What Is It Like To Open 40 Packs?
As someone who hasn't spend a dime on Hearthstone, I've definitely wanted to know what it would be like to just open a ton of packs. Recently, a Kotaku author wondered the same thing, and decided to go easy with the $49.99 40 Expert Packs bundle, the largest single bundle that can be purchased. Of course, you can always get lucky and walk out with multiple legendaries but two Kotaku writers broke down the cards received in the purchased bundle in this YouTube video. Of course, your mileage may vary but it's definitely an interesting breakdown!
