Unique. +1 Direct Influence against Elves.

There's also the Sage skill, valuable if you put him in a company byhimself for his survival.
Plus, there's the little added feature of the +1D.I. for elves, though even 3 D.I. isn't that great (though it can controlAnnalena and Arwen, and Anborn, Bard Bowman, Beregond, Bergil, Bifur,Bofur, Damrod, Eowyn, Fili, Gamling the Old, Hama, Nori, Orophin, andWacho with 2, plus Barliman Butterbur, Bombur, Dori, Dwalin, Forlong,Halbarad, Malbung, and Ori with 1). Especially when you consider thedownside of this card, the 8 mind.
But, by my ratings that's only a -6,meaning it costs 6 mind by itself including transferred mind to othercharacters, which isn't that bad (even better controlling an elf, for -5instead). And the 8/9 is well worth it.
I wonder why they choseGlorfindel, though, as the best prowess in a character - there's plenty ofcharacters who I'd say should be higher. He did kill a Balrog, butstill...
Back to the review, there is one more important feature ofGlorfindel. The 3 marshalling pts. It's as many as a lot of the factions,and easier to get out than many of them. Overall, this card is anexcellent character, especially if you play with lots of Elves, andbelongs in almost any deck.
