It seems that it doesn't have high wounds, and you can pay cheap investigation to showdown it right away. At that point, with 5 & 5 its not going to be able to sustain much damage. It also heals normally, which being a werewolf you would think it would have a limited amount of invulnerability, something like: "only a 6 will wound it, or heal +1 wound for each level along the darkness track"

Thoughts?

The werewolf hits on a 4-6 and strikes first, making it fairly likely that it can strike down most of the heroes before they can even damage it. That being said, it isn't the toughest villain, but if the right mystery cards (growing power, ancient evil) come up early, the werewolf can be very dangerous.

If magistrate kroft is evil, dealing with the werewolf can be especially difficult to kill in a showdown as well.

Werewolf is a joke but mostly because of the crazy power of the Silver Shot, 6s do 3 hits each!!! Even against the other Villains, SS is very good but it just (literally) blows the WW to pieces. As long as you have a gun and SS, combat should end in an investigator win on the first combat round. Unless you just can't roll 6s to save your life, but when rolling 10 or 15 dice (at least), those 6s tend to come up.

We just played against the werewolf last night, and although we won, it took us a long time to be comfortable with a showdown because we kept having to remove rats from the board. It also helped that we had Anne Marie completely buffed with books, and she also acquired bombs. That plus the silver shot, and we beat him in a round and a half (4 investigators).
