Have we seen the last of the Hero and Monster Sets? Or will they finish off the unreleased heroes with some new monsters?

Any major monster types that are under represented in Descent at this point? (gelatinous cube/blob type?)

Where? I haven't seen anything official from Fantasy Flight beyond the 9.

I haven't either.

I think if they have sold for FF then they would continue on.

Question: Have we had Skeleton Archers yet?

All 1E monsters are accounted for. Twelve 1E heroes are not yet available for Descent 2E.

My guess is either they have a different plan for these heroes, or it takes longer to develop all-new groups of monsters for hero and monster packs than it does to slightly rework old ones.

As long as we're welcoming speculation, I suspect the other shoe to drop and the next expansions will be an "All Heroes" set split into two parts like Mists and Chains were.

Also a possibility. If they go that route maybe the first part would have a new Mage class and the second a new Healer class, or vice versa.

We are balanced on all the classes, though, correct? Each of them have six I believe?

One of the reasons I wasn't so jazzed about the last 2 expansions was the lack of new classes.

Mage and healer are down 1 class compared to warrior and scout.

I think they only originally planned 9 if you look at the part numbers.


The Hero and Monsters numbers are DJ26-DJ34 despite the long release schedule

Skarn is DJ35
Co-op ones are uDJ-36, 37, 38
Heirs of Blood Campaign Book is DJ39
Mists of Bilehall is DJ40
More Lt. are DJ41 - DJ43
Chains that Rust is DJ44

I REALLY hope they at least release the other 12 heroes from the conversion kit since the RtL app won't support the kit.

I asked customer service about it in June. Here was the reply:

That would feel sorta weird. Just having monsters for heroes to fight in a new campaign seems more natural than only having brand new heroes fighting old stuff.

I'm not even sure why.

I've noticed that the newest hero packs have quite significantly changed the heroes that are in them though. Nanok and Steelhorns are much reduced in power while One Fist is much stronger.
I guess the delay is more about further balancing the remaining characters. While I think some are okay (Mad Carthos for example) Laughin Buldar, Aurim and others have got very powerful abilities.
