Hearthstone Patch 8834: Heroes of the Storm Rewards
A new Hearthstone build has made its way to Blizzard's servers and includes the card back that we previously found in the Heroes client.
Heroes of the Storm Card Back
A new card back has been added which is rewarded from the quest "Hero of the Storm". It is obtained by hitting level 12 in Heroes of the Storm. Check out our animated preview of this card below (requires an updated browser)
Heroes Mount Quest
The quest "Easy Rider" has been added to the game which rewards you with an in-game mount in Heroes of the Storm for winning 100 games in Hearthstone's play mode. Checkout a video of the mount in action below.

ok, please let me know if "threadomancy" is not allowed (it probably isn't, but I'm a risk taker... LoL)
(btw "threadomancy" is the dark art of resurrecting long dead and forgotten threads and is often frowned upon if not outright on forums across Azeroth and beyond)
(I got turned into a pink horror at papa nurgle for the same offense)
I just started playing heroes of the storm to get the card back, the game is alright, but I heard these games are extremely poisonous and I'm a sensitive kind of guy in that if some kid is being rude to me, I will open up a portal to the part of my brain where the rage collects and unleash a torrent of pure, unadulterated chaos and doom upon them.... I don't need that kind of negativity in my life just for a card back.
So my question to you fine Azarothians (or whatever you dudes are called) is it futile to level vs the AI with an AI team on my own, will I get less XP this way? I'm currently at level 7 and it seems to be taking a while... I'd rather it take longer than have to play a game with petulant children though really tbh.
PS: the flying carpet hearthstone card is great btw.. Malfurion looks awesome on it!
BTW I play ranged sin or ranged support if anyone ever wants to try and get me hooked on this game. I think with the right team I'd probably enjoy it, as long as people were not shouting at me the entire time.
Got mine this morning, YAAAAAAY. A friend got it yesterday.
P.D.- Yes, it's animated in-game :D
Still haven't gotten the cardback and I've been level 40 since beta. Yes I've logged into heroes and hearthstone multiple times since the patch. Kinda ridiculous that people who play for 2 hours get it and those of us with hundreds of games have to wait.
Hi Mosrhun, you seem like you know what you talking about so I have a question: How many hours does it take aproximatelx to reach level 12? Thanks for your reply!
you need to play about 15-25 games to get to rank 12- depending on experience gained each game can be between 15-30 minutes. sometimes 10min very rarely 40min or more :D
mount will be available next week (told by blizz)
The game is great.And for those that want something hardcore and for those taht want a more casual experience like me in MOBAS.
Is this baby live already? We should be able to get it from today, June 2nd, right?
If I play HOTS on America server, do I also unlock the card back in my Asia server account in Hearthstone?
90% sure that is impossible
Thanks for the heads up. Better level up my HOTS in Asia then win 91 more games in Americas. :(
Cardback is account bound. So u can get lvl 12 in 1 region and u get cardback for EU and NA. i just read it on reddit
I play hearthstone on asia, yet i think i may be playing in a different region on Hots. does that affect me at all?
I wont play hots just for this cardback.
but its the coolest cardback EVER.
just LOOK at that animation
cool story brah
So where is my hero mount in HotS? Already over 100 wins in HS but no mount. Currently level 9 on HotS and I really hope i'll be getting the card back.
it says it being added as a quest.
which means if you get another 100 wins,and no mount,activate riot
I exclusively play Co-op, because Quick Play mode sucks; you pick a hero then get thrown onto a totally random team (unlike LoL's or Dota 2's casual play modes where you get thrown onto a random team and THEN everyone chooses a hero). As a result, games can be instantly decided at the start based on who got the better team comp (support heal stacking is dominant at the moment, so if they have 3 supports and you got none, you're boned). I'm using Co-op exclusively to grind to level 30 when Hero League is unlocked, which I'm assuming is draft mode (if it's not, I'll be pissed- and probably quit the game as a waste of time). The problem is it's taking FOREVER.
Stim Packs are a wonderful thing
