Hi all, Please forgive the noob question.  Been searching around and I can't seem to get it.  What is the difference between an expansion and an adventure pack? I just purchased the main game, which came with the Kingdom of Sky expansion.  I would like to get all of the expansions so that I can be caught up with everyone.  When looking around at what they were I also noticed something called an adventure pack.  Now I am confused. Can someone tell me what all I need to buy still to be caught up? Thank you!

<p>Go out and buy Echoes of Faydwer. I believe it comes packed in with the Desert of Flame expansion pack as well. That'll get you caught up for all the expansions.</p><p>Adventure packs are these content add-ons that were released between expansion packs. they cost about 7 bucks to buy, and they're just a few new zones each with it's own self-contained theme. I recommend Fallen Dynasty for sure, but the other two arn't really worth it.</p>

There are expansion packs and adventure packs. Expansion packs are large additions to the game that are usually 20+ zones in size. These often include level increases and new features. Adventure packs are self contained story lines that might have ten or so new zones that are usually small to medium size. There are only three adventure packs at the moment and I believe they've stated that they are not working on any more at the moment. There have also been three expansions with a fourth currently in development. Adventure packs are all under $10 IIRC, while expansion packs are generally over $30 (the specifics vary depending on where and when you buy it). <b>Expansions:</b> Desert of Flames Kingdom of Sky Echoes of Faydwer <b>Adventure Packs:</b> Bloodline Chronicles Splitpaw Saga Fallen Dynasty If you purchase the retail version of Echoes of Faydwer it includes all previous expansion packs and the base game itself. This does <b>not</b> apply to the digital download version, only the retail version.

You have to be level 50 as either an Adventurer or a Tradeskiller to do even the fun little run around quests and see the depths of true Gnomish love</p><p>Splitpaw with it's scaling instances starting at level 20 would seem the much better AP to purchase if one was going to purchase them. </p><p>Bloodlines starts around level 35 or so and is a lot of heroic group stuff. Great if you have a core of friends to go there with you, but if you play more solo there isn't a very compelling reason to have it . </p>

I didn't find them <i>too</i> boring, and I could use Splitpaw pretty quickly in life.
