Recently there has been something on my mind that I can't seem to wrap my finger around.
The Ranged keyword allows a character to attack an enemy on the other side of the table.
So if i have Legolas for example, and my partner engages an attack on his combat turn I can choose to exhaust Legolas and add his 3 attack power to whatever my partner already has commited.
However what if I am the first player and must declare attacks first. I can use Legolas to attack across the board, sure. But is my partner at that moment allowed to commit his own attackers too? Or is he prohibited from doing this because it's not his turn?
(I realise you could just keep Legolas ready till it's the other guys turn, but sometimes it might be benificial to kill something as fast as possible. Future enemy effects (or existing ones, I dont know, only own first 3 cycles) that for example skip a players combat phase but not prohibiting their characters to attack for example, or something that would do damage as soon as the other player starts its attack phase)
You have the right line of thinking. If you are the first player and attack another player's enemy with Legolas, that player cannot participate in the attack. Of course, as you said, you could wait with Legolas until the other player declares an attack.
