Hi guys im really thinking buying core set only because of rtl .. Im purely solo player so.. yeah... Now if i may ask can someone who finished tutorial and that 1 campaign and delve explain for how many hours it ll take those campaigns?

I know if i buy expansions i ll get more heroes , monsters and 1 side q per expansion but how many missions are in those campaigns...

And lastly i would feel stupid not to play original campaigns so is that RAV system the best way to replace overlod?

Thanks for answers

In the full lenght campaign "Kindred Fire" you play 6 main quests and about the same number of side quests. With 4 heroes it took us about 24 hours to complete.
The tutorial campaign is way shorter, there's an intro quest, 2 side quests and 1 main quest for about 4-5 hours of content.
Then there's the paid DLC "The Delve" that's a semi-randomized sequence of 6 encounters. I had the chance to play it only once and lost halfway through after about 2 and half hours, so I'd say that each run takes about 3-5 hours. Can't wait to give it another try

If I take a group of characters through the main campaign, can I use the same leveled up characters in subsequent expansions or am I supposed to start over with fresh ones?

(Road to Legend): The app assumes you start anew each time you start a new campaign.

(Physical game): Each campaign of Descent is a fresh start and each of the full campaigns has a fair number of quests you will not play on your first run so there is some replayability even if you run through the same campaign a few times.

I have played the game ( and all expansions) with "RedJak's automated overlord" and it's awesome! You can download it in the files section.
I haven't tried the app yet, but I'm sure you'll have a great time with the game.
It's definitely one of the best games I've played. Mind you, I think the app will play differently than just the base game.
