Hey guys! I have kind of issue with my collection. I have some pretty shitty epics and legendaries that have not been played in normal decks for all these 2 years ( Paladin Nozdormu without any other cards for Cheese Paladin as an example). I don't know, should I keep them until some Blizzcon announcements or should I dust them right now?
Wait until rotation. Theres a high chance the classic set rework will happen then, and they will certainly give full refund for any cards they change. If you want to dust cards that will rotate though, go ahead, the meta is pretty much established by this point, any rotating cards that are not seeing play rn will not see any play until rotation, assuming you dont play Wild ofc.
As tempting as it is to get rid of a bad classic legendary, the general rule to follow is to keep all cards from evergreen sets. Idk if you play wild or not but as a standard player, I clear out everything from old expansions when the rotation hits and that keeps my dust at a good level. In fact, its probably safe to dust some garbage from rise of shadows or Uldum before classic cards right now, especially considering that the devs are planning to do something huge to the original set that I’m hoping will involve full dust refunds (keyword hoping)
At no point since launch has dusting anything but duplicates and golden cards been worth it - with the exception of nerfs.
The only winner when you dust even seemingly usless cards is Blizzard, as the return rate is so poor. You gain so little that it really isn't worth it, and due to to the nature of the game with its card rotations and all, all the most 'wealthy' F2P players have hoarded their collections from the start, and are sat on piles of gold and dust.
Those who naively climbed aboard the dust-craft-dust-craft train to create their perfect meta decks are the ones who have got more and more upset with the game overtime (and often quit, with salty posts on here). You've never needed perfect decks to climb with, and over reliance on deck lists, and failure to understand substitutions and shifting with the meta to get ahead of the widely shared lists and streamer decks, and also what makes certain decks tick and what is less vital makes for worse players as well.
