This has properly been asked to death, but what expansion would give the best bang for the buck?(With this I mean added new gameplay vs price)

I ask because I have a limited budget and can properly only afford a single expansion during the upcoming kickstarter.

I think the one that is most commonly hailed as the best is Dragon King, because it gives a very good alternate campaign.

Alternate campaigns (Dragon King, Sunstalker) and 1st year monsters (Gorm) had the most value.

Thanks for the recommendations, so I guess the sunstalker exp would be the one to get for the price conscious consumer then? or strictly gameplay wise are the dragon king worth the xtra price vs the sunstalker?

If only one, Gorm, unless you hate the model.Best/most flexible content for the buck.

I think the best answer is every single one.

Not really. The Sunstalker Campaign is the 2nd best campaign (Dragon King is the best). But the Sunstalker is much, MUCH better to hunt. Better Gear, more unique fight etc. Generally I rate the Sunstalker expansion above the DK one.

It's also worth mentioning that for the price of the Sunstalker/Dragon King you could instead get 2 of the smaller expansions like say The Gorm and the Dung Beetle Knight.


That line about the SS campaign is subjective. I personally prefer Sun to Stars. It's up to you to decide. However the SS is hands down the best quarry when comparing it to DK.

I'd add to the list Dung Beetle Knight for a challenging (not the MOST challenging) late showdown, Flower Knight if you want to make it a bit easier on you.

Or perhaps one of the new ones from this Kickstarter.

I've got Dung Beetle Knight, Gorm and Sunstalker sitting in my cart right now.

What are the chances the Dragon King will become available again?

As a reprint? Very high, as there's plenty of demand. Likely to be the most expensive of the expansions at retail.

Yes. The latest Kickstarter update confirmed it was being reprinted.

What are the chances the Dung Beetle Knight is available during the kickstarter? That is the only remaining original expansion I *must* have.
