More stuff is always a good thing. I especially like the new market deck items.
I'm not a huge fan of the Fate cards or whatever they're called. They're not bad, but they seem a little "unnecessary". It's kinda like a second event deck.

Not to say that the base game is otherwise unplayable, but this is a must own expansion because of the new powers/talents (or whatever they're called).

An absolute "must-have" expansion for the base game. Blends so totally and completely it's just perfect. In fact it is so perfect that I'd actually say the base game would feel a little incomplete without it, something I don't normally think about expansions.

This adds a lot to the base game, even if it is only cards. This is definitely worth the purchase, regardless of whether or not you buy the Burning Crusade expansion.

Never played the basic game, added the expansion emidiatly, so I can't really set individual scores on these.
Played it 2.5 times so far, and can't wait for the next set. Recomend even number of players though: Sure, one player can play duble characters, but it doesn't get the same "feel" to it.

Good expansion, however it feels like this was meant to be part of the game itself, not a seperate expansion. I strongly suggest using this expansion always whenever you play WoW:TBG.

I have only played once without this expansion, so take my commentary with a grain of salt. In the main game the powers and talents was very limiting, but with this expansion much of that is added, which makes it more interesting and you can try out different builds. Items added are nice too, as they don’t make the game more complicated, just more varied. I like the blue quests too, but personally I think the rewards are little too small for it being worth the effort to hunt them down. The destiny cards add flavor to the game and I am on the fence if the game really need that.

All in all, I think this expansion is essential for the game and that is solely for new powers and talent. In my opinion building your character is half of the game.

This adds tons of great stuff, the best of which is more cards for the class decks, which makes the already robust character development system even better. There are now multiple feasible builds for all classes, and they all pull their weight if you build them right and get good gear. The addition of quests to kill blue creatures is also nice. It won't swing the game, but at least you don't feel like you don't get ANYTHING. I dunno about all of the items that are added. I can't imagine needing even close to all of them, even with a full six players. If you don't like the base game, this expansion won't be enough to change your mind, but if you already play and like the base game, this is well worth the money. A very solid expansion, and well worth it for the price.

Worthwhile for the blue quests and the destiny cards alone. We've only played with the added skills and talents once, since we don't feel yet that we already exhausted all the possibilities offered by the base game in that regard.

Adds something to the game, but unfortunately not enough. My negative comments on the basic game is that it didn't have an "adventure" and although this adds some, it's still very little.

Not only does this give the blue creatues some purpose, but it adds just a little bit of everything pretty much, and some much needed PvP focused cards. All it has is cards, but it comes with tons of 'em and they do enhance the experince quite nicely.

An expansion that starts to bring out monstruous customization, that will result in a lot more hours of enjoyment from the base game.

Una expansión que empieza a sacar la personalización bestial del juego, que traerá fuera muchas más horas de entretenimiento del juego base.

Bumped into it at Heidelberger at Spiel 2013. As I got the base game in a math trade, might as well pick this up as well.

German version though, would like to have the English one. Hence 'want in trade'. Will trade German version only after getting an English one.

[EDIT] Broke out the German version as it fits perfectly with the English base game. As I also can read German, it is not too much of a disadvantage. As for the addition itself, it really rounds out the base game. Best parts are the blue minor treasures which give your character nice custom options and the additions to the character decks themselves. Give it a 9 as I can't imagine after adding it of playing the base game again without it.

This is a fantastic expansion. In fact, this is how most expansions should work! All it does is add more options for the mechanics that were already put in place. No need to change anything up, since it wasn't broken!

With this expansion I see no reason to go back to strictly playing the basic game. Shadows of War adds more to love on everything from weapons to skills, and even makes the blue creatures no longer an eye sore. All this without adding a lot of time to an already campaign-like game. The added variety makes reaching the highest character levels even more of a hoot. No two games will ever be identical. Add a clever dice mechanic to top it off and you have a yourself a great fantasy combat game.

If you like the base game, this is a no-brainer. If you don't, then you are probably not reading this. I have played a couple of games with this expansion and I cannot see why I would ever play without it again. More of everything, nice twists, personalizes the main bosses even more and blue creatures are now worth something. The only time I could see myself not using the expansion is if I am introducing the game to a new player; that would be way too many powers and talents to deal with for a newbie. If they could only fix the PvP problem in the next expansion now...

The biggest improvement Shadow of War brings are the "Blue" quest cards which give a reward for killing the radom creature spawns on the map, while the rewards are not the best, it's better than than the almost always losing proposition fighting these creatures was before. The Destiny cards are nice, but are similar to the event cards and are yet another thing to track, they do make it so there's a lot more going on, more options is rarely a bad thing.

Very nice expansion -- adds a lot of new options for equipment & training. Also, with the blue quests, leveling is now slightly faster, meaning that the final PvP battle is less likely to happen. (That's a huge plus in my book.)

Only complaint is that if people are slow, the addition of new options will only slow them down even more.

Although seemingly expensive for a bunch of cards and failing to deliver some hopefuls like new faction specific quest cards and bosses, this expansion adds quite a bit of enjoyment to the game. The new powers help balance things out and with the blue quest cards you may actually find yourself fighting blue creatures because you want to. The new destiny cards really add a lot of gameplay elements. Bucketloads of new items and ways to gain experience mean characters become more powerful faster, while added bosses and such maintain challenging gameplay.
