    posted a message on Opened Finley After Buying Tavern Pass

    Maybe you didn't claim Finley on the track before opening your packs? Anyway, as the others have stated, you can disenchant Finley for a full refund until tomorrow. I got him too as one of my preorder legendaries. Think of it as a legendary of your own choice.

    Yeah, the big bundle is tempting. and if you really want it, I won't discourage you from buying it - I just think the smaller bundle is the better value. I used to always buy the big bundle to get the hero portraits, but there are so many portraits now that it doesn't really matter anymore, and I would rather have the tavern pass. Buying both the big bundle and the tavern pass every expansion would be too expensive for me :) But go ahead, if you can afford it and feel like it!

    I don't know what the price of the welcome back bunde is, but if its 30$ or less, it seems like good value, and I would probably buy it as a returning player. But don't open the packs before after the rotation and the new expansion goes live on Tuesday - that way, you're guaranteed to only get cards that are viable in standard for the next year.

    I think the expansion looks really fun, and the community generally seems excited as well! Rotation is always the best time to come back to Hearthstone.

    If I were you, I would buy the smaller bundle, because IMO it's better value than the larger bundle. When the expansion launches, I would buy the tavern pass, which grants you an XP bonus, helping you progress on the reward track faster for more gold and packs. Buying the pass + the smaller bundle is also cheaper than buying the large bundle!

    Since you have been away for four years, you might not have heard that duplicate protection now covers all rarities. That means that you will not open duplicate commons before you have opened all that expansion's commons, and the same for rares, epic and legendaries. This has made it significantly easier to get all rares and commons in a set, and that makes it possible to build several different kinds of decks faster than before. With the preorder + core set + alterac miniset, you should be able to build a couple of different fun decks. 

    If you have any questions about changes there's been to Hearthstone in the years you've been away, feel free to ask!

    Quote from Aventurier >>
    Quote from Mackie264 >>

    No, you don't keep cards that get rotated out of the core set next year. So for example I have the Lock and Load card from the core set but I don't own the regular copy of it so next Tuesday I won't have that card to use in wild. So if you dust your rag and kale you won't have them after they rotate out of the core set, whenever that is.

     except if you have the golden copy of Lock and Load unlocked ?

     It doesn't matter if its golden or not, if you only have access to it through the core set, you won't have it anymore after rotation.

    posted a message on Full Core Set Year of the Hydra - With All New Additions!

    These are some really great changes. Rotating out cards that saw no play in favour of bringing back fan favourites was definitely the right call to make. The better the core set, the better the F2P and newbie experience will be.

    You CAN dust old copies of the cards in the legacy set, and you still own them, you're just looking for them in the wrong places. Look under "legacy set" in your collection, there you'll find your own Braon Geddon etc., perfectly dustable if you want to. And no, you won't keep the core cards if they rotate next year, so it's a bad idea to disenchant the copies you own in case you want to play them in another format when they are no longer part of the core set.

    I mean, some of them are nerfed cards reverting back to their original form (Execute and Equality for example), the power creep argument doesn't really work on them. I'm not saying that there hasn't been any power creep at all, but it's more nuanced than you're making it out to be.

    Yeah, they messed up the reveal. The link is to the current core set, not the new one... They should just have made a blog post with ALL the changes.

    Many core sets. But no hall of fame cards. So there arn't any cards that grand us dust on the day of the expension this year?

    Hall of Fame was abolished last year when the classic set rotated out in favour of the core set. So no, no automatic dust refunds this year either, and probably never again.

    My guess is the achievements will stop granting xp when the next patch launches, probably on Thursday - but it could be as early as tomorrow after the announcement.

    posted a message on Is the Discover/card generation out of wack?
    Quote from KairosFPS >>

    I like the Discover keywork in most circumstances. I agree when you say "It helps with the rock-paper-scissors feeling of the game" and that's the main reason why I like it.

    However there are some instances like Tracking, Moonlit Guidance, or the Study cards such as Nature Studies or Carrion Studies that frustrate me. Cards like these are too cheap for their ability.

    Personally, I'll feel better when the Study cards rotate when Sunken City releases, because those cards proved (in my opinion anyway) that cheap/0 mana card generation is too powerful.

    Tracking isn't card generation though, it draws the card from your deck.

    posted a message on When was the turning point?

    I still have tons of fun with Hearthstone. If i didn't, I wouldn't play.

    It's fun to see how people's perception of past metas change as time passes. I remember when everyone HATED the Gadgetzan meta with Patches the Pirate and pre-nerf Small-Time Buccaneer. So many decks ran the Pirate package that they literally printed a hate card the next expansion in the form of Golakka Crawler. Or how about jade Druid?  That too had a hate card printed to deal with it.

    People complain about power creep, but there has been soooo many busted cards throughout the years, so many frustrating decks to play against - and, for me, so many fun, crazy moments that it's kept me playing for almost six years.

    Fuck you, Kazakusan Druid who transformed ny Mi'da, Pure Light using Puzzle Box when I would have completed the achievement next turn. You had already won! Why, oh why did you feel the need to transform the board?? I was soooo close :(
