Wouldn´t his ability be useless nearly all the time?

This Faramir design is intended to work with cards which ready Gondor characters. Readying a character who is already questing, attacking, or defending will now also buff that character.


Behind Strong Walls
Boromir (tactics, The Dead Marshes)
Brand son of Bain
Common Cause
Cram
Ever Vigilant
Grim Risolve
Miruvor
Path of Need
Prince Imrahil
Renewed Friendship
Spare Hood and Cloak
Unexpected Courage
Westfold Horse-breaker

That is the intention. When it does work it is very powerful, such as with his brother Boromir.

He also has very nice well-rounded stats.

Seems to powerful to me.

I'm hoping that they bring a Faramir hero out in the Against the Shadow adventure cycle.

I don't think all of these are applicable to Faramir's ability. As I read it, you would have to identify a Gondor character as committed to the quest/defend/attack and then use an ability to ready. Some of what you have listed does so, but not all of them.

I think it needs to be retooled to make it a bit less cumbersome. Maybe you could do something like:

All Readied Gondor characters gain +1 W +1 A +1 D.
Response: When a Gondor character exhausts, exhaust Faramir to ready them.

I crossed out Brand and Renewed Friendship since it is probably impossible to use either of those with this Faramir power, and unlikely ever even with new cards.

The others should work.

Also don't forget about...

Steward of Gondor (ie on Leadership Aragorn, Elrohir, or Elladan)
Mutual Accord (especially during Grim Resolve or Path of Need).

I agree that this Faramir needs more, so I went back to my inspiration which was to make a hero which makes some of the strongest cards stronger.

I decided to make the second power of Faramir one that would combo with the first, so I added "Response: After adding one or more resources to a Gondor character's resource pool, ready that character. (Limit once per round per character)".

Here is the updated list of cards that work well with Faramir:

Behind Strong Walls
Boromir (Tactics)
Common Cause
Cram
Errand-rider
Ever Vigilant
Grim Resolve
Horn of Gondor
Miruvor
Parting Gifts
Path of Need
Prince Imrahil
Spare Hood and Cloak
Steward of Gondor
Theodred
Unexpected Courage
Wealth of Gondor
Westfold Horse-breaker
Zigil Miner
