Icy Veins Hearthstone Crafting Guides Updated

Recommended Posts

11037-icy-veins-hearthstone-crafting-gui

 

Over in our Hearthstone section, you will find a specific guide for each class on card crafting - which options you should prioritize as you build out your collection to ensure you can take advantage of the strongest and most versatile deck archetypes from that class. All nine have been recently updated!

 

The crafting guides are listed in our Hearthstone section, and available here:

 

Druid

Hunter

Mage

Paladin

Priest

Rogue

Shaman

Warlock

Warrior

 

In addition to looking at the class-specific cards (including new Goblins vs. Gnomes cards), these guides will also identify relevant neutral and Curse of Naxxramas cards that you may wish to include in your decks for those classes.

 

Check out the updated guides and let us know what you think!

Very nice improvement to the crafting guide; it's good to see the best cards for each ranking for the classes.  On a related note, is there any chance of getting a strictly neutral ranking list?  It'd be nice to see how, say, Sylvanas and Dr. Boom compare across all the classes if I'm trying to decide where to spend my dust.

The problem with that is that it's so meta dependant, it would change on an almost daily basis. The top 1-3 would probably be fairly consistent, but the rest of the list would fluctuate so heavily based on what the strong decks are.

Just to answer your question though, I would slightly favour Dr. Boom, but not as much as many people would have you believe, especially if you're looking to play Control decks. Dr. Boom is kind of replaceable as a late-game threat in Control Decks, but Sylvanas is just such a unique and powerful effect that it's hard to replicate. As mentioned in the guide though, if you're low on card in general, spending 1600 dust on a combination of Rares and Epics will probably improve your decks more than just slamming a Legendary in them.

That's an understandable point; it must be hard enough figuring out the best cards for each class at any given time, let alone trying to determine which are the stand-outs in the game as a whole.  Still, even seeing a list of those solid top 1-3 cards would be kind of nice; as someone without much experience on the ladder, who hasn't really settled on a class and/or deck style, knowing what is considered a solid crafting choice for multiple classes would be nice.  (P.S. I'm not just trying to make more work for you, I promise; I'm genuinely curious.)

 

As for the Dr. Boom vs. Sylvanas issue, I see your points.  While Dr. Boom is a powerful play (particularly with those Boom Bots of his), Sylvanas is definitely a unique force that can change the entire way an opponent plays.  (She's certainly made me modify my plans in the past.)  All of that said, I'll probably spend my dust on Epics/Rares rather than go right for a Legendary; like you say, it'll probably do more to improve my deck(s) if I take that approach.

      We’ve just applied the following adjustments to the The Dalaran Heist solo adventure. You will not need to patch your game client in order to receive these updates.
      BALANCE CHANGES
      Adjusted the rarity of some passive Treasures. Slightly increased the power of the “Togwaggle’s Dice” Treasure. Note: Togwaggle’s Dice does not randomize between 0 and 10, it increases or decreases the cost of cards at random. Normal Encounter Adjustments: Decreased the power of Vas’No’s deck. Heroic Encounter Adjustments: Changed the theme and playstyle of Sky Captain Smigg’s deck to be more aggressive. Increased the cost of Anarii Duskgrove’s “Summon Protectors” to (3). Increased the power of the following Heroic encounter decks: The Amazing "Bonepaw" Dagg Cruelmight Dalaran Fountain Golem Draemus Kazamon Steelskin Valdera Highborne Ol’ Toomba Ichoron Millificent Manastorm Decreased the power of the following Heroic encounter decks: Linzi Redgrin Aki the Brilliant Vas’No Haro Setting-Sun Anarii Duskgrove Tala Stonerage Disidra Stormglory Ranger Ar’ha Ungan Oddkind Bookmaster Bae Chao BUG FIXES
      Fixed a bug that caused Queen Wagtoggle’s Hero Power to summon low-cost minions too frequently. Fixed a bug where Xur’ios would use his Normal deck in Heroic mode.

      After the announcement of the Rise of the Mech event, which brings card buffs and a new Legendary to the game, players realised that an overpowered combo could be created with that new Legendary and Reckless Experimenter.
      As a reminder, the new neutral Legendary is called SN1P-SN4P. Its Golden version will be given for free to anyone who logs in during the Rise of the Mech event, between June 3 and July 1.

      Players quickly realised a broken combo between SN1P-SN4P and Reckless Experimenter that allows for an early-game infinite damage combo in Priest - something that had escaped Blizzard's radar. They quickly amended their omission by nerfing Reckless Experimenter. The Epic Priest minion will still reduce the cost of Deathrattle minions by 3 mana, but the cost now can’t be reduced to less than 1.
      The combo, of course, will still be doable but it will not be infinite. There are other infinite combos with SN1P-SN4P in Wild, along with Mechwarper, but Team 5 has decided to let them be - for now.
      The Reckless Experimenter nerf will go live on June 3, along with the Rise of the Mech update.

      Hey Folks,  
       
      After the announcement of the Rise of the Mech update, we became aware of an interaction between SN1P-SN4P and Reckless Experimenter that allows for an early-game infinite damage combo in Priest. As a result of this, we’ve opted to make a change to Reckless Experimenter to go along with the 14.4 patch (scheduled to release June 3) so this combo is no longer possible. We’re also aware of some interactions that SN1P-SN4P creates in Wild when played alongside multiple copies of Mechwarper. We’ll be keeping a close eye on how that plays out over the following weeks. Here is how the card now reads (updated card asset here) :
       
      Reckless Experimenter – Deathrattle minions you play cost (3) less, but die at end of turn. (Cost can’t be reduced below 1.)  
       
      Once the change to Reckless Experimenter is live, you will be able to disenchant it for its full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.  
       
      Cheers,
      Chris_Attalus

      In Chapter 3 of the Dalaran Heist, the League of E.V.I.L sows chaos in the Streets of Dalaran.
      You can purchase this new chapter as part of the $19.99 complete Dalaran Heist bundle. You can also grab Streets of Dalaran, or other individual chapters, for $6.99 or 700 Gold by purchasing them in the in-game shop.
      Chapter 3 Details

      The twist for this chapter is called Crowded Streets. Three untargetable minions will be present on each player's side of the board, restricting the number of minions that can be in play. You can therefore only have 4 minions up at a time.
      The Heroes
      The Streets of Dalaran chapter introduces two new Heroes: the Priest and the Rogue.
      Kriziki is the Priest hero. Here are its potential Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Lesser Heal (2 mana) – Restore 2 Health. Disort (2 mana) – Swap a minion’s Attack and Health. Soothe (1 mana) – Give a minion -2 Attack until next turn. Starting Decks
      Disciplined – A typical Priest deck with Divine Spirit and Inner Fire, as well as healing spells Shadows – Shadow-themed cards Visions – Deathrattle minions + 0 mana spells The Rogue hero is Captain Eudora, one of the few World of Warcraft characters in the Dalaran Heist. Here are her Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Dagger Mastery (2 mana) – Equip a 1/2 Dagger. Yoink (2 mana) – Add a random card to your hand (from another class). Cut-less (2 mana) – Deal 2 damage to an undamaged minion. Starting Decks
      Skulker – Tempo deck with some Stealth cards Dead Man’s Tale – Deathrattle + Thief cards Kobold’s Desire –  Bouncing and shuffling cards into your deck Rewards
      For now, by beating five bosses in Chapter 3 you will receive three Rise of Shadows card packs. If you have beaten five bosses in each of the previous two chapters, you will now have a total of nine packs. More rewards will follow in the next wings.

      Don't forget to check out our guide for everything you need to know about the Dalaran Heist. We'll be sure to update with the bosses for Chapter 3.
