    Disappointing. I had hoped they would have done something else since they have done Eberron all the time. Congrats to those who love Eberron though. I hope one day they at least open Greyhawk to DMs Guild.

    I think a big part of it is that Eberron was released as a PDF last year for $20 and that the The Descent event spent a lot of time talking up the print-on-demand DM's Guild offerings including the Eberron PDF. So people are wondering...what did we spend money on last year then?

    Another issue is that WotC hasn't listed any details whatsoever and, while Eberron creator Keith Baker was involved in the PDF Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron, there's been no mention if he'll be involved with this as Nathan Stewart presented this as the sole brainchild of himself and Kate Welch at the end of the stream.

    I guess that makes sense.

    I don't know, I'm not such a miserable sack of crap that I feel the need to denigrate an optional supplement just because I'm not a fan, but to each their own I guess.

    (not directing this at you, Staffan.)

    Huh? Where do you get that WotC misleads fans? News to me.

    Okay, if the bolded is actually part of the concern, wouldn't it be better to actually... wait... for information?

    As for the top portion... You paid for the PDF, which this may or may not work better in tandem with.

    They already announced months ago that IF they did an Eberron hardcover release, it would overlap with, but be a different book than "The Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron".

    If they keep true to what was announced earlier (and if I am remembering correctly), the Wayfinder's Guide will be updated with the final version of the Artificer class, and maybe some other stuff to. The new hardcover will probably also include the Artificer, and maybe some other material from Wayfinder's Guide, but will be "different" and include material NOT in the Wayfinder's Guide.

    To be fair, the percentage of the AL-legal book they released last year that is likely to be reused is low, based on the plan for a hardcover Mearls laid out the day the Wayfarer's Guide was released: basically just the parts they released as free UA articles are likely to be reprinted, which is a few pages out of a large document. They are likely to put the Wayfarer's Guide up for print on demand, as the fluff will remain relevant and distinct

    Adding on with my own understanding of things: If I recall correctly when Mearls was explaining the plan on Twitter, the example he provided was that it'd have more emphasis on the Five Kingdoms and a reduced emphasis on Sharn relative to Wayfarer's.

    Id like to see an adventure mixed into the book somewhat like the Ravnica offering. Sounds like it wont have room but Im a fan of the setting/adventure style they have been using.
