Since Paizo customer service is so awesome and I got the replacement today for a misaligned sheet in the Inner Sea Box; I want to finish getting the pawn boxes that I don't have yet. Namely Bestiary 2, 3, 4.
I'll get the book as well as the pawn box but my gaming budget for the next few months will only allow me to get one of the above for now.
So I was just wondering, whats the general consensus on which Bestiary is the next best after the first?
Otherwise should I just go in order and get 2 then 3 then 4?
I'd go in any order. Bestiary 2 has a slight planar slant, B3 has an "non-European myth" tingle and B4 has horror and Mythic, but each and every of them is freaking awesome.
That's the exact problem I have. They all seem so freaking awesome I just can't decide. I'm not sure if I should just hold out till I can get all three at once.
Was just curious, do the most recent modules or AP's use the later Bestiaries (2-4) instead? Do Bestiary 1 monsters still get seen in the more recent adventures? Or is it mostly the wacky new ones now?

For our adventures, we choose the best monster for the situation. So far we've used the earlier Bestiaries more than the newer ones, but much of that is a timing thing. As far as most useful, I'd go with Bestiary 2. Not only have more of those monsters shown up in our adventures than the monsters in Bestiary 3 and 4, but Bestiary 2 also served as the place that we could get a lot of classic monsters into a hardcover that we couldn't fit into the first Bestiary.
But, I love monsters, so you can't go wrong with any pick. Gorbacz's random selection method is perfectly valid. :)
Thanks Adam! I wasn't sure my opinion of Paizo could get any higher than 10/10, but I guess we can turn it up to 11/10.
2>3>4 it is then!
Then the Monster Codex Box when it comes out.
I might not be able to control my "Gotta catch em' all" OCD and slowly grab all the Adventure Path pawns too.
I certainly have WAY MORE than enough bases already :^>
Edit: Decided to give Gorbacz's idea a try. Rolled a 6, 6, 5. So I guess to get Bestiary 4 3x? I'll get it after 2. So 2 > 4 > 3 it is!
