A "for variety" expansion, hence same rating as base game. Requires a blue/green focus to cancel the numerous treachery cards that inflict damage to characters, plus healers for coping when damage does get through as well as to win the game by healing the new eagle character that takes 2 damage each turn. You still need a bit of 'ranged' biff (Hi Legolas) and some questing, so it's a need everything adventure. You need specific healing cards to win out of both the encounter deck and your own deck, and you're on a turn-based clock, so playing solo means you won't see most of either deck and you're going to need a bit of luck no matter how focussed your deck is. It's a pretty easy 3 player playing red, blue, green though.

Hero: I haven't built a deck that made explicit use of Prince Imrahil's Response ability, but his stats are also quite good.
Player cards: Some of the player cards are pretty situational, but Ancient Mathom often finds its way into my decks. Haldir is one of my favorite cards to date, although I don't get to use him as often as I would like.
Quest/Encounter deck: I'm not really sold on the quest. The idea is interesting, but it feels like the players can do little to mitigate bad luck of the draw (compared to the options in other quests). If you don't get the cards needed in the second step, you're screwed.

Quite different from the previous quests, requiring more usage of the Tactics sphere than quests before. Also, starting threat felt like a lesser issue.

Definitely, my favorite pack in this quest line. The Willyador mechanic is super fun, and the introduction of additional eagles and Radagast make for some great new combos and deck-building strategies. Definitely a must play for anyone who owns the core-set.

Wow. What a multi-dimensional and varied scenario.

I love it when you have to take care about the different aspects of the adventure.
Not knowing how the scenario will unfold (i.e. more/less (specific kind of) enemies, more/less wounds from treacheries, finding/not finding Athelas herbs etc.) is a big plus for me too. This way each play can be different.

After more plays: I'm not so thrilled as at first. It seems that in every deck you need Lore (and 'Lore of Imladris'). That narrows down your options. And the pressure of wounds mounting on Wilyador overshadows the variety of other difficulties.

This is a great expansion. I'll give it a score of 8.5 because although it includes only 1 hero and 27 player cards (i.e. which sounds like a lot but that is 3 copies of 2 cards from each sphere and 1 grey/neutral card), it does include Radagast which is a fantastic addition to gameplay (i.e. he produces resources and summons animals!).

I like about the "Journey to Rhosgobel" scenario that for the first time the Threat level is totally irrelevant. That is an excellent design. I am also playing cards now that I had deemed "unplayable" before and many "staple" cards are out of my deck.
My deck is built around Frodo/Beravor/Denethor with Song of Kings just for Steward of Gondor and Sneak Attack. Escort from Edoras being a key card in this scenario where speed is more important than threat management (yes, I threw out all my Galadhrim's Greetings).

Not really that easy. You have to build for this one. You need either Asfaloth or some Northern Trackers to get Rhosgobel out of the staging area early. Then you can heal the eagle while still sifting through the deck to find the athelas.
