You are right about that one.
I'm not that great at math, but one could certainly calculate by how much the chances of getting Barnes decrease by having one less card.
The quest is easy to complete for Big Priest, but the reward doesnt blend in perfectly at all.
It benefits decks that are almost 100% small and medium minions.
Big Priest is the opposite - few and big minions.
Obsidian Statue has very good synergy with the reward since it has Lifesteal. It also likely increases winrate vs Combo. Other than that it is just a bonus you get for not floating your first crystal, so the real question is how much decreases the Barnes chance if you lose one card in your opening hand and is that worth it.
No. That's exactly the point.
A two mana 3/2 benefits more from this hero power than a nine mana 4/8. Why? Let me explain.
A small, cheap minion will be able to trade up (= kill a more expensive minion) or survive a trade that would have otherwise killed it. So one hero power equals +1 minion and / or -1 enemy minion in this case.
A 4/8 cares a lot less about +3/+3 because it can kill many minions and / or survive fights even without the buff. The buff seldomly equals +1 minion or -1 enemy minion with big minions.
the card is good, but the design is soooooooo boring and lazy. Let's hope rogue quest won't be so resident sleeper as this
I don't know why you were so downvoted. The design really is boring.
I know right? Anyone that plays hearthstone can think of a quest for priest that says 'heal x health' and the reward is just stat buff slapped on top of a bit better basic priest hero power.
The condition, yes.
But the Hero Power is intriguing, you will have to choose between healing face or buffing minions. The latter is more value but the first will save your life.
you can put it that way, but it's still a 'meh' for me
So easy to judge an artwork when you can't even draw a piece of it. Someone worked hard to do that, let's value it. Spread love, not hate.
I'm not talking about the artwork, genius. I'm talking about what this card does. Also, you can judge an art without having the ability to draw
Reborn minions and Circle of Healing were already good friends, but this just makes them even better.
It certainly is interesting. Really depends on how easy it is to take and heal 15 damage, so far there's no new healing. But the hero power certainly is worth the effort, nice synergy with Amet. Don't know how good it's going to be, but for sure I'm going to enjoy playing with it for a while.
Finally they found some use for it LOL
Very nice flavour and lot of potential
Interesting how you specifically focus on the flavor. I really like the card, it just doesn't make a whole lot of sense that you activate an obelisk by healing it. It could be any ol artifact that could store healing energy or whatnot.
That said, maybe it's directly tied to the E.V.I.L. symbol and/or what they wanna do in Uldum. in which case, I guess its full of flavor.
And Priest suddenly became viable.
As a main priest I can tell: YES.
Holy. Shit. This is insanely good.
Mix in that reborn potential and priest is going to blow up some variant of endless taunt madness
