Sorry for the weird question/analysis but bear with me.
I found great value in Signs of Faith, Winds of Magic and Omens of war for these reasons alone:
SoF: Disease rules
WoM: Corruption Rules
Omens: Severe Injuries
It seems all of teh 'core' rules features of the above sets could easily be incorporated in 'almost' every game session or potentially every game session. Meaning, that 9 times out of 10 in a give session 1 or all of teh core rules listed above would most likely see some game time. So due to my cash strapped mentality--i found value in getting these expansion sets because those core rules were worth teh price of admission alone since they were used often in any game session.
However, when i look at Lure of Power the core rule set that is included is Shame. For those that have bought it, are the Shame rules worth the price of admission? Are they used as often as Disease, Corruption or Injuries? Are they as good? What is teh compelling factor to Purchase LoP from of 'core' rules set addition. Yes, each pack has additional comps (monsters, Careers, talents etc) but if I only would only buy for the core rule piece is LoP worth it?
Thanks any help would be appreciated. I am debating the purchase of LoP (to conclude the god packs) or Black Fire Pass (black fire pass seems situational as well BTW hence i haven't purchased yet).
