Is anyone aware of an overview of all the reprints for the core and all the expansions ? Am looking in particular to understand with which print/reprint FFG had the "easy mode ring" included.

I have seen the FFG news item on the introduction of the "easy mode" mechanism mid 2013. And I also saw that following this FFG started including this in both new products and reprints.
But I couldn't find a comprehensive overview that clearly shows what actual version/reprint is the first to contain these rings. This information also cannot be found on the "upcoming" tab or the "news" tab on the FFG site.

I have the entire Mirkwood cycle APs with the difficulty indicators. Each box has a reprint date of Dec 2013, so anything reprinted after that should be fine but I don't know about earlier.

I'll second that. I got into this game at the beginning of this year, and with the exception of my core set (which was an older set still in stock on Amazon) everything else I've purchased this year has had the difficulty indicators.

The Core Set itself from the DEC13 print run, also has those (and the errata).

Bye

I also got into the game at the beginning of this year. I have the core set, Mirkwood cycle, Khazad-dum and Dwarrowdelf, Heirs of Numenor and Against the Shadow, and both Hobbit expansions. Everything had the gold rings except HoN and the AtS APs, which I bought from CSI. They all had a Jan 13 date. They did not have the gold rings but did have the errata text.
The errata text is the only thing I really care about as I can use the Easy Mode pdf on FFGs website and remove the extra cards.

Thanks all, so it looks like everything that has a print date of DEC2013 or newer has easy mode rings. That is except for the nightmare packs that don't have any rings at all.

Could you check and share what the dates are on both of your "Hobbit" expansions/boxes ?

Both of my Hobbit Saga Expansion have the easy mode rings. OHaUH says Dec13, OtD says Oct13.

Thanks a lot, I was asking because I can get an OCT13 version of "On the doorstep" so that should be the right one then.
