The Rhovanion Outrider is a straightforward but useful ally that you can summon at a relatively cheap cost to snipe down annoying Hazards or Objectives that conveniently have 3 . This allows you to focus your heroes on more pressing threats. It's 2-cost Leadership and Lore equivalents appear to be the Helpful Squire and East Road Rider, who I find to be more clunky in getting full value out of.
