Hi!

I want to buy this expansion, because it is the only one which is available here in Hungary. I have the original Descent only, no expansions yet. If I buy this expansion, will it be too easy for the heroes?

Okay, some things to consider: I do not like the original quests, I always play my own quests. I have printed out a lot of things from the expansions (corrupted terrain, lava, crushing walls, etc...)

Could you help?

I personally love this expansion, feeling it's the best of the three "vanilla" expansions. The Feats do make it easier for the heroes, but if you're playing your own quests anyways then you can always alter those to make them more challenging. The Treachery in ToI helps counter the Feats, though I imagine the Treachery from the other 2 expansions are more useful.

I would say Get It. It's got the biggest board piece in the entire series, rules for being swallowed, a new Invisibility die, and indoor-to-outdoor tiles. It's a great expansion to own.

Hmm... Okay, then. If the heroes are too overpowered, I can always use the Monster Compendium from Boardgamegeek to upgrade my monsters. Thanks!sauron

But I am still waiting for opinions...

I think this expansion just balance out the game in with the introduction of "Feats", but i must admit i've always played with not so good heroes. Maybe, with a balanced group of player, Feats just add too much for the heroesninja
