Harbingers.
They lack any real direction as a clan. Anything they can do another clan can do better, and that doesn't represent an ancient cabal of vampires from the shadow lands very well, in my humble opinion.
I'd like to see some bleed for the HoS specifically. maybe make it necromancy to reflect harbingers ancient Mortus path use?

I have no numbers, but didn´t it sell out in all stores and now you cannot get a box anywhere? Ie, compared to other sets (except KoT) it sold very well? Or am I thinking wrong?

Do you have any information to back up this claim of selling like crazy?

At least, according to my experience (buyer for the local national distributor) the sales were more or less in the vein of previous sets. Slightly higher but not in the "like crazy" department...


Local shop burned through any ability to get precons after 2-3 boxes, and any practical means to order dried up quickly after. Boosters were hit and miss, but after the grand masquerade that year, I saw progressively less and less online, and when I checked distribution places pretending to be a store, they had zilch.
Kot took slightly longer, but dried up before httb, I just base "longer" on it being out before and staying optainable for a larger window.

Basically, "like crazy" went he precons, "fast for vtes" went boosters. Compare to other small sets, like SoC or EK, or larger sets like LoB, all of which were out for a bit, and still findable for not extreme prices after HttB was here and gone.

Aren't Laibon considered Bloodlines? There are four Laibon clans that could all use help, most notably making the Aye and Orun mechanics playable. Osebo are awful. I hope a few cards in this new set help out Laibon or at least that the next set be focused on Laibon. Just my two cents.

Laibon is a sect in vtes. The new set will not feature them, as it was announced to feature what's listed in this poll. So, while HoS and !salubri have laibon members (nkule loa and whatever the other ones called in the EK book) its not going to feature osebo(brujah bloodline), ishtati (Torrie bloodline) Akunanse (gangrel bloodline) or Guruhi (Oddly, a Nos "cousin" sort of bloodline).

So it is just guesswork.

Plenty of sets have sold out and can't be bought any longer.

My educated guess is that the HttB print run was noticeably smaller than previously, thus the normal sales numbers were enough to make it sell out rather quickly. Which is not the same as selling like crazy.
