Dumb Question Time: Build Your Own Dungeon

Post by FattyLumpkin » Fri Jun 23, 2017 9:59 am

Hi...I just want to make sure I understand this. The "Build Your Own Dungeon" allows you to, for the low low price of $10, to pick and mix any of the dungeons you want?

Thanks in advance if you can clarify this for me.

Correct. Though if I am understanding the pledge levels correctly, you really only want to do this if you don't want to get Zaltar's because that would be the Dungeon Level I and then you could mix and match other rooms/add-ons from there without having to pay the $10.

I believe a good many people are simply using it as a place-holder for now. A Garga454 mentions moving up to Zaltar's is the equivalent of going to Dungeon Level 1 which gets you pieces AND shipping without that additional $10 charge.

Point(s) well taken but the reason I'm considering my own "build" is because the first dungeon I'm really interested in is the 6th one, Acid Bath. And I really want Lava Bridge (#13) so I'd add a couple more then an add-on or two, and bingo, I get the ones I want. Is there any reason to avoid this strategy?

Not that I can think of. Will be a lot cheaper and if you are not interested in the earlier stuff then no reason to grab them.

$10 gets your foot in the door. Another $72 or $109 gets you firmly in the door with something to show for it. Of course if your target is the Lava Bridge which is $665/$949 then you're just looking at the fractions.

Overall budget is the driving force. While cost per piece (which is really a bad way to compare) may be lower in the large pledge levels they can easily put one over budget. If you can get a reasonable approximation of what you want through byod and stay in budget... the answer looks pretty obvious to me. So no. No real drawbacks.

I have piles of KS1/2, so looking at something similar to above - Lava Bridge for sure and add-ons galore. Just debating between L1 or L2 for core of alcove style tiles.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. You gave me some confidence that I'm not reading this wrong. I need to cut back from KS4 so the goal is around $1500...but you know :) Below is what I am currently looking at with the knowledge that future add-ons will ruin this plan! I could give up the white marble daises for other add-ons.

Pledge Total: $ 1546

The shipping destination will be within the United States.
Main Pledge

1 X Build Your Own Dungeon ($10)

Encounter Areas and Add-ons

1 X 6. Acid Bath - Expertly Hand Painted ($178)

Here is a pledge planner spreadsheet that could help if you decide to try comparing a couple of possible purchases:

You have to download it to enter data. If you don't have spreadsheet software and do have a google account you can upload it to google drive and open it in google sheets from there.
