I think it's so, even if you use an interesting mix of dice, you'll never be confused by what your defense dice are. Granted, someone usually still picks up and rolls the wrong dice at least once a game but that helps a bit.

Correct. There's not supposed to be any new cards either from what I recall.

That'd be great, as I'd like to not have to buy it just for a few cards. It did look like it has some other new game mechanic with the larger cards, though? That would be worth it to me

No new univerals cards, certainly new faction-specific ones.

Got it, thanks

Really looking forward to picking up the two new warbands this weekend. Is it possible there will be any other release for season 2? I remember season 1 had the stand-alone card pack focusing on leaders... something like that would be really cool.

We got that at the start of the season with the annoyingly limited "Echoes of Glory" pack it seems.

Those cards are available in Steelheart's Liberators and Garrek's Reavers as well.

Which may be reason to consider that Echoes of Glory is not the equivalent of Leaders. Its purpose was to give Shadespire owners access to Nightvault cards without need of duplicating warband purchases.

IMO, the equivalent would be something like a Wizard pack.

If that were the case, then they would still be available.

They aren't. They were never said to be a limited run product or anything.

IMO, the equivalent would be something like a Wizard pack.

...which would just be a second "Leaders Pack" really.

Kanluwen, I don’t understand your point. What is not available? I still see Echoes and Steelheart’s Champs + Garrek’s Reavers (in single warband box) at my local stores.

Echoes of Glory is no longer available via GW's webstore. Once your local store sells out of it? It's gone, forever.

Steelheart's Champions and Garrek's Reavers are now the only way for anyone who did not get Echoes to obtain the new cards.
Echoes was not stated to be a "limited run product"--which is kind of a Jerk Move.

If you own a thing that is no longer sold, it was a way to get cards without rebuying warbands. Since it’s patching a hole they don’t currently make, why would it sit around forever taking up shelf space at the store and confusing newer players?

Thanks for the clarification Kanluwen. But in that case, that is even a stronger indication that Echoes was not intended to fill the role of Leaders.

I'll probably end up buying it anyways because more Warbands = more variety! But atm I'm more hyped for Online, that's going to consume me when it comes out.

Yeah - I'm really stoked about that, as well . Man it will be sweet to be able to practice online, rather than only on the tabletop! Should make me way less bad, I hope

I've just put away my cards today from the final 2 warbands in my folders & I've noticed I'm missing cards 117 through to 174 in my Nightvault folder. I own every warband except Steelheart's & Garreks as I had those from shadespire. I did buy echoes of glory. Are the missing cards in Steelheart's & Garreks? And are these cards duplicates of the shadespire box set cards?

Yes. Those 58 cards represent the faction-specific cards for Steelheart's and Garrek's. You're not missing anything.

Ugh, I've got it on my to-do list to go through and organize all the cards

Thankfully, I only play a few factions so can ignore a lot of them... but still, it's a heck of a lot of cards to sort through, given that I've done zero organization for two seasons

I've tried to do each set as they're released so I don't have over 1000 cards looking at me & difficult to find what you need. I've got everything sleeved & in 3 9 card Vault X folders in numerical order to make it easy to locate cards. With the warband cards in a 4 card folder.

It was boring to do, but there's satisfaction in it being done

Right behind you.

As a note, Sylvaneth are fricking brutal.

It's one thing to see the cards online, it's a whole other thing entirely to play it on board. I'm in love. These are how the Farstriders should have been.

The Protector's Glaive wielder? Yeah. Try not to mess with him too much.

That's great to hear . It was pretty clear that Thundrik's Profiteers would be strong, but I wasn't sure about the heal-to-inspire mechanic of the Sylvaneth.

Well, good news – Season 3 is on the way and features loads of all new warbands. We got our first look at one member of an all new warband and are none the wiser about the faction from which they hail. Looks cute, though – any guesses?
