May 7 Unofficial Hearthstone Glossary Greetings! I made this post long ago in the general forums during beta and it never got stickied. It has since gone the way of the dodo. Well, I figured it might be helpful for folks here so I thought i'd repost it. Please post if you have any questions or see errors or mistakes I can correct and I'll happily update this. Also feel free to request a sticky since I think this can be helpful for a wide range of players. Hope you enjoy! --A-- Achievement - An in-game acknowledgement of a certain accomplishment, such as winning 100 matches or unlocking all basic cards. Each one usually offers a one-time reward. Adjacent - The minions that are directly next to a certain minion, on both sides. Arcane Dust - A material generated by disenchanting cards, or won in arena play, that is used to create new cards. Area of Effect (AoE) - An action that is applied to multiple characters simultaneously, usually without targeting any of them directly or specifically. Armor - Protection against attacks, which is removed by damage before health is lost. There is currently no known maximum value for armor. Attack - The process of having a character deal damage to another character based on attack values. Attack (Value) - "How much damage [something] deals." The attack value of a minion is displayed at the bottom-left corner, while attack values for heroes are given by weapons, hero powers, or other spells. --B-- Battlecry - "Does something when you play it from your hand." These effects only occur when a minion is summoned from a player's hand, therefore they are not triggered by resurrection effects or changes in owner. Battlefield - Middle portion of the game board, split into two sides, where minions exist once summoned. Each player can only have up to 7 minions on their side at any time. BM - Stands for "Bad Manners". Is used to refer to players who drag out a turn when they already have lethal damage, or spam emotes. BM isn't always "bad", and can viewed as playful. --C-- Card - A spell, minion, or weapon in a player's deck or hand. Each deck can only have up to 2 of any particular card in it, except for Legendaries (see Rarity), which have a limit of 1 per deck of each. Character - Term used to indicate both minions and heroes, used on card text to indicate that an effect can be used against minions and/or heroes. Charge - "Can attack immediately." This eliminates the usual one-turn delay on minion activity (see Exhaustion). Coin - A bonus card only given to the player who goes second at the start of a match. It provides one extra mana on one turn and counts as a spell. Combo - "A bonus if you already played a card this turn." Any card previously played in a turn triggers the combo, but a combo effect can only happen once and is not an additive effect based on playing more cards (unless otherwise noted, e.g. Edwin VanCleef). Controller - The player who currently has a minion on his/her side of the battlefield is that minion's controller. Certain cards let players take control of a minion, moving it from the opponent's side to their side of the battlefield. This does not trigger Battlecry effects. Cost - The amount of mana that must be spent to play a card. It is indicated at the top-left corner of every card. Counter - "A card that is countered has no effect." Currently only used by the Mage card Counterspell. Crafting - Creating cards from Arcane Dust. The cost to make a new card depends on its rarity. --D-- Damage - Removing a certain amount of health from a character. The term "direct damage" is often used to refer to targeted, rather than AoE (see Area of Effect), effects. Deathrattle - "Does something when it dies." This effect is triggered by death due to loss of health and outright destruction (see Destroy), but is lost when a minion with deathrattle is transformed (see Transform). Deck - The collection of 30 cards a player can draw from during the course of a match. It is located at the right side of the battlefield during a match, and typically includes cards from a specific hero and neutral minions. Deck Types - These are terms often used to refer to decks that have certain themes or play styles. Examples include: Rush Deck - Designed to defeat an opponent quickly, often by bringing out many small minions during the early game. Control Deck - Designed to let the player last a long time, and gain a late game advantage to defeat an opponent. Mill Deck - Designed to make the opponent draw more cards than can effectively be used, and defeat the opponent through damage and fatigue (see Fatigue). Murloc/Pirate Deck - Designed around a particular type of minion, such as murlocs or pirates, and victory usually relies on synergy between these minions. Defeat - When one player reaches zero health, and the opponent has at least one health, then he or she is defeated. A defeat rewards less experience to a hero than a victory. Destroy - Removing a minion from the battlefield without dealing any numerical damage, so the removal ignores effects like Divine Shield and Immunity. Discard - Taking a card from a player's hand and removing it from the game without it ever having an effect. This is often done if a player has too many cards in his or her hand, or due to effects from other cards. Disenchanting - Destroying a card to gain arcane dust. The amount of dust granted through disenchanting depends on card rarity, though gold cards give more dust than normal versions. Divine Shield - "The first time this minion takes damage, ignore it." It's important to note that the shield will not protect against effects that destroy a minion without dealing numerical damage. Draw - Taking a card from a player's deck and placing it in that player's hand. This is done with one card at the start of every turn, and can occur as the result of other cards and effects. Durability - A value that indicates how many times a weapon can be used to attack. Each attack typically removes one durability. It is displayed at the bottom-right of a weapon. --E-- Enemy - During a match, enemy characters are the hero and minions on the opposite side of the battlefield, owned by the opponent player. Enrage - "While damaged, this minion has a new power." Note that the enrage effect is only active when the minion has less than maximum health, and healing to full health removes the enrage effect. Exhaustion - The condition a minion has only on the turn it is summoned, which prevents it from attacking - sometimes also called "summoning sickness" by players (see Charge for an exception). Experience - An intangible reward granted to players at the end of a match. Experience is used to gain levels, and the amount rewarded to players is directly proportional to the length of a match. --F-- Fatigue - Damage dealt when a player must draw a card, but has no deck to draw from, often at the start of a turn. It is additive for each time a player must draw without a deck to draw from: 1 damage the first time, 2 damage the second time, 3 damage the third, etc. Freeze - "Frozen characters lose their next attack." Frozen heroes cannot attack with weapons, but can play cards and use hero powers. The freeze effect lasts until the start of the next turn of the player of the spell or minion that freezes the target - this means that an attacking minion that becomes frozen, will unfreeze at the start of the next turn. Friendly - Term used to refer to the hero and minions that you own on the battlefield, as opposed to enemy characters on the other side. --G-- Game Options - Different ways in which a player can play a match in Hearthstone. The three basic types are: Arena - A play mode in which a player chooses from 3 pre-selected heroes and creates a deck, one card at a time, from a random draft. Constructed Play - The term used for matches in which players use either basic decks or ones they have constructed ahead of time. This includes both Ranked and Casual play. Practice - A play mode in which a player is matched against a non-player opponent, controlled by the game itself. Game Phases - The part of a match that two players are currently in. While other games often have multiple phases that occur each turn, in Hearthstone these terms are generally used to indicate how far along a match has progressed. The three most common phases are: Early Game - The first few turns for each player, usually lasting until about the 4th mana crystal has been created. Mid Game - The time when a player has between 4 and 8 mana crystals. Late Game - The turns when a player has enough mana to use pretty much any card, usually with 8+ mana crystals available. Gold - Currency used to buy packs of cards and enter the arena (see Game Options). Gold is earned by winning matches and completing quests. Gold Card - Copies of cards with bold borders and special animations on them. They are visually different from normal versions, but are identical in terms of effect, cost, health, attack, and durability values. Continued below...Raz52 May 7
Mar 11, 2014 Welcome: Please Read! Welcome to the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft New Player Tavern! Before you begin posting we’d like you to understand a few things about how to post here, what’s appropriate to post, as well as how to best use these forums. Please read and be aware of the Code of Conduct and the forum posting guidelines. These will ensure that we can all enjoy discussing games with one another. Posting To get started you’ll need a BattleTag. This is a name you choose that identifies you throughout all Blizzard games. If you currently play World of Warcraft, Diablo III, or StarCraft II you probably already have one. If you participated in the Hearthstone beta, that license counts as well. If you do not play any of these games, you’ll want to visit, log in to your existing account (or create a new one), and then choose to create a BattleTag on the left. You will also need a game license attached to the account, even if it’s just a Starter Edition. If you’ve just created your BattleTag and/or attached a game license you may need to wait a short while before being able to post. Learn more about BattleTags here! Important Reminders: Search The search function at the top of the forum page is extremely effective and robust. Before you create a new forum topic, please be use it to search for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer for which you are looking. Making a new thread on an existing subject can result in your thread being deleted or, if you continue to re-post the same content, the loss of your forum privileges for spamming. Rating The forum rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, demote unhelpful comments, and even report posts that violate the forum Code of Conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with several options, including a "thumbs up" (Like) and a "thumbs down" (Dislike) icon. Clicking the "thumbs up" icon will rate the post up. If enough people like a post, it will gain a Highly Rated status and appear at the top of related search results. Highly Rated posts will also have a highlighted background. Clicking the "thumbs down" icon will expand a drop-down menu which will include "Dislike," "Trolling, "Spam" and "Report" options. "Dislike" will rate the post down. If enough people dislike a post, it will be darkened, and with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden completely. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of a violation. Please note that you can only rate each post once. Use your power wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Info Follow and talk to us on Twitter @PlayHearthstone and on for game news and information. Guidelines In addition to the forum Code of Conduct, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, they cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The Hearthstone Closed Beta forums are for discussion of topics directly related to Hearthstone. The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topic not related to Hearthstone,, or Blizzard Entertainment is subject to deletion. 1.) Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, and/or non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. 2.) Using the words "Blizzard," "Blue," or any community team members' names in a thread topic is frowned upon. Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that; however, use of such words in the subject line does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. 3.) Posting "First" or IBTL ("in before lock") constitutes as spamming. You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL ("in before the lock") is not helpful, and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. 4.) Do not "bump" posts. The act of posting simply to bump a thread is considered spamming. This also includes bumping very old threads for no reason (called "necro bumping" or "necroing"). 5.) Petition posts are frowned upon. These are discussion forums and, as such, we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. 6.) Do not post about locked or deleted threads. Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. It's up to you to read the forum Code of Conduct and these guidelines to determine what you did wrong, learn from your mistake, and attempt to post again without breaking any rules. There is also cool down period we institute during times of high forum traffic. If you are violating policy during one of these times due to frustration, you will be given a three-hour cool down suspension. This does not get logged on your record and is simply in place to keep the forums readable and civil. Serious violations will still have the appropriate action taken against them as documented in the Code of Conduct, and we do keep track of these cool down periods separately—if one is found to be repeatedly violating policy, appropriate action will be taken.Keganbe0 Mar 11, 2014
4m Tips for Dungeon Runs It may be premature to start a list of tips for completing a Dungeon Run, since I have only taken the time to complete runs with one Class (Mage), but here goes anyways. For new players, here is a nice simple overview for how Dungeon Runs work: Keep in mind that new players can level Hero classes while doing dungeon runs. Tips: I will add to and update my tips as I get more Dungeon Run experience. 1) Since the final bosses are the most difficult to defeat, build your deck purely with them in mind. You need have enough minions in your deck to beat the early bosses, but you also need to pick cards that have attributes or synergies to help overcome the end bosses. Cards with a good battlecry or deathrattle (the AI does not like to attack deathrattle minions) are often helpful. Take a look at Hearthpwn's spreadsheet to check out the variety of card bundle options that you may be presented with for a particular class: 2) Know your bosses and their hero powers so that you can mulligan properly. You do not want a handful of minions with 2 or less attack vs. Russell the Bard or handful of cheap spells vs. Gutmook. Here is a list of Bosses and their Hero Powers: 3) Learn which passive loot cards to prioritize for a particular class or deck. For instance, Robe of the Magi may work well for Mages, but not so well for Warriors. Among weak choices, like Khadgar's Scrying Orb (your spells cost 1 less), Grommash's Armguards (your weapons cost 1), a choice like Cloak of Invisibility (your minions have permanent Stealth) can be a great choice, unless your deck is full of Taunt minions. Stealth helps to foil bosses with Hero Powers that need to target your minions, like Waxmaster Sturmi's copy power. Permanently stealth-ed Rags are awesome! I happen to like Scepter of Summoning (your minions that cost 5 or more cost 5) to help set up recruiter, summoning, or dragon synergies or for getting a lot of early cheap Rags in play: 3) Know the which Loot Treasures cards to prioritize for your class and deck. Here is a list of the Treasures and their abilities: So far, some of my favorites are: Archmage Staff: (0 Mana) At the start of your turn, add a random Mage spell to your hand. Primordial Wand: (4 Mana) Adapt a friendly minion. Repeat for each boss you’ve defeated this run. Horn of Cenarius: (2 Mana) Recruit 3 minions. Wand of Disintegration: (3 Mana) Silence and destroy all enemy minions. Orb of Destruction: (3 Mana) Destroy 2 of your opponent’s Mana Crystals and they discard 2 cards. Gloves of Mugging: (1 Mana) Steal 3 cards from your opponent’s hand. Amulet of Domination: (2 Mana) Take control of an enemy minion. Add it to your Dungeon Deck. Magic Mirror: (1 Mana) Choose a minion and summon a copy of it. Add it to your Dungeon Deck Permanently. One amusing anecdote: I thought I had a win locked in against a final boss and then it used Wish (10 Mana: Fill your board with Legendary minions. Fully heal your hero), which it had copied from my deck to take control of the match. I have not picked the card again as a result. For those of you that have completed multiple dungeons runs feel free to share some of your best tips or strategies for defeating some of the end bosses with a particular class.Zee2 4m

6h Ask a Question: The New Player’s Hearthstone Reference Tool Welcome to “Ask a Question: The New Player’s Hearthstone Reference Tool!” Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a fun little digital collectible card game (CCG) that, like most competitive card games, frequently sees community controversy over that most fundamental of dichotomies: the balance of luck and skill. The goal of this guide is to answer questions concerning Hearthstone’s mechanics, concepts, and strategies for the new player. Since there is so much information to cover, in order to accomplish our goal, this guide will by necessity have to be somewhat dynamic—rather than having all the answers available in one place, we will attempt to answer all the questions. What does that mean, in practical terms? It’s quite simple: ask a question, and you will receive an answer that is as comprehensive and easy-to-understand as possible. Naturally, the more narrowly you focus your question, the better the answer you will receive. For example, the question “How do I defeat Midrange Shaman?” can be difficult to answer without context. It is easier to answer a question such as “How do I defeat a Standard-format Midrange Shaman deck with this decklist/card pool?” Let’s start with some anticipated frequently-asked questions: Q: Who the heck are you? A: Glad you asked! I’m Everisto—I’m an amateur poker, Magic: The Gathering, and Hearthstone player. I play a lot of card games, and I want to share what I’ve learned with newer players. In terms of my Hearthstone résumé, I am a (sometimes) Legend-rank player, an “infinite” Arena competitor, and a control deck addict. Q: Why make a forum thread dedicated to answering questions? A: I’ve spent a fair amount of time reading these forums (though I haven’t made many posts), and I’ve seen a lot of great questions. Unfortunately, these questions often receive answers that are incomplete, ill-considered, or misleading. Even worse, there are some excellent answers that are buried under a flood of posts, making them difficult to pick out. I believe that a resource that focuses on provided detailed answers to the questions of new players is a great way to welcome them to the community and mitigate the difficulty of playing a game that has fairly high barriers to entry. Q: I’m more of a picture/visual learner. Do you stream/make videos/offer coaching? A: I’m afraid that I don’t, and have no plans to do so in the foreseeable future. However, I know that there are a number of streams and informational videos available through sites such as YouTube and Twitch, and there are many players on these very forums that offer to coach players free of charge. These are great resources to make use of, and I highly recommend availing yourself if you have the time. Q: I see a question that I know the answer to. Can I post my answer? A: Feel free! If you give a really good answer, I might simply reference your post in my own answer. On the other hand, I might disagree with you. By the same token, if you disagree with one of my answers, go ahead and say so. I don’t intend to get into detailed discussion chains, but having access to multiple opinions is a good way to learn. With that out of the way, let’s get to answering some questions! I look forward to hearing from you!Everisto36 6h

9h Kobolds Discussion Thread So, I figured it would be a cool idea if we had a thread where we could just talk about the new cards. Discussing the merits of cards and deck ideas is actually a great way to learn more about the game. And you guys should know by now that I think learning is awesome. So, here's the list of currently released cards and I hope to read your thoughts, questions and deckbuilding ideas soon. 9h
11h one night in karazhan Hey guys! I just want to make a quick question. I played Hearthstone back in 2015 just free-2-playing I didn't invest much time into it. Now, I want to get back to this game, I played some games last month and finished rank 11 with midrange hunter. However, now I wanted to play with better decks and stuff like that... So my question is: Is it worth to buy the One Night in Karazhan now? I know it gives some quality legendaries like Barnes and Medivh and good commons like kindly grandmother, priest of the feast, etc etc. So is it worth now? Or should I use the 20 bucks to buy packs? Thanks in advanceSasukespc5 11h
12h When does the 3 wins for 10G limit refresh? I know you're only allowed 100 gold a day from this "quest" but when does it refresh? Is it literally per day as in it goes from 00:01 to 23:59, or does it reset when the daily quest is given?Spaghetti1 12h

1d Why do players concede so early? I get the occasional opponents who concede as early as the 2nd or 3rd turn. I get a free 1/3 crown to get my next gold anyway, so it's still good :-) I just find it amusing they gave up so early instead of going for a comeback late in the match. Anyone else has come across these sort of players who leave early?MightyOwl37 1d

2d noob players beware if your a noob player, it is not worth playing ,you are going to spend alot of real life money. id spend some money blizzard knows how much i spend dirty truckers first you got buy lots of cards Whispers of the Old Gods Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro talk about the 40 packs Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs and then they dont give you enough dust to make cards so front you blizzardelmoco4 2d
2d Bought KFT packs instead of K&C, can anything be done? Title. edit: Worth mentioning that this was bought with in-game gold currency. I feel like such an idiot. In my excitement to get on my PC and buy packs, I didn't stop to check what packs I was on by default when I went to the shop. I thought it would be K&C as I had bought 4 packs mere minutes prior on my mobile, and it usually remains on the last purchased pack when you return to the shop, but not when you switch between devices I guess. Theres really no excuse, im an idiot. Im just wondering if there is a return feature I don't know about? Or perhaps this is something I can put in a support ticket about somewhere? This seems like one of those "what did you learn" kind of circumstances though...Madman3573573 2d
2d noob questions Good day sir/maam! I have some questions since I am new to the game for quite some time. 1) DISENCHANTING I want to collect cards, as we all do. Hence, I have pre-purchased the latest expansion using bnet balance. Since it contained duplicates, I wanted to disenchant some of it. Knowing that each deck only consists of at most 2 duplicates, should I disenchant the cards that is more than 2 copies? Can I choose, say a neutral card, to add it to another customized deck even if it was already chosen to what I am currently using, if I only had two of that? I have only read about disenchanting gold cards to give more dust. 2) GOLD I have not bought any expansions or card packs at all except the one mentioned above. And so, I am thinking of purchasing some packs using bnet balance. What would be the most worthy number of packs purchased each expansion? Let's say I'm trying to save more gold in WoW to buy other stuff in the future. Thus, I want to optimize my gold consumption. Should I just play and do quests and use the in game gold to buy 1 pack everytime I have 100 gold coins. I wanted to use the gold in the arena but as a new player, having few cards is really hard competing inside the arena. Is it much worthy to buy the 1 pack for 100 gold or play arena regardless if I don't win since it also rewards a card pack? Thank you so much!Chiliflavor12 2d

2d How do you get packs? Beside paying for them (thing that I will never do), how do you get packs? Because I keep playing against players with rare and legendary cards and... it doesn't matter. They have op cards and I can't win one damn game. I can't get those 10 coins per 3 wins. Guess why? Because I lose every game against players with amazingly op cards. So... How can I get more cards without paying for them? Or is this game the core of pay to win games and there is nothing I can do but cry in a corner while I get destroyed by other players (they could be old and experienced player, they could be new players who paid lots of money for some pixels just to have a damn huge advantage, idk).AimlockEnox8 2d

3d Deck Advice for a noob? Hey there guys! I'm a rather new Hearthstone player. I tried copying parts of decks I found online and mixing them up with cards I had, as I didn't have enough dust to create the perfect replicas (I used a budget-version of the Control Paladin and added some elementals), but the deck feels a bit heavy somehow, and I often have trouble getting card draw and so on. So I'd like to post my deck here and see if anyone could offer me some basic tips on how to improve my deck (I got Tirion from the beginner pack deal, so at least I'm good on that front, haha). If this is in the wrong place, let me know, but I didn't see a better place to post this to. Deck image below: 3d

Examples from two of my F2P collections: To get set up for getting monthly reports, click on the down arrow next to the Blizzard logo on the launcher to select "Account Management" and then go into "Settings" to access your "Communication Preferences" and be sure that the box to receive "News and Special Offers from Blizzard Entertainment" is checked.

6d That Feeling When... realize that Hearthstone is basically the PG version of Magic: the Gathering. Don't get me wrong, it's fun, and I like alotta the card art, but let's face it: Hearthstone doesn't require as much strategy as Magic, and it'll never be quite as good. Clearly, the target audience is teenagers and older children so if this is your first time playing a TCG, Hearthstone is a great place to start. And when you eventually grow out of Hearthstone's simple mechanics and crave a real challenge, you can always switch to Magic.DadKisser3 6d

6d "Basic and Classic Cards Only" Mode Any way for a new player to match up with people of more or less the same cards? Both Standard and Wild are dominated by strong cards outside of the classic and basic set. Been buying classic packs since they are recommended for new players but they simply do not keep up with newer cards. Loving the game but I wish there was a mode where only basic and classic cards are allowed. Thoughts?Shaxx9 6d
6d Stuck at rank 10 First of all, i know that there are ceilings where you can't drop further..but i'm really not enjoying hearthstone currently. I'm STUCK at rank 10 and can't drop any further, i need a way to actually enjoy the game and have progress. I'm trying to get all heroes golden but i can't since i'm losing all my games, and i can't get further down because of the annoyingly bad matchmaking system and the fact that i can't drop further anymore. I wish there was a mode in hearthstone where i could have fun AND progress towards something, because currently...HS doesn't at all. Can anyone help me out here?Tyani8 6d

Dec 4 Some Purchase Advice, Please Hello, I just got a little more serious about HS around the start of November after discovering some of the streamers and YouTubers (Kibler WarShack) and getting more interested in the game, and have since gone from F2P to purchaser, spending about $300 on a combination of Kara, the new expac, and a mix of card bundles. It's the latter I'm most interested in discussing more. I have purchased a mix of cards, and I am not sure that was the correct strategy. My question to the more seasoned players, if you are going to comfortably spend $50 or so a month on the game, which is about what Im prepared for and ok with doing, would you split those dollars between classics (there are still quite a few cards from classic I'd like to have - Patches, VanCleef, and others) and the new cards? I would like to have decks that can be close to whatever the meta flavor is, but I want to use my resources strategically. I've pre-ordered KAC but I keep going back and forth in my head if I should do another big classic bundle, or do a second bundle for KAC...Im getting to the point already where I purchased a classic pack last night with gold and ended up dusting the entire thing... Any solid advice would be much appreciated, even if its simply, stay away from Old Gods, Gadg, and UnGoro. Thanks-Dirth4 Dec 4
Dec 4 Ten Pack Legendary? Dear Blizzard, I just started playing this game(so new account). If I buy ten packs of the old expansions (Journey, Mean Streets, and Old Gods), am I guaranteed a legendary?

Dec 3 "Worthy Opponent" is a load of BS This game is NOT very welcoming or inviting to new players. I've been gaming for a "cough" long time, so I'm certainly not a novice when it comes to gaming. But I am struggling with this game so much that I already want to just stop playing it after only a few days. I've watched the beginner videos and guides. I understand the fundamentals of the game just fine. What is pissing me off is the fact that I win about 1/20 matches in a system that is supposed to be matching me with people of equal skill level/cards. It's very obviously NOT doing this. I've read in more than one forum post that rated matches are the best place to expect "worthy opponent" to be fairly accurate, yet after playing at least 50 rated matches (or close to it, not sure how to check) I've only won 7 times and roughly 3 or 4 of those 7 victories were from people leaving the battle early. I want to enjoy this game. It's fun. Or at least it would be fun if the concept worked. But I'm playing people with the same "rating" as me that CLEARLY have WAY better cards to choose from than I do and it's incredibly frustrating and makes me want to just move on.Manx24 Dec 3
Dec 3 Zee's Tips for Brand New Hearthstone Players: I thought I would distill my past advice into a simple list of tips to help new players to get started while they grow their card collections and learn to build decks to beat other players: 1) Sometime between completing the six tutorial missions and getting a combined total of 20 levels between your hero characters, you should take advantage of the Recruit-a-Friend promotion to earn a free pack of cards. For convenience, you can use any of my Recruit-a-Friend links to help you with getting your free pack: Use this Recruit-a-Friend link for the Americas server: For the EU server, you may use this Recruit-a-Friend link: For the Asia server, you may use this Recruit-a-Friend link: 2) Use your Mage hero to start unlocking other Hero classes by playing against those classes while in "Normal" practice mode (found in the "Solo Adventures" section). By unlocking every class you will complete the quest Ready to Go! to earn 100 gold. 3) Complete quests like Win 5 Practice Games, First Blood (play against another player in Casual play mode), and The Duelist to earn three pack rewards. 4) Continue to unlock heroes with your Mage until your Mage reaches level 10 to earn a pack from completing the quest "Level Up." As you level your Mage you will unlock some "Basic" cards for that class, such as Frostbolt (a great card to edit into your mage deck by going into "My Collection"). 5) Packs cost 100 gold each from the in-game Store. Any gold that you earn should be used to buy Classic packs until you get a Legendary card. Buy and open your packs one at a time until you get a Legendary card. There is a pity timer that guarantees that a player will get a Legendary by their tenth opened pack for a new card set. After opening a Legendary, the next pity timer guarantees a Legendary within opening 40 packs. Although It's common to average one legendary per 20 opened packs. Be aware that Pity Timers are tracked seperately for each card set. Once you get a Classic Legendary card, it might be smart to start buying packs of a different expansion (I would start with the most recent one) until you get a Legendary from that set. You could rinse-and-repeat this strategy of buying and opening packs for a set until you get a Legendary for a set and then move onto the next set until you have a Legendary from all of the different expansions. Then you will want to go back to buying Classic packs until you have a good foundation of Classic cards. ... ... Source: 6) Level one Hero (I would use the Mage) to level 20 to unlock another play mode called Tavern Brawls. On Wednesday of each week a new Tavern Brawl arrives. Your first win for playing a particular brawl usually earns you a free pack of Classic cards. You can slowly level a Hero by playing against the AI as you unlock Heroes in normal mode, or while trying to beat each one in "Expert" mode. Or you can level your hero while playing against other players in Casual mode or in Ranked mode. Be aware that Casual has a friendlier match making system for new players than Ranked does. You can also level character while playing against players in Arena (new players get one free Arena draft). Another way to level a character is by playing that Class while doing a Kobolds & Catacombs Dungeon Run (found in the Solo Adventure section). I have even leveled a new Mage while playing Kharzhan's (a solo adventure) Prologue. 7) Once you have completed the starter chain of unique quests, you will get a random quest to complete. Generally, it's best to re-roll 40 gold quests by clicking on the "x" in the upper right corner of the quest's description for a chance of getting a 50 or 60 or 100 gold quest, or the Watch and Learn! quest, which rewards a pack (a 100g value), or the Play a Friend! quest (which earns 80 gold for each player). You can re-roll one quest per day. I think you have to complete about ten 40 gold quests before it will allow you to get quests for 50 or more gold. Here is the list of possible quests that you might get: 8) There are some hidden quests or achievements which yield rewards when they are accomplished. One is fairly easy to do, Crushed Them All! , which will earn you 100 gold by beating all of the AI heroes while playing in "Expert" mode. Here is a list of achievements: 9) Complete the Prologue for The Frozen Throne (found in Solo Adventures) to earn a random free Legendary Death Knight card. Eventually, you will want to comeback to defeat Frozen Throne bosses to clear wings to earn some KotFT pack rewards and maybe a card back, but I suggest that you earn some more cards before attempting to beat these bosses. 10) Complete the first free wing (The Prologue) of Karazhan to earn the cards Enchanted Raven and Firelands Portal (a great card to edit into a new Mage deck). 11) You will earn 10 gold every time you get three wins while playing in Casual or Ranked modes, or while playing some Tavern Brawls. You are limited to earning 100 gold per day in this way. Most new players start earning some gold each day by playing Basic or Budget decks for either the Mage or Hunter classes since it's easier to build an effective deck for these classes with a minimal amount or resources. Here are some deck lists for you to consider: ... ... 12) If you are completely new to games like Hearthstone, then you might want to watch some basic guides, like Trump's Teachings, to learn how to play better: 13) Since only two of any card (or only one of a Legendary) can be used in a deck, you can disenchant extra copies of cards to get a resource called Arcane Dust, which can be used to craft cards that you want You can disenchant or craft cards by going into "My Collection" and right-clicking on the card to bring up the disenchanting option. To see and craft cards that you do not own any of, you must hit the "Crafting" button on the bottom right side of the page. The first time you disenchant a card you will get an extra 95 dust from completing Crafting Time. 14) Do not become invested into collecting golden cards. Golden cards are purely cosmetic, and the limit of two of a card per deck or one of a Legendary card per deck is not affected by golden versions, which makes it safe to DE extra golden cards. Extra golden cards yield a lot more dust when disenchanted than normal cards do, and overtime this increased amount of dust can really help to improve your card collection. Since Standard now receives three new expansions of cards per year along with a rotation of old sets into Wild, most players are never going to field very many golden cards in their Standard decks, so my advice to new players is to just not care about sparkly cards and to DE your extra golden cards for bonus dust to make it easier to craft more cards and to build better decks. DEing extra golden cards means that a player will have greater access to cards and decks for a smaller investment of time or money. 15) Try to get to at least Rank 20 on the Ladder (in Ranked mode) before the end of each month to start earning card backs and other rewards: 16) Be aware that there are some great sites for learning about Hearthstone: 17) Once you know that you really like Hearthstone and you can see yourself playing the game a lot, give yourself a leg-up on growing your card collection by buying two of the best values that the game has to offer: a) The Welcome Bundle for $4.99 gives a player ten Classic packs and one Classic class Legendary (a 400 or 1600 dust value, depending if you already have or want the card in your collection)--so by itself, the Classic Class Legendary is a value of around 4-16 packs. b)The Pre-Purchase bundles (when available) for new expansions are one of the better values and they normally cost around $49.99 for 50 packs, and they usually include a nice looking card back: c) If you want to go crazy with spending, there is a third good value, and that is to buy the solo adventure Kharazhan for $19.99. Be aware that it's not necessary to buy anything to enjoy Hearthstone. Many players pride themselves for being Free-to-Play (F2P) players who slowly grind gold and packs to develop their card collections or decks. Although some players like to make a few smart purchases to support the game and to quickly gather some resources so they can can experiment with a greater diversity of classes and decks. Which player you are is for you to decide. 18) Be aware that there are two general formats: Wild and Standard. Any card that you own can be played in Wild, while Standard decks may only include cards from sets released in the previous two calendar years. In April of 2018, when the first 2018 expansion goes live, Whispers of the Old Gods (April 2016), One Night in Karazhan (August 2016) and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan (December 2016) will all rotate out of Standard. If you read this far, I hope that you found the above information to be helpful! Enjoy Hearthstone and good luck! --ZeeZee11 Dec 3

Dec 3 Matchmaking I’m sitting here trying to play this game as a new player and I realize this game sucks. Level 1 hero with limited class cards facing advanced decks full of rare and epic cards when I have opened only a handful of packs. I rarely see standard decks against my standard deck and I’m left constantly frustrated trying to compete. Do the devs not want new players in this game? I’m realizing there are no other new players I play against because of this barrier to entry. Complete waste of time on this pay to win game.Malgnar5 Dec 3
