We over at DodgeRollGames are constantly doing Heroes of the Storm videos to help examine and keep tabs with the state of the meta and the current strength and weaknesses of many of the characters on Heroes.  We have just started an A-Z series that we think is going to be very unique.  Instead of just the one video on each Hero we are letting each member of DodgeRollGames that knows a hero to not only show off what that hero can do, but also maybe a new build to give you a new play style with that hero.  Come join us, we look forward to working with you guys!

Bunch of changes have arrived in the nexus.  BoneDisaster's long awaited tank reworks have dropped on the PTR.  We did this patch as the information was released, before the PTR dropped.  Discussing the changes coming, and the newest characters entering the Storm!  This is just one of the multiple Heroes video released recently, but as it's our first actual podcast we're excited to bring it to you guys!  Come join us!

Thanks a lot!  We're doing our best! :D    

In our special A-Z series we're not only looking at each hero, but we try to shed some light on different builds for a couple of our favorites.  Anub'arak is one of them with Kolosalus touching up on another build for the big scurry bug!  This built is focused more around keeping yourself alive and causing as much trouble for the enemy team as possible.  I mean, it's Kolo people, nuff said. :D

In our most recent A-Z video, we're taking at look at the new and improved Lich King!  Arthas is back and with a heck of a vengeance!  Purplegragon and BoneDisaster do their best to show off a couple of the builds that work really well with the new Lich King.  If all else fails, he brings a bunch of CC (in the form of slows and roots) to any team.  Come join us!

Instead of doing our normal post concerning the videos we got releasing on the channel thought I would share something a little extra special with you guys!  Our FB page is now set up with an App that links you directed to our videos on youtube!  BoneDisaster's wife set it up and got it going, and man is it cool!  Come check this out!

Today on our A-Z series we've fallen on top of Brightwing, the faeriest dragon in the Nexus.  We've got Kolosalus doing his normal support thing, and showing just how good she can be on the support/utility side of things.  Come join us as we jump around the map and heal the crap outta everyone whether they want it or not!

      Hello everyone!

      Here is something I wanted to do for some time now. I recognized that some people complain about the prize of Hearthstone or that you can only achieve higher ranks when you pay real money. I don't want to discuss this topic here (also I totally disagree ;) ). Instead I want to give some advice how to manage your resources (so Gold and Dust) more wisely and therefore get better decks and more fun out of them.

      You may deem some of the advice pretty expected, but maybe the "strategies" I run can still inspire you to wasting less and getting more. But I will still skip the obvious: get as much gold as possible, finish the Brawl every week etc.

      Also Icy Veins (the side you are currently on) has a pretty nice Guide-Section too and I will try not to repeat the hints from there.

      Finally: the hints are mainly for the standard-format.


       
      1.) Know when to stop and save up.

      After purchasing something like 50+ packs you will own nearly all commons, most of the rares, some epics and a few legendaries. So you will draw mainly cards you already own from additional packs. Since drawing cards is much better than crafting them (e.g. you basically save 300 dust, when you draw an epic card you would have crafted otherwise) saving your gold up for the next expansion can be much more valuable than buying more packs for the current set. Just head into your collection from time to time and check all the cards from the set you would have bought packs from. If you realize that you mainly missing out legendaries and a few epics it could be time to stockpile your gold (since the chance of drawing a specific epic or legendary is pretty slim anyways). You should be able to have 3000 to 5000 gold at the start of the next expansion that way.


       
      2.) Only disenchant "useless" cards when you need the dust for a specific reason.

      Sometimes cards that are deemed useless or bad at the beginning of the meta can turn out to be quite powerful later on (e.g. Evolve before and after the release of Doppelgangster). There would be nothing more frustrating than having to craft a card you already disenchanted two sets ago.

      So be very very careful when disenchanting cards that are still legal in standard and never disenchant them only to pile up dust. You can always disenchant a card you own but never take it back.


       
      3.) Use placeholders and build "prototype"-decks first.

      This is a difficult one. Many people want to try out new and innovative decks. This can be quite expensive and you don't know beforehand if the deck will be any good and (most importantly) fun. Thats why it can be a good idea to test out the main functionality of the deck by replacing less important cards with similar (weaker) ones and find out that way if the deck is fun to play with.

      For example: you can play many aggressive decks in the past without (the old) Patches the Pirate by replacing him and the "pirate-package" with other low cost cards. It may be way weaker but the main structure of the deck often stays the same. Other examples would be Cubelock without N'Zoth, the Corruptor or Spell-Hunter without Rhok'delar.


       
      4.) Wait for the meta to settle.

      It is pretty obvious. Don't get carried away by the hype of a new set and craft everything that people call powerful. Cards can quickly fall out of relevance. Not only because they are worse than people thought, but often because the meta turns out to be unfitting for the respective deck. Taunt-Warrior is an example for this. Both Fire Plume's Heart and the Hunter-Quest were hyped, but fell out of relevance rather quickly.


       
      5.) try to craft cards with a wider use first.

      Some cards can only be played in one specific deck and it is pretty obvious from the first spoilers onward that they are. Twin Emperor Vek'lor or basically all the Quests are perfect examples. When you don't know what to play and/or you want to play a bigger variety of decks it can be a good idea to spend your dust on cards that are playable in a bigger range of decks and classes. Obviously neutral cards fit this idea more often.

      Examples are: N'Zoth, the Corruptor for all sorts of Deathrattle-Decks, Kazakus for every type of Highlander-Deck, Alexstrasza or Leeroy Jenkins for combo- or OTK-decks and so on.


       

       
      I play Hearthstone regular since "goblin vs gnomes" and was able to play multiple competitive decks with multiple classes without buying a single pack for real money. But I always had to be very stingy how I spend my resources and I believe that other people have to be too, to get high on the ladder while still having fun and trying out new decks.


      Do you have any additional advices how to get more out of your hard earned gold?
