Not a bad weapon for Lore! If you have card draw (which you should if you are running any decent deck ;) ), then you can get definite use out of this baby. Reminds me of Protector of Lórien from the Core Set, except it's damage instead of attack boosts. So less effective against certain enemies (looking at you Uruk-Hai!), but also good against enemies with high shields, as long as they're not ITPCE. Also, the hero gains ranged, which is nice.

Can definitely see this in an Erestor deck, and maybe Beravor of Ori could get some use out of it. Not an over-powered weapon, but hey, if you want those, go play tactics!

My big problem with the design of this card is that it costs 2. Compared to Protector of Lorien, which only costs 1, it's less versatile and is more restricted in playability. This card would have been decent at cost of 1, and excellent at cost 0 (like the Elven Spear, for example). — kjeld 268
