What's the Actual Legendary "Drop" Rate?

Not too long ago, we posted an article featured on the Kotaku video gaming blog, in which one of their authors wanted to know What It's Like To Spend $50 On Hearthstone Cards. The author now wants to take a more in-depth look at the average patters and card rarity breakdowns with his latest post, Here's How Rare Hearthstone Cards Actually Are. He has started collecting data from users who have opened larger qualities of packs in order to better determine the average distribution of cards of each rarity in these multi-pack purchases. I've actually purchased a 40 pack bundle and will be sharing the data. I didn't get extremely luck with my packs, but at least I did get a Legendary! Anyone else out there buy one of the larger Expert pack bundles? Did you get lucky with legendaries?

i bought in for ten bucks and got a legendary. it was the one that gives you +1/1 for your weapon. i'm thinking of de'ing it.

Captain Greenskin, that's it :D


It's good in a warrior aggro deck.. :) It's never really worth DEing a legendary that you might use once. Because then, it is going to be a pain to craft it again. You get 400 dust out of it, while the craft price is 1600... just meh..

      This week's Tavern Brawl is Captain Blackheart's Treasure. It is the fourth time that this Brawl has been used.
      Captain Blackheart's Treasure was most recently used as the  63rd Tavern Brawl, in late August. This week is the 72nd Tavern Brawl, so as you can see, it is a pretty quick repeat. In this Brawl you are given a deck full of Bloodsail Raiders, and each turn are offered a choice of three cards to put into your hand.
      As always, I would remind people that I feel this is a more skillful Brawl than it first appears. It teaches a lot about planning ahead, and also tempo in general. Given that players can play this Brawl with no cards of their own, I am a big fan of this Brawl from a design standpoint.
      Captain Blackheart's Treasure was originally designed to showcase the Discover mechanic for The League of Explorers. It actually made its debut late however, as it was withdrawn due to technical issues.
