Hey everyone. I was looking to buy 2 expansions when they restock the kingdom death shop but ive done tons of research and i cant find a good answer to which 2 expansions are good for someone starting off with nothing but the base game thus far that have a good synergy together or are just plain fun. Thanks!

I would go for Gorm to have another early game Quarry with good gear besides the Lion. After that pick any 1 Expansion with an alternate campaign: (Flower Knight), Dragon King - would be my choice, Sunstalker

This matches everything that I have read...and why most of them are in my KS order.

What Simon said is great advice. Especially the Gorm patches up some of the lacking gear in the core game.

Having access to an alternate campaign is also nice. So Dragon King or Sunstalker would be my recommendation with the note that the gear from the Sunstalker as a general quarry is far superior.

I think you can´t be wrong with any of the expansions (maybe with the exception of the Lonely Tree).
I only had the chance to try the Lion God and Slenderman.
Both are expansions that people only recommend if you have everything else.
You know what, both of them are great and provide useful gear for the core game.
The Lion God even had the most exciting fight of all the monsters I tried.
That said, if most of the people recommend Gorm, Dragon King, Sunstalker, Flower Knight and Dung Beetle Knight, there has to be a reason for it.
If I had the choice, I would go for the Sunstalker instead of the Dragon King, because people say that he has better gear and a better fight (Dragon King has the better campaign).
He is also cheaper than the Dragon King, which means that you could also buy the Dung Beetle Knight for the same amount of money.

I find the DK quarry showdown to be harder than the SS quarry showdown.
Anyway, they are at least comparable. DK showdown is lots of fun, but SS showdown is fun too, so it's just a matter of what you like (I prefer DK quarry myself... too bad the gear is sub-optimal).

Fen observed multiple times that, ironically, DK quarry gear is the best addition to a Sunstalker campaign

Only if you don´t hunt Sunstalkers in the Sunstalker campaign.

Any particular reason you are limiting yourself to 2 expansions rather than a price range? The offerings do vary a bit (with more $$$ typically equating to more content).

Can't disagree with anything posted so far, though I have only read about the expansions since I was a 1.5 KS backer.

One thing to factor in is just how much you'll be seeing a particular expansion's contents. Something that only appears late-game or conditionally won't provide as much bang as something that appears early and/or regularly, like the Gorm.

And inversely SS is great in a Dragon King Campaign!

The expansions I think you would get the most benefit from are:

Gorm

and then one of the following:

Slenderman, Sunstalker, Dung Beetle Knight or Dragon King.

The later game really runs out of options when you just have core game only, you end up grinding lots and lots of antelopes and lions. SS/DBK/DK give you that extra late game quarry and increase the range of gear you can make.

Slenderman is a special case because he removes the King's Man by replacing it - but he's a more interesting nemesis monster with craftable gear. He doesn't make the game easier, just adds more options.

No particular reason. I looked at the prices and i got some cash for christmas im willing to spend and i think 2 expansions would be a good amount wothout overwhelming myself!

Thanks everyone for your opinions! At this point ill mpst likely get gorm just not sure on the second one yet

I think Manuhunter + Gorm + Core make for a very good campaign.
I recommend it a lot.
Manhunter brings a little extra pressure but gives great rewards.

For small expansions, I quite like the Manhunter, Slenderman, Flower Knight (despite lack of balance). For larger expansions, the Dragon campaign is probably my favorite thing in KD.
