in general, I have been not at all enthused by 5e advanced because it feels like it adds way too much complexity compared to the value those changes bring. However, I've generally felt like 5e monsters need more complexity; too many need an interesting signature ability to make them stand out. So I might end up using the 5e advanced monsters while rejecting the rest of the system.

Yeah, the 5eA MM is the only part I'm getting.

Nice. The but where they lose 2 AC when out of LR is an interesting idea, but it seems a bit small to track and remember; if you have battered down all 3 LRs, 2 AC isn't going to be your problem. If it was 2 AC per LR...

I am just the opposite here. I think A5e adds in a decent amount of complexity, versatility and customization to the game. :)

I won't lie, I got really confused about this preview because I was like "wait the LU books already came out, I have the pdfs!". It took me a second to realize it was the LU monster book and not some new monster book.

That's a lot of information!

The only thing I really dislike is stat blocks being broken up over multiple pages. I like to be able to lay the book open on the page and see everything for the monster (especially one this complex) without having to flip pages.

Oddly enough, if you could almost put the ancient version of the monster onto a two page spread if you cut out the fluff/illustration page. Then again, layout is hard.
