On the Ares Website it says he can recruit other Ents but it doesnt mention it on the picture of his card or seem to list any Ent components on the box so can he recruit ents or do anything besides what it says on his cards? Becuase otherwise 10$ seems like a lot to pay for a charater that wouldnt even be used most games (since I wouldnt use either of the two other promos I would have to buy)

No. I would parse the web announcement as follows: once recruited, "he is then able to muster the Ents by himself," which I take to mean that he satisfies the requirement of having a Companion in Fangorn in order to play the Ents Awake Event cards.
Should I eat the Cuttlefish and Asparagus or the Vanilla Paste?
Ok thanks, he really does not seem worth 10$ than.
I predict Treebeard and the rise of the Ents (ala CE) will have their moment in the next expansion.
I would agree. They had a cool mechanic in the "Battles of the Third Age" expansion that utilized all the Ent figurines in a pretty interesting way. I would think they would bring that around again for second edition.
