Any advice on which legendary to craft frist?

7 posts in this topic

So this is are my decks so far after playing for 4 moths. I have gotten only 1 legengary from packs and I'm no good doing arena to get more gold, dust or "free" packs. So I would like to see in which legendaries I should have priority with those decks. I know Dr.Boom should be the first one at least. Any other tips?

 

Here are the decks I'm using http://imgur.com/WDT04sI

 

I know Ramp Druid and Tempo Mage are missing some card that aren't legendaries and need more work.

The main one I see would be, like you said, Dr. Boom. Sylvanas would be another good one after Boom. Others to consider would be: Ysera, Malygos, Ragnaros, Harrison Jones, and the Black Knight. As far as class specific I would go with Archmage Antonidas and Grommash.

Firstly, your decks need refining. No matter how many legendaries you slap in them, you still won't be able to reach legend ranks. Good deck without legendaries > Bad deck with legendaries. I am mainly referring to your tempo mage with blizzards and ramp druid with all kinds of cards. 

 

Secondly, crafting a legendary is a huge investment. You spend 1600 dust to craft something you might not even draw. For 1600 dust you could get 4 and drawing at least one of them is way more probable. Your priority should be something like this: strong and needed epics (such as FoN), then Boom, then rest of epics and then rest of legendaries. Also, you should focus on building only one deck at a time. Having multiple good-ish decks is worse for ladder than one very powerful deck.

If your goal is to move up the ladder as quickly as possible, then I would follow positiv2's suggestion to focus on one deck at a time. This is wise for two main reasons:

 

1) Building one deck at a time will be quicker then slowly piecing together multiple decks. You can disenchant the cards you don't need for that deck to quickly craft the cards you do need. The potential drawback here is that you may disenchant cards you later want, and crafting them later would be an inefficient use of your gold. However, you can still focus on one deck at a time without disenchanting cards. Just save up your dust for those deck-specific cards whether they be legendary, epic, rare, or even common.

 

2) Playing one deck at a time will enable you to become very familiar with that deck. Practice is the key to mastering a deck, so the more you play it the better you will do on ladder. Jumping from deck to deck will allow you to become good at multiple decks, but you will likely master none of them.

 

If your goal is to simply complete your daily quests efficiently while having fun, and you are not worried about moving up the ladder, there is nothing wrong with building and playing multiple decks at a time. I actually fit this category. My time spent on Hearthstone is limited, so when I'm on I just want to finish my quests as soon as possible. I also find it more fun to play multiple decks. So contrary to my advice above, I always jump from deck to deck. I haven't mastered any decks, and I've never reached legend, but I have good decks in most of the classes and have a good win percentage on ladder. If you also fit this category and want good decks across all or most of the classes, you can start with aggressive decks. They generally don't need legendary cards, so you can build multiple aggressive decks across multiple classes without waiting to save tons of dust.

Those that came before me gave good advice. A good piece of advice I can offer you is scrap the patron deck. With the loss of Warsong Commander its viability has been reduced greatly. Another thing to is your decks need refining and you seem to be missing many other powerful cards that must come before legendaries. An example of this is Ancient of Lore for Druid; I can't tell you how important this card is for ramp decks. As for a first legendary to craft there is really only one option.

 

Dr. Boom is always the #1 legendary to craft first if you don't have him. He is without a doubt the best seven drop in the game at the moment because of the pressure he puts on your opponent especially if the board is in your favor. Another great thing about him is that he is neutral and can be put in any deck. Be aware though he is succeptible to BGH and bad rng but every card, even legendaries, have their unavoidable weaknesses. This is why it is important to get the staple rares and epics first because a well built deck and playing smart are more important than throwing down big scary things.

 

First and foremost follow the above posters advice to pick one class you like playing the most and stick with that one. After that find the staple rares and epics that class uses for the concept your trying to achieve with that deck, ex. PLD decks always use Muster for Battle. After you have achieved this then focus on getting Dr. Boom and the class legendaries for your class.

Positiv2 on point as always. My response was more of giving him the list of legendaries that had the most value.

Would definitely choose Dr Boom as my first choice for legendary - it seems a staple card of nearly every deck of every class, there seems to be hardly ever a bad time to play it and you will nearly always get great value from it - whereas other great legendaries such as Silvanas can be amazing if played against big powerful minions - but poor value if put down facing against a board packed full of low value minions for example.

      Howdy, everybody! So with the release of Legion, I thought I'd make a more updated guide to the basics of the warrior class in World of Warcraft. I did this because my old guide was about 2 years old and was made when MoP was still current! Crazy, I know. But nonetheless, I made the guide so that I could help new warriors learn the fundamentals of their class. It covers stuff such as the resource that the Warrior uses, how it's generated, what is common among the specializations,  the benefits of choosing different races for your warrior (takes up the majority of the video's time), and much more! And if this video is able to help even one person out there learn and understand the warrior a little better, it will have been worth making. The video is about 20 minutes long, so grab a drink and/or snack and enjoy the video!  :D

      Hello together,
      I just came back to playing after a huge break. Basically everyone told me not to play affliction warlock in legion, so I did anyways hehe =(
      Ofc I am in a very weak spot now, thank god I have a guild who I can raid with anyways.
      My main issue now is: regardless of the weak affliction-specc. Simulation-.-craft.org tells me I can reach 230k DPS. Is this buffed (flask,food etc) because there is no way I can reach this. I can reach like 150k (no buffood,flask etc).
      edit: btw I'm not letting dots run out; my gear has the right stats etc 
      Second issue: No matter what talents I choose -> the outcame is only a minor difference. I am struggling with the use of contagion and soul effigy (here I don't know which dots i keep going - 35% dmg / global cooldown effectiveness?) because of the much RNG I get (shard generation + soulproccs of artifact).
      It feels smoother to just go for absolute corruption and soul conduit because I can just use shards+souls together without hoping for frequent proccs of both simultaniously.
      Glad I take all advice you can give me.
      + I just hope for another big patch of course. But I guess none is coming before few weeks of raiding. 
      Sincere regards a PvE-newcomer/comeback amateur hehe :(

      So recently, I uploaded a guide to YouTube that helps new Warriors learn how to play the class. It covers many topics such as choosing a race, the rage system, helpful addons, and much more. I built this guide with the intention to help new warriors out there that may be struggling with their class and need a guide to get them started. If you have any comments, questions, corrections, ideas, or (constructive) criticisms, then leave them in the comment section of the video as I will see them much sooner there and be able to provide a faster response.
      If you enjoy the video, please remember to leave a like as it helps me out! Thank you!  :D

      I have recently picked up Hearthstone, my previous TCG experience being limited to Magic the Gathering. Now that I have leveled all the nine characters to level 10 to unlock their basic class specific cards it is time to decide which character to develop primarily, and, even more important, which deck to work towards with crafting.
       
      Of the nine characters the three I liked most so far were Warlock, Mage and Priest. May have to do with the fact that in M:tG I was most comfortable playing blue based late game control decks, and I found similar enjoyable here, so ideally my target deck of choice would be of the late game control variety as well. More importantly, though, it should be competitive. I also browsed the suggested deck lists for a bit, and got some impressions. On to the clases I liked:
       
      Warlock:
      Clearly the big selling point is the hero power, almost custom made for controllish game play. The Handlock deck from the deck section looks very interesting, albeit maybe a little bit weak to direct damage.
       
      Mage:
      Seems to have about the best or at least most efficient control spells of all the clases (Fireball, Polymorph, ...). The Freeze Mage deck looked very interesting, probably the most intriguing of hte bunch because of its relatively unique gameplan. However the big weakness to the warrior is a bit of a downer.
       
      Priest:
      During my run to level 10 it felt like the most controlling of all the three. However, it also seems to be most reliant on a big board presence. No minions to heal is a big disadvantage, naturally. As such it also seems the most vulnerable to any sort of sweepers, not sure how much of a detriment this will be later on.
       
      So my question to those of you familiar with the Hearthstone constructed 'endgame': With which of these three classes will I become the happiest?
