The Road to Level 50 - What's Your Choice?
Everyone playing Hearthstone, casual and hardcore alike, has been on the road to reach level 50 in the new Reward Track, where we will get the new Hero Portrait of our choice, out of the 10 main Heroes. Most people will get there in the life of this expansion, so we pose this simple question: If you have already reached level 50, which portrait did you go for, if you are still working on it, which one do you have your eye on?
all of them are deformed or uglier than the original heros. rexxar is the best even tho his nose looks kinda like a humans. garrosh would be my choice if his browridge wasnt slanted 45 degrees
Went with Illidan cuz its the only one I don't have an alt skin for. I'll then go for the ones that I have the least skins for from then on.
How should I get them by Order, cuz I think the next pass will have the same heroes
Reasons: I haven't got the battle pass cuz 20$ is so much for 7 skins and golden Legendary + coin
Jaina is 1st because I don't have any other skins for her.
Malfurion is next because I have 2 skins for him because I am bored of using Lunara.
Uther is next cuz I love his art the most. It's not 1st because I got Second War Uther.
Valeera, for me Maiv is way better looking, but the other heroes got more reasons why should she be 4th.
Anduin I won't take it because I got Tyranda & Madam Lazul and almost I got 1000 wins Anduin.
Illidan is 6th because I don't have a second skin on him, but I still don't play DH.
Rexxar was gonna be on the top of the list if I didn't have Warsong Rexxar.
Gul'dan is so far below cuz I don't like playing Warlock, I prefer the other classes.
Garrosh is 9th because I love the way more my Magni Bronzeberd skin.
And Thrall is last because I have 4 other skins for him.
Felheart Gul’dan. I have many a fond memory raiding Molten Core as an orc warlock back in the days of my wee youth; call me sentimental.
I took Valeera since Maiev is the only alternative availabel with the 1000 win.
I will use this portrait until i get the Pirate Valeera :) (almost 300 more win to do) or switch with the one from the book of heroes when available
Took Gul'dan since he only has Mecha-Jaraxxus and Nemsy and N'Zoth. Needed a little more flare!
Will be soon there! I'll take Valeera i think. But im not 100% sure yet.
Reaching 50 was pretty easy actually. One can really gather tons of gold till next expansion + plus we got a legendray.
Chose Rexxar. Next is Thrall or Gul Dan
Rexxar because I like it more than both the master portraits.
Reached yesterday, Jaina.
I reached 50 today and choose Malfurion Since that was one of the classes i have gold but did not have a hero portrait i loved for.
Oh, what a tough choice it was.
There were 4 options for me in the priority order:
So i tried to figure out what option will be the best for me.
Garrosh is completely badass (especially with his breathing on golden), but i dont have 500 wins on warrior and that Valhalla girl with her exclusive card back is great.
Guldan with golden animation looks amazing (with its fel whirling in hand), but N'Zoth is slightly better with his hero power animations and voicelines.
Valeera is simply cool. Period.
Rexxar is the most great portrait above all those lvl 50, also with its nickname (Giantstalker), looks and sounds epic. But Sylvanas is no brainer the best Hunter Portrait of all time.
And then i suddenly realized, that these portraits will be available at least for a year or maybe longer, so i dont need to puzzle over what to choose first like it was my last chance to choose and i also found out what class have the least number of skins. And this is rogue. So i picked Valeera without a doubt.
I am at lbl 49 rn and want Illidan just because i have no alternative for it and also maybe Rexxar. So question though, if i chose 1 which mean i have to wait for next expansion and reach another lbl 50 for another one??
How in God's name are people level 50?
playing hearthstone 4 hours a day, grindind ladder and abusing exp quests. lvl 110 atm.
I'm honestly there and I only do dailies/weeklies, as well as a handful of times spent really playing to reach diamond each season. Of course this is after all of the concessions to the system Blizzard made when we rain felfire over it.
Damn, you're right! Okay so here's my back-of-the-envelope calculation:
- 4 hours a day of ranked = 11200XP/week
- 1 daily quest per day = 7000XP/week
- 3 weekly quests per week = 6000XP/week
So that's about 24200XP per week. It takes 230400XP to get to level 100. So, if you played 4 hours a day, it's about 66 days to get to level 100. The rewards track was introduced on November 12, 2020, which was 63 days ago... plus, add in the one-time 14800XP you get from Achievements, which gets you an extra 4 levels, and that would put you almost exactly at level 104.
I'm not sure if I properly factored in all the XP bonuses along the way, though. Guess I learned something new today.
Just do all quests. I'm lvl 51 by just doing that, no extra games or grind, albeit I bought the boost, so without it I'd have been like level 40-42 I think. I also got 1 11-win run in the duels, it gave a lot of XP. Plenty of time to get lvl 50 before next expansion.
Valeera looks best...no question.
Illidan's face looks constipated
Jaina looks like she's wearing antlers for a Christmas party
Anduin's hair looks like some guy from Nordstrom selling shoes who's angry because he can't find a pair to fit you
The rest aren't bad, but Valeera's blades and blond hair...how can you go wrong?
It's sucks that you have to choose 1, they are all good
