Sep 30, 2020JackJimson posted a message on Scholar Jaina and Horseman Uther skins getting unique voicelines in a new patch soon!Posted in: General Discussion
Just for reference.
EDIT: Nvm, found it.
We wanted to update everyone regarding our new hero skins, particularly Scholar Jaina and Horseman Uther. We are planning to add unique voice lines, start of game voice lines, and a couple other special voice lines to both Scholar Jaina and Horseman Uther in a future patch. We’ve taken feedback on board regarding emotes for those and upcoming hero skins. The next skin, which will be released shortly, has new emotes for all 6 regular board interactions and a few other commonly played lines as well. There will be hero skins in the next expansions associated with their corresponding Book of Heroes chapters that will not have unique lines at launch, but we plan to add them as soon as VO recording allows. Stay tuned for updates here.
Adding context as to how we got here: We started out with the idea of adding skins for our classic heroes that allowed us to get more options for visual customization into the hands of our players at a much quicker than normal pace. We’re confident in the idea behind these skins and they’re already seeing a lot of use within the game. However, we missed here on painting a clear picture of the difference between these skins and the alternate heroes we’ve done in the past, that include all sorts of unique audio and visual effects. That’s something we should have gotten across better and want to ensure that we address in the future.

The problem was with Leroy, it was a neutral card that can fit in many decks across multiple classes (i.e. top end finisher for aggro, combo piece for control/combo, etc.).
In contrast, Lapidary can only exist in a Demon Hunter AND soul shard deck.

Complete a Secret Quest
After a thorough examination of garments in our lost and found cupboard, Transfer Student has embarked on a laborious journey to find the perfect costume for the Masquerade Ball! We’ve identified an itinerary in the dormitory that outlines an intention to visit Dalaran, Uldum, Dragonblight, and the Black Temple. Scribbled on the back is mention of playing Rexxar’s tale in Hearthstone Book of Heroes, and at least one match in both Battlegrounds and Arena.
Retrace their steps and you’ll be rewarded with two golden copies of Transfer Student! Good luck!
Above is the blizzard quote.
So my guess is:
- Complete past adventures?
- Finish rexxar's book of heroes
- Play 1 match of arena and battle grounds.

You should see Cheonsu's lineup for GM lol. He tried to hard counter bomb warrior by teching in the standard stuff (like Acidic Swamp Ooze, Kobold Stickyfinger), plus cards you wouldn't even think about using-- Archivist Elysiana, Sphere of Sapience, and even the never seen Wyrmrest Purifier.

Honestly, I suggest you skip the event if you are a new player.
- The price of entry is very high. So, though you may win a lot, the chances of losing is much higher. As a new player, you don't have as much resources as the older players.
- Experience. The older players have an inherent advantage here, whether in prep (i.e. meta reading, deck building, etc.) or in the actual match.
That said, if you want the challenge and can afford to lose the resources, I suggest:
- Practicing a lot in ladder to get a better feel of the Meta.
- Find a deck that has a decent win rates across all meta decks. Looking a statistics sites like HSReplay and VS, are a good starting point.
- Play a lot so, you get experience in different situations, you can react more correctly.
- Finally, pray to the RNG gods for a safe journey.

Roping in tournaments is perfectly acceptable and the norm.
- As others have mentioned, you don't want to give away info on your hand. Ending your turn quickly can telegraph to your opponent that you have no cards to play. If you rope. you give the possibility to your opponent that you are thinking of making plays but decided to hold back.
- You think about plays ahead, not just your current turn.
- The stakes are higher. In ladder, you play for MMR. In tournaments, you play for thousands of dollars. Misplaying can cause you to lose a lot of money. Try watching pros outside of tournaments, they rope much less as losses mean less.

Legendaries are balanced around the fact that they usually will be played only once per game. So discovering them multiple times kinda breaks a core aspect of the game in a sense.
I agree with this.
I believe legendaries should be one-ofs in your deck as they are designed to be and considering their impact.

John McEntire: At the Darkmoon Faire
Oct 23, 2020Posted in: General Discussion
In recent times I've tended to amass slightly over 8,000 gold in the 4 months leading up to a new expansion - mostly completing my dailies on ladder. While I suspect I play more than most, I doubt I'm a complete outlier or my experience is too atypical.
Releasing Darkmoon Faire 3 weeks earlier than expected means my pile will be about 1,400 gold or 14 expansion packs lighter. On the upside, we get to play the new content sooner.
Additionally, landing in the mid-diamond ranks most months nets me an additional 8 packs per month (4 SA and 4 classic packs), a sprinkling of dust and gold, and the occasional epic card. I have 5-6 Arena tickets, too, with rewards attached.
HS isn't cheap or overly generous, but I don't mind paying for a game that I play regularly and is being actively developed.
The upcoming game changes sound promising. Let's see.

Glad for the evo nerf. It's a great card but just generated too often and stretches out turns again and again. I think tempo mage should still be fine, it's just one card that doesn't always get early play and mage still gets plenty of value. Having evo to play once a game barring discover or mana cyclone seems fair.
I'm surprised that only these two cards were focused on though, it's not like tempo mage is THAT prolific. I think I've played it twice the last two days after dozens of hunters, demon hunters, and paladins. Would be nice to see some more diversity again. The top 3 classes seem like they've really started to proliferate...at least diamond 5-2 range that I've been in. Anyone seeing a different meta in that range or others?

I hate playing priests so much I insta concede against them (and I'm definitely not the only one doing this) and now I see 1 of these degenerates complain? What's so fun or interactive about playing a basilion Convincing Infiltrators and boardclears?
I think priest really needs a serious overhaul because the way it plays now is 1 of the most frustrating and unfun things to deal with. As long as priest plays as it does I'm all for it being bad and if you ask me HS development are free to nerf some of these annoying cards to the ground.

It may be hard to believe, but you are not the only one who plays the game.

I might be a niche audience. But I think its perfect for me.
I’ve returned a couple of weeks ago and have very little of a standard collection. So I’m looking for ways to expand my collection, and this is a good way for me.

Buying packs of ANY expansion in this game is like burning money, buying 40 packs may give ABSOLUTLY nothing, lately Blizard has been scamin people via crappy bundles like Jaina's or mega wild bundle, this is a trend that will likely continue, they already removed the pity timer for legendarys and I found out opening less legendaries than ever and getting even less value that costs more than 1 dolar for 5 virtual cards.
If you haven't invested any money yet I recommend you investing in a more user friendly card game than in any Blizzard game, good luck.
I don't get this... If you enjoy hearthstone, and want to spend money on it, then spend money on it... I spend like $150 a month on coffee, and like $600 a month on comic books and graphic novels... Why? Because I worked my ass off most of my life, and invest the rest of my money quite well to have grown a fairly large entertainment budget, so I can spend my rare free time exactly how I want. The $160 I spend on a hearthstone expansion wouldn't even cover a night out at the bar when I used to be into that crap...
I only play hearthstone about 40 hours a month, and buy approx 2 bundles per expansion. Money: Time spent is a great deal as far as I'm concerned
My girlfriends makeup budget... THAT is ridiculous.
