Evade, hands down.

2 friends and i were playing the first scenario and we discovered the strength of the evade. without smart evading creatures would've beat us down. in one situation, my Seeker pulled a ghoul in one of the rooms. i evaded it and got out of there. because the creature did not have hunter it just stayed there, never to bother us again. do not underestimate that action!

I disagree. Although 'Evade' is a very good action, I think 'Gain a resource' is the best action in the game...

It's highly situational. If you already have lots of resources, then gain a resource isn't good in that situation. If an enemy has Hunter (or there is no enemy), then Evade isn't very useful. I don't think there is any "best action in the game", just actions that are more or less useful in specific situations.

i know, just making conversation. it does exhaust the enemy though, which can save you from the attack.

Clicking for credits is for wage slaves. Savvy rogues know better than that.

As someone who has only played Wendy, yes Evade is the best

Yeah, evade with any number of Wendy's cards is awesome. She is such a delightful little murder machine.

As someone who has only played with Agnes, sometimes it's fun to be able to say:
I can kill you with my brain.

(Ie. I shrivel them to death instead)

The only negative is that some have such high health that it is indeed more of a benefit to delay them so it depends on the monster. (and how the monster has damage apply to it makes a big difference too)
