Greetings, all! This is my first post in the FFG Forums, and I'm looking forward to many more!
My girlfriend and I are preparing to enter the W:I Hobby by purchasing the Core Set, and I had few questions for the folks on here.
First off, we're both TCG Vets (MtG and Pokemon), and we were wondering what size sleeve would be best for the cards. Will our old MtG sleeves work?
Secondly, what two decks would be best to learn the mechanics of the game in a balanced, well-rounded way? It's already all but established that, at least starting off, she will stick to Order and I to Destruction, but of the four factions, which have the best starting match-ups right out of the box? I've heard Orcs are easy to run, but I'd rather we be evenly matched more than anything. Also, a win on her side might insure she leaves the first play session with a positive experience! I want to get her hooked, not scare her off!
Lastly, is the Core Set enough to keep us happy for some time? We are both eager to dive into deck customization, so will there be enough content to keep us engaged for some time? Would it be best to pick up "Assault" after the Core Set, or "Legends" instead? Will there be any major Neutral cards that we will both want for our decks? I know some of them are limited and I hope none of them are staples that we both want, because we probably won't end up buying a second Core set...
Thanks for your time and I'm looking forward to some phenomenal responses!
