Thank you very much for the indepth response Arcanus.  I really like how responsive the developers of this game have been thus far.  

As far as the options you presented go, it's a tough one, like Klaxas said, they are all good.  I think the 2nd Core Spell Tome is probably the most versitle and cost effective method for everyone, but I really like the idea of mage specific packs.  

My vote would be to go with the 2nd Core Spell Tome.  That way with two purchases beyond the base set you get duplicate copies of all spells in the game plus extras.  

By the way, I'm not sure why this is, but maybe you can answer this as well Arcanus.  I bought the Core Spell Tome from my local game store, but it cost $30.  I asked him why it cost so much, when it's only $20 online, and he said that he paid $20 from the distributor himself.  At first I thought it was just an online only product and the distributors were paying full price, but when I read your comment about your plan to "sell through the retailer" I was a bit confused.  Do you have any insight on why there is such a cost difference for that product between online sales and my local game store?

Well, I'm sure one will come up sooner rather than later.  Even a nice visual spoiler would be cool so that I can look at cards to plan spell books when I'm not at home.  Hell, even an all text spoiler would be sufficient  :)

Thanks for the replies.  Yeah, I had forgotten about the "one per zone" rule, but remember it now that it has been brought up.  

@Shadow, have you had problems with your opponent destroying your Poison Gas Cloud quickly?  With the ability to take whatever you need on any given turn it seems like grabbing any Ethereal spell would kill this almost instantly due to its low life.  Even the Wizard's innate ranged strike could probably kill it in one shot.  It seems to me like the most you would probably get out of the spell is a single turn of damage (maybe two) before it got taken out.

As I said, I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like it just wouldn't last long before it gets taken out.

General Questions / Poison Gas Cloud
« on: September 27, 2012, 06:59:24 PM »
Do multiple Poison Gas Clouds in the same zone stack?  I assume they would, but just checking.  

Also, does anyone have experience with these?  It seems like they would be very easy to destroy with their low life since Ethereal attacks are very easy to come by.  I'm not sure they are worth it at 8 mana, but I'll have to see them in play to know for sure.

Spellbook Design and Construction / Online spell book builder?
« on: September 27, 2012, 02:00:22 PM »
Is there a visual spoiler of the spells online somewhere?  Or, better yet, an online spell book builder?  I'd love to be able to tinker around with spell book design while I'm away from the actual cards.

If there isn't any resource like this right now (either an "official" one or a fan made one), are there any plans to make one?

Yeah, I'm sure there is a lot they are still trying to nail down, I'm just hoping they might shed a little light for me.  And yes, I really want back ups to things like Hellfire Lash, because when your opponent knows you only own one, it is an easy choice as something to Dissolve because they know you can't get it back.  Having a back up on good items like that seems like a must have to me.  Plus, there are several non-legendary, non-epic creatures that appear only once in the core set and not at all in the core spell tome that I want more of (more Gorgon Archers please!).  

I'm thinking that things like Hellfire Lash won't make another appearance in expansions that involve new mages, since items like that are mage specific and wouldn't make sense.  But maybe you'll get extra copies in the multi-player expansion?  Or in a future core spell tome?  

These are the questions that are preventing me from buying more product.  I will probably just hold off until they reveal what their plans are.

General Discussion / Looking for a little disclosure

Hey all, I had some questions I was hoping someone "in the know" could help me out with.  I have purchased the base set and a core spell tome so far and I'm really enjoying the game.  However, my friend and I have been talking about the value of purchasing another base set for the extra cards and components (we each own one already, but we are talking about buying a second one for each of us).  

My question is, can we please get some idea of which cards that are in the base set are going to be reprinted in coming expansions and how many copies will be produced?  I've seen some of the designers say they are going to reprint some of the cards in future expansions so that players can get more copies, and that's great, but without having any idea of which cards, in what number and when they will be released, it's creating uncertainty in regards to our purchasing product.  I'm sure other people are having this same hesitation.

Should I buy a second base set?  Will this be the only way to get multiple copies of things like Hellfire Lash or the Beastmaster's Staff or the Gorgon Archer or those other mage specific cards that there are only one of in the base set?  Does a second core spell tome make sense to buy, or will a lot of those cards end up appearing in other expansions?  If the designers would give us a little insight on this, they could probably give themselves a little boost in sales since we can purchase with confidence.  Right now, there's too much uncertainty, and no one wants to waste money on stuff they will end up not needing.  

Hopefully someone can shed a little light on this so that us crazy completionist types can figure out what exactly we need to buy to have the stuff we want.

Well, proxies are a no go for me, I'm a stickler like that :)  Thank you though!

General Discussion / Release schedule for future expansions?
« on: September 21, 2012, 08:50:58 AM »
I know the game is just coming out today, but I was wondering if there has been any sort of release schedule posted anywhere for the planned expansions.  I'm sure the base game is going to provide lots of play time, but I'm curious at how fast they plan on releasing the first expansion and how long it will be  inbetween further expansions.  I think it'd be nice if they were planning on releasing something every couple of months, instead of say, every six months.

Thank you for the reply, that gives me hope that there is a decent amount of room in the base set to create unique decks.  I'm excited about this game and can't wait to pick my copy up tonight!

General Discussion / A question about the level of variability
« on: September 20, 2012, 09:30:40 AM »
I was wondering what the level of variability is in this game when it comes to constructing a spell book.  Obviously there are quite a few different spells, but I was curious if most of the cards you will put in your spell book are "givens", as in you will take these spells every time regardless of opponent.  Actually, my question can be broken down into two parts:

1. How many spells are there that will be "staples" in all spell books regardless of opponent or which mage you are playing?  You know what I mean, spells that are so good or useful that playing without them would be a disservice to yourself and your ability to play competitively.

2.  How much variability do people think there will be when comparing spell books?  For instance, if I were to put together a spell book for a Warlock and compare it to another players spell book for his/her Warlock, will they mostly be the same with only a handful of cards being different, or is there potential for highly varied spells between the two?  

Basically I'm wondering how much actual deck building ability the game will have from the get go, or if the spell books mostly "build themselves" at this point.  Obviously there are expansions coming that will expand on the deck building aspect of the game, but obviously that is going to take some time so I'm curious where the game will stand on these issues at launch.

Thanks for any replies.

P.S.  Can't wait to get the game tomorrow!

Yeah, I was afraid it was going to be multiple core sets.  That sucks.  I want the ability to make any spell book I can legally make depending on what I feel like doing.  I don't like the idea of feeling like I can't include the maximum number of copies of a certain spell that I like simply because it's only in the core set.  

I was hoping that the core spell tomes would basically be another copy of the same spells from the base game, but I guess not.  

It seems like this game is a bit expensive if you want to have full access to your spell book building options.

For those of you who have purchased the game already, how much product do you need to buy in order to maximize your ability to customize your spell book?  Just one core set and one of the core spell tome boxes?  Or do you need more than one core spell tome?

Thanks for any responses.
