This printing differs from the Seventh in several ways, most notably the cover art.
- The cover art has changed, with the "efreet" cover replaced by a "DM/wizard" and a pair of doors
- The changed cover art is not reflected in an erroneous note on the copyright page, which still describes the older art
- The copyright page also still states, incorrectly, "Revised Edition, Dec 1979",
- The spine is orange
