I own the Grimslinger base game, is the Duel an expansion with new cards?

From my understanding it is the core game without the coop part, so just the duelling cards, not 100% sure though.

It has new characters and different anima art. It's an expansion in that they core game's duel can go up to 8 with Grimslingers: Duels.

Obviously an 8 player duel would be absolutely chaotic, but it can be done .

So, if I have the basic box it's good to also buy duel to have more characters to choose from?

Yep, but, characters are purely cosmetic.

But at the same time is a base game or just an expansion?

I'd like to purchase, but I don't have the core game.

It's fully playable without the core game.

It's fully playable in the sense that you can play an extremely abbreviated version of the game.

Apparently a sizable portion of the cards (26) can't be used in a game of duels? I have no idea what purpose they serve if you have the main game.

They make the game playable up to 8 players.

The cards in question provide a target mechanism in a 8 way duel. A way to pick a given target but it's pretty messy. You essentially get enough cards for two people to duel and 4 character and anima cards.
