Sorry if this has already been covered in another thread. I was reading some posts and I am confused on the number of starter decks that will be available. The thread I was reading indicated 4 starter decks would be available at launch - however, the kickstarter says that those above warrior tier get 4 starter decks (your choice).

Wouldn't this imply that more than 4 decks will be available? Wouldn't there need to be a deck for each faction? Or at least a deck for each resource? Has Crypto said anything for sure on this?

Please forgive my newbie-ness . . .

4 $10 Decks will be available for purchase in Set 1

An unknown amout of free starter decks[Choose one when you make account] will be available

Set 2 will likely contain more.

I think I remember hearing the number eight being thrown out there.

could be that it wasn't from anyone important though

They never answered it, most people think it's 4 decks and the dragon deck.

Assume there are four starter decks A B C & D you can pick any 4 but they dont have to be the same so you could go with 2xA and 2xD - i would hope that the decklists for the starter will be available so that anm educate decision could be made.

Time to trot out my response from CZE on this very question:


Hello alpha5099,

We are currently planning on four starters, each centering around one of the featured races.

Thanks.

Maybe I should make that my signature, it'd save time.

Why 4? Aren't there 8 races?

Only 4 races are featured in the first set, there is no Elf, Necrotic, Vennen or Coyotle Starter

Yes, there are 8 races, but only 4 of them are the "focus" of set 1. It is currently assumed that the other 4 will be the "focus" of set 2.

So there confirmed starters are
Orcs, Dwarves, Humans and Shin'hare
Then there is the kickstarter exclusive Dragon starter
And the free starters you get when you create your account.

Maybe they say your choice cause it's just a credit and you could potentially choose 4 of the same one?

That's my only guess other than typo

we know that for sure? i assumed all 8 races will be equally repesented in set 1 (except humans with 3 kingdoms having greater representation)

It is confirmed by CZE.

Set 1 focuses on humans, orcs, dwarves and shin'hares
These are the 4 starter decks available for $10.

They're meant to be different from the FREE starter you get on account creation.

Human and Shinhare are my favourites so far, but was looking forward to elves and necroes too . shame, gotta wait a bit longer then for them ^^

Remember, there will be cards for Elves, Coyotle, Necrotic, and Vennen in Set One, they're not being left out. They're just not getting as much focus and support; we probably won't have the cards to run full tribal themes for those races until Set Two. But you'll still be able to play with their cards, and of course in PvE you'll be able to roll characters of those races.
