You can purchase Card Packs, Adventures and alternate Heroes in the in-game Hearthstone® Shop. Whether you shop on a computer or on a mobile device, your Hearthstone purchases and progress are shared across any device where you log in using your Blizzard account.
OPENING CARD PACKS
Opening a pack in Hearthstone adds five cards to your collection. There are rules in place to make sure your pack opening experience is exciting.
Note: The below rules do not apply to Mini Sets. Mini Sets are bundles of specific cards. Mini Sets are not card packs and are not subject to randomness. If a Mini Set includes cards you already own, you will still receive those cards.
Card Rarity Rates
- Rare Cards: Each card pack contains at least one rare card or better.
- Epic Cards: One epic card can be obtained in five card packs on average.
- Legendary Cards: One Legendary card is guaranteed within the first 10 packs of a new card expansion. Subsequent Legendary cards can be obtained in 20 card packs on average.
Obtaining Multiple Copies of the Same Card
You will not receive more than one copy of a Legendary card, until you have owned all the Legendary cards in that card expansion. Similarly, you will not receive more than two copies of any Common, Rare, or Epic card until you have owned two copies of all cards of that rarity in that card expansion.
Crafting a card counts towards owning it, and any cards you disenchant (whether golden or non-golden) count as well. This means that if you get a card that you don’t want, you can disenchant it and you will not receive it again until you have all cards of that rarity from that card expansion.
