What do think about Herald in this expansion? Do you like it or not? Does he is really destroys the expansions theme because of his curse for obtain Exhibit items? Does the expansion really better without him?

I believe that that is the generally held opinion.

It discourages interacting with the parts from the expansion, so yes, it is pretty bad. But even outside of that I think theat the DP herald is one of the more uninteresting ones mechanically speaking.

I think that Herald have a good ability with unique items, because you will be punished for trying to obtain Elder Sign from shop.

Near one month ago i had bought the CotDP expansion an have some plays. Now, my opinion about Dark Pharaon Herald - he is not bad at all (but weak, except of combo with Nyarl) and he is necessary with CotDP Exhibit items. Without him the investigators can do Exhibit encounters and get tons of Exhibit items without penalty. Since Exhibit items is good near as Unique items the game became too easy. Of course we have some brutal OW cards and Rumors cards, but overall, in my opinion the CotDP expansion without Herald makes the game even more easy than just base game, because of Exhibit encounters where you can gain ONLY exhibit items each turn (one for overall investigators turn, of course) and you can do it during whole game.
