Guaranteed Legendary

Community Discussion
I’ve seen somewhere a post referring to something Ben Brode said regarding guaranteed legendary card, and I don’t want to create a duplicate post, but I can’t find the original one nor the answer to my question. So, the question is - when we’re buying card packs, are we guaranteed to get a legendary card from the very first 10 packs? I believe that is the case with K&C because I did get a legendary. However, I’m wondering - what about previous expansions? If I buy 10 Knights of the Frozen Throne or 10 Journey to Un’Goro packs am I guranteed to get at least one legendary card?
Update: I’ve opened several packs on my F2P account and I’ve got Edwin VanCleef, Al’Akir and Anomalus from the Classic and the Old Gods packs.
since im a new player im gona do the same for old gods and gadzestan til its not too late. sadly i didnt know about this option when i bought my first bundle so i was opening packs randomly...
I believe you are guaranteed a Legendary in the first 10 packs you open in a new set. It is sticking in my mind that it is only for the sets from Un'Goro forward, but can't find anything to back that up.

Dont buy those packs. They will be off for Standart. U should buy Un`Goro, Frozen Knights, K&C, or the new expansion....

Un'Goro was around the time they changed it to be the guaranteed Legendary in first 10 packs thing. However, they made that rule apply to previous sets as well :-)
To be clear the guaranteed legendary is for the FIRST 10 packs of any set..... so if you previously opened packs from an expansion then it no longer applies to that set and it's on the regular (unconfirmed but real) 40 pack pity timer.

Thanks for the answers and help!

Along with getting a legendary in your first 10 packs, there was also the change where you will no longer get a duplicate legendary from a set until you own all of them.

Good call out Mao. :)

I wouldn't say "don't buy" older sets. Just be aware of upcoming set rotations and changes so you are purchasing the packs that best fit your needs!

This means that you have already gotten your one guaranteed legendary for that particular expansion of packs. It is not a promise to get 1 legendary EVERY 10 packs, just in your first ten for that expansion. Anything after that first legendary is luck, just like rolling a dice, flipping a coin, scratching a lottery ticket, etc. Best of luck on your future packs!
