I assume there will be a minimum of 4 because if it just come with 2 investigator then the question is what's the point of getting 2 core set to accommodate 4 players.

However, I am curious whether in 1 core set will there be more than 4 investigators. If yes, then this will be a good purchase as players can experiment with different pairings and discover the dynamics between them.

I like elephants. I like how they swing through trees.

I'm pretty sure the Core Set comes with 5 investigators.

Five investigators, one from each "class" which basically means "faction".

I disagree. There are levels and such. It's much more of an RPG thing than a LCG faction thing.

Your class limits what cards you can include in your deck, that seems similar to factions in other LCGs.

I don't think investigators are limited by their class so much as each individual is limited based on their deck limits.

Roland has "Guardian" as his primary class, but...

"The rest of your deck is made up of cards that belong to the different classes available to your character. Again, using Roland as our example, he can use cards that belong to either the Guardian or Seeker classes, as well as Neutral cards. Altogether, there are five different classes in Arkham LCG, one corresponding primarily to each of the five different investigators in the Core Set, and each encourages a remarkably different approach to your investigations"

While each might be "primarily" a class, it appears you can use cards from at least two classes plus neutral when constructing your deck.

If it takes experience to upgrade above level 0 cards, then when constructing decks it doesn't even matter which class is primary since all level 0 cards of either class can be used.

I think Seeker or Mystic. Agnes is whichever Daisy isn't.

Skids is the Rogue.

Wendy is the Survivor.

Daisy has to be the seeker, as librarian fits the investigation centered role. And Agnes is then the Mystic, since she is a spell caster.

Agnes is the mystic, she is pictured as purple and you can make out her name in the picture.

Ok so what are their secondary classes?

Roland - Gaurdian / Seeker
Wendy - Survival / ??? (rogue?)
Agnes - Mystic / ??? (survival?)
Daisy - Seeker / ??? (mystic?)
Skids - Rogue / ??? (gaurdian?)

I might have Agnes and Skids switched? I think it's probably safe to say that Daisy has mystic though considering her Arkham, Eldritch, and Elder Sign: Omens incarnations all have to do with spells.
