I perused these forums to see if anyone had this question, and saw a lot of Advance vs original, but not this question.

I'm about to acquire Thunderstone: Dragonspire, Wrath of the Elements, and Doomgate Legion. I understand that Dragonspire can be used as a base game. Is it worth it to pick up the original Thunderstone as well, or should I/can I skip it given that I'm getting Dragonspire?

The calls of Advance vs Original aren't relevant to me because I'm already in the midst of acquiring the Original, and hopefully I'll be satisfied with that -- it's all I've played with thus far. But with the original on sale for under $30 shipped, I figure it may be worth picking up, if it's not repetitive.

Thanks all for the input.

It's not repetitive; its heroes, village cards, and monsters are all unique to that set.

Check out the print-and-play (http://www.alderac.com/thunderstone/2012/05/26/download-thun...) to see a full spoiler of all cards in the base set, with the following differences: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/9254957#9254957

No repeats other than the basic cards (torch, food, etc.). Worth it if you find it cheap (variety is one of the best elements of TS), but not necessary.

I would pick it up as like the above posters said there isn't much duplication. Which is currently driving me nuts as I am having difficulty finding a box of Dragonspire at a price I am willing to pay. Damn completionist genes!
