Card Pack Changes Coming - No More Duplicate Legendaries

There are a few changes coming in the future, that are not yet live, to how we obtain cards in packs.
These changes will go live with the next expansion.

  • No more duplicate Legendary cards. Once you've crafted or obtained a certain card (gold or normal), it isn't possible to obtain again until you've earned all the legendaries from a set.
  • You will get a guaranteed Legendary within the first 10 card packs of a new set.
  • It will not longer be possible to open more than 2 of a Common, Rare, or Epic card out of a single card pack. You can still obtain dupes in other packs of course.

Ben Brode states in the video that the team is "super excited" about the changes in "the context of our next expansion". It sounds like we may be getting some pretty awesome Legendaries and we won't have a repeat of what happened with Un'Goro.

  • If we get another 50 card pack pre-order, that means you'll be certain to get 2 Legendary cards.
  • You can buy bundles during the sale, and if you delay opening the packs until the new expansion arrives, they'll benefit from the new system. (Source)

Additionally, a special promotion is going to be run starting soon which will increase the number of packs you will receive when purchasing Un'Goro Packs.

Original Pack Bundles Special Pack Bundles
7 packs +2 packs = 9 packs total
15 packs +5 packs = 20 packs total
40 packs +12 packs = 52 packs total
60 packs* +18 packs = 78 packs total

Quote from Blizzard

WAAAH, Legendary!

Starting with the release of Hearthstone’s next expansion (but applying to ALL Hearthstone card packs), every time you open a Legendary in a card pack, it will be a Legendary card from the same set that you don’t already own. Once you own either the golden or non-golden version of a Legendary card, you won’t get a duplicate of it until you own all the Legendary cards from that set. Soon, you’ll be able to craft a Legendary without the worry of opening it in your next few packs!

In addition, you will never open more copies of any card in a pack than you can use in a single deck—no more opening three or more of the same common, rare, or epic card in one pack! 

Even More Legendary!

Beginning with the release of the next expansion, you’re also guaranteed to get a Legendary within your first 10 packs of a new set. The release of a new Hearthstone expansion is a super exciting time, and with this change we hope your pack openings start off on a celebratory note!

Combined, these changes should make the pack opening experience more exciting than ever—especially when you see that flash of gold heralding a Legendary card!

The Greater Crater Promotion

Elise Starseeker and her junior explorers have stumbled upon a fascinating discovery: a crater full of card packs! Starting in the next few days, we’re having a special limited time promotion for Journey to Un’Goro card pack bundles: the price stays the same, but the number of packs gets dino-sized!
