VIP

VIPs receive Aasimar so they have been taken out of the tables from above. Also, I have made a presumption that a VIP is probably paying the special $9.99 a month price so these tables reflect that pricing

Numbers Explanation

*Price based on Tome of Fate (595) & 5 characters

^Price based on Harper Agent

+price assumed based on the varience of similar items in the store

**90 days VIP price is cheaper than 2 @ 30 day VIP pricing

^^Price based on Glamered Weapon Aura & 5 characters

 

Also, as there is no store equivalent, and because I also ignored them for other expansions, I intentionally did not put a price on the scarecrows.

 

Shadowfell Conspiracy Comparison

Here are the numbers I made for the collector’s edition of Shadowfell Conspiracy. They have been modified to reflect the same rules above.  There is however, one important difference: these values do not include the content as Ravenloft does.

VIP /Premium Per additional character
Collectors edition cost $ $49.99 $49.99
3 character slots 1875
Greater epic tome 1595
3 iconic heroes 2985
+2 skill tome per character 1475 295
2000 points 2000
Collectors pack value 9930 295
Tressym companion 395
Owlbear Companion 395
2 cosmetic goggles 200
Bladeforged iconic hero 995
3 cosmetic armors 2385
Collectors extras value 4370 0
Collector + extras 14300 295
TP/$ 286.0572 5.9012

 

Conclusions

At first glance Shadowfell is clearly a better value.  There are some things to keep in mind though.  For starters, you get the cosmetic armors and hats on EVERY character which means you get more copies of them than just the 1 received in Shadowfell and this is not really reflected.  Of course these are BTC, which is why I only included 1 in the pricing, but it does mean you could outfit all of your characters with these cosmetics.  Additionally, ALL of Ravenloft will be available at a later date so it is probably reasonable that we are getting less value for dollars in that regard

On the other hand, Shadowfell numbers don’t include the content.

So while there are some nice and unique things in Ravenloft that you wont be able to get anywhere else, they are mostly cosmetic (and the scarecrows) and it does not appear to be a very good deal compared to shadowfell.
