Descent 2nd Edition Cheat Sheets

28 posts in this topic

I have created a bunch of documents that I (as OL) and my Heroes utilize to aid us in making decisions such as dice rolls, shop items, agents, lieutenants, and monsters.  We have found that using these documents as references greatly speeds up some of the decision making that occurs regularly when playing the game.  In the past, I had provided some of this stuff to others on request.

 

I just finished updating and streamlining all of the documents.  It includes information from all expansions, all Hero and Monsters collections, and all Lieutenant Packs.  I created a Dropbox and placed all of the files into that Dropbox.  If you are interested, please feel free to take a look and download the files.  If you do so, and find any errors, please let me know so that I can correct them.

 

The files available are as follows:

  1. Descent 2nd Edition Act I Shop Items - this is a word doc which shows all of the Act I shop items available.
  2. Descent 2nd Edition Act II Shop Items - this is a word doc which shows all of the Act II shop items available.
  3. Descent 2nd Edition Card Sleeve Info - this is a word doc which identifies potential options for card sleeves for the card sizes included in D2e.  It also provides URLs to specific manufacturers that sell such sleeves.  It is not intended as an endorsement for any of them.
  4. Descent 2nd Edition Conditions - this a spreadsheet which provides information on all conditions in the game.
  5. Descent 2nd Edition Dice Summary - this is a word doc which shows stats for attack dice, defense dice, and attribute tests.
  6. Descent 2nd Edition Expansion Info - this is a spreadsheet which provides extensive information on all expansions to date
  7. Descent 2nd Edition Lieutenant-Agent-Ally Stats - this is a spreadsheet which shows critical information for all Lieutenants, Agents, and Allies.
  8. Descent 2nd Edition Monsters and Traits - this is a spreadsheet which shows critical information for all monsters and their traits.

Here is a link to the Dropbox:

Nice summary sheets. Some of the monsters are duplicated on the sheet, but that's not really a problem.

 

They aren't actually duplicated ... really.   :)   It is that way on purpose.  You will notice that the duplicates are caused by monsters that exist from the CK (Conversion Kit) and those that came from OO (Oath of the Outcast) and CD (Crown of Destiny).

 

In some cases their stats are actually different.  Some are the exact same.  I debated on just showing both for those that were different, but was afraid that some people (including my dumb self 6 months from now) would ask why I showed some of the monsters from the sets and some not.  :lol:

 

So, I showed them all.  You can see the two letter codes for what sets they come from listed just under the name of the monster, and just before the group limits.

Not sure why you are having a problem.  I just tested it and it worked fine.  I also had a friend at another location, with a completely different ISP test it, and it worked fine.

 

I know that FFG had some issues earlier, perhaps it will work now.  Give it a try, if it doesn't work, and you are interested in seeing the docs, PM me with your e-mail address, and I will e-mail them to you.

All of the documents shown in the OP above have been updated to reflect all of the items included in the latest expansion Manor of Ravens and the latest Lieutenant pack Skarn.

Have you noticed any changes to the heroes?

Yes.

 

EDIT: Just realized that since I haven't had much sleep lately, this wasn't the most informative post I ever made (but with out a doubt the most concise  :P).  Were you just curious, or would you like me to share the specific differences?

I added a new spreadsheet to my dropbox called Descent 2nd Edition Expansion Info.

 

This is a spreadsheet which provides extensive information on all of the expansions, their contents, etc.

I modified the Descent 2nd Edition Expansion Info spreadsheet to show subtotals by expansion in case you aren't as fanatical as I when it comes to collecting everything for a game.   :P

I added a new word doc to my dropbox called Descent Second Edition Card Sleeve Info.  The purpose of the document is to provide information as to the sleeves required for the cards that come in D2e.  In addition, it provides URLs to manufacturers that sell appropriate sleeves.

 

Please note that I am not endorsing any of these, as I have yet to get them myself.  Since I did go through the effort, however, of identifying what was available, I wanted to note it somewhere so that I could find it again when necessary.

Huh. I didn't change that line at all. Must be a compatibility issue between Word and Google. If you download the doc, the text is white. I'll let OP take the file and update his own or not.

I added a new Community Tools & Game Aids link today.

 

It is called Descent 2nd Edition Conditions, and is an Excel spreadsheet which provides extensive detail concerning Conditions.  Basically, it attempts to identify all monsters, lieutenants, agents, allies, heroes, hero abilities, heroic feats, classes, shop items, etc. that can generate conditions.

 

This allows me, as an OL for example, to consider what monsters I may want to deploy based on the conditions they can deal.  Or as a hero, what classes/items I may want to acquire based on the conditions they can deal.

 

This was inspired by a request from Atom4geVampire for the tracking website he is developing.

I will add your line to my spreadsheet.  Note, however, that you have a mistake in yours.  You state that the increased % chance from 1/36 to 4/36 is 11.5%.  It really is 8.3%.
