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 www.Battle.net, 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 Facebook.com/PlayHearthstone 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, Battle.net, 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
1h Starting Out ^^'' So i just started out on hearthstone, I've watched a set of tutorials a friend sent me it was on the basics of the game to help me get a nice understanding i was just curious what is a good way to start out so far i have unlocked all 9 classes and went into the frozen throne place my death knight was the mage one and from my first few free packs i opened a legendary a 1/1 spell damage when he dies draw a card unsure if it's any good (his name escapes me ^^'') also i would love more friends on asia ^^'' sooo adds me :3 edits: oops i forgot my tag thing BlueAngel#1720BlueAngel6 1h
4h Add Friends Here! For any new players out there wandering on this post, here's a bit of a rundown as to what this simple post is for. This post is to help other players communicate with others in a simple way, by just posting their battle tags on this forum and adding other players who do so! It's a very simple and easy way to add friends. So if you ever have a quest such as: "Play with a friend for 80 Gold!" or "Spectate a friend for a free card pack!" Then this is your go to! So just simply post and add battle tags! VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're new to this post, it would be most effective to jump to the very last page and find friends there, many people who had posted have unfortunately become unactive, so if you're looking for more active players, newest and recent pages and posts are the best way to go.Tyson5559 4h
5h What to do about Patches? I recently obtained Patches from an opened pack, and was wondering what to do with him. It’s been too long since the nerf, so I'll only get 400 dust for him. I'm apprehensive about doing so. I'm not sure that only getting back ¼ crafting cost is worth it. I'm not sure about his current power level either. If anyone could tell me whether or not he's worth more in a wild deck or as dust, I would greatly appreciate it.ChuckMorris2 5h
14h Should I wait to buy a Gadgetzan card? By the time-table they've release so far, I'm assuming the next expansion is going to release in April 2018. Does this mean that the Old gods and the Gadgetzan sets will be rotating into the wild or just the Old Gods? There are a couple cards I want from the Gadgetzan set, but I don't want to waste the dust if it's only for two months.Irish2 14h
16h Pala Tirion Bolvar Hi guys, Been playing the game for 2 months or so, mainly playing control mage and inner priest. After my purchase of the mammoth pack and few packs earned with gold, I ended up with Tirion and Bolvar (had Val'anyr from earlier). It might sound obvious, but a deck can welcome both those cards right? They have the divine shield complementarity as well as other minions in deck. My question would be about the next cards I might craft to fit right with those. Should I go all divine shield ? Thx !MEX2 16h
18h The Cool Replays Thread Okay, so my first attempt at this got chewed up in the gears of the forum. Hopefully, this one survives. Sometimes, this game is pretty fun. So, anyone with a deck tracker can keep a record times when this game is actually a lot of fun. That's what this thread is for. A nice little reminder that you can have fun playing this game. So, if any of you guys have Hearthstone Deck Tracker, I'd love to take a look at some of the most fun games you've ever played. I'd like to start off with a series of games that I played against Ariel yesterday. This was a tournament style format with 4 decks, 1 ban and each of the remaining decks needing to win a game. Also, the idea was that we'd build something pretty crazy to make it more fun. I'd be interested to hear what you guys thought of the games. Or if you want to play against either of us. Or, if you want to call me out as a hypocrite for advising people to save up dust and then crafting The Darkness a week later for one game in which it didn't even get played, that's a thing you can do too. Here's the games: Creeper Hunter vs Finja and Friends Rogue https://hsreplay.net/replay/4wNbXGdpT6hjeR7DXkBnGQ N'Zoth Rogue is Good? vs Ariel's Slower Token Druid https://hsreplay.net/replay/MdChmkEG9rnSGeBaUfUeAT Creeper Hunter vs Ariel's N'zakus Mage https://hsreplay.net/replay/m7y9NTFF2jiqthJFxdz87D Obligatory YGO Reference Mage vs Ariel's N'Zakus Mage https://hsreplay.net/replay/ZTkTZitUgNVbo6FJeqVRrY N'Zoth Rogue totally works guys vs Ariel's N'zakus Mage https://hsreplay.net/replay/7U3csNuphmbuYBCe3nQfkD Bonus Game Marin Loves C'thun Priest vs Value'nyr Paladin https://hsreplay.net/replay/eTZV5PyHSu9WeYPkJ69q4b My Decks for these games: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1028600-creeper-burst-damage http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1028601-nzoth-rogue-is-good http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1028602-dark-magician-girl http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1028604-marin-loves-cthunSprocket23 18h
18h Paladin Deck evaluation! Hello! I started playing Hearthstone a year ago and have recently gotten back into the game. I got a bunch of free packs for being away so long, so I built a weenie deck. Other than adding the legendary Sunkeeper Tarim once I have enough essence; I can't think of any changes to make my deck better. So far in ranked I have only had trouble with hunters. Should I change anything about my deck? Weenie: 2*Lost in the Jungle 2*Righteous Protector 2*Worgen Infiltrator 2*Drygulch Jailor 1*Equality 2*Knife Juggler 2*Benevolent Djinn 1*Bloodknight 1*Divine Favor 2*Stoneskin Basilisk 1*Unidentified Maul 1*Call to Arms 1*Consecration 2*Lightfused Stegodon 2*Sen'jin Shieldmasta 2*Truesilver Champion 1*Carniverous Cube 1*Avenging Wrath 1*Crystal Lion 1*Uther of the Ebon Blade Tell me what you think!REDisPOWER4 18h
19h Need help with shaman decks So I decided to main shaman and Hunter. I had a strong shaman deck that got me to rank 17 (didn't use old God's or gadget) and I am worried with the rotation coming that shaman will be the weakest class in the meta if the new year expansion doesn't bring good shaman cards I been doing quests every few days to collect my 13-40 dust and I bought the 3 lastest card sets. I feel like I am useless as a shaman because old God's and gadgetzon have so many good shaman cards. Will shaman be alright with the next expansion ? Should I main a different hero ? I also main Hunter and use dust to get epic Hunter cards. Ty.Antony5 19h
1d Friends on Asia Server Hi guys, I've been playing hearthstone for about 6 months now and have noticed that most of the time, it's usually the players on EU and NA that get to do all the fun stuff like adding friends, doing battle with friends etc. This is simply because there's a lot more of them out there. But if you play on Asia, then please feel welcome to use this post as a means to add each other, us Asia players need to stick together. My battletag is Latios#1349, I'm happy to battle, help out with any quests or so on, feel free to add me if you play on the Asia server.Latios5 1d
1d Need better hunter decks in tavern What's with all the priest love. Hunter decks need a redesign badly to compete. The current deck is poorly designed as a fast attack deck but has at no capacity for it, and no real back up plan. Attack fast blast opponent with all spells and pray. Not very effective. Please redesign it.Saoaosa1 1d
1d Frustration and how to deal with it? Greetings, Like many, i play to have fun but also to win some games..and so is my opponent i'd hope. I have a very simple question for you all. I had a game earlier where everything i played got Easily countered by my opponent, arcane shot...huffer...kill command..double knife jugglers hitting the exact right target 4 times. Naturally i lost that game, Due to RNG is what i take away from this. How do you NOT tilt when your opponent defeats you at every turn? I'm starting to doubt that it is even possible..?Tyani45 1d
1d Corrupt gaming? Why other players can play their own decks in tavern brawls but I have to roll with some random gibberish? WTF?Aivarioha7 1d
1d Replacing cards which I dont have from net decks Hello everyone. I am a new player and I am in a bit of a predicament. The problem is that I have quite some good cards since I bought the mammoth bundle but I am confused as to which cards should I add instead of the cards which I dont have from the internet decks. Or to put it simply, "How do I merge the cards which i own with the internet decks for the cards which I dont have". Thank you.LeProdigy18 1d
1d What Should I Be Spending My Gold On? As a new player, what should I be spending my gold on? I first bought packs with the quick gold I originally got. Now my gold I accumulate has slowed down a tiny bit and I've also experienced my first play of Arena during which I got a pack and something else. So, should I just be playing Arena? I only won twice my first play and lost my 3 other games and I still got a pack. Is that normal? Seems the prize quality is very high with even only a small investment.TeenageEars12 1d
1d Trading 80 Gold Quest Looking for someone else with 80 gold quest so we can both get 160 gold. Thanks! Add me: Frigidcold#1551Frigidcold137 1d
2d Buy karazhan or packs as karazhan rotates out for new player. I am a new player..playing for two month or so... I have bought welcome and mammoth bundle...and I do plan to play wild in the future. Should I buy karazhan or buy packs from old gods or classic? My question is since these are going to rotate out and I shall never be able to get those cards( maybe old gods is craftable for a lot of dust...I would rather buy packs before than being that inefficient)...but karazhan cards are non craftable as it is. So if I plan to play wild in future...should I get karazhan or is it optional? I mean to say since I have missed on previous all adventures already...would I feel too crippled in wild if I dont have karazhan as well?Egghead2 2d
2d New Player/ FTP Player Manual Was thinking of creating a 'New Player Manual' type thing for new and FTP people. I've been playing for just under two years (between Old Gods & Mean Streets). I open around 100-120 packs each expansion. Would there be an interest, in play style, tactics, and tips? (Purpose of this post, before I put in all the work.)JGallywix7 2d
2d Recommended neutral cards to craft from the Year of the Mammoth sets for new Hearthstone players Hi, So I'm new to Hearthstone (since late December 2017) and have earned a few packs over the last 2 months and run in to the problem of duplicates (and hence have dust) and would like to know which neutral cards to craft from the Year of the Mammoth sets for new Hearthstone players, which might be useful in many decks/for various heroes. Most of the advice I've read out there includes lots of cards which will be rotating into Wild in April 2018 as I understand, which I don't feel it would be very efficient for me to craft now to play Standard. I mostly play Secret Mage and Hunter, but actually I play whatever class the quest for the day is, so anything is possible. Thanks for your help!Schmaehgol7 2d
3d Fascinating 2 months playing. Casual - no problems. Ranked - middle of the month and I still cannot win one ranked match past 21 one star - not one for the last 12 days - and rarely get to round 5 before being totally annihilated with the opponent on above 25 health and me on 0. How do you create such a polarised, second class citizen gaming experience? It deserves awards and global recognition no matter how or if we can actually find any reason other than ponying up cash. It is so bad it is magnificent and beyond admiration and I am of a mind just to send Blizzard cash for nothing in return just to show my appreciation.Halo57217 3d
3d Abuse Have any of you received abuse? I destroyed an opponent basically I am running a budget miracle rogue setup instead of Edwin I use questing Adventurer. Instead of thalnos I run a kobold geomancer.... During the game i managed to lay down two auctioneers and buffed up my questing adventurer with two cold blood to like 20/20 He didn't have an answer so got destroyed.... I then received a friend request and he moaned I was using a cheat deck? He played as preist am I right in saying preist has options to counter the above move..... Anyone else had abuse?Knightslayer6 3d
3d Pre paid credit cards So can you use them in hearthstone. Those visa/mastercard pre paid gift cards?squid558015 3d
4d Need Friends in Hearthstone. Need Friends in Hearthstone. Battletag: LitChava#6712 Region: NA Usual Play Times: Random! Level of Experience: beginner Preferred Heroes: trying all heroes at the moment I’m Looking For: just people to play with, To learn from and to do quest.LitChava49 4d

4d Beginner Tutorial: Hunter Hey guys! I write a blog about Hearthstone, and this week's post is for beginners! Today's post covers which cards you want to craft once you've unlocked the Hunter! Come see! TradeorFace.blogspot.comAlcone1 4d
5d Can't run two clients at once... There are several guides that show how to do it but it doesn't work for me for some reason. After one client launches I do not get to press the "play" button again because it's unavailable. Checked that the compatibility options are set to Service Pack 2 Windows XP and blizzard net options are enabled for multiple instances. Any ideas?Aivarioha5 5d
5d PSA: New Players Maximize Wildfest! ... Source: https://news.blizzard.com/en-us/hearthstone/21492187/wildfest-is-coming Whenever Hearthstone hosts one of these special Arena events, they will automatically retire any existing unfinished run that you have saved, and when they retire your run, they will dispense any earned rewards, based on the run's saved progress, and they will compensate you with an Arena Voucher, which is good for one free Arena entry. The devs provide such compensation to avoid upsetting players who had a really good draft saved. It's a smart way to handle such events. A similar thing happens when special Arena events like Wildfest come to an end. Any special Arena drafts are retired, prizes are dispensed, based the run's progress, and a free Arena Voucher is given out to compensate for retiring the run. A smart way to maximize the benefits of these Arena events is to leave an unfinished draft (with two losses in place) for when the event starts and one another draft (with two losses in place) for when the event ends. By doing this you effectively get two extra Arena drafts because of the event. Under such a system, even players who do not normally enjoy playing Arena, or those players that are not very good at Arena, are encouraged to play Arena, because of the additional benefits and wackiness that the event has to offer. Anyways, get prepared for Wildfest! Reap the maximum rewards, and have fun!Zee22 5d
6d Zee's HS Guide for Brand New Players: Getting Started: Choose your server/region carefully! So you have downloaded Hearthstone and logged into the game on one of the three possible servers (Americas, Europe or Asia). Please note that the cards that you acquire on a particular server are only available to use on that server, so choose your server carefully. You can play on all three servers, but the cards earned while playing on a specific server are not available for use when you log into another region. Recruit-a-Friend: If you are brand new to Hearthstone, you should take advantage of the "Recruit-a-Friend" promotion, before you have accumulated 20 total character levels, so that you can earn a free pack of cards (once you have completed the six tutorial missions). Use this Recruit-a-Friend link for the Americas server: https://battle.net/recruit/PM7QSC9DPH?blzcmp=raf-hs&s=HS&m=pc For the EU server, you may use this Recruit-a-Friend link: https://battle.net/recruit/HVDDGJ8V69?blzcmp=raf-hs&s=HS&m=pc For the Asia server, you may use this Recruit-a-Friend link: https://battle.net/recruit/ZCFJ8MZ9WZ?blzcmp=raf-hs&s=HS&m=pc Official Details for Recruit-a-Friend Promotion: https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/recruit-a-friend http://us.battle.net/hearthstone/en/community/recruit-a-friend You must activate the Recruit-a-Friend link before you have obtained 20 combined character levels on your account in order to be eligible for the reward! You do the promotion to earn one free pack. You can earn the Morgl the Oracle Shaman portrait or additional free packs by recruiting up to four friends of your own to participate in the program. Note: the recruit activation will only work if both accounts share the same server or geographical region (Americas, Europe, or Asia). Also, check out my list of tips or my HS tips for brand new players: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/hearthstone/topic/20749225595#post-1 The Traditional F2P Approach to Starting Hearthstone: Begin playing Hearthstone by: 1) Complete the 6 tutorial missions, because there is no way around this. 2) Next, use the default F2P Mage deck to unlock all the Hero classes by playing in "Normal" Practice Mode (found in the "Solo Adventures" section). While doing this, you will complete the quest "Win 5 Practice Games" to earn a pack reward. Open the pack reward, and if you get anything good, go to "My Collection, and edit it into your deck. At the end of a match, you may get a prompt telling you that you have unlocked two "Frostbolt" cards. If that happens, go to "My Collection," and select your Mage deck to edit your deck-list. Remove the 2x Arcane Explosion cards and add 2x Frostbolt cards to your deck. I would also replace the two Bloodfen Raptor with two Acidic Swamp Ooze. Next, continue to play the AI until you have completed the quest "Win 5 Practice Games," which will then trigger the appearance of your next quest, which is called "First Blood." To complete the First Blood quest go play one game against a human player in Casual (which has a kinder matchmaking system for new players) or Ranked "Play Mode." It does not matter if you win or lose this game. Open the pack reward, and if you get anything good, put it into your deck. If you have completed the quest "First Blood," then you will have received a new quest called called "The Duelist." Now would be a good time to go play three more games in Casual or Ranked play mode to earn another pack reward. Again, it does not matter if you win or lose these three games. Open the pack reward, and if you get anything good, put it into your deck. 3) Once you have completed all of step 2, your Mage will probably be between level 6 and 10, depending on how efficient you were at beating the AI Heroes. At level 8, your mage deck can be further edited to remove 2x Oasis Snapjaw in order to add 2x Frost Elemental to your deck. Once your Mage has reached level 10, you will have earned a free pack of cards from completing the achievement "Level Up." 4) At this point, you should have 200 gold or more saved up, and you can now spend your gold to buy some packs from the store. Classic packs are usually the best packs for new players to purchase. With luck, you might get something good from your packs to help further improve your Mage deck or the deck of some other class. 5) Next, level at least one Hero to level 20 so that you can participate in the "Tavern Brawl" mode each week to earn a free pack from your first TB win for that week's Brawl. One easy way to do this ^ is by using a Hero to beat all the AI classes in Expert mode or by playing against human players in Casual or Ranked mode or by doing Dungeon Runs, or even using do the Karzhan Prologue to level the Mage class. 6) Next, go level all your other Heroes to level 10 while playing against the AI (I usually do this in Expert mode) or against human players in Casual or Ranked play mode. Edit: Karazhan is a Solo Adventure, and it's possible to do the first wing for free in order to earn 2x Enchanted Raven (a Druid card) and 2x Firelands Portal (a Mage card). Firelands Portal is a great card to edit into a new Mage deck.[/b]Zee38 6d
6d Which of these should I disenchant? Hello guys, I've started playing hearthstone a few days ago, and thanks to new players' luck I opened some legendaries. The problem is I'm not sure which of those should I disenchant to collect some dust I could make a starter deck of. Here are the options: - Twig of The World Tree (Druid) - Frost Lich Jaina (Mage) - Dragon Soul (Priest) - Bloodmage Thalnos (Neutral) - Ysera (Neutral) As far as the class choices go, I'm not concerned about which I would prefer the most. I want to keep my "flexibility" between various decks and classes, not rooting myself to a specific class or deck until I find the one(s) I like.I only want to disenchant the ones that really doesn't worth keeping. By that I mean it's place in the current meta and the potential of being strong in the future is relatively low. I also wonder whether if it's worth it to disenchant gold common and standard epic cards, since they only give me a fraction of what a legendary would. I appreciate any kind of advice that a starter player could take advantage of! Cheers!Husgomboc1233 6d
6d Help for a new deck Hi everybody, In the last month i basically played Zoolock (Demon and, after nerfs, fungalmancer list) and midrange/face hunter (but i'm not having success with it in February). Basically i got bored of these lists and i want to craft a new deck that should be effective (I want to play it around rank 10), cheap and a safe investment. Searching on Hearthpwn i found Dudelin, Murlocadin and Spiteful priest. Are these decks a good choice? What do you suggest me to do? Thanks in advanceXxFhExX2 6d
6d how to spend gold as a f2p? Most people say classic packs. Someone said mammoth packs because you get something in your first 10 packs? Can someone confirm is this true and what's that all about? Thanks in advance.Aivarioha9 6d
6d A few questions for a newer player. Well, I'm only a short six months into Hearthstone and so now I'm finally utilizing resources like the forums, hsreplays and Tempostorm to pursue more strategies and various decks. I'd like to go through a few questions as I try to ascertain more information. First things first, there's sort of a compendium of terms that I have a hard time familiarizing myself with as it seems all players use certain terms often but in incredibly different circumstances and the Unofficial Glossary doesn't cover them. Terms like Teching, Netdeck and others I can't find definitions that apply to the content people express them in. For now, I'll stick with what is Teching/Netdecks? Secondly, how often does a new expansion come out relatively? I looked up expansions through a wiki and it seems to be between three-six months but is there a variant to this and how often in advance do they allow pre-orders for packs? And I suppose to follow-up, how often do they release updates to change the current meta like we saw with Bonemare/Corridor Creeper etc.? Finally, if there's any discords out there that might help me prepare a better arena deck and maybe discuss strategies involving current standard play, I would love an invite or maybe a friend request. Thanks and best regards.Jakkt5 6d

Feb 14 new player experience is TERRIBLE Im fairly new to the game, whenever i que myself up in ranked or even casual, i always have a hard time to win because my cards are very limited, i keep getting matched with people with multiple legendaries in their decks; i mean come on!, razakus priests and big spell mages on rank 21? while new players like me still play 2 copies of chillwind yeti in our deck. The same goes for casual mode, there are A LOT of gold farmers with their shiny golden potraits and their optimized decks. Dont get me wrong, i DONT expect everything to be free, i love progression, but if blizzard want us to grind 5-6 hours a day just to get our gold capped, then i definetely will walk away from this game. (5-6 hours is NO exaggeration) i think the game developer should que themselves on ranked with a basic f2p deck and have a taste of how painful the new player experience is. Inb4 somebody tell me to learn how to play better, im am very good in card games. I have 8+ years experience in yugioh and MTG, and their difficulty is astronomical compared to hearthstone. So please dont reply with the usual "git gud" response.Yusufarzz21 Feb 14
Feb 14 Good Hunter Deck lvl 24? So I was kind of hopping in and out of the game for ages, but now I'm really starting to get into it, but I have literally no clue what kind of deck is good. I've got a custom Hunter deck I like to play that works alright, but idk if there is some really important thing I need in it?LukeZekes5 Feb 14
Feb 14 Remove it plz Just like I wrote before couldn't find the topic I made but to add to it. It's so damn unhealthy to keep it in the game. I got so frustrated I started griefing other players in other games and insulting people that have nothing to do with this.Aivarioha1 Feb 14
