If so, is it the 3rd printing (with the errata corrected)? We have one of the paperbacks and the first printing of the hardcover, but there are so many changes that our hardcover is untrustworthy but the paperback printing is too small for our middle-aged eyes to read comfortably for longer than just a quick rule check. I’d like to get a new hardcover if it is as up-to-date as the pocket edition, but can’t tell from the product page.


I’d like to know this too. Currently using pdf and pocket paperback for exactly this reason.

Still think they should have given it an edition number or put the printing in the name if they’re going to make big changes, so it’s easy to tell what you’re buying.

I pulled the trigger last night and ordered it. If it isn’t the latest printing, I’ll just have to deal with the returns process.

I probably won’t get it for a few weeks - it’s in my subscriptions sidecart - but I’ll post here when I get it.


Is there a way to tell it's a later printing without opening the book?

The latest hardcover should match the text of the Pocket Edition. There are likely still first printings out "in the wild" at stores and distributors, but I am confident that CRBs ordered from paizo.com as of now will have the errata incorporated.

That’s great to hear - thanks!
