OK, I remember those...I just did not recall the piece assortment I see on the DwF website.
Thanks!

I believe these were in the KS itself - I see them announced in update #9.

All of the "fancy" dungeon corridor packs were in Caverns (KS2).
OMG, I haven't painted them yet (scared to but now Lady Sabelle may have convinced me its doable) and probably just missed 'em....

Thank you, Pacarat.

I wasn't there but I believe the dungeon passages were part of the caverns ks. Reviewing the ks2 campaign page I see the narrow dungeon passage add-on. The others must have been added in the pledge manager. All of the ks2 sets have "GT5-xxx" sku numbers. Until a "few" months ago (it might have been during or just after ks3) the dungeon passage sets were on the cavern page in the store.

Dungeon Passage Pack #3 is absolutely necessary for passageway intersections.

If you don't mind triangular gaps on the outside of the seams between pieces, DPP#2 is the only other set you need.

If you do mind those gaps, DPP#4 is the essential companion to DPP#3.

DPP#1 becomes necessary when you want hallways longer than 4"/20', or if you only intend to connect rooms with straight hallways.

So I'd start with one DPP#3, test bevel-to-bevel, flat-to-flat, and flat-to-bevel matches with the pieces included, then pick up DPP#2or4, and expand from there.
Favorite Pieces: Chasms, 45 Degree Passages, River & Lava Banks, Ledges, Large Curved Walls, Elevation Arch

I have struggled with this exact same question. Right now I have 3 sets of set 1, 3 sets of set 3, and one each of set 2 and 4.

Advice on usefulness of certain dungeon packs

Post by WhiskeyandPeaches » Mon Apr 11, 2016 11:47 pm

I was late to the DF party and jumped on big time with KS3. I've slowly be filling out my cavern and dungeon sets, and I'm only now adding some of the dungeon passage packs (#1-4). I intend to buy them all eventually, but I'm scrimping to maximize my KS4 pledge.

If you had to prioritize for the short term, are there any more or less useful packs than others? What about the curved and diagonal dungeon packs?

Thanks in advance!
