What do you recommend as my next purchase after the core set? Rather one of the deluxe boxes or a 6 pack of an AP? Thanks for your tipps.

A deluxe expansion is basically 2 AP's with an extra scenario, but they allow you to play with the associated AP's.

The Saga expansions are the best bang for your buck, and only require the base set to play.

So your options are to progress next to the Mirkwood AP's that only require the core, get a deluxe that interests you, or a saga that interests you. Depends on your preference.

I used this: http://talesfromthecards.wordpress.com/new-player-guides/

The buying guide includes a helpful breakdown of the expansions.

It's hard to beat buying in order of release, but others have recommended the two Hobbit Saga boxes.

See also the (very detailed) Buyer's guide (spoilers of course) at Tales from the Cards (an excellent blog on the game) here:

That was a really good list, Patrick. Thanks for sharing. I currently I have Khazad-Dum expansion with The Watcher in the Water and The Long Dark (both APs I bought with very minimal research). While I lucked out by picking Watcher in the Water I wanted to do some research before buying another pack and after reading the buying guide I'll most likely be getting Foundations of Stone.

Happy to share it, I wish it were my site, but I don't have that much skill (or time).
