GLR is the one of the most controversial cards ever released, with many players either loving or hating her. She's free in a starting fellowship, so you can always use her in a deck, even if it's not an Culture Elven.svg Elven deck. She converts any Culture Elven.svg Elven event into condition or possession discard, which helps with cycling, and with enough events, she can be used to wipe out an opponent's support area. She serves as an easy counter to Grond, Hammer of the Underworld (8R103) , which is otherwise a difficult card to deal with, and she can even get rid of cards like Hides (4R19) , which Culture Dunland.svg Dunland depends on to counter archery. She also has natural synergy with Círdan, The Shipwright (10R8) who benefits from having Culture Elven.svg Elven events in the discard pile.

Despite having an effective twilight cost of 0, and being a powerful source of condition and possession discard, GLR has several weaknesses. First, she can only discard conditions/possessions that were played that turn in the Regroup phase, which may not be enough to prevent the damage of cards like They Stole It (6R46) , Promise Keeping (8R24) or War Club (4U36) . Second, she consumes Culture Elven.svg Elven events to trigger, so if you're being forced to use her all the time, you won't be able to use the events for their intended purpose. Third, depending on your deck size and the number of shadow players you're up against, you may not have enough events to deal with all their support areas, particularly if they playing Besiegers, who are very condition-happy. Fourth, she is extremely weak, to the point that she can't really fight, but is still taking up a slot in your Fellowship (and adding twilight when you move), which leaves you with few fighters unless you go over the 6 companion limit. Fifth, she only really works against support area possessions, and not ones attached to minions (unless you're double-moving). Sixth she's useless against conditionless/possessionless shadows. Finally, she is vulnerable to being assassinated by shadow assignment abilities (listed below) or Terrible as the Dawn (3R103) .
