I voted no, but leaned towards "other" because there's a possibility that I'd buy it if the changes are significant enough to buy the separate monster book. But it's probably "no".

Voted "Separate."
Not interested in the gift box, I'll likely just get the monster book later on.
I've got Tasha's and Xan's, but neither Volo's nor Mord's, so the MotM alone is exactly what i need.
 

I voted no, as I already own the books they originally appeared, but hope WOTC doesnt take any potential sales slump to mean people aren't interested in a NEW monster book or one focused on just monsters. I'd much prefer a MM 2 over the mixed content books we've seen.
 


With this group, I assume most of us fall into two categories:

1. Already have Volo's and Mord's, so the gift set is a waste.
2. Already decided not buy Volo's or Mord's because it's not the kind of content we want, so the gift set is a waste.

It's actually interesting how many would/will buy the book separately. For me I didn't want Volo's r Mord's because I don't want to buy lore (I can do that myself) but this book has a lot of player options which is useful to me as a player and dm. But only to a point - I picked up Tasha's only this month and so haven't used any of that, and my dm's are really open to homebrew and UA races so I don't need to buy anything to access more races.

I mean, the book in the gift set is a MM2, very specifically.

I may buy the individual book in May just to have to consolidated the number of books I reference, but it's a low priority.

Voted May. I could use the other two in the gift set... but not at the full cover price for all three. (I'd get it for like $105, but then feel guilty for not supporting my LGS). For now I'll borrow the other two from my son.
 

Yep, or even worse.

Have Xanathars, Volos, and MtoF AND actively dont want Tasha's.

So the Gift Set would be extremely wasteful, and I dont like the changes at all anyway.
I suppose I left out the possibility of owning one and not wanting the other...

Gift sets aren't really for us to buy, though: they're aimed at either new players who want to catch up, so to speak, and friends/loved ones of players who don't know what else to get you. Although missing the winter holiday season makes that less of a market.
 

Absolutely no chance with the Gift set.

Digital would be next but with Beyond we don't even know what it'll contain so that's out for now.

And honestly I don't have any reviews of how good the changes to the monsters are. I expect I might pick it up eventually, but not May.

From what we've seen so far on the preview taken from twitter by @darjr , the changes are pretty minimal. Even with all that talk about the races and their niche and archetypes and yadayada, the changes to playable races are pretty basic: add fey ancestry to gobs, trance works different, everybody gets darkvision for the sake of it, etc :p

I'll wait for the 2024 release myself.

The monster changes are pretty notable.
