Which Small Expansion?

Recommended Posts

I've had Descent and the Shadows of Nerekhall expansion for a while.  I'm going to be picking up Lair of the Wyrm and Labyrinth of Ruin from CSI with their 10% off Labor Day sale.  This will give me all the required content to play all the Road to Legend campaigns.  To hit free shipping I figured I'd pickup one more of the small box expansions to also have some additional monsters and heroes.  Which of the remaining is the best of the four:

Mists of Bilehall

The Chains That Rust

Manor of Ravens

The Trollfens

I'm also open to a Hero and Monster box instead if there is one that stands out above these expansions.

Also, I plan to play Road to Legends with a friend.  I was thinking we'd each play two heroes.  Does that make it longer or more difficult than just playing one hero each.

Thanks!

Mists of Bilehall and The Chains that Rust should be bought as a pair really, so if you only want to pick up one I would discount them.

Trollfens and Manor of Ravens both add some fun map tiles and decent monsters. Trollfens has secret rooms which you already got from Lair of the Wyrm, Manor of Ravens has the Marshal class which is no real use in Road to Legend...

Between the two of those I would probably go for Manor of Ravens first, because it has some excellent weapons (Staff of Greyhaven, Winged Blade!), but they're both great.

Typically the small box expansions add way more stuff to RtL than the Hero and Monster packs, I would get all of them first.

It doesn't make it more difficult, but it will definitely make it much longer - you have twice as many monsters to kill playing with 4 heroes :D

I would still recommend playing 2 heroes each, it's much more fun with the full monster groups :)
