What's New in Version 8.4.20022
In this Hearthstone Update we’re making a balance change to The Caverns Below and opening pre-purchase for Knights of the Frozen Throne, Hearthstone’s next expansion. We’re also changing the type of some minions, adding more card backs, and fixing several bugs.
Read on for details!
*Pre-purchase for Knights of the Frozen Throne, Hearthstone’s latest expansion, is now available! You can pre-purchase 50 card packs and get the Frostmourne card back for $49.99 USD.
**The Caverns Below now reads: Quest: Play five minions with the same name. Reward: Crystal Core.
**The Caverns Below is uniquely powerful versus several slower, control-oriented decks and is played often enough to push those decks out of play. While deck diversity in Ranked Play is good, a change to The Caverns Below was still warranted to help keep that trend going into the future.
**The Caverns Below can now be disenchanted for full Arcane Dust value until July 24 PDT.
**Note: Neutral cards form the basis for draft appearance rates.
**On average, Arena runs consist of 60% Common, 28% Rare, 10% Epic, and about 2% Legendary cards.
**Class minions are +100% more common than neutral cards.
**Class Spells and Weapons are +175% more common than neutral cards.
**Journey to Un'Goro cards receive an additional +50% increase in their appearance rate.
**The following cards are unavailable in arena
***Jungle Giants, The Marsh Queen, Open the Waygate, The Last Kaleidosaur, Awaken the Makers, The Caverns Below, Unite the Murlocs, Lakkari Sacrifice, Fire Plume’s Heart, Klaxxi Amber Weaver, Dark Arakkoa, Cult Sorcerer, Hooded Acolyte, Twilight Darkmender, Blade of C’Thun, Usher of Souls, Ancient Shieldbearer, Twilight Geomancer, Disciple of C’Thun, Twilight Elder, C’Thun’s Chosen, Crazed Worshipper, Skeram Cultist, Twin Emperor Vek’lor, Doomcaller, C’Thun, Dust Devil, Totemic Might, Ancestral Healing, Windspeaker, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons, Void Crusher, Succubus, Savagery, Soul of the Forest, Mark of Nature, Warsong Commander, Rampage, Starving Buzzard, Timber Wolf, Snipe, Mind Blast, Lightwell, Purify and Inner Fire.
**Flamestrike, Abyssal Enforcer, and Vicious Fledgling will appear in drafts 50% less often.
**Popular cards had small drop rate changes to address class balance concerns. (Note - These changes range from 1-5%. They are small enough that they are unlikely to be noticed during an individual draft, but should have enough cumulative impact to help improve class balance.)
**We’re working to improve the Arena experience, and your feedback is always appreciated!
*The following minions are now Elementals:
**Jade Spirit, Djinni of Zephyrs, Flame of Azzinoth, Mana Geode, and Hallazeal, the Ascended.
*Added the following card backs:
**Frostmourne – Acquired from the Knights of the Frozen Throne pre-purchase bundle.
**HearthS’mores – Acquired from achieving Rank 20 in Ranked Play, July 2017.
*Fixed an issue that could cause Hearthstone to freeze when closing.
*Fixed some visual issues associated with Deck Importing.
Best virtual TCG out there.
I have played them all; MTG online, Shadowverse, URBAN Rivals, Fantastica, Shadow Era etc. but Hearthstone is hands down the best. It's well developed, beautiful and highly addicting. Unlike many free games in the market, Hearthstone is one you can actually play for free and not actually suffer for it. Now, the game has been out for a while and it will take some time and patience for a new player to collect all the cards needed to make a top tier deck while playing free, but it IS possible. I have been playing this game since it's beta and The latest expansion (Journey to Un'goro Crater) is definitely one of my favorite expansions, if not my top favorite. The game is constantly being updated because blizzard cares about the player base. (Although I'm sure many people would disagree with me on that.) I recommend this game to anyone who wants a fun strategy game to play, even if you have never played a TCG before in your life.
The only gripe I have is the sheer size of the game. It's massive and there is no easy way to download updates. You have to basically uninstall then reinstall the entire game for one patch.
Best Card Game
Hearthstone is by far the most genius card game ever made. Coming from someone who has never been a fan of card games, the fact that your collection is digital and easily accessible is huge. The game is simple and easy to pick up. However the game starts getting fun once you have a good collection of cards to build decks off of. Many people complain that this game is 'pay to win' which is not true. If you can't put out some money to fully experience a free game then that is your problem. As with any card game you are going to want to put some money if you want better decks. Blizzard needs to make money somehow so complaining about having to spend money is just unbelievable to me.
Great if you want to spend $100 to actually compete
This game used to be great when it came out and everyone was on a similar playing field. Lots of cards you've never seen, new expansions brought new strategy and fun. I quit for a while and came back (had to start from scratch unfortunately) and every single person I play now is stacked with legendary cards, even at level 20 and below.
Players automatically lose matches to lower their rank. 50% of players have the card to automatically add 5 legendary cards to their deck at the start of the match. I have 0 in my entire collection after playing for a week. I know I'll get some and I know it takes time and of course I win some games but if you don't want to pay lots of money then be prepared to get frustrated and stomped by most legendary loaded decks.
