Not only will I buy the 5.5e books,

I will buy at least THREE COPIES OF THE GREYHAWK SETTING THEY ARE GOING TO RELEASE.

#GREYHAWKIS5.5
Here, here!

My pal is currently DMing our group and I don’t know exactly where he is drawing from! I saw he had Iuz the old from 2e and I can only imagine found some fan made conversions to 5e!

At the stronghold are clerics of tritherion and I am pumped!

He has a digital Greyhawk map and is displaying it on the TV he sunk in his table.

Iuz is super evil…and it’s been super fun.
 



I don’t know. I have a tradition of skipping every other edition effectively. We played 1, 3 and 5. Did not bother with 3.5 and only a few sessions of 4e….though I did buy a ton for it.

I am a maybe or a sometimes. If it’s compatible out of the box I would have a hard time passing up good adventures or old settings I like…

Likely, contingent upon there being some upgrades/minor revisions (rangers, fighters, encounter math, monster creation rules, etc.).

I'll be buying it day 1. This is my hobby, and I follow it through good and ill.
That's interesting. I am curious how long you have been in the hobby. Have you followed any "failed" editions of games? Has your group ever resisted moving on?

Just to be clear: I am NOT setting you up for a gotcha or anything. I am honestly curious.

Thanks for asking. I've been playing since the late 70s and I was 11; 2e got little play because of where I was in life and 4e got almost none because post-3.5 I went to indy games and was thrilled in new and exciting ways (FATE, Reign, Burning Wheel, etc.) Now I keep a hand in both.

It really comes down to whether I find myself in a play group that really wants to play the Anniversary Edition, and how extensive the changes are if they do.

Like if it's just some errata and removing short rest recharge on abilities, I don't need to spend 50 bucks on that!

100% certain that I will be getting them. Most likely both in hard copy and digital. Hopefully, now that wotc own it, there will be some sort of discount for dndbeyond if you first buy the hard copies.

I know I will be buying them just to see the changes, but I don't know if I'll use them. I've liked quite a few of the post-Tasha's changes to races, feats, and monsters, but there's also been some stuff I'm not a fan of.

Nope, I moved on from D&D after decades of playing when 4E came out. I moved on to Pathfinder and eventually got bored with years of playing 3.x just before Pathfinder 2E was announced. I own many other games; D&D isn't the only game in town (pun intended) and don't see myself ever going back. When I want to play D&D I just breakout Castles & Crusades, which isn't that often.

This thread nicely captures the dilemma for WotC:

If it is too little I won't buy it. If it is too much I won't buy it.

I guess it always comes down to hitting the sweet spot. But will they?
I'm not sure they're really all that worried about people essentially rebuying the books, they'll just make the new books the only versions for sale and go from there.
 

I will buy. But as with any edition, I will judge by the three core books If I will buy subsequent books. So far, the last four books has been disappointing for me. This is not going in the direction I like. But if what I see is something I can relate to, I will buy the rest. Otherwise, I will wait for another edition.
