Are events only played in phase 3 ? Valiant sacrifice f.ex. says ,,after an ally card leaves play, that cards controller draws 2 cards´´ This sounds like somtehing I would play in the combat phase....Im confused.

Events can be played any time you have an action window (which is most of the time). Allies will often leave play during the quest phase and can sometimes leave during planning, too.

only allies and attachments are restricted to the planning phase.

if you have any questions regarding turn sequence, the table at the end of the rule book is very helpful. Like mentioned above, you almost always have the option of playing an event card.

While people here are correct, I want to point out that not all events can be played any time. There are certain events that say "Quest Action" or "Combat Action" and those events can ONLY be played during those phases. If no such restriction is on the card, then the event can be played during any available action window during any phase.

Additionally, Valiant Sacrifice is a "Response" which means it can be triggered whenever its condition (an ally leaving play) is met and can be played outside of regular action windows.

also another question: To deck build it says the deck must contain 50 cards but the core sets have 30 at least the leadership one, Why in the world didn´t they make the starter sets 50 cards ?

Price is the answer there. To give each core starter set 50 cards they would have had to add another 80 cards to the box.

You can mix spheres. Take 25 spirit cards with 25 leadership cards for exemple.

50 cards is for a tournament deck. Play whatever you want for personal games.
