachment has been played. If the guardian is an enemy, you will have the upcoming combat phase for defeating him and release the attachment. You first need to have the attachment in your discard pile, that's true. But running a Noldor or Dwarf deck it shouldn't be an issue. — PablOvi 447
While that's true, Return of the King does the same thing. However, you still have a good point PablOvi — NERD 826
Can you use this card to play a 0 cost attachment as long as it belongs to a sphere of influence? — ahez20 113
yes, that is possible, since the sphere match requirement is revoked by this card and Stand and Fight. The 0 cost problem is for the "you can use resources to pay for..." wording. — LordOfL√≥rien 21

One additional benefit of this card that I've recently discovered is that it allows for strategically playing attachments on locations after the staging step of the quest phase. It can be quite powerful to be able to drop Elf-stone on the active location once you already know that you will be clearing it. Explorer's Almanac is another fun option, as you can choose a second location to clear based on how well you quested. And if you are running an Erestor discard theme (or Dwarf mining discard, etc.), you can store your location attachments in the discard pile until you need them :).

One of my favourite events got an errata in the Revised printing of Ered Mithrin. Now it states "choose an ITEM attachment" - so no more out of sphere Steward of Gondor. This significantly lowers the usuability of this card, but I still think it's awesome in the right deck.
