Am I reading this correctly that the attack gains damage equal to one half the health characteristic on the heroes card? So for Grisban the Thirsty each attack using the card would gain +7 damage. If so that seems overpowering especially in Act I and interlude.

Nay, the card says to gain 1 damage for every damage on your hero sheet. That is, it is more powerful the closer the Berserker is to death (hence the name). So, at the beginning of the encounter, a perfectly healthy berserker would gain nothing from the skill.

Right idea, but it's one damage for every two damage tokens on the Hero Sheet, not for every damage.

What this means is Grisban could potentially put out an attack with +6 damage, if he were very near death.

In other words make sure he is dead.

Just give him a good armor, and Sir Valadir is perfect for this ability.
