    Article: Pretending to Know Stuff Vol.8 (D&D FUS SR spoilers!)

    Loving the global on that Ring. Can't wait to get my copy!

    Ring global looks so good. The ability is nice, but I hope the common or uncommon have something more useful for me with that same global.

    The Ring looks AWESOME. That would be huge for people that rely on globals requiring specific energy.

    How about that Drizzt? Love that I can still run a non-DnD team and have an answer to swarm on it, or be able to pile up some Adventurers and make them stronger. Great cards so far!

    That Ring is just crazy. Need a Shield, got a Bolt, Convert it to a Shield. OMG, this is not a must card for every deck. Energy Fixing.

    Oh man, the more of this set that gets spoiled the more exited I am to play with it.

    Very potent cards, but as you said we have to wait and see if the common and uncommon versions have the same globals or not. Though, I do like Regenerate, that Ring could be quite useful.

    I don't mind that in the least. Teams are building for more consistency anyway. Fewer Guy teams seem to be winning PDCs and I think that's only because fine tuning those builds for consistency is slightly behind the tuning of some other archetypes. They seem to be an incredible bomb when they go off, but with enough glass cannon characteristics that they need a little more help. This might be it, and if you're goal is t3 or t4 kill, the help provided to your opponent is minimal. But now that there's a bit of a formula for those teams, what comes out to put this in? Or is it worth it? Time to test for WKO!

    Great article. Yes, the Ring is great, but this Epic Beholder just impresses me more the longer I look at it. Like you I was a fan just on the stats. As a semi casual player in an area where single card support is weak, I can't overstate the value of any die that you can get in the starter to assure a good playable number of dice. (I usually buy 2 of every starter now to go ahead and max out the dice in those eight cards.) The more I think about the global, the better it gets (draw 2 prismatic sprays, roll them both as action, have 2 turns worth rather than a wasted action). Add in the active effect like the OP BAC House Of Mystery but more focused and I think it truly resets game possibilities.

    I think I found the perfect card for my build. That ring is Epic!

    Thanks JT. I've got over the "I don't bring Globals because I may help my opponent" syndrome. I still have difficulty judging the "this Global is going to help me more than my opponent" balance. An example of that is when I include Red Dragon for its Action die purchase reduction; in one recent game I used this early on, as was my plan, but then in the final turn of the game my opponent was able to do me the final point of damage they needed by buying an Action die with that Global! I've since tweaked the team to use Thousand Dragon Global to gain the purchase reduction without the player damage. A good modification do you think?

    I'm seriously pumped about FUS as I think many people are; thanks to you and all the team at TRP for the quality articles ahead of release.

    What are the odds that ring global is on the other ring cards? Considering the SR is Ring of Regeneration, the global fits the theme. If the guesses of Ring of Invisibility and Ring of Protection are correct, the global doesn't fit the theme quite as much.
    If the global is on all the Ring cards, then it almost turns it into the Parallax Situation where the SR is not quite as good since the global was the best part of it. Although adding regenerate is not too bad.
