Jake Williams

Saying Jake Williams is bad because Dr. Milan Christopher exists seems incredibly unfair given the fact that Milan is basically the best Ally in the game. Even taking taboo out of the equation, Jake is still incredibly good with Milan in your deck even before grabbing Charisma. For one thing he can help you draw into your other Seeker allies (Milan, Rook, Horowitz). Revealing and putting locations into play is very easy thanks to Pathfinder and Shortcut. His soak and his AoO prevention is also HUGE for Ursula decks that aim to clean up a scenario quickly. It lets Ursula rely on her 4 more strongly, as she doesn't have to worry about losing as much tempo if the board gets cluttered. This is especially nice in true solo where one of the biggest issues a true solo deck can run into is being bogged down by too many enemies at once. Jake, alongside Ursula's free action, makes that so much less of a concern. Jake is incredibly good, and alongside the run of great Seeker allies Ursula can run makes Calling in Favors a very strong choice in Ursula decks.

Overall probably the worst thing about Ursula downs is her special card. The bonus this cards is nearly non existent because you move and the enemy is still on you at your new location. Maybe helps get enemies closer to allys so they can fight sooner. Jake is a good damage soak though at 3/2. Overall id say hs is easily replaced by dr. Milan. However if you have him out before you get one let him tank a few hits first.

While Milan is definitely better, Jake's abilities are extremely useful for Ursula. The first one allows her to either leave locations with massive monsters without getting clocked or move closer to allies who can kill her enemies, and she should be able to evade after her move. The second ability is consistent card draw if you get him early, which is also strong. I'm not saying he's on par with Zoey's cross or Roland's .38 even, but i think he makes Charisma an even better first upgrade. — SGPrometheus · 255
The 2nd ability is great in Forgotten Age. Every time you explore successfully you get to draw a card, then you auto-move to the newly revealed location and Ursula can use her free investigate. After getting the Expedition Journal, it gets even more powerful: free explore, free card draw, free move, free investigate. And you still have 3 actions left... — Ezhaeu · 28
He is also support for fieldwork, which you can use to pump an evade or bow shot. — Myriad · 713
I think I've kinda slept on Jake Williams a bit. being able to move without an AoO combos pretty well with Fieldwork for enemy management. Even better if you use your free action to investigate with Prophecy Foretold. Still not enough for some situations, of course. Sadly, being a 1-of in a 30+ card deck makes him pretty unreliable. — Zinjanthropus · 93
